American capitalism gone with a whimper

American capitalism gone with a whimper

27.04.2009 Source: Pravda.Ru


It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?


These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.


Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "freeman" whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

Wow! Exactly! Very well put!

There are many bad things going on here on this old planet Earth!

The vast majority of people still believe that all these bad things are happening because that would be part of life! No way! The hard, cold facts are:

There are a few rotten families on this Earth who set their minds on decimating the population by about 80%. A friend of mine who helped research the facts for the book "The Men Behind Hitler!" has come across some excruciatingly horrible facts, so atrocious that most people would not have made it past the first few pages had the authors kept this information in the book.

And still: even after its current release it is hard to read for the fainthearted people amongst us.

So: yes, it is definitely time for a change to the better. But not the change as 'they' would like to have it!!!!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, TRO!

One more reason to: SUCK THE LAST DROP OF BLOOD OUT OF THE BLOODSUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have to keep in mind that people flow from one extreme to the other and lack the ability to reason when in masses.

If they put a cap on maximum salaries then costs will go down from the whole sale to the retail level and goods will become more affordable.

They are not going to cap it at $7.40/hour or why would you bother going to school?
It will likely be more than the average person makes anyway...

There is talk that "they" wish to combine socialism with the "money incentive" of capitalism so we would be doing things more like China today than Russia way back when.

There is talk that they wish to tax traders at a rate of 50% above a 10% net gain (still couldn't spend the money so so what!).

Our country is run by the devil? Maybe so, but...

People were not complaining when HOME prices were going through the roof.

People were not complaining when GOLD was shooting up up and away.

People were not complaining when they were given LEVERAGE to buy these assets.

I hear people complain that the government takes too much in taxes:

Why should they take 50% of what I make?

I do all the work so why should they be my partner?

Maybe because this is their game board and we are using their monopoly money?

Maybe because they create the opportunities by way of engineered chaos that lead to massive profit opportunities?

Maybe because they give us 4 to 100+ to 1 leverage to potentially make more money than we could earn and save in 600 years at a job?

Yes, the ignorant get left behind but that is a sacrifice that I am willing to make ;)

We can't just focus on the negatives we have to look at what we are getting in return.

Now if they capped: salaries, reduced all leverage to 1.5 to 1, & took half of our money then there might be cause to complain.

Until the day comes when they put us in shackles disregard all this foolish talk and focus on how you are being benefited today (if you are ignorant then disregard this message).

What scares me the most is instituting a trader tax or reducing forex leverage. Both are still being considered. If forex leverage is reduced to 1.5 to 1, then that will ruin the entire forex infrastructure. It wont matter if you move out of the country because forex wont be worth trading. Removing almost all of the U.S. liquidity will be the death of forex. Then they will do the same to futures, options, etc. so that buy and hold is all you get. That may have worked years ago but IMHO is doesnt work anymore. Indeed that is the reason why I am here.

I do think we will see inflation, but I dont think we will see hyperinflation like Zimbabwe. Why? The reason is that the people that really run this country(the people who stop hunt us)like the system the way it is.
All I need is Supply and Demand

"They" said that they would to every thing in their power to make sure that the dollar remains the dominant currency.

Hyperinflation does not achieve this goal nor does skyrocketing gold prices.

I believe that there will be massive panic selling in the gold market within the next few years.

The people that lack the liquidity of a futures contract (people holding physical gold) will suffer the most as they will have no choice but to sell the gold without the premium and below market value.

If they can't keep Mexicans out then how are they going to keep Americans in?

Lol! Good point. I still wouldn't mind packing my bags permanently and saying goodbye to outrageous taxes and too many people looking to live on the dole.

In Mexico people still work hard and make things. Hasn't been that way here in decades.
