The Tide Is Going Out On
the Collapsing, Corrupt US Government
When the tide goes out, it reveals a lot of ugliness that was
hidden under water. In times of prosperity (or apparent
prosperity), weakness, duplicity, and corruption is hidden from
view or is deliberately overlooked. Few want to point out the
fallacies - after all, everyone is doing so well and having such a
good time. Why argue with success, even if it comes with a bit of
corruption? Surely the success is worth a bit of corruption.
The apparent prosperity is gone and increasingly viewed as a fraud
that would do Charles Ponzi proud. It was ( and still is) centered
in our financial system and encouraged by the political class.
Nests were feathered while the public was looted.
Each ebbing of the tide brings more corruption to the surface.
Covering up the fraud becomes more difficult as government's
ability to throw money at the problems decreases. Our banking
system still pretends to be solvent, although that too will be
shown to be hollow at a later stage in the crisis.
The most recent debate is the scandal involving our government
sponsored Fannie and Freddie. Add another $6 Trillion of
liabilities to the tab of our government, but that is government
obfuscation. Taxpayer, you have been raped again.
