    There are some conspiracies about the illuminati bringing in a NWO

    There are also some saying that oil companies are going to begin trading in more than just the US dollar and that is supposed to cause collapse

    There are also those saying that the bombing and school shootings were false flags as well as the navel base shooting.

    I don't know whats real but I would like to know if shits going to go down.

    You can call me stupid or ignorant or whatever for believing all this shit but I think it is important to at least take a look into it and make sure what they tell us is true.

    Mate you think you got worries, you should see the stuff happening in my country, and all the conspiracy theories around it, weird shit going down in the world now. If I wasn't a stoner I don't know what I would have done, but I reckon it's getting close to the time we we take our ladies no matter what stage of growth they are in and head for the mountains. Why can't stoner's have their own country and everybody can kill themselves and run after money and power and leave us alone. I man has to dream right?

    There have been dozens, if not hundreds, of predictions that have stated not only one Country would end, but the entire planet. All have, of course, been incorrect. Why should we believe this prediction? How is it different from any of the others?

    One fact did it for me:

    No nation in history has come back from more than $10 trillion in debt

    IMO, economic collapse at this point is inevitable, all our elected officials do is put a bandaid on the problem

    We have the privilege of 'owning' the petro-dollar as they call it.

    Shit will hit the fan eventually.

    To be honest though, I believe for as much f'd up evil stuff is going on, there are 'people' protecting us as well. Just be what you came here to be and do what you came here to do. If you need help, ask - you might be surprised that over time, you got everything you needed.

    Don't believe it if you don't want to seem stupid and ignorant.

    When I was stupid and ignorant, I believed all this too. Nothing new here. The Hippies were saying this 50 years ago, the Bohemians, 70 years ago, Marxists 100 years ago.

    It is all Anti-Constitution hopefulness and is sick to the core. BTW, I am glad you said stupid. There are none so stupid as those that refuse to learn.

    China buys all sorts of oil without using the dollar, Russia sells lots of oil to China and no US dollars ever exchange hands, so does Iran.

    Only the OPEC countries have their oil sales tied to Dollars.

    I cannot find that figure. Provide a link? IAC, here is what happened to Rome. No rule of law. It was just a 1/2 way thing. Your entire family was murder over your dis-credit. No Roman paid taxes, so they had no skin in the game. The Senate was so fucked up, there had to be a Caesar, to hold it all together. But, they had no way to get one leader except thru violence. The first one went to the Senate to be murdered to make a statement. The second one had to chase down Brutus, Pompey and Antony, to get the job.

    We learned about the rule of law from all that.

    Sure, there is still Gold. But, only the Greenback is equal to gold. I hope you are not saying China pays Russia in Yuan.
