As the US goes bankrupt trying to control angry Islamic militants, we have to talk, yet again, about racism, ethnic cleansing and religious bigotry.  The Russian government, like the US, is allowing extremist Islamic rule in once-liberal places like Chechnya and Iraq.  For example, women under Saddam had much greater civil rights than under the US puppet regimes.  Israel is increasing ‘settlers’ on the West Bank while shooting Palestinian farmers dead.  And the racism conference in Durban is being boycotted by our Black President at the behest of racist, ethnic identity Jews.

The Economic Cost of War in Iraq and Afghanistan –


President Obama’s soaring speech on Friday announcing the drawdown and eventual pullout of troops from Iraq, framed by martial music and the cheering of an audience of Marines when he gave the timetable, could not help but be seen partly in an economic frame of reference: The war has cost an estimated $860 billion; Mr. Obama, as a candidate last year, repeatedly criticized such spending overseas during a downturn; and he had just unveiled his 10-year budget plan the day before.

The Iraq war has been criticized on many fronts, including whether it has really made the world safer for the United States. But with the economy in crisis, some of the sharpest doubts being expressed about it concern whether the money it siphoned from the Treasury helped set the terms for that crisis.

At the same time, history suggests that anticipation of an end to the war might help lift the mood of consumers and investors whose fears now deepen the economic problem.


We are going bankrupt.  We can’t afford these wars. Our military is sheltered from reality since they spend money that is created overseas, not at home.  In other words, now that the Chinese and Japanese are not buying half a trillion in Treasuries every year, our government is using the offshore pirate coves to have them ‘buy’ our Treasuries when they are simply holding them offshore so the government can claim, these won’t cause inflation since they are ‘offshore’ when the entities holding this debt are the same ones the government is bailing out…by creating more Treasuries!  


This is insane.  We can’t fund debts with debts forever.  And we can’t fund a money-losing empire forever, either.  And the patience of radical Islamic warriors are greater than our ability to take on more debts to suppress popular uprisings in Muslim lands.  Obama has no intention of stopping these futile wars.  He has the full support of AIPAC and the Jewish community in America to keep on spending our future tax revenues on futile wars.


If the US Jewish community is against these wars, then AIPAC should be against these wars.  But AIPAC and liberal Jews in New York State are backing these wars for a variety of reasons.  The same reasons born-again Christians back these wars!  The axis of evil as far as I am concerned, is this coalition in the US of two religious groups, one a small but powerful minority religion and the other, a massive and equally powerful majority religious group are on a road to a future collision because the goals of both do not make a perfect match at all.


The Jewish minority has been able to wield great influence due to this misalliance.  But the goal of the Jews is to genetically isolate themselves from other humans while the Christian religious fanatics view the Jews as a tool for the End of Times, aka, the Apocalypse, or WWIII.  The plan is for no Jews to survive this true future Holocaust.  


People accuse me of ‘anti-semitism’ because I see the danger of the Jewish community using racism as a religion.  Either they have to accept that religious beliefs shouldn’t be inherited or they will be increasingly isolated, as a community.  If they choose this racist isolation, they will be doomed to a hell of their own making as they fight to drive away or control everyone and everything on earth, so they can be isolated, yet in control of things.


THIS IS IDENTICAL TO THE NORMANS!  The ruling elites of Europe refused to allow ‘out-marriages’ and married only each other.  Like in the Jewish community or the Japanese royals, this inbreeding created many genetic diseases as genetic flaws increase in ferocity as recessive genes accumulate inside a small pool.  All life forms are stronger if they have more genetic freedom.


This is why humans breeding dogs or horses or plants breed in mutations that can only be expressed by inbreeding which leads to undesirable mutations.  The collapse of the German royals who ended up on the thrones of Italy, Spain, England, France and Russia was expressed by repeated revolutions which usually dealt with the problem of this ancient inbred megafamily by chopping their heads off or shooting them dead.  Even so, the last representatives still sit on thrones!


