A couple of days ago Glenn Beck asked why no-one in the press or on talk shows and individual Americans are not asking why the price of gasoline is on the rise.
I agree with Glenn that this is a very important area of concern. I also agree with Eric Peters’ assessment of the problem and what it could well mean to us.
He mentions the fact that there are far more citizens unemployed than show in the numbers being published on TV and by the main stream media. Theses citizens, and a significant number more that fear they may soon be unemployed are watching the gas prices rise. They are also watching the prices of other commodities they depend on for their way of life and their lives as well. They do not like the way things are going….not one little bit.
I am in the latter group and I am truly worried about the way things are going. I agree with Eric that the circle has just about all its segments and is beginning to close on us all. That includes those that find their position at work, football, basketball, auto racing, family fun, watching TV, and all much more important than paying attention to what is happening at the gas pump and the supermarket. Far be it from their concern the need for their participation in the civics of their communities and the nation.
I wonder how loud then will scream when their TVs go off for most of the day due to restrictions on the use of electricity, there is no water for taking a shower or washing clothes due to restrictions on water use, gasoline is too expensive to use even in a vehicle that gets 40 miles per gallon, when every move you make is tracked by satellite dye to the microchip that has been embedded under the skin of your head (enabled to kill you if you try to remove it), when all financial activities will be through one account bearing your microchip number and the government is co-owner of your accounts with withdrawal privileges, when your wife’s, or daughter’s pregnancies are interrupted because the government says that won’t allow more children, when the government acts to terminate the lives of the very young and the elderly because the population numbers are too high in the World, when the government throws you out of your home and gives it to someone from a developing country because they are of more value to the government than you are, or, when the government cancels your microchip number and you can no longer get money, food, health care, communications, or anything else needed to live?
It could get that bad and worse. If you don’t remember the news videos of the plight of Russians during the cold war when several families had to live in one or two room apartments with little food and plumbing and electric that may or may not work, you had better do some reading and try to look some up on the Internet. The only thing the Russians had plenty of was vodka. Not much food and they had to wait in long lines to try and get it often finding there was nothing left when they got into the government run/owned store (is Wal-Mart positioning itself to be that government run store).
Life will be hell for the poor and working class people in the U.S. when the circle closes. It could all start with the rumored, overnight devaluation of the dollar by 90 percent. Can you imagine that every cent that you have in the bank or invested for education and/or retirement should suddenly be reduced in value by 90 percent. That means you would only have a dime for each dollar you did have. That your income would only be one dime for each dollar you did make. You know that the prices you would have to pay for anything would not be reduced such as insurance, medical care, food, clothing. You know, all those luxuries.
I wonder why we would see an influx of foreigners taking all our countries resources, technology, minerals, oil, and production capabilities. Guess who would be slaving to mine and make all of these things for shipment out of the U.S. Why us American slaves, of course.
Hello feudalism! Good bye freedom. Yes Americans, no more TV sports, no more fancy cars, no nice clothes, no food, limited water, limited electricity, and worst of all, limited life.
I could go on and on. I hope you get the idea. Read, listen, study, research, and learn enough to know what you think and want and then fight like hell to make it happen. Bug the living crap out of those you have elected to represent you in Congress. Make damn sure they know what you like and what you don’t like and what you expect them to do about those things. They work for you. Be the boss!
All the best to all the best, Joe Hollinger, God Bless America!
