My Birthday/Eternal Youth

I’m almost twenty kilos lighter than two years ago.  I have no reason to believe that I’m not getting younger.  I have no reason to believe that I haven’t sorted out how to stay young or get younger. This is an incomplete research project, and a thread who’s mortal life must be numbered in days and not in years. I’ve seen enough to know that the worst thing you can do is purport to have the knowledge that can save lives.  This you will never be forgiven for.   The project to grant eternal youth is the most dangerous project of all.  So we will have to put this burst of manic enthusiasm down to “a birthday thing”.  After all a “niece” said that February was “the month of love”.  These are things to get over-enthusiastic about;  Adopted nieces and that sort of month.

The alkaline water is a big part of this experiment. If I wake up I can check the voltage in my wrist forearms and elbows (I have an elbow injury so this is where I’m concentrating on. So just now I got readings of only 15,s and 5,s which is very low (-15 millivolts, -5 millivolts). The sore elbow needs to be at -50 millivolts to heal. After drinking alkaline water and zapping electricity into where you read your pulse, as well as into my elbows, I can get readings of 50 in both elbows, my pulse, and 25′s in most places elsewhere. So I can get pretty good feedback and quickly affect my ability to heal.

If one had cancer in a known place, and one could reach that place, then the combination of alkaline water and the biomodulator zapping electrons at it, ought to starve the cancer cells of electrical energy. Or even kill many of the cancer cells outright. But soon I’ll put up a youtube to show what the consequences of publicising such a prospect can be.

Results of two weeks experimentation.

Just as one component of this health kick, I’ve been trying to keep four strategic points (1 point near each elbow, and one near each wrist where one takes ones pulse) up near -50 millivolts. Sadly experience seems to be telling me that this is nearly impossible without aerobic exercise. I say this having just adjusted my alarm clock, which had already been set at an outrageously early time, in order to accomodate some sort of jogging or something, in the wee hours of the morning.   Alkaline water is very helpful to the goal of hitting these metrics. Jacking electrical energy into my pulse can help. More prudent amounts of electrical energy sent into specific areas, that are low voltage due to sickness or injury is critical, but the results (ie raising voltage in the injured area) are fleeting without pushing up body voltage entirely. One would think this could be done without hitting the road or the gym again, but the feedback I’m getting from my Tennant biomodulator is telling me this is not the case.

BOB BECK DIED OF A HEART ATTACK

HERE IS HOW TO AVOID HEART ATTACKS

Also if one comes home from work and kicks back to some gigantic protein and fat-feast, and then on top of that falls back into a comfortable momentum of one alcoholic drink after another, ones body voltage falls to such a shocking extent, that it seems impossible to imagine that one could be utilising the wonderful fats and proteins to any good effect.

So it looks like I’ll have to get used to smaller snacks, and frequent bouts of aerobic exercise, to maintain the voltage targets I’ve been trying to set myself. (Oh the humanity.)

One fellow I tested came up with -50 millivolts off his own steam. I was pretty shocked by that. But the explanation is that he is young, fit, a vegetarian, and had just been working pretty hard. Those vegetarian lunches don’t pull down the voltage like half a dozen sausages would. But on the other hand one wonders if the vegetarian gear, would give you the nutrition to build the best new cells, even if it clearly leaves you with the voltage to do so.

My plan calls for me to hit these voltage targets AND to get the high quality fat, and protein nutrition. So I’ll have to utilize all the weapons at my disposal to do so. This is not going to be easy.

  1. Well this news is consistent with the regression of your mental age, Bird. You seem to be in your early teens now, heading towards kindergarten.

    This “project” will go the same place as your Maori ancestors sacred sites and cancer projects, that is, nowhere.

    Also why are you talking about saving lives? You’ve never done this and your quack “remedies” can only endanger further the health of people with serious diseases. That is, if anyone took any adopted your quackery.

  2. “Well this news is consistent with the regression of your mental age, Bird. You seem to be in your early teens now, heading towards kindergarten.”

    Lol Benjamin Bird has a kind ring to it. Just think, in a few years time he’ll be in diapers doing what he does best. Screaming and everyone.

  3. This is the level of maturity that Benjamin Bird is currently at I think.

    • Good video. But not understanding German its hard to know whether he’s blowing his top at Catallaxy, the last Krugman article, or some NASA sychophant.

  4. Happy birthday, beautiful.

  5. Thanks Philomena. The girls are taking me out for dinner tonight. This is easily the best birthday I’ve had in years. Compared to now, I feel like I’ve been sick for a very long time, although I didn’t really recognise myself as being so.

    • Incredible. I had to pull this comment out of spam.

