Bear Market & Recession Blues? Cheer Up

Wall Street is flirting with a bear market which would confirm a U.S. recession . Gee, what's a recession look like in a country that consumes 25% of the worlds output with only 4% of the planets population? What's more the U.S. consumer has to borrow significant amounts of money from foreigners, banks and credit cards to continue this unsustainable lifestyle fact.

All this consumption is on top of a bloated and wasteful U.S. "defense" budget whose total is greater than all of the rest of the worlds defense budgets combined. This nonsense allows the U.S. to enter into wars of choice like the five-front engagements we are currently involved-Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Somalia and Pakistan. The C.I.A. has a long list of other wars we can enter if it happens that these five get resolved. The C.I.A. is evil incarnate.

A recession will certainly focus the wastrels in congress to more carefully weigh their spending priorities. That would be a good thing if war is shortchanged and peace becomes a better investment for scarce tax revenues.

The human species needs a recession to better acquaint itself with its own limitations and the limits of the earth. Look at the rest of the flora and fauna, they have been in a bear market since we showed up.

"Waste not want not".

Bill Gates : Hung Up On Redundant Humans

Bill Gates retires today at age 52. He's one of the wealthiest at app. $52 billion. He plans to spend the rest of his life giving away the money that he spent the first part of his life accumulating. I wonder. When did it occur to him that making money as a goal was not all it was cracked up to be? He's joined in his philanthropic plans by the worlds richest-Warren Buffett. Like Bill, he is giving all his money away and will use Bill's personal foundation as the executor. Presumably Warren has second thoughts about wealth as a goal .But he is somewhat suspect. Because at 78 of years age, he is running up against the "can't take it with you" proverb.

How and where is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation going to spend the combined philanthropic fortune? It looks like Bill is headed back to Africa. We all came out of Africa some 50,000 years ago. Bill is a descendant of one of the more adventuresome primates that left Africa. He's going back to help the more "stay at home" Africans that never left the continent.

Malnutrition is the biggest killer in Africa. Bill plans on spending the bulk of the money on feeding the underfed. And then what Bill? It's easier to have children than to feed children. The stay at home Africans never quite grasped that truism. It's ironic. Bill Gates has become fabulously wealthy by replacing hard-working people with software and effectively making them redundant. But now he wants to spend the profit from that enterprise in a de facto breeding program of particularly redundant people who can't feed their own redundant children.

Thursday Morning With Dick And George

Early Thursday morning Dick Cheney bolts into the private quarters of George and Laura Bush. Laura is munching on a cold pizza and reading a tabloid. She doesn't notice Dick. Bush is snoring loudly from under his pillow.

Cheney almost yelling, " Get up you worthless son of a bitch. You got a speech to make ".

Bush flips him the middle finger and asks, " What speech you fat fuck, chosen people or lower taxes?"

Now Cheney is red in the face, " It's the ' I really mean to bomb Iran' speech, you little jerk monkey".

Bush with a particularly dense-look, " Didn't I do that yesterday?".

Cheney in a panic, " Yeah but the market is down over 200. Goldman Sachs just advised clients to sell General Motors, Citigroup and Wall Street brokers. Ya can't trust those filthy Yankees and Jews at that kike firm. Next they will advise sales on Halliburton and the military-industrial complex. We've got to beat the war drums."

Now an anxious Bush fires, " Gee why did'nt you tell me earlier? Hey Dick when I'm out of here can I still have that Dairy Queen in El Paso?"

"You fuckin' useful idiot, of course you can. But don't look for me or Rummy or your pickaninny to come by . Get dressed".

McCain's Co-Chair & Wife And The "Enron Loophole"

Who created the "Enron loophole" which was the Trojan Horse for the subsequent oil futures manipulation? John McCain's "national co-chair" former Texas Senator Phil Gramm says in a June 13, 2008 letter issued by McCain headquarters that it wasn't him. The Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 is the bill that he sponsored. The bill contained the "Enron loophole" but Gramm says that idea came from another politician.

Hey Phil , what about the original "Enron loophole" that your wife Wendy L. Gramm granted when she was the Chairwoman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commision in 1991? Her "executive order" exempted Enron from "postion limits" and the rest is history.

Were you talking to your wife at that time?

Oil Profiteers: Goldman Sachs Or Exxon Mobil ?

