Here is a comment I made in another thread (again 2 years ago).
The question in the thread title was "Where did the money go" This post starts with that question in mind.
"Where did the money go?"
You don't want to know.
You don't want to know.
If I tell, the urge to destroy this post
will overwhelm any use the information may bring.
How can I be so confident saying this?
Surely everyone is different, so it is impossible for everyone
to hate or disagree with what I write.
My answer to that, is no. Not in this case. There are too many enchanted words,
to much agenda oriented political posturing, and too little real education
for anyone to hear what I'm saying without making sure I'm dead first.
Then why am I writting this?
Because I am going to tell you where the money went.
But then I'm going to log off and not come back for a week.
Maybe two. Maybe not till after christmass.
You know why?
Cause I don't want to hear it.
There is no reason for me to sit here
and experience a scorched earth policy
against my post, when three years from now
everyone will _know_ this stuff, but till then I'm a heretic.
And when the age of reason finally dawns,
no one weeps for all the burned witches
from the day before.
All those guys indicted at the top had no clue that Enron was a front for the Black Budget of our intel communities. After the new york disaster they
had to reposition quickly and the money was moved. The guys who took the fall probably still don't know what really happened.
Everyone who lost a house they were living in was because no one is paid a fair wage anymore. Used to be that if someone got married ... they got a
raise. If someone had a child ... they got a raise. If someone bought a house ... they got a raise. This entire, well publicized episode is just a
clever way of not admitting that divorce is profitable for women, and women who flip houses can proove to each other that they are better off without
a man. Call me any name you want. The housing bubble was the extinction line of the extended family.
There is a computer program that can predict the stock market. Let me say that again. There is a computer program that can predict the stock market.
It's almost 20 years old, and still almost no one seems to know about it. If you are not buying a stock that pays dividends, and if you are buying a
stock for any reason other than to recieve dividends, then you are being had. Derivatives are another word for crack coc aine. It is not food. It
is not productive.
What is this all about. Why does the total advertizing budget of the world almost exceed the actual cost of making everything in the world. It's
simple. We stopped watching TV like it was a religion. Remember when the fall sweeps was the big to-do for the Neilson ratings. Well one year, no one
showed up to watch all the new shows that fall. This meant that the broadcasters couldn't charge nearly as much for comercials. Where had all the
people gone? They were on the net, playing online games. A place where advertizers not only had zero penitration, but massively entrenched resistance.
Didn't you ever wonder why there are so many free mmo's now, and only a few websites that can operate without advertizing dollars. Doesn't anyone
remember that a single comercial on a website used to = death for that site. It is not a coincidence that we don't make as much money anymore and have
newfound respect for Madison Avenue.
The one growth industry that America used to have. The one that we were the leaders in. The one that used to be the hope for the future, was destroyed
with a simple smart alec comment. "We have enough problems here on earth." Yeah right. And now that we have abandoned our own futures to fix things
quote here-on-earth end quote, how's that working out?
Have you been through a drive through at a fast food restaurant lately? A line of cars around the building idling and burning gas for a half hour,
while the person in the window is talking on their cell phone. If it costs a company $5,000 to hire, insure, train, uniform, file paperwork on,
manage, feed, and be sensitive to their harrasment fears, but that employee drives off two customers a day. Who never return. Where do you think that
money is going. That's right, it's being spent to provide safe environments for people to text each other. This is the opposite of value added. I
would outsource too. And not because it's cheeper, but because I can't afford bankruptcy. Imigrant labor is a form of outsourcing.
Massive early retirements by doctors was caused by predatory insurance rates. No one remembers that before we had a health care crisis we used to have
doctors who could afford to practice. The small owner opperator Doctors' office has been made extinct by a collusion between politics and insurance
conglomerates. Now we have a bunch of doctors who are nothing but cogs in a system, who join that system weighed down by massive education debts.
Don't get me started on how many people DID NOT receive a penny for their flood insurance after Katrina.
Where is all the money
I worked in a vault. Money deposited is recorded in the red. It is recorded as a negative number. Untill it is loaned out, at interest, it is doing
the bank no good and only constitutes a cost. At the highest levels everyone knows this. I think they like to keep everyone freaked out on purpose.
OMG, if I had a billion in debt I wouldn't know what-to-do.
[color=gold] Look at it this way. You own a carnival. At the entrance your teller sells tickets. Everyone has to buy tickets to ride the
rides. Say the teller is given a spool of 100 tickets. This is recorded at minus one hundred. As cash is taken in and tickets go out, it offsets the
deficit. But as long as the total cash and number of remaining tickets = 100, there is no theft.
Then there is a line of ten people. Fine, and well. Each one can buy ten tickets, ride several rides, loose a few tickets, still have fun. But say
this day there are 100 people in line, and the first ten buy ten tickets each. You now have 90 angry people with crying children who can't get in. So
you give the teller a spool of a thousand tickets. It's now a deficit of 1,100 dollars. And increase of 1100% in debt. Omg omg, chicken little chicken
little. Alert the press. News anchors from around the world converge and announce grimly into the camera "this little carnival is massively in debt by
over a thousand percent." The remaining 90 people in line are happy though, but that's not reported. And strangely enough, people stop showing up for
the carnival. So just at the moment you, the carnival owner, was going to have your best year ever... all your customers stopped comming.
You wana know where the money went?
You burned it when you lost faith in your own country.
All the way back when you said space is too dangerous, or I wana sue my doctor.
So you tell me.
Where did all the value added go?
