This chart makes it perfectly clear
How Klepto-Marxism is here
Both Parties make good
A reverse Robin Hood
So peasants get poked in the rear

GOLDMAN SCREW CHART @williambanzai7


Goldman sure knows how to screw
It's what they're paid billions to do
Although there's a chart
It's more a black art
How they've managed to rape me and you






The fools think that debt's still expanding
An infinite misunderstanding
There is no free lunch
Here comes the big crunch
We're in for a very hard landing

The Limerick King

I do remember the days when the Holiday season was the time for looking forward to big album releases. Now all we get is another Kardashian.

Yes, but I had forgotten about it until you reminded me of it. Thanks.

Oh my God, that "ZeroHedge Comment Cycle" chart was PRICELESS!

williambanzai7's picture

This time of the year everyone wants to do a retrospective post.

I was trying to make a list of the most popular Banzai7 posts of 2012 and I realized that Chart Subversion has developed into one of my favorite techniques.

That is just my chart output for 2012. I know I left a few out. whew!

At what height does it topple over? Hitting the fan and covering everything and everybody!

Thank you for a wonderful set of charts and toons and spoofs and shoops in 2012. I look forward to seeing more of your satirical expertise this year. Lawd knows we'll need it. Shizz gonna get wild this year...

Excellent work, the documentation outlining the currently used process must be on the order of 65 million pages - the truth.

Optimusprime's picture

The sheer level of output is amazing, WB7.  But output at this level!  Congratulations and Happy New Year to you, sir.


Any one of the charts would have been worth a post.

Awesome work Bill as're ZH's evergreen laugh-a-day.  2012 was definitely a bumper crop of ace satire. Thanks for your (and ZH's) island of sanity in a crazy world.

From the peanut gallery... Given that most of the sheeple are, at best, partially conscious and undeniably addicted to fraud and debt (another fraud)...have you considered penning a 12 step recovery program...perhaps calling it

Kick the Con ?

Or alternatively it could be a new year's fitness regimen...the Kenpo Corzine work-out....a healthy feel the burn for a change.

Keep up the great stuff in 2013 and beyond!

williambanzai7's picture

That's a good idea. I'll look at the AA charts.

Bag of sweets to you Billy Banzai...............the Athens Debt Metro is quite simply visual and comedic genius.

Billy B. - Fantastic! Especially the "No Hope" image. You must make limited edition prints, and # 1 to the Fed.

I suspect that Pravda will publish you before the NT Times or WSJ for that matter. Maybe the South China Morning Post.

You've made it a great year, Mr. Banz.

Thanks for making it easier to take.

WB-7, as always thanks for the laughs! The corral is funny as hell and I recall a very recent article about the current EPA administrator stepping down regarding bogus e-mail accounts named after Fido or something, (her predecessor, Carol Browner, used self destructing hard drives, which is something Mittens used when he was governor of Massachusetts). Ironically, he could have easily won the election by pushing the Solyndra issue(s) but he didn't, most likely because he was at ground zero of the renewables fraud eminating from Masachusetts and O knew it.


If you ever do funny stuff (art with windmills or energy), let me know as I would love to use them in my weekly articles elsewhere.


Thanks again for keeping a smile on all of our faces and Happy New Year!





williambanzai7's picture

I did do a bunch on Solyndra.

Lumberjack's picture

I will have to find those. Love the scat chart, especially the McBuffett...ironically, in my next piece, I have a blurb regarding Mid-American's (warren buffett energy concern) last minute project completions to qualify for the Wind PTC (which recieved a bail-out new years eve).

Of course, solar works beautifully if you are Warren Buffoon.

I have my own opinion on solar. I think there could have been a space where the economics made sense. But just like with everything else, all the incentives and fad thinking took the technology to China where all the proprietary know how got pilfered. China has solar manufacturers up the wazoo. Now it seems impossible to make a dime on it anywhere without the state as an essential crutch.

As far as I know, until we had WilliamBanzia7's work presented here, the highest educational credential, even beyond PhD Econ, was LLM Tax.

You are changing things sir, and I thank you for it.
