This is what kills me, no one bitched when the Farmers took it up the ass. Sure there were some concerts, still are, but no big protests.

Then factory workers took it up the ass, same results.

Now because people who never wanted to get their hands dirty can't get a fucking job, or lose their job, everyone has their panties in a bunch.


If the fucking assholes would have stepped up to the plate and supported all those who went before we would not be where we are today. But no everybody was happy smoking dope, drinking overpriced wine, becoming foodies, aquiring the trappings of wealth, paying to be attractive, and generally not giving a shit about the warning signs.

Meanwhile some of us have never recovered from the 80's.

Fuck all of you who didn't give a shit for the Farmers, for the Steel workers, from the Factory workers. You are just getting what you deserve.

Unfortunately the BANKERS and Billionaires Maggots OWN All the Politicos ...


This is why we are in a World Financial Crisis.

the people losing their jobs in enormous numbers is accelerating in the finance field. Once we reach 100,000 to 1,000,000 in NY and London - the 1/10 of 1% will turn over the 1%. you cant control all the people all the time! 

ALL these people are ultimately a treasure trove of "WHISTLEBLOWERS" who know where all the dead bodies are buried to move up the food chain to blankfein and dimon

the cut and paste mortgage applications of Countrywide are the tip of the iceberg  - the vast outreaches of the conspiracy cannot be controlled without payoffs and the whistleblower are out of range of continous payments within 12 months

the AG's know this in NY/ CA / DEL / MASS and others - obama cannot "control" his control fraud

it is too big and too many people !!!

thank you - GOD  - for overwhelming greed

Booo Fucking Hoooo.. Their sole business model is to move paper around and skim off of labor that produces goods and services.. I hope WS (and banking) gets reduced to 2% of the economy (or less).. Where is should be!

It's the way of the world Gully Foyle

folks wont get off their ass untill ASS reaches critical mass...

There still aren't enough...This morning on the oldies station, the morning jocks were making fun of OWSers, implying they were dirty, useless, violent etc...

(that's what Main Street is being fed by the Oligarchs)

however, belated apologies from the herd, GF....

now we have,

"Brady and 1,065 colleagues joined a wave of firings that has washed away more than 200,000 jobs in the global financial-services industry this year, eclipsing 174,000 in 2009"

but my solidarity doesn't extend that far becuase all I can think of them is..., "who will drink all the vodka cocktails???"

Yup, Greased this going to be bad for hookers and the blow industry.

This is crazy, Euro up on rumors ECB will cave and print? Fantasyland.

If you've been paying attention, you'd realize that the only thing that is keeping the markets above absolute zero is fantasy and printing.

What else is there?
How can you find a sollution for 60 years of fucked up politics?
This last decade, young people have been dreaming that they'll have it as good as the babyboomers. Babyboomers have on average 37 times as much as your average 30 year old. It's only now that they start to realize that dream is and was a pipe dream.
The next thing they still need to realize that the last decade was also a waste of their time. Oh well.... If they bought gold and silver they might still make it. If they bought every version of the iphones, every ipad version, 20000 apps, 50 inch screens in every room.... They're fucked.

Gold and silver... hmm...

Is there an app for that?

When I was a kid, Pluto was a planet, and there was a park, where those getting stomped by big banks, could go and hear the drum beats of a new horizon--a new revolution.

Homosexuality was a mental illness and women could be beaten. Oh drunk driving was no big deal.

And SNL was funny, so was Steve Martin.

You missed one there, just to get a dig into the Trav's of this world:


Steve Martin was black.

No, he was born poor and black...

Tragically, couldn't get that clip in good quality, so settled for the "you mean I'm staying this colour" one...

trav7777's picture

if you're white and calling other white people racist or even giving a shit then you are the problem.  You are a fool and a tool.

There is NO OTHER GROUP I've ever witnessed call another member of their group a racist.  Ever.  instead I have watched shameless racism from them which they don't give a 2nd thought to.

