Sweeps,

I was speaking with a friend yesterday who is in her mid 60's (age) and she said that she is about to put in a safe at her home.

She reckons the system is now becoming so rickety that people with savings are becoming seriously worried that they are risking losing some / much of that money.

This page at the London Daily Telegraph says much the same as your message.

Contagion strikes Italy as Ireland bail-out fails to calm markets
The EU-IMF rescue for Ireland has failed to restore to confidence in the eurozone debt markets, leading instead to a dramatic surge in bond yields across half the currency bloc.

<snip>

"The EU rescue fund cannot handle Spain, let alone Italy," said Charles Dumas, from Lombard Street Research. "We we may be nearing the point where Germany has to decide whether it is willing take on a burden six times the size of East Germany, or let some countries go."

------------------------

This HAS to be the webbot tipping point events being played out, and if I recall correctly Clif talked about a related date in early January - which could be when the system finally implodes.

Simon, in snowy London (and its still falling, plus we are being promised more of the white stuff later this week alongside 35mph gales - if it happens then it will be only the second time I've experienced a true blizzard and a 'white out' in London.)

*Heard much of the same...people talking openly now about taking their cash out of banks before the NEXT thing happens.
...As for WEATHER, it's FROSTY/ICY as Hell here, with SNOW falling in many locals nightly. Temperatures are -3 to -10 degrees all over. The government hasn't the money to supply sand/grit for ANY of the back roads, and having trouble keeping the main roads open too. Schools have now been closed in towns for the last 2 days, because busses can't pick up the students-many living on the back roads.
People in this part of the world and largely unprepared for WINTER. Never see snow tires/spiked treads, or even chains on wheels here.The petrol/gas pumps don't even have gas line ANTI-FREEZE added to their pumps. Interesting. I spent time in MANY areas of real Winter...including Alaska. Things would come to a complete road way 'stand still' if not for residents being Winter saavy and having the right equiptment/'S'

Snow chains may not even be legal there - I think that there would be trouble if used here and they damaged the road surface.

Snow tyres certainly are OK and media reports say that there have been more people than ever asking for them.

People don't prepare here like they do in climates which regularly get severe wintry weather. Such weather is so infrequent here that for a couple of days a year its as easy and cheaper to change one's life to fit in with the weather.

By the way of an example, its Sunday morning and the weather has changed - so already so soon after a few days of disruption te snow has all but thawed and life is back to 'normal'. OK, its still cold, but that is easier to cope with - just wear warmer clothing!

*OK,
...But it looks like we'll be getting a 'BATTERING' on a couple of fronts...the SNOW/ICE/Etc., and the Currancy situation in the EU. Below is a 'Bloomberg Analysis'. Help and good golly/'S'

The most accurate foreign-exchange strategists say the euro’s worst annual performance since 2005 will extend into next year as the region’s sovereign-debt crisis saps economic growth.

Standard Chartered Plc, the top overall forecaster in the six quarters ended Sept. 30 based on data compiled by Bloomberg predicted the euro may weaken to less than $1.20 by mid-2011 from $1.3352 today. Westpac Banking Corp., the second most accurate, is “bearish in the short term,” and No. 3 Wells Fargo & Co. cut its outlook at the end of last week.

The 16-nation currency’s first weekly gain against the dollar since Nov. 5 may prove short-lived amid mounting concern that more nations will need rescues. European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet delayed the end of emergency stimulus measures last week and stepped up government-debt purchases as “acute” market tensions drove yields on Spanish and Italian bonds to the highest levels relative to German bunds since the euro started in 1999.

“We’re going to get a continuation of the problems that Ireland, Portugal, Spain and others are suffering,” said Callum Henderson, Standard Chartered’s global head of foreign-exchange research in Singapore. “The fundamental issue is these are countries that have relatively large debts, large budget deficits, large current-account deficits, they don’t have their own currency and they can’t cut interest rates. The only way they can get out of this is to have significant recessions.”

Sentiment Reverses

Ireland’s budget deficit will rise to more than 32 percent of gross domestic product this year, including the cost of bailing out the nation’s banks, European Commission data from Nov. 29 showed. Spain’s deficit will be 9.3 percent in 2010. Portugal’s total debt will reach almost 83 percent of GDP this year from about 76 percent in 2009, according to the commission.

hmm, a few days ago I saw included in a 'predictions for 2011' list that one country would be leaving the Euro and returning to its previous currency. Alas I don't recall where I saw that list, as then I'd link to it. Anyway, I can think of several nations where the people would like to do this, including Eire and Germany!

*OK,
...But that's one thing...leaving the 'Euro'. How about leaving 'THE EUROZONE' itself? Well I got the Below in an E-mail from some SECURITY folks I know, then scanned it/made it into an image, and put it below here. Now, are these 'friends of mine' nutty/pranksters....well make up you own minds. Fantasy Sci-Fi can do funny interesting things. Hmmm/'S'

1) how come you still have global communications - surely all physical links would have been severed whilst radio / satellite links would not have been established quite so fast...

