US Economic Collapse – Who will be Left Holding the Bag with Chains around their Ankles?

Gas is back over $4 per gallon and it is not even making the news.  There will be millions more people going into this winter without resources to meet their basic needs as they have become unemployed and exhausted their unemployment benefits.  Despite the pre-election lies being fed to us, the condition of our country is rapidly deteriorating.  And looking at things realistically, the lie cannot be expected to hold any further credence past the November election.

Not if, but when the dollar crashes, tens of millions will become impoverished overnight, many of which have no notion as to how to survive without the infrastructure.   Just how bad is it going to have to get before the people of the United States come to the realization that the party is over?

A prepper has been stranded in Hawaii after being put on the no-fly list, apparently while in flight from San Francisco to Hawaii.  And, again apparently, for no other reason than that he is a prepper.

Look at the implications here.  This government knows we are headed for a crisis that they created and they are coming after those who are preparing?  Shouldn’t they be looking at preppers as good citizens who, if nothing else, will be less of a burden during the crisis?

So what is the real story here?  Well it is simple.  If you are prepared, you are not dependent.  Why is it so necessary for you to be dependent?  Well if you have no food and they tell you to get on the bus to go to the FEMA camp where there is food, I guess you can see the motivation.

This whole ugly business is coming to a head.  The insurgents have pushed the envelope to the limit.  Expect to start seeing more bizarre and illogical acts occurring.  And when you see these bizarre and illogical acts, take a second look and you will find the logic when you find the motive.

I truly feel sorry for those who are not prepared as they are going to find themselves helpless against an enemy absolutely hell bent on killing them.  And it is going to be a while before the water finds a level to the point that the rest of us can start helping them.  I guess this will be their punishment for their complacency to what can only be described as wanton ignorance and institutionalized naivety.

It is not a whole lot of use to keep complaining about the reluctance of our fellow Americans to take measures to save themselves.  It is time to turn our aces and let the chips fall where they may.

God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.

    INSTEAD OF QE-1, QE-2 OR A QE-3, WE MUST ACT QUICKLY TO ENACT THE FOLLOWING SO THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS CAN SAVE AMERICA.

    MILLIONS OF JOBS ARE AVAILABLE NOW; MILLIONS OF MORTGAGES SAVED NOW; MILLIONS OF STUDENT LOAN DEBTS CLEARED NOW; BILLIONS OF SOCIAL SECURITY COSTS SAVED NOW; AND THOUSANDS OF VETERANS THANKED NOW-INCLUDING HOMELESS VETERANS!

    The Social Security system, Medicare, Medicaid and many state social programs are at dire risk of imploding; employment has stagnated and is growing more critical; military personnel may or may not be coming home due to the lack of employment and supports for veterans; and current high school and college students face a bleak future of unemployment and debt.

    To relieve the pressure, prevent the collapse of a once vibrant and beneficial system of assistance to those in need; and to encourage support for those who have worked hard to support others, the time has come to initiate the following ECONOMIC FREEDOM AND STABILITY ACT.

    AN INVEST IN AMERICA (I AM AMERICA) – SOLUTION

    Please find below a simplistic compilation of suggestions for fixing America’s economy. Instead of giving any further bail-outs of billions of dollars to the banks, financial houses, or corporations that will squander the money on obscene and unearned bonuses without giving any thought to using those funds for the betterment of the poor and middle class, the following plans are presented instead:

    THE ECONOMIC FREEDOM AND STABILITY ACT (EFSA)

    PLAN A:
    There are 50-60 million baby boomers who remain employed in the work force. We suggest that the United States government offer each of those employed baby boomers $1 million dollars each, tax free, as severance to retire from their employment within 30 days of receipt of the $1 million dollar severance with the following stipulations:

    I. The new EFSA retiree MUST cease their current employment and not hire on as an employee anywhere in America ever again. 50-60 million job openings will occur – Younger potential employees and college graduates are then hired. Unemployment costs saved and employment opportunities will immediately be resolved. (The new retirees CAN start a business, and they can eventually hire new employees too).

