                                       rabid scandal

03’ Warren Buffett on derivatives:
                                 "financial weapons of mass
Augustus Gloop is stuffing his

And if a few bankers and financiers
were jailed we would all be
                                 better off now?

04’ U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission relaxed

                               in dung-bloom burst cycle peak
values of securities hand-cuffed to
                                                 US real estate
                                                    like pennies

Fannie Mae and co. stroll on…
                                       predatory lending and/or
mortgage fraud,

Gov and central banks
                    react with fiscal stimulus, an iron fist
further funny-money policy buffering

is their a truly honest judge
                          anywhere on this planet earth?

and dullards CasaPound hijack a turtle

08’ The U.S. Senate's
Levin–Coburn Report sez
crisis was the result of:
                             "high risk, complex
financial products
                       undisclosed conflicts of interest
                               the failure of regulators
the credit rating agencies
                            and the market itself to rein
in the excesses of
Wall Street"

Greedy sneaky double crossing
                                 fraud and conspiracy to commit robbery
     were not considered seriously
in 08’?

                                                    Hanging from a cemetery door:
                          TO BIG TO FAIL

Several major financial institutions

                                  According to the CIA World Factbook
from 2010 to 2011 the unemployment rates
in Spain, Greece, Ireland, Portugal,
and the UK increased
                                   and Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone

11’ financial crisis inquiry
                          committee found that…

shadow banking system – opaque
and laden with short term
                                      debt – that rivaled the size
            of the trad. banking system.

         “criminals have no intellectual interests?” Ez, LXXVI

who knew the multitrillion-dollar
                                  repo lending market?
off-balance-sheet entities? and
                           abuses of over-the-counter
                derivatives were hidden from view
                                                        who Who WHO?

The crisis was avoidable
                                  disinformation ops on behalf of
international finance capitalism

like giving bunk directions to an
                                  elderly blind tourist

mass protest movements
responding to crime wave
with peaceful alternatives, some
                               riots and open revolts bloom

12’ By the end of 11’
            Germany was estimated to have
made more than €9 billion
out of the crisis
                           investors flocked like vultures to safer
but near zero interest rate German
                                     federal gov. bonds, binds, bundles, bunds, punds

12’ July, the
Netherlands Austria
Finland benefit from
                                                zero or negative interest rates
may the reader pause for reflection

                                          the debt crisis crime wave forced
5 out of 17 Eurozone countries
                to seek help from other nations
by Dec. 12’
                                        and no such thing as public opinion

16 Dec. 2010
the Euro Council agreed
a two line cocaine fuelled amendment to the
                                                  EU Lisbon Treaty to allow a
permanent bail-out
                              mechanism to be established
                                  by political chicanery

the Euro Stability Mechanism (ESM)
is a permanent rescue funding
                                  programme to suck seed
the temporary Euro’ Financial
         Stability Facility
              and the Euro’ Financial Stabilisation Mechanism

after the Federal Constitutional Court
of Germany had confirmed
                                          legality of the

London excluded from
future financial regulations
including proposed EU financial
transaction tax
                            and crime minster Cameron juggles
his nukes
           who tried to buy peace with money?

26 countries had agreed to the plan
leaving U.K as only
                         country not willing
to join.

in case of economic shocks
policy makers try to improve
by depreciating the currency
                       as currently in Iceland
which beat-off the biggest financial
crisis in economic history

                                           13’ China, India, and Iran
with sluggish growth
some drone attacks and
                 terrorism have NOT entered

however eurozone countries
cannot devalue their
                                        as Silvio Gessel and C. H. Douglas
and Ez might suggest

this may nip usury in the bud
         and present a new solution to
                                                      boom bust cycles
                              derivatives and crimes against nature
                                                          crimes against humanity

“A system which becomes in practice merely another hidden and irresponsible tyranny is no better than any other gang of instigators to theft and oppression—Ez, the proof of the pudding. 1937.
