It's a good thing I'm not a PhD.

I can say this without carrying any intellectual baggage.

Who the fuck thinks the good old USA is a "AAA" credit?

Martin Sullivan? Joe Cassano? Dick Fuld? Christopher Cox?

Cramer? Stan O'Neal? Bob Rubin? Chucky Prince? Screwless Ken Lewis?

Bernie the Ponzi Pope?

Who told them that? Suntangelo Mozillo?


We are the biggest bloated sovereign debt pig ever to legally set foot on planet Ponzi.

We are the quintessential Hyman Minsky case study on ubersteroids.

We have to keep raising the debt ceiling to make good on our obscene interest payments and no one has any clue how we are to pull out of the lasciviously leveraged spiral of STD (stupidly trillionized debt) death.

Remember those condo flippers using credit cards and HELOCs to pay interest on their mortgages? That's us, the United Debts of Amerika.

Our two pronged business model actually consists of three prongs (i) some No Doc pipe dream about how organic growth will magically reoccur in the wonderfully engineered kleptofraudtocracy affectionately referred to by some Neo-Keynesian douche weasels as the domestic economy, (ii) their assets (i.e. not you stupid) will magically appreciate as Bozo sprinkles Keynesian poof dust all over over Diamond Jamie Madoff's  Gucci wallet and Fraud Blankslime's buff shined forehead and (iii) your savings will magically denude as the dollar is endlessly groped by theoretically flaccid PhD printophiles with scraggly beards.

Just who is ostensibly in charge here?...There they are...

They're sitting in a sinking lifeboat in an angry sea of Chinese IOUs arguing over who gets to drink the last drop of Bilderberg bilge piss and eat the last soggy debt cracker.

God help us all if this is the best we can come up with.

Tell me friends, relatives, brothers and you believe in the "POWER OF O"?

TONTO: Hmm, Kimosabe, me no think this sky talking debt turkey can pay back what he owes...

RON PAUL: No Shit Tonto!

Hillarious, Ben and his new mini gyro.

Still can't help thinking that globalization was/is the cause.

A few billionaires got rich as hell, we are screwed.

By the way, nice work as usual, you're spoiling us.  Glad you threw in some tea-baggers in your lifeboat of morons.

And I thought Triple 000 breaks the Buck.

This has got to be one of your best yet.

The Lifeboat, mini-helicopter, head in a basket, -

Great incisive, biting humor.

Thank you WB7!

'THE OBAMA EXPRESS' ...a train wreck ;)


..i've just got my breath back (from laughing so much) enough to type... so funny Banzai ;)))

Well I come from Afro-O-Bama with my Ben-jo on my pea.

Love the AfrObama. He should make that his campaign poster this time around.

I thought I recognized "Ne-O" from the Matrix posters.



Zero Govt's picture

no it's 'O-bamO' from the Marxists

One way to kill the fractional reserve lending beast: 100% reserve requirements.  Simple change in the rules though it would probably crater the global economy which is what is going to happen anyway by design.

I sure would like a coffee cup with the new Ben prophetic quote of "Gold is not money".



Maybe you  have a pic of him to go with that new and eye opening tradition?

"We are from Fran--- The Weimar Republic"

How about Emperor Bernanke as the Print Lord from the Republic of Weimar! (Pun on Emperor Palantine from Star Wars), With Brian Sacks as Lord Darth POMO!

the grateful unemployed's picture

that's classic. and reminds me of the line from BIRD, the movie in which Charlie Parker quotes Gabby Hays, film star extra in Hollywood westerns,  "well nobody plays jazz like a full blooded American Negro.."

WB7 Great stuff  I especially like the downsized helicopter qe lite?  I do struggle with Obummer as Neo. Neo was trying to free us from the Matrix not enslave us to it. Maybe it should be Ron Paul starring as Neo.

AGuy's picture

Actually it right on target. Neo as the "one",  was revealed as a big lie at the end of the "Reloaded" movie. The same lie that the public believed that Obama was going to save them. The only difference is the Neo didn't realize it was a lie, unlike O'Bama who knew from the beginng and embrace the lie to fulfill his own objectives.

The Squidies are the Goldman sacks, the JPM, and other investment bankers out to repress man. They move in to destroy all that remains that is not apart of their system/plan.

The Matrix movie trillogy was a symbol of the future to come (since it was released years before the crisis unfolded).

Dr. Engali's picture

You have a good point. I should have seen that. They really fucked up the third movie. The only movie that they fucked up worse than that was Star Wars with that stupid ass Jar Jar binks and the mitichlorines. Hey there's one for you Wb7.

williambanzai7's picture

Don't struggle too much. The clowns sure aren't.

The runaway deficit pic... that's how he stormed out of the meeting yesterday, right?

williambanzai7's picture

Yes, pounding his chest like Tarzan.

CompassionateFascist's picture

More like King Kong. Izzat racist? Nooooooooo....

williambanzai7's picture

Don't you pound on your chest when when you ace something? I use to when I had a swagger.

Its like intermission time in the Twilight Zone.

I'm warning you, don't call my bluff!

williambanzai7's picture

The emotional bluff is a very common tactic in negotiations. Sometimes it works, depending on the personalities involved.

Its doesn't work very well in public situations, unless you happen to instill fear in everyone else around you. But then it would not be a negotiation. 

nmewn's picture

Agree, a very common tactic, the bluff.

My intermission comment was more of an observation on how it is so completely surreal.

These are some of the same people who have failed to agree on a rational, sane budget for over 800 days.  

That would have been something definitive, observable, debated upon before being put to paper. And doing it in this time honored and lawful way would of course been done in the light of day, where the public could see and hear...not behind closed doors in the WH.

Now one, the One, pushes his chair back and announces that he is bluffing and pleads that his bluff not be called? God would I love to play poker with this joker...LOL!!!

Rod Serling would be proud ;-)

Banzai7 News--Zodiac Tim Geithner met with members of Congress on Capitol Hill this afternoon and revealed that he has an exploding C4 Gerbil stuffed up his ass. The rodent is trained to self detonate if the Congress does not head early warnings of Debt Ceiling Armageddon...

nmewn's picture

Timmy Gerbil...ROTFL!!!

Look everyone, I'm running!

I'm running with my hair on fire!

I'm running with my hair on fire and a knife in my hand!

I'm running with my hair on fire, a knife in my hand and gerbil up my ass!

I'm running with my hair on fire, a knife in my hand, a gerbil up my ass and if you don't do as I say the gerbil gets it!..LOL!!!

It's easy to forget in these times we live in, but we started this week of with warnings of terrorists with surgically implanted bombs.

Definitely can't read this one to my four year old.

It's never too early to begin deprogramming your loved ones. Saves time, money and frustration later when they are just another zombie looking for more government cheese.

/sarc.......I think.

well we knew it was too good to be true

Derek is a conservative Republican who supported George H. W. Bush in 1988 and 1992 and campaigned for his son George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, and she appeared at both Republican conventions. Derek has also appeared at public events with Republican Congressman David Dreier of Southern California.[1]

When White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten was asked about the nature of his relationship with Bo Derek on the April 30, 2006 edition of Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Bolten identified Derek as a "friend" and as a "strong supporter of the President."

In 2006, Bo Derek was appointed to the Board of Trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts by President George W. Bush, serving on the Operations Committee.[2]

Maybe one or two of those beads got lodged in her nasal passages, blocking oxygen intake etc.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I got a pea stuck in my nose when I was 4. Does that count?

williambanzai7's picture

I am pretty sure she no longer looks like that.
