I Finally Figured Out How To Save The World.

I ….. WROTE ….. AN ……. EMAIL.  Yes I did. When you villains at Cattallaxy refused to lift a finger to save the world, I wrote a letter.  That’s right. Yes indeed. Nasty business this banker occupation. But I did something about it.    Now if this plan can succeed, we can recover quickly, after the next wave, of economic collapse.  I was inspired by this silver analyst, calling for a silver cartel, since the banker filth were seeing to it, that whole countries were getting ripped off by short-selling, and phantom supply of silver.  I thought to myself “thats a brilliant idea”, but with my unsurpassed understanding of banking, monetary economics, how capital markets work, and how capital markets SHOULD WORK ……..  I came up with an idea that was still better. So I saved the world by immediately sending Max Keiser an email, based on the comments I made on the silver analysts youtube.  The species is saved. We can reach for our true heritage in space.  I can live to a ripe old age after building my own harem. All was lost, now all is found.

Here is the email I sent to Max:

How To Beat The Crony Filth

Graeme Bird to max@maxkeiser.com    1 minute ago

RE GIABO
A just had a brainstorm. This fellow who analyses the silver market, came up with the idea of setting up a silver cartel, because he reckoned silver producing countries were being gypped by the subsidised banker filth.  His idea had a great deal of merit to it, but if I may be so bold, I believe it inspired me to come up with a far better idea.  I made my comments on his youtube video. We can beat these guys you know. We can really beat them.  Here is what I said:

This is a brilliant idea. But the goals of the silver cartel, ought not to be about getting the price up. Its goals ought to be:

1. The global elimination of any short-selling of silver, or any unbacked selling of silver. Silver investment markets ought all run along the lines of the Perth mint.

2. The global elimination of any unnatural hindrances to using 100% backed silver for loan contracts. Like capital gains tax, or other anti-market deals which, would be an hindrance to silver as money.

You see the thing is no-one will treat silver as money for investment, if they know the bank isn’t practicing 100% backing. And no-one will treat silver as money, if they cannot get hold of any silver, thanks to the cartel. But if the cartel does it my way, in the first two years everyone will be scrambling to get hold of silver. When the financial markets of the world throw in the towel, we’ll have the best possible commodity, being dealt with in the best possible way, to allow it to be money.

GMBCATASTROPHE 1 sec ago

Also the goal of the cartel ought not be to push the price up to $100+. Rather they ought to take whatever price it is when the cartel is in operation, and make the price go up from there at 1% per week. That gives everyone in the world time to rush for silver, knowing they will get a great return. 1% per week for the first year lets say, then 1% per month. That way you are getting the world population, being bitch-slapped by the inflationist banks, right behind you. Thats real buying power.

GMBCATASTROPHE 1 sec ago

Now it might be argued that if silver is going up in price at 1% per month, after the first year, then this rules it out for loanable funds, and its only monetary value would be as collateral, and as medium of exchange. But the silver cartel could point out that its goals were limited. It would love to see to it, that tungsten, chromium, copper, gold, platinum, palladium and titanium, were all owned, sold and loaned, on the basis of 100% backing and that this and only this would bring ………

GMBCATASTROPHE 1 sec ago

…. and that this and only this would bring the silver price down, and stop its price rising so that it could be used as a monetary metal. The reason being that then there would be 8 other commodities, as well suited for digitalisation, and monetization. So the upshot would be we’d definitely get silver up in value, in a way wherein everyone could participate, and we would fail to get it to (lets say) 500 dollars per ounce, only if we gave humanity sound money and a real future.

That is how I saved the fucking world. And just in time for Christmas. Just before we enter the fabled year of 2012.

  1. This is what is going to save the world. My greatest find and love of the year. Lucia Micarelli. She’s American (Korean-Italian).

  2. Very tasteful. And pretty strange too. The second half I mean. Who would have thought you could substitute a violin for Freddy Mercury? I listened to the first half twice. Since the first time I couldn’t really absorb the music, and watch her at the same time. These half-Asian half-Euro girls make me want to figure out how I can have some “Thai-Fallung” daughters of my own.

