There are many people now waking up (finally) and beginning to ask: "How in the Hell did we let things get so bad?". Well, to help answer that very important question, I want to present the following article from Michael Snyder, from the website: Market Daily News, at www.marketdailynews.com, entitled: "This Is What Happens When You Allow Your Country To Become Enslaved To The Bankers". I have that entire very important article right here for everyone to view for themselves,and of course, my own comments and thoughts to follow:
This Is What Happens When You Allow Your Country To Become Enslaved To The Bankers
The high cost of road tax, fuel and repairs is forcing Greeks to ditch their cars in huge numbers. According to the government’s statistics office, the number of cars on Greek roads declined by more than 40 percent in each of the last two years. Meanwhile, more than 200,000 bikes were sold in 2011, up about a quarter from the previous year.
Capital outflows from Spain more than quadrupled in May to €41.3 billion ($50.7 billion) compared with May 2011, according to figures released on Tuesday by the Spanish central bank.
In the first five months of 2012, a total of €163 billion left the country, the figures indicate. During the same period a year earlier, Spain recorded a net inflow of €14.6 billion.
Mina Mavrou, who runs a pharmacy in a middle-class Athens suburb, spends hours each day pleading with drugmakers, wholesalers and colleagues to hunt down medicines for clients. Life-saving drugs such as Sanofi (SAN)’s blood-thinner Clexane and GlaxoSmithKline Plc (GSK)’s asthma inhaler Flixotide often appear as lines of crimson data on pharmacists’ computer screens, meaning the products aren’t in stock or that pharmacists can’t order as many units as they need.
“When we see red, we want to cry,” Mavrou said. “The situation is worsening day by day.”
The 12,000 pharmacies that dot almost every street corner in Greek cities are the damaged capillaries of a complex system for getting treatment to patients. The Panhellenic Association of Pharmacists reports shortages of almost half the country’s 500 most-used medicines.
Unemployed fieldworkers and other members of the union went to two supermarkets, one in Ecija (Sevilla) and one in Arcos de la Frontera (Cadiz) and loaded up trolleys with basic necessities. They said that the people were being expropriated and they planned to “expropriate the expropriators”.
The foodstuffs, including milk, sugar, chickpeas, pasta and rice, have been given to charities to distribute, who say they are unable to cope with all the requests for help they receive. Unemployment in the Sierra de Cadiz is now 40%.
Greece’s power regulator RAE told Reuters on Friday it was calling an emergency meeting next week to avert a collapse of the debt-stricken country’s electricity and natural gas system.
“RAE is taking crisis initiatives throughout next week to avert the collapse of the natural gas and electricity system,” the regulator’s chief Nikos Vasilakos told Reuters.
RAE took the decision after receiving a letter from Greece’s natural gas company DEPA, which threatened to cut supplies to electricity producers if they failed to settle their arrears with the company.
According to SOS Villages, a European charity that attempts to help families in financial hardship before abandonment occurs, in the last year alone 1,200 children in Greece and 750 in Italy have been abandoned. That is almost double the 400 children abandoned in Italy a year ago, and up from 114 children abandoned in Greece in 2003.
On Monday, a 38-year-old geology lecturer hanged himself from a lamp post in Athens and on the same day a 35-year-old priest jumped to his death off his balcony in northern Greece. On Wednesday, a 23-year-old student shot himself in the head.
In a country that has had one of the lowest suicide rates in the world, a surge in the number of suicides in the wake of an economic crisis has shocked and gripped the Mediterranean nation – and its media – before a May 6 election.
It should have been clear that the country—indeed, Western civilization itself—was on the wrong trajectory as governments and central banks, working in tandem, severed ties between their currencies and precious metals, allowing massive credit expansion to run rampant and the national debt to skyrocket—making, e.g., the pseudo-prosperity of the roaring 1990s possible. Nixon had “closed the gold window” on August 15, 1971; our national debt was around $400 billion. Slightly over ten years later, the debt crossed the $1 trillion threshold. Ten years after that, it reached $6 trillion. When George W. Bush left office having been the biggest spending Republican in U.S. history, it had risen to over $11 trillion. Today, under the watch of the catastrophic Obama presidency, by the time this reaches print the national debt might have surmounted $16 trillion with no end in sight.
NTS Notes: What people must understand is that the present rush to new wars by the United States and other Jewish controlled puppet nations, is primarily to avert this impending world wide economic collapse. The master criminals behind this entire usury debt criminal enterprise do not want their control over our money, or their power of enslavement to end,so they are willing to push the world to the brink of World War III in a desperate attempt to avert the impending financial meltdown. Such is the sickness of these monsters!
Again, as before, I must state that throughout history, any nation that subjects itself to a Usury debt monetary system, eventually collapses as a result of its crushing accumulative debt built up over time. Such is the case now in most nations around the planet where total financial failure is at hand.
The solution to the problem is to end the debt to these criminal Jewish bankers, and have all countries start printing their own currency interest and debt free. Many of our governments though are totally in the back pockets of these criminal scumbag bankers, and are driven by their own criminal greed and pursuit of wealth and power. It is a very sad statement that they care not about the interests of their own people who have actually "elected" them to public office.
The big crunch is coming, and I can see it happening this autumn. The result will indeed be hardship for everyone, and yet may present us with the opportunity to end the Jewish banker debt Usury system once and for all time, and at the same time end their evil pursuit of total world enslavement. Lets hope everyone is fully awake at that point!
More to come
