There is a solution. Stop. Just plain stop. Pay lights and water, and live on what you have stored up. Don't pay the bank, don't make the credit
card payment, don't pay make the car payment, don't pay the dentist, and the florist, and the newspaper delivery, and the repair shop, and the
finance company, and all the rest.
If enough Americans could get together in their own conspiracy, we could shut it down. A month of hoarding and stockpiling, and then two months of no
work, no gas purchases, no grocery purchases, no Wal-Mart, no anything, and the bastards would be groveling.
And it will come to that. No, Americans don't have the backbone to do it in a planned way, to force them while we still have the ability to be
something besides the victim. But it will come to that, because you can't burden the donkey with but so much before it lays down and dies.
Hard times are coming. Bet your silk underwear on that. But because Americans as a whole are so divided, the big boys will ride it out. They couldn't
ride out a passive economic attack where everyone stopped being a consumer, but as long as it is a little at a time, they can ride the tiger.
The problem is really that the tiger has forgotten that it is the tiger.
