Lucas is really hurting financially. Apparently, he has helped others who have been in trouble, and now he’s asking for our help. Lucas not only has his own blog, but he comes here to mine to visit and share. I’m going to risk his ire and put out some of his personal words to me, because if when times are really tough we cannot help one of our own with something – and if lots of us help with just a little, it will surely add up – then why are we here?
I realize that many of you may be shouldering exta burdens already, but surely there are some who feel called to help. Please, consider answering that call.
Lucas – to me, as he alerted me very early that Ben’s post for today was already out:
Yes, I am always up 6.am. But we have a time difference of I belief 6
hours. I had to do a lot to keep floating. If you may have read on my
blog. I am self employed and the austerity and crisis has kicked in hard
for me. Non-paying clients and a big client gone due to reorganizing the
whole firm due to the crisis. So my income is less than 25% of what I had.
There is not much I live on now for a couple of months. So debt is
piling and I can not get any other clients etc. So basicly I have a bit
of money coming in from smaller jobs and from donations on my blog. That
is so little that I almost fry my ass off. Working and keeping the blog
in between working for 18 hours a day, seven days a week. So that is
what it is like here. As you have read.
The dutch government handed its resignation today to the Queen. We will
not be able to fullfill the Maastricht criteria from the EU Treaties and
will be punished for not having enough done enough to get the debt down to 3%.
We have elections probably end september or begin october. So know we
are in a similar position as the others now in austerity where just
before the crisis.
It will take just a little bit to get The Netherlands
downgraded and therefore getting higher percentages to pay back loans
from IMF or ECB. So we are next in line as I suspect also to be Belgium
and Germany as they will go after NL goes down the hedge. So first
Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and France and what now. So we
are for sure on the way of total ruining everything as the system will
collapse. The Lagarde show by IMF that says one day it has money , then
the other that it needs money and the other day the money it has is not
alone for the Eurozone. So short IMF has as know moneyproblems and they
are bad. So we just have to wait till the next blow will take down the
whole thing. Enough from my short Geo-political insights.
Talk to you soon and if you can do me a favor and refer to my blog and
that people can help out with a little donation if they can miss something.
We all need to help each other as we have to keep the flame burning in
bringing out the news. I helped when I could and now I can not anymore
and need help myself.
Love and Light,
. . . and here is a link to Lucas’ request for financial help:
I have asked not so long ago for your support and to make donations to keep the blog. I thank all who have made a donation as I have most personally sent my thanks already. Those I may have forgotten all donations and prayers and good thoughts sent all are appreciated much and I thank you for it. The donations have been easing the financial troubles but it is not enough.
So I have to keep asking your help in donations. As I have said already if all my readers in one week just donated 1 euro/dollar that would make up to 45.000 euro/dollars. That money could help a lot more people. I have helped enough people already in the past. They had my share of help when I was able to give them some. I am not in that position now anymore I need it myself. So keep me in your thoughts and prayers and also help if you can with what you can spare. It is much appreciated.
