“The Long and Winding Road” to collapse has never, in the history of our world, ever been so aggressively traveled but in the past 4 years since “Q-Infinity and Beyond” was started. Those whom have studied history recognize that the only protection is real money, gold and silver.
George Washington’s farewell address warned American’s to:
• Keep taxes and government spending low.
Instead we tolerate the counterfeiting of our currency and blank check writing which is bankrupting us forever.
• Balance your Federal Budget and avoid States debt.
Instead we are $13 Trillion in debt and the Federal accounting “cooked books” is likely $84 Trillion in actual debt. Blue states across the nation are over the brink of bankruptcy and more soon will follow.
• Beware of political parties that will separate the constituency.
Today our officials aim is to serve them while paying bribes to political cronies and supporters. They only allow corporations to compete in crony capitalism in exchange for enormous donations which ensure their reelection and political aspirations with our hard earned money.
• Do not weaken your all powerful U.S. Constitution and Amendments, they protect you!
Instead we have a President and cohorts like Chief Justice Holder who personally refuse to implement the laws of the land by not prosecuting the banksters, allowing spying, enacting decrees and signing orders which destroy our sovereignty.
• Avoid alliances & foreign military entanglements.
We police and fight for nations who are members of the International Monetary Fund in exchange for their promises to use the dollar as the reserve currency for trade. There are 10 percent of members that fail to regularly participate by using the IMF’s credit usage fees. It is not known if the countries of Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, North Korea, Sudan and Miramar have signed IMF’s Article 8, Section 234 agreement. Article 8’s enforceability is highly questionable when being interpreted whether broadly or narrowly when applied to the exchange control regulations. Simply put, when the price of oil surges it creates too much credit on oil producing countries books, and since oil is denominated in US dollars that are constantly being devalued through QE oil producing nation’s purchasing power is eroded unless they maintain higher prices.
• Don’t let differences divide the Union.
Instead they have pitted us brother against brother and father against son, Democrat against Republican, Black against White, Atheist against Christian and Muslims against all. The all powerful .001% elitist is the master manipulator and the true enemy!
• Maintain your religion, the basis of morality for your family. It will support your freedoms!
Instead we have left God out of our lives and immorality rules the masses throughout right theft, abortion and murder.
We have not adhered to any of our fore father’s words of wisdom and guidance. If only, like the prodigal son, our leaders would admit their mistakes and return home to the protections they willingly abandoned? Unfortunately our leaders will not admit their errors nor take responsibility even when all can see that collapse is imminent. Our chosen leaders are a mere reflection of ourselves, their constituency. If we truly look inside we would see that we have all failed our father’s directions and will, “suffer immense pain and surely death.” The world, in many eyes today, has never looked more desperate, lost and tumultuous.
The middle class has been systematically impoverished and our children’s futures are being destroyed through the accumulation of gigantic mountains of debt in their names. A group is fomenting the rooting out of our religious establishments, overturning our existing governments and forcing the masses into servitude so they can rule the world with uncontrollable power.
Today the U.S. debt is some 350% of our GDP while Britain and Japan’s debt is over 500% of their GDP. As the economy worsens, the interest on this debt doubles. How we will reckon with it is the unknown but for now the answer is to but print.
We were handed the keys to the greatest economic machine in the history of our planet and we have allowed one organization the Federal Reserve to destroy it. A few already know it but as our youth attempt to join the work force they are going to realize that their futures have been destroyed, many of them are going to totally lose hope and give in to despair just as the inner cities populace lost hope in the past.
The United States once had the greatest middle class in the history of the world, but now it is being murdered. This is causing a tremendous amount of anger and frustration to build in this nation. When the next major wave of the economic collapse strikes our government will leap to their preparations as they recognize what will likely be unleashed by their citizenry. As our economy continues to crumble desperate people will do desperate things. Crime will greatly increase as people do what they feel they must do in order to survive.
Most don’t understand that these problems have taken decades to develop and just want the situation fixed. Ron Paul predicted 13 years ago what is happening today. The bought media wouldn’t back him as a viable candidate and dismissed him from the 2012 elections. Now he has his own TV show on which he even reports that he owns gold and silver and no bonds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGDisyWkIBM
Our current leaders are literally throwing gasoline on a fire that has escalated to a full blown firestorm. They either have no idea what they are doing or are they complicit in the demise? Our Congress currently has the lowest approval rating in our history and they have been on vacation for 2 months. Americans are simply hoping that things will go back to the way that they used to be. Unfortunately, the great economic collapse is coming is not going to be averted. Get ready while you still can! Time is running out.
