Israel Finds Oil, Austerity Kills EU, Kraft Kills Cadbury Easter Eggs, And GOP Hates Gays

Random news today:  Israeli Gas Field Opens, Setting Stage for Energy Boom: well, now can we demand they pay their own way?  Are Jewish leaders in the US going to tolerate more mooching for US tax dollars when they can pay their own way?  Will Congress finally say no to ridiculous demands by AIPAC and foreign Jews?  Time will tell.  I doubt they will stop this gravy train they ride.

 

A video of the mess that is unfolding in the EU:  ‘Austerity will lead to Europe explosion’.  Of course.  Europe is like the US, people hate each other.  For eons.  And will continue donig this which is why the concept of a loose confederation was ridiculous from the start.

 

Bailing out the bankers in the US involved simply printing trillions of dollars in ZIRP loans to the bankers who wrecked the economy.  But Cyprus can’t do this so the Bank of Cyprus’s Customers May Lose as Much as 60% on Deposits

 

Cyprus Popular Bank (CPB) will be divided into “good” and “bad” banks, according to the statement. Deposits of less than 100,000 euros will be absorbed by Bank of Cyprus and those above that level will be placed in the bad bank.

 

You see, ‘bad banks’ are run by the government and all the goodies go to the ‘good bank’ which then goes onwards doing whatever it can get away with.  In the US, the ‘bad banks’ dumped the trash into Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and the Federal Reserve.  So all losses go to the rest of us.

 

For the last several years, the Chinese commies have tried to cut back on lending and raise interest rates: Beijing Bans One-Person Households From Buying Second Homes as the rich pull away from the poor just like everywhere capitalism reigns.

 

ZIRP is a ripoff of savers in the US, Japan and UK.  In the UK, they are getting pissed off because they now fear putting money in foreign banks due to the collapse of these such as in Iceland and Cyprus and so on:  Business Diary: Savers to target Bank Scrooge – Business News – Business – The Independent

 

In the mood for carols? If so, try the Bank of England tomorrow lunchtime, where Save Our Savers, which campaigns for higher interest rates, plans a sing-song to highlight its cause. Mind you, we can’t promise traditional carols – the list we’ve been sent includes this take on Rudolph:

 

“Mervyn, the red-nosed banker,
Had a very nasty cold,
Said he could cut inflation,
Wish that we had all bought gold.
All of the nation’s savers,
Used to cry and call him names,
They never let poor Mervyn,
Join in any saver’s games.”

I was going to do a recap of my chocolate easter egg story from two years ago but had to leave home all day so it is one day late.  Sorry.

 

Kraft bought Cadbury’s in England promising more jobs and then, one year later, announced they were firing 200 people.  In the news in England, people are mad about this but I predicted this would happen.  Cadbury was founded by a religious family who believed in helping the lower working class as much as possible unlike the US owners today who view humans as things and corporations as ‘persons’.

Cadbury and his fellow Quaker Social Reformers – QuakerInfo.com

One thing the Cadbury family did was build ideal working communities for their employees at the new factory outside of the city:  Cadbury – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Located right next to the new Stirchley Road railway station, itself directly opposite the canal, they renamed the Bournbrook estate to Bournville and opened the Bournville factory in 1879.  In 1893, George Cadbury bought 120 acres (49 ha) of land close to the works and planned, at his own expense, a model village which would ‘alleviate the evils of modern more cramped living conditions’. By 1900 the estate included 313 cottages and houses set on 330 acres (130 ha) of land. As the Cadbury family were Quakers there were no pubs in the estate; in fact, it was their Quaker beliefs that first led them to sell tea, coffee and cocoa as alternatives to alcohol.

On 7 September 2009 Kraft Foods made a £10.2 billion (US$16.2 billion) indicative takeover bid for Cadbury…Kraft, 

 

 

which issued a statement stating that the deal will create a “global confectionery leader”, had to borrow £7 billion (US$11.5bn) in order to finance the takeover.

 

 

 

Back in the good old USA, Bra-clad “zombie ex-girlfriend” target bleeds when you shoot it —look at the picture at this link.  The target bleeds red stuff and it is a woman dressed in a bra.  It looks quite realistic and this reminds us that many dudes buy guns so they can murder ex-wives and ex-girlfriends.  Another white dude used his guns while cutting the hedge:  Documentary filmmaker who saved Romanian orphans KILLED by his neighbor after an argument about SHRUBBERY and in gun-happy Texas more prosecutors are assassinated at home along with the wife.

