Unemployment for february in the states was 8.3 percent, higest since 1982. Thats up about 1 percent from Jan. 651,000 american jobs were slashed, making this the record third month in a row seeing an over 600,000 jobs lost here at home. Today in america there are over 12.5 million unemployed people, a number which is up from the 7.7 million 4 year low recorded in 2005.
With a record unemployment rate growing at a rather steady 600,000 citizens a month, and a global recession thats gonna start burning in the spring (see refrences) it's no wonder the American War College is preparing for riots already.



(Summer of Dread)

"If the America people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currencies, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." ~Thomas Jefforson

Let me first say i am a Third Worlder , who has never set foot in the US -nor ever wants to.

What I say might well sound naively optimistic and far -fetched . From the little I know about your country ,and its Western vassals - things should improve - though perhaps not immediately.

Very simply ,because you have the entire gaggle of the mega rich -straining every nerve to ensure that the entire West stays afloat.

Of course right in front -solidly rooting for you are the only ones with the deepest of pockets viz. the Chinese .

Among your other great supporters are (inter alia) a bizarre , rag-tag bunch comprising : the Drug Cartels, the Russian Mafia Oligarchs , the Aye-rab Sheeeks -and of course the mega Tax evaders and other crooks .

None of them ,however, is doing it out of love -or altruism. But just to protect their own hides : because if the West goes under , they too stand to lose everything.

On a personal note - should the West weather this crisis - i 'd feel vindicated. For that would be the clearest indication ever , that the entire notion of Karma is just pure bunkum. And just a wistful fantasy .
