  • Hi,
    I am recruiting you any for universalisation, charismation, divinisation and presentation,
    Sorry, for this comment, i have commented on topic for recession, but then i went universal, pardon me .... !
    i am not doing too much, i am doing that what i think it has to be done ....
    my solution for recession is universalisation, means evaluate all resourcess and assets of universe and then apply necessary sum of new currency (Zik=100$) to pay all debts and to buy off all taxes from national governments ....
    of course for this we need adequate entity, i see on horizon only myself as the secular and universal, legal and official The God, recognised by UN and with contracts with all national states governments,
    of course i invite you all to create a fresh new account at google, free, but with my data: universal identities names and universal residences on Internet, like this one: Zababau Ganetros Cirimbo Ostangu ogiriny64256142, ( you can create this one but then inform me), access to account i have to have because this is divinising universalisation, but you can open it for all, i simply have to arrange it to adapt to paradigm, isn't it ...... so, adapt to new changes and modifications in the arrangement of the history ...
