(NaturalNews) What's ahead for 2011 - 2012? This time in human history promises to bring forth more changes than any other similar duration of time known to our civilization. I believe the changes that will occur in the next two years will rock the foundations of our economies, governments and belief systems. In the end, after considerable turmoil, I see a great expansion of human consciousness and a maturing of the human race. Here are the details...
More people growing their own food
Beginning in 2011 and continuing for many years beyond, we will see an explosion in the number of people growing their own food. People see the big trends in the food supply fast approaching: GMO contamination of crops, the loss of local food production due to FDA interference, the crackdown on small farmers, and even disruptions in the global food supply.
As people realize the importance of having their own home-grown source of food, we will see a surge in backyard gardens, food storage and in-home production methods such as sprouting and food dehydrating.
We will see a strong "back to basics" interest surge leading up to 2012, with many people choosing to move out of high-density cities (or even high-density nations) and seek self-reliance in more rural areas.
Republicans should prepare for a "showdown" with President Obama and congressional Democrats over raising the debt ceiling, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said Monday.
DeMint, a de-facto leader of Senate conservatives and many Tea Party senators, called for an all-out battle early this year, when Congress will face a tough vote to legally authorize the government to take on more debt.
"I think we should resist that. We need to have a showdown, at this point, that we're not going to increase our debt ceiling anymore. We are going to cut things necessary to stay within the current levels, which is over $14 trillion," DeMint told the conservative magazine Human Events in an interview released Monday. "So this needs to be a big showdown."
You sure don't here about this stuff on CNN....do you? This entire nightmare is just being swept under the rug....And by the way...I was just listening to CNN about the 5000 dead birds. They have experts saying it was stress from New Years eve fireworks...causing them to have a heart attack. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? OMG...We are sooooo screwed if the public believes this.
From the article...
One such crew she encountered had brown spots on their bodies. Her friend on the same crew currently has bruising across her stomach, she said.
"It didn't look like someone punched her in the stomach," Arnesen explained. "It looked like the blood vessels underneath the skin surface were literally breaking and the blood was slowly coming to the surface."
"People are getting sick all over the Gulf Coast," she added. "If people who live here can get sick, then people who come here can very well get sick."

This is from the article....make sure you go to the article and watch the video. This guy is starting to talk like "Bush" about TARP.
"This is not a game," Austan Goolsbee, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said. "You know, the debt ceiling is not something to toy with."
The government could default on its obligations if it hits the current $14.3 trillion limit on borrowing. Some Republicans are expected to hold the debt ceiling hostage in exchange for tough spending cuts.
"If we hit the debt ceiling, that's essentially defaulting on our obligations, which is totally unprecedented in American history," Goolsbee predicted. "The impact on the economy would be catastrophic. That would be a worse financial economic crisis than anything we saw in 2008."
"As I say that's not a game. I don't see why anybody's talking about playing chicken with the debt ceiling. If we get to the point where you've damaged the full faith and credit of the United States, that would be the first default in history caused purely by insanity."