They are now forced to marry outside of the tiny pool of eligible royals and this is saving them from even worse genetic problems!  The Jewish community is the opposite of the ruling elites: unlike them, increasingly protected from danger after the Middle Ages, no longer riding into battle, the genetic downspiral increased rapidly in the Norman/German royal circuits.  But the Jews were treated to the reverse: due to cruel persecutions by Christians, the Jews who survived were the smart ones, not the physically strong ones.


Today, the Jewish community feels it must be like the royals of Europe: protected from the masses while at the same time, running many cruel colonialist wars against barely armed natives.  Like the royals of Europe, this program will boomerang badly.  Due to a collapse of the birthrate in Europe, Muslims are slowly replacing the ‘native’ population.  At the same time, the Jews in America and Europe are fighting a rearguard action, passing laws which forbid any discussion of history or religion that might irritate ANYONE at all.  


This way, Europeans are trapped in a system where they can’t even mention obvious things for fear of being put in jail.  This has put a stop to open talk about anything important but has the side effect of allowing things to fester below the surface where it will burst out into the open when new revolutions sweep Europe as they shall, inevitably.


Chechen leader imposes strict brand of Islam | Antiwar Newswire

The bullnecked president of Chechnya emerged from afternoon prayers at the mosque and with chilling composure explained why seven young women who had been shot in the head deserved to die.


Ramzan Kadyrov said the women, whose bodies were found dumped by the roadside, had “loose morals” and were rightfully shot by male relatives in honor killings.

“If a woman runs around and if a man runs around with her, both of them are killed,” Kadyrov told journalists in the capital of this Russian republic.

The 32-year-old former militia leader is carrying out a campaign to impose Islamic values and strengthen the traditional customs of predominantly Muslim Chechnya, in an effort to blunt the appeal of hardline Islamic separatists and shore up his power. In doing so, critics say, he is setting up a dictatorship where Russian laws do not apply.

Some in Russia say Kadyrov’s attempt to create an Islamic society violates the Russian constitution, which guarantees equal rights for women and a separation of church and state. But the Kremlin has given him its staunch backing, seeing him as the key to keeping the separatists in check, and that has allowed him to impose his will.


Some readers want me to condemn Muslims.  Well, religious fanatics worshipping death gods are scary!  I, personally, think that most religions are unfortunate.  There seems to be this strange desire inside of our brains that compels us to think in this way, namely, a desire to have control over our sexual affairs, our thinking about nature and our relations with each other.  


I am all for sane rules but most of the rules that this dark inner gods seems the most fixated on are cruel or capricious in the extreme.  Religions do not spread love and peace. They are extremely war-like and even outright violent.  Even when they profess to being ‘peaceful.’  Totalitarian rulers tap into this strange part of our brains which is why they love being elevated into gods and have giant statues like the ones made 6,000+ years ago in ancient Egypt or the earliest city-states in the Mesopotamian valley.


Israel planning mass expansion of West Bank settlement bloc – Haaretz – Israel News

Despite the state’s formal commitment not to expand West Bank settlements, a government agency has been promoting plans over the past two years to construct thousands of housing units east of the Green Line, Haaretz has learned. 

The plans, which have not yet been approved by the government, were drawn up by the Civil Administration, the government agency responsible for nonmilitary matters in the West Bank. Details of the plans appear in the minutes of the agency’s environmental subcommittee, which were obtained by the B’Tselem organization under the Freedom of Information Act. 

There is this tiny minority of honest, caring Jewish activists who defy most of the Tribe by forcing truth telling, resisting the ethnic cleansing actions and in general, striving to create a non-biased  religious world like the one our Founding Fathers wished for: all religions to be separated from the State.  This way, we have freedom of thought which is the wellspring of all science and technology.


Philosophical freedom is the cornerstone of civilization.  True, we can have cities with no freedom of thought but a city can’t be civilized unless it also has free thinking.  For example, ancient Rome went from being a forum for debate to a vile dictatorship of the God-Emperors.  Anyone who didn’t believe the increasingly insane rulers were not gods were killed or persecuted like the early Christians and of course, the Jews.  The art of thinking went into steep decline.  People ceased writing books or histories due to naked fear.


