9.09....Not Much Time Left



August 10, 2009 – Comments (19)


 LANSING — Michigan tax revenue for July came in about $50 million less than expected, the Senate Fiscal Agency said today.

That was hard to foresee...just wait until California gives you its revised figures.....

Detroit Mayor Dave Bing today told union leaders that all of his appointees will take a 10% pay cut effective Sept. 1, and he needs the approximately 10,000 unionized city workers to do the same by Aug. 28.

Revenues are drying up to our Federal, State, and Local Governments...FAST!!!  Paycuts, Firings, and Furloughs are destroying social security and medicare/aid revenues.  Even Donner furloughed his employees 20% leading to less taxes to government.

Tax receipt estimates less than a month old are proving overly optimistic.  Our nation's governments are running out of money fast.  GOVERNMENT SPEND MAKES UP OVER HALF THE CURRENT GDP. 

With the population aging and millions losing employment, the demands on governments are increasing daily.  It is clear that our collective deficit will exceed OVER $3 Trillion dollars this year AND GROWING.   There is no other nation on earth that can fund this amount.  Our Primary dealers have been taking on our debt by TAXPAYERS giving them the money.....think about that one for a second....  But the transparency of the fraud will not go unchecked and lead to total destruction of our dollar.

Now that the Primary Dealers are holding more of our debt than any other nation on earth....they want to be paid....and not with paper.  They will make strong demands....look at the demands Paulson made and received recently. 

The problem is the income from taxpayers is simply insufficient to fund this defict...soon it will be time for Obama to tax our assets.....

Get ready for the know....ask what you can do for your country?.....your entire savings will be a good start for now.

Can you imagine what is next?

 Pet store shut over sales-tax nonpayment

“At this time we have no money and we are not allowed to open to raise the money. STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.”

Dr. Doolittle’s is one of the 1,092 businesses the state recently ordered to close on the spot for falling behind in their sales-tax payments.

More and more are running out of money.....fewer and fewer can pay taxes.....the demands on government are rising.......Congress wants its new planes.....the bankers want to be paid the interest on the bonds we just gave them.....

Soon you too will realize that even every dime in your bank account is not enough.

Jesus, Moses, and Allah could use your help too.....

From the WSJ:

Across the country, congregations of all sizes and denominations are struggling with issues of faith and finance as the recession grinds on. Churches are scouring their budgets for wasteful spending. And many, like Bent Tree, have taken the unusual step of reducing staff.

While the collection plate no longer overflows, churches are seeing an increase in requests for support -- be it for spiritual guidance, monetary help or career advice. And religious leaders have the added task of explaining job losses and pay cuts in spiritual terms.

Churches, synagogues and mosques have historically fared reasonably well during recessions, even as other institutions struggled. But the magnitude of the current downturn has caught up with places of worship, too.

The market will move sideways for a couple of years and then slowly start moving up over a period of 10 years.  At or around the 10 year point, there will be another real estate bubble'/top.

This is my first comment on this blog Alstry - I'll keep count for you if need be.

I don't think you get it sweetie pie....there is no money. 
This has never happened in America looking back at American history provides little WWI Germany is a good guide if you choose to look.

The day the bankers cut off Obama from spending trillions he doesn't have....our nation shuts down and the bankers own America, all of its farmland and natural resources and gets to cut everyone off of welfare, social security, unemployment and food stamps....most will be begging in the streets for food...and likely and you too.

You seem to want to evade the will America keep spending now that it is not producing much and running out of money?

I can guarantee you this, if a politician has to choose between your net worth and his are broke tomorrow.

Glenn Beck was insightful today on his radio show ... said that now more than ever we need to know where we stand on the issues .. which 'side' are you on, if you will.  He said, "pretty soon we're going to be forced to take a side, Obama's going to make you take a side" .. He didn't say more than that .. but he's just stressing that everyone get armed with information.  Glenn comes on at 9:00 EST M-F .. the best part of his show is the first hour.  In the NYC area he's on 710 AM.  Not saying I agree with all of what Beck says/does, but he's usually pretty bold and just gives a much different perspective than the (state-run) main stream media.

FYI .. Hannity is doing a special toninght on the Town Hall violence from last week.  Show's on now ... 9:00 EST

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Last summer, police responding to complaints about campfires under a highway overpass found dozens of homeless people living on public land along the Cumberland River.

Eviction notices went up -- and then were suspended by Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, a Democrat, who said housing for the homeless should be found first.

A year later, little has been found -- and Nashville, with help from local nonprofits, is now servicing a tent city, arranging for portable toilets, trash pickup, a mobile medical van and visits from social workers. Volunteers bring in firewood for the camp's 60 or so dwellers.

Property owners have seen their St. Paul levy amounts increase by 9 percent, 15.1 percent and 8 percent in the past three years, respectively. The maximum property-tax levy will need to be set by the City Council by Sept. 9.


As many as 45 people could be laid off early next year.