  3. I knew you’d like her. Apologies for the rave and thread hijack. But she is a complete darling. And plays barefoot. I love that too. All class. She’s even toured with Jethro Tull. LOL. She’s classically trained, of course, and has been playing violin since she was three, but now she has hit the road. I first saw her in the HBO series Treme. A knockout performer in a knockout series set in the Big Easy, beginning three months post Katrina.

    • Yeah I was thinking this sort of thing when I listened to the first one. She goes in for the sort of rock-and-roll action that a electric guitarist would be proud of. You know. When a fellow who plays a Fender Telecaster, describes himself as a “Tele-torturer”. Like me and my homies just got busted for teletorturing. And she seemed to want to be doing the same sort of action with a fiddle.

      Then of course you knew I’d like her, because though she’s Italian-Korean cross, if you had to guess, you would of course think she was Thai. My paternalistic instincts win over the normal, more sordid ones, but only just. And the barefoot thing reminds me of how much I like partially-Westernized Thai girls …

      “I knew you’d like her. Apologies for the rave and thread hijack. But she is a complete darling. And plays barefoot.”

      Because what I’ve noticed is these honeys, aren’t afraid to be real out there and female. That side of them hasn’t been knocked out of them. One relative got her degree in English studies. A in Shakespeare. But I’ve seen her unashamedly with a stuffed toy of some sort. And my step-sons girlfriend. Also in her early twenties. I noticed her with a stuffed toy of some sort. They can leave the doll at home, and go work for some petrochemical company. They don’t care. They don’t think these sorts of expressions diminish them. And Thailand, unlike Japan twenty years ago, doesn’t discriminate against girls to any non-Western equivalent in the jobs market.

      • I don’t know that most people register or care about her heritage. I watched the first series of Treme in which she features without ever reflecting once on her ethnic or national background. I found that out afterwards when I searched for info about her. And while that is of interest, it’s really far from the most important or revealing thing about her.

        I note that some comments on youtube criticise her for “showing too much skin” and infer she doesn’t need to do that in order to be a fabulous musician.

        But my take is that while she rightly revels in dressing sexily, as young women do, she is quite confident that her innate talent and trained skill, and the intensity of her feelings and performance, are paramount in her enjoyment and that of others in her glorious performances.

      • Right. She isn’t overdoing it in any sense. Much as pigs like myself might wish her to. She’s just being a girly-girl. Which she is. And a serious musician as well. Its not like there is any conflict.

  4. Here she is talking about herself.

    She is completely unpretentious but brilliantly talented. She’s adorable. If you watch any tv series this year watch TREME, not least for her.

  5. The music and musicians in ‘Treme’ are really something else. What a world of talent and culture. Much of it from New Orleans, the whole point of the show.

  6. A New Orleans funeral.

    The dignity.

  7. The tenderness. The joy.

  8. Keep it coming beautiful. And don’t be worrying about the trash-talk at Catallaxy. I don’t understand it either, but clearly these people have ambivalent feelings toward long-legged female company. Else they wouldn’t have burnt all their bridges when others did not.

  9. From Gab:

    “Steveie, I’ve had a lovely day of eating and drinking and whori socialising. I don’t understand your comment, darl. Is it in English?”

    The “whori” thing had that pro-to word crossed out. Anyone with human feeling could see why I would want that sort of attention coming my way. But It seems that she hangs out in Melbourne. It seems also that she speaks Hungarian. Which is kind of neat, or potentially so.

  10. Under excellence in government, and financial regulation, the sort of thing, portrayed in this link, would be the norm and the bread and butter of loanable funds:

  11. Bird, has Max Keiser replied to you yet? With such a plan to “save the world”, you’d think he’d be on it in a flash.

  12. I doubt that he’ll take much notice of it really. But the potential is there. I’ll send an email to a lot of other likely people. People who would understand why a silver cartel, if its not given over purely to crude greed, can leverage the situation to save the world. But few people have the sophistication to take to the idea.

