Ever since I read the book "Aftershock"...I've been astounded at how people with 'money' in the markets (or somewhere in the ethers) just accept the *fact* that a major economic collapse...won't affect their ability to access that money!
I have a good friend with about a half mil in his 401k...gave him the book; been a couple of years, and he still has it. Like he's studying the thing and trying to figure out how to keep his savings from going to "money heaven", in the increasingly highl probable event of a collapse of the current system. Voted Obama...believes in the man; no way he would think the Dems don't have the best interests of the nation at heart. Of course, they do; just that their best interest, is of the egalatarian sort.
The Socialists don't have to spend time passing all of these complex laws...all they have to do is what Obama IS doing...keep the private economy shrinking so he can *legitimately* keep spending toward collapse. Then one foggy morning, it ALL goes into the 'reorganization' kitty; where it will be allocated in a *fair* manner. According to dire need. They win!
You fellas better take that penalty and get something in your hand, or you'll end up like the old fable about the dog with the bone who saw his reflection in the water.
