The End is Near!

And so it begins..... 
Update 6: While we wait to learn what was discussed during Mary 
Barra's Monday afternoon meeting with Larry Kudlow, here's a chart to 
put today's job cuts in context: GM's job cuts are the seventh largest 
since 2001. GM also claimed the sixth-place spot with layoffs of some 
20,000 workers in Detroit during the depths of the crisis. 
It will make the decision for Foxconn to delay development all the 
easier.... although that was probably the plan all along. 
Gonna also be a long cold Winter - no sunspot activity - predictions 
once again of a mini-ice age. Lots of construction Workers going to be 
laid off - and find themsleves in an economic crunch. It happened to 
Daily Job Cuts - it can be gut wrenching to look at.... 
Here is what a SmartCity in China does ...... Cory Mason can't wait! 
Beijing plans to reward and punish its residents based on data that 
will be collected from various departments monitoring citizens’ social 
behavior, according to a detailed “action plan” posted on Monday to 
the city’s municipal website. 
By the beginning of 2020, the announcement declares, China’s capital 
city will have all residents officially locked into the permanent 
surveillance program, part of a broader effort to have every Chinese 
citizen rated on a “social credit system” decreeing what public 
services a person can use based on their obedience to laws and loyalty 
to the communist regime. 
The government will use the data collected to assess citizens’ 
behavior to decide if an individual is law-abiding and “trustworthy” 
to the Communist Party. 
Residents who behave properly in the eyes of the Chinese government 
will receive high credit scores, while residents who misbehave will 
receive low scores, causing them to lead more difficult lives. 
“Efforts will be made to build a market supervision mechanism with 
corporate credit as the core,” states Beijing’s municipal website, 
adding that it will explore the implementation of what it calls “the 
personal integrity project,” which will utilize residents’ credit 
scores for “market access, public services, tourism,” and “fields such 
as entrepreneurship and job hunting.” 
Higher scores can also open the “green channel,” which will expedite 
residents’ applications for higher quality “education and medical 
Impoverishing the Masses is Conservation by Other Means - and will be 
necessary when the oil shortages begin.....
