When Doing Nothing Is the Only Smart Thing To Do

The global melt down is raging and gathering strength, turning from a Category 3 Hurricane to a Category 4 and threatening a Category 5 with maybe an earthquake or a volcano for company and every move of the central banks has failed. Why?

Simply put, the Masters of the Universe (or at least it's Finances) have read the wrong history books to draw the wrong conclusions. All are looking at the Great Depression, where over inflated stocks and high interest rates and a relatively tight money market caused a large crash and where liquidity was pulled out causing a massive contraction.

The problem is, of course, this is the wrong experience to look at but it is the model upon which they are basing their solutions on: flooding the market with liquidity where hyper inflation is not a possibility but now a given. Of course the issue here is one of confidence not more cash, but as the insanity continues (doing the same thing under the same conditions and expecting a different result) liquidity and lower interest rates (thus sparking more liquidity) is being constantly created and yet the markets continue to fall. Why?

The better historical example is the Bank Panic of 1872. What never heard of that? To bad, because it made the Great Depression look not so great and not as so much of a depression. Unemployment rates hit nearly 50% from the central plains of the Russian Empire west to the gold coast of the American Empire (and yes, the US has been an empire from the day it broke away from England. An Imperial Republic but an Empire non-the-less. On this at another time).

What caused the great Bank Panic of 1872? The introduction of mortgages in Austro-Hungary and the German Empire (substitute for complex mortgages by modern America and England). Both were driven on to much loose money, no supervision, massive corruption and a huge "perpetual" building spree. The entry into the market by a new economic giant under cutting prices in the industrialized world for manufactured goods and food products, was the final push. In this case it was America doing it to Europe, just like China has done it now to America.

America in the late 1860s early 1870s caused a collapse of established industries in Russia, Austro-Hungary, Germany and France. This in turn drove up unemployment, put a brake on new planned and often under construction projects and caused the banks to reposes property. Thus began a Crisis of Confidence and walla, something that makes the Great Depression look almost trivial and affected every major nation. Sounds like today? "Ywu Betche" as Vice Presidential candidate Palin would say, if she understood anything about economics. She doesn't.

So what is the solution for a Crisis of Confidence? Doing nothing...something the modern Keynesian ideologues can not bring themselves to do. They blindly, and yes these egotistical monsters are blind to anything but their own bloated opinions of self worth, feel in the deepest recesses of their souls that they must do something, always, for the world would surely collapse if they did not.

But here is the rub, the more they do, the more radical their actions, the more of a message of panic they send. This is simple human logic, but something far beyond their ability to grasp. Every bailout has shown that the central banks fear a far worse future then they let on. This in turn has drawn a bigger draw down in the markets. Every flood of cash, has had the same effect. Every hollow assurance has rung just hollow, but still they continue.

If you want the solution, say enough is enough. The markets did not collapse when the US Congress, for a short brief momentary break from its greed and stupidity, actually shot down the $700 billion bailout. The markets began to recover, yes recover. But what did those idiots that the American people hire but never fire, in Congress do? They allocated yet even more funds to various "emergency" projects and now passed a $850 billion bailout, even bigger, even more radical and sending an even louder message of "we're doomed! All doomed!"

The markets have reacted accordingly.

The coordinated rate cuts have done the same. Now the crisis is obviously not limited to one or two or three countries but to the investors' eyes, it has spread world wide. Why else would central banks collaborate in this way. It must be true.

Again, the markets have reacted accordingly.

This weekend's meeting of top world leaders with the Bush regime, to "solve" the issue and the possibility of further American Marxism (yes America, you are a Socialist mega-state taking your final steps into the loving embrace of Marx...enjoy the next 100 years of pain, you're bringing it on yourself), by further nationalization of the banking sectors, will cause the markets to again react accordingly.

Thus the vicious cycle, where every solution only creates a worse problem and requires a yet more radical solution creating as yet a more radical problem.

The only question that remains in this perfect spiraling storm: is this all by accident or purposeful?

Regarding your Article on Pravda.Ru titled "the Hypocrisy of American Democracy."

