    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

Wow....see???  It is happening now!!!  Get ready America!!!  Get your pitchforks ready America!  They stabbed your currentsea in the back, long long ago, and now they are fleeing the carcuss; they ate it all.

Who's next, LawRench?  and then???

Look, it is really simple.  Taxes are not adding up because there is no growth.  As a simple metric use NAFTA + Peak Oil.  Now look at the budget, with Fannie and Freddie (thank you Orzog, you fascist fool!) and know there is no way to raise interest rates due to, yes, the said massive debt.  America has been in a nose dive for years, and we went into a death spiral when they told everybody (they told you!!!) that the economy was doomed in '08.

The people running the country are idiots!  Listen to them speak!!!  You know why they are idiots?  You know how it is obvious?  BECAUSE THEY LACK FORESIGHT!  AND FORESIGHT IS THE SHAMAN'S JOB!  Oh, and they lie.  They lie with every damn word.

I don't think they are idiots, they are simply looking out for number 1... what else can they care about. If that is the case, they are doing good running away with a lot of money.

Yeah... this is pretty much along the lines of Sheila Bair's and Alan Greenspan's "come to Jesus" moments.

People that know are covering their tracks.  If Orszag is smart, he would be buying a private spread in Paraguay.  A Goldman assignment would be tantamount to suicide.

Rahmbo is also leaving.


Obama is apparently too "idealistic" for him.

President Biden shortly after the November elections. He's just unpopular and buffoonish enough to take the fall for the end.

Someone very stupid in 2012. Palin? Huckabee? Carrot Top?

Or Petraeus in an Abrams?

word. if the rest of america was as resource rich as alaska, we'd be a long way towards solving some big budget problems. palin couldnt even handle being the governor of alaska, let alone the infinitely more fucked up world of federal and international govt policy. obama blew it, no doubt, but palin is not the answer, at least not in the way most people think.

Newsflash: The rest of the United States IS resource rich.  The Interior and the EPA just won't let private owners develop it.  Then the National Parks Service is protecting all that land the Rockefellers "donated" to the Feds.

double word...Sarah Palin will bail on conservatives once she's elected.  And her unmarried daughter will marry the best friend of Chelsea Clinton's beau at Goldman Sachs.  Palin already endorsed Meg Whitman, who (now that she won the GOP primary) is backpedalling on immigration in CA so fast she's practically moonwalking. 

Ron Paul is the only one who might could save us, and he can't win.  We R Screwed.

You may have a bit of a point on the source of the benefits.  However, a bigger point is that whatever the resources, are the entire population gets the money.

Suppose everyone in the US got a check from GOM oil development or minerals in New Mexico?  would there be a different evaluation of the developments?

Then you would get bullshit that you have in Iran. If the profits from exploration are socialized, the equipment breaks down, you under-invest in exploration, and so on.

On land, companies DO provide huge checks to lease and buy land from existing inhabitants. The gulf is socialized, so BP just has to bribe the government to get what they want.

Fuck n' A!

You probably don't have racing strips on yours, though.  I do. They are red.  They were painted by a top-ranked painter in Nashville.  Took him 9 days.  

If Palin gets elected in 2012, I'm gonna offer to drive her around Washington in my '95 Z28 droptop.  She can sit on the back trunk like my prom queen. 

Return America to its rightful owners!
