Apocalypse Now: Endless Depression

New Congress & Senate? Recall the GOP and their neo-con policies. Combine that with the Taxed Enough Already crowd and what we are going to have, in Coburn’s words, “Apocalyptic Pain“. Massive cuts, probably not to DHS, the military, Treasury or an almost endless list of bureaucracies, no cuts to bailouts, but cuts to all the benefits to the people (like health care, social security, loss of pensions), mean a cruelty of Keynesian economics that Americans have NEVER seen.

Blatant evil, hidden or covered up in newspeak, has arrived in the form of our ‘trusted leaders.’

Webster Tarpley describes what is coming in the next year and following as an ‘‘Endless Depression.’

Treason in High Places

scorched earth liberty

Scott McClellan now has to come out and DEFEND HIMSELF even though the only thing he has done is to expose the horrendous treason foisted on the American people and the world.

What has this preposterous and evil nightmare of an administration cost America for its incomprehensible purposes?

It has cost us the CONSTITUTION- with the Patriot Act and so many other legislative events, the citizens are now enemies of their own government!

We are now subject to intense surveillance, are staring down the impending micro-chipping of our very persons, likely to be arrested and imprisoned for protesting, criticizing or opposing the decisions and the events that are unfolding before our eyes.

The fascism that is coming about is staring us in the face, has been completely legislated, has been supported by private militias and UN troops on OUR SOIL, and is ready to be implemented against us at the drop of a hat. ALL WITH THE BLESSING OF THE HOUSE, THE SENATE, AND THE SUPREME COURT!

We are now more dangerous than any other country in the world. By abandoning the Just War Doctrine, and pursuing a ‘pre-emptive’ unprovoked strike policy, every other nation in the world perceives itself to be at risk of a wild and unprovoked strike against them. There is no basis upon which we can operate responsibly in the world of diplomacy. America is now, like never before, at risk of other nations taking a ‘defensive’ first strike against us for no other reason than being criticized in the media!

It has cost us the economy. The terrible inflation that we are all experiencing in reality, but that mainstream media, Wall Street and the government denies and fudges over, is costing Americans their property, their livelihoods, their savings, their retirements. The effects of this have only just gotten started, and we have an enormous way to fall. Depression for us is inevitable, all the while the wealthy cronies get bailouts in the billions, laughing at Americans all the way to their ‘dual citizenship countries.’

Crony capitalism has cost us our industry, our jobs, and the American dream. It is bringing on our heads super-governmental organizations like NAFTA, NAU and expanding the relations with the UN, with troops brought to America that agree to fire on our own citizens.

The Vice President has declared that the US Constitution DOES NOT APPLY to the office of Vice President!

It has proven to the world that they are correct and America is little more than the stupid big brother of Israel. We went to war based on Al Qaeda being the worst and most dangerous terrorist organization in the world, but now that Israel has failed to take down Hezbollah, Hezbollah is replacing Al Qaeda as the greatest monster. Couldn’t be just coincidence, could it?

It has cost us thousands of lives, and many thousands of permanently disabled American vets, and has put us at very grave risk of nuclear war. Millions have already died, millions upon millions WILL die, all to do what… give a ‘legacy’ to the Bush Administration?

We haven’t even gotten around to discuss Chinagate and the treasonous sale of our nuclear secrets to China by the Clinton administration! This is ready to overcome America at any time now! China has said that all bets are off after the Olympics in August. They hold the Panama Canal against us, hold all the major ports to our south, have all the military secrets about America that they’ll ever need. Plus, a 100 million man standing army who will NEVER have a wife or family…

It is WAY PAST TIME for this administration, the previous administration and all the way back to Gerald Ford to be charged with HIGH TREASON, and investigated thoroughly for every single instance of it in every department, every office, every crony connection. Every Congress and Senate needs to be charged and investigated for the same.

The PEOPLE need to DEMAND of the current roster of so-called ‘representatives’ WHY THEY AREN’T ACTING IN THE INTERESTS OF AMERICANS???

Failure to do this is to lose our country altogether. If we let this go, with the VAST AMOUNTS of evidence available to us, then we have no reason to complain that we have lost our country, are starving, are imprisoned, and our children have no future. We deserve what we get.

But THIS is the roster of ‘statesmen’ the powers-that-be are railroading into the presidency!

What we NEED is COMPETENT and experienced STATESMEN, those who are COMMITTED to America, to the Constitution, to a proper and healthy world citizenship.

How much does this governance have to cost us before we say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!” ???

The time to act is NOW.

