It appears BAC will be laying off more than the previously reported 30,000 bankers. If a banker comes to you and asks for a burger flipping job, just say're a banker!


It is slightly more than ironic is it not, that his Super Douchebag has brought such fine luck to UBS, the new European poster child for "ring fencing", which is Euro-speak for Glass Steagall on steroids.



I hope you have plenty of popcorn. The show will not be ending anytime soon.






And speaking of "ring fencing", why can't we ring fence this douche clown once and for all?


I noticed today that FOXCONN has almost finished a new iPad/iPhone factory in Brazil. Brazil has apparently partnered in the project. Quick question, why the fuck is it possible for for the US government to back a solar powered fiasco such as Solyndra, but not a factory to build APPL hardware?

I can predict with some measure of certainty that all the Solyndra litigation fees and investigations will wind up costing much more than Brazil's end of the new FOXCONN plant.


Aristarchan first brought this fine example of Obamoneering to my attention. He was good enough to let me know that he would be reporting me ;-)


Wick Pewwy, the answer to someone's prayer...

janus's picture


Do i have some shit to tell you:

so, i'm assumin you know that i was incarcerated for writing an 'in-your-face' type of paper (janus don't know how to otherwise compose) by the university where, i guess, i'm still 'technically' enrolled in the 'pre-med/phyical sciences' department.

but janus has 'friends'.  friends are valuable things.

janus also has two lawyers: a jew and a gentile.

the gentile is my primary representation.  he's an old friend.  he was an olymplic wrestler -- i was fair; but no where NEAR olympic caliber -- so he supports the sport locally.  what's more, he went UNDEFEATED at Princeton in the 192 weight division the entire four years on VARSITY!  he went to private military boarding school in swannee, TN before that (yup, he an episcopal; a religion we like to call Calvinist-envy). and then matriculated at Columbia Law (yes, the one in manhattan); and went undefeated in AAU wrestling his entire three years there.  in short, he's a damn good friend to have in times of trouble.

oh, and, i guess it's fair to say that the jew is even tougher.

dat's right bitchez!!!! janus is about to CO-lect!!! mutha fuckahs!!!! maybe i'll post the amount of the settlement in a few months -- just so everybody knows what i start this trading frenzy with....i'll let y'all watch me build my fortune (my atomic weapon -- le bomb neutron) right before your eyes!!! mmmwaahahahahahahaha!

suck on that, athiests!  bitchez!!! i told you that Jehovah has ALWAYS given janus everything he wants; i'm a spoiled fuckin baby!!! i've never cared for money before (it's like oscar wilde said: it's clear that God HATES money; just look at those to whom He gives it.) and now, i say, in the depths of fasting and prayer, that i need a bit of a boost with the ole money thing -- you know, Lord, to bring this nation to naught!  God always obliges His Elect.

Oh when the Saints/

come marchin in/

Oh when the Saints/

Oh i wanna be in that Number/

when the saints come marchin in!


Oh this school is SO fucked!!! they immediatetly shut down my email account, shortly before i was i didn't have copies.  They had to be fuckin COMPELLED to release them...wanna know why?  cause they show a letter from the university chief of police GUARENTEEING JANUS that he wasn't being trapped!!! i've got it in black and white bitchez!!!  but trap me they did.  wanna know something else?  well, it seems the timing on the warrent corresponds perfectly with the time i called the dean's office and security on the morning i was to 'chat and give my side of the story'.  it seems there may be some internal communication to that effect.  it seems that this is proof of what's called malicious prosecution!!! and, when the intent is to deny janus an education and give him a criminal record that would preclude his admission to ANY other university; well, BITCHEZ some muthah fuckin univesity is gonna PAY!!!

well, in response to the order to turn over my entire emaill file, they FINALLY got them to us with less than thirt minutes to spare.  i don't know if anything is doctored yet -- i don't actually have them myself.  but i have a keen memory; janus will remember if one single jot or titter is jostled.  if these slimy fuckers think they're gonna get away with this!!! oh, SNAP! 

burger flippin bitchez!!!

dat's right; go to fuckin war with janus!!! see who PREVAILS!!! you may win a battle; but janus, in the end, WILL WIN THE WAR!!!

i have already declared financial war on america (oh, everything will be nice and 'legal')...i'm looking forward to the day when it gets serious.  janus is gettin hungry!!!


here's one back at ya, Banzai!