  6. WTF is this shit?

    The Springsteen version is a million times better.

    • A reasonable point. If I don’t take this off-air, I’ll replace that video with the Bob Beck lecture.

  7. This fellow needed a bodyguard to conduct lectures, that he was making no money on. His bodyguard felt the need to disguise himself with a golliwog wig and dark glasses. Scientifically speaking most disease is very easy to cure. But banker loans on expensive therapies come first.

  8. enjoy your birthday you madman. (edited. No lies Jason) but an always interesting one and sometimes we learn from you (particularly your recommendations of Norman Mailer and Cormac McCarthy)

  9. Obama has just been declared in contempt of court, for not responding to a subpoena, to do with proving his eligibility for office. His suspect eligibility was denied by you, and yet obvious prior to his election. So whose the lunatic Jason? Surely a lunatic is someone who refuses to acknowledge reality. Like the reality of physics with regards to the collapse of three buildings.

    • “Obama has just been declared in contempt of court, for not responding to a subpoena, to do with proving his eligibility for office.”

      No he hasn’t, he was accused of that by the birthers, but there was no court ruling, so your pronouncement is wrong.

      • Clearly if you are subpoenaed to go to court, and you don’t show up, then colloquially you are in contempt of court, even if you are not declared to be in contempt. So you can see how people would be saying he was in contempt, though he’s not officially declared to be so. Since who the fuck misses a subpoena? Only people who are on the lam in some way. Its the most extraordinary thing. And its a clear indication that our media is now fully-owned by the shadow government. Or else this sort of behavior would be utterly impossible. Don’t even try and contradict this, since to even claim otherwise is just an admission of youth and/or stupidity. Anyone over 40 has to know how extraordinary it is to be ordered into court and not to even show up.

  10. What state are you talking about? This sort of case has been thrown out of one court after another, before and after the last election. What I’m talking about just happened in the last fortnight. The judge warned him that he would fail to show at his own peril………

    Actually I just checked again and you are right. The contempt ruling is yet to be made. Rather the court, for the first time, heard presentations as to the merit of the case, and they were supposed to have been given a chance for supplemental presentations today ….. meaning February the 2nd American time. So yeah you did get it right. But its the very first time the court has heard evidence against the usurper on this topic.

    See he’s not only a usurper. He’s a full-blown murderer. He murdered an American citizen, and then murdered his 16 year old kid, and a bunch of other innocents after that. So he’s filth, and he really needs an appointment with the executioner.

  11. Cool rap song by Vinnie Paz:

    • I urge people to listen to this a few times. Not just for the marvelous lyrics. But dig the wonderful, if repetitive, high-end piano-icing.

      This is really what rap oughta be like. My new hero Vinnie Paz.

  12. I”m getting real sick of your addiction to pseudo-evidence you pathetic cunt Dialectickaos. If you have some real evidence give-it-up for fucksakes. If you a real document, an authentic explanation. Don’t you even know what EVIDENCE IS!!!! you cunt? Fucking hell. Do better. If you find actual evidence I’ll acknowledge it as such.

  13. Corsi is very reliable. Alex is a good bloke, but he’s spread very thinly, and any one statement of his cannot be relied on as being totally accurate.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Now its not just Dialectickaos. Why is it that the kids are addicted to innuendo and pseudo-evidence. This fetish is spreading to older people as well. You may be talking about some aspect of cancer research and someone will say “Well how come the specialists aren’t doing this” as if they were making a scientific argument. Thats just one example. Take the Keynesian multiplier. The entirety of catallaxy believes in it on the basis that “Barro said so” even after you’ve explained that Barro was using GDP as his metric.

    Barro isn’t a serious economist anyway. He’s basically a transplanted physicist. The second element of pseudo-evidence where Barro is concerned is that “He has impeccable conservative credentials” Where the fuck is that one going? The third pseudo-argument was to do with tactics. They would say “Its better to beat the Keynesians on their own terms” That one is tactically idiotic even before the reality of the Keynesian multiplier being a bogus doctrine objectively.

    Its all pseudo-evidence. The entirety of the global warming fraud built only on bad data and pseudo-evidence.

  14. Dumb wop reckons that the US economy is on the upsurge:

    “The economy is gathering a decent head of steam Rabz.

    I’ve been thinking this was going on since about October last year as the US numbers kept coming surprising on the upside while Europe looked like imploding. I thought that if Europe didn’t fall over the cliff just yet the US could really rock and roll this year, which could put Odumbo is a firmer place, although I still think he will lose.

    The US is coming back, despite the headwinds this prick is causing.

    People shouldn’t think that a better economy means Odumbo is unassailable. Gore lost even before the tech crash was obvious to voterland. And he lost because he was a dick.”

