There is no 'Plan B'

Greetings good citizen,

As the world’s economy continues its death spiral (regardless of what the stock markets does,) we can only wonder what our, er, ‘leaders’ are thinking?

(For the sake of argument we will ‘assume’ the ‘announced winners’ of the most recent elections are our so-called ‘leaders’, even if that isn’t how things have worked out…)

As I have pointed out many times before, there is NO WAY to use capitalism to ‘save’ capitalism. It ain’t gonna fly!

What you’ll get is ‘privatized profits’ with ‘socialized losses’, a rather devastating combination when it comes to the overall welfare of society.

The question nobody is asking is do you want to live with 299 million starving, desperate people?

The short answer is ‘no!’ well guess what? Our politicians don’t want to live with millions of destitute people either…that’s why they take the money! (Although ‘the joke’ is going to be on anyone who thinks they can ‘buy’ their way out of the coming fiasco…)

There are indeed some things money can not buy.

Which is to ask if trillions of dollars worth of additional ‘public debt’ (remember, privatized profits, socialized losses…) will put the economy ‘back on track’?

Sadly, that’s not ‘the plan’…worse, the last thing they want is for you to get an inkling about what the plan really is…because saving you isn’t part of that plan.

As I explained a couple of days ago, ‘the plan’, as it stands, is to let our elected government simply ‘disappear’ amidst a cloud of finger pointing and ‘epic legislative gridlock’.

Which is to say that those we elect to make decisions will be incapable of performing even that simple task.

I’ll even go as far as to predict that ‘the party of no’ will initiate the ‘walk out’ that ultimately ends government ‘by the people’.

The thing to ask is ‘why would they do something like that?’

Well, good citizen, what do you suppose the answer is?

By 2012, surplus oil production capacity could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 MBD.

Imagine that? As early as the year after next the ‘demand’ for oil will ‘outstrip’ supply.

What does that mean for you?

…letting prices determine which industries idle back may not be the best plan. Consider the case of agriculture. If full 'pass-through pricing' is the mechanism of rationing, which it currently is, then less food will be grown. With world grain stocks at historic lows, this is one area where we might not want to let Mr. Market dictate the activities of farmers based on fuel price. To do otherwise would require a plan of some sort, and none appear to be in effect.

Now imagine the ‘double whammy’ of an ‘absent government’ AND an energy crisis…

Whole sections of the nation will become ‘uninhabitable’ because the ‘average person’ (who is already living on some kind of food assistance program) will be ‘unable’ to afford to buy enough fuel to report to work, never mind heat their home or cook their food…much less heat water to wash and bathe with!

Funny how this energy scarcity thing ‘cascades’ through your entire life…

And, as the title of the article points out…THERE IS NO PLAN ‘B’!

So if you’ve been looking for a ‘definitive timeline’, now you have something to work with!

Bad news… I dunno when this particular conference was held but I doubt it was last week. So, tick-tock good citizen, civilization has ‘roughly’ two years from this past summer until pretty much everything ‘crashes and burns’. In many cases literally.

While we were dancing through the individual’s ‘woes’ and saw how ‘out of sight’ energy prices…I’d say ten dollar a gallon gasoline coupled with ten dollar a gallon heating oil (just for starters) would pretty much preclude most people from even reporting to work.

You can see how this, er, ‘problem’ could quickly, er, ‘eradicate’ most of the economy. Ultimately, it would also decimate the population. And the soon to be ‘non-existent’ government wouldn’t lift a finger.

Which is to point out that you should really ‘vote’ with your trigger finger in the upcoming mid-term elections.

Or you may want to save your ammo for when it will really be needed…during the upcoming food riots/raids.

What ‘food riots’ you ask? The food riots that will come inevitably when the trucks stop delivering to the local supermarket, of course!

Here’s where the job becomes difficult.

I need to convince you that the, er, ‘rich’ have already made their choice. They have already elected to throw the rest of us under the oncoming bus.

What is not being reported is there’s more oil out there than they’re ‘admitting to’. After the, er, ‘collapse’ of Western Civilization there suddenly won’t be a ‘crisis’ anymore.

[Mostly because the number of end users will have shrunk dramatically.]

One can only suspect that the currently wealthy intend to, er, ‘wipe out’ any survivors that resist being enslaved.

Bizarrely, if their plan succeeds, they will outnumber us after the dust settles…sadly, this won’t make them any smarter.

They’ll still be too greedy and stupid to manage things without causing riots or uprisings…

Again, I risk much by walking the extreme edges of credibility but they have been ‘experimenting’ with social collapse in the Banana Republics for decades now. They have a pretty solid idea as to what happens when you pull certain levers.

No accident or coincidence, not by a long shot!

But, being the ‘rational person’ that you are, you will still give them the benefit of the doubt, regardless of how many times they’ve screwed you over!

And THAT good citizen is the hardest thing to fight!

You SHOULD know better but unfortunately you still tend to buy their ‘happy talk’ rather than what your own mind tells you.

Well, I can’t tell you what to believe…but that little voice inside your head isn’t necessarily ‘wrong’.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
