The country is doomed from overpopulation like the rest of the world. The government will collapse from debt before the mass die-off happens(along with depression, hyperinflation, police state attempts---thanks Dems and Bama). Growth madness, ecocide. Greed, lust, stupidity, leading to cannibalism in the end. :-({|= :cry:

The People's Bailout: Occupy is forgiving personal debt

Occupy Wall Street continues to show that it's more than just a simple protest movement. They have been doing amazing work with Hurricane Sandy relief and now there's Rolling Jubilee. Here's how Rolling Jubilee works:

OWS is going to start buying distressed debt (medical bills, student loans, etc.) in order to forgive it. As a test run, we spent $500, which bought $14,000 of distressed debt. We then ERASED THAT DEBT. (If you're a debt broker, once you own someone's debt you can do whatever you want with it - traditionally, you hound debtors to their grave trying to collect. We're playing a different game. A MORE AWESOME GAME.)

This is a simple, powerful way to help folks in need -- to free them from heavy debt loads so they can focus on being productive, happy and healthy. As you can see from our test run, the return on investment approaches 30:1. That's a crazy bargain!


At first I didn't understand the issue or solution ...... but then I investigated a little more. The video helps .....

The country is "doomed" because of heavy borrowing and spending across the board the last three decades. Heavy financial speculation by the financial elite, leading to a global unregulated derivatives market of between $600 trillion to $1.5 quadrillion in notional value, didn't help.

I have read where this year will see a food crisis and further devaluation of the dollar. So buy food, ammo, guns, gold and silver, biodiesel makers, independent solar electric system components, and private wind generators----while you can.

Make that freeze dried food that will last, and don't forget water filters and tablets along with vitamins and other supplements.
