Paul Farrell Explains Why America Needs An "Evil Plan" In Advance Of The Next Revolution

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Unlike many of his colleagues at MarketWatch, Paul Farrell has never hidden his contempt for the broken financial and social system currently imploding at every step, although courtesy of enjoyable and distracting $0.99 apps and semi-soft porn dancing shows on primetime, few seem to care or notice. For those who do notice, however, Paul has some words of caution: prepare an "evil plan" - Farrell explains: "Got your “Evil Plan” yet? You really need one. For self-defense, attacks, plain old survival. Why? Things are bad folks. And they’re going to get much worse. Trust no one. Believe nothing you hear. Nothing....While reading Hugh MacLeod’s best-seller “Evil Plans: Having Fun on the Road to World Domination” over Memorial Day I ran across a Newsweek feature, “Mad As Hell,” an ominous warning screaming: “The anger that fueled the Arab Spring is now boiling over in Europe. Could club-wielding protesters be in America’s future too?. What’s an “Evil Plan?” For MacLeod it started as personal, years ago when he broke free of corporate life, became an entrepreneur, made “a good living, doing what you love, without being accountable to some larger company.” That triggered a revolution." Alas, if only it was as easy for most as it is for MacLeod...

Farrell explains further:

At first MacLeod jokingly called his decision an “Evil Plan:” Declaring independence, he was no longer controlled by soulless companies, trapped like most Americans in jobs he hated, working to make the rich richer. But the real reason “Evil Plan” fit became clear years later: Some old friends still resent that he “pulled it off,” believe he’s “doing something morally reprehensible.” In their minds, his independence is an “Evil Plan.”

That got me thinking about Mubarak, Kadhafi, Assad and other Arab dictators. They resent the Arab masses for not “staying in their place,” hate them for demonstrating, demanding, rebelling against their dictator’s iron-fisted “rightful” rule. Yes, when the masses rise up, leaders see anyone who wants freedom as a traitor, anyone resisting authority is guided by an “Evil Plan.” And from Libya to Syria, leaders who believe they rule by a divine right also have the right to shoot anyone resisting their authority.

Looking back at history, America itself is the progenitor of the biggest "Evil Plan" ever conceived. It would only be symmetric if it follows up with the next "big" one too.

Greatest ‘Evil Plan’ ever was delivered to King George III in 1776

King George III must have seen our Declaration of Independence as an “Evil Plan,” right from the opening lines about: “All men are created equal” and “When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another ...” Yes, “Evil Plans” can be treasonous, punishable by death.

MacLeod’s reference to “Black Swan” author Nassim Taleb’s warning is the perfect answer to Newsweek’s question: “Could club-wielding protesters be in America’s future too?” Ironically, the Bush Doctrine of spreading democracy has suddenly reemerged, shifting into high gear from an Arab Spring to European Summer and next to an American Winter. The question is rhetorical. The answer is yes. It happened before, in 1776.

But can we pinpoint the timing of a revolution? No. No one saw the Arab Spring coming. Taleb offers a simple reason: “The bigger the historical event, the more random and unpredictable the consequences. Nobody saw 9/11, Pearl Harbor.” Nor predicted the JFK assassination, Hiroshima, Rome’s collapse, Black Plague or Microsoft and Apple’s beating IBM. Nor the 1929 Crash, 2000 dot-com crash, 2008 subprime meltdown. All game changers.

But our leaders ignored warning signs. “Everything just happened when it did, everybody was caught with their pants down, and everybody just had to deal with the massive unpredictable consequences afterward.”

Is Trickle Up capitalism, a long-time peeve of Farrell's and something we discussed over the weekend, to blame for what is coming?

But is an America Winter really next on some cosmic list of future Black Swans? Yes, and also quite predictable. Why? Because the same economic forces that drove the Arab Spring and today’s European Summer are setting up a hot American Winter.

The Inequality Gap is that force. The gap divides the Super Rich 1% from the rest of America. In “The American Interest” a few months ago Francis Fukuyama, a leading neoconservative, wrote: “A study by Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez shows that between 1978 and 2007 the share of U.S. income accruing to the top one percent of American families jumped from 9% to 23.5 % of the total. These data point clearly to the stagnation of working-class incomes in the United States: Real incomes for male workers peaked sometime back in the 1970s and have not recovered since.”

