Like blind pigs led to slaughter, the entitlement generation in America is staring right down the double barrel of doom and gloom, watching other nations leap off the same cliff they are headed for, and still, they remain unable to connect the dots in order to save themselves.
The tangled web of lies we have worked so hard for so many years to weave, now ensnares the very people who erected this house of cards and as we rocket towards the cliff, the average American citizen seems none the wiser despite increasing signs from around the globe that this cannot end well for anyone.
In my recent column - Greece Todayâ€”USA Tomorrow - Under Obamaâ€”I might have understated Americaâ€™s position in the timeline of events that will most likely end with the utter collapse of pretty much every nation on earth, including the good ole USA.
At the time, I believed that the USA was months behind Greece in the impending economic collapse category. Now I see that the USA might be only days or weeks behind Greece in this regard as the same folks responsible for the collapse all over the globe begin to behave just like their brethren in Greece, right here in American cities.
Citizens have lost their collective minds. Before we can begin an education process, say, Economics 101â€”You Canâ€™t Spend More Than You Make, - we must first put the people through a deprogramming effort.
As I have told my children since youth, ignorance is the lack of information which is easily cured by a dramatic increase in needed information. But stupidity is something quite different, for which there is no cure.
Time to Connect the Dots As Democrat New York Governor David Patterson sought to feather the nests of his closest aides and allies with lavish pay increases topping 29%, he was pushing for a furlough of 100,000 state employees in an emergency effort to keep New York state from bellying up under the weight of excessive government waste in one of the highest taxed states in the country.
Of course Government Employee Labor Unions were furious, taking to the streets of New York like Greek union thugs, threatening to make the streets of New York look like the streets of Athens if someone didnâ€™t step in and stop Patterson from putting 100,000 state workers on the unemployment line.
In rides the knight in shining armor on silver steed, a federal court judge who immediately issues a stay blocking New York from laying off 100,000 workers on the basis ofâ€”â€œit wasnâ€™t collectively bargainedâ€â€”which means, the labor union objectsâ€¦and on that basis alone, one man stopped the state of New York, its elected Governor and the state legislature from balancing their own budget before going belly up. End analysis?â€”Where did statesâ€™ rights go?
Where will that federal judge be when New York payroll checks bounce?
Meanwhile, one must ask, since government jobs are taxpayer funded, why do we even have public sector labor unions which can hold taxpayers hostage under thug collective bargaining rules, perpetually increasing the cost of government to the detriment of every taxpayer, until we hit the bottom of the resource well?
Many other US cities and states are in the same position as New York. Since we now think federal legal precedent is the new supreme law of our land, this judge single handedly established that no city or state has the right to self-govern, unless they clear it with labor union thugs first.
The Root of All Evil Above all others, four groups are responsible for the complete destruction of our nation and nations around the globe.
â€¢Public Sector Labor Unions â€¢Lawyers & Law Professors â€¢Public Communications Industry â€¢Money Changers & Currency Traders Over the last ten years alone, Public Sector Labor Unions have invested over $187 million in American politicians (policy makers), over 91% of it to Democrats. The Public Communications Industry that forms public opinion by way of information flow has given over $800 million to American policy makers, more than 60% of it to Democrats.
Lawyers are the single largest financial supporters of todayâ€™s Democrats, having given more than $1.2 billion to policy makers over the last ten years, more than 71% of it to Democrats.
Money changers, currency traders in particular, those responsible for wrecking currencies all over the globe, like George Soros, have invested more than $41.5 million in policy makers over the last ten years, more than 65% of it with Democrats.
As a result, Democrats are in charge of all branches of the federal government today and they are bankrupting the nation via the Poison Ivy League Cloward-Piven Strategy for forcing global socialism upon all civilized nations, especially the United States of America, the worldâ€™s most productive society.
Money changers are raking in billions in profits as currencies all over the world are destroyed, and pouring some of those profits into Democrat policy makers who make it all possible.
Lawyers are engaged in subverting the US Constitution instead of upholding and defending the rule of law, so that the American people have no clue what their real rights are anymore or where they can seek peaceful legal redress of issues of increasing concern.
The labor unions are bankrupting cities, states, and the federal government from sea to shining sea and the Public Communication system makes certain that no American can connect all of these dots.
