Yep, to add to the Germany anger...

Analysis: Germany fears social unrest

He added that the most recent predictions could be compared to the economic situation in the early 1930s, which helped bring Adolf Hitler's Nazi Party to power.

Isn't that great?

From China gold reserves apparently doubled...

The U.S. has the world’s biggest gold holdings at 8,134 tons, followed by Germany with 3,413 tons, World Gold Council data show. France has 2,487 tons and Italy 2,452 tons, while the IMF has 3,217 tons, according to the council.

Are these numbers really true? The US holding 8134 tons of gold? Seriously?

Selling all this gold at today's price would mean 237 billions $$... not that much.

China should at least get over 9000 tons of gold. With their huge reserves of $$... they should accelerate the pace of buying useful stuff... Like buying everything in metals and futures in food. IMO that's what I would do. Then convert my industry to something useful to move from cheap stuff to sell to the US. Then when the industry is converted and my reserves of currency in something useful, stop buying US treasuries altogether and let the US fall where they may. Let Japan and the EU buy toxic US treasuries if they want.

Healines at the Market Oracle:

Financial Crisis Opportunities Amidst The Greatest Wealth Transfer In History

In G7 capitals and financial centers, Public Servants and their elite Banksters - both central and money center banks and investment brokers - nervously tell their clients to wait for the inevitable recoveries, along with a chorus from the elite media stooges to fool the citizens and investors of their cluelessness. Neither the Chicago School nor Keynes can explain what is unfolding, and in the Austrian School everything is and has been predictable. Why are the first two considered mainstream? Because in both schools of thought GOVERNMENT is the answer rather than the problem. For the mainstream, the problems can always be solved by borrow, print, lend and spend.

What? No way to borrow, print, lend, and spend our way out?

Oh and this nifty chart...

As incomes are NOT sufficient to repay the debt, significant debt restructuring must take place and losses realized. However, very little, if almost NONE of the debt restructuring has yet occurred. Let’s take a look at the mountain of debt going all the way back to the inception of the Federal Reserve. The final severing of gold from the US currency at Breton Woods II in 1971 was the LATEST betrayal of the American people by Public Servants at that time since fiat money was constitutionally PROHIBITED and contrary to the constitution:

Swine flu epidemic fear grows, world on alert

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Governments around the world rushed on Sunday to check the spread of a new type of swine flu that has killed up to 81 people in Mexico and infected around a dozen in the United States.

Mexicans huddled in their homes while U.S. hospitals tracked patients with flu symptoms and other countries imposed health checks at airports as the World Health Organization warned the virus had the potential to become a pandemic.

The epidemic has snowballed into a monster headache for Mexico, already grappling with a violent drug war and economic slowdown, and has quickly become one of the biggest global health scares in years.

Can someone please tell me why there is no info on the last few years Tokyo motor show?? I thought it was the biggest in the world but it looks as though it's vanished.

Why is this being censored. Perhaps the electric car was perfected and they don't want us to know? Is this why they hit Japan with the earthquake?

If there was a way and a reason, that would be one that I would buy.

I think the banking oil PTB conglomerate sees the electric car as the end to their current reign of terror over the common man.

If people only knew the real cost of oil. If people only knew the real cost of our disposable society of planned obsolescence.

If the U.S. was to experience widespread bankruptcy, a hole lot of billionaire would lose all off their money.

Wipe out all debt! Heck, most of it was created by nothing but deceptive con jobs.