2) the location means that you are now in the firing line for hurricanes, tornados and an influx of illegal immigrants from neighbouring areas which within a decade would have seen your lifestyles irrevocably changed (will the last person to flee Haiti remember to switch the lights out, bolt the windows and lock the front & rear doors)

3) I say 'would have' above because you are sitting atop of an imminent geological disaster zone, with a sea floor thats cracking up and an unholy mix of oil and gas ready to escape with explosive force from under you

apart from that I wish you good luck / I bet Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy wish they could do likewise.

*Yeah...we'll have a lot of company Simon,
...NOW, how about the WEATHER/CLIMATE having a HUGE effect on the economic collapse continuing?
You can check out the Link below and be horrified...by PROFESSIONAL Climatologists (those convinced that CO2 and MAN have nothing to due with it) who are forecasting 'Long Range' weather thru Feb. 2011. Don't be too envious of Ireland in all this, as parts of 'The Old Sod' will be less effected. Enjoy and stay warm, with shovels and Rock Salt at hand....and this 'prediction' will definitely impact 'commercialism'/economic matters/'S' :D

Sweeps, in today's Telegraph I saw an article about how energy prices are rocketing skywards; (my comment) its reaching the stage (for many people) where they would be better finding things to burn, especially if they have a fireplace. Even before this many people could barely afford to heat their homes.

A week or so ago the local TV news said that many old people were spending all day using their free bus passes travelling around all day - not because she wants to go anywhere but rather because buses are heated, and they cannot afford to heat their homes all day.

As for the weather forecast, it matches what Freestone Wilson was saying some months ago on Earthboppin.

What concerns me more is whether the weather will be warm enough in the summer - snow in August would be a 'very bad' thing, especially with future food supply and depopulation in mind.

As for the economy, the weather and inability to transport goods from the ports inland has already caused food and other goods supply lines to be stretched 'very thin', and of course this is costing many businesses a lot of money. Hopefully the present milder spell will be sufficient to clear the backlog. Someone said that they saw a newspaper article suggesting that in January something like 5 million households will default on bills, or at least seek financial help. Thats before the bailouts and other things are taken into account.

Maybe a few major banks will go bust, with debts too large for bailouts? It sounds possible... as I understand it the derivatives and other bubbles are yet to burst... we shall see.

*Oh yeah, it WILL get worse...both Recession AND Weather wise.
...More ice, snow, sleet, et al heading our way for this weekend. BUT 'The Greeks' are showing the rest of the Eurozone how to Protest...and violently. The 'Brushfire Wars' are heating up and spreading. We could learn from the Greeks how to mount an effective Revolt...in Ireland maybe. Still too tame though by 'Revolutionary Standards'. It's a start...against Austerity Policies. The Video below 'opens eyes' to todays Violent riots/strikes in Greece. Enjoy/'S'

Meanwhile with high borrowings and concern for how things will pan out in 2011 the Spanish economy is still said to be in deep sh*t and a credit agency is talking about downgrading the country's credit rating...

http://www.bbc.co.uk...siness-11997725

re: the riots, well, of course its sad to see and of course I'd rather that there was no bloodshed but politicians being attacked like that is nothing new.

As you said, events so far have been far too insignificant to create major changes.

A lot of snow will dampen down the protests, if only because people cannot travel distances. Come the spring however, especially if the economy continues to falter.

I reckon that the only way that major political and economic upheaval could be prevented would be if the power elite released enough of their statched wealth to pay off the bank debts without the public being asked to pay anything more. I suppose however that its more likely that I'll see flying pigs out the window than this happen.

*Off subject memo below, but YES agree with your last post.

...I've been dampened down with that SNOW you spoke of today. Up at 6:30 AM Shoveling/salting our sharp incline of a hill to the house....long road too. One of those days...and defrosting the Chicken's water in 2 free range pens/chicken runs. Slippery going today...and hard getting any pithy posts up. We've had 13 new members in the last few days...do you think ANY of them would post anything...Nah. Seems as though VERY FEW venture into our avenues/Topics. Lost of folks LOOKING, and members...but no posts/hearing from them. Damned shame.
You do know that Google and others....say 'Our Forum/Web Site is for the more 'Intellectual and mature'? Yep, that's what they say. Still doesn't help attrack those willing to 'chime in' on issures does it? Think I'll keep a watch on the weather/etc., read comic books, and give a wry smile to the rest of the world going about their 'Mundane/childish/uninformed lives'. Guess if I'm angry? Nite nite/'S' :)

Sweeps,

Yes well chickens may be able to take the cold, but they must have water. They dont know to eat snow! Beware of foxes, we have them around here and they often come into our garden. If we were keeping chickens we'd have to use an electric fence to protect them!

I've just put the phone down to a close relative who has been reading up about the weather. He said that apparently in America the weather forecasters are talking about the British winter and saying how terrible it is going to be, how sorry they feel for us.

OK, we know its cold and snowy and it looks like we may be having the most severe winter since 1962/3 (snowed on 26th Dec and thawed in March), but what else are we NOT being told?

