OK I didn't get much of a chance to "rebut" due to the fact that I was surfing from my Crackberry earlier.
1. I have seen this before, tied to Steve Quayle. If I had a dollar for everytime he's contrived an email "predicting" an apocalyptic/collapse
event or spewing forth "insider information" or "a source", I would very nearly have enough funds to build my very own Vault 101. (shameless
Fallout 3 reference) IMO Steve Quayle is about a half-step above Sorcha Faal. Heck, he makes Alex Jones look like Walter Cronkite...even AJ nailed
2. I do put more credence in the Schultz letter, but IMO that letter is nothing that can't be gleaned from facts learned regarding past events.
It's a hypothesis, nothing more. The fact that it's a VERY plausible hypothesis still doesn't change the fact that it is a theory.
3. Regardless of what internet blowhard regurgitates commonly available facts and masks them behind an anonymous source, the economy worldwide is in
serious trouble. The US deficit is in stratospheric levels and TPTB (not the shadowy PTB, but the REAL ones, i.e. the Fed, Treasury, etc) are either
hurting more than helping or are rapidly running out of moves on the chessboard.
Eventually our biggest financiers and purchasers of US Debt are going to stand up and say that it's time to cut their losses and step away from the
table. Hell, people. Go to the grocery store and compare prices vs. product to only a few years ago. Just today I made a comment to a coworker that
the $0.99 bags of Doritos seemed so much smaller than they used to be. It's not only that prices are rising (inflation) but that you're getting
less product for those higher prices. Use that bag of Doritos figuratively and compare it to *all* commodities. More money is buying less product.
Meanwhile, people have less money to spend on those commodities at the same time as prices are rising.
True unemployment is approaching 20% or more in some areas after workers that are no longer able to receive benefits and workers only working part
time are factored into the equation. I saw a fleeting blurb the other day that predicted 45% of US homeowners are predicted to be 'upside down' on
their mortgages by 2010 (?) or something like that. These people are STUCK.
The bottom line is that we should *all* stop focusing on the "OMG the world will end on *****" BS internet rumors and start concentrating on the
fact that we are in dire straits. Yes, it is in my belief that at some point the economy (and possibly nation) is absolutely going to collapse. It
will be a VERY good idea to prepare yourselves accordingly. Such a collapse of a world superpower has not happened in a long time and not as quickly
as this one will, so take this website with a grain of salt. My friend Fernando lives in Argentina; he is surviving there and has gone through their
economic collapse in 2001. His website is a cornucopia of knowledge for one that seeks to learn how to live through a major economic collapse. Read
up and learn. Surviving in Argentina
For the record, I truly do not believe things will be as polite and civilized post-collapse here in the US as they have been in Argentina. They did
not have the entitlement sense there that we do now. Here...it will be bad. Very bad. My family is from the New Orleans area and I have a very good
idea of how it "really" was on the ground. Think Katrina, but 10x worse and nationwide.