God Bless ya, brutha!

that's some georgia pride right there...we luv our REM!!!

first we take manhattan/

then we take berlin (paris),


williambanzai7's picture

Just remember, friends over money ;-)

janus's picture

always and forever, my Friend.

when the Good Guys finally win; you will see, janus will give it all away.

money truly is corrupting; it IS a root of all evil.

KA-fuckin-BOOM! bitchez!!!

i'll soak it in and come and play.

but, DAMN, WildBill -- what's gotten into you!  Janus LOVES it.

chased our pleasures here/

dug our treasures there,


ps do any of you nerds know where janus can get him one of those keyboards that click when you mash a key?  i used to have one of those old-school ibm silver deals...but it was stolen.  i can't handle this cheap shitty no-clickin CRAP!!! i want to know when i've hit a letter; janus was trained to type on a REAL typewriter...and can do 60+ a min with one -- but these goddam computers!!! aaagh!!!

williambanzai7's picture

There is a new re-issue of the Commodore 64 keyboard. Check it out.

janus's picture


how could this day get any better...i'm not joking.  when i'm able to type with fluidity again; this world bettah watch the fuck out!

ps i've got somethign for ya.  this is janus's little bro; he lives deep in the city; he's an architect; and you and he are much alike.  nevertheless, some girl posted these songs of his on myspace.  this isn't his page, so he's not gonna, like, respond or anything...i'm just sayin.  anyway, tom gentry is an alias -- just sayin.  neither of us do this facbook/myspace shit -- we be readers...good ole fashioned books. 

so, like i was saying, he's lettin me put this up late at night so it don't get too much attention.  but, bein who you are, he was interested in your opinion.

yeah, we look a bit alike (this is the first time i've ever had shaggy hair and a beard, though; my lil brother's had his hair and beard like this since sophmore year at state), and i do LOVE this beard.  i think it's stayin for quite a while.  i guess, to be fair, i'm much better lookin; but he got the musical talent...i'm thinkin i got the short end of the stick.

i'll check and make sure the link works...i think he's got like six songs up or something...he's developed quite a following locally there in the big city.

i was just too stubborn to ever be governed/

by enforce insanity/

someone had to reach for the rising star/

He said it was up to Me,

Ju vil be re-educated Herr Banzai ;-)

williambanzai7's picture

Re-education is the next step.

There is an interesting book recently published called Mono Culture. We are already being educated. Check it out.

"There is an interesting book recently published called Mono Culture. We are already being educated."

And that's why I primarily read Scifi.

Everybody wants to sell their latest and greatest theory on what the fuck is happening today ( even if it isn't). Scifi wants to show what may happen tomorrow. I'd rather be prepared for the upswing instead of getting caught in the downswing. The downswing is always when the pop books tell us x is happening today. Took them a fuck of a long time to notice, took longer to collate and sell.

Besides Bob Dylan sang , a seeming eternity ago, " propaganda all is phony".

Check our George Orwell's "1984" for that glimpse into the future.

This is much better, closer to the mark.

I find Stross and Vinge have some interesting takes on the day after tomorrow.

nmewn's picture

"As human beings, we’ve always told stories: "stories about who we are, where we come from, and where we’re going." Now imagine that one of those stories is taking over the others, narrowing our diversity and creating a monoculture. Because of the rise of the economic story, six areas of your world — your work, your relationships with others and the environment, your community, your physical and spiritual health, your education, and your creativity — are changing, or have already changed, in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. And because how you think shapes how you act, the monoculture isn’t just changing your mind — it’s changing your life."

