>The Greater Depression

10 Jan

>Two little items I’ve web-wandered by in the last few days:

As most of the world bets on China to help lift the global economy out of recession, Mr. Chanos is warning that China’s hyperstimulated economy is headed for a crash, rather than the sustained boom that most economists predict.

Then, there’s this nifty graph (late of the New York Times), found at Michael Flynn’s other blog:
Forget stuffing gold in the mattress — a couple of goats, a few chickens and a vegetable garden are startin’ to look like good planning. I think we need more ammunition and primers in Roseholme’s storerooms, too.

Three cheers for James Wesley, Rawles at whom we may some day look back and say, “what a Pollyanna!”

    >China's economic numbers are like Chicago's homicide numbers. They are whatever suits the interest of the head honcho at the moment. But the amount of truth in either runs from questionable to negligible. Kurt Denninger's Market TickerMish Shedlocks Global Economic Trend AnalysisTom Blumer's Bizzy BlogAnd the "Maxed Out Mama" Tell it like it is. And it is not pretty. Yes, stock up on seeds. Get a book on edible plants for your area and learn what they are.And all the rest of the SHTF preparations you need to do. BUT – also become active in your local TEA Party. And active in local politics if you can, because all politics is local. Just showing up at the local Damnocrats meetings is a start.Send a few bucks to candidates who are gun wise or who may be educable about guns. And right now, we are all named George. 'Cause ain't nobody going to save the country if we don't save our country. Stranger

    >I enjoyed Rawles' book "Patriots". As many online reviewers noted, it is a survival manual dressed up as a novel, with lots of interesting info on guns, food, fuel, communications, etc.

    >Come now, the more people who are unemployed, the more people who are dependent on gummit handouts.Can't have the proles so content that they can worry about anything past the budget for the next two weeks, now.Jim
