Saturday Videos: Economic Collapse

12/22/2008 Update:

I added another Peter Schiff audio interview (28 min)from Real Estate Radio USA.

Although this interview was from August 2008 (and before the implosion really started) – Schiff goes on to predict that Real Estate prices have a long way to go, and may not be considered “investment properties” for at least a decade.

I’m curious to see what your points of view are.

12/20/2008:

Here are two great videos you might enjoy watching. With all the bail-outs, job losses, tax increases, real-estate bubbles bursting, debt and more – maybe you might want to know who you should be listening to.

A couple smart people have been predicting the collapse of the U.S. Economy for quite a while – yet the so-called “experts” and opposing politicians just laughed them off.

What’s wrong with our government?

CURTAIN RISES. TWO MEN, BANKS and CONGRESS, ARE AT CENTER STAGE.

BANKS: We need money.

CONGRESS: Here you go.

(long pause)

CONGRESS: Hey, that money I gave you, what are you doing with it?

BANKS: Fuck you.

You just don’t understand trickle down economics!

(By the way, I think that trickle that’s landing on us is them peeing off the balcony…)

[quote comment=”123959″]Gotta love the unbiased Wahington Post. Here is Cheney’s exact quote from the ABC interview: “As I look at the intelligence with respect to Iraq, what they got wrong was that there weren’t any stockpiles.” “What they found was that Saddam Hussein still had the capability to produce weapons of mass destruction. He had the technology, he had the people, he had the basic feed stock.” Cheney added that, given Saddam Hussein’s capabilities, reputation and track record of brutality, “this was a bad actor, and the country’s better off, the world’s better off with Saddam gone, and I think we made the right decision, in spite of the fact that the original NIE was off in some of its major judgments.” I love how you call me the kool aid drinker when you can’t even be intellectually honest about the situation. It’s not like GWB was the only one saying there were WMD. The people that also saw the intelligence all thought he did as well, as well as the UN. Do you think Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John Edwards, Tony Blair, and the rest of the people that said he had WMD and saw the same information as Bush were lying as well? Of course you wouldn’t say that, your Bush rage has blinded you too much. I don’t think the post invasion strategy was a good one, and I am glad that Petraus and Gates have righted the ship. But if you think or say… Read more »

Kool-Aid drinking was buying into Bush & Co.’s BS rah-rah sales job of the Iraq War — imminent threat, uranium from Niger, meeting in Prague regarding the 9/11 connection, etc. This has been documented as a sales job by Woodward, and acknowledged as such even by several Bush insiders who have since scaled the wall — McClellan, Dowd, even Powell to a certain extent.

Intellectual honesty was seeing through the BS.