After reading that article I have come to the conclusion that you are a complete idiot.

I would love to know where you got the sources of information.

I can not believe that someone has the audacity to write an article about American Hypocrisy by SPREADING LIES ON A WEBSITE THAT MEANS TRUTH!

You are an ignorant biggot!

Stanislav said...

Thank you for your deep and insightful response, now that you've finished showing yourself to be a semi-intelligent 5th grader, care to post the points you find in contention...or is that screed of yours about as far as your intellectual capacity will take you?

Lev said...

"It is a democracy where children are forced to accept homosexuality as a "normal" lifestyle and are even taught the details of homosexual sex and encouraged to experiment and parents who protest to loudly can be arrested (state dependent but the number of states where this is true is quickly growing). "

Wait a mintue... WHAT?

1. Most of this country still can not handle the prospect of Homosexuals running around freely through the streets and getting "special rights" like marriage, and having their own children.

2. A majority of this country sees homosexuals as anything but normal. They continually protest and vote against laws that would make homosexuality more normal and give equal rights to everyone in this nation. That allegation is completely false.

3. Children are taught details of the homosexual lifestyle and encouraged to experiment? Where the hell is that happening? When I went through health class just 4 years ago homosexuality was not even mentioned let alone encouraged. It was taboo and I went to a pretty liberal high school.

can you please explain to your dear readers where you acquired this interesting theory?

I for one believe that you pulled it straight out of your ignorant ass and pasted it online for the whole world to read.

Furthermore, it is sad that you are backed by a news organization that I once thought really was all about Pravda. You have completely discredited that organization with that pathetic excuse for journalism.

Stanislav said...

With pleasure, shooting you down:
First, so you don't claim that I stated that this is in every state of the US: t is a democracy where children are forced to accept homosexuality as a "normal" lifestyle and are even taught the details of homosexual sex and encouraged to experiment and parents who protest to loudly can be arrested (state dependent but the number of states where this is true is quickly growing)

Decision to teach kids to be 'gay' allowed to stand

A federal court decision approving mandatory public school instruction for children as young as kindergarten in how to be homosexual is being allowed to stand, drawing a description of "despicable" from the parent who unsuccessfully challenged his school district's "gay" advocacy agenda.

The U.S. Supreme Court without comment has refused to intervene in a case prompted by the actions of officials at Estabrook Elementary school in Lexington, Mass., who not only were teaching homosexuality to young children, but specifically refused to allow Christian parents to opt their children out of the indoctrination.

Gay Porn as Required Reading in Ill. High School, Media Silent

The story of an Illinois high school making a gay pornographic play required reading for seniors has been reported since March 7th, but it has been ignored for the most part with only a handful of news outlets having taken on this issue. The fact that a public high school that requires such reading doesn't raise a fuss in the media shows how the media supports the gay agenda, of course. It also shows the arrogance of the Deefield, Illinois school administrators that tried to slip this advocacy for homosexuality into the curriculum without bothering to sponsor a discussion on including it among the community that pays the taxes for the school district.

If your child's school observes the homosexual sponsored "Day of Silence," keep your child at home April 25.

Friday, April 25, several thousand schools across the nation will be observing "Day of Silence (DOS)." DOS is a nationwide push to promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools.

AFA is joining other family-oriented groups in urging parents to keep their children at home that day if their local school is participating in the DOS project. By remaining silent, the intent of the pro-homosexual students is to disrupt the classes while promoting the homosexual lifestyle.,2933,404502,00.html

Murdered Gay Boy's Family Blames School for Letting Him Wear Makeup

The family of a gay teenager who was fatally shot in class blames the school district for allowing their son to wear makeup and feminine clothing to school — factors the family claims led to the death.

The parents and brother of 15-year-old Larry King of Oxnard filed a personal injury claim against the Hueneme school district seeking unspecified damages for not enforcing the dress code, The Ventura County Star reported.

Chicago plans school for gay students

The Pride Campus of Social Justice High School would be open to all students in the city, and would probably end up being "majority straight", said Arne Duncan, the head of Chicago Public Schools.

