Bob Chapman: War and the Global Economic Crisis

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=24672

As the economy stumbles the American standard of living recedes. 44 million people are using food stamps and in one year that figure will be 60 million. Washington and Wall Street say, what me worry? Of course not they are the masters of the universe. We are 24 months into an inflationary depression and it still goes undiscovered. Who cares that the issuance of food stamps is up 80%, as long as the bonuses on Wall Street and in banking continue to flow and bureaucrats get higher and higher salaries and benefits? The high cost of health insurance, no longer affordable to most have increased and Medicaid users are up 17%, as the program costs increased 36%. Those on welfare rose 18%, as costs rose 24%. It is now evident to many that the choice of early retirement in the late 1990s at 52 and 59 years old was a big mistake. Many must now work into their 70s, or starve. Many retirees are forced to reenter the workforce. Recently there were 2,000 job openings and 75,000 people applied. How is that for recovery? The birth/death ratio is bogus and real unemployment is 22%. The economy needs 2 million new jobs a year and that is impossible. Good paying jobs are still being offshored and outsourced. How about the millions without jobs now for years?...

the Dangers, & Prayer,

LL, many terms have been used to describe the situation, scare, threat & peril, all true. Ordinary man has been put to a hard test, and earth is under pollution or jackboots.
There is the constant threat of wars, the engineers of war have immense resources at their disposal. They calculate they can afford it, even profit from it. Therefore they provoke wars. There are reports that al'CIA'da is teasing and testing in southern russia and western china.

Sometime back I read on a DP thread that state & govt is itself a form of religion, with rules and rituals, demanding loyalty, tax and tributes from its citizens. It was very informative and convincing. I felt like copying it but I did not, thinking how much should one keep. Just recalling. Now I realize it is rare to see such articles/comments. It is the modern state governed by govts who are in corp control. The only things they care about are interest, profit, commission, growth, bonus, etc.

As said before, the core of the problem is usury. Modern laws, institutions and scholar$ have failed to restrain or control it. Once that is recognized then you realize the role played by religion and priests in history. The priests always oppose-d the apostles, and at times they can even be violent. The apostles were benefactors of their nations.

The good Dr. is very wise, in being extra careful.
LL, you are into songs, I have a suggestion, - upload on your site a popular song of prayer - I earnestly wish for a prayer, find the right one on video, pls.
Let there be a chorus.

Great Article

How much longer can things go on like this?

For as long as -

Right question from an inquiring and concerned mind. The mischief will continue for as long as the U$ury machine keeps operating and ticking away, it$ the law of motion, till infinity. It needs to be stopped, because it gathers and provides numbers of money to the war-mongers,(whatever may be the type of money,= it is resources). If you go back to the debt-clock and look at it for a while, and then question = what makes it move? Its the motion of time, converted into rotors of $wi$$ watches, now its electronic pulse in computers that calculate interest on time basis.
"Time is money" is the ideology of the $ystem, and war is a necessary tool to promote and protect usury.

To understand this matter see "The confessions of an economic hitman".

Ron Paul president will set the train on the right track

...how many more trees are to be cut down to print more FRN's before change comes?

Thanks for a bump.

None.......

FRN's are printed from paper made of cotton pulp, not wood pulp. This is why they withstand getting wet.
Does not change your point, i just wanted to let you know. It is a very common mis-statement.
