    Did anybody watch Glenn Beck's TV program today (Friday, Feb. 20)? He's had several experts in various fields on, and they've been discussing several different "worst case" scenarios.

    If you caught this, what did you think?

    I just watched it....
    and I've honestly had that bad case scenario feeling ever since the election. That is the primary reason I joined this forum and I'm so glad I did.

    Is it a possible reality? Yes. I believe it's true.

    Can we stop it? I sure as hell hope so.

    Did you read the sub title lines while the show was airing? Over 6000 people killed in Mexico last year. Tourists are put on alert. The borders are bracing.

    It's starting.

    Wall street is crumbling. Thank God they stopped the nationalization talks today and stopped some of the tumbles this afternoon.

    They're talking about a scenario that could happen within 5 years.
    I'm so pissed off cuz I'm getting ready to retire by then and now I'm thinking that my future dreams of traveling will end up in the garbage....
    and now I'm thinking about investing in survival gear!

    Geesh... I'm alone and rolling into Mad Max mode....ugh good grief!

    But Beck was right.... we should go with our guts and be prepared for the worst...
    If it doesn't happen....Hallelujah!

    If it does....then we'll be ready!

    What did you think about it?

    Well it was sobering, and consideriing my alcohol intake that's sayin' something.:p
    No, seriously I'm ok right now, I think.
    I can't help feeling a little relieved that I'm not the only one who is concerned about some bad things coming around the bend.
    Bottom line. We'll deal with it.
    No matter what we gotta do, we'll do it.
    I'm not saying things might not be really "different" I'm just saying that throughout history their have been challenging times, and this just might be our turn.
    God protect us all.

    Ya watched it.

    All politicians should be scared, especially those of the anti-constitution party(D).

    Yep the wife and I watched it, as we do every night. His war room scenarios were nearly on target, although I tend to think each of the suggested scenarios will be worse in reality.

    I don't think he cared much for Celente's honest, if negative, assessment for what's coming. What was funny was, when he was talking to the ex-CIA guy and the ex-Army guy, they started to scare him, literally, about what they think is coming. Basically, that the people not only would, but even should, fight the government. I thought Glenn would have a break down right there.

    He's coming around, but, it's starting to really dawn on him now.

    We're in the thick of it folks, and we're not getting out. :(

    I hope that those two guys will back on Monday. To bad he didn't have the time to do the show properly, as it could have been a two or three hours long.

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to Monday too. Hope they have a nice long segment delving deeper into where they didn't go tonight.

    He's gonna have to pop a lot more M&Ms during that episode. :D:eek::rolleyes:

    I didn't see it but I've heard enough of Celente and other resources to get the picture... :( Like I've said, the decisions being made now are not being made to pull us OUT of a recession. Even a basic micro/macro-economics overview course would tell folks that... Politicians want to keep us dumb and complacent. God forbid we start thinking and taking an interest all at once...

    EDIT: I'll add that I believe we're seeing a mix of Alinsky's model on propagating radicalism and the Military's philosophy that a man must be torn down to be built back up into a desired form. That's scary stuff!

    I was always taught to plan for the worst and hope for the best. I watched it all (The show) and was especially interested in Glenns reaction to the two CIA guys answers. I think it threw him a little that there are actually people out here that are prepared to push back if something bad happens and are ready,willing and able.

    I'll be watching Monday for the rest of the story................

    BTW...... greetings to everyone here :)
