This is a great video. Compares what's happening in the U.S. with what happened in Germany and Argentina.

Enjoy:

I disagree with your statement about Americans questioning everything.
They have been doing just the opposite.
There is no accountability..bailouts galore, Congressional hearings but no one is held accountable, no laws have changed.

IMO most people grumble and whine but don't act.

Look at how many Congressmen and Senators got re-elected that voted FOR the bailout package when an overwhelming number of Americans said NO.

I don't think you watched the video.

Why do people comment on a thread about a video when they don't bother to watch the video?

Well, then why bother posting on this thread?

I think it's a sort of mental flatulence that makes people respond to threads even though they have nothing to add.

I think of it as passing gas.

Thanks for posting, I'm glad word is getting out. Lots of people have no idea what's going on. Most are just happy gasoline prices are down.

You make a reference to a youtube post, with SCI FI edits and multiply other edits in the Glen Beck interview. Please post facts so you don't lose credibility.

That was one of the most poorly produced videos I have ever seen ... and all the "information" on it stemmed from a cable "news" episode of Glen Beck lol.

Obviously we are in tough economic times, but that video proved or "showed" absolutely nothing .

especially those of us who can't watch linked videos...getting by with very SLOW, 'Pay-by-the-byte' dial-up (I live in nationally protected scenic area, no cable, no cell towers, no satellite dishes allowed, no broadband signal...)

We have to rely on an abridged version of guessing on the content, this could be troublesome in the new communication age, but...we might miss the coming collapse