    You idiot Cambria. There is no recovery happening in the US. Its the greater depression that is happening there with no light at the end of the tunnel.

    Inflation is around 6% and about to swing upwards. Unemployment is over 20%. That isn’t any sort of recovery.

    http://www.shadowstats.com/

    • Those inflation and unemployment stats are bullshit Bird.

      WHAT MAKES YOU SAY THAT?

  15. Isn’t that interesting. Birdflapz an expert in statistics.

    • BEFORE YOU MOVE ON HOW ABOUT RESOLVING THIS STATISTICAL DEAL. CLEARLY THIS IS A FULL-TIME GIG FOR JOHN WILLIAMS. THIS IS HIS BUSINESS. THIS IS HIS SPECIALTY. NOW ARE YOU CLAIMING THAT IN FACT ITS YOU WHO ARE THE EXPERT IN STATISTICS? ARE YOU CLAIMING YOU HAVE FOUND A MISTAKE IN JOHN WILLIAMS’ STATISTICAL REASONING, OR IN HIS DATA? WE WANT TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER BEFORE YOU START JUMPING FROM ONE FOOT TO THE OTHER.

  16. Imagine if one day Birdflapz grew up to be a reasonable fellow. A devotee and able practitioner of reason. He would have me to thank for relentlessly correcting all his bad habits.

  17. When you see someone just brilliant like me, who can audit the reasoning in a wide and disparate set of subjects, reflect on the reality that its not that difficult. Its really about practicing good habits of reason with some level of ruthlessness. There is no time for ones personal emotions to encourage one to adopt bad thinking habits. Ones personal emotions might encourage one to throw things at the wall. But one ought not let one allow this sort of thing to get in the way of good habits of reason.

    • There’s another example of that modesty that you like to attribute to yourself. YES I’M A MODEST FELLOW AND DON’T TAKE MYSELF TOO SERIOUSLY. ON THE OTHER HAND I TAKE “PROCESS” SERIOUSLY, WHEN IT COMES TO A RELIABLE PROCEDURE FOR HUMAN REASON. BECAUSE WE ARE NOT GIVEN TO AUTOMATIC KNOWLEDGE, SO THE REASONING PROCESS IS ALL WE HAVE.

  18. The current criminal clique going further than most to bugger unemployment numbers:

    “Allen West: Obama’s Jerking Us Around With Falsified Unemployment Numbers
    West said:

    “Can someone tell me how employment in the black community has improved at a rate three times the national average in just a few months?? With numbers like today, urban communities should be well on their way to economic recovery then! There is something suspicious about the job numbers released today and it has me very concerned,” West wondered Friday. “Is this dramatic supposed decrease in black unemployment a result of job creation or is someone playing around with the census numbers??”
    But economists immediately shot his suspicions down as “unfounded” and “paranoid.”

    Wait, no they didn’t.

    Economists reached by The Hill for comment couldn’t fully explain the unemployment rate change for the black community. William Darity, a professor of public policy at Duke University specializing in African-American studies and economics, wrote in an email to The Hill that the decline could have been due to a smaller labor force. He called the drop an “unbelievably dramatic drop” but didn’t rule out the possibility of someone tampering with the numbers; he said there was no evidence one way or the other.”

  19. If galloping inflation isn’t about to take off in any case, Obama is about to make sure of it:

    “The Obama administration is trying to fix a stubborn drag on the economy by allowing all homeowners to refinance their mortgages at lower interest rates even if they owe more than their homes are worth, tackling a difficult issue of vital concern in states key to President Barack Obama’s re-election.”

    However, compared to current policy, which is outstandingly destructive, this policy would be pretty neutral. Its merely shifting some of the outrageous interest rate subsidy, from Wall Street to homeowners.

  20. Here’s a link to the now old, but still triumphant, lecture by Steve Kates, to the Mises institute.

  21. This fellow was held to have died on my birthday, but the time difference would have it that he may have died on the 4th my time. On the other hand Ayn Rand is supposed to have been born on February the 2nd, but we may share a birthday if the time difference is taken into account. I’d be pretty happy with that actually.

    Here is the Big Boppa. I bet some of you thought he was of African-American heritage:

  22. Of course Ritchie Valens went down on that same plane on February the third with The Big Boppa. It must have punched quite a sizeable hole in the American rock and roll scene, that one plane crash:

      Keisser now? Really?

