My opinion is we will see some states have a massive exodus in search of work, shelter and food. I look for Calif. to have a massive exodus of people
once the state government continues to hand out IOUs to who they owe. Unemployment will then sore in Calif. partly because of lack of trust and faith
that anyone will be paid what they are owed because Calif. is essentially broke.
My opinion as things get much worse starting June of 2009 you will see other states set up check points to keep other individuals from crossing their
state borders to take advantage of their social welfare programs. The few successful states will become very protective of what they have and will not
be apt to share.
This is a progression and very perdictable what will happen to the U.S. economy in the future. Here is the lay persons indicator and best guide to the
economic future, watch the stock market week by week month by month. I believe from all the info. I have gathered the melt down or collapse of the
economy will be somewhere between April and June of 2009. Like a thief in the night it will be upon us before we know it.
Keep watching the unemployment numbers and when the benefits run out that is when the real trouble starts. No matter how much money is pumped into the
economy it is a temporary band aid. My opinion The United States of America has been intentionally set up for a fall.
Doesn't it seem strange that the bail outs always go to the banks first instead of to We The People. You know why because they own and control
everything including our politicians. Actually search and see who owns the media and find out who owns the big mortgages on houses and properties of
our elected officials. So now you know the rest of the story.
Now this administration thinks by handing out stimulus checks to the majority that does not actual pay taxes figured at the end of the year is going
to help solve the economic problem. Again another band aid.
Why not implement tax breaks where you keep a bigger percentage of your own money you earn on an on going basis to stimulate the economy by
individuals making more purchases.
Oh I see if the government sends you a check out of no where then We The People will be harder to ween off the welfare mentality and the government
will take care of you thing. Wait a minute the Federal Reserve does not get to draw interest on the money you earn right away.
The U.S. government has to borrow money by producing treasury bills to the Fed therefore the Federal Reserve holds the notes and charges interest for
every dollar printed so let me ask you what is wrong with that picture?
The Federal Reserve is not a government agency it is a private bank and a big reason why we are trillions and trillions in debt. In other words we
borrow money and go deeper and deeper in debt and it will come a time where the United States of America can not pay for the interest on the debt.
The clock is ticking and the point of no return alarm for not being able to payoff the interest on the debt is set for 12 o'clock P.M. it is now
The Social Security fund has been dipped into and misused and that should of never ever been touched. Did they get your permission to take money from
yours and everyone elses social security retirement fund? I do not think so and what would you call that in anybody elses book?
So 2 + 2 = 2 You ask how is that? Isn't the answer 4? Well the second 2 disappeared before it could be added 2 + = 2 Well where did it go? I
do not know it's not accounted for, but can I and everyone else look at your books to find the other 2? No that is not allowed.
Be prepared. Where have I heard that before? I remember when I was a Boy Scout.
