Justathought, you and I have both been here. My tin hat is really retired. I do have a year of food on hand, but I am not going back to "that" world. "That" said, from an intellectual point of view, I really like Niman's perspective counterpoised with MSM's interpretation of TPTB statements, etc.
I will say one thing for sure: If something is GOING to happen, we will see it on Drudge, here, and/or on Recombinomics.