The Jewish desire to eat up all the West Bank and lock the natives into increasingly tight ghettoes while the Jews go about, arrogant and cruel, is destroying JUDAISM.  It is wrecking thousands of years of intense intellectual thinking and crushing it into a caricature of itself.  The need to deny the crimes of commission is driving the entire Jewish community off of a communal cliff.  If pointing this out is evil, then I am evil incarnate.  


The US is bankrolling these crimes.  The US endorses and protects this.  We see in Russia, the government giving up on secularism.  This is a two-edged sword.  The Russians who are Orthodox Christians will see their own system ‘revive’ and this is another step backwards.  There is a race against secularism due to authoritarian god-emperors suppressing religions while trying to replace them with overt human-worship. 


To keep the religious house of the soul clean, one must have it separated from the civic state and instead of imposing it on society, if one lives truly religious lives, one can share the world stage with all other belief systems since humans are contrary creatures and thus, love to create even small variations that separate their own ego from the ego next door.  This is why, in triumph, all religions end up battling ‘apostasy’.  


Sniping at the elderly in Khoza’a :: 


For 2 months, Walid Abu Arjela and his family haven’t dared to return to their land in Am Almad of Khoza’a village, east of Khan Younis, in the lethal Israeli-imposed “buffer zone”. The land in question, 550 m from the Green Line border, used to be productive agricultural land, as with most of the land now confiscated by the Israeli military occupation of Gaza and the imposition of a “no-go zone” on the Palestinian side of the Green Line. And as with the fertile land of the “buffer zone” from south to north, the land was heavily worked and produced vegetables, grains and fruits for much of the Gaza Strip’s residents and even, before the siege, for export.


YouTube – Israeli Occupation Forces Fire on Farmers and Internationals

YouTube – Israeli Military Shoot Gaza Farmer

The Jews who are invading Palestinian lands are extremely cruel.  This cruelty is justified by their belief that god loves only them and there is only one god.  This stunningly cruel religious fantasy is not all that uncommon.  Many tribes believe that they are the People and others are sub-human.  This is a common human brain business we evolved with and explains why humans don’t get along very well at all except when forced to by circumstance.


Getting beyond this is important for our survival as a species.  The Jews who first invaded Palestine around WWI wanted to make believe that they ‘made the desert bloom’ and thus, were better stewards of the Lands.  So they imported European farming methods into the desiccated lands of Palestine.  To prove they are better farmers, the Jewish invaders torment the natives, ruin their crops, uproot olive trees, etc.  Now, they are simply shooting dead, anyone who tries to farm.  They do this on the West Bank, too.


AFP: Israel applauds US boycott of UN racism conference


Israel on Saturday applauded Washington’s decision to boycott a UN conference on racism that it considers anti-Semitic.

“Under the fig leaf of combatting racism, this conference is blatantly anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli,” Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said.

“The decision of the United States should be an example to other countries that share our values,” she added in a statement from her office


Judaism, as it is now practiced, is very racist.  Israel is a racist state.  Anti-semitism is also very racist.  Just as anti-African beliefs are racist. Our President should talk about that…to the Jews. Explain in simple terms, how racism operates and how they are guilty of it just as much as the KKK.


EJP | News | France | European rabbis to discuss assimilation, ‘greatest threat to the Jews’



PARIS (EJP)—Around 300 rabbis from across Europe and Israel will attend a 3-day conference in Paris to discuss assimilation, anti-Semitism and various other issues.

The conference, organized by the Rabbinical Centre of Europe (RCE) will open on Monday in the French capital in the presence of the two chief rabbis of Israel, Rabbi Shlomo Amar and Rabbi Yona Metzger.

The RCE is an organization dedicated to assisting more than 600 rabbis as well as Jewish communities across Europe.

