That sounds rather unpleasant.  How about just 200k pink slips in the financial services industry?

How about let them get paid 100% in bank stocks with 4 year vesting period to make them work insane hours living in squalor in Jew York shitty, then in 2-3 years let the banks go bankrupted. Start with the top execs.


Worse than ending their misery with a pink slip is to continue it.

Just long enough for Blythe & Co. to send gold by 4%. You gotta hand it to the woman to man the bridge while every one else abandoned ship.

Sadly the walking dead already populate DC. Or at least the halls of power. I was hoping the earthquake would get that liquefaction thingy going and the entire stinking mess would be swallowed by the swamp it was built on.

<sigh> Dream on CD.

Yeah, but minus the actual craving for human flesh, the walking dead there are boring.

I was really hoping for flesh eaters on the streets of NY, NY.  Talk about great TV!

The DC lobbyist's eat human flesh. Since there is......what...... around 20,000 of them, what more do you want?

what more do you want?

Criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers being eaten alive in the streets.  I'm not really asking for all that much.

Nope...this is Cdad in normal mode...and I drink martinis, thank you.

Oooh, I'd forgotten all about that combination, given the lack of seismic activity there. The dandelions may have some help overtaking the place after all.

No seriously, check out every fucking blogsite to see pages upon pages of earthquake discussion and hysteria. It's as if a 9.0 hit and the survivors are in a group hug... cue MSM interviews of people sobbing on TV wailing how terrified they were. Typical overreacting americans playing the victim.

I'm confused. Does that overreacting and playing the victim still count if the folks are illegal immigrants?

No, it's not as if a 9.0 hit. I'd say you're the one overreacting here.

At least now the enonomists can blame the great Virginia Earthquake of 2011 for bad economic data.

Every has dream like that.

Me for example: I hope global warming happens real fast. If the sea level risses 3 to 4 meters, my house will very close to the sea, meaning my real estate value would go up BIG TIME. And also the Holland people would try to relocate so that should also make my real estate rise in price.

Yeah... still dreams....

I'd better burn a bit more platic in my back yard and let my car run stationairy this evening to support the rising water levels...

This site rocks! No place else has such up to date information. I tried Googling first and only got some clerk's personal experience on the screen. Nada from the MSM. I guess they're busy evacuating all the buildings. Zerohedge has the most acurate and most up to date info anywhere.
