What does all this have to do with the FEMA camps that have erected all over the country or Obama's shift to focus on "homegrown terrorism" as stated in his National Security speech a couple of weeks back?
How do natural disasters affect banks? With over $220 trillion dollars in derivatives on the books of the big four banks in the US, just one bad bet could mean the end of FDIC and with the Cyrpus style bail-in legal framework in place in the Dodd Frank Act, we could all see our savings evaporate. What kind of civil unrest would that cause?
See this article:
In March, 's science advisers sent him a list of recommendations on climate change. No. 1 on the list: "Focus on national preparedness for climate change."

(Buy oil stocks. Make their price go up so high that it bursts. So that every American starts to feel the pain so they will wake up and realize that we are under attack, in a war, and our monetary and foreign policy have been hijacked by foreign cartels. We are so blind to the truth because no one in the mass media will come out and say it. Why? Because the 5 major media companies in the US are owned in part by the same banker cartels that caused the crisis, got the bailouts, and are now laughing their ass off while we plunder into oblivion. If we let it go any further this will look much worse than World War II. This will generate riots greater and more fierce than after the Vietnam War. This will drive us further into debt until we are broke. And the last time a superpower went broke it was 1989. tianemen square, velvet revolution, fall of the berlin wall, romania, hungary, Panama, all fell to the American Empire that our presidential military industrial complex is running. Eisenhower warned of the Congressional military industrial complex but the president can assassinate with drones. He is showing off to the Pentagon with his CIA, covert, secret operations. Meanwhile our own military is telling us to GET OUT of the middle east but they cant make the decision. Only the president can. And we are in the middle east to protect Saudi Arabia and the banking cartels oil investment with Saudi Aramco. Was it on their behalf that we invaded Iraq? Or wa that just to provoke Iran into war? Wil the Iran war be a distraction from further financial rape here at home? Last time there was a war, Dick Cheney made $1.2 trillion dollars disappear from the Pentagon.
Then Hank Paulson and his Federal Reserve loaned domestic and international banks $26 trillion dollars. Much of which is now held at the central banks all around the world. As soon as they release that money to the market, it will be another boom.
And who got the MF Global customer money when they went bankrupt? JP Morgan. Who pays the attorneys that run the trustee and bankruptcy proceedings. And who losses? Minnesota Farmers? Jon Corzine, former governor and former head of Goldman Sachs knows EXACTLY how to steal and get away with it.
JP Morgan knows how to leverage Corzine to steal for them. And guess who benefited the most from processing government loans to students? JP Morgan. And guess who got the biggest bailout? JP Morgan. And guess who owns JP Morgan stock?
The same people that own Shell Oil stock. Don't you see? They have rigged our laws, our courts, our congress, our elections, our banking, our monetary and foreign policy. We have been occupied!
Our government and economy are being controlled by a small group of very savvy psychopaths that know how to make money betting on both sides of every battle.
Every time somebody comes out with the truth, they get ignored by the mass media. Which then makes it conspiracy theory, until knowledge of the truth crosses the chasm and reaches the tipping point of revolution.
We must convince Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to work together to take control of our country, or we will end up like Greece - a victim of financial rape. We should hope we can turn out like India and keep control of our money supply and defend our borders and reach enlightenment. Otherwise, we are likely to suffer much more than we already have. We may end up like Russia in 1914 or Libya in 2011 or Iraq in 2003, Syria in 2012, . Can't you see the world is already at war. this is the beginning of world war 3 and if we are not careful we could all end up dust in the wind.

Its happening. The fallout of the financial crisis of 2008 is finally unfolding around the world. Expect to see 3-10 EU nations default by December 2011
“BDO’s cozy relationship with the Stanford Financial Group
was steeped in conflicts of interest and required ongoing
deception and duplicitous manipulation of the facts to enable
the Ponzi scheme to grow exponentially for over a decade,”
investors said in the complaint. “The result is the loss of
thousands of investors’ life savings.”

