Open Weekend Post 12/17-18/11

You know the drill, share the love and the knowledge.

MTV Martial Law Commercial - National Defense Authorization Act (S. 1867) - YouTube

"Viewers would be surprised to see MTV’s recent anti-Martial Law advert that ran this week. It’s part of of MTV’s ‘Think’ ad campaign, and is a clear break from the usual innocuous political content that we are normally used to seeing on a pop music network. The appearance of such a timely message here is somewhat surprising from the network whose unquestioning loyalty helped catapult Barack Obama into office in 2008, and may be called upon again to do the same in 2012…" MTV runs advert opposing Obama’s NDAA bill Alex Jones' Infowars

Sorry for beating the NDAA, corruption and the impending financial collapse so hard this season, but I can't let up. It is far too important and can not be understated.

As for the markets, pretty simple, crash to 1040, they get one last massive saving stimulus and then it all turns to dust.

"The managing director of the International Monetary Fund has warned that the global economy faces the prospect of “economic retraction, rising protectionism, isolation and . . . what happened in the 30s [Depression]”, as European tensions again flared over suggestions in Paris that the UK’s credit rating should be downgraded before France’s." IMF chief warns over 1930s-style threats - I'm thinking more along the lines of gold confiscation. They always fail to mention the good stuff.

Right now it looks like the blue scenario is playing out. My time frame is not perfect, but the moves are right where they were anticipated for that scenario.

Remember the Reason for the season!

GL and GB.

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for...another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
