Ho hum, just another day in Crazyland.
We'll be dancing in the streets !!
No sorry - you skipped the first tune:
your dance party has been preempted...
ah.. that explains last weeks volatility, perhaps even the fat finger discount.
We need this man to be elected President!!!!!!
President? More like Mother Fucking Global Dicator for Life!!!
I am Chumbawamba.
Is it just me or does 'community activist' as Prez seem like a somewhat short of brilliant idea? I just finished observing the 'ONE' on CSPAN. Haven't laughed so hard, nor felt so gut check sick before in my life.
We are living the definition of surreal.
A Community Activist has every bit of succeeding at President as anyone in any other profession. Exceptionalism can be found in all walks of life.
The problem is duping an entire populace into believing they have "elected" a leader who is in reality a pre-chosen figurehead for a hidden group of "elites" that actually call the shots.
Al Sharp would call that an UNCLE TOM, no?
i believe he would. perhaps one day he will.
With all due respect (lots), I would say that the larger problem is a populace so easily duped. American idol as prez...WTF?
it is really a question i meet too.
the day after tommorow will be a happy day and maybe we should go anywhere else to make fun .just say something about Maize Milling Machine
When they call the roll in the Senate, the Senators do not know whether to answer "Present" or "Not guilty." Theodore Roosevelt

We can buy time as long as other countries continue to blow up financially. You can't outrun a bear in the woods, but you can buy time by outrunning your buddies.
Ha! Great analogy!
And smear some "greece" on their European asses just to make sure! Bears love greece.
grease and bears stop it im gettin horned up

if any of your buddies are faster than you.........trip them!
Yeah but you know, a couple umteen trillion here and a couple umteen trillion there, and pretty soon your talking real money.
hey Miscreant, time to rehearse your "roll roll roll your debt"
Roll roll roll your debt gently down the stream. Merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream.
Kite kite kite your check gently cross the sky. Merrily merrily merrily life is but a cry.
Kick kick kick your can. Gently down the road. Merrily merrily merrily freedoms going to corrode.
...brilliant. But for cadence: 2nd verse -
we're all gonna die
3rd verse -
merrily merrily merrily, waiting to explode...
Although we need as many verses as possible - this game is going to go on for a while...
Since we're singing debt songs, I had one from another thread that I might interject here:
My charge card 'tis of thee
sweet tool of usury
please bring me bling.
Land where my credit died
land of the card: DENIED
from gallows far and wide
watch debt slaves swing!
generally clever, but "please bring me bling" hit a 'chord' - classic.

Take one down, in debt make it drown,

Eh, they cadence is all fucked up :(
"A rolling loan carries no loss" Famous quote from Depression era banker.
It was $11,700,000,000,000 only 10 months ago.
Let it ride on black 14. We are the USA! We can never lose...
It's less scary if you write it as "$13T".
Actually no, it isn't. Just kill me now.
or, in scientific notation (!) 1.3 x 10^10 !!!
or just say it real fast.
float's will run out of precision soon... time to start emigrating all that code to double's.
Naw, just store it as a text string. PHP will handle the rest.
Hey, its still smaller than a mole (6 x 10^23) of $!
It is now, but in a few years?
Better get that mole checked, looks like cancer...
You don't have to be a chemisty nerd to appreciate that one.
Yeah, whatever...but more importantly - who's going to win American Idol next week...Lee or Chrystal? I'm kinda pulling for Lee. He's got that good grunge thing going but Chrystal really has a great voice. I'm on pins and needles!!!
You actually know the names of the AI contestants?
I am aghast, and Chumbawamba.
So far, the more debt we rack up, the appetite for our bonds has become even more voracious.
To wit, note that the 30-yr. yield came within a hairsbreadth of 3.99% this morning, and the 10-yr. at 3.1%.
Thirty years ago, our debt was less than a fourth of what it is now and interest rates were driven up to 15% by the "bond vigilantes".
Seems like as we lurch from one "convulsion" to the next, investors will instantaneously flee to our gilt-edged bonds and our currency for safety.
Bond shorts have been destroyed the last two months.
If the bus slows down too much it explodes. The never ending journey. Hope it is a solar powered bus, as the stock market tells us the sun is always shining.
When this is over I doubt there will be any currencies left other than the USD.
That debt sealing is as fragile as a soap bubble is to a bullet.