      PUT YOUR COMMENTS IN TERMS OF A SOLID ARGUMENT YOU DUMB WOP. YES REALLY. ITS THE BEST SHOW ON TV. DOESN’T MEAN EVERYTHING KEISER SAYS IS RIGHT. LIKE WHEN THE SIMPSONS WAS THE BEST SHOW ON TV, IT HARDLY MEANT THAT EVERYTHING GROENIG EVER SAID WAS RIGHT EITHER. I CAN ONLY GUESS AT WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR PRIMITIVE WOP MIND, SO I HAVE NO BASIS UPON WHICH TO COMMENT FURTHER.

      • LETS HAVE THAT ARGUMENT YOU DUMB WOP. WHAT IS THE ARGUMENT YOU ARE TRYING TO MAKE YOU PRIMITIVE?

        HAND AS A BULLSHITARTIST AND LIFELONG PARASITE. YOU ARE A USELESS EATER
        AND SURPLUS TO REQUIREMENTS.

      • Note that the young bloke, Chris Duane, who was born into a rich family with car dealerships, has basically come to virtually all the same conclusions as me, independently. And pretty much all the same TERMINOLOGY as me also, in a wide variety of subjects.

        So this excuse that you make, that I only think like I do, on account of being envious, or on not timing the housing market perfectly, or whatever your pathetic excuse is today, or at any given excuse-making time …….. well none of it is going to wash.

        One comes to the conclusions that I come too, on the basis of years of scholarship, and intellectually-honest reason and logic. I’m not letting my own situation cloud my thinking. I’m basically a scientist, when it comes down to it …… (“so there” you stupid wop).

  26. I”ve just found a fellow called Chris Duane, who appears to have the same views as me on a range of ideas. He’s gone so far as to sort out a lot of free courses, on some of the monetary ideas. So far most of what he has to say appears well worth listening to.

  27. Here is some more idiocy from a bunch of failures and science frauds, claiming to be experts on the climate. They have no expertise on the climate whatsoever. They cannot predict the climate. They have no capacity to conduct scientific research, their beliefs are entirely baseless, and there lies come as a cruel joke when people are dropping dead from the cold all over frozen Europe. But lets here these bullshitartists out anyway. Let me no if you see any actual evidence in their idiotic lies:

    “Do you consult your dentist on your heart condition? In science, as in any area, reputations are based on knowledge and expertise in a field, and on published, peer-reviewed work.

    If you need surgery, you want a highly experienced expert in the field who has done a large number of the proposed operations.

    On January 27, the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed on climate change by the climate science equivalent of dentists practicing cardiology. While accomplished in their own fields, most of these authors have no expertise in climate science. The few authors who have such expertise are known to have extreme views that are out of step with nearly every other climate expert. This happens in nearly every field of science. For example, there is a retrovirus expert who does not accept that HIV causes AIDS. And it is instructive to recall that a few scientists continued to state that smoking did not cause cancer, long after that was settled science.(NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE IN THE FIRST PARAGRAPH).

    Climate experts know that the long-term warming trend has not abated in the past decade (A STRAIGHT LIE) In fact, it was the warmest decade on record.(ANOTHER UTTERLY RIDICULOUS LIE) Observations show unequivocally that our planet is getting hotter (A LIE. ALREADY OUTDATED AROUND THE TURN OF THE CENTURY) And computer models have recently shown (IRRELEVANT. NOTE THAT THEY HAVE TO RELY ON THE FICTION OF COMPUTER MODELS) that during periods when there is a smaller increase of surface temperatures, warming is occurring elsewhere in the climate system, typically in the deep ocean.(ONLY HAPPENING IN THE MODELS. SO NOT HAPPENING AT ALL) Such periods are a relatively common climate phenomenon, are consistent with our physical understanding of how the climate system works, and certainly do not invalidate our understanding of human-induced warming or the models used to simulate that warming (ONE DOESN’T NEED TO INVALIDATE A FICTION, BY WAY OF ANOTHER FICTION, WHEN THE ORIGINAL THESIS HAS NO EVIDENCE IN ITS FAVOR WHATSOEVER, NOR ANY SOLID CHAIN OF APRIORI REASONING TO SUPPORT IT).

    Thus, climate experts also know what Kevin Trenberth actually meant by the out-of-context, misrepresented quote used in the op-ed (CHANGING THE SUBJECT AWAY FROM THE PLANET TO A DISPUTE OF WHAT SOME IRRELEVANT FELLOW ACTUALLY MEANT WHEN HE SAID SOMETHING IRRELEVANT) Trenberth was lamenting the inadequacy of observing systems to fully monitor warming trends in the deep ocean (FURTHER REINFORCING THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE NO DATA TO BUTTRESS THE WRONG ASSUMPTIONS OF THEIR MODELS) and other aspects of the short-term variations that always occur, together with the long-term human-induced warming trend.

