I am implying that if you state enough scenarios over time you will be proven correct eventually.

By the way, I've been right for about the last +3500 Dow points.

Man your battle stations ladies and gentlemen. Chris Waltzek interviews "close combat practitioner" Gerald Celente Tues the 15th. This be some world-class bunker-porn. For a minute there...even I considered ordering 1000ft of concertina wire.

Golden Nugget - 23min audio.

I see a number of people who seem miffed because Celente is not 100%. This is trends research, not a crystal ball. His record is good and he dares tread where the corporate-owned MSM propaganda refuses to go.

Two things to keep in mind about current events.

First, the US economic system is huge with a significant amount of inertia. It may take abnormal amounts of waste, fraud, abuse, neglect and other criminal activity before it finally crashes. Point being -- the crash will absolutely happen -- but may be delayed somewhat due to the robust nature of the economic beast. The simple fact is that they can't flood the system with valueless money without having consequences.

Second, I believe various sectors of our markets (like gold) are being manipulated to some extent by various mechanisms and people. While I'm sure most people are operating under economic self-interest, I suspect others are operating under their own agenda. The actions of these people are only predictable when you understand their agenda.

In Feb 09 on Glenn Beck Radio Celente forecast....

The cities are going to look like Dodge City. They're going to be uncontrollable. You're going to have gangs in control, motorcycle marauders. You're not going to have enough police or federalis, just like Mexico, to control the situation. New York City looks like Mexico City. If you have money or they think you're going to have money, you're going to be a target for a kidnapping. We're going to see major cities look like Calcutta. There is going to be the homeless, panhandlers, hookers.we are going to see petty thieves and we're going to see pick-pockets. - GC

Yikers!!!

From March 09....

The Greatest Depression” that The Trends Research Institute forecast, well before Wall Street or Washington would acknowledge recession, is upon us. - GC

Couple months later May 09....

The Greatest Depression" -- that we forecast would begin to set in by the end of this year -- may have been postponed, but it has not been averted. - GC

From is upon us..to..may have been postponed ?

From his 08 forecast titled Top Trends 2008:
Panic and Fear — Solutions and Hope


The implications of a nation in decline are already in the making. As legitimate options to earn real money dwindle, the business climate for crooks and cons of every stripe and social order to invent new scams (and bring back new ones) to fleece easy marks, will expand across the social spectrum. - GC

No kidding. After scaring the bejeezus out of people , he closes his email with....

Publisher’s Note: If you have friends, family or acquaintances who still cling to “hope” and hope for “change”, you may consider giving them a holiday gift of hard facts, penetrating analyses and prescient forecasts … a subscription to the Trends Journal. - GC

First and last , Celente is a business man...high profile for the past couple years.

Nigerian scammer ? ...no. Opportunistic ? ...maybe. His forecasts are fundamentally sound , but they're based upon trends that my 13yr old could probably divine if he put his efforts to it. I just think his conclusions are a bit over the top.

Excessive drama can stir strong emotions...fear sells subscriptions.

On the other hand , if the US should suffer an hyperinflationary event , it could happen overnight...in one forex session. In that case I'll gladly eat every word I just typed.....otherwise I might starve.

Not a problem.

Would you like that concertina with or without claymores? I'm also offering a 2 for 1 special on 55 gallon drums with our very own proprietary mix of foo gas for the low, low price of $375.00 per drum!! How many can I put you down for?

Hi praxis. Would have responded sooner but I was busy walking [wire-less] perimeter.

Let me take a wild guess: You don't fit the following profile ?



Are Americans a Broken People? Why We've Stopped Fighting Back Against the Forces of Oppression

By Bruce E. Levine, AlterNet. Posted December 11, 2009.


A psychologist asks: Have consumerism, suburbanization and a malevolent corporate-government partnership so beaten us down that we no longer have the will to save ourselves?

Can people become so broken that truths of how they are being screwed do not "set them free" but instead further demoralize them?

Has such a demoralization happened in the United States?

Do some totalitarians actually want us to hear how we have been screwed because they know that humiliating passivity in the face of obvious oppression will demoralize us even further?

What forces have created a demoralized, passive, dis-couraged U.S. population?

Can anything be done to turn this around?

Can people become so broken that truths of how they are being screwed do not "set them free" but instead further demoralize them?
