It's after 7:30 p.m. and night is almost upon us. There is a faint glow but not much. Sort of like the economic outlook for this country right now. And it is getting darker by the day.
The fedgov and the Brits are taking the first steps to nationalizing the banking systems of their respective countries. Whoopee shit. Be the first nation at the able to own your own failed system! Be unique among nations! Do the dumb thing first and relax for a while.
The word you don't use in the media is Depression. This word is taboo. Even the blogggers are a little hesitant to voice it, but not entirely. And I don't think we will come out of this one. We will be attacked from off-shore before we could ever get our strength back to normal. America, the mighty colossus that strode the earth and caused it to shake, is going down. And many will go down with it. Sorry boys, things just didn't work out. What's that you say? What happened to the trillions of dollars you invested in us? Well, the market took a turn for the worse and now it is debt forgiveness time. You understand, I'm sure. (loud BOOMS in the background)
We should still have good farmland, unless it starts to glow in the dark. After the attack, gather you up about 150 close friends and go claim some of it. You will need all sorts of stuff but if you have been reading here you will know the basics of getting it on with life and the living of it.
I think that the time may be approaching when they will shut our Internet down, for various and sundry reasons. The truth is we have an incredible communications system and they don't like it. We are to be the Mushroom People. We are to be fed shit and kept in the dark. They don't like the way news travels around the country and the globe. They don't like Fer Fal telling us about Argentina and the shitty little tricks the government pulled down there. They don't like for us to hear about how to protect yourself from robbers and bandits. They don't like The Daily Reckoning talking about how stupid the government really is. They don't like the joke sent to me by the Hermit:
Back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it.
They failed and it closed.
Now we are trusting the economy of our country to a pack of nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling booze?
These people are basically weak and they think they are the chosen to rule the earth. They are not the chosen rulers. They have not got the goods to do it. Fascism is about the sum total of their political thought. And don't blame me cause I didn't do it!
More in the morning, I reckon. Until then, stay alive.