    The National Academy of Sciences of the US (set up by president Lincoln to advise on scientific issues), as well as major national academies of science around the world and every other authoritative body of scientists active in climate research have stated that the science is clear:(SCIENCE IS NOT ABOUT STATEMENTS, NOR DOES IT HELP THEIR LACK OF EVIDENCE TO PRESS-GANG LINCOLN INTO MATTERS) the world is heating up and humans are primarily responsible(ALL BASELESS LIES) Impacts are already apparent and will increase. (TWO LIES IN ONE SENTENCE) Reducing future impacts will require significant reductions in emissions of heat-trapping gases.

    Research shows that more than 97 per cent of scientists actively publishing in the field agree that climate change is real and human-caused (ANOTHER LIE, WHICH WOULD BE SCIENTIFICALLY MEANINGLESS IF TRUE BUT A LIE NONETHELESS). It would be an act of recklessness for any political leader to disregard the weight of evidence and ignore the enormous risks that climate change clearly poses. In addition, there is very clear evidence that investing in the transition to a low-carbon economy will not only allow the world to avoid the worst risks of climate change, but could also drive decades of economic growth. Just what the doctor ordered.”

    SCIENCE IS ABOUT EVIDENCE. NOT IDIOTIC AND DISHONEST STATEMENTS LIKE THE ABOVE. IT IS NOTABLE THAT NO EVIDENCE WAS TENDERED. THESE ARE NOT SCIENTISTS. THEY ARE PUBLIC SERVANTS AND THEY ACT ACCORDINGLY.

    • WELL THE FACT IS THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SOLID REASONING BEHIND THE CLIMATE BEATUP, AND NO EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE EITHER. THIS IS A FACT.

    • Graeme, you seem to be of the opinion that that AGW is false and even global warming (regardless of whether there is a man made contribution to it) is not happening.

      Would you at least concede that:

      1)The Earth has been warming since 1750.

      NO. ITS BEEN WARMING AND COOLING AND WARMING AND COOLING. SO YOU MUST SPECIFIY TWO TIME PERIODS TO MAKE THAT CASE. SO IT HASN’T BEEN WARMING ALL THAT TIME. WE WERE IN THE LITTLE ICE AGE THEN, SO THAT MOST OF THE TIME SINCE HAS DEFINITELY BEEN WARMER.

      2) The Earth isn’t cooling since 2001.

      YES IT HAS BEEN COOLING. ITS BEEN WARMING AND COOLING AND WARMING AND COOLING. BUT 2012 IS DEFINITELY COLDER THAN 2001. SO YOU ARE WRONG AGAIN.

      3) Arctic sea ice has declined and came close to its 2007 low in 2011.

      NO YOU CANNOT MAKE THE FIRST STATEMENT YOU DOPE. YOU MUST SPECIFY TWO TIME PERIODS. SEPTEMBER 2007 WAS A VERY STRONG LOW, THIS IS QUITE TRUE. BUT THE ARCTIC HAS OFTEN CLEARED IN THE PAST. IT ALL COMES DOWN TO WHAT HAPPENS DURING THAT 3 MONTH DAY THEY HAVE, AND THE STRENGTH OF THE GULF STREAM. ITS A VERY IFFY THING. YOU MIGHT GET THROUGH ALL THE WAY ON AN ICEBREAKER IN THE 40’S AND NOT MAKE IT THROUGH AGAIN FOR 20 YEARS.

      • NO I’M GETTING SICK OF PSEUDO-ARGUMENTS. PICK UP THE QUALITY OF YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS. THINK OF THE REASONING BEHIND YOUR PATHETIC LAST STATEMENT. IT MATTERS NOT WHAT CHRISTOPHER MONKTON SAYS. WHAT MATTERS IS REALITY. GO TO REALITY DIRECT.

        CAN YOU NOT MAKE EVEN ONE FUCKING VALID ARGUMENT? IS THAT JUST BEYOND YOU? TRY COMETS AGAIN, BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT RESOLVED THAT MATTER. “COMETS ARE SNOWBALLS BECAUSE……” START WITH THAT. NO SNOW, NO ICE, NO BALL, NO SNOWBALL. YET YOU BELIEVE. YOU ARE AN IDIOT.

      • I DON’T MIND KEEPING IT FOR THE PERMANENT RECORD WHEN I MAKE A FOOLISH MISTAKE. I THOUGHT IT WAS YOU, THE FELLOW ADDICTED ENTIRELY TO PSEUDO-ARGUMENT, SO I HAD MARK HILL ALL WRONG. MARK IS A LOOSE CANNON. BUT HE’S NOT A CARBON COPY OF YOU. I THINK I’LL LEAVE MY ABSENTMINDEDNESS THERE FOR THE PERMANENT RECORD.

