She should follow Cameron's example...
The two largest economies in the world are contracting. One is entering a currency Crisis (China). The other’s currency is part of a $9 trillion carry trade (the US Dollar).
To hear mainstream gold commentators tell it, gold and silver went up following Britain's vote to exit the Eurozone, whereas (nearly) everything else went down. That is not how we see it. At all.
A MESSAGE FROM WB7: Happy Mother's Day Mom !!!!
Watch out where the huskies go and don't you eat that yellow snow.
Good advice, from a mutha ;-)
Just bought a free ticket for Jamie D. on this ship:
Outstanding, sir! ! ! (And thanks for including Rahm, who denied the constitutional right to assemble just this week to the National Nurses United union!
And speaking of deception:
Beware The Bullcrap: Sgt. Doom’s Totally Irrelevant Commencement Address For Hapless Grads
Much of what you will hear, read and learn as you go through life will turn out to be bullcrap, therefore, always stay open minded, always strive to be mentally flexible.
Beware the bullcrap !
Years ago I read of the destruction of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge as detailed by a civil engineering professor, an Italian immigrant, who left out some very crucial points which dramatically altered the narrative: the original bridge design had been sound, but they brought in a second engineer named Leon, who radically altered the first design, removing important structural components to make things cheaper.
The original engineer complained officially and members of the bridge construction crew took bets on how long the bridge would last; it wasn’t really a surprise when it collapsed!
Back in the 1960s, a series of articles, and even a movie, appeared about the dolphin expert, John Lilly.
Later, in reading Lilly’s autobiography it became obvious that the movie and all the articles had been complete and total fiction! (I verified that it was indeed Lilly’s autobiography --- the truth being that he was a paranoid schizophrenic who never completed his education, he certainly never earned a degree from Cal Tech! Yes, turns out you can buy a degree from the California Institute of Technology, Harvard and MIT, and whenever Lilly wanted to dump his wife for a newer, younger model --- it wasn’t his fault --- Lilly claimed to be following the directives from the “Galactic Council of Ten.”)
Reminds one of how old Joe Kennedy, who essentially flunked out of prep school, not only managed to scam his way into Harvard, but obtained an academic scholarship in the process.
Joe Kennedy would become the youngest bank president in America . . . . it figures!
There was a popular column for some years written by Marilyn vos Savant, claiming to have tested positive for the world’s highest IQ; she even made it into the Guinness World Book of Records.
I saw her in several interview, and she certainly didn’t appear to be any kind of super genius (I have come in contact with at least several) so I wrote and complained to Guinness about her entry in their book.
Some years later Guinness would retract her entry; turned out she only tested at an IQ of 132!
Just recently, the Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, warned of the existence of Al Qaeda anywhere. It wasn’t bad enough that there’s Al Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula (AWAP), Al Qaeda in Syria (AQS) and Al Qaeda on Wall Street (AQWS), but now there’s Al Qaeda Anywhere (AQA).
And most of all,
Beware of guys named Leon !

I followed Lilly's career pretty closely since the 1960's. You have any references for your claims? Typed in "John C. Lilly hoax" into google and came up with nada. I have a closet full of tin hats, so am potentially open to an expose of this sort. But want some facts, not your opinion about his mental health. For example, he was supposed to have been awarded an MD degree by U of Penn in 1942. You have any evidence that this is untrue?
Sadly, el G, your response reminds me of an institutionalized former prof of philosphy, who always carried around with him an ancient book, the Lincoln Book of History (circa 1930), no doubt excellent for that time, but the mentally ill prof would always proclaim, if he couldn't find it in that Lincoln book, it couldn't be found (it stopped at 250 pp.).
Had you typed in "John C. Lilly" and "galactic" (as referenced in my remark) you would have come back with an entirely different result --- but a variable search on your part would have been indicative of higher intelligence and there's nothing in your remarks to indicate such.
His autobio I found in a major city library back in the early 1990s, I checked to verify it as it was completely different from I had read of him in the 1960s (I also had followed his work closely) -- found it was indeed written and published with his say-so, etc.
Whether it was written under tremendous doses of ketamine, which he was supposed to have imbibed (which he stated in previous interviews) and he recalled his past life differently, I can't rightly say, but a former lab assistant did claim she did all the work he was given credit for, so.......
I can no longer find it, so maybe it was pulled for such a reason, but I'm now highly skeptical of anything by or about him.
Well done! Carry on, Sargent! :>D
Don't forget Banzi, "You're all worthless and weak! Now drop and give me twenty!"
This is great!

the social security Big Mama is , I think, what the oligarchs have planned for us,

and being sent down to the prison gulag where Romney will enjoy making you into his bitch,
and then you'll be willing to die, or work to make your jailers richer.
Hill Valley Telegraph! simply awesome...need some Lea Thompson though lol.
Can't you just show up with a card? ON TIME FOR ONCE!
I think I've mentioned before that FZ is on the honor roll of Banzai7 heroes.
Warms my heart to see him honored, thanks. Far ahead of his time.
One of the handfull of people who called it early on and spoke out publicly.
“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” ? Frank Zappa
Good work, willie the pimp!
Right-on! There are many political clips out there from interviews (youtube) that are very relevant to today. He was big on not associating yourself as a Rep. or Dem. as they were curse words.
+1 on using the FZ album cover. Hope Gail doesn't see it. FZ at one time in the 60's and 70's had a fulltime graphics
artist working for him. Conceptual Continuity = Crux of the Biscuit.
WB, from this classic set, I think some immigrants in the US are already colour-printing out versions of your USA 'social security card' graphic above with their names on it.
Now they can get that driver's licence on Monday.
