Huge Disaster Waiting To Happen

Postby SmithSmith » Sat Aug 08, 2015 4:10 am

Is America headed for an economic collapse?

If so, presidential candidates are remaining eerily quiet about what’s being described as “a huge disaster waiting to happen.”

Don't blame it all on Obama.
While his is a tremendous share of pending collapse, none of it would have been ever possible if not for "illuminated" Bushes, Chaneys, Rumsfields etc.
DFL is by now 100% anti-American, but GOP is not far behind with what looks like 95-97% "Judas syndrome" among "pseudo-conservative idiots".

We live in a finite world. NAFTA just sped up the end times. Most of the world, including parts of here could be a mad max ghetto. There will be islands of the civil that will be off limits to the common peasant.

If the stock market crashes you know what I will do? Buy stock. The economy is an ongoing cycle: up, down, up, down.

Maybe so, but I'm guessing many people don't have money they can afford to lose. So riding out those waves is difficult.

A key date will be 20 OCT 2015.
To err is human. To forgive divine. Neither of which is Marine Corps policy.

The disaster waiting to happen is our TBTF banks, which are even BIGGER than they were in 2008 if you can believe that. Our unregulated TBTF banks, who have made sure that no meaningful regulations have passed that would seriously impede their wild gambling sprees and fraud, like the ones that killed us in 2008.

So guess what that means?

We as a nation have gone beyond the idea of "Normalcy Bias," which means refusing to address or plan for something because we don't believe it will happen (prime example: climate change)--in this instance it DID happen in 2008 but the American public just sits there, like sheep waiting to be slaughtered. Again.

Climate change is just a different angle to tax the clueless.

Breaking up the TBTF banks means you hate capitalism.

Nobody could have envisioned planes as missiles.

Let's keep pushing towards the Intelligence Explosion and assume that the super intelligence will be "friendly" to us...

Etc. etc....

Let's keep finding excuses to do nothing and ensure our own demise...