    The international debt market way overmatches the equities market in todays world. They overmatch it in terms of sheer volume, but its pretty clear now that they overmatch everything in terms of influence.

    We have a situation where the international money power has undue influence and nowhere moreso than in the media. Media companies have such stable revenues, that they wind up being highly geared and in thrall to the money-lenders.

    I’m not really fearful of Gina’s influence. But the “old man” (you know who I mean) has clearly sold out. Doesn’t matter what a righteous young bloke he was, or what an outstandingly effective executive he was in middle age. He’s a big sellout now, and our media is in the hands of the great international debt machine.

    I recommend the reading of Dr Davies observations on economics. I’m not saying he is correct in all respects. But as a latecomer to the subject he brings a fresh perspective to the mess that has been made of economics in Australia in the modern era.

    My solution to the problem of media, would be that the media operating in this country needed to be operating as sole traders, and that their papers be debt-free. They can buy in or pirate news stories overseas, without our government recognising copyright. But they have to be immune to the influence of debt-masters the world over.

    Once you are an highly-leveraged bigshot who owns a thousand newspapers, you may prance about the world, and people may call you dangerous, and you may even get a kick out of your reputation as a powerful fellow. But you are really just a puppet dancing on a string. A Marionette with bad knees.

    If the old man wants to keep his local newspapers, rather than sell them all off to locals, all he would need to do is to pay out the debts on them, and come home, and be one of us again. We should tell our aspiring newspaper people that they can write what they like, but they cannot be in bondage to anyone.

    Its better for newspaper owners to be real men, and a law unto themselves, and not to be famously rich, but serving masters who are not part of the Australian scene, or loyal to Australian citizens.

  33. Sinclair Davidson is terminally stupid, because even after attempting to school the dumb bastard, he still assumes in a knee-jerk fashion, that manufacturing success means government subsidy. It would be easier if one could have a theory of demon-possession.

  34. Note that Sinclair Davidson’s terminal idiocy is exactly the same of his opponents in this particular controversy. He idiotically thinks that manufacturing success means government subsidy, but he yearns for manufacturing failure. Whereas his opponents, in this particular, pro/anti manufacturing stoush, also assume that manufacturing success means government subsidy. But they are after manufacturing success.

    I submit that both sides of the argument are woefully ignorant of economics, but if we are ranking stupid, Sinclairs side of the argument is more stupid than the other side. Since at least the other side see manufacturing success as a worthy goal.

    The answer is economics-education. The answer is to show economics-ignorance a clean pair of heals.

  35. No I’m not going to have an absolute moron like Joseph Cambria lie and claim that I am not totally solid of economics. This is the same Joseph Cambria that has NEVER seen a financial sector subsidy he didn’t like. The same Joseph Cambria, whose learning does not exceed Keynesian bullshit 101, who claimed, like an absolute fuckwit, that you cannot cut government spending in a recession. What an ignorant cunt you are Joseph Cambria.

  36. “My solution to the problem of media, would be that the media operating in this country needed to be operating as sole traders”

    Uh yeah, great idea, Bird.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Yes indeed it is a great idea. And you have no valid argument in reason against it Jason Soon. We won’t have any valid argument coming from you to say why I’m wrong. There is simply nothing in economic science that stipulates that artificial persons need be recognised. We can start the limiting process of artificial persons with the media, to take down the international banker influence.

    You have absolutely no valid argument to make against this. You are posing. You are writing checks your brain cannot cash.

  37. Nowhere in Austrian or British Classical economics, do we find an explanation as to why there is some great social advantage to having the existence of artificial persons. The theoretical case that they are of some sort of surpassing value is simply not there. There is nothing in price theory to suggest that the whole thing cannot be done on a real persons basis.

    Now I can see how in some cases they would constitute an advantage, in small ways. But if they are the big problem here and if we find they are too hard to merely limit, then they ought to be abolished. Or phased out first, and then brought back in a limited way, when their supporters find out what valid reasons that they have for supporting these artificial persons. Artificial persons, in the current context, are just a lot of overhead. We have to give them all this legal cover, and we are forced to regulate them. We pay for all the corporate lawyers that they necessitate, and their existence has allowed for the incredible destructiveness we are seeing in the US and in Europe.

  39. Two minutes in Rickards runs through a number of recommendations, which include less regulations for business, more for banks, splitting up the banks, and banning derivatives. All good practical advice, supposing you want reasonably functioning capital markets. On the other hand if you are willing to pretend that we already have free enterprise, like some sort of ignorant lunatic, and you cry libertarian on this score, well you may have a different point of view.

