The EU are using the new revolutionary Bistromathics!

That explains a) Why those of us using Mathmatics don't understand and b) All those 5 star restaurant bills the taxpayer had to pick up during the last 40 years of EU/CERN "research".

A full explanation of Bistromathics can be found here -

After the development of Bistromathics it was only a small jump to Bistronomics.

Euromafia to the rescue: "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse"

"... ehh... naah"

"I'm gonna make him another offer he can't refuse"

"... ehh.. next time maybe"

It's the only solution to give POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE. Socialism is the will of the younger trendier generation and nothing will stop them. The progressive revolution is finally here, and we can finally give more power to the government to allocate resources efficiently. Corporations need to be guided by smart, well-meaning politicians who are able to make better decisions than the corporations themselves.

Standing tough under stars and stripes
We can tell
This dream's in sight
You've got to admit it
At this point in time that it's clear
The future looks bright
On that train all graphite and glitter
Undersea by rail
Ninety minutes from new york to paris
Well by seventy-six we'll be a.o.k.

What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free
[ Lyrics from: ]
Get your ticket to that wheel in space
While there's time
The fix is in
You'll be a witness to that game of chance in the sky
You know we've got to win
Here at home we'll play in the city
Powered by the sun
Perfect weather for a streamlined world
There'll be spandex jackets one for everyone

What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free

On that train all graphite and glitter
Undersea by rail
Ninety minutes from new york to paris
(more leisure for artists everywhere)
A just machine to make big decisions
Programmed by fellows with compassion and vision
We'll be clean when their work is done
We'll be eternally free yes and eternally young

What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free

OWS is blocks from where I work (no, not in financial mafia) and I was for a short time a member of it...when I thought there might be hope to stopthe tyrants with the RULE OF LAW...

I can't speak about the other locations across the nation (I have no interest/affiliation with Europe et al.), but what I see happening at OWS Manhattan is scary, if you care about the AMERICAN experiment, because there are -0- AMERICANS @ OWS.

Have you read the book Animal Farm?  If not I suggest you do it asap if you want to understand where this is headed...

When you see the likes of Karl Dickinger calling for violent revolution, it is truly time that the adults pay attention before the children burn the house down!

In the article:  "Blood, who worked at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) for 18 years before starting fund manager Generation with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore in 2004"

So an Al Gore lackey from Goldman Sux is trying to sway people to the Michael Moore way of thinking. We don't even have Capitalism, we have state funded auto, banking, airline, insurance, and other propped up industries -- with too big to fails.

Nice spin job Blood

I'll let the Tylers field that one, if they're so inclined.  OWS appears to me to be a heterogeneous and at times conflicted movement, though the baseline does seem to be 'this system is fucked'.

The emails to and from the official OWS organisers... and, globalrevolutionmedia, and other organisers, to and from some big names in the media is interesting........ You can also search the emails yourself.....

I've been reading the emails, and doing searches for different words and terms..... Chilling stuff.


The emails are fascinating, if accurate.

Bill Black. Tyler Durden. And Karl ...

Again, I'm all for an end of crony capitalism, but we can't just look at banks. We have to look at all the institutionalized fraud that has occurred, and the fact that Taibbi, Ratigan, and others from the left ignoring Solyndra is simply a bridge too far for me to get involved until the left gets behind taking down crony capitalism on "green" energy projects as well.

Nice, now if only they would ban words like capitalism, socialism, communism, libertarianism and fascism.... from the dictionary..... and just settle with "crapocracy".... they may be at the threshold of fixing anything at all. Because, you know - they'd be forced to discuss what they actually mean :)

It would be nicer if sheeple banned tme from their frontal lobes are solutions to ponder!

Then again, having observed OWS leadership up close and personal, there aren't many totalitarian models the huddled mongrels will follow once you remove divine right of kings as an option...

They certainly aren't interested in restoring this:

The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions ~ John Locke 1690

They've already banned shorting.  How soon before they ban long sales too and make the bond holders swallow their holdings?

Well, T-Direct just announced "New Security Features" that look like THEY'll be banning US Treasury withdrawls shortly, looks like continuation of the pattern to me:
