    Bread and Circuses: Poor and Broke Camp Out Overnight, Rush the Gates for Gov Rental Assistance

    The video clip below is reminiscent of the annual American version of the Running of the Bulls on the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. But on this particular day, people aren’t looking for deals on flat screen TV’s and video game systems. Having maxed out their credit cards to “save” money on must have technology items in November of 2010, many residents of the U.S. are finding it increasingly difficult to put food on the table and pay the rent.

    This has led to increased government assistance all over the country. The latest giveaway in the growing trend of housing and rental entitlement expenditures comes to us from Dallas, TX, where broke and hungry residents, many of whom camped out overnight, rushed the gates of the Jesse Owens Memorial Complex in an effort to get their piece of the entitlement pie.

    For those familiar with the movie Gladiator starring Russel Crowe, you may be familiar with the scene where Caesar has loaves of bread thrown to the crowds. The actions of our government today are nothing more than the bread and circuses acts of the political elite in societies on the brink of collapse. Appease the masses with empty promises and satisfy the immediate shallow needs of the populace. Rinse, repeat. Until you run out of money to even throw them their bread.

    This begs the question, what happens when the money stops flowing to Main Street?

    We suspect it will go something like Zbigniew Brzezinski forecast in a recent interview, suggesting that when the middle, working and welfare class run out of money society will slide into intensified social conflicts and hostility.

    It’s obvious that more and more people are finding it increasingly difficult to pay for their housing, their food, and their energy needs. At some point the credit will run out – on a personal and governmental level – and the necessities for life will cost so much that no one will be able to afford them. When this happens, we can expect not hundreds, not thousands, but hundreds of thousands of angry, broke, and hungry people lining the streets of our major cities demanding justice.

      Remember the crime waves of the ’20s and ’30s spawned by the “Great Depression”? That era gave birth to some of our most notorious criminals such as John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, baby Face Nelson, Machine Gun Kelly, and Pretty Boy Floyd. Get ready to see criminals increasing in numbers and firepower as dwindling law enforcement budgets overcrowding prison systems, and desperation take hold of our country. I foresee guns, rocket launchers, and grenades backflowing into the US to fuel the new criminal super gangs who will be spreading their wings unimpeded throughout the states. It’s gonna get bloody folks so buy it cheap and stack it deep, lock-n-load!

        I don’t agree with that theory, Beefcake. I’d bet (if it could be proven) that most of the violence was due to alcohol prohibition and the bootlegging business. The crime goes with interference in the market by the government and the resulting easy money.

        Compare this to the drug war and you can see the same thing, only an order of magnitude worse; it’s worse due to the fact that now the government doesn’t care about the Constitution as it prosecutes this 50-years long and counting ongoing “drug police action”.

          The “war on drugs” will not end because it has become such a large industry. The numbers are mind-boggling:suppliers of military-style “police equipment”, lawyers, judges, prison guards, bail bondsmen, court reporters, “treatment professionals” with revolving doors (“treatment” that is almost a failure), and the list goes on and on.

          I do not blame the “Mexican drug cartels”. America has an insatiable appetite for drugs. Without demand from USA, the “druglords” would have to pick vegetables.

          Although prohibition did create a lot of crime all those people I listed were more about robbery than bootlegging. They, as many people of that depression era, were faced with a choice of starve to death or start robbing banks. No jobs and no money will reveal just how thin the veneer of civility is within our society.

            I fear it has thinned out even more. re: Video above.

            I have rented to animals such as this. Without section 8, more often than not you don’t get paid. The state and county help them steal from landlords.

            I have mixed feelings about food pantries after cleaning out an apartment (after an eviction) and finding huge quantities of canned goods, unopened spaghetti, and other food left behind. This food was not used because it required a little effort to prepare.

          • John Q and Beefcake,
            You’re both right! The mob (including the Kennedy family) got their foothold during the Prohibition on liquor, but the failure of the banking system created an atmosphere of bitterness among the general population that allowed the thuggery and thievery to have a veneer of respectability with the population — the Robin Hood effect.

        Tell you what: For a good, hard lesson, play the old Space Invaders game sometime. However, try to beat every level. Because that’s exactly what facing a horde of desperate people will be like. Sure, you’ll kill quite a few people, but more and more will come, at greater and greater rates of speed and in greater numbers. You can’t reload fast enough, and neither can 12 of your best buddies, no matter what kind of badassed military background you say they may have.

        Personally, the best you can hope for is sufficient isolation and a sufficiently strong community. Anything else is going to wipe you out… eventually.

            Remember how well it worked out for the hotels that took the gubmint money for “Katrina refugees”? In almost every case they had to go to court and evict these leeches (who had already trashed the hotel).

            you make a good point about the cars. How can so many people afford a car to get there, but want something for free to help with the rent. seems to me if you can’t afford rent for housing, you can’t afford a car either.
            I have personally seen people using food stamps to buy crap, and going out and getting in a $40,000 truck. it does not compute. There are those that need some help, and I’m glad i don’t have to make the decision about who gets it.

          We do not need to attack the old, the poor, or the infirm in America. They are the results of the unfettered, enchecked capitalism, of the gangster banksters who have looted, raped, and stolen the American economy for themselves and their progeny.

          The political and financial elite in this country would like nothing better than to have US bickering among ourselves and pointing fingers at each so that they can escape the judgement that rightly belongs to them.

