The refuse workers had to wait for a spare set of keys to be delivered from the local authority's depot during the stand-off.The council workers had refused to move the box because they would have to open the garden gate.
The plan pledges to guarantee the liabilities of six Irish-owned banks totaling some 400 billion euros ($565 billion), more than twice the country's annual gross domestic product.
"The decision, if left to stand … my prophecy is it will bring down the currency. The euro is not a tenable currency if you have politicians making such decisions. The reality is there is no such thing as a free lunch," Hendry told "Squawk Box Europe."
Harvard University educated CNN Veteran anchor Lou Dobbs, has further confirmed the official endorsement of the Stephen Harper Minority Conservative government on North American Union, or “New America”.
Mr. Harper has been apparently directed by the principal funders of the Conservative Party of Canada, which are ideologically linked to the CFR, to assimilate Canada into a new “Fortress North America” which is controlled by the U.S. political-military-industrial complex by no later than 2010.
Building a ‘North American Community’
Of course not. He's a bully because he threatened to beat up the skinny kid and used coercion to get his way.
Well, Congressman Sherman said that congress was threatened with martial law this week. Specifically, he says that Congress was told martial law would be imposed if they didn't pass the Paulson bailout proposal.
Martial law means that the separation of powers which the Founding Fathers enshrined in the Constitution are destroyed, and an all-powerful executive branch calls the shots.
Is the threat of imposing martial law any different than actually imposing it?
No. Congress is just like the skinny kid.
The U.S. House of Representatives approved the rescue plan by a vote of 263-171 on Friday. That sent the measure to President George W. Bush, who quickly signed it into law, concluding two weeks of high-stakes haggling over the plan that had roiled and captivated global markets.
Markets pivoted on passage of the U.S. bailout, as investors' attention turned to signs of a gathering recession.
As the climb towards a world government continues, several things need to be done first, and one of them is centralization of all regulatory bodies, governments, and anything that affects our daily lives to even the smallest degree, the signs of which are too great to be ignored when reading on world events is done. 2008 seems to be the start of a turning point of this race for control, and those running things behind the scenes aren’t pacing themselves to conserve energy anymore. So, I will concentrate here on what appears to me at the moment to be the three main things that that are in the beginning stages of or will soon be quickly centralized right now around the planet.

I suppose school-organised, adult-supervised activities are better than nothing. But they're really not good enough. Indeed, excessive health and safety measures at school are just the tip of the risk-aversion iceberg leaving increasing numbers of young people without the emotional resilience, social competence and personal confidence to thrive in our society.
A couple of years ago, the Institute for Public Policy Research found that British youngsters were at or near the top of the European charts for almost every type of teenage misconduct and malaise. Not just knife-crime and antisocial behaviour in inner cities, but underage drinking, sexual activity and drug abuse across the social spectrum.
Something is mightily wrong with childhood in Britain, and after 30 years working with children and teachers (the last eight years of which were spent researching "toxic childhood"), I reckon our risk aversion - not just in schools but in every area of life - is a major part of the problem.
Think back to your childhood. What and where did you play when you were six, seven, eight? Most adults remember building and making (dens, mud pies, forts, go-karts), make-believe and role play.
The online text message and voice service owned by auction giant eBay, said that it had been unaware the internet chat of users in China was being stored on computer servers by Chinese mobile firm TOM Online.
Children at the Whitminster Church of England Primary, in Gloucestershire, will no longer be given a short list of words to learn each week because staff believe it leaves them feeling like failures.
Parents' groups called the move 'ridiculous' but headmistress Debbie Marklove, whose school has just over 100 pupils aged four to 11, has invited parents to a meeting to explain her reasons.
In a newsletter, Mrs Marklove wrote: 'You will notice that the children will not be given spelling lists to learn over the week.
'We have taken the decision to stop spelling as homework as it is felt that although children may learn them perfectly at home they are often unable to use them in their daily written work.
'Also many children find this activity unnecessarily distressing.'
The statistics, released on Thursday, show that 3.5million households were in fuel poverty in 2006 - an increase of one million on 2005.
But charities claim the number spending more than 10 per cent of their income on power bills is now much higher. They say that since 2006 it has increased by another two million to around 5.5million
The deregulation of the energy market in the UK combined with the massive sell off of energy utilities to foreign companies means they have free reign over our energy prices and when they decide to black out britain to save their own domestic supplies.
Our Nuclear energy production recently flogged off to to the frogs so they can blackmail us with Power cuts combined with selling all out home produced gas resources to europe because successive governments failed to build sufficient storage here in the UK so we now have to see our natural gas to europe and then they sell it back to us at much higher prices guarentees this will continue to be Rip Off Britain - All in a days work for the Global Elite !!!