Many rabbis told the RCE that there is large scale of assimilation amongst parts of European Jewry and that many communities are “disappearing” as a result.

“The RCE leadership believes that assimilation is the greatest threat to the Jews of Europe, even greater than anti-Semitism and terrorism. Only a return to Jewish ily values in a modern context will stem the flow,” the group said.


EJP | News | Jewish groups condemn Vatican prelate for comparing Gaza with concentration camp


BRUSSELS/NEW YORK (EJP)—Two Jewish organizations have condemned a statement made by a senior Vatican official comparing Gaza  to a Nazi concentration camp.

Cardinal Renato Martino, a former Vatican envoy to the United Nations who is currently the Pope’s top official on issues of justice and peace, was quoted by the Italian media as saying the conditions in Gaza “look more and more like a big concentration camp.”
The Brussels-based Rabbinical Centre of Europe (RCE), a leading rabbinical organization in Europe and the highest Jewish authority in the continent, representing over 700 rabbis of Jewish communities all over Europe, called the prelate’s comparison “totally injustified and fundamentally wrong.”…
In New York, the Anti-Defamation League, a leading Jewish organization in the fight against anti-Semitism in the world, condemned the prelate’s statement  as “shocking and disgraceful.”
“It is shocking and disgraceful that a high-level Vatican official would employ Holocaust imagery in reference to the state of Israel’s attempt to defend its citizens from Hamas,” said Abraham H. Foxman, the ADL’s national director and a Holocaust survivor. 
“We hope that the Vatican will publicly repudiate Cardinal Martino’s statements and make clear that comparisons between the absolute tyranny of the Nazi Holocaust and the complex situation in Gaza are inappropriate and offensive.

The two stories above make it clear: Israel is making the Jews more racist, not less racist.  So, ASSIMILATION is worse than ‘anti-semitism’???  Wow.  Worse than ‘terrorism’?  The above videos show European observers yelling at murderous Jews to stop shooting unarmed Palestinian farmers!  Isn’t this all about Jewish crimes?


The real crime is, NOT ONE of these many videos of Jewish crimes makes the US or even European TV news shows.  It is kept invisible.  This is utterly wretched.  It helps the Jewish bigots commit more crimes and have  more freedom to terrorize.  And this will backfire!  Already, the world is getting fed up with Jews being allowed to commit crimes while these same people will demand no religious controls in countries Jews inhabit outside of Israel!


They can’t have a hyper-right-wing religious bigot racist society be legalized in Israel and not anywhere else on earth! Quite the opposite!  The more they justify their crimes, the more others will do likewise.


The story about Chechnya is about Israel: the religious right wing there also wants to kill women for ‘consorting’ with the wrong people!  There is no liberal secular forces at work there, anymore.  Only increasingly fascist forces.

  1. roger

    Thanks, Elaine for all your work and effort. I certainly find it immensely valuable 🙂 As I say to my friends and family as I encourage them to read your blog: her analysis is breathtaking in its scope and depth

  2. JT

    This video is a part of a program that just aired here in scandinavia on 5th of February. Check out the part that the schoolgirl videotaped (from 6 minutes onwards).
    Israel soldiers shoot an unarmed protester in the leg (blindfolded and handcuffed) and leave him by the roadside.

    As far as I know these journalists that made this program called “Eywitness – Camera Shots” here in scandinavia are not behind bars or in jail ;).
    The whole one hour documentary talks about everything Elaine wrote about in this article.

  3. seraphim

    Christian Zionists and Jews are objective allies. Don’t the
    Christian Zionists expect the coming of the “Christ” who is the Messia of the Jews and fight to bring about this event? The hitch is that in the future Kingdom they won’t have the same priviledges as the Jews. That’s why the Jews take the necessary precautions not to mix with the others, however “useful idiots” they may be.

  4. Steve Edward

    I didn’t see a single wounded or killed palestinian in your videos.

    What is your point?

