The irony, of course, is that they were not trusted advisors on this transaction.

Paul Krugman is promoting a Dylan Matthews piece that's actively pushing for the current Governor of the Bank of Israel, Stanley Fischer, to be nominated to replace Bernanke.

I'm not commenting on the intricate delicacies of it all, just passing this fact along:


Dylan Matthews has an interesting piece suggesting that Stan Fischer might become our next Fed chairman. Fischer would indeed be highly qualified (as would Janet Yellen or Christy Romer, to name two other obvious candidates). But Matthews also suggests that Fischer might have a leg up in the confirmation process, because he has been a highly successful governor of the Bank of Israel who worked well with Netanyahu.

If you want some humor, read the comments (as with any Krugman batshit-crazy op/ed blog) to see what a real cult of personality and mindless gaggle of fucktards looks and sounds like.

Bandit und Buster: Since you want to introduce religion into this debate,I'd be very interested in seeing any historical proof that can be verified by educated people that Jesus even existed.Trouble is,there isn't any.Many have said this about your Book of Revelations "if only I could find the shrooms or the herb that that guy was doing."

MeelionDollerBogus's picture

pretty sure coffins were found with the names "Jesu son of Joseph" roughly translated with what appears to be a wife & child.

Not conclusive but suggestive.

NOT suggestive of religious power / mythology, merely a man's name & having lived long enough to have a wife & child (buried together).

I'm an atheist for that matter so it matters little to me but to verify which data points in the old book of lies happen not to be lies.

Most Americans and so called Western World are"hayseeds"s hooked on McDonalds and junk food, marywanna, prescription drugs,going to worthless Hollywood movies,and are in general steeped in a mire of ignorance of every description, to understand what their "representatives are doing to them. To quote that icon of information and wisdom Hollywood,"STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES", the mantra of every good American citizen, apparently. Ignorance is bliss.

Warren is rather shrewd buying the ketchup company. Ketchup is one of the essential food items of the food stamp set.

Remember Ratso in Midnight Cowboy?

Wasn't catsup a vegatable under Reagan's lunch program?  Second ingredient is sugar, but most likely that's now corn syrup.

Mr Buffett loves sugary sweetness.

i wonder who did really Gods work ,, is it GS or Adolf Hitler by removing 5 m jews and their future offspring to work on wallstreet and screw over even more people with their financial terrorist activities.

it would not surprise me if 50% of the financial sector in the usa are jews , and then they still wonder  people can not stand these mother f....s

Bandit und Buster's picture

Yes, about 'god's work'... have to clarify WHO is their god!

“Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer   -so I wasn’t lying. -and we are his chosen people.  Lucifer is very much alive.”     

The above is an exact quote of Harold Wallace Rosenthal, former top administrative Aide to the then Senator Jacob Javits, who was since defeated in the 1980 election.


Jesus said of the Jews:

Rev 2:9  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews (Judeans), and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.


 Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews (Judeans), and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.(true Israel/Anglo-saxons)

We've been decieved people!

The same reasons they been thrown out of every country in Europe at least once over the past 2000 years!

Thing is Adolf didn't remove 5 or 6 mill, there were half a million MORE jews in Europe AFTER the war than before! Can't happen!

Must read "Synagogue Rising"   at www.synagoguerising.com   Brings it all together! 

“I hardly exaggerate, Jewish life consists of two elements:

Extracting money and protesting.” 

- Nahum Godlmann, Ex-president of the World Jewish Congress

“You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they (Americans) do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. In America you can criticize God, but you can’t criticize Israel…” Israeli spokeswoman, Tzipora Menache


“Military men are ‘stupid animals’ to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”

Henry Kissinger -


"In everything, we are destroyers--even in the instruments of destruction to which we turn for relief...We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands." —Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, pages 152, 155, and 147.

 Swift Boat> Ketchup

the grateful unemployed's picture

this is slightly off topic, but you know the new ketchup bottles don't look anything like that, they're upside down so the ketchup is always at the neck of the bottle and you pour from a hole about the size of a pencil lead. (one note when you buy ketchup in the store the size of the hole is different than the one in bottles which are labeled institutional. [i think, check it yourself] the restaurant size has a smaller opening. there is probably an algorithm involved, or will soon be. 

williambanzai7's picture

Yes, I am aware of that. I always thought the glass bottle was what set them apart. The ketchup bottle IQ test. The idea was runny ketchup sucked. so they designed a bottle that made it appear as though their ketchup was less runny. There was even a trick to getting the ketchup to come out.

Munger understands what it means to have a stuck bottle ;-)

see you understand Warhol after all (footnote: during the depression my father picked up ketchup bottles because there was a two cent deposit, and they were as you notea much more elegant design)

they were front running CALPERS, (which was their client) why shouldn't they do it to Buffett. how many times does Goldman have to steal from their clients before the regulatory agency takes away their taxpayer supported FDIC insurance?

And they just can't find who made all that money shorting the airlines before 9/11.

Apparently this would be a non-starter if thousands of people died from bad ketchup. It seems the more people that die, the less there is of an honest investigation.

The future is looking pretty grim. How does one short a collapsing civilization?

I just bought a couple of producing oil wells. Total spec play, but I am going to mothball them as soon as I take possession. They only produce a few barrels a day. I am going to refine the shit myself and when collapse comes, I am going to be the only one with gas for my camaro. Then I am going to pick up mad bitchez and cruise the coast highway. I will be the only one. So I will get all the bitchez. That's how you win the game. Who needs money when you got the only camaro with a full tank of gas and a world full of hot bitchez who need a ride?

Laugh now but you will see me cruise by some day soon.

Keep walking, bitchez. I told you so.

At the risk of being a party-pooper; have you got the refining facilities to turn crude into gasoline, kerosene, diesel, lubricating oil, etc.?

If not, then you have a problem.
