You’ll See It When You Believe It
Well, it is morning. (somewhere)
And it’s great to be alive.
Unfortunately, like many of you, my Bank account is still runnin’ on empty.
Which isn’t so great.
Not that I’m surprised.
Sure, all week long we’ve been hearing that this is our week.
Actually since last week we’ve been hearing that THIS will be our week.
What am I thinking.
We’ve been hearing the very same thing for many many years now.
That we’re in the window, it has to happen now, everybody (except of course the Bad Guys) wants it to happen now.
It HAS TO happen now, or else this or that will happen.
And if this or that happens, then that will be really bad and “they” (whoever they are) don’t want this or that bad thing to happen so they will definitely do it this week so this and that don’t happen.
Well, they didn’t do it.
It didn’t happen.
So, shockingly enough, this and that IS (are?) happening.
Which makes one wonder, even though we continue to hear they don’t want this and that to happen and are supposedly doing everything possible to avoid this and that happening, perhaps they actually do want all this and that bad stuff to happen.
What is this, like Day 5 of the 2008 Stock Market Meltdown Flashback.
Back to a time when the markets crumbled so horribly that many, like myself, still have yet to recover.
Sure, they threw tons of money at the Banks to keep that shaky House of Cards visibly afloat.
And as difficult as it is to believe, they’ve managed to keep that facade floating for over a decade now.
Perhaps you can get a pig to hold still long enough to apply lipstick to it after all.
Worked for Arnold Ziffel so why not the entire Banking industry.
In reality, that charade will have to end at some point.
You can only throw so much bad money after bad before you run out bad money to throw.
And what will happen when the smoke dissipates and the entire world finds out that nothing was ever fixed.
Nothing was ever made better.
No problems we ever solved.
They were simply covered in cotton candy and all that candy melted.
And when it melted it did so in global proportions.
One thing’s for certain, it won’t be pretty.
And eyes will be opened to the magnitude of all that’s been going on for far too long.
Which brings me back to my original thoughts behind this post.
That being the RV/GCR and how it relates to all of this global meltdown stuff.
For better or worse, I’m still a believer.
I believe the GCR will happen.
And when it does, the RV will follow soon after.
I have absolutely no idea when but I do believe it will.
The question for me now is when it does happen, will I actually believe it has happened.
And that it’s okay to finally get a bit excited.
After hearing that it’s about to happen, on the verge of happening and yet nothing ever happens for far too many years, I’m not so sure I’m gonna believe it when it really does happen for real.
Even if I were to see it.
And that has me a bit nervous.
Will I miss the Cash Out oops, I mean EXCHANGE window?
Or will I sleep right through the entire process, refusing to get duped yet again.
I certainly hope not.
Crazy as it may seem I’m not at all sure of what it’s going to take to convince me that the release is real.
Will it be released at night?
Why not during the day?
Are weekends better?
What about during the week when all the Banks are open.
Do all the Banks need to be open?
Or should they be closed during that illustrious Saturday night “all Banks are closed” window.
All we know is that it’s always 5:00 somewhere.
And the release will happen on a day ending in “Y”.
Beyond that, the release date is anybody’s guess.
I don’t think even those that are supposedly releasing this thing have an idea of when that will be.
I doubt we’ll ever get any sort of advanced notice.
None that we’ll ever believe anyway.
Which, on one hand, I completely understand.
If they were to announce anything in advance, that would make this whole thing appear as if it’s real.
And they can’t have that happening.
And I get that.
People would scurry to buy each and every piece of “basket-worthy” currency available.
But on the other hand, it makes little to no sense at all.
It would seem to me that they’d want to eliminate the pandemonium that’s been created by all of the “get to the Bank ASAP so you don’t miss out on your 10 day cash out window” hype that’s been floating around Dinarland for far too long.
If you were around maybe 8 or 9 years ago then you’ll surely recall all of the trouble caused by the folks stating week after week that beyond a doubt “This will be your LAST BROKE FRIDAY!”
Sure enough, first thing Monday morning numerous Bank parking lots across the country were filled with busloads of folks banging on the glass doors, demanding to be “Cashed Out”.
Claiming that a certain well known Guru had promised them on Friday that the RV was going to happen over the weekend and they could simply show up at the Bank first thing Monday morning, dinar in hand.
Needless to say the Banks were on fire!
And rightfully so.
From that point on the Banks started their Recorded Ridiculousness Campaign stating “We never have, never will, not now, not ever, never have anything to do with the dinar” followed by a loud “Click!”.
Only problem with that was many of us had purchased our first dinar from those very same Banks.
So we weren’t as easily swayed as others that were to arrive later in the game.
Yet, with the way things are headed, with a long rumored short exchange period looming, seems to me they’re heading in the same direction.
Should they clarify things just a bit better, as far as the slowest roll-out in history is to play out.
Not only for our benefit but for theirs as well.
Hmmmm… I’m not sure.
Yes, it would be nice but at the same time, it might open up an entirely new can of worms.
Which at this point would likely be twisted into yet another delay.
The last thing we need right now is another last ditch hitch or glitch to slow this thing down any further..
So I guess all we can do is roll with it.
To wait it out.
I don’t believe they think we’re simply going to fade away.
It’s much too late for them to hope for that at this point.
Even if they do, good luck with that.
No way us Toothless Crackheads are giving up that easily.
We’ve come much too far to bail out now.
We have to see this thing through ’til the end.
Even if we don’t recognize the actual “end” when we see it.
Perhaps it’s what Churchill meant when he said “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning”.
Whether it’s the end or the beginning or somewhere in between, I only hope that it’s closer to the end than it is the beginning because honestly, I’m pretty much done with this thing.
This adventure lost most of its allure many years ago.
At this point it a seemingly endless, cuticle grinding, uphill marathon and I feel like Forrest Gump in the middle of the desert.
I’m worn out.
I just want to cross the finish line and get rolling on my new “Pay It Forward” path.
I feel as if I’ve been in a time loop for the past decade and I’m ready to jump off this mind altering Merry-Go-Round before I lose my cookies.
Please continue to keep your eyes peeled for a sign.
A signal of some sort.
Something that will finally convince us that this part or the journey is over and that we can finally begin our new lives.
Lives filled with hope.
Filled with dreams.
Dreams of enriching the lives of others.
It’s gonna happen.
I can only hope we believe it when we see it.
