These economic downturns are programed into the economy by big business and banks with the help of the US government.

Everyone of these economic downturns in the last 30 years has been caused by laws that have been changed by the government after big business and the banks have lobbied for the changes.

The housing bubble that caused the latest one what caused by the government making laws to ALLOW low income people to by homes they could not afford.

All these economic downturns help big business by allowing them to terminate employees that they would not be able to terminate otherwise.
The disabled, most disabled by on the job injuries or illness.
The high wage employees that have been working for the corporation for 20 to 30 years
People over 45 years old.
And others that big business has no lawful reason to terminate.

How many big corporations rehire all the employees they terminate during a economic downturn and how many just ignore there old employees and hire new younger and non disabled employees and start them a minimum wages for the job.

These economic downturns have happened like clockwork every 5 to 8 years for the last 50 years.
its because they are programed to happen by the TPTB.

That 27% is probably the top 27% of the country.

That just means there's a recession for 73% of us.

As for the whole "waking up" deal...let's get real for a second.

Generally speaking, most people over 45 or so have developed deep neural networks that run a certain way, they have certain belief structures, etc...Unless the individual is exceptional, he becomes pretty well solidified in his view of the world.

Some are being forced to wake up out of obvious necessity. Most would rather (and may get their wish!) die out than wisen up.

So the younger bunch has the potential to change things, but this is the way it's always been. It's part of the reason we have labels of generations, because the tides ebb and flow.

Basically, I don't think any more people are truly awake in 2011 than they were in 1991. Many people who thought they were awake have died out since then, and many still have been born and are now awake. I think it's about the same numbers.

Well boys and girls you better look around and get a good glimpse of the good times now because the bad times are coming and coming fast.
