What's next in the economic collapse? The commercial real estate bubble
Well guys... I know my name says it all, but there really is a lot of Economic doom headed our way. It's not rocket science.
Do people here on Pro Sports Daily really think the economy is going to recover? Do you think we aren't headed into a depression?
Well lets talk about all the Retailers that have closed down shops. What happens to all that real estate? Who is going to move in? Who is going to lease that property? Take Circut City for example... who's going to move in to all those closed down shops? Nobody.
And not only that... now the are talking about using $3 Trillion dollars in government and private funds to fight against frozen credit markets and rising joblessness.
Anyway... if you want a decent idea of how this going to play out...
I actually have a legit question for DD. What are you doing to prepare for this? Do you have a nest egg? Are you planning on capitalizing on this? Are you really burying guns in preparation? Or are you resigned to just die?
Also what did you think in 97-99 about Y2K?
I'm not mocking you in this post, I just want more info.
Of course I live in the suburban community... where everybody thinks we aren't on the brink of WWIII... that we aren't on the brink of the next Great Depression.
You forget how divided this nation is. Black & White, Rich & Poor, Republican & Democrat, Conspiracy Theorist & Patriot, Military & Civilian.
Not to mention... what if the next big event happens in the USA? War, terrorism, earthquakes, hurricanes, global warming, food crisis?
And most importantly... you forget how dumb Americans are. Not everyone is as smart as you.
While we are divided, we as a country have always rallied behind great catastrophes. Look at the nation mourning together and pitching in after 911. There's a reason that the US as a whole is always the major donor when something like a Tsunami hits. When the world weeps we are there, and it's not because we have more money either.
So now I'm either baited or just interested. How long have you been collecting the guns? I assume you aren't running a waco style compound, so i'm not trying to get you in trouble. But how long have you prepared for this. Did you by into the Y2k problems. I'll admit at times, I wondered if such calamity might just happen. I mean the biggest thing I did was have like 5 gallons of water, but the thought crossed my mind. Wait I take that back, I made sure the generators we owned worked.
And if you have been preparing for this say before 911, what lead you down your path. If you don't feel comfortable putting it out in front of everyone, but feel comfortable telling me, you can also PM me.
I'll be honest you intrigue me.
Edit--- One more thing. If you believe in the establisment how does new comers such as Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, and Obama play into this. It seems to be the opposite of the old boys club establishment. Or are they a marketing ploy to make people believe that their is no establishment.
Or are you saying the president means little, that it's the powers that be that aren't elected, that helped set up the Federal Reserve, and continue to run the world via money.
