He has Ben Bernanke eyes... (Clone?)
What an echo-chamber of posers and fools you play to , Bonzai.
Doesn't anyone here know that Keynesian economic solutions are NOT BEING INSTITUTED? That the OBAMA economic team is neoClassical in its approach?
Doesn't anyone here know that Krugman is outside of these shitty Obama policy circles...that he is a Cassandra like character here?
Doesn't anyone have a recollection of KEYNESIAN POLICY under FDR/TRUMAN/EISENHOWER/Kennedy????
Has Big Brother/Big Data scrubbed your collective memories and you are left knowing nothing while feverishly working hard against your very own interests?
You need a warning label for the second picture. "Ahh...My EYES!"
That is an actual Versace ensemble. I took a picture of the picture in a mall.
His junk BELONGS in a trash bag!
Have you noticed more trolls after your epic #AskJPM twittering? Or is that just coincidence? You must be over the target.
Now that you mention it yes. But truthfully, I had lots more trolls in the very beginning. Much of what I was conveying from the start is no longer considered fringe. Take the banks for example. I challenge anyone to defend the thieving behavior of the big banks. Similarly, the game that is being played with money printing is all out in the open now as well. There is a litany of facts that only a moron or a paid shill would challenge. What we are seeing now is sour grapes.
My attitude is it is all part of the terrain. And I will do my best to police my little space here. I expect others to do the same in their respective spaces. By spreading the task, we will collectively shut them out with the ridicule and derision they deserve. It has been said quite accurately that the thing they hate the most is public ridicule, because for them, it is all about vanity and ego.
When you are in a room full of people and you find yourself in agreement with everyone there, leave immediately! It means you have been brainwashed.--SI Hayakawa (paraphrased)
Excellent point, Billiam...yet, you are still here?
Not to feed the animals or anything but I want you to know that I am not a critic of your art, per se. It's your choice of targets that is the problem. The attacks by Zero Hedge on Krugman are "own goals" by you self admitted "little guys".
As a artist and editorialist, you, William, are painting your own self as an "Ass-Clown" for the oligarchs with each attach on Krugman. Here is why:
Krugman is not the author or "shill" for the current Fed policy. His positions are often mischaracterized, especially at ZH, as being advocacy positions when they are really just commentary on rather traditional (and failed) economic approaches.
You folks fail to keep in mind that Krugman is not running these policy choices...he is the outsider.
The only fair ciritcism that can really be leveled at Krugman is that he has not been critical -enough- of the neoClassical economic approach (monetary policy with QE, low inflation, ZIRP) of Ben Bernanke and that he has not been chearleading -hard enough- for the NeoKeynesian alternatives (fiscal policy with FDR style JOBS programs, social spending as in GERMANY/SWEDEN).
In this dumb downed public discussion of economics, the truth has been entirely distorted and your works reinforce the errors.
Krugman is often quoted as saying he would pursue an entirely different policy but then goes on to say "but if he was to play neoClassical economist, then he might do 'X-Y-Z'". Sure, that get's him in trouble with those who don't follow the context. But you, Billiam, should take the time to know better! Your Zombie following thinks you -are- familiar with the issues and don't, themselves, stop to question the nature of your target.
That Monday morning intellectual quarter backing by Krugman has been misinterpretted by YOU and others to be tacit advocacy and that is WRONG. Take the time to understand Krugman and Keynesian economic policy ideas and recognize that we have not seen those policy choices since Isenhower.
I would draw your attention to this article which highlights much of the confusion and misunderstanding that intellectuals like Krugman create for themselves...
After you read this, realize the "Keynesian Flavor" refers to the core idea that government stimulus in a down turn beats austerity policy in a down turn. (Do you disagree?) And ask yourself now...Are we seeing a full Keyneisan policy of JOBS programs and Massive INfrasstructure spending, William? Like the alphabet soup programs under FDR? No...but Krugman would support that if he were in charge.
Again, William, Krugman is an outsider trying to keep his foot in the door...you should support him!
XMAS with Bitcoin, has been moved to the ZH bit-bucket, ... who could have guessed?
Follow the link, comment and don't let it die. Even thought the ZH god's have already sentenced this OP to death.
carlin401 has to be the sorriest motherfucking newly minted troll we've seen in a while. Add Geruda (cunt) and VD (vast-dom, a true social disease) and it's starting to look like a goddamn ZH pandemic. We must be doing something right but I'd feel better if the opposition was sending trolls that weren't total fucktards.
