Well I must thank for the provision of the USGS survey links. Began revisiting this subject of "world changes" predicted by Edgar Cayce when Mt. Aetna fired up again "in spades" last week. Then comes this Alaskan quake at 7.9 which ain't no lil' squeaker by a long shot. This called to mind thew devastating earthquake that hit the Alaskan areas back in the late 60's or early 70's that made the cover of National Geographic.
Well you can now throw in the shutdown of the Alaskan pipeleine and the flow of oil as the most far-reaching reverberation considering what a Republican-ruled Congress has advocated as their solution to dependency upon "foreign oil"; namely first pumping more Fed *tax* dollars to subsidiize exploring and and extracting on a gamble that there would be more than 6 months supply for all the investment.
Well where there is one earthquake of that magnitude one can plan for others and this issue will ever be presented on the floor of the Senate should it go Republican and become a machine congress for this Oil-soaked , some would say "stained" , administration. ( Can't wait to hear of Enron's Fastow's deal to sing like a birdie fingering Skilling and Bush jr's good ol buddy Kenny Boy with whom Dubya became so damn chummy while he was Governor of Texas.
We all say what a disaster it was when Clinton was won the white house with an *all* Democrat Congress. I'm even *more* distrustful of an *all* Republican congress behind this "Economically challenged" admin with its head up it's Iraq.
If this happens get ready for a replay of astonomical federal debt financing with the 21st century Military Industrial Complex firsat at the hogtrough and the subsequent raising of fed interest rates that will inevitably occur because the fed is totally dependent upon Fed debt to finance any war effort and no one , including foreign investors , will buy T-notes at such low interest rates.
all that would be left is printing more money and that always leads to *inflation*.
Wait for it.
