The perfect socio-economic storm
By Donald Hank
January 14, 2013

There is a perfect socio-economic storm coming and part of it is here now. Items 1-8 below are some of its components, which can be described as:

Government-incited unrest, the rush to snatch our protection, government aid to the enemy, encouragement of unlimited illegal immigration (both parties), crime rising and about to spin out of control (thanks to the above and economic factors), and unprecedented fiscal irresponsibility that led to the demise of Detroit and a half-dozen cities in CA, and heading for a potentially cataclysmic downgrade of US debt.

Here is an impartial list of the signs of the perfect storm:

1 – Obama shed tears over the death of thug Trayvon Martin, suggesting that whites are mean to blacks. Now blacks are playing knockout games and vandalizing and terrorizing even posh neighborhoods to get revenge against us for this false portrayal of whites as brutal meanies. It is escalating slowly but wait until the food stamps and welfare checks stop...

2 – Obama shed a crocodile tear over the dead at Sandy Hook but no tears over his dead ambassador whom he refused to help and no tears over Brian Terry, the border agent killed by a gun 'walked' by government agents to the cartels as part of Fast and Furious. The phony tear was the first sly step in a gun control effort, which will appear harmless at first.

3 – Obama sent billions of dollars worth of fighter planes to Egypt (see below), which is a virtual Islamic dictatorship.

4 – Obama refuses to deport all but the worst illegal alien criminals and has made no effort to protect the border. We are headed in the same direction as Greece and Spain, once arguably the most immigrant friendly nations in Europe. Today, immigrants are being abused now that no one can afford to feed them. The increasingly popular fascist party Golden Dawn wants all of them deported.

5 – There are over a million illegal alien gang bangers in US cities thanks to our lax enforcement. (We are told the illegal aliens are harmless old grannies).

6 – Obama has racked up a debt we will never pay down and has made it clear he wants to increase it. The rating agencies like Moody's, S&P and Fitch have hinted at a reduction in US bond ratings, which would increase interest rates on money we already can't pay. One percentage point higher and we are toast.

7 – Detroit and about a half-dozen cities in CA (the tip of the iceberg) are either bankrupt or on the brink. Vallejo is an example: There is no longer any police protection there.

These cities are a microcosm reflecting America in the not too distant future. So are Greece and Spain, which depend on the EU to prop them up.

No one will prop us up. It is mathematically impossible. Worse, we are the prop holding up much of the rest of the world.

8 – A first in what will be a series of moves toward gun control. It's incremental. No, they do NOT advertise it that way.

So it would appear the perfect storm is brewing:

default on US debt and failure to pay food stamps and resulting riots all over the US. But the economic failure that led to the riots also has led to inability to afford police protection.

People guns in well-to-do neighborhoods who have been denied guns for protection will be at the mercy of mobs, who will steal everything they have, burn their homes, and if they are lucky, kill them.

This is the worst case scenario, but the scariest part is that the US public is now so dumbed down that it looks like they don't see any of this happening.

Churchill said fear was the worst enemy. No, my friends, ignorance – leading to fearlessness – is by far the worst enemy.

If we had enough sense to fear the treacherous government, we would be able to defend ourselves.

But instead, we continue to trust it and are sitting ducks.

Anyone who wants any form of gun control at this point in time is, well, to put it diplomatically, suicidal. As for those living in high cost housing, you are only safe until the rioters target your area. And then only if you have a scary looking gun. They sometimes refer to this kind of gun as an assault weapon.
