Your comment has been published: The economic road to Armageddon is on a Yellow brick road leading to an empty Fort Knox and the empty pockets of hard working Americans. The American Dream has been stolen from us and it is only now becoming apparent. The devil's thieves started us on this road approximately 100 hundred years ago. They accelerated their plans to steal our wealth, via third world cheap labor in the 60s to the present, which made them even wealthier. They masked the grand robbery with credit credit and more credit starting in the 70s. And now when the economic music stopped and the credit chairs have been removed we are realizing that we are a lot more poorer than we once thought. These robbers believe in the concept "survival of the fittest" and since we allowed it to happen we therefore deserved the outcome of this economic collapse since we were (and the vast general US public still is) too "stupid" or weak to stop it.
