Lemme get this right...
Erik Estrada escorts a platoon of Daisy Dukes to Commando, and the 2030 field of Mr. Olympias is spawned on the backs of Mexifornians?
The Sperminator's big mistake was to mess with the Kennedys.
Guess who's going to be DSK's cellbuddy?
Anybody else believe Conan is about to take a permanent vacation in the Austrian alps?
Hasta la vista baby. No extradition.
first Sara Palin then Arnold, if I wanted Business Insider "headlines" I would visit Business Insider, whatever
Totally off topic, but I think worth reading. It is about how the market for sovereign CDS is total bullshit and basically fake insurance. I wish more people would talk about this. if i can find a more relevant article to post this on later i will, but just wrote it so figured I'd start the conversation now:
So is FDIC insurance. IT'S called fraud. It's used to make all these risky institutions have the absolute lowest borrowing costs.
Yea, but FDIC is mandated insurance. Banks have to pay into the fund, and it is backed up explicitly by the Federal Reserve. This is totally different than a supposedly private market for insurance against defaults. Besides, its not like you can trade FDIC contracts. CDS is meant as a tool for gambling.
Simplistic analysis. US CDS is priced in Euros and clears on independently funded clearinghouses. While in principle a US EOD would appear apocalyptic, insurance would flow entirely independent of a USD system.
We have written extensively on the topic.
One post is: Is Selling US CDS A Risk-Free Way To Short The Dollar?
do a search for Credit Default Swaps on Zero Hedge for much more on the issue.
So what are you saying, that because it is priced in a different currency and that if "flows entirely independent" that the money actually exists to ensure against it? How is that possible?? Who has that kind of money exactly?
No tears here.
This steroid case has been selling everyone a bill of goods for a long time.
He should have just stuck with the steroids and celluloid.
Anything to divert attention from the great magnum opus default.
This is serious if extra-marital affairs is the centric focus of Californias problems. This is where the resources of the AG are going?
Better start thinking about shorting CXA. It's getting desperate.
diversion? if i remeber my California days (and i think i do) this is "front and center" for a real crisis. i'd be going long California debt on the news myself....
repeat after me everyone: "rowdy Hollywood sets! rowdy Hollywood sets!" Gotta say his ex took care of herself darn well. (don't tell anyone but she's rich and famous, too. shhhhhh.)
Oh come on. When does this all stop. We are making ancient Rome look like a conservative think tank. What, what is that glow I see over the horizon??
He got elected so he could Breed, not Lead.
LOL. as opposed to "I was elected to lead, not to read" per the Simpsons.
"That's the joke." --Ranier Wolfcastle
He shoulda paid Bill Clinton consulting fees on how to get away with it. Out of the state coffers of course.
Cut the true lies telling sperminator some slack, he hasn't cost cali an[sic] thousandth what the corrupt calpers managers have.
Republican family values bullshit
All politicians are corrupted to the bone
Including His Darkness lol
I can't believe i actually voted Republican for years. I told friends in Eastern Europe that we have a lot of people with good intentions here in our govt trying to do the right thing. They looked at me with pity. They knew, and i got sheared.
I was born in Romania and i can tell you those guys can't fool us because we lived in communism and we know exactly what a totalitarian regime is
In my defense, I did refrain from calling that last TD clone an asswipe. Do I get extra credit?
ass wipe is two words unless you are referring to tp, in which case it is one word.
example: That ass wipe needs some asswipe.
nyet on extra credit, points deducted for improper usage.
Was refering to TP.
example: That ass wipe needs some asswipe.
I found this helpful and educational. :D
I suppose the Clinton playbook is a non partisan document. Arnold only wishes a blue dress had been there for him as it was for Bill....to soak up his indiscretion.
USDHUF will not drop further. Dammit.
Keeping 190.5 in, as well as 7 at 189.
Sleep tight, and don't let the Libs bite.
The 25 Rules of Disinformation ...
I seem to recall that there was some controversy in Jerry Brown's first term when he ordered the California National Guard to pile sandbags around his then-girlfriend Linda Ronstadt's Malibu beach house during a period of severe storms.
Brown's failure to marry Ronstadt was taken by some as conclusive proof that he was either crazy or gay. She was a real babe back then and was making more than $10M per year. So even if the marriage had ended after a few years, he would still have ended up a very wealthy man. There were lots of rumors about an impending marriage. And then it was said that Brown had concluded that marrying Ronstadt would cost him the presidency. (Ronstadt had publicly admitted to problems with drug abuse a few years before.) After that, the marriage rumors died away.
As the song goes: "There's a certain kind of fool that likes to hear the sound of his own name..."
I'll cut the gropenfuehrer a little slack on this one. Being married to an aneroxic and Gov of Mexifornia all at once is not fun. Boys just want to have fun.
They can't seem to prosecute billion dollar financial fraud, but hey, stick it in the wrong place and you are going directly to jail.
It didn't bother me that he wasn't that great of a governor or that he cheated on his wife, but really?? Using state funds for his own private enjoyment! Of course I'm sure (unfortunately) there is way more unethical and misappropriation of privileges at the federal level-- suffice it to say think of the worst thing humanly possibly and a politician has done it.
Oh noes, they're cannibals! :>D
re-run/deja vu....... Wild Bill Clinton in Arkansas
No one beats Obozo at the corruption game!
So none of you has ever used the services of a hooker ?
I tell you a secret:
If no one did it, how come it is such a lucrative business ?
