Going to Britain to visit the Queen
Putting a Pauper under the Royalty and Government section of the Guinness book of records has much unique potential. Having a Pauper on the same page as Emperor Bokassa with his most expensive coronation in history is a good example. You can imagine him riding into town on his Eagle jet. You can imagine me riding into town on my Greyhound bus. You can imagine him in his limousine off to his palace. You can imagine me hoofing it off to the YMCA. There's a picture of him on his throne of gold while I have to share my throne with everyone on my floor and and the only gold I might get to see is down in the bowl. Talk about the Joker in the Deck. Putting the Pauper King of the Fringers on the same page as the Rich Kings is the grist for a thousand punch lines. And there are other sensational angles for bringing global attention to LETS to come.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is also on the same page with me as the longest serving Queen. So I've posted a Petition of Right urging Her Majesty open a Greentally account and join her other tens of thousands of subjects across Her Commonwealth in one big LETSystem. I've always argued that direct connection to the Crown was financial salvation and now I'm going to attempt to get me one. And get you all one with me.
I'm coming to Great Britain for two reasons. I am coming to get in and see the Queen or picket Buckingham Palace with a "We want a Royal LETS" sign. And I am coming to place a bet. Hopefully, Bookmakers William Hill will be willing to book The Gambler's World's Biggest Bet. But that's a whole other story. I'll also try out the Poker casinos in London for a report to the rec.gambling.poker newsgroup.But back to winning the biggest public boon rather than winning the biggest private bet.
I have been picketing for years and one cannot imagine just how effective it really is given the dismal results of major protests around the world. Of course, a large crowd of people chanting "Do something" never gets anywhere because they don't really know where they really want to go.
Yet, one or two chanting "Do this" can do more than the millions amongst whom they've sown ignorance and discord. They should know what they want before they start screaming for change or the change they get is always the change that makes it worse.
I can't imagine what kind of an impact it might have to have all 50,000 UK LETS members in front of Buckingham Palace with their families and friends chanting "Your Majesty's Green credit is good with us if you join our Green credit system" and "We want Royal LETS now." Fifty thousand LETS account inviting the regent to join them in their lifeboat while she happens to be drowning in debt would be much harder to ignore than millions with no life-boat blueprints in and telling the regent to "do something."
Of course, people laugh that it's impossible to rouse a large demonstration on short notice and they're probably right as only a small percentage of today's LETSers have yet seen the national and international visions.
But one wonders at what point the number of demonstrators gets the Queen's attention? Would it take 10,000 LETSers in public support of Her Majesty's national Tally system, or even 100 with the media covering us because we're the only Christmas demonstration going on, what's the cut point?
I think we're all agreed that things could move fast if all Commonwealth LETSers brought all their families and friends to demonstrate to Her Majesty that they will save her resorting to loansharks to finance the upkeep of Her Realm by accepting the Royal Tallies she creates interest-free. Yes, I think couple of hundred thousand subjects demanding the Queen open a LETS account as her gift to her subjects and their gift of credit to her, would be an irresistible pressure.
Then again, LETSers could simply open an account in her name anyway, levy an agreed upon tax, and if she doesn't want to come to the community to put those funds to work for a communal purpose, you can always elect someone else to do her job for her. You've been calling the pooling of funds for common good "Capital LETS" so there's no reason anyone should have any trouble with the idea of Royal LETS.
Anyway, I'm going to Britain to see what one man shouting "Use LETS" can do. I was first to put the words "Abolish Interest" on Her Majesty's lips and I'd love to be first to put "Use LETS Green Tallies" on her lips as well.
If any UK LETSers who dream big want to join me in urging Her Majesty to consider joining us in our LETS life-boats and fusing them into one big Royal Battleship, get a computer diskette, add a label which says LET$ and wear it proudly on your lapel wherever you go.