White people who act like you do are punks and bitches.

For those of you who invest in an IRA or for long term goals, theres a better approach than buy,hold,hope. Stocks follow the economy so analyzing the economy, specifically the factors that are "leading indicators" and having exposure to equities only when the economy is headed in the right direction and avoiding equities in favor of safe haven baskets is a much more logical approach. And missing the major drawdowns is the only way to help ensure meeting your goals.  If you are interested in investing in a portfolio that tactically invests in equity and safe haven baskets via ETF's automatically, please email me at:

and I'll add you to the weekly market commentary & portfolio update distribution list.  Its free to add you and you can follow along our model and our views.  We have been RISK-OFF since 6/30 so have missed all this wicked volatility. Currently invested in short duration treasury baskets as flight to safety drives interest in our debt.

Kayman's picture

My long term goal is to see the last of the criminals that produce nothing.  Anything on a computer screen or printed on a piece of paper requires trust.  And NOBODY CAN BE TRUSTED.

Thank you Wall Street and Washington.

GeneMarchbanks's picture

'And that's just it: as Wall Street, long accustomed to the best in life, wakes up to the harsh realities of life on Main Street, it will be precisely these (in)voluntary defectors that will soon be some of the most vocal enemies of the old establishment that kept them paid, fed, and covered their expense accounts. Because if there is one thing that dies the hardest, it is old habits.'

Remains to be seen but that certainly is the logical conclusion. Too bad it had to come to this...

And they will make great witnesses if we can find any prosecutors.

I better take my meds I'm becoming delusional again.

Agreed. Fuck the other side.

NYPD is the 4th branch of the Israel Defense Forces. Bought and paid for.

"Retired Philadelphia police captain, Ray Lewis, seen above, detained illegally by a corrupt police department he describes as “Wall Street mercenaries”. "

"He knows he risks his life by coming out, in uniform, exposing American police as the enemy so many have known them to be for so long."

No shit.  200,000 layoffs is only a good start.  Plenty of fat yet to cut.

Let's see these people kicked out of the "meritocracy" use their "merits" to actually produce something.

eatthebanksters's picture

You people are all missing something very important.  Yes, the banking sector, along with Washington, is responsible for the economic mess we are in, however, not every person in banking and finance is evil.  We want good honest bankers, they can help get things going in the right direction.  What we need to do is investgate and prosecute the bad ones so that they go away and also set an example for others who would think of going down the same path.  I wish Obummer would direct Holder to do his job...just ask Bill Black who was the special prosecutor during the S&L crisis in the early 90's.  I feel bad for any honest and hard working soul who is out of work.  I support anyone who gets screwed by corrupt people.  I do not support greedy corrupt bankers nor do I support smelly people living in squalor and protesting that they should be given something to which no one is entitled (freebies paid for by others).  If our government got back in the business of creating opportunity instead of class warfare, we might be able to work our way out of this mess (someday!)

"We want good honest bankers" We already have Disneyland.

Since the "intermediary" business in founded in the excrement at the bottom of an outhouse, and is gussied up as ice cream, how pray tell do we get to "honest" bankers.

Who's going to eat the shit ? 

chet's picture

I agree with you on most of that, and I can feel for some of these people on a human level.  Or if they are douchebags, I at least feel for their families.

But on a macro level, the financial industry had grown way way to large by 2008 and was/is crowding out other sectors of the economy.  Money is being sucked into bogus financial gimmicks instead of being invested productively.  So on a macro level, the whole industry needs to keep shrinking for a long time in my book.

We need to return to boring, honest bankers lending prudently to prudent people.   Banking needs to be boring again.  It shouldn't seem like an exciting, fast-paced career to ambitious 23-year-olds.  They should think, "why the hell would I want to go into banking?"

fuck their families too...their wives are self-obsessed cunts and their kids are insufferable, spoilt little brats