            I do agree with you 100% that the bankers are to blame for most of the countries economic problems. I learned about the “gangster banksters” as you call them 30+ years ago. No one wanted to listen then and no one wants to listen now. You also have to admit that our so-called elected officials have done a wonderful job at facilitating and exacerbating our economic problems by promising the world to an ever expanding horde of takers.

          Yes, but if the jobs are to be “brought back”, Americans are going to have to be prepared to work for much lower wages. I’d guess minimum wages should be abolished and union protection ended, too.

            Kred: Not at all. Absolutely not at all. Americans need not work for lower wages. Minimum wages should not be abolished when there are five Americans unemployed for every one job available. That would be asinine.

            Ok so you put more people to work for $4.00 per hour? And more at $3.00 an hour. Of course, you can put even more people to work at $1.25 an hour, which was the minimum wage when I started working. That accomplishes nothing but the TOTAL destruction of the middle class.

            The way WE bring the jobs and factories back to America is the same way they left. They were “encouraged” to leave by Executive Agreement and legislation.

            They can come back the same way. There is no reason why multinational corporations that make billions of dollars in profit and pay NO American taxes should have access to OUR markets. That’s insanity! That is legislated corruption paid for by the NWO lobbyists.

            If a company wants to sell their products in America they can build a factory here with American workers producing the product, or they can pay a tariff for access to OUR markets.

            There is NO such thing as Free Trade or Free Markets. They do NOT exist. They NEVER have. Don’t buy into that BS. They do not exist now. These are sloguns of the international gangster banksters. These sloguns are euphanisms for the financial rape of the American economy and taxpayer. Wake up sheeple!

            All markets are MANAGED. Its time to defend OUR markets, OUR jobs, OUR economy, and the American way of life by managing OUR markets through “Fair Trade”.

            Its time to manage OUR markets to the benefit of the American taxpayer and family. This country belongs to US. These are OUR markets, but the gangster banksters have “shanghied” them: literally and figuratively.

            The Founding Fathers envisioned funding the federal government with TARIFFS. If these gangster banksters want access to American markets,

            Durango, you’re a PROTECTIONIST. You believe in a planned economy, a big government economy. One with tariff walls – which would crash the dollar vs. other currencies. One in which Americans are NOT permitted to move their businesses and buy and sell to whomever, wherever the see fit.

            Tell me this: what right does any government have to tell private individuals or companies where they may sell goods, what they may sell, to tax them so as to render them unprofitable and then to tell Americans what they may buy?

            You’d be using coercive government to force Americans to pay $2.00 per coathanger or $50,000 per American-made car…and there would be hell to pay when they find out that foreign-made ones were much cheaper.

            It’s the principle of the thing: the individual is sovereign and governments are just gangs of thugs with guns. You are a supporter, no doubt, of tougher border controls, minimum wages, higher taxes on “the wealthy”, supporting “our” troops and, now, telling Americans and American companies what they can buy or sell and where they can do it.

            Sounds like a big government planned economy to me.

            No one should be permitted to interfere with the natural right of private contract: what two people (or companies, etc.) agree between themselves – what is to be sold, to who, what the price shall be, where the goods are sourced, what shall be used as money – is their business ALONE.

            Might as well bleed the .gov dry on the way down. It sees you only as a source of revenue. Have you noticed that the “professionals” seem to have priority over you when it comes to obtaining benefits?

          In principal, what you say is correct. Witness the story about the recent positions that opened up at McDonalds nationwide. they turned away close to a million people. These people wanted a job, any job.
          But the reality of the situation is that it’s to late to reverse the course that has been set. After the economy reset, jobs can be brought back. But we must reset first, and it isn’t going to be pretty.
          And the trouble with the idea of feeding all the poor—what’s left of the middle class is going to be fighting for that same crumb of food the poor are. There simply isn’t enough food out there for all. This fact will come to light in the coming months.
          Whatever you’re going to put away, do it now. Not just for hard times to come, but the price of food is going out of sight. it just makes good common sense. good luck.

The whole rotten system needs to be destroyed and one of the best ways to do it is by using its own laws and forcing it to collapse under the weight of its own giveaways. And it allows you to use what cash you have to buy more ammo and store more food.

      I grew up poor. It was Mom, Dad and us four kids. Dad was a firefighter and Mom did clarical work. Sometimes they worked two jobs so us kids could have a better life. Mom really knew how to stretch dinner so we all had enough to eat. Dad was great at keeping the old house and car running. We always had a roof over our head, clothes on our backs and food to eat. They were the “make do” generation and made sure us kids could “make do” also. They never took a handout and wouldn’t to this day. It is a shame that so many have made a lifestyle of taking gov’t handouts. One welfare generation begets another and another and another.

            Thanks for taking the time to give some insite to all of this.

            I do not know if you have tried food reserves. I started prepping with canned food and have found it to be a bit burdensome rotating inventory. The food reserves last 15+ years. I found a company that lets you try the food for free, just pay shipping. http://baboon.myefoods.com/

            The only other thing I see is bleach and toilet paper.No one ever thinks of TP, but it is something you do not want to be without!!

      One generation after another of entitlement bloodsuckers continues to perpetuate. There is no way of knowing for a certainty just who, in this particular video, are those in true need of assistance; I will, however, venture a guess that the majority of these porcine sprinters are the exact same people lined-up for every other handout offered at each government agency in the Dallas area.

