You may be right, we might go into a Dark Ages redux.

Wow. Straight to the heart of the system.
Italy is a TBTF for too many reasons.
Where will they transfer this pain to?

Better yet - how about you stop spamming your worthless website on a site that is worth something?

just struck me, is it time for Il Papa to take the heat again?


1) Vatican Trouble Peaks April 15th 2010

2) Eskkkudjeeelaffyyll is erupting

3) Oil is in the news with Deep Water Horizon

4) Christ Church rocks in Early Spetember 2010, peaking of the Deep Water Horizon Story

5)Vatican story goes completely quiet.


Fast forward now:

1) Oil is in the news, explosively

2) ChristChurch rocks again

3) Bulsan Volcano blows

Maybe the Vatican story will "explode" into the news again. soon.

Really? Links please?


And to the long timers who think I'm spamming....tch....tch... you post you tube links and other links and pictures that you think are relevant. I think my writing is.

easy enough to pass along, ne? Or are you that  lazy? I give a few regulars a pass because I dis-like their point of view. But I welcome Michael, Gully Foyle, DavidP, who post relevant, even if in a round about way, original or well researched material or links for the most part.

Such a curious reaction.

Also, big, huge hat-tip to ZH and folks here and a few other forums I post on, my blog is well read and responded to.

I see it as an extension, not an intrusion.

Apologies for the image trouble, only in the US, here it is working fine.

Lulz is good. I like CD. You, he and I are ZH oldtimers. Good to see Jim in MN today. Miss deadhead, though.

I am lucky enough to have very intermittent email contact with deadhead. He doesn't check his ZH email account very often. He comes around here now and then, but something profound happened to him that led him to essentially abandon posting here on ZH.

He says he lurks often, but who knows what happens to a person who has been severely beaten by the very system he trusted all those years. I tried to channel some of that pain with my "Where have all the ZH Veterans gone...." article but each case is unique.

Yeah, I miss some of the "old timers" I wll read that article CD.


Wonder how many of us will be left "standing" virtually in the next few years?

I'm currently working on a Zero Hedge article about Zero Hedge that quotes extensively from the book and movie. Gonna run long but it should be fun. will ruffle feathers in the community.

 You caused me to reflect on Venice and some of the other Italian City-States and their history; they have all seen so many government financial plans explode, implode, disintegrate centrifugally,  and vanish into the mist; and all during this time the families and the businesses that held the gold and the silver survived; for many many centuries. And today, in the ultramodern future that is suddenly now; everything is exactly the same.
