Debt Ceiling Update: The President’s Statement “another Washington Inflicted Wound On America”

In his statement today President Obama was stated as saying “We can’t balance the budget on the backs of the very people who have born the biggest brunt of this recession, we can’t make it tougher for young people to go to college or ask seniors to pay more for healthcare or ask scientists to give up on promising medical research because we couldn’t close the tax shelter for the most fortunate amoung us. Everyones going to have to chip in.” He claims that “deficit reduction is part of that agenda.” The aforementioned quote clearly shows a statement anti-debt reduction. Major cuts must be made to the balance sheet and the income statement of the United States to avoid economic catastrophe. The necessary cuts can be seen in this article (web-basedfinancialadvisor . com / economy)

In viewing this video, Obama is clearly blaming congress for this issue, when it was clearly his own actions which caused this catastrophe. He claims “The economy’s already had to absorb an earthquake in Japan, the economic headwinds coming from Europe, the Arab spring and the rise in oil prices,” when as these events were happening U.S. indexes were up to their highest levels since 2007. Clearly this double dip recession which is looming is due to the actions of the President, although it is unfair to blame the president, it would have been as easy as signing the house and Boehners bill into law. The market was absolutely fine, I personally was up over 10% from Wednesday the 20th to Wednesday the 27th, when said bill was about to be passed.

Essentially, Obama is asking for a congressional bill which meets his ideals, this is not going to happen. He says he wants to make a climate for jobs by sending tax cuts to the middle class. This is a play on words, there is no such thing as a climate for jobs by sending tax cuts to the middle class because the middle class, for the most part, does not create jobs. It is corporations and the upper class which have the revenue to build the United States economy, and he is raising taxes for millionaires, a number which shows idiocy due to the fact that if you taxed all millionaires 100% of their income it still would only equate into just over a trillion dollars, and under Obamas presidency he has seen a national debt of one and a half trillion dollars. That being said, have he give tax breaks to those same Americans, the intellect which brought them their fiscal gains could create GDP gains and cut the deficit.

If you were to review the article under our news section called Past vs. Present you will see that there is a parallel in congress. Obama wants a democratically ideological bill which is sent from the house majority republicans. This is something which will not happen. At this point, the President needs to again, as said, cut his losses and take the original democratically proposed plan, or simply go back to Clinton era fiscal policy, a time in which there was a surplus in the American economy. If Mr. President wants to keep his job, furthermore, keep his country, the most logical decision would be to appease the republicans who are the majority to which the components of the bill will be passed. His opinions are irrelevant, all Obama has been doing over the past month is vetoing bills, you cannot ask the republicans to write 30 bills through majority vote and veto each one, or take a position with Beohner and reneg and call for tax increases.

Clearly Mr. Obama is not the right man for the job. He is blaming congress because they have yet to send him a bill which he will pass, yet congress itself agreed on these bills, congress, as in the voted in parliament for this country. The debt ceiling crisis is Mr. Obamas fault.

At this point this needs to be taken to the supreme court where Obama agrees that congress will write three completely different bills to which he is obliged to sign one of them, and in doing so, he will solute the debt ceiling crisis. That or he needs to pull up his pants and secede to the majority. We must remember that this house majority represents a U.S. populous majority. If the country is not happy with its president, they are granted by the constitution to have the power to overthrow him. Under stressful fiscal times the United States independents sway towards Republicanism and at this point, even Massachusetts has a republican majority. It is time for Mr. Obama to sign a bill into law, or simply have himself and Joe Biden resign, leaving the absolute power as president to Mrs. Clinton, an administration to which we saw hundreds of billions of dollars of surplus’s. At this point, it is almost inevitable that Mr. Obama does not get re-elected, and rightly so. The writer of this article actually voted for him but he kept not one of his promises from his campaign. Clearly his outwrit power needs to be either brought to court under the supreme court or he needs to hand his power over to Mrs. Hilary Clinton, which although myself being a conservative, Mr. & Mrs. Clinton put us through an administration to which we saw the best Balance Sheet and Income Statement outlook since the mid 20th century.

Financial Lead Generation

Lead generation, as well as lead qualification, requires unique skills. Lead Generation is often seen as hard work or the result of an expensive marketing campaign. Lead Generation does not automatically result from attendance at a business networking event. Lead Generation for your Business Lead generation is a marketing term that refers to the manufacture of connections between well-matched consumers and target corporate vendors. Lead Generation is frequently seen in the financial world.

Lead Generation has been particularly effective in the automotive industry. Lead generation includes anything that a business does to gather a list of new or potential clients and involves a number of techniques used to create interest in potential customers. Lead generation products track the activities of potential customers on a company’s Web site and use factors like their job titles and activities on the site to assign “lead scores,” which help salespeople to target their efforts.

Sales people often lack the support of a dedicated marketing team that is able to execute lead generation programs on their behalf. In fact, they may be obligated as a part of their role to develop and execute localized lead generation programs. And instead of calling it lead generation, sales people will probably call it prospecting. Even the very best lead generation program cannot compensate for poor teamwork and collaboration, but unfortunately we continue hear about it time and again.

