            As people become more educated slave mentality goes away and people start to thing who’s win will be better for them. Now people are bothered about their own life and stopped listening to big man. More and more Americans are deciding under who they will have a better life.

          Sutcliffe’s ‘friend’ Savile was said to have been given his own set of gold-plated keys to high-security Broadmoor mental hospital, where Sutcliffe is a patient.

          He was allegedly given bedrooms or an office at three hospitals, and yesterday more former patients came forward to say he abused them on children’s wards.

          The details come after it was reported that Sutcliffe killed his third victim, Irene Richardson, mere yards from Savile’s flat in Roundhay, Leeds, in 1977.

          These Police Communist oops…. Commissioner elections are but yet another falsity being fed to the unsuspecting public as some kind of “CHANGE!” that will be bettter for you all ….

          I advocate that people in the UK should go along to their polling booth and “spoil” their vote. Why?

          Because if you do not vote – the PTB will take your ‘no vote’ as a submission that you agree to be bound by whatever the result is WHEREAS – if you “spoil your vote” – they (PTB) cannot come back at you and impose any of the consequences upon you.

          I spoiled my vote – means that I do not agree to be suborned under the result or any of its implications.

          Spoil your vote and make sure that you and your witness bear witness to it being spoiled as a ‘matter of record’.

          Spoil your vote or be beholden under the bastards.

      I think the mormon thing played against Romney early on , I just dont think the campiagn really examied properly , just what a mess USA is drifting towards , probely shows how much the demographics have changed in just 4 yrs . Bit sad in a way , but like us in the UK the banks and politicans made an unholy alliance and its a problem they cant remedy as easily as traditional ecnomic thinking once used to do

    The massive coverage by UK broadcasters seems a bit over the top , even ITV had a show , however I tucked in to Bloomberg as Tom Keen was on panel (we miss you Tom , worst decison ever to drop your lunch time slot from UK screens) where a few slightly more interesting questions about the inevitability of the $16trn debt were run through . So let me get this right … the people of the USA have democratically re elected a president who has added an additional $4trn of debt during his term in office and on course to add a further $3trn at least to the debt by the time his second term in office ends . They have not managed to select the man who has run a real business despite being in one of the worst recessions for the last 70yrs ….
    I suppose the cute answer to yer American voter who is waking up this morning and happy that the smooth talking Obama has made the new media and demographics just edge him on through , is “are you sure that completeing what he has begun , really will work ”
    I say this as it is pretty obvious that not only do USA election campiagn funds make yer eyes water ($2bn is one figure I heard still more than a UK one per capita) , but if the economic theory that you cannot borrow your way out of debt crisis , then the $4trn aditional debt Obama has incurred onto the future taxation , in one sense could be seen as unsolicited aditional campiagn funds , very expensive at that .
    I have never bought into the feds explanation of there version of QE actually was spent properly , but that as they say is now all money up the chimney .
    I perhaps might want the wording on the $ notes to be changed to “in google we trust ” because to me 4 yrs on from the hopey change thing this election has been won on the re energised new hopey change thing , without any reference to the hard numbers of exactly what the USA economy now has to do not just for 5 yrs but proebely for the next 15yrs , an election has been won by promising not to remove new benefits that people have become attached to , without any proper explanation of how it is going to be paid for .
    I doubt Obama can managed to get payrolls numbers to 4% so he has to cut , well he could also keep on spending , but then even yer slavish democrat at some point in the next 5yrs , is going to relaise his/her paypacket containes less within it , to spend as they wish , whilst the debt doesnt actually go away , as far as I can tell all the campiagn talk was about the deficet , and not a plan for the debt .
    One question on Bloomberg was the USA could actually have its AAA credit rating cut to AA in 2 years , more is spent on servicing the debt than on education , well you know the sort of questions we became aware of when Gordon Brown couldnt explain them .
    They have voted for a completely uncertain concept about the USA economic function and perhaps more importantly a sketchy representation that did not explain the risk of introducing enlarged state spending , with no idea how the impairment from the debt will work right across the economy in the comming years , it really could start to get out of controll and snowball especially if car purchase starts to flatline .

    Whilst Mitt Romney seems to have fought a good campaign , some how he was forced into a not scarring the sheeple scenario , whilst his oppenent has just pulled off another audacity of hope manouver . Obama hasnt been a realist with the USA people at all ecnomically, its all just motivational stuff while he runs an impossible deficet , a deficet that if he tackles can on lead to a deteoration in certain bits of the econmy . True Romney would perhaps have had to endure similar bad ecnomic stats , but Obama somehow isnt going to be as keen in deficet cutting , I mean isnt the simple underlying ecnomic truth that all the growth in Obamas first term has cost $4trn in debt .
    Well OK the start of the debt was run up by Bush in a post 9/11 climate of miltary spending , but why then does not balancing the books post that period not worthy of more imparitive .

    I perhaps can only add that , if his ecnomic theory was wrong (and I think it was wrong at QE 1), in the sense that kicking the can down the road , is disengenous and dishonest , it perhaps wont be too long when people start asking different questions about the underpinning of his promises . Savings arnt going to be doing much , as in other countries and it will be interesting to see how pensions look in 5yrs time .

    The real problem will be how the working politics play out , as has been speculated some deals will have to be done , but if the hope doesnt translate into numbers on the deficet , it could all get rather angry as the feeling of going down the wrong road , for whay too long sets in .

    The election looked a very clear choice for me , Romney should have been the choice to start getting the real economy (not the borrowing boosted one) working more effectively , quite how it managed to even split along lines of republican and democrat tribes to give Obama the edge , is an interesting question , with a backdrop of the worst recession and a set of weak ecnomic signals was really saying , a failure of sorts , has occured in my view , probebely to with the way they campaign over the decades and things have always turned good , somehow . It to me was as though the reality of the situation had not got past , previous experinece of growth powering them through , whilst most commentators have it labelled as the ecnomic election , I have it as, now I have seen the results as the beguiled and whay too complacent election .

    I look forward to 4 more years of lame excuses and Stevie Wonder being told not to play very superstious till 2018 .
