Let's Talk Economics...


     So I just recently came upon this link and I every American should definitely read this, and everyone else too so that they can laugh at those silly Americans! Mwahaha....

     I've been hearing a lot about the economy about to collapse, and it definitely kicked in when I watched the College Conspiracy video on "Life's Questions" (Great blog btw, you all should definitely check that out as well). 
    What I like most about that link is that I agree that things should go back to the way they were. America was much better off when people could compete for business instead of having to be regulated by government. It destroys the basic idea of a Free Market in a Capitalist system. The government just needs to back off and let people try to run their own businesses, its survival of the fittest, and the government shouldn't help out every company that was doomed to fail.    
    This whole economic shit hole that has risen has even led me to consider joining the military. I have no way to pay for college, I have a job, but there's no way that job can pay me through college, and I don't want to end up with some stupid loans I'll be paying back the rest of my life. I feel the military is a safe bet, but I'd be trying to go NROTC instead of just enlisting. 
     I think I'm just going to keep working for the next year and investing all that money in gold stocks. I've looked at the shares and they've been steadily increasing for the past 20 years (that's as far as the chart would let me see) so it seems like a sure thing. I figure it'd be better than letting my money sit in the bank getting 0.001 interest or something lame like that. In 10 years I'll probably sell it all, and by then who knows how bad things will be. I think it's just good to plan for the future, especially when you have a good idea of what's about to come. Bye bye America. (The economy anyways...)

Peace, V.


  1. It should be very interesting to see who cracks first, but I hope they put politics behind them and sort out the budget for the good of your nation!

  2. It's gonna be interesting to see how America picks up the pieces after everything goes to rock bottom crapout.

    My main curiosity is in which rascals are going to somehow retain their lofty positions within our federal political level. They're the ones (and special interest groups and their lobbyists) who led us down this path of fucked-upness...but how the people respond is gonna be the real tell.

    Are they going to rise up in protest or will the apathy continue?

    I'm just sayin'.

  3. The Republicans are unable to put politics behind them, unfortunately. Than again, I also think that the capitalist system is completely broken and needs to be done away with.

  4. I am poor, so this won't affect me very much, I'm afraid.

  5. Im actually excited to see how this mess unfolds.

  6. I can see it coming.
    The economy is about to fall.

  7. America's economy has been on the down turn for a long time now... just a matter of time before it collapses completely... I'm not sure there is even anything we can do...

  8. The republicans are just playing a stupid game at the moment, they're not going to let the country's economy collapse... or at least I hope they're more competent than that...

  9. hope you get your economy back on the feet...
    but I dont see a way at the moment...

  10. Link is 404d...but I am pretty peeved about the economy situation. I think we should all call the credit card companies and request that our credit limits be raised in proportion to the debt ceiling!
