Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
Any downturn will be a great market buying opportunity. Every time the market steps back, I see posts like this that are a great buy signal. Thanks for the green light. Looks like DOW 15,000 is in the cards this year. I dream of another market crash like 2008, this time I will buy in incremented lots towards the bottom to cost average into the recovery.

 Quoting: G3


The market "can't" step back. It happened in 2008 and what did they do ? They leveraged "everything" exponentially to try and save the system. What? do you think thay have removed this leverage? You think they will do that again and double or triple the leverage yet again?

If there is any pullback in anything "IT IS OVER".

IT's OVER !

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
I think you are correct OP. It will become evident to most on March 1st, 2013 when the sequester begins and austerity begins. Market will really begin to tank as hundreds of thousands are laid off, and huge across the board cuts occur in the Federal Govt. After that...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18713240


Yes, government workers are in for the biggest surprise of anyone. If you are paid wages from people who work to produce something, you are going to be abandoned from all sides when the hammer comes down. Prepare to be offered work that makes Foxconn wages/life a holiday by comparison. Former government employees are going to be pariahs and targets with nowhere else to turn.
 Quoting: kaibosh


This is exactly my thought without regard to exactly how the collapse plays out. Anyone living a parasitic existence will have a tremendously bitter life lesson when the rug is pulled out from beneath them.
 Quoting: Truthache


The less you rely on government, the less you will be affected when it all goes down.

Avoid "diverse" areas as well. Diversity only works as long as there are bread and circuses. Old tribal ways are going to resurface after the collapse.

Disarming vets and taking their weapons aways from them is outrageous and scary. Why now? What's going on that they are too afraid to allow Vets to keep their guns?

Something is very, very wrong. Why now? What's the hurry? Why at all when this goes against the Constitution.

Suggestions:

Set out to be as self-sufficient as possible.
Grow food in flower pots if you have to.
Propane heaters with plenty of back-up fuel
Propane camper stoves
Water
motion sensor lights and lots of batteries
Dehydrated food (soups, veggies, fruit, drinks (milk), etc.)
Canned meat (chicken, fish, beef, pork)
If you didn't know eggs can be frozen for long term storage
Peanut butter, jelly, pancake mix (can be used to make rolled up sandwiches)
oatmeal
rice
sacks of potatoes, apples, oranges, carrots
coffee/tea/cocoa

If there is left over cash sitting in the savings buy silver 1 oz coins. Down the road it's going to skyrocket.
 Quoting: Alexander


I have a question regarding PMs. In a collapse scenario, how feasible is it to actually transact with your silver/gold coins? It seems like more immediately consumable commodities would rule in such a scenario. Right now I see silver/gold as merely a hedge against inflation... but if the whole thing goes kaput, what value is silver? Wouldn't you just hold it in hope that you could trade it for the next liquid currency?

I'm seriously asking here - please set me straight on this! I'm in a quandary as to whether or not to buy PMs.

Need to think about a SAFE ROOM with a lock or another place to flee to in this event. There may be gangs before the govt can get control.

You need to think about having some food supplies and bugging in or bugging out supplies.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34947198


This is only a good suggestion for the short term.....a few days or weeks.

What if this scenario takes MONTHS to sort itself out? Continues? They will eventually want everyone to be under control. Homes with safe rooms where you are sheltering in will become targets (someone may think it's empty and loot then torch it with you in it). Then what?

These choices are not easy, they are not black/white. Many, many possible scenarios to consider.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
You, like many others, dont actually understand what money is or what it represents.
To base a new currency offered by a failure and defrauder will be no easy task, and to create another fiat out of whole cloth based on the same promises,or should I say bankrupt promises will have no weight internationally.
You cannot decree value to other countries in the world, you may be able to force the internal commerce to take it at the point of a gun, but nobody outside the borders will trade with you.
o make your new currency worth something to the rest of the world, you have to make it representative of something the rest of the world wants, that you have.
A bankrupt govt either promises the confiscated labor of its subjects or the confiscated property of its subjects, there is nothing else anyone else wants from a proven defaulter and liar

So, you think that a tiny outfit that intentionally destroyed a nations culture and economy for its own benefit while taking generations to do so is somehow going to allow some of its intended victims to bypass their clutches due to dumb luck?
How stupid can you be?

The game is set, they have the claim that you owe them more than you can ever have, by any means, and you are not gonna buy your way out. If you accept their premises, you cannot win against them.
Life is a game of life or death consequences, not compromises, and you have to force your position one way or another or die by your opponents hand. That's how the game is played, and of course, you've been told it isnt, and by who?
They have forced you to see things their way, and as long as you accept that, you cant win against them

IMO, a big obstacle to overcome before the American middle class will rise up against these pigs is to get the average middle class Joe to understand how TPTB have co-opted our military and used it for their own vile purposes. I hear people all the time say things like, "I don't support the policy, but I support the military." Duh... you've been sold a bill of goods. Every person who considers himself a patriot should be demanding that these wars of empire building cease.
"Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

criminals will take what they want after a crash, they may be gov.org or some other bangers but a crash essentially includes failure of the standard laws and customs usually replaced by the law of the jungle.

Gold and silver or other items that confer instant wealth and status by simple possession will tend to flow to the most violent, evil and grasping sons o bitches, and if you think that you can set up a roadside stand and trade in any sense of safety you dont understand what's coming or what you lose when you allow others to destroy your culture for their own benefit

a 'safe room' can quickly and easily also be used as a large over, just add any readily available fuel, light, and keep adding fuel until the contents are tender.

