"On The Beach Getting Tan And Sipping Corona, We Got A Monetary Plan-- And It Involves A Lot Of Toner..."

Tyler Durden's picture

First, in a long series of monetary dumbification for the masses, was Keynes v Hayek (part one and two), then many, many, many Xtranormal cartoons, now, the latest viral phenomenon is rappers tearing Geithner and Bernanke a new one, gangsta style.

Lyrics:

Raise da debt ceiling!
Raise da debt ceiling!
Raise da debt ceiling!
Raise da debt ceiling!

14 trillion in debt
but yo we ain't got no qualms
droppin $100 bills
and million dollar bombs

spending money we don't have
that's the name of the game
they call me cumulo nimbus
because you KNOW I make it rain

bail out all kind of cars
got all kind of whips
ladies ask me how I get em
I tell em STIMULUS

Social Security surplus?
Oh, guess what? it's gone
I got my hands on everything
like Dominique Strauss Kahn

ain't got no Medicare trust fund
son, that's just absurd
spending every single penny that
we see, son, have you heard?

ain't got no moral objections
ain't got kind of complaints
ain't got no quantitative
statutory budget restraints

so...
[CHORUS]

Yo, we up in the Fed
and we living in style
Spending lots of money
while we sipping crystal

still making it rain
and yeah it be so pleasing
wait, not making it rain--
we be "Quantitative Easing!"

QE1, QE2
QE4, QE3
Dropping IOU's
in every fund that I see

printing the cash
inflating the monies
callin up China
"a-yo we straight out of 20's!"

in the club
we be louding out
while to the market, yeah
we be crowding out

on the beach getting tan
and sipping Corona
we got a monetary plan--
and it involves a lot of toner...

[CHORUS]

So if you look at the chart
and examine the trend
we borrow 40 cents of every
single dollar we spend

and non-discretionary spending
increases every day
do you have a comment for Committee?
I MAKE IT RAIN

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker
would you beam me up?
A Congressperson cutting spending?
Couldn't dream me up

We're gonna default
if we follow this road!
I should have thought of this
14 trillion dollars ago!

I'm the king of the links
I'm a menace at tennis
I'm sticking spinnaz on my rims
picking winnaz in business

if you're looking for some cash
it's about to get heavy
I got some big ol' piles of money
and guess what--they shovel ready

[CHORUS]

25 years ago during lunch in El Paso, a guy who was raised on the Mexican side asked me if I drank Corona.

When I said no, he responded, "Good man, cuz in Mexico, even the poor Mexicans don't drink Corona".

thanks for the jimi.  now that's an 'merikan.

He cries oh, girl you must be mad, 
What happened to the sweet love you and me had? 
Against the door he leans and starts a scene, 
And his tears fall and burn the garden green

PERRY VS. U.S.

Congress has power expressly to prohibit and invalidate contracts, although previously made and valid when made, when they interfere with carrying out any monetary policy Congress is free to adopt.

suicide bomber
im the default warrior
blowinup in the face of the new world order

my body parts scatter
my credit is shattered
the last thing  i hear is my stone cold laughter

maelevolent minds
devised this vicious crime
of robbing the poor of every single fukin dime

im the urban robbin hood
jack the banks for 'good'
takin back what was stolen by the federal reserve

cuz im a suicide bomber
im the default warrior
blowinup in the face of the new world order

financal terror
through a default letter
enslave the people with money out of nowhere

dastard teaser rates
to get your dick up straight
then knock it back down when your one day late

whats the worst kinda hooker
the consumer or the banker
"he who has the gold, makes the rules", muthafucka!

9 to 5 worker, makin 7.50 an hour
"want this check for 10 grand?: no interest till next summer!"
now im unemployed, and my house is underwater
and the sherrif is servin me an un-lawful detainer

now im workin for the banks, and no way to escape it
and they're taxin' down my pay check before I even see it

I'm waiting for Bernanke to respond with his own rap video, one where he is riding Tim Geithner like a horse in slo-mo. Maybe Bernanke doesn't think that gold is money, but I'm sure he has some serious bling in his closet.
