Monday, Nov. 14th, 2011 – The world is becoming a very nasty place. With the debt crisis comes government, making promises that it can’t keep. You can’t be sure if you’ll be confronted by a predator at any given moment. The depths of lawlessness is worse than I thought. Praying people should pray for the place that they live. The sword is coming upon the land. We must be faithful watchmen. If there was any good news today, I missed it. If there is any hope out of this mess, it’s that the masks are coming off. Politicians embarrass each other, more than their countries. Bankers come up short with the funny money. Media financial gurus talk like horseplayers with a hot tip on a Superfecta. Then, for entertainment purposes only, we have Lil’ Abner’s Students Wildly Indignant about Nearly Everything (S.W.I.N.E.), aka Occupy Wall Street. There are a lot of places in the world that you won’t see in a travel brochure. While everyone seems to have something to run amuck about, some of us can gladly let it pass us by. People come and go, and if it’s done properly, there isn’t too much commotion.
I see this as people hoping they have time to grab their stocks and bonds, on the way out of a burning building. As time goes on, it may not be worth the effort. The financial landscape is getting swept by a wildfire. Europe is the match, paper is the fuel.
Smart people. Beyond water, food and shelter, no one should risk anything beyond securing the priorities.
That’s what I see, but I wouldn’t risk even that much. Water, food and shelter, in that order. If anyone wants to take greater risk than that, they should bump their head and give themselves amnesia.
As George Washington said, “Government is force. It is not eloquence. It is not reason. It is a useful servant and a fearsome master.”
Regardless of the poll results, the Wars of Corporate Conquest continue.
Future discrepancies in the details of the EU bailout plan could precipitate a cascade failure in the bond market. Let’s see how far the politicians and bankers will go, to save their own hides.
The doctor is either an idiot or a liar. That widespread an area of contamination can only come from a nuclear disaster. Unless the doctor can show proof that radioactive iodine is exclusively used in treatment, and of such widespread distribution, he should retract his statement.
The financial news this morning screams at people to batten down the hatches and circle the wagons. There isn’t anything safe from risk, anymore. Governments make promises they can’t keep. Banks try to persuade people to hold still for the fleecing. Instability is the order of the day.
This smells like the beginning of a cascade failure in the bond market. Future discrepancies in the details of the European bailout would only make the situation worse.
The preferred business model of the central banks has always been slavery. They peddle dependency and deprive people of their independence. The travesty is in that people have voluntarily taken on the yoke of bondage.
The bailouts certainly aren’t Rule of Law. This system of unjust weights and measures will come to a bitter end. Unfortunately, populations will suffer for it. When people are complicit in receiving “benefits”, they also suffer the punishment.
People can argue about whether ot not there is a Savior of last resort. The system of unjust weights and measures is an abomination, willful rebellion for which there is no forgiveness. Central banks can restore that which they stole by fraud, or take their just reward. Debt brings poverty. The currency is the lock on the prison gate.
I saw this coming, 30 years ago. I began telling people to get away from the cities, way back then. After the past 3 years of homelessness, I know that it’s worse than I thought. The police hunt homeless people like animals. I’ve heard accounts of homeless people used for Taser practice, or worse. I’m very happy to be indoors, now.