I can use my Guinness record to throw the Public Relations spotlight on LETS when I visit before Christmas but I need those of you who share the vision of the biggest possible LETS to provide the grass-roots pressure. Otherwise, I and my mate might find ourselves picketing Buckingham Palace alone on Christmas day as the Queen delivers her speech and we see this year's best opportunity for a Commonwealth-wide LETS settle on a back-burner.
I'd also like to invite any LETSers to ready a presentation for the Queen. The story will be the readiness of the presentation, not whether it gets made or not.
So join The Pauper Engineer on the job picketing outside, if not inside, Buckingham Palace during the Queen's Christmas speech where we will relay a united prayer that she grant her subjects' wish for one big Commonwealth-wide LETS by Christmas morning.
If you do come to our peaceful party in front of Buckingham Palace, I won't consider you'll have earned the honor to be on that front line if you have not added to the pressure on Her Majesty and Her Government with letters, calls, anything you can do to raise the awareness that a national Local Employment Trading System could be set up by Christmas day.
It's time to do more than preach. You've all seen LETS work on small databases. There is no logical reason it won't fly on one large one. Only the clamor of all the paupers among us can guarantee Her Majesty's attention. I won't consider myself truly liberated from the financial middlemen until I have direct access to the Queen's account and I will settle for nothing less.
To finance my European adventure, I just published a 1000 limited 8.5"x11" edition of "The Adventures of John "The Engineer" Turmel," which includes my copyrighted "Poker Power Tools" one of which I sent to the Queen and five of which were filed in the Supreme Court of Canada. I'm certifying each one personally. This is the index to topics and adventures.

I know that it sounds like a pot-pourri of oddities and extras, and it is. Maybe that's why, in the US edition of Guinness Record Book, I was not listed with the Royalty page but shared the "Extra Extra" section on the back pages with the Biggest Bagel in the world. Could they also apply for the Biggest Bagel Hole? Like me, they also hold a second unheralded but related record. As they mention I ran the most races but not that I lost the most races, they mentioned their Largest Bagel but not their Largest Bagel Hole.
I'll also soon be applying for several more Guinness World Records. The obvious one is for the most elections lost as well as most elections run. I'm also thinking of most appearances in a nation's highest court a) by a non-lawyer, 5 so far, soon maybe 6 if my latest case is accepted for hearing; b) by a pauper, 2 so far, soon maybe 3; c) for the first use of a videotaped memorandum in Supreme Court, 1984, d) for the first indictment of usury as genocide, 1981, e) most bank pickets, f) biggest gaming house raid, (27 tables 122 employees), etc. After an initial listing, I'm up to submitting for 34 odd firsts, lasts, mosts, or leasts in the world. Working on the Global Abolish Interest Rates Project for 18 years has given me the opportunity to do many very unusual things.
Considering I might hold a record for most electoral debates as well as most debates excluded from in a supposedly "democratic" nation, I'd be interested in any putting the speeches I've learned to use in any speaking engagements which would include accommodations for two. Remember, the Pauper's coming to visit on a shoe-string but I'll get there if the deal includes helping paddle the canoe.
Hey, Maureen Mallinson, when your New Zealand Greendollar National Meeting invited the Pauper Engineer to speak to you, didn't I manage to get there on my own? Sure, you may have met my flight from Honolulu at Auckland Airport but nobody saw me and Pauline in Honolulu parking our canoe from Vancouver.
Remember, I've been an officially broke pauper owing Revenue Canada $300,000 since the big Topaz gaming house raid 1993. If I had kept any money, I'd be sitting in jail for up to 10 years. Becoming a pauper again saved me from that threat. Yet, it's funny how God always seems to provide as long as you're faithfully on His Job.
Who knows, maybe Pauline's little book company will thrive and my trips talking LETS become a "business expense."
