How sad the state of our country has become. At what point do we get pissed off enough to get out of our lazyboys? I think that everyone could do thier part to stop this madness. Default on your debt, and learn to no longer use credit. If the majority of people could do this that would put an end to the banksters evil grip on this country.

That's the smart part of Bernanke's plan!

Grandma's pitching arm isn't strong enough anymore to throw molotov coctails to the police!

and that kick from her old 2 barrel is becomming a bit to much for her.

We are doing it, albeit slowly.  People are avoiding credit. I have done it, and I am very vocal about it too.  People look at me like I have 3 eyes, but I tell them why.

Debt is a chain we freely place around our necks.  

The has taken up the slack in debt issuance to keep the whole thing from imploding.  When austerity hits the gov, it is over.

Bernanke is ONE man. Is ONE man really all it takes to bankrupt America? What the fuck are the other 311 MILLION people doing? This is one of many problems with the mentality in this country...........we all (not you, but people like you) sit on our hands bitching about the wicked Bernanke destroying our precious monetary system..........while we (see above) anxiously wait for a fucking super hero to come save the day. Those who do nothing to change the status quo DESERVE to be fucked, whether it's granny, our sons, daughters, mothers, neighbors, or even ourselves! (see above)

I think you would be surprised how many people are doing something about it.  The food storage business is booming.  I buy from a Mormon food supply store and there are new people in there often, just getting started.  Check out some of the survival web sites.  If you can't change the system, don't participate.  It's just normal bias for the rest.  There's a thing called universal mentality (when everyone gets the same idea at the same time)  When the shit starts to happen, there will be a shortage of rope.  We have not even begun to see hard times yet.  Remember, most people won't change until they have to.  Extend and pretend.

We were just out in Salt Lake City staying with Mormon friends. (we're not Mormon, not that there is anythign wrong with that). They have 1 year supply of food in their home, (4 kids too) I was impressed.  We're stocing up (at around 6 mo now...) but always like to get tips about where to buy.  Does the mormon place you buy have a website?  Care to post it?  

Anyone else feel free too- and good place to buy ammo too?  Costco seems to have a survival line...  (you know it's mainstream when the big box stores have survival gear)  Been looking at amazon too for the free shipping and no tax.   ammo I'm looking around for-  seen a few online  -not sure yet who to try...

Just stop by your local LDS church and ask where their food store is.  I live in a fairly small community and there is a food store there.  They are very helpful, you can purchase and can your food and most have a shelf life of 30 years.  I not mormon either but they do like to see people prepare for themselves.

In a way you are correct, but lets not forget that the federal Government were the ones that directed the banking community to grant home loans to anyone and everyone. Before someone starts to jump and down and point fingers at Dems and Reps, lets remember that this program was started under Bill clintons  adminstration, but all the republican admins that followed failed to correct it. They were all making money off it and they loved the program. So then the wheel falls off the bus around 2007 and it has been a slow ride down the hill, but now it is picking up speed. I think everyone needs to realize that it will soon get to a point that it will be every man for themselves. The people in charge are no longer going to make decisions based on the "good for the country", now it is going to be "will this save my own ass". They are no longer looking out for us and them, only them. Oh and to address your point regarding waiting for a super hero, to act alone in this day and age is suicide. We are waiting for the majority to get pissed off enough to come out into the streets and start making noise. A lone voice can be ignored, a thousand voices can be acted against locally, a million voices would demand to be heard.

from that table on net worth broken down by ethnicity, I can only assume RAYCISS whitey is why asians had higher nets than white people.

TyCarrerra's picture

No. It's because we don't give a f*ck whether someone likes us or not. We just do what we need to get done instead of whining about it... It's alright, we'll catch up to you again. :)

Dear Jim. you are preaching to the choir. Most Amerikans are so stupid it defies description. Better to go John Galt than stay in a bankrupt, corrupt system that is going to steal your wealth and take your freedom away.

traderjoe's picture

The article comes close, IMHO, but misses the bigger picture and therefore ends up missing wide of the mark. 

The Federal Reserve was specifically created to skim the wealth of the American people. Sovereign countries do not need to borrow their 'own' money - the national interest is the grift and debt-slavery is the goal. Fractional reserve banking leaves the power of money creation with private corporations. Is there a better business to be in?

BB is simply doing the bidding of his masters. All of this was set up long, long ago. The plan is working brilliantly. And to discuss Ben's policies in any sort of 'rational' light is to miss that his purpose is to defraud and deceive the American people. So far, he's doing a brilliant job. 

Go to any coin shop right now - see the people selling their silver spoons to make this month's payments. They are selling their only thing of value to pay for that next bill. They will end with nothing, and be willing slaves to the current and next machine. The FEMA camps will have 3 squares and a cot. Where do you think their gold and silver goes to?

Do not judge Ben on his actions - to do so is to participate in their game. Ben is the criminal fool of the shadow masters. The whole lot of them must be cast aside in the Great Collapse. It is up to us to ensure their actions are judged for the truth of what they are.

Excellent points Traderjoe,

Ben is but a shadow boxer. If not him there would be someone else sitting in his chair. His function as well as that of his minions is to create the financial conditions that strips two centuries of wealth from our great nation.

