Default What does 2012 have in store for us?

  • A 90% drop in the stock market . . .
  • 50% unemployment . . .
  • 100% ANNUAL inflation . . .

Many say this can't and won't happen here.
The leading economist, say that is exactly where we are headed.


Are you the carefree "wing it" type, or are you the one that has a list for everything and always prepared for the worst?

get your head out of the democrat vs. republican game.

republicans arnt going to save you. things arnt going to be any better with a republican president.

everything was decided years ago.

what we have to do now is understand our fate and accept it.

2012 will be the "interesting times" in the curse, "May you live in interesting times."

My gut tells me we are on the precipice of big events that will affect everyone, maybe even the entire world. There is too much unrest, too much division, too much chaos, too much polarization for something NOT to happen. Fer shur, no matter what it is, it will affect us economically.

we live in a historic time where we are seeing the downfall of the US as a superpower and losing international influence and don't really show a stable govronment when both side can't just suck it up and do a deal I mean it shows the tea party would rather default cause the worst economic crash in modren history then get a deal done.

Exactly, I love how repubs think that if you get a republican president everything will be all wine and roses.

A new President who comprehends the correlation between tax hikes and tax revenue, and who won't get us swindled big time as it relates to the national defense as Obama did against Putin, and who also realizes that pushing for high-speed rail is just plain stupid.

A 40-minute plane ride from LA to San Francisco vs. a three-plus hour long plane ride between those two cities is a total mismatch to everybody except for the Obaminable One.

We know for sure, unemployment is fixing to accelerate.

The Stock market that has been propped up with QE-1&2 is about to correct itself.
Which brings us to the QE and inflation.

I have the feeling we are going to have to hit bottom before things get better.

Thats ok, my job is some what secure, salary, not so much. As a slum lord in Michigan told me, "My tenants won't pay their rent, won't buy food, won't pay the electric bill, but they always pay their phone bills"
