Financial crisis investigation cost per point drop over 15 minutes = $11,429
9-11 investigation cost per person killed = $5,321
Productivity is a bitch.
Off topic - but GW, I must ask why is the solution to a debt bubble always for regular people to work more for less, or just plain have no work and starve ALONG WITH giving banks all the money they want...why isn't the solution the opposite...
Greece is excellent example..media keeps saying "you workers were getting way too much vacation and we didn't tax the rich at all: so now you must work harder, so you can pay the interest on all the money we must give rich bankers????"
Its like a doctor telling you, the parasite is making you ill, nearly killing you, it harms you and releases toxins when you try to remove, so you should be nicer to it, feed it more so it can stay comfortable...
Maybe because work is a functional of resources, many available resources, much available work.
In times the flow rate of resources is diminishing, work has to be decreased. Meanwhile, rent is priviledged.
The parasite is all knowing and wise and it is there to protect you.
I have never had sexual relations with........
GW - you are officially my favorite ZH poster...although Reggie have you a run for your money...tho I suppose this dog's endorsement is not necessary a good thing..
$730 million in fees and expenses so far jus for one restructuring case(in case you r wandering..it's no other than you fav. LehmanBrothers...) n 8m for this big mess,,,,hmm no wander gov. knows best haha,,,
$30 million on Lewinsky blow jobs was money well spent... I hope Kenneth Starr and Congress learned how...
For the $30 million we got to learn what the definition of "is" is and we got Monica to admit under oath "Here's cum in your eye."
What the hell ever did happen to the blue dress anyway. Where is the shot heard round the world? Parked in a freezer somewhere? Smithsonian? Hillary left it on the coffee table and it disappeared?
"What the hell ever did happen to the blue dress anyway."
Hillary Wrapped It Around a Whoopin' StickAnd Bubba Clinton has had nothing but heart problems (heart surgery...not heart love) running from his whoopin' ever since.
One question Bubba Clinton:
"How's that workin' out for you?"
I think they made it into a tie for the congressional chaplain
Yeah, so what?
The Lehman lawyers got 700,000,000 more for their jobbing of the shareholders.
Thanks to GW for posting this. When Alan Greenspan had finished his testimony and Chairman Phil Angelides shamelessly announced that his performance was "lights out," I wanted to throw up in disgust and lost all hope for any honest results. Wonder how panel member Brooksley Born felt about that.
The Banksters learned their lessons well from the Pecora Commission subpoenas used in the grilling of Morgan, Whitney, Mitchell, and other banksters.
They pay off the CONgressbastards early.
if you put it in real dollars the discrepancies are even greater. there is absolutely no interest in investigating this matter...8m usd isn't even interest on the federal debt for an hour.
i wish someone would investigation obama's nation of birth and his current indonesian citizenship.
true that, 5 months for a "terrorist attack", less than a week for a money shot, sounds about right
If I recall correctly, it was 5 months before the 911 commish got started. Lewinsky took less than a week!
Alien invasion. $1
+1 gray dollar
Loyd Blankfein farts 8mm into Obama's coffee every morning.
I have seen the monster and he is me.
Great ID. I guess you don't need to concern yourself with Diebold EPROMs.
Actually only 2% or so... according to National Geographic anyway.
This story that broke last week has had everybody from Evangelical Christians to racial supremicists up in arms. Turns out the only people on the planet who are 100% Homo sapiens (human) are those of African decent...
(The rest of us better just keep quiet about this one... )
And paybacks are a bitch! ...
So Neanderthals had vaginas and were warm.
Was there ever really a question about this?
Has anyone ever been surprised by what a human male will stick his dick in?
Must have been shortly after they invented alcohol...
How many beers Rusty... how many beers...
Well. She looks like she's in good shape. I like mine a little hippy and hairy. She probably smells like a Moroccan village, but hell I imagine everybody did back then.
You never know, nailing a Neanderthal was probably like being in a washing machine on the heavy duty cycle.
You probably thought you were going to die, came out dizzy, sore, and wet, but then you probably couldn't stop thinking about getting back in there, ya know?
Rusty, I nearly pissed myself I laughed so hard.
Russian women have balls! Who knew.
I only recognized 2 words. "Dork" and "Widow". Both made sense.
This video actually shows her gearing up!
What was the topic of the post again?
Rusty Rusty Rusty... I am clearly not worthy of my XY chromosomes...
ah hem...I'm not a Homo sapien, I am a Hetero sapien. I knew Neanderthals had bred with the Afreeken Homos cuz I have that tell tale ridge above my eye brow. Gotta pack a bowl Jack bauer is about to torture the Russian.
Brilliant idea Bulletman... bongs away!
(I'm pretty sure I'm a Hetero sapien too... in a Felix domesticus kinda way that is!)
Is this $8m classified as a stimulus?
Or is it a bail-out for its likely recipients? ie: 'struggling' Keynesian economists
it really doesn't cost all that much to put on a show for the peasantry....small staff to ensure that the media treats the story properly; a booker to get a few senators and congressmen air time; and a little bit to get a few inept computer people in to "examine the records".....
along with the lawyers to write the "final report" and protect the politicians....actually, that is probably the most expensive part of the operation.
175 million big ones to drop an O ring in a glass of ice water. Sounds about right...
and they knew it was the problem before the shuttle blew up...no investigation needed....
This says a lot. On another note, does it really cost 175 million to find out what went wrong in the challenger disaster? Who is pocketing this money? 30M investigating the monica scandal to what end? What did this accomplish and what did it prevent? Cigar abuse? Fucking ridiculous.
Heh. There was a lot of DNA research involved.
Limited scope and question charade. They have the answers and wouldn't want any of their names showing up.
Investigations are nothing more than web searches interspersed with cspan theatrics.
True, but $8 Mil is no where near enough. There are so many porn sites to investigate.
VH1 for really ugly people who won't sleep with Brett Michaels?
Maybe we are just getting more efficient at getting to the bottom of things?
