WalMart and Obits as Harbingers

This new article from the National Inflation Association  http://inflation.us/artificialeconomy.html got me to thinking. It starts out talking about Japan and China and their currencies, and how the Chinese workers are getting to the point of refusing to work 7 long days a week for miniscule slave wages… and they’re striking! 

Then the article goes on to talk about one of China’s biggest retailers here in the U.S., WalMart, which has ceased doing their “rollbacks” on grocery items and has actually been jacking up prices by 51-66%.  Another friend reported that her HEB grocery store out near Austin has been jacking up prices like all get-out.  The upshot of that is, putting it simply, that price inflation is finally hitting. It will be slow at first, but as the old inventory is sold off, it is being replaced by the new inventory at much higher inflated prices.

NOW is the time to be shopping the sales, snatching up the older inventory while you can at the old prices or at sale prices. I picked up some organic canned goods for $0.50 to $1.00 a can and Tom’s of Maine fluoride-free toothpaste for $2.50 a tube at Big Lots. I went to pick up some potting soil at the local garden center, and I also bought a bunch of seeds for 1/2 price.   By all means, hit Costco to stock up on good bulk foods… powdered milk, beans, rice, spices, quinoa, cereals, nuts, canned goods… you name it.  The deals are still out there, so please make use of them.  This may be the last chance to load up  before inflation makes your paycheck worthless. 

In the midst of discussing these things with friends, one friend, as part of her job, has to peruse the obituaries. She reports that the obituary pages have increased, from one page or less to two or three pages on the weekdays and more on the weekends. She cites that the last time she saw this pattern was just before and after 9-11-2001.  She also states that the real number of deaths are perhaps 2 or 3 times that of the obits since the obits cost money for the family to publish. What that boils down to is a lot of people leaving the Earth because they “didn’t sign up for the coming rough times”.  Not everyone that is on the earth is necessarily on the “earth mission”.  This may also explain why I haven’t been able to get through to some friends and family that  they need to be getting their assets under their personal control and stocking up on food/water/silver/gold/survival equipment.  Perhaps they plan on leaving with everyone else that might be dying when the hard times hit?  We know that some 17 million people died (damn near 1/7 of the population) of starvation during the Great Depression, and that was with the currency backed by gold AND 90% of everyone in the U.S. living on farms.  Now, those numbers are inverted with only 10% living on farms and maybe half of them self-sufficient. I’m still worried for these folks, but at some point, I have to let go and allow them to make their own decisions as adults.

Gang… all the signals are out there if you just unplug from the boob-tube and see them. We’ve been given fair notice. We know that the currency will do a melt-down at some point, given that the government has been racking up a couple of trillion dollars of debt each year for several years, and Obummer is planning on more “stimulus spending”. Given that big business owns our government outright and the cabal of private bankers called the Federal Reserve are now buying the T-bills that China refuses to buy any more… that way the Fed is making interest on the worthless paper money they’re printing AND on the T-bills they’re buying with the same worthless paper. We know that the richest people are going to get even richer and Obama’s gonna fiddle while the American empire burns. We know that the cleptocratic corporatocracy that is our government, aided by the mainstream media, is doing their best to convince the American public that they don’t have anything to worry about… and in so doing are setting a lot of people up for starvation.

Historically speaking, when they’ve exhausted their options, they typically take us to war.  The mainstream media has been beating the war drums for a while now. Several predictors are saying that there will probably be another leg of war breaking out, this time with Iran (backed and equipped by the Russians), and a very probable staged terror strike to remove the last of our civil liberties.  When our government gets done, America is going to be rolled back to the police state of the Soviets, with most people working for the goverment to spy on the rest, and a black market the only means to acquire the necessities.  It may take some months before a black market comes together in the aftermath of a hyperinflation melt-down.  Are you equipped to tough it out for that long?

If you go to church, talk to the pastor and make sure he talks to the congregation at length about preparing in advance by storing “every needful thing” to protect themselves.  The time for this prep work is running short.  Price inflation is hitting now. We may not see the BIG inflation hit until first quarter of next year, but things will start getting really interesting this last quarter of 2010. 

Me? Gosh, I’m trying.  I’m not just pulling things together for me and my husband, but also to make sure my little old momma is covered.
