We're in strange times now and it will probably intensify. When you are engaged in a massive effort to keep the dollar as the world's reserve currency all types of tactics will be employed. The CONfidence must not be lost or the game is over. I watched Asian women today buying Louis Vuitton purses at 3K a purse for the Chinese New Year like they were buying a hamburger. No big deal. In every high end shop there were virtually NO Americans, but they did have Asian buyers. The times they are a changin'. No Europeans either BTW.
I listen to the CNBS pundits explaining how the increase in payroll taxes will have no effect on the Target and Wal Mart shoppers buying but it MIGHT have some effect on the higher end department stores. REALLY???? Where do they find these clueless POS.
Most of your have your own compartmentalized worlds and that may be very healthy for you. I travel between several worlds and I talk to a lot of different people in these worlds. I also frantically scan information on a lot of sites and I do NOT see the turnaround that some of you believe is here. In fact I am seeing a fatalistic acceptance of much of what we discuss here. A lack of morality, a lack of fundamental laws, the rise of the state, the loss of the individual, and the lack of a future. These are not the foundation for this country to move out of this morass. I hope as some of you have stated that we find that "Next great invention or energy force" and we surge into the 21rst Century. Instead I expect to see more NDAA/Patriot Act/ Domestic Drone control/ Fema camps/ TSA/ Homeland Security/ Militarized police/ gl all .....charts later tonight
