swiss miss


SWISS MISS

Last night I finished up a K-book, “Caliphate” by Tom Kratmam.  It was a pretty fine piece of writing ( at times a bit on the too spicy side for my prudish tastes ) but it was by no means Post-Apocalypse.  The story takes place a hundred years after three nukes on American soil start off the global war against Muslims.  The author tried to take into account limited liquid fuels, but by and large industrial economies wage total war so it was a bit of Business As Usual other than the air force using dirigibles.  The basic theme was “look what those silly twats over in Europe did to themselves by allowing Muslims into their country”, and taking that into the future.  I think the geo-politics were well presented and thought out, even if the geology was a bit soft.  A recommended book, but not in the post-apoc genre.  The reason I bring it up was, as usually, because it struck my fancy.  And, it was a bit of synchronicity.  In the story, the Swiss are the only ones not invaded and out bred, and they are surrounded by the Muslim Europeans.  And this morning, I read about how the Swiss just violated their contract with a saver and refused to allow him to cash in his e-gold.  Why are these things related?  I think the Swiss have painted themselves into a corner financially and since they tied their boat to the Western Bankers, they are being dragged down with them.  In the near future, will there be a country there that can even afford to defend itself?

I like the Swiss, don’t get me wrong.  I think they are a bit too obsequious to Uncle Obammy, and have been for a good long while.  I think, whenever I spare the Swiss a stray thought, perhaps twice a year ( no offense, guys ), I envision cool stuff like the Swiss Franc in the 70’s not losing value, nuclear bomb shelters for most of the population ( unlike, say, the stupid twats over here who at one time had all the money in the world to defend its citizens but instead chose to print up a few pamphlets instructing the masses to drive out of the city in the event of an attack.  Good thinking!  I’m sure glad someone with a driver’s license, permission to move a multi-ton vehicle at high velocity,  was so stupid and hence dangerous that they couldn’t think of this one on their own ) and the universal militia with assault weapons in every closet ( although, to be honest, I think the move to the carbine round was retarded ).  But obviously these guys aren’t perfect.  First, they never saw the Japanese watch threat ( or, they did and thought that no one would ever buy a cheap hunk of crap to tell the time.  Well, they were right, but several decades ahead of themselves.  Now, we spent $100 for a cell phone and $80 a month to keep it, and use it for a time keeping device ).  And they seem to have gotten entangled with the whole financial shenanigans besieging the rest of us except our nuclear armed enemies.

*

Okay, I’m not claiming expertise here.  I don’t have enough research under my belt to assign blame here.  Looking at the Greeks, for instance, the whole economic crash seems to have been mostly a devious maneuver by GottDamn Golden BallSaks.  Oh, I’m sure some politicians helped them along, but by and large the population never knew what broadsided them ( Americans won’t either, but they have no excuse because they’ve been amply warned ).  Perhaps the Swiss are in roughly the same boat, the banks acting as if they owned the country ( which might be the case ).  But regardless, the end result is going to be the same.  After years of sacrificing depositor confidentiality laws to the insipid demands of our politicians, Switzerland was losing customers to Caribbean banks.  But if I had roughly a gabazillion bucks in wealth, I’d much rather have a traditionally stable as bedrock country look after my money than some fly by night pot smocking dreadlocks wearing surfer dude down south.  You’d have thought the Swiss would have come to their senses, told the US to go hump itself, and reasserted its traditional banking protections.  But…if there was more money to be made in the financial market using the last of the deposits that weren’t chased away as a stake in a giant casino ( derivatives and such ), perhaps the temptation was too great.

*

Remember, the Swiss banks had trouble from Day One of the current economic crash with their re-insurance scams and such.  Obviously this has been going on for some time, trying to fleece the public for the gain of a few rich bankers.  So, where are the Swiss going to turn now?  This morning, the globe just learned that the Swiss will not honor their own laws, breeching contracts with its depositors.  They also don’t have any more physical gold ( one analyst thinks that the global paper gold to physical gold is a ratio of 130 to 1  ).  Forget what if any effect this has on the global economic scene ( I don’t know how much more warning you personally need to see this is all going to explode.  Cyprus, now Ireland, stealing savings.  The Dutch and now the Swiss refusing to redeem gold savings.  Only keep in the bank what you can afford to lose, starting yesterday ).  The Swiss have sent the message that no one is any longer welcome to open a savings account in their country for safe keeping ( if they hadn’t already gotten the message with the Swiss turning over account names to the US ).  What is keeping this country afloat, economically?  Do they still make cuckoo clocks?  What can they export now?  Their “banker expertise”?  Anyone can be a darn fine crook, without help from Swiss bankers showing them how to do it.  Stupid bastards.

NEW Bison Blog CD For Sale
I've got an actual professional to achieve and format all the old blog on a CD-ROM. It turned out really nice- much nicer to read than online. It does cost $10 plus shipping, figure another $4 or so, which might be a bit on the higher side. But I think I'm worth it. My cut will be about $5. That isn't too much to ask for over five years of work and nearly two million words of pure brilliance. Here is the link to order:

  1. Nightshift here.....It just keeps getting better Jim. You may not know about some new things here. A bit of background. My soon to be ex is trying to buy a house. Of course we have to split the equity on current place. We have been saving cash.

    Bank needs so much down, closing costs ect. She tells them she has it covered with cash. Banks says "where did it come from?" "Savings" replies wife. Bank says DHS (Yes Obammys private army) has to see a paper trail where the money came from. Not the old $10K cash limit, this was on less than $3K for starters. The DHS will not let the bank take it as a down payment. You cant even buy more that $2k in postal money orders on the same day without committing a crime. My buddy bought some gun stuff that was over $2K and found out that one.

    Pretty soon you wont be able to spend more that $100 at walmart. The old addage of keeping cash at home will be destroyed. They cant take our money unless its in the bank.

    Don't believe it? Ask your bank if you can use cash for a down payment. I asked a second one and got the same info. They will let you deposit as much cash as you want, just wont qualify as a paper trail.

    Its so they (DHS) can fight terrorism. Bull Pucky! Its for the children!

    Papers please.

    1. Eight years ago no one thought anything of me buying $3300 in money orders to buy a chunk of land. Look how quick THAT changed. Thanks, I had no idea on any of that. Pay attention people. If you don't direct deposit and pay for EVERYTHING electronically, you are a terrorist. Of course, why not? You're reading this, Survival Blog, etc., you are already on the black helicopter lists.

  3. And Jim, the heck with Obammy cutting off the overseas guns & ammo or the Swiss dissing gold, they are not the triggers.

    What about FOOD?!

    I'm too busy reading my Kindle to check for myself... ;P
