  • Without TARP US would have had 25% unemployment - Interpretation: With TARP Lloyd Blankfein will be a trillionaire, as companies cut SG&A to 0, unemployment hits 100% and Net Income becomes Revenue.
  • Chinese need to reform currency - Interpretation: We need to kill the dollar, those bastards over there are making it impossible.
