1.01.10....It Is Definitely Beginning

When countries are broke.......tensions rise. 

I have been blogging intermittedly about the rising tensions between Venezuela and Colombia/U.S.......  Venezuela blowing up foot bridges between the borders...Colombia permitting the U.S to access a bunch of military bases.......etc....

If Venezuela wants to stick it to Colombia..........what is the easiest thing to do?......double the price of Colombian goods in Venezuela with a simple stroke of the pen.

Venezuela's Chavez announces currency devaluation

The devaluation will affect neighboring Colombia's economy, already hit hard by diplomatic strife with Venezuela as Chavez has clamped down on bilateral trade in protest over a military cooperation deal signed by Washington and Bogota in October.

"All our exports to Venezuela will increase in price overnight," said Camilo Perez, chief economist at Banco de Bogota in Colombia. "This will be true of all countries that export to Venezuela, but Venezuela is Colombia's second biggest trade partner, so the impact will be significant here."

New York Out of Money

Illinois Out of Money

California Out of Money...Again

The problem in America, as the reserve currency and a import based nation, is if you are only devaluing your currency by giving it just to the banksters..... and the banksters hoard it and fail to restructure existing loan agreements.......buying power evaporates at all levels as wages and revenues to the nation collapse and price for just about everything you use everyday goes up due to higher oil and shipping costs.

Since America has never really run out of money before, and our dollar has always maintained its integrity.....most of you Fools have no idea what is about to happen.

Welcome to Zombulation as Benny the B only bails out his banker buddies and lets the rest of the nation rot.......amazing this might happen in the United States without the masses barely uttering a peep.

Yup....Global Warming getting hotter and hotter

CARACAS -- President Hugo Chávez said he ordered two F-16 jets to intercept a U.S. military plane that twice violated Venezuelan airspace on Friday in what he called the latest provocation in the South American nation's skies.

Brandishing a photo of the plane, which he described as a P-3, Mr. Chávez said the overflight was the latest incursion in Venezuelan skies by the U.S. military from its bases on the Netherlands' Caribbean islands and from neighboring Colombia.

There was no immediate response from the U.S. Defense Department or the White House.

Hey Al . . .

     Whenever things look grim for el Presidente Chávez he blames the Gringos. Pretty pathetic, but oil can buy you lots of press, weapons and friends.

     BTW, dunno if anyone cares, but a P-3 Orion is a maritime Navy aircraft and is not in the habit of over-flying terra firma. It a submarine and ship hunter. There is a signal intelligence EP-3, but I highly doubt we'd spend the money to deploy an sig-int aircraft on Hugo de Gigante.

     Typically signal intelligence aircraft are only employed against country (or terrorists) that we don't know much about. As the article points out, Venezuela flies U.S. made F-16s. We know quite a bit of what is going on there -- no underwear bomber CIA lapses in this hemispheric socialist country.

BUT . . . that's not to say our beloved President won't shake things up to divert attention from our financial debacle and rattle Chávez's cage.