Gorbachov - High ranking Freemason and Illuminati stooge responsible for 'brutal suppression of liberty in Poland, Lithuania, Afghanistan, East Germany, and throughout the Soviet bloc; his aid to terror-sponsoring regimes; his involvement in the assassination plot against Pope John Paul II; and his vocal support for Vladimir Putin's increasingly totalitarian regime in Russia. Since retirement from office, Gorbachev has been active promoting world socialism and world government through the United Nations, Green Cross International, the Earth Charter, and his own Gorbachev Foundation.'
''You couldn't make it up'' as David Icke would say.
Created in the frenzied political aftermath of the 9-11-2001 terrorist attacks, it sounds like something Hitler's propaganda minister, Josef Goebbels would have dreamed up to impress the gullible masses. Indeed, the attitude too often displayed at airports by the over paid DHS's minions of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is akin to that of storm troopers.
Two years ago I and others called attention to a dangerous provision slipped into an omnibus appropriation bill that gave the President of the United States the unprecedented power to deploy the U.S. military for domestic duty within the United States as he sees fit.
President Bush (or someone who had his ear) came up with the disturbing idea that the U.S. military should be put in charge of domestic police matters when a "major catastrophe" occurs within America.
The terrorist threat in Britain is approaching critical as police and MI5 face an increase in activity by al-Qaeda militants, senior security officials have disclosed.
The threat level is at the "severe end of severe" according to sources who say the level of "chatter" among terrorist cells has increased in recent months.
The security services say they are now operating at full stretch to counter the elevated threat.
Britain's close relationship with the US has been particularly inflammatory after cross-border raids into Pakistan by American forces.
Security officials had considered downgrading the official threat level from "severe" but that plan has now been abandoned as a result of the increase in terrorist activity.
A senior counter terrorism source said: "We were looking at the threat level six months ago and asking how severe is severe? But it is October now and we are at the severe end of severe.
"Al-Qaeda's core exists on the Afghan-Pakistan border. The arrangement of people changes at a frighteningly rapid pace but they have enough people to replace them and there are people who are looking at us and at external operations, some at this country in particular.
"We are not chasing shadows. These are potential threats to security and life. Police and the security network are operating at full capacity."
Don't you just love it lol
First we are at threat level severe then now at the severe end of severe which i guess must be the same level as approaching critical.
'We are not chasing shadows' Of couse they arent, they know eactly who was responsible for the 7/7 bombings and so do we !
But seriously watch out for some false flag shenanigins this month!
The local sharemarket closed 4.3 per cent lower yesterday, after falling to its worst level in almost three years and losing about $55billion in value.
AMP Capital Investors chief economist Shane Oliver said, ''For investors generally I think it is going to remain a fairly rough ride for some time to come.''
Australian stocks fell after US President George W. Bush failed to get approval from the US House of Representatives for a $US700billion ($A866 billion) Wall Street bail-out plan to support the nation's financial system.
The volatility in financial markets is expected to put pressure on the Reserve Bank of Australia to cut its official interest rate when it meets next Tuesday with markets now mulling over the chance of a 50 basis point cut.
I think sometimes looking at all the media including the alternative media sources that no problems exist outside the US, The EU and the middle east! It's just as bad around the world and the Illuminatis Plans encompass whole world slavery and not just the Northern Hemisphere.
The new contracts -- awarded last week to four companies -- will expand and consolidate what the U.S. military calls "information/psychological operations" in Iraq far into the future, even as violence appears to be abating and U.S. troops have begun drawing down.
More mass media lies on the way and this goes to show that there will be a US military presence in Iraq for a long time to come.

Mr Cameron stressed he was still finalising the details of the plan but hinted it would involve 'character, judgement, that sort of thing'.
Party sources say the plan is currently hidden inside an empty fruit juice carton which is inside a fridge somewhere in central London.
But others claim the real plan is buried under the South Pole and harsh weather conditions mean it cannot be dug up until next spring.
As news of Mr Cameron's plan spread across the UK millions of worried citizens relaxed and returned to hammering their credit cards, safe in the knowledge it was already starting to work.
Elizabeth Allen, from Dorking, said: "David Cameron has a pleasant speaking voice, a decent chin and appears not to be Scottish, so I'm sure it's an excellent plan.
"Tom Logan, from Worcester, added: "Someone has finally had the courage to point out that we at least need to start thinking about sitting down and discussing the possibility of having a plan. That's the leadership I've been hungry for.
