Forecast: Destiny of The USA  more Musings, and a decade of my Taglines

It serves as an outline and summary of the background materials for understanding some of my writing. The table shows at-a-glance my shift in optimism, and providing progressively more details.  Followed by a compilation of my relevant taglines from the last few years.

  • (80%) Another imminent (weeks ~ months) collapse: Bank of America, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, GMAC. They could also nominate a surrogate outside of this group.

  • State shutdowns/failures: led by California, Nevada, Michigan, Alabama and Florida; spreading to numerous other states.
  • prisoners released en masse
  • Court systems overwhelmed, come to a grinding halt
  • Counter-party enforcement impossible due to infinite circular nature, and tedious divvying of securitization process

hmmm, what to say... yeah, a remote but distinct possibility  
Recovery from
"blow back",
other seeds
  Not ready to disclose/assert yet. And that aspect is quite irrelevant in the end. Let's just say, metaphoricallythis one-time generator's usefulness to someone has expired. The fate of being encased by pouring cement to contain the radiation is unavoidable.      

Hint: Anyone suggesting I'm thinking "the end of the world" should put those words back into his/her own mouth, and be laughed to death, for failing to comprehend how the world works.
