Posts Tagged ‘Economy’

“Money, money, money…,” Pink Floyd.  Rick Newman from US News and World Report claims the reason the economy and consumer confidence is rising is because of an underground economy called cash!  That people are trying to avoid taxes and the chance that personal wealth may be siezed.  Imagine that as the EU orders Cypress Banks to seize 10% of all savings accounts. 

Our humble opinion is that it is more than cash, it is the knowledge that for the most part cash remains untraceable.  Want to buy ammunition, booze, cigarettes,fuel, a generator, too many batteries, vegetable seeds when you’re not a farmer?   Anything that might be slightly questionable? Pay cash, an untraceable purchase.   No one need know how many beers you drink or how many miles you go to get it.

A Pew Reserach Center report claimed that in the US, three quarters of citizens don’t trust the government!  The trust in institutions is being questioned and no one should be surprised.  From Fast & Furious to Benghazi, to all the way back to President Bill Clinton saying he did not have sex with that woman- it should be no surprise why eyebrows rise.  Credit cards, library cards, iP logs -all leaving trails for Google or the Government.

Yep, cash is King.

EZ New Flag

Plagued with debt problems, the E.U. has apparently changed its name to the Eurozone.  

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, By any other name would smell as sweet.” 

Here Juliet tells Romeo that a name is an artificial and meaningless convention, and that she loves the person who is called “Montague”, not the Montague name and not the Montague family. Romeo, out of his passion for Juliet, rejects his family name and vows, as Juliet asks, to “deny (his) father” and instead be “new baptized” as Juliet’s lover. This one short line encapsulates the central struggle and tragedy of the play.

No matter the name, The European Union, European Commission, E.U. or Eurozone, these countries are not playing for love, but for money and survival in the real world- far from Shakespeare’s time.

The flag looks like another spooky eyeball staring at you from The New World Order. There are 12 stars and 27 member states. Maybe it has to do with a clock having twelve positions, implying in time that there will only be 12 members in the future or that time will tell if the Eurozone survives.

More on the EU or Eurozone here at  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:European_Union and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurozone.

Greenland is the only territory to have left the EU and it would appear, it was a smart move.

For all the implications  for the value of sterling and gilts of talks to form a British government, investors are this weekend probably more concerned about negotiations to stabilize the euro involving the European Central Bank and European government heads – as Jim O’Neill of Goldman Sachs pointed out on the Today Programme.

The big threat, not just to the health of the eurozone economy but to the world’s prosperity, is that Continental banks are finding it harder and more expensive to borrow for longer periods on wholesale markers.

That’s because their creditors are worried about their substantial loans to overstretched eurozone governments, through their respective holdings of assorted eurozone government bonds.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/robertpeston/2010/05/the_ecb_matters_more_than_cleg.html

In the midst of a financial disaster, we have a new flag.  Whip dee do.

On a rather sketchy legal basis, the leaders have told the European Commission to meet on Sunday and draw up plans for a “mechanism to preserve financial stability in Europe”.  The body that met today has no legal status, though Mr Sarkozy kept talking about “the council of the eurozone”, which I have never heard of before. When the European Commission has finished drafting proposals for this secret weapon on Sunday morning, it will be approved by the finance ministers of the EU’s 27 member countries on Sunday afternoon, and the new mechanism will be in force on Monday morning, in time for market opening, Mr Sarkozy said.  http://www.economist.com/blogs/charlemagne/2010/05/euro_crisis_0

Funny thing is, President Nicolas Sarkozy is not in anyway a leader of this group.  Ahh the limelight. 

The only other name change I can recall for a group of member states is when President Bush and subsequently President Obama, refer to the U.S. as The Homeland. 

The Homeland term is derived from and equivalent to the German Nazi term “der Fatherland”. Der Fatherland was used by Hitler to impassion Germans with patriotism, diverting their attention from laws, legislation and programs authorizing genocide and ethnic cleansing. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=homeland.

Does the Patriot Act ring any bells in diverting law?

North American Union Logo

When the North American Union Logo shows up on a Flag in America you’ll know we are destined to see the end of U.S. Currency and sovereignty.  It sounds just like what has happened to the countries of the Eurozone.

Just when you think you’ve heard it all in the election cycle, comes along more fuel to the fire with columnist, Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post blathering on why the Republicans lost this year’s election, and it’s all God’s fault.  She writes at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/18/AR2008111802886.html 

“Three little letters, great big problem: G-O-D. I’m bathing in holy water as I type. To be more specific, the evangelical, right-wing, oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is what ails the erstwhile conservative party and will continue to afflict and marginalize its constituents if reckoning doesn’t soon cometh.  Simply put: Armband religion is killing the Republican Party.”