But it would provide a supportive atmosphere for gay pupils, using prominent gays and lesbians - including James Baldwin and Gertrude Stein - in its curriculum.

So do you need more or does this make my point? Your pitch, sport.

In your 20 years of life, there's a lot you do not know and a lot you haven't seen.

Great Choice of sources.

Worldnetdaily is nothing more than a hateful, right wing, biased news organization that specializes in spinning stories to adhere to the likes of intolerant bigots like yourself. I am not surprised that you can relate to this organization.

Same goes for your "gay porn" source. I have not read the play and I doubt that you have either, but once again the source is a right wing biased hate mongering news organization that will do anything to spread its hateful agenda. There is a huge difference between gay porn and a piece of literature. There is a thing in America called freedom of speech. This applies to all forms of media, I don't expect you to be accustomed to it seeing how you grew up in an oppressive soviet era. It's not your fault you were just raised in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The day of silence is not meant to promote homosexuality but instead to promote tolerance and non violence. There is no reason why homosexuals should be targeted to attacks and violence simply because of the way that they were born. And yes, belive it or not after the 1950's no one (except for you) believes that homosexuality is a mental illness. You can not make someone be gay, and you can not make someone not be gay. Its just the way it is. We can go over the whole nature vs. nurture discussion but its pointless. This source is simply disgusting. Its a bunch of bible humping idiots that cant leave their opinions at home. They would much rather promote a hateful agenda than accept people for who they are. The day of silence is a peaceful protest. (Another concept that may be foreign to you.)

The other stories that you mentioned are just as ridiculous and show an exception not the rule of educational systems in America.

Furthermore, I don't understand your personal hatered for homosexuals. What have they ever done to you? All they want to do is mind their own business, live their lives peacefully, and love who they choose to. They are not imposing hateful messages toward heterosexuals so why are you doing that to them? Perhaps you have some unsolved homosexual issues in your own life that cause you to lash out a group that has done nothing wrong to you personally. You should see a therapist for that.

Its funny how you say that America is being hypocritical. America is about freedom and equality. By accepting homosexuals for normal human beings they are not being hypocritical but instead staying true to their roots of freedom, equality, and justice.

I don't expect a bitter lonely man like you to understand any of this. You were brainwashed by soviet propaganda and just cant let it go to this day. It's over Stanislav, why dont you write about something important, something peaceful something that would bring something good into this world instead of promoting your hateful ignorant agenda.

Well at last you've come through and shown yourself for what you are. Junior, you now skip along and vote for the marxist of your choice and maybe if you're lucky enough, one day you'll be smart enough to regret it...but I'm done talking with you.

You made an accusation, I proved it wrong with five separate sources, one even non-US (British), now you do ad honeum attacks, a sign of a person without a leg to stand be a good chap and bugger off.

Oh and be a bright kid next time and link your "criticism" to the correct article.

Kid, you really need to do a bit more reading than the propaganda you were fed in school. You're oozing ignorance and dogma. I'll leave you to your bliss and to which ever Marxist Messiah (Obammanation or McInsanity) you choose to worship.

Hi, Stan.
Your English is very good, but your views are very 'anti', you know.
The 'Truth' doesn't lead to Peace & friendship too often. There comes a point somebody gets shot! Look at Lennon, Kennedy etc...
Most of the elections in the West are stolen, you know. The proletariat in US and UK are looking forward to Vodka, Zenit St. Petersburg, Kournikova, Zemanova, fur hats, gloves and boots, Lada, Tata, and anything else that brings the best of Russia... We have no quarrel... Don't you think the same divisive gangsters are thieving from tax payers in the West?!
Best Wishes, 53 north.

Michael said...

Every time I read your article, I wonder why do you hate The States so much? Is this because you can't get a visa to come here and see it for youself how great this country is? I've been to Russia, and thank god I don't live there! It's corrupted to the point that you can buy your way out of sun burn.

Seven Star Hand said...

Hello Stanislaw,

It will soon become obvious, to even the most clueless, that it will be easier to step away from the deceptions of the past and finally fix our civilization so it works for everyone, not just a few. Why should humanity struggle and suffer any longer to repay debts and endure debacles created by greedy and deceptive monetary and political leaders? The power of the rich and arrogant is about to be blown away on the winds of irresistible change.

