And chocolate rations have been increased to 20 grams per week.

(...from 30 grams).

Also, Oceania has always operated under the debt ceiling.

The word, Debt Ceiling, can be seen as Thought Crime. This egregious flaw of Thought Crime can be corrected in Newspeak as, Budget Surplus!


For the State, Comrade!

In the good old days sheeple were taught the following.

Economy strong,   Enemy baaaa,d... .

Now there is some confusion, suddenly things seem a bit more complex.

Just where did all this talk of ponzi scemes and banking cartels come from anyhow?

Remember sheeple, just cover your eyes, block your ears and keep repeating.

Economy strong,   Enemy baaaa,d... .

Economy strong,   Enemy baaaa,d... .

Economy strong,   Enemy baaaa,d... .

I don't know about chocolate rations increased to 20 grams per week. Perhaps high grade marijuana?

Is Gold money?   A few years ago (1947) the goverment said something different than The Bernank did last week.   2 minute government video from 1947.  Check it out.

Why else does the mint put 50$ on a gold oz coin and call it "LEGAL TENDER".

That's 50 real dollars for ya!

1 real dollar = 32 paper dollars

Using Silver as the rule: $1real dollar =$40.00 FRN!

it's annoying when people get obsessed with the word "money" when it comes to gold because it doesn't make a shit what your definition of money is, all that matters is that you get more fiat for your gold when countries around the world debase their currency, whether the bernank calls it money or defines it as money is meaningless, just because he doesn't call it money doesn't change its value or anyone elses opinion of it, it's semantics

My response is always: "Okay, so it's not money.  And you're going to turn me down if I offer you a whole chest of it?!..."

I quickly follow up with " shut the eff up."


Money or not, it _is_ value.  Potential purchases.  A universally accepted store of purchasing power.  More "money" than that green TP in our wallets now, isn't it?

One need only check yahoo finance page to see how news is twisted around every day to make the trade of the day suit with the so-called news. A great forum for MSM to keep shearing the sheeple.

Cut off all news flow and watch sentiment really surge.

Here's a headline for a slow news day.

Kenny Powers is the new MFCEO of K Swiss

For those of you who haven't joined the cult following, Kenny Powers is a character from the HBO show Eastbound and Down. A down and out former pro baseball pitcher, who is a totally politically incorrect redneck. The show got cult status after season 1.  They almost didn't have a season 2 but it happened. Kenny played ball for a Mexican team during season 2, and he gave endorsements to K Swiss Tubes sneakers and got stock options. Well now they are filming season 3. Kenny will exercise his stock options and be the majority owner of K Swiss ( a real company ) KSWS. K Swiss, the real company is all-in with Kenny Powers and I suspect K Swiss Tubes will be flying off the shelves. Here's a preview of season 3 and I guarantee you will laugh your ass off. And props to the real management of K Swiss for being the most un-corporate company in America.

Agreed.  Eastbound and Down is great stuff.

How about this news via Drudge:

Called "Putin's Army", it features a video of a blonde student called Diana who struts along Moscow's streets in high heels and a black suit before scrawling "I will tear my clothes off for Putin" on a white top in red lipstick and starting to undo her clothes.

Inviting girls to strip off for Putin for the chance of winning an iPad2, the campaign comes ahead of the March 2012 presidential vote. Putin was president between 2000-2008 before handing the reins to his protégé Dmitry Medvedev.

Putin Girl?


That's so 2008.

Yeah but I see the Russians getting much more overt and sexy about it.  There's an honesty to that story that is almost beautiful.

Fascism it's here. Chocolate rations have been increased too i here. Double good.

Too bad we dont have the all-you-can-drink rotgut vodka rations that the Russian people can at least take some comfort in.

augie's picture

I thought it was called "victory gin"? 

æther's picture

I thought it was called "Patroit Act."  Oh wait, that's something else.


We got all the complete and perfect hopelessness of '84 and all the insanity of "brave new" without anything in return.  Soma.  iPad? TV? Internet?  And yet to the educated (I don't mean "schooled") brain, even the drug hurts. 


And then I remember that we haven't descended into the abyss yet.  We're still just peeking over the edge........

Sounds like you are ready to try some DMT.

California is currently undergoing a series of earthquakes that almost identically recreates what was going on in Fukushima days prior to the disaster; that's a Black Swan awaiting. I wonder how Bloomberg would spin the collapse of the Golden Gate Bridge into the Pacific...

slewie the pi-rat's picture

really? i haven't felt a thing, but i'll smoking my earthquake anziety syuff, just in case.

here we see the "time is of the essence" dynamic of things.  a stitch in time... forunately, we here in uncle sugar land have all the time we can print.  this can't happen here.  trust me. 

soon, we shall get a better clue as to what the banksters want, now, for completely freaking us out for the 2nd time in under 4 years. 

slewie to banksters:  you got nothin comin!!!

slewie to goobermints everywhere:  fuk you!!!

i may end up homeless down @ the creek, but, hey!  maybe i'll get laid! 

this is pretty cool, really, tho.  if you have any silver you haven't sold to the banksters yet, you can get over 40 bux/oz today, right now, if you hurry! 

styooopid me: cash & PMs?  dammit, i keep missing all this apportunity to build pyramids of paper wealth! 

world history redux:  in the late 20th century, the banksters tooled up their puppets to de-regulate.  in the early 21st, they were on the event horizon of the New World Order, as pre-ordained in the minds of rockefeller & co, rothschild & co, and "god" just as the big orange clockwork was ideating, and "god" spoke the word of creation, which was apparently, according to the very best science, a very loud, big "bang". 

soon, after one after another "what happened?"  "what went wrong?"  "who could have seen this coming" and "we must do something" 's, they went full retard ponzi.  again.  but word-wide for the very first time, due to the cunning of rocky's agent, henry the K, and his puppet, from yorba linda, tricky dicky nixon, who had prepared the groundwork a generation before, while bankrupting the Treasury in asia just to lose, kiss mao's ass and embrace china, while stifling the revo @ home by hog-tying bobby seale while sending him away for 5 years, shooting demontrators in cold blood, and ending the draft, while lying about every single freaking thing that came up. 

now, we have news of mr ponzi's arrest.  can this be? what will the NWO doodoo now?

got paper? be continued...
