The imperialist “bailout bill” and its communist roots

08-10-2008 09:33

Regarding the current trillion-dollar “bailout bill” that has stricken the US and is threatening the EU countries - especially the UK - at present, there is an important fact to remember:
The main reason why the former communist system in Europe could exist while it existed: because the communist regimes and their banks were continuously rescued by a long series of “bailout bills”. They survived because they were kept alive by the global financial-political oligarchy; by the very same oligarchy that is at present regulating the global economy and which is ultimately responsible for the current crisis.

Ironically, the very same oligarchy that has been driving the world-economy toward a final collapse is at present blackmailing and threatening the world-economy with a final collapse, if it is not allowed to continue its course to drive world-economy into collapse.

US Real Estate: From Goldmine To Money Pit Mortgage Backed Securities and Derivatives are Flawed and Failing

06-10-2008 06:02

The mortgage debt problem is simple really, it has been a total mis-appropriation of equity. The equity lost on flat screen TV's, boats, new cars, vacations, and other living expenses; is equity lost forever. This loss of equity spent on consumer goods and expenses is a pyramid scheme of hyper-capitalism that is flawed and failing. Equity not spent on the property the equity comes from, is equity lost forever, a mis-appropriation of funds, and inappropriate; it is a failing economic model.

The Carbon Trust: State Sponsored Greenwashing (With Help From Greenpeace)

02-10-2008 14:01

I have a confession to make: about 18 months ago, when I was still part of the economic machine, I spent some time calculating the carbon footprint of the company I worked for. To help me, I used the guides provided by the Carbon Trust a, what I thought then, fairly reliable and objective agency of the UK Government working for, I thought at the time, reducing the overall carbon emissions of the UK.

Why they are getting away with it.

01-10-2008 21:22

There is a powerful mood amongst the working class against bailing out the rich. It is so strong it defeated the bail out. The problem is there is no vehicle such as a mass workers' party to counter the ideological offensive of capital and through which this mood could channel itself and ultimately produce a more lasting and obvious alternative.

The Ideological War Continues

01-10-2008 20:50

The capitalists are frantically trying to save their system. The ideological war is intense, "there will be catastrophe" if the working class doesn't agree to take on more debt. But the working class doesn't want to bail out the swindlers. The first vote failed as no one wants to be blamed. They'll add a few crumbs and likely get it passed with help from the Labor leaders who are wedded to capitalism and refusing to offer an alternative. But this shock has already had a significant effect on consciousness.

BBC News website political bias?

01-10-2008 09:11

Is 'Have Your Say' on the BBC news website, a) subtly (¬ so subtly) 'moderated' to set and promote a right wing aganda? Is it being hijacked by right wing organisations from the tory party outwards - with multiple posting and recommendation being easily acomplished.
Seeing as this is funded by ordinary people, don't they have a right to fair use of their resources?
ie; Not being used to create politically biased whispering campaigns?
