She was an elfin Pinnace; lustilyI dipp’d my oars into the silent Lake,And, as I rose upon the stroke, my BoatWent heaving through the water, like a Swan;When from behind that craggy Steep, till thenThe bound of the horizon, a huge Cliff,As if with voluntary power instinct,Uprear’d its head. I struck, and struck againAnd, growing still in stature, the huge CliffRose up between me and the stars, and still,With measur’d motion, like a living thing,Strode after me. With trembling hands I turn’d,And through the silent water stole my wayBack to the Cavern of the Willow tree.There, in her mooring-place, I left my Bark,And, through the meadows homeward went, with graveAnd serious thoughts; and after I had seenThat spectacle, for many days, my brainWork’d with a dim and undetermin’d senseOf unknown modes of being; in my thoughtsThere was a darkness, call it solitude,Or blank desertion, no familiar shapesOf hourly objects, images of trees,Of sea or sky, no colours of green fields;But huge and mighty Forms that do not liveLike living men mov’d slowly through my mindBy day and were the trouble of my dreams.

The national debt has, in fact, made more men rich than have a right to be so, or, rather, any ultimate power, in case of a struggle, of actualizing their riches. It is, in effect, like an ordinary, where three hundred tickets have been distributed, but where there is, in truth, room only for one hundred. So long as you can amuse the company with any thing else, or make them come in successively, all is well, and the whole three hundred fancy themselves sure of a dinner; but if any suspicion of a hoax should arise, and they were all to rush into the room at once, there would be two hundred without a potato for their money; and the table would be occupied by the landholders, who live on the spot.
“Now comes the night of Enitharmon’s joy!
Who shall I call? Who shall I send?
That Woman, lovely Woman! may have dominion
Arise O Rintrah thee I call! & Palamabron thee.
Go! tell the human race that Womans love is Sin!
That an Eternal life awaits the worms of sixty winters
In an allegorical abode where existence hath never come:
Forbid all Joy, & from her childhood shall the little female
Spread nets in every secret path.”
“Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and owlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.”
“The Vision of Christ that thou dost see,Is my vision’s greatest enemy.Thine has a long, hook nose like thine,Mine has a snub nose like mine.Thine is the Friend of all Mankind,Mine speaks in Parables to the blind.Thine loves the same world that mine hates,Thy heaven-doors are my hell-gates.Socrates taught what MelitusLoathed as a nation’s bitterest curse.And Caiaphas was, in his own mind,A benefactor to mankind.Doth read the Bible day and night,But thou readest black where I read white.”
“in that that’s a very good way of putting the problem however must undo we are going to have to say okay they’re

The implications of the work are taken up again in America with the King of England trembling as he sees Orc, the embodiment of the American colonies. The Angel of Albion believes Orc is the Anti-Christ and Orc believes the King of England is the same. This is followed by Orc’s apocalyptic vision:The morning comes, the night decays, the watchmen leave their stations;The grave is burst, the spices shed, the linen wrapped up

Boris is skating and continues to skate not on merely thin ice but already broken ice. Brino is holed below the waterline and the Brexit Party gang of Four, Nigel Farage’s skinning on Andrew Neil and both the unredacted Trade talk and Treasury committee reports on the effects of the WIthdrawal treaty on the Irish border meant that Boris doubled down on already exposed lies. The BBC Reality Check did Boris no favours and the Interjections of the very supportive to Johnson Nick Robinson simply could not Dig Johnson out of his own Mendacious hole.Another interesting discussion in the spin room was this one. Between Alex Phillips from the Brexit Party and Amelia Womack for the Greens, Womack is all that is bad in my view with both Green Party and British politics and Alex Phillips represents what I think is the Hope for a Better Future.at 13.45 minshttps://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000cn8n/election-2019-reaction-to-the-bbc-prime-ministerial-debatehttps://t.co/QoQ13LndAS— Wiki_Ballot (@wiki_ballot) December 7, 2019found this retweet on Alexanders Twitter she has a sense of humour too.https://twitter.com/Iibdem/status/1203065462202019840Bris Mentioned Pelayo Socialism last night referring to John MacDonald I had not heard of it, here is a good articlehttps://remnantnewspaper.com/web/index.php/articles/item/3434-the-revolution-george-soros-and-the-assault-on-the-westit refers to Gramsci’s view on Subverting cultural hegemons, Of Course, Johnson is not a Conservative, I agree with Hitchins and consider Neo-Liberals like Johnsons to be a peculiar species of Trotskyite. and they are no better or worse than Marxist Leninists or Stalinists.On the numbers alone john this is far from over and time remains to tell us whether pugilistically Corbyn worked the Bojo body sufficiently to wear him out enough for a knock out punch or certainly a Draw / Hung Parliament..

On Asymmetric risk when one considers the leverage implicit in fractional reserve banking the equation looks even more lop sided I am working on a pamphlet calling for Legal reform regarding the ability of Mortgagees in Possession through their appointed receivers ( who are in law the agent of the borrower but appointed by the banks.
“The idea that Banks have been caught out more than home owners is perverse. The Banks have created commitments for the borrowers to them and actually not given in return what the Borrowers largely believed I.E that their Mortgage is matched by and equal deposit/ saving of another bank customer. At best the banks have 1 tenth of this covered 10% and in many cases it is more like 1 fortieth 1/40 2.5% so on a mortgage of £100,000
the bank only has capital of at most £10k at risk and in all likely hood more probably £4k at risk. Therefore in distressed sales all on going mortgage payments made should be viewed accordingly and and distressed asset sale again viewed similarly.
I,e a mortgage holder with 25k negative equity on a mortgage of 100k still has an asset worth at least 7.5 x the capital reserve the bank allocated against making that loan. I.E the borrower remains in debt for 100k a new debt of 75k is created and and the bank gets all its basic capital back has had the interest in the meantime and will still milk the original borrower through the Bankruptcy process for a further 2 years representing further pure profit.”
Full Blog which is really just my notes so far.( some of them at any rate)
The Banks win at all stages along the line and yet they still managed to cock their own system up Through Greed and the fact that there is no Honour amongst Thieves.

I really like the Lithograph ( or is it a drawing)? by the way.
