Class is in Session

Thankfully, I can multi task. Watch football and produce silly video. Probably better at watching football.

They Dwell Among Us

Sometimes, words fail. I stumbled onto this piece of Bryan Fischer's while I was doing my a.m. scan of free radicals in the blogosphere. I cannot tell you how difficult it is for me to read something like this and not personally attack the author. I think what bothers me about this piece is that I have read similar rants by this author for years. What bothers me most I suppose, is Mr. Fischer's motivations. Not his credentials as a minister or something, or that he blogs under some "family" type disguise. Rather why does he choose a topic like this? Does he support killing? Does he somehow think that saving lives is less brave than taking lives? Or does he just crave the attention? Does he enjoy writing things that inspire hate? Or is he just bashing government's motives in awarding medals? Does he actually believe he is wise, actually insightful, and that we are all going to sign on with his philosophy?

The Galileo Effect

The U.S. is now entering year four...of depression recovery. Are you feeling Japanese yet? They are in about year twenty one of their recovery. I wonder if their government or media tries to bullshit them like ours does? I dunno. This is what I know for sure. We have two fringe groups of radicals in this country. They are called Democrats and Republicans. Completely insane. You can spot them at Ace of Spades HQ or Huffington Post. They have completely gone off the rails. Our government loves that level of unconsciousness. In fact, government's very survival depends on perpetuating that type of thinking and keeping voters in a coma. By all measurements, the scheme is starting to develop cracks. Here's what the centrists can agree on. From a ZeroHedge snip... Specifically, a Rassmussen poll conducted in February found: 70% [of all voters] believe that the government and big business typically work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors. (and see this ). Re

TSA, Bringing the Love

10/14/14. This is a four year old piece from the FG archives. I thought I'd repost it because it's just as good today as it was back then. Brian Well today ends my disco week marathon. Thinking rockin' country week next week. So while all you people were doing useful things, like swilling beer, practicing self love, and sleeping...I was putting this gem together. As a career cop, nothing pisses me off more than the Transportation and Safety Administration. Months after the 9/11 attacks, these termites infiltrated my ski resort home town. I tried to play nice with these guys. Let me tell you how they select the TSA hierarchy. Potential candidates for upper level jobs are asked to undergo a CAT scan. If they see any evidence of common sense as demonstrated by electrical activity in the frontal lobe- you are summarily disqualified and sent back to the post office. One of the first acts of the TSA swarm was that they ordered us to import bomb sniffing dogs and check

Dow Rallies, the Unemployed, Not So Much

An "expert" on CNBC calling today a "snap back" rally. He says market fundamentals are good. He also says that today's rally has a "short gamma effect." I guess if Ken Marschner spews some bullshit out- we can take it to the bank. Maria Bartiromo doesn't look so good to me. Check this out. It will have you on the edge of your seat. I promise. Today's vote in the House is going to have a short gamma effect on the pocketbooks of 2 million Americans. No unemployment benefit extensions. Sometime after Dec 1, the unemployed will have to start bumming money from the relatives or use Ken Marschner's advice to score some short term gains. I can hear the whining now. Oh, those evil Republicans. Right before Christmas. The inhumanity of those bastards. The lefty blogs will be buzzing. Just checked Huffington Post and snipped this headline. The Plot To Ruin Christmas: As Holidays Approach, No Pl

What's a Little Fraud Among Friends?

I think I'm going to stay with the disco theme. I secretly loved disco, but had I ever told my friends that at the time- they would have beat the shit out of me. Dig the hair. On the chest. Today was the great Government Motors rebirth and initial public offering. Alas, some things are better off dead. The curious case of GM is one of them. Priced at thirty three bucks a share. Get your put options ready. Yesterday, I saw some fund manager or muckety muck on CNBC say that he thought any business that was government controlled or owned should be sold immediately. I almost spewed coffee on the keyboard. I can't wait for the United States Post Office initial public offering. Where will they price that? General Motors should have been allowed to fail. Their pension plan and union contract with free health benefits for life was simply not sustainable. Remember Obama essentially firing GM CEO Rick Wagoner as they were taking that mess over? What the fuck business does a Presi

Debt Inferno

Reading with a beat. Ahh this takes me back... California is burning through 1.2 billion Federal tax dollars per month in the greatest unemployment loan and giveaway scheme this country has ever seen. Just check out this parabolic piece and wonder where the national debt will be as Congress- is passing the 12th extension at some point in the future. It just never ends. The staggering costs must be repaid by employers. Most believe the unemployment coffers will have to be replenished by increasing unemployment costs nearly 100% on existing employers. I'll bet employers will respond by hiring shit loads of folks. Next up, the Fed will start buying muni debt- the U.S. has it's own Ireland...only ours is bigger and we call it the golden state. If you like twisted shit for laughs...throwing this in. I'll ask for forgiveness later...

The "New Age" Slave Traders

When Turbo Tax Timmy speaks, well I'm not sure anyone listens. We know the central bank water he carries. This is the same shit every banker spews. The same shit that allowed Hank Paulson to funnel our money thru AIG to his pals at Goldman Sachs and every other TBTF bank. I am truly beginning to hate bankers. Here's what Timmy said about the latest bank hostages. In Washington, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Europe was capable of dealing with the debt crisis but needed to act "very, very quickly", combining temporary financial support with reforms that resolve underlying problems. So here's the Irish scenario. Same as ours. Ireland will have to give up it's sovereign rights, face the same austerity measures, and ask the criminals who engineered their banking collapse for help and more payoffs. Oh sure, we have yet to feel this pain but we will. So far the Irish are refusing. The other side is now playing the doom and gloom card. The Euro

More Choir Practice

Thought I'd clip and embed this dude. I like what he says...except that somehow after I watched it...I felt like my ass just got chewed. Not sure how effective that style of delivery is.

All Of Your Money Belongs To Us

I can't begin to tell you what a horrific burden it is to be so incredibly witty, clever, and talented- it is truly a heavy load. Of all of my formidable talents, the one talent I absolutely perfected over the years- was my incredible ability to buy out of the money put options and watch them expire worthless. Oh sure, a year or two later, I would be vindicated when some triggering event would enable the masses to discover that the underlying security they owned was worthless. It used to drive me- absolutely bat shit crazy- to listen to a CEO on a conference call use "weasel language." Carefully selected words and verbage that the CEO could "weasel" out of on some future conference call as investors were sharpening their guillotines. Hearing that shit was priceless. It pointed to the real fundamentals of the company. Buying put options is tricky work because weasel language works. For awhile. Usually long enough for my options to expire worthless. The masses

Iceland Is What America Was

Can you imagine the chaos we would have- if "We the people" actually ran our country? If we could vote on the TARP bailout, union run GM, Obamacare, or Fed policy like quantitative easing? Giving moonbats like Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi migraines? It gives me goosebumps. Imagine the possibilities. Failed banks with crooked bankers would be allowed to fail. We could actually vote to prosecute fraudulent bankers and rating agencies. Failed automakers and insurance companies wouldn't get a mulligan. A real health plan could be devised. QE2 would be scoffed at. Could we do any worse than the sociopaths now inhabiting Washington? I don't think so. And guess what? The vast majority of us have never taken one campaign contribution. We aren't co-opted at any level. What mechanism would we use?  They have this thing called a US Tax Return 1040. For individuals. It is