Despite the cuts, Coleman also mentioned that St. Paul is saving money through energy conservation in city buildings, that it won't see any library closings next year and that it received $7.5 million in federal grants to pay for 34 police officers over the next three years.



WASHINGTON -- House leaders late Monday dropped plans to spend $550 million on Air Force passenger planes for use by senior government officials, a sum that more than doubled the Pentagon's official request and had drawn strong public criticism.

Tension mounted Monday in southern Lebanon after Israeli forces reportedly advanced to the area of the Shaba farms, forcing the Lebanese army on alert, a Lebanese army source said.

The source said three armored Israeli vehicles, accompanied by a civilian car, advanced towards Shaba Farms, located at the junction of south-east Lebanon, south-west Syria and northern Israel.

The Lebanese army, stationed on its side of the border, has been placed on high alert, deploying tanks and positioning soldiers inside fortifications, the Lebanese military source added.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday denied reports that tensions were increasing between Israel and Lebanon, but stressed that the government in Beirut would be seen as responsible for any attacks on Israeli targets, including attacks perpetrated by Hezbollah.

What better place to start MOAP than where Jesus turned the water into wine.....just in time for 9.09.

To be classified as MOAP, it just can't be any ole will have to be accepted as WW3.

"The winds of war are beginning to blow… I am not going to allow them to do to Venezuela what they did to Ecuador," Hugo Chavez said on Monday at the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) talks in Quito, referring to a 2008 Colombian raid on a guerrilla camp in Ecuador.

"We would respond militarily and decisively if the pro-war forces in Colombia, egged on by the United States, dare to launch aggression against Venezuela."

Let's not forget Georgia, Iran, and Pakistan just to add some fuel to be included in the MOAP fire.

Not just any world war.....a MOAP world war....

BEIRUT: Western intelligence sources in the Middle East have disclosed to DEBKAfile that a special unit of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), commissioned by Hizbullah’s special security apparatus earlier this year, was responsible for the massive discovery of alleged Israel spy rings in Lebanon in recent months with the help of “super-efficient” detection systems.

DEBKAfile is an Israeli, Occupied Jerusalem-based English-language open source military intelligence website with commentary and analyses on terrorism, intelligence, security, and military and political affairs in the Middle East.

The sources told DEBKAfile last week that the FSB and Hizbullah have “amassed quantities of undisclosed data” on Israel’s clandestine operations in Lebanon and “are holding it in reserve in order to leak spectacular discoveries as and when it suits their purpose.”

“This disclosure, if borne out, would indicate that the Russian agency, which specializes in counterespionage, is engaged for the first time in anti-Israel activity in the service of an Arab terrorist organization,” DEBKAfile said.

An Israeli security source described this turn of events extremely grave, Debkafile reported. It also cast an ominous slant on Moscow’s deepening strategic involvement in Syria.

“It was generally assumed until now that new electronic devices supplied by France to the Lebanese Army were instrumental in uncovering the suspected Israeli spy rings,” the DEBKAfile report said.

“It now transpires that the Lebanese Army was not directly involved; it only detained the suspects handed over by the Shiite Hizbullah,” it added.

Those same sources disclosed to the Israeli news website that FSB agents, “by blanketing every corner of Lebanon with their sophisticated surveillance systems, were able to detect the spy rings one by one and additionally hack into Israeli intelligence data bases.”

We can't leave the Russians out.....can we?

A total economic collapse works as well.

I think Chavez is just talking crap, to be honest about it. He always does that. He always talking smack and just full of bravado. But he has yet to advance beyond the stage of talking smack, so it remains to be seen whether he would ever actually ratchet things up past the level of idle smack.

And now you've got Hezbollah having established a firm base in South America, you've got half the Russian navy having visited Venezuela over the past few years, so there's all this stuff going on and there's  no doubt but that there's crap being stirred down there, and we certainly are not exempt from that stirring either. A Venezuela-Colombia war would be very interesting, that's for sure, and  when was the last time there was a major international  war in South America?

Alstry has many interesting observations and I see many that appear to agree with him and many that bash him.  I have one question for those who don't see things quite the same as Alstry.  What is the solution?  How does the US (heck the world) solve the ever increasing debt crisis?  Governments are printing an unprecedented amount of money and accumulating an unprecedented amount of debt.  So...will the governments all come up with a grand plan to solve it? 

 Just searching for answers

#17 - In my opinion the solution is to restructure the debt.  Very much in line with what Alstry[nomics] says several times per day.

Most of those "who don't see things quite the same as Alstry" don't have an issue with the facts provided, but rather the "over the top" conclusions, the ranting, the claiming that nobody "get's it", and the ever popular "you have been warned"

In addition, one who makes statements and claims many things that fail to materialize only loses integrity when they do not address, or take the actions that they claimed they would/will.

And because Alstry[nomics] has been counting my comments - this is my first comment on this blog.  Today.  So far.
