Todays front page of the San Francisco Chronicle has Speaker Nancy Pelosi walking down Pennsylvania Avenue surrounded with her democratic allies. The photo was taken yesterday. She's carrying the super-sized gavel that was used when Medicare was passed in 1965. The smile on her face was gleeful and tempted the gods. The gavel could be a metaphor for a large dildo and her smile could be one of relief from a large orgasm.
But now it's over Pelosi. The bill passed late last night . Now live with the aftermath and hangover of bankrupting government handiwork.

Blue Fin Tuna stock has collapsed. Eighty percent of the "tiger of the sea" have been slaughtered and ended up mostly in some Japanese stomach. What a way to go. Its fate is largely representative of fish and mammals that humans eat. Efforts to cut back on the killings have largely come to nothing. The most recent example was yesterday when a proposal to limit fishing of the Tuna was voted down by concerned countries. What will happen if the fish go extinct which some are predicting could happen in app. 10-20 years? To quote Scarlett O'Hara, "Tommorrow is another day." So in the mean time its a race to take the Blue Fin to the brink while making the most per ounce while the countdown to extinction goes on.
Also China is licking its collective, smelly chops for more Shark Fin soup and the devestation that brings to shark stocks. Estimates range up to 70 million sharks a year are killed to feed the Asian appetites. All those newly minted middle class Chinaman are bewildering.
I'm struck by the possible postive side effects of a massive human flu and epidemic.

The push for "healthcare reform" is the latest folly of political correctness. America will be bankrupted by this peice of legilation which will extend full service healthcare to the great unwashed, uncaring and unhealthy .
But if it passes, then we will be one quick step closer to the final day of reckoning when all things politically correct will be eliminated because of unsustainability and costliness.

Today Citigroup's CEO Vikram Pandit was talking up the prospects of his bank. He said it would soon be profitable. He also said that going forward he wanted to concentrate his banks activities and loan portfolio in favor of "emerging markets".
One of the problems with America's weak recovery is a lack of credit that is available to small and large business. Also this is the same bank that received over $45 billion from the American taxpayor. But he wants to go to Asia with his best efforts.
Go to hell Citigroup.

At the same time the U.S. -capitalism-is fighting creeping socialism, China - communism-is fighting creeping legions of the bourgeoisie. Where will the outcome leave both countries and their governments? One has to refer to the laws of physics to get a peak at the future of these two diametrically opposed philosophies. Physics dictates that only the low cost producer will survive. In this application , only the elements of both societies will remain after both governments collapse because of their own nonrelavance.
And the winner will be the individual with skills.
