Our Country Is Heading towards A Financial Collapse

About 3 weeks ago I published a disturbing post titled, A Harrowing Prophecy of The Future. In the post I posted a frightening video predicting the imminent demise of our dollar as the world's reserve currency.  ( I would highly suggest watching the video it is that chilling.)   Now I am afraid to note that our economic demise is occurring much more rapidly then expected. Just to give you a snapshot, in the past three weeks nations such as India, China, and Russia have already begun trading in other currencies thus lessening the demand of our already weakened dollar.  After that countries such as China will begin dumping our quickly devaluing dollars in favor of other currencies causing massive inflation. This will cause our dollar to collapse literally over night.  To read the short but distressing article from The Creative Minority Report click here.

Wall St. Black Tuesday Oct 29, 1929.
It is important to note that I am not trying to be a dooms day prophet. I hate bad news. I am just a regular, married man just finishing up my college degree.  The last thing that I want to think about now is how our country's economy will collapse. I am simply coming from a place of utter concern about the well being of my country.  Why? because my country is not some abstract concept it is made up real people, my family and friends. Mark my words if our dollar loses its prestigious world reserve currency status then our way of life will be profoundly effected overnight.   Think that the prices of gas and groceries are bad now then just wait and see what happens if our dollar loses its world currency reserve status.  This is the time to prepare for the worst.  We must pray, fast, and make the appropriate preparations.  Most of all we must remain steadfast in our hope even if our nation's economy crumbles remembering Jesus' words, "In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." John 16:33  Now more than ever we must cling to our Lord!

  1. The "collapse" of the dollar would be a huge benefit to American manufacturers, who would no longer be forced to compete with cheap foreign goods. The trade deficit would reverse itself. Something to think about.

  2. Possibly in the long term there might be some benefits. But what about the short term? What about the consequences of hyper inflation? And if our dollar collapses which currency would become the world reserve currency?

  3. I don't expect hyperinflation. We might be looking at a decade or so of 10% inflation a year, but that is not hyperinflation. It would create some difficulties, but nothing we haven't seen before (Carter era).

    I think the lowering of the value of the dollar against other currencies is inevitable, and ultimately a good thing, because it means that the standard of living is rising in other countries (which is great if you care about international poverty) and that to the extent that there's a leveling, Americans will be able to slowly rebuild the manufacturing base that we have outsourced.

    I'm also happy about a globalized economy because I think economic ties will become an ever-stronger incentive against war. It's not in China's or our interests to have a war because our economies are so interdependant. Maybe dollars and yuan will speak louder than conscience can.

10 Great Quotes from The Book of Sirach

The book of Sirach is a book that is often overlooked in the bible. This is unfortunate since this book contains many wise, practical saying on how to live a virtous life. The book was believed to have been written between 200-175 B.C.E.

Here are ten quotes that I feel best reflect this timeless work.

1."Do not become a beggar by feasting with\borrowed money, when you have nothing in your purse." Sirach 18:33

2."In all you do remember the end of your life, and then you will never sin." 7:36

3.."Glory and dishonor come from speaking; a man's tongue is his downfall." 5:13"

4."A wise man is cautious in everything." 18:27

5."One who trusts others is light minded." 19:4

6."If you pursue justice, you will obtain it and wear it as a glorious robe." 27:8

7."Many have fallen by the edge of the sword, but no many as have fallen because of the tongue." 28:18

8." In all of your work be industrious and no sickness will…

George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and The Afterlife

I was stunned, as was most of the world was when I heard about the passing of George Michael on Christmas day.  Michael possessed enormous talent was and one of the most successful acts in the 1980's and early 90's

Shortly after Carrie Fisher died.  Fisher was famous for her legendary role as princess Leia from the Star Wars movies.  Strangely her mother also died the day after.

2016 was notable year for celebrity deaths.

Some names include: Prince, Glenn Frey, David Bowie,  Doris Roberts, Alan Rickman, and Muhammad Ali.

As a Catholic these deaths got me thinking about the transient nature of life, and the inevitability of death.

Marcus Aurelius, the stoic, emperor, philosopher king wrote about the passing nature of life as he reflected, "Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away."

Even though I agree mostly with Aurelius&#…

Me vs. The Almighty

There is famous scene in the bible where Jacob wrestles with God.  Jacob fights with God until God takes out a bone from Jacob's thigh. Interestingly, God eventually relents and stops fighting with Jacob. After this dramatic incident Jacob is renamed Israel which literally means, "he who struggles with God."

I can relate to this story.  Many times in my life I have argued with God. I still do. (my wife can attest to that.) Many times I have criticized his tactics, his ways, and his wisdom. In my worst moments I have even used choice language. I have a complicated relationship with God. Like Jacob I have wrestled with God. (thigh bone still intact)

Recently I approached a priest friend of mine and told him of my struggles with God.  I expected that he would chide me for my lack of respect and informality. What this priest said was illuminating and encouraging. He told me that it was OK at times to be angry with God, God understood. He in fact encouraged this honesty and o…
