Keiser report 477

Introducing : Collateralized Rental Agreement Payment Streams

In other words another kind of Derivative and just as worthless as all the other 640 trillion worth out in the market .Get ready for the mother of all crashes ,there will be no bailing out ,no bailing in when this one implodes !

Brian M. Lucey

From the industry that brought you CMOs where mortgage payments of …ahem… various kinds of quality were bundled up and by the power of greyskull math deemed to be as good as the best of the elements therein comes…So, here we have CRAPS. As murky as the output and as risky as the game, this combines both in one hypertoxic proof that YEAH BABY WALL STREET IS BACK IN THE GAME!

A bond backed by rental payments. Yes…. Its true

Two major Wall Street firms are in detailed discussions to create and sell the world’s first bond backed by home-rental payments, people familiar with the matter say.

why? WHY !!!!

Investors still are hungry for the high returns that are likely to accompany a first-of-its-kind deal, which would be viewed as more risky than well-known securities.

duh… so these risky things, because people welch on…

More lies by Irish Government as Property Tax pays Bondholders

 

Fluoride causes cancer

How safe do you think your drinking water is where you live?

Do you filter your water before drinking from the tap?

Fluoride-Free Water does not believe it is safe to drink tap water in Ireland which has been fluoridated.

Why not? Water fluoridation was known, from the start, to cause dental fluorosis in at least 10% of children exposed to it. Dental fluorosis is irreversible tooth enamel damage for life (see pictures below). We believe that drinking the chemicals used in fluoridation is an unecessary risk to health. According to the Department of Health report, Forum on Fluoridation Ireland 2002, “Roughly 50% of an absorbed amount of fluoride will be excreted in the urine during the following 24 hours and most of the remainder will become associated with calcified tissue (bones and teeth).”

Among the agents listed on page 192 of the report by the Department of Health are Arsenic, Mercury, Chromium, Lead, Nickel, Silicon, Fluoride (Hydro Fluoro Silicic Acid – H2SiF6). Currently, 71% of the public water supplies in the Republic of Ireland contain these agents.

We are a non-profit, independent, campaign group who believe that the policy of water fluoridation is very harmful to people, animals, and aquatic life; and that it also damages our environment and is totally unethical, and illegal. The agent, Hydro Fluoro Silicic Acid (H2SiF6), in water fluoridation is a listed poison under Irish Poisons Act 1982, First Schedule, Part 11 (SI 188).

Most of Europe does not fluoridate its drinking water for health, legal and environmental reasons, as you can see below.

Impact of Dental Fluorosis on your teeth

Dental fluorosis is tooth enamel damage for life. This damage is clearly seen in the photographs of dental fluorosis shown on this page. Promoters of water fluoridation knew in advance that at least 10% of children would be affected with this condition under the water fluoridation policy. Children, their parents and guardians, did not get a chance to refuse water fluoridation and avoid this damage. Help us protect future generations from this damage by saying NO to water fluoridation today……..

DON’T LOSE INTEREST IN THE GREEK SPHERE: it is being crushed by maniacs.

Great article ,please keep them comming!

The Slog

mykonosThe most beautiful country in Europe is still being crushed mercilessly by the Troika and its fat collaborators. Pay attention: we are going to be next.

A huge hat-tip goes to the Hellenic heroes who slave 24/7 writing Keep Talking Greece – still the best-informed source about the realities of EC scorched earth nihilism in Greece – for many of the highlights that follow.

On 23rd July, Eurobarometer research recorded  that 98% of Greeks thought their economy “poor”, and 90% do not trust the government.

The next day, Germany started playing games again, threatening to delay €2.5 billion bailout tranche to Greece.

The day after that, two other gigantic turds fell from a great height onto the ordinary, innocent Greek people: having closed over a thousand schools in two years, the Troika declared that more would have to go as repayment’s were not on track. This track, by the…

Strategic Defaults in Irish Mortgages – What do and dont we know?

Brian M. Lucey

Irish residential and Buy to let mortgages are in a mess. The latest Central Bank data indicate that by value 16.5% of all residential mortgages are in arrears accounting for 12.3% of all mortgages. The charts below show the evolution of this situation. Note that these are only for residential mortgages. Buy to Let are a separate problem, and are commercial loans that if in default should be foreclosed on. There may well be an issue with cross collaterisation of these to residential but again thats a separate issue.

marrears2MArrears

One of the issues that arises is “strategic default”, that is to say how many of these 142,000 mortgages in arrears are “wont pay” rather than “cant pay”. The simple answer is we do not know. That doesn’t stop the assumption that “its a lot”. Today we see in an otherwise excellent discussion by Davy stockbrokers on the banks the statement…

The Tuatha Dé Danann

 

By Séamas Ó Sionnaigh

The Tuatha Dé Danann are a race of supernaturally-gifted people found in the indigenous literature and folklore of Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man who were adapted from the Celtic religious beliefs of the pre-Christian Gaelic peoples. Over the course of a thousand years and more they were central to much of the literary output of the Gaelic nations, including their speculative histories, explanatory geographies, genealogies, sagas and poetry. Their lasting influence was to remain, albeit greatly debased and diluted, in Irish and Scottish folklore, and is still to be found in some contemporary works of fiction, drama and art.

Origins

When Ireland and Scotland made the conversion to Christianity in the 5th to 7th centuries CE the countries’ new monastic schools gradually developed an innovative literary corpus of histories, genealogies and toponyms based in part upon the older oral traditions of the Gaelic peoples and in part upon an “approved” body of Biblical, ecclesiastical and Classical texts. This lent the emerging Christian societies a broad sense of continuity with their pre-Christian past as well as co-opting older beliefs and customs to the new proselytizing faith. However, those previously worshipped as gods and goddesses amongst the Irish, Scots and Manx presented something of a theological challenge to the monastic scribes as the process of assimilating indigenous oral beliefs to the new literary faith developed. Seemingly the preferred method of managing this quandary was to rationalize or explain away the existence of the “pagan” deities once recognised by their ancestors with a number of different theories, depending on the writer or the school of thought he adhered to.

But with a financial opening of 500.000 € this dream had soon turned in to a nightmare. Business was going very bad, interest rates were rising, he was not in position to pay back their loans – unknown if from banks or usurers.Chef Botrini stayed one week in the restaurant of Bofos, registered mismanagement practices and applied his successful recipes both in management and cooking. In the reality-show episode audience saw Bofos complying with Botrini’s advices and eyeing full of hope a prosperous future.Yet success was not meant to settle. Soon the situation reached a deadlock. Bofos started desperately looking for a solution, he had even initiated procedures to sell the family house in order to cover up some of his debts.
