On Wednesday I built a post around the following 1997 prediction from a book titled “The Fourth Turning” An American Prophecy written by William Strauss and Neil Howe.

An impasse over the federal budget reaches a stalemate.

The president and Congress both refuse to back down, triggering a near-total government shutdown.

The president declares emergency powers.

Congress rescinds his authority.

Dollar and bond prices plummet.

The president threatens to stop Social Security checks.

Congress refuses to raise the debt ceiling.

Default looms.

Wall Street panics.

For your consideration fellow FireDogs please find below  two videos from “YouTube.com” presenting a Thom Hartmann interview of one of the Authors from Thom’s “Conversations with Great Minds Series”. The half hour this will take from you will be well spent, I promise.

Well FireDogs, whataya think?