  5. David

    Steve Edward:

    The point is Steve, that innocent people and farmers are walking along and are being shot at by a well armed military…If you don’t see that point, just stop looking. So, Steve, do you want the Israelis to force those Palestinians from their own farm lands so God’s chosen people can have them or what Steve???

  6. emsnews

    In the second video the farmer WAS shot and was dragged off by his family and two European observers. He died, later.

  7. David

    The more I watch these religious-nutcase scenarios unfold, the more I long for a return to the secular days when churchgoing and synagogue going were declining. It seemed that during those times,people were attempting to put these irrational religions aside and make some human progress and actually get along with each other.
    Oh, the churchgoers cried and whined to the rooftops that secular humanism was destroying Christianity and Judaism, but, in my opinion, as far as human intents were concerned, many people, especially the young, did have peace and kindness as a goal, and were trying to live by those ideals. And most of those ideals have vanished as religions again are gaining control of people’s lives.
    And I just had a debate on this blog where another blogger tried to convince me that I needed one of these religious teachers to “show me the light.” Well, I can see the light clearly, and it does not include murdering my fellow man to take his lands or because he or she believes differently from me or just because of his or her skin color. This is so fucking stupid and irrational. Gimme a break.
    Here in the South where I live, I saw the change for the worse the moment the GOP organized,fundamentalist-Christian-political movement started. We soon had many young and not so young people who “heard God calling them to spread the word.” A bunch of two year Bible colleges cranked up their machinery and began processing these believers into fundamentalist preachers of the Elmer Gantry type.
    It’s a story I’ve heard over and over again. A guy spends the first 40 years of his life fornicating and drinking and cheating everyone around him, a real bastard, and finally causes himself so much stress and pain that he asks God to help him. He then reforms himself and feels obligated to save the entire damned world. Well, I’ll pass on listening to one of these people.
    My own niece’s husband “heard the call” and went to one of these colleges after screwing half of the women in his neighborhood while niece busied herself at home raising their kids…then his guilt overwhelmed him and he “heard God talking to him.” Gimme a damned break.
    Nieces husband, who could barely write a coherent sentence, went to a two year Bible college where they taught two things,preaching…and doctrine. After the novice preachers learned the do’s an don’ts of the doctrine, they had to compose a firey sermon once a week and then were put in the preaching pit where they preached their sermon with approved dramatic effects added, to the other students and teachers…and they were criticized until they got it right. This is how those firebrand television evangelists are trained, in these two year Bible colleges.
    These preachers do not study classic philosophy, sociology, science, humanities or other traditional college curriculums that give them a broad and reasonable liberal view of the world around them.
    All they espouse is the very narrow doctrine that they are forced into. This shit is very dangerous because well intentioned followers trust these poorly educated, narrow-minded preachers to give them philosophical answers to life’s dilemmas.
    Now, there are some divinity schools that offer genuine doctorates where the minister has a full reason based liberal formal education before earning a degree. These ministers usually go to larger, more liberal churches, and most do a very good job. So, I’m not saying all ministers are bad.
    I turned against fundamentalism at about 7 years old. As I sat in a church pew squirming my bony ass around trying to get comfortable, I listened to Reverend York tell all of the audience that we were goin to “hail.” He ranted, and pounded on the pulpit and admonished women to quit wearing short dresses and makeup and acting like harlots. Every so often, he repeated the phrase that “y’all are all goin to hail.”
    As I listened in an increasingly depressed state, I thought to myself that this shit can’t be good for a person’s mind…and I began to drift away from the faith as I became a teenager
    I kept going to church out of respect to mom, and also because I found a lot of satisfaction sitting there speculating and lusting after a couple of the rather exceptional choir ladies. (I later discovered that several of them were very available during that time and that Rev. York’s sermons weren’t having much impact on their sinning).
    What really pissed me off about religion and caused my final break was my younger brother’s funeral.
    My younger brother spent his entire life valiantly fighting a genetic disease (where some people actually live in a bubble to avoid exposure to germs) that caused him to have pneumonia several times every winter until, finally, at age 27, he had too much scar tissue in his lungs to keep living…so he died. During his short life, brother excelled in academics and even made it though pharmacy school and worked a short while. He loved several women and married just before his death. Altogether, he lived a very full life in his 27 years.
    At his funeral, mom’s preacher, another fundamentalist, spent the entire time talking about how everyone has to die someday and we had better get to church and “get saved.” This bastard said nothing about brother’s full life or accomplishments or that he really enjoyed living and lived a life filled with joy because of his courage. Instead, he stood over my dead brother’s body and used it to boost his further church attendance…how sick can someone become? I was so furious, I was red-faced, but kept silent out of respect for my dad and mom.

    There is an old preacher joke. Anytime you see a (choose your preferred denomination)coming from a parishioners house, he is either patting his stomach or zipping up his pants.
    We need a return to secular humanism…Believing in God or Divine Otherness is ok, but be careful about religions, at least that’s how I see it.
    ELAINE: I sympathize with your pain, David. I have a preacher brother who HID my mother’s death from most of his siblings and all other relatives. He and my dad had a funeral with my brother’s church [my mother never knew these people] and when I chewed him out over this insult, he didn’t even bother to respond. The coward.
    I grew up in a fundie church. When the pastor sinned, they sent two church leaders to go deal with him and they were ARRESTED IN PHOENIX FOR GAY SEX! Gads! Was I ever disgusted. This was, of course, an anti-gay group.

  12. Timothy

    Sorry, but I posted this message on the 7 years cycle article by mistake.

    “My attitude towards people/religion are:

    hUMANS are sHIT, but gODS are even worse”

  13. Timothy

    Having been a “missionary” for one of these death cults, I believe I am qualified to give a wee-hour rant about what religions/ethnic strife is all about.

    People are drawn to religion because all people are assholes. They believe the god of that certain religion will somehow deal with all these assholes. Unfortunately, the god of that religion is an even bigger asshole, and the means they use to deal with all these assholes actually makes things worse. Take for example how some gods will deal with people who don’t join. Some gods will raise the dead just to torture them. Again and again without end. Even Hitler wouldn’t do something like that. You have to enjoy shit like this if you are to stay in a religion. I didn’t; so I left.

    Disagree with me? Go on any fundamentalist blog or message board and see what they REALLY think about non-believers. Visit a Calvinist blog if you want your blood to curdle. They will write thousands of pages on why eternal torture for other people is a good thing and guaranteed in their religion.

    And forget about liberals’ interpretation of religions. Liberal religions are nothing but social clubs.
    ELAINE: HAHAHA. Correct. When we are our own gods, we behave even worse. Look at Communist leader gods! Roman emperor gods! Etc. Humans make for lousy gods.

  14. criticalcontrarian

    Timothy: You have my deepest sympathy. For it to have affected you so, it must have been a very rough ride. Most all people get into problems due to misunderstanding the specific goals of the religion they choose to follow. Sad to say, you found the reality of your religion a bit too late when you up to your neck in it. Being well informed is a primary requirement before pursuing anything in life, whether it be religion, politics, business, or even something as simple as a gym workout regimen. Hard knocks in my experience has always been a good teacher. Be happy you survived, move on, and never look back. Don’t forget, but never look back. May you find the Peace you are looking for.

