Paul Krugman is such a disease-ridden mental piece of shit.  He knows full-well the propaganda spewing from his mouth is part of the destructive bank/FED agenda.  Move to some other host country and leach off their blood.

Thanks again Banzai!

O.T. - Good post yesterday by Ann Barnhardt, More Economic Theory: Expanding the Money Supply.

Here's your morning Princeton Bullshit Artist:

BILL MOYERS: And you argue that this could actually be solved in two years?

PAUL KRUGMAN: That's right. And that's not a number plucked out of thin air. That's a guess at how long it would take to get a serious spending program going. And we could actually make a lot of difference in it even quicker than that because the fact of the matter is, far from having effective job creation program, we've actually been pulling back. We've seen state and local governments lay off hundreds of thousands of school teachers. We've seen public investment in basic stuff like road repair cut way back. If we just went back to normal rates of filling potholes and normal rates of employment of school teachers, that could be done in months.

BILL MOYERS: You wonder why, given the suffering, Congress and the White House haven't acted.

PAUL KRUGMAN: Well, there are I think two, two levels of opposition. And one of them is just raw politics. We have a powerful political movement in this country that has a longstanding goal of rolling back all of the social programs, all the safety net that we've created. They want smaller government. They want reduced public services. Even the idea of public schools is very much under attack. They want it all to be switched to a system of vouchers. And they see this, you and I see a disaster, they see an opportunity. Here we have cash strapped state and local government. Good. Forced to cut back in government. They don't want to do anything that will make it easier for them to, for government as we know it to continue. That movement controls one political party. And that political party controls one house of Congress. And that is enough to stand in the way of a lot of things we ought to be doing. Then there's the second level, which is this odd coalescence of, I picked up the phrase from other people. Actually, from the blogger Duncan Black. "Very Serious People," capital V, capital S, capital P. (Moyers & Company, January 11, 2013)

He needs to get a "real" job and learn how the "real" world works.

He is too busy dancing with nobel angels on the head of a PhD pin.

Thanks Banzai, I needed that this morning. A picture of sanity in a nation who's leaders, academics & economists have gone completely insane.

His tramp stamp is a nice touch, I imagine any denomination of coin slid up this charlatans ass would make this arms start flailing around and mouth move ;-)

I see several dimensions of farce intersecting at the apex of the trillion dollar coin side show. Slightly to its credit, the White House seems to have realized that this was pushing the audiences suspension of disbelief to the limit.

Nevertheless the whole episode has put an apostrophe on the crux of the fiat biscuit, as brother Zappa would have said.

lol...indeed it did my brother, indeed it did.

In the process of promoting it they exposed the theory of what they're doing now themselves under the current fiat regime.

Platinum (the value of it) had nothing to do with I remarked early on in this ridiculous charade...they could have spray painted "One Trillion Dollars" on the side of a Yugo and parked it in front of the would have the same "value". 

Something very much less than ;-)

What decade was the "tug of war" thing published?

Just curious, it appears that the issue with big banks and the buying of both parties has been around for say 100 years, 1913 thru 2013??

I wonder if their is going to be a 100 year party for the formation of the FRB??

But I was thinking more like Saint Gaudens' Liberty dressed as a rave chick and shufflin' hardstyle.

Sorry to be so mean, but judging by your face, I believe your standards are very low?

But I like your confidence:

I was talking about the coin. Oh wait, that only makes it worse, doesn't it?

What, shoving a trillion dollars worth up your ass?

Some find this stimulating... golden hamsters come to mind...

You guys are so juvenile. Stop sticking things in my butt--it hurts after awhile.

Nah it came out of your ass, which is as worthy as the trillion dollar platinum coin idea...