"But economist Julian Cook said: "I'd be interested to see this plan because according to my calculations, apart from not spending money that we don't have anyway, there's absolutely fuck all he can do."

The name of the episode, appropriately enough, is "The Paulson Plan." The capsule for the episode reads as follows: Hanky Panky and Buck-Busting Ben decide to renovate the Goldilocks Matrix, giving it a major overhaul, and attempt to redefine the word: "fantasy." Indeed, The Paulson Plan, so-called, may be the most vivid product of a fertile imagination since "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Wizard of Oz," which quite frankly are more believable than the reasons given for the implementation of the "The Paulson Plan."
Oh, we must help the poor sheople by easing the credit-crunch so they can get more loans and get deeper into hock (like more loans is what they somehow need), and so their savings accounts and pensions plans can be saved as we hyperinflate the dollar. Oh, we are sooooo concerned about the welfare of the poor, helpless sheople! We have to save them from destroying themselves, because only we, the masters of the universe, know what is best for them. (Judy, get the barf-bag - quick!) You just don't understand. The corrupt, graft-laden, insider-trading-saturated, fraud-based, Ponzi-scheming system that we have used to rip you off and steal you blind for over a century must obviously be saved so we can keep screwing you ad infinitum. After all, isn't that what sheople are for, to be fleeced and sheered, fattened and slaughtered? You know your place. You are all bleating, ignorant sheople, so come lick our boots - and give us the damned money!!! Oh, there, there, now. We're sorry to take such an imperious tone with you. There, there, just give in to our demands like good little sheople and, in time, everything will turn out juuuuust fine --- NOT!
We know we have taxed you to death via the IRS and inflation of the money supply, we know we have manipulated all the markets and engaged in rampant insider-trading and loan fraud, thus stealing trillions of dollars of your hard-earned cash from you, we know we created Ponzi-scheme bubbles in dot.com stocks and real estate, we know we gave mortgages to people who could not afford homes in the first place, we know that we falsely rated stocks, bonds and derivatives and "cooked our books" to get you and our international friends to pay top dollar for crap, we know we lied to you about every economic statistic on the face of the planet, but, hey, we're all in this together now, and you have no alternative other than to accept our bailout plan (oh, let's call it a "rescue plan" instead) so thatyou can pay for all the economic carnage resulting from our debauchery.
And don't worry about any oversight when it comes to disbursing the piddling $700 billion, because it should be obvious, based on all the foregoing, that we can be trusted to handle the mere 700 billion as if it were -well - our own, which it will be if you approve the plan! Oh, but perhaps we should not mention that - you might construe that as some kind of silly old moral hazard, hahaha. And never mind that we told you we don't know if the plan will work, because we know it won't, but we didn't want to upset you any more than you already are. And have no concern that the 1.4 quadrillion dollar, roiling, boiling derivatives volcano is going to wipe out the entire world banking system with molten credit default swaps and interest rate swaps in a blaze of pyroclastic glory over the next several years, because, hey - we're working on it! And never mind that the problem is unsolvable. This is the United Goldilocks Matrix, where everything turns out juuuuust right!
But the Tory leader declared that he and his party have the “leadership, character, and judgement” that the country needs at a time of financial turmoil.
He said: “These difficult times need leadership, yes. They need character. The leadership to unite your party and build a strong team. The character to stick to your guns and not bottle it when times get tough.”
He added: “Leadership, character, judgement. That’s what Britain needs at a time like this and that’s what this party now offers.”
Mr Cameron likened himself to Margaret Thatcher who had little experience when she took over as Prime Minister at a time of great economic uncertainty
Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, a Foreign Office heavyweight with a reputation for blunt speaking, delivered his bleak assessment of the seven-year Nato campaign in Afghanistan in a briefing with a French diplomat, according to French leaks. However sources in Whitehall said the account was a parody of the British Ambassador’s remarks.
François Fitou, the deputy French Ambassador to Kabul, told President Sarkozy’s office and the Foreign Ministry in a coded cable that Sir Sherard believed that “the current situation is bad; the security situation is getting worse; so is corruption and the Government has lost all trust”.
'Their best hope is to install an acceptable dictator'
I thought they already had one in their puppet president installed by the CIA, Mossad and MI6 !
Ahmadinejad was asked: "If the Palestinian leaders agree to a two-state solution, could Iran live with an Israeli state?"
This was his astonishing reply:
If they [the Palestinians] want to keep the Zionists, they can stay ... Whatever the people decide, we will respect it. I mean, it's very much in correspondence with our proposal to allow Palestinian people to decide through free referendums.
