I Highly Recommend Watching PBS's "Ghost Army" ...It's Amazing What The Did....

In June 1944, a secret U.S. Army unit went into action in Normandy. The weapons they deployed were decidedly unusual: hundreds of inflatable tanks and a one-of-a-kind collection of sound effects records. Their mission was to use bluff, deception, and trickery to save lives. Many were artists, some of who would become famous, including a budding fashion designer named Bill Blass. They painted and sketched their way across Europe, creating a unique visual record of their journey. The story of what these men accomplished was hushed up by the Pentagon for more than forty years.

  1. Many years later the government, seizing upon the success of the ghost army, built the newly discovered ghost healthy economy.

    The ghost healthy economy is a series of deceptions built mostly by bankers which simulate a healthy economy. Some of the deceptions include the splitting of minimum wage jobs, the creation of vast amounts of money out of thin air, a stock market that only goes up and makes people think they are wealthy, and a balance sheet wherein the debit side of the ledger is grossly massaged and lied about- to make it appear that everything is hunky dory.

    The ghost healthy economy relies on the political power of the party in office to pull off the deception. The ruling party blows smoke up everyone's ass by turning over false information to a complicit media who in turn, dutifully present the information to semi conscious 'mericans who then go about the business of believing everything is beautiful.

    The ghost healthy economy is a classified mission. It's real main purpose is to buy time to enrich and repair all of the bankrupt balance sheets of the TBTF banks and our insolvent nation. Years from now, with debt levels in the stratosphere and most of the architects of the ghost heathy economy dead, some future class of semi conscious 'mericans will wonder what the fuck happened. The mission will have been deemed a giant success.
