EU, the truth is Canada is much further down the socialist road than the US. At first glance I assumed the writer of the piece was looking to us for answers to this global problem. I looked just a bit further and found this is an American commenter on "Canada Free Press".

This JB Williams writes: "I don’t have the answer… Frankly, I expected the people to revolt long before now." CFP describes the writer: "JB Williams is a business man, a husband, a father, and a writer. A no nonsense commentator on American politics, American history, and American philosophy." Other than writing diatribes in a similar tone to Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Karl W B Schwarz and countless others, what is Mr. Williams doing to revolt?

Guess what Mr. Williams? Every non-brainwashed American is doing very much the same as you. Keeping what little they have left intact while spreading the truth. Many are organizing into like-minded voter blocks to affect the 2010 elections. When will you stop writing and lead the armed revolt Mr. Williams? We know, while others jump into the deep end of the pool you will document their demise.

Tough talk is easy, constructive efforts take time, resources and commitment. Outrage against the current administration is building. The campaign promises are being tossed to the curb. Even the sheeple will see clearly and the time is near and it is not too late. Going off half-cocked will only invite and in some minds warrant the socialist agenda that awaits our missteps. The gathering storm is on our side despite the happy talk from the giggling puppet in the White House. That's nervous laughter. BO and his cabinet are being undressed.

EU, I encourage you to take heart. During the American Revolution many colonists could have been described as "largely silent" by these standards. When the time came they stood up and put everything on the line. They left their comfort zones at the appropriate time. I think we will do much the same. It just might not be soon enough to please what I suspect is a rather cozy Mr. Williams.

I trust my fellow Americans in that we will step up when the time is right.

That time has yet to arrive but could come at any moment.


Weelllll. I think something will happen soon. Just a hunch. It's not something you haven't seen before, but nonetheless. Sorry I can't tell you more, but you see, it's only a hunch.

Lord save us from amateur economists. I read through these posts and am amazed at these silly arguments between people most of who have no idea what they are talking about. Has anyone here even studied economics, like in a college? It's freaking complicated!

My friends are actually Economics majors and they aren't half as frenzied as the people i see here. And political affiliation has nothing to do with who thinks what plan is best. It's all risk assessment and fine tuned financial balancing acts. In order to decide what the best course of action is, you need actual numbers which no one in the public sector has access to. All you guys have is charts about how much we borrowed from the Federal Reserve. Do you really think the government would risk hyper inflation if they didn't have a plan. Do you really think your smarter than people who graduated from Harvard business school. What balls.

Face it, you are tools. You are just regurgitating the propaganda you read in articles painting a dumbed down portrait of the economic problems written specifically for the layman and obviously leaning in one direction or another. All the while you pick teams and spout bull to make yourselves feel smarter and impresses strangers. If you had any idea how complicated this stuff really is you'd be more than happy to pass the job onto someone more qualified. And you would realize its not nearly as cut and dry as this toilet paper of an article you've posted here.

That being said I do agree this bailout is just to hold things afloat until the G20/IMF unveils its new currency/globalized economy. _javascript:icon('
')Before you start screaming NWO, consider what I've just said, "what the heck do you know?"

From the ashes of destruction will rise a new world order, a time of peace and rapture. The loss will be great, freedom impeded, separation of class greater, then the world will see a new and final conflict, one which will ignite war between the people and the world order of nations.

-The End-

Great writing for a college boy.

I am a practicing management consultant to Fortune 500 and large government and institutional CFOs. I hold ~100 graduate credits in business and finance from globally respected graduate programs (and no not Harvard, god forbid. They have little clue how to run a company, let alone and economy. The superior education comes from Philadelphia :-) ). My client list includes Fannie Mae, GSA and DoD as well as a good portion of the legitimate Fortune 500. My professional experience includes long stints at PricewaterhouseCoopers, IBM Global Services and Accenture.

Am I allowed to comment?

If so, I can tell you that in all my government or quasi-government experience, INCOMPETENT LEADERSHIP and CORRUPTION were standard operating protocol, especially at Fannie Mae and it gets worse the higher up the chain of command. I told that and more to the senior FBI agents investigating that fever-swamp of thievery and booze & hooker fueled partying...

The fools running our banking and treasury systems are whistling past the graveyard, hopeful that dunb-luck will bail them out if they only delay the inevitable long enough. The only easy way out of this mess -- and therefore the most likely -- is, after middle class wealth has been destroyed, to agree in consensus that the problem is "solved", rather as The Obamessiah declared the emergency past two weeks ago.

We are largely silent because we are in shock.
This is what happens when one is so successfully misled.
It's a little like the husband or wife whose mate is having an affair -
and goes years with feeling something is wrong -
all the while being told it is in their head.
And then learning it is not.

We are finally seeing the consequences of a what happens-
when the foundation of a world - has been built with falsehood and deceit-
It crumbles - and it should.

This activity has been brought on -
by liberals, conservatives, republicans,
democrats, greedy and power hungry folks.

These people come in all shapes and sizes -
includes all races and religions - from all countries -
from all political parties.

We are hopefully reaching the very necessary outing
of a severely corrupt system -

We just have to find the courage now -
to take care of ourselves - learn how to live without
the lies by redefining our purpose and passion.

We have to find the courage to buck this ridiculousness
that we have been fed for so many years.
We have to start thinking for ourselves.
We have to stop being shocked.

Recognizing that this has happened - will lead
us in knowing what we need to do next.

Every FOOL in this country that voted for Obama was warned what he would do and what would happen to this country. Now that reality has set in 100 times faster than ony one thought, they are too embarressed to protest because they do not want their neighbors to know that they voted for the FOOL.

What do you expect? No one knows anything about this guy. He just shows up one day with a piece of paper saying he went to Harvard and then runs for office after a brief stint as a community organizer!!!!

