any truth to these rumors?

    One of the big issues with the 17 plus trillion in debt is that it has been heavily monetized, which may be ending. Another issue is no will by either party to cut back, let alone balance the budget or run at a surplus.

    There could be a major "correction", or the current inflation and gradual decrease in purchasing power could keep on keeping on.

    There are several big "bubbles" out there. The "student loan bubble" big. The social security/retirement bubble is humongous.

    Very elegant analogy.
    Economically, we are indeed soaking in a lovely bubble bath, but when they all burst, we will find ourselves in a tub of hot, dirty water.

    Optimists can never predict the future, however pessimists have done the math.

    Here's some math. If just 10% of gunowners showed up for a fight they would outnumber ALL military, police, and government alphabet soup organizations by a large margin. And the 10% that show up would be better shots, on the whole, than those put up against them.
    If the U.S. Congress was put in charge of the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in under six months.