    II. The new EFSA retiree MUST buy a new AMERICAN made energy saving, green rated automobile. With 50-60 million new American made vehicles ordered the auto industry will once again become stable and solvent with jobs and needed resources enjoying economic growth- Employment, Environment and Auto Industry fixed.

    III. The new EFSA retiree MUST either buy an American house/condo or pay off their existing mortgage thereby increasing jobs, and stabilizing the housing and mortgage issues – Employment and Housing Crisis fixed.

    IV. The new EFSA retiree MUST purchase a life insurance policy to insure that those who depend on them for support will be taken care of in the event of untimely death or medical setback. –Dependents and Caregiver Coverage Fixed.

    V. The new EFSA retiree MUST purchase and carry yearly medical, dental and vision coverage for themselves and their dependents, decreasing healthcare costs and burdens for the nation, and ensure continued wellbeing and quality of life. – Financial, Employment and Healthcare Coverage Fixed.

    VI. The new EFSA retiree MUST forfeit all future Social Security, Medicare, and/or Medicaid benefits decreasing trillions of dollars of social welfare costs; eliminating the financial burdens on the coming generations, and encouraging self-determination. Budget Deficit fixed.

    *** Certainly even some of the noted suggestions warrant further consideration, or the opportunity to be further elaborated on and implemented. Such an economic and stability program could be in effect by the end of 2011 without much financial investment considering the billions of taxpayer dollars being wasted each minute as you read this proposal.

    AMERICAN VETERAN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF SACRAFICE ACT (AOS)

    PLAN B:

    1. 20-40 ACRES OF AMERICAN LAND AND AN AMERICAN MADE TRUCK (NEW OR USED) WILL BE PROVIDED ALL HONORABLY DISCHARGED VETERANS.

    2. VETERANS MUST GROW SOMETHING FOR THE GOOD OF THE COMMUNITY ON THE LAND (FOOD, LIVESTOCK,
    WILD GAME, PRODUCTS, ETC)

    3. VETERANS CANNOT SELL, CONVEY, USE AS COLLATERAL OR TRANSFER OWNERSHIP OF THE LAND
    FOR 20 YEARS. THE TRUCK CAN BE SOLD OR OWNERSHIP CONVEYED AFTER FIVE YEARS.

    4. THE LAND CAN BE INHERITED BY DEPENDENTS OF THE VETERAN BUT CANNOT BE SOLD, CONVEYED, USED AS COLLATERAL OR TRANSFERRED OUT OF THE FAMILY FOR 20 YEARS.

    5. VETERANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR STEWARDSHIP OF THE LAND TO INCLUDE ALL WASTE CREATED ON THE LAND.

    6. THE LAND CANNOT BE A BLIGHT ON THE COMMUNITY, OR THE LAND CAN BE RECOVERED BY THE GOVERNMENT AS FORFEITURE FOR FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE LAND AS IT WAS INTENDED TO BE USED.

    With the implementation of the SEVERANCE AND VETERAN ACTS, America’s students will see a brighter future to invest their efforts and talents while creating plentiful jobs without fear of increasing the unemployment ranks.

    STUDENTS TO PROFESSIONALS ACT – (STP)

    PLAN C:

    THIS PROGRAM WAS CREATED TO CONNECT HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDENTS TO EMPLOYERS WHO WILL ACT AS BENEFACTORS, MENTORS AND INVESTORS IN THE STUDENTS’ FUTURE PROFESSIONAL AMBITIONS BY FUNDING A STUDENT’S EDUCATION OR SKILL TRAINING ON A 1:1 RATIO:

    ONE YEAR OF EMPLOYMENT WITH THE SPONSORING COMPANY FOR ONE YEAR OF COLLEGE OR SKILL TRAINING.

