Apropos of media silence (I call it a form of lying to the public), I think our media has mislead the public for more than 20 years about the state of
the US economy.
I think our economy started to really go downhill after the stock market crash of 1987.
I'm old enough to remember the "Nasty Nineties" -- the Clinton Years were nowhere as good as reported.
The real beginning of the end was Sept 11, 2001. Of course, it hurt the economy.
The Iraq War that started on March 20, 2003 (I was sick to my stomach when that was announced because I knew it would be a disaster for the US) -- I
knew in my gut one of the reasons that war was started was to DISTRACT the public from a failing economy. Later it would become clear that not only
was it a distraction, but a resource war.
I saw so many businesses around me fail since 9/11.
Do you know that TRILLIONS of Dollars have vanished from the US Treasury?
The economy was already bad BEFORE the crash of 2008.
I don't think TPTB have any real intention of reviving the US economy.
They have there own reasons for collapsing currencies & economies, and none of those reasons are good for the common man/woman.