Moments of Sanity Largely Ignored Occasionally, a glimmer of truth slips through the cracksâ€¦MUST READ moments of reality that society cannot afford to miss.
â€¢Federal judge over-rules New York State Government on behalf of unions â€¢Gold Reaches Record as Europeans Pile Inâ€”Euro in deep trouble â€¢Democrats Get Millions From Hedge Fund Billionaires â€¢US Government Programs Have Yet to Boost Small Business Lendingâ€”proving once again that government can only create government sector jobs at increased taxpayer expense â€¢And It Will Get Even Worse For Greeceâ€”the UK, USA and all others headed in the same direction Itâ€™s a law of nature, what goes up must come down. You cannot spend what you donâ€™t have for very long before nobody will pick up your tab anymore.
In Greece, the streets of New York, Chicago, LA and Michigan, labor union thugs increase the sometimes violent demand for more and more from a public trough run dry. To answer their demands, government must simply print more currency to cover payroll that can be covered no other way at present.
Then, the tax increases you were told wonâ€™t happen, MUST happenâ€¦
Once Tax & Spendâ€”Now Spend and Tax The taxes taken in over the years were spent decades ago. It took the USA seventy years to go from zero national debts to $10 trillion in debt. But it has taken the Obama administration only eighteen months in power to increase national debt by 40% to almost $14 trillion, not counting any of the unfunded social-justice promises made to secure a fraudulent election.
In the good old days, we taxed first and then spent. Today, we spend first then figure out how to tax.
Tax we must or Collapse we will! If a federal court will not allow New York State to cut spending because it offends all important labor unions that fund the Democrat Party, New York will have only two options left. Shut down the state government, or borrow more printed debt from the Fed to kick the can a little further down the road.
Many other cities and states are in the exact same condition, forced into that economic corner by pro-union and pro-social justice federal policies that make it an act of racism not to keep the gravy train rolling.
Greece has already hit this wall, as has Iceland. Portugal, Spain and Italy are only days behind them, which is why the EU and IMF put up a trillion in fake currency to rescue Greece from its $100 billion disaster. There are more disasters comingâ€¦
This is why the Euro is in real danger of collapse. Yet the dollar and all other currencies are still following behind, with the exception of the United Kingdom which has just now seen the light, putting conservatives in control of their government for the first time since Margaret Thatcher, before London looks like Athens.
Maybe British citizens remembered what Thatcher was famous for sayingâ€¦â€œSocialism is a good idea until you run out of other peopleâ€™s moneyâ€¦â€ (I paraphrase)
What are Americans Thinking? Well, according to a recent Rasmussen poll, 53% of American citizens think public sector labor unions are a good idea. Maybe this represents the 53% of citizens who really donâ€™t pay any federal income taxes and therefore, cannot feel the pinch of the Cloward-Piven Strategy personally yet?
They see whatâ€™s happening in Greece on their TV screens, but they donâ€™t understand why itâ€™s happening and how it relates to where America is headed in the coming days and weeks, as city after city, state after state reach the bottom of the barrel with no way to clear government payroll checks.
Most Americans instinctively hate lawyers, but few know why they should.
Most Americans know that they are being lied to by their press, but they are so accustomed to it that they know not what to do about it.
The Simple Solution 1.End our nation of lawyers and return to a nation of lawsâ€”nobody can even understand what lawyers write today, and thatâ€™s by intent. They plan to make it up as they go in court anyway. 2.End ALL public sector labor unions and do away with union bid only contractsâ€”government jobs should be lower paying â€œgovernment serviceâ€ positions, for people interested in â€œserving the people,â€ not getting rich. 3.End currency speculation and profiteering by the manipulation and destruction of entire economies by hedge fund thugs. 4.Force news agencies to become the eyes and ears of the people again, and hold them directly accountable for failing to report the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The 100,000 furloughed government employees should be private sector employees operating under government bid contracts in the first place. No union needed. The contractor who delivers the best product for the best price wins the contract.
Thanks to unions, lawyers, international currency thugs, a corrupt news media and Democrats, our nation is on the edge of the cliff and only reversing course in these areas will pull us back from the abyss.
We can do this the easy way or the hard wayâ€¦We can do it while we still have options on the table, or do it when there are no other options on the table. I prefer an organized controlled disaster over an uncontrollable free-fall from greatness.
But make no mistake - we will do it sooner or later. Like Greece, we will soon have no other choice.