The debate rages over $140 oil. Is it supply/demand and an oil industry windfall or Wall Street manipulation--- or both ? At least motorists can get a tank of gas from Exxon. What do motorists get from suspected oil futures manipulators like Goldman Sachs?

In the past 12 months Exxon Mobil had gross profit of $172 billion. It's net was $42 billion. The average wage of its 82,000 employees was $12,000 per year. By comparison in the past 12 months Goldman Sachs had gross profit of $88 billion. It's net after salaries and bonuses was $10 billion. The average wage of it's 26,000 employees was a staggering $622,000 per year.

Since 2000, Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street brokers have successfuly lobbied for a liberalization of oil futures regulation . Goldman has consistently wrote investment advisories predicting dramatically higher oil prices while simultaneously building large proprietary long postions. At the same time Goldman and others created large pools of pension funds and investors to buy oil futures for their respective portfolios and thus take advantage of the liberating new regulations on oil futures. The net result is higher oil prices without a shortage as the reason. And a large part of the revenue from increase in prices going to the criminals at Goldman and their investment pool accomplices.

Interestingly present Secretary of Treasury and former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry Paulson, said," The rise in oil futures is strictly [because] supply/demand." He is also against re-regulating the certain parts of oil futures trading that he had lobbied to change some years back while at Goldman!

Flooding Follows The Human

The old world in the east has lost most of its trees . By comparison the new world in the west still has a plentiful amount. The reason for the difference, according to anthropoligists, is that man settled in the east before migrating to the west. And so the trees were cut and the rivers were channelled and diverted. The recent flooding in China, Burma, India and Southeast Asia are the results of denuded land and the flood plains of rivers being inhabited with surplus people.

Our own Midwest is now experincing the same dynamic. The ongoing channelling of the Mississippi River , draining of wetlands , clearing of the Great Plains of natural grasses for crops and housing developments in flood plains have all contrbuted to the "500 year floods". The scourge of surplus humanity leaves its footprint in ever closer and closer high water marks.

Too, too many people.

Have You Hugged A Holocaust Survivor Lately?

My Assemblymember Ira Ruskin sent me an email this morning. He informed that as part of the Holocaust Remembrance Week, the California State Assembly had a Holocaust Memorial Ceremony at the Capitol on April 28 of this year. Ira described how 60 bona fide holocaust survivors were paired with 60 young students. The students were told to interview the survivors and then write an essay about the genocide and mistreatment of Jews. The younsters were being sensitized to the Jewish plight. Lunch was provided by California taxpayers.

I didn't vote for Ira Ruskin. But Assemblymembers of California should be preoccupied with California affairs. Reps shouldn't be a tool to indoctrinate unsuspecting youngsters about the Jewish condition without giving equal time to victims of the Jewish experience like the Palestinians as one example. Ira Ruskin didn't do this.

If Ira wants to perpetuate the holocaust story let him do it on his own time. He should get together with the Jewish elders and plan for the day when all the holocaust survivors are gone. After all they are getting quite old. How about marketing the holocaust remembrance with a joint effort with corporate sponsors? For instance, Costco could private label a "Holocaust Charcoal" with a portion of the proceeds going to the srvivors of the holocaust survivors and their reps in government? Lenscrafters could provide special recycle bins in their outlets for used eyeglasses. The Zales Jewelry Store chain could have recepticles for used rings and necklaces. Then people who choose to remember can remember.

I have met decent Jews. They don't preach about the holocaust. The story of the Jewish experience has two sides.

What's The Difference Between A Republican And A Democrat?

According to "The Kingfish" Huey Long the 1930s Governor and Senator of Louisiana, "The difference between a republican and a democrat is the democrat will skin you from the ear down while the republican skins you from the ankle up".

And so the difference between former disgraced Republican Speaker of the House Tom DeLay and the current Speaker Nancy Pelosi is negligible. On Pelosi's watch, we have $8 corn and $ 140 oil and a subprime meltdown. Israel continues to build illegal settlements with U.S funding on Palestinian land. Bush is talking to the Iraqis about long term bases. Where is the voice of oppostion or the voice with a plan to mitigate these catastrophes? Anyone hear Speaker Pelosi with a plan?

Maybe she likes it this way. Certainly she's not much better than Tom DeLay. When someone is silent who is in a postion to make a difference then the silence is assumed to mean satisfaction with the status quo. If the democrats add to their majority in the coming elections and also take the presidency they may try for more gun control. After seeing Pelosi and DeLay one should never give up their personal protection against Congress.

