bah....and still you post no content....
If thats the case lamebrain then why are you posting on a thread
started by me ?

Whilst on the subject of "content" Ive noticed that your all posts
consist either of cut'n'paste neocon lies, ludicrous accusations that
nearly everyone else and most political parties are socialist, childish
and unfunny playground insults, or completely unintelligible gibberish.
Your pomposity and pseudo-intellectualism was spotted a long time ago.

When are you going to post anything of substance lardy ?

because the combination of your vacuous posts with your
unrealistic (alleged) self-image interests me....
that eg is why i keep asking you the question you keep dodging....

you said nothing again...

you see, you're still dodging.....
40 word 'sentences' of empty babble do not distract me from the
ongoing fact that you are avoiding your 'issues'

i quote two parts of your babble
You are very funny absurdalard. "Funny peculiar" not "funny hah-hah" and now we have from you...
unfunny playground insults
even that you had to copy....with an added 'unfunny' and 'insults'
i don't find your posts 'unfunny'...i find them incredible from outside
an over cute 2 year old...
i don't find them 'insulting'....i just find them 'ludicrous' from an
apparent adult
that's a good part of why i am posting to your very own personal fred....

but still you don't answer
c'mon creepy....be useful.....

as you've probably forgotten by now i'll repeat it for you....

what is interesting is your apparent belief that your infant playground
comment would raise your credibility above.....
well, an infant playground......

why would you possibly believe such a thing?

that's the question i want you to answer if you can concentrate for just
a little moment...

Apocalyptic prediction in todays Observer........

Alphabet of global downturn

Financier-turned-economic pundit Jim Mellon sees no reason to be
optimistic about the world's financial future

Sunday September 25, 2005
The Observer


The unwelcome arrival of Katrina and Rita in the US has swept away
illusions about American society. The competence of the authorities,
the standard of living of many of its people, the fabric of the
country's infrastructure - all have been cast in doubt by the storms'
effects. Third World scenes of starvation, looting and rampage have
emphasised the fine line between ordered society and the law of the
jungle. No country is ever that many steps away from anarchy and chaos.
The same is true of financial markets. Although a natural optimist, I
am going to make a prediction that is almost apocalyptic. In a short
time - a few years at most - the rich West and Japan will have a
terrible shock. Living standards will fall precipitously, companies
will fail en masse and established institutions will find themselves in
financial peril. Asset prices - particularly those of houses - will
fall dramatically in some countries, notably the US and UK, and world
trade conditions will deteriorate significantly.

Worse, global tensions will rise and China will not only be a threat to
Italian sock and bra manufacturers, but a potential military threat to
the Pax Americana.

Interesting article... Thanks..!

It reflects how I feel about what we are seeing in the world. The
Katrina/Rita storms really put the hook in me; they opened many
people's eyes almost as if by 'Providence.' It makes me really lean a
lot more toward the multiple global warming scenarios, and I'm seeing
many more related stories about this problem which George Bush and
Company are turning a blind eye.

Some of those related stories are alarming to say the least.

I think more immediately these two '100-year' storms point toward the
Bush family's perspective towards poor people in general, and the
International Conservative model toward the plight of those who are
unfortunate, less well off than elites in power.

The double whammy storms, especially in New Orleans, were surly a
bad-breath moment for George W. Bush and the rest of the
Republican/Conservative political-complex still aligned with Bush's
brand of Pax Americana/gunboat politics. These two storms clearly point
to the fragility of local and regional oil distribution networks, over
indulgence in 'nation-building' politics, and how in the course of two
weeks the whole world could suffer gravely from the effects of merely
two local storms somewhere on the planet.

The irony is Bush actually came off looking rather okay after the
second storm did so much less than expected. It kind of gave credence
to the federal government's lack of response to the first storm,
Katrina. But that doesn't excuse how the whole thing was handled by G.
W. Bush, flying over, commenting about how "doubly" bad it must be on
the ground from onboard Air Force One, right after Katrina hit. This
guy is a disaster when it comes to human empathy and his lack of
demonstrable intellect. Which doesn't add much confidence to world
financial markets.

I'm concerned about the debt the U.S. is running up and how America is
going into deep debt to of all nations China. I am concerned with the
frailty of global oil reserves, and how politicians are reluctant to
make any real shifts from business-as-usual politics. Based on Britain
and Tony Blair's politics the UK will get sucked down the drain right
after the U.S. loses its footing. That's something to worry about on
both side of the Atlantic.

I think the article is quite right about how this will all come falling
down around us soon enough and many of us everyday people will suffer
for the lack of real leadership from national and international
leaders. Politicians these days are too afraid to do anything because
of how the 'polls' run the way they think. Back in the days of
Churchill and FDR at least some politicians stepped forward and were
willing to express what they truly thought -- but not today.