Simon Dixon Addresses The Next Generation Of Banking Leaders

Many of you have been asking questions of my mission to reform banking…

…So I thought I would address the main ones here…

After reading between the lines of your questions and trying to get to what you are really asking, here is my summary…

“In plain English Simon Dixon, what banking reforms do you stand for and what exactly are you up to?”

“Are you an evil banker or are you one of us?”

“Are you a greedy capitalist trying to squeeze some money out of banking reform or are you really trying to make a difference?”

So here it is, in plain English…

…What I stand for and what I am doing, so that any time somebody asks me this question, I can simply send them here.

Here Is What I Stand For…

A banking system that does not give banks any responsibility for creating our nations money supply, so that bankers can be bankers and lend real money to people who want to borrow it.

(And pay themselves whatever bonus they want and only piss of shareholders, not the world).

Implementing a system to create money debt free.

(I am not against debt, just money created as debt)

I feel the best way of doing this is to have an independent monitory policy committee who are in charge of supplying our nations money and gifting it to the treasury or taxing it out of existence.

They no longer try to manipulate debt indirectly by controlling interest rates, they simply create or collect debt free money to and from the treasury.

There goal is to eliminate inflation and deflation independent of politics with open and transparent goals.

If they fail they are sacked.

This will be a lot easier than the complexities of manipulating interest rates and employing econometricians to create mathematical formulas that never work anyway.

Here is why you should want this too:

It prevents the perpetual recycling of debt forever to pay of interest on money that does not exist.

It means that companies, individuals and governments do not have to increase their level of debt forever, they simply take on debt as a choice.

It means that countries will stop raping each other for debt free money and leaving the other country in deeper debt forever. (Normally the third world)

It means that banks can get on with banking and not be involved in politics and creating our nations money supply.

It means that we can create a much more fair and stable banking system that is not prone to bank failures and bank bailouts.

Big Claims…?

I believe our current banking system…

(through no conspiracy theory)

…is directly and indirectly responsible for war, poverty and scarcity through debt slavery.

I DO NOT hate banks or bankers…

…I am not a conspiracy theorist…

…I simply believe in making the world better by creating a banking system that works.

What Is Wrong With Banking, I thought it just meant fat cats get paid large bonuses?

Our current banking system means that all countries are continually searching for money that does not exist within their own country, to pay off debt. Consequently countries are competing with each other for debt free money, increasing the likelihood of international dispute and war.

Our current banking system means that countries trade with each other not to add value to each other, but to obtain some debt free money and leave the losing country deeply in debt leading to poverty in third world countries that otherwise would have been resource rich.

Our current banking system creates a nation of people who believe in scarcity of money that brings out the worst in people, causes depression and has a negative effect on how we treat each other.

Our current banking system makes people think that money and business are evil when they both have the potential to deliver so much good and value in the world.

Our current banking system does not allow the great social enterprises like MicroFinance and Social Banking to reach their full potential to serve the world as we rely on banks for the creation of money.

I do not imply that after reform there will be no more war and poverty.

I imply that banking reform gives humans all the tools they need to eliminate war and poverty as a consequence of sacristy of money.

Rather than being guaranteed by sacristy of money, as it is with the current system, it will be a choice.

Here is what I am doing to make it happen:

I have a three-tier strategy.

There are three ways I am making a difference and I dedicate the rest of my life to – Education, Politics & Business.

Here are some details on my three tier action plan:

Firstly Education -

I educate the next generation of banking leaders and finance students as to the problems with our current system (I own the worlds largest training and consultancy company for students and graduates seeking careers in banking and finance – Benedix)

Secondly Politics -

I campaign politicians and government to reform the way money is created (Make the practice of fractional reserve banking illegal, replace debt created money with debt free money in a transition period and implement systems to provide our nation with debt free money). This does not mean ‘no debt’, it means money will not be created as debt.

Thirdly Business -

Create banking systems that are in line with new technological change (My company Metal Monkey Enterprise has a mission to create the worlds largest social banking network, kind of like the ebay for banking where people and businesses lend to each other without a bank as well as helping existing banks transition to banking reform)

So there it is.

That is who I am.

I have a lot of energy…

…I am young (I consider this a strength)

…I have a lot of experience at making seemingly impossible ideas happen…

…If I don’t know something, I have a large network of influential people who have achieved remarkable things and built breakthrough businesses…

…and most importantly, I have an obsessive compulsive disorder that gets me up at 7am in the morning and keeps me going to 2am with a very supportive wife who lets me be so obsessive.

Give Scots The Financial Freedom They Are Demanding

For one month the people of Edinburgh have heard their city speak with an accent not their own. In pubs and cabs, on street corners and at all the smartest restaurants, the inflection has been southern England rather than eastern Scotland. It’s been festival time, when England’s arts-hungry classes repair to Edinburgh as if it were a summer residence. Thousands of real foreigners fill the city of course, but it’s the Sassenachs who dominate. By the end of August, even the cash machines are spitting out English banknotes.