      Take a close look at the hint of disorder and chaos erupting at this one isolated venue. This is just a small sampling of what’s to come when the Golden Horde has their multi-generational goverment sugar-teet removed from their collective selfish, “me first” mouths.

          I appreciate your comments, Black Sheep. And what you say is true about most of them being products of their environment. The criminal banksters are, without a doubt, the single most reprehensible and (ir)responsible entities on our planet. That being said, I continue to stand by my belief that these will be the same people who run amok when the world turns completely upside-down, and riotous chaos is the rule, as opposed to the exception. At that point it really won’t matter very much who was to blame. At that point the only thing that will matter is survival of the fittest.

            Pete Moss, you are correct in saying them people are the ones who will run amok when the world turns upside down.. I agree fully but I will have to disagree on the saying of “”it really won’t matter very much who was to blame”"

            yes it will matter, I will try as hard as I can so maybe that anger is directed first where it needs to be directed..

            I/we can not stop them, but we can surely help to make them direct their anger in the correct direction… call it sweet justice I want, or what ever it may be called…lol

            They can line up for the freebies there is no stopping that, but it would be best to make sure they all know fully who is driving the train before the party crash’s..

            You know, some people will say none of them people on that video want to work and all that group scenario type of thinking jazz.

            The reality is, even if 40% of them people “do not” need what is being offered it makes no difference..

            if 40% of the people are scamming for freebies does that then mean, we are suppose to throw the other 60% who do need help desperately under the bus ?? just because of the 40% of freeloaders ??.. I think not…

            I see no logic on either way of it.. I simply want to help in making others understand what is happening… Durango Kidd is far better in typing the words with the knowledge behind them, than I ever can..

            I am sorry if I sounded as if I was attacking you.. I was not, and I apologize for my heavy words without making myself clearer..

            but hey, I do respect you and your reply, only real people will discuss whats rite and wrong…

            also, before I forget, I prefer Darwinism as the rule, as opposed to the exception… :)

    26. Mac, You’re a great educator! Thanks for giving me a kick in the pants two years ago! “The Book” is still being read! When I got The Book, I had been thinking about things but not acted appropriately to rotate. Between you and Jack Spirco at TheSurvivalPodcast.com, I have slowly acclimated to the point of what I have now. I am now in a command position of anything that happens. Next pay its solar panels and a few more laying hens!

      …oh, and I’m swapping out some fuel tomorrow.

      Feels like its time to stuff the magazines and get them ready. Anyone else feel the same way?

        It’s funny. The hardest thing for me to learn to do was to shut up & not say anything to people. I read the book, Creature From Jekyll Island back in the mid nineties. (I had also previously read “None Dare Call It Conspiracy”) Anyway, I have known how the Keynesian system of fiat money with credit expansion must ALWAYS end in a bust. I thought surely the murder of Vince Foster or Ron Brown would’ve started the collapse. I would try and talk to people and they thought I was nuts. Two new bullshit wars, TARP and ARRA later and the banker bastards are ready to let it go now.

        Well I have had to rotate some of the beans, rice and flour. I have had to just keep the rear end of the ammo pile fresh but, to answer your question, yes IT is almost upon us.

        I have spent about 15 years wishing I was still asleep, “Hey, who got kicked off the island?” A divorce that almost killed me and took most of my PM stock didn’t help. But I am happy now. I have my kids close by, they humor the old man a bit and help me out with the prepping as they are able even though I know they don’t really believe they will ever need all of the stuff I have ready for us.

        There most definitely will be a race war. Look what happened in Peoria a week or two ago. This type of behavior is DESIGNED to get a white person to respond and once that happens…well, I think the phrase is something like “It’s on like donkey kong” or similar. The racial part is gonna suck because two of my grandkids are black. I am going to have to hide them. I suppose it is fortunate in some aspects that their father is the stereotypical negroid lazy POS. The girl is in middle school and “dad” still hasn’t sent his first child support check although I do think they got one Christmas card a few years ago,

          Who cares if you have Black Grandkids, with hate like that. Do you realize how many Black men who have degrees and trades and pulled themselves up by the bootstraps cant find a job right now?

          DO YOU THINK THIS IS A GAME?

          YOU HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED BY AMERICAN NEO-CON AND EVEN NEO-LIB GLOBALISTS TO THINK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS WHEN IN ALL REALITY THEIR LIVES ARE BEING SABBOTAGED BY THE GLOBALIST ELITE WHO ALSO WRITES THE CHECKS OF THE POLITICAL COMMENTATORS WHO SAY THESE THINGS LIKE “BLACKS SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS” DESPITE THE FACT THAT THE ELITE HAVE EVERYTHING RIGGED AGAINST THEM.

          THEY EXPERIMENT ON THE BLACK COMMUINITY FIRST, AND IF THE PROGRAM IS SUCCESSFUL, THEY THEN MOVE THE PROGRAM TO WHITES. GUESS WHAT, WHITES IN AMERICA ARE ABOUT TO GET BLACK AS IN LIVE BLACK.

