Boehner is looking quite ill
Barry's in need of a thrill
He's now in control
He has a black hole
He thinks Elite taxes will fill

The Limerick King


The cliff talks are gonna be hell
The damage - nobody can tell
When the talks stall
We know who will fall
Ejection seats work very well

timmy thinks unlimited gov debt is a very good idea-keep congress out of it with these limits getting hit much too quickly..why not if there is no limit one can never get close to it can one..this is the economic nirvana the reptiles have planned for lo these many years..ben can monitize to the quadrillion and higher with no blow back..genius

It is delicious to watch fedgov running out of options. And doubly delicious to see WB7 kicking them while they are down. There is a God and he's a von Misean. #AshheapOfHistory

No!  It's the Fiscal Kalif!

Strapped with a bomb to its chest, the Fiscal Kalif takes no prisoners!!

The Fiscal Kalif is a terrist of the worst kind!!!

I tried watching Hangover 1 three different times and couldn't get through it. I liked the photo though. Maybe I'll try Hangover 2 for the money's sake. I meant monkey's sake. Anyhow, sometimes we babysit an English bulldog. I'll get it for the next time he comes to visit. He'll watch anything. Might have something to do with my AA participation.

No 2 is also funny because it is shot in Thailand and picks up on many tourist
clichés about Thailand.

At the end of the movie after everything is ok, they recharge a phone and find out exactly what happened on the fateful night. One guy says no lets not look at it and Mike Tyson says, come on I'm Mike Tyson, I've seen everything...then they show the pictures during the credits.

Dang, scrolling through the AM airwaves on the way home, and passing by Boston AM 680 and there he is, Levin, citing "Zero Hedge, a Great Blog"

Who knew?  There goes the neighbourhood!

But, WB7, his "Liberty and Tyrany" along with the thingie on the "Ruling Class" v. the "Country Class"

In answer to your previous question, I'd submit

and the book of same name.  Skosh' and suscinct presentation in my view.

{the dreaded private sector has these things that one must do,  Other sectors don't}

{{in other words, "My Side" is the skosh' guy on the right side of your table with three members, 1) bankstaz', nyet, 2) politicians, nyet, and 3) the poor bastards who are nyet feeding at the trough nor accepting .gov largesse.  That leaves a category that your table did not have, the non-contributing "folk" who are taking scraps from the Polz' and evidently voting them in for more EBT-ing and SNAP-ing with all associated fraud}}

The whole concept of the ruling class is really the best framework for deciphering what is going on not only in the US but globally. The next interesting question is how the emerging market power shift, ie all those Chinese and Indian billionaires, will impact the current status quo.

I trust that I'm a bit more clear.  I have no institutional knowledge of the ongoing fraud, but I do have rather skin in the game wrt "the way things ought to be" in the Country class.

It was Cheeky who nominated me as the piglet metaphore for me, and I gladly accepted that.

'cuz they (the Bankstaz') are all pig-fuckers.

Even as he drives off the cliff and Boehner has been ejected, Barry sits stoic and unconcerned.  Or does he even notice?

Does he notice? He's stoned. Why do you think he "parties" every week in the White HOuse with his bruthas in the entertainment industry? Why, to score his choom, bitch. I guess it helps his ADHD.

Maybe the market(s) are up today based upon the hope that Big O and Boner might just literally drive off the cliff.

Makes as much sense as anything else I've read.

The thing is, we're the ones being driven into the cliff. These good fellas will be monitoring the situation from safety. At least until their paymasters downsize them.

I think the democrats will let it go over the cliff to gain more bargaining power.

seems to the GOP has more to gain, because they control the house and all spending bills, the spending cuts kick in and they write the only legislation that can get passed.

Good point.  I think we will have some major gridlock or can kicking. I have been reading this site since the Tylers moved from the blog to the .com and I am amazed how nothing has blown up.  Year after year the can gets kicked.  So much so actually started to lose interest in reality. I think it might be better to join the dancing with the stars crowd, they seem happier.

I realize the "fiscal cliff" is the new popular buzz phrase and certainly it does need to be parodied. But the only socially useful thing I can think of to do with a few escess electrons here; is to remind everyone that what was once a subject of debate, and abundant scorn was heaped on those of us who thought there would be more, or even, a lot more QE; is not a subject of debate anymore. QE3 is real. It exists. This is now the world we live in. In so far as they're able people are taking this into account and changing their arrangements and changing their estimates of the future and we see the precious metals reacting slowly but strongly and surely. I would say that the cliff we just ran off of is the one that we often see Wiley Coyote run off of in the cartoon; and then while his legs are still spinning around, he looks down and discovers that gravity is going to take care of the rest of his fate. I think we're just waiting to see when a critical number of people look down, and say, "hey, wait a minute". This print till you choke cliff that we really have run off of is a lot more important I think than the media event "fiscal cliff".
