"Suck it in and cope, buddy. Suck it in and cope.’”
so will say the Reaper as Charlie takes his last inhale.
well said-I got a good laugh out of that!
The Reaper can't come quick enough for him and his partner in crime.
It is statements like these issuing forth from Charlie that make me wish I could punch people through the internet.
Please, someone draft the Inter-PUNCH protocol, stat!
Sumbitch didn't even offer us any cake
Very funny, Mr. Tyler. :)
Charlie Munger, have you lost your mind? You certainly have lost touch with the reality facing nearly everyone but your elite class.
We, the people, have been "sucking it in" for the last couple of years. And because we have, at the point of the government gun, been sentenced to years of tax servitude in order for you to ensure your viability or bail your ass out, please allow me to warn you that there are few things more incendiary than a wealthy bastard and recipient of our tax donations, attempting to boost our morale with an austerity play.
But we don't get mad, we just sell our BRK.
Perhaps I can fulfill my role as one of the resident reminders of human behavior here at good 'ole ZH to help identify what is occurring.
What do deathbed confessions (which are leveraged in a quite excellent fashion by certain, ahem, "non-profit" organizations), Greenspan's recent admissions, and now (tossed salad) Munger Charlie have in common?
Guilt, and the driving need/desire to attempt to come clean in order to have a clear conscience as one reaches the inevitable end-of-the-line. Try this on for size:
Riddle me this - as the crisis continues to unfold with no respite, and in fact begins to accelerate as all vestiges of bullshit are whipped away by brute force, will we begin to see (a) more, or (b) less confessions and revelations of the truth, either directly or via pseudonymous proxies?
I would argue (a). While those still ensconced within official circles will try and maintain (b), human nature is still too strong and will overpower these puny attempts as individuals go 'rogue' and spill the beans.
Agreed.....the truth wants to be found.
Perhaps I'm a little slow on the uptake, but let me make an attempt at what you are saying:
If you are old as dirt and on your deathbed, like Charlie Munger, the confessions are not only brutal but more of a "stick that in your poorhouse, biatches" tone. For why not? You're almost six feet under anyway.
If you are younger-- and you still want to live a life without fear of hanging (or worse)-- you set the tone of your confessions on the side of the poor huddled masses. You are surprised and shocked you participated in the shell game-- becuase you didn't think it was a shell game. You either move to the deep woods of Northern Califionia and get a plot near Neal Kashkari-- or you move to Paraguay and live among the Bushes when the time comes. Somehow, Alan Greenspan thinks he has time to live-- or he would have been a heckuva lot more brutal.
Well said indeed ... My sentiments were similar when listening to our former President, Mr. Clinton last week on the Daily Show last week.
In case you missed the 2-part interview ==>
"We, the people, have been "sucking it in" for the last couple of years."
With stagnant wages, a lot of people ahve been sucking it in for a decade or more now. I wonder if Mr. Munger's income was stagnant over the last ten years.
Sorry, you're right, and I was too short in my timeline.
Marie Antoinette also had similar things to say to the poor before the French Revolution!
We can only hope that the peasants are running out of patience with the wealthy elite. It certainly appears that the aristocrats have decided that the workers are no longer a danger to them, so they can say any damn thing they want to.
Seriously! Munger saying that his life's been harder since this all happened--while having more than $1 billion in personal wealth.
Dear Real IRA, we heard about your "banker relief" program in Ireland. Do you guys work in America too?
Mr. Munger, we know where you live.
I'm pretty sure she didn't actually utter the "Let them eat cake" line. It may well have been the sentiment of the oligarchs of that time.
she did say this line, but it was not intended that way. "cake" was very common and cheap (used alot to line pantries) so she ignorantly suggested that they could eat this source.
fuckin msm always creating spin
At least Marie offered food. Although junk food. Although back then there were no artifical colors, preservatives and Monsanto the death angel didn’t exist. So yeh, she offers basically health food and went headless. Imagine if your average ahole on the street were to actually wake up from Charlie’s slap and really suck it in.
Suck it in and cope ...bitchez!
Breaking legs for $500.00 , Alex...
Better yet, put Munger, Biden, and FLOTUS together on live television for 30 minutes on a Thursday night on an empty stage (except for some bottles of Gin, Rolling Rock, and Midol) with 3 mics . Run only GM and Ally Bank commercials. I would guarantee revolution before the weekend.
What fucking jack ass.
you have a gift of being able to get right to the heart of the matter!
Whats the deal with the stimulus tomorrow? Anyone think we are due for a pause?
I pray to Jesus this guy will die soon in the most horrible and painful and lengthy fashion possible.
He'll get his. We all square up at the end i think.
Spot on. I've always thought of death as the great equalizer.
Had I been there, I'd have had a question for the audience:
Anybody want to join me in taking this asshole out back and beating the shit out of him?
Didn't a young Jesus bitch-slap greed when it crossed the common good but didn't have a problem with interest/investments/PE Ratios and HFT?
Charlie Munger provides only the most recent example of why we should bring back public flogging and hanging. I hope your final days are spent in gut wrenching agony Charlie and that they last a long, long time. 99 weeks should just about do it.
I think Charlie Munger's blunt approach to decribing the financial crisis is refreshing.
Now where is that shovel I intended on using?
Munger jumped the shark, Buffett did a long time ago.
Buffet made it the honest way. Wink wink.
"It ain't me. I ain't me. I ain't no senators son!"
But I might be a congressman's son or be best buddies with that guy.
Someone needs to whack Charlie on the head with a bag of nickels; maybe that would bring him back into the real world with the rest of us.
How'd that sentiment work out for the elites in early-1790's France - eh, Chuck?
And we're better armed.
Then he shat on the carpet, stole the salt and pepper shakers from his table, and hightailed it for the limo.
Funny stuff ITG. Thanks for the laugh. Time for a diaper change.
Thank you Tyler, I've been saying it for years, Buffett and Munger are no more than tax evading credit riders.
1) 50% draw down
2) 6th largest TARP recipient
Reminds one of complaining farmers and farm subsidies....
Some people feel more ENTITLED than others....
Fuck this crusty, old asshole and the Becky Quick he rode in on.
From Old Bag to D-Bag in less than a decade...
I am ready to move from this country while we still have the cash...
Munger telegraphs the response from the oligarchs.
Charlie just qualified for biggest douche in the universe
I won't shed a tear when the Grim Reaper comes for this parasitic crustacean...
Caught this earlier in the day with the sound off on the tv.... Can someone teach these billionaire's to sit up straight in a chair? Their body language tells a tale all on its own, not that I'm keen to "hate" extremely rich people but that to the degree they are materially possessed they appear for the most part to be somewhat physcially dis possessed -- always bending around -- angled -- etc. He scared me at sight within .02 seconds and indeed 50 years from now history books will show what a ruinous affair such a blown out Creditor vs Debtor Paradigm many of these birds perpetuate. Will take at least a couple generations to work out this genetic greed currently atop the heap on our Planet, but it will come...
