    Ok - I have managed to eek out an existence to support my wife and 3 kids, an income that lets me enjoy leisure time with the toys of my choice, I'm about to build a house most would cream their pants over and have positioned myself to take advantage of the system instead of being but fucked by it.

    Is it corrupt - tbh maybe yes, maybe no, I really don't care - I've got better things to worry about. Today for example I spent a very pleasant few hours playing boats with mates which was much more rewarding than bothering to respond to you.

    Ps - anybody that knows me would acknowledge my knowledge on the financial system goes far far further than the above.

    Yes i am sure you are exactly the type the financial system thrives on and very much attracted to the financial system .... there is a sellout in every crowd ... and you have managed to show that you know bugger all about the financial system or how it works and rather imply that you do ...

    There is nothing wrong in using the system to your advantage.

    Life is like a Card Game, some people got a shitty hand, some got a good one. At the end is all on how you play your hand.

    Yes of course and i don't have a problem with that at all. The measure of real success is making it and still giving a **** about the world rather than being a dog thinking its a dog eat dog world ... some of the accountants, financial planners and brokers i "know" should be locked up for white collar crimes and spat on for the scum they are ... all in good time i guess ...

    You miss the point - I am attracted to the outcome that for better or worse does cost money. I don't earn a ridiculous amount of money much the same as 99% of the population but I dare say I do manage to make it go further in my favour than the vast majority. The options are to roll with it and make the best of a system neither of us can change or just bitch and make excuses for a bitter and sad existence. The choice is up to the individual.

    Yeah i know of an accountant that says he is just trying to put food on the table but somehow 250K+ just isnt enough for such a modest and humble fellow that deserves to be in gaol ...

    Fair enough. Not sure what point you are trying to make but I'm sure it's there in your head.

    I'm just saying making the best of the system is one thing ... committing financial fraud and theft is something else ...

    Well if an accountant on $250K and struggles to put food on the table then he/she should get a different profession.

    Yeah fractional lending. I know a bit about it from uni. I still don't get how it doesn't all collapse. Although in Greece they made the error of lending the same one dollar too many times and it ended up crashing their economy. I replied with the above then realised there was another 93 posts and i wasn't at the end like i thought i was.

    The irony of Germany insisting on austerity measures and Greece paying off its "debt" pronto (rigged by Goldman Sachs) is that it took Germany 92 years to pay off its world war 1 debt and made its final payment on the 3rd October 2010. Greece has indicated Germany still owes Greece from WW2 and that amount would offset all of the debt Greece owes ... murky murky ...

    Fiat systems generally have a mathematical life span of around 40 or 50 years ... the reason it hasn't collapsed is because of the massive lying and cheating going on ... and especially since Nixon "temporarily" closed the gold window that regulated the money supply and so ended the gold standard ... this of course became permanent because he was a lying ****

    To fix the switch from the Gold Standard, Henry Kisinger made a deal with the OPEC. From that time forward, all Oil Transactions shall be made in USDs. That increased a demand for the USD and forced the entire globe to buy US Treasury Bonds to buy USDs. When Saddam had the audacity to sell Iraqi oil for Euros, he need it a good spanking. And you wonder, why the Middle East is in chaos.

    At this point, the Chinese are doing deals in Yuans, chipping away the USD supremacy.

    Venezuela. One of the largest oil producer in the world. Why is a total mess? When the price of the oil droped Venezuela got hit really hard. They supported their economy via oil sales. Send the entire country in a tail spin. Also, to agravate the problem, they are socialist, so their only choice to patch the loss of income is to print more cash. What we see is the obvious, print more Cash, devaluate the Currency, prices goes up. Also, their oil is very thick and Russia's Rossneft are buying their oil and managing the Contents by blending it with their own. That explain why they are there. Also, the Chinese made a deal for Gold Mining rights. The thing is, before Trump, the US Swamp wanted and still want Venezuela's oil. Part of the Globalist expansion/agenda. All you do is crash their economy and show up as saviors. Works pretty good, Africa is a good example. Each time you see an African nation in chaos, look for what kind of resources they have and who is extracting the resources. Let us take Rwanda for example. Everybody knows the genocide that happen years ago. Rwanda has 50% of the world production of Coltan (columbite–tantalites) used in the Electronic and Batteries Industries. Who is mining and where is the mine in Rwanda? What makes you wonder, their had/have their differences (Hutu,Tutsy,Twa), enhanced by the colonization from the Germans and Belgians (1884~1916). My question is, how they got their weapons and who stirred the pot so they can kill each other?

    Kissinger made quite a deal ... i wonder how he managed to make OPEC only take their dollars over all other currencies or did they just realise they are doing a deal with the number one printing press and military over all other nations? The USA seems to have a lot of time for mischief.

    Easy, Saudi Arabia history is quiet interesting. Let us say, UK gave control of the land to the biggest group of thugs. The US offered the best we got, Weapons and Protection for the oil business. As long the world stay on the Dollar, they have nothing to worry about. You see, they get the Cash and come to the US for Weapons. Is a nice rounded business, we just put up with their bullshlt as long they keep buying weapons from "US".

    The Swamp calls Saudi Arabia "Wonderland" because their laws allows for all sort of terrible and horrible shenanigans.

    Behind it all its just a bunch of shifty ****holes that have justified their greedy twisted minds that they have simply positioned themselves to take advantage of the situation and are attracted to the outcome and are hard working and like to live in a spectacular house and play with their toys ... that's rather pathetic and ****** up and says a lot for who they really are ...

    The Saudis cash cow is running out of milk, now, why you think they are spoiling for a fight with Yemen? Using all the wonderful toys and support from "US". They are at the end of their rope, looking for the next well to keep up their standard of living. By the way, what else they produce beside oil?

    I am amazed they can produce so much oil from that spot for so long as it is especially after the "oil crisis" in the 70 ... very strange ... we should not be running on petroleum anyway its primitive, inefficient and a waste of carbon ... obviously the carbon doesn't get burned so its the hydrogen and oxygen doing the work ...

    Bob Lazaar (ex Area 51) seems to be doing his thing ...
