Life at the top is so fly
The best life that money can buy
So those at the top
Never will stop
As those at the bottom just die

The Limerick King


At Davos they need to take meds
To help clear concerns from their heads
To make them feel high
So bullshit they buy
This pill works for Kelpto inbreds

The Limerick King




At Davos the critics are few
These Kleptos know what they must do
The've taken an oath
Their story is "growth"
The pill that they're taking is blue

The Limerick King



Keep your eye on the little blue pill
This game's gonna give you a thrill
You'll never be right
But to they're delight
By playing, they've made you a shill

The Limerick King






"And this is what makes Davos so fascinating: it is the most perfect case study of how the practitioners of free-market, globalised capitalism give the public one explanation for what they are doing and why, while privately pursuing the complete opposite. On the one hand there is an event attended by Sharon Stone, Bono and a slew of tame academics (14 Nobel laureates this week alone), the message being "we're open to anyone". On the other hand, there are those secret meetings, off limits to anyone not in the £100k club. It is both a reputation-laundry service, and the most shadowy backroom-dealing house." 

Aditya Chakrabortty

I wonder whose plane Maria "G6" Bartiromo flew in over to Davos?

Reclining seats?

Leather couch?

 If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.

the bible took an awful long time to say something pretty dull, as below:

“ 9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. 11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.”  (Ecclesiastes 1:4-11)

WTF on Bloomberg TV (Tues AM)

Sara ending off the discussion with Keene who is on remote in Davos while she is back in NY

"Tom Keene, We miss you, we love you"



(in the context of Keene in other episodes addressing Ms Sara as "Gorgeous" and in another instance grasping a Barbie Doll that he renamed Sara one wonders where the BBG HR department is during these broad  casts)

It's critical to bring as many people as possible to a level of understanding and individual expression that says unqualifiedly: ya, we know what you fuckers are doing, we are here shaking our heads laughing at you and waiting patiently for the pivot of history to arrive.

The more shit they throw around, the sooner that moment will arrive.

Has it occured to you "worse is better" types that you may be waiting patiently for a veddy, veddy long time...

...because the Revolution has been indefinitely postponed? That blue pills are so endemic and ubiquitous that the necessary cascade will never form?

Not floride in the water - data analysis in the social media... look how O was elected. The campaign is permanent.

The masses surveil and indoctrinate themselves - tyranny has been crowdsourced. Every government and every corporation is doing this. 

And what levers of the commanding heights are required - Facebook/Google/Twitter/Apple - are all on board.

What does the trap look like when it's sprung? Look around. This is it.

[Brilliant work by the way. Not trying to be rude but I do worry you and those who cheer every passing outrage as "one step closer" are missing something crucial.]

I wouldn't characterize it as cheering. Guarded optimism, perhaps misplaced, but what else is there to do? Bang your head against the wall harder?

Well OK - that's a reasonable position.

What to do? I think you are doing a fine job, actually. 

Freeze, personalize, polarize. Ridicule. All potent weapons.

And there are others - namely, analyze.

Not Chess, or Poker - but Judo...

the worm is turning, indeed


they simply cannot even really move the ball down the field here - so many are already awake - they better have some kind of grand endgame strategy worked out or they are fucked because free humanity will overwhelm their entire historical movement - i mean this is the culmination of centuries of effort being undone by a bunch of uppity plebs who simply said "no, we will not pay attention to the hypnotism anymore, we would actually like to be free now."

They have a bunch of old schmucks over there with barely a synapse left. They're trying to adapt to a radically changing environment by remembering how WWII took place.

It is over for them. They will be replaced.

You KNOW 'terrorists' aren't really a threat because if it were they'd be going after things like this...... 'terrorism' is the new worldwide 'enemy' justifying endless war.

Trying to prortray types like 'OWS - and even the hard core Anarchists as some kind of imminent threat to the world is laughable givne the damage done by those at the top of the financial system.  Those pointing out the real crimes are somehow more of a threat than those committing the crimes?  WTF?

How comes that Ponzi did not receive yet at least a honorary Nobel prize as a great visionary for 21st century. Especially if the great minds of economy paid him a tribute:

Bastiat: What's visible and what's ponzied.
Keynes: In the long run we're all ponzied.
Mises: We're all ponzians now.
