Project "Gun Walker"...If You Haven't Read About This Scandal, You Should

This is simply too bizarre to make up. The mainstream media is eerily silent. Check this out.

The origins of the story. http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-national/american-thinker-narrates-development-of-project-gunwalker-story

Senators Emerge from Indian Sweat Lodge, Smell of Marijuana- Completely Fucking Delirious

A bi-partisan group of Senators asking Obama to take the lead role in budget cuts??? It's over kids. We are doomed. These guys have completely left the rails. Asking leaders to lead- is a last ditch effort that demonstrates just how desperate the situation has become. Barack probably busy watching the NCAA tourney. Betcha he got that Richmond game wrong, Louisville too.

Shit. If I had to pin my hopes on Obama to solve anything- I'd be wearing tinfoil and eating rainbow stew.

Twelve Years of Suck

Eight years of Bush the moron. Followed by four years of Obama "what is worthless and comes from Hahvvad."

I note that New Jersey's Obama school is closing after just one year of hope and change. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2011/03/nj-school-named-for-obama-to-close/1

You know things really suck when your own comrades are jumping ship. Even Hillary Clinton has had enough of Obama's shit. This says it all. In fact, Hillary almost begs Obama to fire her. http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2011/03/hillary-clinton-will-leave-state-department-if-obama-wins-reelection-in-2012.html

We have had twelve years of elite enrichment and world class deficits under these two idiots...how much time do we have left? Can we afford 16 years of suck? I don't think so.

Here's the worst part. I don't think the solution comes from the Tea Party or Palin- although she could certainly do no worse. I think Palin is unelectable. Women don't like her because they are jealous (there I said it, c'mon...you are all thinking it) responsible people don't like her because quitting two years into a Governor gig near Siberia doesn't exactly get the blood pumping. Brains? What is the IQ threshold for President? 80, 90, 100? Who knows? It's not like the Yale and Harvard brainiacs have done much during the twelve years of suck.

We need someone on a par with Attila the Hun. Someone like Chris Christie on steroids. Wisconsin Governor Walker, http://www.fox4kc.com/news/politics/sns-rt-politics-us-usa-wistre72h0mr-20110318,0,2037420.story  We simply don't have time to waste. The US DEBT clock doesn't take a holiday. Look at the bottom right of the page. We all each owe over a million bucks. Let me know when the silly shit starts- like who is gonna pay that? http://www.usdebtclock.org/

Only about 18 months of suck left.

Obama- 7 Lies in Under Two Minutes

Ahh, yes. Do what you say, say what you mean. Not this guy, not here.

Get Your Passports Early!

About three months ago, I ordered up a new birth certificate. Unlike President Obama, they were able to find mine and send it to me. It took almost a month. Then I had to schedule a passport appointment. After a couple of months, I paid my 151.00 bucks. I waited another three weeks for the passport to arrive. Getting a passport, I have concluded, is a giant pain in the ass.

Very emblematic of anything our "efficient" government does. Unbelievable. There is no reason why the system couldn't be streamlined and the passport issued instantly- except that the kleptocracy is in charge.

So the poor Japanese, with clouds of radiation wafting around and no electricity, are getting ready to flee the island en masse. But you see, you don't get to flee until you get one of those passports. I can't imagine how much fun they are having as they stampede in for a passport. They should put the US Government in charge of issuing passports. That would stop that shit in a hurry. http://www.zerohedge.com/article/tokyo-exodus-part-3-atm-shutdowns-power-outages-put-citizens-edge-gold-hoarded-evacuation-pr

While I was getting the passport, the gal asked me where I was traveling. I said, "sweetie I ain't gettin the passport to travel- I am getting it to evacuate." She gave me a weird look, asked me to take off my tinfoil hat, and she shot the photo. I have now concluded that part of my evacuation planning.

What Me Worry? No Drama Obama

Let's see. Sixty first round of golf played. NCAA tournament bracket complete. What's all this shit about Bahrain and Japan?? Michelle have you seen my khaki shorts??

Gawd I can't wait to get rid of this guy. The WORST. http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/20110316/pl_politico/51382

What the Hell Is It Going To Take-To Wake the "Brain Dead" American People?

I'm not sure.

