    We treat politics like sports. It's all a game. Two sides playing football. We cheer. One side wins; one side loses. In truth, both sides win; and we lose.

    Everything is a game. Law is a game too. Sports. Look at the legal system. Sports. One side wins. Justice doesn't matter. Who wins and who loses is the real issue.

  • Australia 200 - Receiving Moderate Support Around 5300 [View article]
    If the US Dollar keeps climbing, then Australia and Canada are in a lot of trouble. Housing bubbles popping and all that debt collapsing like a waterfall event.

    You're right, it all depends on the Dollar.

    What if the Dollar Bull is a 2-3 years situation, like it was in 1980-83, 1998-2001, 2007-2009...?

    Ask that question in 2019. We have stalled the Greatest Depression, but we have not defeated it.

    Here is a scenario. The strong Dollar crushes the emerging economies, which has borrowed cheap Dollars hand over fist. To refinance these loans, governments, corporations, individuals will have to buy back more expensive dollars to do so. In 1980-83, this happened; and Latin America collapsed; in 1998-2001, the dollar bull reappeard, and the Asian economy collapsed, the Nasdaq market collapsed; and Russia collapsed. In 2007-8, the Dollar got much stronger, and the global economy collapsed. QE was designed to keep the Dollar weak, and keep the global economy inflated with MORE BORROWED MONEY. When the emerging economies collapse, defaults and bankrupticies sweep the globe. Then, because of this, European and American banks collapse. They beg the FED for another bailout. But the FED is suddenly empty of ideas. There is your global deflation scenario.

    No. I mean strong Dollar deflation followed by the weeding out of nations and corporations and individuals who borrowed recklessly. Default. Bankruptcy. That is the only way back to the beginning, the New Beginning, or RESTART.

    Nature wipes out the old corporate crop. Only those that deserve to survive survive. The law of the fittest.

    We need to wake up. There is no difference between the Democrats and Republicans as we know them. They just share the pie between them, pretending they are different.

    Step outside the box. They just take turns in carving up America, selling it to the highest bidder for their $million finders' fees.

    Mitt Romney...makes me laugh. Lightweight.

    Where are our real leaders? Not the fluffy millionaires on the surface who have no ideas. Our real leaders have been invisible over the last few decades; we still don't know their names. Crises makes real leaders rise to the top.

    The strong Dollar will deconstruct the fluffy Millionaire's Club of spoiled thieves and embezzlers running our country.

    Pretty hard to be bragging about all the good Obama has done for us. I don't support the Obama-bashers. I voted for Obama also. But his kowtowing to the Banks and to the FED has transfered trillions from American taxpayers to the richest people in the order to delay the massive deflation coming. An act of political cowardice, I'm afraid. Let the strong dollar unglue all the patchwork stalling tacitics that have been in place since 2001.

  • The Coming Euro Crash [View article]
    The FED can't let the Dollar fall now when Russia is attacking the Dollar. The idea that the FED is going to start raising rates was in self-defense, resisting the Russian Dollar-attack. The FED is between a rock and a hard place.

    If the ECB disappoints, the EURO will rally a bit; and European stocks will collapse; global stocks will collapse.

    From 1983-2001 the Creative Force builds the world; from 2001-2019 the Destructive Force (the Night) deconstructs the world. Another way of seeing this 'act of deconstruction' is the 'construction of World Chaos'. That is what we are witnessing today.

    "In the beginning was Chaos": and then the first-born began to order Chaos. Eternal return.

    The strong Dollar will break everything down piece-by-piece.

    Thanks for your comment.
