Cappy Cap - Why Gen X and Y should be denied Social Security.
Much as I loathe the baby boomers, the successive generations, mine included, are worse. Despite BLATANT and OBVIOUS financial problems our generations faced, we lacked the adult maturity (let alone simple 2nd grade mathematics) to turn this country around. And while the baby boomers have been voting more and more conservative, it is the younger generations through galactic stupidity, ignorance and selfishness that merely nailed a couple more nails in the US-coffin and thus our own futures.To be honest, the whole idea of programs such as Social Securityby their nature are Ponzi schemes, so there's no reason for it to exist in the first place.
Le Cygne Gris - Time to get out.
Once the US and indeed, the Anglosphere crashes, it will spell the end of the Cathedral, even without ITZ and all the other fun stuff that's going to take place.First off, if Buffett is leaving the US market, then it’s time for everyone else to follow suit. Sell of all of your investment items, cash out your retirement accounts, and go buy gold and silver and keep what you buy in your possession. Or at least hold cash in your possession. The market is finally catching up with reality, and now it’s time to leave.Second, and more broadly, it looks like this pretty much spells the beginning of the end. American dominance, particularly of the economic variety, is drawing to a close. Get used to living in poverty.
Speaking of ITZ...
The Truth Wins - Global food reserves have reached their lowest level in almost 40 years
For six of the last eleven years the world has consumed more food than it has produced. This year, drought in the United States and elsewhere has put even more pressure on global food supplies than usual. As a result, global food reserves have reached their lowest level in almost 40 years. Experts are warning that if next summer is similar to this summer that it could be enough to trigger a major global food crisis. At this point, the world is literally living from one year to the next. There is simply not much of a buffer left.ITZ is only going to make things worse. From lower rainfall away from the equator thanks to it coming in the form of snow, which doesn't aerate the soil well, as well as lower evaporation, there's also the problem of a shorter growing season.
Your rice, PACK IT.
Sultan Knish - The good life.
Conservatism never wins. It loses. It comes to be associated with slick empty men and women who smile a lot and lie a lot. And that in the long run is far more devastating than the occasional senate candidate who says something horrible or idiotic. Candidates like Mitt Romney are more damaging than a hundred Todd Akins because they fix the image of a soulless party that cares about nothing and no one.Jim - Dark Enlightenment and the Endarkenment.
The Endarkenment.Hyper Report - Going after children.
Plain meaning: The coming dark age of the west, and perhaps the world, the rise of magical and superstitious thinking, for example Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey, the transformation of science into theocracy, the stagnation of an increasing number of technologies.Ironic meaning: A sarcastic reference to the enlightenment, implying that it blinded men, rather than enabling them to see. Roger Bacon and Galileo popularized rationality, but Voltaire and Rousseau abandoned rationality. That the planets go around the sun follows from the evidence. That all men are created equal defies the evidence.
MSNBC’s New World Order skank, Melissa Harris-Perry, states that children do not belong to parents, but to the community, or the state. Seriously, what mental hospital do these deranged freaks come from? Hey, Melissa, go read Animal Farm, you might, although unlikely, learn something.
