I was digging through some DVDs last night and found "Deep Impact" tucked away. You know, the one about the massive asteroid and such like ? Came
out about the same time as Armageddon.
Anyway, thought I'd give it a spin because I really love Morgan Freeman.
There's a scene near the beginning, in the vaults under some government building. The reporter gets hustled in with a secret service escort, she
knows too much (she actually doesn't know anything but I won't spoil it too much). Around her lie pallets upon pallets of emergency rations. And in
a neat little twist, in walks Mr Freeman in his capacity as Leader of the Free World. He proceeds to tell our startled reporter that they didn't
think they could keep the news (about the asteroid) secret because they'd spent so much money it was going to have to be published in the Budget.
And that got me thinking. So I visited the US Debt Clock. They're reporting the US National Debt as approx $55.3 trillion. I assume that's
government, company & personal debt all rolled up into one but it's a fair guess that government debt takes up a mighty chunk of that.
Of course, it's not just the USA which is up to it's eyeballs in debt. Governments all around the world are in a similar position. We're even
bailing out other impoverished countries even though we can barely service our own debts. These bailouts are carefully coordinated too, nothing's
accidental about it, it's all coordinated through the World Bank, the IMF, European Union etc etc. And all this has come about since, when, 2007/8
MSM continually tell us about painful cuts, Congress and Parliaments all over have been debating such things for months. And we can see the cuts all
around. They're targeted at those programs which cause least public resistance. Yet far from "reducing the deficit", government expenditure is
still rampaging ahead, they're borrowing/printing more money than ever before, with no thought to the consequences whatever.
Now I'm looking out of the window here. I can't see my town's share of these trillions they've been borrowing. The roads are falling to bits. The
paint's flaking off the local council offices. Our hospital's had several wards closed. The RAF base up the road is now closed in all but name (no
aircraft ... they've been scrapped).
And I come to ATS and read about Elenin/Niburu and 2012. The sane, sensible,middle-aged & quietly conservative person I am normally regards such
things as utter nonsense. But even I'm now wondering if there couldn't there be some truth in the little scene from that movie I watched last night
That they're bankrupting our countries because there's "something out there" which needs trillions and trillions of dollars, pounds & euros spent
on ? And that governments all around the world are spending such sums willingly, even in the full knowledge & expectation that it spells their own
electoral suicide ?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