Warning: The last time this Inequality Gap was this big was just before the 1929 Crash and the Great Depression. Trickle-up capitalism: The rich get richer, the masses get poorer. It happened with Arab dictators, in Europe, and it’s coming to a head in America.

Capitalism is class warfare: Today, a generation of Reaganomics missteps has created relentless trickle-up gains, the top 1% got richer. But real income for the have-nots, the bottom 99% has stagnated. Capitalism is destroying the economy, negating the “will of the people” and fueling the coming Second America Revolution. Except this time our George III is a conspiracy of Wall Street, Washington, Corporate America and the Forbes 400 Super Rich.

"You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you..."

The ultimate ‘Evil Plan:’ When leaders betray the people’s trust

Toward the end of “Evil Plans,” MacLeod reveals a secret: “Evil Plans are gifts: You were given a gift by the Creator, God, the Universe …Whatever. Until you have returned the favor, life will have a certain, feckless emptiness to it.” Yes, even leaders answer to the same higher authority as you and me.

So here’s the big message: When leaders — whether Arab, European or American — rebel against that higher authority at that very moment their “Evil Plans” become “evil” in the classical sense. They are violating the sacred compact between that higher authority, the leader and his people. They lose their right to rule, as did Mubarak, Assad and Kadhafi. And a revolution is ignited.

So today, our world is witnessing a battle of “Evil Plans,” between rulers in Arabia, Europe and America, and the masses they have betrayed.

That same breach must have been much on the mind of Jonathan Chait, a senior editor of th New Republic, when he wrote his damning indictment of the “Ryan Plan” in a Newsweek article. The headline: “War on the Weak: How the GOP came to view the poor as parasites — and the rich as our rightful rulers.”

The same could be said of Arab dictators; here, the GOP’s “rightful rulers” see the public as “parasites.” The goal of the “Ryan Plan” was to destroy Medicare as we know it by converting it into a voucher system favoring GOP’s donors. The public revolted.

The conclusion is something that could have been sourced in a Mike Krieger letter:

Bottom line: You really do need an “Evil Plan.” Now. For self-defense, for counter-attacks, for survival. Things are bad out there. And they are going to get worse. Trust no one. Believe nothing you hear. Nothing.

Why? The collective mind-set of America’s leaders, in both parties, in banking, everywhere, is in cover-up mode, hiding behind hype, lies and happy talk. Lacking discipline, they are out-of-control money addicts, self-destructive, unable to stop themselves.

Ironically, the best form of retaliation is not to oppose "them" directly: the public, the regulators, the taxpayers should really just stand aside and let the banking syndicate eat itself alive. The more pushback there is, the easier it is to effectuate the ongoing middle class destruction. Which is why the contrarian approach is to simply let the world's financial kleptocracy do what it wants, and get it done fast: it will still achieve its end goal of terminal wealth transfer, but in doing so the parasite will finally kill the host, leading, finally, to the long-overdue reset which everyone wishes for, yet nobody knows how to achieve.

The locust bankers have descended in the fields and consumed everything in their path.  Little Pink Houses are sitting empty, and the copper stripped from them.  They have jacked every last useless idiot American into the liquidity bubble stock market, while arbitraging his gold and silver with triple levered futures contracts.  They have destroyed his dollar.  They have destroyed competitiveness.  

They who see through the lens of Ponzinomics have actually destroyed his liberties, empowered the idiots in DC to violently repress a nation of disenfranchised...who are understandably unhappy and betrayed.

There is nothing left, and these are supposed to be the geniuses amongst us.

Any day now, the layoffs in the financial services sector will begin, as six figure bonuses for people sitting around doing nothing no longer makes sense...and they consume each other.

And the sound you are about to hear is the sound of the Plunging and Screaming trade.

