OT, but the 40th anniversary of pure fiat is close (15 August 1971). Shouldn't ZH celebrate accordingly? However, when I think about it... 40th birthdays are sad events, you are closer to the grave than ever before... so... getting drunk alone will do.
Come on: convertibility of FRNs to US dollars was never abandoned, it was only suspended until markets calm down, so it's transitory.
"I have instructed Secretary Connelly to suspend temporarily the convertability of the dollar into gold..."
and people wonder why GenX is how we are
Good news: the average age of fiat is 80 years.
Well see, that's the whole point here.
If you don't have a bank failure nobody gets arrested...
JPMorgan didn’t admit or deny allegations in the complaint. It will pay a civil penalty of $133 million, plus $18.6 million repayment of its profits and $2 million in interest.
Actually I would have no problem giving those criminal US Banksters a Golden shower if it would help. But that's just me.
Anyone else interested in whipping it out and helping a bankster in need?
The following phrase comes to mind:
"I wouldn't piss on your teeth if your gums were on fire."
Yea, sorry. My piss is too valuable for that. I'll be utilizing it in the far more important act of flushing instead.
Yeah sure, here's the gold shower:
(when does the season 2 begin?)
I don't need to click the link to know what it is pointing to.
Sometimes you worry me.............
Sometimes I worry me as well. Then I visit ZH and find I'm tame by comparison to many others.
It's always good to find out you are more normal than normal.
Support mental health week or I'll kill you! :>D
Why do they hate America?
Probably for the same reason many posters here do.
Bankers letting other bankers hang? Must mean they are throwing in the towel on Afghanistan. Since bankers run this country, I suppose the troops will be coming home soon now?
Nah, just rotating in a new set of thieves.
With such a young and virgin territory to rape the line of serial rapists is long and impatient. And it's becoming rather difficult for those in line to hide their anticipatory boners much longer.
boots on the ground are so passe'.
Droid planes flown at video display terminals that is what will replace the soldiers coming home.
colateral damage will be up but the military will accept that.
bankster shenanigans is the new trend world wide. Fiat money being toxic like white powder and just as hallucinogenic, we can expect a rash of central bankers on the run with their suitcases full of green backs, lost in translation in Baghdad for 6 billion, re-found in smaller denomination in Kabul and elsewhere. You never lose a true green back anywhere in the world. Make haste while that trend is still "gaga-cool" and in the air.
Is that what justice looks like? It's been so long I forgot about the concept entirely.
Doubtful. More like gangs fighting over turf. In this case, one of the gangs has the facade of legitimacy called 'government' and they are trying their best to keep the ruse alive.
Sounds to me like the bankers were not sharing the wealth with the right people.
Afghanistan is a 'young' democracy (Banana Republic) and America is a mature democracy (Banana Republic) ...give it a decade or two and these Afghan bankers will get away with financial murder as they pass ever more regulations, appoint more regulators and thicken the layers of the financial protection racket
Someone please remind what happened with Jullian Assange?
Who wants to place bets if Abdul Qadeer Fitrat gets arrested.
Julian Assange lives in the UK and watches wimbledon like the rest of us. The slightest wrong move and the surrogate Swedish justice will put its hooks on him for "rape" without rubber... a new concept.
So, only the Fitrats manage to make it to the US for protection. Fitting
What's worse than a banana republic? One without any bananas. Yes, we have no bananas!
And we are officially a bigger banana republic than Afghanistan.... where camels are taxis, growing opium is revered, and bankers are still held to account for corruption.
+1 for the laugh.
Damn barbaric Afghani tribesmen don't know how to treat respectable bankers. Bankers do God's work.
And it begins with mental corruption, taught onwards from the moment you are born. Though, one in a million for unknown reasons resists against all odds.
radioactively orange criminal = lulz
China executes crook banksters, Afghanistan arrests crooked banksters, USA gives crooked banksters as many billions as they want.
They should stick US bankers and politicians in an Afghanistan jail that houses donkeys and goats and make them mate, then we would get half breeds that look like half of Nancy Pelosi and Bwarney Fwank!
Why that FitRat is one Fat Cat....
with 9 lives.
But this is just one crook 1 arresting crook 2, so the money spigot stays open.
Geitner just announced he wants to leave after the debt ceiling has passed...wierd timing.....but maybe he is going to hang out with the Afgan bankers...
Goldman Sachs Board Member Spared any investigation by the SEC... Surprise! Surprise!! Surprise!!!
“Gupta was not called as a witness at Rajaratnam's trial, which ended in his conviction on all counts last month. But his voice was heard in several taped phone calls between the men; prosecutors say that, in one case, Gupta called Rajaratnam only seconds after leaving a Goldman board conference call to tell him that bank had received a big investment from Berkshire Hathaway.”
hang the pikers!
Squirls in the Server! Double!!
Squirls in the server.. triple!
Forget the SEC, take matters into your own hand...
BFB - Bullets For BAnkerS
breeders probably think the Earth rests on the back of a turtle... gunna breed asia muslim as i see it
real dangerous stuff when some fools label israel a supernational zionist militaristic regional agressor... probably even question the UN oil wars, barbarians
Geithner is leaving? Does the US have an extradition treaty with Afghanistan, or wherever he's headed for?