Great News: US Manufacturing Wages Will Be Lower Than China's in 5 yrs @collapse #peakoil @chrislhayes @maddow
Really? The BCG study suggests that US manufacturing workers are 3x more productive than China's, that their wages are growing rapidly, and that companies are opening plants in the US because labor is so cheap.
Chinese manufacturing cant grow 17% a year for 5 yrs without ENERGY and we understand that China is facing the worst energy crisis ever.
So where will the US get all the natural resources and steel needed to manufacture goods? Especially with oil costing more than $120 a barrel?
Ok, here is the jobs plan from US politicians.
Oh, but wait it also says this: If the U.S. can not maintain or expand its wide productivity advantage vs. China the the projections quoted are likely to be modified to the detriment of U.S. manufacturing.
That means US Sweat Shops Likely - productivity means more hours, no unions, no healthcare, etc. USD drops and thats good for us! Yahoo.
A key factor in the U.S. manufacturing resurgence comes from labor productivity, which is more than 3x that of China. With the wages in China growing at a much higher rate than in the U.S. the productivity advantage is drawing domestic production back home, especially for the "more sophisticated" producrs mentioned in the FT article.
Among the U.S. corporations mentioned by the FT which have announced plans for major investments in new U.S. manufacturing are Caterpillar, General Electric and Ford. In the first quarter of 2011 manufacturing production in the U.S. rose by 9.1% (annual rate), making it the fastest growing segment in the U.S. economy.
On May 5, as discussed at GEI Analysis by Steven Hansen, The BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) reported an unexpected drop in labor productivity growth. Productivity is a key component of the projections for manufacturing reported in this news brief. If the U.S. can not maintain or expand its wide productivity advantage vs. China the the projections quoted are likely to be modified to the detriment of U.S. manufacturing.
The BCG study says that Chinese manufacturing wage costs seem likely to rise 17 per cent a year in the next five years, compared with only 3 per cent a year in the US.Read more at econintersect.com

Does this explain why cities and states and the federal government are suffering so much in terms of their budget? Or is it overspending? Or both.
Taxes as a percentage are lower. The number of taxpayers are fewer (with greater unemployment) but expenditures are greater with significant defense and military spending (WAR), poor performance of state pension funds (invested in AAA rated mortgage backed securities), union contracts (which support seniority rather than performanced based pay), the financial bailout (TARP - which has been paid back to a great degree), and skyrocketing healthcare costs affecting Medicare and Medicaid. Social Security is in good shape.
So why the all out class warfare by the right on planned parenthood, and public pension plans?
Why the ignorant defense of unions by the left?
We need to come together and solve the country's problems. Not distract from the real issues with partisan politics.
#Peakoil is real and we will need to DRAMATICALLY change the way we live. SOON.
Our pursuit for any oil and gas and minerals (WAR in Iraq and Afghanistan) to fund our continuous plan for growth is NOT SUSTAINABLE with depleting natural resources. Our current economic model cannot run without energy.
By one measure, federal taxes lowest since 1950
WASHINGTON — Think your taxes are too high? As a share of the nation's economy, Uncle Sam's tax take this year will be the lowest since 1950.

And for the third straight year, American families and businesses will pay less in federal taxes than they did under President George W. Bush, thanks to a weak economy and a growing number of tax breaks for the wealthy and the poor.

#peakoil is catching up with the us govt. Qe3 will not be sustainable because No One wants to buy the USD as BRICS are pushing to trade oil and other energy with a mixed basket of currencies, rather than USD.
So what are US banks doing?
PIMCO's Bill Gross Says to Sell U.S. Treasuries Now
Second, he recently released his market commentary for March where he makes another market call that is probably also worth following. To wit, he predicts that when the Fed’s QE2 bond-buying binge ends at the end of June, there will be nobody to take the Fed’s place as last-resort buyer of U.S. Treasuries at artificially low rates. Treasury yields will need to ramp up sharply by 1.5 percentage points to attract private buyers. Given that the ten-year U.S. Treasury is currently yielding only 3.5%, a 1.5 percentage point jump would equal a 43% increase in interest rates (1.5/3.5). That’s a big move in interest-rate land and would have a significantly negative effect on bond prices.

The Chinese own more than $1 trillion worth of U.S. Treasury bonds. That's a lot of moola at risk for a price decline. I don't envy China at this point in the interest-rate cycle!
