Wha-hooooo! I can hear the champaign corks popping after the recent rally in the markets. Of course, this means it's all going to be OK.... We can believe our government saying that, "the fundamentals of our economic system are solid" and the mainstream media pundits telling us to "hold the line for the long haul - you're money is safe." .....NOT!!!
This summer rally will be short-lived, and was predicted months ago by one of my favorite sources of REAL business news, "Peoplenomics" economist George Ure. You can read his daily business report for free over at http://www.urbansurvival.com/ Paid subscribers to his service get additional insights for sound investment decisions. Even though redneck people like me aren't investors, Mr. Ure makes economic news interesting and fun. There are many other reliable sources who tell our current economic story completely different than what the masses are being fed on Bloomberg, CNBC, etc. The truth is, what we are actually heading for beginning this fall will make the great depression look like a block party. I know, you're thinking "what does this chic know?" and my sister thinks I have completely lost my mind. As I said in my last posting, I have been researching this for months. Anyone who knows me is assured I don't take on extreme views without ample and specific evidence. I've done my homework on this, and though a Rockerchic doesn't like being wrong, this is one matter I would love to be wrong about... but my gut tells me there's something very foreboding on the horizon.
There are some excellent videos on YouTube posted by experienced and knowledgeable stock traders and economists that explain the whole mess in a way even blonds can understand, and why it's much more serious than MSM is reporting. Just go to my YouTube page, "Rockerchic4God" where you can view a sampling of the best I've found. I especially recommend videos by "manoftruth", "myspacesecrets" and "visionvictory". These guys are the pros and experts of investing and economics - not those talking heads on the squawk box - they are nothing but paid pundits, whored by the media corporations that tell them to candy-coat the grim financial truth. Oh, and speaking of truth... check out Revelation 18, which discusses how the mammoth economic world power (that's U.S.) is going to completely implode in on itself.
IF ALL OF THIS APOCALYPSE STUFF IS CAUSING YOU TO HAVE A PANIC ATTACK, REPEAT AFTER ME:
"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen."
BANKS GETTING ROCKED TO THE CORE - AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY
The collapse of Indy Mac is purported to have been caused by panicky customers making a "run" on the bank. The truth is, this bank deserved to go down because of shady mortgage deals they offed to investors. Someone told the truth about it, and smart consumers decided to get their hard-earned money out of there. The FDIC "insurance" protection may mean that eventually, customers with $100,000 or less can get their money... HOWEVER, now other banks are refusing to accept the cashier's checks issued by Indy Mac's new "owner", the FDIC! While the mainstream news was reporting that "ATM's were working over the weekend - customers had access to cash", that was a blatant LIE. The truth was told by one of L.A.'s local newscasters because he himself had an account there, and said that he had tried to access his cash from the ATM that very weekend - but was denied! That illustrates what stinking, rotten liars corpgov is, and if you think your bank is safe, be warned that none of them are immune from insolvency. Best to have some cash reserves of your own, or buy some precious metals if you want to protect your money.
When you look at the world economic picture, the increased frequency and severity of natural disasters, geopolitics, the middle east on the verge of war, etc.
It is obvious to the Christian observer we are in the end-times, the great Tribulation. We are not long for this world, by some estimates it will all be over by 12/21/2012. I am trying to urge people to prepare, even if for anything else - even if things don't collapse completely, it's simply prudent for all to be prepared for plain-old natural disasters, anyway. One good website with lots of good preparation and survival info and resources is http://www.endtimesreport.com/.
THE TOP TEN REASONS THE END OF THE WORLD ROCKS!
1. Jesus is coming! Jesus is coming! That's more exciting than hearing the ice-cream truck on a hot summer day.
2. We don't have to worry about having enough money for retirement.
3. Won't have to get old, thereby saving Rockerchic thousands on plastic surgery.
4. We'll be reunited with loved ones who have passed before us.
5. Our health will be restored (no more pills or dumb doctors needed!)
6. No need to worry about that asteroid headed our way in 2029.
7. People who are suicidal won't have to do anything but wait. This will especially benefit those who are suicidal AND lazy.
8. We'll never be bombarded with tabloid reports about Suri Cruise, Shilo Pitt or any other dysfunctional celebrity offspring when they reach adulthood - because they won't!