            God will give America a taste of what it’s like to live in a 3rd world country until the year 2018. Talk about Change, if you dont realize what’s up man. Then I feel sorry for you

            Just a small snippet of the deterioration of the next 30 months:

            - Gas will go to as high as $7-$8 a gallon
            - All social programs will be cut and even ended in quite a few cases.
            - There will be a Huge crime wave
            - There will be a New Regime in 6-9 months (a revolutionary change if you catch my drift)
            - Inflation will progressively get worse, food prices will never truly stabilize until 2018. There will be times when they drop really low, and then rise way back up.
            - There will be Melees, American freedom fighters in gun battles planting bombs, etc.., and Small Riots from the day of the Debt Ceiling to the beginning of 2013.
            - The elite will trigger a Depression at the end of 2012. The rebirth of the 1933 Bank Panic which turned the Great Recession of 1929 to a Great Depression.
            - There will be very bloody Civil War in 2013, which wont be mostly about states- you will see some places try to split off, but not many. It will be mostly about different Races (Race War), Different Classes (Class War) Different Generations (generational war), Different Political Parties (Political War).

            If you are done yelling I am puzzled? Do you think I am being too hard on the childrens father? The fact that he quit a good union job, moved a thousand miles away from them, was selling dope and cruising around in a Cadillac until his recent arrest just about nails the stereotype. His own family is disgusted with his behavior. I didn’t create the stereotype. I simply acknowledged that it exists and his actions are the type of behavior that keep it alive.

            As for my being a racist: first let me say that I will never apologize for being born white. If that offends you..too bad. My definition of racism is to think that you are better than people of a different skin color based solely upon their color. Well I do not have a PHD as does Alan Keyes and when I watched him demolish Alan Dershowitz in a debate I knew that my vocabulary, critical thinking skills and eloquence shall, though improving, always be inferior to Mr. Keyes. I do judge people on the content of their character..not their skin color. As well I accept that reality is and I cannot change that which is beyond my power to change.

            Racism is a form of social brainwashing created by the elite. Maybe he quit that “good union job” because he felt zero security there? Maybe he is smart enough to see the tea leaves coming?

            Part of the deterioration I speak of will include pay cuts as mush as 25%-50% on most jobs. There will be union stirkes like never seen before in America’s history very soon, and they will be very bloody.

            America is a very very horrible country, and this is the truth. Maybe he got tired of being a slave at some union job? Maybe they were about to terminate him, and it became a joke?

            Did you know that there’s an organized attack on the American Male- with the Black Male as the guinea pig to:

            - Break down the family
            - Break up the family
            - Put the women in charge of the family and community (a woman will follow an agenda all the way to a FEMA Camp if you catch my drift). I’m an old fashioned guy, and it’s a fact that when Black Men ran the community in the past the moral structure maintained itself.
            - Create a generational cycle of poverty
            - Create a lowered standard of living requiring 2 incomes
            - Criminalize something which was once perfectly legal and people took for granted (drugs in this case)
            - Make it hard for men to make Good money either by not allowing them a good job, or by making good jobs a living hell to work- so they say “fuck it I’ll hustle” then they commit crimes and end up in jail for most of their productive lives also feeding into their population control agenda by havoing less babies and putting women in situations to where they are economically forced to get an abortion.

            THIS ISNT JUST IMMORALITY AND GENERATIONAL FAILURE BY HUMAN WILL, THIS IS CREATED BY DESIGN!!! IT’S IMMORALITY COERCED UPON THE PEOPLE BY OUTSIDE SOCIO-ECONOMIC FORCES!!

            First all we are a site of people that have found each other in search of some answers to wtf is going on in our country.After reading you post on the last topic I have to ask who is the rascist? Let me share something with you in hopes it might tell something about brain washing.WARNING this might be a long post

            Be Proud To Be White.

            I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is……

            Michael Richards makes his point…and whether welike it or not, he is telliing the truth.

            Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld does make a good point.

            This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act.

            He makes some very interesting points…
            Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this?

            There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.

            And then there are just Americans.. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.

            You call me ‘Whiteboy,’ ‘Cracker,’ ‘Honkey,’ ‘Whitey,’ ‘Caveman’… And that’s OK…

            But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink .. You call me a racist

            You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you….
            So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
            You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.

            You have Black History Month.

            You have Cesar Chavez Day.

            You have Yom Hashoah.

            You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi.

            You have the NAACP.

            You have BET….

            f we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we’d be racists.
            If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.

            If we had White History Month, we’d be racists.

            If we had any organization for only whites to ‘advance’ OUR lives, we’d be racists.

            We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
            Wonder who pays for that??

            A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.

            If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships… You know we’d be racists.

            There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges inthe US ..

            Yet if there were ‘White colleges’, that would be a racist college.

            In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.

            If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

            You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, nd you’re not afraid to announce it.

            But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.

            You rob us, car jack us, and shoot at us.

            But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

            I am proud…… But you call me a racist.

            Why is it that only whites can be racists??

            There is nothing improper about this e-mail..
            Let’s see which of you are proud enough to send it on.

            I sadly don’t think many will.

            That’s why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country.

            We won’t stand up for ourselves!

            BE PROUD TO BE WHITE!

            It’s not a crime YET…. But getting very close!

            Theses are not my words however the have a very good point, you wanna talk brainwashed, then damn man stand in front of a mirror and ask yourself how do you feel about a whiteman!!

            Sincerely

            Let me first apologist for my spelling. (under educated) But that shyt don’t matter, here is a little story for you based on facts.

