New York City is getting tough on so called Eco crime. Every day officers dressed in green uniforms patrol the city to make sure no one is breaking environmental laws. Historically focused on hunting and fishing violations in Upstate New York, the force has been around since 1880. Now they moved to the city, where they patrol the streets armed with guns and handcuffs.
This is a very scary Graph. It show the schedule for when ARM mortgages reset. The first peak between 2007 and 2008 was the first wave that many people have already felt.
The Next wave starts in May of 2010. Those greens bars are the especially bad ones. Those are mortgages where people are making less then “interest only” payments. So in fact every month they become more in debt by making their payments.
The first crash was painful, and there is a chance the second crash that is coming won’t be as bad because there will be in theory less defaults.
Now factor in the recession. What if people keeping losing their jobs and this turns into a depression? We’ll having resetting mortgages in the middle of an economic depression.
How well do you think that will go over?
You should take ten minutes and go read THIS story, he explains it much better.
In a blatant BIG BROTHER move a new Kent Crimestoppers campaign targeting those living off the proceeds of crime was launched at Kent Police Headquarters in Maidstone on 19th May 2008, in South West England.
Kent Crimestoppers encourages people to turn their neighbors in, if they suspect they are living a lifestyle that isn’t supported by their income.They say the campaign will make spotting criminals easier to spot because of the recession.
The “Too much bling? Give us a ring!” campaign targets those who live far in excess of their income through the proceeds of crime. These individuals are responsible for undermining communities and destroying lives.

There does seem to be a voice of sanity though.Ann Widdecombe, Tory MP and former Home Secretary said:
‘Is this a joke? If the police spent half as much time tackling crime and getting out on the beat as they do coming out with this ridiculous stuff, we’d all be better off.
Under The Explorers Program,an affiliate of the Boy Scouts. The Department of Homeland Security is Training young boys between the age of 14 – 21 on how to fight terrorism.
“Our end goal is to create more agents,” said April McKee, a senior Border Patrol agent and mentor at the session here.
Cathy Noriego, also 16, said she was attracted by the guns. The group uses compressed-air guns — known as airsoft guns, which fire tiny plastic pellets — in the training exercises, and sometimes they shoot real guns on a closed range.
“I like shooting them,” Cathy said. “I like the sound they make. It gets me excited.”
Dressed in combat fatigues and armed with air guns firing tiny plastic pellets, they are taught how to assault buses, raid marijuana fields and rescue terrorist hostages from buildings.

A interesting article on CNBC this morning.
The US government for sure will go bust. That I guarantee you. Not tomorrow, but it will go bust,
Capitalism is dead, But I think it died a decade ago when the glass steagall act was repealed. We are just now reaping the consequences for that.
But the same way that communism over reached and spread it’s self to thin until it finally collapsed under it’s own pressure. Capitalism is going the same route. Our government is self imploding on it’s self, without any bullets fired.
Adrian Gibbs has studied germ evolution for four decades, he is one of the first scientists to analyze the genetic makeup of the virus that was identified three weeks ago in Mexico. Gibbs, a scientist on the team that was behind the development of Tamiflu, says in a report he is submitting that swine flu might have been created using eggs to grow viruses and make new vaccines, and could have been accidentally leaked to the general public.
This strain of swine influenza that’s been cultured in a laboratory is something that’s not been seen anywhere actually in the United States and the world, so this is actually a new strain of influenza that’s been identified,” said Dr. John Carlo, Dallas Co. Medical Director
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta has received the report from Gibbs and has decided there is no evidence to support Gibbs’s conclusion.
It has been announced that Baxter is seeking a sample of the potentially lethal never before seen form of swine/avian/human flu virus in order to assist the World Health Organization in developing a new vaccine, reaping billions in the process.
The Same Baxter that made international headlines earlier this year for there tragic mixup of putting live birdflu in seasonal flu vaccines. the Times of India said the “Virus mix-up by lab could have resulted in pandemic”
It was a confusion of test material,” says a representative of the Austrian branch of Baxter, Richard Tischler.
Baxter’s director of global bioscience communications, Christopher Bona confirmed what scientists suspected.
“It was live”
Bona went on to say that the mix up happened because of:
“technical and human error in this procedure.”
Yet the CDC doesn’t see any evidence to support Gibbs Claims?
This article is a must read about the economic collapse we are in.
The gist of the article is that Wall Street has intentionally created the economic mess, knowing full well that they would reap trillions in profits for their shady behavior. But in the end it would be the tax payers who would carry the burden of paying off their mistakes, while they remain in business.
The media is so bought and paid for, that instead of dismantling Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, and Bank of America and regulating the financial industry. We are giving them trillions of our money to do nothing more then sweep the mess under the bed.
…”if America is to recover from this economic debacle that we find ourselves in, its people must return to the principles that made it great – hard work, creativity, and innovation – and both government and business must serve that end. Washington must serve America, not Wall Street. Things will not change so long as Americans acquiesce to business as usual in Washington. It’s time for Americans to make their voices heard.”
