Geithner Out Before End Of January

Tyler Durden's picture


We are sad to bring you the tragic news that Tim "TuboTax" Geithner, who has long made clear his plans to leave some time in early 2012, will be out before March, and in fact before the end of January as it turns out. From Bloomberg:


We are also confident readers will somehow be able to overcome the unprecedented sadness at this particular rat's departure from the Titanic, metaphorically speaking of course.

And while Timmy's replacement (assuming it is of the Homo Sapiens genus and species) is still unknown, we know what some of the prospects think about serving the public:

American Express Kenneth Chenault had been approached for job, has indicated he isn’t interested


Administration officials had approached American Express Co. Chief Executive Officer Kenneth Chenault about joining Obama’s second-term cabinet, possibly as Treasury secretary. Chenault isn’t interested in leaving his private sector job, according to a spokesman.

Lets not get too excited.  Geithner is a regular at the CFR so he will still be pulling strings, or getting his strings pulled.

The tax code is the anti-christ. It has to be everything Christ was not. Timmay is not smart enough to run with the "elite" so they put him where he belongs. Haphazzard, in your face, incompetent adminitration of their rusty spoon. He also moon lights on southpark with his band "lords of the underworld"

Farewell Ode to Tiny Timmah (Tiny Dancer)


Blue skies, Bennay

Debt pimp, Timmay

Schem-sters for the man.


Prices high,

Debt to the sky,

To print is the ponzi plan.


Larry Summers,

massage the numbers,

marking market to a sham.


Now it hits me,

the fraud economy,

toilet paper in my hand...


Barry freaks, out in the streets,

Another ticket sent by God,

No turning back, we just laugh

The price for Ipad's not that bad.


Awoken man, he makes a stand

In an internet forum

Speaking on, right and wrong

The story's old news for some


But oh how I feel so blue

Lying here, in IOU's

Cursing you, but you can't hear me

When I say slowly, but LOUDLY


F' me harder, tiny Tim-mah

Countless hedge-funds hit the highway

Wash the world in worthless pap-ah

Another busy day, today...

Time for more Quotes For Times of Financial Instability:


“Bankers: Pillars of society who are going to hell if there is a God and He has been accurately quoted.” - John Ralston Saul

“The tendency to occultism is a symptom of regression in consciousness. The veiled tendency of society towards disaster lulls its victims in a false revelation, with a hallucinated phenomenon. In vain they hope in its fragmented blatancy to look their total doom in the eye and withstand it. The offal of the phenomenal world becomes, to sick consciousness, the mundus intelligibilis.” - Theodor Adorno, Minima Moralia: Reflections From Damaged Life

“Tribe follows tribe, and nation follows nation, like the waves of the sea. It is the order of nature, and regret is useless. Your time of decay may be distant, but it will surely come, for even the White Man whose God walked and talked with him as friend to friend, cannot be exempt from the common destiny. We may be brothers after all. We will see.” – Chief Seattle

"If you have to go to jail, go ahead and go, for you will not be alone." -Reverend Bernice King

“The wise are instructed by reason; ordinary minds by experience; the stupid, by necessity; and brutes by instinct.”— Cicero

"It's wise to be a nonperson, as far as the State is concerned, as far as possible" ~ Doug Casey

“People in a hurry cannot feel.” – Alan Watts

"Our era has become one of spectacular polarization, with folly multiplying on every hand. That is the way empires crumble: they are taken over by looter elites, who sooner or later cause collapse. But then new games become possible… There is beauty in weathered and unpainted wood, in orchards overgrown, even in abandoned cars being incorporated into the earth. Let us learn,  like the Forest Service sometimes does, to put unwise or unneeded roads 'to bed,' help a little in the healing of the natural contours, the re-vegetation by native plants. Let us embrace decay, for it is the source of all new life and growth." - Ernest Callenbach

“We talk of the Turks and abhor the cannibals; but may not some of them go to heaven before some of us? We may have civilized bodies and yet barbarous souls. We are blind to the real sights of this world; deaf to its voices; and dead to its death.” - Herman Melville

"Hell is truth seen too late." – Thomas Hobbes

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed… If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government. - Alexander Hamilton

"The cost of maintaining the pretense is straightforward: continued deterioration in the moribund status quo; more and more people, young and old, left behind; entire communities in distress; places destroyed by natural disasters abandoned rather than rebuilt; more and more people going after fewer and fewer resources that are still being made available to those in need. It is a rolling collapse affecting one person, one family, one community at a time. It’s what we have been seeing since 2008, and there is no reason to think that this will not continue for a while yet." – Dimitry Orlov