So, the dice are cast. My next week is spent at the Poker tables raising the funds for our airline tickets. Though Pauline was born near Manchester, she stays home if I don't have a really good week at the game. So watch out if you're sitting down in a Poker game with me this week because I really bet God wants me working on Christmas day this year. And it isn't the usual playing accordion in hospitals. Or maybe it will be? Who knows what adventures I'll have with accordion and my picket sign in Great Britain, especially if bartering my book gets me some Green to spend while I'm there.

So the picket line is starting to form. And I'm sure it will grow larger. Last week, I read that the Queen's auto had been pelted with eggs by students recently pauperized by funding cuts to their life support. If they're ready to pelt Her Majesty with eggs, maybe they'll be ready to petition Her Majesty for LETS funding.

This is not one of the many demonstrations against the "problem." It's a first demonstration for the "solution." On the day I mailed my Petition to the Queen, I watched on the news as she inspected the paupers' quarters at the New Salvation Army Hostel near her palace. Maybe after LETS is explained to a few of those "now-high-profile" paupers at the Sally who she couldn't help, they would like the chance to petition Her Majesty for Greentally jobs with us. If I can get an accordion, I'll give the paupers at the Sally Ann a night of entertainment they'll never forget. Adding in an explanation of what a Royal LETS could do for their lives should produce the necessary support from the Sally Ann. We could set up a LETSystem for them so they can offer, like Capital LETS, their credits to Her Majesty which they will redeem with work in their neighborhoods.
*We in KENT have suggested that maybe John would like to make a *50 mile detour & come to Canterbury, & use his skills to persuade *the Archbishop of Canterbury what LETsystems could do for his *'flock'not to mention his crumbling 'infrastructure.'
As my trip to New Zealand last year turned into one long string of pickets and media and personal appearances to talk LETS all around the country, I'd expect my trip to your islands might end up the same with visits to perhaps France (I am half French- Canadian). Since the Royal Family will be away from Buckingham Palace, I'm thinking of having a small motorcade from the Palace up to Sandringham. So, something in Canterbury before Christmas would surely bring extra attention to the two demos the next day at Buckingham Palace and Sandringham, wouldn't it? And I've invited the Islamic Party to find an imam to go see the Archbishop with us. And with two-and-a-half weeks left in my stay, who knows if I won't manage to picket Her Majesty a total of 9 times like I did when she visited Ottawa. I have been called a "political gadfly" which I had taken as an insult until the dictionary indicated a "large fly that bites cattle." And yes, I have managed to get their attention. . Though I now owe $300,000 to Her Majesty's Revenue Canada which condemns me to be one of Her Majesty's paupers for the rest of my life, I don't intend to let Her Majesty allow them do keep me a pauper quietly. Soon to celebrate my 30th anniversary of being a Cameron Highlander in Her Parliament Hill Honour Guard at Canada's 1967 Centennial celebrations and now a pauper on a picket line. What irony for out times. I'm coming to see if the biggest gadfly of them all can Her Majesty's attention for LETS. I wouldn't mind being being Her Majesty's Royal Gadfly with my "Abolish Interest with LETS" sign for a few weeks. Are there any bets against Her Majesty seeing my LETS Petition whether in public, in the papers on the radio or television? If she has enough public appearances, we might two- step it right across the country. I am willing to do anything "quixotic" to accomplish my objectives. The strategy is to leave a smile on Her Lips if not a LETS imprint on her brain and somehow, Her Majesty is going to join me in any spotlight I generate. It's time be a LETSystem gadfly trying to get attention of the head. You've all been killing the Beast whenever you help someone avoid interest by using your Green tokens. But you've been killing the Beast like 2,500 gadflies, a little at a time. It's time to go for the head. And don't think The City won't get my attention. I didn't picket every Bank of Canada across most of Canada to miss the chance to stretch my record with a few big ones overseas. I've got nothing better to do than picket loanshark establishments and their Regal victims. These kinds of three-week PR picket projects are always a lot of fun but they can also turn into bonanzas, even if accomplished by paupers. It doesn't take much work. It just takes pressing the right buttons at the right times. Even 100 Sally Ann paupers with LETS diskette badges on their lapels can have a staggering media impact, especially when they were just on the telly last week with their impotent Queen. I don't need 50,000 LETSers on the picket line with me. I need those 100 Sally Ann paupers coming back at Her Majesty with the solution they found to the problem she couldn't solve. And I'll entertain the troops on the front lines at Buck House. It would be sad if I whipped up more Sally Ann paupers demonstrating for LETS than LETSers demonstrating for LETS.
