Pluto and the Bankruptcy of America



Update 8.11.10 8:10 pm edt: here's an article relating to my post below:

Reagan insider: 'GOP destroyed US economy'

By Paul B. Farrell

We've arrived at a historic turning point as a nation that no longer needs outside enemies to destroy us, we are committing suicide. Democracy. Capitalism. The American dream. All dying. Why? Because of the economic decisions of the GOP the past 40 years, says this leading Reagan Republican.

(And he oughta know.)

My original post begins here:

You know when I read or hear things nowadays about the bankruptcy of the United States, I always feel the Moon on 9/11/01 at '28Gemini' = "Through Bankruptcy, Society Gives to an Overburdened Individual the Opportunity to Begin Again."

Keynote: A release from unbearable pressures, freeing one for new tasks.

The bankruptcy proceedings mentioned here should not be construed as referring to a fraudulent type of bankruptcy. At least in the United States bankruptcy does not imply a moral condemnation, tahter, it means that individual failure cannot be separated from the health of the community. The special nature of the whole is implied in the failure of the part to perform adequately under particularly harsh economic conditions. A society which enthrones the principle of ruthless competition must also develop mechanisms to exteriorize the principle of compassion.

The latter was at first emphasized by Northern Buddhism, and soon after by Christianity. The concept of atonement is directly related to that of release from unbearable economic pressures in bankruptcy.

Here we have...(a) "leaving behind," a LIBERATION FROM THE PAST.

(An Astrological Mandala, Dane Rudhyar; his italics and CAPS.)


As the media and politicians have repeated over and over since The Towers were destroyed: the world is now changed and there's no going back. And as I've stated previously in many posts, bankruptcy of the we-the-people and of the nation was perhaps the primary motive for the attacks of 9/11 (World Trade Center) - and 9/11's ripples, and the costs of the wars it supposedly justifies, have led to precisely that desired outcome.

It's meant much less money for me and you, dear reader, but lots more money for the power elite to funnel into that mysterious money hole!

Yet there's one more thing about the US being bankrupt now: the culpability of Washington politicians who should have seen it coming and governed to head it off. My deepest suspicion is that they didn't want to head it off.

Alternately, perhaps it was their own greed and dishonesty that made a higher force (represented in charts by Pluto or combinations with Pluto such as Jupiter/Pluto, etc) impossible to outwit. Financial collapse would have been forced upon the US government as a necessary trial to go through on the path to a (supposedly inevitable) New World Order.

At the very least, US politicians sold us out because they couldn't or wouldn't take a stand on the people's behalf and protect us from Pluto, The Dragon. For when you search for 'where all the money went', first check Pluto's lair, is my best advice.

So are we still America, Land of the Free? Bosh! Check out the numbers of the current prison population in the US and you'll soon find that to be quite a massive fallacy, another empty 'dream' politicans and propagandists sold us as long as it was useful to them.

As I often say, America is my only nag in the race. Now I must add: in spite of how they've hobbled her!

So that's what I think in a nutshell. What do you think?

For your entainment: can Mr. Alan Greenspan be ever so slightly amewsing?

David Stockman was indicted for fraud in March 2007. He blamed his Reaganomics fiscal fiasco on the Republican Congress who wouldn't give him the spending cuts he said were needed for "trickle-down" scheme to work. His Federal fraud charges were dropped in January 2009. I imagine it's because of the $1.3 billion the government was wanting returned to themselves and the investors, none was available after the company he allegedly defrauded filed for bankruptcy 5 days after he quit.

Can't say that I would trust David Stockman's assessment blaming anybody for the current US fiscal situation except himself, for his part.

Personally, I'm of the opinion that when Nixon took the US off the gold standard and allowed money to be printed with no gold to back it up, that started the "capital rush". I don't believe any president, even Nixon, has had bad intentions as far as the US finances go but I do fault Nixon for being short-sighted. How on earth did he believe the US Congress and the Fed would be responsible when given license to print money for free???

Really, consumerism is more of a problem than capitalism. Buy, buy, buy, get the latest -phone/-pad/car/shoes/organic veggies/and never save money. Money in the bank is money you might lose when the bank fails.

Supply and demand works. Trying to support the economy with corporate revenue increases will never work.

But Congress will have to change laws. Corporate greed is Congressionally mandated. Yep, and shareholders sue corporations for failing to maximize profits and they win.

Parin, thanks for you rinput! i had tried to think what i knew Stockman for specifically and you nailed it. i thought it was odd that he was 'outing' anything at all about RR since so many worship R as if he's a 'saint' so it seemed interesting to post it. i can't vouch for every article or video being a small blogging gnat - one person, not a news bureau!

i do find his statements interesting, however, in light of how things have proceeded. And didn't realize that 'Charlie' is so elusive...jc
