Nice to see Obama's Cabinet and the Federal Reserve Board all in one photo. Chairman Bernanke bucked the trend and is in the "Little Drummer Boy" suit in the bottom left in light of the coming holiday season.

And in other news, leaders of the Chinese Communist Party donned western style business attire and assembled on a festive red and green stage to celebrate the Christmas holiday and display their relaxed and friendly disposition to the formerly free west.

The Chinese Constitution (yes, they have one) actually sounds pretty good if you read it fast. Everything is allowed as long as it doesn't harm "The People".

Me? Just trying to stay chilled and waiting patiently for this shitshow to come crashing down. Not long to go now, I reckon, the cracks are widening. But yeah, I stay low on the radar these most of the "old timers" it seems. Also, discussions tend to be less in-depth than they once were. Now, its like they are all tweets. I think I'm sounding jaded, perhaps I am!

Communist China didn’t build that! It appears that expatriate American industrial might is alive and well.
