Undisclosed Elitist Buys Painting for 120 Million, You Can See It Here For Free

I can't imagine what it must be like. Having an ego so large and demanding, that it insists that you spend 120 million dollars on one painting. Here's the best part. Somewhere out there, perhaps in the future, is an ego so enormous that one day it will pay even more for that piece of canvas. That is the insanity of man. The buyer can't disclose himself for any number of reasons that are relatively easy to speculate on. Now that the big bidding war is over, what comes next? Do buyers have to pay sales tax? Where do you show your 120 million dollar prize? How do you protect it? Do you stare at it every night in an effort to get your money's worth? Ya know what? I'm gonna post a picture of it here for free. You may stare at it as long as you like. Days, if need be. Doesn't it just send chills up your spine? I'll tell ya this much. If I ever get my hands on an extra 150 million

Get Ready, Here It Comes, The VAT or Value Added Tax

The statists will never quit. Nothing pisses me off more than reading some liberal piece of shit like this- extolling the virtues of a VAT- "Because, don't ya know- everyone else has a they must be good." Shit.

Frankendamus Chimes In With The Ground Zero Report on Our Shitty Economy

The April employment report is in. Try as hard as he does, even President Spin can't polish this turd. But I'll be damned if the media doesn't try and do it for him anyway. For decades, business and government were in the habit of fleecing American consumers for every last penny that they could get their greedy hands on. Now suddenly, 88 million people have left the workforce. That is GINORMOUS. Here's the best part. They act like they just can't understand why. It's a fucking mystery to them. Here at Frankenstein Government, I often find myself in the translation business. This is where I explain what is going on. Kind of like George Carlin without the intelligence or humor. Obviously our first problem is that American corporations have offshored 30 or 40 million jobs over the last deca

Airlines Now Effectively Pricing Themselves Out of Existence

So yesterday, I read about Spirit Air charging 100 dollars for a piece of carry on luggage. Those kinds of business decisions ultimately lead to business failures. It made me wonder. Does Spirit Air think they have some captive audience that loves to fly? Are they under the impression that we all enjoy paying excessive ticket prices, taxes for everything including the TSA army, another 100 bucks for a bag, standing in lines, getting searched, being bumped on overbooked flights and crammed into sardine like seating arrangements? Not to mention crappy weather, late arrival and departure times, and the occasional mechanical failure or drunken pilot... Apparently Spirit Airlines thinks they are offering some free ride with drinks on a mechanical bull. I have never owned an airline stock. I'd be shorting them if anything. They are the worst investments on the planet. I also hate to i

Beauty Queen Whips Boyfriend's Ass

I am reminded of that saying placed at the bottom of a giant poster featuring a gorgeous, young, blonde woman. Somewhere, some man, is tired of putting up with her shit. So apparently it is with Mr. Nickerson. Behold the before and after photos. The marvels of modern makeup and our absolute pre-occupation with all things superficial.

Corporate America Whines About Lack of Skilled Workers, Does Nothing To Solve Problem

Corporate or media drivel? Hard to say. Let's suppose for a moment that it's the corporate world.  For the last year or so, I've been stumbling across news stories wherein corporate America whines about the dearth of educated or highly skilled workers. Here's an example. At first blush, I assumed that line of thinking was correct and never gave it much thought. Poor corporate America. Looking for skilled workers, finding none, and then what? Whining about it, off shoring jobs? Are Americans just too stupid to grasp the needs of a rapidly changing corporate world? Are we unwilling to re-educate ourselves? Of course not. This is what pisses me off. Corporate America wants to raid the intellectual property of Americans and pay chump change. They steal retirement accounts, benefits, reduce wages, perform every little chicken shit thing they can do to cut costs and

You Mecca Me Hot and Other Ground Zero Business Ideas

One of those emails making the rounds...      I am truly perplexed that so many people are against a mosque being built at Ground Zero. I think it should be the goal of every American to be tolerant. Thus the Mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance. That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque, thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, "The Turban Cowboy", which would be gay, and the other a topless bar called, "You Mecca Me Hot."   Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called "Iraq o' Ribs."   Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret," with sexy mannequins with short burkas in the window modeling the goods.   Next door to the lingerie shop, a liquor store called "Morehammered."   All of this wo

The Great Anti Blogger and Other Dutch Bags

Warning! We interrupt your regularly scheduled Disney style writing to bring you this profane rant. If you don't like profanity, leave now and go over to Huffpo. That's where the pussies, girly men, and socialists congregate. This is my 1500th post. Locked away in my mother's basement with nothing on but some undies with holes near the elastic, I hump this keyboard. Three years' worth. This is the kind of writing that a 9th grade education gets you. Kids, stay in school. Or drop out and go into the Navy. Do something useful with your lives. But whatever you decide to do- don't become a writer. The world does not need one more writer. Fucking waste of energy. So a couple of years ago, I am in a grocery store where a man named Larry* a politician in Moonbat Valley, is fondling eggplant. I never liked this guy. He's a rich little bastard, born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Went to boarding schools and shit. That kind of guy. He is one of those guys

The One Year Anniversary Of The Great Silver Manipulation

One year ago this week, silver was poised to crack 50 bucks an ounce. Those of us, long metals in general and holding physical silver, were about to reap the rewards of our foresight. I had been planning on unloading part of my position. And then the bastards changed the rules. The CME hiked margin rates 6 times and nearly 100% in such a short time- that it absolutely ruined the silver market and reduced leverage to an unheard of 6-1. It took every small player out of play. The market has never recovered. Here is a fantastic Reuter's story that really details what the silver manipulators did to stop silver dead in its tracks. You'll note that over a three year period- they  hiked margin rates nearly 200%. Think about that for a moment. Why? Why did the CME do that to silver? Who gives two shits about silver? Why don't they do that with oil? Everyone uses oil, don't they? The answer unf

"We Should Have Picked Our Own Cotton"...The Sunday Collage

Every time we exploit someone, there always seems to be consequences. I mean was it really necessary for half a million people to die over cotton? The greatest trick that any capitalist ever pulled- was finding and exploiting some sort of slave labor pool and then loudly proclaiming that you are creating jobs and helping people. Announcing to the world that you are some sort of humanitarian while splashing a few charitable donations around and making sure people know about them. Like strip clubs, whorehouses, and lottery boards donating money to schools. That's how the world gets greased. In the end- immense profits come by way of exploiting workers while convincing every one that you are the one doing them a favor and not the other way around. Like this. Wasting your money is good for the rest of us. In fact, it's downright patriotic. We said so. ---The Oregon Lottery  Immigrants have always been easily exploitable. There were African slaves picking cotton, the Chinese
