Government Meltdown



February 27, 2010 – Comments (5)

Colorado Springs, Colorado (CNN) -- If you come to a neighborhood park in Colorado Springs, plan on bringing your own trash bags.

To save money, the city has removed the trash cans.

Need to catch a bus? Don't try on evenings or weekends. The city has cut that service, too.

And when the sun goes down, Colorado Springs is going to look a little bit dimmer. Crews are removing a third of the city's streetlight to save money on electricity and light bulbs.

The city is even auctioning off its police helicopters on the Internet.

Want to place a bid?





More and more houses approaching zero value in more and more places around the nation as more and more lose their jobs as more and more industries become obsolete

Blockbuster - 150 More in April 

Health Care implodes as the current cost structure against evaporating revenues is simply unsustainable

Girard Medical Center Pa closing its Continuing Care Hospital - 100 Jobs Lost

Cities shut down completely and merge with larger nearby communities to save money....

The funny part is that this is the mathematical effect of the current policy and so few know or are being told.

N.J. Property Taxes Climb 70% in 11 Years

With private sector salaries flat to DOWN over the same period......making ends meet is getting harder and harder for tens of millions of Americans.  Factor Health Insurace costs at least up 100% over the same only compounds the problems facing our nation.

Health Care and Government consume OVER 2/3 of our economy.......during The Great Depression it was less than 10%.

It helps explain why government is now running a $2 trillion dollar deficit........there simply is no more money left to sustain government and health care as we know it.

It is not just America shutting down....the world as you know it is shutting  down:

The BBC will close two radio stations, shut half its website and cut spending heavily on imported American programmes in an overhaul of services to be announced next month.

If everyone cutting.....things can't be growing.