*John suggested that accounts be opened for him in systems in the *UK & around the world. His account number in the Canterbury *Letsystem is 275. Anyone else wanting to give a very useful Xmas *present to John could do likewise.
That pretty well guarantees Pauline and I will be spending some time and Green in Kent. I have a $3,000 Green credit in the Toronto LETS worth 300 hours labor for the cash I put in when they needed a laser printer for their newsletter in 1993 and Pauline has earned over $300 Greendollars in the Ottawa LETS. Is there anyone who will take a promissory check on my Canadian Green cashable the day our LETSystems connect? Don't forget, when the Global Abolish Interest Rates Project is complete, I, as I'm sure Michael Linton, will be submitting a statement of account to the Global LETS bank for our professional engineering efforts and doubt the Global members would decide our expenses on the job of "banking systems engineer" should not be honored. So I won't mind spending Green even if I go negative. Though I'm happy to say I have plenty of positive. It seems to be the one asset the police were never intent on seizing. I always knew this was a project with a lot of thank-yous at the end of the rainbow and it's been my privilege to have been given the opportunity to lead the attack in so many unheard of ways on the Beast of Exponential Debt. I will be free of my debt slavery even if I have to free everyone else to do it. I do hope to join as many LETS as I can. I have a reason for wanting an account in every LETS. If the Global LETS can't organize a time-based clearinghouse to allow trading between branches, it can be done through me if I have an account in all branches. It shouldn't have to come to that when it really should be done by the Crown. If I can manage to get an account in every LETS in her realm, I can prove to her that what economic activity I can engender with that credit power, she could engender with that same credit power. But if she won't do the only job worthy of the Crown, then maybe it's a job worthy of a Pauper.
PRESSURE BY FAIT ACCOMPLIT But don't forget Her Majesty's account. Richard Kay, as one of Britain's foremost LETSers, could you join me in honestly assuring Her Majesty that British LETSers could unite to operate a national LETS Greentally system with one tally worth one hour's work for eventual compatibility with Timedollar systems? It's crucial that tallies be linked to manpower over time and not to pounds of anything. We know how quickly the banking system which handles American currency or German of French as well as British could handle the Queen's Green. Do you think those who engineered Australia's network of LETSystems would shirk at helping install a national one there? But it would mean LETS organizers around the world would be giving up control of their little gardens of eden to the larger, more efficient, already-wired database handlers, the banks. With only a thanks for having started up and championed the Local prototypes which convinced the world that the Global design was optimal, I can understand resistance to the Queen taking over our LETSystems and running our branches for us but I'm sure she wouldn't mind hiring most of the current operators to keep running those systems smoothly for her at a much more reliable salary. We need a fait accomplit. LETSystems opening an account in her name would also be quite a reciprocal gift. It all starts with Her Majesty's account as Number #1. Whether she uses it for the region's good or whether your council uses it or whether you use it for the good, who won't mind chipping in their share of Time currency for their region's good. So call account #1 "the Queen" and start funding things whether she's there or not. There might be 1,000 of the 2,500 LETSystems in the world in the Commonwealth. Opening up 1000 ready sources of interest-free funding for Her Majesty's upkeep of the realm would be a fait- accomplit she could not fail to take notice of. My goal for 1997 is to convince every LETSystem in the Commonwealth to open up Her Majesty's account. And inform Her of her new no-limit interest- free line of Tally credit in your LETS community. Send her your list of goods and services and invite her to come see how LETS helps you cope. We need as many Commonwealth LETSystems to open an account in Her Majesty's name within the next few days - preferably System Account #1 - and inform Her Majesty of that fact. Before Christmas. By telegram if possible. And requesting Her Majesty grant me with my entourage of LETSers and political allies an audience. Amplify the power of my offer. I've said that she should open a Greendollar account. Do it for her. Let Her Majesty face a fait accomplit. All other LETSystems will soon to follow. Making news is never simply having or expressing good ideas. It's doing good ideas whether they win or not. Remember, I'll be laughed at the 10/11 times I lose when I draw to a 1/11 inside straight but I'll be doing the laughing when I pull in a pot with 12, 13, 14 or more bets that 1/11 times. It's up to you to get the word out to Britain's paupers and LETSer semi-paupers that national financial salvation is only one regal LETSystem member away.