Since most Palestinians are willing to accept a two-state solution, the Iranian president is, in effect, agreeing to Israel's right to exist and opening the door to a peace deal that Iran will endorse.
Ahmadinejad made this apparently extraordinary shift in policy during an interview last week when he was in New York to address the UN General Assembly.
This is something that should have ben headlines all over the world, but not a peep out of the controlled zionist mass media.
This bill does not effectively address the issue of what the taxpayers of our country will actually own after they invest hundreds of billions of dollars in toxic assets. This bill does not effectively address the issue of oversight because the oversight board members have all been hand picked by the Bush administration. This bill does not effectively deal with the issue of foreclosures and addressing that very serious issue, which is impacting millions of low- and moderate-income Americans in the aggressive, effective way that we should be. This bill does not effectively deal with the issue of executive compensation and golden parachutes. Under this bill, the CEOs and the Wall Street insiders will still, with a little bit of imagination, continue to make out like bandits.
Since 1976, Sonoma State University has released an annual survey of the top 25 stories the mainstream media failed to report or reported poorly. Culled from worldwide alternative news sources, vetted by students and faculty, and ranked by judges, the stories may not have been overtly censored. But their controversial subjects, challenges to the status quo or general under-the-radar subject matter might have kept them from the front pages. Project Censored recounts them, accompanied by media analysis, in a book published annually by Seven Stories Press.
"This year, war and civil liberties stood out," Peter Phillips, who has been director of the project since 1996, says of the top stories. "They're closely related and part of the War on Terror that has been the dominant theme of Project Censored for seven years, since 9/11."

British police executed a European Union arrest warrant issued by German authorities at Heathrow late last night Melbourne time.
The arrest warrant accuses 64-year-old Toben of publishing material on the internet "of an anti-Semitic and/or revisionist nature" in Australia, Germany and other countries.
The alleged Holocaust denier was to appear later at the City of Westminster Magistrates Court.
Toben, a former teacher in Victoria, has been involved in lengthy court proceedings in Australia for allegedly denying the Holocaust, and was jailed in Germany in 1999.
The broadcaster is developing a form of advertisement that is embedded into programmes, showing logos or messages in clear spaces such as blue sky.
The new technology is known as 'automatically placed overlay advertising' and has been developed by Californian company Keystream.
It is being tested on some of the news footage shown on the ITV Local website, with logos from USwitch.com and Freesat appearing in the background. If well-received it could be rolled out onto ITV's television programmes.
Stunned Spencer Schofield had parked in town on a shopping trip when two policewomen knocked on his window and said his green BWM 320i had been reported stolen.
The father-of-one asked officers to drive him four minutes home so they could see all the documentation. But instead he was held in the cells for more than five hours until they could formally verify what he was saying was true.
Mr Schofield, 30,said today: ‘It was completely over the top, especially when I could have resolved it in five minutes.’
August was one of the nastiest months I can remember: torrential rain; a hailstorm or two; cold, bitter winds; and mists. But we are accustomed to such weather in England. Lord Byron used to say that an English summer begins on July 31 and ends on Aug. 1. He called 1816 "the year without a summer." He spent it gazing across Lake Geneva, watching the storms, with 18-year-old Mary Shelley. The lightening flickering across the lake inspired her Frankenstein, the tale of the man-made monster galvanized into life by electricity.
This summer's atrocious weather tempted me to tease a Green whom I know. "Well, what about your weather theory now?" (One of the characteristics of Greens is that they know no history.) He replied: "Yes, this weather is unprecedented. England has never had such an August before. It's global warming, of course." That's the Greens' stock response to anything weather-related. Too much sun? "Global warming." Too little sun? "Global warming." Drought? "Global warming." Floods? "Global warming." Freezing cold? "Global warming."
This just goes to show you in the USA that if you vote for McCain you are just gonna get Bush Mark 3. He's only a presidential hopeful now and he wants Bush to by pass congress. Just Think what shit he will create when and if he is in the White House
Industry leaders have already demanded a clearer outline of a sketchy plan unveiled last night which involves raising the personal savings guarantee to ?50,000.
However, the move will not come in immediately which has led to calls for more concrete detail.
Angela Knight, Chief Executive of the British Bankers' Association told Radio 4's Today programme: 'I think we need some clarity.
'If the Government is going to make that shift, then let's shift.
'We're in a particular situation which is called extremely difficult.'
The current savings guarantee is set at £35,000, which covers 96% of people in the U.K.
Raising the benchmark to ?50,000 would provide insurance for an extra two per cent.
It emerged last night that the Prime Minister has taken the unusual step of hiring bankers UBS and N M Rothschilds to advise him on a possible bail-out deal, independent of Chancellor Alistair Darling.
