THE DOG FACED MAN (w/Limerick)



Step right up folks if you dare

It costs just a dollar per stare

As part of the show

You watch his face grow

Each billion he prints grows new hair


The Limerick King







With a wave of Magnifico's wand

I bought me a new Spanish bond

I traded some trash

For low interest cash

I can't figure out who got conned!


The Limerick King



 TROIKA 4-1-9 (w/Limerick)


The Troika scam's daring and bold

Their plan is about to unfold

The monkey's in shock

He knows it's a crock

They're going to steal all the PIIGS gold!












The Gasoline Gremlin is lurking
Higher the prices he's jerking
What's this about?
There is no more doubt
The new propaganda is working

The Limerick King







GEITHNER (Circa 2019)


Geithner is dressed like a slob

This bozo has found a new job

He's in it, to win it

There's one born each minute

He's found some new suckers to rob!


The Limerick King

What always does my head in is that the world needs such shit to happen that genius such as WB7 finds plenty of compost which to bloom from. If the powers that be were perfect, where's the fun? Where's the rebellion? Counterculture relies on our imperfect grasping. Its a friendly reminder we can do better.

Can't figure out what the stuff is all over Europe in the satellite one. Licorice? I'm sure it is obvious but i'm having a moment.

Jesus, man, you dragged Pastor Jones out of a trunk for that Koran burning PSA.  Hats off, that is some encyclopedic shit right there.

Regarding the translation of Youcef's court conviction from the original Farsi(the original document is not available)one must consider the source.


Amir-Abbas Fakhravar [1] (Persian: ???? ???? ??????‎, Amir-Abb?s Fakhr-?var, also known as Siavash (Persian: ?????), born 6 July 1975 in Tehran) is an Iranian jailed dissident, award winning writer, blogger, and the recipient of the prestigious Annie Taylor Journalism Award. He is the Secretary General of the Confederation of Iranian Students and President of the Iranian Freedom Institute in Washington, D.C.

In January 2004, he was taken from Qasr prison to a military detention center named "125" outside the official prison system and controlled by the Islamic Republic Revolutionary Guards,[3] for interrogation about alleged links with an opposition political organization called Freedom Movement of Iran (Persian: Jonbesh-e Azadi-ye Iraniyan).

His treatment in this detention center have been described as the first known example of white torture in Iran by Amnesty International.[4][5] His conditions were described by Amnesty International as:

“ His cell there had no windows, and was entirely coloured creamy white, as were his clothes. At meal times, he was reportedly given white rice on white, disposable paper plates and if he needed to use the toilet, he had to put a white slip of paper under the door of the cell to alert guards, who reportedly had footwear designed to muffle any sound. He was forbidden to speak to anyone. Amnesty International has been told that "the silence is deafening".[6]

No one in Iran knows him as a leader of Iranian opposition.

In late April 2006, he arrived in the United States from Dubai where he had been greeted by Richard Perle who interrupted his trip to central Asia in order to meet Fakhravar in a hotel.[7] They had been in touch through a contact since 2003.[7] Their meeting in Dubai was recorded and some of it is included in a documentary titled "The Case for War: In Defense of Freedom".[8][9]

Since his arrival, he has called for a unified Iranian opposition to the Islamic government, in order to bring regime change in Iran.[7] He has had several meetings with American officials from the Pentagon to the State Department, as well as with Vice President Dick Cheney.[10]

He also appeared on a hearing titled "Iran's Nuclear Impasse: Next Steps" in July 2006 held by U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs representing Independent student movement, along with Michael Ledeen (American Enterprise Institute), Ilan Berman (American Foreign Policy Council), Ray Takehy (Council on Foreign Relations) and Jim Walsh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology),[11][12] where he called the Iranian reform movement a "dead end" and advocated regime change.[13] In his speech he also condemned military efforts against in Iran:

On military efforts, he said, "No one wants war, neither we nor you. Our greatest efforts have been focusing on own people and forces within our boundaries, without war, to uproot the zealot mullahs governing our country and replace them with a secular, democratic government which respects human rights and freedom."[13][14]

He has met with President George W. Bush and senior administrators in the State Department and The Pentagon and also with American experts and analysts on Iran, like professor Bernard Lewis and others.[15]

In 2006, he made this statement: "Help us to uproot the Iranian regime. Believe in us. Believe that a secular democratic government in Iran will be the United States' best ally and friend."[16]

"He's a unifying figure. He's strong physically and psychologically. I think he's extraordinarily smart. He's one of the few Iranian opposition figures I've met who can think through the way Westerners look at Iran and help them understand." [17]


Again the original court documents which the Iranian government assert contain charges of rape might help to clear the air. For my part I have little trust in any of the parties named above including Iran.


