AND NOW FOR A MESSAGE TO THE BUNDESBANK FROM BENDITO BEN
.

 

Bendito is spilling the beans
The Bundesbank knows what this means
Their gold is all gone
A Central Bank con
Akin to their printing machines

The Limerick King

 

Charles Ponzi in Gold Vault
.

Ponzi can surely attest
The gold in the vault is the best
But then he checked leases
For 10 times the pieces
And said: "Now I'm really impressed!!!"

The Limerick King


 

PONZI EVENT HORIZON

.

When the Demon had finished his crime
And the assets could no longer climb
His power decayed
He started to fade
Like dust in the space-winds of time

The Limerick King

Of the three, I would think the Ponzi in the Gold vault has to be disquieting to certain powerful people. The truth hurts.

I also like the three as a set because the message is nice and tight, the topic is right on the money (pun intended) and the limericks sew it together beautifully

Moreover, the three images exemplify Visual Combat: the first subverts Hollywood, the second subverts history and the third is just imagination.

I didn't even think about your first point about Ponzi, but you're absolutely right. Talk about potent juxtaposition!

For me, I interpret the third one as the natural way of things. Control is only limited and possible for short periods of time. Those who dream of omnipotence are always let down in the end.

Neat and poetics leap within me:

You've heard of that land called Peru,

Which was robbed of its gold (as you knew).

But it all got spent, by people so bent,

That nothing was left to be lent.

Which just shows that nothing is new.

(Attributed to Golda Bankman, the whistle-blowers poet)

"In 2011, when the debt limit was increased by $2.1 trillion in return for $2.1 trillion in spending cuts over ten years." see above.

So, THEY promised us $210 billion spending cuts in 2012 and 013.  Anyone seen that?

Response: AGUY, While there are no budget cuts for 2013, you'll be happy to know that Washington did take action. They have chosen to raise your taxes for 2013. while this will not decrease the Budget deficit it will avoid the deficit from getting larger as out lays for Social Security,Medicare and Wealthfare. are rising. You should also be happy that your health insurance premiums will be increasing by about 20% in 2013 and another 40% by 2016 for ACA (O'bamacare).

Didn't recognize Benny boy at first, what with the hair and all ... even with the Bendito hat! I bet he could walk around Washington in a toupee and nobody would even recognize him.

The Event Horizon piece is awesome, one of the best yet. I bet there aren't many limericks with the line "Like dust in the space-winds of time."  :-)

You tryin' to provoke me Banzai!?

Guns at high noon for a shoot-out disputing that Krugman has anything to do with Keynes.

Yep and we could exchange fire about the truly weird fact that Libertarians just lurv Ayn Rand ... from the nominally anti-statist Ron Paul (who's had a nice little earner in Congress) to Alan Greenspan who believes in state planning of economies, via financial instruments of mass destruction.

There's nerd by the name of Paul Krugman,

Who lives in space most inhuman.

So he spouts what he does,

Without thought or fuss,

'Cos he's never done anthing usefully human.

By now you know where I am coming from. In the world we live in there is no such thing as adherence to principles when it comes to politicians and wonks.

BTW, I read that an anti-biotic resistant strain of Krugman is spreading around the world...
