The chocolate ration has been raised from 30 grams to 20 grams.

How much more has Goldman offered her?

"The FDIC can never ever run out of money," said Sheila Bair.


“Without these assessments, the deposit insurance fund could become insolvent this year,” said Sheila Bair.

The bitch knew how to cover all the bases.

Good reference. 

I had a prof that made us read that, along with Brave New World.  Essentially, BNW is a world where people are slaves to pleasure and consumption (sound like anywhere you know?).

Personally, I think we're on a path to harvest all the worst of the two and fuse them together into a super-misery.  Truth is [more painful] than fiction.

Sometimes you feel like the only person awake in a building on fire.  You try to wake the others to warn them and they laugh, give you the middle finger, and go back to sleep.  Strange how compassion for your fellow man is what ends up killing you through the pain of insanity.

You should also read Atlas Shrugged.

That should fix your "compassion for your fellow man".

in the old days, they would force medicate you, lock you up and give you a labotamy...  now they just ridicule you.    budget cuts I guess.

 " You try to wake the others to warn them and they laugh, give you the middle finger, and go back to sleep. "    ...... well, i agree.   

When I told my dinner companions that the United States of America was being taken over by a gang of off-shore criminal bankers, they laughed so hard that the whole restaurant was looking over at our table.   No one understands, I feel alone.

I don't know why you are so concerned about everyone else.  You may be dead wrong, you know?

Updated tomorrow:  The chocolate ration was always 20 grams.

Of course. Anyone who says otherwise is a conspiracy theorist.

Special Agent P rocks !

In any event, Sheila Bair is such a "tool."  Good riddance.

Yeah, but does she shit in the woods?

No, she sh*ts in the Bernankes mouth at his request.

Will she start working at GS on July 9th?

i'd go w/ jpmorgue, donk.  this is a comment from her charlie rose interview (oct, '08): 

It seems everyone here got sucked in on Ms Bair's coy little Miss proper act except one. This lady committed an unprecedented act of collusion with the OTS and JP Morgan Chase in the Wamu seizure and sale. She is a criminal of the worst type and it is a shame Charlie swallowed her little farce 'hook, line and sinker' and failed to ask the tough questions.

I wonder what cabinet position she will be appointed to.

She wanted to leave before the shit hits the fan and there would be too many banks to save them all.

You stole my post! I was going to say "When you have 983 problem banks" and a DIF that is negative, who would want the job!"

B-I-N-G-O has been called. Please hold onto your cards.

What will she fuck up next?

The biggest holocaust in history. She'll be selling life insurance for a dollar as people line up for the gas chambers.

from a '93 bloomie article, when she was head of the CFTC:  THE Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has given the US$ 4.8 trillion derivatives market a clean bill of health, saying that fundamental changes in the way the market is regulated are not needed. ... "We have a strong affinity for derivatives at this agency," said acting CFTC chairman Sheila Bair. "We like them."

She was a whore anyways.

I got 99 problems, but a Blair ain't one.

Heckuva job, Sheila!  Your pre-2008 bank examinations were as fanciful as your P.R. flackery.

Early word from the top is that Brooksley Bourne to be Sheila's replacement.

Sucks for me. My dream was for WB7 to do a 3's company spoof, but all my favorites are leaving.

Jack=Ben B..... Just fix it! You are the man of the house.

Janet=Sheila B...... "print the money Jack! I have a good reason for you to do it."

Chrissy = Christina Romer... "Print the money Jack, I have a different reason, it is just as good, but you would not understand it, so just print the money"

Larry Dallas = (Dimon/Blankefeild/Mozillo/Frank/Pandit/Blythe) ....... Well jack, you should probably print the money, but tell me exactly how you are going to do it so I can try to help you out.......

Furley = Timmy. ....... Jack, something is not right here. I am not sure how you plan to fix it, and or cover up for it, but all this nonsense needs to stop, even if that means printing the money.

I always imagined a corny TV show called "The Dukes of Moral Hazard" with Sheila running around in a halter top and the Daisy Dukes.

wisefool's picture

+1 thats better than mine. I was just trying to get the stare decisis from the formal (english) sitcom "man of the house" as translated to the american sitcom 3s company/hamilton/federal reserve.

But you are bringing the whole redneck (scottish/irish) lineage to the equation. Bootlegging, Irish, JFK, hot chicks (not sheila) but you get my point.

Johnny, just to make a minor correction -

All others, especially the hard-to-manage Irish, please stay confined to your lower quarters..."