President Transparency, Useless Idiot 8.0, has done nothing to address the criminal activities of a banking cabal that literally raped the American landscape. Worth noting, he raised nearly a billion in campaign dollars- due in large part to the banking cabal he pardoned. He has played golf 61 times and taken over 90 days or 13 weeks of vacation through 2010. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/president_obama_year_in_numbers_gmxQqJMk9n4XBqb3OzBsnN

The 112th Congress is just another incarnation of useless idiots. All that tea party bullshit. The tax cuts were extended- tax revenues are dramatically down- and all these bozos can do is argue about token tax cuts for a budget that is going to be over and done within six months.

I started this blog three years ago when I realized that neither party, Democrat or Republican, stands for shit anymore. In fact- both parties are utterly useless and co-opted. I read left wing sites and I read righty sites like AceofSpadesHQ and I have concluded that all of these people are morons. All they want to do is bash the other side. There is no solution in that. There will never be any solution in that. Bash Obama, bash Bush, bash Palin. It is nuts.

So the 14.3 debt ceiling will soon be breached, our economy continues to deteriorate, we are now in YEAR 4 of this nightmare with no end in sight. And Bernanke will have no alternative but to start QE3 and we will watch the dollar collapse. http://www.zerohedge.com/article/housing-start-plummet-second-lowest-ever-479k-finished-consumer-food-ppi-jumps-highest-1974

Our heroes. We ARE Japanese. We just don't know it yet.

The Banana Republic Bank of America- My "Bizarro World" Housing Adventure Continues

In early February, I did what no human being with half a brain should do. I put an offer in on a short sale house. I could not have known that Bank of Banana America owned the first. That is just bad luck.

For the record- I hate Bank of America. My experiences with their shitty credit card practices were unbelievable. Bank of America actually enhanced it's already corrupt business practices by buying Countrywide and giving the biggest thief in America, Angelo Mozilo, a job. They pissed off at least 20 million in fine money for Angelo. Mozilo should be making license plates in a California prison.

At any rate, those shitbags owned the first. After a month or so, they and the second lien holder bank agreed to take my offer. I ordered the inspection. During the inspection, I noted that the neighbor had surveyed the lot and was re-claiming about 4 feet of property line x 120 feet or about 500 sqf of my backyard. I was ok with that and I talked with him and his wife. The property is 90 years old. The housing inspector was a great guy, very thorough, and I was there for the duration of that.

So about a week after the inspection, the realtor called to tell me that the Banana Bank had changed it's mind and was now going to foreclose on the property. They had changed negotiators. They failed to mention the ZeroHedge article which disclosed that the Banana Bank of America was going to take all of its toxic loans and put them in a separate "bad bank."

So here is how this works. The Banana Bank owns millions of crappy loans and then hi-jacks my tax money so that they can sit on this shit forever and get backstopped, funded by taxpayers. They release miniscule amounts of inventory amidst "robo-signing" and all of the other fraudulent acts that they engage in. You must put up "earnest money." You must wait months to hear from these pricks. When they finally say ok, you move forward with a 300 dollar inspection. They are then allowed to change their minds. They do not have to put up earnest money. They do not have to pay for my home inspection. They tell me I've got to eat that expense. We'll see. I'll tell you this much. I am looking for the fuckstick that did this.

How would you like to own a business, make crappy decisions, and then get free government money to re-capitalize and save you? You are allowed and encouraged to lie about your assets to hide your insolvency. Here is just one of many bullets that the Banana Bank of America has been allowed to dodge. http://www.zerohedge.com/article/sigtarp-investigate-hackers-bank-america-fraud-allegations 

Are there any Federal or State Prosecutors left? Are they all bought and paid for? Gawd I'd love to organize and sponsor a bank run on these assholes. The sheep bite back.

Today, I am attempting to find out who is responsible for my latest adventure. I am going to get about 300 bucks worth of his or her ass. I'm not kidding. Angry old cops like me show up in weird little places. Like real estate units. I'll even bring the bananas.

Holy Shit Batman! Now Politicians Who Are In Charge of the Ponzi Scheme Realize That the USA is a Ponzi Scheme

Now even the politicians are starting to figure out that the Treasury and the FED are running a Ponzi Scheme. Let me know when the really crazy shit happens. Like when they realize we don't need the FED to begin with. We'll have the strait jackets and tinfoil ready.

