Consumer debt rose $20.4 billion in November and $19.3 billion in December of 2011. Consumer debt will continue to go up, and as crazy as it might sound, this tragedy is being hailed as a good economic indicator by the neo-con elite. Steve Forbes, speaking on FOX News, said that the rise in consumer debt showed that everybody had went back to work and were now spending borrowed money on lavish new lifestyles in response to the new boom.
I can’t mince my words on this one. This is a crock of shit and that treasonous son of a bitch Steve Forbes knows it is a crock of shit. Consumer debt is going up because the cost of everything we need to live is going up and we are having to borrow just to survive, as Steve Forbes and his international elitist brethren and sisteren continue to pile the wealth they are extorting from the American people. These elitist bastards have control of our natural resources and are using our wealth to complete the destruction of our country and our enslavement.
If you still have money in the bank or in a 401K you are the next mark. The elitists tried a couple of quick schemes to trick you into putting your life’s earnings into the carnie run stock market. (Bailouts for Europe) When those schemes failed, they decided to go for broke, that is to say for you becoming broke through the transfer of your wealth into their pockets.
There are very few accounts in the US being calculated in black ink these days. The Social Security account has about $3 trillion worth of wealth in it. Private saving accounts in the United States equate to about $15 trillion. That is $18 trillion the elite have not managed to steal yet, and they want it.
Why do they want it? Because once they have it they think they will have put we the American people in our place. You see wealth represents political power and the elite are basically pissed off at the fact that the American people of the American race have managed to maintain enough political power, hence wealth, to threaten their monopoly with the Ron Paul Revolution. They think that if they can just break us we will somehow morph into the complicit slave society they crave as an affirmation of their supremacy over us.
The elitists’ arrogance will be their undoing.
People, all we have to do to put a stop to this outrage is to take back control of our natural resources and shut down the fraudulent Ponzi scheme known as the Federal Reserve. If anyone is stupid enough to dump their wealth into the stock market, basing their decision upon the tidal wave of lies coming out of the mainstream propaganda machine, you will deserve what you get, or more aptly, what you will lose.
God bless this Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.

Henry, I thought you might find this article interesting:
Trial of Midwest militia members begins in Mich.
Seven members of a Midwest militia accused of plotting to overthrow the government are set to stand trial, where jurors will decide whether federal authorities prevented an attack by homegrown extremists or simply made too much of the boasts of weekend warriors who had pledged to “take our nation back.”
Opening statements were set for Monday once a jury was seated in the trial of members of the Hutaree militia, who are charged with conspiring to commit sedition, or rebellion, as well as weapon crimes.
Following the March 2010 arrests in southern Michigan, Ohio and Indiana, U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said the time had come for authorities to “take them down.” An undercover agent had recorded the group’s leader, David Stone, saying the militia needed to “start huntin'” police soon.
But since their capture, only one of nine people charged has struck a plea deal, an unusually low number in a case with so many defendants. Their attorneys have maintained a consistent stance: The anti-government talk was simply colorful yet aimless bluster akin to frustrated pals drowning sorrows around a campfire.
“I’m going to fight it tooth and nail,” David Stone’s wife and co-defendant, Tina Mae Stone, said during a break in jury selection last week. “It was just a bunch of good ol’ boys out to have fun. We did survival stuff. I did it mostly to spend time with my husband. People tell me, `good luck.’ I don’t need luck. I’ve got God on my side.”
The militia, which was based in Michigan’s Lenawee County, prepared for survival in case of domestic chaos or an attack on the United States, attorneys Todd Shanker and Richard Helfrick said in a court filing. They noted the group even had a website and promoted its weekend outings.
“Regardless of the charges in the indictment, there is no dispute that the aims of the Hutaree militia included the free exercise of their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights, including freedom of speech, association, assembly and the right to bear arms,” said the lawyers, who represent David Stone Jr.
The government describes the Hutaree, which the militia claimed means “Christian warriors,” as an anti-government group committed to fighting authorities who belong to a so-called “New World Order.” The defendants are accused of conspiring to someday ambush and kill a police officer, then attack the funeral procession with explosives and trigger a broader revolt against the U.S. government.
“The court will hear testimony and examine evidence concerning this particular group’s hatred for, and desire to do physical harm to, law enforcement,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Graveline said.
The government has more than 100 hours of audio and video, including the recording of David Stone, 47, apparently talking about police.
“I think we gotta just start huntin’ `em here pretty soon. … They’re easy to find, they’re sittin’ alongside the road and they got these red and blue lights on top of their car,” he said.
A co-defendant, Michael Meeks of Manchester, Mich., replied: “It’s like a Kmart super special or whatever.”
But some conversations were sprinkled with laughter and a mix of subjects, including strippers and drawing Hitler mustaches on photos of state troopers. Agents seized machine guns, unregistered rifles, ammunition and parts for improvised explosive devices.
The government’s case got off to a rough start in 2010, when U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts released the nine until trial under strict conditions. The government swiftly appealed but then agreed that four could go home wearing electronic monitors. An appeals court ultimately ordered the other five to remain locked up, including David Stone.
The government relied on an undercover agent inside the group and an informant. But the informant comes with warts: He pleaded guilty in state court to firing a gun during a dispute with his wife and also attempted suicide. Another witness who was married to a Hutaree member not charged in the case attempted suicide and told a grand jury she’s prone to panic attacks.
“How often do American citizens get charged with sedition or inciting discontent and resistance against big government? Heck, most citizens are discontented with the government,” said Lloyd Meyer, a Chicago lawyer and former terrorism prosecutor. “In this case, no one pulled a trigger and no one got hurt. … A jury could believe that the feds went after this group with a meat cleaver instead of a scalpel.”
But Alan Gershel, a former prosecutor who teaches at Cooley Law School in suburban Detroit, said the allegations in the indictment seem more than goofy talk.
“There was planning. There was acquisition of firearms. There was training,” he said. “Do you have to wait until the first shot is fired? You have to choose the moment of time when things go beyond chatter. That’s what the government is aiming at here.”
Joshua Clough of Blissfield, Mich., is the only defendant to make a deal with prosecutors. He pleaded guilty in December to illegal use of a firearm, faces a mandatory five-year prison sentence and could be called as a witness to testify against the Hutaree.
Besides the Stones and Meeks, the other defendants are Joshua Stone of Lenawee County; Thomas Piatek of Whiting, Ind.; and Kristopher Sickles of Sandusky, Ohio. Jacob Ward of Huron, Ohio, will have a separate trial. Besides conspiracy charges, all face at least one firearm charge and some have more.
