I not going out on a limb by saying the bill HR1424 is an apocalyptic fail.
Check this out from Reuters:
We face extreme danger. Unless there is immediate intervention on every front by all the major powers acting in concert, we risk a disintegration of global finance within days. Nobody will be spared, unless they own gold bars.
The lesson of the 1930s is that any country trying to reflate in isolation will be punished. The crisis will ricochet from one economy to another until every one is crippled. We are seeing it play again in this drama as our leaders fail to rise above their narrow, parochial agendas.
Just fucking ducky. As they say on those moronic medical dramas, "note the time, brain death has occurred." I'm calling it, the crash cart of HR1424 has more pork in it than my favorite breakfast. Even the smart minority, i.e. preppers & survivalists, have no clue on how bad it's going to get. We can hope for the best, plan for the worst but let's face it - you don't know your at the bottom of the barrel until you start climbing out.
Although I don't know FerFAL from Adam, as the saying goes, I trust his assessment of what we are going to see as we slide into third world status. Please take some time and read what he has to say.
