    More Signs That the Great Collapse Is Upon Us: “Has The Date Been Set?”

    breaking-point

    The system is breaking apart as we speak.

    Retail has taken a brutal pounding over the last several years, and an epidemic of closing stores continues. Jobs have never picked up, despite the optimism. The flaws of the larger economy are compounding, and what has already been for several years a “recession” may soon crumble into an outright great “depression.”

    As the X22 Report discusses, the stress points are all there, and absolute destruction is looming over the United States, and the global economy in general. The music has already stopped in terms of Federal Reserve stimulus money; as interest rates soar, the debt implosion becomes little more than a matter of time.

    No man knows the day, but it is clear enough that something big is happening.

    Beware of the bubbles popping… and the rest of the fallout.

    “The situation right now is a disaster, and people are going to be really hurt by it. Now, Trump gave his speech to Congress and he said some very interesting things in the speech. And this gives us some type of indicator on how well the economy is doing. The first one he said was 94 million Americans are out of the labor force… 43 million are living in poverty. 43 million Americans are on food stamps. More than 1 in 5 people in their prime working years are not working. We have the worst financial recovery in 65 years – actually, it’s not really a recovery; it’s a manipulation; it’s an illusion to make you think we’ve recovered.”

    “In the last eight years, the past administration has put on more debt than nearly all other U.S. presidents combined. We lost more than 1/4 of our manufacturing jobs since NAFTA was approved. We lost 60,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our trade deficit with the world last year was nearly $800 billion; and Obamacare premiums nationwide have increased by double digits. We spend trillions and trillions of dollars over seas, and we didn’t do anything here in the United States for the infrastructure, and that’s why things are falling apart.”

    “He’s letting the country know that the economy is a disaster, that the economy is collapsing… a complete disaster.”

    As many experts have pointed out, President Trump cannot avoid the debt crisis. For starters, the U.S. government debt ceiling deal expires at the end of March – more debt must be approved, or budgets altered.

    But beyond that, there is a palpable sense that another big event is coming… with a lot of talk about the second half of 2017. Has a date been set?

      This is not a real surprise at all, I’m afraid to say. the past 8 years have been a huge LIE, basically a horse & pony show of sorts – have yourself prepared or. . .

        “We have the worst financial recovery in 65 years – actually, it’s not really a recovery; it’s a manipulation; it’s an illusion to make you think we’ve recovered.”

        I agree and that gives me the THOUGHT that if we have never recovered, “How low can we go?” when there is a safety net of spending that continues no matter what; and pretty much marks where the masses are lounging.

        The mainstream economy is limping along and has been for a long time. The markets are way ahead of EARNINGS, so I expect a major correction of say 30% or more, but would that have a corresponding negative impact upon the “economy” when the economy is smoke and mirrors anyway?

        Maybe a quick correction and a quick reset implementing TRUMP’S economic plan. Just a THOUGHT EXPERIMENT because capital flight from Europe will flood US equity markets when the EU falls apart, just as Chinese flight money has flooded real estate in Canada and elsewhere.

        Infrastructure spending will put money back into the pockets of small businesses and the MIDDLE CLASS. Until then we will likely limp along. 🙂

        • Nuke em Duke says:

          Where will Trump get the money to spend on infrastructure?
          Ahhhhh…….The Indespensible Nation!!!
          Just conjure it out of thin air……or……blow apart another third world nation and take the resources.
          Media will look after the rest…….and your football game, beer and twinkies will still be right there for ya too.
          God Bless Amer…..oops……getting carried away I was.

          • Kevin2 says:

            “blow apart another third world nation and take the resources.”

            Actually blowing apart 3rd world nations has cost the USA a massive amount of money. If one looks at US Foreign Policy from a results perspective it appears that the goal is to destroy the governments of nations with energy resources and or energy transportation geographic location. The resulting chaos justifies a continued military presence while the absence of a stable government ensures no cohesive political threat. If the bankers want their energy sold exclusively in US dollars that happens without question. If by some chance any political group attempts to instill a populist government its overthrown very easily.

