Best Joke of the Week

An Italian doctor says: "In Italy, medicine is so advanced that when we cut off a man's testicles and transplant  them on another man, in only 6 weeks he is looking for work." The Dutch doctor says: "That's nothing. In Holland when we take part of a brain and put it in another man, he begins looking for work in as little as 4 weeks." The Canadian doctor says: "Gentlemen, we can take half a heart from a man, put it in another's chest, and in 2 weeks he is looking for work." The American doctor laughs: "You have nothing on us." "Five years ago, we took a man with no brains, no heart, and no balls and made him President. Now, the whole country is looking for work!"

Banksy Was Here

Imma gonna plaster this together and hope it sticks. Six months ago, I did not know who "Banksy" was. I still don't. Neither do the millions who follow his art. My sister made me aware of what he did. Banksy is a shadowy graffiti artist who's work is so excellent- that people stop and stare at it anywhere they find it. Banksy will use any venue that strikes him. As I write this, I am watching "Banksy Does New York." Banksy's work is fantastic and it always makes a statement. Nobody says "fuck you" to established rules any better than Banksy does. You got to love a guy who disses on the "Freedom Tower" (built where the world trade center buildings were) and says it belongs in Canada. Most of Banksy's work gets painted over and destroyed. It is after all, against the law. So today, rather than read another hateful government rant, take a spin through Banksy's world. Here's a great place to start.  http://www.artoft

Gold: Try To Explain This Chart....

...because I can't. Three years ago, with national debt levels rising, gold inexplicably went into free fall. Some three years later gold is still dragging the bottom of its range near 1200. It has been a three year bear market. With national debt levels at 17.9 trillion, I don't even think there's a little old lady in Kansas that believes we can pay this debt off. The only two ways this debt ever gets paid off? Default or a hyperinflationary event. For gapers only.

Jonathan Gruber, Nominee for the Asshole Hall of Fame*Updated- The Sunday Collage

Oh, how I try. Week after week I think- I will write something nice and uplifting. And then along comes a guy like Jonathan Gruber. I've met a lot of people in my life. Motorists, crime victims, drug addicts and alcoholics. I've worked with hundreds of cops, school district employees, merchants, and various members of special interest groups. I've played in golf tournaments, poker tournaments, and softball tournaments. Hell, I've probably dated at least 50 women. I've known thousands of people. And in all of my 53 years, there are probably only two people who I would feel quite comfortable knowing and describing as assholes. So getting into the FG Hall of Fame is no easy task. Assholes, by my definition, have to possess the following qualities. They have to be completely self absorbed and self centered. When an issue arises, they will always do what is in their best interests- they are not concerned with anyone else's interests although they may preten