  40. Of course I’m the victim of Orwellian language here. In terms of volume we don’t need more bank regulation. Its just that until fractional reserve has been phased out for maybe 10 years or more, we have to take an entirely different attitude to banks, as we do to normal business. We also need to take a somewhat different attitude to sole traders then we do to large artificial persons. We’ve got to be willing to push banks around. Once they are split up, fractional reserve is banned, and limited liability means 100% equity finance, then we can treat all business the same.

  41. Graeme,

    Have you heard of “Brian Peskin’s Peskin Protocols”?

  42. Check it

  43. Right. I’ve had a look. What exactly is the point?

  44. I think I see another feeble pseudo-argument on the way here.

  45. Um it’s just interesting and may be of interest to you given your health kick.

  46. No seriously. What is the pseudo-argument you have on the fly here? You never have a valid argument. What is the pseudo-argument you have working for your little mind here?

  47. NO YOU WERE CAUGHT OUT TRYING ON YET ANOTHER PSEUDO-ARGUMENT AND YOU ARE TOO EMBARRASSED TO SO MUCH AS PUT WORDS TO IT. YOU ARE PATHETIC FELLA. I JUST DON’T KNOW WHERE ALL YOU ANTI-REASON KIDS ARE BEING CREATED. CLEARLY THIS IS A NEW AGE OF UNREASON, WORKING ONLY ON THE MOMENTUM OF PAST AGES. THE CURRENT CULTURAL SETUP IS SO USELESS THEY CANNOT EVEN EMPLOY THEIR POPULATION. ONE HOPES THAT THE US WILL GET BACK ON STEADY LEGS SOON.

  48. Right. Hang on a minute. I thought you were Birdflapz. But you are Mark Hill. So I just have no idea where you are at.

  49. Yeah he looks alright so far Mark. No detail there to work with. Thanks for the tip.

  50. A lot of the time Sinclair writes very good essays, and I find myself grudgingly having to acknowledge this. But just recently he’s got a terrible terrible article over at ABC Unleashed. Ghastly, wrong and ignorant in every respect:

  51. I managed to get a post through. The only one so far not taking a swipe at Sinclair:

    We ought to make this very clear; Fiscal policy for demand management is a lie. Its always been a lie. Its never worked, no evidence has ever suggested that it ever did work.

    Also when considering if fiscal policy affects aggregate demand, GDP is NOT the right metric to decide this since GDP is not the entirety of aggregate demand, or any reasonable approximation of aggregate demand. In fact the fake evidence that would suggest that fiscal policy “works” in this regard, only shows that spending can be redirected from where it IS NOT picked up in the GDP metric, to where IT IS picked up in the GDP metric. The whole thing is an enormous intellectual fraud that can only help the banking sector at the expense of everyone else.

    This is quite wrong. Deficits never have a place in economic policy, and fiscal policy is totally irrelevant to demand management. You’ve have been suckered by Keynesian unscience, and by neoclassical ignorance.

    The latter view is the correct view. The idea that fiscal policy can be used to alter aggregate demand, is illogical voodoo-economics, without any empirical support in its favor.

  53. I’ve been trying to keep four strategic points (1 point near each elbow, and one near each wrist where one takes ones pulse) up near -50 millivolts. Sadly experience seems to be telling me that this is nearly impossible without aerobic exercise. I say this having just adjusted my alarm clock, which had already been set at an outrageously early time, in order to accomodate some sort of jogging or something, in the wee hours of the morning.

    Alkaline water is very helpful. Jacking electrical energy into my pulse can help. More prudent amounts of electrical energy sent into specific areas, that are low voltage due to sickness or injury is critical, but the results are fleeting without pushing up body voltage entirely. One would think this could be done without hitting the road or the gym again, but the feedback I’m getting from my Tennant biomodulator is telling me this is not the case.

    Also if one comes home from work and kicks back to some gigantic protein and fat-feast, and then on top of that falls back into a comfortable momentum of one alcoholic drink after another, ones body voltage falls to such a shocking extent, that it seems impossible to imagine that one could be utilising the wonderful fats and proteins to any good effect.

    So it looks like I’ll have to get used to smaller snacks, and frequent bouts of aerobic exercise, to maintain the voltage targets I’ve been trying to set myself. Oh the humanity.

    One fellow I tested came up with -50 millivolts off his own steam. I was pretty shocked by that. But the explanation is that he is young, fit, a vegetarian, and had just been working pretty hard. Those vegetarian lunches don’t pull down the voltage like half a dozen sausages would. But on the other hand one wonders if the vegetarian gear, would give you the nutrition to build the best new cells, even if it clearly leaves you with the voltage to do so.

