    Hmm, I watched it. I don't really have a lot to say about it though.

    I don't understand how all of this fearmongering is supposed to help anybody or anything.

    Sounds spot on to me.

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    I actually agree somewhat. I would have more respect for these guys if they gave the big picture, which is based on the fact that this is all being done intentionally for a reason. These guys like Celente seem to peddle the incompetence theory a little too much and act like something good might come of this, or that our so-called "leaders" might wake up and do the right thing (which isn't going to happen). The fear-mongering doesn't help, either.

    It should be obvious to people at this point that things are bad and are going to get much worse. It's no secret.

    I believe that many people don't realize just how bad it is and how bad it is going to get.
    Here's another clip where Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania lets out some truth on what transpired that those in the Washington are keeping tight lipped about. Quote from the clip.
    "I think it's important to inform that lady (the american people) as to what where the facts."

    Some may think i'm over reacting but i've started stocking non perishable food items.

    I love that clip. I make to much money to get food stamps.. Oh yeah.. I know that.
    We all make to much money to apply for energy assistance too, Low cost health care..
    I was told I would be better off getting fired, having the state take care of my medical and go back to work. Thats insane..

    well,IMO, the facts are they are just prolonging the problem. there will be a end to the financial system as we know it and there is nothing they can do about it..

    if he wants to tell the people the facts he should tell them there was over one quadrillion dollars in derivatives out there when this started,there is somewhere between 600 and 750 trillion dollars left to vaporize in the system,since this started 40% of the worlds wealth has vaporized and we havent even hit the half way point.

    it cant be saved as is and all they are doing is prolonging the pain.

    oh yes, i would recommend folks to stock up on all essentials,not just food.

    its going to be a ugly summer..and i dont even wanna think about next winter.

    According to Celente the bail outs not only prolong it but exacerbate it. Thank you for turning me on to him. I had seen him on some media but never really paid much attention to him and didn't know much about him. I was checking out his site today at:

    I couldn't agree more, the lobbyest, good buddy, government/big business corporate welfare system is exactly what got us into this mess in the first place and now they think that the same shit is the their only option to get out of the mess. I agree with Celente, and you, that it may postpone the inevitable for a little while, but it's going to make it worse when it happens.

    We appear to have a similar outlook which doesn't surprise me seeing your a hippie hillbilly. My stock all came down from the hills and there were many meals i ate as a youngster where everything on the table was produced within a couple hundred feet of the house.

    My first place, when i moved out of the house, was a leanto in the timber on the side of about a 6 acre lake. I did a year in that leanto including the whole of a cold winter with more deep snow than usual. I feed myself pretty well with bank lines and a single shot 410 shotgun i got for Christmas when i was 14. The main problem i had with food was trying to figure out how to keep the raccoons out of it, which i never fully accomplished. Looking back i guess i got enough to keep us all, me and the raccoons fat and sassy.

    Gerald Celente: Food Riots, Tax Rebellions By 2012
    Live Leak ^

    Food Riots, Tax Rebellions By 2012...Trend forecaster, renowned for being accurate in the past, says

    The man who predicted the 1987 stock market crash and the fall of the Soviet Union is now forecasting revolution in America, food riots and tax rebellions - all within four years, while cautioning that putting food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying Christmas gifts by 2012.

    Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute, is renowned for his accuracy in predicting fut ure world and economic events, which will send a chill down your spine considering what he told Fox News this week.

    Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts.

    "We're going to see the end of the retail Christmas....we're going to see a fundamental shift take place....putting food on the table is going to be more important that putting gifts under the Christmas tree," said Celente, adding that the situation would be "worse than the great depression".

    "America's going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for," said Celente, noting that people's refusal to acknowledge that America was even in a recession highlights how big a problem denial is in being ready for the true scale of the crisis.

    Celente, who successfully predicted the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis, the subprime mortgage collapse and the massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar, told UPI in November last year that the following year would be known as "The Panic of 2008," adding that "giants (would) tumble to their deaths," which is exactly what we have witnessed with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and others. He also said that the dollar would eventually be devalued by as much as 90 per cent.

    The consequence of what we have seen unfold this year would lead to a lowering in living standards, Celente predicted a year ago, which is also being borne out by plummeting retail sales figures.

    The prospect of revolution was a concept echoed by a British Ministry of Defence report last year, which predicted that within 30 years, the growing gap between the super rich and the middle class, along with an urban underclass threatening social order would mean, "The world's middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest," and that, "The middle classes could become a revolutionary class."

    In a separate recent interview, Celente went further on the subject of revolution in America.

    "There will be a revolution in this country," he said. "It’s not going to come yet, but it’s going to come down the line and we’re going to see a third party and this was the catalyst for it: the takeover of Washington, D. C., in broad daylight by Wall Street in this bloodless coup. And it will happen as conditions continue to worsen."

    "The first thing to do is organize with tax revolts. That’s going to be the big one because people can’t afford to pay more school tax, property tax, any kind of tax. You’re going to start seeing those kinds of protests start to develop."

    "It’s going to be very bleak. Very sad. And there is going to be a lot of homeless, the likes of which we have never seen before. Tent cities are already sprouting up around the country and we’re going to see many more."

    "We’re going to start seeing huge areas of vacant real estate and squatters living in them as well. It’s going to be a picture the likes of which Americans are not going to be used to. It’s going to come as a shock and with it, there’s going to be a lot of crime. And the crime is going to be a lot worse than it was before because in the last 1929 Depression, people’s minds weren’t wrecked on all these modern drugs – over-the-counter drugs, or crystal meth or whatever it might be. So, you have a huge underclass of very desperate people with their minds chemically blown beyond anybody’s comprehension."
