Greenspan Receives a Remedial Economics Lesson–Greed Trumps the Market

Greenspan: Shocked, shocked, shocked!

Greenspan: Shocked, shocked, shocked!

So it comes as a huge surprise to Alan Greenspan that lack of regulation merely encourages unbridled greed to such an extent that the market winds up eating itself alive. I guess he never heard of the worm Oroboros. Of course, it wasn’t HIS fault–he was only the most powerful man in finance, responsible for setting the interest rates on those loans that got out of hand. Not to mention supporting Bush’s/Cheney’s insane tax cuts that drained the Treasury so that we had to borrow money for his wars, for disaster recovery, and now to save the banks. It was our due

Speaking of things that got out of hand, Sarah Palin has a new wardrobe LOL. $150K, but don’t worry–it’ll all go to charity after the election. That’s right, to charity. You got that now? It’s going to charity.

God, what hypocrites.

So what does that make us, the unreal America, or the real un-Americans?

So here we are with the last of the Dodos. Which one is the bigger Dodo, Sarah Palin, who thinks that real Americans ‘tolerate’ homosexuals, want victims of incest or rape to have children they had no choice in conceiving, think evolution is just some silly scientific fiction, don’t want blacks, latinos or poor whites to vote, and think that other Americans who disagree with them should be called terrorists and murdered (at least until the librul media found out about it and then she said she wouldn’t tolerate that kind of talk after smiling at it all last week), or John McCain, who chose this bigot as his running mate and now has to make believe he’s “proud” of her so he can ride on HER coattails. DRILL, BABY, DRILL! I always assumed that REAL Americans were not only “tolerant” but proud of our national diversity. Guess I just haven’t spent enough time at the strip mall.

Obama Offended?

Obama Offended?

Yanno, I’m beginning to wonder about politics in America. It’s been well established that you can’t tell the truth about anyone. Teddy Kennedy suggested that George Bush was being less than honest with the American people (and he was) and Bush complained that Kennedy was being “incivil.” Truth, like Bush’s less than stellar National Guard record, has to be backed up with documentation, eye witnesses and multiple crossings of the heart. On the other hand, if you tell lies, the media HAS to pay as much attention to them as to other news, so outrageous BS like McCain’s black lovechild (actually an adopted kid from somewhere in the third world), Kerry’s supposedly self-inflicted wounds and Obama being educated in a Hadassah (err something like that), gets told and retold so much it acquires the veneer of “truthiness” (c) Stephen Colbert. Now it looks like satire has become unforgivable. We are told that the New Yorker cover depicting the Obamas as mock terrorists will be misunderstood by the great unwashed who think there’s something to the lies spread by not just the Republicans, but by his Democratic opponents in the primaries, not mentioning any names, Ma’am. Well guess what? If they think there’s something to those lies, they weren’t voting for him ANYWAY. They’re already part of the 23 percent that thinks Bush is doing a bang-up job. If there is one thing that John Kennedy had that Obama doesn’t (besides Marilyn Monroe), it was a sense of humor. He could take it and dish it out with equal gusto. Like the Joker, I have say to the Obama-man, WHY SO SERIOUS? Obama also said they shouldn’t be on his wife, Michelle, either. Well, tough. First Lady’s are part of the campaign. If you don’t want your wife to be part of your Presidential run, don’t be married when you start it. Lest I be accused of beating up on Obama, McCain ain’t any better–he has a sense of humor like a wet turd if his ape rape joke of several years ago is any indication. So lighten up guys.