            One night in my neighborhood we had a stranger come around, this POS had tried to break in 3 homes before he reached my property when I came to the door it caught me off guard sine I have a bigass gate. However he managed to get to my front door and tried to force it open, thank god I always have a gun close by, when I open the front door with the gun the man stepped back off the porch and much to his surprise one of my neighbors was blocking his exit. This is a man that I didn’t even know his name, he was a small stocky man very much a family man that had outstanding traits for raising his kids. However we never really talked much, but there he was on my driveway backing me up just like I would back him up if needed. I thank god he was there in my time of need and would always return the same for him if need be!
            Now here is the kicker. He was a man , not a nigger or a spook, just a man with black skin, he was a man with Honor, Pride and a set a values for his life and his family . And I’m White!!!
            So please don’t tell me who is brainwashed
            In gods eyes we are the same. Yellow, Red, Brown, Black or White.

            I’m betting that if I wrote white first I’d be a racist..

          sorry, but the ones that got screwed the most in this game and country is the Native Americans (Indians)

          you say you know the elite’s have created this game but yet it sounds as if you are ready to condone doing the same thing to ALL whites ??..

          do you think ALL white people are ‘elites’ or something more ‘evil’ ??.. like no whites ever show real friendship or kindness ??..

      KRED: So insightful! You found me out! YES! I am a protectionist!. I believe in DEFENDING American jobs, the American market, and the American economy from the international gangster banksters who have raped the American taxpayer and family in a successful attempt to destroy the American economy: in the same way OUR military spends $700 billion every year to defend US against military attack.

      OUR economy is under assault by the NWO GB’s. It is a deliberate attack to destroy OUR economy and OUR freedoms while lining their pockets with immoral profits. Immoral because they have stolen the American economy, moved it offshore using American depositor funds, and use it to make ungodly profit margins at OUR expense.

      “Protectionist” is a label the NWO GB’s like to use to try and discredit anyone who believes that trade should be fair. It is not now fair. It is a lopsided, one sided affair, heavily weighted to the advantage of the NWO GB’s. The evidence is all around you, the verdict is in: “Free Trade” does not work, at least not for American workers, taxpayers, and families.

      It works great for the NWO GB’s. Free trade is a euphanism for the financial rape of the American economy.
      Free Trade does not exist. It never has. It never will. It doesn’t now.

      Free trade is a concept by a dead economic philosopher, Mises, that the NWO GB’s use as a label to sell it to Americans as if it were a FREEDOM. It is not. It is the enslavement of America by another name.

      All markets are managed trade, Even NAFTA is managed trade. It is just “managed” to the benefit of the gangster banksters and not to the American worker, taxpayer, and family.

      I do not believe in a planned economy and I didn’t say that. That is the kind of tactic that Clark liked to use. It won’t work. It only makes you look stupid as my post is available for all to read.

      Neither did I say a company could not relocate anywhere they wanted or could not produce what they wanted. Companies are free under the law to do as they wish within limits.

      But if they want to access the American market they need to build factories in America like Toyota, Honda, MB and others have done, and are doing, and provide jobs to American workers. Otherwise if they want to access the American market then they should pay tariffs on those goods and services.

      You should know and understand that companies like Honeywell and other MIC defense contractors were initially DIRECTED by GHW Bush to transfer units to China and federal legislation by Congress was passed to allow it.

      Prior to that time they were not allowed to move to China, and there was no incentive to do so. Congress CREATED that incentive. And what did we get for sending MIC units to China to boost its economy? Defective computer chips designed to spy on US or fail at a critical moment.

      This was the start of the treason by Congress and the International GB’s to bribe the CCP to become capitalists.

      I do not believe in big government and did not say so. Again you are projecting upon me ideas that I did not champion to try to discredit me. It won’t work. My post is there for all to read and it only makes you look foolish by ascribing things to me which I did not say.

      Look around yourself. WE already have big government and a dollar that will decline precipitously over the next five years, by another 97% using today’s value as a benchmark. If you want a smaller government then fund it using TARIFFS as the Founding Fathers intended using gold and silver as real money as required by the US Constitution. Of necessity then the federal government would shrink.

      As far as a OUR exports are concerned, if you would examine them closely (and apparently you have not) you would know that WE primarily export aircraft and machinery and agricultural goods, and other TECHNOLOGY.

      If you understood anything about China, you would understand that they are stealing our technology and reverse engineering OUR aircraft to develop that capability in house. In fact China is working feverishly to become an independent producer of everything they need.

      As for your last question, trade must be reciprocal. If WE give them something they must give US something in return. That’s fair trade. WE had and will have again a large consuming market. If nations or companies want access to OUR market, trade must be fair.

      The greatest trade in history, not including the Louisiana Purchase or the purchase of Alaska from Russia, was probably the famous purchase of Manhattan Island by the Dutch from the Indians for the equivalent of $24 worth of beads and trinkets.

      In retrospect it seems to be the most amazing trade in history; but for the Indians who had never seen manufactured goods like those offered, it must have seemed like an incredible opportunity.

      The gangster banksters have seen the opportunity seised it and have used their wealth and influence to bribe Congress to create more wealth and power for themselves at the expense of the nation.

      This is treason at the highest level. Those responsible should be arrested, tried, convicted, and given the punishment reserved for traitors. A few examples would go a long way.

      Actually, Durango, I’m with you more than you think. I have 1/3 of my wife’s and my wealth in physical gold. A lot of silver. A lot of mining stock. A 3/4 acre semi-rural property. No mortgages, no borrowings. We can’t own guns, other than hunting rifles, here but I would have one if it were available. I save in gold because I opt out of a thieving and immoral financial system.

      Where we differ is on personal liberties. I believe that government is the enemy. Globalists are just another (international) government. No worse than national, state or local governments. All try to restrict the activities of the individual.

