American "Exceptionalism" (In One Cartoon)

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It would appear there is one thing the USA is still exceptional at (given snowboarding is off the table)...

Fine, but understand that leading up to the first american revolution, people were fucking pissed off and "at their wit's end" for something like a hundred years. It didn't just erupt overnight. In fact they did everything they could think of in order to avoid a conflict. They pursued all kinds of legal means (which of course went nowhere.)

It happened, but it took quite a while to get to the breaking point.

Just sayin'.

1. The Fed's Bernanke, Yellen, and Fischer 

 

2. 4 out of the 9 supreme court judges

 

3. Jacob Lew (and others before him, Urgen-Terrorist son Rahm Emmanuel and co)

 

4. Jamie Dimon, Blankfein, Moshe-what's-his-name from AIG and the rest of the gang. 

 

Obummer will never forget who his biggest contributors are that's for sure!

He's only paid that one visit to Israel...the one where "Europe" tried to pull the rug out from underneath American Diplomacy only to have it end in a fiatsco called "Cyprus."

And when he got to Israel he shoved the phone in Bibi's face and told him "say your sorry to Erdogan" which in fact Netanyahu did do.

I have been watching this whole Puerto Rico thing closely...especially after the catastrophic visit to Detroit post election.

No...I think the President follows quite well in long of politicians who are at the end of the day...politicians.

I do agree his numbers are not good.
His numbers are quite bad actually.

Wall Street moonshotting here while the rest of us starve and freeze to death does not help either...especially with a home base called "Chicago."

My understanding polling data wise the only institution Americans have any faith in anymore is the military. And of course..."when you get elected you get to serve in the one place that has the highest concentration of military people on earth."

So, yeah..."Wall Street has a lot of work to do here too."
They've paid themselves well...probably better than ever this go around...but to say the American people haven't shared in this bounty is like saying "Uncle Joe Stalin was really just a laid back guy."

most governments have been limited by funding. If they wanted to get truly evil they had to tax and oppress. The USA at the moment can merely print currency. It does not have to upset taxpayers. As long as the rest of the world takes dollars for stuff it will continue. Behaviors will likely change drastically if the dollar collapses.

Exactly! This is why the US is going to be the most dangerous place in the world to live in if not already. Other countries' governments just salivate at what the US spends on military/ police state complex. Others my have more oppressive laws but not even close the means to implement them as the US does.

I have no CNBC anymore.  Charter shut it off and left me with MSNBC.  Somehow the geniuses at Charter thought I would pay extra for CNBC but it's not working out for them.  How the fuck they ever came to the conclusion that CNBC is a premium channel is beyond me and actually not having CNBC has saved some TV screens in this household.  I'm not paying jack shit for that channel.  In fact, these fucking cable companies ought to pay us to watch the shitshow programming they come up with.  Now back to commercial.
