Where we won't need schools....can anyone say its time for online?

Parsippany School District - 45 Possible Job Cuts

Kankakee School District 111 - Notifies Teachers of Layoffs

Anderson Community Schools Indiana - 125

Wayne School District NJ - Teacher Layoffs Likely

The Roxana School District - 28 Possible

Schaumburg Township Elementary District 54 - 130

East Grand School District - 17

Seaside School District - 16

Update: The Jordan School District - 250+

The Kern High School District - 10

We actually won't need cities, counties and states...but that might be a bit too much for Fools to handle right now.  You already know most of the video stores and book stores have or will be shutting down soon.  Same with many newspapers.  Next will be bank branches, many many retailers, and offices of a variety of businesses.

Expect most printed matter, including cash, to become obsolete in the next few years... 

When the World Color Press facilities in Salem and Mt. Vernon closed a decade ago some of the workers moved to Tennessee to take a job at the former Quebecor World facility in Dyersburg.  Now that plant is closing as well. 

The announcement was made on Friday and will displace 668 workers by the end of the first quarter of 2011.  The Dyersburg State Gazette says the closure comes just two months after the announcement that Quad/Graphics, Incorporated would acquire Worldcolor.  

The newspaper says the Mayor of Dyersburg and Dyer County as well as the Chamber President were aware of 'talk' regarding the future of the plant and had been in contact with state, federal and other officials for many weeks in an effort to keep the Dyersburg plant open.  Chamber President Allen Hester says Plant Manager Susan Dew assured local leaders the decision to close was not the fault of anyone at the local level, but rather Worldcolor was being effected by an industry reduction in the amount of material being printed.

AND OUR CURRENT FORM OF GOVERNMENT AND CONSTITUTION TO BE DISCARDED FOR A MORE DIGITALLY CENTRIC SYSTEM APPLIED GLOBALLY.

ON A POSTIVE NOTE....THERE WILL BE NO INCOME TAX IN THE DIGITAL AGE...BUT  DON'T EXPECT MUCH INCOME EITHER AS MOST OF THE THINGS YOU CURRENTLY PLACE VALUE IN WILL EITHER BE WORTHLESS OR CONFISCATED BY GOVERNMENT FIRST.

But before we can enter the digital age, we must expericence the third and final collapse before we get rid of the industrial age........the government collapse.

First it was America's most important asset....the house.

Next it was the banking collapse only to be kept on life support by allowing banks to lie about the assets on their books.

Finally it is here...the government collapse as Greece is in turmoil and the unrest is spreading... protests in Portugal, Spain, France and Italy...and strikes are beginning in England with both airline and train workers.

Warships are in position.....our boots are on the ground....the skypeople in Oklahoma are now very accurate with the drones......most of the exercises have been completed......and if you think your guns and food will be effective in such an environment......few of you are prepared for what is coming.

Again, it is not the end of the world.....simply the end of a world as you know it.

I see what you are seeing, but there is hope, and it doesn't have to be :: ...after taking shots from drones on the way out the door to pick up your paper, you decide to finally be forced to get all your news online which is (hypothetically) regulated by the same (or in some way connected to) people flying the drones and you are without your knowledge even being brainwashed by the very things that you are watching or reading.

On that mentality, there are few books other than reference that I trust and only after drawing my consensus on a topic (kind of like the news and which channels to watch)...however, I would still like to think that there is a way for everyone to learn how to work SYNERGISTICALLY together in this world for a greater good.  And I'm working as hard as I can to do my part (and it's costing me my health, money, life basically, and I am receiving NO public or private assistance (only FEDERAL student loan money, and family - though that resource is no longer responsible at my 30yrs of age) yet I hardly have food or the time for it anyhow...

I think I am a great example of many things (not perfect by any means;) - and I believe in my heart, soul, and am, and will continue to fight for alternatives to just sitting back and preparing for this 'horrible' image of this new 'world as you know it' that is portrayed. (Why should 'Fighting' for something good be fighting at all??? Who's the bad guy then???) A MAJOR part of that is splitting my time between school and EDUCATION which is SO important and MAKING A DIFFERENCE...unfortunately, neither school or making a difference actually give you a paycheck, just a large chunk of debt. 

I'm still not sure that you support your theory completely, just that it is a logical, solid theory based on the facts...and based on factual numbers and statistics, it does seem like an incredibly difficult task to overcome and make a difference.  But that mentality will make so many people just give up, Alstry, and prepare for the 'new world' with guns or just a desperate mentality in general that will result in irrational decisions (just look at the market, and the assumption that investors are all rational).

I only hope there are more people out there such as myself, and not so many of those that like to detract for personal/private interests from the greater good. 

We should all try to do just that with ideas to stimulate prosperity, growth, SYNERGY, and things to make people focus on TOGETHERNESS rather than reasons to fight and quarrel, then be shocked at the result of what happens when one spends all their time fighting about a solution rather than proposing new ones and efficiently moved ahead with them.

These are my beliefs and have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the healthcare reform debates that are going on.  In fact, I would love to read that particular bill entirely and see what I see - I actually have it written down in one of my notebooks to do, but time is an issue - anyone reply w/a link to it please...

And as for the digitally centric form of our government being applied globally, I think they mean in terms of the way information will be dissiminated between banks/government and not so much about applying our laws and forcing them upon other nations or vice versa...Because historically, America knows when to not try and be imperialistic - and the consequences that come from attempting to do such things (think Phillipeans & Cuba).

MANY SIMPLY CAN'T UNDERSTAND THE CHANGES CURRENTLY OCCURING:

“The Birmingham-Hoover area suffered a greater level of job losses than all but five of the nation’s 100 biggest metros in last three months of 2009, according to a Brookings Institution report. Jobs have disappeared in the Birmingham metro area for eight consecutive quarters dating back to the beginning of the recession in December 2007, worse than the downturn in 1981, which is remembered as brutal. Howard Wial, a fellow with the public policy think tank, said Birmingham’s deep misery is not easy to understand.”

“‘Birmingham is one of the hardest hit metro areas in the South that didn’t experience a housing bubble,’ said Wial, a co-author of the report. ‘Quite frankly, it is a bit puzzling to me why Birmingham is faring so bad.’”

THIS IS THE REALITY OF THE DIGITAL AGE...

“According to data compiled by Moody’s Economy.com, the Hartford region has never recovered from the recession of the early ’90s. ‘We’ve been here a long time, and we compare to what we once were,’ said Ron Van Winkle, an economist who is now West Hartford’s city manager. “The Connecticut economy has been in awful shape for some time.’”

“That the state didn’t have a housing bubble like Las Vegas, Stockton, Calif., and Orlando is nothing to be proud of, he said. Van Winkle said he believes the problem is the shift to low-paying jobs. ‘They flew closer to the sun than we did. We didn’t fly so high because we were already in trouble,’ Van Winkle said.”
