The Grinning Gun Runner wakes from his sleep

With no remorse for those who kick at his feet

Skin care consultant calls the police

But from this dungeon there is no release

Bleed forever seep from the stones

Bleed forever silence our tones

Bleed forever mould us like clay

For everything we had has wasted away

I have a major problem with people who misrepresent my easily verifiable facts, and also lie like the devil.

Wm. Banzai's response about my remarks to be wary of Kunstler, especially concerning his remarks on the Fed (and that goes truly hardcore re: Jeremy Rifkin and some douchey named Richard Heinberg with the Post Carbon Institute -- they both make up fantasy stories regarding the economy and the meltdown!):

Banzai's response:

I flipped that book in the book store when it came out.

It didn't appear to be a book in favor of Wall Street. I thought he was criticizing the lack of rule of law in finance.

(Note that I had made explicit and specific reference to Kunstler's comments on the Fed and its critics.)

My response:

Since his book, and his writing in that book, is exactly favorable on the Federal Reserve and accuses its critics as being John Birchers --- your response is entirely unacceptable.

You are supposed to be dealing in facts here, not fantasies.

GO BACK AND READ THE FRIGGING BOOK, DOUCHETARD!

Some douchey commenter named TheFourthStooging, repeats a similar falsehood:

TheFourthStoogeing

I've read the book and I read his weekly blog as well. Anyone that thinks Kunstler favors or defends Wall Street has a problem with their reading comprehension, as his writings express a view almost diametrically opposite of that.

 My Response:

You obviously didn't read the effing book if you completely missed what Kuntsler said about the Fed and its critics (calling them John Birchers, etc.)!

You are a full of crap and a confirmed liar.

Anyone can verify that by reading his book, or checking in the index and reading the appropriate pages.

I'm not going to buy his fucking book or write a dissertation and post it in your virtual blog. I flipped it in the book store just as I said and BTW I decided not to buy it. Does that tell you something? I constantly buy books books on a whim.

And I asked you a very simple question which you could have politely answered by providing me with a quote since you apparently did buy his book. If you want to make a Federal case out of what Kunstler thinks go and do it on his site, not in my comment space. And BTW, I have no idea who FourthStoogeing is or what he reads or thinks.

Now you have the piss assed gall to come back and call me I douchetard?

Fuck you,

I'll tell you who is a douchetard.

You.

Have I ever complained or nudged you about your habit of making short gratuitous compliments before promptly plowing into typically off topic extended blog posts in the comment section?

The answer is no, zero, zippo, nada...999

Why? Because I believe in allowing others to express their thoughts freely and don't mind sharing. Something I call civil discourse.

But it appears you are not what I thought. You are not interested in civil discourse or polite conversation. It appears you are some self absorbed immature asshole who likes to shoot his insolent fucking mouth off based on some fantasy that people are conspiring to attack and harpoon his tenuous profundity.

Don't look a fucking gift horse in the mouth asshole.

Go and fuck yourself in the mirror instead and before you do, remember to remove your tampax.

Well done, sir.

It is likely that sgt_doom is just some butthurt wingnut who has been spoon fed some anti-Kunstler drooling points which he simply repeats ad nauseam. My response to his ranting in the other article's comments shows that he has either never read the book or is a subliterate cretin (possibilities which are not mutually exclusive).

I am no expert on Kunstler. I read most of his first book and his guestposts here. I also see him interviewed from time to time on other sites.

I was merely curious about him advocating the cause of the Fed.  But I'm not going to expend time and money with his latest book, which frankly I concluded did not deliver sufficiently on the title.

I do enjoy his ornery style of prose and I just searched his blog for the term Federal Reserve and noticed this:

   "Of course the pervasive accounting fraud and routine swindling that drive the banking "industry" are abetted by the phantom government "policy" of the Federal Reserve, an institution that 99.999 percent of the American public could not explain under threat of water-boarding. The bottom line is political and economic leadership that can only pretend the economy works, and the destiny of such pretense is the death of legitimacy - meaning the public's faith in the system. Sooner or later either the public will revolt against such a system, or the system will just implode and leave the public floundering in a period of dreadful chaos.

