OK, so what happened to the "Bank Holiday"?

Just a couple months ago, we here at the DP were fretting about a possible 3-day bank closure ala 1929. Can anyone here explain why the deadline given by the "experts" has come-and-gone, but all is status quo?
Like you, I saw the warning signs and I sounded the alarm to my friends and loved ones....now, once again, I'm the paranoid kook. Perhaps we are all jumping the gun on such things...the sky isn't falling as we fear it is....?

The more predictions are being made

The more will prove to be false.

I used to buy into certain specific predictions about this or that happening on a certain day or month, I predicted myself that George Bush wouldn't step down from office and would impose martial law. I was kind of dissapointed that nothing happened, because I felt very stupid with my prediction. Ever since, I've been more cautious with these claims.

Didn't Gerald Celente claim that 2009 would be the year that the whole economy would collapse? I think it probably won't happen, but I am still convinced that he is generally right with his analysis about the economy.

I thought the economy would

I thought the economy would collapse this year, but this year is almost done and I was wrong. It will happen you can see things getting worse rapidly, however I will never put a date on it again because we lose credibility and gain nothing making such predictions.

Warnings are funny that way....

I'll bet none of your friends moved any money out of the bank on your warning, did they?

Had the banks closed (and they still may) they would have been just as bad off as if you never told them. So, pay them no mind. If you think you're weird because of your beliefs and seek vindication here - you're forgiven.

Prudence pays off in the end, I promise.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

Tomorrow

The bank holiday will take place tomorrow, but only last one day. :)

Predictions are only ever right in retrospect

Funny how that works.

There wasn't a bank holiday,

however, the FED continues to prop up the dollar. The problem is that they do this with fiat money and the US citizen is the one who pays. It is past time for an audit.

Ohhhhh..But

If You're Not Paranoid, You're Not Paying Attention..

many predictions

few based on sound info or knowledge.. always hazardous to the mind...

One day you will be

vindicated and your friends will come to you and think your a genius, so from kook to genius. What a difference a day makes.

A broken clock is still correct twice a day.

Keep sounding the paranoid alarm. It will be right eventually (and then it will be wrong) and then it will be right again (and then it will be wrong a second time) and so on.

same here. i let some close friends and family know and now... nothing.

Electronic Money - No Need for a Holiday

With Electronic Money they do not need a holiday. The 1930 thing was done to get real physical gold out of the market so they had to shut down the real world banks. Now they make a statement on TV and our FRN have a new value becase they get pegged to something.

they could devalue the dollar officially by going to a new gold standard 5000 FRN = 1 oz Gold.

They will not do that however - they want the dollar to make a steady significant decline over the next few years.

I went through the same

I went through the same experience, except I only discussed this with other like minded friends who know what the real truth is. I received some emails from friends who work in the banking industry and the explanation I heard from them was that China got wind of this and told Geitner to get his butt over to China. He did in August and they cancelled the event becuase China ranted very loudly.

Other than that, that makes sense to me. However, one cannot deny the US Dollar is toast and the economy is teetering on the dege of a depression. In my area it is not clearly visible yet, but every month, there are more vacant strip malls. When the Commercial mortgages and the second wave of home owner defaults hot the markets, I predict it will be very obvious that we are in a Depression and the stock market will have a second crash by early spring of 2010. It should be noted I am not a professional stock market/economist analysist. None of the major brokerage house predidcted what happened last fall/winter either.

You're right, the danger's passed. Long live the dollar!

prepare for the worst and

prepare for the worst and hope for the best... O have a very close friend who just started working for a large bank.. She has been asking me why they are talking about a bank holiday.. she does not understand what they are talking about behind closed doors... so do as you will.

Welcome to the loony bin. I

Welcome to the loony bin. I too am a paranoid kook according to friends and family that I also warned about the bank holiday. I just laugh and tell them they are lucky I was so wrong.
