Where Global Warming is a Global Fraud.

Where GDP is growing but everything in the economy is contracting.

Where reported unemployment is only half the real rate.

Where we destroy perfectly good vehicles so people can lever up to buy SUVs.

Where the Nobel Peace Prize winning President is expanding the military.

Where bankers get bailied out but citizens and small business get abandoned.

Where we are told it is a jobless recovery even the the economy is based on jobs.

Where we are told housing is at a bottom though foreclosures have increased for 9 consecutive qtrs.

Where we are told spending more money on health care is shrinking the deficit.

Where a deficit of $2 tillion dollars is something to grow out of as we cut off credit to the private sector.

Where the only area of growth in the economy is entitlement payments and military as job losses increase.

One begins to think that a plan is in place....but my guess is it is not the one most are thinking about.

Undeniable, Alstry.  But this kind of deception is the result humanity's abandonment of Godly morals - see recent articles about increased atheism.

So, now you and the rest of us are living in this world of deception.  It's contra logic.  It's contra intelligence.  It's propaganda supported by mainstream media.  It's our electorate completely ignoring the will of the people.

The world has completely changed.  It's virtual now...a production rather than reality.  It's inspired by Hollywood...life immitating art.  And the population at large is lulled by it, watching it happen as though it were a movie or something.  We have no voice in government any more, but we cannot become mired down in it all.  We need to rise above, navigate the trechery and start our own communities back on the road to moral recovery.  That's the only solution.  From there, when the foundational unit of society heals (the family), then we may have a chance at something closer to the human idea. 

But it starts at home...not on the Motley Fool CAPS blogs.

Fool on!

Art and media is driving life...it is pretty amazing.  Exactly as Brezinsky predicted 30 years ago.

Health Care is about 20% of GDP and we are supposed to believe that there is growth ahead in light of the following?

A new statewide survey by the Ohio Hospital Association found......

that of the 75 responding hospitals:

• about half plan to leave future vacancies unfilled;

• 39 percent plan to reduce or eliminate services;

• 49 percent plan to cancel or delay expansion or renovation projects;

• 64 percent will take more cost-cutting steps.

The survey also found that:

• 48 percent of the responding hospitals have already enacted layoffs;

• 67 percent have not filled vacancies;

• 37 percent have reduced or eliminated services;

• 12 percent have canceled or delayed expansion or renovation projects;

• 81 percent have taken other cost-cutting measures such as reducing community benefit spending, reducing employee benefits or freezing wages.

Have you read "Between Two Ages?" Few have. I am pleasently surprised if so.

There is lots of surprising stuff about Alstry.

But in the end, Alstry is as much a concept as a blogger.

You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.
