Draghi is baring it all
His words were meant simply to stall
Now everyone knows
The man has no clothes
And a slightly mishaped left ball

Those airbags under his eyeballs are flipping scary.

"Typical signs of Jewish features are: Eyes are usually shiny and both eye lids are heavy and swollen. The lymphbag under the eyes is usually fuller and stands out more than on Gentiles. The high cheekbone as a rule creates a sunken cheek. The nose can only be differentiated by its slightly moving nose wings when viewed from the front during breathing. The upper lip is short and the lower lip stands out and this gives the face a sensual expression." Source:"Jewish Encyclopedia"

Doesnt Draghi means dragons in Italian? Perhaps the ancient snake worshipping grew out of some sense of... certain inadequacies? Why snip on it when there's so little there to begin with? Doesnt that just amplify the shame of having a dimunutive unit?Guess it's a good way to kick off a lifetime of trauma based mind control eh?


Looks like Soros' long lost brother with a hint of John Ashcroft, nothing reptilian about that!

The ECB head
Gets mad and sees red
When the effects of his words prove fleeting
“Listen to me!”
He implores on TV
“Or we’ll promise to have more meetings!”

Dear God........please......I did not need to see Draghi's dinky winky......nor his goose step either.

Have mercy on this poor debt slave. Let me labor in peaceful ignorance of my master's woefully underprivileged manhood.

P.S. - Clearly that's not the protruding prick I'm probed with every time I bend over. Maybe Ben is better endowed?

He gets off on QE instead

Thanks for the promised personal limerick. Please send the slightly used Spiderman towel to Draghi so the poor bastard can continue to cover up the exposed corruption.

P.S. - You can keep Knight. I have enough problems on my hands without dealing with that debacle. :)

Draghi fits the definition of "Ignoranus" better than anyone I've heard:  "A person who's both stupid and an asshole."

WB7 think you have been taken in a bit by ZH groupthink ...

Don't think this is so much of a 'downer' for Draghi's credibility as the ZeroHedge meme is claiming ... he is playing an almost expected role in the continuing play-act of the euro-game ... It really isn't so important he didn't do massive bond-buying and QE TODAY and very shortly today will seem like a 'nothingburger'

Sophisticated players are quickly figuring out Draghi is setting up the post-severe-crisis fix ... and crisis is not severe enough yet

QE and bond-buying and ESM banking licence etc. will indeed come when there is a real Urgent PUSH to do that ... when German banks and insurers and pension funds need to be saved, as well as Spain and Italy ... a much bigger 'crisis' is needed before Germany will 'reluctantly' climb aboard to save its own butt

Consider that Draghi and the Germans both have roles to play to bring about the crisis, which in turn will create the political conditions allowing the QE and bond-buying etc. to prop up the German banks and pension funds (whose vulnerability is still hidden from Germans at large)

Germans and Draghi are not necessarily real 'opponents' ... just partners with temporarily 'opposing'  roles in the ongoing euro-farce ... somewhat fake 'opponents' like Obama and Romney in USA ...

But seems like Europeans are doing better at selling the reality of the 'Germanics vs Latins' pro-wrestling match, than the Americans are at selling their own pro-wrestling contest of Romney vs Obama, aka the Mormon vs the Muslim, also aka the Gay-Basher vs the Gay-Arranger ...

Truthfully, his job right now is to run interference so everyone can take a vacation.

My job in this lull is to keep plastering the pixel ether with flattering images such as this.

As far as I'm concerned, he is all hat and no cattle because I have not seen any scenario where the basic math works. Everything is circular. Its MC Escher finance.

William, this is completely OT, but I know you'll dig it...Warren Haynes playing one of the only two Gibson 12 string Les Pauls in existence...

I really liked the vocals in that song. I thought the guitar sounded muddy certainly not like a Paul usually sounds. Ive had a Les Paul Standard for thirty years and it is a killer when it comes to clean tone, which is that Southern Rock sound.

But it was interesting to look at. I like watching Townsend with a double neck SG ;-)

You probably already know that Gibson has reissued the SG 12 string, right?


Was it the vocals you liked...or Grace Potter's legs? :)

Meh. The only electric 12 string worth owning (IMO) is the Rickenbacker 360/12. It's other-worldly sound (prolly due the the strings being coursed so close together) is as distinctive as it is unmatched.

Even Gibson sing its praises (see: http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/ProductSpotlight/GearAndInstrument... )

Also, the split-head tuners make the 360/12 a thing of beauty to look at. That head-heavy Les Paul is just plain ugly. Looks like a shovel! No wonder Gibson only made 2 of 'em!

It sounds that way from the De Armond style pick ups.

You can boost the jangle by using double compresser pedals like Mcguinn's Byrds sound.

I had a beautiful flamed red sunburst Chinese LP copy 12. The fit and finish put all but a Gibson Custom to shame.

Lotta strings on a Gibson sized neck. You need very nimble fingers. Nice tone but no Ric.

Mario the Moocher

Folks, now here's the story 'bout Mario the Moocher,
he was a red-hot Euro-cootcher,
He was the wrongest, lamest fail,
And Mario had a heart as big as a snail.

All de Dough de Dough de Dough

Now, he messed around with a Gal named Angie

he loved her though she was a Euro Banshee,
He took her down to Brussels town,
He showed her how to kick the can around.


All de Dough de Dough de Dough
All de Dough de Dough de Dough

Now, he had a dream about Borg of Sweden,
He wanted some cash that the ECB was needin',
He tried to give them an ECB supervisor

They said no cuz Borg was much wiser!
