All Bets Are Off

Those inflicted with blindness have no choice but not to see; but those who through willingness or ignorance accept blindness over vision make it a conscious decision.

Do some accept blindness as the lesser of two evils? Is it better not to face the coming storm than to look at the rolling dark clouds and feel the sting of the wind and the pelting sleet and snow?

ABAO - all bets are off as to not prepare is a gamble

ABAO - all bets are off as to not prepare is a gamble

Greece is not America, but its intensifying financial tsunami is a portend of things to come. The overall Greek unemployment rate has now risen above 20 percent and the youth unemployment rate in that country has soared to a flabbergasting 48 percent.

Crowds rioted at the Greek parliament building as its leaders approved a cuts package that is a condition of a 130 billion Euro bailout. ┬áBut, austerity measures, bluffs, and bailouts are not going to help Greece – nor will they keep America from slipping over the edge of financial oblivion.

But not only is the Euro in danger, but even those who refuse to see would have to reckon with the notion that by association the Dollar is doomed as well.

On 02/20/12, oil rose to a nine month high of $109.00 a barrel as Iran has suspended oil exports to Britain and France. Being that oil is an internationally-traded commodity, $5.00 a gallon gas is a strong possibility for America by summer. If Israel attacks Iranian nuclear installations, gas at five greenbacks in the U.S. of A would be a certainty.

TEOTWAWKI is the acronym for The End of the World As We Know It. ABAO – All Bets Are Off is a situation synonymous with TEOTWAWKI. Like bubbling lava, peril flows in early 2012 and the status quo is no longer static.

As the violence and bloodshed spins out of control in Syria while Iran docks two warships there; as America contemplates arming the opposition to President Bashar al-Assad while Russia, China, and Iran show support for him – a powder keg unlike America has perhaps ever seen has been ignited and possess the flammability of a man in a gasoline suit running through a Colorado wildfire.

Economic collapse and major war are topics that the deliberately blind will not broach, but into their lives these unpleasant events will encroach.

The gong of doom and gloom has been banged so often in recent months that too many have become deaf to it. While “doom and gloom” is felt by those who lack faith, all bets are off now as the clock is ticking, so it is a perilous gamble if we don’t steel ourselves and open our eyes to see.

Beware, prepare, and be ready for anything.

Ketchup Soup

Ketchup packets can be used to supply the main ingredient for Ketchup Soup; which is already a meal for some homeless children and may become a staple for countless more people in the coming collapse.

Ketchup packets from the online condiment museum @ http://www.neatorama.com/2006/09/14/condiment-packet-museum/

Ketchup Soup is not a Republican or Democrat dish…

…as the gourmands who hold political office would not have to be concerned about ever having to dine on this delicacy of the impoverished.

One and one half million children are homeless in 2012 America. The Republicans will say that if the parents would just pull themselves up by the bootstraps and get out there and look for a job or two (most certainly two) the homelessness would end – because this is still America after all, the land of boundless opportunity and immense “wealth” (for the privileged).

The Democrats will retort that there is a glaring need for more taxes to be taken from those with immense wealth to create more programs to provide shelter, food, and most importantly “education” (code word for indoctrination) so as to provide skills to compete in today’s job market (ideally government jobs) – but the homeless and impoverished require government help as they cannot fend for or think for themselves.

There is a widening, bifurcated gulf in America between the haves and the have-nots. And down in the depths of that gulf, America has become too dependent on government and too independent of God. It is this juxtaposition of dependence and independence that is used by the elite to help orchestrate the end of America as we know it.

There was a time when hard work payed off and the American Dream could be lived by anyone who desired to invest a suitable amount of elbow grease. Money is the fuel for the humming machine of prosperity, but in our weak human condition success and money have created a lustful desperation for power; and that power has become cholesterol clogging the arteries of the charitable heart and acting as the caffeine for the nervous system of greed.

America has been a poor steward of the abundance and wealth that God has blessed her with, and now that blessing is failing. America’s destitute and working poor lust for the wealth of the rich, while her rich stab forks into each other’s hands as they reach furiously into the pie plate of plenitude for what is now the last piece.

The horn of plenty is nearly empty. In what may be a convoluted paradox, the American nation is becoming a ward of the state.

We are far past the 1960’s style protesting like that of the Occupy movement and the sloganeering based on the “1” and “99” percents. These movements are backed by the very puppet masters that manipulate the Euro, the Dollar, the U.S. Stock Market and political classes of both major American parties.

As “preppers” smartly stock up and batten down for the coming collapse, it may ultimately be those that today live the life of opulence and social mobility that will within months be inquiring of a hungry child how her mother makes Ketchup Soup, and if she has a bottle or a few condiment packets to spare.

Groundhog Day

Now that Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow on February 2, 2012, will that mean six more weeks until economic collapse?

Groundhog Day: It has long been a national event based on daft prognostication and sheep-headed superstition to distract the masses. The celebration of Punxsutawney Phil’s rising from the burrow in the Pennsylvania town that is his namesake gives reason to hoot, holler, and become intoxicated. But do American’s need a reason for the aforementioned?

Punxsutawney Phil is a distraction.

Punxsutawney Phil is a distraction

Based on folklore, there will be six more weeks of winter because the groundhog named Phil saw his shadow. Does Punxsutawney Phil even know that he saw his shadow? Does he have an inkling as to what a shadow is? What does PETA think of the poor groundhog being exploited in this manner?

Despite the mild weather pattern that has settled over much of the U.S., there will be six more weeks of winter as Spring officially begins in the Northern Hemisphere on March 20, 2012, at 1:14 A.M. Punxsutawney Phil is not a meteorologist, and yet we had better steel ourselves and prepare to trudge and shovel our way through whatever snow may fall between now and the first day of spring; and for the snow that will likely fall once spring has sprung.

The groundhog can’t tell us when the economy’s coming collapse will take place, but do we need a soothsayer in the guise of a furry animal to provide us with this information? We can see the signs as the hostilities with Iran crawl toward the Rubicon. Don’t be fooled by the “good talks” between the former Persia and the IAEA. These talks are but a crafty ruse used to pacify the gullible as neither the IAEA or Iran can be trusted. Israel does not have the luxury of time to wait and America knows this as well – as nuclear submarine USS Annapolis and the destroyer USS Momsen enter the Red Sea.

The powers that be are playing chess and the world is the game board. Romney, Gingrich, Obama, and Punxsutawney Phil are all icons to distract us from seeing the hands that maneuver the pawns, bishops, rooks, and knights. Through the lies and deception, this writer is glad that he knows the truth

…But for now I’ll say what you want to hear: Happy Groundhog Day!
