TEOTWAWKI- This article is especially for those who doubt that the global elite wish to impose global taxes and a global currency on all of us. Once upon a time such notions were laughed at by the majority of the public. But not anymore. Now, top global organizations are coming right out and announcing that these are the things that they want. It is right there in black and white for anyone who wants to read it. The head of the IMF has come right out and said that he wants a global currency to be implemented. Both the IMF and the World Health Organization have openly announced that they want global taxes to be imposed as quickly as possible. Considering how powerful the IMF and the WHO are, it is time for everyone to sit up and take notice. These increasingly powerful international organizations are openly proclaiming that they want to start digging into our wallets. Alarm bells should be going off in your head about now. A global currency and global taxes would mean the end of the world as we know it for national sovereignty. But today most Americans are so apathetic that they don't care about anything. more

SHTF Plan- We’ve got a one way ticket to collapse, folks. It really doesn’t matter if we’re talking inflationary collapse or deflationary collapse. We’ve resigned ourselves to the understanding that the government cannot fix this problem even if they had the desire to do so (which they don’t). The end result is going to be a lot of people without jobs, money, food and any sort of plan or ability to improve their situation. A collapse of the magnitude we’re talking about is not something that will be over in a few weeks or months. We’re talking years, potentially decades. more

Guardian-Inflation has been running ahead of target through 2010 - CPI rose to 3.5% in January, 3% in February and 3.4% in March.

Israel National- Iran’s recently-concluded war games concentrated on preparations to block the Persian Gulf and wreck Western economies in the event that the United Nations Security Council tries to place harsh sanctions against it.
Forty percent of the world’s oil and gas sails through the Persian Gulf, and an Iranian blockade would cause an inflationary spike in energy prices and a fuel shortage that could cause catastrophe for the West, which is dependent on Iranian crude to fuel their gas-hungry economies. more

The Coming Depression- The pace and severity of financial crises has taken an ominous turn for the worse. Over the past 30 years, a crisis has occurred, on average, every three years. Yet, now, only 18 months after the meltdown of late 2008, Europe’s sovereign debt crisis has hit with full force. With one crisis seemingly begetting another, and the fuse between crises now getting shorter and shorter, the world economy is on a very treacherous course. more

Of Two Minds- That the Savior State appeared sustainable was an accidental coincidence of cheap oil and favorable demographics. The notion that a central government could provide cradle-to-grave care for all its citizenry was only possible when the worker-to-retiree/recipient was on the order of 10-to-1 or 5-to-1. Now that it is effectively 2-to-1 in most of the developed world, the demographics have turned decidedly unfavorable. more

The Angry Exile, ʇuǝpuodsǝɹɹoɔ uʍop ǝpısdn. - In our sensible moments we would acknowledge that this government or any government for that matter are not going to solve our problems for us. Let’s face facts, no government can or should. Governments can’t raise our children and we wouldn’t want them to. Small businesses must sink or swim on their own trade. If they can’t get by without another government hand out, they shouldn’t be in business at all. more
