Sigh, I seriously, now expect it to get "so bad" that religion is going to make a comeback.

so that they can force the world currency that granny's bible talked of.
Yeah, a checkless, cashless society, and bingo, we have the internet that could contain ALL financial transactions with a number for everyone, unlike would've been possible in previous generations.

The times, they are a'changin and getting nutty as hell.
I hate it when tinfoil hat stuff turns out to be true...

When the collapse happens, and you're eating cat food for dinner, who will you blame? Obama? The Tea Party? Bush? (I will blame Bush because I blame him for everything... I say... Bush damn it, when I stub my toe.) Someone else? Do tell... everyone has to have a scapegoat in these trying times.

I blame Woodrow Wilson.

Things don't happen over night.
The federal reserve and the US treasury.
Who declare a piece of paper with writing on it was worth something.

It works if this were an isolationist society, but go global and other nations figure out quickly the US is ripping them off by counterfeiting. The light goes off and they realize they don't have the worth they thought they did.

No other nation has the ability to print to pay debts.... CRASH!!!


People in other nations wake up quick, when the US dollar only has .04 worth of buying power.