      The market, which is made up of millions of individuals, should be left alone. People should be entirely free to source, produce, buy and sell as they wish. If you “need” $15/hr. and another guy will do the job for $10 – or $4 – or $1 – who has any right to interfere? The deal is between the two people involved.

      I’m all for “fair” trade, if tht means equal and unfettered opportunity to try and sell in one another’s markets…even though “fair” is a wishy-washy liberal word for what you seek. But there is no way come hell or high water that you’re going to be able to earn or pay $15 or $20/hr.+benefits+pension+++ and compete with overseas competition…

        There is a very big difference between us.

        I guess you didn’t really read my comment. Free markets don’t exist. They never have. They never will. They were a hypothetical idea in a man’s mind (like marxism) that has never translated into reality as conceived because they do not account for the actions and character of individuals and nations; particularly in 21st century, post industrial America.

        Free trade was a figment of Mises’s imagination and that banner has been co-opted by the Globalists to become a mantra planted in the mind of the sheeple to make them believe (as you do) that somehow a free market is a freedom. It is not. It is a euphanism for the financial rape of America by the international gangster banksters.

        Free markets do not exist. They never have. They do not exist now. They never will.

        All markets in society today are managed. All markets are managed. All markets are managed. Formal trading between sovereign nations require agreements. These agreements are managed.

        “Free Markets” haven’t existed since the Dutch got the best of the Indians in a barter. It wasn’t really a “marketplace”. It was an individual trade.

        How can I fear something that doesn’t exist? I am wise however to the bullshit that the GB’s try to push on US under the guise of “Free Trade” and I am more than happy to expose it to the sheeple every chance I get!

    33. Plain Old American says:

      In order to find the proper equilibrium for the price of a product vs the labor to produce it it is necessary that both the consumer and the producer be subject to the same rules, regs and costs of doing business. When the factory is moved overseas to take advantage of cheap labor the consequence is that the worker that would’ve paid a fair price for the product is either flipping burgers or unemployed. That worker cannot “take advantage” of China’s lower cost of living.

      For more than two decades the worker went to Wal Mart and Target and dutifully bought the crap because he thought he was making a fortune on his house which he was using like an ATM. They were all unaware that value is subjective and what they were really seeing was a huge expansion of digital money created by artificially low interest rates.

      By using the overseas labor AND allowing a huge labor market distortion* with the illegals the American “middle class” that used to be blue collar, honest Joes either became lower class blue collar or he started a small business and stayed with the so called middle class. The salient point is that labor lost it’s natural pricing power and American wages have been steadily declining for years.

      (*illegals are NOT immigrants. They are only here to earn what they cannot earn in Mexico. They do not teach their children English and most plan to return to Mexico to take advantage of the much lower cost of living that is NOT available to the American worker)

      Applying tariffs to imported goods is not in any way equal to a planned economy. The thing is that Americans must live in the economy of the wealthy….they cannot live with the Chinese worker that does not pay $500 per month in property tax.

      There is a point where legitimate self interest gives way to avarice. If someone wants to earn the rewards of high profit for high risk I say great! But you do also have an obligation to work in the same economy as your employees. When money is the only goal and the quest for profit creates a nation full of unemployed desperate folks then the bankers and politicians deserve the rope they will receive.

      All Aboard For Camp Cocoapuff…

      Hot topic today Mac! You must have touched a nerve with this one! Well, my day wouldn’t be complete without depositing a few ‘droppings’ on shtfplan (just think of me like a tail-wagging pup, safe to have around but he keeps crapping in the flower beds) so…here goes:

      My belief is that when dealing directly with people, you evaluate them as individuals and make your best judgement as to their integrity and proceed from there. However, when dealing with groups, or just observing groups, I go with the ‘Birds of a Feather’ philosophy. Certainly, there are plenty of instances where a person will behave much differently than the stereotype for their group. But there’s a reason those stereotypes exist. Trace back to the beginning of the stereotype and you’ll usually see it wasn’t just created out of thin air, nor was it made just to denigrate or restrict the group for no good reason. It served to identify prominent traits within the group.
      Before anybody sends me a nasty reply, again I affirm there are plenty of INDIVIDUALS in a group that don’t fit the type. I have a buddy who is a redder redneck than me in every sense, and he happens to be black- he doesn’t fit the type for blacks or rednecks. I’m talking about GROUPS now, and why their stereotypes exist.
      Mostly, stereotypes exist for reasons of safety. Personal safety, psychological, financial or business safety, etc. People want and need information about others before they directly interact with them. Whether it’s deciding whom to hire, where to buy a house, whether to rent a house or make a loan to someone, or even where to go on vacation.(for those who have forgotten, ‘vacation’ is what we used to have before our economy flat-lined) We want to know as much as we can before we make a commitment or put ourselves at risk. Stereotypes serve to inform us about the ‘probable’ or even ‘likely’ behavior of persons based on their group identity. I need give no specific stereotypical traits to illustrate, you all know what I mean.
      Also, remember we ALL belong to more than one group. We categorize ourselves based on ethnicity, race, age, gender, sexual preferance, political views, religion and lots of other things. And there are many sub-groups within the larger ones. Such as Catholic/Protestant. Both subs of the Christian group. Then there are even sub-sub-groups such as Baptist/Methodist etc all within the sub-group of Protestant. And on and on it goes. We just keep identifying more groups to place ourselves into (or out of.) We even put ourselves willingly into groups, silly as it may seem, based on our musical tastes, sports teams, even what kind of car we like. (ever hear a Ford guy and a Chevy guy arguing? you’d think they were debating how to partition Poland after ww2)
      It’s also important to remember that few, if any, individuals will fit every trait in a particular group. Everybody has SOME traits that don’t fit the group(s) they’re in. However, most people will fit most, or at least MANY of their groups own stereotypical traits. That’s why stereotypes are useful. They give us a benchmark, or at least a starting point, for evaluating people. That helps us make our decisions about how to deal with them.
      After we know a bit about the individual then we can start to throw out the traits that don’t apply to them. Or at least we should if we’re being intellectually honest in how we treat them. Don’t hold a negative stereotypical trait against someone when you know it doesn’t apply to them. If you do, then you’re probably just using it to justify an emotionally based fear or resentment. Better to have our fears and resentments based on facts, not emotion. Until you get to know the individual though, stereotypes can be a valuable tool. Sadly, many in our modern politically correct society have decided to ignore common sense, intuition and truth (stereotypes are rooted in all three) and have attempted to destroy stereotypes with propaganda, legislation and brainwashing. They’ve even tried to demean the very word stereotype. They have failed mainly because stereotyping is inherant in our human nature. It’s been around as long as people have and it’s not going away. Still, the pc crowd tries to put on a fake show of acceptance for people they really don’t have any affinity for. I suspect this is done mainly to soothe their own mixed up emotional state.
      This rambling rant was mainly to get to this: what I see in the video is Many people who fit Many of the stereotypes of their group. Without knowing any of them individually we can say this- These are people who willingly contract with a corrupt government in order to get something they haven’t earned. Being ignorant or brainwashed is no excuse. These are the stereotypical kinds of people who destroy a nation, not build it up! I say bring in the busses to the FEMA camps. They can even sit in the FRONT!

