Israel's PM insists Iran's nuclear program remains dangerous, and calls for unity against it.US rates are reduced for the third time in this quarter.
The US Federal Reserve cuts interest rates from 4.5% to 4.25% to steer the US away from recession. Wishful thinking. African Muslims go bezerk and blow up anything in sight in Algiers, mostly UN personnel. Bad move.
OK, so I live in a country that has been at war with whoever continuously since it's inception. There was always war. May it be the Brits, First and Second World War, the Koreans, the Vietnamese, various South American entities, Nicaragua, Panama, Guatemala and so on ... and of course now Iraq and Afghanistan.
What does this mean?
It means that 6 million Jews were killed by Hitler's regime and that we (the US) now in response "suck dick" to whatever Israel wants, forever.
This move is sucking this country dry.
Nothing against Israel, but the US has to finally find its own priorities if it wishes to survive as a nation. So the Ohlmar guy, the PM of Israel, shouts out loud about Iran which in response will make the US government spend some more money for that state, mostly weapons - taxpayer money mind you.
The US is selling out.
Fiat, an Italian car maker will establish a factory in America, others will follow suit because the Dollar is worth shit anymore and therefore labor is cheap. All interest cuts from the Feds will not cure that issue. We are now facing a recession, you better believe it.
And then there is the present attack on UN personell in Algiers, but maybe that's an entirely different story. Who knows.
All I know is that if the US is to survive gracefully, she needs to cut off spinal cords with Israel, retract all engagement in the Middle East.
Then, perhaps ... the US Dollar will again be equal the Euro.
Until this will happen, it will sink to oblivion and not only recession but also depression will be on its way.
Face it.
Ciao, Lukas.

Hi Lukas,
Did you ever read Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson? The lead character is called Hiro Protagonist, a young guy who shares a living space in a storage unit (future housing solution), and works as a delivery guy for Uncle Enzo's Pizzas. If the pie isn't delivered in 20 minutes Uncle Enzo helicopters to the wronged customer and personally delivers cash in apology and a fresh pizza. You really don't want to know what happens to the delivery guy if the boss has to leave the comfort of his home for this reason.

The point I'm attempting to make here is that in the time frame of the novel, the US has been completely taken over by its creditors. Since the US couldn't pay its debts international corporations own the towns and cities block by block.

I'm wondering if we're going to see this happen sooner rather than later.

Glad you found a solution to your problem and hope it works longterm.

It will feel good to be just one of the guys, instead of the all-powerful bully that has to be in charge (after the empire slides). Don't forget, Britain, France, Spain and others have had a fling in the past.

As for Israel, the US is using them as much as supporting them. They get to be the little bully that has the big bully pulling their strings.

Best for the season man. Don't get too stuck in politics when you can drink, eat and be merry...
