ARE YOU AN INFORMED AMERICAN...? IF THE TRUTH BE KNOWN, I DOUBT IT.

QUOTE:

The Difficulty of Being an Informed American

By Paul Craig Roberts

The function of the “mainstream media” is to sell
products and to brainwash the audience for the
government and interest groups. By subscribing
to it, Americans support their own brainwashing.

Back to What Obama Must Do

By: Paul Krugman

This month we celebrate your arrival in the White
House; at a time of great national crisis, you bring
the hope of a better future. It's now up to you to
deliver on that hope. By enacting a recovery plan
even bolder and more comprehensive than the New
Deal, you can not only turn the economy around - you
can put America on a path toward greater equality
for generations to come. Continue

Another Real Estate Crisis Is About To Hit

By Paul Craig Roberts

The growth of debt has outpaced the growth of real
output. Yet, the solution offered by Obama’s economic
team is to expand debt further. This is not surprising
as Obama’s economic team consists of the very people
who brought on the debt crisis. Now they are going
to make it worse. Continue

A Military Dictatorship Coming To America?

By Pakistan Daily

THE WORSENING ECONOMIC CRISIS has
prompted the US Army War College to issue a
report urging the use of military troops to contain
possible civil unrest throughout America. Entitled,
Strategic Shocks in Defense Strategy Development,
issued on November 4, 2008, the report argues
that the US military must prepare for a “violent
domestic dislocation provoked by an economic
collapse.” Continue

Somber Thoughts for the New Year

Will There be a Recovery?

By Paul Craig Roberts

In the 21st century real wages have not risen. Workers
have spent more by accepting deteriorating household
balance sheets. They have maxed out their credit cards
and spent the equity in their homes. Imitators of the
US government, American consumers borrow to pay
their bills. Continue

The Crisis of Common Sense:

Is It So Difficult To Understand The Financial Crisis?

By Matthias Chang

Many have expressed to me that they are overwhelmed
by the complexity of the global financial tsunami and
are absolutely confused as to how to prepare and survive
the crisis. When I explained in simple terms, they
refused to accept the explanations as to them “it was
too simple. It must be more complicated as otherwise
how can the crisis become a global fiasco? Continue

The Collapsing US Economy

Will the Government Turn to the Printing Press?

By Paul Craig Roberts

More is to come. Credit card debt, car loans, and
commercial real estate mortgages have been securitized,
too. There is little doubt there are derivatives based
on this enormous pile of debt. As each “crisis” unfolds,
it will mean more bailout rewards for the crooks who
deep-sixed the US economy. Continue

Let's Be Honest About Abe, Shall We?

By KEN WARD

Much like Soviet-era schoolchildren who were
indoctrinated to worship Karl Marx and Vladimir
Lenin, a corpus of 16,000 books on Lincoln
conditions Americans to believe that the simple
country lawyer from Illinois honorably defended
his country and freed a race. Continue
