My Sheep......Did You Enjoy The Industrial Age?

Most of you have jobs because your employer is borrowing money to pay you or your employers customers are borrowing money to buy from your employer.

For the rest....many of you have lost jobs, incomes, and livlihoods as evidenced by another approximately 500,000 Americans losing jobs this week....week after week month after month.

Most of you just didn't give a damn as long as it was't you....but now are learning that if enough are not working....under the present system sales and tax receipts will evaporate unless we are borrowing trillions of dollars to spend.

Unfortunately, there is only so much money left after giving the banker trillions of dollars that now the money is simply running out system wide as evidenced by practically every city, county and state in the nation facing unprecedented financial crisis.

This is nonsense Alstry was blogging about LAST YEAR before he died warning you about the train wreck coming your way while CNBC and the English Majors where shoving it to you up your lubriacated sheepness.

At some point, America and Americans cannot live on the success of prior Industrial Age generations and maintain this current entitlement mentality....it is our job to stake our own claim in this increasing Global Digital Age as Government, Bankers and Wall Street destroy the little savings we have left.

It's OK to be sheep....we are all sheep in one way or the other.....but it is unconsionable to bury head in the sand that once you realize you are a sheep and fail to act on it.

We have avoided our responsibility of citizens and simply let our nation deteriorate right in front of our eyes as we permitted the rule of law to break down in a manner never seen before in American Histroy.

Wake up my fellow sheep....it is time to become a citizen....the Digital Age is here...it will be exciting.

I thought addressing everybody as 'sheep' was humorous at first... but now I'm beginning to find it a bit tiresome. Why not try mixing it up a bit: Sheeple, drones, etc. are perfectly adequate substitutes.

In addition, sheperds should be careful about incessantly preaching to their flock -- the risk is that one realizes that one is merely another sheep who thought himself a sheperd

From above:

crazy times indeed....our whole system is morally, economically, and financially bankrupt.......

As the bankers get billions in bonuses and the politicians get raises.....

it is not hard to see where this is going....the population will only suffer crashing wages and rising taxes for so long before they revolt.....

even the sheep.

It's all in good fun, alstry. No offense taken and none intended -- I was just getting a bit tired of being addressed as 'sheep', that's all.

I know you are...., trust me, it is the intended result.....how do you think I feel knowing we are lubricated sheep and few really give a damn.......

so now we are going to extend medicare and unemployment....and there is no money to pay either....

how do you think all the independent contractors and small business owners feel who don't get such payments?

Or the nurses who are about to go on strike?

It is a mess and about to get messier....

Actually, now that I re-read the title, it makes me chuckle audibly ;-)

Your criticism is turning to a destructive tone and with increasing generalizations as well as condemnations of "most of you".

You don't really know what people think and do, so I think going this route is just self-serving to your thesis.

And I agree it is getting tiresome. I'll proceed to my own preparations for what is to come, helping those I am able to help.

My blog is about  raising awareness....no more and no less as stock picking has become irrelevant in a morally corrupt market.....at all levels.

If those that can see don't speak up.....then who will.

Right now most of the nurses in Minneapolis are about to go on strike....so it will spread across the nation.....

The it will be cops...firemen...etc.....

At some point, you can only cut wages and raise the cost of living so much while giving practically unlimited money to a few before the entire system breaks down.

My concern is the reaction when the system inevitably breaks down.
