there seems to be a lot of assuming that there will be a big event of some kind that we will see in the headlines, signaling that the SHTF. what if it just keeps going the way it is? economic death by 1,000 cuts. I think that would be more deadly like the frog in boiling water parable. people will keep thinking that they have time, but the poop is trickling over the fan a little at a time. this may be what we are watching wright now.