I can hear y’all sometimes saying ‘nice try okie but you should have stopped after 2 paragraphs!”
          I still say that many stereotypes have a basis in our human intuition so we shouldn’t automatically dismiss them as bad things. We just have to follow up and verify or reject them when applied to individuals. The greater focus should always be on the root cause and that is the globalists and wanna be rulers of us all.

      Holy Cow! I just saw this mornings newspaper headline:
      16 Okies Critically Injured In High-Speed Mosey To Get Free Biscuits! The story goes on to say that Mabel Jenkins, the owner of Mabel’s Cutrate Cafe and Bait Shop advertised her first ever “Free Biscuit Friday” and was overwhelmed by the response. Sheriffs deputies from 3 counties were called in to handle the melee. Paramedics say they’ve never seen so many cases of sprained ankles or toe blisters at one time. Three people were taken to the hospital for observation after complaining of an irritating rash in an undisclosed location. All are expected to recover but one needed emergency ‘gold bond powder’ treatment on the scene. Sheriff Buck O’fama said he was forced to cancel the event after the crowd grew unruly and then stormed the kitchen area in search of the biscuits. The cafe’s parking lot was strewn with bent gravy ladles and crumpled napkins.
      “They wouldn’t listen to reason,” said a visibly shaken Ms Jenkins. “I told ‘em we was all out of biscuits but they didn’t believe me. I even offered ‘em free texas toast but they refused” she added, holding back the tears.
      Short order cook Wes Bedford confirmed the situation was “tense, very tense. We’ve had some rowdy crowds in here before, but never like this one. They was worse than the bass tournament guys, even worse than the Carrie Underwood concert. I was fighting ‘em off with my spatula at first, then I grabbed Mabel and we locked ourselves in the walk-in cooler. I thought they’d tear the whole place down.”
      The investigation into the matter is ongoing. Later in the morning, the yellow crime scene tape was removed, the gas pumps were back on and things began to return to normal. Even as lab workers were still taking plaster casts of boot heel prints from the parking lot, Mabel and Wes prepared to serve the lunch crowd from a make-shift kitchen set up near the minnow tanks.
      “I know one thing,” Mabel said, “We ain’t never gonna do that 2 for 1 pot roast special I was planning. My nerves just couldn’t take it.”
      Wes nodded in agreement, cranked up the Coleman camp stove and called to Mabel “Chicken fry with mashed on two! Order Up!”

      I don’t blame government, banks or big business anymore. The people in this country are ignorant and they’re learning the hard way, lots of pain. After you poke yourself in the eye and kick yourself in the behind enough times, the nonsense will cease.

      FIGHT THE CAUSE – NOT THE SYMPTOM

      We don’t have to live like this anymore, unless you prefer it.

        The only real freedom I want is “Common Law” and nothing more.. you are advocating changing one Oligarchy for another Oligarch.

        Then what??… this new control gets to tell me how I may not do this to myself or that to myself ??… I will pass

        if there is no injured party, then there is no crime period.

        There is no real freedom with anything more than Common Law.. I have had enough with these statute laws to protect me from myself and sadly your group is not showing me this..

      Durango, You are spot on the problem!! I have been telling people this for years. The only way we can solve this problem we have is to repudiate the debt, Take the pain,and go with an America first agenda.
      The product we have is food. Oil for food?? Not a bad idea! Tariffs so we can reindustrialize and become an export economy again. It is so plain that this whole deal was planned by the international corporations and bankers but people are not savvy enough to realize what is happening to them right in front of thier eyes!
      I think we’re in for a rough 5 years and since I’m not that young anymore, I hope I can deal with it.
      At least I live in very rual area so I hope power goes down so the hordes can not get gas to get to me. God BlessJames

        James
        You maybe right on the food for oil ideal. But what makes you think we will have control of the food? Let me share this with you, I find it very relavant since I live in the bread basket of america.