    Here we have a situation which seems so blatant to me. In Europe and the US the bankers are stealing everything. In comparison our own bankers seem like saints. They seem happy to accept the same level of graft as they were always accustomed too. Of course they are wrecking our economy too. Buggering our patrimony, screwing our manufacturers, and ruining all things. But they aren’t out there lawlessly stealing hand over fist like in the US and Europe.

    You’ve got to do what you can flaps. It would be the same in Germany in the 1930’s. One doesn’t sacrifice ones life and ones family to stop the fascist menace. But one does what one can to help find a way to defeat them, without going so far as to completely trash ones own personal interest.

    What have you done to stop the runaway, rolling-thunder, of theft that has destroyed the employment prospects of most of your countrymen? Here are these people, they are trying to steal everything off your benefactors. What have you done to help?

  13. I do like your “rolling thunder” figure of speech. Is that a particular military-poetic reference?

  14. Yeah I use it a lot hey? The reference comes from a pretty humble revenge movie called “Rolling Thunder.” Its a humble movie sure. But a very good movie that delivers at the end in a powerful way.

    The opening sequence has a Vietnam Vet returning home, and being given a dutiful homecoming with the local town band and so forth. One of the master-strokes comes right there. The Vet talks about how he knows that they always supported him ….. But the next two cuts of the audience say otherwise. The editing seems to show that the Vets weren’t supported, and that there is something of “going-through-the-motions” going on there.

    He’s come back and his wife has abandoned him for a fellow who runs down his son right in front of him. That is bad enough, but some villains then destroy pretty much everything he has. But its cool because he turns the tables.

    It is a humble film, yet I can recommend it too you.

  15. DON’T LIE IDIOT. COME UP WITH SOME SORT OF REASONABLE CRITIQUE. AS IF I’M GOING TO DROP EVERYTHING, GO BACK INTO BANKING, MOVE MY WAY UP THAT SAME RACKET, IN ORDER TO GET WHAT YOU THINK IS “CREDIBILITY”. CREDIBILITY IN THE EYES OF WHOM.

    WHEN YOU SAY SOMETHING EVEN HALFWAY WORTHWHILE I ALWAYS POST IT.

    • site deity replies:

      “CREDIT ANALYST” In Corporate Finance. The reality was that it was ALL CREDIT AND NO ANALYSIS. I was on the 34th floor. I wanted to be on the 4th floor, where they had just spent 4 million dollars on a new trading floor. Which had the capacity that we now have from our bedroom computer. So I used to drink with the traders. But the only people doing solid wealth-creating analysis, were the people in “commercial finance” on the 2nd floor. Apart from basic bank services, as far as I could see then, and as far as I can see now, this degraded, minority, 2nd division, of the bank, was the only part of the bank, that served a wealth-creating function.

      I got thinking about this just before I quit. Well no thats not quite true. Something happened that I thought was notable and I had stewed on it over the years:

      A girl that rubbed me the wrong way got a secondment to London. Then I was with my manager and this fellow from commercial finance drinking to excess. The fellow from the second floor was complaining that his division was getting gypped. Why didn’t he or one of his colleagues get the London gig? I just didn’t see the significance of it right then…………..

      But looking back on that scene, I now know, that the reality of that drinking session was …………. that out of all of us in the room, this young bloke from commercial finance ……. complaining about getting gypped ……. was the only one of us drinking in that room ….. who was authentically qualified to be a banker.

      The banking world is like a microcosm of the real world, not always but right now. You see at the moment, the people who create the wealth are being lorded over by higher paid people who don’t do shit, when all is said and done.

  16. The March of the Workers

    By William Morris

    (English poet and artist, 1834–1896; founder of the “Arts and Crafts” movement, and a lifelong Socialist)

    WHAT is this—the sound and rumor? What is this that all men hear,
    Like the wind in hollow valleys when the storm is drawing near,
    Like the rolling-on of ocean in the eventide of fear?
    ’Tis the people marching on.

