Over just the last few days, economic news has flatlined strongly suggesting another crash may be on the horizon. Yet ANOTHER cop has been caught executing a black man, then lying about it, unaware the whole thing was caught on tape. And the verdict for the Boston Bomber is due any minute, even though the less stable out there are still harping on how it didn't happen as well as Sandy Hook School nonsense. Some people are really gullible.
This also brings up another point that every single person I know in the military agrees with: ex-military make terrible police officers. Slager is an ex-marine meaning he is a trained killer, as the video shows. Being a cop means putting yourself in harms way first, not kill anyone who pissed you off. One of the reasons for the slew of bad press is people becoming cops who should never be in the force in the first place. One of the best jobs I ever had, and the best boss, was an ex-cop who quit the force after they kept hiring morons, and dangerous ones at that, because of racial quotas or because they were ex-military. In a weird coincidence, one of the same people he quit over was the same cop who beat the crap out of two of my friends for no reason and then lied about the whole thing. Small world. I don't hate cops by any means. However, I have had the misfortune of meeting some terrible police officers in my day, including one who got fired for the way he handled my case, dragging me through two years of court with zero evidence and harassing my witnesses. His dress down by the judge was a favorite moment of mine. I can only imagine how the black community must feel.
In it, some enterprising person familiar with math actually looked at the government numbers and were shocked to discover they were all fake. Unemployment numbers? Bullshit. Inflation rates? Total crap. And the Wall St economists who predicted all of this? Wrong nearly 50% of the time. Wow, my local forecaster has better odds than that predicting the weather two weeks out. As always the government quietly revised their unemployment numbers way down to a dismal 189,000 of which approximately 100,000 do not exist, or "phantom jobs" as they are called. Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of statistics knows the birth death model is woefully antiquated and 90% of the new jobs being created are minimum wage.
Many, like Australia, are talking about negative interest rates, like some European banks have done, meaning you will have to pay banks for the privilege of having an account. It seems a very bad idea as I can't see a lot of Americans having a bank account at that point. Bit coin here I come at that point.
Lastly, Dzhokhar Tsataev has been found guilty of everything and now faces an almost certain death penalty charge as well. There are still some weak minded individuals who think this whole thing was staged, commenting on backpacks and some weak videos, not to mention crisis actors, smoke bombs and fake blood. Sigh. I know people who were there as I live in the area. It happened just like they said it did. There is no conspiracy. Let it go. There are still some beating a dead horse over Sandy Hook as well, my favorite being the school was actually closed since 2008. Think about how stupid a statement that is. I have no kids but I live near several schools. If any one them closed, I would notice. So for that school to have closed since 2008 and no one living nearby noticing is full on fantasy mode. There are real conspiracies out there. Neither of these are it.