Yes, and at the heart of it are the HFT platforms and algo's that have destroyed honesty, fairness and any credibility in the markets. Ted Butler explains what they do in the silver market.  (courtesy of Ed Steer)

"Who are these HFT traders? You guessed it – mostly the big silver shorts, led by JPMorgan and other dominant CME Group members. Only these big traders can afford the million dollar computer hardware and software to run the HFT algorithms. How has it come to the point where giant traders with documented concentrated silver short positions have been further allowed to dominate daily trading volume that causes sharp dives in the price of silver? It is so crazy and outrageous that it should make your blood boil. Believe it or not, I’m trying to contain my outrage. These HFT traders, led by the JPMorgan silver crooks, are like a band of outlaws in the old West who have come to control and terrorize a town and its citizens."

"The central cause of this travesty of a group of crooked traders coming to dominate positions and volume by virtue of concentration is the CME Group. The CME has created this Frankenstein of a market. Because the CME is a for-profit corporation, it is concerned primarily with generating additional profits. Its revenue comes from trading volume, as the CME gets paid for every contract traded. Therefore, it will do anything to increase trading volume, including, I believe, promoting increased volume by illegal means. I would define illegal as including the promotion of practices encouraging concentration, which HFT does."

"Let’s face it – HFT is about massive concentrated computerized day trading designed to manipulate the price and bring in trading revenue to the CME. It’s not about promoting true price discovery and an increase in legitimate hedging, the economic purpose of futures trading. At the exact same time that actual COMEX silver deliveries are hitting historic low levels, electronic volume has hit new highs. This means that COMEX silver is becoming a paper trading mechanism, as opposed to a legitimate futures exchange where real producers and consumers go to hedge. In short, the COMEX is more a bucket shop than a legitimate exchange."

"You know what I'd rather have them do — this will make my Republican friends puke — as gas is going to go down here now, we ought to just slap a 50-cent or a dollar tax on a gallon of gas," Akerson said.

"In his interview with The News, Akerson also weighed in on the nation's debt ceiling, saying Congress should raise it from its current $14.3 trillion mark."

RE: Bay of Pigs

Thanks for posting. Most ZH readers know all this. What is the point however?

The CFTC and SEC know this as well, so does Congress and the banking cartel. Butler is a broken record. He brings this stuff to our attention, but offers no real solutions as to how to fix them. The reality is that short of ending government regulatory capture, nothing will be done. It all in your face bull by the banksters,  daring everyone to try to stop them.

That was my point in posting. 

And Butler has brought specific solutions to the table. Namely position limits that Congress passed already but have not been enacted by the CFTC.

It's a complete shitshow, I know that. I just get tired of those clowns trying to tell me I don't know what's going on.

They are, truly, literally, inbreds. They are very close to have finished off their enemy, the traditional American, and then will go to a new host to do their parasitic deeds. They even have a foundation in China, Ehud Olmert, the former Israeli leader, his grandparents are from China. Small world.

I believe.  This multitrillion-dollar revolution and assassination fund smells like Rothschild money.  Now, bend your mind around this upcoming evil-plans fund on our side.  Reposted from:

http://www.zerohedge.com/article/charting-non-linearity-hyperinflation-and-predicting-americas-future-courtesy-ancient-histor#comment-1327210

BitCoins have the kleptocracy protection of PMs, and they are highly divisible and a lot easier to stuff through an ethernet cable.  The number of coins is mathematically capped at 21 million.  Figure in population increase and loss of coins due to shattered hard drives, etc. and this will be a deflationary currency.  Good for saving, certainly much better than bonds.  I wouldn't be shocked to see a $21 trillion Bitcoin market emerge if the kleptocracy gets really bad.  That means an exchange rate of $1m per Bitcoin (currently $9 per BitCoin).  So even though BitCoin is up 3000x since the first recorded PayPal trades in April 2010, it could easily run up by another multiple of 3000. 

https://www.bitcoinmarket.com/market/tools/

There were many blocks of 10,000 that traded back in the good 'ol days.  I have only a small fraction of that because I bought in last month, but there are probably hordes of crypto-anarchist geeks out there who will ultimately be worth billions of clownbux.  The ones closest to the nerve center will be the richest and they will also hate the system the most.

