    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

What's worse?  I'd say central bankers, hands down.  A nuclear power plant built on a fault line that is destroyed from tectonic activity will only pollute a mere 1-5% of the planet at most.

Central bankers have latched on to 100% of the world, sucking the life out of everyone.  They not only destroy everyone around them, but in the end, the result is complete self destruction as well.

If that's not the definition of satanic, then what is?

Best solution is just to add a 6 zeros to every US bank note. That would solve all the US's issues. Everyone would be millionaires

Well, we here on the Central Coast may find out in short order should a massive earthquake occur as we have been warned in recent days by the folks at JPL.

Note: the Diablo Canyon reactor was built on or about seven (7) fault lines.

I'd say that is a moot/moot question.

I read it as Central Bankers to play Gold, probably as valid a question though.

incidentally, the building of Nuke Plants on fault lines seems to be a common....fault.

Hands down, allowing central bankers to play God is the answer. Without question and not even worth measuring.

While a nuclear plant on a fault line might at some point during it's life experience a severe problem, central banks are creating distortions and problems 365 days a year. Its a matter of cumulative as opposed to one time effects.

Who in their right mind would put a nuclear plant RIGHT ON THE (cock) RING OF FIRE? Wait....let's put it...yes, you guessed it...NEW ORLEANS! what about California or Alaska (which has earthquakes daily albeit small ones).

Central banking in collusion with government at the expense of the individual household brought us WWI, WWII, and before long will induce WWIII.

Which has killed more people?

exactly.  Without the USFed, WWI would have stopped in 6 months as both sides ran out of money to buy supplies, munitions, and pay soldiers.

Meanwhile, in the “Ring of Fire,” the banker-connection continues to produce revelations. The latest is the super-connected NIckie Sarkozy and his back peddling on Libya. Colonel Gaddafi’s son says the French president accepted Libyan funds for his election campaign and should give the money back.  Saif al-Islam Gaddafi says he has proof.

Read more: http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/123957/20110317/france-libya.htm#ixzz1GsFLAZKR

Sarkozy was accused last year of receiving $188,000 in secret cash donations for his 2007 presidential campaign from France’s richest women, L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt.

And is there possible doubt to the French president’s loyalties to his French countrymen and Middle East peace in light of his confusing ties to Israel?

In a speech in 2007 to Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El Torahthon, translated in The Philadelphia  Jewish Voice, attorney Isabelle Tahar Miller said: “To the Palestinians, Sarkozy had repeated that the ‘existence and the security of the State of Israel are not negotiable and that nothing can justify violence. We will never jeopardize Israel’s safety.’”

Raanan Eliaz wrote on May 8, 2007 in “Sarkozy’s Jewish Roots” in the Australian Jewish News, In an interview Nicolas Sarkozy gave in 2004, he expressed an extraordinary understanding of the plight of the Jewish people for a home: ‘Should I remind you of the visceral attachment of every Jew to Israel, as a second mother homeland? There is nothing outrageous about it. Every Jew carries within him a fear passed down through generations, and he knows that if one day he will not feel safe in his country, there will always be a place that would welcome him. And this is Israel.’”   Dr. Eliaz is former Director at the Israeli National Security Council and consultant on European-Israeli Affairs.

Said Eliaz, “We may expect Sarkozy’s presidency to bring a dramatic change not only in Frances domestic affairs, but also in the country’s foreign policy in the Middle-East…

As a Minister of Interior, Sarkozy shared much common policy ground with (then) former Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.”

Upon receiving the World Statesman Award from the Appeal of Conscience Foundation in New York in September 2008, Sarkozy said ‘Anti-Semitism is a stain’ that must be eradicated.

“When a Jew is insulted in France, when a Jew is ill treated because he is a Jew, it affects Jews throughout the world…”

The article Sarkozy slams anti-Semitism (September 24, 2008) continues: “Sarkozy earlier in the day made a forceful speech at the United Nations, vowing to pursue further sanctions against Iran…”  

It was Sarkozy, then president of the European Union and point man for the European bailout, who on September 26, 2008, called for a new international monetary system--the ultimate grab by the international financiers for all the world’s finance marbles.

 At Davos 2010, he called for creation of a World Environment Organization (WEO) as powerful as the World Trade Organization (WTO).


In short, Sarkozy is no Charles de Gaulle.

Maybe, but she’s 88… I know makeup works wonders, but…

Speaking of radios-magazines-television-movies-‘n-books, Monica Waitzfelder’s written a book called L’Oreal Took My Home: The Secrets Behind a Theft, and is suing Liliane’s L’Oreal for receiving stolen goods for having acquired her Jewish family's home after it was “illegally seized during the war.”

Waitzfelder is the daughter of the Rosenfelder family who, she says, fled Karlsruhe, Germany, until “after the fighting ended,” only to find they were unable to return to what had “rightfully been their property.”

At the same time that Waitazfelder is suing over her “home,” Netanyahu and his Israeli forces are bulldozing and/or seizing Palestinians’ homes and people such as Rachel Corrie, who was crushed to death in the Gaza Strip by an Israel Defence Forces (IDF) bulldozer when she was kneeling in front of a local Palestinian's home, thus acting as a human shield, attempting to prevent IDF forces from demolishing the home.

Waitzfelder has taken her claim to the European Court of Human Rights. Rachel Corrie and the Palestinians, of course, have no claims to "human rights."