Most of us are like druggies waiting for our next fix. Our wealth is slowly stolen. We are close to that now. Our grandchildrens wealth is next. We have allowed then to invade our minds with propagana for several generations, to the point that we can't or won't save ourselves.

The important question is however - For what purpose is this being done? It can't be for money only. Have they not stolen enough in the last 100 years?

It's capital versus incomes from now on. Battle lines are bring drawn all over the globe. Bailouts and QE were designed to support capital. ZIRP still supports it. But incomes are being reamed and blown out of the water: real incomes have declined for 30 years straight. Worse, the cost of living, working and doing business is sharply higher in the midst of demand destruction. The backlash is coming

And the stupid fuckers can't see that inevitable end.  They're lost in their own media promoted fantasies.

I hear that telescopic batons and baseball bats were big sales items in the UK last week.

Devaluation and financial repression was near certain in 2007.  Unfortunately, many if not most are unaware of the scheme.  A 1700+ gold price indicates growing awareness.

jomama's picture

and here i thought it was just institutions covering their short positions.

Caviar Emptor's picture

Add in a cup of geopolitical instability, a cup of mega currency fluctuation and a gallon of debt saturation and you got yourself a perfect recipe for gold as the go-to safe haven

good for him. she could use a little action.

But he is so promiscuous. He is screwing them all and spreading a dis-ease.

mkkby's picture

My grandma has been dead a few years.  I wouldn't think he's that perverted, but with Bernanke you never know.

Bob's picture

It's the thought that counts--and you know he would if he could.

Better grandma gets screwed than my daughter

Nice avatar. I was wiping and smacking at my screen thinking there was a bug in it.

MsCreant's picture

Don't fool yourself, he's screwing them both, and your partner, and hey, you know your butts been sore too, fess up!

Hey wait a minute, hey, eeek! Stop that Hanke Panke Bernanke!

falak pema's picture

The question we all ask ourselves, whereas needless to say we give you the entire benefit of the doubt beforehand in our normally programmed and therefore gallant minds, is: is your butt worth the voyage into deep south USA...Please clarify this burning bush issue! Before Ben Bernanke gets to Hanke Panke you!

Grandma is already dead, so I guess its your daughter after all...

'The Day the USSA Died – September 11, 2001'

You entered a period of institutional terrorism and self inflicted political crisis. This spiral will lead  further into the clutches of a more centralized authoritarian form of government unless people like you, SmokeyQuinn, stand up to the junta of mercantilist and terrorist oligarchs that control and terrorize the country.

Do you want to relinquish your few remaining freedoms and liberties for the cloak of corporate fascist authoritarian central planning disguised as safety and security?

When will YOU confront the facts behind 9/11?

Or... will you continue to be a 9/11MORON ?

Jim Quinn's picture

Go back to the barn you nutjob.


DavidPierre's picture


Best consider how you respond! 

You will reveal much more than you may want to about yourself and how you conduct yourself on that filthy little blog ... .

Cui Bono !!!

9/11: Who Really Benefited? Fact and Not Fiction...

"Forget so-called conspiracy theories. Instead look at reality. Dare ask yourself who actually seems to have benefited from the 9-11 calamity. In light of the debt ceiling debates and the continuous corrupt politics as usual of Washington D.C., it is time for the American people, and individual states of this federation, to look at a troubling set of facts. It seems there were “several” beneficiaries of 9-11 that don’t exactly fit the story line we were constantly fed by the propaganda machine and mainstream media as to how to connect the dots."

Jim Quinn's picture

Please keep posting you nutjob so everyone can see you are crazier than a shithouse rat.

DavidPierre's picture


As the tenth year anniversary of open terrorist rule in the USSA approaches, I look forward to your special 9/11 article where you will show your true self as a celebrated 9/11Moron!

You, like a great, fat, bottom-feeding suckerfish, have swallowed the official government lies...

Hook...Line... and Sinker!

Hey Douche Penis......


How come you only show up around here to harass Jim Quinn?


Obsess much?

DavidPierre's picture

Hey!... Bowel Movement......

SmokeyQuinn has a long, well documented and sorid history of being a LIAR !

His moral distaste and contempt for the truth is well documented by his former webmaster on ZH, as well as on his blog.

You'll know the history of this man by just reading his obscene comments to any challenge of his moronic views.

It's Fight Club and SmokeyQuinn is my favorite punching bag.

Stupid much???



Jim Quinn's picture

It is better to let people think you are a dumbass than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Back to the barn you crazed lunatic. The sheep are getting lonely.


traderjoe's picture

Are you calling 9/11 Truthers nutjobs? Um, really? You think WTC7 came down from some minor fires?

toady's picture

The terrorists won.

Bin Ladin was right.

trav7777's picture

post hoc ergo prompter hoc...fallacy.  STFU

DavidPierre's picture


You, and all other 9/11MORONS, can go on over to and do a Bachmann on Quinn's, much discussed and often bragged about, 11 1/2 inch, Smokey

For along time he has lusted for your lively, liver lips, brilliant Latin witticisms and moronic 9/11 comments  ... his blog ... .

In fairness to the ChairCreature, he will not be able to keep those rates that low for that long, and probably knows better, himself. 

The Eurocalypse will keep our rates down, for awhile, whatever Bernanke does, as we are still by far the prettiest horse in the glue factory (well, aside from the Swiss, but that pony is too small to ride).
