The Council Has Spoken!! This Week’s Watcher’s Council Results


The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week, carved eternally in the records of cyberspace.

This week’s winning piece, An American Descent Into Hell by The Noisy Room definitely sees the glass as half empty in her take on what she thinks America is on the way to becoming. Here’s a slice:

It’s hard not to see the signs all around us that America has begun a cataclysmic downward spiral in finances and morality. It’s like watching a slow motion murderous wreck, all the while denying that it is actually occurring. I assure you, what is unfolding in the US now is all too real. It’s a reality that is about to smack Americans full frontal in the face and many will never even see it coming until it is way too late.

It is hard for me to imagine how people cannot see what is happening in finances and in politics in their own country. It is in the news if you look at all… It is on the Internet for all to see… It is whispered by many all around us if you just listen.

The stock market has gone down for the last 6 weeks in a row. And if stock futures are to be believed at all, things will not be good Monday morning this next week. The last time the stock market dropped seven weeks in a row was in 2001 when the dot.com bubble burst. I have said for a long, long time that the stock market is fiction and is being manipulated. But they are running out of ways to fake recovery and growth – they can’t hide forever just how bad things are about to become. We are in free fall economically and stand to not only enter another great depression, but a great, great depression in the next twelve months. Only this time, we don’t have manufacturing or a winnable war to bring us out of it. Obama has ensured that – he has masterfully implemented Cloward and Piven at every turn and we have just sat here allowing him to do it.

China claims that we are already defaulting on our debt and we are virtually owned by them. Between borrowing everything but our soul (and that may be included as well) and letting the Chinese in to build cities along with business, we are the prize fools on the planet. Our Asian overlords will come knocking to collect and considering the regard they hold us in, I don’t think it will be what our elites would consider ‘civilized.’

And as inflation and high gas prices are just clearing their throat, we are in for one hell of a ride.

In our non-Council category, our winner was Sultan Knish’s Redistributing Freedom To Tyranny submitted by New Zeal, a piece that dealt with how the West is outsourcing its traditional culture and freedoms in favor of multicultural and ‘international’ norms that are far different.