People have legitimate positions on all sides of these issues and we don’t have to agree with all of them, but a description of the oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is rather offensive. Socially conservative positions may not be the popular vote, but to suggest that a whole group of people leave their values behind is ludicrous.  Religion is very personal thing, but not necessarily private.  The gorilla she professes as a God problem is really the abortion issue. Obama made clear his support for the policy of federal funding and with regard to his personal life, saying that if his daughter’s made a mistake, he wouldn’t want them punished for the rest of their lives.  Did Obama learn this from Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church, The Koran, The Bible?

History will tell us of the consequence of voting for Obama and his selection of pro-abortion former U.S. senator Tom Daschle of South Dakota as his Health and Human Services Secretary. His announcement came on The Feast Day of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, the patroness of Catholic hospitals.  It strikes me that proposition 8 in California, was defeated by the those same socially conservative voters that elected Obama.

In his homily before the election November 3, 2008,  Most Reverend Robert W. Finn
Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph http://whitearoundthecollar.blogspot.com/ wrote in part , ” In a country where we have made choice an absolute, we must remember that underlying every choice is a value; that flowing from every choice is a consequence; that we must give an accounting to God for what we decide.” 

“The recent election was principally decided out of concern for the economy, for the loss of jobs and homes and financial security for families, here and around the world. If the election is misinterpreted ideologically as a referendum on abortion, the unity desired by President-elect Obama and all Americans at this moment of crisis will be impossible to achieve,” said, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), voiced hope for the Obama Administration but pointed to possible obstacles to our desired unity. http://www.usccb.org/comm/archives/2008/08-174.shtml

Pope Benedict XVI delivered this message at the general audience in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican City on November 12, 2008, “Our life in this world, marked by trials and tribulations, must be inspired by the hope of heaven and the expectation of our resurrection to glory.”  http://zenit.org/article-24235?l=english 

If the abandonment of God and his public followers is the way to garner votes for the GOP, it is a sad reflection on our society.    Whether one defines themselves as Catholic, Protestant, Lutheran, Mormon, Muslim, Orthodox, Baptist or as she refers to the Evangelicals, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangelicalism we should define ourselves in theocracy with the love of God and country and if that means wearing an armband for unborn children, then so be it.

“So while insulting G-O-D, she also insulted people like me. Like you. People who insist on infusing their faith into their politics. And that’s okay; I’d rather be in the oogedy-boogedy section of Heaven (God willing), than in the hoity-toity room of hell, where’s there possibly very little elbow room.”  http://actsoftheapostasy.blogspot.com/2008/11/rise-up-ye-oogedy-boogedy-of-god.html

“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but to lose his soul?”  

God Bless America.

According to the NY Times, Obama is expected to announce in the next few days that he raised more than $100 million in September, a figure that would shatter fund-raising records!  Read that again, he raised $100 million is September.  September alone!

So much for our economy being in the crapper, eh?

Barrack Hussein Obama raised $100 million dollars in donations during the same time Bernanke and Bush preached about how to halt the mortgage lending crisis, and  that led to how to spend the $700 Billion dollars and reform regulatory issues.  The American public hears about how Democrats and Republicans up on Capitol Hill are coming together to work in every one’s best interest.  In a bipartisan effort, our government is trying to help support those hit the hardest in the housing slump and mortgage meltdown–to the tune of, you got it, $100 million.  Only $100 million?  

The Washington Post reports http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/02/AR2008040202293.html?nav=rss_politics   that ” Families who cannot afford to repay their home loans — the group at the heart of the mortgage meltdown — would benefit mainly from $100 million to expand foreclosure counseling services and greater latitude for local housing authorities to use tax-exempt bonds in refinancing sub-prime loans.”  You got it, Counseling.  A good talking to, to remind you to never borrow more than you can afford.  COUNSELING!

http://www.hud.gov/news/releases/pr07-144a.pdf   lists national, regional, state, and local housing counseling grantees for fiscal year 2007–all of whom presumably were in operation when sub-prime borrowers got into this current economic fiasco.  The office of HUD- Housing Urban Development provides funds for counseling, groups like, ACORN, La Raza, AARP and hundreds of others.  Isn’t that special?  ACORN?  Yep, the same ACORN that registers Mickey Mouse in an election year.  The same ACORN partly responsible for making “liar loans” .

