@ IdioT

RIP indeed Mark Haines.  I just wrote a small piece about him at my new blog. Because I use my *real name* at my blog, I do not post the link here. Want to see it?  Send me an email (gmail), prove who you are and that you will decent and discrete.  15 ZH-ers have passed the test.

A rolling bearing salesman has a blog where he uses his real name but you want to keep it secret? So you have this litmus and you found 15 zh-ers that actually give a fuck. I wonder how many of those are federal agents.   I promise to be "decent" so is your address dumbass

I regret that I have to decline to send you the link.  You are the first.

I DO like your stuff here at ZH, and your cool name and avatar.

My blog is not the Fight Club.  It is open to everyone on my email Joke List and everyone at my Facebook account.

The 15 ZH-ers who have contacted me have all been very polite and in almost cases rather kind.  I am not worried about federal agents because I have not done anything illegal, well, not much!

I do not sell bearings.  I help my in-laws (in Peru) buy them.

Hung pung what happened to your "sense Of humor? I should play coy cause I think your musings in blog form might be the FUCKING MOST USELESS INFO available but I'm sure it would provide non-stop comedy. Six months ago you told me " I am just a 57 year old rolling bearing salesman" I guess, I guess, I guess I didnt know. Either way please reconsider I promise to be "decent". Off topic can your peruvian inlaws hook a nigger up with a "speed bump"? ask me for my e-mail

Wow, quite the hate for the contrarian opinion.  Mr. Haines is probably grateful that he no longer has to spend his days being surrounded by absolute idiots spewing nothing but insane rantings that make syphillitic chimps seem rational.

But, if his only claim to fame is being the guy that asked the hard questions then, really, fuck him.  He was still part of an organization that serves no other purpose than to cover for the crimes of the banking oligopoly.  He's complicit.

He was an avid grower of tomatoes and had many different varieties that he cross-pollinated.  Can't fault a fella for that I suppose.   I will not, however, miss his atrocious comb-over.

Here is one of his more typical moments:

and this:

He did not see the Twin Towers collapsing as "accidental"!

I watched it at times because it is an excellent source of spin that creates the facade of a functional market.

Or... attempts to.

Between Liesman and Pisani, I'm informed of exactly what flavor of BS TPTB are selling that day. Add in a little Hilsenrath, and it's like a NY Fed puppet suddenly come to life.

It's best watched on a DVR though, that way you can avoid their dueling stock-pumper segments.

RIP, Mark.

Let's be clear. It's not about 'liking' you or your comments. It's about time and place. It's about respect. That thin line between right and wrong that, for some unknown reason, you decided to cross when you got out of bed this morning. Your so-called years of experience have taught you little. You are a man of years, not a man of experience. Haines, on the otherhand, was a man of REAL experience. A professional. The road Mark took (and I hope I've taken) is one of being blessed of life and respected in death.

Go away. This isn't your time OR your place. Go crap on another post. Turn off your computer, step outside, take a breath of air, and realize that it's just not about you today, your opinion or how hateful you can be.

As well as very anti-barbarous-relic. He didn't like new government spending, yet always capitulated that they "had to do something!". Even on TARP.

He was good at working an opposing view into acceptance it. Seems his lawyer skills served him (and his bosses) well.

I always liked how he would call BS when he knew something wasn't right or misleading.  Gonna miss him...

Sorry - but questioning the mass media and finding out what the politicians/rich/powerful are doing behind the scenes doesn't mean ZH readers are a bunch of conspiracy-theory nuts.

He was skeptical and I appreciate that.

His last advise to us may have been, "watch the stress level guys."

The video clip above is long and boring, but worth it at the end when Frank gets combative...

Haines says, "Fine, goodbye sir..." and Frank goes away.

Thanks for sharing the link Lizzy.  I turned on the TV at about 9:15 - 9:30 that morning after the South Tower had been hit.

Amazing how reserved and careful his reaction was on this video.  He could not bring himself to say there was a fire in the building despite all the smoke.  A great example of his professionalism as a reporter.

This is exactly where I was -- watching this very station.   I was stunned as the morning progressed.   I also remember where and I was and what I was doing when Kennedy was shot.   Two events that will remain forever in my memory.   Thanks for posting the video.

Watch at 5 min 30 sec and hear Haines be rather incredulous that this is "accidental"

I always noticed that whenever Peter Schiff appeared on CNBC with Haynes 'n Burnett he received the 'Cnbc Style' salesman treatment.

Peter was frequently interrupted,ridiculed,etc...geez they never let that poor guy finish a mere sentence remember?

Remorse?......... jus' a little i guess.

Actually, I always though he was rather fond of precious metals, and knew the day would come that may signal the end of $ tenure. He kept it to himself, though.
