So assume it is fake - nothing is going to happen because TPTB won't let it. 

 

This definitely should make us wonder WHY he was placed there, and what else is coming.

I find that a little hard to swallow TD.

You, like most of your readers, have seen this building most of your adult life.  You knew it would all come to an end.  Maybe you didn't know it was Greece, or Spain, or the LinkedIn IPO, but the details never matter when a country maxes out its credit cards, the end is inevitable.

What wasn't apparent to me until a few years ago, was that global trade has made everything so much worse.  It used to be that some countries sat out a recession/depression, or at least entered into it earlier or later than their counterparts, so that countries could aid each other, if for nothing else than there was an economy somewhere that needed to trade because they weren't in the same cycle.  Global trade put every economy in the same cyclical pattern.

We are learning what happens when all systems are linked on a global scale.  You lose any robustness of a normal global economy.  Everyone experiences the same problems everywhere, at the very same time.  Efficiency isn't always good.  A deuce and a half is robust, a Lambergini is efficient.  If some sand gets in the truck's tank, it may still run.  If one grain of sand is ingested in a high performance sports car, not a good thing.  Efficiency is real bad when you can't quantify your risks, which is the core reality of economics.

Anyway.  TY for a great job.  We all know the End Game, but we just don't know the when.

Should have been obvious Bro...............

Thank the  formation of the United Nations, and J D Rockefeller..........this was the GRAND experiment as THE way  to end all wars.

 

Interdependence on each other, would create a financial/business relationship.

 

Thus why go to war?,if you did you were only shooting yourself in the foot.

 

The idiots,(idealists,NWO Crowd) failed to realize that as Individual nation states one could catch the Pox, and not spread it to all the others.

 

Now, all are in the same house.

 

When one catches it, ALL GET IT.

There is a NO fullback position...................

An efficient economy would not have the Fed.

Glen Beck has been predicting the contagion of these uprisings for years now.  He's the first one that saw this starting in the East and then spreading to Europe.  Eventually, yes even the U.S. will have to deal with the idiots born every 30 seconds.

P.S. Egypt went from dictatorship to military dictatorship.  What happens when you topple a democratic state?  Yeah, that sounds so fantastic, I'm sure it will be unicorns and glitter.

Tards!

I asked some acquaintences if they heard about the protests in Spain.  They thought I was talking about a punker band. 

Everyone knows how this all ends, right?  This is going to be the worlds greatest non-surprise ever.  For those who were sleeping in their history class, it all ends in default, because it has ALWAYS ended in default.

The protests are NOT about austerity, even though the media tries to blame them on that, they are about people being sick and tired of the political system of the country, where two super incompetent and highly corrupt parties blame each other all the time and critizise each other while doing absolutely nothing other than that. It is of course not the only country that has this issue, but the high unemployment, construction bust, etc.. has made this feeling stronger and hence the protests, to have real leaders and politicians for once.
