The chinamen is not the issue.

redpill's picture

Dude, chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature.

PY-129-20's picture

redpill, this isn't a guy who built the railroads here. This is a guy...

AldousHuxley's picture

...a guy who put life savings in TBills.

Id fight Gandhi's picture

Like I said, uh, Wu peed on my rug.

Bokkenrijder's picture

That rug really tied the room together...

OldTrooper's picture

And these guys peed on it...

OldTrooper's picture

You know it, Arizona!  However, the proper reply, of course, would have been, "Shut the fuck up, Donny."

Problem Is's picture

"Donny you're out of your element! Dude, the Chinaman is not the issue here!"

the only thing that makes me happier than a big lebowski qoute is 10 other peoples lebowski qoutes. All of you just made my day.

"You said it, man. Nobody fucks with the Jesus."

The Dude on the effects of FED policy?

"This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, a lotta outs, a lotta what-have-yous. And, uh, a lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head. Fortunately, I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my mind, you know, uh, limber."

That made my waking up from a nightmare so much easier. Thanks mate.

Say what you will about the tenets of National Socialism.  At least it's an ethos.

BWWWAAAAHHH!!! I thought the NEW term was Warlock Vatican Assassins...

He peed on my rug man.... It tied the room together.

Right! Going nowhere, FAST!

grekko's picture

Right, he's bought and paid for.  The problem is the bankrupt JPM (that owns the FED), which can be destroyed by buying an ounce of silver (make sure it's delivered into your possesion).  Let's destroy the power of the private bank that runs the country.  Someday there will be a margin call on all the shorts that JPM plays (hopefully soon!) .

If only.  PM = good, JPM = bad, but they've got plenty of tricks up their sleeve.  "Bank holidays", "state of emergency," "suspension of elections," et. al.

I've been to China, they all have motorized bicycles now.  American, liberating the tired legs of the Chinese by exporting our money so they can buy electric bicycles!

tmosley's picture

Hmmm, you're saying that our hot checks enabled the Chinese to buy Chinese-made electric engines for their bicycles?

You MUST work for the Fed.  Say hi to Ben for me.

chet's picture

That's where we're headed.  First we'll all buy smaller cars, then small used cars, then mopeds, then electric bikes. 

This devolution to third world standards is considered "progress" by the "planners" here in Portland, OR.

grekko's picture

No, the powers that be.  But delight in the retribution to come.

That's where we're headed.  First we'll all buy smaller cars, then small used cars, then mopeds, then electric bikes. 

You forgot Rickshaws.....

And what's the name of the chicken that you're fixing for me?

Bingo!  Sit in the cold and dark and not do much = virtue.

"Easily the feel-good movie of the year!  Two thumbs up!"


falak pema's picture

All it lacks is Benocide's Romanov beard on that guy!

Waterfallsparkles's picture

Perfect.  Peddling like crazy but not getting anywhere.  Just like Bennie Bucks printing press.

Id fight Gandhi's picture

And a chinaman doing it is the icing on the cake

OldTrooper's picture

You know it!  Did you notice the chinaman is lying in the middle of a road practically begging for a truck or bus to finish him off?  Rather ironic.

Turn it upside down, and it resembles SuddenDebt.
