Back, right after 9/11, Osama bin Laden promised us that "he would bring ruin to us financially". I'm just throwing ideas out there, like usual,
but what if Al Qaeda was somehow responsible for the financial crisis. I don't get economics, but maybe they did some offshore trading and caused the
housing market to go to pieces. Or somehow funded Asian car companies to put the American competition out of business.
That's right, from somewhere in a cave in Afghanistan or Pakistan, this bearded man and his walkie talkie brought the most powerful economy in the
world to it's knees. Please!!
Al-Qaeda was created by the CIA during the 80's to fight the Russians in a war of attrition via the mujahadeen. It just so happens that Ted Osmond,
sorry, that's his CIA name, Osama bin Laden, rather, our former ally, could actually be used as the boogie man to scare the US population into
submission by allowing our bill of rights to fade away. How convenient.
However, we haven't seen Ted for years and all they keep playing are undated tapes, or they keep using an old video with someone who doesn't even
resemble him. I would bet he is definitely dead. Otherwise, he would not tolerate having his supposed #2 (Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri) taking all the TV
spotlight. Remember, Osama is only valuable alive. So we have to "keep" him alive by all means necessary.
Oh, and yes, the only reason why our economy grew exponentially the way it did in just three decades was because there was nothing to back its
currency with (gold). We printed as much money as our printing presses were able to. However, this pyramid game must come to an end.
The bailout/steroid game is only a band-aid. What does $6 billion to GM mean if people are not buying cars? It's only temporary.
Wake up sheople!