    1. A SPONSORED STUDENT WILL WORK SIX TO EIGHT WEEKS OF EACH SUMMER ATER THEIR SOPHOMORE YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL UNTIL THEY GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL, AS AN INTERN WITH THE EMPLOYER-SPONSOR WHO HAS CONTRACTED TO INVEST IN THE STUDENT’S COLLEGE OR TRADE SCHOOL TUITION.

    2. ONCE THE STUDENT GRADUATES FROM THE COLLEGE OR TRADE SCHOOL OF THEIR CHOICE, THE STUDENT WILL WORK ONE YEAR FOR THE EMPLOYER-SPONSOR FOR EVERY YEAR THE EMPLOYER-SPONSOR FUNDED THAT STUDENT’S EDUCATION OR TRAINING.

    3. SAID EMPLOYMENT WILL BE AT A COMPETITIVE RATE OF PAY, WAGE, SALARY AS DETERMINED BY THE MARKET AT THE TIME OF COMPLETION OF COLLEGE OR TRAINING.

    4. CONTRACT AND NEGOTIATIONS REGARDING COLLEGE/TRAINING TUITION/EXPENSES AND EMPLOYER REIMBURSEMENT WILL BE DEFINED BY ARBITRATION AND STANDARDS DETERMINED BY THE DEPT OF LABOR.

    *** THIS PROGRAM WILL CREATE AN AMERICAN TRANSITIONAL VIABLE WORK FORCE WITH PRACTICAL WORK EXPERIENCE FOR PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYERS-SPONSORS TO ACCESS AND MENTOR.

    *** THIS PROGRAM WILL CREATE JOBS AND DIRECTLY CONNECT THE WORKFORCE WITH THE INDUSTRIES IN NEED OF HUMAN CAPITAL.

    *** THIS PROGRAM WILL ENABLE STUDENTS TO TRANSITION TO EMPLOYMENT WITH A DIRECT INVESTMENT IN THEIR FUTURE, WHILE BOLSTERING THE ECONOMIC GROWTH OF THE NATION.

    With the implementation of these simple SEVERANCE, VETERAN & STUDENT ACTS, America’s economy, spirit, and future will exponentially expand beyond the nation’s current burdens and constraints, with prosperity and renewed –
    AN INVEST IN AMERICANS (I AM AMERICA) – SOLUTION.

    • US Marine Fighting Tyranny says:

      Hi Strayhorse,

      Your proposals are interesting enough to merit consideration and adjustments,.. but they are all fatally flawed in the same way, which is:

      The destruction of this country is being achieved intentionally.

      They do NOT want solutions,.. they want to continue the controled demolition of America to cause it to fall into its own footprint, just as they did with World TradeCenter Buildings 1,2 & 7 (In fact the WHOLE reason 9/11 occurred was to initiate the “Final Solution” of America)

      There is no solution, no options, no viable mechanism whatsoever to save America that can be carried out as long as the treasonous US Fed Gov’t is allowed to exist and parade itself around as the “Great Defender” of the American peoples,…. they are not. The US Fed Gov’t is the most treachorous, most treasonous, most perfidious, the pyschotic collection of perfidous filth that has ever existed in mankinds history,…bar none.

      The first step IS the solution which is: Time To Aboilish The Treasonous US Fed Gov’t And All Its Criminal Agencies To The Last!

      Only after we have filled out prisons with the traitors, pyschos and criminals both inside and outside our gov’t, after we have siezed ALL their wealth, lands and possessions, after we have freed the press, and after we have published all their crimes,.. in detail,.. only then can we possibly begin to hope to restore this country.

      Until then, any other expectation, desire, route, plan or hope is little more than wishful thinking.

      If you wish to fix a problem,.. then by God you have to actually Fix The Problem!,.. not addressing the symptoms. All symptom curing does is give the appearence of correction when nothing could be further from the truth.