Pure Gold From Six Meat Buffet

I am laughing my ass off this a.m. Very interesting day. I stumbled onto this piece over at the buffet and howled with laughter. Maybe President Transparency can take his magic on the road. China. Laughs at the link. http://sixmeatbuffet.com/archives/2011/03/11/bein-preznint-iz-hard-yo/

President Transparency Goes Out On a Limb for Japan

Well, Monday has arrived and our leader has apparently seen fit to clock in. President Transparency has addressed the Japanese disaster. Note the specific bold statements of support. "We will stand with Japan" he says.

What the hell does that mean exactly? Geezus. http://www.fox43.com/news/politics/sns-rt-politics-us-japan-qutre72d4uq-20110314,0,3338845.story

The Bank of Japan's central bankers are now creating 180 billion dollars out of thin air. Like a page out of our playbook. http://money.cnn.com/2011/03/14/news/international/bank_of_japan_earthquake/index.htm

Men!! It's Steak and BJ DAY!!

A few weeks ago I announced that steak and bj day was March 14. http://www.steakandbjday.com/

I am in complete shock that the women in my life expect Valentine's Day largesse each year- yet none of them seem to care about steak and bj day.  We live in an estrogen driven world. The needs of women are all that matter any more.

This morning, I asked my girlfriend if she knew what today was. She replied in some unintelligible grunt that sounded like...uh uh. This is the same sound she makes when I run out of cash and ask her for some. At any rate, I told her about steak and bj day. She said "great", almost sarcastically. She appeared less than enthusiastic. Sensing I was in an inferior position, I told her I'd settle for a piece of beef jerky and a reach around.

I will tell ya this much. If get "stiffed" today, you can damn sure bet I am gonna forget Valentine's day next year. Screw Hallmark and those florists. I mean it. I don't know how today is going to go, but I'm looking for a happy ending.

Why Japan Matters

I've been watching the dramatic revelations taking place in Japan since the earthquake on Friday. It is difficult to fathom or get my arms around. Japan it seems, like the rest of a a delusional world, thinks that they can control things. The Japanese you see, have some of the toughest and most stringent building codes on the planet. They have to. They live on the edge of tectonic plates that shift forcefully. They know this. Knowing that and planning for that- trying desperately to risk manage the possibilities- has lead to the failure of three nuclear power plants and a significant loss of life.

Last night on the news I saw them put the damage costs at 35 billion. I think it will be far greater. *Update, -3/14/11. Credit Suisse announced this a.m. that cleanup costs are estimated around 183 billion. Not sure how much dough it costs to clean up melting down reactors, but now we have two.

One can only imagine how much worse the Japanese might be suffering had they not been as responsible as they have been. Which leads me to observe that man, for all of his ingenuity and risk management, cannot control the shifting tectonic plates. The illusion of control is simply an illusion. One day this planet will die and all of the risk management in the world cannot prevent that. But while we are here we dutifully set out to survive. We plan and we risk manage. That makes sense and we do our best.

What happens in Japan matters. They are the canary in the world coal mine. They are already teetering on the economic edge of the abyss. And as this calamity unfolds, Japan finds themselves with the greatest debt burden in the world. How are they going to pay for this? Who is going to help them? The world debt clock is helpful here. http://www.usdebtclock.org/world-debt-clock.html

Can they effectively rebuild and shutter 3 nuclear power plants? Do they have the financial means to do that? You see I'm not sure. I'm not sure China will help them because they have a centuries old feud. Can a bankrupt U.S. or Europe help them? Interesting questions that will get answered as the weeks ahead of us will deliver the true extent of the damage and the costs associated with the earthquake and tsunami. http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/japanese-survivors-worry-about-dwindling-supplies-food-after-devastating-earthquake-tsunami/2011/03/13/ABlOz6S_story.html

One of the problems with the world now is that we have allocated all of our resources already. We have wasted them on banking collapses, wars, and other man made calamities. We neglect calamities not of our doing. We neglect, dare I say, a planet that doesn't really care about our little man made calamities. It has deliveries of it's own to make. What has happened in Japan matters. Because I'm not sure how many more shocks the world can take. (As a sidelight, it was interesting to note that Kilauea began erupting in Hawaii on Mar. 7.)

Noting more mideast chaos and radioactive clouds rising into the jetstream this a.m. (03/14/11) Waiting for some word from President Transparency who I am told, played his 61st round of golf over the weekend.

Update. Hat tip to Uncle L. Excellent piece in wall St Journal explaining why radioactivity should be contained and minimal. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704893604576198421680697248.html
