Yes, only three little words separated America from its only remaining manufacturing, especially that done by the Big Three.
Over 3 million jobs, or perhaps more, will be lost.
All the retirement, all the health insurance, all the living wages for American families that are provided by the Big Three are nearly over.
There is NO INDUSTRY in line to replace ANY of it.
Perhaps we have to learn the hard way. Giants that are too big to fail are also too big to save, unless they happen to have the designation “global bankers” who get a free lunch, free bonuses and free … whatever they want, without oversight or regulation of any kind.
But when the PEOPLE depend on an industry, well, no misery, no politicking, no harshness is sufficent to torture US, to destroy our lives, destroy our states, destroy our economies- all based on a sudden ‘principled-ness’ that rarely shows up any other time.
7 million people died during the last Great Depression.
The population was only in the arena of 55 million men, women and children.
Most of those people had their own farms and could grow their own food.
Most of those people had no debt of any kind.
Most of those people had money that was backed by gold.
Most of those people lived near other family members who could help and support each other during hard times.
Most of those people knew how to grow food, manage animals, sew, make fabrics, preserve food, and so forth.
All of those people still had constitutional rights.
None of those things are true this time around.
We have been lied to and manipulated at every turn. Our apathy, our gullibleness, our arrogance blinded us to what was actually right before our eyes. Our politicians ignored every expert that spoke up on behalf of the people. They only had ears for the ones with the money… the ones who gain from this despicable turn of events.
The ones who engineered this catastrophic economy are now in charge around the world.
We’ll have to learn this lesson the hard way.
The really, really hard way.
Everyone is looking for the ‘growth industries’ that may be the key to surviving this cascading economy. The best advice, aside from investing in gold and silver (for those who have money), is to consider health care, especially geriatrics.
During the Clinton Administration, welfare benefits, including health insurance, were severely curtailed, but an under-reported effect of that draconian cutting was that hospitals, especially charitable and public hospitals, experienced a horrendous loss of funds. This during the time of HMOs and PPOs that privatized profit and socialized expenses- our disdain for our own people while embracing the vampiricism of the rich is actually a huge injustice and a great shame on our nation. This is far more important to remember today than it has ever been.
That mechanism is staring us in the face once again under this capitalist/fascist regime- bailing out the financial industry that sucked all profits and all wealth from our people, we now are facing a bitterly fought bailout of the ‘Big Three’- the only major industry left in our country that ACTUALLY provides income to families, ACTUALLY provides product WORTH something, actually does business with untold thousands of small business owners. It is ALSO the MAJOR HEALTH INSURANCE PROVIDER IN THE UNITED STATES.
Don’t want to bail out the Big Three because there are still (castrated) unions there? Don’t want to bail out the Big Three because they had the nerve to fly in on old private jets??? (The financiers didn’t even have to bother with appearing. They just picked up the phone and walked away with trillions in free and unaccountable funds! They didn’t even have to move from their yachts).
Aside from the American families, American small businesses and American suppliers that the Big Three supports to the tune of at least 3 MILLION living wage jobs- by itself nearly 10% of the population, if we LOSE their CONTRIBUTION to the health care industry, we will see massive closures of hospitals and clinics all over the country.
New legislation forcing doctors, health care professionals of all types and pharmacists to give treatments and drugs that violate their conscience and professional oaths brings thought policing to a new and extremely dangerous level. They paid for their own education. They paid their dues at university, in residencies, in investing in practices. Socializing their consciences and ignoring WHO made the investment in money, talent, time, intellect, practice, facilities, marketing and etc. is a rising evil that risks much.
Most of the charity hospitals are Catholic, and we are already seeing Bishops proclaiming that if legislation passes forcing them to have ANYTHING to do with the slaughter of the unborn, the Catholic hospitals will close. Period.
Can your tax dollars bail out public hospitals and replace charity hospitals & clinics so you’ll have someplace to take your own family members in emergencies, illnesses, infections?
Yes, health care will be a BIG GROWTH INDUSTRY, alright, but not in the way Wall Street talks about it.
Without the BIG THREE’S CONTRIBUTION, there will ONLY be growth in the number of ill and disabled people with no medicines, no treatments, no professional care. Growth in the number of seniors whose retirement funds failed, whose health insurance failed, whose homes are foreclosed on, whose illnesses will not only remain untreated, but will require others to take them in and care for them. Growth in the ‘suffering industry’ for old and childless feminists and perpetually teenaged old Don Juans who are seeking SOMEONE to care if they’re alive or dead, in pain or comfortable, have a roof over their heads, food in their mouths, insulin for their diabetes…
Ignoring minimum human charity, minimum human dignity, and ‘unalienable’ Constitutional Rights in Terri Schiavo’s case happened FOR A REASON.
