It happens in 3's...

The first country to go down:

Iceland

Who ever had Iceland in the pool, please stand up...

The next country to go will be:

Mexico

The Mexicans seem to be having their own Revolution - the people have had ENOUGH of the Drug Cartels, the Corruption and the Murders. There is a group killing a thug every day....On the front end, I say GOOD FOR THEM - however, if this continues, they will become what they seek to destroy. At some point they will have killed more than have been killed by the thugs.

So - as my Mom says "Things happen in 3's"....What will be the 3rd Country to go? Will they collapse? Will the people rise up and SCREAM ENOUGH? Will they upend the apple cart and begin again? Will they be FREE or will they embrace Fascism and Socialism under the promise of being "kept"?

A safe bet might be Great Britain....they are teetering....

But does it really matter which is next? We need to be cleaning up our own house! Have you called your Reps and your Senators? When Countries start to fail, the pressure to pass ANYTHING will be great. Like it was in October - they felt they needed to do SOMETHING - Hows that working? Was that first $350,000,000,000.00 of the $700,000,000,000.00 a good buy? Did it pull ANYTHING out of the fire? NOPE.

In fact, they have the 2nd part, the $350,000,000,000.00 and they are arguing on how to spend ANOTHER $850,000,000,000.00. We are quickly coming to the point where we have just about signed our own death warrant as a Country. And dont think for a second it was an accident. This crisis has afforded those in power to entrench themselves and chance our Country in ways that we would never agree to in a time of calm.

THE BEST THING WE COULD EVER DO FOR OUR COUNTRY IS TO DO NOTHING...SPEND NO MORE MONEY....ENACT NO MORE ENTITLEMENTS - and on a side note - NO ONE IS ENTITLED TO ANYTHING - you get what you work for, what those are willing to give in Charity - nothing more....You are ENTITLED TO Life, Liberty and CHASING Happiness for yourself - at no one else's cost....

Doing nothing would be the best thing for it would allow us to reset our economy - reset our priorities - reset our Government after people toss the crooks out and into jail. But IT WOULD BE PAINFUL... Dont be misled, WE WILL REBOOT - we will either do it sooner with a quicker recovery or we will do it LATER with TRILLIONS in DEBT with YEARS and YEARS of rebuilding and there is no guarantee we would have our Country when it was over....

Choose - fast and hard or long and harder....and then CALL YOUR SENATORS who are Voting on the CROOK today and call your REPS who will be voting on the "Bailout 2".

I agree with your overall premise, but I think contacting the politicians is a waste of time. They proved , when they ignored all the negative input on the first bailout, that their agenda is not serving the people who voted them into office.

Due to my nature, I am expecting something fairly serious to occur between now & February 19. Why the 19th? That is the date of the purported DTV changeover. There has been rumblings of a delaying the date. I expect to see a lot of news concerning this on the airwaves soon to act as a smokescreen for other actions taking place behind the scenes.
How often have you heard/seen some bit of nothing on the news all blown out of porportion to it's real importance when there is some real event happening that is being ignored? I just feel that all the hype on the television about the DTV swap will be soon presented to cover some real "dirty tricks" type event.
Come on now, how difficult is it to figure out and prepare for? If you have cable, or a dish it will work and if you rely on rabbit ears or external antenna it won't. Get the adapter or do without. It is not as if "TV" is a life resource.

Not sure the uk will be next tho we are in a bad way. Worse places are Greece, Spain and Ireland. Greece has been kicking off for awhile now, I expect it to get a lot worse. Germany can only afford to fund em for so long, then the eu will die.

half - didnt mean to offend - I would be more than willing to give GB a reprieve and throw another country into the fire :)

In fact, lets just say it will be Greece!

Thanks for the insight - will be checking those countries now.

Ramon - they did vote to delay. Nothing like wasting TONS of money to make stations do this - give them TONS of money in the original TARP and now say "Never mind." These people in Washington are idiots...

Ramon, look for it on Feb 10th, when the CPSIA bankrupts tens of thousands of small businesses/self-employed people. *sigh* C.S. Lewis was right, better to live under a tyrant than a do-gooder.

Ramon,
As I said over at my place, everyone HAS to have TV. How else would we be controlled and manipulated? :)

Not sure your views on the EU but tptb seem to love the idea and the bad stuff isn't reported much.
