After you read this you decide if we're in the midst of a major depression or not.
Also let me apologize for the length of these, it is just that everything I put in these posts is vital to know. You sure do not hear any of this on the lamestream media. Believe it or not, I usually trim these AD's down.
This morning I went off briefly on the failing global Ponzi scheme that will bring down the global financial system. This was posted to Zero hedge this afternoon, Guest Post: A Very Subtle Form Of Theft | ZeroHedge
"Governments around the world are in similar situations right now with their own public sector Ponzi schemes. Faced with failed auctions, declining demand, and rising yields, politicians are having to resort to desperate measures.
Like any good scam artist, they’re appealing to the masses first; all over Europe, governments are sponsoring new marketing campaigns suggesting that it’s people’s patriotic duty to buy government debt.
In Spain, they’re actually issuing instruments called ‘Bonos Patrioticos,’ or ‘patriotic bonds’. Ad campaigns say that the bonds are “good for you, good for the future.”"
It gets worse, you should read it. Earlier I discussed the coming confiscation of our 401k, IRA and pension system. Remember when it happens it will be "good for the country". Now, if Obummer is still president, this will be guaranteed. If Newt gets the nod, guaranteed. If Ron Paul, it will never happen.
If you don't think the Fed is bleeding you and your grandchildren (born or not) dry, watch this. Remember there is only one candidate that wants to end the Fed (systematically of course), Ron Paul.
Governments out of control? Come on Shanky, get real. OK, hows this for real, the first of the two large events this afternoon was Eurozone To Avoid Any Popular Vote In Treaty Change | ZeroHedge. What's happening is the banks are in control and run the fascist governments these days. You see, we no longer have any control over spending of our own tax dollars (future or present - what's left of them). " The Telegraph's Bruno Waterfield reports, "EU to avoid any votes - parliamentary or popular on treaty change - via obscure Lisbon Treaty 'passerelle' clause, Art. 126 (14) via protocol 12. "This decision does not require ratification at national level. This procedure could therefore lead to rapid and significant changes,""
Well, the EU has its back against the wall. After missing the OCTOBER 23rd deadline to "resolve" their problems, we're now winding down to the latest (and probably not last) 12/09 deadline. We all know they do not have an answer (outside of massive printing that would simply devastate currencies everywhere and only make the end game far worse) or they would have "solved" the problem by now.
So this afternoon the rumor mill was cranked up again. ""In other words, Europe has now given up on nuances and has resorted to nuclear rumormongering: it is commingling all failed funds, adding the IMF, and promises to add Marsian capital as soon as said capital is discovered. That the EFSF was unable to raise €3 billion (and only did so with underwriters retaining half of the issued bonds) on its way to €1 trillion (let alone €2) remains irrelevant."