Eric Harroun: U.S. Army veteran is ARRESTED on charges of ‘conspiring with al Qaeda and plotting to use a weapon of mass destruction’  because it is OK for Muslims to kill people if the CIA arms them but not OK for Muslims to come here even if they are citizens, and do the same.

Rep. Matt Salmon: Gay son hasn’t changed my views on gay marriage: this Arizona (Phoenix, the dark side of the moon there) Congressman doesn’t want his gay son to have any civil rights as a gay man but his son is OK with this since he is a Log Cabin boy.  That is, he is OK with second class civil rights so long as daddy doesn’t shoot him dead.

When I lived in Arizona, I knew one gay kid in my high school whose dad, in 1968, shot him dead when he said he was gay.  In the chest in front of the cops.  So at least some tiny progress is made with daddy simply not allowing legal rights rather than going for outright murder.  More Democrats are finally (!!!) coming out for full civil rights for gays.  But few Republicans and the Catholic Church now says gays don’t have to be stoned or burned at the stake but should never  have any rights because Jesus, one of the gayest guys ever, hates gays for some bizarre reason.

He and his 12 buddies.  Right.

Someday, all these guys will figure out that women have rights as well as gays and assorted other humans who are not white powerful males.  Yes, someday, in the near future, I hope, a female Pope will tell them all this fact of life.  Oh, and god is female.  Another oddity these guys can’t endure.  (Hint: she is Mother Nature and her sisters are Infinity, Zero and Lady Luck…and then there is Libra at the Gates of Death).

    Ha!

    Israeli Navy Seeks $700 Million to Protect New Gas Fields
    Will US Be Stuck Paying to Guard Israel’s Gas Boom?

    How many ways can you spell yes?

    LOL! There isn’t the slightest chance that Israel will pay it’s own way; most likely, they will follow the European example of dumping all the money into ultimately unsustainable social welfare spending, while sticking the US taxpayer for their defense bill!

    Meanwhile, in merry olde Europe, we’re witnessing what happens in the final stages of crony capitalism, and an unsustainable welfare state; Maggie Thatcher said it best, some 30 years ago; They have now run out of other people’s money. Things there are going to get ugly in a hurry, and all the ancient hatreds that have been submerged are now bubbling back to the surface; hopefully, the US will be smart enough to stay out of their next war.

    Hooray! Somebody else sees this too! 😀

    I’ve been saying for years, the leftists in America, who scold us for not being just like Europe, are idiots. Europe doesn’t pay it’s own tab militarily, so they’ve got lots of money to spend on a cradle-to-gravy-train for their citizens. Plus, they have tough immigration standards, so nobody can sneak in and get the goodies. America has NONE of this.

    When the SHTF in America, te Euro-socialists are going to be nine kinds of screwed. No military to speak of, no more money for endless goodies for the citizens, and no giant pool of consumers to dump their products on.

    Israel has nukes, and military service is compulsory, but they’re extremely outnumbered, and the Muslims are very hungry – and VERY angry…

    And our military is very bloated and gold plated and ill-led by commanders who are never under fire and the elites running this tend to mainly be cowards who never have to pay the full price of war.

    But war will seek them all out, one way or another. Even if they hide in bunkers like Bush and Cheney did on 9/11.

    I cannot believe that RT is hosting an economist named Max Keiser who is promoting “bitcoins”, and now says that they should be “hedged” with silver.

    What?

    He claims bitcoins are outside the financial terror network of the western banking cartels, yet they are nothing more than bits on a computer screen.

    The comments are excellent. One said: Have fun with your new bitCon.

    I completely agree. And yes, they will eventually reap what they sow. The question is, how do we stop these psychopaths from killing the rest of us with their folly?!

  8. IAmSpartacus

    The Muslims have every right to be angry, but their anger is misdirected; the people that they really ought to be pissed off at are the Brits and the French. The majority of the problems in the Middle East today are the result of the allies arbitrarily drawing lines on a map of the ME at the end of WW1. Ever hear of “Winston’s hickup”?

    Lucky, the military is like prison and we have the same from men in prison who are NOT gay but frustrated. Men will have sex with anything when they don’t have women around.