            The wars are not being fought for the US but rather for the globalist international business financiers. While you are suspect of President Trump there is absolutely no doubt that Hillary Clintons loyalties lay with them.

            • Nuke em Duke says:

              Fair assessment K2….and I much prefer Trump than Killary.
              However, if the US would just “pack up and go home”, the planet and it’s people would be much better off.

        • The debt bubble is global and massive.

      • Arizona says:

        THE LORD CALLED TRUMP …TEMPORY FILLER,watch the SKY,and you’ll see the BIG EVENT COMING..and IF you live on the coast MOVE NOW..or die…..

      Bush dug the grave. Obama put the nails in the coffin. Truth is we have been running on
      vapors for a long time. Thank you NWO.

      • ChickenHawk says:

        The grave was already dug long before Bush. It just got a lot deeper under Clinton and his NAFTA debacle.

      • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

        Joey, the coffin CAN be pried open and that’s what Trump’s people are working on now.

      • JustMe says:

        Woodrow Wilson dug the grave. FDR put America in the coffin…

      • Bigbluedrew says:

        Actually Ronald Reagan started the giant debt snowball down the hill. He inherited a national debt of about 990 billion and ballooned it to a whopping 2.2 Trillion. He also allowed Congress for the first time to begin robbing the Social Security Trust Fund which was fairly healthy and robust when he took office, each President there after has expanded on his model greatly. This has been a long time in the making folks. Our political class has been kicking an ever larger can down the road for nearly 30 years. The “debt model” of government is so ingrained in our political system there really is no way to reverse it, this is especially true since a MAJORITY of our citizens now view government entitlements as “rights”. Couple that with an out of control health care system and an all powerful defense establishment and there is simply no politically palatable solution to our economic train wreck. I am friends with an ex congressman from Tennessee named John Tanner. We have fished together many times, and he gave me a sobering take on the the mind set of most Congressmen. They know the system is unsustainable in its current form. They also know that the kind of draconian changes necessary to fix it are unachievable given the psychology of most of our citizens. He explained that most of his colleagues simply roll along and hope the house of cards that is our economy doesn’t collapse while they are still in office since they really can’t fix it anyway, why worry about what you can’t change. We are just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

        • Butch says:

          @bbd…get your facts straight, It was LBJ and the democrats who stole the SS funds, deposited the SS withholding into the general fund….replaced the money with worthless SS bonds and spent every penny…. You are either a troll or a moron, or both. Butch

          • gumply says:

            Amen to that. Johnson almost croaked when he saw the figures backing up SS. That’s when he came up with the, “Great Society.” At that time there were only a few ways you could tap into your SS funds. When he got through there were about 50 or so and each President in turn after that added to that #. Now you get them when you illegally get into the country and you actually get more than if you are a citizen. If your a muslim with a couple of wives each wife can get them along with their children. It really ticks me off when people complain about SS draining our finances. Never would have happened if the lying, traitorous Presidents have kept their hands off it. They are still using it for all kinds of reasons except what it was designed for, which is namely, for the person that worked and I underline work for someone and paid into your account for you to draw on. Not your wife, kids, ex wives, children who lost a parent and on and on it goes including all ex-wives in case you were married three or four times. I worked at a hospital and I had access to this info and the last time I checked which was a lease 21 years ago as I am 81 now there were about 40 ways to claim on someone else’s funds. Johnson wasn’t only an adulterer and a pervert he was as crooked as the day is long.

          • Bigbluedrew says:

            Butch I suggest you do a little reading on the Social Security Ammendments of 1983, which Reagan pushed through Congress. His solution to “save” Social Security included raising the Social Security payroll tax ostensibly to increase the viability of the fund. Funny thing is not a dime of the billions it raised ever made into the fund, go figure. I liked Reagan , voted for him twice. That said the idea that government shrunk during his watch is horse shit. It expanded dramatically, and every President since except Oshitstain doodled down on that growth. Obunghole quadrupled it and now we are where we are, as far as me being a troll, if you can’t handle an objective opinion piss off and die.

