THE TRILLION-DOLLAR QUESTION
Economic Flat Earth thinking: The primary cause of the current global meltdown and why you are more or less on your own.
WHAT IS A TRILLION DOLLARS AGAINST A $310 BILLION TAX CUT?
Only since it was discovered that three trillion dollars somehow ‘wasn’t there’ in the military economy did the Mainstream media (MSM) start teaching us that it wasn’t really that much – suddenly, the bailout, the assessments, whatever, are all in the trillions.
But not before we were scared by the seven hundred billion bailout figure and ho, ho, ho (it’s Christmas) lulled by the three hundred and ten billion dollars in tax cuts.

Why would a man, who must have had some fairly profound insights into the mechanisms of the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC), make such a statement?
It is common cause that war is extremely profitable. Individual, powerful people as well as organizations and governments, get very rich on the commodities of war.

Spent largely on American arms.
We now know that the first to suffer from any economic imbalances are our schools and roads, the salaries of our teachers and policemen and firemen, our savings.
(See or Google Eisenhower’s “military-industrial complex” speech.)

We are now in the ‘end time’ of a 300-year Capitalist era of uninterrupted growth.
