    a place in a national paper to spout it Wow The ruling elite know how to pick their puppets Oh I forgot he s not just a puppet he s a sage profit and visionary too with maps of the future laid out for us hard of thinking folks to follow In other words come what may there will be work and you will be able to service your mortgage Do all this and the economy will stabilise next year Get connected Google reality info dot org Peace Posted in CreditCrunch economy RullingClass Tagged Prinitng Money Leave a comment Stop the bus I want off Posted on March 7 2009 by nacnud This week has seen the following three momentous and I use that word sincerely events in the world of finance capital and capitalism in general 1 AIG were bailed out again to the tune of 30bn 2 The UK government cut the interest rates to 0 5 their lowest since records began 3 The UK government has decided to print money the last time that was seen was in Japan 10 years ago and before that in Germany between the great wars Let us start at the top The crisis stricken insurance company AIG has crashed 61 7bn 43bn into the red with the biggest corporate loss in US history after being crippled by policies protecting troubled banks against default on loans and derivatives In a renewed effort to prevent AIG from collapsing the US government yesterday provided it with access to 30bn of emergency aid This takes the amount of taxpayers funds advanced to AIG to more than 150bn Guardian Online Did you read those figures AIG is a central structure in capitalism and in essence it supports all of the other entities that float around it as it provides payment insurance If AIG were allowed to fail by the ruling class governments we d all be in food queues tomorrow and the govs who like to control us would have chaos on their hands It s not scare mongering to say that there would be carnage So they save it With tax payers money to the tune of 150 000 000 000 Nice little game if you can be in on it Tax payer s money is given to the ruling class to bail out the wee game they ve been playing and we ve been supporting for all these years A game that has been shown to be lack by both its own terms profit generation and any kind of moralistic measure right thinking humans would care to measure it by We will suffer the most We the people who do not own the means of production or have any way to feed ourselves other than sell our labour to the market a market that has so obviously failed even in it s own terms profit generation Maybe we can be thankful that the gov and ruling class are trying to save this system that brings us cyclical down turns and wars as at least we ll be okay The media economists have been saying openly that we are in new territory here and there is no telling if anything they do can fix capitalism People who do theoretical analysis as opposed to just appearance analysis of capitalism will tell you that there are inner contradictions in the system that will have to manifest themselves as a collapse of the system Whether we are seeing this process in front of our eyes or not just now we can surely come up with a better system of commodity production I mean is this the only way we can envisage food cars beer wine shoes clothes and all other commodities flowing into and around our lives The central issues within capitalism remain the same now as the did last year and the year before that A Antagonistic competition exists between monolithic and now tax payer supported entities that are there for only one reason B Profit is the only reason that any commodity gets produced The profit motive is put beyond any kind of human factor always Take a simple consequence of B mad cow disease Commercial feeds for most farm animals contained meat and bone meal Cows which are natural herbivores were being fed parts of other dead cows Their feed also included the ground and cooked left overs of the slaughtering process gleaned from other animals The carcasses of sick and injured animals such as pigs and chickens were being used as a protein supplement Times On Line Now you or I looking logically at things would never ever decide to feed meat to a herbivore would we It s insanity However in the world of profit generation it is sanity if the profit that can be turned is more than if the process was not carried out So it gets done Not one human ounce of thought in there Your kids could tell me that it sounds like a bad idea This is not rocket science Are you seeing how this system at any level you care to analyse it is not actually set up for you You are not even an after thought Profit is central and it brings you the chaos you see around you and the pain you are about to experience as profit is no longer able to be generated Let us now lump points 2 and 3 way above together we have the lowest interest rates since records began and the gov has decided to print money These two facts are so earth shatteringly important to your life but you may not realise it right now You see this system works on lead times Right now looking around aside from the house prices crashing and some people being made unemployed the world looks kind of normal and stable The Bank of England yesterday announced unprecedented steps to prevent the deepest slump since the 1930s when it unveiled plans to inject up to 75bn into the economy over the next three months after its monetary policy committee cut the bank rate for the sixth time since the global financial system came close to collapse last October The rate is now 0 5 a level not seen before in the Bank s 315 year history Guardian Online What you have to bear in mind here is that these steps currently are aiming to restore order to the system that brought us here in the first place We re in free fall just now without a parachute We re just trying to get ourselves back up 1000 feet but the ground is till looming The last time money was printed was in Japan and they did it to try and end a 10 year recession in profits Note it was not done to get food in peoples mouths or to get homes built but it was done to end the recession in profits It is not akin to the situation in Germany in 1923 or currently in Zimbabwe as the money that is being printed is being given to guess wait for it the ruling class banks and financial institutions Maybe the gov feels that the tax payer has paid enough to these institutions so they ll use some ink instead Either way economists are hailing this as a break through and a bold move and one that is needed however that is all just guess work as the system has never ever been in this situation before The closest thing we have to it is 1930 s and then we needed a global war to get out of it War again a construct of the ruling class elite Let s play devils advocate here for a bit even if all of these measures actually work and save the system from itself is this a system that you really want Do you want to have to face the fear of job loss on a cyclical basis Do you want pollution on your planet that is killing your kids Do you want to see humans blown up on battle fields for the sake of profit Think Gaza re generation build bomb build taxes flow from folks to large businesses as per I am not suggesting Gaza should not be re built here I m suggesting we demand that the elites stop getting us to blow things up in the first place In summary this system stands on the edge of a location that it s never found itself in before Given that the system has no though for human need and only profit I would argue strongly that right now we as humans have never had a better time to utilise all of our previous creations towards building a future that is human focused For a detailed break down of the current system see www

published in Observer 1 03 09 Original article by Andrew Rawnsley Assuming it is out of the question to hang draw and quarter Sir Fred Goodwin pluck out his intestines while they are still warm and wriggling stuff them into his greedy mouth and then display his severed head on a spike at the Tower of London could we settle for shooting him instead How easy it is to point the blame elsewhere To think that its all bankers or politicians who have done wrong here Its so easy to turn a blind eye to the real culprits Us Without question we partake in this system Without question we prop it up Without question we buy their instruments of finance Without question we buy their products Without question we support a system that is based on profit not human need By its own measure of success the generation of profit the current system capitalism has failed It does not judge itself on how many humans had a smile on their face or how few wars it started or how many it started it is defined by how much profit it can generate So you can look for scapegoats and burn a few folks at the stake but when all is said and done this world will be as in humane as ever until we all choose to do it a different way We have the technology now lets build a solution Posted in CreditCrunch economy 1 Comment Lloyds heading for 75 state ownership Posted on March 3 2009 by nacnud Published in the Guardian 27 02 09 Comment by Nacnud posted on Guardian site I hope the irony in this sentence is not so heavy that it drags the characters off the bottom of your monitor I m so glad were bailing another bank out In a system that is not designed for humans in any way yet we as humans are propping it up by our tax pounds The status quo brought us to here yet we think that by supporting the here we can get back to the status quo which was just a step before here It makes no sense to support a system that is so anti human anti you When theres no profit to be made it makes people redundant not meaning that theres no work to be done just that theres no money in doing the work We don t have enough money to build a hospital I ve only ever seen humans build hospitals Weve enough money to go to war Again humans do the fighting People before profit is a must Supporting this system or asking for your jobs back asking to be exploited under this system is not in your best interest Nothing about this system is set up for you Nothing Your taxes are given to the ruling class and the elite Your lives are given to the ruling class and the elite time is money you re having the time of your lives You are being taken from all angles can you see a different way Its really really really easy Or carry on as we are head towards food queues and mass unemployment and civil unrest Have it your way Future Its time to make a move Its time to improve We all have it in us To bring our lives back So therell be less of this Im alright Jack Youre not alright And nor am I Its only that bloke Up there on high Although for him the end is nigh For we should set our sights high Aim for humanity Ditch this profanity Grasp what can be ours As One Take this world this very hour As One As One race of people Who can be free To laugh and love Joyfully Take it its OURS Peace Posted in economy Leave a comment Toxic asset deal yet to be agreed Lloyds says Posted on February 27 2009 by nacnud Headline Toxic asset deal yet to be agreed Lloyds says Full Article Guardian Whenever economic conditions do begin to normalise however we believe we will be in a very strong position to reap the benefits Sir Victor Blank Lloyds TSB Chairman It s comforting to know that when normality returns they ll be able to generate huge profits Let me get this straight did they not have normality before this crash So if they couldn t make it work then why should we believe that they can make it work if and when normality returns As the Chairman of a large bank you would at least expect that Sir Blank would be able to speak something other than complete nonsense It seems that he can t though And we as UK tax payers are going to bail out his bank buy the bad debt and leave the profit in private ownership i e his hands The hands of a man who can t even think straight Wow Time to get some Reality Info down our throats I think Waken up and smell the coffee Get connected and choose another way Peace Posted in

http www guardian co uk commentisfree 2009 feb 13 gordon brown financial crisis you say But it would then say something Brown never allows that responsibility for the banking crash is systemic and must be shared including by Britain and including in their place by politicians Are you really still looking for scapegoats It is all somehow their fault and not yours Not mine Not your mother s Not your brother s Not your sister s Not your wife s Not in short ours You really have to get a grip man a systemic fault is our fault We have done this to us Humanity has been choosing to produce in the way that it is producing And now even if the system is defined and graded by its own morals and ambitions it has failed No more profit is what is flowing from the cogs of industry The free market has collapsed We have a state run banking system almost and how much longer will it even pretend to be otherwise Your money my money your family s money pumped into support a system that has failed humanity and all you can think about is that someone else is responsible Maybe it s time you woke up and realised you re to blame we re to blame The up side of that is that we re the cure too Spread

police Posted on February 24 2009 by nacnud Headline Britain faces summer of rage police Original Articale Guardian Superintendent David Hartshorn who heads the Metropolitan police s public order branch told the Guardian that middle class individuals who would never have considered joining demonstrations may now seek to vent their anger through protests this year Well this author for one hopes that humans that are caught up in the collapse of this system understand that to argue for this system to either return or be angry at its demise is only counter to their lives Focusing on a productive solution is the way to guarantee anyone s long term survival If the recently unemployed get angry and disruptive there is more reason and justification for the ruling class to come down heavy on them and even kill them Marches yeah protests yeah but it is sheer folly to embark on a road of violence in any way Police were said to have been heavy handed at Greek solidarity marches in London in December and last month at protests against Israel s invasion of Gaza In August 1 000 officers helicopters and riot horses were drafted to Kent from 26 UK police forces to oversee the climate camp demonstration against the Kingsnorth power station The massive operation to monitor the protesters cost 5 9m and resulted in 100 arrests But in December the government was forced to apologise to parliament after the Guardian revealed that its claims that 70 officers had been hurt in violent clashes were wrong So we know they are capable of lies and manipulation We could extrapolate that they may even want to set heavy handed warnings down to those that step out of line I would urge understanding and discussion as well as totally peaceful protest at all times And never ever argue for the return of this system just look around you And take this as a warning A particularly worrying development was the re emergence of individuals involved in
