This is the now.

I take absolutely no satisfaction in saying this but if you read my previous entries, this is something I was I was extremely afraid of and why I was annoyed that Wall Street did not show more humility.

Man Crashes Plane Into Texas I.R.S. Office

From what I can tell, this guy was not some nutjob hiding in a shack in the woods. He was an intelligent, normal guy who had his own business. He got a hit with a combination setbacks which literally set him off.

“The main thing I want to put out there is that this is an isolated incident here; there is no cause for alarm,” said the Austin police chief, Art Acevedo, in a televised news conference at midday. Asked how he could be sure, Mr. Acevedo said, “You have to take my word at it, don’t you?”

Actually there is a cause for alarm because this economy is not forcing peoples back to the walls, it is putting them through it.

Below are two articles that are another indication of the economic mood in this country.

Police say man who jumped from bridge was unemployed Rye resident

Rye's Highland Hall resident found dead.

Rye is a very prominent area. It requires a tremendous amount of capital just to even buy a home. And now some residents in these areas are starting to lose their f**king minds. It used to be the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. But now everyone is getting hit. Let's be frank. The poors are better prepared for this type of TARFU. The riches have no f**king clue what to do now that they are waist up in the s**t. And what is even more f**ked up, these articles probably represent a fraction s**tstorm that is hitting everyone.

It's not terrorism, it's not Y2K, it's not a flu pandemic, it is the lives we are living that we should in fear of. This is now a George Romero world and the zombies are people who have been beaten down by the economy and their own personal finances.

I have no solutions. No advice. Just watch your backs, your bank accounts and be prepared for the worst case scenario.
