This is pretty interesting ... and is a crazy cover ... foreshadowing of what's to come to the U.S.?

I looked at the front page of the paper this morning and wondered for a moment if I was looking at one of those historical documents about which scholars would wonder if those who read it in real time had a clue about the scale of what was happening:

There's a run on the banks in Ukraine, the world's biggest insurer suffered the highest quarterly losses in corporate history, Europe is starting to come apart --- with Germany being the lead player. Major change seems to be rumbling in a bunch of different ways right now --- with echoes of the past overlaid with things we've never seen before. Maybe it's just a blip. But maybe not.

thoughts about the picture? pretty crazy imo

I'm not sure why, but this reminded me of a website somebody started.

My colleges and I noticed that the mainstream news seemed to have something for frustrated looking traders. Every day it seemed like they were putting a picture of someone up with their face in their hands and a headline like "DOW Drops 200 Points".

I was pleased to see others also noticed this.

That is crazy.

I was watching Beck today and he had this guy on that wrote a book, anyway the guy was saying how globalization is falling apart.

Which is a good thing in the fact that the NWO is taking major hits right now, it is a bad thing because like the excerpt of the article said, it is the past overlaid with things that we haven't ever seen before.

All I know is that we indeed live in interesting times. I don't think there is anybody on earth that can tell you what is going to happen.