        Obama recently signed EO 13575, establishing the White House Rural Council. The council is a list of the most aggressive agencies and departments in the US government. The all-inclusive council members represent the very agencies and departments most dedicated to forcing the subjugation of the US to United Nations control. In fact, many of the agencies, departments and organizations listed as Council members are in fact creations of the UN; created for no other purpose than to give the United Nations direct access to the United States.

        This council can be viewed as nothing less than the establishment of a domestic terrorism group which will orchestrate the coming assault on private agricultural property owners in an effort to force them off their land and out of production. There was an effort during the Reagan presidency to launch a similar assault on individual owners of agricultural land which would have displaced more than 2 million people, handing their land over to others who were more amenable to the government and UN control.

        Now after reading this what makes you think we the people will control these asset’s?

      James,

      I agree with you except that I think America is in for a rough 30-40 yrs, when things start to look better, my kids will be in their eighties.
      we lived thru the best times in America,40s.50s,60s, early 70s, after that things have been going the other way.

      DPS and JM,
      DPS I agree with you about that councel and do not have an answer to that except that when and if they start to confiscate land/products a push back will occur. I just used it as an example of something we have that others can’t do without. Since we don’t have a viable manufacturing base anymore and we must reaquire.
      JM About 20 years ago I told my customers this:” We have lived in the the most prosperous time this country has ever seen…… or will ever see again” I did not want to be right but it appears that I was darnit!
      I have asked many folks how we can get out of this mess and I have been told by the people I love that I obsess about the stuff that is going on but they don’t have any answers to the problem at all. Bury head in sand type of thing.
      We must get producing companys back here and tariffs seem to be the only way to level the playing field.
      Pepare as you can. God Bless ,James

      yeah but “they” under paid, unemployed poor, will still have their cell phones ( and the bills) still have their HBO/shotime (and the bill) still have their DSL or High speed cable ISP ( and bill) still line up for those new Iphones/Ipads (and the bill)

      and don’t tell me cell phones are “cheap” they always require adding more min weather you use them or not and in time can add up ( more bills) a “cheap” cell peoples phone would be a cell phone with NO expering min, and you only add min when you run out, NO time limits period.

      I remember seeing a line around the block in one of them states FL I think of people waiting to get the chance to buy a 1 bed 1 bath condo for 350K, man more of those poor I guess.

      its always a pain to see the same talking headfs on those financial shows still making their 7 figure incomes talking all this “how bad the economy” is shit, and the metal heads that talk about shinning their shinny yellow and white metal hord. must be some poor people

      when I see EVERY body scrapping bark off trees than I’ll know its bad for EvERY body

      I see many comments suggesting discontent towards poor people, such as;

      Why are they fat? >> Think about it. Not to many poor people have personal trainer and gym access. Most low paying jobs involve little to no exercise. Unhealthy food is often times cheaper.

      Why do they have cars? >> Are you serious? City planning all across the U.S. and especially in Texas is designed for multi-mile commuting via car or public transit. If you are poor and on the edge, you want a car. Why? When you get evicted for being poor, you need something a little better than the ground to sleep on, or, a means to get to another city where there might be work.

      Most people here lie their little “sheeple” vernacular, but the truth is that there is a war on the middle class right now and you are next. What does the future hold? You being poor. You being laughed at because you were trying to get a handout. So, laugh now in nice home with your internet.

      I don’t wish for the nanny state any more than the next guy, but the answer certainly is not to simply yank welfare from the people.

      Folks- you are being played by the main stream media and the government. This is a semi annual show they put on to scare you. There was a similar incident in Georgia last fall.

      He’s the game. A city has section 8 housing as mandated by the federal gov’t. Section 8 housing vouchers have a waiting list. The waiting list gets dumped every so many years and the city says “y’all come and get on the list” People who need housing assistance go and get a voucher. Chaos ensues the main stream media covers it and the regular citizens say “OMG!!”

      Yes it is a good preview of after the collapse; imagine waiting in line for hours and hours only to have a pot bellied bureaucrat tell you “wrong line” or “no bread for you”

      further the gov’t always acts surprised when 1000 or 1500 people show up and prove that they were woefully unprepared. But that is just the gov’t being stupid. Obviously they could plan and say if your last name begins with A-F come on Monday etc. But they don’t because it is a fright show (freak show) put on to keep the rest of us working and paying our taxes.

      Welfare, public housing and food stamps should be a safety net not a life style but if you do a little research you will see that the government has passed regulations to keep these people in poverty.

      Did you know:
      If you receive cash assistance from the government and you save any of the money your next payment will have your savings deducted. Imagine that in your life – Spend all of your paycheck or you get paid less? It creates a cycle of poverty.

      The income limits for public housing are absurdly low; and if you make too much you get evicted. Some areas are actually allowing people to make a moderate income to encourage people to live there but this is the exception rather than the rule.

      Most people on public assistance have no credit rating or poor credit ratings so how do you move up and out when you can’t get another property or you can’t afford the security deposit?

      Lastly have you seen the unemployment rates for minority youth? 45%. The first lady talks about food deserts well most urban areas are job deserts.

      To quote pogo “We have seen the enemy and he is us”
