The Dutch know how to do it.

Dutch DSB bank bankrupt, two rescue bids fail

I know this may seem off topic, but it is important to see how our European cousins actually stand up to the banksters, responsible for the current mess - "The bank got into financial difficulties after a run on savings prompted by a campaign by angry customers who say they were oversold mortgages and charged too-high fees on insurance policies.".................where is the British fire. I will not believe it has been destroyed totally, by the nanny state of Crash and Bleuuuuuur!!!!!!!!!!!!

Except that this has nothing to do with the Dutch authorities and everything to do with EU rules.

True, but we now have a new internet generation. Let's see what "Tower Power" can do when the time is upon us!

"Tower Power" will have no one leader.

It will be lead by a reactionary international force that will grow exponentially, but I will be there at the time of reckoning even if it is just to

prove that I am still alive.

cat and canary,

The protesters are busy complaining about coal-fired power plants and green issues. Maybe someone could make a link between big evil banks and CO2 - that would get them on our side!

i´m not an environmental scientist/climatologist. I´ve heard the theories before that green issues are a smokescreen for global taxation/control. And ive read evidence both for and against the argument that its cycles of the sun thats apparently warming our planet.

I understand that unrefutable proof for global warming isn´t easy to obtain. Problem is, by the time we had any proof (if it was true), it would be too late....but not too late for the planet, ...but too late for large parts of the human race.. the Earth will recover, even if humans don´t.

But im not a doommonger, I think that humans will solve the current environmental problems (if they are true). And if it makes the west less dependent on oil (and all the politics associated with oil) then im all for green tech and investment. The US spent 100´s billions in Iraq, saving a bit of oil. Complete waste of money, that should have been invested in R&D.

Whether we like it or not, a lot of money is going to be spent on green tech in the coming years, so no doubt the bankers are already planning how to get a slice of that pie also! Doesn´t prove global warming is a just proves bankers are greedy!

No financial reward incentives just taxes and more taxes!

Same old bull. Judge a tree by the fruit it bears.
