Open Weekend Post 01/07-08/12

You know what to do, share the love and the knowledge. Remember this is the year of involvement on STB. Everyone needs to talk up the challenges we are facing as a nation and a planet and get the word out to as many as possible.

This weekend I will focus on a man who's opinions I have come to trust and value greatly. Read about Dr. Paul Craig Roberts (PCR) here. His experience and resume are very impressive, "President Reagan appointed Dr. Roberts Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and he was confirmed in office by the U.S. Senate. From 1975 to 1978, Dr. Roberts served on the congressional staff"

Dr. Roberts has a wonderful post I would like all of you to read. The Dismal Economic Outlook For The New Year - Do you like the title? LOL, what else would I deliver, right? No, I am not sick, just a realist.

In the post PCR addresses the year to come and why we are facing this destruction. "As the US government is controlled by financial and armaments interests and not by the people, the government responded to the financial crisis by shoveling more debt and more hardships on the American people in order that financial interests did not have to pay for their own mistakes and crimes. Instead of blaming the responsible parties, “our” government handed the bill to the American people."

He discusses, "In other words, in ten years the US economy was decimated by jobs offshoring for the sole purpose of higher rewards to capital in the form of multi-million dollar executive bonuses and large shareholder capital gains. A few hedge fund executives were paid a billion dollars in annual renumeration and a couple of dozen of them were paid $500 million in annual compensation. What sense does that make? Huge fortunes paid for one year’s work, not in productive activity but in destroying the financial system and the value of pensions that tens of millions of Americans had worked their lives to achieve."

He concludes, "There is no safety in a police state and a debauched currency. The comfortable world that Americans have known is falling apart at the seams." I could not agree more. Thank you Dr. Roberts.

This is the best (calmest and most reputable backer of reality) read I have seen yet. Please take a look. Below is part of his interview on Alex Jones Thursday.
