Well Buffet is on CNBC right now and I'll go with his view of what is going on and he says Obama is the right man at the right time and we will come out of it and I'm with him.
Fiscal outlays intended to revive economies must be sustained into 2010, Geithner said.
At the moment, statistics from the International Monetary Fund show fiscal stimulus plans are expected to drop off next year, he said.
The global crisis shows no signs of weakening yet. Rather, the recession has been "deepening," according to the most complete data available, Geithner said.
"What we're seeing happen really around the world now is really without recent precedent," he said.

I hope you people have good soil along with plenty of water. Once utilities are taken off line your going to have to get out there and dance around. Hopefully it will rain after that. But it probably won't since your carbon footprint that you leave here is destroying the atmosphere. No food. No water. Just the scorching hot sun and plenty of co2.
That's very unfortunate that people like Gerald Celente are now losing out from all the money they won in the stock market.

Agreed, so save all of the milk jugs, laundry bottles coffee cans you have if your poor, and buy rain barrels if you have some cash, save and store rain water for drought. Keep them full at all times and freshen often, use a tad of bleach to keep mosquitos out.

The short list of what you need to do to prepare:
1. Pack a bug out bag which will allow your family to live three days. You should have clothing, personal care items, food, medicine, camping supplies, maps, etc. Most people use a backpack for each person.
2. Have some cash in small bills on hand. If the ATMs shut down, you will be able to buy food, fuel, etc.
3. Don't just buy heirloom seeds, start a garden with heirloom varieties and save your own seeds. (A good place to start is www.seedsavers.com) It takes three to four months, if you are successful, before you see any produce. It is much easier to expand a small garden than it is to start a large one. This will give you time to learn how to grow, cook and preserve. Buy fruit trees, or if you are on a small lot, look into dwarf and super dwarf trees (smaller varieties, same size fruit).
4. Have a water supply.
5. Figure out a way to cook without electricity such as camp stove, propane, etc.
