Hurricanes, floods, wildfires and tornadoes.

US getting hit hard. They were saying because of the east coast had to shutdown, 15-20% tax revenue was lost. But damn, The US is taking a toll.

What are your guy's thoughts? I think its only going to get worse, specially this is the beginning of hurricane season.

Nothing that is beyond the variation of averages, as far as storms go.  Earthquakes worldwide, however, is another issue.  Remember that tsunamis are caused by undersea earthquakes and try to remember the very first tsunami that you can remember occurring that you learned about the same day, and not in a history class.  I'd be willing to bet that it was in the past decade.  We've had half a dozen tsunamis that I can think of in the past decade, and I can't remember one occurring before that in all of the 80's and maybe one in the 90's?  When the east coast was hit by the 5.9 a week before the hurricane, there was another earthquake in the western half of the US the very same day.  Not saying that this is out of bounds for the law of averages either, but it does make one wonder....

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
