"If North Korea has that weapon, they should use it against the US.
The rest of the world would be better off."

=============================

Couldn't agree more. The U.S is being overtaken by dangerous lunatics. We actually live in a Nation where someone like Michelle Bachman is considered a major party front runner because she didn't drool during the debate.

America can NEVER repay its debts. The entitlement programs are going bankrupt. And inflation / hyperinflation will erode what’s left of the Dollar’s value.

There’s a lot of important news right now that is just not being reported. People need to know so that they can take action. It’s going to get worse and many people will not survive the upcoming crisis.

What entitlement? You can thank Wall Street and deregulation for the mess we're in right now. And as for debts?
We may not be able to cancel them, but we can, however reverse the trend. Taxing the s*** out of the uber-wealthy, as was done up until the end of the '50s would be a good start, as well as pulling out of both of our wars; the illegal one{Iraq}, and the botched one{Afghanistan}.

You are responsible for yourself.
If people are too dumb to inform themselves and don't take precautions, it's their own fault.


Aw gee, how swell.......hope you end up being one of the first to go under if things ever go Mad Max.

There is another serious crisis looming that is getting zero discussion in the media these days- a food shortage. 2 million acres burned this year in Texas, much of it was farmland. The dollar losses totaled over 20 million. The recent Mississippi levee breach flooded 130,000 acres of Missouri farmland. Japan lost a lot of farmland in the tsunami, and now they're dealing with irradiated milk and produce that people are afraid to eat and other countries are refusing to import. The floods in Australia earlier this year caused 990 million US dollars in agricultural losses. The current flooding in China has resulted in a loss of 20% of their vegetable output so far with even more flooding in their near term forecast. Food prices worldwide are climbing at an alarming rate, yet the above info is rarely reported on and in fact the blurb on China is something I read today near the end of an article about the flooding, it wasn't about the food issue at all. This all adds up to what could be a frightening food shortage. The impact of this on a world already struggling with huge economic woes could be catastrophic. I'm mystified as to how this has escaped media attention, I don't know if they're clueless about it or if they're afraid of widespread panic if they report on it.

Wow. that crack terrifies me because i live in Michigan. I saw it on the local news and it doesan't sound good at all. What the hell is happening to this planet? in my opinion God needs to step in soon.

All the loss of farmland use this past year, it's so scary. I am in the process of starting indoor hydroponic gardening. I wish I could've done it sooner, but finances would not allow it.

Some things that i think we as a community need to do:

We need to spread the news instead of keeping it to ourselves, use your facebook and twitter accounts for this matter. Do not be ashamed of not being a sheeple. WE NEED TO AWAKE PEOPLE!!.

Second, bring information to the topic being discussed, not fighting or arguing behind a computer screen. cut the BS.

Third.. up to you!

Peace

Fifty-two temporary US no fly zones declared by the FAA this month. Over the last 3 years, 78% of those were declared this month alone. See: tfr.faa.gov

Is that complete nuts or what?

Funny how much of the material not being reported could be potentially harmful to the "shadow" government's big agenda. If they revealed the Fort Calhoun incident to the general public, that will scare them into potentially cutting american dependence on nuclear power.

The U.S. government does not want that to occur. Thus, this explains the media blackout on not just this subject, but our covert wars in the Middle East (Pakistan; Yemen) and not to mention the horrific Fukishima which, out of all of these events, really deserves more of the public's attention.


But No, the media is being manipulated by our world's leaders and instead is throwing complete crap out at their ignorant viewers, blindly accepted as being truth.


I've seen these tactics being used before. Seriously, I know when there's more to something than meets the eye.


It's a shame: While others still think otherwise ... I think not.

I agree with pulling out of the wars but if your solution is just to tax the crap out of the rich, it will never work. If you tax the rich they are just going to leave the country and take all of their capital with them. This would devastate the country.

No more gold and silver trading? I guess the Illuminati are tying up loose ends. They own all the gold anyways, what's the point?

Yes, we need the rich to trickle on us.

Funny rising food prices are mention quite often in the UK in newspapers and tv.

thanks for the heads-up OP

one has to wonder, if you connect the dots, those with the agenda are carrying out their plans very rapidly

MSM has dumbed everyone down to the point where the almost daily 'natural disaster' is given a 30 second spot and then archived and forgotten

its like slow cooking the frog, and on that day the TV watching couch potatoes will be swept away

but here's the big / hard question - if what we are seeing these days is, in essence, the manifestation or effect of the agenda, what more has been pre-planned for execution?, and how can we the people not simply evade the bullets in order to maintain our survival,but somehow take the gun out of the enemy's hand?

whilst the net and this site are great mediums for communicating and sharing ideas, in essence we have been conditioned to be lonely, self centred individuals, and we have lost most of our community and concern, along with the determination to fight for what is right, held in a state of being the helpless audience to the events being played out before us, and in bondage to the system that provides us fiat currency in exchange for our labour, which we must then use to purchase the rapidly dwindling supply of non toxic food

"a loaf of bread for a denarius (a days wage)" - Revelation

be strong of of good courage

One thing this country badly needs is to bring back manufacturing and industrial sectors. We have so many people out of work who want to work. Couldn't there be ways to stimulate and promote manufacturing so that we export more goods and make more for our own consumption?

Another thing I wish Congress would do is abolish the self-employment tax so that more people could be freelancers or sole proprietors. In a "jobless recovery," an unemployed person would have a better chance if he or she could start a micro-business with a low interest micro-loan from a government stimulus program. Stimulating the rich banks hasn't really helped the average person, but helping a person start a very small business would be a positive thing for the overall economy. Sure, many of those little businesses would fail, but a lot of them would probably take off and become larger, successful businesses. As it is now, the overbearing self-employment tax crushes the little guy who wants to start a one to five person sized business. Banks won't loan money these days, so government micro-loans would fill the void. Tax the rich to pay for the micro-loans, is what I say. I'm tired of people so eager to protect the wealth of multimillionaires.

In any case, we must begin to, as a nation in the world, sell more to other countries than we buy from them. So we have to be much more productive and use American ingenuity to design products that people around the world will want to buy.

Maybe that is a good idea in a tiny socialist leaning nation. but we have to help each other it's how we are wired, conditioned aristocracy and arrogance are alien to us,we are all individuals not an ant colony. Only big money elitists have an attitude like that and worse for you and me if they get their way.
Should we have let Russians in? You sure as hell couldn't stop them we had to finish rebuilding Europe,who by the way didn't pay us back..........So any debts SHOULD be forgiven in reimbursement of our services rendered or that's probably what the IMF will eventually get,one big bill,
I will never say we are angels but that's what you get when you don't have a world class fighting force,our decisions.
There are thousands in this country who want isolation,pull back all military forces to our own lands and YOU take over.
WWIII in a year.

Today CNN spent a good amount of time talking about the Obama impersonator's speech at the Republican convention. Talk about a complete waste of time. What was scary is how they were legitimately acting like it was a legitimate news story.

Non-news is officially news now on most mainstream outlets. It's just getting worse.

When was the last time anyone heard about the situation in Japan on the news? It's been months for me.

And the only place I've heard about the situation in Nebraska is on here, where someone has posted a link to an alternative news source.

Out of that list, the British MSM has reported on:

* Fort Calhoun nuclear facility in Nebraska

* Fukushima

* China flooding

* Arizona wild fires

Maybe it's just an American-centric thing where you see something not being reported on in the US and think that no one in the world knows other than those on alternative media outlets? Wouldn't surprise me, much as I love the US and its people, the ego in thinking the universe revolves around them is amazing and ridiculous all at once.
