TOO BIG TO FAIL, OR TOO STUPID TO LIVE?
(AND WHAT’S THIS ABOUT A FREE LUNCH?)

There’s only so much any one person can do to combat the rapacious and malevolent greed that is devouring this planet in the guise of various governments and mega-businesses. But for what it’s worth, I’m willing to buy 100 lunches for 100 people – the first 100 people to close an account at one of the big banks and open one with a credit union. The amount of our money that these parasites devour from our pockets is literally criminal. Our government is complicit in the giga-crime ($70,000,000,000 bailout, anyone?). Just how many people can you buy off with a sliver of $70,000,000,000 anyway? Why are people starving in the streets, or barely making ends meet for years at a time, while malicious banking gnomes are syphoning entire markets of wealth into their clever little fiefdoms of ill-gotten gazillions? Some of the responsibility is ours, because we empower them by dealing with them at all. To ignore something is even more powerful than attacking it in many respects. So by digging the evil roots of the banks right out of our personal lives, we can deprive them of the means to continue, and empower local alternatives – like the neighbourhood credit union.

One more thing: The mortgage (a literal contract until death) is the backbone of the banking cartels. The scam is run by illegally inventing fraudulent wealth on their books by simple ledger (now computerized) entry when providing “loans”, and collecting untold zillions in real sweat equity as us suckers repay actual dollars at the risk of losing our homes or cars or businesses. It’s a heck of a racket, and if you ever look around and wonder what’s wrong with the world, then you should know that it’s largely our continued tolerance for the lowest form of human parasite – the crooked international bankers – and their atrocious schemes (that are completely illegal in the observant muslim world, by the way, which might help you understand a lot of that more recent nonsense as well). To address this horrendous quagmire of evil consequence and ignorant complicity, I will also give $50 worth of product from the store if you switch a mortgage away from one of the big banks and over to a credit union. I’ll bet you’ve been meaning to get around to it anyway. The nice people at the bank branch are obviously not serial liars, thieves, and murderers – but the clowns running that circus certainly are.

If anyone has any other good ideas on correcting or dissolving the big banks, feel free to let me know. Meanwhile, 100 free lunches await. Just drop me an e-mail at Leon@HairyT.com to advise me of your triumphant affirmation of financial sovereignty and arrange a time and place for lunch. Alternately mail correspondence to Leon c/o Hairy Tarantula 354 Yonge St. Toronto Ont. M5B-1S5. I will post updates periodically. Let’s play a different game…

Hairy Tarantula – Journey into Nyx PTQ: Location & Parking

 

PTQJIN Location Page Top Header Bar Bevelled

Nestled in the heart of downtown Toronto, Ryerson University’s Kerr Hall gymnasium provides ample space for more than 500 wizards and witches to wage cardboard warfare throughout the entire day. The Hall itself is located at 379 Victoria Street and is a mere 5 minute walk from both the Yonge/College and the Yonge/Dundas subway stations.

PTQJIN Parking Banner Final

For those of you traveling by car (or caravan), downtown Toronto offers a wide variety of parking options – but they aren’t always easy to find. For your convenience here is a Google map with numerous public parking lots labeled. You may also be able to find pay meters on the street but visitors are advised that parking enforcement is aggressive in Toronto – if you park in restricted areas or in residential spots without tags you absolutely will be ticketed or towed.

EVOLVE or REVOLVE

You really have to have your head firmly lodged in a tight dark space to not recognize that something is terribly wrong in the world of human affairs these days. It’s a lot easier to miss that there is a lot terribly right in the world of human affairs (and that is a side-effect of what’s wrong). Douglas Adams once shared some sage advice with the world when he offered the axiom “Don’t panic!”. It’s a new twist on an old admonishment to be sure, but still bears keeping in mind as we watch the crew of our Titanic civilization frantically rearranging deck-chairs and throwing the women and children overboard (ostensibly into life-boats – please tell me there are life-boats over that side!) Fear suppresses love, and love dissolves fear, so where are you going to lay your chips? Since so much time and money is spent in an ongoing and concerted effort to render us afraid, and so dumb and dehumanized that we even doubt the power of love, it behooves all sane and conscious people to spare no effort in reversing this trend. Around the world a spontaneous eruption of human solidarity is forming – a communion that threatens to completely transform the diseased social, political, and economic structures that are decaying around us. Parallel to this overdue natural evolutionary necessity is a frantic criminal conspiracy to channel this blossoming consciousness into the same tired, self-destructive revolutionary models of yesteryear. In an effort to protect our evolutionary potential from our revolutionary habits, I am delighted to offer for your consideration a treasure of a book called “The Manifesto of Real Democracy”. As putting prophets before profits is a longstanding company policy, we are also pleased to offer a full money-back guarantee. The book is regularly priced at $10, but we’re selling it for only $6.67 in the hopes that you’ll read it. If you bring it back for a refund after having done so, then we’ll thank you for reading it as we hand you your money back!

It’s high time for our evolution, and we’ll need to be wise manifestoas serpents to avoid another iou revolution instead. This book lifts the facade from our “democracy” revealing the poisonous “demockery” lurking underneath. If you know something’s terribly wrong with western “democracy” but can’t quite put your finger on it… then read this book! Cheap, timely, actionable, peaceful solutions included!!!

P.S.: Congratulations to the Libyan peoples’ Jamahiriya government (that’s the legitimate one whose assets Harper wants to steal and give to the “rebel” TNC crooks for kickbacks) on the capture of the CIA’s Tripoli HQ, and on breaking the sieges on Sirte and Bani Walid. Keep those rats running, colonel – your wisdom is winning the real war spectacularly, thank God! NATO is like a petulant child with a stick who’s been told after eating all of his honey that he can’t have any more right now…and Libya is like a big juicy nest of bees.

P.P.S.: This note is for those people who take umbrage at my posts to the point that they want to debate loudly in the shop – just not when I’m there. Please stop abusing my people. Grow a spine and come and talk to ME about MY opinions, or just S.T.F.U., or go and pester someone who’s scared of your PC threats and mindless regurgitation of tired lies masquerading as “truth”. Thanks, and do try to have a nice day – nobody is bombing YOUR neighbourhood right now here in Canada, so be happy!
