Max Keiser: "See Whitey Run"

In 2005 Max Keiser predicted exactly what is happening now:

"See Whitey Run"

By the Max Keiser Chiefs

Mixed by The Herb Whisperer (listen here)

Whitey is doing a runner
Whitey is doing a runner
Whitey racked up 250 trillion dollars worth of debts
and now is trying to run away

JP Morgan
Bank of America
Credit Suisse First Boston
Goldman Sachs

There are 250 trillion dollars worth of derivative contracts
250 trillion dollars worth of IOUs
Now, planet earth itself
has a global GDP or output of just under 40 trillion
40 trillion goes into 250 trillion how many times?
This is a financial wave of bad IOU paper suddenly getting ready
to crash on to everyone's bank account

Refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot

We've been saying these banks are in the business
of tearing down society and the ecology
by issuing these highly toxic derivative products
because when it's revealed that the value is zero
and the markets seize up and are illiquid
you have to declare bankruptcy
and they're coming after you
because they sold off your mortgage
to some Chinese creditor
who thinks nothing of stringing you up
and beating you
You're going to ask me, 'Max why didn't you warn me about this?'
And I'll say

Refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco
Refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco
Refco, refco, refco
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
And if there's anybody left in here
Who doesn't want to be out there

It's obvious to see that this was coming
because you already had indications in the environment
If the collateral that is the basis for this 250 trillion dollar derivative market
is burning up in real time
you can't expect that piece of paper to have any collateral value
It's got to be marked down to zero

Refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco
Refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco, refco
Refco, refco, refco
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
And if there's anybody left in here
Who doesn't want to be out there
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot

Whitey racked up 250 trillion dollars worth of debt
and now is trying to run away

My Rockin' Wheatgrass Garden: Progress Photos #2

Then I saw this, sitting right in front of the gallery.

My Pergola Challenge: Progress Photos #1

My pergola:
My friend Chris Monroe's pergola:
The top photo is what my pergola looks like right now.

The bottom photo is what my friend Chris Monroe's pergola looks like in the summer.

Isn't it gorgeous??

I am so inspired by Chris' photograph, that I went to the local garden shop yesterday and bought seed starter and seeds : tomato (which I have to start soon), cucumber, cilantro, parsley, and lavender, dug out all of my terra cotta pots out of the basement, purchased a bunch of those upside down veggie planters, and am going to challenge myself to make my pergola look as magical as Chris' does in the summertime!

Tips are appreciated.

Wish me luck!

And stay tuned for updates . . . .

Village Interviews: Abou Chiabi

7:30 PM EST
MNN (Channel 67)

Dear Friends :

This Wednesday, March 11th at 7:30 PM, I am re-airing a half-hour program of a father-son team of musicians I recorded in Paris in 2002 on my little cable show Famousx2. Both of them are named Abou Chiabi; the father is from the Comorro Islands, and the son is from Paris. These guys are exceptionally good musicians and one day may hit in NYC; one never knows. And there is something for almost everyone here: in half an hour, you will hear French, English, Spanish and Comorro langauges , and you will hear political songs, jazz, African songs, fusion and avant garde. It is definitely worth setting your VCR or any recording devices you may have on your computer. I promise you will be humming these songs for a long time. And the sound quality is very good.

If you are in Manhattan and have access to Time Warner, you can see it this Wednesday March 11th, at 7:30 pm (DST-that's NYC Daylight Savings Time) on channel 67.On the RCN system, that should be channel 85.

If you are outside of Manhattan, anywhere in the world, and you have a good high-speed connection on your computer, you can go to MNN Whatsonnow (or MNN) and click on channel 67 to see it at the same time. Sometimes MNN does screw up broadcasts, but usually they air things without too many be patient.

Green Shopping: Upside Down Veggie Planters

I am starting a new category called Green Shopping now, specifically for those moments when I discover something like these crazy cool upside down vegetable planters:

Vertical Grow Bag Planter:

Gardener's Revolution Planter:

So . . . . anyone can grow their own veggie garden at home and you don't need a yard to do it . . . . I love it.

I am wondering if you can bring these guys indoors in the winter, hang them in front of kitchen/dinette area windows, use a plant light for back-up, and grow your own garden veggies all year long?

UPDATE: The Vertical Grow Bag Planters shown above are now on back-order, so here is another link to a similar product.

My Anti-Cancer Treatments: Raw Foods That Are Contraindicated in Hypothyroid Conditions

Broccoli, brussell sprouts, cabbage, collards, kale, turnip greens, and spinach should be eaten or juiced with caution if you are hypothyroid.

According to - Thyroid Disease
* These high-fiber vegetables are also goitrogenic, meaning that they promote thyroid enlargement and can potentially cause or aggravate hypothyroidism. Typically, the risk is highest when these foods are consumed raw, regularly, and in substantial quantity. Cooking eliminates most goitrogenic properties.
I am hypothyroid due to Hashimoto's thyroiditis and I would get very sleepy soon after drinking a pint of raw green juice that was loaded with the aforementioned veggies.

Hashimoto's thyroiditis is very common in mercury toxic and/or selenium deficient individuals.

Because these vegetables are such powerful anti-cancer foods, and because I am 100% raw right now, I am taking a supplement called BroccoMax, but I will most likely start steaming these veggies instead soon and give up on being 100% raw, as I really don't like taking supplements.

I will continue to juice raw organic celery, asparagus, carrot, beet (up to four times per week), ginger and lemon.

Thyroid Toxins: The Double-Edged Swords of The Kingdom Plantae, by Chris Masterjohn:
Goitrogenic foods include soy, millet, cruciferous vegetables, cassava, lima beans, flax seeds, almonds, and fruits and fruit seeds of the Rosacea family.
Rosacea family fruits are mainly apricot, cherry, nectarine, peach and plum. Interestingly, their seeds contain vitamin B17, also known as laetrile or amygdalin, which is also used as an anti-cancer treatment in alternative medicine.

Even with a raw foods diet, every body is different and there is no "one size fits all" raw foods anti-cancer treatment menu.

What are goitrogens and in which foods are they found?

Good news: Avocado and coconut stimulate thyroid function.
These are two of my favorite foods!