So maybe the job of congress isn’t to bailout people who took loans they knew they could never afford in the first place but if this bill was supposed to help people stay in their homes it missed by a long shot.  The next bipartisan bill had better provide counseling for the of thousands of people who are about to be homeless.  Earmarking $100 million is like flea on a camel’s ass. 

http://www.fec.gov/pages/brochures/contriblimits.shtml outlines how much money an individual can contribute to a candidate.  In the case of individual donations, the amount is set at $2300.  Seems a lot of folks have money to spare and donate to a candidate while people are loosing their homes and seeing their money disappear before their eyes in the stock market.

Open Secrets http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/select.php?ind=F07 lists more than $10 million dollars in contributions from the securities industry going to Obama.  To all federal candidates for president and Congress, and to political parties, the securities and investment industries have contributed more than $101 million in the 2008 election cycle, 56 percent of it to Democrats.  Check it out! 

Goldman Sachs $739,521
University of California $697,506
Harvard University $501,489
Citigroup Inc $492,548
Google Inc $487,355
JPMorgan Chase & Co $475,112
National Amusements Inc $432,169
Microsoft Corp $429,656
UBS AG $419,550
Lehman Brothers $391,774
Wilmerhale Llp $383,024
Time Warner $375,063
Sidley Austin LLP $370,916
Skadden, Arps et al $360,409
Stanford University $341,399
Morgan Stanley $341,380
Latham & Watkins $328,879
Jones Day $309,960
University of Chicago $294,237
General Electric $290,584

This table lists the top donors to this candidate in the 2008 election cycle. The organizations themselves did not donate , rather the money came from the organization’s PAC, its individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals’ immediate families.   The money is bundled together to indicate contributions can come from the organization’s members or employees (and their families). The organization may support one candidate, or hedge its bets by supporting multiple candidates. 

http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/index.php?cycle=2008&type=CD shows Obama having 80 million dollars more in cash on hand while McCain has less than half that.  If you think you’ve heard everything Obama has to say, you are wrong.  He is going to spend that $80 million every imaginable way to get your vote, including the purchasing prime time network TV so he can continue to spew his platform of change.  I hope he tells us why in this crappy economy he has a better solution than providing $100 million for counselling to help people stay in their homes.  Oh that’s right, we already know Obama’s solution to economic crisis–  he’s going to spread the wealth of Joe the Plumber and everyone like him to fix it all.  Shame, shame on Obama and Congress too in appropriating our tax dollars for Counseling.

Fasten your seat belts and stay in the upright and seated position, it’s going to be a rocky ride.

  As seeb on Fox News.

Obama was talking to a plumber in a neighborhood, the man asked “why do want to raise my taxes? … Obama said he needed to “spread” the wealth…..

Can you spell S O C I A L I S T?  It won’t just be that plumber whose going to be bending over at work.

Tell me just why would anyone want to get back into the stock market with a Socialistic, Marxist statement like that?  So much for hard work, Obama is going to spread the wealth around for all of us.  Oh goody, where do I stand in line?  Oh that’s right- the line for the bathroom is going to be long because all the plumber’s will no longer have any incentive to work to fix the plumbing since Obama is going to be taking more of their money. 

Say goodbye to the American Dream if Obama Gets elected, we’re going to be standing in a lot of shit.

October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980 was the life of John Lennon.  Today was his birthday.  If he were alive today, surely he’d have some satirical commentary on our Presidential Elections, the Stock Market fiasco, etc.  A few pertinent inspirational statements for today’s hot button subjects previously quoted from Lennon in conversation or song, might include something like these—

On Lennon’s own Death:  “Guilt for being rich, and guilt thinking that perhaps love and peace isn’t enough and you have to go and get shot or something. ”

On Sarah Palin: “As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.”

On Society:  “Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives.  I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.”

On Conspiracies like 9-11 & UFO’s:  “The more I see the less I know for sure.”

On Drowning in Debt:  “When you’re drowning, you don’t say ‘I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,’ you just scream.”

On Social Security:  “The older generation are leading this country to galloping ruin!”

On Home Foreclosure:  “Possession isn’t nine-tenths of the law. It’s nine-tenths of the problem.”

On Education Reform:  “There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.”

On Religion:  “You’re just left with yourself all the time, whatever you do anyway. You’ve got to get down to your own God in your own temple. It’s all down to you, mate.

The War on Terrorism;   When I hold you in my arms and I feel my finger on your trigger I know no one can do me no harm because happiness is a warm gun. “

On The Stock Market & Economy:  ” I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love. ”

On John McCain:  “Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.”

On Obama:   ” I get by with a little help from my friends ”

On Bush:  “…you know it ain’t easy.  You know how hard it can be.  The way things are going, they’re going to crucify me.:

On Dick Chaney:  “There’s room at the top, I’m telling you still but first you must learn how to smile as you kill if you want to be like the folks on the hill.”On President Bill Clinton:  “Whatever gets you through the night.  It’s alright.  It’s alright.”

On Hillary Clinton:  “I am going into an unknown future, but I’m still all here, and still while there’s life, there’s hope. “

On Darfur:  “All we are saying is give peace a chance.”

On Global Warming: “We are all water from different rivers, That’s why it’s so easy to meet. We are all in this vast, vast ocean.  Someday we’ll evaporate together.” 

On The Paparazzi:  “Newspaper people have a habit of putting you in the front pages to sell their papers, and then after they’ve sold their papers and got big circulation’s, they say, ‘Look at what we’ve done for you.'” On Elvis:  “Everybody loves you when you’re six foot in the ground.”

On Brittany Spears:  “”Nobody controls me, I’m uncontrollable.” 

http://www.lennonmurdertruth.com/ is a web site that believes that the murder of John Lennon was orchestrated and premeditated somehow with government authority.   The site states, “Contrary to all reports about a lone drifter named Mark David Chapman who allegedly shot John Lennon in the back December 8, 1980 you’ll find ample evidence in the back issues of Time, Newsweek, and US News and World Reportmagazines to suggest otherwise. Namely, that John Lennon was, not only politically assassinated, but that Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and, you’d better sit down, horror novelist Stephen King are the three people who can be proven guilty of the crime. King being the real murderer and Chapman but a look-alike, paid actor misleading you with an absolute hoax, the media in tow.” 

Steven King?  The author goes on to say that ,” I feel like I’m talking to a bootlicking, phony moron.
As if the media never told them a big, fat lie in their life; as if the media was trustworthy.
As if the assassinations of the 60’s didn’t teach us that our govt. is afraid of anyone who
actually wants to implement America’s freedoms, documents, rights and philosophies.
As if the majority of Americans don’t think that those assassinations were coverups. You
cowards cringe from the latest book about R.F.K.’s murder that exposes 12 bullet wounds.
You persist in keeping your heads down and your mouths shut while you set up the next list
of martyrs who want to make the world a better place.” 

If your really interested -you’re invited to protest with Steve Lightfoot, author of the website “Who really killed John Lennon, this Oct. 9, John Lennon’s birthday, at ABCTV’s Bldg. at W.67th and Columbus Ave., N.Y.N.Y., all day, from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. 

At http://www.whale.to/b/lenn.html claims are made that “CIA director, Tavistock underling and then vice-president George Bush Sr. had Lennon slaughtered on the streets of New York utilizing yet another mind-controlled Delta slave Mark David Chapman. Mark Chapman is the victim of an artificially induced model psychosis.” 

Wierd thing is, that in all thisconspiracy jumbo, that both John Hinckley and Mark David Chapman were each carrying on their person a paperback copy of the JD Salinger novel, Catcher in the Rye.  Reportedly,  Salinger had ties to the US intelligence community, especially the CIA.

I never read the book and don’t know much except, today was his birthday and John Lennon is dead.

Yawn.  What a bunch of posturing bullcrap from the both of them.  This one and “that one” as McCain called Obama, are nincompoops in figuring out how to win, er,-make that earn votes.  Not that they are both not reasonably well educated men and serve as elected officials but neither one can give a straight answers.  A yes or no would suffice just one in awhile.  I am not McCains “friend” as he  mentioned in just about every response.  I don’t need another friend, I need a candidate that doesn’t sell his point as if he is at a campaign rally speech.  Obama, poised as always wins on fluency in his delivery but gets an F for spewing just as much rhetoric as McCain.  Budget freezes, taxes, jobs, the economy, blah, blah.  The name dropping didn’t help either one of them either.  A boring format with the same boring old answers.  And, what the hell is CNN doing with that stupid chart at the bottom of the screen and why is there a 5 second delay in the speech from NBC to CNN?  Lots of whys-  Like why did these two make it this far.  Is this the best America had to offer?

The Fed dropped rates again today.  Hold on to your shirts tails…..