Here is Wisdom...

Stanislav said...

Michael, I have been to America plenty of times in the past and seen much more of the country than most Americans ever will. I do not hate America per say or the people, but your corrupt One Party Two Branch system is a threat to most of the world, as has been shown by the absolute corruption of your mortgage and money market industry and the fact that after lieing to the world for 14 years, you are now dragging everyone into the grave you created for yourself.

You tell yourself how uncorrupt you are even as you are, along with everyone, indebted to the bankers who will walk away from this with every cent of their money and leave you debt slaves for generations.

America as established by your own constitution and founding fathers is nothing, absolutely nothing like the Trotskyte police state you now call "freedom". Sure you can still choose which fast food to go, now that's freedom.

But if telling yourself your fantasy lets you sleep better at night, all the luck to you, you will need it...just remember, a proud begger is a hungry begger and when it comes to money, the US is now the world's begger and Russia is the 6th largest financier.

Michael said...

If it was not for oil, Russia would be in shambles. Putin and his chronies robbed your country blind. He is, unofficially, one of the richest man on the planet. You don't get rich like that on presidential salary. Besides, if you don't belong to Putin's party, you ain't gonna get very far. Now, since the oil prices are falling, I think that the Russians will be losing their leverage out there rather fast. Third world country is third world country, any which way you want to slice it. The U.S. will do what it always does best-clean up, and come back stronger and better. We've done it before, we'll do it again

f it was not for oil, Russia would be in shambles. Putin and his chronies robbed your country blind. He is, unofficially, one of the richest man on the planet.

While it's true without the oil the present wealth would not be there, your mistake is thinking its nothing but oil. Oil was taxed at 90% above the 25th dollar while other industries were taxed at 14-24% to allow them to grow. Now oil is far from the major thing, actually only 14% of the economy and shrinking.

As for robbing Russia, that was Yelstin and his NYC/DC puppet masters, thanks but no thanks, not the way, how does it feel to be robbed blind to make sure you bankers keep their $50 million salaries while you sovietize your economy? Be more worried about how blindly robbed you are.

Now, since the oil prices are falling, I think that the Russians will be losing their leverage out there rather fast. Third world country is third world country, any which way you want to slice it.

Wow so what do you call a former super power that produces almost non of its own consumer goods, even has to outsource parts of its military equipment, can't even make a television or a pair of tennis shoes and is the biggest debtor in the world, while nationalizing the last major sector of it's economy and creating $1.5 TRILLION in 2 months time? The Modern America...welcome to real 3rd world status...all made by Christless and mindless greed and the stupidity of the voting public who went and still are going along with it.

Lev and the rest of you who been living obviously in an ignorant denial of what happens around you and as americans have a very hard time accepting that anything you have not been brainwashed on your TV screens or listen to your mass media propaganda machines does not exist. I dont think are much to say to all of you who only come here to spread yet again how ignorant and un educated americans are actually so ignorant it is painful to any ones mind to accept you are for real and actually believe what you saying.
The point is little peanut butter brains even you can no longer escape reality and experience that propaganda spoon feed to you is happening to you not to Russia or any other country, and before you again speak of Putin or any other leader of this world that actually cares of the people who put him there and not robbing them blind turn their children with mandatory vaccinations and drug use in schools or sending them in countries that done nothing wrong to steal their wealth and kill women and children understand this now. What you send around is coming double time to your door step.
Good luck to all you idiots keep thinking Bush is a savior and you are the chosen children. Well you not actually just idiots who will if not yet a very hard awakening.

First thing I am not an American (thank god) I am Australian of Russian/Italian (what a mix) decent.

The only people in the world who don't realise they have stuffed the world economies are Americans (just ask any American)

What you guys are talking about is true our western society is corrupt and insidious and is on its knees, the problem in most Western society is that we are so dependent on money we cannot see past this crisis, and the other fact is we are sheep we believe everything our media and Government tell us.

