"We need a new economic balance"
If the US removed the cap on social security, public spirit and generational trust would be restored. At present, there is a cap at $106K. If you make $4 million a year, you only pay a social security tax on the first $106K.

The Debt ‘Trial of the Century’ – Vulture Hedge Funds v. Argentina
Yesterday, two holdout vulture funds, including Paul Singer's NML Capital, were in a New York Federal court versus Argentina. The Financial Times has dubbed the proceeding the "'the trial of the century' in sovereign debt restructuring." After the hearing, judges at the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that will issue their ruling in the coming weeks.

WE SHOULD FOLLOW ICELAND'S EXAMPLE AND LET THE "TOO BIG TOO FAIL" FALL
Banksters argue that they need size to provide competitive services. They say this even as they cut services or impose service fees on everything from statements to phoning for balances. Are they telling the truth? Is Goldman Sach mankind's savior or just the world's largest tick sucking the blood out of society? The answer seems to be that Goldman and the rest of the TBTF's are the latter. Write bloomberg and compliment them on their perspicacity.

THE SECRET BANK ACCOUNTS OF AMERICAN POLITICIANS AT THE VATICAN BANK
Pope Ratzinger did not resign because of pedophilia. He permitted it because it gave him control over a bunch of sick politicians world wide. His big mistake was in being a little too open about the bank accounts that were kept there for the politicos. Why else did they go to visit him and kiss his ring?

FOLLOW THE MIGRATING GOLD
Weird stuff is happening that appears to presage big changes on the planet. The Pope resigned (not for 600 plus years has that happened) Beatrix resigned. Lots of other people are "resigning." Where are they going? Why? There are a number of theories, but what is important is the idiotic stories being told to MASK movements of gold.

As the informed know, gold pledged to the USA for collateral and returned to its countries of origin underwent amazing transformations in the hands of the US authorities. IT became gold-plated TUNGSTEN. When the Chinese, Swiss and Germans uncovered this deception, they because a trifle irate. The Chinese demanded repayment...hence the vast overpricing of gold in this country. Then the US invaded Mali intending to repay those gold thefts with gold mined there. Unfortunately, NATO elected NOT to save the people who had stolen the gold originally by standing down. So...now, it looks like the gold is MIGRATING.

The new cover story is that GOLD was found in those meteorites. Search a bit on meteorites. They aren't gold. Gold would burn up in the atmosphere and shower us with sparkles. Meteors are IRON for the most part. THERE IS NO GOLD IN THE RUSSIAN METEORS...IT IS LIES.

GM Worker Willing to Die Seeking Labor Justice
If Jorge Parra lives to see the Portland Auto Show being held from January 24th through the 27th, he will have passed his 65th day on a hunger strike in support of the Association of Injured Workers and Ex-Workers of General Motors-Colmotores (ASOTRECOL).

The annual holiday tax on the working poor
Just when you need it most, your wages drop. And to make matters worse, the company might shut down for not one but two or even three days depending on the day of the week. Naturally, you want to be with your family and friends on the holiday. But when it cost you money to "celebrate," the holidays lose a lot of whatever meaning they may have once held.

Paul Craig Roberts: Impending Crash of American Dollar
(25 mins.)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGujjO_Za2c

in context of recent 'fiscal cliff' corpo-media-hysterics, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts thinks there is "an impending collapse of the exchange value," and that the U.S. dollar could unexpectedly plunge in buying power. "All of a sudden, people walk into Walmart, as usual, and they think they've walked into Neiman Marcus." No quick fixes to the bulging debt either, because "there's no way to close this deficit when corporations are moving the tax base off-shore."

Also noted of course, are the unfunded wars (unlike Social Security, Medicare etc. which are _funded_ programs).

How about Quantitative Easing for the People?
Giving the general population x-amount of money would certainly give the economy the boost that it needs instead of going to the bankers. More importantly, however, is for people to have faith in the economy again and that their future is secure. What is going on at the moment, certainly in Europe, is that people fear the future and they fear whether they are going to be out of work tomorrow. If plenty of jobs could be created then the fear factor would be reduced and people would spend money, thus an automatic boost to the economy.