  15. David

    I decided to post three links to current Yahoo News headlines so people can see that what Elaine is talking about is right on target.
    Looks like our assistance to Pakistan is really turning them into a western style democracy where women have equal rights and are freed from religious oppression…not so. It seems that US leaders support Muslim governments that oppress their citizens from the top down, but disapproves of those that allow their people to make choices for themselves, like in Palestine where legally elected representatives of the people were ignored and attacked.
    Girls must again wear veils in Pakistan.
    The old Israeli fears of their Muslim neighbors are alive and well and US policy makers keep trying to paint Iran in a bad light because the US also wants to subdue all Muslims and keep them in a state of enslavement like the Palestinians. Considering how the Palestinians have been abused, their fears might be well grounded. If, however, they want to improve relations with their neighbors, they will have to quit shooting innocent children, women and farmers and stealing their land. But it appears that they want things to deteriorate so they can kill more neighbors and take over more land. However, you cut it, this is wrong.
    Iran dismisses [US] claims about nuclear material.
    Afgan Civilians Could Bear the Brunt of Increased War.
    Well,all wars cause terrible suffering among civilians…food shortages for all civilians. Normal means of movement and earning income are destroyed. The land is overrun by young, sexually charged, super aggressive enemy males who see locals as objects to shoot, rape and abuse and steal from, and civilians are powerless to do much about these abuses.
    Nowadays, in US occupied territories, if they resist, they are often beaten and tortured and imprisoned to make them docile and compliant to US wishes, at least under the last administration.
    So, overall, what Elaine is talking about is right on target, and the fucking place is going nuts.
    ELAINE: I often point out that the US reduces women’s rights when we take over countries. Frankly, the Soviets and Chinese did free women. Makes one think! 😦

  16. criticalcontrarian

    David: When the tap runs dry and Pax Americana can no longer afford to station troops and fund CIA ops in these areas they will stabilize. When the U.S. military bases were abandoned in the Philippines the insurgency rate dropped like a rock! This is a fact. They lost their rallying point and casus belli. Now that we have a US military presence in the Southern Mindanao through the Visiting Forces agreement (VFA), the Muslims have started acting up again. It is very clear who are the agitators.

    In Iraq it’s for oil. In Afghanistan it’s for poppy.

  17. criticalcontrarian

    In the mean time, Southeast Asian leaders vowed Sunday to push ahead with ambitious plans to become a European Union-style economic community by 2015 despite roadblocks posed by the global financial crisis and Myanmar’s dismal human rights record.

    While the EU melts, the AU is slowly becoming a distinct reality. As the song goes, anything you can do, we can do better. The biggest consumer market growth in human history, driven by symbiosis, not empire building. Now that’s a future we should all aspire to…

    Thank you, Tell, for the link, I will use it! 🙂
    All the links were quite useful. I do not have the time to span the entire web so I really deeply appreciate all links brought here! And I appreciated all the sharing of experience, too.
    Humans need both conservatives and liberals. Radicals and establishmentarians. Yin and yang. All things must come with a counterbalance. As we seek to guide our own lives, we must learn to have something of everything, especially patience and love.

  19. nah
    Given the systemic risk AIG continues to pose and the fragility of markets today, the potential cost to the economy and the taxpayer of government inaction would be extremely high. AIG provides insurance protection to more than 100,000 entities, including small businesses, municipalities, 401(k) plans, and Fortune 500 companies who together employ over 100 million Americans. AIG has over 30 million policyholders in the U.S. and is a major source of retirement insurance for, among others, teachers and non-profit organizations. The company also is a significant counterparty to a number of major financial institutions.
    so this reads like your using my tax dollars, to use my tax dollars, to use my tax dollars, to use my tax dollars and in order to do that you need to use my tax dollars. As opposed to the obviouse market panic that would be cause by saying ‘duh we all stupid now’
    ELAINE: 🙂 You hit the nail on the head, really hard!

  20. nah

    the master plan, perfect execution… they want to look like total idiots so they can rule the world… imaginative

  21. nah

    does the gob’ment financial situation not read like enron/worldcom/AIG/Fannies newest financial restructuring… we will do whatever it takes to make sure we can make money even if we have to use 10,000 SIV ‘off book companies’, garbage bond trickery, and securitized good faith deposits

    Dear Elaine,

    Ramzan Kadyrov is NOT an Islamist. His father was a mulla KGB agent. He is just a brutal thug who holds his people under a state of terror with Russian backing. In return, Putin lets him do whatever he wants, most notably try to paint himself as a Muslim and build big mosques ( named after his father ) while engaging in drunken orgies.

    The real reason why these women were killed is because they were prostitutes servicing Kadyrov’s guards and their time was up, he killed them in order to eliminate witnesses.
