I don't know how it's gonna hit the fan, but the old saw: "Get out of the city." has never seemed more appealing.


Social Security. In 2010 all the babies made from the soldiers coming home after WWII will be turning 65. It'll take a few years of inflation, and then the Feds should go completely bankrupt.

Medicare will go bankrupt before Social Security.

The only way you can ensure your continued food supply when the system chashes and burn is to have your own source of food. Because neither gold nor paper will buy you food. Noone want to take your gold or paper for food when everything collapses because they have no use for it or in other words they can not eat it. So get yourself a piece of farmland and replant it every year with excess of your crop. That is how you can ensure suvival when everying explodes in your face.

Because last time it came down from the heavens they made it so on a friday when the banks was closed and the next workday, their money was worth 1/100 of what it used to be. Whoops  :shock:!!!

Yes, I can also see it and the my Swedish government admited that my pension would be terrible. I ain't going to invest in a lost cause. If I know I will be buying rotten apple, why would I buy it? Ain't going to happen. I better start looking for black market jobs to ensure my future.

The 50s happened after ww2, the 60's happened cause of Nam, and the 70s were insane from overspill. 

The next decade is gonna be a riot.  It takes time for the generation who is service age to understand how fucked up war is, they generally have historical knowledge of it but no real experience. 

Reality is sinking in, pretty soon it will be a damn loud angry opposition but it wont be revolution.  It'll be enlightenment.  It'll be an embrace of technology and open minded attitudes.  It'll be tolerance and acceptance of other peoples personal choices.

I don't think there will be an armed revolution any time soon... maybe right before I die. I hope if we do have one it will happen while I am young so that I will be able to survive it.

Depends on how the government behaves.  The government is behaving much more like a police state now than it did in the 60s so when people do get pissed off and start to vent their frustrations, how will the government respond to them?  Our government is likely to send an armed assault team in to storm your home in order to tell you to turn your stereo down.  If there is civil unrest, I'd hate to imagine how they'd respond. 

Also there are less legal restrictions to the feds using troops than there was in the 1960s

Agreed...but I want to have some property of my own before it happens. So, in like 8-10 years would be great.

I hope to have land in 5 years... you can hang out there as long as you bring guns, ammo, and food.

Not now, but when it is, the internet will play a large role.

Can I temporarily indenture myself to you if I don't? (Sex will not be used as payment.)

So? The sex will be a gift?

Heh, that reminds me of the thinly-disguised Christian group that presented at my middle school who talked about one's virginity as a "gift" that you shouldn't give up until you were SURE SURE SURE it was the right person. Then half of the "good Christian girls" went and blew their boyfriends.

Damnit. Well, you can just hang out, help me make moonshine, and get wasted instead. As long as you do some cleaning and work I don't care. :P
