Conspiracy Rants and Discussions
>Bulgaria??? What are you doing there??
It all started innocently with
but then that somehow derailed so now I am in the village in a pension waiting for another friend to get back fromChinaJan 5 so that i can help him reconstruct HIS house. Got a year contract for internet mobile so plan to stay here for a while and cruise up theBlack Seaonce it gets cold.
Ya, we are in for a world of hurt here in the US…. You are completely correct that the US has pissed away our global advantage. China is the new global superpower, just most don’t see it yet. They will when the US is mired in inflation and stagnation…..
On the other hand its only inevitable. TheUSconsumer is rich, 5% of the world’s population consuming 25% of its resources, rich for various reasons, such as cheap gas and great agriculture they stole from the “Indians”, and not having to suffer in the middle of two world wars. By spending all its wealth it has essentially transferred it to the rest of the world and driven the world economy for a long time. Advanced credit markets have inflated wealth further, and nowAmericaowes the world while the rest of the world owns a lot ofAmerica. Like a rock that drops into a pond and the waves hit the shore and come back and everyone is the same again. Anyway, it’s better for the world for it to be a balance between three (Europe Asia andAmericas) rather than one or two. So no harm done really. But I guess the infrastructure problem in theUSis going to be a real thorn, with the increasing push towards green and all that.
I expect that there will be civil unrest here soon… Unemployment is at 10.2 % (real unemployemt is proballly more like 14%)…..
Yah, could be unrest, but I think Americans will just realise the glory days are declining and that they can’t really do anything about it. They’re still gonna be wealthy, but the rest of the world will be catching up.
I like how the Bulgarians did it. When the financial boom was going all sorts of retarded hotels were popping out. Now they’re ghosts on the hillsides and all the skilled construction workers took the money they were carefully saving during the boom, and since they’re out of work now, they’re all reconstructing their own houses. So it actually looks like a construction boom here!
just read that Lloyds, the oldest insurance company in the world, has just pulled out all its assets in European banks. The French financial system is also about to collapse, and if all that happens it will be a big dominoe effect, ending with the collapse of the US dollar, tons of riots and hopefully a revolution there, and the demise of currencies which, for too long, have left the gold standard and have been based on nothing other than fluff. I have decided to spend some money and horde a pile of rice etc. here at the foundation I am staying at. A safe retreat if all goes to shit. I suggest you stock up on rice. Think we are getting close to the very end.
yeah right, by the time a stodgy, huge, traditional institution like Lloyds Bank figures it out the situation has already turned. We’re headed for a bounce. The unbelievable rate of growth in the developing world slowed slightly in 2Q and 3Q this year, but commodity buying is still going on at a breakneck pace, as is building. The double-digit GDP growth in China is about to be eclipsed by India, which has a much larger existing middle-class and is a recognized democracy. All you need is a few million extra people buying toilet paper and cell phones and you’d be amazed what that is going to do to the global economy. This is a sea change. Once people have access to toilet paper for the first time ever, they don’t go back. Look at Ireland, they were the worst-off a year ago and they’re already paying their huge debt. These large countries are just incredibly slow to move; no politician wants to be the one to say “We’re raising taxes” or “We’re cutting services”. Now they are all doing it. France is not in real danger of collapsing, Greece is. And Italy currently teeters on the brink. Its inevitable, and I’ve been saying it for a couple of years: the first world is going to see a reduction in the standard of living. What does that mean? One less big-screen TV, one more crappy job that usually they make the Mexican’s take. Meanwhile the incremental improvements to standard of living in the emerging markets is going to be a HUGE boom. Corporations around the world are cash-rich and have been for over a year. No one is spending money because they keep seeing all this Wah Wah Wah about Greece and Portugal. They’re not investing and not hiring right now which is exactly what they should be doing as costs are low and people are willing to take jobs at low pay. This spring I stocked up on coffee and tea, the only two things that I really want to have that don’t grow here. Other than that I can get everything I really need locally sourced, mostly from the Fraser Valley. Its amazing how much food value my one tiny plot in the front garden can grow in a year. More than a total economic meltdown, I worry about this extreme weather and what it will mean in terms of using rapidly diminishing emergency funds. The hurricanes and floods in the US this season cost several billion dollars. That doesn’t even mention Pakistan, Australia (they had the triple-whammy, oh boy. Luckily they’re pretty rich right now as a country and have guaranteed customers for most of their goods), and other regions of the southern hemisphere that are suffering increasingly more frequent and more severe weather patterns.
Actually read yesterday that some major Belgian/French bank needed to be bailed out, so it does seem to be spreading. Changed my mind about the rice hoard at the moment cause don’t wanna stay here. Saturday will head south, stop at one or two places I have lined up, then dive intoMalaysia, where it is easier to stay long term. Don’t like dealing with bureaucracy and almost feel like they don’t really want me here, but the people are great, as almost anywhere once you get past the border.