This is his background!!! He will not dispute this or will he confirm this. In my opinion, he has been placed in office by the powers that be, The men in the Shadows, and bought the votes of the people who voted for him.

If you really want to know who voted for, take that prompter away from him, that earwig out of his ear and send his speech writers on vacation. Rumors has it, he actually read answers from a screen on the Leno show when he was asked questions.

I am not buying this guy now nor have I ever even once thought about voting for this fraud!!!

The American People have been duped by the Democratic Scum and the it is really starting to show.........


I would still really like to see that damn birth certificate and the other documents that he refuses to hand over.

Well said, thoroughly thought out, correctly assessed. I gave you a star, but I only wish I could give you a gazillion stars for that. Read my sig - it pretty much sums up my thoughts on the matter.

The silence stems from the fact that the MSM has quieted. No more to see here, please return to your assigned daily repetition. New headlines arrive to fog the brain and dim the consciousness. The robbery becomes a memory and the realization of what has just happened never comes, save for a few unhappy witnesses whose efforts to educate are largely unheard because "everything is going to be ok now".

The problem is not at the top. blaming and anger is only an outlet to allow us to live with ourselves knowing what we have done. No the problem is not them the problem is US!!

We have only ourselves to blame, and acknowledging that makes me want to cry. Oh there have been times when I could say not me. No way did I allow this to happen. Without fail on closer inspection I am aware of the role that I have played. Not that anything I did or didn't do had much of an impact. I just did my part as I was supposed to, playing the game. I knew things weren't right but I played anyway. Oh I complained alot, but on I played. The good consumer.

I am the solution. You, WE, are the solution. The change must happen within the individual. From the bottom up. Time has to be taken to explore ourselves individually. Who are we? what do we want to be? The change starts with us, at the bottom.

Do you really want it??

Everyone is fed, and clothed, and those not working are still getting along. Yes I know there are hardships, but have you ever been homeless and posted on here from your public library?

To many still have to much and are either addicted to the spend and spend fastfood TV lifestyle, or are programed to be afraid or unwilling to change it.I'm afraid that for as much bitching that goes on, there are only a relative few who are truly ready to effect the change. Unfortunate for those few because it will take us all.

I always think that I am smarter than everybody. Does that seem like an unusual attitude to you, in your slice of society? Leaving me out of it, more broadly, if someone is stupid AND confident, said human has better survival fitness (it seems obvious to me) than in the other case of being stupid+indecisive or stupid+self-doubting, stupid+timid...however it is that you would prefer to characterize the more fitting attitude that you are urging on us above (acceptance of the appeal to authority without rational elucidation, grovelling before the (self-promoting careerism of the) "best people", ...their "trade, art, and mystery" in the old legal sense...)

The advantage of being stupid and confident is that at least you will come to a decision FAST...being stupid you won't be equipped to evaluate the merits properly, but through random luck you'll jump the right way every so often...whereas if you're stupid and deferring to the competing massed choirs of experts, you won't know who to believe and are likely to vacillate...which (it seems to me) hardly ever confers much of a competitive advantage... This adaptive benefit might account for how come I see stupid and confident people so very often...Come on in, the water's fine...

Not all change is destructive, and even then the term has relative meaning depending on who you ask.

What if it is the will of God? What if this is a cleansing, as comes when you purge what makes you ill? What if we are being thrown into the fire to be reborn?

I say press on to save and salvage what is most important in our nation - politically, culturally, etc. - but do not expect the hand of God to guide or assist you in your efforts if you go against His will. Of course you must realize what that is first.

God's will be done, whatever it may be.

To the person that called people in this thread unintelligent because we are not economists, you underestimate the fact that our good common sense explains why we are all paranoid. It does not take an economist to put all the information we have been given to see that it is a slippery slope we are midway down. We are just not privy to the game rules so we all are doing our best to guess what will happen next, but it's pretty clear things have been orchestrated. It does not take an economist to figure out that if you lend money to people that don't deserve a loan, if you allow the giant wall street game to get so big with no umpire in sight, you could easily sink an economy. If I can figure that out, you don't think the savvy govt types knew what was coming? Orchestrated.

For all that want to politicize our current situation. left-right, come on! Bush 2 set big motions, but he was only allowed 8 years, now the next one that was asigned the job must do his part. Atleast that's how I see it, no reason to even argue down party lines, right now it's our party (the people) against there's.

I think you are not alone in this observation or your opinion -



Peter Principle

The Peter Principle is the principle that "In a Hierarchy Every Employee Tends to Rise to His Level of Incompetence." While formulated by Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull in their 1968 book The Peter Principle, a humorous treatise which also introduced the "salutary science of Hierarchiology", "inadvertently founded" by Peter, the principle has real validity. It holds that in a hierarchy, members are promoted so long as they work competently. Sooner or later they are promoted to a position at which they are no longer competent (their "level of incompetence"), and there they remain. Peter's Corollary states that "in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out his duties" and adds that "work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence".

Source : Wikipedia


Certainly my own experience would concur with both your own and Dr. Peter's

“Is the table being set for One World Government rather than speeding the recovery of the worldwide recession at next week’s G20 London summit?”


The answer to that is a resounding "yes." I believe obama was placed in office because of his ability to sell socialism to people under the guise of recovery. The reason people are silent is because they are hypnotized by his catchy rhetoric and slogans. They simply can't see that obama's "progressive" tactics are a ruse to usher in the NWO.
Is obama aware that he is being used in such a way? I honestly don't know. maybe he sincerely believes he is doing what's right for the country, but i have my doubts about that.

I saw a thread here on ATS not too far back about 3 million French people protesting.

Did their protest make any difference in French policy?

I didn't think so.

But I can guarantee you that the day Americans get serious, you will see a difference.
