three alternative fantasy scenarios for late 2012:
1) we're trying to cope with the aftermath of WW3, having been hit with EMPs on both coasts, and multiple major cities having been nuked; we won't
care they we hit them back BTW.
- limited electrical power; uncontamined food and water are scarce; many deaths; cops and ex-soldiers at work with rival gangs, all raping and
pilaging the suburbs (they'll be too fearful to go into the inner cities that are left).
-70% unemployment; anti-biotics scarce; forget surgery unless you're super rich; many living in gated enclaves protected by private security forces;
limited gasoline available; fuel oil shortages;
2) police state has progressed; martial law in effect due to apparent attacks by "terrorists". much surveillance; neighbors tattling on neighbors,
often for simple revenge. 25% unemployment; flea markets everywhere; the $USD is at 40 on the index (down from 72 today, down from 120+ 3 yrs ago);
the AMERO has been introduced at a rate of 1 Amero to 1.9 US dollars; the Down has dropped to 2000; many people wiped out; a black market economy has
evolved a' la USSR in the 80's. Cops fighting American "insurgents" and protesters (protests will be completely illegal, as will speech or
writing critical of the authorities).
Alternative 3): things are pretty much just like they are now; everyone expecting something to happen, but nothing does; more of the same; SDDS.
US still in Iraq and Afganistan; 12K dead; more cuts in VA funding. inflation running at 12-15%. Hillary has an approval rating of 5% but this is
reported by the MSM as 50%. The inflation rate is reported at 2.5%, as it doesn't included energy or food (sound familiar). The average monthly
social security check will buy groceries for one week; that's it. Cut backs in medical care disguised as cost containment/improved efficiency.
Euthanasia is illegal but widely practiced, sometimes on oldsters at family request.