Would Americans accept a disabled woman’s loss of her Constitutional Rights to life? Would we accept that, like the Nazis, food and water are extraordinary provisions for those ‘in care’?
Yes, we did- our politicians, our courts, our media, our people- all accepted that denying food and water to a living American who was not dying is permissible for any reason at all.
WE ARE ALL about to experience the true ‘growth industry’ in this country and the burden of it, and the suffering of it, will be all ours. The elites, the politicians, the corporate fascists will be able to fly anywhere in the world on private jets to get all the health care they need or want.
Not you, though.
Yes, buy the tired old bullshit line ‘the unions ruined everything’ when the unions have been busted and impotent for years. Buy the puritan ethic that tells us that if a person is blessed by God he’ll be healthy, wealthy and wise and therefore the manufacturing industry isn’t blessed but actually should be PUNISHED.
Care for everyone and every issue in the world except those that negatively affect Americans.
As goes Michigan, so goes America. Mark my words.
There was a time, not long ago, when Oakland County, Michigan was one of the three richest counties in the United States. However, since the global bankers have ratcheted up their globalization efforts, there are few places that have been more devastated, had more wealth sucked off of the populace, than Michigan.
Consider: banks have actually been the ones deciding who gets money, who keeps money, and how money gets shared around, based on its lending criteria. While activists and politicians have concurred with global corporate media that these standards were good and right- you can’t let the PEOPLE and the MARKET decide who should have credit access, can you?- the trumpet that has been tooted for years about the woes of poverty was EDUCATION.
The citizens dumped mountains of money into the black hole of liberal education.
And the bankers decided who got the loans to pay for over-priced education and who didn’t.
Poverty remained. Despite one of the most vibrant economies in the world. Despite the presence and influence of the automobile companies. You remember the “Big Three”, right?
Once the global bankers were able to get hold of the ‘Big Three’ it wasn’t long before that entire industry was completely trashed. Where these companies had built up the economy of the world, where automobiles, the ability to buy and use them was the PREMIER signal that a developing nation was TRULY developing, the entire world changed because of Michigan’s Auto industry.
Now its gone. Parceled out. ALL profits taken from it, and the secondary industries like car repair, parts manufacture, and even full-service gas stations, independently owned, all of them, destroyed.
The bankers BLAME YOU. The media BLAME YOU.
According to the LIES, YOU were the one buying homes and cars that you simply couldn’t afford. YOU were the one buying things with the equity in your home that you shouldn’t have.
The hard working and RESPONSIBLE citizens of Michigan helped make the world a DIFFERENT PLACE than it had been, a level of income generation and prosperity the world had never seen before.
But, thanks to the REFUSAL to permit credit, the normal, world-changing, production economy of Michigan is in a free-fall collapse.
The ‘Big Three’ is vampirized, gutted, and the remains of the carcasses shuttled off, and nothing but a graveyard is left behind with living dead citizens waiting for the next hammer blow to fall.
The border between Canada and Detroit is backed up for hours as the global lackey Homeland Security personnel make trade, tourism and interaction between our formerly friendly countries a torturous, time consuming and expensive endeavor.
Michigan taxpayers have dumped VAST amounts of money into our schools. Home of one of the TOP TEN Universities in the world, that school and hospital conglomerate wouldn’t even exist if it wasn’t for the commitment and investment Michigan citizens made over the years.
Now, the bankers have decided that the State can’t even borrow the money for the well-established student loan programs.
This won’t be the end of the banker’s refusal to allow the State to borrow. The state politicians have raised every tax and fee they could dream up, but it still hasn’t been enough money. Rather than cut government, eliminate the excessive influence the bankers and their buddies in insurance, finance, and all the thousand tentacles of power that are choking the state; the dumb-blonde politics are still believing the bankers will help save Michigan.
Not so. The assets that remain in Michigan CANNOT be seized by the few elites if the citizens retain power, and therefore the citizens must be DRIVEN OUT.
An END to credit, EVEN FOR GOVERNANCE, is the easiest and a very effective way, TO TAKE AN ENTIRE STATE.
To quote the official: “We just can’t go out and borrow money right now, and that is the bottom line.” Detroit News, April 24, 2008.
The credit is CUT OFF for Michigan, and it has NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR IRRESPONSIBILITY.
It has everything to do with the assets that YOU have and the globalists WANT.
Like the Great Lakes and their fresh water?
Keep believing the lies and soon the Great Lakes will be the Great Bogs and the rest of the State will be the Great Backwater.

By the way, is Michigan ‘past peak’ and the problem is NOT free fiat money, printed by the Federal Reserve, given to whom THEY choose, multiplied by 40 by ‘fractional banking reserve’ and then spread around to who THEY want to? Our obligations to pay back that ‘free money’ by 40x? We pay back with interest what others take for free, multiply out for free? And THIS is OUR fault….
