I can only hope that the end of "mega churches" is near.

For how many quarters in a row can the economy decline, and still be called a recovery?

The only increasing activity is the Fed printing money to loan to the banks, so that the banks can loan it to the taxpayer.

That circle jerk is becoming the entire economy. And it doesn't really even need human beings involved. Computers can do autonomously. With a just a few operators involved, the government could generate GDP figures in the quadrillion bajillion dollars, while 99.9999% of the population remains unemployed.

On moving troops to the border, Mexico has tried using their military to combat their drug gang problem, and that really hasn't worked out for them. If we move the National Guard there, then we can expect the border to turn into a low grade war zone. The alternative is to let the border towns fall under cartel control.

As our economic problems deepen, our drug war will continue to heat up. We need to accept that a lot more innocent people are going to die to fight the war, or put an end the war. But then, that will cut the profits of interested parties on both sides of the war. Some people enjoy making a living from the suffering of others, and they will resist efforts to end the war.

Ya think? No wonder they deserve the big Welfare Whore Bailouts. They are clearly genius rocket scientists. Or not...

This could be the next "black swan". Huge repercussions when this goes mainstream IMO.

It's Ponzimonium in the Gold Market

Unbelievable interview!

"In this interview with GATA we continue the saga after just having interviewed Andrew Maguire, the whistleblower out of London. This gives a short and long-term view down the rabbit hole through the eyes of 3 of the GATA board members. GATA was so heavily involved not only in breaking the news at the CFTC meeting about the the metals manipulation but also at the same time quite possibly uncovering the largest fraud in history. The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee was organized in January 1999 to advocate and undertake litigation against illegal collusion to control the price and supply of gold and related financial securities. The committee arose from essays by Bill Murphy, a financial commentator, and by Chris Powell, a newspaper editor in Connecticut, published at Murphy's Internet site, In this GATA Roundtable we will have Bill Murphy, Chris Powell and Adrian Douglas."

Warm Prairie Wind said... "Crashing Towards a New World Social Order 2012"

Yes it was all predictable.

In fact, the road map was obvious to anyone watching the IMF in the 1970s on. The IMF which is really just a coalition of the same bankers that engineered our current crisis, did similar things in Africa. They infiltrated governments and bankrupted nations to complete their takeovers. Then they moved to South America and practiced a similar form of predatory banking.

Now it's our turn to be fed upon.

"Now it's our turn to be fed upon."

That's about it. The crash of industrial civilization will bring third world problems to the first world. It will also make being on the bottom rung of world privilege even harder, perhaps fatal for many. But that's not what bothers most American peakers.

They're horrified that "our way of life" is not sustainable. As though this suburban, two car, nuclear family thing, with the frozen pizzas and the jet vacations is what really matters. When many people say "sustainability" that's what they mean. Okay, if I change my lightbulbs and drive a Prius, I can keep the rest of it, right?

Welcome to the third world, baby. You didn't worry when it was Africans and Peruvians and Indonesians living in fear and want. But now it comes home. Too bad you made your bed in the camp of the oppressor, because it allowed them to get away with it for the whole time you've been alive.

"Now it's our turn to be fed upon."

And the Peruvians should care about us?
