The Heroin Addicts Are Out, And They Are MAD, Warn Of "Another Catastrophic Financial Crisis"

Tyler Durden's picture


Today's dose of Mutual Assured Destruction brought to you by Reuters:

  • Chairman of US Treasury borrowing advisory committee tells Geithner in letter there is an "urgent need" to raise debt limit
  • TBAC says any delay in Treasury on making interest, principal payments could trigger "another catastrophic financial crisis"

Apparently, we now have at most 3 weeks before America, if the TBAC is correct, launches a suicidal nuclear attack on itself. Because as you recall the world ended when the Fed released its uber top secret classified docs.

Boehner says “Lazy Un-Employed Scumbags are to Blame for the Recession” I am paraphrasing a lil.

Boehner: "Can't pay your student loan? Face it your parents were lazy and you couldn't afford college. The world needs ditch diggers and you were born into a family of them. Can't pay your mortgage? Your house was too expensive and you couldn't afford it. Your taxes going up too much? That's what you get for electing a democrat president. Never had a job after you got a degree? You learned nothing in school and you're lazy. I didn't get to be a congressman by watching jersey shore or playing xbox. You think there's no jobs for you? There used to be. There was when I was your age. You don't have fee time because you have to work all days of the week for 16 hours a day and you don't get paid hourly? Thank the unions. They made decent jobs so out of price range of the average American company that they can't hire anymore people and the works' gotta get done. These unions... I tell you they won't be happy till no one in America has a job. And health care? Don't get me started on health care- doctors study their entire lives and they barely make enough to live and yet Obama, who had his entire life handed to him on a silver plate wants to cut their pay. You know that's gonna do? Increase costs- the average persons going to have to work even harder just to see a doctor. "


Taibbi: "With mounting unemployment what do you think is the possibility that we'll see an Egyptian style uprising of the youth? Should we be worried?"

Boehner: "It's not going to happen in the US. The kids here are too fat, too lazy, to addicted to TV, fast food, cheap credit, and facebook. I have news for you- there are plenty of jobs out there- the unemployed don't want them. Today's college student feels entitled to make at least $24 right after college. When they find out they can collect unemployment they would rather do that. You know the average college educated unemployed person is collecting $60k a year? The CATO institute did a study- and I mean, you and me we're hard workers we could just sit around and live, but these kids today- that's all they've been doing their entire lives. I'm not worried for this country- there are a few of them who actually want to work, take Mark Zucker(sic). You don't build a site like facebook out of thin air- it takes talent and hard work. I went to a community college and all I saw were people sitting in front of computers typing away, their eyes were fixed. Probably just facebooking away."



Boner says that the young ones are to, too busy facebooking to care to participate in a "Day of Rage" here in the U.S.! I say Popiecock!

here is some food for thought..

Michigan, Police have been downloading info from cell phones during stops since 2006!

Military Helicopter Exercise startles Miami residents (YouTube Video) BlackHawks flying downtown Miami at Night. (why do they only practice with the BlackHawk Evac's from the Bank of America Building?

Is something happening soon that would require a full on evac from the B or A Building? seems fishy..

Here's my latest scenario. They pull out the loyal nwo soliders from the normals just by knowing who's a complete psycho and who's not. They start them up on gassing people in denver and fema camps. They pull all the US's friend or foe codes. Ramp china up to mow thourgh the us forces like they were nothing. They already got them in demoalization training in afghanistan. Use chinese high power transmitters to take over operations of all the predator drones. Use special chinese chips they smuggled into the defense industry to screw up our gear.

China comes rushing in finds all these death camps becomes the new heros. It goes from UK and israel secretly pulling the strings on USA but since we have lost our credibility they need a new hero state to work under. Snuggle in at china turn us into the new germany. Move bunch global assholes into the new ghost towns in china. China goes from not fighting many wars to constantly being at war just like US. Keep pushing till afghanistan fallls, pakistan falls, set up shop in Iran, and libya.

That's the game plan from what I figured out. There is no 2012 deadline that falsly leads people to conclude that it's an epoch over game changer. They will keep doing the same shit they always have been doing till it's finished and they got their slave planet.

He's must be mentally unbalanced.  There's no other explanation for the above as well as some of the other comments he made.

I don't think his district is gonna tolerate him any longer when they read what Taibbi is going to print.

 "The letter raised six concerns: that foreign investors could reduce their Treasury purchases on a permanent basis or even sell some holdings.."

So, the message is, that unless the US continues to spend itself into oblivion, foreigners are going to stop lending the money?

Geithner has told them to write a threatening letter, and they put something like this in just to show how stupid they think the politicians are.

It's clearly where Greece went wrong - they would have got much better yields if only they'd asked for more money!

And the dollar by mid summer should be barely clinging to 67 or so as well. Good luck.

When China monetises its USD currency reserves into other currency to tune of 2 T'll be time to watch the face of the FED mandarins...they will all be wearing black trousers, have pig-tailed, bi-strand hair and beady eyes, with paper thin mustaches...what a sight that will be!

"Dear Chairman Wing Ding mega-Dong, my son would like to apply for BS course in economics in that great university of Yin-Yang Institute of Broke-back (chinese version) Mountain, which Chairman Mao left as indelible testimony of socialistic triumph to your Great middle kingdom, now center of universe. I would personally be honored to come lecture in this venerable institute's culinary advanced class section on the novel subject of how to make a new, personally patented brand of chop-suey out of IQ 145 calibre WASP juicy testicle meat, Ivy league DNA guaranteed, that I will provide as a unique one-time technology transfer incentive from my very own "cook book for mega crooks", specially custom concocted from voluntary suicidal staff originating in my ex-employer's offices. Who have kindly bequeathed to me, their undying chief, their left-over, unused prime organs, as they jumped out of their multi storeyed windows. It should do wonders in instilling into the intellects of your future uber-students the spirit of enterprise so cherished in these true american halls of excellence that have made my great ex-country what you aspire to become!"

Yours truly, FED Chairman (ex), now free culinary agent for a fee payable in PMs at your convenience to my own non federally held JPM vaults.

PS : Needless to say I take full responsibility for having concocted this rant as poetic diatribe not attributable to anyone but myself with no other aim than to contribute to "mutual derision and assured destruction" as the caption so aptly mentions.

The only problem with nuking Wall Street is that somehow the the wealthy would be notified in advance, sold their overpriced apartments, dumped all their assets and be safely on their private planes to Brazil...

The creditability of the U.S. govt and soon the reserve currency status for the dollar are dropping rapidly. Every other major country must be burning the midnite oil in trying to figure out the best escape plan out of the delusional dollar while behind the scenes Suicide Ben and company are twisting arms and locking the doors to keep their abused prisoners from escaping the Fed's insane asylum.

'Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the U.S. will never embrace a strategy to try to weaken the dollar for global trade advantage.'

Now these poor babies at the Fed know how it feels to be a Chinese holder of UST. 

We should just hand them a newly created worthless sovereign paper with a picture of the national middle finger bird and a lot of zeros on it. It will have no debt ceilings or limits so they are welcome to as much of it as they want.

Some people got worked up about the possibility that national parks would be closed in a government shut down.  I can only imagine the looks on their faces when the national parks are auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Since the Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committe is owned by JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs (And SIFMA is spread among the banksters), one could surmise that is their preferred strategy of the month?

Just say no to increasing the debt ceiling and let's get this over with. Make a list of whoever votes in favor of increasing the debt ceiling, and circulate it! This is like a bankrupt house calling the bank for higher credit card limits! No!!!