    3. Anonymous says:

      I’ve been hearing about catastrophe coming in the first half, the next half, next quarter, next year and on and on for way too long to put any credibility in those making such statements.

      Predict something often enough and long enough and eventually you will be right since everything goes through up and down cycles and people eventually repeat history, but predicting when is futile.

      • buttcrackofdoom says:

        there aint no way to know WHEN, but the MATH DOES say it HAS to happen….soon. math IS law, you know. hope y’all are prepped for it.

        • Anonymous says:

          That “soon” thing has to be questioned.

          People were thinking and claiming “soon” back during the Clinton administration.

          No one ever considered all the things that could be done to prevent it then, and aren’t considering them now.

          Could happen next month, or could happen 30 years from now, depending on what is done between now and then to stave it off.

          Or it might not happen at all if we move smoothly into a world system and start over gracefully without needing a crisis to get it instituted.

          See it the way you see it and prepare for the worst you see to insure you do the best you can if you turn out right. You’ll come out ahead that way even if nothing happens during your remaining lifetime.

        you are so right…..I’m 75 & since in high school have been hearing about the ‘next great depression’….the falling value of real estate, and on and on……so it’s not all that scary for me…it’s the old ‘drumbeat’ thing……over and over and over…..if it happens, you do what you can…….me? I’m enjoying my retirement; if the bottom falls out, I can look back on many good times!!! lol…..

    4. apache54 says:

      Trump is a business man and it will be interesting to see how he plans to tackle the debt issue, there are several ways, but ALL of them are and or will cause lots of problems!! personaly i see RESET is the only viable way out!! BUT you must STOP the banksters from getting there hands on more properties BEFORE it happens!! and also eleminate the federal reserve !!

      • Walter says:

        The prescription to save this country is as follows:

        -Abolish the unconstitutional, criminal Federal Reserve
        -Nullify all U.S. Debt
        -Abolish all Welfare for able bodied Americans
        -Means test Social Security and make it voluntary
        -Realize the only thing we are “entitled” to is work!

        • Anonymous says:

          -Abolish the unconstitutional, criminal Federal Reserve
          That requires an act of Congress, and that means it isn’t going to happen unless replaced by something else just as bad.

          -Nullify all U.S. Debt
          Our money is debt, nullify it and we have no money. Including your bank account and other financial balances.

          -Abolish all Welfare for able bodied Americans
          That means we need enough jobs to employ everyone, and the trend is in reducing the number of jobs needed by industry, not increasing them. Would you create them as, maybe, government jobs?

          -Means test Social Security and make it voluntary
          That causes the system to fail unless it is phased in over a number of decades. There will be no high earners that pay in more than they receive volunteering to participate in it resulting in new taxes being needed to support it.

          Gotta come up with solutions to those problems first, and I doubt that would be possible in today’s America.

          • Kevin2 says:

            1 “-Abolish the unconstitutional, criminal Federal Reserve”
            Going back to Constitutional money would work.

            2 “Nullify all U.S. Debt”
            Not if you work it in conjunction with #1

            3. “Abolish all Welfare for able bodied Americans”
            The absence of a private sector job being available presents one of two alternatives.
            A. Civil disorder on a massive scale as “desperate people do desperate things”. People will not sit by peacefully and starve.
            B. Some type of CCC work

            4. “Means test Social Security and make it voluntary”
            This has no quick fix as those who are in the system and too old to “catch up” in a new system in SS absence need to be grandfathered on a graduated scale. This will take two or more decades to transition from.

        • Bigbluedrew says:

          Try that and see how long you stay in office or even ALIVE for that matter.