Agreed. We are under attack again.
Yep, us BTC pirates are under attack (/sarc) by the forces of good (/) , what's a fucking mother to do?
Just calling BS where I see it, and BTC is 100% BS, and when BZ7 post's BS we call it, ... nothing more, nothing less.
Nothing about BZ7, No personal attack in MY MIND, I just want to point out that yesterday and today he's fire's his gun's in the wrong direction.
You got it upside down pal. Firing at the Krugmoron is a bullseye.
This "joke" is really stale and worn out...just more posturing by Zero Hedge. Snark and Sneer to cover absolute ignorance to the issues of the day and the issues effecting people with regard to government spending and said spending priorities (ala tax-cuts uber alles for the Rich).
It would be so refreshing if someone at Zero Hedge could get a clue and put their finger on the hypocrisy in the rhetoric and the platitudes of corporate America and the politicians they own.
Why not cartoon/lampoon:
1) Fed MBS purchasing policy and the scum bags investment "community" this public debt is designed to help,
2) the Low inflation policy that places the value of money and hoarded wealth ahead of the devastated generation(s) of unemployed....
...and (DRUM ROLL)
3) how about a focus on the stinking elephant carcass in the room---> an entire generation+ now screwed by education spending cuts/subsidized job outsourcing/underemployment-unemployment/unpayable debts and renter serfdom in perpetuity?
IN other words, Zero Hedge... the Snark and Sneer may have seemed funny when some of us could pretend things were actually going to get better...but now those illusions are long gone, don't you think?
So grow a spine and get your mission update.
Start fighting for the little guy now...’cause that is you and your children.
well a little bit of progress has been made, BZ7 tell's us that he is a little guy, but only in words, in his actions, he speaks loud and clear as a step&fethit for the ruling-elite, ... so I guess only time well tell if BZ7 can redeem himself by throwing out some art that denigrates the fucker's and not the fuckee's, and certainly KRUGMAN is not a fucker, as he doesn't hold a gun like politicans or bankers.
I don't have to tell you anything.
There are enough people here, mostly "little guys," who know who I am and what I stand for.
You can waltz in here and waltz right out.
And I will thank you for not demeaning those people or insulting their intelligence.
So your play is to just try to hide behind your audience?
Billy, that response is INADEQUATE...and I suspect some in your audience (yep, the ones with a clue) take a measure of offense at your presumption.
No, if my play was to hide behind my audience I would not bother interacting with these kinds of idiots now would I. I would throw things up and go and do my thing on the high road. But those who know me know that is not my style at all. I have interacted considerably with everyone from the very beginning. Conversely, I feel no obligation to play whack a mole all day long. And I am not going to make busy work for myself putting up all the links and posts rehashing my well known positions on these matters for the benefit of interlopers and agit-propagandistas who are only interested in the agenda spoonfed by their masters.
It is all easy enough for anyone to to go and check for themselves. It is all out there in chronolgical order.
Carlin, you just got laid off from the Daily Kos right?
what a roach motel that site is, their answer to bush was obama. is there an echo in here? and the brownshirts would pummel you if even suggested Pelosi is really a butt munch. this is against the greater one party conspiracy, statism. and while bitcoin is a better fiat currency, its still a fiat currency at this point. so the fed now has some competition. as i understand it the BRIC is doing something to replace the IMF, which we all know is a global loan sharking operation, yawn. but any excuse for a troll.
That's funny, I would not belong to any club.
I'm an anarchist, but I hate all government equally. I hate all MSM bullshit, of where KOS is no fucking different than the AIPAC/BIS/IMF talking points posted here daily.
Just because I think Krugman likes people that makes me 'KOS', crazy. I know of KOS, but I can tell you I have never spent more than a nanosecond at the site.
I can't really think of any source that's worthwhile, albeit I do find Comedy Channel Stewart hilarious when he makes fun of left & right.
Nope, I just call them when I see them.
I understand all the lemmings here love BZ7, and I think he's good too, but he doesn't have a clear picture of GOOD/BAD in the real world, and somebody has to tell him WHO is GOOD and WHO is BAD, because sure as fuck doesn't know.
***What about you? Is there a fucking site on the internet that you like? Don't tell me ZH, we come here for the comments, the OP's here suck dick.
