The Titanic is blessed and we are on it. Cheers and well wishers on the shores, off we sail.
The music is fabulous, the people of all economic backgrounds are reveling and an iceburg is struck.

"Lower the lifeboats"!!!!!! calls the captain; The elite is loaded onto the boats, ahhh, they are safe minus their valuables, but they have their lives.

Another boat and another boat is loaded and more elites and more and more are placed in the boats. An exception is made for women with children. They try to get away from what is an inevitable horrific sinking and the farther they are, the more they stand to be safe while the ship sinks.

On the ship, are crew members, poor people way on the lower bowels of the ship, all the staff who made it possible for the priviledged to have a luxurious trip catering to their every whim. Oh no! As the band (may i say the most dedicated group i ever did hear of) played on, the ship is tipping, oh no!!!! Its tipping and they are all going to die!!!!!

The lights go off...the majestic ship sinks in a matter of minutes...the screams could be heard from far away and a very rich lady thru the screams was complaining because the lifeboat was "uncomfortable"

This is just a very brief account and some scenarios have been slightly changed, just for the sake of proving a point.

This is the best analogy i can think of what is happening to this country right now.

NOTE: Just read it as an analogy and dont debate whether so and so got on the boat. Lets just apply it to what is happening now.

An apt analogy you've outlined.

Perhaps the Lusitania applies as well. Despite forewarnings, this ship was sunk, leading the World into its first War.

Now, we're watching and experiencing a "Global Meltdown," as it were. Don't be shocked when WWIII jumps off, catalyzing and *cough* "stabilizing" the world's wallet.
