As Russia sees the USA

Oct. 24th, 2012 | 09:32 pm
posted by: ershowg in policyresearch


I want to talk about the United States from the point of view of Russia.
I want to tell you about Russia as it really is.
I'm not going to lie about Russia. Any Russian will tell as I am.
U.S. looks as aggressive and as a fascist state.
The Americans and the British brought to power in the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev.
Today Russian know that Mikhail Gorbachev a traitor Russia. For what he destroyed the Soviet Union, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union Americans hired Yeltsin.
Russian President Boris Yeltsin continued destruction of Russia.
Russian people demanded a national leader and a miracle happened.
President Putin is a wonderful gift from President Yeltsin.
Putin is not dependent on the U.S. and leads the Russian policy in the interests of the Russian people.
In Russia, the president is not a puppet, but a real head.
Putin's bloody regime is a myth. This myth invented Western forces.
This is cheap propaganda. In the West, people believe in this myth. Our neighbors to the east in this myth do not believe. 
Terrorist attack September 11, 2001 was coined by the U.S. Congress. He was made with remote controlled airliners.
Due to the terrorist attacks of September 11, the U.S. came up with the myth of global terrorism. Under the guise of global terrorism the U.S. expand their influence in the East.
Indeed, Europe, Russia and the East, are aware of these crimes the U.S.. Such methods are supported monopoly dollar.
Central banks in most countries are totally dependent on the U.S. Federal Reserve.
Most of the world can not trade in their money. Foreign trade only through the dollar.
But still want to trade through its currency.
If someone decides to do so, the country is attacked by the U.S. Army.
Any country that is independent of the U.S. and Britain, Americans consider totalitarian.
Today, Russia is a strong country. We got stronger after the devastation of the nineties.
Russian government wants to restore the Soviet Union, but in another form.
Russia will have many allies in Europe and the East.
Russia is included in alliances BRICS, SCO and the Eurasian Union. Eurasian Union is an analogue of the Soviet Union.
These alliances have one goal. The purpose of this is to destroy the U.S. dollar as the monopoly.
This fall BRICS began to make external transactions through their own money. BRICS today refused dollars.
For the U.S., this means the beginning of the end.
World domination is based on the U.S. dollar. Printing dollars instead of real work. Very soon, this will not do.
When the dollar collapses, the U.S. could start a civil war.
Individual U.S. states will divide the property. Special services of Russia, Germany, China and other countries, will warm the U.S. population.
So we try to divide the United States. Our share is Alaska. Easy way to get just as easily and take away.

The Supreme Court's Health Care Ruling

Jul. 12th, 2012 | 02:03 pm
posted by: tectonic_drift in policyresearch

The Supreme Court's ruling upholds the indiviual mandate, arguing that congress is using it's taxing powers to financially penalize those that go without insurance.

Similarly, in 2007, conservative economist Greg Mankiw described insurance "mandates" and Bush's 2007 proposed health care reform as taxes or financial incentives for buying health insurance.

A short summative story on hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas. The upside: a way to get at lots of natural gas. The down: some evidence points to big risks to drinking water.

Ben Bernanke on the Fed's recent announcement to buy back T-bills.

A few excerpts:

"The FOMC decided this week that, with unemployment high and inflation very low, further support to the economy is needed. With short-term interest rates already about as low as they can go, the FOMC agreed to deliver that support by purchasing additional longer-term securities, as it did in 2008 and 2009. The FOMC intends to buy an additional $600 billion of longer-term Treasury securities by mid-2011 and will continue to reinvest repayments of principal on its holdings of securities, as it has been doing since August.

...

The Federal Reserve cannot solve all the economy's problems on its own. That will take time and the combined efforts of many parties, including the central bank, Congress, the administration, regulators and the private sector. But the Federal Reserve has a particular obligation to help promote increased employment and sustain price stability. Steps taken this week should help us fulfill that obligation.

cutting the deficit

A "simple" idea for cutting the deficit. The first line of the article: "Washington could nearly eliminate its entire $1.3 trillion federal deficit this year simply by closing loopholes in the tax code."

Alternatives to fossil fuel

Jun. 22nd, 2010 | 11:05 pm
posted by: tectonic_drift in policyresearch

Two interesting summaries about alternatives to fossil fuel.

1. A short listing of creative sources of fuel. Most surprising to me: diapers and coffee.

Would be interesting if the summary mentioned whether these technologies consume fossil fuels in an amount less than the green energy produced.


2. A country comparison of three factors: 1) Gigawatts from renewable sources, 2) portion of total energy capacity that is renewable, 3) Total dollars invested in clean energy.

Most notable to me: 30% of energy capacity in Spain is from renewable sources, 29% in Germany, 4% in U.S., and 4% in China.
