BRC doesn't surprise me, but IS does a little. Maybe it's time to side with the Paks.

I'm not really part of the It's All Obama's Fault Brigade. I'm part of the It's Obama's Fault If He Was Anywhere Near It Brigade.

Hopefully nothing happens to Iran that would jeopardize their ability to provide oil to customers.


Earthquakes or Super Volcanoes, that sort of thing.


That could reduce the cost effectiveness of certain call centers, which might then need to be re-outsourced.

As of right now, here are the scenarios I can see, in order of certainty:

I will vote against Santorum.
If Obamacare is NOT overturned, I will vote against Obama.
If Obamacare is overturned, I'll probably vote for Paul (write-in). Or any old 3rd party if there is one on the ballot.

I'll try to simplify.

No Santorum. No Obamacare. No Obama. 3rd Party.

Two years later, and the Obama Administration has done nothing to mitigate this. Yet another major foreign policy disaster by the Obama Administration, which has all but completely ignored relations with the rest of the Western Hemisphere, and another major disaster for the U.S. economy that Democrats will undoubtedly blame on Republicans somehow when it bears its nasty fruit.

BRICS set up bank to counter Western hold on global finances

(Reuters) - Leaders of the BRICS emerging market nations launched a $100 billion development bank and a currency reserve pool on Tuesday in their first concrete step toward reshaping the Western-dominated international financial system.

The bank aimed at funding infrastructure projects in developing nations will be based in Shanghai, and India will preside over its operations for the first five years, followed by Brazil and then Russia, leaders of the five-country group announced at a summit.

They also set up a $100 billion currency reserves pool to help countries forestall short-term liquidity pressures.

The long-awaited bank will be called the New Development Bank.

It is the first major achievement of the BRICS countries - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - since they got together in 2009 ...

What is to be worried about?
If a country gets into the shits and they go to the world bank for a 'loan' they usually face some strict criteria as the world bank funders do not want to lose £

Now they have a 2nd option and one of two things will happen
1) the conditions and rates the world bank sets might come down due to competition (I doubt it)
2) the brics bank goes bankrupt as those countries that struggle to get credit from the world bank goto brics... They got a bad rating for a reason


Also not a lot Obama could do to stop this ..

I think this is beyond Obama, but he surely didn't do anything to make it better, while wearing knee-caps on the corner of Wall and Broad St. He had his mouth full. :lol:
All he did was plunder american middle-class so that his pimps can have even more cash.
As for the need to have "another" bank, we can't have only one side printing money cheaper then writing numbers on post-it notes. :wink:

Strict criteria? Not losing money? I thought the World Bank regularly forgave most of the loans they gave out. If not most, they certainly "forgive" an awful lot of debt to countries which never had a chance of repaying.

It's consequent with the pattern that if you give finger to money masters you have to go away. Sacrifice some cattle, blame it on the people you wan't to get rid of, lemmings follow, profit.

Kurt Nimmo's only redeeming characteristic is that there is a small element of truth to his paranoid ranting. That and the entertainment value. It's generally a good idea to take anything you see on InfoWars or WorldNetDaily with an even larger grain of salt than necessary for MSNBC, Fox News, and the Obama White House.

Even larger? Or smaller?
That you should question it is common sense, that you should question it more then proven propaganda channels is clinging at best, indoctrination at worst. Question Everything. :D

Latest "play" in the media was that now everybody on the planet will be HAPPY that NSA exists, because now NSA is going to find out who shot the missile. Haha :lol:
Yeah, infowars are lying more than MSNBC/FOX/CNN.

They are shameless and infuriating. Nevertheless, this clown is just as badL when Obama declared his first national emergency, Nimmo said martial law was imminent, and that people should take measures to avoid being rounded up for internment. Now you tell me who's reality distortion field is more dense. :lol:

More to the point, though: I don't see anybody here quoting the NSA as some kind of fountain of truth, whereas you are quoting Nimmo.

Yes I am quoting him, you are interpreting that I am quoting him as the fountain of truth. What is truth? That the Kissinger and Kurzweil shall prevail and achieve greatest "triumph" of the western civilisation, meaning greatest defeat of the planet, and realise that they are monkeys too?
If I can offer you some Nimmo as a side dish to your soup of mainstream media, so be it. At least you will have varied diet and not think in terms of D vs R. I think that's a progress. :)

As I said, there is a glimmer of truth to what he says. Unfortunately, in order to be listened to among our screaming, sensationalist news media and by our overstimulated, ADD-afflicted populace, benumbed to falsehood by their Ministry of Truth, Hope and Change, one must engage in hyperbole, its drawback being the loss of most or all of one's credibility.
