What is it with you? How long have you been working with the English language?

About 45 years. What is your excuse?

Put this in every classroom.

This should be mandatory reading to every student in America.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

You and I don't control America's classrooms. Thus this type of financial information will never see the inside of a public school classroom, at least not in this format and with this editorial comment.

The new control system is strangely similar to the old control system.

Which thru the miracle of extrapolation is strangely similar to the older control system which is identical to the oldest control system.  The Devine Comedy #2.  Which begs the question: which level are we currently on.  I'm sure I see the Styx in the rearview mirror.

"The Devine Comedy #2."

Is that the SNL skit/takeoff on Iron Chef where they take that cloaca-thingie out of Jumbo Shrimp?

bob_dabolina's picture

I guess at this point it doesn't even matter.

Protecting yourself through preparedness is paramount.

I'd rather be over prepared then under prepared.

Ya gotta love that ole sayin', I'd rather be two years early than one day late.   LMFAOWROTF.

 Actually, I was two years early; I bought by base of silver bullion at  $6.53; and had to wait while it made incredible lows at 4.35; the pain is all gone now, tho.

cossack55's picture

Close. I was 40 years early when paying 10 cents for Mercury dimes in 1963.  Glad I saved them.  Who would ever have thunk that a hobby (other than gun collecting) may become life-preserving.

And yet people wonder why some people are so bent on destroying the grip of the teacher's unions on the school systems.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I don't understand. Are you saying the teacher's union determines the curriculum in the classroom? Or are you saying some people are trying to remove any outside influences on the classroom? Or something else?

Things that go bump's picture

Apparently, the State of Texas, because of its size, determines the curriculum in the classroom, or at least what books are used, not only for Texas, but for the entire country.

i noticed that, as well. what if up^ with this governing body. damn the woman are always, BUTCH†

I'm sure Steve LIESman and the CNBS crew are all aware of this and ready to debate its content...

Steve LIESman is much too busy constantly kissing Bernanke's ass to be bothered to notice much of anything.

It might find its way into a classroom under "history".

IQ 145's picture

 No. Field Marshall Goering on being told he would be judged by history, "History! History is written by the winners!" Only a glorious and seamless progression to the "present" wonderfulness will be allowed.

The winner in this case will the limits of mathmatics. Infinate growth with finate resources will always lose.

My 11th grader was telling me last night that they have not read one single book by Orwell...

...not Animal Farm...

...not 1984...

...not even mentioned in his public school education.  He has friends who are Seniors in regular and AP English and...

...ZERO Orwell.

I wonder if they burned the books by him they might have had in the library?


New_Meat's picture

and yet, late '60s, early '70s, Animal Farm was all the rage.  Then 1984 and Huxley.

I mutter "four legs good, two legs bad," and get strange looks from my son.

You just like that saying because you're a four legged porker. Talk about bias. :>)

An uproar of voices was coming from the farmhouse. They rushed back and looked through the window again. Yes, a violent quarrel was in progress. There were shoutings, bangings on the table, sharp suspicious glances, furious denials.


The source of the trouble appeared to be that Napoleon and Mr. Pilkington had each played an ace of spades simultaneously.


Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

I am a product of South California public education, having graduated it in 2001. They had every English class but the honors read Brave New World in the tenth grade. Honors got to read Animal Farm in ninth grade, at least. Not sure how it is going these days.

Hollywood is about to make Brave New World for theater-going audiences in the near future.

Probably with all their 3D bullshit gimmicks too.

They are also going to re-do They Live.

Not sure how much more in-our-faces with this they can get.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

It's long past the point where people can simply be shown what's really going on and they will understand it and embody it. The programing and conditioning has been so thoroughly assimilated that the average person will rationalize away anything contrary to the world as they have been told it is constructed.

One piece of contrary information in a sea of propaganda and disinformation repeated endlessly day after day just won't penetrate. Sure people understand that's something is wrong. But given the choice between looking into the abyss or allowing yourself to float back into another few hours of mindless bliss, few will choose the path of emotional pain.

Either we begin our own process of deprogramming starting with those around us and our loved ones or we prepare for great dislocation and upheaval. The idea that I see around ZH of buying PMs and filling the storm cellar with the basics and hunkering down is just another form of self delusion. One man cannot withstand an assault from his own community let alone the county, state or nation. Either we begin to educate our communities now or we will be over run by those very same communities.

Do we have teachers able to explain allegory in the classics?

We are the only teachers left RR. The buck must stop here with us or it ain't stopping until the elevator crashes at the B4 level.

Going down?

My first reaction : Probably because he wasn't an asshole.

A complete lack of morality and ethics can facilitate the appropriation of wealth from others that posesse them, unfortunately.

Hell on Earth is the reward for the malfeasant; though it does take a little time to present itself.

 11th. graders who can read ? Wow, that's impressive.

LibertyIn2010's picture

Buy Orwell and Huxley paperbacks with cash sense making it easier for Big Brother to know who's educating themselves.

Real Estate Geek's picture

But it was so much easier to have 1984 downloaded to my Kindle.

That's strange . . . now I can't find it. 


LukeWorm's picture

... for those who can read.


bob_dabolina's picture

I thought about that after I commented.

The few who can read won't understand, and the few who understand will know there is nothing that can be done to prevent what we are going to see in the coming years.

In this regard I guess I can understand Bernanke. If he raises rates we are dead, if he prints money we are dead (it will just take longer) All he can really do is have good bed side manner by lying and saying everything is A ok. There is nothing else I can think of to justify his behavior.

They should make em watch Inside Job too.


I remember back in econ 101 we learned how to calculate the GDP by filling in a pre algebra equation with made up numbers.

College is such a fucken racket these days.

Bernanke XVI has a cake index that is off the charts.

One thing that allot of inflationists even get wrong is that SOME ASSET PRICES FALL DURING HYPERIFLATION.

House prices will fall from 3 or 400,000 to 50 or 60,000 because people will sell anything to get money to buy essentials like food and energy. Its not like everyone is a neighbourhood short on essentials can just sell their 400,000 dollar house and buy all the gas and food they want, it doesn't work that way.

Cars, motorcycles, boats, motorhomes, houses, TVs, cloths, pretty much every non esenctial thing will fall in value during a hyperinflation.