      We MUST abolish, arrest and incarcerate the multitudes of criminals running this gov’t. Until that is done,.. We Have Solved NOTHING.

      Sorry for the bad news,.. other than that, I appauld your notions.

      JD – US Marines – To fix the problem,.. one must first properly identify the problem.

    • chris says:

      i like plan B, as a vet that one would be really nice considering farming is what I want to do in the long run… but I won’t ever hold my breath in regards to any of these ever being implemented.

  2. Anon says:

    Who will be Left Holding the Bag with Chains around their Ankles? American Workers, of course. Why? Because all of the so-called “DEBT”, that the Central Bankers are racking up, at taxpayers’ expense, is just a transfer of wealth, from American workers, to Central Bankers and other corporations, to keep the system afloat, to prop up the STATUS QUO. THE 1% ARE STEALING OUR LABOR/WEALTH, to support themselves, in perpetuity, via overt, and hidden taxation (such as on April 15th, every year, and via massive bailouts, such as in 2008, but also, in hidden forms of taxation, like inflation). Chris Duane calls it the “DEBT-AND-DEATH” Paradigm. He’s right.

  3. DL. says:

    Love your stuff, Mr. Shivley! But I will say that it took you a while to give up on Americans who are too lazy, too stupid, too complacent, too trusting, too immature, too zombie-fied on prozac and other meds, and too deluded to see what is coming…I basically gave up on the 70 percent a long time ago after being personally attacked as a “whacko conspiracy theorist” many years ago (the 90s, in fact). I do hope that number is down to closer to 30 percent…I DO SEE the FEMA camps coming, and I do see at least 30 percent of the population in them. After being so abused by these “smart-alecks” I have far less sympathy for them than you do, and I am a Christ-fearing Christian. God bless you, Mr. Shivley, from the Something Happening Here blog.

  4. NC says:

    “the lie cannot be expected to hold any further credence past the November election.”

    I don’t even know why they are waiting until the election. Both are the same and both will do the same and not change a damn thing. I mean even both of their campaign slogans are almost identical. “Hope and CHANGE” and “CHANGE you can believe in”. How much more identical can you get? At least Ron Paul’s slogan was effective, immediate and to the point with no bullshit added. “Restore America NOW”. No need to change. It basically says, “We are just going to take America back and do it! No bullshit.” I guess the sheeple are still hanging on to their naiveness in hopes that if Mitt Romney is elected, things will “change”. I can’t imagine why in the world they would think that, but that’s just me.

  5. Mel says:

    Bailouts are nothing more than paying someone to keep their mouth shut.

    The weight of knowing is difficult.

    People on the lower rung of society (not all) know something is coming and they are scared and I am scared for them. Those are the people who can be reached far more easily than the suits or even those who still have a job.

    Disgusting is while driving in traffic an old geezer in front of me with a Romney sticker stuck to his truck bumper. I can’t remember exactly what it said but it had the over used word CHANGE.

    Little do they realize that’s exactly what they’re going to get no matter who wins.

    • NC says:

      You’re not the only one who sees those bumper stickers and want to ram them up their sheeple asses. I just want to drag them out of their cars and smash their heads into the bumper sticker and say, “Are you happy now? Is this ‘Change you can believe in’ “? or “How’s that ‘Hope and Change’ working out for ya”?

  6. puzzled says:

    Strayhorse,

    i m puzzled. im referring to your plan A. 50-60 million baby boomers to receive 1 million bucks each? multiply these numbers and you get 50-60 trillion! US GDP is only 15 trillion. this flood of money would create a hyperinflation. I presume you want these 50-60 trillion printed, because with a federal debt of 16.2 trillion no one will lend us this kind of money.
    i am sure you mean well, but hyperinflation is not going to solve anything, only make things worse.

    • Henry Shivley says:

      How about $50-60 trillion in gold, silver, and the other natural resources that have been stolen from us over the last hundred years. Yeah, that would correct the situation.