Now, imagine what will happen after the inevitable hyperinflation, food riots and brutal crackdown.  The government will have lost all legitimacy in the eyes of the people, and everyone will be looking around to see who throws the first Molotov.  Enter BitCoin.  It's just a matter of time until someone posts a YouTube video of a flaming cop car while holding a poster of their BitCoin address.  Only shutting down the internet will stop the distributed anarchist horde from donating.  Word will spread.  Crimminals will target the powerful instead of the middle class.  Eventually the going rate might be .01 BTC per flaming cop car, .1 BTC per flaming cop, 1 BTC per flaming federal building, 100 BTC for a Rothschild dosed with scopolamine and mindfucked into spilling all his dark secrets before he is eaten alive by maggots.  Even this would only be a drop in the horde's ocean of buying power.  I think we are going to have a lot of cypherpunks living in Dubai penthouses surrounded by hookers but wanking to the increasingly creative homebrew snuff porn they finance.  Their combined mayhem fund might even exceed the Rothschilds' mayhem fund.

Project Mayhem is coming.  This is the will of Eris, who always knows the one action which will turn any situation into a total clusterfuck.  She will be an important ally in the coming years.

Beans, bullets and bullion is for self preservation (I am onboard with that). 

My "evil plan" is to starve the beast, by legally limiting the amount of ALL taxes (sales, income, social security, property, etc..) paid to the parasites.  You also have to watch for the cops, whom have evolved into revenue agents for local, county and state governments.  They are writing every ticket they can to generate cash for their employers.

I am with you. The cops have become increasingly stupid and aggressive in my city also.  Feel ya on that tax reduction thing too. 

The FED's stated desired inflation rate is 2%.  Eventually, an inflation rate of 2% becomes exponential, and by the end our our lifetime, our work efforts equals to a total lifetime net worth of zero.  I reduce inflation by reducing my commercial consumption, plus as you say, it starves the beast.  No sales equals no sales tax.

Recently a friend was driving in his car with his son on route to one of his many suburban/exurban weekend activities) and he was pulled over and given a ticket for talking on his cell phone.  He had cancelled the cell phone several months earlier. 

No matter.  They give you the ticket and hope you don't show up so you'll just pay the nuisance fee. $250 ticket.  Used to be only $100.

For fun, next time a cop pulls you over and hands you a ticket strike up a conversation about why the fine is $250 ... not $25 or $2500. The answer is revenue maximization; at $25 the officer costs too much and at $2500 people fight it in court. $250 is the sweet spot for revenue. If you can get to this point subtlety enough it may be possible to enlighten the "civil servant" ...

Not recommended.  You risk tacking on 'resisting arrest' (a traffic stop is an arrest); and/or 'obstruction of a peace officer performing his duties'.  They'll be added to your fine and you won't just be in traffic court anymore.

Yeah.  That's it.  A couple hundred thousand people on a speck of sand 6000 miles away are doing it.  You fucking idiot myopic haters of Israel had better gird your MOTHERFUCKING loins.  You are about to see what real wrath is all about.  You are on the wrong side, and your end will be insanely painful and unnecessary. 

I am finally sick enough of this to post all this.  What has happened to you people?  Otherwise reasonable, intelligent, well -spoken and -written individuals go off the deep end when it comes to slamming Israel and the Jewish Nation.  Many of you  I actually LIKE until you start going off on how every problem on earth is somehow caused by "The Joos..."  God was right:  They WILL be despised among nations.  With or without cause!  They literally can't win! 

And don't junk me and come back with all this bullshit about how somehow it's "not the Jews... it the ZIONISTS!"  or, it's "not the ZIONISTS it's the NATION of ISRAEL," or some other blather that you can come up with to justify your deep-seated, irrational hatred.  Even if you were right about the source of your discontent:  how, exactly, does that rationalize your demeanor, attitude and outright VITRIOL towards ANY one group of people?

I can't tell you how many times my heart has broken while reading the bile and puerile hatred spewing from these pages when anyone even mentions anything even remotely connected to the Jewish Nation.  Shit: in the case of the poor shmoe I'm coming down on right now, the article didn't even address anything Jewish.  This fuckface Dejean Splicer just randomly threw his hatred into an otherwise innocuous piece discussing domestic economics.

