Bob Pissani is the worst.

Worse than Krudlow? Or Liesman? That's quite an ugly contest.

Worse than Morgan Stanley defaulting on 3.3 billion loan.

"A Morgan Stanley property fund failed to make $3.3 billion in debt payments by a deadline on Friday, handing over the keys to a central Tokyo office building to Blackstone (BX.N) and other investors, the largest repayment failure of its kind inJapan."

Geiger counter readings too high?

Wait a minute. Turbo Timmy said a black hole would open up near Darlington, SC and start sucking all of the United States into it giving the land back to the Indians if we did not get this taken care of before Easter. So are people and towns vanishing in the Carolinas or was the earthquake near Bermuda just a warning shot?

The hole actually opened up in the sky, and quite a bit of the eastern carolinas was sucked up thru it. People vanished, but apparently no towns.

I caught this story a couple of days ago, about 'Chase Manhattan' evacuationg Tokyo, and defaulting on their leases.

Seems that one of the alternet sites I frequent had a link to this Rueters story!

Some of these evil news sites , enemies of the State ALL, even link to 'Tyler Durden', and THIS site!

The EVIL 'A.J.' has a link to Zero Hedge, and THIS STORY!


Gee whiz! You would think that the posters on 'Zero Hedge' also are frequent visitors to certain sites that discuss Sodium Floride, genetically modified foods, stratospheric geoengineering, the High Altitude Auroral Research Project, the PNAC documents, The FED conspiracy, the Georgia Guidestones, 'Project 21', The report From Iron Mountain, or the craziest of all, the 'Loose Change' blogumentaries!

As far as 'geiger counter' readings, there is this guy named Arnie Gunderson, posting on VIMEO, from the 'Fairewinds Institute', who discusses the Fukushima, Dai-ichi 'TEPCO' thing.

Here is a really OLD link, that I sent out about 9 April 2011:

Blackstone is SO 20th century!

How about CERBERUS?

Well off the after you puke and you lift your head off of the side of the bowl....which comes right before you fall asleep with your head on the cool tile floor.

But who cares?  Brent Wilsey doesn't care.  Fucking debt ceiling violation party at Dog's house!  Woot!  Get long gnomes!

"party at Dog's house!"


I was actually thinking that we should be celebrating this with a party.

Tyler, this article would feel more complete if Banzai7 put us up a pic of Turbo Timmy poppin' champagne.  Maybe we can celebrate proper when the actual debt subject to the limit hits our current target. 

We can count it down like it's done for new years.

Guys, please do me a favor -


If I doze off, don't let me miss the revolution IF Americans ever wake up to the simple fact that they have a private bank that loans their government money, to which they have to pay interest.

99.99999999999999999% of Americans fail to understand this very basic yet totally illogical fact and crime committed against them.

I'm hoping at least 3% ultimately catch up.

"Socialism (including Bernanke-Geithner-Paulson TBTF Corporate/Financial Socialism, of the Squid-enrichening variety) is awesome for those who just want to party, until you run out of other peoples' money."

Simple definitions are much better than learning the history.  Meanings change, so just cut to the chase, right?

But if that's really supposed to serve as a definition, it has to include guys like Reagan and Dubya, right?  Yes, of course, obviously FDR and Obama and JFK and Johnson, yes yes.  But if it's really just about spending other people's money, we need to include those other guys too.

I've heard a lot of criticism of Dubya, even a bit of criticism of Reagan, but I admit I haven't heard too many folks call either of them "liberal."

(There must be a way to make the definition only apply to people you don't like...)

Gold and silver investors (hoarders). The word has been used to describe the UT purchase in one headline that I saw, somewhere. This trend will not be your friend.

Don't worry, they never will.

All that happens is some jerk on television or some public official will simply say that's a lie, and dumb Americans will believe it.  It's as simple as that.

If people stop watching television and actively start believing that public officials are what they are, complete incompents mixed with total liars, then maybe the general populace will start to realize the Federal Reserve is just a private a bank with Federal as part of it's name.

Debt used to matter, but it was a long time ago.

Now is the time of hope, change and transcendance. Nothing matters anymore. Everything is beautiful, good and tasty. 

Nerdy libertarians should embrace life instead of always bitching about debt, deficits, inflation, silver manipulation, work, blah blah blah. Light some weed and get some fun.

I haven't seen Harry in awhile, does he still come around?  If not, well then Hamy just might as well go balls to the wall.  It is kind of funny seeing folks responding to him that aren't aware of the schtick.

It's been a long time since I've seen him, too. The ersatz Harry parody was more entertaining when there was a Harry. But oh well: what the hell.
