My City Needs Money - Can You Bail Us Out?

Mayor Gears' message to Mr. Obama

The areas he wants to develop is in Las Colinas. In the 1980s, Irving developed this area at great cost and let IBM and ZEROX setup office complexes for free. After a time, these corporations were to begin paying taxes. When that time came, they moved to another city for another free lunch. After that, there was quite a flight from the area as other corporations fled.

Since then, the empty buildings have mostly been filled and apartments have gone up, and are filled with residents.

From a Peak Oil perspective, this is a bit sad as I've watched farm and ranch land get gobbled up by concrete over the decades. In ten years, we'll be wanting to get some of that back. At least that large pond (Lake Caroline), can be pumped for irrigation.

Hey, Yo, Wease,
Forgive me if I haven't communicated, altho this might not be such a bad thing.
I am so glad you are still blogging. You have a gift.
You know we go back almost five years. While we may not have seen eye to eye on a couple of issues,(twin tower demolition, one) you have been spot on 90+%.
You are in a group of people(Michael Ruppert, Jeff Rense, Jerry Johnson). who have had a important impact on me. You have never been afraid to call it as you see it and you saw it from the ground.(reality).
Have you ever commed with JJ?
Most if not all of the things we predicted have or are coming to pass.
Hey, I am going to go back through your posts, I would like to blog back at you.
You wrote this on the automaticearth blog:
"So this gets to the meat of the question. There appears to be no facility to take profits earned from derivatives out of circulation. Once paid, those monies inflate the money supply permanently. If unpaid, the money never circulated anyway, so there is no effect on the money supply in circulation."

It is all a flockin illusion.
WTF!!
Did ILLargi ever respond?
I have been preparing(15 years) for much of what is here, and to come and I am still scared awake most nights sans Miller High life.
Shall we record this Nations epitaph?
I just need to Know.
Thank you
If you want to know about me just ask.
Regards
michael, aka fossilfuelfugue

p.s. APB for jerry johnson, no?

Hello Michael!

I can't seem to give up this blogging affliction.

I haven't heard from Jerry in a while.

Illargi responded, but it was the typical financial gobblegook that is intended to obfuscate, rather than clarify. I think she (Illargi is a she, right?), felt the need to respond, but is worried about exposing the limits of her knowledge. She doesn't know the answer.

Of course, I don't think anyone does. It's too complex to model, as the human component is unpredicatable. But balancing the inputs and outputs to see the sum of the system, we see you're right. It's all an illusion.

Keep in mind that a lot of this stuff is on a second set of books, unregulated, and unbounded by law. If the banks wanted to unwind this on their own, they could barter the debt back and forth until it cancelled out.

But that's not what they want to do. They each want to win. The only way to win, when you're being soundly beaten, is to cheat. That's where Paulson comes in with the bailout. He's picking he winners.

I probably have an email address for Jerry somewhere. Emal me and if I find it, I'll send it back to you.

I get scared blogging sometimes, thinking the fascists will come whisk me away to Gitmo for speaking out against them, wease never wavers.

Thanks for responding,
a second(or third,or fourth etc) set of books sounds alot like what an illusionist might incorporate.

"It is all an illusion".
I hope I have not given that imprression.
I have taken blocks and rounds of metals and other materials and have
made tools and machines of various complexities. This I know is real.
I work the soil with my hands and my tools. I plant and I nurture and this I know is real.
The flora and the fauna that have existed around me (for the most part) are real and have existed long before I was born.
The illusion, is the "Money". Who, What, When, Where, How? This is the illusion, and it is practiced by some of the oldest sorcery known to Man.
If it is alright with you I thought I would begin my Epitaph of America the Beautiful on your blog. You and anyone one in the vicinity are welcome to add too, (lighten up Alpo, the boogeyman won't get you :)
I also hope to add to it, for the final words cannot be transcribed yet

Here lies our America, the once Beautiful.
Though the Flag may be Fringed with gold,
America died with a tarnished blackheart.
From sea to shining plastic filled sea, our birthplace, is a smoke shadow of its former self.
Lawless and violent, America died the way it lived.
...
Best
regards,
michael
