1. Poor Japan.
I don’t think they realised just what they were signing in that treaty that day on the US warship. I think the small print must have read “Japan, will in future, will be an unending line of credit for US Bonds no matter what the price”.
2. Business everywhere seems to have accumulated more middlemen everywhere. There are so many people making money from passing on work, earning 25% and doing absolutely nothing. The internet is changing that quickly though.
Everywhere I say.

Love the horizontal stripes and the red shirt! Very nice. I see LA agrees with you.
But don’t forget the earthquakes.
Stacy – careful with those Daily Mirror news items. The Daily Mirror make up much of the content of every print-run.
They and their main competitor in the UK, The Sun, – owned by that wonderfully honest and upstanding chap Robert Maxwell, make up stories just as freely as the Federal Reserve create money out of thin air.
I’m concerned why those who are truth-seekers/exposers as you and Max are quote what they write, other than to make a point about the lies they print – which isn’t the point of your clip.
@SilverPorno – it’s the Daily Mail and, dude, we look at metaphors and analogies for the global financial system; last week I used Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, I believe that is a complete work of fiction perhaps you didn’t know that, but it doesn’t matter either way as it is the metaphor that matters; nevertheless, in this particular incidence, re: the drug in question in this article, one of the guys in Mike Maloney’s office where we recorded this is from Colombia and had only just returned from Medellin a few days before and he said that this was a big story there and that it was actually not so much blown in their face but put in a drink or some form of liquid and spilled on to you at a nightclub
Sorry Stacy – I did mean the Daily Mail. It’s as bad as the Sun and the Mirror. Twas a mistype from me.
Sure, I understand how you use metaphors and analogies. Of course that’s a great way to present an item.
Just getting back to the Daily MAIL article you quoted – ok, if a chap at Mike Maloney’s office has direct experience of it I understand why you’ve used it.
BUT I hope you get my point as well, and I’ve seen you quote Daily Mail articles a few times in your KR’s, The Daily Mail just make things up. They are totally unreliable. They love to make up news – from around the world especially, knowing that the further away the “news” comes from, the less likely they are to be discovered as having made it all up.
Sun, Mirror, Mail (and the olde News of the World) – all are gutter-press in the UK.
By the way – do you really believe such a drug exists? Really?

@SilverPorno – well doctors and scientists can tell you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scopolamine
There are apparently some urban myth sites that say it is an urban myth but the facts on the ground are that 1 in 5 poison victims in Bogota have scopolamine poisoning and it is being used in Thailand and Norway also had 20 people hospitalized with psychosis after ingesting it; I’ve had friends who had rohyponol who I saw out and about and seemingly normal (though a bit slurry and odd which I put down to being drunk) and they didn’t remember a single thing about the night, so it doesn’t seem absurd to think it’s possible to be walking around and apparently functioning but not having any control.
perhaps we need some debunkers of urban myth sites? they also called naked shorting an urban myth; that’s why ‘naked short selling’ on wikipedia was LOCKED down for several years and is still considered a ‘controversial’ topic . . . because some financial journalists claimed it was a myth, particularly in relation to Overstock.com; well yesterday, Goldman Sachs’ lawyers accidentally released the email evidence that they were in fact naked shorting the company all that time: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/blogs/taibblog/accidentally-released-and-incredibly-embarrassing-documents-show-how-goldman-et-al-engaged-in-naked-short-selling-20120515
Nevertheless, I will bet you $10 that naked short selling will still be called a hoax despite the firm admitting to it in black and white. Because once that hoax, conspiracy or urban legend meme is out there, it’s hard to ever break.
1. Poor Japan.
Uh, no. Not so poor. Read this book:
Gold Warriors: America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold
I forget exactly who, but some kind individual on M&S’s forum here suggested this book so I got it, read it, and it is a real eye-opener as to how Japan got so powerful over the last couple of centuries. They weren’t exactly acting like a bunch of saints, let’s put it that way.
Hey Stacy, naked short selling, that’s not a myth. I’m not doubting you and Max. My brain cells are still concerned about scopolamine. Anyone can post to Wikipedia, and elsewhere on the MSM.. etc.
I’m not taking you up on the bet though.
1. because 10 dollars spent on silver is going to be worth a lot more – sometime soon perhaps.
2. because of course you’re right about naked short selling being called a hoax, conspiracy, and so will be covered up – as long as it can be. When the currencies collapse, it won’t have had anything to do with naked short selling, eh….
I’ll bet you 10 dollars you quote the daily mail again sometime soon.

—but some kind individual on M&S’s forum here suggested this book so I got it—-
yeah, that was me …. fascinating book!
Is the background computerized? who are all those stiffs working back there? They need more minorities.
Someone needs to spark up a “hooter” ! why do they need so many chimps working there? is that the place you go when you die?
looks like hell..
It is pronounced: Sco-pol-amine
As you referenced, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scopolamine, it is an old fashion drug that obtains its effects from natural products (plant genus Scopolia).
what a horrible place to work.
Did someone mention Mike Malony? lol as I predicted and which KR is he going to be on again?
@Max and Stacy
I hope the guest was wearing something white.
RN x 20 yrs and I know my drugs. Scopolamine is an antiemitic (anti-nausea) given intravenously or intramuscular. Also in patch form for “motion sickness” sold over the counter, been in use for many years. I personally prefer a little “kush” to soothe my tummy.
