There's No Painless Way Out

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Uncle Sam's bills of almost $4tn per year relative to his income of just over $2tn means that he does what most American's do - he borrows money - and it is this simple fact that underpins the reasoning that there is no painless way out of the mountain of debt that we have amassed over the last few decades. While none of this is new, the straightforward nature of this video's message makes it hard to argue, from anything other than an ivory tower, that this supposed self-sustaining print-and/or-borrow-fest can go on forever. Paying off your mortgage with your credit card remains the clearest analogy of what is occurring and while the Mutually Assured Destruction case is made again and again for why the analogous credit-card-providers will never halt our limit, it seems increasingly clear that the fiat money fiasco has switched regimes to chaos rather than the apparent nominal calmness of the great moderation.

Suicide is painless -- M*A*S*H.

HD's picture

Great reference mate. Makes me feel old. Damn old.

 

Through early morning fog I see
visions of the things to be
the pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see...

[chorus]:

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.

I try to find a way to make
all our little joys relate
without that ever-present hate
but now I know that it's too late, and...

[Chorus]

The game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna lose it anyway
The losing card I'll someday lay
so this is all I have to say.

[Chorus]

The only way to win is cheat
And lay it down before I'm beat
and to another give my seat
for that's the only painless feat.

[Chorus]

MASH
The sword of time will pierce our skins
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger...watch it grin, but...

[Chorus]

A brave man once requested me
to answer questions that are key
'is it to be or not to be'
and I replied 'oh why ask me?'

'Cause suicide is painless
it brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.
...and you can do the same thing if you choose.

No, because upon hearing the words Federal Reserve, your average American's eyes begin to glaze over.  Add a long word like "derivative" into the mix, and you've lost them just like that.  Start talking about "shadow banking" or "toxic assets" and you'd have a comatose patient on your hands.

No, this video is perfect, even for my nearly braindead co-workers.  No fervent voice rising in pitch to emphasize points, no flashy explosions or sensationalist graphics.  Just simple, straightforward, and easily understandable.  And the best part is that it leads the viewer to the direct conclusion that a global financial collapse is unavoidable, lets that point sink in, and then allows the viewer to draw his or her own conclusions.

Paying your mortgage with your credit card?! Shit, how about not paying your mortgage at all and just staying put for free. Its the latest rage, and more and more people are hopping on the gravy train. The jails are full, the system is imploding, and Homeland Security hasn't got their 450 million hollowpoints order filled yet, so you might as well take your mortgage money, fill the garage up with beer and wait for the NFL to come around again.

There is no painless way out? I think/know there is, but the problem is SOME will endure pain. Its called a jubilee, and it sucks if you still have money and power to lose. Hence the reason its anathema to tptb. Theyve been trying to have a jubilee for the banksters and corpos for several years bow, but socially and politically this can only go on for so long. A jubilee is coming, it cant be avoided. You can call it a reset or default or whatever, but it is coming without doubt. Debts that cant be paid, wont be. The real question is what comes after.

Iceland's issues were a rounding error in the grand scheme of things.  And the issues were actually caused by the banks so the Iceland government could legitimately be outraged.  Unfortunately the banks have long memories and I'm sure there is a Fuck You moment in store for Iceland at some point in the future. 

In the US the problem is a collusion of the US government and the banks.  The banks let the US government keep writing checks and the US government lets the banks stuff their pockets right from the dollar printing presses.  When it turns ugly the US government will show the American people who they really work for.

You get out of debt by figuring out how you go into debt in the first place.  About 1/3 of the deficit is a result of the Bush Tax Cuts; another 1/3 was caused by an increase in unfunded spending and mandates (part D medicare, endless wars, creating bloated and worthless bureacracies such as the dept of Homeland Defense, bailouts to banks, etc.); the final 1/3 is caused by reduced tax revenues from less people working, interest income, and capital gains during this ongoing recesion.

With even a shred of political will, two thirds of the deficit could be quickly reduced by returning to 2000 tax rates and reducing spending levels.  Lowering the unemployment rate is going to take time.   Governmental or personal debt is not necessarily bad, only a question of whether the borrowed funds were invested wisely or just pissed away.

Unfortunately, the individuals who have benefited the most from the policies of the last decade also hold the reins of power.  Not too optimistic about this.

Only 2 people in my circle of family, friends and co-workers understand this. 

The rest are oblivious and don't want to talk about it, or understand it and don't want to acknowledge it.

Am amazed by the paycheck-to-paycheck people I know who just keep on buying stuff they want but don't need.

That's one of the clearest vids for the layman I've seen. We really are screwed no matter what because our politicians won't bite te bullet and call for austerity. About the only way out for the little guy is to try and 'Go Galt' http://www.futurnamics.com/goinggalt.php

I wonder how many people who, as unborn babies, were saved by Pro-Life influence, end up voting, as adults, for those who are Pro-Abortion?  I wonder if they were ever told by their mothers how close she came to killing them, or having them killed? 

Why ask?  Well, a post above mentioned that "It's a cardholder, not a choice."  Clever.  But it made me wonder.  It would be very interesting to know if those saved from abortion end up supporting abortion and, if they do, why they do.  Sort of a "I've got mine, so screw you" mentality.  Unless, of course, mom never told them they were within minutes or hours of getting sucked or cut out of the womb.