9. Militant atheists will finally shut the f**k up!
10. With no one left to tempt or destroy, Satan will be very bored and lonely.
Just like guns, cars, the internet or any other thing, it's not the thing itself but the user of it that determines good or evil. Any art form is subject to the interpretation of the "beholder" if you will. The vast majority of heavy metal musicians have nothing to do with satanism or evil, in fact most of them are believers and many are even Christians. There is a small minority that are "out there", the fringe, claiming they are satanists or whatever, but most metalheads don't pay any attention to them. Trust me, I've been around many, many metal musicians. Just because the music may seem dark to some, doesn't mean it's evil. Wolfman movies are scary, but that doesn't mean that Lon Chaney, Jr. was actually advocating murder and mutilation. Did anyone ever accuse Bela Lugosi of actually being a vampire? Of course not. It was entertainment. Granted, some of today's new stuff is pretty angry - they are screaming off-key, and even I can't stand to listen to it. But if your heart is firmly planted in the Word and your are spiritually sound, things like lyrics take on a different meaning. For example, when I hear a metal love song, I can imagine it in a context of Christ's love for me rather than romantic love from a person. Combine this with the raw energy and powerful melody of metal and it's awesome!
(IT'S OK - GOD HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR, AS EVIDENCED BY MY VERY EXISTENCE)
HERE'S A FAQ - HOW CAN YOU BE A CHRISTIAN AND BE INTO HEAVY METAL?
Friar Cesare Bonizzi, a Catholic Capuchin monk in Milan. He's caught the heavy metal bug and is singing in his own heavy metal band! Another "Rocker for God", a man after my own heart! You Gotta see him in this video...
BTW... THIS WEEK'S HEAVY METAL SALUTE GOES TO:
TO WAR OR NOT TO WAR? IRAN IS THE QUESTION...
Here's my prediction for how this will probably go down: Knowing that the biggest turn-off of the Bush administration is the Iraq war, I don't think they would be stupid enough to jeopardize McCain's chance to win in the fall. If we attacked Iran before November, it would mean certain victory for Obama. So, I think that it will depend on who wins the general election. If McCain wins, we are going to war with Iran soon after and McCain will continue where G.W. left off. If Obama wins, no way will a democratic congress or war-weary American public stand for pounding Iran. So, Israel will "do the deed" if Obama wins, that way we'll be obligated to help our ally avoid getting "wiped off the map". We'll see how this plays out, but according to Scripture, there WILL be a WWIII, and soon.
Here in California, we continue to have a ridiculous number of wildfires burning. Our air has been super smokey for weeks now, seriously hampering my pool fun. The only tan I'm sporting now is fake-bake, and the sky has taken on a surreal Mars look to it. Our prayers go out to those who have more serious problems than sun-bathing though - they have lost their homes, or are in fear of it, and not to mention all the poor little animals who have no chance of survival in these fire storms. Many pets are also abandoned at shelters because their owners could not go to shelters, motels, apartments, etc. with them. Please send prayers this way for all the people and animals.
A BUMMER OF A SUMMER
SPECIAL REPORT: ROCKLAHOMA!
Guitarist Kevin "K.K." Edwards brings us a special report after performing with Shy Tiger at the 5-day, hair-metal blowout festival in Oaklahoma earlier this month. He plays for more bands than anyone can keep track of, but perhaps most notably axes for Izzy Ozborne: A Tribute To The Music of Ozzy. Izzy's bassist also happens to be my husband, Troy "Mr. Hammer-on" Minch, but I digress: KK reports, "It was crazy and hecka fun like going back to the 80's - they sold over 100,000 tickets..." There were literally dozens upon dozens of bands in the mega-lineup, and included some of the Rockerchic's faves like Queensryche, Dokken, L.A. Guns, Ratt, Cinderella, Kingdom Come, and the queen of all Rockerhics... Lita Ford! Plus, others too numerous to mention and may have me reaching for the sniffing salts to keep from fainting!
KK also got to jam with a number of notable musicians on various stages and in the stars' camps and said, "Steelheart was my favorite and have most bands on the list on video.This is my first Rocklahoma and can't wait for next year but just as good "Aug 29th - Sept 1st" is another one coming up on labor day weekend over 40 bands 4 days with camping called 'Rock the Bayou' in Houston Texas." This venue will also include an overwhelming super-band studded lineup including (but not limited to) Sammy Hagar, Alice Cooper, Slaughter, Firehouse, Yngwie Malmsteen, Twisted Sister and Y&T.
A special shout-out thank you to KK for bringing us this exclusive report. You can check out the Izzy Ozborne website at http://www.izzyoz.com/ and KK's MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/kkguitarmaster
