I have been around the 'net, looking for some tea leaves to read. I dropped by my old haunt, "Coast To Coast AM," to see if Evelyn Paglini has done a recent show. Except for an Art Bell broadcast from 2001, I saw nothing. Then I dropped by Unknown Country. There was an interesting article there: John Hogue says that the next 18 months will be "among history's MOST IMPORTANT" (as if this has never been the case). It's a special subscriber interview; I could download it and hear what he says. (Perhaps I will, should the government default.) But no one seems to be concerned about the looming default that's staring us in the face, as I type.
Will anyone stop the suicide bombers of the American Republic? Do not the Koch Brothers, who financed the tea party movement from whole cloth, not understand that a federal default will impact their bottom line? Is there no buyer's remorse? We've always been told that "money" controls the American government. Where are the money men, then? Why aren't they pulling their strings? Financiers, high rollers, leveraged buyers, and your ilk: Listen up. You get one chance at this. Call in your suicide bombers, or there will be no party left to party.