        • lewis says:

          You forgot the police they are the communist enforcers. Abolition of ownership #1. 2 heavy progressive income tax. Controle of communication, labor, transportation, education, agriculture, debased money (federal reserve notes) … Not true you say! I GUESS YOU WENT TO STATE SCHOOL, IF YOU DONT KNOW THE DIFFERNCE BETWEEN RIGHT OF WAY AND LICENSE -PRIVILAGE. Are you a UNITED STATES citizen or a citizen of “the united States of America”? Obama and his whole clan are COMMUNIST TRAITORS. All that supported them by their vote are accessoires and principals. Obama tried to transform AMERICA into a middle eastern cespool of middle eastern african Muslim hell. I have seen nothing from blacklives matter but criminal insanity. Quit funding their cell phones and food stamps and they will evaporate in time. Quit destroying value buy squandering resources on socialism’s comunist snowflake twinkie DEMOCRATIC COMMUNISTS, who are so stupid they think the $ 10,000,000,000,000. more debt Obama gave them will be paid by some one else. They got free cell phones while he gave billions away at their expense to Kenia, Iran, Muslim terrorists and Hitlereys BOCO HARAMI BOYS. OBAMA IS HALF WHITE STUPIDOS HES JUST SO FULL OF SHIT HE LOOKS HE DOES NOT LOOK IT.

        A drop in Silver is just another opportunity to buy on the dips. Silver is still up 18.01% over last year at this time. I still want to buy a few more hundred ounces. Get it when you can.

        Retail is Total BS. Way over priced goods. I had a guy a few weeks back tell me he went to a thrift shop and bought a hand full of shirts for .25 Cents each. He was wearing one that was a pretty nice dress shirt. So the retail clothing bubble is popping in a natural state. Hell ever look in a woman’s closet? They have 5 lifetimes worth of clothes and shoes in their closets, many still never worn with the tags still on them.

        So I too have dug out t-shirts and I have enough clothes to last me the rest of my life. About the only clothes I will need to buy are socks and under where. And maybe a few sets of blue jeans and some shoes and boots that I wear every day. I have dress clothes, more than I need. So why would I go waste spending $30 on another shirt. I would rather spend it on food and necessities. Clothing Retail Bubble has popped, so let the clothes were out in a decade and maybe retail clothing will then make comeback. This is just a natural cycle of supply and demand, not an economic collapse. Retail clothing needs to go find other products people can use and demand. This is a failure in management to recognize trends, not an economic collapse. so pay attention to the difference between propaganda. Kodak film sales are down too and out, why? The innovation replacement by the digital camera, that’s why.

          Start making Buggy Whips again, they will be in high demand when all SHTF. Got your “Black-Smithing” tools, Anvil, and heat coal fired oven, ready to make horse shoes?

          I hit a big root yesterday when on my John Deer Riding lawn mower, and bent one of the blades. No problem, got the 15/16th inch wrench out, put the tractor on a lift, removed both blades, straitened the blade back into place in a vise, then used my new metal filed and hand filed them both sharp, looking new again. Reassembled and on my way.

          Do you have tools to fix your own equipment? Priceless in SHTF. A set of files to keep all your tools sharp, from shovels to axes, hoes to lawn mower blades. I would rather use hand files to sharpen the blades than a wheel grinder..

      • Yeah, right says:

        Yeah, he’s a businessman. And he surrounded himself with more businessmen. Trump’s idea (not really his idea) is more spending. Whether is to keep all the parasites attached to the MIC paid, keeping all the government parasites that he said that he was going to get rid of paid, or building infrastructure. Infrastructure for what? So then they can hire more affirmative workers to build bridges to nowhere in special interest havens. More nails in the coffin.
        The people that brought this country this far down are not going to have a sudden change of heart. They unfortunately are your representatives and owners. The borders are open and the jobs are gone. The education system and health care destroyed. The only flag that you can safely fly now is a rainbow flag, or pick one from another country. Yeah, this guy says he going to change all that. The guy that had Hillary and Bill in the front row of his wedding.
        And that’s all that I have to say about this.

      Looks like Trump is heading for a kimchi enema. Making war on North Korea is a very bad idea. Firstly, North Korea has done nothing but prepare for a major war with the US since the 1960s. It has built vast underground cities and bunkers to survive a nuclear attack. All North Korea has to do to win such a conflict is to hit back at various key places – acupuncture style – and America has a big wobble. Those include:

      1) Major civil unrest: easiest thing in the world to do is to get the blacks fighting with everyone else.
      2) Attack South Korea and US pacific military.

