We are in strange times right now, and it seems to me we are in big trouble when it comes to our Economy. People are without jobs, some businesses are closing for good because of the virus that is holding us hostage. Still the Stock Market is doing great, just great. Could it be they are printing money and feeding it to the market just to keep the Corporations healthy? That's not free markets by anyone's imagination. As I have said many times before, it looks as if our Empire is crumbling all around us, and the Economy is not any different. Printing money to keep the Elite's profits from dwindling is not good for America. After all, who is going to pay that debt? No jobs, no income, and no way to pay our own debt, let alone the National Debt they are ringing up in our name, and giving it to the wealthiest people in the Country. I just don't trust American News now days, and we all need to inject information from other sources to figure out the Real News. Here are a few links where they try and figure it all out..