Almost all of your representatives, be it governors, state senators, state representatives, federal senators, federal representatives,
they all have sex with hookers, interns, maids and so on.
This is happening every day, even now, as we speak.
I mean you can't have the equivalent of the Roman Empire, which the U.S. is, and then not have a decent amount of decadency.
Some of us are good looking enough that we don't have to pay for it. I wouldn't want to share any woman who can be obtained by anyone with 50 bucks.
I think your statement shows your true colours - hugly man.
Plastic surgery would probably be a good investment for you.
i am happy for you, wallwritings, that you are good looking. but that isn't necessarily what accomplishes the "goal". esp. the second time with the same woman. it's the way you treat her and your touch. just sayin'.
Off topic, but what just happened to PMs in the last few hours? Chinese white knight for EU? Margin hikes? WTF?
I don't know what to say - you elect actors - you get liars - didn't anyone think this was going to happen?
It seems Hollywood has really infected the brains of Californians. I don't care much about where Arnie put his pencil - however I would be more concerned with the giant budget hole and nearly collapsed Cal. economy which the terminator has left in his wake.
Didn't you learn anything from electing Reagan? Failed actors make bad politicians.
Outcome (question for Californinan lawyers)
- fine ?
-bugger all ?
- some combination of the above ?
biggest dead beat dad in history, ows BILLIONS. to jail, to p-test to fed court, fed dead beat dad charges), to state court-where arnold signed dead beat laws last year-- 13 years of no legal child support.
And then it just happened.
I was a younger volunteer just trying to do my part in changing america. I was handing out fliers at the rally. The event was over, but i wanted to give my extra...80% of my paycheck wasnt enough. I wanted to give Obama everything. The future of our nation depended on it. Suddenly,a high ranking campaign staffer walked by me.
"Remember 6 months ago, the raffle to spend 20 minutes with the Future President? Remember John? Well, we picked your number now. He would like to see you now. Dont keep him waiting!"
I started hyperventilating. I couldnt believe it. Millions would kill for this opportunity. 20 minutes with Barack Obama! I could finally tell him my thoughts, have a heart to heart. How Deficiet spending grew the economy, How high Oil Prices brought inovation, and how rich reThuglicans and guns need to be banned.
I started walking with a sly grin, straight towards the Vip section of the bus.
"Come in.. "
I opened the door. Immediately noticing all the ballyhoo strewn around. The smell of ciggarrettes and Cold Pizza. Barack was finishing up a campaign call to a donor he gave me a finger indicating he would only be a second. Then he hung up.
I had rehearsed this conversation a million times. It was now time..
"Mr President...This is a great moment for me. I would just like to start by saying tha....."
"John enough with the formalities...I read your background. Come sit down right here"
I walked over to a section of the couch where he indicated I should sit. The president loosened his tie and toss it over a recliner. The president began walking around the Sofa.
"You see it isnt easy being commander in chief. Sometimes John..I just want to be anonymous again, you know. The hardest thing is this whole facade. Michelle and I...sometimes arent on best of terms"
The president placed his hands on my shoulders
"Sometimes we just arent honest with each other. This whole thing"
The president began rubbing me. It felt good. I was so paralyzed.
I stood up
"I think we need to invest more in t..."
The president forced me back down.
"John I dont think you understand..."
"Shhhh" Obama said walking around the couch.
"Let me give you something you will never forget"
The president unzipped his pant. A huge cock came out. Not just any cock....A massive floptacular black snake.
Now Im not gay..but i felt obliged. The president needed me and I was here for him. I picked the meaty snake up. Smacked it against my cheaks. I looked up.
"Thats it...stick it down in there. Its ok. Hope and Change Johhny. How bad do you really want it?" The president said quietly.
"Mrrrrw..Mrwwwwwrrr...mmmmrrrr......Prrrrrdwrrdnnnnt" I said with a mouthful
I tried my best to fit the entire member. It was too large. I continued my best. Gagging at times. Suddenly the president withdrew his member. A huge load of hot liquid lava flew over my face. Blinded...The president zipped up his pants and handed me a dirty pair of his underwear.
" I hope it was worth it jonny" He said as he lit a ciggarrette"
I was saddened..
"Mr president..But I still have 12 minutes"
He looked down...Flicked and ash. Nodded and said
"I know Johny...I know"
"See you soon"
At least he got to rollover the minutes.
Politicians and the covering up of side action, the list is endless from the beginning of time
what is this bacon eater , fantasy time?
don't hold your breath, Tyler. the funds needed to uncover the whole stuff will be vastly more than what may be saved by claiming them back from Arnie. And then again you could start an investigation into the life of probably every 2nd or 3rd high ranking politician or state official throughout the US of A and the entire world.
I couldn't care less. Searching for the pennies and being ignorant towards the Billions and gazillions in wasted money.
AFFAIR? SINGULAR? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? THE FUCKING NUT HAS ATLEAST 5 OTHER BASTARDS RUNNING AROUND HERE READING THIS POST!!! AND THESE FUCKS ARE FOR PRO=LIFE??? ABORT THE FUCKING BASTARDS THAT ARNIE SHOT OUT WHILE LYING....
Austria, while one of the most georgeous places on earth, spews out the worst of man-kind. Period.
Arnie is sick. Maria is a dope and you just have to laugh in her face. What a maroon.
Yeah Arnie...MAKE ANOTHER MOVIE YOU SICK FUCK.