      Those two actions alone would break America.

      • Kevin2 says:

        North Korea is like a toothache, it won’t kill you but its annoying. NK has been shaking down the US for two decades by rattling their saber and getting loans (gift), oil, food in return. That DMZ on the NK side keeps their people in. Destroy the barrier at the 38th parallel , drop leaflets down in a psyops and watch the people flee south.

        The world economy has no legs supporting it so any military action of substance will bring the house built from a deck of cards tumbling down. That fall takes out China’s economy too. China fears the influx of NK refugees in event of war. China has a vested interest in keeping NK just where it is as a buffer state not desiring US troops anywhere near the Yalu River.

        • BlackMoe says:

          That DMZ that works so well at keeping them from entering SK is exactly what we need on our southern border to keep the shitstains from entering the US.

          • Kevin2 says:

            All of the walls and barriers are in vain if these peasants can find employment paying 5x or more of what they can make at home or get even more lucrative welfare. If a home is infested with ants you first remove the food. NAFTA had the back edge of its knife bade destroy Mexican farmers that can’t compete with US food prices. The farm hands no longer employed sought jobs in the US.

      • Anonymous says:

        South Korea is an ally, we have a mutual obligation to come to each others defense.

        As the South Koreans I fought along side of did during Vietnam.

        So is Japan, another country threatened by NK, we limited their military capabilities to close defense after WWII and entered into strategic defense agreements with them.

        FWIW, there were many Japanese in civilian support capacities in Vietnam as well, they just couldn’t be militarily involved since they were not allowed that role by their WWII surrender terms.

        • Kevin2 says:

          “South Korea is an ally, we have a mutual obligation to come to each others defense.”

          This is the only obligation the US Government has. Whatever nations helped the US in Vietnam were also co-conspirators in an immoral cause.

          1. The US promised Ho Chi Minh that if he helped us fight the Japanese we would stop France from returning after the wars end.

          WE LIED. The US ended up paying 95% of the French Indochina war effort to reestablish their colony.

          2. The 1954 French withdrawal required a unification election. The US the “bastion of free elections and democracy” thwarted this election because Ho Chi Minh would have won.

          So much for Democracy and Freedom.

          3. South Vietnam was created and a successive number of leaders installed, none popular.

          So much for that Freedom and Democracy again

          5. Unable to sustain South Vietnam anymore by itself the Gulf Of Tonkin incident, a false flag, gave the President authorization to commit regular US forces.

          Ostensible / false flags are real popular ways to get wars going (see WMD in Iraq)

          6. Unable to defeat both the NVA (without invading NVN) and potentially fighting the Viet Cong forever the US looks to withdraw with honor.

          It would have been far more honorable not to habitually lie to everyone over this for over three decades.

          7. Interestingly in 1979, 4 years post fall of South Vietnam and six years post US ceasing combat actions China and the unified Vietnam fought over a contested border.

          The Vietnamese have a hatred for the Chinese, considered them a threat because they fought a 1000 year war with them to gain their independence. None of this registered to the Neo-Conservative hawks well linked to the Military Industrial Complex. The domino theory was utter bullshit as communist often did not trust communist. See Broz Tito.

      Regardless of your position or beliefs of who, what and why. What is presently obvious for all is a matter of reduced access to goods and services. It’s therefore time to think of long term items that will wear/run out in the next few months:

      Dental cleanings, reschedule/move them up for next week.
      Tooth brushes.
      Extra Glasses.
      Basic hardware, (nails, staples, and duck tape, etc).
      Extra shoes for the kids to grow into for next year, if the stores are closed.
      Work gloves.
      Shoe and boot repair materials.

        Faux Lib.. Yes if you are home steading or bugging out, I recommend at least 5 pairs of good leather gloves per person. Just simple hand injuries will set you back. I burned through about 7 pairs in 2 years, where about every finger tip has holes in them. Also get multiple pairs of good work boot that have real stitching in the soles. These glues soles today, will come undone. As you also need a few tubes of Shoe Goo to fix them or the boots will no longer be good. Fix minor repairs before them become bigger repairs.