Racial Slurs & Sexism In Presidential Politics

Poor Hillary and Michelle and Barack, they are complaining about sexist and/or racist abuse in the media coverage of their campaigns. What do the three have in common? They are not a straight white male. Apparently they are not accustomed to that kind of treatment. The SWM that have run for the highest office in the land since our founding have all been abused . They have been verbally and editorially abused about their race, ethnic backround, religion, physical characteristics etc. Some have even been killed. That's the ultimate abuse.

If minorities and/or women want to run for the highest office of the land then this type of racist/sexist abuse goes with the territory . Part of the chore of getting elected is to talk about the issues in a meaningful ways. If that is done then the candidates are not the focus and the race and or sex disappears.

George The Vulgar

Simple, vulgar George Bush's foreign policy is "Kill, kill, kill" and his domestic policy is "Drill, drill, drill". Those are the two primary missions of our would be emperor and chimp-in-chief. The goals were pointed out by two of the most powerful lobbys in our country---the military- industrial- complex and the fossil fuel industry respectively. And chimpy is the perfect messanger. He doesn't ask questions because he doesn't know what questions to ask. And this trait dovetails perfectly with the requirement to continue policies inspite of their real world failures.

Chimpy just landed in Rome. He will be visting Pope Benedict XVI. The Pope is the heir to the what's left of the Roman Empire. Chimpys Air Force One mentally juxtaposed to Vatican City tells a tale. The Roman Empire is now an enclave and a would-be emporer's transportation is more a sore eyeful like some graffitti on an ancient architectural wonder. Whatever the excesses and problems with the Roman's were -and there were many- the Romans did have a rich culture and style. That's more than can be said about chimpy and the Pope.

Super Monkeys & Supercomputing

The IBM companys new $100 million supercomputer called "Roadrunner" can perform 1,000 trillion calculations per second in a sustained exercise. Or more simply it can do in one day what 6 billion people with handheld computers in 24 hours can do in 46 years.

Now what do we super monkeys want with a supercomputer? Scientist monkeys at IBM say their computer will be used mainly for nuclear weapons research. For instance the "Roadrunner" can mimic the blast of a thermonuclear bomb. It's a kind of nuclear holocaust masturbation exercise.The seduction of oblivion beckons but not in the way directed by Buddha.

USAF & The Ultra Violent Video Game

U.S. Air Force Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) "Predator" and "Reaper" pilots sit in comfortable booths in the United States. Their UAVs armed with high resolution cameras and missiles prowl the air space above Iraq and Afghanistan. Then the cool, no sweat pilots press a button on their "joystick" and send down laser guided bombs to the unsuspecting below. The victims include combatants, civilians and hapless flora and fauna. This is followed by the pollution of smoke and the detritus of the organisms. At the end of the work day, the "pilot" of the ultra violent video game goes home for a completely different experience. That's cold.

The 16th century writer John Lyly said, " The rules of fair play do not apply in love and war". That's his opinion. The lovers or combatants are either diminished or are enriched by the way they played the game.

AIDS & STD & The Overpopulation Problem

The front page of todays San Francisco Chronicle gushes in anticipation of a possible early start of homosexual marriages in the City . Fag- hag Mayor Gavin Newsom is dutifully trying his best for his impatient glory hole backers in Hollywood. He wants to move the time from June 17 to 5:01 P.M. on June 16. Is this too exciting or what? Ah to be alive and witness these fascinating and wonderful times!

Upon turning the page, the Chronicle carries an article titled "Teen Sex, No Longer Declining". What's more, the details of the piece quotes the Center for Disease Control stats on 1 in 4 teenage girls across all races now have a sexually transmitted disease. That's 25% of the upcoming breeding stock. Also teen pregnancy is on the rise after a decade-long decline. The CDC didn't speculate about the causes for the ominous figures. But the article said experts opined that "complacency about AIDS and changing attitudes about types of sex" were the reasons. AIDS has been sold as a cause celebre because of politicians and Hollywood. Somehow the completely avoidable disease is talked about in terms of bad luck or attacking the poor minorities dispropotinately etc. Anything or any excuse rather than commenting on the poor judgement about what part of the body is to be used for what particular function.