'Safe' is a relative term.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
OP, OR ANYONE THAT WANTS TO TAKE THIS QUESTION:

the basics of any future crash can only mean this: The U.S. can't pay it's debt service (interest on it's debt). OR the dollar goes into hyperinflation.

Now, THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

why? because the U.S. will continue to print more money. Since the WORLD is still entrenched in the U.S. dollar.. ..this printing of dollars creates inflation WORLDWIDE...

this means the dollar becomes more and more WORTHLESS...each day...BUT VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY SLOWLY.

DID YOU COUNT THE 'VERYS'??!!

SO, the u.s. pays it's debts with a weakening dollar...UNTIL THE DOLLAR FINALLY IS BROKEN INTO HYPER INFLATION...BUT SINCE THE WORLD IS STILL ENTRENCHED IN THE DOLLAR (IT STILL IS)...THE BREAK INTO HYPERINFLATION WILL BE VERYx5 SLOW.

sure, it the road to hyperinflation can be sped up with countries not accepting the dollar or exchange rates are radically adjusted...or ..if all oil goes off the dollar standard...BUT THESE ARE ONLY GOING TO HAPPEN SLOWLY AND INCREMENTALLY.

we've got AT LEAST another year before any serious economic problems BEGIN....UNLESS..there is a false flag/trigger event.

perhaps my faith in my fellowman is delusional but I believe that at our core, we all want the same thing - personal sovereignty ... so even if it is all hype/psy-ops - if you are prepared to be Independent - you win , just hunker down, be a invisible as possible and wait it out because you are not going to stop them from seizing what they want - they don't want to have to deal with you - so stay out of sight.

I agree, I will probably NOT know what I am doing when a crash really comes.....but that doesn't mean I want to just sit here and do NOTHING, while watching my government dismantle my country!

I have handled major hurricane aftermaths, so I feel like I am somewhat - maybe not major, but somewhat - prepared to take care of myself if events unfolded as we are reading here.

Would I "make it," or survive? Only time will tell. But to sit and do nothing makes me dumber than a box of rocks, and gives tptb - not me - more control over my future. And continuing to say "Nothing is going to happen," is naive and foolish.

your point is somewhat logical...but..

wtshtf...and it will whether 1 month or 5 yrs...i'd rather stand with a prepper than with the 'successful people of the world' that say 'it'll never happen, let the future take care of itself.

those so called intelligent, successful people will put on a bbq in the metro cities.

don't think so?

then you are not nearly as intelligent as you think you are

I feel much more confident dealing with people who have already proven that they can take care of themselves. Disasters or not, successful people more often than not will remain successful.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
I remember watching one of the "prepper" shows, where the guy bought booze! Lots and lots of vodka - I think it was - so that he could use it as a barter item.

I'm thinking bartering becomes valuable, rather than coins, in the short term.

And what prevents some paramilitary unit showing up and taking it all for nothing?

Nothing.
One man can do nothing against a larger group of men which are better prepared to take whatever they want

Why do the lot of you assume that there will be any law n order remaining when things crash?

There's barely any now, and I dont think it will get any better when the popo are no longer getting paid, or are getting paid to be someones private militia.

No, not for nothing. We prep cause we want to HOPE we can survive. That we can provide some semblance of hope for our family, for our future.

We prep because we know that if we go outside our doors during a military action we WILL be sent to a camp, everything we own taken away. Does that mean I will be able to fend off an attach by some paramilitary unit showing up at my door? I'm hoping they don't know I HAVE anything to take, and pass me by!

Also, I have done other "smart" things, like moving to a small county, away from a large city, and know my neighbors well enough to HOPE they don't kill me for my little bit of food (that they don't know I have, btw).

And NO ONE is assuming there will be any law and order remaining! We're all just hoping we can remain silent, invisible, and self-sustaining long enough for order to be restored in the crazy world around us.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
OP, OR ANYONE THAT WANTS TO TAKE THIS QUESTION:

the basics of any future crash can only mean this: The U.S. can't pay it's debt service (interest on it's debt). OR the dollar goes into hyperinflation.

Now, THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

why? because the U.S. will continue to print more money. Since the WORLD is still entrenched in the U.S. dollar.. ..this printing of dollars creates inflation WORLDWIDE...

this means the dollar becomes more and more WORTHLESS...each day...BUT VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY SLOWLY.

DID YOU COUNT THE 'VERYS'??!!

SO, the u.s. pays it's debts with a weakening dollar...UNTIL THE DOLLAR FINALLY IS BROKEN INTO HYPER INFLATION...BUT SINCE THE WORLD IS STILL ENTRENCHED IN THE DOLLAR (IT STILL IS)...THE BREAK INTO HYPERINFLATION WILL BE VERYx5 SLOW.

sure, it the road to hyperinflation can be sped up with countries not accepting the dollar or exchange rates are radically adjusted...or ..if all oil goes off the dollar standard...BUT THESE ARE ONLY GOING TO HAPPEN SLOWLY AND INCREMENTALLY.

we've got AT LEAST another year before any serious economic problems BEGIN....UNLESS..there is a false flag/trigger event.

OOPS!...and the question is:

what indication is there that this 'collapse' is imminent? PLEASE present something to refute the above scenario