I will not submit. I've always had a problem with authority ;-)

That is very interesting. tnx for the link

Yes, complete with traitors and evil collaborators. When will the Greeks really wake up.

So many great things in this post.  Solyndra, taxpayers in Hell, Persian emperors with the Euro, too much fun.  Thanks for making me laugh.

And now, for our second event, Smiddy turns to the grape for solace from the daily grind.  Good night ZH.

Apparently dumb Americans can get paid nothing to pave roads, but not to make iPads.

Something is definitely wrong, and the people debating on TV have no clue what it is.

It's amazing that none of the media geniuses in the US have picked up on Bernankes latest bailout outing. There is a good reason why the Fed didi not make an announcement.

Inspired brilliance, WB7! Hard to pick a favorite, but "Elmo no like tickles" is classic.

I enlisted Elmo for two reasons, Elmo is cool, Elmo is an independent and Elmo's color matches the red on that ridiculous but scary website.

WB7, excellent as always.


Somebody better tell super gram that that earlier this week, a particular head of the IBC (independant banking commision) said it would be a good idea for retail banks to act as a circle-fence or something of that nature and not get to tied up with the masters of the universes.

It sounds like a dumb idea americans would come up with like Glass Stegal. But since the chairman was british it might be okay.

Reminds me of a couple months ago with the debt ceiling debtate and the credit downgrade downgrade. S&P (american) said "your political process can not sustain AAA rating on your soveriegn debt". To which the everybody on this world said S&P is a bunch of stupid americans.

But being the gentlemen that Fitch (british) are, they said. "We are not going to downgrade the US, but it is bizarre how you don't tax consumption in any meaningful way"

williambanzai7's picture

To this day that retard Gramm insists that all those roll backs, of regulations which worked perfectly fine for 50 years, have nothing to do with the ongoing fiasco.

The cast of clowns includes a healthy amount of reds and blues, which as far as I am concerned is prima facie evidence that the whole system has been corrupted.

"The cast of clowns includes a healthy amount of reds and blues, which as far as I am concerned is prima facie evidence that the whole system has been corrupted."  Couldn't have said it better myself. The system is corrupted.

But I do wonder about Phil Gramm as Superman. I always thought of him more in terms of a cockroach or some sort of burrowing parasite.

janus's picture


yup, prima facie (thank you for not writing prima facia...aaagh!!!), tis aword janus has been tossin around quite a bit lately.   lot's of other latin phrases too; old lawyers still know a bit of latin -- a few docs, too.

anyway, all this classical stuff and this latin and bill banzai and janus is all like -- fuckin MILTON ...goddam Paradise LOST!!! BITCHEZ!!! THE MASTERPIECE OF ALL TIME AND JANUNS HAS THUS FAR NEGLECTED IT????  HEAVEN FORFEND: THIS IS AN OMISSION WE MUST HASTILY AMEND!

yup, i'm at least gonna try to make sense of the original text.  it's been a LONG time.

better to reign in 'hell' than to serve in 'heaven' -- janus is starting to discover that this "hell" (poverty) that i've been programmed to quake and tremble at its very prospect, yes, this "hell" is quite a comfortable thing.  I haven't a worry in the WHOLE world. 

I had an excellent idea, as well.  during the process of discovery and whatnot, i found that there is a real NEED for what's called courriers.  you get to be your own boss and it's mostly cash.  think i'll be shopping for a new Cannondale or something soon.  and just when i thought i'd never start a business in america again.  i'm a gonna be a courrier!  until, that is, i BECOME a trader -- with my fat stack of whatever forex hole i happen to pop out of!!!

oh, shit, when janus gets him a bloomberg terminal!!! BITCHEZ, you're fuckin through!

again, from Lucifer:

better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven,