    CHORUS

    Hark the rolling of the thunder!
    Lo! the sun! and lo! thereunder
    Riseth wrath, and hope, and wonder,
    And the host comes marching on.

    Forth they come from grief and torment; on they go towards health and mirth.
    All the wide world is their dwelling, every corner of the earth.
    Buy them, sell them for thy service! Try the bargain what ’tis worth,
    For the days are marching on. (Chorus)

    Many a hundred years passed over have they labored deaf and blind;
    Never tidings reached their sorrow, never hope their toil might find.
    Now at last they’ve heard and hear it, and the cry comes down the wind
    And their feet are marching on. (Chorus)

    “Is it war then? Will ye perish as the dry wood in the fire?
    Is it peace? Then be ye of us, let your hope be our desire.
    Come and live! for life awaketh, and the world shall never tire;
    And hope is marching on. (Chorus)

  17. Right. But you can see why the bankers promoted Marxism. It puts the blame on general business. Whereas we can say, that at least the sole trader, and a great deal of the non-connected medium-sized businesses, are pretty much always and everywhere an unmitigated good to the community. But the ruling class, and the bankers, were able to use Marx to pass off the blame for all the bad things we see onto the sort of people who strive to do good and productive things in the community.

    How many such people are prominent right now? They are there but they are struggling. Most of those who got rich lately did so flipping houses on subsidised credit. Steve Jobs is dead. And so are the opportunities that created the example of excellence and righteousness that he gave us. We won’t get the real wealth creators back until we:

    1. Defeat the banking rackets and
    2. Put “fictional persons” back in a very niche and restricted role.

  18. That’s fubar. The banks and the ruling class promoted Marxism?!

    You’re twisting reality into unreal knots to avoid the final truth.

    Why the mental block?

  19. Well I don’t know that for sure, as a scientific fact. Thats true. Its not scientific what I said. I think I’m right, but I’ll have to admit not being able to prove that contention readily.

    Look into claims that the communist revolution, was in part funded from Wall Street. Such claims appear to be out there, and they don’t appear to be without merit.

  20. The Russian Revolution was funded by Wall Street?

    Okay. Now why would it want to? Any ready explanation for that one?

  21. If we assume a shadow government, then they always had the English central bank, and the English trading empire, which they could milk with the help of the Central Bank Of England.

    But they had some trouble milking the New World. They milked it sure but their exploitation could only go so far. But in 1913 they got the Federal Reserve. And therefore a controlling entity could potentially milk the world on account of near total anglo-saxon (only even potentially challenged by the Germans) dominance at that time.

    Well the controlling conspiracy has no armies as its own. It must co-opt national armies right? A controlling conspiracy of this sort …. a shadow government, has to be a low-key Sun Tzu sort of affair. If the majority of the population understood that they were being ripped off so thoroughly, in this financial sector milking, they would simply hang the culprits.

    So such an entity has to get us fighting amongst ourselves. Has to pit a natural ally, against another, in a situation of enmity.

    So its only natural to promote anti-sole-trader craziness. Of course this is natural. When you are in the middle of conducting a scam that is stealing from the sole trader, the worker, and everyones momma.

  22. Right. I get now where you are coming from.

    It seems a round about way to get to what others arrive at more conventionally.

    But that’s a minor quibble.

  23. Only by going back to original sources could I prove this thesis wrong or confirm it, and of course I don’t have the time for that sort of thing.

  24. Even though this is (probably) a complete fantasy, its a very good “working-model” that backtests rather well.

  25. Dear Graeme

    Just popping in to wish you and Mrs Bird a very happy Christmas.

    Cheers!

  26. Thanks Gab. Merry Christmas to you too. Hang out whenever you get time.

  27. Just in case any of you were deluded by the Murdoch, and other lame stream press, that Ron Paul didn’t have broad appeal, to the American public:
