The U.S. Economy Is Now Dangerously Detached From Reality

We now live in an entirely fabricated fiscal environment. Every aspect of it is filtered, muddled, molded, and manipulated before our eyes ever get to study the stats. The metaphor may be overused, but our economic system has become an absolute “matrix”. All that we see and hear has been homogenized and all truth has been sterilized away. There is nothing to investigate anymore. It is like awaking in the middle of a vast and hallucinatory live action theater production, complete with performers, props, and sound effects, all designed to confuse us and do us harm. In the end, trying to make sense of the illusion is a waste of time. All we can do is look for the exits…

Don't feed the Sharks.

I've been saying this for years. That if everyone would just pull out of stocks, bonds and all other shady investment vehicles and take their marbles home.
Then Banks will have no choice but to get back into the business of being beneficial to society and the economy, rather than sucking the marrow from its carcass.

Put 10 to 15 bucks of gas in your car at a time, is probably one of the best things that anyone can do to bring artificial inflation back into check. As long as we continue to justify the month over month record Gas profits. Then the Greedy investor class will continue to reek havoc on the world's meek and meager just trying to scrap by. But are paying lofty premiums for shit as insignificant as grain, meat and produce, because by time the Gas investors have had their fun. It adds a 300% mark up on all good across the board. IN higher production and delivery costs.

There's a lot of gas spent on energy to get a cucumber from a seed to the grocery store shelf. And no Unicorn fart powered pipe dream can replace that. And punishing the consumer, because you've got a grudge against Arnold Schwarzenegger for driving a Hummer is just piss poor pathetic.

The consumer, as always, does hold all of the cards. Stop playing along, and things would change over night. But as long as we continue to humor the investor class with record profits. They will only be obliged to submit more misery for your efforts.

Nominated.

What, you think they are gambling with your money if you buy your gas all at once, filling the tank? Wtf ?

Were you one of the people that got excited when people were saying, "Okay, let's nobody buy any gas next Wednesday. We'll bring the oil industry to its knees."

Hard for me to comprehend this level of stupidity. http://www.snopes.com/politics/gasoline/nogas.asp