"Snark and Sneer to cover absolute ignorance to the issues of the day and the issues effecting people..."
Issues like maybe...this one?
Free your mind. There is no god. There is no "great plan". The universe does not care about humanity.
We are alone, Heart. It is up to us to create the kind of society and world we want to live in.
No one or "thing" or "God" will be riding to our rescue if we mess this planet up.
BTC typify's the FUCK rot in ZH, and even BZ7 proudly takes BTC's, ... see in their own fucking mind, they're going to come out on top of this.
Your right dude, all of us including BZ7 are the 'little guy' and were getting fucked, and it ain't funny no more, and so is KRUGMAN a little guy, that just happened to win a PHD and a nobel prize, and thus has a forum for his views. But he's one of the few fighting for the little guy.
BZ7 what I see is you selling your pictures for BTC's, and you think that someday your going to be rich, but guess what, your not going to be rich, at the end of the day you ain't going to have shit.
FIGHT for the little GUY fuck yes, cuz we are the little guy, and nobody is going to fight for us except us, and when you keep the gallows humor day in and day out of the little guy getting fucked, all the while collecting those BTC's by fucking little-guys, well your sympathy for the little guy wears fucking thin.
The New World Order if fucking brilliant because now even the kids with nothing but virtual currency think they're going to come out on top, ... like FEMA will even care when they come to get you, that you have BTC, ...
Actually, you are in troll territory now.
I do not accept BTC or barter in exchange for Fine Art Prints. And I challenge you to find anyone who will report otherwise. And if you think that little QR code on some of my images is a Bitcoin wallet, I suggest you embarass yourself by running it through a QR reader.
If you did your homework, you would see that I have taken flack on this site from the Bitcoiners in this regard in the past.
But you see, I am a little guy and my cash goes to food, rent and such and neither my landlord nor the gentleman who does my prints accept Bitcoins either.
So, respectfully, go fuck yourself.
22 Oct 2012 ... satirical artist William Banzai to accept bitcoin ...
So your telling me that you have REFUSED THEM? YES or NO?
I mean its all over the internet that you do accept them, but today you deny, so which is it?
I'll take your word that you don't but it sure seems the BTC community is forcing them upon you.
My position on accepting Bitcoins is not ideological as I indicated above. It is practical.
I do not accept Bitcoins in exchange for prints even though I am constantly badgered to do so. Yes badgered. And now I am being badgered in the other direction, which as far as I am concerned is an unwelcome pain in the ass.
Moreover, I am constantly asked to put Bitcoin and PayPal donation buttons on my Blog. Do you see any there?
Now I have many followers who are Bitcoin afficionados, and I am always happy to engage in deep 120 character discussions with them. But I think they know precisely where I am coming from since the flood of offers to send free Bitcoins has yet to arrive in Drygulch and is not expected anytime soon.
As I said when I started selling the prints, I have no interest in soliciting charity, Bitcoin or otherwise.
Those who want to support me are happy to do so by purchasing prints.
If there is anything I have come to appreciate fully during the past 4-5 years, mainstream wealth is a mirage.
True wealth is measured in human spirit and the good karma it draws and I am blessed to have plenty of the latter.
What bullshit. Who the fuck is DublinBrian and why should we believe he tweeted WB7? Big nothingburger like all your crap.
There is apparently someone on twitter called @DublinBrian. Here he is...
It looks to me like he likes silver and coaching football.
He has one tweet and eight followers, probably from his team, which I congratulate for winning.
ok, I will be the first to apologize yesterday like when you were wrong, but I can swear remembering that you take btc's for your art, having seen your ad's a million times,
I'll go back and look and see if I can find that you never asked for BTC's,
So to give you the benifit of the doubt, then why do you spend most of your time supporting the MAN, and not the little-man?
Dont say you don't its fucking obvious your biased to the status quo, you ain't that old, and your a good artist, and your living in HK, which is fucking expensive which leads me to believe you are a silver spoon brat, which would explain your support of the status quo,
Lastly, ... a 'fucking troll' and why would you not be a 'troll' in that case?
What happened to your fucking intelligence, you seem to have lost all today, as calling another a troll is like a complete act of desperation, I mean if I disgree with someone I tell them why, I don't call them 'names' and run away and hide.
Ok, so your a little guy that PAY's the RENT in HK, ... let's say that's true, but you still haven't told us why you protect that status quo.
