Irish Bail Out

“It is a slow day in a damp little Irish town. The rain is beating down and the streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

On this particular day a rich German tourist is driving through the town, stops at the local hotel and lays a €100 note on the desk, telling the hotel owner he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night. The owner gives him some keys and, as soon as the visitor has walked upstairs, the hotelier grabs the €100 note and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher. The butcher takes the €100 note and runs down the street to repay his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the €100 note and heads off to pay his bill at the supplier of feed and fuel. The guy at the Farmers’ Co-op takes the €100 note and runs to pay his drinks bill at the pub. The publican slips the money along to the local prostitute drinking at the bar, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer him “services” on credit. The hooker then rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill to the hotel owner with the €100 note. The hotel proprietor then places the €100 note back on the counter so the rich traveller will not suspect anything. At that moment the traveller comes down the stairs, picks up the €100 note, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the money, and leaves town.

No one produced anything. No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now out of debt and looking to the future with a lot more optimism…

and that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how the bailout package works.”

Where did the economy go… double-dip here?

No bull! There’s a double dip coming unless the Banks lend the Governement a few trillion more!

My thoughts on the Economy, now that I have a moment to sit down and flow… here are my answers to some of the questions that people are asking.

Below is a bunch of things I wanted to share. If I’m not specific on anything feel free to ask and leave a comment.

1. Current economy
The Depression, yes that’s what it is economically regardless of the lies the politicians tell you and stats made up by economists, is affecting the majority of people right now.

People are losing their jobs, homes and there is no such thing as security. With big companies going bust (those not powerful enough for bailout money) there is no such thing as job security. Employee pensions being gambled away on the stock market and they will be lucky if they have much to live on – that’s probably why they’re pushing the retirement age back.

Almost every year the Government spends more than it raises in tax! It ‘borrows’ this money from the ‘Bank of England’ (so much for it being a Government owned body!)
Someone has to pay this back eventually and that means you! Find out about the UK National Debt.

2. Money is being devalued as more is printed, taxes will go up to cover the money being spent and given to the Banks.  Quantitative Easing: “Instead of lowering Bank Rate to increase the amount of money in the economy, the Bank supplies extra money directly. This does not involve printing more banknotes. Instead the Bank pays for these assets by creating money electronically”

You need to be smart in how and where you invest your money right now. Gold has always been a viable option and the demand will always be there for it if you need to sell. Currently Gold has been trading at around £860 / $1380 per ounce and you can always easily get 90% of it’s value from a jeweler or gold dealer.
Can you afford Not to invest in Gold?

3. It is also wise to keep some liquid cash on hand, for when you need it.

4. Commercial real estate!

I believe the worst is not yet over. This is the breathing space before the real storm. As people lost their jobs and homes, more mortgage resets are coming, increasing interest rates and fewer jobs. This has worked it’s way through the residential property markets at the moment and the next one to be hit is the Commercial property (real estate) markets.
Don’t think it will happen? Walk around your local town centre shops. How many ‘To Let’ signs do you see? More charity shops and pound shops than high street brands? Pubs and bars closing or changing hands more often?
Empty shops and cheap stores being the only ones in business are clear signs of the recession/depression.

Do you see more Cash Convertor stores and places offering to buy your gold in exchange for their cash? Do they know something you don’t…

Only another World War could get everyone working again and making money… hmmm… any invasions on the agenda at the moment Mr. Obama?

I hope I’m wrong… but what what if this is how it happens?

I discussed many of these things with my friend Gerry P. and unfortunately the winds and tornadoes started before I actually implemented and acted on any of the facts.

Make sure you’re not left behind by being forewarned. Get educated!

Government and Banks

The Banks and Governments monitor traffic on the internet now to spy on people, I have know of them doing it with BMV property investors and checking their profiles before processing applications.
As TRUST is the Bankers’ issue, maybe they want to look in the mirror too!?

The world is waking up and the ‘Federal Reserve’ is now a household name, instead of a ‘perceived’ Government body – in reality it is a privately owned bank that masquerades as a Government body. People are against the War and attacks in foreign countries in the name of ‘Oil’.
Enough of living in a Police state with everything being filmed and silly little ‘civil laws’ being invented so they can legally steal your money.

Have America not convinced enough people to support them in attacking Iran yet, to prevent Nuclear arms development? Hmmm… remember the WMD-Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq? Neither do the dead US soldiers and citizens of the country or their families and relatives. But it made a lot of US dollars and gave them control.

The fiat currencies are going to go pop and they need wars to keep their pockets lined and economies going. Read up on Buckminster Fuller’s honest writings: Grunch of Giants and Critical Path.

