If the youth have their way, and secularize the region .. coupled with the power of oil money, they could infuse the capital needed into their economies to really build a future for themselves. The Middle East used to be the cross roads of the World, and had some of the largest economies, largest empires, and longest histories.. and that was before oil.

That's precisely the road we are going down. More precisely, the end to the illusion of wealth through material things, and into the real wealth of loving each other.

Sheesh, didn't anyone get my Final Warning last year? I said all of this was coming to pass.

So few listen, so few hear.

America will have the hardest time because they are so wrapped up in their material possessions and illusions of wealth. They have raped and pillaged the world to sustain themselves in ivory towers over the rest of the family of Man.

The camel may not like it, but he will get yanked through that needle before it is all said and done!

For those who missed it:

Final Warning

Judge not, Love all, be at peace

With Love,

Your Brother

The real problem continues to be, extremely inequitable distribution of wealth.
That observation is just an illusion.

You need to look past your emotions and look at things in an objective manner. If you force a totally equal distribution of wealth, what do you have? China. No one wants to go down that road.

So whom do you begrudge for their wealth? Is it Bill Gates? Or Warren Buffett? Both of these made their billions the hard way. I have no issue with people like this, even when they decide to live a lavish lifestyle. They earned it, they deserve to spend it how they like.

Do you begrudge the bankers types? If so then vote with your shares of stock. One share, one vote.
Didn’t vote? Who’s fault is that? But you still collected the dividends, didn’t you?
Don’t own shares? Then you missed the gains went with it. Just sour grapes.

Below that is a hollow facade of wealth. Those who feel they deserve a bigger house or a better car. These are the people who don’t think about retirement or assume it will just work out. If the pay check stops for more than a couple of months they have to start selling things. These are the same people we hear about on tv. They whine and cry about their situation and claim it’s not their fault. But it is their own doings because they spent what they had.

It’s the people below that level where I do have sympathy for. They never made enough money to get themselves into trouble. They never bought the big house or the luxury cars.


For the most part we did it to ourselves.


You are over simplifying it. I don't begrudge anyone thier wealth if they earned it. I am not for forced redistribution of of wealth. The banks are running a scam. What I am for is a level playing filed and equal opportunity. We do not have that, the game is rigged through government regulation, and taxation schemes etc. in favor of the politically connected. In other words they don't have to play by the same rules as everyone else and the rules favor them and cut out the rest of us.

The entire monetary system is a huge casino and like all casinos the game is rigged so the house always wins. They give a few crumbs to the players so they keep coming back in the hopes of winning. It is the biggest ponzi scheme in the world designed to hoard all the wealth to the few and that is why less the 2% own 90% of all the wealth. So yes i begrudge the bankers and the politicians and all those who have stolen the wealth of this country using government force and deception. it is not a matter of just having some stock.

It is not a matter of just being mad at the rich like the neocons try and falsely characterize the debate. Lets get rid of government intervention and theft by taxation and see how the wealth gets distributed. I can think of 3 businesses I would start right now if government regulation and taxation was not sapping any benefit out of it making it untenable.