Ok, apology ackowledged.
My position on Bitcoins, if you want to call it that, is as follows: very interested in the technology and aligned with the principle that we do not need a cartel of central banks and financial center intermdiaries.
If there is a Bitcoin bubble or mania, it is being fed by the accelerated erosion of confidence in the global money system. In this regard there is a twisted symbiotic relationship between the two. All the hype about money laundering and evil speculation is...hype by the people who fear the basic meme driving peer to peer currency.
I think the Bitcoin crowd now understand where I am coming from. I am willing to apply a certain amount of humor and satire to the Bitcoin mania, but the shysters who see it as an existential threat can fuck off as far as I am concerned because before you worry about Bitcoin buubles better to worry about the debt/fiat money inlfated asset bubbles.
The world economy will not implode as a reuslt of Bitcoiners.
WB7 - because I dont follow any MSM I wasnt aware that BTC was a big thing mainstream - from some comments I read apparently it has been a bit of a thing with the MSM now.
I have a slightly different take on BTC than yourself, and I think it would be good if you did accept BTC for your work - but its obviously up to you. It would be easier for folks like myself to be able to buy your works because I dont have a CC or use the other payment systems. Everything I own is either gold, silver, real estate or crypto currency.
You say the world wont explode because of BTC, and while that is correct on the face of it - because BTC is not the cause, the cause is manipulated everything, fraud, and counterfeit. However, BTC is probably going to be an easy exit for a lot of people from fiat land, and the exodus from fiat (whether into BTC, or gold, silver - or other tangibles) is going to accelerate the collapse of all things ponzi.
Crypto currency is here to stay, I honestly think BTC is unlikely to survive - mainly becaause it is not adpating fast enough to new innovations. But crypto's are part of the solution to the global fraud and tyranny - and they will continue to become more and more important. There will certainly be a bubble at some point, but I think it is not here yet. BTC is the biggest for the moment - but its got a number of problems, which if it is unable to resolve them - then it will be defeated by newer competitors who do resolve them.
Holders of crypto's in the main are well aware that it is risky, and for myself I am constantly looking at all new entrants to the crypto market trying to find one that is clearly a better BTC - and I am sure it wont be far away. Some of the innovations lately have been very good, all it takes is for someone to combine all the best innovations into a new currency and it has the potential to crush BTC.
The MSM are like trolls, when they show up at the party you know someone is getting worried.
I sincerely apologise for not being in a position to engage in PM barter or Bitcoin commerce with you.
If you read my comment below, it is in no way intended to disparage Bitcoins or PM.
I am just not set up for it.
When I send one print roughly half of the price is cash out of my pocket. The printer and the post office etc are not going to accept Bitcoins from me and going to exchange PM here retail is an ordeal I would not wish on anyone.
I do, however, appreciate the subversive nature of cryptocurrency and I respect the tenacity of the precious metal crowd. They seem to be at odds with each other, but I see them as aligned against the same "bankster cabal."
(With reference to my comment below, I do not consider your civil request to be badgering. You go into a store, either they accept cards or they don't and there is nothing wrong with asking)
If you are in the City of Angels in the Land of Smiles, drop me a note and we can have a Singh next time I am down there.
What is "stale and worn out" are our .govs and the bankers who control them.
NOPE, you adolescent snit's are still missing the POINT, your eating daily propaganda from the IMF that is labelled "ALT", bull fucking shit, and your so uneducated that you wouldn't know real "ALT NEWS" if it fucked you in the ASS.
Every fucking day, every fucking POST on the ZH forum is view point from the man, and all the main God's or players of ZH, actually think this shit is "ALTERNATIVE NEWS", its fucking NOT, ... everything on ZH is fucking NSA/IMF/CIA talking points, every fucking day, ... and virtually the commenters believe the fucking bullshit their fed every fucking day.
Take ten hours and consider.
ABCDEFG what a moron you've turned out to be...
All covered in one form or another in numerous other images and posts and videos...
The plight of the little guy is well covered, by this artist...something readily confirmed by the 4000+ images stored in my Flickr and numerous blog posts stored on this site. Do your research please.
Pretensions that things were going to get better, under the circumstances, was and continues to be wishful thinking engaged in by sheeple. If you think that is what this is all about, you are sadly mistaken.
Thank you for your input...
Now why not show us what you got?