Coincidentally the 25% number also turns up in sub-Sahara Africa. Our black brothers and sister monkeys have an infection of AIDS/HIV at the same percentage of STDs showing up in our teen girls population-25%. The Africans just do what comes naturally. We in the highly "civilized" West change laws so we can sodomize legally . Are we more smart?

We are seeing the future for a mitigation of the human overpopulation problem. It's spelled AIDS and STD. But now the party is beginning. Send out the invitations .Forget about tomorrow. And the children are watching. Newsom's pencil neck is being fitted for a dress shirt and tie instead of a more appropriate public exhibition in stocks fitted for self-made morons.

"Hurry, hurry, hurry CIRCUS AIPAC is in town". The American Israel Public Affairs Committee's greatest lobbyists show on earth is now featuring special demand performance acts. Come see presidential hopefuls, John "Shakey' McCain and Barack "Plural Man" Obama perform for 4 foot something Zionists and their shorter wives. Also appearing will be Secretary of State "Kind O' Ninny" Rice and white woman Speaker Nancy " Scarf Lady" Pelosi along with Senate Majority Leader Harry " Pathetic Mumbles" Reid. Other surprise guests could be added.

Watch how featured performers pledge America's assets and young lives for the well being of the ghetto Israel which is on stolen Palestinian land. Hey come visit Israel also. It features the largest open-air prison on the planet. Approximately 1.5 million Palestinians are subject to a slow motion genocide every day. Why? Zionists swear by their mothers instructions, " Don't buy or own anything that eats". In other words "cut your losses".

Oh the irony of it all. Two thousand years ago the Romans watched Zionists get chomped on by lions in the Coliseum now the Zionists watch representatives of the last empire do tricks for chump change. Enough already. Time for a swing back to more understandable times. Round up U.S. reps in Congress that sold out to AIPAC and show them the exits. Hey round up AIPAC also and ship them to Israel

Warren Buffett: Richest Man & Garbage Man

Warren Buffett is the world's richest man according to Forbes. He is estimated to be worth $62 billion. His flagship investment vehicle is Berkshire Hathaway. He has guided Berkshire's investments since the late 1960s. His investment philosophy is simple. Buy well-run disposable branded products that make loyal- repeat- user consumers. Then it's just multiplication of the population that takes over. The premise of the philosophy is at once brilliant and also vulgar.

The investment portfolio of Berkshire feature the likes of Coca-Cola, Anheuser-Buch,Gillette, McDonalds,Dairy Queen, Mars-Sees Candies, Wrigley Chewing Gum, American Express, Wal-Mart, Procter & Gamble etc. The consumer disposables created his wealth but also fostered human obestity and mountains of packaging and manufacturing garbage as a by-product. Most people only talk about the wealth side of the equation. But on a zero sum planet "wealth" has to come from some other thing that is diminished like water, clean environments, etc.

But things are changing. Now and increasingly in the future successful inventors and investors will have a guiding philosophy that first asks the question, " How much garbage will my product produce?" and secondly ask "How much will my product improve what nature offers perfectly?"

Condoleezza Rice Or Kind O' Ninny Rice?

Has there been a worse Secretary of State then Condoleezza Rice? No. She mostly condemns herself everytime she opens her mouth. For instance, she compared the 2003 invasion of Iraq to the "1960s Civil Rights movement in the South". Also in 2006 when Israel savagely bombed Lebanon's infrastructure and killed over 1000 innocent Lebanese civilians in the process she described the slaughter as "birth pangs of democracy". Recently she claimed a victory in the Iraq war because it had a "functioning democracy". I wonder what failure would look like to her?

Frankly she's a classic pickaninny. A pickaninny is a smallish African-American that is more than slightly behind .Putting her in designer clothes and straighteneing her hair is not fooling many. Kind O' Ninny Rice would be a more appropriate tag. The bucked teeth with the gap along with the didactic screehy voice nails it shut for me of her general unattractiveness. The gap in the front teeth hints at the gap in competence. In her defense she's smarter than Bush. That's more a cause for worry by the nation.

It's understood that when she leaves Washington she will return to academia and become a teaching professor. Students may consider buying dental strips for their front teeth and either writing gap on them or just blackening them to give the illusion of the gap of Kind O" Ninny's. There is an old saying that if 1000 monkeys had 1000 word processors they would recreate Shakespeare's works given enough time. Well to paraphrase that prediction, given enough time and money in an environment of political correctness the U.S. would come up with a pickaninny for Secretary of State. Well I'd say "Q.E.D.".