Speculation as to how present day events will unravel engulf us and fuels gossip that consumes the airwaves. Many seek a sign, something that will portend our rapidly approaching fate. The Middle East, and easily enough the entire world can see, may be the touchstone that sparks the next war.
History always follows the same story line: Depression followed by currency wars, trade wars and world wars.
How have citizens attempted to retain their wealth and minimize their suffering throughout history? They converted their holdings to gold and silver. The COMEX and the LBMA are far too short to deliver on all the paper they has been leased and sold. How much longer will you wait to protect your family?
B. Remember This About Life In Our Modern World
20 December 2012, Modern Survival Blog, by Ken (MSB)
Pasted from: http://modernsurvivalblog.com/
We have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not always better things.
We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.
Remember… spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember… say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember… to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.
Remember… to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember… to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Remember… give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Believe it or not, this was apparently written by George Carlin, and very appropriate words as we struggle with modern survival.
C. George Carlin’s “Modern Man” Rap
21 May 2011, OpenCulture.com, Lyrics via MetroSpiritual

See George Carlin perform his “rap”, “I’m a modern man”, at –
Forty years after George Carlin first stopped by The Tonight Show (1966), he made one of his last appearances, delivering a rap/poem that’s classic Carlin, a hypnotic riff on modern life and society. The lyrics appear right below.
” I’m a modern man,
A man for the millennium,
Digital and smoke free.
A diversified multicultural postmodern deconstructionist,
Politically anatomically and ecologically incorrect.
I’ve been uplinked and downloaded.
I’ve been inputted and outsourced.
I know the upside of downsizing.
I know the downside of upgrading.
I’m a high tech lowlife.
A cutting edge state-of-the-art bicoastal multitasker,
And I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond. (The rest after the jump…)
I’m new wave but I’m old school,
And my inner child is outward bound.
I’m a hot wired heat seeking warm hearted cool customer,
Voice activated and biodegradable.
I interface from a database,
And my database is in cyberspace,
So I’m interactive,
And from time-to-time,
Behind the eight ball,
Ahead of the curve,
Riding the wave,
Dodging a bullet,
Pushing the envelope.
I’m on point,
And off drugs.
I got no need for coke and speed,
I got no urge to binge and purge.
I’m in the moment,
On the edge,
Over the top,
But under the radar.
A high concept,
Medium range ballistic missionary.
A street-wise smart bomb.
A top gun bottom feeder.
I wear power ties,
I tell power lies,
I take power naps,
I run victory laps.
I’m a totally ongoing bigfoot slam dunk rainmaker with a proactive outreach.
A raging workaholic.
A working ragaholic.
Out of rehab,
And in denial.
I got a personal trainer,
A personal shopper,
A personal assistant,
And a personal agenda.
You can’t shut me up,
You can’t dumb me down.
‘Cause I’m tireless,
And I’m wireless.
I’m an alpha male on beta blockers.
I’m a non-believer and an over-achiever.
Laid back but fashion forward.
And built to last.
I’m a hands on,
Prematurely post traumatic,
And I have a love child who sends me hate mail.
But I’m feeling,
A supportive bonding nurturing primary care giver.
My output is down,
But my income is up.
I take a short position on the long bond,
And my revenue stream has its own cash flow.
I read junk mail,
I eat junk food,
I buy junk bonds,
I watch trash sports.
I’m gender specific,
And lactose intolerant.
I like rough sex.
I like rough sex.
I like tough love.
I use the f word in my email,
And the software on my hard drive is hard core, no soft porn.
I bought a microwave at a mini mall.
I bought a mini van in a mega store.
I eat fast food in the slow lane.
I’m toll free,
Ready to wear,
And I come in all sizes.
A fully equipped,
Scientifically formulated medical miracle.
I’ve been pre-washed,
And I have an unlimited broadband capacity.
I’m a rude dude,
But I’m the real deal.
Lean and mean.
Cocked, locked and ready to rock.
Rough tough and hard to bluff.
I take it slow.
I go with the flow.
I ride with the tide.
I got glide in my stride.
Drivin’ and movin’,
Sailin’ and spinnin’,
Jivin’ and groovin’,
Wailin’ and winnin’.
I don’t snooze,
So I don’t lose.
I keep the pedal to the metal,
And the rubber on the road.
I party hearty,
And lunch time is crunch time.
I’m hanging in,
There ain’t no doubt.
And I’m hanging tough,
Over and out.”
