The Final Battle IV

“Greed!” Luke screamed as loud as he could. A deafening sound in the cold silence of the night. Both boys jumped as is fire-ants had crawled up their butts. Luke turned around and laughed. He knew he had scared the crap out of them. Sitting back down on the log, Luke continued in a calm and deliberate tone: “Greed boys.” “It was nothing but greed that killed your father.”

“From 2009 thru 2012, there was a series of Economy Rescue Programs. None worked. Inflation was running wild, forty two percent unemployment. The ship was sinking.” “Milk was twenty six dollars a gallon, ten dollars for bread, hell, a McDonalds “happy meal” was seventeen dollars. Not many people were “happy” anymore.” Tom picked up the bottle of Jim Beam and held it out for his Uncle. Luke said thanks, but waved it off. He was already feeling the effects of the bourbon and had a long night ahead. He tossed the bottle cap to Tom and continued: “Anyway, in early 2013, the Wall Street wizards devised a “brilliant” plan to control the economy. They reasoned that the root cause of the collapse was “cash”.

“The plan was to do away with cash. People were hoarding it and not spending. There was no way to track and tax cash. Each tax payer would be issued a government credit card. All wage earnings would be credited to their account, and all purchases would be deducted from their account.” “Since the government already had control over all electronic commutations, it would be a easy transition.” “Well, Congress bought it, and the “Puppet” in the Whitehouse signed the plan into law.” “The one part of the plan that was not made public was that The Bank of China had been contracted to handle all transactions.” “But their “plan” worked. As far as Wall Street was concerned. Wall Street “did” control the economy. They made trillions of dollars. And the people suffered even more.”

Luke looked at his watch, noting it was almost eleven o’clock, relit his pipe and turned his attention back to Tom and Ben. “It may sound harsh, but their “plan” turned out to be a good thing, - for the ACF.” “Before that, most people thought we were a few thousand lunatics running around destroying buildings and stealing weapons. The majority of our forces at that time were from HOG Chapters or Military personnel who could read the writing on the wall.” “Most thought we were some gang of anarchist or something”. “After the credit card scam, folks began to look at us differently. They started to understand that we were trying to protect them from the rogue politicians, power whores and the endless stream of corrupt bankers, which had infiltrated our government and way of life.”

Luke motioned to Tom for the bottle: “Think I’ll take that drink now.” Tom tossed the bottle, nearly making his Uncle fall off the log to catch it. “You out of your mind boy!” said Luke. “You break that bottle, I’ll have your brother whoop your butt.” Tom playfully elbowed Ben in the ribs and asked him: “Wan’a try it?” Although Tom was three years younger, he was a full head taller and fifty pounds heavier than Ben. Ben just punched him back in the shoulder and laughed. The three of them sat there in the coolness of the full moon. Looking out over the Potomac River. The last hour would be the longest wait of their lives.

Good stuff. Your right. If we don't get wiped out now, the inflation's going to kill us in the end. Good points to watch for.

Pretty scary stuff...There is a lot more we just don't know the real truth of the matter...interesting post...food for thought

B.B. said...

I know I haven't commented on your previous story posts, but I have been following and I think it's a really great story. Even thought it's kinda scary.

Willy D said...

Mastercheif: If we make it to the inflation. Most folks are being wiped out now.

Baron: I’m not sure I would want to know the truth about what’s going on behind closed doors in DC.

B.B.: Scary? I’m just reporting what I hear on the news. And combining it with what I know about history. To bad they don’t teach U.S. history in U.S. schools anymore.

Dean "D-Day" said...

Yes, revisionist history is all that's taught in school.
Good story.

Willy D said...

“D-Day”: Are you saying that someone rewrote history? I find that hard to believe since most of them can’t spelts ;)

BlackstoneBill said...

As a member of a HOG Chapter I want to know where I sign up. I think your writing will be more true to life in the near future than any of us want to believe.

Willy D said...

Blackstone: If you ride and find it hard to believe a damn thing any politician says, you’re already a member. As far as what the future holds – study history.

Lady Ridesalot said...

Your making me want to move to another planet! I can't believe there aren't more people out there who see what's happening!

WAKE UP AMERICA!!

Great chapter!

Willy D said...

Lady R: Hey, this is only a “made up” story. Don’t blame me if some idiot in DC found a copy of my draft and mistook it for their playbook.

“D-Day”: Or “be” silenced, if you allow it.

Big Daddy said...

It's an old cliche.....
But not nearly said enough.
Those who don't know history.
Are destined to repeat it.

‘‘Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States’’

— Noah Webster, 1888

Dean "D-Day" said...

Sure, why do you think there are so many of the "big government" types who keep trying to take away our 2nd Amendment?
They say it's for safety. Yeah, their safety.

Lady Ridesalot said...

What? This is not true? Why is everything so strangely familiar then?

Fiction?

Whew! I was getting scared for a while there! ;)

FLHX_Dave said...

Wholly shit brother. What the hell. You really are going to take over! And here I thought you were just f'in around all this time.

Very cool story with some scary "happening now" elements. We have become fat and lazy. I contributed to it in my own way. I'm done contributing. Lov'in the story.

Willy D said...

Big D: That seems to be the theme of our current administration.

Torch: Armed we are, and armed we shall stay.

“D-Day”: Safety? Sure, I’ll take the safety off.

Lady R: I never said it’s not “true”.

Dave: The nimrods running this show seem to be on the defense. So it’s probably a good idea if We, The People, got off our fat asses an went on the offence.