For those of you at DHS let me assure you that "white torture" would yield the best results in my case.

Perhaps da Bernank will finally have a little competition, or be able to outsource his fiat fiasco to the North Koreans.  Made in USA, ha.

Old business. But before it escapes down the memory hole.

Still no charges against Gibson, the property stolen is still stolen...

"Back in August, the federal government’s raid on Gibson Guitars made huge news.  The raid by armed agents was ostensibly conducted because Gibson was illegally using rare, restricted woods from India and Madagascar to make its guitars… even though nobody in India or Madagascar filed any complaints against them.  This was justified on the grounds that the Lacey Act allows the United States government to prosecute importers for violating foreign laws, whether or not the foreign government in question believes a violation has occurred.

Gibson employees were told by the invading federal agents that they could be looking at up to five years of jail time for whatever the hell they were supposedly guilty of.  (The agents in question, clad in body armor and lugging heavy weapons, were from the Fish and Wildlife Service.)  The befuddled CEO of the company, Henry Juszkiewicz, was a committed conservationist who once sat upon the board of the Rainforest Alliance, although he resigned after a previous raid in 2009, because he said he didn’t want to cause trouble for the group."

And yes, they stole Gibson's property without due process of law.

I think I did Geithner as WW;-)

You da man!

The canker sore is a nice touch, no telling where she got that. Another legislative sweetner for Senator Ben Nelson's vote perhaps.

Speaking of I came across the Gibson guitar update and thought I'd share it with you. Usually, the contraband is seized and the perp arrested & charged immediately.

But seeing as how Michelle engaged in "international illegal wood trafficking" as well, by giving "illegal wood products" to the President of France's wife, perhaps they're in a bit of a quandary over just what the "charge" should be.

Would it be practicing diplomacy without a license or "international illegal wood trafficking"? The answer to this vexing question may require some scholarly research or some blue ribbon panel or perhaps it's own breakout committie ;-)

But clearly, the question will involve numerous departments & agencies, with many man hours involved, for our government to come up with the correct "charge" that absolves one party completely...yet forces another to expend massive amounts of money to defend against essentially the same charge.

It does make one wonder about the time limits of people sufferring indiginities & injustice themselves and observing them against others.

   Economic Demolition Derby

Wakanda's picture

Screeching rubber, tearing metal, fumes, smoke, blood, broken bones, cries of anguish, calls to victory, sexual favors, backroom deals, lying, cheating, smirking, power obsessed psychopaths...

Is it?:

A.   Demolition Derby

B.   Republican National Convention

C.   Democratic National Convention

D.   The OWSers rioting outside either convention

E.   Any given Walmart parking lot on Friday night

F.    The capitol city of whatever country the US/NATO is invading this month

G.   My family reunion

H.   All of the above

Damn BB7 (BillyBanzai7!) how you come up with this stuff is nothing short of incredible.  The political cartoons in the newspapers pale in comparison.  Thanks for the belly laugh at the end of a tough mfcking day crunching a shtld of numbers (no, not Wall Street related, we make real products!).


STP (Stop The Pilfering!)

I look at the political cartoons now and then. It's pretty boring. That is what the MSM has done to the cartoon art.

And thank you for making real things.

Oh yeah, the inflation enemas are hysterical...can you send a "FLEET" of them to the Obama (soetero) administration. Economic constipation has reached toxic levels for this fraudville act of non-leadership

Thank you WB7, and LK too.

You send a peaceful vibe with all your humorous energies,

transmuting the disgusting horror to the tragic comedy it is.

Gas Gremlin and people in line circa 1970's:  I bought gas at that station and shopped at the Radio Shack in the distance; two blocks south of Rockville Pike if I remember right (Maryland). 

The ironic thing is that mileage hasn't changed that much.  The cars are safer but the mileage isn't really any better.  Instead of Caprice V8 sedans people are driving V8 trucks or SUV's that are usually empty, and guzzling just as much gas but driven for status. 

The Dog Faced Man will forever deny that TRILLION$ of FED printing and liquidity has anything to do with higher commodity prices, WOOF!

williambanzai7's picture

I used to love Radio Shack, Wall Street ruined that too.

I always get a kick when readers report where a picture was taken.