Some of you, forgive me.  I made it my new year's resolution to not get this pissed off in my Hometown Zero Hedge.  But this is getting ridiculous.  And, irrational as it may sound to some of you, especially those atheists out there, I truly believe that siding against the Nation of Israel in this, their hour of greatest need, will absolutely come back and flame our collective asses to hell.

That's my opinion.  It's worth what you paid for it.

I'm not doing this to collect junks.  I've always been honest with my community here on ZH about what I think about things.  I've never once trolled or tried to piss people off just because I could.  I treasure this community more than any other online entity.  Those of you who have been here awhile know this to be true.

God, forgive those who forget Your people, flawed as they may be.  They know not what they do.

Peace.

God's chosen people wouldn't rape, pillage, and steal blind anyone and anything that is not nailed down and they certainly wouldn't be represented OVERWHELMINGLY in every financial disaster to fell the world in the past century and a half. Are there good jews? Sure. Are there bad jews? You betcha. Israel is an aggressive nation that is NOT the shining light of the world no matter what you believe. And neither is America.

You fucking idiot myopic haters of Israel had better gird your MOTHERFUCKING loins.  You are about to see what real wrath is all about.  You are on the wrong side, and your end will be insanely painful and unnecessary.

while I get that you're angry, perhaps you can explain just what this "threat" means?  are you speaking on behalf of the nation of Israel?  or your peaceful Father in Heaven?  can you tell me just what "sides" are available to "take"?  who vs. who?

can you differentiate between humans, between those who are preying on others?  can you acknowledge that a higher percentage of "dual passport" holders are currently holding positions of power in this nationstate's institutions?  can you acknowledge the same skewed numbers are present in the financial institutions that manipulate world markets?  can you let your mind know these facts?

I have many long term friends who were raised by jewish parents - I use those words precisely, because not all of them refer to themselves as "jewish" today - and they can acknowledge that something is skewed and wrong with the way the anglo-amrkn alliance is disproportionately favouring & assisting Israel, while covertly stirring up dissent in nationstates surrounding, keeping the whole region destabilised.  can you not see or acknowledge this?

your opening paragraph suggests a wrath of god apocalypse retribution scenario - yet you end with the word "peace." are you at all familiar with the Zionist agenda?  it's not peace-full.  nor are the plans of those who align themselves with a "globalist" agenda.

in order to remain vigilant and informed, one needs to recognise certain facts before forming opinions based on them. . . when people surrender autonomy to act & defend a group, they will be treated as a part of that group, choose wisely.

If you want to die for yet another bullshit war in Israel's interest, then go.  Good riddance; perhaps the next generation of American Christians will be a little less stupid.  As for me, I will celebrate the day when America is no longer an Israeli puppet state.

Remember back in grade school, where there was a big dumb bully and his conniving little pal, who the bully thought was his best friend?  Remember how the bully used to pound the lunch money out of whoever the little twerp chose, while he sat back with a big shit-eating grin?  Remember how the bully overdosed on the little punk's meth, a.k.a. Jew Confetti?  Remember how everyone beat him to a bloody pulp after school when they realized the bully was dead?  Israel will suffer the same fate at the hands of the Arabs.  Hopefully it will happen shortly after all the banksters with dual citizenship flee there, as I don't expect justice for any of them via legal means.

so long as you clearly delineate that it isn't necessarily the entire clan of lizards, although they sure as shit do practice nondiversity and massive ethnic nepotism while at the same time founding organizations to destroy white people who do the same.

Eject the lizards at the top, and see how it goes.  If you start down that path, however, the entire media, finance, and race hustling machine they built and still run will spring into action and they still have the brainwashed hearts and minds of idiot YT all over the country.

Next time someone plays the slavery card, also refer them to Lou Farrakhan's material on the slave trade, sourced from lizard authors.  It seems according to these books that on lizard holidays in brazil, the slave markets were closed due to inadequate buyers and sellers.

The entire foundation for your guilt belongs to somebody else.  Once you dig a little and accept that, you will be free.

Your premise is pretty silly.  The Jewish people revere a holy book and study it incessantly, promoting reading, writing and scholarship.  Is it any wonder than such a people are so successful in a modern complex economy that values (and pays a premium for) education?

Are you going to go after the Asians next because they are disproportionately represented in NYC's elite schools where admission is based upon standardized testing?

Jews get ahead not because they are Jews, but in spite of it.  A glaring example would be in the white shoe NYC law firms, where Jews were rejected.  Those jews opened up their own firms, and now the most prestigious NYC lawfirms practicing corporate law are those same firms that were founded by Jewish lawyers.  Other ethnic groups need to learn and repeat this behavior, instead of complaining about nepotism. 

 

As if white wasp culture has no nepotism?  We need look no further than "Shrub's" admission to Yale to see that.  Good grief.

Actually, the Babylonian Talmud is a long series of prescriptions for aggrandizing the Tribe, and screwing the daylights out of everyone else. And that, they're good it. Most troubling is "Kill the Best  Goyim" or, as Susan Sontag (Jewess) put it more recently, "the white race is the cancer of human history." WASPs are nepotistic? Not anymore: Supreme Court: 4 Jews, 5 "others"....not a white anglo-saxon Protestant among them. This is called: elite displacement.

I think you are correct.  A shortage of food and resources may harden a populations resolve, though im afraid they will draw the wrong conclusions.  Liberty will be seen as the cause of their problems, and socialism the solution; it's the easy way out, and that's what our culture is all about.  It will end badly.

Would you end Social Security?  I would, but right now there are so many baby-boomers that demand their slice of the pie also.  My parents bought rental property to serve as a retirement income, my husband's parents have lots of property & investments, but both families anticipate their monthly check and complain because it's not enough.  What about those who pissed away their money and now, reaching retirement age are unprepared.  Not to mention the FICA contribution is really just a tax that politicians have spent before they received it, and FICA has funded general revenue for years.  What about all the "contributions" that I made?  It gets very muddy pretty quick.  Personally, I'd take my chances.  If the government would just stop demanding my FICA & Medicare contributions, I'd be willing to forgo future benefits.  If they gave me back my forced contributions, I'd sure be willing to take my chances with my investment experience as opposed to theirs.

You apparently don't know that the OASI was hijacked by Ted Kennedy and many others primarily politicians who hadn't the guts to raise taxes to pay for what Social Security trust funds have been used for like WIC, Section 8 housing, Food stamps, and dozens of other Socialist programs.  Raiding the funds of those who paid into it to pay those who didn't and don't is the reason the fund is nothing more than little bits of paper.

You are blaming the wrong group of people but that's as THEY want you to think. Do your own research into why the Social Security funds have been used to pay for national welfare programs that have nothing to do with the elderly who paid into it instead of drinking the kool aid of the left and right.

Creating money in the United States does not have the same effect as it does on a tiny country like Zimbabwe.

These comparisons of countries that have no more people than a handful to 300,000,000 growing to 400,000,000 are lame.

Creating money in this country can be managed without over the top hyperinflation. And will be.  We will never, oh the heresy-----be like Zimbabwe and I don't know why people keep writing that we will.

It won't be like Zimbabwe in the sense that most participants in that economy had SKILLS that were useful in an environment of an economic collapse.  In addition, the large size and the distances involved in the delivery of goods and services in the US require significant capital overhead to keep the just-in-time economy functioning.  The US and many of its citizens are spoiled, the USD is overvalued because of its role are current reserve currency, which greatly reduces import prices to fat consumers.  Because many in the US are spoiled they will start to display violent temper tantrums as the economy worsens, and then supply chains will start to break down, andthe vicious cycle will become self-reinforcing, before a decision is made.  That decision will either be "suck it up Charlie" and an austerity that is death of "socialism" or hyperinflation.  The current "socialism-lite" is unsustainable.

Zimbabwe is also a convenient metaphor, since many idiots don't realize how often currency collapses or hyperinflation occur in the world.  Germany went from world powerhouse to Weimer in short order, so did States of the former USSR, south of the border- Argentina has always been a small winy bitch compared to Brazil, even in terms of recent hyperinflationary episodes.

