If you think The Banana Republic of America (formerly the US of A) is dangerous now, just wait. As economic conditions in the BRA go from bad to much, much worse, the violence and social unrest will intensify. BRA cities will come to resemble Third World cities, where lavish gated communities of millionaires and billionaires can be only a few miles from squalid shantytown slums. The BRA doesn’t have the Desperate People Doing Desperate Things Tax (DPDDTT) just yet, but it will. DPDDTT is a term that describes the desperate things that desperate people do in Third World countries in order to survive—for example, kidnapping, armed robbery, violent home invasions. If you live in Caracas or Guatemala City and have a lot of money, you either pay for armed bodyguards or pay the DPDDTT. And you’d better treat your armed bodyguards really well because the DPDDTT collectors are very good at bribing armed bodyguards. Kidnapping has become a major industry in parts of Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and the Asian Pacific, and it will become a major industry in the BRA when the BRA’s newly desperate get sick of being desperate.
“The United States has collapsed economically, socially, politically, legally, constitutionally, and environmentally.”—Paul Craig Roberts
“We’re getting ready to face a really big crisis, even bigger than the World War II Generation.” —Alex Jones
“Los Estados Unidos has turned into a banana republic, a fascist banana republic.”—Gerald Celente
“When the money stops flowing down to the man on the street, the blood begins to flow in the streets”—Gerald Celente
“This country is a boiling cauldron of hatred and anger, and all it is going to take is just the right ‘spark’ to cause all of this hatred and anger to absolutely explode.”—Michael T. Snyder
“Brace yourself. The American empire is over. And the descent is going to be horrifying.”—Chris Hedges
“In America, the problem is that interest rates are too low. They have to go up. We can’t have an economy with interest rates at zero. If the Fed lets interest rates go up, we have to realize that we will have a deeper recession, we have to realize that banks are going to fail.”—Peter Schiff
“Prepare, prepare, prepare. Three months worth of water, fresh water, first aid supplies. If you are going to buy weapons, do it now for self-defense because it’s obvious that with 11 policemen being shot in a 24-hour period and police forces being cut back, you will have to look out for yourself. The predators will come out.”—Michael Ruppert
“If our research is right, Americans will have to make some tough choices on how they’ll go about surviving when basic necessities become nearly unaffordable and the economy becomes dangerously unstable.” —Keith Fitz-Gerald, Chief Investment Strategist for the Money Map Press
“When people get hungry and desperate, things get ugly. And I’ll tell you where it’s really going to get ugly: crime is going to go to levels we’ve never seen before.” —Gerald Celente
“A lot of times, prosperity makes people very, very lackadaisical. They wear like it is a protective cloak, when really, it brings the wolves.”—Alex Jones
Yes, the wolves certainly do come out in Third World hellholes, and those wolves can smell money from miles away. When those wolves realize that working 12-hour days in a sweatshop isn’t paying their bills, they decide that the Desperate People Doing Desperate Things Tax is a better way to keep food on the table. The DPDDTT can be very profitable when a billionaire or millionaire in Rio de Janeiro, Manila or San Salvador doesn’t want his kidnapped wife or kidnapped daughter to come home in 20 different pieces (it really sucks when that happens).
Welcome to the violent, bloody, rotting, decaying, collapsing Banana Republic of America, land of the corrupt and home of the desperate.