The war in Iraq was proof of that-first it was WMD'S then when there was none it was a change of leadership. The thing that still gets me is who made America king of the world, what gives them the right to attack a Sovereign Nation (other than oil)

The latest media feeding frenzy was Russia’s involvement in Chechnya. It took a long time for the truth to come out and when it did it was a whisper. The fact is Russia was defending citizens that were being slaughtered. Good try GW Bush.

Unfortunately with the collapse of the World Economy it will affect all of us even here in Resource rich Australia. The only pleasure I can derive from this situation is watching America “the evil empire” collapse and collapse it will as it is on the nose it stinks to high heaven and is finally getting what it deserves.

Sorry to the Nice Americans out there but this crisis is caused by your Government and the greed of most large corporations and banks that has made our western economic system collapse. All our Governments attempts to stop this collapse are like watching a man defend the coast from a tidal wave with a sand bag. Just last week our Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and his band of merry men created havoc when they guaranteed deposits in Australian Banks, the rush of cash leaving mortgage funds has started to become an avalanche and causing more problems with funds ect

If this is the price of capitalism who needs it???

Cheers and great blog guys keep up the good work

I like your term ”one police state, two party political system” because – that is exactly right and should be obvious even to those who are blind, deaf and on top of it plain stupid, but hey, this is America so even those that have their senses and their brains ‘intact’ are not ‘getting it’ because they are afraid to look in the mirror as who is really to blame.

Yes, because Americans are such cowards – they allowed rape after their rape to be commited against them and their nation, and now they are also very fearful of what is coming to a point that they do not want to rock the boat, but unfortunately the boat is already sinking.

So, their fix is to rearrange the deck chairs on this sinking boat.
I absolutely agree with your observation of West that is dying that i not only financially but also morally bankrupt. And, I think that this may be a good thing, if Americans wake the fu%k up and take over the control of their own country.
But, I do not believe that this is probable.

Americans are nowadays such a bunch of soulless servants of really a Satanic Elite that runs a secular, perverted Godless state.

And, those crooks and criminals that rule the world with help of their servants and dumbed down American sheeple are leading the America to a combination of communism and fascism.
So, I think that this is worse than you think, if it was only the communism it would not be so bad because in communism you would still have the job or place where to sleep and food on the table.

What really ticks me off is that those robot radicals would jump on you and me and other people who are not afraid to say it how it is.

The greatest danger for Western Civilization is the ignorance and arrogance of her people and I think this will be the downfall of this “modern society” that can no longer be fixed.

American mindset is the same as the mindset of someone who is told that he has a terminal cancer and unless he
first acknowledges this fact so that he can be treated – he is going to die.

This is exactly what is happening to America, Americans refuse to admit to themselves that they are just disposable slaves, used and abused, and they refuse to see what is written on the wall.
Yes, many of them soon to be disposed of as the Rockefeller- Rothschild system of usury is soon to be replaced with cashless monetary system with totalitarian control of all things including all people, the system in which computer digits in form of electronic credit control who eats and who starves.
And, we can bet that those who decide to rebel will find their bank accounts empty overnight.
That is what is coming. I think that their monetary system is so screwed up, so corrupted and so difficult to keep on life support, even with help of plunge protection team that Controllers can’t wait for cashless monetary credit system implementation.

Americans do not want to admit that their government is criminal, unjust, morally corrupt and driven by the rogues in positions of power and directed by the elite criminals from the shadows. Just like Germans in 1930’s Americans keep ignoring it and if convenient they keep blaming someone (anyone!) else for their own cowardice under that insane usury system.

This nation is finished, it cannot be fixed. Because, you need a least few percent of awakened people to make the change, but what do you do when not one in 1000 Americans will even talk about it, much less ask “what can I do to fix the problem”

As someone who was born in former Yugoslavia that coincidentally Americans destroyed, God only knows why, I can see where U.S. is going to, I can cross reference quality of life in America with my former country where I had true freedom that Americans would never have and I can say – we Yugoslavs lived like Kings after WWII for many decades and Americans live now like the Slaves.

What happened to the “land of the brave”?

Keep up the great work!