Speaking of weather patterns apparently there was a big flood in bangkok. I thought it was normal forAsiawhen I was looking below out of the skytrain. Supposed to be safer where I am, but it sure rained a shitload this morning. k
heydo, just read a good article yesterday that I think give a good synopsis of the type of stuff that’s going on:
With lots of references and in proper journalistic style, instead of seeming like conspiracy ranting. This is simply the stuff which would never get reported in the mainstream media, because something like 95% of that is in very few hands (they say six) and the power elite are all in bed with each other screwing over the rest of humanity, so they feed us what they want to feed us. You can try tuning in sometime to alzazeera or however its spelt, or democracynow.org. They both have video streams. The first one was bombed a few times by the Americans and they are trying to get into theUS market. Anyway, there are a lot of criminals at the top which need to be answered to and I really hope a major and tangible revolution will sweep the world, otherwise we are doomed, according to the agenda they have in mind for us. Most people simply do not want to believe any of this because they would have to believe that almost everything they have believed in for most of their lives is sort of a farce, or it’s so far fetched its like being poked in one’s matrix comfy bathtub and told to take the red pill. But it also makes sense that the power elite will always want to preserve their power, and consolidate it further, and use their wealth to secure that. Hence industry buys into media and wines and dines military generals and politicians, who get all their funding from the corporations. This is not democracy at all. Two choices and business as usual, no matter who is voted in. Anyway, hope these revolts lead to something, but I’m rather skeptical.
The house is sold. very poorly but sold. so this agony is over. another one will start soon but today I feel free. All of you have a good day and keep loving each other.
That’s fantastic, glad you got that off your shoulders and can relax more now. Try to move forward without piling up the obligations and pushing things to the hilt all the time. Over the last few years I found it much less stressful to cut down costs than try to increase income to cover my regular costs. Now I’m down to about 1.25 Euro a day (excluding any alcohol I may buy), which covers one coffee at this hotel I have to boat 7km to every day in order to get internet. Hopefully it wont take long to get internet to the island, as I’d like to stay there at least a couple of months.
Did some more reading last night and looks like the commercial real estate market is ready to pop at some point, if it has not already, and then the next and final bubble will be the bailout bubble, where governments around the world are printing money, which is no longer based on gold, and that will apparently the biggest bubble of them all, after which it will not be possible to spend our way out of a depression and we will enter the biggest depression of history. So make sure to squirrel some nuts under a blanket, cause I think it’s really gonna get bad soonish. Enjoy your peace now.
I’m reading a book on gold/silver investing. I think both metals will still go up but the question is by how much. It’s true that the US has been printing way too much money for too long and soon we won’t be able to control inflation any longer. Right now i’m trying to figure out when inflation will really hit because that’s when the masses will panic and start buying gold and silver, driving prices further up. I’m also trying to figure out what impact inflation will have on my credit card and student loan debt. Probably not good… But still, doing what I can to prepare…becoming much more educated now on what’s really been going on for the past 50-100 years with world economies and just how much the sh**’s going to hit the fan…looking at all the debt the US has amassed, especially with the recent bailouts and stimulus packages, plus the unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare, it’s really scary!
yah, scary indeed. Really cool you are reading up on this cause I find the biggest problem is that most people don’t bother and are content with their 30 minutes of propaganda “news” every day. I myself bought into that for most of my life, but now that I’ve been reading so much from independent sources what I’m learning is nothing short of shocking. Here is a brief spill. I know it sounds crazy but it will hopefully plant a seed of curiosity and you will find out yourself. I’ve been reading/watching about this from many sources. Apparently theUSis not heven a country but a corporation created by the Rothchild’s ofEngland. The Federal Reserve is a private corporation which prints money and charges interest to theUStax payers. Kennedy tried to stop this and look what happened to him. The Rothchilds, which control roughly half the world’s wealth, own/run the central bank in every country except three:North Korea,IranandLibya(although the latter may have been recently taken care of). Apparently the IRS is also a private company. The mainstream media (about 96% of media) is run by about 6 people and they are certainly all in bed with the politicians and industrials/military to maintain power in the hands of the elite. Democracy is an utter joke. Communist Russia also had two parties to choose from every four years. Almost everyUSpresident was/is a member of Skull and Bones, which is a masonic lodge. This is absolutely no coincidence. I can go on and on, and it sounds absurdly unbelievable to anyone who has been buying into any of the sham that comes out of main media. I’ve attached a pretty interesting article I’ve read recently that explains a lot, and what we as humanity should move towards at this juncture in time. But I fear that the power elite will pull another false flag like 911, but even worse, to maintain its power. Send us all off to WW3. Google “The third tower” and you should read about building 7 and what a sham 911 is all about.
Concerning gold, don’t forget about the Chinese and the Indians. A growing middle class that will overtakeAmerica. The Chinese government is now actively getting its population to buy gold cause they want to pull the carpet from under the dollar as a reserve currency. I think your loans are safe cause they are going to go down the toilet together with the dollar and everyone’s retirement savings. The shit is really gonna hit hard in theUSI fear. Right now I’m up in the mountains inThailand, helping a village hook up to solar electricity. Pretty cool. Rice harvest recently so am well stocked up on food. Am pretty safe here unless they start dropping bombs, WW3 starts (the US/Pakistan thing is starting to get out of control andRussiajust armedSyriaagainst Nato bombing), or they drop a virus vile at a few of the major airports. I think this Mayan calendar thing has something to it, but it’s not the end of the world but the beginning of a new era for humanity. Unfortunately I think that Revelations may have to come true and it will not be pretty at all.
Anyway, the trick apparently is not to live in fear because of all this (although I find the reading fascinating) but to meditate and spread energy of love, to tip the scales. The power elite use fear to control us and it’s to their advantage if riots break out in the streets. Lots to talk about. Would be fun to smoke a doobie with ya and gab for a while!
Considering that the Federal Reserve is a private corporation successfully raping the American taxpayer by charging interest on money it does not even print (other companies are farmed out that work), where its owners and other 1% buddies control much of media and industry, it is no wonder they put “In God we trust” on the dollar, for how else could they pull this off without a blind population so easily willing to assume that their government, the media and companies are acting in their best interest?
Best perhaps is just escape the rat race and travel like a goof.
