It's the whole thing that they have no brain that worries me.

 

The bad news? I got a new Hugo Boss Suit. The Good new? I shat myself in it.

Is "polish the retard helmet" slang for wanking off?

Anything which threatens monetary heroin is considered bad.  So if America had full employment, the bankers would shit their pants.  No more welfare.  Things are fucked up.

Good news is good news, bad news is good news, no news is very good news, very bad news is great news - hence, all news are good news. It really is that easy.

I don't like capital punishment, so I suggest we load them into a spaceship and launch them, then again they might re colonize some poor other planet with "debt based paper money" and "adjustable rate loans".

No capital punishment can ever come close to the epic suffering they have inflicted. The point is to eliminate the perps and provide strong negative incentive to prevent it from happening again. The purpose is NOT to extract equivalent flesh from the perps, we are WAY past that!

Hang 'em high. No shortage of camera posts and rope.

Don't worry about the real money action.  All that's happening is the buying and selling of paper contracts that's called "a flight to safety" or "dumping gold" or pick your MSM cliche for this farce.  BTFD

I guess that could be at least in part because everyone recognizes how screwed we really are.  The only debate is why.  There are Keneysians who have their idea of why and what to do about it; and the austrians.  Me, I think they are all guessing - economics is not only the dismal science.  It is not a science at all.

So what to do?  Enjoy the show.  Me? I'm grabbin' some popcorn and pullin' up a chair to watch the finale!

totally off topic but yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine who believed that woman had 4 periods per month :)

His wife told that to him and he believed it :)

And he never gets any when she has her period :)

He's married for over 10 years now :)

Poor bastard :)

I almost pissed myself when he was telling me that :)

Three blondes at the bar downing drinks, fist pumping and shouting "Six Months" over and over.  Bartender says what's the occasion ladies?

Says blonde, "We got a jigsaw puzzle that said on the box "For 3-5 Years" and it took us only six months to put it together."

you have two groups of investors, one chained to economic performance, they buy the news, the other group is looking to lighten up their portfolio, or they have redemptions, so they are looking to sell, the two groups might actually be the same firms.

Why not? How much is facebook worth? What ever some dumbass is willing to pay for it. Nobody really cares what it is worth, only what they can convince someone else it is worth so they can sell it as quickly as possible for a profit. I think some refer to it as an "opportunity", even if they created the opportunity themselves through the propagation of lies and misconceptions. Really, what is it worth! Make me fucking laugh!

The site must have an immense following. Congrats to the guys and girls who put it together. Personally, were I Tyler and crew, I'd cash out, buy a truckload of gold in Switzerland, and toast the world.

True growth is someone making something from nothing. Our growth is selling nothing for something using printed or borrowed money. It all sounds perfectly sustainable to me...
