I want the liberty to end my life with dignity.
Did I mention I live in the USA where that CHOICE isn't mine. Cognitive liberty is at best paid lip service. Society has in effect silenced me. I'm going mute unless my excuse for a life experiences a quality of life upgrade.

Ponzi currencies will soon have new name but no difference.

The financial meltdown the economists of the Austrian School predicted has arrived.
We are in this crisis because of an excess of artificially created credit at the hands of the Federal Reserve System. The solution being proposed? More artificial credit by the Federal Reserve. No liquidation of bad debt and malinvestment is to be allowed. By doing more of the same, we will only continue and intensify the distortions in our economy - all the capital misallocation, all the malinvestment - and prevent the market's attempt to re-establish rational pricing of houses and other assets.

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke met with House and Senate leaders to recommend a $700 billion capital injection to purchase bad mortgage debt from financial companies (OGJ Online, Sept. 22, 2008).

Problem Profits
PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - The price of rat meat has quadrupled in Cambodia this year as inflation has put other meat beyond the reach of poor people, officials said on Wednesday.

Here's my proposition:  You remember that garbage boat years ago that was rejected by one port after another?  It took a long time to find a port where they could dump their load.  Facing this difficulty, municipalities will pay you good money to take away a boatload of their garbage.  
Therefore, get a boatload of garbage [with a pocketful of cash for doing the owners of the garbage a favor].   Catch loads of rats and throw them on board with the garbage.  Take a leisurely trip to Cambodia.  Be received as a humanitarian savior and come home rich.   Whadda yuthink??

Energy experts puzzled over oil prices (AP)

Khelil, the OPEC president, offered no solace to consumers.

"We are very uncertain about the oil prices since it's highly volatile and we don't really know whether it is going to be stabilizing or going to lower levels," he told delegates. "But everybody agrees that oil prices are too high."

slave_to_reason Too high? I don't agree.Oil is cheap. But even the EIA is publicly going peak-oil. The ugly truth? Peak oil isn’t fringe anymore—it’s going mainstream.  Living in denial of the warning of Limits To Growth has us needing to consider the order of death. As Bill Hicks would say "what do you say we figure out this food-air deal! Too many people and knowbody wants to say population is the root of the problem. A philosopher said circa "wealth requires an abundunce of the poor." Competing for scraps in a race to the bottom.Old money coupled with exponetial growth has a predictable outcome.
The propagenda machine has the public duped about what drives policy to the point that they are irreleavent as ever.

Goats, Sheep Get City Jobs as Landscapers.
 "It is the year of weed-snackers rather than weed-whackers. As a way of controlling invasive vegetation and renewing the land, the ancient idea of using sheep and goats is finding renewed favor. In Northern California alone, at least 10 companies compete for the business."

Twenty-six of those acres belong to the Mineta San Jose International Airport. If you take De La Cruz Boulevard south from Highway 101, you can see the goats and sheep on the right. They're expected to be on the job until mid-June, chewing through a couple of acres a day. Total cost to the city: $11,700

The advantages lie with a better ecological balance. Instead of using tractors and herbicides, cities and ecologically minded companies like Agilent let the animals do the work, leaving their droppings to fertilize the ground.

"It's post-modern," says another Living Systems manager, Brian Kirbis. "It's not only good for ecology, it's good for business."

Mexico is the world's sixth-largest oil producer, but still has a deficit.

Congress budgeted for crude oil production of 3.2 million barrels a day this year, and exports of 1.7 million barrels a day.
But production in the first quarter was only 2.911 million barrels a day, down 7.8 percent from the first quarter of 2007. First-quarter exports were 1.5 million barrels a day, down 12.4 percent from first quarter last year.

[info]slave_to_reason No doubt Mexico will fold into NAU, but how will the NAU currency effect the petrodollar hedgemony? Iran's oil bourse is the "crime" and driver behind policy toward Iran. If the US were to leave Iraq, which will NEVER happen, the currency war for dollar hedgemony will destroy the subsidy of the multiplier effect and destroy the dollar. Just how will the currency war play out?

Water crisis to be biggest world risk
 Nicholas (Lord) Stern, author of the Government's Stern Review on the economics of climate change, warned that underground aquifers could run dry at the same time as melting glaciers play havoc with fresh supplies of usable water.

... Lord Stern, the World Bank's former chief economist, said governments had been slow to accept the awful truth that usable water is running out. Fresh rainfall is not enough to refill the underground water tables.

Brain researcher Jill Bolte Taylor studied her own stroke as it happened.
I grew up in a New York, intellectual, atheistic environment. We were so identified with our logical, sequential, talking brain that the unconscious and subconscious were considered to be The Enemy. Then, in the mid-60s, I went to a weekend seminar on psychedelic substances at Stanford University. The speakers were well respected professionals, delivering brilliantly insightful talks. Many of them were also loaded with psychedelics. Wilson Van Dusen, the chief psychologist at Mendocino State Hospital, spoke excitedly, waving his  hands. Suddenly he stopped. "Look at this hand, this beautiful creation," he said. Tears streamed down his cheeks.

I thought to myself, "This stuff makes you crazy. I will never go near it."

Then, for the rest of the week, I could not stop reliving that incident. Van Dusen was stuck in my craw. He had a successful professional life PLUS full freedom of expression. He did not have to shrink himself - to saw off his own ankles - in order to to fit a Procrustean bed of professionalism. I realized I wanted that fullness - that freedom - in my life. Seeing all those capable people who had ventured into the unknown without losing their driver's licenses suddenly seemed reassuring rather than frightening.

Anybody notice the huge shift to accepting climate change?
slave_to_reason I'm a broken record. Buy food, gold, silver, guns, ammo, and oil futures. But who is going to buy the legitimacy of claiming the right to tax your pollution? Who has the incentive and what is the propagenda? The timing couldn't be more perfect for global governance. With Mexico's decreasing revenue from oil exports Mexico will fold into the NAU without thinking twice. Canada remains a queen colony as always, and will remain as obedient as it ever was. 
I've said before that Chavez is, whether aware or not, being used to unify South America with a strong US polarization which allows obfuscation as to the fundamental reasons why oil will continue to go higher.  Peak oil has been carefully kept behind the curtain allowing the "american way of life" to keep on truckin. Thus the US image of a belligerent energy wasting military monger which will ultimately get the rest of the world to recognize a global authority to penalize the US for beer already pissed down the drain.