I agree.  We are already seeing it in the elderly, and if nothing else our country is going to be inundated for decades with more and more elderly who demand to be taken care of no matter what. 

It remains to be seen if any politician will refuse them their social security and medical care. 

We have gravitated ever more to the left, with the epitome of it reflected in the Wall Street and other country bailouts that are nothing but socialist schemes, printing money to buy those out of their disastrous decisions. No consequences, and even worse, paid huge trillions of dollars in bonuses for failure.

It's simple. The Fed under Greenspin and Bernhanke have pursued effectively a negative real interest rate policy. This combined with out of control Fed and State spending has led to the US's present predicament.

Thank you. Farrell claims that the fault lies with both parties, but than attacks both Reagan and Paul Ryan for wanting to lower taxes on cap gains. One would assume that Farrell believes that the road to the Radiant Future lies through Obamacare and more government spending.

His instincts are correct, but he misses out on the role of Big Ponzi and the Fed. Methinks he trusts Democrats too much.

I am a great believer in one location, two location, three location, principle.

So move out of USA and go to Costa Rica or some quiet little place where they don't eat, drink and shit fiats all day long...Take your PMs with you...Sayonara!

That's great.....until Costa Rica decides that enough western money has arrived, and implements new 'laws'....which will be strikingly similar to the ones you tried to get away from in the first place.

Lets face it, third world central american governments aren't known for their longevity when it comes to upholding liberty.

Still, I will admit anything is possible.

There is no geographic escape from tyranny.  If liberty is allowed to die here, it will quickly perish elsewhere.  All of the people suggesting departure for greener pastures are horribly naive.

Isn't the government's budget something like 30% entitlement spending? Why would anyone want to rebel from that? The poor have never had it so good, with their hi-def TVs, and their 20 inch chrome rims. Food stamps and subsidized housing are not the recipe for a revolution.

30%?  You mean 75%, right? LOL  Take a look at a pie chart of the budget.  The majority of it is unconstitutional and immoral welfare.

Silver,

There is a huge difference in Welfare, and Entitlements.

Entitlements are earned,welfare is free(to the recips).

Sooner or later some here will learn the difference between Worked for, and Free.

hmmmm, me thinks mortgaging a houseboat to evade taxes sounds like a good start. Then, in the spirit of getting evil, me thinks renovating the exterior of the boat beyond recognition in order to "evade" the repo man when me doesn't pay the mortgage sounds even better! Me also thinks that isn't evil enough and will attempt to grow herb on the boat and siphon taxless cash out of the economy to help finance the pirate way.

1) Paul Farrell is a fucking leftist idiot.

2) Bread and circuses... that is, food stamps for 45 million, and Xbox and American Idol is keeping the natives at bay. So long as this continues, crime rates will stay low and they will stay home.

3) If anything occurs that leads to a disruption in the flow of welfare money or in the flow of basic services... they will be rioting in the streets within a few days.

Tyler, it is beneath ZH to quote people like Farrell, he is a nutjob. Once again, Farrell gets it only half right (which is the equivalent to getting it half wrong.)  He blames capitalism for our woes.  Capitalism is not the problem, lack of capitalism is.

Free market capitalism, missing in action since 1913, and likely much before then.

As soon as I read 'capitalism is destroying the country', I sigh with disappointment. Another zombie lemming shilling for the establishment's wet dream....while believing he is doing the exact opposite.

'No one saw 9-11 coming'....well except for Bill Cooper who warned of it 4 months before it happened. 'No one saw Pearl Harbor coming'....oh yes they did, and let it happen. 'No one saw the 'Arab spring' coming....well except for the CIA who started it on cue. Do I have to go on?

Forget QE and election foolishness thats not the game now. The bankers now need to mash down the people, seize their guns by blaming the coming massive false flag attacks on US soil on the 'American patriot terrorists'. Thats whats next.

NO ONE could see the 2008 subprime meltdown? Really? After asserting this fallicy, you then assert

But our leaders ignored warning signs. “Everything just happened when it did, everybody was caught with their pants down, and everybody just had to deal with the massive unpredictable consequences afterward.”

So which is it; leaders could have seen the warning signs, OR, it was their plan so they ignored the warning signs?