    My plan calls for me to hit these voltage targets AND to get the high quality fat, and protein nutrition. So I’ll have to utilize all the weapons at my disposal to do so. This is not going to be easy.

  54. “For forty years, people have tried to get Solar to work. Now, the worst possible thing for the industry has occurred: The Left are serious about trying to help it.”

    This quote comes via GAB on catallaxy. Look this is a tragedy. We WANT a healthy niche solar energy industry. They are going to fuck it completely with subsidies. Where is the patience? Where is the long-term view. All subsidies ought to be wiped immediately and substituted by long-term tax exemptions. Subsidies always create unsustainable and inefficient industries. This is not some ongoing co-incidence, but a basic economic law. Long-term tax exemptions would lead to a small industry, its true. But an industry, however tiny, that became more cost-effective each quarter. Here is the rest of this depressing screed that GAB had cut and pasted:

    “The Large-Scale Solar Subsidies are bountifully generous on an unprecedented scale that involves taxing everything else that moves, but even that generosity is not enough to compete with…wait for it… the even more insanely lavish Small-Scale Solar Subsidies. Who would have thought? Remember these are the same people who tell us that the “free market solution is best”. They offered three times the going rate for rooftop solar electricity, and through utterly predictable market mechanics, created a glut in rooftop solar panels as every man and his dog rushed in to get free electrons from their roofs, and on good sunny days, even cheques in the mail. Now, the large-scale projects are struggling to get major electricity retailers to sign long-term contracts.”

    We just have to be patient. Getting energy right is a multi-decadal deal. It cannot be reached by stealing off one lot of people and shoving that value down the toilet of subsidies. You would think these people would have learnt something from the insulation mess, the NBS crime, the school building revolution, and like gaudy failures.

    “We shouldn’t confuse public debt and private debt either. A corporation with little debt can be characterised as having a lazy balance sheet. That is not a criticism of government. At the same time, however, government should have some debt.”

    For goodness sakes this is just nonsense. Business is arm-twisted into debt simply because the banks pass on the subsidy they have managed to steal off the rest of us, under fractional reserve. And there is just never an excuse for government debt. Goodness me. Where is this coming from? Now I hear finance people claiming that debt makes business people work harder and be more ruthless with their assets. But so does growth-deflation with little debt. A far healthier paradigm.

    “”First thing to note is that private debt doesn’t matter for public policy purposes.”

    This is a totally ignorant statement but oh so typical of Australian “neoclassical” economists. Both sides of the Australian economics profession support parasites. The Keynesians support government parasitism, and never see public debt they don’t like. The neoclassicals support banking and financial sector parasites, and never see private debt that they don’t like. In either case its a situation of “Everything in the banks, nothing outside the banks, nothing against the banks.”

    Both these camps represent a rebellion against economic science. If you think you as a small businessman or you as a worker are being neglected by the profession then you would be correct in this suspicion. Small businessmen particularly are never part of their advocacy.

  57. Eric Dollard on faster than light transmission of electricity through the air, using SCALAR WAVES. This appears to be old technology, going back to Tesla. Once I’ve saved a bit of money I’ll be using a scalar wave transducer, to be able to send electricity deep inside the body. It must be understood that “c” as a peak velocity, was illogical from the start, and there has never been empirical evidence for such a fantasy.

  58. Looks like flat learning curves sdfc, has shown up at unleashed to have a go at Sinclair. Wait in line fool:

    “No, constantly running surpluses withdraws money from the economy (government debt is equivalent to currency in our monetary system).”

    You are being ridiculous:

    1. Obviously the banks can create private debt, if they aren’t able to create public debt. You can have surpluses and an overheating economy.

    2. Obviously the mint can create cash-money, if the banks aren’t creating ponzi-money.

    Clearly you’ve got yourself entirely confused, because you haven’t segregated in your mind just what is fiscal policy, and what is monetary policy.

  59. Latest electrical readings, about an hour after aerobic exercise ….. 35, 35, 35, 50.

    Excellent. Success. Since the 50 is in the injured elbow, so its in full-blown healing mode, and the other readings are pretty good for this time of night.

    Why Sinclair do you “…doubt the mining tax will make much revenue at all…”? “Professor in the School of Economics” – a peer-reviewed reference please!

    Its not going to create much revenue, since all a profits tax does is encourage more spending, wherein tax deductions can be made against the accounting profit. So we don’t need peer review for this conclusion.

    However higher royalties would merely reduce the capital value of projects, cut out a lot of dead-losses through excess banker involvement and so higher royalties and lower company tax was the right way to go. The public service has the uncanny ability to always move the wrong way.
