LaRouche Leesburg Road Tour Guide 2007
When you are on the side of the road where Ibykus stood, turn off AM 1520 WTRI for a bit as we will go from Sinatra to Shelley. Shed a tear to the now torn down great pillars and read a poem called
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
Oh, did anyone tell the yutes what was done with Lyn's property?
To find out what happened you can ask Lonnie, Ed Spannaus, Barbara, and even Lyn (you could have asked Uwe Friesecke, Linda de Hoyos, and Ken Kronberg too, but two are out of the org and one is dead) . Please do ask Ed, Barbara, Lonnie, et al. because for years I could not get a straight answer about how the property was refinanced back and forth until it was lost for good. Since Anderson held the note, I doubt that we had any claim to the property since I know our history of paying notes. The LC only pays attention to c=256 notes and hardly paid other notes. In this kind of wacky financing I can only think of my experience in owning homes. I would never put money into expensive improvements if I could not make the monthly payments and had wild financing like the LC had. To make Helga happy we put a boatload of money into a swimming pool and horsey stuff while members were given 5 bucks a day.
"LaRouche and the LC became a model of what is facing many subprime borrowers today who overbuy, overspend and have no common sense about money."
One must understand how the LC does finances. There is no finance committee or spread sheets made up and analysis done like in a tradional business, non profit or even your own household budget. No matter what you think is going on, once the magic words "Lyn say's" are heard, then you do what ever, no matter how inane or insane it is. A property like Ibykus is a bargain at 1.3 million dollars; however, it takes a lot of money to run it and that is what was draining the weekly income. Routine maintainance, utilities, food , cleaning besides the monthly mtge payment quickly add up. Lyn and the LC became a model of what is facing many sub prime borrowers today who overbuy, overspend and have no common sense about money. After all, this is the Bizarro world of Larouche where you do not like accountants, money and budgeting. One gets the sense that as long as Lyn an d Helga had members working as cheap help, all was good. The LC help got 5 bucks a day, in the testimony you can read where Rick Magraw paid the security people 20 bucks a day. The phony CIA scam artists and other hustlers had to be laughing their ••••• off once they left Ibykus knowing that they were getting thousands each week by filling Lyn's head with one delusion after another. Phil U filled Lyn's glass with Rheingau and is still paying the price for this to this day. One thing about Rheingau, it is not cheap and we bought it by the case.
It looked the party would never end and when Lyn was sent to prison, dreams of Ibykus filled his head nightly. The party did come to an end when after several refinancing schemes it was all over and to this day Lyn carries the grudge against Fernando, de Hoyos, Uwe F, Ken Kronberg--and even Lonnie--for its loss.
Lyn talks about Leesburg being ground zero for real estate collapse, Ibykus is the real ground zero. It was sold and eventually became a site where one plot can sell for what the whole 171 acres was bought for! When you drive into the Ibykus property you should look for the signs that say "Beacon Hill" Yes! Lyn's Shangri la is now a very upscale development where Ibykus is now known as BEACON HILL an EQUESTRIAN & GOLF COMMUNITY !!!
Go to this realtor's Beacon Hill page,yutes, and click on the "Visual Tour."
Let the soothing New Age Satanic music relax your card table shrine-challenged vocal chords and breathe in and out to clear your carcinogen- filled lungs from your off-ramp deployments. Take the tour and when it starts again, go to the third picture with the barn, THE BARN.
"LaRouche said: 'The ones who will rally to us are the emotionally crippled, the grey-faced, the neurologically impaired who, in rallying to us will do the only worthy thing to give meaning to their lives.'"
Awhile back I posted one of Lyn's famous "Sermons from the Barn" about the future of the LC. Here it is , from Dec 20 1987 to the members in THE BARN.
LAROUCHE Dec. 20, 1987: "Creativity is one of my obsessions. If you don't have creative insight, you can't see how we can win; if you can see how we can win, then we will win. Only we can save the world; only we can do the job, because nobody else even knows what the job is. Would you like to be the savior of humanity? ... Yes, I was chosen. You were chosen. Not with fanfare, not with the blaring trumpets of archangel Gabriel. It doesn't happen that way. It happens as you walk down the street thinking about the problems of the world and realize only you can do the job ... You are chosen. Like John Scialdone's lawyer said to the jury: 'You poor schmucks'!
... Look around you. Who will support us? Who will rally to us? The ones who will rally to us are the emotionally crippled, the grey-faced, the neurologically impaired who, in rallying to us will do the only worthy thing to give meaning to their lives. Thus they will be able to say, 'I wasn't important but I contributed to victory"."
