Paul Krugman, my hero.  NOT!

The globalists like Krugman and Fareed Zakaria of CNN only promote turning the American people into overhead. This is one of the sinister tricks the globalists play on the American people.

We produce no wealth because we manufacture nothing of value.

Overhead (business)
In business, overhead, overhead cost or overhead expense refers to an ongoing expense of operating a business (also known as Operating Expenses - rent, gas/electricity, wages etc.). The term overhead is usually used to group expenses that are necessary to the continued functioning of the business, but cannot be immediately associated with the products/services being offered (e.g. do not directly generate profits). Closely related accounting concepts are fixed costs versus variable costs and indirect costs versus direct costs.

Overhead expenses are all costs on the income statement except for direct labor, direct materials & direct expenses. Overhead expenses include accounting fees, advertising, depreciation, insurance, interest, legal fees, rent, repairs, supplies, taxes, telephone bills, travel and utilities costs.

America is a nation of overhead proles.

We are all Overhead Now!

So many big words so poorly used, like talking to a cop.

Yes, well, one does need, eventually, to move beyond "See spot run".

See Bernanke print.

Print Bernanke print!

See the dollar fall.

See Dick and Jane go poor.

Only native French speakers are capable of such long-winded sentences hehe

Unnecessarily obtuse (but I loved the use of the word "braying").

My head hurts after reading that 185 word sentence also.

....but it will be the ordinary man and woman who will have occasion to rue a programme so replete with intellectual arrogance, power-worship, and a wilful blindness to its awful, unintended consequences that only a Krugman could approve of it."

So easy even a caveman Krugman can do it.

Just as the Ponzi name came to mean massive financial fraud and theft, so Krugman has come to mean fawning worship and deference to the financial and political masters of insanity.

This is a sentence.

Misean's picture

That's not a sentence, that's just typing.

How many to screw in a dim bulb?   is a question.

Backspin's picture

This sentence no verb.

This sentence has contains two verbs.


akak's picture

You say you are lying, but if everything you say is a lie then you are telling the truth, but you cannot tell the truth because everything you say is a lie. You lie. You tell the truth. But you cannot for. Illogical! Illogical! Please explain.

I liked Egon's piece better.  This was a hard read, and I did not get much out of it.

Someone likes to hear themselves talk, is the impression I'm left with.

Another awesomely brilliant Corrigan piece.

BTW, where's that giant of copy-paste pseudo intellectuallism, Spalding? I'm certain he has a response. I'll just hold my breath over here, waiting.

Mopeds, Bitchez!

A word about Romer, Summers, and Orzag.....  All of them left in disgrace for their utterly failed policies. It chaps my ass they still get a platform to spout anything. The Keynesian multiplier doesn't work anymore with massive government debt. Tapped out.

Romer on a moped Bitchez!

Aunt B on a moped would be a instant hood ornamate on someone's Dodge Ram.

That is the worst paragraph structure I have ever seen. It is unreadable.

Wonderful writing for a high school "impress-the-teacher" effort.


Tough reading for ordinary folk. A thesaurus might assist the author next time.

A Krugman


If you  take a Krugman,

1) accompany Krugman.

2) drink a large beer.

3) shoot a new scene from a film

4) go to the bathroom

Lapri's picture

Fed is busy trashing Ron Paul. One of the idiot economist at St. Louis Fed called Ron Paul a "pinhead", and says he was hoping to generate thoughtful debate.

He follows Krugman, BTW.

The "Bernank" is the tip of the iceberg now.  Power corrupts.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Capital flees tyranny--if it flees the USA it need not do so by any "order of magnitude" to have an immediate and "shocking" effect.  Of course "capital tends to move by orders of magnitude" these days.

The Bernank is the most visible portion of the Huge Beast within.

How many words was that article TD?

StychoKiller's picture

If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullsh!t!

Why use a word like 'confabulation', when 'meeting', or even 'pow-wow', conveys the same meaning?  Trying to be erudite/loquacious always gets in the way of clarity.

It seems as if the ones who try to shape the economy are trying to kill the dollar, either through stupidity or or on purpose.  It also seems likely they may succeed.  After I filter through the "silver bitchez" comments I find quite a few smart people on this site who can think outside the box.  So what replaces the dollar?  Not the Euro or Yuan, and hopefully not World Bank "Wibbies" or the Marks of the beast.  I hope we don't foresee the Bladerunner existence some here envision.  We have enormous communication and computation abilities so can any of you start thinking about other possibilities.  Local currencies maybe?  I just don't want the dollar version 2.0 to be another manipulated fiat system designed to rob the common man to enrich a parasite class.  Take some time and think about it.

akak's picture

Why assume that anything has to replace the dollar?

Before Bretton Woods, nobody talked about a worldwide "reserve currency", as none existed.  Before 1930, gold (and silver) were sufficient as reserves.  Why does the world's economy need the scam of a paper Ponzi currency to act as a reserve?

StychoKiller's picture

I foresee a plethora of local currencies, backed by real commodities, such as soybean crop(s), PMs, etc.  Local banks had better bone up on how to deal with Bills backed by Gold/Silver.

Well, the United Federation of Planets doesn't use money at all -- for example.'s picture

So Picard and Riker go riding around the galaxy just for kicks -- I can understand that. But what does that chubby blue barber who is stuck in his little shop below decks get out of the deal? And why did the people who serve synthahol in Ten Forward come along for the ride?

StychoKiller's picture

And why did the people who serve synthahol in Ten Forward come along for the ride?

They wanted to see the wonders of the galaxy on less than 3 Altairian dollars a day!  :>D

akak's picture

And why did the people who serve synthahol in Ten Forward come along for the ride?

To go where no oxygen-breating biped had gone before?

But on a different note, where did everyone on the Enterprise take a dump?  They seemed to have bathrooms, but no toilets.  Or did they just 'beam' it out of their colons with the transporter as the need arose?'s picture

The writers on the original series had a joke about that. They said that starship bathrooms came equipped with phasers to "zap the Klingons." Blue prints of the original Enterprise included in the Star Trek Concordance (?) showed toilets in the living quarters.

Yes, I was an adolescent Trekkie, God help me.

My heart goes out to your formerly anguished parents!

I must admit that I watched all the reruns multiple times --- but I NEVER even thought about attending any of the conventions!  Speaking of which, if you have ever seen the Saturday Night Live parody of Star Trek conventions, it is a SCREAM!

Hmmm. When I examine your name I detect a theme :-)
