A fun experience was interrupted by the garish “commercials” pro-Obama anti-Romney 47%.

This brought an interesting thought: is ABC’s website providing propaganda support?

How is that accounted for to its stockholders?

Reported to the FEC?

Just seems odd to me. Revisited the site at random and got the same ad. Considering that the underlying story is “youth oriented” maybe this is an another “thumb on the scale” attempt.

DEUTSCHE BANK: Western Economies Are Screwed, And Investors Face A ‘Disturbing Paradox’
Matthew Boesler | Sep. 20, 2012, 12:54 PM 

*** begin quote ***

In a new report entitled Gold: Adjusting For Zero, Deutsche Bank analysts Daniel Brebner and Xiao Fu paint an incredibly dark picture of the bind the global economy is in right now.

*** end quote ***

Regardless of who wins the US elections, we are faced with a situation of Japan in the 80’s. It will take two generations to unwind the excesses of the past half decade.

  • A rotation out of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency will effectively put the USA politician’s on a fiscal “diet”.
     
  • Gas prices are going to cripple the middle class.
  • The public pensions will cause a crisis as there are far more takers than makers.
  • The “free riders” and those on the dole, including Social Security, will make final discipline impossible.
  • The class warfare will end with the makers, like the Little Red Hen, just stop making; can’t take what isn’t made.

At some point in time, “We, The Sheeple” will recognize that they are being killed; not merely shorn.

That’s when the merry go round stops.

Gold, or nickels, is your best bet to survive.