Now that the post-festival clear-up is under way, Edinburgh is getting its city back to itself. Rather than fretting over whether a Yorkshireman or Londoner is going to win the Perrier prize for stand-up comedy, the Scottish capital can return to its regular, 11-months-a-year worries.

And they are pressing. The political season about to resume will climax next May with elections for the Scottish parliament. As the old saw has it, it’s not the first election which truly tests a new political institution – it’s the second. Next year we will learn how well this body has secured its place in the Scottish landscape; what Scots think of it and who they want to run it.

A hot issue for the coming campaign has already materialised, with argument raging across the Scottish press. But it’s hardly a question for Scots alone. On the contrary, and not for the first time, the country is debating a question with resonance far beyond the border. Indeed, the current row could take its place alongside the poll tax and devolution as an example of a Scottish debate which blazed a trail for the rest of the UK.

The phrase of the hour is financial independence or, for those keen to strangle the idea at birth by wrapping it up in voter-unfriendly jargon, fiscal autonomy. Proposed by the Scottish National party, it has gained favour with some Tories and Lib Dems. Where it has yet to score is with Labour. And yet the left should be this idea’s natural champions, seeking to apply its logic not only to Scotland but across the UK.

Put simply, financial independence would put Scotland in charge of its own money. Now, Edinburgh gets a handout of cash from London which it can spend as it sees fit. It has the power to add or subtract a little, by raising or lowering the rate of income tax by up to 3p in the pound. But essentially Westminster and Holyrood have the same financial relationship as a millionaire and his pre-feminist wife: he raises it and she spends it.

A financially independent Scotland would take all that responsibility on to its own shoulders. It would have to raise the money it wants to spend, design its own tax regime (not just tweak it at the edges) and collect the cash itself. If it wanted to spend more, it would have to ask the voters to give more – rather than just petitioning Gordon Brown for a larger handout – and pay the electoral price. Once the money was in, Holyrood would send a cheque to London to pay its share of the cost of the British army or embassies abroad – those things the UK provides. All the rest, Scotland would do itself.

Labour has wasted no time trashing everything about the scheme. It says Tories only like it because they see it as a way to curb the state and wind down public expenditure. The imagined argument is that low-income Scots currently vote for a large public sector because they don’t pick up the tab – the well-off taxpayers of Middle England do that for them. If they had to pay the bills themselves, Scots would soon balk and Scotland’s enlarged public sphere would shrink.

As for the nationalists, say Labour, this is a mark of their desperation. “It’s a recognition by the SNP that they have lost the argument for full independence,” says Paisley MP and Westminster minister Douglas Alexander. Now they are retreating even further, he says, reduced to arguing for the pale slogan of “fiscal freedom”. They can no longer fault Labour for the amount of money London gives – up to 20bn thanks to Brown’s latest spending spree – so they have to concentrate on abstract, structural arrangements. “They can’t complain about revenue, they can’t complain about [public service] reform, so they talk about the relationship” between Scotland and England instead, says Alexander.

Still, despite the Labour bombardment, this issue won’t flatten easily. It has too much logic and appeal. To the right, it rings with the prudence and self-reliance that appeal to Scottish Conservative instincts. No wonder Andrew Neil’s Scotsman titles are giving it a good run: it fits with their common-sense notion that no one should have the right to take coins out of the piggy bank unless they are also responsible for putting them in. It would also allow Edinburgh to construct a business-friendly tax regime, luring investment currently drawn to London.

But it is the left that should be financial independence’s loudest advocates – not because it will allow the Tories to slash spending, as Labour alleges, but because it will allow Labour and others to do the opposite. For nearly three decades it has been an uphill struggle for progressives to make the case for active government, still less for the dirty words of tax and spend. The response, both from the right and from sceptical voters, has been that any new cash will disappear into the vast black hole that is the UK budget. Admittedly, Labour is currently engaged in an ambitious attempt to turn that around, with Brown’s effective increase on income tax and his grand programme of extra spending on schools and hospitals. But even the chancellor would admit his task is made much harder by Britain’s deep-rooted prejudice against taxation and spending.

Surely the swiftest way to overturn that bias is by bringing the public sphere closer to home, asking people to throw their coins not into a UK-wide black hole but a local treasure chest. In the words of Andrew Wilson, the SNP finance spokesman who is financial independence’s chief booster: “The only way to win once more the argument for active government is to localise spending and revenue raising.”

There are countries across the world that have already shown the way, asking citizens to stump up, say, 30% on national income tax, another 5% for their region and a couple more for their city or home town. Polls show voters resenting money handed over to the remote capital city, but happy to pay for a new neighbourhood school or improvements to the local park.

In other words, Scotland should have its financial independence – and the rest of the UK should be allowed to follow. Brown’s grand plan, if it works, is only one way to rehabilitate tax and spend. Another, equally legitimate way would be to give Scotland its freedom, freeze or cut income tax for England and Wales, but raise extra funds locally.