The Amero (have you heard about it?) is as real as the European Union and I won’t even start on the One World Government with the US President (and his puppeteers) in charge.

Remember this is a game being played by Governments, Banks and Corporation liars (lawyers) – to support their hidden agendas. I’m not sharing anything new – just repeating it so that you may hear the truth THIS TIME!

And if you don’t want to believe it then that’s cool too… just remember the choices you made when you’re waiting for your pension to arrive.

Educate yourselves now! Learn the truth…

I don’t know all the answers but I do know the difference between RIGHT and wrong.
Interestingly HONEST is a Powerful (positive) pattern -v- Legal which is a weak (negative) pattern.

============


Despite the doom and gloom – this is a great opportunity for change!

Take stock and learn from your mistakes.  Accept the feedback.
Let the stresses and challenges be your friend and make you stronger.
Make plans and do things better this time.

The information is already out there and you just need to want to look for it. It requires change from YOU and people to come together and say enough is enough to this slavery.
We are all free people but forgot along the way… Freedom is More Than Just a Seven Letter Word

Now is a time that people will remember what really is of value, taking them away from greed and materialism and forcing them to appreciate the other things in life.

Remember: don’t be a victim! You’re going to have to let go of the old attachments first.
Then get back in charge, take control and be responsible for the life you live!
When would NOW be a good time to do that?

I wish you a happy life filled with fun, friends, family and laughter 🙂

P.S. Double Dips are for caring and sharing together!


Illegal Tender from the Bank of Scotland?

Not only are all the Banks printing money and ripping off the people of the World, the Banks of Scotland have the audacity to go one further and keep printing and issuing illegal currency – that does not have to be accepted as payment for a debt! (you may if you choose but that is up to you). Does that not make it counterfeiting and worthless?

Read the info below sourced from Wikipedia and a big thanks to the Drummond’s of Alloa (who I met at the Robert Kiyosaki Rich Dad weekend) confirming what I thought.

Bobby

So as a Bank, you’re only allowed to steal if you’re a thief and the government authorises it. If they don’t? Then steal anyway as no-one expects any more from you!

UPDATE: Even though they say it is not Legal, the Bank and Lawyer spin doctors say it is ‘not illegal’ either!? Leave it to banks and lawyers to contradict themselves, then expect us to trust them {joke}


HM Treasury is responsible for defining which notes have ‘legal tender’ status within the United Kingdom and the following extract from Bank of England’s website may help to clarify what is meant by “legal tender” and how little practical meaning the phrase has in everyday transactions.

“The term legal tender does not in itself govern the acceptability of banknotes in transactions. Whether or not notes have legal tender status, their acceptability as a means of payment is essentially a matter for agreement between the parties involved. Legal tender has a very narrow technical meaning in relation to the settlement of debt. If a debtor pays in legal tender the exact amount he owes under the terms of a contract, he has good defence in law if he is subsequently sued for non-payment of the debt. In ordinary everyday transactions, the term ‘legal tender’ has very little practical application.”

Source: www.bankofengland.co.uk/banknotes/about/faqs.htm

And for Legal Tender?

What is the Bank’s “Promise to Pay”?

“The words “I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of five [ten/twenty/fifty] pounds” date from long ago when our notes represented deposits of gold. At that time, a member of the public could exchange one of our banknotes for gold to the same value. For example, a £5 note could be exchanged for five gold coins, called sovereigns. But the value of the pound has not been linked to gold for many years, so the meaning of the promise to pay has changed. Exchange into gold is no longer possible and Bank of England notes can only be exchanged for other Bank of England notes of the same face value. Public trust in the pound is now maintained by the operation of monetary policy, the objective of which is price stability.”

Yes that’s right – all the banks do is offer to swap your worthless paper for even more paper as long as you continue to TRUST them!

It’s a Mad, Mad World banking system! << an earlier post I wrote about the banks and trust.


The following is from Wikipedia:

Scottish and Northern Irish banknotes are unusual, firstly because they are issued by retail banks, not central banks, and secondly, as they are not legal tender anywhere in the UK – not even in Scotland or Northern Ireland – they are in fact promissory notes. Indeed, no banknotes (even Bank of England notes) are now legal tender in Scotland or Northern Ireland.

Seven retail banks have the authority of Parliament to issue sterling banknotes as currency. Despite this, the notes are sometimes refused in England and Wales, and are not always accepted by banks and exchange bureaus outside of the United Kingdom. This is particularly true in the case of the Royal Bank of Scotland £1 note, which is the only £1 note to remain in circulation within the UK.

