Just found out where this tar sands oil would land up after it's all said and done. Aside from polluting Canada with it's dirty waste water vast stretches of tree removal, the pipelines that would stretch from Canada to the Gulf Coast, this oil would end up providing home heating oil for the Chinese. Once burned that pollution would make it's way back to the U.S. as it drifts over the Pacific. Nothing like selling them the rope to strangle us with eh?
Gold is falling fast. The stock market is unrealistic and doing more gyrations than a dancing with stars contestant. We've watched as entire countries collapse before our very eyes. Is it any wonder? Even the Walmart workers can't afford to shop in their own store. Low prices indeed when they have to go to the 99¢ store. You do what you got to do I guess.We have mayhem but I guess the merriment has left the station run by a Chinese outfit is the latest. Such is what happens when a company can offshore/outsource or whatever the euphemism it's called. Set up a web page, have the product made in China, ship it the cheapest way possible direct to your door and watch the bucks roll in only without a job all while your customer base left with the train. Who ya going to sell to now sparky? Rural folks in Africa just aren't in the market for cheap plastic products. Giving them a credit card won't cut it. Can't even skin a zebra with that.
What's left? Debt. Debt for sale. Get your debt here. You buy mine, I'll buy his and he'll buy yours' and altogether nothing will get done. Just shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic. And slowly ever so slowly the ship of state sinks below the water line. And as the last cabin light flickers out a sole desperate cry is heard from the aft deck "hedge funds for sale!" "Get your last chance for economic survival." "Gold and stock hedge funds for sale!" " Get them before they're (er... we're) gone."
And they say this isn't a depression.
And don't forget to get your free door prize when exiting the theater. Todays' special is the gun of you choice. Just don't get caught in the crossfire. The theater manager Mr.Tsar Bomba is not fond of the clean up.
