From CBS.com:

Agent: I was ordered to let U.S. guns into Mexico ATF agent says "Fast and Furious" program let guns "walk" into hands of Mexican drug cartels with aim of tracking and breaking a big case.

This certainly does NOT help matters! Is it still debatable that the US Govt. should be shrunk in size?

Article seems to be depending on inelasticity of demand, which in my experience, is a poor bet. 

If oil goes to $200/barrel, who would pay it? Most petro consumption in this country is commercial. Depression would gut demand.

Delia Surridge[wakes in an apparently empty room] It's you, isn't it? You've come to kill me.
V[from the shadows] Yes.
Delia: Thank God... After what happened, after what they did, I thought about killing myself, but I knew that one day you'd come for me. I didn't know what they were going to do. I swear to you. Read my journal.
V: What they did was only possible because of you.
DeliaOppenheimer was able to change more than the course of a war. He changed the entire course of human history. Is it wrong to hold on to that kind of hope?
V: I've not come for what you hoped to do. I've come for what you did.
Delia: It's funny. I was given one of your roses today. I wasn't sure you were the terrorist until I saw it. What a strange coincidence that I should be given one today.
V: There are no coincidences, Delia. Only the illusion of coincidence. I have another rose, and this one is for you.
Delia: Are you going to kill me now?
V: I killed you 10 minutes ago, [holds up a small hypodermic needle] while you slept.
Delia: Is there any pain?
V: No.
Delia: Thank you. [pauses briefly] Is it meaningless to apologize?
V: Never.
Delia: I'm so sorry. [dies]

The U.S. "should take unilateral action?"  They may have already done just that.  According to this website, anyway: http://pakobserver.net/detailnews.asp?id=78009

of course, with all the manipulation in the 'markets' few can see (or quantify accurately) what is real or what is simply a manipulation.

While everyone has a right to their opinion, I've never been very impressed with Celente's "predictions". If you take the time to try and be reasonably informed with reputable information, he's just pushing the obvious. So why bother putting him on.

Why is this happening? Unchecked global greed, that's why. Powerful corporations have been given unchecked power by the system. In the States, legally corporations are "people". Many states have "right to work" laws which give you no rights at all.

The other element in this? Who has the money and power. It's one thing to say, you need an attorney. Have you checked the hourly rates of attorneys? Not all but many say we'll give you a free consultation. But in reality, you're screened by a paralegal and never speak to one. Now, if you're rich and powerful, would this attorney avoid you or speak to you directly?

Fear's also involved. The obvious fears of losing everything because of something that's not your fault (an illness, losing your job and other things). But also, fear of other things as well. Example: imagine for a moment that 9/11 was an inside job. Imagine there's finally proof that the CIA did kill JFK.  

In this current climate, would anybody care? Would anybody be prosecuted? Look at the Wikileaks releases. Has anyone been prosecuted? No. Is anyone being tortured because of these? Bradley Manning.

My prediction? Millions won't march to stop this.

Celente predicted ecomonic catastrophe and societal breakdown for 2008 and when it didn't happen then he moved it up to 2009, then 2010, now 2011...

Or millions will march, NPR and Fox will say it was 100,000 and switch over to a story about Paris Hilton in rehab and up next sports.

Marcus McSpartacus's picture

the only way millions will march like the '60s again, is if the chicks and drugs can compete with what's available on Wall Street

 Because printing is easier than creating real value; because globaliaztion was sold to you; when what it really meant was send all the money to China, and see how that works out. and so forth. These problems were caused 100% by the government. Which was bought, and paid for. In 1971 Nixon refused to pay the legal debts of the USA; what did you think was going to happen. Uhm? What; something diffenrent; something new and wonderful; unicorn frizzles?; no the same old thing; bankruptrcy and death by leverage. Nothing new at all. Nothing.

My mother used to be a chicken hawk, never saw a war that she didn't agree with Rupert Murdoch or Rumsfeld. I was in inactive reserves when the buildup for Gulf War 1 was starting, when the government came looking for me she suddenly didn't know how to find me...She told me about it a decade later.  Hypocrites, the lot of them. Super quick to bring the hammer down as long as it doesn't involve them directly. When do we reach critical mass for bullshit? Do we have some charts for that?

I guess China is planning to shut the internet down...: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/8356921/China-train...

If we're not careful we won't even make it till December 21st, 2012. Be a shame if we all die before the end of the world.

On a lighter note I planted a dozen cantaloupe seeds today and hope to get the rest of the vegetable and herb seeds in their starter pots over the weekend. Watch the world go to blazes makes a man hungry and I like knowing where my vittles came from whenever possible.


As pop used to say, life is a shit sandwich, but if you got enough bread you don't have to eat so much shit. He also said "save your money when your young so when you are old you can tell them to go hell".  He was not the most flowery speaker, but in fact managed to impart a good bit of wisdom to a child who thought he knew everything.


Good luck and keep your powder dry, things will eventually get better, but probably not until they get much worse first.

domains-are-hard-assets's picture

Re: In fact, just about every kind of "hard asset" that you can possibly name is going up in price.  Investors don't like all of this instability and they are looking for safe places to put their money.

I think that is indeed true.  One area to watch closely is internet domain names -- the online real estate of the Internet.  Domain names are a proxy investment for the growth of the internet. The online economy is outgrowing the offline economy, hence the insane valuation of companies like Demand Media. The value is in their enormous domain holdings.

For those unaware of the dynamics in this market, there is a sea-change under way. For almost a decade "Domainers" made insane amounts of money through a practice called "parking". The major feed providers notably Google and Bing/Yahoo have nipped this in the bed, substantially taking away that revenue stream.

What is happening now is the next phase of domain investment.  The land-grabbing domainers are finally selling domains at reasonable prices just as high net worth individuals are entering the market for "online real estate". The result is a brief window where new players in the market can enter cost effectively.

The most lucrative point of entry is so-called "Drop catching" -- every day 80,000 domains are dropped by the prior owners. New investors pick these up for pennies on the dollar. In our case, we go a step further and develop them for eventual retail sale to buyers. For a sampling see EpikDomains.com. For more on Domaining, see epik.com/blog

The central problem is that multinationals are trying to get more and more efficiency from systems as the price of oil rises - this infrastructure was built for a lower price.

As efficiency increases to counter the limited growth in oil consumption more and more redundancy is taken from the system.

This system will work until it does not - then it will break, it seems impossible to reverse the gears in the machine.

The world needs a more localised redundant supply chain but it seems inefficient from a profitability standpoint.

Such highly adapted efficient niche creatures in the natural world are very vulnerable to extinction while less efficient jack of all trades organisms can get through though times with more grace.

There seems to be a natural push to create such systems but the faster better cheaper organisms always hit a extinction wall with more certainty somehow , leaving whatever creature that can learn to turn its less adapted claw to new niches.


We are close to a economic extinction event with a real possibilty of mass die off.

Well, not exactly.

They're ready to send YOUR sons and daughters to fight and die. No one they know or care about will ever be in harm's way.

A quote from one of my favorite authors a 100 years ago;There are not many, even among educators and statesmen, who comprehend the causes that underlie the present state of society. Those who hold the reins of government are not able to solve the problem of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. You should hear what she said about unions before unions were even a force to be reckoned with.
