THE PREDICTIONS - WHAT CAME TRUE AND WHAT DID NOT
Just six months ago, the "officials" and mainstream media finance gurus were not only calling a bottom, but insisted that we weren't even in a recession! They insisted that, "the fundamentals of our economy are solid." Now they claim that "no one saw this coming". Really?!?!?! There were DOZENS of economists, journalists, authors, historians, trend researchers and finance buffs who called this whole scenario years ago. When any of their predictions were presented to mainstream media finance "experts", government officials or banking establishments, the warnings were immediately dismissed or even ridiculed. We were told not to listen to "doomsayers". We were told they were crazy, on "the fringe", scaremongers. A little over a year ago, I stumbled upon the rantings of some of these whack-o, apocalypse fruit loops theories and predictions. I though it was outrageous, I really didn't believe it - but kept observing events and monitoring what these guys were saying just out of curiosity. To my horror and amazement, every single thing they said would happen came true!
--- But you don't have to believe me, I'm just a bubble-headed blond rockerchic. No, you can see for yourself by googling these people and referring to their published, audio and video testimonials from a year to many years ago: Peter Schiff, David Walker, Gerald Celente, George Ure, Max Keiser, Bob Chapman, James Kunstler, Kevin Denninger, "manoftruth" and "myspacesecrets" (YouTube channels), Eric Cedarstrom and Joe Jacquint (Patriot Radio News at allamericangold.com), and Dr. Lee Warren. These are just a few - there are many others you will find as you start looking.
THE BEST PREDICTOR OF FUTURE EVENTS IS RECENT PAST EVENTS
We were told that the situation was going to be "contained." Then we were told it was going to be contained with emergency loans from the Federal Reserve Bank. That didn't work, so then we were told it would be fixed at a price (the first bailout, 700 billion). That didn't work either. Now they are telling us that the economy will be fixed, for real, honestly, really this time... but at a much higher price (again, with your money). Do you really think that because there's a different president in office that this time, this Trillion, is really going to work? If you do, I seriously suggest you stop by my place of employment - the county mental health department - and be evaluated for a specific type of delusional disorder I like to call "The Charlie-Brown and Lucy Syndrome". That's where Lucy holds the football, and promises not to pull it away as Charlie kicks it with all his might. Of course, every time she does pull the football away and Charlie quickly finds the ground plastered to his aching rear-end. Charlie Brown continues to fall for Lucy's promise that this time, it will be different.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN NOW?
The tin-foil hat brigade now says that what we have to look forward to for the rest of '09 and several years out is not pretty. In fact, it's downright frightening. Here's just a brief rundown of what's most likely will occur - some of which is certain to occur - but in which order depends on many variables. So here goes:
- 15 to 20 percent unemployment
- Banking holiday (where the banks shut down temporarily, without notice, to keep the currency from collapsing)
- Currency collapse, if above does not work (google Iceland collapse for a little taste of that)
- Food shortages
- Riots, civil unrest (already happening in Western Europe and Iceland)
- Martial law (in response to above)
- Tax revolts
- Mass homelessness
- Middle class wiped out, all are thrown into severe poverty
- Rampant hyperinflation (google Weimar Republic or Zimbabwe inflation)
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I'M LISTENING TO THE WHACK-Os. THEY'RE THE ONLY ONES SO FAR THAT CALLED IT RIGHT AND HAVEN'T LIED TO US OR STOLEN FROM US AND OUR DESCENDANTS!!!
If the majority of the American public were smarter than a rockerchic, we would all be marching on Washington with torches and pitchforks this very moment!
STAY TUNED FOR NEXT WEEK'S POST ON WHAT YOU CAN DO TO SAVE YOURSELF, BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT WON'T!
A ROCK LEGEND HAS DEPARTED FROM US
Billy Powell, keyboardist for the legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, passed away last week of a heart attack. Lynyrd Skynyrd were the pioneers of "Southern Rock" with mega-hits such as "Sweet Home Alabama", "Freebird" and "That Smell". Billy was one of the last surviving members of the original band lineup, and was predeceased by Ronnie Van Zant (lead singer), Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines who were killed in a plane crash in 1977 shortly after the release of the "Street Survivors" album. That was my freshman year in high school, and that album was hugely popular - every kid I knew ran out and bought that album, which remains one of my favorites to this day. Thank the Good Lord for remastering audio technology, which will allow Billy and the band's legacy of great music to be shared with future generations.
I believe that God puts every single person on the earth for a reason. Whether we live up to God's plan for us is a choice. I believe Billy was put here to make great music for everyone to enjoy. God bless him for living up to that mission in his life.
Until next time, Rock on!
