Ron Paul hosed... again.

Hate to say this but Obama might take 2012 by by proxy of non-participation of the electorate.


The smear job being run against Ron Paul is at thermo nuclear strike levels.

Too early. All I know is: None of those 'events' had any real significance in my life and Art is a master at his craft. The old dog knows one thing for sure: Mundus vult decipi.

Three cheers to the poet named Cashin

Whose year ending verse is the fashion

Don't speak of the dead

Give us stock tips instead

That will help us when everything's crashin'!

That and the fact that the GOP is yet again working successfully to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.  The fact that Romney is the supposed front-runner and Bachmann is even in the running says it all.  We'll get to choose from "shitty" and "really shitty" in November, if the S hasn't HTF before then, and that's a big 'if' in my opinion.

Some New Years quotes for all


Mark Twain
New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.

Brooks Atkinson
Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.

Bill Vaughan
Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to.

P. J. O'Rourke
The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to.

Jay Leno
Now there are more overweight people in America than average-weight people. So overweight people are now average… which means, you have met your New Year's resolution.

James Agate
New Year's Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.

Eric Zorn
Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and, ultimately, reinforces humility. Breaking them is part of the cycle.

Bill Vaughan
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

Charles Lamb
New Year's Day is every man's birthday.

Oprah Winfrey
Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right.

Mark Twain
New Year's Day… now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.

Judith Crist
Happiness is too many things these days for anyone to wish it on anyone lightly. So let's just wish each other a bile-less New Year and leave it at that.

Many people look forward to the New Year for a new start on old habits.

Joey Adams
May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions!

Anais Nin
I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me.

Oscar Wilde
Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.

Robert Paul
I'm a little bit older, a little bit wiser, a little bit rounder, but still none the wiser.

A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one Year and out the other.

Leonard Bernstein
From New Year's on the outlook brightens; good humor lost in a mood of failure returns. I resolve to stop complaining.

G. K. Chesterton
The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. Unless a man starts on the strange assumption that he has never existed before, it is quite certain that he will never exist afterwards. Unless a man be born again, he shall by no means enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

I saw dear Art Cashin, NYSE Badge 805, trying courageously to hold a glass to receive a bit of the Veuve Cliquot's benevolent discovery, but alas, and is my fond hope, that it was something other than marinating fluid that dissolved what ever set of nerves that control the Ssshhaaakkkes.

God bless Everyone says Tiny Tim and I.

Art Cashin is one of a kind. Hope he stays with us for a long while. A class act.

And to all here at Zero Hedge, been a hell of a year. We get the truth here, every day. We argue, we disagree but we are a community of spirt that longs for the day that this planet finds the truth, does what is right for the country and the world. In short, we still have hope.

Happy New Year Tyler and Staff and all who frequent here. Yes, you too Robot.

Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that two stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Fuck scores keep your dinky arrows, Id slap half of you with your own two hands.

But to the decents keep on truckin, bitchez
