Some of you may have been following my posts on other boards. Some of you don't know me from your supermarket checker. This is okay. I am going to start the mother of all financial threads on this site if no one objects. And I am going to post in the next day or so many, many links so that most of you can do some very shocking home-work and catch up on what is really going on. So for the first post on this thread... We are approaching a financial Rubicon. A line in the sand so to speak. At the end of this month and through the end of October and into november... this all marks the end of the fiscal year. And the bad numbers are starting to pour in. Everything you have been seeing and reading in the news papers is propaganda. It is window dressing. It is happy-happy, joy-joy talk to keep the pumps running in the bilges of the Titanic. A week or so ago China has told its financial institution that "they may" default on their dervatives contracts if they wish to do so. The are also begining the process of repatriation of thier gold stock stored overseas, and returning them to China. They are in the process of slowing duming their US treasuries and bonds (slowly and quietly)... and from the articles I have read to do so now means that you must take a 40% loss on the face value. Ditto with other countries hold US debt instruments. And when the damn breaks--it will be like a financial Jones Town flood hitting the USA. The USA, in fact, may not even survive as the USA--not the USA as we know it now. During an interview with Ron Paul, Glenn Beck played a clip of George Sorros being asked what is going to happen financially (the outcome) of the current mess, and Sorros is quoted on camera saying that, "it will resemble what happened to the Soviet Union" very soon. In another on camera interview a couple weeks before this he was asked does he know "what will happen to the dollar?" And Sorros smiled and said, "yes, but I can't tell you" --then he walked away. So I am going to start off this thread with this short video to warm you up to the subject. If you don't like what you see--let me know fast. The information that will follow in this thread will most likely be very disturbing. It will pull you completely out of your comfort zones. It will challenge your reality. I am not going to start a new thread with each new bit of news that published. It's going to be tacked onto the end of this thread--mainly to help the mods keep track of things, and also not to run over other people and slide their stuff down the posting que. So I just finished watching this vid. It is somewhat disturbing.... YouTube- CAUTION: Monetary System Collapse Supporting previoius links and vids will be posted soon.
