False bravado..... shaky lines on big letters. He is playing way above his game.

If you see the signatures of people like Elvis, who "knew" they were stars, there is a boldness and bigness/penache to their signatures.

This is a pretenders signature. 

Plus his real name is Mu-Barak Husein O'sorterobamao.....

Incdentally, Al-buraq, from which the name is derived, was the prophet's horse on his ride to the seventh heaven... and means lightening.

It's ALL in the name...

Al-Bur?q (Arabic???????‎ al-Bur?q "lightning") is a mythological steed, described as a creature from the heavens which transported theprophets. The most commonly told story is how in the 7th century, Al-Buraq carried the Islamic prophet Muhammad from Mecca toJerusalem and back during the Isra and Mi'raj or "Night Journey", which is the title of one of the chapters (sura), Al-Isra, of the Quran.

Bill Hicks was one of the most underrated comedian-philosophers of all time, IMO. He was very much in the George Carlin mold, but Hicks was far and away the one comedian to draw attention to the diabolical forces of marketing & advertising, and their devastating effects on society.

Anyone who is familiar with Big Pharma's complex and evil marketing strategy that is referred to as "astroturfing" understands how purposefully evil the advertising industry is.

Sorry to burst you bubble but this expression has been around for a very long time, dates back to the 18 th century and is called "Pigeon Chess".... I doubt Putin said this... 

The expression reintroduced  in 2005

Pigeon chess" or "like playing chess with a pigeon" is a figure of speech originating from a comment made in March 2005 on Amazon by Scott D. Weitzenhoffer[1] regarding Eugenie Scott's book Evolution Vs. Creationism: An introduction:

Debating creationists on the topic of evolution is rather like trying to play chess with a pigeon — it knocks the pieces over, craps on the board, and flies back to its flock to claim victory.

"PANEM ET CIRCENSES"

Thank you for that! Didn't know the latin phrase for it. DIY bumper stickers in mind.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bread_and_circuses

"Bread and circuses" (or bread and games) (from Latin: panem et circenses) is a metaphor for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace, as an offered "palliative." Juvenal decried it as a simplistic motivation of common people. The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the common man.

Perfect!

According to http://putroperdana.wordpress.com/2011/07/09/traits-in-handwriting/ , inflated, very tall capitals means an arrogant, conceited personality. Also note the length of the "a" at the end of his last name. If word or name endings are long, it denotes an angry person. In addition, if there is a line drawn through the signers name, like the "O" in Obama, it could mean someone who is self critical, unhappy and a person who has something they do not wish to reveal about themselves.

Well obviously conditions are SO much different now....since Chalky is president we obviously no longer have a failure of leadership, it's perfect now, so the coast is clear to raise the debt limit to whatever!

OK - given there is "only" $4 T in public Treasury debt 1 yr and longer...and given the Fed can only buy 70% of every specific Treasury issuance, this means there is "only" $2.8 T available for the Fed to buy - of which they already own $2.2 T (since they own no debt 1yr and less).  So, in less than 1yr @ current QE rate Fed will own all new and existing Treasury Bills / Bonds / TIPS up to their 70% limit and there will in effect never be any interest rate risk to the Federal gov...unless no one wants to own even the other 30% the Fed can't buy...or the Fed subsequently amend their rules to allow an 80% or 90% or 100% Fed ownership of all Bills and Bonds. 

That means all the risk will be in the $7 T worth of public debt notes if somebodies decide to simply stop rolling (of which almost all $5 T of foreign held debt falls)...all the excitement is in the front end now.  The Fed owns none but could own $7T in short order???  Would that also be known as hyperinflation???

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, “What are all those clocks?”

St. Peter answered, “Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move.”

“Oh,” said the man, “whose clock is that?”

“That’s Mother Teresa’s. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.”

“Incredible,” said the man.

“That’s Abraham Lincoln’s clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life,” St. Peter informed him.

“Where’s Obama’s clock?”

“His clock is in Jesus’s office. He’s using it as a ceiling fan.”

http://www.redstate.com/alanjoelny/2013/01/15/full-text-of-obamas-speech...

March 16, 2006 CONGRESSIONAL RECORD—SENATE S2237-2238:

“Mr. OBAMA. Mr. President, I rise today to talk about America’s debt problem.

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to
$8.6 trillion. That is ‘‘trillion’’ with a ‘‘T.’’ That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion.

Numbers that large are sometimes hard to understand. Some people may wonder why they matter. Here is why: This year, the Federal Government will spend $220 billion on interest. That is more money to pay interest on our national debt than we’ll spend on Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. That is more money to pay interest on our debt this year than we will spend on education, homeland security, transportation, and veterans benefits combined. It is more money in one year than we are likely to spend to rebuild the devastated gulf coast in a way that honors the best of America.

And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and
health security they have counted on.

Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities. Instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans—a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies.

But we are not doing that. Despite repeated efforts by Senators CONRAD and FEINGOLD, the Senate continues to reject a return to the commonsense Pay-go rules that used to apply. Previously, Pay-go rules applied both to increases in mandatory spending and
to tax cuts. The Senate had to abide by the commonsense budgeting principle of balancing expenses and revenues. Unfortunately, the principle was abandoned, and now the demands of budget discipline apply only to spending.

As a result, tax breaks have not been paid for by reductions in Federal spending, and thus the only way to pay for them has been to increase our deficit to historically high levels and borrow more and more money. Now we have to pay for those tax breaks plus
the cost of borrowing for them. Instead of reducing the deficit, as some people claimed, the fiscal policies of this administration and its allies in Congress will add more than $600 million in debt for each of the next 5 years.

That is why I will once again cosponsor the Pay-go amendment and continue to hope that my colleagues will return to a smart rule that has worked in the past and can work again.

Our debt also matters internationally. My friend, the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, likes to remind us that it took 42 Presidents 224 years to run up only $1 trillion of foreign-held debt. This administration did more than that in just 5 years. Now, there is nothing wrong with borrowing from foreign countries. But we must remember that the more we depend on foreign nations to lend us money, the more our economic security is tied to the whims of foreign leaders whose interests might not be aligned with ours.

Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘‘the buck stops here.’’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit”

In all fairness, he has amended his position.
He started out as no negotiations
And is now at No negotiations until I get everything I want.

Which in truth means no negotiations except he is showing willingness to negotiate after he gets everything he wants and therefore needs no negotiations since he got everything he wanted without negotiations pre-negotiated.   
Sorta like I was for it until I was against it....