Whitehall sources confirmed that the Government is considering a scheme that would match a guarantee announced yesterday by the Irish government to protect all bank bonds, debts and deposits.
The US thought they had it bad at $700 billion Bail out. £1.9 trillion pounds , you got to be joking !!
And with UBS and Rothschilds advising him you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be an absolutely crap deal for the taxpayer saddling us with more massive debts for years to come.
The UK public must email, write, phone or physically get in front of your M.P and demand that this is stopped otherwise we will vote them out of office!!!
According to a draft European Commission regulation, seen by The Daily Telegraph, the new millimetre wave imaging scanners are to be used “individually or in combination, as a primary or secondary means and under defined conditions” to provide a “virtual strip search” of travellers.
Why? We neither need nor want these things. Oh, but of course! They’ll be a deterrent in the War on Terror (key words: War; Terror).
The new EU regulation, which will be binding on Britain, is intended to enter into force across the continent by the end of April 2010.
Binding on Britain, but not a decision of the British government (ah, but it IS, you see!). Nor was it put to the British people. Clever eh? Like democracy in a totalitarian sort of way. That’s the EU: a totalitarian state in its final stages of creation.
Dominic Grieve, Shadow Home Secretary, stressed that while body scanners may be an effective security tool “the implementation must be carried out by the British government in a proportionate manner, based on UK security requirements rather than the dictates of Brussels”.
Dominic Grieve = future enslaver of the people he pretends to represent. Grieve is a man who lives in the left side of his brain, so he lacks empathy, so he does not know the meaning of Love, so he suits the enslavement agenda.

The controversial ‘Doomsday Seed Vault’, a nuclear-bomb-proof vault deep into the side of a mountain in NATO-member Norway’s Svalbard, near the Arctic Circle, has begun to collect seed samples from the entire world to freeze in the newly opened facility. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, along with the Rockefeller Foundation, Monsanto Corporation, Syngenta Foundation and the Government of Norway, among others, have constructed what is called by BBC the ‘doomsday seed bank.’
29 have been accused of spouse abuse;
7 have been arrested for fraud;
9 have been accused of writing bad cheques;
17 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses;
3 have done time for assault;
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit;
14 have been arrested on drug-related charges;
8 have been arrested for shoplifting;
21 are currently defendants in lawsuits;
84 have been arrested for drink driving in the last year (only).
Which organisation is this?
It’s the 635 members of the British House of Commons, the same group that cranks out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of the citizens inline.
What a bunch of bastards we have running our country — it says it all. And just to top all that they probably have the best ‘corporate’ pension scheme in the country!'
Need I say more?
``North America has been losing market share in world exports,'' Calderon said today at the Economic Club of New York. ``We in North America are losing time.''
Calderon called on the U.S. earlier this week to preserve the North American Free Trade Agreement, saying Sept. 23 that any renegotiation may be harmful. He said today that Mexico, which sells 80 percent of its exports to the U.S., is diversifying more toward Europe and Latin America.
U.S. critics of free trade have been more vocal this year as confidence in the economy erodes, and Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has said Nafta should be changed to include labor and environmental standards.
Dramatic eye-witness testimony was heard at a conference over the weekend which, delegates were told, provided "definitive" proof of recent UFO activity in the skies around north Dublin and Meath.
Footage, filmed on a camera phone at 10.35pm on August 3 near Dunboyne was also played and replayed to over 70 delegates who attended the fifth Irish International UFO conference in Carrick-on-Shannon.
The triangular shaped image, with lights at each point, which appeared to send a red laser-type light towards earth, drew gasps of amazement from the 70 or so delegates who attended the world premiere of the footage.
What the heck is going on in Syria? The news of a huge explosion in Damascus, caused by a car bomb, has shaken the region, and it isn't at all clear who or what is responsible. Whatever the source, however, the attack – which killed 17 bystanders, including possibly a top Syrian intelligence official – augurs ill for the future of peace in the Middle East (an increasingly elusive goal).
I read some dire prediction yesterday that if we don’t fund the bailout, it will be “an economic 9/11.” Well, that’s what it is, all right: the financial version of the nation’s biggest staged fraud. Another inside job.
And it’s not just the mainstream, down-home Americans who are seeing through the lies. It’s the traders themselves on Wall Street, telling people to call their Congressmen and oppose the bailout. It’s the 200 mainstream economists who wrote to their Congressmen declaring that Paulson’s warnings are false.
For more on this, check out mainstream economist Mike Swanson’s article, written this morning in response to yesterday’s drama.
