Fortunately for our overlords, we have television, the opiate of the masses. The economy's too much trouble to think about, but look who's on Dancing With the Stars tonight!

If the wealth were stolen from the populace all at once, yes there would be hell to pay. But it's being trickled out by an IV line. Like if you were thrown in a pot of water with the temp slowly being turned up. As if, nvm, enough metaphors.

Well just like any rain cloud its coming from us first, then when it falls we don't see it till it hits the bottom. By then we are left out to dry.

We're witnessing the largest transfer of wealth in human history. It's mostly out of our pockets and into the pockets of banksters.

Remember the fury with which America's taxpayers opposed the first bailouts? Then Congress went ahead and did what they were told by their owners. And--the important part--the vast majority of the reps who voted for the bailouts were re-elected.

point blank aim every time you respond. True indeed.

Well, what are we going to do about it? Who takes the lead? How far can you go before they accuse you of homegrown terrorism and lock you up? Individual trouble makers would be singled out and dealt with quickly. Violence won't work, they have bigger guns. Economic protests or tax revolts won't work, they'll print as much money as they need. So, what will it take to restore power to the people and halt the agenda of the elite? I may puke if anyone suggests voting as the solution. Just a warning.

I would like to suggest that voting is probably the solution.

Now that we have that out of the way, there's apparently nothing we can do as a country. Our overlords aren't going to give up their power--why should they? And as a people, we can't even get on the same page in order to stage an effective revolt of any kind.

So what's the solution? Take steps to protect yourself, as an individual and as a family. What steps? That's why I'm so fixated upon the inflection point where our pouring trillions down the well turns this deflation into inflation, because that's where our strategies will have to turn on a dime. But so far, deflation it is, and even China--the world's most overheated economy--is getting in the mix now.
