MaxedOutMama: The Coming Debt Bust

The Coming Debt Bust

These trends are so dangerous that they should be the biggest topic on the table in every political discussion, yet no party is willing to discuss them. You can’t combine a bloated, secure government sector with a hyper-competitive free-market private economy. Sooner or later the peasants revolt, which is, I suppose, why we are importing so many Spanish-speaking ones who have no representation in government and no legal right to be peasants in this country. They can’t revolt.

Christian Financial prognosticators have been predicting this for years. They have warned that we need to get out of debt and stop the credit/ debt spiral.

There are many voices out there, but as MoM says, no one is willing to really face it. And so it gets oppressively depressing and alarming to the extreme to look at the facts. but I want you thinkers to read MoM’s commentary and especially read the Malanga article she linked in the City Journal.

When you take the entire picture of this along with the momentum of events such as the Kelo decision the picture is more than bleak.

If you will hear it, the Bible says this:

Lamentations 5

1 Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold our reproach.

2 Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.

3 We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.

4 We have drunken our water for money; our wood is sold unto us.

5 Our necks are under persecution: we labour, and have no rest.

6 We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.

7 Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.

8 Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.

9 We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.

10 Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.

11 They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.

12 Princes are hanged up by their hand: the faces of elders were not honoured.

13 They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under the wood.

14 The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their musick.

15 The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.

16 The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!

17 For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.

There is a correlation between being given over to sins and reaping long lasting consequences in the culture, including the oppression of government. Does this mean that cultures with greater oppression are given to a populace of greater sin? Well, if it were a matter of immediate consequence you might be able to say that… but the thing both with the concept of mercy and reaping harvest of what’s sown is that there is a time lapse. While we can see accumulation that creates an outcome, there is always time to circumvent what sometimes appears inevitable. Hope is resident in all of us because of the fact that little is inevitable. But there is such a thing as predictable outcomes…. and when a society is filled with that which degrades and destroys… sooner or later paying the piper comes due and not always in ways that one would expect.

Because of the time factor… and the delusionary measures to which mankind is so prone.

What is to be done? Using what time is left to reform and correct.

  1. I have spent plenty of time on your gardening website and plenty of effort expressing to others how nice it is, but after reading your opinions with words such as ” Sooner or later the peasants revolt, which is, I suppose, why we are importing so many Spanish-speaking ones … ” I am appalled and disgusted with your narrow world view. I will never visit your sites again – there are plenty of other resources not marred by disgusting self serving religous zealots.

  2. some people just want pablum…to their dying day and I can’t help that.

    Although those weren’t my own words I quoted them here because I agree with the content. And yes, I am a religious zealot. No apologies there.

    It had to do with the exploitation of unrepresented illegals, which happen to be Spanish speaking more often than not. We are supporting a privileged government sector and impoverishing the blue collar middle income workers. If that sort of report of the truth bothers you…. what will the bother you at the end…when it can no longer be cloaked?

    Your garden won’t mean too much to you at that point. And maybe your garden won’t be yours to call your own at that point, either.

    I’m no tea party and fashion show Christian. sorry.