(Ireland is of course basking in the same weather).

Today we had a lunchtime blizzard - I was not expecting snow so went out wearing normal shoes etc and suddenly found myself 'slip slidin away' on the footpaths. Somehow and thankfully every time I managed to stay upright. Dunno how though!

re: Wikileaks, I wish they'd hurry up and release info on zero point energy systems. All we ever hear in the media is how energy prices are going up, how there might be some sort of fuel rationing if the cold weather becomes more severe and how people who heat their homes using liquid oil (instead of mains gas or electricity) are facing a double whammy of severe problems because fuel tankers cannot get to them to deliver the oil AND when it arrives a near doubling of price means that whereas in June it was 37p a litre, it is now 70p and rising!

Keep warm - after all, its only December, we have 12 weeks more of winter to look forward to... even more if we are destined to see snow in July ;) !

Simon (wearing 2 jumpers [sweaters] plus thermals, and thats inside the house!)

ps: re the new members, perhaps they just want to see the photos (only logged in members can see them) Or they are shy?

...Some 'Predictions' Simon and all on what's ahead in 2011 for Europe regarding many things of which we are/have been here talking about.

*'Sweeps' NOTE:
…For your consideration. Part of the Predictions Show, by Max Keiser. This show concentrates on the fracturing of the EuroZone, and the Dollar versus the Euro Currency. It also goes into the situation economically regarding China. Interesting VIDEO. Check it out below. Thanks/'S'

Not sure that any of us would have predicted or expected current events as in Egypt. Will Saudi Arabia and other nations nearby be next?

--------------------

btw, There is another aspect to the Egyptian situation which I should mention. My youngest brother is out there! He has been there for a few years. We do not know exactly where as he has not told us.

Normally he only communicates (by email) through a cousin, but recently he telephoned my twin brother because personal safety dictates that he may need to leave the country. How he will manage I dont know, as he is partially disabled.

To say that I have no concerns for his well-being would be wrong, but he is estranged from the rest of the family - in part the angst is not that he went overseas but that he cut himself off from us all and now suddenly we hear from him when he is asking for money... it would have been nice if as a minimum he'd sent a greetings card / email at the 50th wedding anniversary of our parents.

Originally he wanted to go to Canada (ie: not come back here) but that idea has been dropped. Australia is not so easy to get into and I'm not sure about New Zealand either (and there is the EQ risk). At one time he wanted to live in Boston (USA) but I think that the current cold weather has put him off. We thought of Cyprus (Greek part) but being in the Eurozone it has become an expensive place to live. The Turkish part might become unsafe if / when the Middle East (Arab) political turmoil extends to Turkey. My twin suggested to me this evening that he could go to the Falkland Islands, as the place is politically stable and being British he would (probably) still have right of abode. Plus he would be far enough away to ensure that there were no family arguements - which is what might happen if he was to come back to London. Africa is not safe, not even South Africa - we have concerns over what might happen to 'white' people when Mandela passes on. There are not many Colonies nowadays so the choice is somewhat restricted.

It would be nice to see him, and for him to meet teenage relatives who have been born since he went overseas. I would like to discuss his visits to the Pyramids, and events when he was at university and tried to get into politics but 'something mysterious happened' to stop him.

*SIMPLY...a GREAT explanation/cum Summury Simon,
YEP the 'Public' are easily DUPED. Greed is the driving force behind ALL of our 'citizen' problems, and of course the CORRUPTION which goes hand in hand with that system.
YES-'Ron Paul'...the only Congressman really trying to make people aware...and is succeeding in many quarters fo Congress even. Need to Delete/dissolve 'The Federal Reserve' and SEND BANKS...back to being just Banks.
You've done a great service bringing in this Video....it does the job, if folks would only 'catch on' to its message. Many thanks/'S'

Well I 'liked' it and subscribed to the video uplifter's channel - and that means that everyone who follows me and my activities at youtube will get to know about it. :-)

Portugal: The Financial Crisis deepens.

http://www.telegraph...e-bail-out.html

Eventually the situation has to come to a head - it will be painful, but this seems to be what those in 'real' positions of power want.

To my understanding, another aspect of the situation (to the events described in the video I added to this thread a few days ago) is not so much that there is an actual lack of cash - but that a comparative few power mongers have purposely reduced the total amount of money in circulation, in the full knowledge that it would cause in a bad economic situation which many governments tried to resolve by not reducing spending as quickly as income went down.

So, what needs to happen is instead of reducing spending or increasing taxation we should find the power-mongers and use their wealth both restore liquidity to the economy and to pay off all debts. In saying this I mean government & 'ordinary people' personal debts, plus discharging all bankrupts. Then we should introduce all the hitherto restricted technologies.

At the same time, we need to show that we are 'better' than them and whilst we probably will wish to remove them from positions of power & influence I question whether simply killing them should be the adopted solution. Far better to let them experience the 'living hell' they wish for everyone else. Lock them away in rat infested jails with rags for clothing, leaky roofs (ie:, third world shanty town living conditions)...
