Ok, so most figured this weak economy would have blown into full scale depression by now. The Fed has done a nice job delaying the inevitable for three years, by papering over it and hence making the problems worse.

Nothing is any different in terms of trade/tax/monetary/foreign policy. And Im not talking about minor D and R talking points. Im talking about big, sweeping reform. Nowhere to be found.

You cannot stop what is coming down the hill. Whoever gets elected to congress for the next two years is totally screwed. The people are going to be strung along just like they always are, do to massive misinformation from a bought out media.

Whether it takes another year, or they somehow manage to string it out for a few more, the quality of life for many is going to keep going downhill. The only solution is organizing, and three years into this recession the people are still showing no interest in that (Im talking about massive organizing, like 10-15% of the population of your city).

Without organizing, you are stuck with the status quo, which is complacent in this because they, plain and simply, will be taken care of as long as they stay quiet. They are going to do what is best for their families, just as you probably would.

The first step is information taht fights this bought out media. Until the people realize what is happening, there is no point in hope. Educate the masses. When that happens, the solutions will emerge. And the solutions really arent that complicated.

I am with that! I saw something on how Iceland has a large number of women in power now (progressives) And they took the steps required to right the ship, and punish the 1% plutocrat criminals.

More women in politics! They are supposedly more progressive.

In any event!

Replace anti fin reform conservatives with pro fin reform progressives and Protest, pressure, agitate for wall st prosecutions.!

The U.S. business cycle cycles about every five years. Last major down turn was in 2008. We will come due next year. What will make this next down turn really bad, with interest rates so low right now, and no money in the coffers, there is very little to create stimulus to get us through. Yes buckle up folks, stock up on provisions, and save what little cash you might have, cause next year is going to get really rough.....

Very depressing. Not saying it isn't true, and I don't believe in seeing things through "rose-colored glasses", but the market and WS is highly driven by opinion, rumor, and stupid shit like that in addition to any "hard" data the world might be throwing at it. So people need to keep a PMA and a calm head on their shoulders. Can you say "self-fulfilling prophecy"?

Some things can only be swayed by positive thinking so much. I forget who but one guy said of WallSt right before the Great Depression, confidence is everything. And the media at least, still follows this moniker to the day.

We Are The People! We Are The Power! We Are The Justice.. Its Up To US! WE Are All Elected..

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

We are, yes. But we either dont realize it, or dont care. I think the half that doesnt even go to the polls every two years doesnt even care, and the half that go to the polls thinks that all it takes, which is obviously a huge underestimate.

Freaky watching it come to pass, knowing that the FED is going the opposite direction of a cure, and still they continue. They are setting the stage with the 'Fiscal Cliff' as to divert blame away from the FED and onto congress so when the US gets another credit downgrade, the FED can continue printing uninterrupted and free from blame by the public.

The cliff doesn't mean what they make the public fear it means, because on our way out of two wars, of course the military budget could come down with no resulting cuts in workers. But to protect their racket they want you to believe the military budget is the same in war time and peace time.

The cuts to midiscare can also be made because employers are going to start picking up the tab for health insurance so disabled kids will be coming off the mediscare rolls. But they want you to believe that employers providing health insurance won't bring down the participation rates, again because they need the 'Fiscal Cliff' as media cover for the FED's continued devaluation of the dollar.

Keep prices fixed at all costs, even when they are not market justified. These fucks don't believe in the free market, they believe in a Fascist relationship between aristocracy, business, and government. Well, that is if you like Mussolini's definition of Fascism, and I do.

Why aren't you more active on this forum like VQkag2?

[-] -1 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

I am as active as I can be. I have a job, kids, and I like sleep.

I'm sure if disseminating misinformation was my job, I would be on here all hours of the day.

Good morning to you too.

VQkag2 is a forum cyborg, part bot, part idiot.

Mostly idiot.

Bumber stickers are always lame. They stick on there and won't come off. Best thing to do is stay away from them completely.

[-] 0 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

The only bumper sticker I have ever liked said "Relax".

Please refrain from the personal attacks simply because we have a different opinion.

I guess you are intolerant and against free speech?