A Foreign Policy of Freedom
Paul is a shrewder politician than he’s given credit for. Early on, he branded himself "the taxpayer’s best friend." When, in the early 1980s, his isolationism threatened to cost him his seat, Paul came up with a showstopper. In a videotaped campaign ad mailed to Republicans throughout his district, Ronald Reagan offered this endorsement: "Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense.
This essay, just posted on my website, can be reached at: http://www.meehanreports.com/antiwarconservatives.html.
It deals with the antiwar views of Dr. Paul and other leading antiwar conservatives, such as Justin Raimondo, Bill Kauffman, Patrick Buchanan. It also suggests ways in which antiwar conservatives might be more effective.
When I hear someone say that soldiers "defend our freedom," my immediate response is to gag. I think the last time American soldiers actually fought for the freedom of Americans was probably the Revolutionary War — or maybe the War of 1812, if you want to be generous. Every war since then has been for nothing but to uphold a system of power, and to make the rich folks even richer.
But I can think of one exception. If there’s a soldier anywhere in the world who’s fought and suffered for my freedom, it’s Pfc. Bradley Manning.
Manning is frequently portrayed, among the knuckle-draggers on right-wing message boards, as some sort of spoiled brat or ingrate, acting on an adolescent whim. But that’s not quite what happened, according to Johann Hari.
Manning, like many young soldiers, joined up in the naive belief that he was defending the freedom of his fellow Americans. When he got to Iraq, he found himself working under orders "to round up and hand over Iraqi civilians to America’s new Iraqi allies, who he could see were then torturing them with electrical drills and other implements." The people he arrested, and handed over for torture, were guilty of such "crimes" as writing "scholarly critiques" of the U.S. occupation forces and its puppet government. When he expressed his moral reservations to his supervisor, Manning "was told to shut up and get back to herding up Iraqis."
Mea culpa: For the past two years, I've been struggling with a nicotine addiction, something I recently shared with legalizeliberty via email.
I was a heavy-duty smoker starting in 1990, when I picked up the habit in Japan. I smoked for twelve years, until 2002, when I finally decided to put it away for good.
I was quit for six years, until August 2008, when I picked up the habit again at the RNC. Uggh. That was a very stressful period, and a lot of the people I was hanging out with were smoking. It was kind of a perfect storm, and I fell back into my old groove with ease and smoked for the several days in Minneapolis.
When I got back home, I quit...
But then, falling under the mistaken belief that I could smoke and quit at will, and seduced by the intoxicating pull of the nicotine hit, I began to cheat. At first it wasn't often -- usually only if I had a beer (or three), or felt overly stressed. I was smoking American Spirit Ultra Lights, which, if you're a hard core smoker, are a little like smoking tissue paper. They're like nothing. But after all my years of not smoking, they were plenty powerful enough for me.
After many days of looking in depth at my life my lifestyle choices I decided to abandon my drinking ways.
No more organic beer or for that matter any kind of alcohol intake for me.
Thank you Michael Nystrom my wonderful friend for being instrumental in this choice this path I am taking.
I want the whole patriot community on Daily Paul to know how much I love you all.
Each and every one of you.
Keep me in your prayers I need your support and I need to face you every day being sober and strong...
I do not want to be depressed and lethargic because alcohol is flowing in my veins and affects my heart beat and my activism in our sacred struggle for Liberty.
Here I say it out loud -- hope some of you with a similar addiction/s join me.
Love Liberty Peace!
Sending all my love to you, lovely Daily Paul community. Thank you all for everything you do, for protecting the flame of Liberty, keeping it alive, and doing everything in your power to spread it.
Have a safe and wonderful celebration tonight, whatever you choose to do, and may 2011 be your best year ever!
This one is dedicated to Lady Liberty and everyone here at the Daily Paul. Last Night on Earth by Green Day.

Bloomberg Business Year in Review (Dec. 20, 2010-Jan 2, 2011)
ORLANDO, Fl., December 30, 2010 - Ask almost any American, “Who is the most important person in the country?” and more often than not you will receive the answer: The president.
Ask any economist or financier that same question and you might get a different answer: Ben Bernanke.
Ben Bernanke is the chairman of the Federal Reserve. His job is to maintain stable prices (control inflation) and promote maximum employment and production.
That’s quite a job description.
Ask Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) about Bernanke's job he will probably describe it as unconstitutional, unethical and unnecessary.
Paul is a classical conservative with libertarian leanings. a dedicated following, and incredible presence on the web. In addition to his numerous YouTube videos that have millions of views, he has published best-selling books as well. One is titled, “End the Fed.” This book unveils his views on the Federal Reserve and central banking system of the United States.
Paul’s views on the Fed will certainly take center stage in 2011 due to his appointment as Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy; a committee with direct oversight of Mr. Bernanke and the Federal Reserve.