*I am very encouraged by the econ-lets working philosophy, in *particular the idea of 'Openmindedness: *Be aware that no theory or insight is complete or perfect;(1) *Be open to constructive criticism and prepared to revise *beliefs in the light of evidence and experience; *Question our own assumptions and presuppositions; *Cultivate humility, honesty and humour. ' * I agree with the exception that some theories and insights are perfect. Game theory provides us with optimal perfect strategy. With respect to running something as trivial as a token system, optimal strategy is defined and unimprovable.
*He will need some help when he comes *to the UK, I hope whoever can will give it. * Yes. Most LETSers aren't used to exerting "political pressure" but it's past the time to sign up a steady one or two new members a week when we can shoot for the whole Commonwealth in one shot. I can bring along the spotlight but they have to bring along the show. It's time to be bold and dare to aim high.
Here are things that will need to be done:
- Can a London LETSer find Pauline and me accommodations for Canadian Green? - Can a London LETSer find us transportation for Canadian Green? - Can a London LETSer find me a large 120-bass accordion for Canadian Green? - Can a London LETSer find us a restaurant where the owner won't mind our meeting at the back? - Are there any London LETSers prepared to make a presentation to the political parties who attend the Dec 23 meeting. I don't have the UK data nor the overall number of politicians now in favor. - Can our Internet LETSers build a list of pro-LETS politicians in the UK? I know you've been working on the politicians lately and having a list of the positives could be an invaluable asset at the right time. - Can LETSers contact those politicians and ask them to telegraph their support to Her Majesty. With still 5 days to Christmas, any significant number of coherent messages pro-LETS would be noticed. - Richard Kay. The Islamic Party is prepared to meet with me to discuss a presentation to the Crown and a Liberal Democratic monetary reformer is keen to come along. As a long-time Liberal Democrat yourself, could you see if there's any chance that the Liberal Democrat leader could also attend? Would he be available for a conference call? We'll need people who can think fast and take unilateral action they're ready to stand behind on an instant's notice and party leaders are most likely to take such a stand. I know there are many UK politicians who now favor LETS. They must be found and convinced to add their voices, right now by telegram to Her Majesty, for a Royal LETS. - Are there any LETS Green Party members out there who would commit to inviting their party to our Dec 23 meeting. Michael Linton. We met when we were both Green Party of Canada members in 1984. After expelling me for advocating LETS without central authorization, the Green Party of Canada have since added LETS to their platform though they always fail to explain the LETS part of their program to the electorate which leaves it to our Abolitionist Party candidates. Don't think that wasn't funny, having our candidates point out the benefits of LETS while noting that one of our opponents also has it on their program but don't understand it's potential enough to talk about it. It's like having a rocket engine but the Greens have it hooked up to their lawn-mower. But Wendy Priesnitz, a Canadian Green Party leadership candidate signed the petition on her own initiative to use it like a rocket-engine for a Canada-wide LETS. With the New Zealand Green leader being a member of a LETS, the Greens must be invited to join this LETS Alliance. So, Maureen Mallinson. She's a LETS member. Spend the nickel and give her a call and ask her if she'll