        Back in the depression people wore shoes until the completely broke apart. The biggest lesson in the Depression was, “Use it up, Wear it out, Make do, or Do without!” Learn to salvage parts of every kind, instead of throwing it all away. I have crates of parts from everything, springs, to bolts screws, latches, hinges, you name it. Comes in handy. Or pay .15 for a friggin bolt at a hardware store these days, its ridiculous.

      Police State: Seven Baltimore Police officers indicted on federal racketeering charges. 5 were Black, 2 White

      Yep these Pigs were shaking down innocent citizens stealing their money, their guns, their drugs, jewelry, filing false reports and the lists go on and on. These Pig Criminals also cost the City of Baltimore over $500,000 in lawsuits against the City for these cops criminal activities. The FBI and Drug enforcement were brought in to help in the investigation. They were stopping people coming from their storage units, claiming they had warrants but did not, stealing people cash and contents, $70K in one case where they split the money up. They also lied about their overtime work and a few collected more than double their $85K a year salaries.

If the bad cops are turned in their own Departments usually do everything not to open up a real investigation based on the two reasons above plus embarrassment. The Catholic Church did the same with priests molesting kids.

    9. Currently, the US government can’t pay the national debt. Currently, the US government can’t even pay the interest on the debt. The government prints money out of thin air, in order to pay the interest. This is called monetizing the debt. Ever dollar printed and spent on the interest makes the money in your pocket worth less every single day. Mathematically, there is a limit to how long that can continue. Technically, the US government is insolvent. We haven’t even touched on the unfunded entitlements coming due.

        What you say is correct but defaulting loans in masse destroy wealth (money) in the opposite effect of fractional reserve banking expanding the money supply. Inflation has risen but its not linear to money creation M1. With “elastic currency” they have significant wiggle room.

        We the economically uneducated look at money as a store of wealth. Its more like a air in a tire that leaks are and is refilled. Its kinda hard to get your head around it but they can do what they been doing for a long time. Its highly probable, like that tire that it will one day pop. One of the biggest problems is the instability of bubbles that end up inhibiting productive investment because everyone is frightened about tomorrow.

Stop all security to former Presidents and stop all free medical to the senators and congressmen…..these afore mentioned people can afford to pay for these perks themselves. The medical costs for these people have to be humongous, there has never been an investigation as to exactly how much the costs are. I’m sure they would not want the American people to know what this perk is costing the American tax payer. Yet the citizens of the USA are being made to suffer for their benefit of living high on the hog. Time for our government to tighten their belts. Maybe if the senators and congressmen had to live on minimum wage and buy into Obama Care to see the reality of it all. If you notice they, people in Washington never mention the free medical they get, and it’s totally free. No premium, no deductible, no 80/20% pay. This has got to be costing unfathomable amounts of money. This country has got to fall in order to correct things, because the government is not willing to correct their criminality. None of them.

      That bitch just moved into the Obamas house down the street from the white house. According the leaked source, they plan on taking down the white house, and removing the president by force. Since she is with the Chinese communist leadership and arranged with Obama to bring in 350,000 Chinese, AND THEY ARE HERE ALREADY 25,000 Russians, Mongolian burkas, and other terrorist jihadist nationals, including the 1,200,000 Chinese soldiers scattered all over mexico, including the jihadist bases on the Texas Border, and Hodges warned us in Texas recently.

      China is a sponsor of terrorism, they have been selling guns and weaopons to terrorist countries, and the Russians made all their money in the past from selling weapons to the middle east. They supported china and the communist Vietnamese during the vietman war. So fuck Russia and Putin.