You really think that? That you support the 'little guy'? You admitted yesterday you were wrong about RED/YELLOW in Thailand, you admitted you ain't got a clue about what the 'MANUFACTURED PROTEST' is about, but you write like a pontificating expert.
You assail KRUGMAN with dumb fucking pictures, but totally ignore the fact that he's the ONLY fucking MOFU in the USA establishment that gives a fuck about the POOR.
My guess is that your so full of your self that you don't have the self realization that most of your world VIEW is just fucking WRONG.
Get with BZ7, you got talent, but you need to fuck ID with the victim, and not the bully.
Krugman is a shill. Nothing more nothing less.
By his own admission, he had a late epiphany that there was a fundmental shift in the nature of "production". I'm not a PhD, but duh.....
All the bells and whistles about the elixir of monetary elasticity and spending stimulis and he has no clue what is happening on the street.
Who needs that?
If his intentions are noble his solutions are misplaced, because all we have had is the biggest transfer of wealth in history and it ain't trickling down to the little guy either.
The Commenter is right WB7, like yesterday arguing that RED in Thailand was the bad guy, and the good guy is yellow, my GOD your wrong, and then you had the ball's to admit you were wrong.
How many other things are you wrong about in your world view?
Here's the deal, great graphics funny as hell, and you right well, but when don't even know who the GOOD TEAM and the BAD TEAM is-is, that say's either your just an ignorant dumb ass, or a liar, ... sad to say,
I want to work together and eliminate the ROT, but you also must open your fucking EYE's turn off the DAILY IMF spitoon that you pass for information, and open your MIND to the fucking truth.
Can you dig it man?
We do love you.
Well, you are officially the most useless poster on ZH. The red/yellow campaigns in Thailand have been used in a variety of ways by players who are able to sell their story convincingly.
Throughout the whole process though, reds have been supporters of the Thaksins - and the Thaksins are globalists. So if you want a coherent narrative, its is this - red shirts have been majority controlled by the Thaksins, who are globalists.
So dont get all eager and try to claim victory yet about who is right and wrong. You seem to be a complete shill, supporting Krugman who is an utter piece of shit, and also trying to convince people the red shirts are 'good guys'. Getting elected by showering the starving and ignorant peasants with low cost freebies qualifies as stealing elections in my book.
ZH certainly gets it wrong at times about who the enemy is, especially in regard to Venezuela - but regardless of its failings it still brings some sources to light that are worth while reading.
So, while I see some errors occassionally - I have never seen you get it right carlin - you are a complete waste of space on ZH - go and shill for your masters someplace else.
Other than shear stupidity and/or vanity, there is no point in pretending otherwise when you make an error.
I am, however, pleased to report that having communicated on the red versus yellow matter with a Thai last night, the Thais themselves are now confused as to which side is aligned with whom and just want it all over with.
My main point yesterday stands. For working people trying to put bread on the table, it is all unwelcome noise.
I learned 20 years ago that the IMF is beholden to it's purse strings and no one else. The Thais learned this once the hard way and now they may well have to do it once again.
Well, look what I just recieved in the mail. It's from Hong Kong! Thank You William, it turned out great. I will be looking for some framing tomorrow. Once again, WB7 delivers as promised.
One last thing Bonsie. I've seen enough of your crap throughout my time here to recognize a dry well when one appears. The fact we are seeing only two pages of comments for your latest turdlet, as compared to your better days I take as confirmation of my constructive criticism. Without my help there may have only been one page.
Feel free to post some of your work and show us all how it's done, then!
If counting were I paid attention to I would count page views and print sales Missy.
According to the meter, one million plus on Flickr alone since late September.
Second X-Mas print batch shipped yesterday 35 total. Orders still arriving...
But truthfully, I am not obsessed with the numbers.
I am, however, honored by the support and well wishes I constantly receive from my audience here and elsewhere.
Yes indeed, Banzai7 is in a fine holiday mood.
And yes, it is obvious who it is who is not giving and certainly will not be gettin any.
Moreover, by virtue of your self delusory notion that views are drawn to Banzai7 by your inbred troll-foolery, I suggest you pay a visit to Dr Vinny Bombay for a head examination, pronto.
So in closing, with all undue respect Missy, take a fucking hissy hike... thou cockered plume-plucked foot-licker!
Two in one day, not bad...
Oh my word! People actually pay to buy your sh*t??!! How much do they pay?