And if you haven’t seen it yet, also treat yourself to Congressman Marcy Kaptur’s 2-minute speech yesterday before Congress.
While this fairground attraction is being readied, the cars are placed facing the same way. Obviously this is done deliberately so that all the drivers will set off in the same direction, maintaining a flow. The owner of these dodgems does not want any complications, so he lines up the cars in the knowledge that the drivers will follow the assumed pattern laid out for them - namely to circumnavigate the track, and always in the same direction. In fact, the owner will often admonish anyone who goes against the flow, though he would be powerless to stop all the drivers if they chose to take an alternate route. Unless of course he turns off the power - then it would be Game Over and he would be out of business.
I experimented. To flow without deviating was simply too dull. I had to deviate to learn something new. I attempted to weave in and out of the flow without touching a single car. Tricky, but rewarding when it came off.
Crashing only worked for me if I had some affinity with the opposing driver. If someone I didn't know crashed into me, it was an 'attack'.
Sometimes I deliberately went against the flow. This meant having a constant stream of cars coming at me - I couldn't avoid them for long, so I had to get back with the flow again , or crash endlessly.
So much for my experience on the dodgems. What are the parallels?
We as a human race follow the same Path of Creation. This is our Collective Illusion. There is only one Path of Creation - or Timeline - and though the Path can be manipulated* in a certain direction, we are free to choose in which direction it goes (hardly anyone realises this because we are uninformed). However, an individual cannot choose; the choice must be made by a critical mass.
BT customers will be invited to take part in the trial of Phorm’s controversial advertising system Webwise from tomorrow.
BT and Phorm said in a statement: “Following successful completion of this trial and an appropriate period of analysis and planning, it is currently expected that Phorm’s platform will be rolled out across BT’s network.”
The trial was due to begin in March but has been delayed by technical problems and legal controversy.
Up to 10,000 BT customers will have their internet use monitored and categorised under the new trial.
Phorm’s online targeting service is designed to make advertising more relevant by taking account of all the websites a person visits, rather than just the content of a single web page.
One more nail in the coffin of privacy and civil liberties!!!
If you are a BT broadband customer cancel your contract and move your account and tell them why you are doing it and if enough people cancel.... But of course you won't will you, you will just sit and moan and do nothing! Prove me wrong.
With inflation at 11million per cent, the savers wanted to take advantage of a higher limit on withdrawals. Previously the maximum that could be taken out was 1,000 Zimbabwean dollars - barely enough to buy a newspaper.
The new limit of 20,000 dollars was still, however, too low for campaigners who want the cap scrapped.
Take note America and the UK, If the central banks just keep printing imaginary money to try and print their way out of a crisis...

The media is falling all over itself to report on every minutiae of the so-called Wall Street "bailout bill" and its rejection by Congress yesterday (just a few of the thousands of examples can be seen here and here and here and here). And why not? The media's breathless coverage of the bill has produced a furious backlash by the public and hysteria on Wall Street in a self-justifying feedback loop that makes the media attention seem merited.
The startling truth which the controlled corporate media is not reporting, however, is that a bailout is actually taking place right now, completely out of the public spotlight. This program has already pumped trillions of dollars into Wall Street (compared to the mere $700 billion proposed in the legislation that the media is focusing on) to help prop up the faltering investment banks and promises to pump in even more, every dime of it to the detriment of the taxpayer though the public will have no stake in its success. Why, then, is this program not being talked about in the media?
Slipping under the radar last week amidst the hullabaloo in Washington over the bailout bill was this story noting that in the past week alone, the Federal Reserve had pumped an astonishing $188 billion per day into the system in the form of emergency credit. This means that in just four days, the Fed injected as much money into the system as the entire $700 billion bailout proposal. After the proposal was rejected, the Fed responded by immediately announcing it would pour another $630 billion into the global financial system.
The Federal Reserve, of course, is America's central bank and although the above story conjures the reassuring image of a national bank lending out some of its vast reserves to help Wall Street weather the storm, the fact is that the Federal Reserve is not Federal and has doubtful reserves. In fact, the trillions of dollars that have been lent to the banks in the last few weeks were created out of nothing by the privately-owned Federal Reserve. When the Federal Reserve "lends" money to a bank through repurchase agreements (repos), credit auction or other method, it is not actually lending out money from its vaults. It is simply creating the money it "lends" out as electronic credits created in the recipient banks account. It is literally money out of thin air.
That the general public is on the hook for this money created out of nothing is not an exaggeration. It is paid for in a dimly-understood mechanism often known as the "inflation tax."
