    Why Governments should take their( our) Wallet Back from the Banks. 

    The emo spoilt brat, trustafarian Bankers have stolen the Family wallet and Dad is in the Pawn shop pawning mums wedding ring to get some groceries for the weekend. The brat is off Skiing for the weekend on the largesse of Dads wallet of course.
    Solution, Take the wallet back tell the brat that they should earn their own money and save up for a skiing trip from their own money earned from their Saturday Job.

    Debt Jubilee, Inflation a Jubilee of sorts. 

    It just occurred to me reading this.( http://www.golemxiv.co.uk/2012/04/vulturecrats/#comment-24762 Inflation could be seen as a sort of built in Debt jubilee, by stealth.

    The doubling time at 2% inflation is 35 years.

    Biblical jubilees were every 50 years or so. Implying an indexed jubilee rate of inflation of 1.4%

    70/50= 1.4%   Back of an envelope stuff, the property developer in me is taking a long time to exorcise.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jubilee_(biblical)

    This is a very fair blog discussing and trying to get to grips with the idea of Debt Jubillee, Reading the comments is helpful too.

    We’re all Niggers Now. 

    “Your music should be abou’ where you’re from an’ the sort o’ people yeh come from.—Say it once, say it loud, I’m black an’ I’m proud …—The Irish are the niggers of Europe, lads.”
    The Commitments. http://www.yale.edu/glc/tangledroots/tr02c.htm


    Envy is a terrible thing like Jealousy, very destructive.

    The system sets up the Beautiful Rich people as role models and then punishes us all for falling short of the impossible standards mythologised in its own propaganda and we are then chastised for not being worthy.
    I started my day today doing some reading on the Juxtaposition of Context and Motivation. Kiplings line in If , you can walk the unforgiving minute and build it back up with broken tools springs to mind(Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build’em up with worn-out tools;)
    The way I see it is that almost everybody is a victim here ( even to an extent the complicit and ignorant perpetrators ( forgive them father for they know not what they do.)and The corporations tell us it is all our fault because we demand the lower prices, Cornell wests quote below points to the caution required in allocating responsibility to victims?
    My aim is not to provide excuses for black behavior or to absolve blacks of personal responsibility. But when the new black conservatives accent black behavior and responsibility in such a way that the cultural realities of black people are ignored, they are playing a deceptive and dangerous intellectual game with the lives and fortunes of disadvantaged people. We indeed must criticize and condemn immoral acts of black people, but we must do so cognizant of the circumstances into which people are born and under which they live. By overlooking these circumstances, the new black conservatives fall into the trap of blaming black poor people for their predicament. It is imperative to steer a course between the Scylla of environmental determinism and the Charybdis of a blaming-the-victims perspective.

    We’re all Niggars now in the brave new world of the European Super state, all hail Borrosso and the other unelected technocratic leaches.

    The Context.

    The Motivation.

    Hey Mr Politician, ya know they payin me scrip
    Been working a life time you given me Zip
    Even in Debt I can’t make ends meet
    It’s Crowded in the gutter and Mean on the street.

    Served in the name of your country for Kings and Queen
    A home fit for heroes is this what you mean
    Compounded interest never make ends meet
    Miss a few PaYments and thrown in the street

    Workin For life time my fingers are Raw
    Work all the hours god sends and fight your bloody war
    Deeper in debt but daren’t ask for more
    Seems there’s a rule for the rich another for the Poor.

    Gold it don’t Rust But Midas still Starved
    We’re Ruled by your FIAT that aint the cars
    Aint no Corporation lets me Work Rest and Play
    An Honest Days work for a fairs Day pay

    You Know we been Conned but you pay no head
    You’re ignoring our Need and feeding their Greed
    You reep what you sow and you stolen our seed
    were the 99% and we’ve mouths to feed

    GOLD IT DON’T RUST BUT MIDAS STIL STARVED
    We’re Ruled by FIAT that aint the cars
    Aint no Politician lets me work rest and Play
    An Honest Days Work for a Fair Days Pay

    You Reep what you Sow but you aint payin no head
    You’r ignoring our plight and sharin their Greed
    Hey mr BAnker Man get the hell out of Here
    we the 99% and we want whats Fair.

    You Reep what you sow and you stolen the Seed
    we the 99% and we’ve moutHs to feed

    Gold it don’t Rust But Midas he starved
    We aint taking your Fiat we aint driving you’re car.

    Wardrobe Malfunction and the Corporate State. 


    Wardrobe Malfunction and the Corporate State.




    Confirmation bias is built into the probabilistic mathematics of the scientific method. One of the many truths we seek is that there is no single truth Plurality denies hedgemonic precedencey and biasś are born as so many Ptolemaic epicycles in support of un justifiable paradigms.

    This is the basis of my 2013 new years resolution.
    Posted to Facebook earlier.

    The most positive thing I can think of for 2013 is to work on the Hypothesis that everything should be questioned, nothing taken for granted. Always mistrust power and authority and only ever submit to its demands as requests and not if they are patently against your own good conscience.
    The State the Government , Large Corporations are all sat in the same Boat and like the Titanic any life rafts are reserved for the first Class Passengers. Not a man Jack of them gives a flying hoot about you, your family or your community the best solution, embrace the Bristol Pound( More widely monetary reform), local business and farmers markets. support local community efforts and reject the bullshit of consumerist dream factories.

    I blogged about this wonderful Library back in the Autumn.

    I think West calls em as he sees em, he is a philosopher and confirmation bias is not his stock in trade. So much of the scientific method these days is subject to patronage and patronage leads to patronisation. We are all patronised intellectually by both the State and Corporations Globalisation is not just a state lead phenomenon it is a multi national corporation construct which is against the interests of ordinary people. We are all ordinary people even CEO´s, Billionaires and Media superstars. That media fantasies are invented and pedaled to have us believe otherwise, pandering to all of our inherent desires for security and escapism. does not make the fantasies from the Corporate dream factory true. Ordinarily a bit of George Carlin might be expected here but how about some Hunting of the Snark.

    “Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:
    That alone should encourage the crew.
    Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:
    What i tell you three times is true.”

    Lewis Carrol.
    http://www.literature.org/authors/carroll-lewis/the-hunting-of-the-snark/chapter-01.html

    An honest exchange of perception of events in as wide a quorum as possible will allow us the courage to challenge the Truth Claims made as to the Corporate States inadequate wardrobe.