Dr. Death to Put Michigan Out of its Misery?


When we’re sick, depressed, and helpless, we COUNT on our doctors, loved ones and family to help get us through those times, with love and compassion.

Yes, there are illnesses that finally, pain medication doesn’t help but those are RARE.

Yet DOCTOR Kevorkian had no interest in fulfilling the doctor’s role, and instead of being of help and support to those who needed it, decided the best way was to just kill them.

People who were treatable, who could have a quality of life that was worth living, who should have been SAFE with their doctor, are the ones Kevorkian killed. There was no need for it, which is why he was imprisoned. That’s where he should stay.

Jack Kevorkian, too sick to serve his prison time, too mentally sick to serve the constitution, has decided to run for office in Michigan. I take it as a sign of how ill Michigan is, that he could even be considered a candidate.

As desperate as the depressed economic situation is in Michigan, the politicians STILL act as if Michigan was an economic powerhouse and are taking all the money and property they can get their hands on, without regard to the people.  Its hard to imagine anyone doing a worse job.

So, perhaps Michigan will elect “Dr. Death” Kevorkian to put it out of its misery. It probably needs it.

The 2 Parties Have Spoken: You’re Getting a Depression!

mortgage crisis

Both parties COULD pay attention to the economy. Both parties have IGNORED the economy and the Depression freight train headed our way.

They’re continuing to spend, spend, spend, borrow, borrow, borrow as if we are made of nothing but money.

They simply don’t care that Americans have already lost $600 BILLION on their homes, and we are only, at best, half-way through the crisis.

They don’t care that Abu Dhabi has been approached to bail out Citibank and therefore tighten Islam’s noose around our financial necks.

They don’t care that China, who has promised that war with us in inevitable, is the one that we must borrow from to continue an illegal war.

They’ve gotten the puppets they wanted.

We’re not playing THAT game ANYMORE.

Ron Paul- Third Party.

Pick Your Pain: Realities of Political Change

pain sticks
We are all aware that we are moving into a time where we get to pick our pain, or rather, our pain is being picked by for us by others.

Time wants to know: “How bad will the mortgage crisis get?” They do happen to mention: “The Bush Administration’s… stimulus/rebate package… Federal Reserve’s aggressive rate cuts…won’t stop the carnage…banks will eventually run out of capital.”

Ron Paul has told us that printing more money that provides the ‘capital’ only worsens the problem, because it creates inflation and destroys the dollar.

Worthless money has a name: Depression.

That kind of pain almost no one in America, except our seniors, have any kind of experience with.

Pain is to turn to alternative monies, like the Amero or the Euro which is ” the way politicians are trying to work themselves out of the fall of the dollar.” Yet, if the money you have, like the dollar, is worthless, what will you use to purchase any other form of currency? You can only, like our own government is doing, ‘sell off the assets’ that you have. This process may ease the pain, and buy some time, but if you’ve ever had to sell off all your belongings at fire sale prices, you understand the huge difference between what you paid, and what you get.

Yet the means by which the government managed to slowly drag the American economy out of the depression are no longer available to us. They used the institution of Social Security to provide income to certain individuals, initiated other government paid programs to increase employment, and transformed the economy into a government managed one. In our day, these programs are so expensive and overbloated, that it is only a matter of a short time and they themselves will contribute to the decline of our economy, instead of spurring its improvement.

Pain is transforming into a production economy instead of a consumer economy will also create incredible difficulties. With the collapsing value of ‘assets’ and an import economy, where means and methods of production have been long ago exported from the country, mean that locally, expenses associated with actual production of valuable commodities exceeds the amount that can be paid for them because of the artificially low prices of the ‘competition.’

Pain is attempting to make micro-economics work for Americans once again. Government regulation is so vast that even what we can have in our yards or garages is dictated by legislation. With ordinances and enforcement, you cannot have chickens, cows, or even sheep without special variances.

Creativity in surviving the ‘correction’ of vast over-spending and enrichment of corporations wildly in excess of their value to the economy is best taken from unusual sources.

Doing Business Under Fascism, The

Since we’ve already suffered under a Vampire Economy, the creative means by which other individuals have found to do business for their own survival may contribute something to our own efforts.

In any case, we are looking at some serious economic pain coming up. Ron Paul happens to understand, and know how to deal with, the various types of pain to come. An expert in economics, a dissenter from every damaging piece of legislation and spending throughout his terms, he perhaps can help us to ease the pain of the crash landing that we are headed for.

Can YOU run the gauntlet?
