Here is my history of bad feelings/paranoia/premonitions.
I thought Y2K was a joke and I gave it no thought.
When Obama got elected I rushed out and bought guns and ammo because I thought he'd outlaw them right off the bat and then bring down the SS troops on
us (I still think that). When the bird flu hit I had a bit of anxiety.
Then I had my awakening when the market crashed in '08. I started really paying attention. It freaked me out so bad that I rushed out and bought
months worth of food, stacks of ammo, medical supplies, etc. After a while I lightened up and stopped worrying so much, but that same sense of
foreboding has stayed with me ever since.
Everybody figures themselves to be smart even if they aren't. I am an intelligent person. IQ and college admittance tests put me inside the top 10%
any way you cut it. I'm not a genius, but not much gets past me for very long. I'm not saying that to brag, but rather to attempt to establish that
I'm not some slobbering bumpkin all wired up over crazy conspiracy theories. I'm well educated, aware, and in tune (as many ATSers are, this site
seems to attract such people...and some other people as well).
I have never been more frightened than I am now. I suddenly don't feel safe in bed at night. A week ago I woke up, got dressed, and spent $300 on
canned food out of the blue and bought a new 1911. I have not stockpiled food since 2009. I have no idea the extent of what is coming, but economic
doom is mathematically certain. It may be this Winter and it might be several years away. People pretend to know, but without the certainty of all the
potential input variables nobody can know. It absolutely can happen tomorrow given the right inputs, or it can drag out years. It may be sudden or a
pitifully slow process. It may be prophesy or just another noteworthy moment on a historical timeline. There may be unlucky cataclysms to boot, or
I have no doubt that the world will soon change radically, and not for the better....atleast not initially. That is all I'll venture to say because
beyond that I am just not certain. I can't say if the OP is just being paranoid, or if I am. I put my money (literally) on being correct that
something bad is coming.