In 2000, the European Central Bank indicated that, should the United Kingdom join the euro, Scottish banks (and, by extension, Northern Ireland banks) would have to cease banknote issue. During the Financial crisis of 2007–2008, the future of private banknotes in the United Kingdom was uncertain. It has been suggested that the Banking Act 2009 would restrict the issue of banknotes by commercial banks in Scotland and Northern Ireland by removing many of the provisions of the Acts quoted above. Banks would be forced to lodge sterling funds with the Bank of England to cover private note issue for a full week, rather than over a weekend, thereby losing four days’ interest and making banknote production financially unviable. Following negotiations among the UK Treasury, the Bank of England and the Scottish banks, it was agreed that the funds would earn interest, allowing them to continue to issue their own notes.

Following the announcement that HBOS (Bank of Scotland’s parent company) would be taken over by Lloyds TSB in September 2008, it was confirmed that the new banking company would continue to print bank notes under the Bank of Scotland name. According to the 1845 Bank Notes (Scotland) Act, the bank could have lost its note-issuing rights, but by retaining headquarters within Scotland, banknote issue will continue.

My journey in life

“These days are to be remembered; please don’t ever forget them.  Hard days make those sunny days that much brighter even when it rains.” – Bobby

It’s been a long cold winter.

I had the receivers from the Bank of Scotland come in on Thursday and take over the running of my business. They didn’t call, give any warning and just walked in with a letter to say they can do whatever they want. Having ignored all my letters and proposals to them to deal with the matter fairly and request for a meeting, this is what they chose to do.
The receiver said he was appointed by the bank on my behalf. He asked me to help him out and I thought if I did they would be fine with me, then he told me to get off the property! You can imagine the shock of the situation, as I wasn’t expecting to be helpful all day, then suddenly being dismissed and told to just pack up and leave without a thank you or anything.

Even though I should have expected this, it still felt like the bank had stabbed me. The banks and their associates are real Wolves in sheep’s clothing, I’ve now come to learn that even their smiles are fake and can’t be trusted.

That was when the reality of the situation hit me and I don’t wish this feeling on anyone.When it happens to someone else we’re the first to judge, rationalise and say that this is how we’d handle it – when it is you, in a split second, everything all of sudden changes, seeming so different and much more important.

I cannot even bring myself to telephone a dear friend that I owe money to without a tear coming to my eye, even though we had spoken the day before.

Regardless of all the Personal Development Dogma, we may not always be in charge of everything in life and our path may be picked for us.
Even still we can only choose to make the best decisions we can and learn from all the lessons in life, whether we see them as good or bad.

Later, as I sat in the supermarket car park, not knowing why I was even there, I scribbled these thoughts that were racing through my head on paper. I cannot even put on paper all the emotions I felt ranging from sorrow, loss, anger,  fear, pride, unhappiness, love and gratitude. What people would say and think.

It was a sunny day and I had tears running streaming down my face, when it started to rain…. which made me a little happier that we don’t live alone and the world shares our joys and sorrows.  The more you open your heart, the more the love can flow in.

Don’t stop dreaming and hang on to them good luck charms, as you will need them soon enough.

And as I stepped out of the car the rain stopped… It really did – it was finally Spring.


If you need someone to talk to about anything at all, I am here for you. Maybe my journey and friends can provide some guidance and put you back on your path. Remember, a problem shared is a problem halved, so feel free to contact me anytime if there is something you want to get off your chest in confidence, as you will always have a friend in me.

Thank you to all my family, friends and business associates (yes, you’re friends too and stuck with me). Our combined hearts are so much bigger and real than the size of any fictional bank or the trillions of paper they print and are then allowed to legally steal by the imaginary government, at the expense of the people like you and me. Judgement day is coming for them…

Money isn’t bad, just what you could do with it and when it’s valued more than people.Your real wealth and value is measured in what you can accomplish for yourself and others, now it’s time for me to show for real that ‘Wealth is what you have left when the money is gone’ and do it all over again, bigger and better… come along for the ride.

My time has been freed up to possibly do more writing, support I never knew I had has appeared and a couple of business proposals have already come in to keep me moving forward. But it’s not over yet as the banks have not won – I’m not going to quit, as the universe works in mysterious ways and I’ve only discounted the options I know about, the unknown resources will appear soon enough. I’m ready and waiting to receive…

Thank you for reading and allowing me to share my thoughts and feelings… my dry with and humour will commence again shortly.  I just need a little time to digest what’s happening and don’t fancy talking to anyone right now, so apologies if I’ve not returned any calls – I am here and will be back in touch soon.

Love and light, Bobby 🙂
