11.10.9...Farmers sell wives to pay debts



October 24, 2009 – Comments (4)

It is a scene from times of old, but still the way many farmers operate in rural India, where the harvest often determines feast or famine.

The region is called Bundelkhand, spanning the two northern Indian states of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. It is here that drought, debt and desperation have pushed people to extremes.


When a nation runs a $2 Trillion dollar deficit(more than the economy of India)...AND.....revenues to its corporations are declining.....80% of its college grads can't find jobs......60% of its architects not working......banks closing around the nation with many more lined up behind.......cities, counties, and states seeing tax receipts evaporate......poverty exploding...and now jobs and wages are being slashed in practically every sector of the economy as taxes and expenses are going up???

The trend is very negative....don't you think????...And if we keep printing.....the dollar could collapse and society as we know it will vaporize.

The difference between today and The Great Depression is about half of America is dependent on government spending for income...THAT IS RIGHT, MOST OF US ARE SIMPLY A BUNCH OF WELFARE RECIPIENTS DIRECTLY OR The Great Depression, it was very few.  Now government and health care is starting to slash as revenues and tax receipts implode.

It is not the end of the world, just the end of the world as you know it as poverty starts skyrocketing around America AND your government officials need more and more of YOUR money to pay their incomes.

11.10.9.....When YOU America, and much of the world, continues shutting down as the biggest Ponzi scheme in World History begins to unfold.

I saw yesterday that economists are predicting  a plus 3.4% growth rate for the US economy in the third quarter of this year.

Isn't it odd that the economy can grow by 3.4% when the workforce is shrinking and the workers who are working are working fewer hours per week?  Who is doing all the extra work to make the economy grow?  It all sounds just a bit too miraculous to me.

Thank you for bringing it up...I have in the past and I will in the future acknowledge  For regular readers of this blog.....they know.


It is even more fantastic that they are forecasting growth when revenues to families, corporations, cities, counties, states, and hospitals are now shrinking.  I thought growth was expanding revenues...but this must be a shrinking revenue recovery.

I am certain, welfare, unemployment, and military expenditures will increase if we continue with current Zombulation policies.
