How shock waves will hit US if Greece drops euro
Posted 21 June 2012 - 10:13 PM
Seems anybody who has studied history at all would know that the Euro was just a bad idea. You just cannot have a common currency without a strong federal gov over the entire group of member states, which basically would mean giving up national sovereignty. I know that is what some have been pushing towards, but will it happen or will the entire house of cards tumble first?

Have you hugged your goose today?

I want to thank google search, not being able to sleep, and a one year old who i wish would wean and sleep through the night. :-p
On a serious note, what I've heard is that we could have a LONG bank holiday here and that shelves at stores could/would empty (if you could pay), deliveries including fuel to gas stations would stop because companies and people wouldn't know how/when/if they would get paid.
I've suggested to DH that we cash out my small retirement so he can purchase a shed and we can purchase a few bigger prep items (grain mill, berkey). The shed would give us space to out the rain barrels in the off-season, too.
Double check all of your preps, water, food, medical, clothing, etc. Do what you can now.

I read that article you posted, good article although all the others looked like celeb crud on the right side of the Daily Caller, lol. Still, I agree with the writer's summary of things going on.
Now that we see what has happened to the EU, we can see it hasn't worked. If they return to nationalism instead, those countries who strive will make it , again, in time, if they are not continually bled by those that do not.
I see Iceland, Ireland and Scotland returning to nationalism as we speak now. Looks like it is inevitable that the UK will not stand with EU much longer, looking at the history, seeing that being PC has not worked, well it is only a matter of time. Unless the globalists keep at their agenda. And they will try to do that, which adds problems.
Understanding the newer alliances compared to their long history of not being allies but rather competitors, in the long haul is a concept many today, who are ignorant of this is important. Long time feelings. Playing nice hasn't worked too well. Not that they would go back to warring, but I do think being more reserved about the connections is probably wise.
That article was honest about the whole situation. good read.
