Something is stirring in the news these days. The oil spill must not be getting as much ratings as it did when it first began. A shift has happened and now the economy is back in the spotlight. Worries of a "double-dip" recession has been floating around the air waves like in this article. As if we had any sort of recovery from the "first" recession. Is this "double-dip" as they are calling it, going to put the country, nay, the world over the edge? Probably not. This is going to be a slow and painful process for years to come. So much for a quick and epic collapse.
New Deal programs, those supposedly helped too. War, it could lead to the end of it all. For example what if: North Korea attacks South Korea (more than one sub this time). Israel uses this opportunity to take out Iran nuke facilities. China takes the opportunity to take back Taiwan. Venezuela is looking for an excuse to do something so it attacks one of those other South American countries. Mexican cartels move in further in the southwest U.S. We attack Canada because its got some oil...we might as well attack Alaska while we're at it. Who knows what the sneaky Russians would be up to if any one of these scenarios were to play out.