Inflation is nothing more than an indication that the ratio of money to products that can be purchased with that money has been increased. Since the overall number of dollars has gone up without any corresponding increase in economic production (as happens when the Federal Reserve creates money out of thin air), the value of each individual dollar goes down. That means that the value of the money in each individuals' bank account (not to mention their pension and social security dividends) can be reduced simply by the flick of a pen of a Federal Reserve paper-pusher. (Unless of course that individual just happens to be a billionaire investment mogul or a Vice President who can divest themselves of U.S. dollars in time for this inflation not to affect them.)
This is sometimes known as an inflation tax because its overall effect is the same as if the government came in and took that value out of the individuals' bank account.

He then loaded his Mercedes Vito with more than 7000 very small bottles of beer before enjoying a cheese and ham toastie, a glass of Muscadet and a visit to Madame Charlotte's Maison de Sexe.
He returned to Dover at 6.15pm local time on board the Pride of Kent.
He said: "You can get a return for £30 and while on board you have a choice of places to eat and drink, from the relaxed and casual family area to the more elegant and exclusive surroundings of the Club Lounge."
Mr Hayes' latest trouble-free crossing is in marked contrast to a series of disastrous foreign attempts including a Frenchman in a bucket and a Spaniard on a horse.
Last week two Chinamen had to be rescued by French coastguards after attempting the 24 mile journey on a bamboo raft powered solely by ping pong.
Meanwhile, the Hungarian daredevil Lazlo Pinsky is missing, feared drowned, after attempting the Portsmouth to Cherbourg crossing on an ironing board pulled along by a pair of hungry spaniels.

Now scientists are developing a 'thinking cap' that could turn that theory into practice and unlock the amazing potential of the human brain.
The device uses tiny magnetic pulses to change the way the brain works and has produced remarkable results in tests.
Meat should be rationed to four portions a week to beat climate change, says Government-funded report
A study by the Food Climate Network says the average Briton will also need to cut meat consumption to four small portions a week by 2050 - and dramatically reduce their alcohol, sweets and chocolate intake.
Although scientists and environmentalists have called for a cut in meat and dairy consumption before, the latest report - prepared by researchers at the University of Surrey - goes much further.
Cattle, sheep and pig farming produces around eight per cent of all Britain's greenhouse gas emissions. Most is in the form of methane - from belching livestock - or nitrous oxide from the soil used to grow feed.
The report says Britons will need to cut their meat and dairy consumption by a quarter if emissions are to remain stable.
"This is approximately the average level of consumption of people in the developing world today and amounts to half a kilo of meat and a litre of milk per person a week," the report says.
What a load of bollocks. All based on the global warning scam !
Since the late 1990s, federal agents have reported systemic communications security breaches at the Department of Justice, FBI, DEA, the State Department, and the White House. Several of the alleged breaches, these agents say, can be traced to two hi-tech communications companies, Verint Inc. (formerly Comverse Infosys), and Amdocs Ltd., that respectively provide major wiretap and phone billing/record-keeping software contracts for the US government. Together, Verint and Amdocs form part of the backbone of the government's domestic intelligence surveillance technology. Both companies are based in Israel – having arisen to prominence from that country's cornering of the information technology market – and are heavily funded by the Israeli government, with connections to the Israeli military and Israeli intelligence (both companies have a long history of board memberships dominated by current and former Israeli military and intelligence officers).
Pictometry International Corp. says it offers tax assessors 12 different views of every square foot of building or land in a jurisdiction that buys their system. They call it "sophisticated visual intelligence."
State Sen. Jeff Van Drew has another name for it.
"It's Big Brother," said Van Drew, D-Cape May, Cumberland, Atlantic.
"We're not supposed to be spying on people. When it gets to the point where we're doing aerial spying on people's lives, I've had enough," Van Drew said.
The situation in the US depends largely on whether the white hats in the Pentagon and the alphabet soup of government agencies take down the financial oligarchs. The important thing for them to realize is that the financial system you have lived in was nothing but a giant mirage designed to blind the American people from reality. Now that the financial system is collapsing, you will realize that you still have your factories, your military might, your land, your know-how and your people. All you need is to put your best minds at work to come up with a new system controlled by the people and not by a secret inter-married clan of Satan worshippers. You will realize that you have been enslaved in your own land by a parasitical financial class. These people got their hands on the dollar printing machine back in 1913. They then used a combination of bribes, murder and propaganda to slowly, slowly capture the once free people of America.
With Belgian-Dutch group Fortis becoming the first major European bank to buckle, British mortgage lender Bradford & Bingley also being nationalized, as well as several other banks failing in Iceland, Denmark and Germany, economists have warned that more are teetering on the brink and only a radical centralization of power in Europe can stave off financial ruin.
