A Dash Of Hair Transplant And Just Add Laughter

Tyler Durden's picture


We always said that the presidential race in a country in which 40% of spending on wars, entitlements, interest on said debt, etc. is funded by debt (purchased mostly by foreigners and monetized by the Fed), is moot, and is merely one big tragicomedy designed to evoke nothing but laughter (especially since it is the creditors who call the shots). Today, we see that at least Joe Biden got the memo.

And for some more laughs, this.

Damage control !  Shelby picks out Biden's more charming laugh moments .... repeats them in a loop .... with no context .... then all his stupid, rude moments  are on the cutting room floor .... this is putting lipstick on a pig !     The leftist cunt is publicly admitting they have a problem .... the spin is on !    At least Biden had a bit of charm .... the negro in chief had none to repeat in a video loop .... Obama just had this hurt, mean, dangerous nigger look .... like OJ had before he cut those lover's white throats and nicked their neckbones !     The other two were used to provide cover for Biden and give him some company ....

Just once, i'd like to see the two guys that are on the ballot get less votes than someone that is not. Not even because i'd particularly like the 3rd guy, but because it would send a message that we dont have to vote for the 2 that are spoon fed to us every 4 years. I'm done with that game myself.

and yet dennis kucinich ('08) and ron paul ('08 and '12) both ran for president.  had they gotten the most votes in the primaries they probably would have been nominees for president (and assassination).  of course given the near infinite cognitive dissonance produced by examining the obama campaign and subsequent administration, who knows what they would have done in office.

but the point is, there are choices but the vast majority of voters don't seem interested.  perhaps interesting times will make a difference.

gary johnson or jil stein are way better than obama or romney.

however if restricting oneself to the later two, i would think one has to go with romney as we know what obama would do as president. however romney's seemingly even more servile stance (if prone is a stance) toward the likud does give one pause.

One day, grasshopper, you may understand that the world is not black and white.  It is at least an infinite variety of gray, and occasionally color pops up in individual lives (e.g., a wedding day, the birth of a child, a baptism).  To vote is not to be one of the "sheeple" or "muppets."  To vote is to at least attempt to express ones views and interests in a nation (1) the vote is still relatively violence-free, and (2) may actually mean something, at least at the local level.  Even at the Presidential level, the choice is a real one, if only in terms of degrees.  Does anyone doubt that an Obama Presidency would lead to one of two outcomes?  Assuming a Republican-controlled House, at least, an Obama Presidency would mean either stalemate or a collapse by the Republican resistance and the implementation of still further Statism.  A Romney Presidency may not be all that you want, but is almost certain to be less aggressive in expanding government in our lives (even if the drones will still be deployed, even if debt will still rise, even if we risk still further wars).  We will pay less in federal taxes under Romney, we may be able to rid Obamacare from our lives, govt regulations will be reduced, or slowed, and, with any luck, the criminals running State, Justice, and DOD will be removed and replaced with honest, decent people (something I believe we really have not had for decades).  Grasshopper, no one with an ounce of brains who votes is voting for what you seem to think he is voting for.  Accept that someone is going to run this country.  Of the two possibilities at the top, it is clear that Romney, while far from ideal, is the lesser of two evils.  I would say that not voting, or voting for Obama, is the insane thing, unless, of course, sanity means support to accelerate the collapse and chaos.

you are one hell of an optimist, particularly " the criminals running State, Justice, and DOD will be removed and replaced with honest, decent people."  

romney's record against corruption in massachusetts does offer the tiniest sliver of hope for the possible prosecution of the banksters (like nixon to china).

clearly obama is a failure.

Exactly. Damn near everyone in here is thinking on the National level. Just like the Federal monster wants you to. Change happens at the local level, and quite frankly actually impacts your daily life. Bush, Obama = no real difference in my life. The local zoning board approving the building of a Target down the street, or the school board raising property taxes affects me directly.


VOTE for local at least.

If you can't stand wither of the main parties why don't you vote for one of the others? It's not just a 2 horse race. Here for example is a link to the Green Party candidate Jill Stein ( who seems a very reasonable alternitive. Here's the ending paragraphs from the link:



The Presidential Campaign is once again upon us. Every four years we're told don't waste your vote on a minor party candidate, you'll only be throwing your vote away.

The population of the United States is now over 300,000,000. Our country has 5 major TV broadcast networks, and hundreds more on cable or satellite; dozens of brands of toothpaste to choose from; countless phone companies, land-line, cable or VOIP to signup with. We can walk into any food store and choose from white bread, wheat bread, rye bread, onion bread, canadian white bread, jewish rye bread, pumpernickel, potato and jalapeño pepper bread, but we're expected to be content with only two political parties representing our interests?

Why must we continue to accept that only candidates such as Obama, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum and Paul have earned the right to run for President? Limiting the number of choices only limits our Democracy. If we're only supposed to vote for and support winners, than why in God's name is anyone still supporting the Chicago Cubs? Why are we willing to accept multiple choices in every aspect of our lives, but not in politics?

We cannot expect the government in Washington to consider the interests of ordinary citizens more important than corporate lobbyists if all we do is come to out to vote every four years. We must be willing to work for change at the local and state levels as well.

When you mark your ballot come November, are you going to vote for a candidate that readily admits he doesn't care for the poor; are you going to vote for a candidate that asked for, and received permission to order the assassination of American citizens? How can you?

This year, more than any ever, it's time to break the two-party / no choice option and Vote Green Party. Vote for the only political party that represents the best of what America once stood for. 



Check out the policies of the Green Party and I think you'll find yourself agreeing with a lot of them. (Disclaimer: I am a member of the Green Party of NZ)

Just because you have the right to vote .... doesn't mean your vote contributes to a positive outcome .... many would contribute by not voting and sharing their vote with all who do !   You can decide not not vote ....

I tried watching some of the action and when I tuned in the subject was Foreign Policy.  I was really beginning to enjoy watching Ryan stepping from one shit bucket to the next, but then Heir Moderator drags the conversation to "How has God informed your life?" which seemed ridiculous as I didn't get that any concept as big as God had ever informed anything in either of their lives.  They'll say He does, but I just doubt it.

Yeah, IF Ron Paul became a real, serious threat, he would get assassinated.

How could there be any significant opposition to the established trillionaire mass murders? There can only be insignficant opposition, or controlled opposition. The ONLY way that the established systems could be defeated is that they defeat themselves, by too much of their own "success" driving them mad, and thus they destroy themselves. After that, thereupon, for a short while, it may be possible for some realistic opposition to emerge, inside of that social chaos, until some new elite emerges, to take back control of their fake opposition.

Bitchin' article link ORI.

I just have to repost this part for all the link click challenged folks here.
They can't say they never saw it. As ZH Diogenes L said:

"It's possible to annihilate a lie simply by becoming aware of it"


"As documented in The Daily Bell Hoax?, blogger (and libertarian sympathizer) Lila Rajiva recently revealed that Ron Paul had a longtime partnership with James Dale Davidson, founder (with Lord William Rees-Mogg) of the financial conglomerate Agora Inc. Through the Agora network, Davidson, Rees-Mogg, and executives Bill Bonner and Addison Wiggin control most of the “hard-money” investment newsletters and “free-market” websites in the West, most of them ferociously pro-Paul."

"Although Davidson and Rees-Mogg apparently promote pseudo-libertarian solutions and “free-market” thinking, both are bona fide members of the highest elite circles. Davidson was likely a Rhodes scholar (although he does not publicize this information), a leading indicator of acceptance into elite British circles.

His partner Rees-Mogg was a longtime editor of the Times and a member of the governing council of the BBC. He is a member of the very select Roxburghe Club and apparently has ties to the Pilgrims Society. He also belongs to The Other Club, together with British and Zionist aristocrats such as the Cecils, Howards, Cavendishes, Rothschilds, and Oppenheimers. Rees-Mogg is also on the board of Rothschild’s St. James Place Capital.

Rees-Mogg and Davidson apparently work in tandem with mainstream British journalist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, whose father was a military intelligence officer and who has long been suspected of being an intelligence asset himself. It is surely no accident that Evans-Pritchard, known for his anti-Clinton crusade and hard-money sympathies, is one of the few mainstream journalists frequently cited by Wile’s Daily Bell, but very few readers would suspect that they are essentially partners.

Although Rees-Mogg is associated with the Libertarian movement, he would be more accurately described as a fascist. In an article entitled “It’s the Elites Who Matter”, published in the Times in January 1995, Rees-Mogg publicly called for limiting education to the top 5% of the population, creating an elite that would be ideally positioned to dominate the remaining 95% of the people after Rees-Mogg’s so-called “Information Revolution” would bring in a feudalist dystopia.

Soon after Davidson and Rees-Mogg published The Sovereign Individual in 1997, they founded the Sovereign Society, another Agora offshoot. Besides Davidson and Rees-Mogg, the Board of Advisors of the Sovereign Society has included over the years some of the best-known names in the “hard money” community, such as Doug Casey (a classmate of future president Clinton in Jesuit hotbed Georgetown University), CIA asset Mark Skousen (son of a FBI agent and nephew of J. Edgar Hoover’s assistant Cleon Skousen), perennial libertarian candidate Harry Browne, the Aden Sisters (Pamela and Mary-Ann), and Daily Bell advisor Ron Holland.

Casey also founded the Eris Society, a group of “free thinkers” who meet annually. Among the past speakers at Eris Society meetings, we find the names of Ron Paul, Skousen, Browne, Davidson, “Uncle” Richard Maybury, and investor Jim Rogers. Already in 1994, Casey, Davidson, and Skousen were collaborating on a presentation about “ERIS Island”, indicating that their partnership predates the foundation of the Sovereign Society.

Another Agora spin-off is the FreedomFest, the “world’s largest gathering of free minds”. While FreedomFest claims to be independent and “not affiliated with any organization or think-tank”, we find that it is coordinated by Skousen and Holland’s wife Tami, and that speakers associated with Agora are regularly invited. Perhaps surprisingly, Bilderberger Peter Thiel was featured as a keynote speaker in 2011."


Now, you can trace these corporations and people back to specific circles of power:

"On the conservative side the John Birch Society, the Liberty Lobby and its various descendants have been beating the anti-United Nations, anti-CFR, anti-Bilderberg and anti-global warming theory drum. Seeing how especially the John Birch Society was interlocked with Western Goals and the top-level American Security Council, does one really think the John Birchers or Liberty Lobby ever represented the "small man"? No, they didn't. They never went after the Kennedy assassination or 9/11, except when they could pin minor aspects on "liberals" or "zionists". Why? Maybe because MacArthur's fascist generals and Shackley's CIA colleagues were running these organizations, some of whom, including Shackley himself, having been tied to the assassination. You're not safe either in Great Britain. Look at Lord Monckton, a superhero in the conspiracy movement for his paper 35 Inconvenient Truths and willingness to challenge Al Gore's global warming theories in public. Just check out his family history I would say. It's a tale of Pilgrims Society and Knights of Malta members, of MI6 station chiefs, the mercenary firm Defence Systems Limited and government assassins as Stephan Kock."

A favorite of some around here, G. Edward Griffin is a long time JBSer...Eustace Mullins however was not a fan of the John Birch Society.


"The Rockefellers were also active on the 'right wing' front through their sponsorship of the John Birch Society. To enable Robert Welch, a 32nd degree Mason, to devote all of his time to the Society, Nelson Rockefeller purchased his family firm, the Welch Candy Company, from him at a handsome price. Welch chose the principal officers of the Society from his acquaintances at the Council on Foreign Relations. For years afterwards, American patriots were puzzled by the consistent inability of the John Birch Society to move forward on any of its well-advertised 'anti-Communist' goals. The fact that the Society had been set up at the behest of the backers of the world Communist revolution may have played some role in this development. Other patriots wondered why most American conservative writers, including the present writer, were steadily blacklisted by the Society for some thirty years. Despite thousands of requests from would-be book buyers, the Society refused to review or list any of my books. After several decades of futility, the Society was totally discredited by its own record." --Eustace Mullins, Murder By Injection, Staunton VA: National Council for Medical Research, 1988: 340-1

We are on a path that is unsustainable and has been accelerateed in the past 4 years like no other time in world history.

Obama fans don't care - they feel good cause their man is in and the checks are coming - fuck how they are coming - they aren't concerned.

It's the same guy. TPTB "approve" both candidates, they will both be a good middle manager that can take orders, That is why the policies have been the same for the last decade or so. Under Bush, the people and big banks got their checks, under Obama the people and banks still get their checks, under the next president it will be the same if he is Red or Blue.

The control mechanism is the "if you don't vote Red or Blue, your vote is wasted".

If this thing is going to unravel (and that's the high probability bet, IMHO), whoever is "elected" in Nov faces the distinct probability of being a modern day Herbert Hoover.

Much as the Republicans deserve such a fate for all their craven boot licking, the Democrats perhaps deserve it more.  For them it will be the "bloody shirt" all over again.  Either way it turns out, could not happen to a nicer bunch of sociopaths.

A vote for the lesser of 2 evils, is still a vote for evil.  Dont sanction evil.  Dont vote.

In my opinion, not that it is worth much, your statement is not helping matters much.  I appreciate your efforts as I am an elected GOP "officer" of the libertarian persuasion.  I can certainly believe that that you are not popular.  "We" started in 2008 for Ron Paul, and many of us lost our good paying, health, dental and the rest coverage paying jobs.  I was the last to lose mine last May because I would not give up.(do have another decent payer now though)

We took over an entire Senate District Executive Committee in 2009 and were the only ones in the state to do so.  I took over Treasury and found..."Issues".  We made people angry.  Long story but you can imagine...

Just so you know CL17, I am going to help out the Classical Liberal SD co-chair of that earlier commitee tomorrow who finds himself in some financial trouble right now.  It's going to be a trip to Costco.  I didn't forget him and I have to make a special trip to do it.  I will make sure that he and his family have the basic needs.  I am probably even going to buy their kids some candy.

One never knows when the shit will hit the fan.  I will pay for what his family needs this time.  This is our libertarian way of "socialism".  Trust me, he HATES it and really didn't even technically ask me.  I know what I have to do.

I am going to take care of people who believe in liberty as best I can and I sure as hell hope you will too.

I can assure you Dr. E, that my candidate posesses all of the qualities that we are looking for.  Humor me and please do at least start to read the link I first posted on this thread regarding AJN.  It is extremely interesting and informative.  Since you are a leader here on ZH, I would suggest that you consider leading.

You stated the following:

"Retards are too stupid to realize that it's all political theater, and both sides are picking their pockets. We have a bunch of ignorant people in this country."

I agree, but what is the solution?  Reading is relatively low cost in capital output to obtain pertinent information.

I will state the following:  Most people are too lazy to read anything more than a clever one liner.

"The French or English can turn out an unsatisfactory public servant at any time. They do not have to wait four years; they can do it in four hours. They have the political machinery for doing that, and we have not; if we had, Mr. Hoover would probably have gone out of office at least two years and a half ago. My point is that people who have no machinery for making their political will immediately effective cannot reasonably be expected to take much interest in a mere hopeful registration of what they want."

So far neither of the two sides being presented have advocated smaller government, restoration of liberties or an actual strong dollar policy that restores purchasing power, something I'd hoped to see coming out of Ron Paul's obvious popularity and captivation of the younger generations.  Surely these people want those votes?

Government simply does not belong in the health care business or college and home loan businesses.  College costs and medical costs have both skyrocketed since government got involved and created dependents on "that government check" coming in.
