China revolt/crash will save our economies... If we can hang the bankers and the corrupt scumbags in office too.
Only China crashing will make our corrupt system continue for at least a few more years. So... let the US crash before... then we hang the bankers, then China crashes... then we are golden.
The only way we survive a Chinese crash at this point is if we manage to rebuild our industrial base first.
What do you think will happen when cheap Chinese goods are suddenly no longer available? Endgame for America (and other Ponzi economies), that's what.
Improvise, adapt and overcome.
It is the American way.
So Americans are forced to no longer buy worthless plastic crap they hoard in every room of their stuffed houses. So the hell what?
The real question is what happens to the Treasury market.
It is time everyone remembered what he really needs to survive. Air, water and food.
Everything else is crap.
Life will go on.
Survival is a brutish thing without love.
Jimi would understand:
"nasty, brutish, and short"
"nasty, brutish, and short"
John would be imagining something. Go figure.
solitary poor nasty brutish and short
Yup, everyone remember air water and food. Ah shit, what're we going to do when the 90% of the country that doesn't stockpile food is rioting over food prices?
Let them eat iPads.
Swap them rioting and air for Pb, and Cu.
I try my best not to buy chinese crap, it is damn near impossible...
Unfortunately, if anybody thinks more than perhaps 1% of the population is prepared for anything like this, they are mistaken.
The sheep have been reared from birth to believe they are entitled to a world that the advertisers have created, one in which you can have that new car, 3 kids in college, a big house, all the plastic shit you need etc. and never have to worry about a thing.
There will be a collective mental breakdown, nobody knows how that may turn out.....
Exactly, I've been spending minimally since the '08 crash and have been living a much happier, cleaner life. We need to stop relying on Chinese plastics and utilize industrial hemp as a source of plastics and other material!
Once and future way.
Not the present, sadly. Some keep the flame alive, though.
The Chinese people need to learn how to use Molotov cocktails and burn all the government shit down.

A nickel is worth between 7 cents and $2.60 today.
Tis true. Coin debasement sure makes for interesting conversation, for this crowd at least. Try talking about this shit with the beer drinking baseball crowd and this is what you get - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAVoU_UXgQI&feature=player_embedded
A nickel is worth more than a dime or a quarter.
And a half cent less than a sacagawea dollar.
Soon to be worth more than said dollar.
Buy boxes of nickels.
CHINA IS ONE OF THE ONLY PLACES IN THE WORLD WHERE YOU CAN BUY 1 TON OF AMONIUM NITRATE FOR 200$!!
Just google it :)
Small explosion with 50gr of Ammonium Nitrate:
If these guys want to make bombs, they have very easy access to every chemical a terrorist can dream off :)
BOOM CHINAMASTER!! BOOM
Can you buy blasting caps by the ton too?
No. You buy them in boxes per 500pc!!
Do you really think the Chinese can overcome the submissiveness that is bred into their bones?
Some chains are stronger than steel.
Nothing more dangerous than hungry people.
+1. Correct answer.
We got so much junk stashed in garages we dont need new shit for a generation.
Personally i am a strong admirer of afro engineering.
Pack rats will come into their own.
"Afro Engineering"? Shit, that was funny!
Didn't they go on strike demanding more government subsidies for laser guided weapons.
Protesting. Another Job American's just dont want to do....
SHIZAM! I think you just won the thread my friend.
Or maybe just hanging on to one? Thanks Burn.
i spend a lot of time protesting. i feel it's more of a duty than a job though. i wish more peeps quit being so wimpy.
slavery or freedom? gee, i dunno, do i gotta stand? whats on tv?
Those most exposed to oil prices will crack first. Trucking is particularly sensitive -- and a trucking strike particularly damaging in its downstream effects.
My bet is Beijing keeps monetary policy where it is and offers support measures to the trucking industry -- for the time being.
How, by printing more money to pay for more diesel subsidies?
I've had some power tools on the radar for many months. Looks like it's time to buy them. Jointer, table saw, stuff that I'll need to make chicken coops for the neighbors.
PS, posted earlier. Found out this morning that my favorite Subway breakfast sandwich is now HALF the size it was a few weeks ago, but the price dropped to $2.25 from $2.50. It's also interesting that the menu changed so that there is nothing to compare to what was on the old menu at the old prices.
Jointer? That sounds like a fine chicken coop.
for those that want to keep chickens in their kitchen cabinets.
How do you find replies to your posts on ZH? Maybe I'm retarded but I clicked through my account etc and can't find it.
My account ---> Track --> All Threads you posted are listed--> Choose one --> Then check for new answers.
My friend on Long Island has one in his back yard. he moves it once every 3 months and then farms the area those sections. Nothing's better than a real fresh egg.
Get yourself an incubator & a http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-pbRxIlpuw . Have chicken will eat..
Give them a triple "A" rating. There, all better.
china for the chinese man man
The common denominator in all the world seems to be people expecting government to fix things. Is all of mankind slaves now?
HA! NOW? Dude what do you think civilization runs on?
Government exclusively controls the coin-we have a right to expect fairness. Private business NEEDS a sound currency in order to thrive.
