So I read your logical reply to Corey's post, and it really really comforts me. Thank you, I can sleep soundly tonight. :)
Well that’s good. You shouldn’t believe all the stuff you read on the internet, especially when it’s on tumblr of all places. These kind of things just scare people for no reason and almost no truth behind it.
In the last few days, it’s become more and more obvious that the country is headed straight for a war with North Korea. There really isn’t much we can do to stop it now, aside from nuking the whole place and calling it a day, which we cannot and should not do. When the United States military began conducting joint military operations with South Korea, it stood as a confirmation that should North Korea act against South Korea (which at this point is inevitable), we’re going to back the South Koreans.
That’s great and noble and all, but the fact is that we cannot afford it. We already have such a high debt to China that we’ll never be able to pay it off. Even if we try, we cannot possibly grasp how long it will take. With the way our country is headed, spending money like crazy, we will never pay it off, meaning we owe China and we can’t deliver.
Just a few weeks ago, the government announced that it had purchased an additional 600 billion dollars worth of bonds from the Chinese government. This alone serves to weaken the value of the dollar 10% over night, and up to 25-30% within months. This means that if you have $100 in the bank, it’ll be worth $70-75 in a matter of months.
When China says no the next time we ask for money, we’re pretty much fucked. If our number one loan source refuses to pay for our wars or problems any longer, where will we turn? Other countries will see that China is refusing and they won’t loan money to us either. Our dollar will be useless, meaning you can’t use it to buy food or clothes or pay for the things you take for granted every single day. We’ll be in a worse position than we were in during the Great Depression. And on top of it all, we’ll still have two wars on our plate.
So, at this point, our money is worthless and we can’t pay to fight the nuclear and chemical opposition coming from North Korea. It would make sense that we turn to our allies, right?
In case you haven’t heard, Wikileaks released an absolutely MASSIVE collection of documents today regarding the relationships that the United States has with its allies. Earlier this week, the government warned Canada that it would damage relationships with our allies and lead to “countless deaths.” (If we need to warn Canada that they’re going to be angry with us, what are other countries going to think?)
Basically, we’ll have no one to back us up, no money, and a country with nuclear weapons (I don’t care what the media says, North Korea has nuclear capabilities) fighting against us.
So we turn to the UN, right? Wrong. The Wikileaks documents also reveal that Hillary Clinton ordered U.S. diplomats to spy on UN leaders, meaning they’re going to be less than happy about helping us. (Good job, Hillary.)
In essence, America is fucked. We’re going to face rougher times in the next few years than any of us could have even imagined. Our safety is at stake. Our lives are at stake. It’s not only possible, but probable that this could be the end of the United States of America as we know it.
I don’t think people understand the magnitude of this situation. It means that we might be looking at the end of an empire. We could be a third-world country in a matter of months.
So what do we do? Prepare for it. Know how to survive if everything goes wrong. Think about what you’d need to do if an emergency arises. Most of all, ORDER A PASSPORT THIS WEEK IF YOU DON’T ALREADY HAVE ONE. If you need to make a run for it, you’re going to need a passport to get into a different country.
I can’t express the amount of urgency of the situation. America is at a time right now that our country could very easily cease to exist. Please try to understand that and act upon it. I care about you all enough to not want to see anything bad happen to you, but at this point, it’s virtually inevitable.
Most of all, prepare yourselves. America is in a bad state of affairs right now it’s not going to get any better any time soon.
Please please please reblog this and let others know what to expect. It’s only through communication and helping others that we can save humanity.
NO SOURCES, NO CREDIBILITY.
^^^^^^^THANK YOU. I swear to god, some people act like they know exactly how government and economics work when they don’t even have the slightest clue. And “bad state of affairs” we’re in right now, we’re still the greatest and most prosperous country on earth. Thinking it’s patriotic to talk about how the “value” of the dollar is dropping and how we should get a passport in case we need to “make a run for it.” If you believe this, then you might as well leave now. I don’t think you understand the magnitude of your idiocy. We are not worse off than we were in The Great Depression, just because we owe money doesn’t mean we aren’t making any. North Korea and South Korea have been at war for decades, if we freak out at every little announcement on TV or the internet, then we’d still be at war since WWII. You think that North Korea is some nuclear powerhouse that would destroy the US with one push of the button? If you believe stuff like that, then I don’t know why you wouldn’t have the logic to know that we aren’t some third world country with no way to defend and retaliate. America is not fucked, it’s not the end of the fucking world, and you’re just repeating bullshit that you read somewhere. Stop trying to fill people’s mind with complete and utter bullshit.
