Wednesday Humor: Career Advice (From Hank Paulson)

Tyler Durden's picture

We can only imagine the lines around the block in readiness for this Chicago Booth lecture "Career Advice From Hank Paulson" urging students not to obsess about positioning themselves for the top job - or perhaps, as we might sub-title it, "Don't obsess - your efforts to make $478m tax-free like me are completely futile."


"When you’re making a decision in a real crisis, you don’t worry about public criticism."



What advice do you think the 'honorable' former Treasury Secretary might have in his private moments?

His name was Henry Paulson! His name was Henry Paulson!...

Fuck Hank Paulson.  I am suprised he is out in public.  He should be banned to Jamie Dimon's island bug out location.  On second thought, I will defer to LongSoupLine for a fitting punishment.

El Hosel's picture

He should be in a very small cell with J.D. for a very longtime, maybe flip a coin and let one eat the other Alfred Packer style.

Drag a hundred dollar bill through Hyde Park and you never know what you will find.


(oh yeah..  Obama.. Ayers.. now this guy. I guess Kyle was slumming last week)

You can't hide - we WILL find you.

And we are NOT "tax paying units" asshole.

We WILL find you. RUN!

Good to know Paulson is still hard at work destroying America.  No doubt he's trying to move more American jobs to China, cut carbon in America while burying China in pollution, figuring out how to get a one child policy implemented in America (excluding the dElites like himself, of course), figuring out how to establish the international banking cartel he bows to set up as global authoritarian rulers.

At least this demon is consistent.

Until the average American gets their head out of their throat (that far up their *ss), this kind of filth still feel comfortable talking to students.

If I die of old age, these fuckers - Paulson, Dimon, Geithner, Soros, Buffet - are going to pass before me. My bucket list includes pissing on each of their graves. If no one's watching, I'll take a dump as well.

But that is only in death does he get his name back.

I suppose it would be asking too much to see him arrested on stage.

"Throw money at DC and they will be your bitch, show your superiors on wall street that you will ass rape your clients at will and you will rise up the corporate ladder like a phoenix of hell fire."

Dagny Taggart's picture

During the crisis, Paulson sometimes was criticized for shifting his tactics, but more recent assessments have credited the former Treasury Secretary with heading off catastrophic damage to the economy.

They left out: ... heading off catastrophic damage to the economy, resulting in kicking the can to someone else's watch and facilitating what will become known as the largest financial implosion ever experienced on this mudball.

There... fixed it for you.

Dear Hank,

Die in a fire.


Those US Citizens who aren't banksters

Hank looks like he's spent his entire life puckering up for a thirteen minute long treble C on the trombone

I hate that snake oil salesman. one day a snake will bite him and he will diea slow death.

One word: surplus.

The Invisible Foot's picture

How did he make that much you say? Easy, he just sold his country to the FED/WALL STREET.

Ned Zeppelin's picture

A phenomenal, world class piece of shit, deserving only of the scorn of all honest men. Perhaps, someday, justice will be done.

"When you’re making a decision in a real crisis, you don’t worry about public criticism."

That's what I tried to tell my wife when she found out I spent the rent money on smokes and booze....

The Big Ching-aso's picture

I don't know why but this reminds me of something......


"It's easy to grin when your ship comes in

and you've got the stock market beat.

But the man worthwhile is the man who can smile

when his shorts are too tight in the seat."

[laughs]  "Ok, pookie.   Do the honors."

Wrong Paulson there, Yen. 

Or IS it?!?!!


Yen Cross's picture

   I'm right fellas. They are two(Paulsons) peas in a pod though.

fallst's picture

Wrong Paulson...This is John Paulson, architect of the Magnatarian "lets create toxic waste and short it".


Seasmoke's picture

Snap this stuttering fuckers other 9 fingers and than clawback that tax free HALF BILLION. Finally Pay per view him in a fight to the death cage against Corzine.

machineh's picture

That's not sporting -- Paulson would break Corzine's pencil neck in the first five seconds.

I say feed them both to the lions.

They are born, raised by psychopaths, go out into the world and destroy the quality of life of decent, hard-working people, then die. We could have done without that.

One moment longer with that is too long... There must be "the solution."

100 green candles for that post! We should've taken out their parents.

I wonder if he stutters like this when the kiddies ask him questions?

I have more respect for a day old piece of dogshit...

NoDebt's picture

Agreed.  Pinching a loaf is an honest day's work, at least.  What Hank did.... not so much.

"Um, we need like a Trillion dollars by Thursday or we're all dead.  No, seriously."

FEDbuster's picture

That line will work a few more times, then it won't.  Looks like the Fed's QE has taken the place of government bailouts, in fact the Fed's QE is bailing out the government. 

DHS is preparing for the day it all goes down, are you?

Hank's greatest triumph: Disproving the maxim You never negotiate with terrorists.

Chicago - you know people get shot there every minute. Perfect gun control is hitting your target.

The movie version of Hanky was much better than the real thing!

LeisureSmith's picture

Red face, wild eyes, swetty, hands shaking, voice trembeling, looking guilty and lying his ass off. you know... Hank Paulson.

What advice do you think the 'dis-honorable' former Treasury Secretary might have in his private moments?

Goldman Sachs scumbag ,Wank Paulson!!!

The gov't will re-seed the disillusioned working class with new immigrants for a few years while the Fed prints into 2018.  Stop looking for justice; I am sure the odds are higher for going to prison if you post on zerohedge versus getting convicted of stealing several generations of wealth because you think your Harvard degree makes your ideas "special".   Harvard seems to represent a kind of hive of fraud-producing monsters.

The time when that occurs nobody will want to live in the US. Fear the government and you have tyranny.

Talk to people whom have lived in communism where Soviet Soldiers bust into the homes and raped the women. People wanted to escape the country in droves. It's when there are border guards to keep people in the country. Travel outside the country is prohibited unless there's a special reason.