     Nobody capable of thinking through these rather abstruse matters believes Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke anymore, and his demeanor in public is of a depressed person who has lost belief in himself and what he does. He announced last week's policy salvo - the long-awaited QE-3 - with absolutely no conviction. The Fed will spend $40 billion a month in money created out of thin air to buy non-performing mortgages from banks eager to dump them and interest rates on new mortgages will fall to record low levels. This will supposedly "stimulate" the housing market."

And Sgt Doom etc I know you are out there reading this and I am more than happy to look at whatever citation you are referring to. I have no hidden agenda regarding Mr Kunstler and his writings.

But keep it short and straight to the point please.

Ditto to what I said to your Siamese twin, sonny.  You too damn lazy to go to a book store or library and look in the index --- it's really a very simple activity, even a simpleton should be able to manage it!  (And Kunstler is on the advisory board of that complete and total Wall Street agent/stooge, Richard Heinberg's Post Carbon Institute --- they've co-opted, or are attempting to, the discussion on climate change to profit the oil/bank cartel --- just take a very close look at their funding.  I'm glad that illiterate stooge above your comment thinks like you --- I'd be scared shitless if such a stooge thought like yours truly!

Relax gentlemen.  We are all friends here, with the exception of Cointelpro. 

How about a poem?  That should cheer you up!...

Yes, I realize it should say, "Talmudic-Zionist Zew", but that wouldn't rhyme.  So, without further adieu:

Boo hoo hoo. I'm a poor Zew.
To Greater Israel, I am true.
I'll bulldoze your home for free.
All Zews, always, stand with me,
except for a self-hating few.

Boo hoo hoo. I'm a poor Zew.
Criticize me and I'll calumnize you!
From g-d I have a deed divine
That tells me what is mine
Is mine, and yours is mine too.

Boo hoo hoo. I'm a poor Zew.
Please pay me a billion or two.
Support my Holy Master Race.
Keep the non-Zews in their place.
Twist the knife and turn the screw

Boo hoo hoo. I'm a poor Zew.
Everything I say is true.
Those Pallie kids are really bent.
We'll kill them ALL, by "Accident".
It's called "Defense" -- What else is new?

Boo hoo hoo. I'm a poor Zew.
About me, you haven't a clue.
If you get in my way, you don't exist,
so don't even dare to try to resist!
No matter what we do, our Media blame YOU!

Boo hoo hoo. I'm a poor Zew.
G-d loves me and G-d despises you.
My genes give me a sacred right
to make you suffer day and night.
You are not really human, in God's view.

Boo hoo hoo. I'm a poor Zew.
I'm a gangster, through and through.
Two world wars I've helped to start.
But that's because I am so smart.
Ask JFK, if you're seeking a clue.

Boo hoo hoo, I'm a poor Zew.
I tell U.S preachers what to spew.
I've gained 10,000,000 Zionutzi slaves:
Their messiah is a war-god: Herzl saves.
G-d orders them to bless me and curse you!

Boo hoo hoo, I'm a Poor Zew.
Suffer and suffer is all that I do.
3,500 years to the day,
is how long I've suffered in every way.
And now, revenge! I launch my nukes at you!

Boo hoo hoo. I'm a poor Zew.
My police are watching you.
We love the Nazi Zewish State,
and need to kill all those who Hate.
To speak the truth should be taboo!

Did you notice that Murdoch was forced to give a public apology for an anti-Netanyahu cartoon published in the Times of London? The cartoon was done by the guy who did the artwork for Pink Floyd's Wall album.

I thought it was interesting that Murdoch of all people was forced to pronate himself, particularly since he is a staunch supporter of Israel as far as I am aware.

The cartoon itself was pretty good, but it was published on Holocaust remembrance day, and caused a ruckuss due to the blood symbolism. Anyone who knows his art, knows that is his style.

This is the latest modus operandi attempting to quell the rising public anger. Oh we inquired about that...

They are obviously sensitive now since it took them 24 hours to bounce that jackass Breuer.

The same thing with the stupid Trillion Dollar Coin idea, which they didn't have to publicly renounce.

Perhaps it dawned on someone that the train ain't leaving the station unless public trust is restored. It was impossible for them to realize that with Geithner orchestrating everything. Now they will have to realize it will take years for trust to return.

They will resort to symbolic gestures in a last ditch attempt at misdirection.

I don't think it was a good idea for Blankfein to rub it in with a $30 million dollar summer home purchase.