I know people say, “Cudi can’t rap, Cudi sucks,” but personally, I don’t even see Cudi as a rapper. I see him as someone who makes music that I can relate to the most.
When the weeks change the rumors change too I’m addicted to highs, would you like to know why When the months change so do my love point of views I don’t want what I need, what I need hates me What I need hates me …
I know all along all along I know I’m meant to be alone It’s crazy but all along all alongOut there on my own, yeah
Did you know your picture with your cudi album is posted on cudi's website within a collage of people and the album? I feel like a total creeper saying this, but I was looking for mine and saw your picture instead, haha.
Hahaha yeah I saw that :) My pictures pretty small and to the side though, I guess I’m too ugly lmao
I've grown to love doing things on my own. I find my personal solitude is a lot more enjoyable. Don't get me wrong I enjoy the existence of having company, but it's nice to escape from dealing with people and their bullshit sometimes.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that…. As long as you don’t think it’s the new social networking thing then okay. Tumblr is our public diary, no hate, no drama. If you bring hate and drama then go back to myspace. This is our home away from home, get out. Go away, we don’t want you here because you think tumblr’s the new thing now a days. If you’re here for the same reason as us then stay but if you’re gonna post up meaningless nonsense with no soul then so long, see ya sucker, bon voyage, arrivederci, later loser, good bye, good riddance,peace out, let the doorknob hit you where the good lord split you, don’t come back around here no more, astalavista, kick rocks and get the hell out.
With no intention to start any photog brawls, here’s a funny article by photographer/comedian Gordon Lewis about what your camera may or may not say about you (originally spotted this on Gizmodo):
Just as the clothes you choose to wear, the food you like to eat, and the people you associate with say something about you, so does the camera system you buy into. The following observations are based on close association with the various groups of camera owners and from having belonged to each group at one time or another. Those who belong to the “lacking any sense of humor” or “offended at the drop of a hat” groups are strongly advised to read no further.
Canon owners You appreciate the benefits of owning a camera system that leads in cutting-edge digital imaging technology and that offers a wealth of body, lens, and accessory options for every level of photographer, from lowly consumer to top professional. You will switch to Nikon.
Nikon owners You appreciate the benefits of owning a camera system that leads in cutting-edge digital imaging technology and that offers a wealth of body, lens, and accessory options for every level of photographer, from lowly consumer to top professional. You will switch to Canon.
Sony owners You believe that Sony’s innovations in consumer electronics and video technology, its leadership in digital imaging chip production, its in-body image stabilization, and its use of Zeiss optics results in a unique design synergy and products of exceptional value—because that’s what it says in the product literature. You also believe in astrology, UFOs and the Easter Bunny.
Pentax owners You’re the sort of person who would buy a $1500 DSLR body so your stash of thread-mount, K-mount and M-mount lenses from decades ago (collectively worth $75.00 at a flea market or yard sale) won’t go to waste; either that, or you’ve never heard of a Spotmatic, Pentax LX or Takumar, you just think you look cool sporting a day-glo red camera that takes real pictures. You think people are laughing with you, not at you.
Olympus owners You’re the sort of person who buys North Korean beer, Peruvian underwear, and French cars, not because you actually like them but because no one else does. When people question your choice of camera system you respond that Olympus images have a certain “soul” and that photographs are what matter, not the camera. You have no friends.
Leica owners You know that no other camera other than a Hasselblad gains as much instant respect among the cognoscenti as a Leica. Although this relieves the pressure of demonstrating actual photographic prowess, it increases the need to be familiar with the subtle differences in visual signature between an Elmar, Elmarit, Summitar, Summicron, and Summilux. You are either stinking rich, living in your mother’s basement, or one lens purchase away from a divorce.
Panasonic, Fuji, Samsung, Minolta, Yashica owners and et cetera should be relieved rather than offended that they were not included.
