- Does anyone actually understand what is going to happen
if the military and Social Security are not paid on August 4? Even
if they are only delayed for one day?
- Do we all understand that the FDIC will no longer insure
bank and savings accounts? That any money you have in the bank will
probably disappear in a heartbeat?
- That interstate commerce will simply stop? That
the US military will be, for the most part, spread all over the world with
no supply lines and no way to get home?
- That police and fire services will probably stop?
- But that the President and congress will continue to
get paid? The folks at the Pentagon won't go for that. There
will be tanks on Pennsylvania avenue.
- Is everyone ready for this? Because even if it doesn't
happen, we are so close to the brink that just about everyone now understands
that it COULD happen.
- The ignorant shits in Washington think this is some sort
of political brinkmanship. Obama will blame the Republicans and the
Republicans will blame Obama. Pawlenty says
The Chinese Before The Military If U.S. Defaults". That's right.
Screw the troops. Screw the veterans. Screw the seniors.
But we need to keep borrowing that 2 BILLION dollars a DAY to pay
Congress (and the Secret Service - and the TSA - and Hamid Karzai.)
- Listen, peeps - what do you think your silver is going
to be worth then? And if not THIS August 4th, there is always next
year. Greece is tanking. Then Europe and then the US. Because
we don't have any jobs, so there is no one left to pay taxes. Even
if the fools in government cut a deal, the damage is done. No one is going
to suddenly start hiring.
- Think about even a POTENTIAL Social Security default.
Think about not paying the UNITED STATES MILITARY. Not
just the veterans and retirees - but the troops in combat who have hungry
families back here.
- Then think about what your bag of silver and numismatic
gold is going to be worth on August 4. All that talk about 'wealth
preservation' is well and good - until the government pays China before
it pays Americans and banks lock their doors and the guns come out.
