Thanks for the post, Johnny. What Mauldin says is true but he doesn’t go far enough. I used to read Mauldin a lot. I stopped because Mauldin — like the media — repeatedly ignores the actions of the criminal syndicate behind the scenes, including the banking cartel, stealing what’s left of the wealth of America & its middle class. Mauldin merely blames misguided decisions for America’s problems. I cast my lot with the observations of Catherine Austin Fitts, Gerald Celente, Bob Chapman, Jim Willie, Professor Black, and many others, detailing the continual corruption at the highest levels.
