Mark???¦??s Column ~ The Night Chicago Died. . .
Welcome everyone ~
It is my hope that you all had a great weekend. I was pondering some news that I placed here @ my blogging thread: http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/getboards.aspx?SearchStr=real%20stocks ~ Which can be used at your dispense. We are most certainly living through interesting times.
It looks like happy valley to me. How about you? This takes me back to memories of the sixties. It is true, history is cyclical. Have yourself a nice listen to this song while you grab your favorite morning beverage. We???¦??ll get right on to the review of the economy and personal finance after you all get a chance to listen to what has been created in our world:

Here???¦??s what is going on in America ~
On the market side of things, The DJIA and S&P 500 along with the NASD are being held up by the ???¦?Quantitative Easing???¦? (QE) as instigated by both Ben Burnanke and Timothy Geithner. We simply cannot sustain the economy in the direction we are headed. Now understand that the ???¦?economy???¦? and the ???¦?financial markets???¦? are not the same. Economical circumstances that presently prevail are not only a problem in the United States, they are a problem in Europe, as well. If the countries can print more money to get out of debt, then why can???¦??t the people begin printing their own money within their own communities? Yes, that???¦??s right. . .we need banking systems that are ???¦?Too large to fail???¦? to fail, and let local communities set up their own systems of banking. Then we???¦??ll get more jobs in local communities, and we won???¦??t have to deal with the crap zone in The Beltway.
Of course you all know I am referring to QE in the previous paragraph. ???¦?QE???¦? basically means, printing money. Toilet paper out of thin air that has green ink on it! I mean, the government has virtually abandoned the Constitution of the United States. So why should the people abide by it? We could have different currencies in each state. Oh yes, that???¦??s right. Then we could give the Ivy League ???¦?know it alls???¦? a good thing to ponder. Trust me, this situation is forthcoming. The people are getting a bit upset, to say the least. The ???¦?Occupy Wall Street???¦? and ???¦?Tea Party???¦? movements are for real! This country is moving towards a four party system. It is also moving towards revolution with recent statements from Al Sharpton and Barack Obama leading the cause. All of their statements can be found here: http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/board.aspx?board_id=2434
Meanwhile, take a look at what is going on with the financial front in America. . .
So, where is the hero? http://www.usdebtclock.org/
If people think this is a joke, they are sadly mistaken. My objective is to get people to open their eyes and see exactly what is going on. We are being sucked into a whirlpool like the world has never seen before. It is going to collapse our economical and financial systems. Now we have to trust the very people that created this disaster, to fix the mess they made! The way you have a baker fix a problem if they screwed up a cake is to have them go back and make another cake. The next time, hopefully they will get the ingredients right. That is exactly what we need to do with our financial systems. We also need to do this with our economy. Many of us have been begging our representatives to pay attention to what is going on. Some are. I would place Orrin Hatch and Michele Bachmann on top of the list. They are sincere about what they want to do. I???¦??ll leave it at that on the political front.
Let???¦??s take another time-out here. I know everyone can???¦??t be a hero, but I sure wish somebody would step up to the plate. If nobody steps up, where do we go from here?

We have some situations that are occurring that the world leaders have never faced. Several of the European Nations are already incurring massive inflation. We???¦??re talking that they are paying over ten dollars a gallon got fuel in the United Kingdom. This event will come to America. I have termed it ???¦?Super Inflation???¦?. Look at the price of gas. Now tell me that the price of food products can go down while the price of gas (to distribute foods via trucks, etc.) goes up. How can this happen? Just explain that to me, please. I???¦??ve been saying this for over two years . . . start bartering! Meanwhile, the ???¦?Mass Media???¦? has been proclaiming the economy is improving. Bartering is non-taxable and you make friends along the way.
Let???¦??s take a break for another song. Clean your cup from the first break, or fill it up again . . .

Let???¦??s end on a very positive note ~ ???
Okay, okay, here is something for all of you to dedicate to your significant others.
In a world that seems a little ???¦?stressed???¦? at the seams, this should go over well. Hang in there. We???¦??re all going to make it through. Somehow, we shall all make it through. As Wayne Gretzky once said, ???¦?I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.???¦?
Peace be with you all, always . . . and in all ways,
