Hyperinflation: What It Looks Like

Zimbabwe inflation is running at over 200 million per cent. Unemployment is at 80%. Check out  these pix from Boncherry.com:

This poor guy’s going to do the week’s shopping at the supermarket. All that cash is worth less than $100 USD. A few months later inflation has driven up the price of this dinner for one to a shade over 1.2 billion Zimbabwe dollars. Before tip!

Want a new T shirt? Too bad you waited a few weeks…it’ll cost you 3 billion Zimbabwe dollars after tax!

What should the government do about this rampant inflation? I know, print up more money:
Say hello to the new 100 billion dollar note! You know your currency’s in trouble when you have to put the month, day AND year on it!

And it still ain’t worth the paper it’s printed on!

But don’t be too quick to laugh. We in the US are looking a some serious inflation heading our way as well. Dollar Death Warning


EZ Way 2 Tell If Obama Will B Different

Will an Obama presidency be substantially different from, say, the criminal Bush43 presidency, or, if he’d won, a criminal McCain one?

C’mon, you know what I think… the **position** of POTUS (President of the United States) is the most powerful leadership mantle in the world. But–the **person** who occupies the POTUS position is **not** all that powerful. POTUS is a figurehead for the masses (us), but in all things significant he does the bidding of the Shadow Powers.

So, will Obama be different? Does he possess a secret immunity to the Shadow Powers?

Here’s any easy way to tell even before he takes office: watch who he names as the new Secretary of the Treasury.

The Treasury Sec heads up the Plunge Protection Team and is responsible for manipulating the markets and precious metals to manage the collapse on behalf of the Shadow Powers. The Shadow Powers use JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs for their proxy in market manipulation.

If the newly-named Sec Treas has either of these two bully-banks on his or her resume GAME OVER. An Obama presidency will be business as usual.

P.S. Remember, with the Democrats in control of the House, the Senate, and the Presidency they allegedly have the power to do what the people want: bring the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan. If WtP (We the People) are still in control of our gov’t they can get this done by January 31.

They won’t.

Peace will NOT suddenly break out. They will have excuses: they always do. It’s too late now to save this country, the collapse must run its course first. Then WtP can rebuild anew. It’ll be painful, and although WtP of these United States will be half as wealthy we’ll be twice as spiritual.

Check out this
Bloomberg story. It says, in part:

Obama’s Bailout Bunch Brings Us More of the Same: Jonathan Weil
…by my tally, almost half the people on Obama’s economic advisory board have held fiduciary positions at companies that, to one degree or another, either fried their financial statements, helped send the world into an economic tailspin, or both. Do you think any of that came up in the vetting? [

Many of them should be getting subpoenas as material witnesses right about now, not places in Obama’s inner circle. Did Obama learn nothing from the ill-fated choice of James Johnson, the former Fannie Mae boss, to lead his vice- presidential search committee?

***UPDATE: 11/24/2008.
It’s official: Timothy Geithner is
named treasury secretary.  He does NOT have Goldman Sachs on his resume. He does NOT have JPMorgan Chase on his resume. Unfortunately for “we the people” he is currently employed as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York AND as Vice Chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee. He is still an INSIDER and has been instrumental in creating the “Housing Bubble” through his advocation of prolonged low interest rates.

It looks like “business as usual” in the Obama administration, to me.
