This news story falls right into the no-brainer category:
How could you not, have it figured out? The signs were all around. How could they have been missed? Job losses, stock market losses, pension losses & home losses. Does that really sound like the news of boom times? Were people really so oblivious, that they needed the main stream media to inform them of the obvious and take a full year to inform the reader.
Maybe next year the media can state the obvious to us again, that the recession has brought on a depression.
Then some years after the fact, the media can report how out of the Depression, DISSENT arose (unemployed hungry people get angry) which resulted in state enforced Repression!
I'll give you a heads up now, ok?
We've already seen the signs of coming state repression, with the first battle hardened troops assigned to domestic soil in the US. Prior to that, the agreement between US and Canada to use each other's troops on one anothers soil and who could forget... Blackhawk Helicopters to fly the Canada/US border ! Or the internet monitoring US: Military to Patrol Internet !
But in case those weren't enough cause for concern, read the latest:
The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011
Like the reports of loss of jobs, savings & homes, these various news stories point to a repressive state apparatus in the works.
Don't wait for the mainstream media to put it all together and report it to you, by time they do it will be to little way,way, way to late!
