Hunter S. Thompson on 9.11

Bad news 

Khannea Suntzu's insight:

Hunter S. Thompson, great writer, he foreshadowed our current political situation with the world one day after the world trade center and I will quote.

"The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for peace in our time, in the U.S. or any other country. Make no mistake about it: we are at War now- with somebody- and we will stay at war with that strange and mysterious enemy for the rest of our lives."

"It will be a religious war, a sort of christian jihad,fueled by religious hatred and led by merciless fanatics on both sides. It will be guerrilla warfare on a global scale, with no front lines and no identifiable enemy."

"This is going to be an expensive war, and victory is not guaranteed-for anyone, and certainly not for a baffled little creep like George W. Bush. All he knows is that his father started a war a long time ago, and that he, the goofy child- president, has been chosen by fate and the global oil industry to finish it off"

Page 90. "Hey Rube" letter dated September 12, 2001.

 

Paul William Roberts in his Globe and Mail article of Saturday, February 26, 2005 wrote the following: Hunter telephoned me on Feb. 19, the night before his death. He sounded scared. It wasn't always easy to understand what he said, particularly over the phone, he mumbled, yet when there was something he really wanted you to understand, you did. He'd been working on a story about the World Trade Center attacks and had stumbled across what he felt was hard evidence showing the towers had been brought down not by the airplanes that flew into them but by explosive charges set off in their foundations. Now he thought someone was out to stop him publishing it: "They're gonna make it look like suicide," he said. "I know how these bastards think . . ."

 

Now check out this February 25 Associated Press story about Thompson's death. Sounds a lot like a professional hit with a silencer: "I was on the phone with him, he set the receiver down and he did it. I heard the clicking of the gun," Anita Thompson told the Aspen Daily News in Friday's editions. She said her husband had asked her to come home from a health club so they could work on his weekly ESPN column. Thompson said she heard a loud, muffled noise, but didn't know what had happened. "I was waiting for him to get back on the phone," she said.

Recessions result in lower birth rates in the long run

While it is largely understood that birth rates plummet when unemployment rates soar, the long-term effects have never been clear. Now, new research from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs shows that women in their early 20s during the Great Recession are likely to have fewer children both in the short and long term, largely in part because of the number of women who will remain childless at age 40.

Top 5 Reasons why Bitcoins beat Dollars

Top 5 Reasons why Bitcoins beat Dollars | EndGameWatch | Scoop.it
 The U.S. Government Seems to Know Something

And the U.S. Government seems to know something you don’t know since they can’t wait to sell their multi-million dollar U.S. Military MRAPs to small town police forces nationwide for pennies on the dollar. It’s not because Podunk; USA needs an armored vehicle that can stop an IED for their annual parade.
 

When, not if, the U.S. Dollar collapses under its weight of debt, over-production, and disinterest abroad, the stuff is going to hit the fan at a local level. The 100 million-plus Americans totally dependent on the government assistance for food and income will not react well to this monetary collapse. People who are common working stiffs won’t exactly be in a great mood either, with mass lay-offs afoot, with the national fiat currency now unable to support most work forces. Police and The National Guard all over America will need plenty of armor, weapons, and intimidating machines to use against their citizens under these circumstances.

It’s Nothing Personal. Just Business.

All of the sudden, military MRAPs are hitting U.S. Streets nationwide.  Why is that?
 

The business of controlling you, your money, and your freedoms. Don’t just take my word for it, and don’t say you haven’t been warned. Ask any financial expert worth their salt, from Robert Kiyosaki, to Jeff Berwick, to Peter Schiff, what the dollar’s future looks like going forward. They will tell you the dollar’s darkest days are on the immediate horizon.
 

That’s the bad news. The good news is the result of this economic certainty is interest/value/prices for Bitcoin and other digital currencies will skyrocket in response. Those that have invested wisely in “The Future of Money” will prosper. Those who hold onto what I call “The Ghost of Money’s Past,” not so much.
 

Just like the typewriter, the buggy whip, and the rotary phone, every technology has a lifespan. And fiat currency is a technology, just like the “Tally sticks” of yore, used in Europe to account for interpersonal monetary transactions for centuries. We have been trained, conditioned, and even coerced to believe that Fiat currency is invincible, if not immortal. But the world of fiat currency will show it’s inherent mortality within the U.S. Dollar as well. As if the economic collapses of Cyprus, Greece, Zimbabwe, and Argentina haven’t taught you that already, the U.S. Dollar is on currency’s Death Row, whether you like it or not. It’s not a guess or a matter of opinion.  It is, in fact, a mathematic and economic certainty. It’s not a matter of if this will happen, but when it must.


Perhaps Earnest Hemingway said it best in his book of the same name. “And, therefore, never send to know for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee.”

Khannea Suntzu's insight:

Like many southerners. I have a family farm. It's in a sustainable small community. 5 plus acres against a national forest. A closet full of shotguns and a drawer full of bibles. collapse of society doesn't mean much to me. If anything, it means I can stop going to work and play on my tractor all day and hunt white tail.

Emp, Ebola, gold value.... What ever. I couldn't care less. My problem is preppers. When I meet other preppers, usually city preps, I always want to talk about the farm. I could use another family with guns to help guard things. But I hesitate. Many of them have this 'survival of the fittest' mentality. I get this weird feeling that their unspoken plan is to leave the city and take a farm by force. I can deal with the unfortunate begging at the door. But some well armed prepper from the city w a bunch of tacticool ar15's is an f'n problem. My morality doesn't come from society. The collapse changes nothing in terms of my guiding principles. I would never take another mans farm by force.
