Oct 1st – 3rd Infantry Division 1st Brigade Combat Team stationed on American soil in order to “help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack” I especially like the ‘massive poisoning’ part – since we seem to have a lot of that around (not).
Oct 3rd – Despite the protest of millions of Americans, the horrible bail-out bill is passed by a margin of 263-171 by congress and signed into law by President Bush an hour later. Thus starting the largest fraud and theft in the history of the world, the ramifications of which are still being felt, and we may never recover from.
Oct 7th – Dow Posts worst retreats since 1937 – (an aside, AIG came back for more bail-out money having just received 85 million a few weeks before and after treating their executive to a weekend of spa treatments etc. sickening)
Oct 9th – US National debt clock runs out of space – US debt runs over 10 TRILLION dollars
Oct 14th – Economic crisis goes global. European governments start bailing out their banks etc.
Oct 24th – US attacks Pakistan again (they started in Sept the first time) !
Oct 26th - US attacks Syria
Oct. 27th – Billions wiped out of people’s pensions (i.e. more looting and theft!)
Oct 30th – Feds cut interest rates making things worse! Also – Fed starts bailing out the world!
Oct 31st – 7.5 million people owe more on their houses then their houses are currently worth.
I don’t know about you, but it seems a lot of unprecedented things happened this month. You can make up your own mind!
