“Brace yourself. The American empire is over. And the descent is going to be horrifying.” ~ Chris hedges

“At no period in American history has our democracy been in such peril or the possibility of totalitarianism as real. Our way of life is over. Our profligate consumption is finished. Our children will never have the standard of living we had. This is the bleak future. This is reality. There is little president Obama can do to stop it. It has been decades in the making. It cannot be undone with $1 trillion or $2 trillion in bailout money. Nor will it be solved by clinging to the illusions of the past” ~ Chris hedges

Listen up guys. What’s happening to us now is different than ever before. These are the eight retailers that will close the most stores in 2013:

  1. Best Buy 200 to 250

  2. Sears Holding Corp. Kmart 175 to 225, Sears 100 to 125

  3. J.C. Penney 300 to 350

  4. Office Depot 125 to 150

  5. Barnes & Noble 190 to 240

  6. Gamestop 500 to 600

  7. OfficeMax 150 to 175

  8. RadioShack 450 to 550

The scientists and engineers are the only people smart enough to help us now. The time will come when you will have no choice but to accept it and do something about it. The scientists and engineers can only help us if we meet them half way. Don't wait until it's too late. Our future and the future of children depend on it. I know it sounds extreme and unorthodox but so is this crisis.

The top down structure here is not able to handle thing when it falls apart. Only local, horizontal structures can handle massive problems, as evidenced by Occupy Sandy.

People have lost their sense of community. And DC is hell bent on taking over the planet.

What we focus on and speak for/about is the total of our efforts, concerning you say, though I say does this concern remain as such due (at least in part) because you say it. What happens when we refuse to speak about any of the things taking no part. Ignore it all away Oh oh HO! Everything connected ...