join the Canadian LETSer she met last year in urging Her Majesty to join LETS. - Are there any Social Crediters out there who would like to attend? Though the bureaucrats in the Social Credit Secretariat don't see the social nature of Greendollar credits, the New Zealand Social Crediter leader, John Wright, have endorsed LETS and I'm sure many rank and file will see it too. Can a LETSer in Christchurch give John Wright a call. - Ms. Lee of the Maori party who seemed pre-disposed to LETS. - Also, Australian Greens and any who know Maggie Deahms. Here's a lady who has led the fight to LETS. Surely she'll add a telegram urging Her Majesty enjoy the benefits of a LETS account too. I don't know if there's a social credit party with influence but they're always likely to like LETS. - The only way to get the Crown's serious attention at this point is with telegrams. If you're a LETSer and you can spare the two bucks, I call on you to add your wire for a Crown LETS now. - Call or fax your Member of Parliament that you want him to telegram his support for a a Commonwealth LETS. - A deluge of the palace with faxes or telegrams that you will serve Her Majesty for her own interest-free LETS Green Tallies would be nice. - Once the time and place of the meeting has been determined and posted, I'd ask you to fax that to your local media who will inform the national media that they're looking for the story. - Prepare a LETS media FAX network. Find LETSers with email and computer fax capability to build up a database of media numbers for their area. When a email LETS press release or news item on LETS comes through for fax transmission, it can be relayed toll-free to the media in that area. My goal will be to leave every LETSystem I visit committed to joining the LETS FAX network. - Can we build a list of LETSers prepared to give presentations to any politicians in their area I can persuade to listen? A sort of LETS Speaker's Bureau. - Does anyone know of any Greendollar events I can attend before Jan 11. I know how to generate the media that will go with those visits. When the "Turmel Tornado" hit New Zealand, it made lots of news. And I have several other interesting public relations stunts up my sleeve including "The Gambler's" world's biggest bet with a British Bookie. On LETS too. - Can any LETSer get a list of public appearances of Her Majesty and Prince Charles where they might notice our placard petitions for a Royal LETS. Picketing techniques like coordinated drawls at comfortable intervals overwhelm all noise. One large repetitive coherent waveform calmly wins everyone's attention. The coherent protest chant of a dozen comes across clearly amid the din of cheering and applause from hundreds. Trust me, our "LETS TO WORK" chant will be transmitted by the media. - LETSers need a LET$ badge made up of a labelled diskette. You must start wearing one openly. Throngs of people will ask about the program and they'll be coming to you rather than you having to go to them. - Can any London LETSer find someone to be video-cameraman so the Queen gets to hear our case whether we get in or not. Then some of our signs can read: "Watch the LETS videotape" from afar. - Post any results to both econ-lets and own.eco.lets for our Project Royal LETS. Things like any kind of progress with anyone would lend an atmosphere of action, progress, vibrancy on a project of immediate consequence that catches on. Building the Abolitionist Party and fielding 80 candidates, more than the Green Party's 79, in only three weeks was the height of excitement. A small team of workers making a few calls a day and reporting on results sounds like an army in action. We did this on the first nation-wide teleconference and tapes of those evenings' reports are still riveting.