        -HCKS-

        1.2 million Chinese troops in Mexico. How you figure? What exactly is a Mongolian burka?
        Assuming the “bitch” you are talking about is Valerie Jarrett, hard to believe she is the
        mastermind behind a planned coup involving Chinese troops. We will just have to see how that plays out. They better increase the Secret Service detail around the White House.
        No doubt add a few more sharpshooters on the roof. Maybe put some TOW launchers on
        the Marine One chopper for that quick getaway, if need be. Housing all those ChiCom
        troops in Mexico seems like a massive feat. Did the Mexican government assist with this operation? Wonder how our sattelites did not detect such a massive troop movement.
        Had to be empty shipping containers on cargo ships. Glad to hear you are with Trump.
        Perhaps he can use you as a pre-invasion advisor. I always thought the invasion of
        Normandy was the greatest military plan of all time. This takes the cake. We won’t be
        able to mobilize enough troops to stop those hordes of troops heading north. Maybe all
        of the patriots in Texas can slow them down for a little while. In the meantime, our military
        will have to assemble the greatest counterstrike in history with every available aircraft
        available. We will probably have to get civilian volunteers with single engine Cessnas to
        drop molotov cocktails out the windows. Cropdusters as well. All civilian drones will be
        repurposed and weaponized. A backdoor draft with prior service people will have to be
        authorized because we won’t have enough time to train new recruits. Oh, the humanity!!!

    19. Retail is phasing out.
      The music has stopped.

      Learn to play an instrument. Get an instrument for each member of your family. Learn to read and compose music. Buy CDs with classical music. Read about the great European classical composers. Bach is soothing, Mozart is exciting, Beetothen is exceptional, and Brahms is ethereal. Musicians are better mathematicians. The brain is an organ which requires exercise. Listening and playing classical music increases IQ slightly but in a significant way because the same area of the brain is used for both math and music. These areas are essential to logic and analytic thought, analysis. Even senility is milder and or avoided altogether when use of the brain is enhanced by early exposure to Classical music and Mathmatics.

      Retail is has been taken over and now is being phased out. It is important that we not rely entirely on the delivery of goods via parcel delivery. Brick and mortar stores give one the option of paying cash for goods which have been examined before purchase. The control of the item is literally in your own hands. We should not give this up. Patronize local mom and pop stores. Get together and open a store yourself. Some homes are in areas wich are zoned for commercial as well as residential. These areas make business possible on a shoestring. As a retail licensed individual, all your purchases are less expensive. Your license gives you the opportunity to buy wholesale. Stocking your shelves with essential items for Preppers will help others and ensure your own survival.

      Every problem holds within it an opportunity. The wise man looks for that hidden pearl.

      Almost sixteen years ago a painfully obvious controlled demolition took place in NYC on 9/11/01. America then proceeded to literally beat the life out of countries that had nothing to do with it. Along with the incarceration and torture of individuals that had nothing to do with it either.

      LOT OF FINGER POINTING,but NO one has the right answer yet, because you don’t listen to GODS PROPHETS,and your still NOT listening,SO I WILL TELL YOU WHAT OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN SAID…”TAKE MY NAME OFF YOUR MONEY,OR I WILL TAKE ALL YOUR MONEY AWAY FROM YOU”…AMERICA IS one nation under SATAN..NOT GOD,take his name off your money OR he will take it away from you,BUT knowing how stupid Godless america is ,they won’t listen till all their money is gone,and sadly you were warned.ONE last warning,DON’T take the microchip or the mark,unless you want to be broke and going to hell too……..

    32. Inflation is a good thing if your in the right position. Case in point: If the inflation rate skyrockets (hyper-inflation) then it would take a wheel barrel full of dollars to buy a loaf of bread. Ah, but then for a loaf of bread, I could pay my mortgage off.!!! Trump is wrong…the world isn’t screwing America. America is screwing the world. Because of the Fed and the honor of being the worlds reserve currency, we’ve been able to abuse that honor buy printing money to pay our debts with cheaper and cheaper fiat currency. We get the products without making them, and they get the debased currency. Get it. In other words, we’ve been able to live way beyond our means, thanks to world reserve status. Problem is, the rest of the world is waking up….the chickens are coming home to roost. And when the world war kicks off (its coming), our depleted manufacturing base won’t be able to produce the armaments required to sustain a world war. And the rest of the world will be giving us the middle finger as they ally with China, Russia, and Iran. The end is near. Prep and pray.!!!!
