Some people are predicting the collapse of the dollar and the economic collapse of America. Gerald Celente, founder and director of the Trends Research Institute has reason to believe that: "We’ll See the Worst U.S. Economic Collapse Ever" and Russian professor Igor Panarin claims that America's current economic crisis could not only spur the collapse of the Federal government, but could also result in America breaking up into a series of smaller nations. “Financial problems in the U.S. will worsen” says Panarin, Millions of citizens have already lost their savings. Prices and unemployment are on the rise. General Motors and Ford are on the verge of collapse; whole cities will be left without work. Governors are already insistently demanding money from the federal center. Unrest is growing, and at the moment it is only being held back by the hope that Obama can work miracles. But by spring, it will be clear that there are no miracles.
Charles Freeman is such an American patriot that he actually stuck his neck out even further and named the identity of those who blocked him, knowing as he knew that the usual suspects would deflect criticism by claiming he was out for some ridiculous and spurious reason.
I'm going to type slowly so that even the Noamites can follow. There are two American establishments, the WASP Old American Establishment, and the Jewish New American Establishment. You might think there would be a battle for control, but the Old American Establishment just gave up.
The stock market began as a means for companies to raise money and for “shareholders to invest in business ventures and get a share of profits.” At some point, it turned into a casino resembling a Ponzi scheme, which held true until 2008 when the Ponzi scheme collapsed.
The causes for this collapse are diverse. Some of its aspects and repercussions have already been discussed here, and will be discussed further in the future. If you would like to know how far the markets have slipped, then see the following 2 March 2009 Bloomberg report. Let’s, however, go beyond the daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly fluctuations for now.
Environmental attorney and activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has described George W. Bush as "the worst environmental president we've had in American history." And I don't think that's an exaggeration.
During the eight years of the Bush administration, pollution, climate change, and scientific research all took a back seat to Bush's agenda of a corporate free-for-all. The Bushies even went so far as to censor scientific reports to suit their agenda.
But all that is changing now. We finally have a guy in the White House who respects science and appreciates its benefits to society.
On March 9, President Obama signed an executive order lifting the Bush administration's restrictions on federal funds for embryonic stem cell research.
The media are abuzz with the news that President Obama acknowledges that we are not winning the war in Afghanistan and is thinking about reaching out to moderate elements of the Taliban.
And the right-wingers are jumping all over it. To them, it's proof that Obama likes to pal around with terrorists.
By contrast, their hero and dear leader -- George W. Bush -- would always swagger and smirk and talk about how we don't negotiate with terrorists. How macho.

'Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." Herman Goering, Interview at Nuremburg Trials, April 14, 1946
It seems to be official: Rush Limbaugh is the new unofficial head of the floundering Republican Party.
The media have been all over it in the past few days.
The GOP leadership grovels.
And the dittoheads rejoice, even as they fail to realize that this could be their Waterloo.
