    or perhaps it is the combined impact of the three?
    true colors come shinning through or hacked colors
    muddy the waters?

    In the U.S., Yahoo just pumped out an article “3 Reasons Why Low Inflation Hurts Consumers”.
    This is the mantra being blasted into the media by the IMF as well.
    The world suffers from “low-flation”, which hurts the economy because it reduces demand.
    These bleep-holes contend that when prices of goods don’t rise fast enough, demand decreases.
    In other words, they’ve inverted the demand curve and say it’s really upsloping not downsloping.
    The cure is for inflation to be between 2-3% per year and then all will be right with the world.
    We need more inflation.
    The figure of 2-3% is plucked out of thin air by well paid academics like Krugman, the Fed, and the IMF.
    Stable purchasing power is now an enemy of the state!
    The Fed has rewritten its mandate from “to ensure price stability” claiming it really means ensuring inflation rate stability.
    Inflation is good for you, stable purchasing power is a sin.
    Be prepared to see this mantra everywhere.

    These criminals will never stop printing and lying.

    @BK:

    You are exactly right. Everyone has been brainwashed relating to inflation/deflation. Every time I hear an advertisement that housing prices are up 20% and it is touted as great news I just shake my head and wonder why debt pushers are allowed to command our economy. Deflation in many ways is a GREAT thing in creating as you state, price stability.

    Everything is upside down which makes me wonder when it will all flip back to reality.

    Great post BK.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Bank Of America Reports Q1 Loss On Massive Legal Charge, Ongoing Operations Disappoint As NIM Tumbles

    ended it for me. hmmm …..
    was it the gene burnett single, james joyce referenced by
    the clancy brothers, ellen brown, or was it just
    me and bank of america? anyway… i’m done there.
    peace and freedom of speech, somewhat compatible on the
    virtual webs, not necessarily everywhere.
    i’m still, briefly, holding out that there was some sort
    of security glitch that was tripped? or some such
    excuse but as it stands the new “tyler” nearly instantly
    zapped my account and deleted the aforementioned links
    i had posted, the last being the clancy brothers doing
    “finnegan’s wake”. so i will assume the new “tyler”
    may be no fan of either irish music, gene burnett, blindman,
    james joyce or ellen brown; or some combination?

    r.i.p. mr. michael ruppert.
    but , fuck you, in a dubious, gentle loving and
    common way, for giving in to the bastards
    and letting them into your heart to spoil
    your personal heart, body and mind integration.
    one can not take the evil shit to heart
    and survive, jumpers take notice.
    do not forego the ever present field,
    life and love. do not be blinded by
    the scams . ongoing ……………
    peace , simple. means peace and live,
    love life and resume self. peace
    ohmm it out, ohm it out ….
    simple fun at first. life .. live ..
    yup.
    you ay see that “it” is entirely subjective
    and ultimately irrelevant? and that is a good
    thing! freedom and decay, swinging on a swing
    where no one visits or sees a thing.

  7. blindman says:

    live or die, up to you.
    making that decision for someone else?
    well then, who the hell do you think
    you are, god? owner of god? ok.
    there you go. “splendid isolation” ..
    enjoy ….

    oh, no one could even guess ….

    ?
    “everything means less than zero …” e.c.
    .
    ” Calling Mr. Oswald with the swastika tattoo
    There is a vacancy waiting in the English voodoo
    Carving “V” for “vandal” on the guilty boy’s head
    When he’s had enough of that, maybe you’ll take him to bed
    To teach him he’s alive before he wishes he was dead.

    (CHORUS)
    Turn up the TV, no one listening will suspect
    Even your mother won’t detect it, so your father won’t know
    They think that I’ve got no respect but
    Everything means less than zero
    Hey, oo hey-ey
    Hey, oo hey-ey

    Oswald and his sister are doing it again
    They’ve got the finest home movies that you have ever seen
    They’ve got a thousand variations, every service with a smile
    They’re gonna take a little break and they’ll be back after a while
    Well, I hear that South America is coming into style.

    (CHORUS)

    A pistol was still smoking, a man lay on the floor
    Mr. Oswald said he had an understanding with the law
    He said he heard about a couple living in the USA
    He said they traded in their baby for a Chevrolet
    Let’s talk about the future, now we’ve put the past away

    (CHORUS)

    Hey, oo hey-ey
    Hey, oo hey-ey

    inflation is essential for the
    current structure of the “money”
    /debt system. how many times need
    this be pointed out before more
    than a “handful” of people in the world get it?
    .
    “The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863.
    .
    “The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.” William Paterson, founder of the Bank of England in 1694, then a privately owned bank
    .
    The real truth of the matter is,as you and I know, that a financial
    element in the large centers has owned the government ever since
    the days of Andrew Jackson… -Franklin D. Roosevelt
    (in a letter to Colonel House, dated November 21, 1933)
