how can we all help to accelerate this, maybe this will kick the UK government into lowering welfare benefit and house prices. And if not it's always good to see dismay and unrest.

How are they going to lower house prices?

Does the US government own all the houses?

House prices are fixed by the simple law of supply and demand - apart from interest rates, that has little to do with government.

accelerate?

are you morally bankrupt? 'Cause if the finanical system collapses (let's hope the insurance don't go bell up) we'll all be effected. Do you want that?

If it happens, the welfare state will increase because many citizens will suddenly become dependent on the government.

I don't know. I took my mother to our bank today, the main branch downtown... and they had all the doors locked down except one with signs on them saying employee access only, need a code. Now this may mean nothing, but I have to say, it made me uneasy. I've never seen that before. Even if you want to get your money out, you'll just get a cashier's check, not cash.

Are you serious?

I think that view may be a tad simplistic.

If you have a read, you'll find there's a bit more to it than that.

US Bank was open today. I was surprised when I phoned, so we went down there. They said most banks were closed today.

My only point was, I've never seen all the doors locked but one.

Wait for the bounce back?

There should be one at some stage if the "money people" have as tight a grip of it as they'd like us to believe.

Pretty soon that TV is going to stop showing your favourite programme and the dreaded voice will say;
"My fellow americans,
...................."
"I have no idea what all this means - good luck"

You wanna accelerate this? Withdraw all your money from the bank.
That should help. If everyone does this you're gonna have a nice big crash.

While the US is on holiday this Monday,
the rest of the worlds markets are falling

look at just the 'Asia/Pacific' indices here; finance.yahoo.com...

at 11:54 i did a mental calculation and were all were down an average 3%


[long interlude for shopping at a home supply store]


it's now 6:11 PM, so i'm not certain where the world markets finally closed at....Up or Down
but i'm suspecting down----just like the US markets will do on Tuesdays the 22nd of January mstock market....
(the democrat debate is tonight at the Palace Theatre here in myrtle beach, & most of the hand held placards lining the streets are in support of 'Hillary"--

You'll be living in the slums if you stay in the city.

Solution: Leave. Move to the country.

I only see this as a positive thing. Why can't you all think outside the economy for once and see humans are destroying the planet faster than it can repair it? The Earth needs to repair itself.

I think we have two more days of huge sell off's.

US will have its turn tomorrow, after the holiday, because of the panic around the world. But it cannot get any worse, the markets are reaching their bottoms.

Dow future is -4%

If Japan opens at -7% and the sell off continues, then the Dow future is going to drop even more.

Very intersting indeed, since thats where Maurice Strong calls home and his agenda is to make China the next super power




One of the People of the Republic of China's biggest boosters, Strong believes that China will someday soon replace the United States as a superpower.
