Those helicopters are not very realistic for Ben's airlift.  The CH-47D would be the choice.. the following article has pictures and even has video of how well the 'solution' QE has provided

Bear in mind that I was looking for stupid looking helicopters.

Love the 2nd photo of the Bernank with the goofy 'what happened' look, Dr. Banzai.

Not to get you to give away your trade secrets, but when do those expressions of his most often occur? When he's getting grilled by Dr. Paul or some other congresscritter?

I think Ben realized the markets were so rabid that he could drop white leaflets with only a question mark on them instead of money and get the same result.

its an insane time to be alive

but its somehow worth it when you see other people awake and fearless, creating art like this, saying things that are true and the person has no one to back them up but reality itself (premium on that these days)


just getting to see brave people, knowing they exist, makes the touch-and-go nature of it all somehow totally worth it :)

The AP fact checkers have determined that Obama was not actually in the chair next to Clint.

It was a great Trojan Horse wasn't it?

I've been laughing my ass off over it all day...I guess its time to let the cat out of the bag...on the one hand, O'Barry surrogates say that ole Clint is just a senile old fool talking to a chair...yet, it proves O'Barry's thin skin, narcissist that he is...he responded to some "senile old fool"...ROTFL!!!

He needs to re-read Rule #5 in his stupid little handbook, he got played along with every best & brightest progressive intellectual he has.

Made my day ;-)

Gee...why doesn't O'Cuntus run on his record?

If his "accomplishments" were so fucking good, why then, isn't this fuckwad out trumpeting them?

Because there are none..........

O'cuntus is a an EPIC FAILURE.....fuck off Barry....we're sick to death of hearing your lispy-fag voice anyway - douche.

I agree 100%.  However, I am also looking forward to the total failure Mitt will bring should he end up hanging out in WH.  Both parties work for the same team and that team doesn't include the non-money powerz ... like the average US citizen.

Yes I can see that would be a big deal for a political party loyalist.

To me it seems like more useless chair shuffling on the Titanic.


See George Washington's Farewell Address on factions and parties...excerpt:

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.


Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.


It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.


But of course your party/faction's leader is always the 'good guy' ...right? It's always 'the other sides' fault...

Hmmm, seems like I saw an article about "The Other Side" somewhere very recently...where was that I wonder.

nmewn's picture

It is as Banzai alludes to above.

First and foremost, Clint Eastwood is an actor. He presented a piece of performance art, not a political speech. Out of all the things of real substance that were spoken about, from taxation to deficits to debt to energy to the suffocating regulations encountered by small business to the values I know you and I both all the speeches that came before or after...O'Barry chose to respond to an actor...talking to a

Was it the fact that the empty chair contained no substance at all (just as Clint's act implied) mocking O'Barry's rather large ego compared to his results or that O'Barry can't grasp reality and prefers his unicorns and the surreal to the real?

Now, you accuse me of being a "party loyalist".  The only truth in that statement is that one of the two major parties candidates will be the next president. Thats just a simple fact. Like many, I was a democrat at one time, so I don't know what loyalty winds up meaning when a party moves away from my principles.

I stand behind what I've said before dis...a new party or movement (or however you want to describe it) can only be built after O'Barry is removed from office...he is that dangerous in my view. He does not respect laws that have already passed through the legislative process (only the ones he agrees with) or the separation of church & state or of the supremacy of the individual over its government. His "You didn't build that" line stands on its own merit, as a testament to how this power mad man views us, "the little people"...thats you and me dis. You should have known this four years ago when he blabbered about "bitter clingers" in front of million dollar was pretty clear to me then, just as the "you didn't build that" is now clear to everyone.

I've already announced I voted for Paul in the primary, that chapter is now over...O'Barry and his crazy uncle Joe have to go.

Just vote for 'the other side' one more time. This time will be different and O'Romney and his crazy nephew Ryan will really change the most important things. /s


Sorry, but...That's what I heard in your reply. Whether Romney or Obama is selected won't mean squat, the status quo is once again safe. That's what really matters to the special interests who are the real powers in this country. We the People be damned.


To be honest I didn't listen to or watch any more of the (R) convention after the five minutes I viewed of the delegates roll call the other night. Nor do I plan to inhale any of the stench from the (D) convention when it happens. I've got better things to do than worry about which cult of personality has the highest poll numbers.


Good luck with your dream that a Romney(R), or 'the other side's' dream that an Obama(D), 'win' will be our salvation.


I sell the things you need to be
I'm the smiling face on your tv
I'm the cult of personality
I exploit you, still you love me
I tell you one and one makes three
I'm the cult of personality
Like Joseph Stalin and Gandhi
I'm the cult of personality

You'll just have to trust me on what many on the "other sides" intentions are...its probably not what you think at all ;-)

I am gross and perverted
I'm obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little has changed
I'm the tool of the Government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious
With the stuff that I say
I'm the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I'm the slime oozin' out
From your TV set

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't go for help . . . no one will heed you

When I say "most imortant things" I'm asking where is the (R) vs. (D) public debate on the entity(Fed Reserve) that controls this nation's money/economy and whose interests is the 'Fed' really beholden to, as I brought up in this post on another thread(regarding an Alan Greenspan speech in 2002):


This is the root issue(exactly who is in control of our money/currency/economy) of many of our other problems.

Instead I only hear about Chik-fil-A, Clint and the chair, and other similar, senseless diversions...

nmewn's picture

I can only say, the one who pushed the hardest for an audit and transparency at the Fed had a R next to his name, even though it should be an L...its just the way it is...and the ones pushing for a replacement to the current tax code (which would ultimately remove the fiscal need for the Fed) also have R's.

We'll soon see how many on the "other side" really believe in what they call "fairness" when the money supply for war AND welfare is at risk of drying up.

I'm saying they will scream themselves hoarse with righteous indignity at Granny cliff diving...but I could be wrong ;-)

Ben's helicopter is like Christine.  Being too big to fail it rebuilds itself on command.  At the end it would appear totally crushed by the bulldozer that is reality, but a tiny piece would twitch...
