End of Our Golden Age

It has been some time since my last post, I thought I would take the time to say a few things.  In the time that's passed the recession has ended they say , but I see no sign of it here, and from the news and reports I have read I don't see it elsewhere either, I believe this is, but the calm before the storm and that the truly hard times lay ahead.

I cant have these conversations with most people, they don't know and they do not  care that our society economy and perhaps the very fabric of our modern civilization are about to come undone.

Here in America in the last few years anyone who has bothered to look can tell that the majority of the news supports big industry and big government , how could it be other wise as there owned and operated by the very companies and mega cooperation's they are supposed to be reporting on.

The model that our economy is based on is broken, and there seems to be no way to fix it given the current political and economic situation. More, we lack the will for it to be fixed . The government stepped in and saved not the American people but the company's. Spending Trillions of dollars not to better the lives of the average American but to line the pockets of business and the rich.

Where, I ask are the billions we gave the banks in the bailouts, still in the banks and reinvested in the market very little money has been loaned to anyone. The banks have again been turned into giant casinos, benefiting only the house and its investors.

The myth of the American dream of the working class has been shattered, proven wrong and impossible to reach in this day and age, our savings and investments in the market that always goes up gone or reduced to a pittance of its former worth.

The dollar worth less and less over time, the real prices we pay go up and up but the government doesn't count these costs into its information because its too volatile and it alters the numbers. Well of course it does, in reality our incomes have steadily decreased since the 1970's and our cost have gone up and up. Do your own research its true.

There are so many uncertainties in the world today, so many interrelated factors that we only vaguely understand.

Each day offers a new crisis, as the media and politicians divert, obscure and mislead. no I don't think there is a plan, I just think its human nature and today most bend the way the wind blows , thinking that this to will pass and all will be well.

Good luck people, and remember the past always repeats itself , so prepare we have  seen the end of the golden age .
