China blasts US 'debt addiction' and calls for new global stable reserve currency
"International supervision over the issue of US dollars should be introduced and a new, stable and secured global reserve currency may also be an
option to avert a catastrophe caused by any single country," Xinhua said.
LOL LOL LOL! The New World Order is not much of a conspiracy now is it?
Brace yourselves people - the next few months may well be the last time we will ever see the system we grew up in, as a new one takes its

s & f for you
Something about making one's bed and sleeping in it springs to mind, with the flavor of guilt for even thinking it...
I truly feel bad for the average 'Joe' who had no say (voting isn't compulsory in your country is it?), this is going to be a bad time for you.
It's already becoming a bad time for us too.
It disturbs me that one of the things they'd cut is welfare
Also for your information:
US census states:
There are 38 million black people
11.4 million of them are on welfare, or 30%.
(11.4 million / 38 million = .3 or 30%)
There are 229 million white people,
11.6 million of them are on welfare, or 5%.
(11.6 / 229 = .05 or 5%)
"In the United States and Canada, welfare has a special meaning in politics, referring to financial aid for the poor. In Europe, it is defined as a
universal service, available to rich and poor alike, thus guaranteeing a minimal level of well-being and social support for all citizens without the
stigma of charity."
"Minimal level of well-being", being the operative words.
(just for your information my husband works full time AND we get assistance ($240 ish/week), he's on $75k/year, 4 kids)
We have the same or similar in Australia (as Europe) because people should come first.
The countries people should come first.
YOU should come first!
What you get when you take away assistance form the 'bottom rung', or 'poor' as the the article eludes to, is desperation, or a slow death and decline
into the end....then desperation.
Can I make a suggestion? you're thinking about black/versus white 'thing' aren't you? Wait for it.
How simple has it been for 'them' , (and me, just for making-a-point-prospective)(and I have no idea who 'they' are....you do but) to make you blame
the wrong persons so far?
No wait! You'll be all up in arms about China next, and HOW DARE THEY?! WE will stand tall as American people and....yada yada yada.
It's a business transaction!! Your government made the decision for you, now you owe.
Bed, sleeping thing....remember?
The desperate peoples will start, the rest who aren't so bad off will rebel against those you owe.
Where do you stand?
That's the next step.
Tell me what you will do (if you are on welfare, or not) and you can not feed your kids?
Your elderly mum/dad?
Your best friend?
Who are YOU responsible for??
Will YOU leave them on the side of the road while YOU head to safety and possibly food?
As has been happening in Africa, people walking, (or trying to) away from just a drought (will search for link even as you get angry at me for posting
this.....be patient! and if I don't, tough! This an opinion forum)
OR would you do what it takes to feed them no matter what? Think about it...
If you have only yourself to worry about, then, well done for making no friends or family in life that you love, lucky you. :/
I think?!?! (I'm half and half on that, by the way, the way things are going)
I am not a fear mongerer! But I have seen time and time again how people will brush off what is happening and quietly keep on, keeping on.
I'm related to people like that!
How silly is that?!?! Let be realistic for just a fly's sh!t.
Mean while.... I am noticing my own local shops, IGA and Woolworths aren't as stocked as usual either....hmm this usually only happens in 'wet season'
when the roads are cut, sorry I mean, our major highways...?!?!
Get cranky all you like, while there's food on the shelves you'll be skeptical to the point of rudeness, but then when they'r empty....?....
My kids come first always....you take that how you want...
Stop being so complaisant! It's disturbing and stupid, don't blame any one but yourself, is what ONE of my female personalities wants to say to you
The polite me wants to console you hug you and feed you, while making soft cooing noises....
Look! If you can find your way here I will welcome you....if you can't, make your family time a happy one...
Cheers to you and yours and good luck x
