    American Corporations Too Busy Cheating Taxpayers to Actually Produce Good Products

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s announcement of a series of new rules to reduce the financial incentives behind corporate inversions tells you a lot about where our economy sits right now. Productivity and growth scarcely matter as much as what I would call the “gimmick economy.” Companies now spend an inordinate amount of time figuring out not how to beat their competition, but how to prosper from tricks and loopholes their accountants find buried in the law. Every corporation has become, at the root, a financial company, adept at moving money around on paper and little else. And the government has to scramble in a never-ending race to keep up with the innovations.

    [I]"In general, the combination of authoritarian rule, high unemployment, poor opportunities for social advancement, demographic youth bulges, low public investment in education and health and other public services, and anger at high levels of corruption, and outright thievery, in the Middle East and North Africa, and in Latin America, will prompt public uprisings that will topple their leaders. Chavez, Assad are definitely in this list after their close friend Gadhafi has moved on to better pastures, in hell! Needless to say, the Cuban government also needs to be overthrown!"[/I]
    Have they not been out and about lately?
    Imposed Government in Greece and Italy, UK is a virtual desert of unemployment, opportunity and freedoms; also a Dictatorship, imposing theft taxes and Benefit cuts, giving less for more, breaking up our National Health Service, our Schools, any service which can be gifted over to failed Private Management....constant surveillance and intimidation of those who protest against being exploited. And, it is even worse in USA.
    UN Resolutions are now quite suspect. They were manipulated in Iraq and Libya, to allow the US to virtually pillage the country, which they did. Libya is aware but, still is allowing the US to give 'Financial advice'...can't think why, they messed up their own, in terms of this 'advice' Libya will pay dearly. Some will benefit but not the people. These are usually offers in the vane off..take it or else.
    Syria is tragic of course, before we can aid Syria we need to regain our own freedoms. I suggest that we leave the Arabs to worry about their own, it won't happen as the vultures want the Oil, it is not a concern we can cope with at this time. We are trying to clean up our own Stables.

    Technology is the answer for desalinisation, the process is a steam - condensate system, but the technology when linked to enhanced solar power actually works, the plants require large amounts of energy, but they are usually in geographic areas where solar power works exceptionally well, the problem is investment to start with, famine and drought usually happen in the poorest and most unstable countries where getting one of these systems up and running would virtually impossible.

    If the fresh water is becoming more scarce and the sea level is rising shurely the answer is to buil de-salination plants and turn the salt water in to fresh water.
    If we had done this in the African droudt spots years ago the people there would not be suffering now. In fact given the weather in the area they would be able to grow fruit and veg and create a food based export economy. Everyone would have been a winner.

    We need to start again, we are all resigned to a two party political system. In all honesty I am not surprised we have been blind up until and no doubt continuing past this point.
    No democracy stands a chance when only two political parties effectively exist, and no democracy stands a chance in the current political system. We need to strip it and start again.

    2 days after this Blog was posted, the Republican Party have claimed they will accept Defaulting on the US debts rather than agree to Democrat Proposals.

    As I posted yesterday, we should also Default....the only losers will be the Swine who robbed the Money in the first place. Now we can strip them of all assets.

    Six months before the General Election I posted that what we were going to get from a new Government is exactly what we are getting now....and we didn't even vote for them, they just slithered in under the door of 10 Dirt St. SW1, and immediately stuck their snouts in the trough.

    I also said that the OBR was a cobbled together penniless baby of the idiot Brideshead Osborne and only an imbecile, with no reputation to lose, would head it up, Budd popped up, the press soon but the imbecile down.

    Now, I wish to point out that the so called expert who reviewed the Mod Budget. Levine, is the very same pratt who screwed up procurement with his Auschwitz Economics. This pratt is currently exiting Lloyds and wishes to set up a new Bank....my advice........run for your money!

    The "inadequate" actions of commanding officers, combined with poor intelligence and lack of air and fire support, contributed to more than a dozen coalition deaths during a Taliban ambush in Afghanistan last year, according to a new report. Thirteen coalition servicemembers, including five U.S. troops, died in the September 8, 2009, attack in Kunar province. An Afghan interpreter was also killed. "The actions of key leaders at the battalion level were inadequate and ineffective, contributing directly to the loss of life which ensued" during the ambush, said the report, issued by the International Security Assistance Force.

    Should Scotland declare UDI, to prevent an unelected ragbag Coalition from destroying its economy. Droopy Cameo, our Model of a Modern Major General Buffoon, and Brideshead Oyster card (cheap to get expensive to run) have done more damage to England than 13 years of a stonking Labour Party.

    Our only available retort is to stop Banking in England, stop buying in England, organise not for profit Utilities in an Independant Scotland, and we should also move our businesses to the only part of of UK which has a shred of reputation left.

    Opinions are welcome

    You may have noticed that upon his return from being humilated at Davos, Droopy, our new Furher, let loose a rash of stupid unconsidered initiatives, grab all our forests being the more notable, to distract us from his utter humiliation by the grubby little Sark-cosy and Schloss Merkel, the EU Gauleiter. The cover up of how they are swindling us continues as he proclaims like Hitler that we will not now ever free ourselves of our City swindlers debt as it is now incorporated into our state.
    What we see is that all our money is needed to return the financial elites investments and, move them away to overseas Ali-Babas alpine vaults. Droopy is just buying time so that the wealthy can get their grubby money out, sell off their 900 years of stolen property and dine out in sleazy Monaco, laughing about how they screwed us again.

    Budd is out the door, the OBR is a laughing stock amongst self modified 'financial experts', and Brideshead is so confused about financial policy, that he can only bleat about cuts and taxes for the poor.

    This original blog had a clarity to it as to the coming confrontation which would condemn most of the people of this country to abject slavery and, even as they slave for a pittance they will still be paying to keep the wealthy swindlers in luxury. No wonder they call us the mighty legion of fools.

    Millions wasted on a stage show by and for perverts ... no nazi catholic gangs in UK.
    The Vicar of the church of Perversion demands 12 Million pounds to perform in the UK.


    Why are we paying millions for this charade .... we have our own clowns do we need to import more.
    You can still believe in Jesus, if this is your need, and you don't need to belong to a gangster religious cult such as the catholics, they, after all, copied and stole the story of Jesus away from the original christians, and then proceeded to massacre them to stop any competition. The Christian Religion was there long long before the catholic murderers. In modern times we would call that copyright theft and thats the least of their brutalities.

    We are stark raving bonkers when it comes to whom we allow to control England's finances.

    This political game is called 'Yo Yo' financial regulating. After the secondary bank crash it was decided that the BOE was not a fit bank regulator so, bank regulation was taken away from BOE and, you guessed it, set up at the FSA. Now, its buggins turn again, the BOE, with a massive past history of failed bank regulation, is taking regulation over from the corrupt failure the FSA.
    What is clear is that politicians are not capable of managing our countries finances and we need to remove from them all control of the Treasury. A Treasury Commission should regulate all political spending. As matters stand at this time we are always being defrauded by the politicians, and we already know that they are conmen: their lies are broadcast in the media every day.

    No because we dont owe the money in the first place. It was printed out of nothing and given to the banks to lend back to us , its called FIAT currency and this particular example is fraudulant.
    Until we say "no" like iceland have and stop going along with their scams and legitimising their false reality by believing them we will be their wage/debt slaves , unfortunatly most people have been decieved into thinking it was all a mistake that just accidently benifited the banks. We are being sold down the river as slaves and need to realise that.