CONVERGENCE OF OPPORTUNITIES The convergence of opportunities to put pressure on the Crown, Islam, Christianity, Judaism to endorse LETS now by making LETS a global issue now should not be missed. You don't want to miss this bandwagon. And with my accordion, my four Guinness records - I recently submitted 3 more - and with my biggest bet ever booked on the power of LETS by an official pauper, trust me, the media won't be able to ignore this LETS carnival. This is a chance for LETSers to push some buttons with Commonwealth-wide repercussions. You have no idea of the political power inherent in your financial organization. If LETSers decided to back the Green or Islamic party - or an Alliance like in New Zealand between Greens and Democrats - or if LETSers decided to form their own "LETS Party" - catchy phrase and true - their network, like any network of organizations could be switched to a political purpose in an instant's notice. Consider at the debtors' revolution Mexico against "El Barzon," "The Yoke" of 40% Debt Slavery. El Barzon have 800,000 members fighting the banks and certainly ready to become a large LETSystem on a moment's notice. 1997 should be a very good year for LETS large database installation. Someone please send them a note to check up on LETS. Think big. Are there any other large databases out there that could be switched on? Too many people the world over are in mortal misery and we know from experience that a Commonwealth-wide LETSystem life-boat could offer everyone much hope. LETS funding solves so many problems that to not help in the earliest effort to install the software on the largest database is an error in judgment of colossal proportion. How many think I was wrong when I argued to the Supreme Court of Canada:
EQUATION OF RESPONSIBILITY I pointed out they had the might to instantaneously, Effect repair on our industrial capacity. It's just like a conveyer belt with people in a line, Who fall into abyss of Luciferian design.
If you could press a button and cut power to the beast, The belt would have momentum but you'd lose the very least. With the production maximized of butter, not of guns, We still could not get there in time for all the weakest ones.
So there would be a finite loss of souls until the day, When all may access credit and for life support may pay. But if you'd waited for a while before you used your might, You'd lose some extra souls for failing to so expedite.
And if you had refused to press the button to this day, It would, on you, the blame for every fallen soul we'd lay. With simple mathematics we can count the number who, Have perished by inaction of the men with power few.
The number of souls perishing, all due to the delay, Is equal to the number who do perish on that day. With 40,000 children dying every single day, Responsibility belongs to those who had the say.
Since all the judges had the power to compel the banks, To fix the killer program so they don't deserve our thanks. The number they must answer for which day to day does climb, Is equal to the number who have perished since that time.
That's why in my latest application to the Supreme Court of Canada, I pointed out that since the last time they ignored me on the question of usury, their K-slabs had grown to over 200 million dead babies. That's right. I told the Supreme Court that if they had abolished interest and restricted the banks' computers to a LETS service charge back in 1981, the whole world would have followed in short order and the interest-free credit would have saved those 200 million savable but now dead babies. If you've read my Supreme Court cases against usury posted in our "own.eco.lets" newsgroup, you know I wasn't kidding when I indicted usury as genocide of the paupers 5 times in the Supreme Court of Canada. If providing credit to the paupers saves the paupers, the denying them that credit for life-support is what's killing them. That's why Mohammed would make war and kill the usurers while I only break them with a deck of cards. To raise funds for the Global Abolish Interest Rates project, I made war with a deck of cards resulting in many victims and much pain. If their families had had their own interest-free credit lines, I'd have been able to beat up on daddy without the sadness in my heart as I inexorably and heartlessly broke every friend who sat at the gaming tables with me. I see a future world where busting out daddy at the tables is not cause of suffering to anyone but the loser at the tables and how much can he suffer when junior can use junior's own Green credit card to buy daddy supper when daddy gets busted out by Turmel. Fortunately, I prefer breaking banks which resulted in my being barred from the Blackjack tables at the Hilton and Sands Casinos in Las Vegas. And someday, I hope to hold the record for having broken the biggest banking cartel, though invisible, in history. And without letting one banker be shot as God told Habbakuk usually happens when their debtors slip their yokes of debt slavery. I've always said that the solution to world financial problems could take place in the twinkling of an eye. This is no joke. We're hearing possibilities of direct access to the Crown Prince who strikes me as another square peg in a round hole who might be up to the task of moving fast. All He has to do is join LETS and I'll be ready to work for him as my monarch. But if we don't get a LETS as a Christmas present, it could always be a New Year's present or next year's Christmas present. What if we win? What if Prince Charles finds LETS as bright as we think it is and he'd rather have a LETS account than deal with the loansharks he'll inherit with the Crown from his mother. We're fighting the Beast of Exponential Debt and you've been invited in on the kill. It's an assault you won't want to miss.