The critical part is ' radical centralization of power in Europe'
All totally engineered !

Stock markets plunged sharply at midday as it appeared that the measure would go down to defeat.
House leaders pushing for the package kept the voting period open for some 40 minutes past the allotted time, trying to convert “no” votes to “yes” votes by pointing to damage being done to the markets, but to no avail.
Supporters of the bill had argued that it was necessary to avoid a collapse of the economic system, a calamity that would drag down not just Wall Street investment houses but possibly the savings and portfolios of millions of Americans. Opponents said the bill was cobbled together in too much haste and might amount to throwing good money from taxpayers after bad investments from Wall Street gamblers.
Should the measure somehow clear the House on a second try, the Senate is expected to vote later in the week. The Jewish holidays and potential procedural obstacles made a vote before Wednesday virtually impossible, but Senate vote-counters predicted that there was enough support in the chamber for the measure to pass. President Bush has urged passage and spent much of the morning telephoning wavering Republicans to plead for their support.
Caroline Flint warned that a lack of available housing meant that younger and lower-paid people could no longer afford to live in the countryside.
"Many of our rural communities are growing older and older, and that is not sustainable for the future," she said, adding that the Government's attempt to change this meant "more building in some cases".
She added: "If we are going to keep our rural areas thriving, we need those younger people to stay there."
Miss Flint blamed the housing shortages on residents who "vociferously" opposed new building in their area, and said families were being forced apart.
"In a number of our rural communities, there are families that have lived there for generations, often in the lowest-paid jobs in a rural economy," she told BBC Radio 4.
"They're part of the rural history, makeup and nature of that area, and they are losing out."
NO, The real reason younger people cant afford to live in the countryside is that mega rich bankers and M.P's have bought up all the affordable rural housing to extend and turn into holiday lets and second homes in the country therefore pushing up the prices of other properties in the area. I've seen it at first hand!
The village I grew up in in rural wales was a hive of activity with 2 pubs 3 tea rooms 3 shops a post office village school and a well focussed community.
Then the second home buyers started snapping up the available cottages doing them up and using them one week in the summer the rest of the local properties for sale started rising in price, then the holiday let market came and slowly but surely the shops started closing and turned into dwellings, the school closed due to falling numbers, now all that is left is a village shop/Post office and a pub.
The government and Post Office in their wisdom have now closed the post office and as the post master eplained the shop isnt viable without the post office so that is closing too!
I ber Caroline Flint has a second home in the country!!
While he hinted at this position during his two and a half years in power, Mr Olmert's remarks, made in a valedictory newspaper interview as he prepares to stand down, represent a significant shift for the Israeli leadership.
The willingness to share control of Jerusalem amounts almost to heresy in a country where generations of leaders have committed themselves to the city as the eternal and undivided capital of the Jewish state.
It remains to be seen whether his successor as prime minister, most likely to be Tzipi Livni who is currently trying to forge a new ruling coalition, would take his advice.
But the remarks, and his observation that Israeli leaders have been blinkered and unrealistic in their handling of peace negotiations, represented a paradigm shift of thinking.
These Zionist Illuminati puppets really get me pissed. When they are in power they are the biggest Nazis out and civil liberties, fairness and the welfare of Palestinians in the occupied territories are the last things on their minds in fact they go out of their way to oppress and murder. But then the minute they are on their way out of power they all U turn like crazy to save their Illuminati necks from a noose in The Hague !!
Ministers have told Royal Mail to close 2,500 out of 14,000 branches in an attempt to cut the network's annual subsidy by £40 million to £150m a year and stem losses running at £4m a week.
Consumer watchdog PostWatch said waiting times of more than 15 minutes were common in London after 160 branches closed.
The news would appear to confirm fears that queuing times were going to get worse once the branches were axed, as the customers were forced to go to fewer branches.
A study of seven Crown branches showed average queuing times ranged from 11 minutes to almost 18 minutes, said PostWatch, which urged the Post Office to tackle the problem.
Roger Darlington, chairman of Postwatch's Greater London group, called the delays "wholly unacceptable".
He said: "Long queuing times have been a problem at some of London's post offices for years.
"With so many sub-post offices closing this year, we were naturally concerned about how certain offices would cope with an increase in customers."
The losses are a mere drop in the ocean when compared to the handouts given to banks out of our money, but when it comes to doing something for the public they don't give a toss!!
Mark Gilbert was being taken to a police station by work colleagues who claim the carpet fitter stole from the company.
The 39-year-old - whose guilt is yet to be proven - was later arrested on suspicion of theft.
