This entire nation, the entire world, is ultimately running after money. The amount of influence money has on people has always fascinated me. You forget almost everything while in its shadow.

I used to think that the world was shaped by love. I'm sorry, but that's nonsense. It's shaped by money. Money, avarice and greed - these are the three main constants.

Why did retirees buy Lehman certificates? Because Aunt Anna said that she had something that was earning 4 percent interest, and suddenly everyone else wanted it.

(Hilmar Kopper in an Interview end 2011)

- never judge
- don't live on other people money (on the long term)
- never drink cheap wine (drink plenty - but good stuff)
- give, give, give
- take, take, take
- open your heart - be free
- work
- shine
- cry, dance, sing
- be!
- kiss!
- explore
- participate
- enjoy! - over all ... enjoy!!!

Beim Kürzungsvolumen liegt man kaum noch auseinander, es geht nur noch um einige Milliarden Dollar an Differenz. Bei einem Gesamtvolumen von 3,7 Billionen Dollar eigentlich keine große Summe.

The monetary aspect is the only real power ruling of physical individuals. The rest is unconscious mind control including learning of so-called economics. Everything else, especially history, is written/carried out by the paid servants of the power/money-brokers.

So they naturally tell us lies about it, and also tell us lies of everything else to blind us.

Money issuing has to be managed differently - as it is managed now it is like some collective suicide coming sooner or later.

If you want to count from 1 to 1,000,000, what do you think how long will it take you?

Make a guess! hours, days? how many?

Well, here's a bit of math to show:

Since counting from 1 to 10 takes only 5 sec. but counting from let's say 999,820 to 999,829 takes more than 10 sec. I checked how much time I need to count from 500,000 to 500,009 ... which took me about 10 seconds. So, basically we could say that we need 1 second per counting 1 number - which equals to 1 million seconds.

That doesn't sound too bad, does it?

Well, 1,000,000 sec divided by 60  to get to the minute, divided by 60 to get to the hour, divided by 24 to figure out how many days ... results in approx. 11.5 days.

That is, if you count 24 hrs non-stop for 11.5 days!

Since one has to eat, drink, pause, sleep, etc. let's say we count "only" 12 hrs a day.

That makes it 23 days to count from 1 to 1 million!

to continue the beauty... how long will it take you to count to 1 billion?

well, that's 23,000 days ... divided by 365 to come to years ... we get to approx. 63 years!

63 years! to count 1 to 1,000,000,000 ... (that's a lot of time)
So, basically, if we could get the politicians and bankers to count the debt they're piling up ... we had a wonderful relaxed time all the way.........

...and every time they come up with new ideas about how to keep us save and protect us and get more money out of us and so on .... we could say: "just keep on counting!" - "dude!" :)

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) is a committee of bank supervisory authorities from the G10 (i.e. the wealthiest 10 nations). They meet regularly at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Switzerland and are in the process of putting together the international agreement known as the Basel Capital Accord (BCA). This sets bank supervision, risk-based capital and disclosure requirements for banks operating internationally.

While such an Accord might seem rather obscure and irrelevant to the general public, this is perhaps more a feature of the general ignorance, secrecy and complexity surrounding the operations of the international banking and monetary systems than anything else. but...

This Accord is of particular interest because of

Increasing Power of International Creditors over Debtors. International banks affected by BCA create the bulk of the money we all use in day-to-day living, especially the US currency which is the backbone of the international monetary system. The power of international creditors, particularly those responsible for money creation in the US Dollar, over debtors is increasing. This, in combination with the collapse of the gold standard and the original Bretton Woods structure in 1971, as well as the trend for western corporations to seek financing outside the banking sector, has lead to increasingly reckless behavior of these bank creditors. This is especially true where they can exercise their "powers" to access "collateral" (real assets) crucial to less powerful debtors - e.g. through IMF Structural Adjustment Programs internationally, and through predatory lending and foreclosures domestically. Such activities are increasing income and wealth gaps globally. Good supervision of, and appropriate capital standards for, powerful creditors can help curtail this recklessness.

Increasing Financial Consolidation: Both domestic and cross-border consolidation of financial services companies is continuing to escalate in the wake of global financial deregulation and the collapse of banks in various countries after financial crises. This is leading to the emergence of huge global "financial empires" domiciled in the same G10 countries that create the "hard currency", dominate institutions such as the IMF and set the rules for international banking. Also, the bigger a financial corporation becomes the more it becomes "too-big-to- fail". Big creditors at the heart of the international financial system are very likely to get bailed out no matter what they do, for their collapse could collapse the entire global financial system. This creates a tremendous "moral hazard" proportional to size and global reach. This further increases the powers of large western creditors over sovereign nations.

This is just an excerpt from a very interesting page I came accross. Read on, if your curiosity has awaken ... BIS...

According to the N.T.Times, the bankers who basically initiated the financial crises ... even though it's you and me, or maybe not particularly you or me ... but the greed of all of us ... well, anyhow, these guys earned bonuses of 18.4 Billion $US in 2008, the year with tremendous losses for many people - and, taking in account what can be expected for this year, for much more damage and financial struggle to many more, more.

This money was given out to an approx. 150.000 bank managers and traders, according to Spiegel online, which divides down to about 122,000 $ per head. Great. 122,000 $ per year means 10,000 per month - average! bonus! - on top of a salery! Wow!

I have the impression, that by now, if a newspaper or magazine mentions an amount with just a 2-digit Billion number, we over-read it already... it needs at least 3 digits to get us stunning, isn't it? Oh, here goes the Citigroup with another xx Billions, ups, Funny Mae, Mac my ass...

Okay, if we look a little bit into it, we have to admit, that without our every one's greed, there wasn't a chance to install a system like this: banks lending out billions and billions and then selling the debt wrapped up in non-transparent packages, so they can lend more billions ... without need for accordingly more funds to cover all this up. And all of this is just possible, because all of us (not all, but many) try to get a share of it, try to make some profit on it...

More, more, more ... profit, profit, profit... greed, greed, greeeeed.....

This helped "these guys" a lot to achieve what they have achieved. So, now we lost a good amount of money. Many jobs are gone and will be gone (forever). Many lives put to struggle. We lost. Some didn't.

And here we go, come our politicians and tell us: We have to help these banks, restore trust (what?? - ah, between banks), we cannot let the economy down. Have to save jobs (car industry), have to "help out" ... for sure just temporarily ... to get back on our feet.

So, after we lost a good amount of money in shares, and some people pulled out of it or are simply out of money, now they use the tax money. All these billions which go into "the economy" come from tax payers, or better, the interest for all this money given out to thugs who ripped us off through all these years, has to be paid with tax payers money. Bye bye education. Bye bye social and health care. Bye bye fairness (did it ever exist?). Bye bye better live...

One can go on and on. It's so ridiculous! If you look at it with some distance, it's unbelievable, truly unbelievable!

But even more shocking is that no one is revolting. No one's crying out loud! No one's crying foul! There are no voices to be heard. No blockades, no demonstrations, No governments replaced, very few managers fired, no public disobedience, no economy related terrorist attacks!

We keep on watching TV. We keep on trusting those guys who put us into this mess to handle the getting out. We keep on getting fat, being bored, getting brain washed every day ... every day!

Well, I can't help you!
But I can stop: trusting, listening, buying things I don't need, supporting "those leaders", believing their words, supporting their reckless blood sucking strategies!
