"The Decade of EPIC Begins"
balance the stste budget on the backs of 7000 millionaires...that is what is wrong with this country...never cut spending and raise taxes on the producers,whatever name you want to call them usually its the rich...trash all tax laws and have a 5% flat tax on only consumption of products...plenty of revenue at local state and federal level..but this stops their POWER...and we can't have that now can we...
Yup, a flat tax, regressive, of course.The gov. makes perfect sense...speaks better than Obama.70% of the U.S. debt was gifted to us by Republicans... they are destroyers. They cloak themselves in the Bible, but I think Jesus would puke over their actions.

Even when the SHTF, we'll "eventually" get through it. If people (around the world) are semi-intelligent, they will still see AmeriKa as the beacon of light compared to where they live. I do think the Chinese will take advantage big time when our fiat collapses, and they'll move quick because the yuan will appreciate. So, I think English will still dominate. But, you being in L.A., a little bit of both Spanish and Mandarin could help you. IMHO, of course.
It's so strange watching the perpetual growth machine run in reverse. People can't deal with it, so scapegoating, bargaining, and outright lying to themselves becomes the norm. Once a person come to grips with the reality of oil depletion, they can handle with the situation much more effectively. This is true whether peak oil is some contrived scheme by the ruling elites, or a geologic reality. The outcome will be the same. Less human population and development, along with a declining standard of living within oil intensive economies such as the US. The author Rob Kirby has done great work explaining how the ESF and their henchmen manipulate PM prices and interest rates down through derivative contracts. This further confuses traders who begin to believe that fiat is invincible. We will have another oil shock induced recession/depression at some point, the SPR release scam was just a primitive attempt to kick that oil can into the future. Pretty stupid. Any tea tard harboring illusions about austerity bridging the US budget gap is delusional. Ain't gonna happen. As long as readers have protected themselves with phys, they should welcome any government programs that will keep the hip hop generation out of their hood.
@il - Speaking of Homeland and Hip Hop... heres a quote from Mumia Abu Jamal..."To think about the origins of hip hop in this culture and also about homeland security is to see that there are at the very least two worlds in America. One of the well-to-do and the struggling. For if ever there was the absence of homeland security it is seen in the gritty roots of hip hop. For the music arises from a generation that feels with some justice that they have been betrayed by those who came before them. That they are at best tolerated in schools, feared on the streets, and almost inevitably destined for the hell holes of prison. They grew up hungry, hated and unloved. And this is the psychic fuel that seems to generate the anger that seems endemic in much of the music and poetry. One senses very little hope above the personal goals of wealth and the climb above the pit of poverty. In the broader society the opposite is true, for here more than any place on earth wealth is more wide spread and so bountiful. What passes for the middle class in America could pass for the upper class in most of the rest of the world. They're very opulent and relative wealth makes the insecure. And homeland security is a governmental phrase that is as oxymoronic, as crazy as saying military intelligence, or the U.S Department of Justice. They're just words that have very little relationship to reality. And do you feel safer now? Do you think you will anytime soon? Do you think duck tape and Kleenex and color codes will make you safer? From Death row this is Mumia Abu Jamal"
This is important to read. I now realize the motivation behind all this control in money, medical, water and food.....Its called de-population - because the actual bubble we are in in the population growth...http://sgtreport.com/2011/07/red-alert-obama-signs-execuctive-order-13575-rural-councils-this-is-agenda-21/
One last note.That is in fact the reason why the Elite is going to crash the fiat system and thus why hyperinflation is in the plan. You only need to read up about life in Zimbabwe and Germany when that happened. Starvation.We are in fact in WW3 already - its just in camouflage.
mrttt63: you nailed it
BELIEVE me, I am no Republican knee padder, but this crap the Demorats spew (class warfare) makes me so pissed I feel my core temperature go up a degree or two. Does someone who is rich/well off make you poorer? No. YOU make you poorer (or richer). When you drive through a "well to do" part of your county, did those people break into your house and take your stuff? No. If they had more money taken from them, would that benefit you? Would that make your life better? Would that make you richer? Would that make you happier? Would you then be satisfied? No. People like this g.d. governor wants to punish people that come here on a regular basis--that is, when our goals are reached becoming well off. Us stacking phyzz, bouncing ideas off each other (like shorting corn, but not for too much longer), etc. and we earn some "extra" money, on our backs. Who the hell is the government to tell us we make too much or we have to give back? Give back to what? So they can have marble floors in their offices? People falling for this class warfare crap are sad. And, BTW, there may be some people that will want to shoot back about big this and big that, to which I say: blah, blah, blah. You could be big some day if you educate yourself with successful people and get off your ass.
To add on to my rant (especially people I may have angered)...does that fiat know your situation? Does it know you're American? African American? Mexican? British? Old? Young? Gay? Straight? Nope...that stuff goes to the people that WORKED FOR IT.
So who the hell defines fair, governor? did you take a salary cut? Did the teacher unions start paying for their own friggin pensions yet? How about the bennies for the legislators? Any cuts there? Any unnecessary programs canceled, like the ones that help control what farmers can grow or control what kind of milk dairy farmers can market? Why not just admit that you dummies in the government spent money you did not have to buy votes - and now that the party is over and you have to face friggin' reality, all you can come up with is "tax the rich." What an asshole. Ignorant dumb stupid asshole. Like most of the Minnesotans. And Americans, for that matter. There used to be a time when feeding at the public trough was shameful. Now its a race to see who can eat the most the fastest. We're beyond saving, there is no more point of return, we've blown it. And I LOVE to see Minnesota "suffer" so much. Hell, three years ago they were down here in Florida buying real estate on the cheap, bragging about how good life is in Minnesota. Screw 'em, beginning with the dumb ass governor and work your way down.Remember, besides phyzz, food, water, be sure to have plenty of AWG repellant. And kill the politicians, lawyers, and accountants first. Then we might not have to kill anyone else.
simple math:vote for me and I will give youa job (promise)a house ( sec 8 )food stampshealth carefree educationmake you feel bettergive you all the information you need to succeed if you keep voting for me52% of America is on this wagon...you do the math.......
Either this guy is trying another hand of B/S class warfare or he can't count. He can't accept a Minnesota without all his Blah blah blah because "millionaires" won't pay $1.00 more. IRS says there are "7,700 Millionaires" in Mn. What ya gettin' for $7,700? I think he wants MUCH more than a buck. They tried it in NY and a good portion of the "rich" left the state. No net increase in revenue. Looks like the Progressive Socialists are running out of our money.
