Goldman Sachs: Death Spiral?

Oh were it to be true that the plunging shares of Goldman Sachs would be a mere prelude to its collapse. That would be wonderful justice to this rogue firm. Its stock is off 14% to 146.00 on news that a criminal investigation has been launched. The SEC filed civil fraud charges last week and referred to the U.S attorneys office its facts on GS for possible criminal prosecution.

Financial service companies can literally disappear overnight if they lose their credibility- witness Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers. Goldman profited from Bear Stearns and Lehman's demise. What goes around comes around. An extra bonus would be a lessening flow of donations to the Zionist criminal enterprise a.k.a. Israel.

Next Civil War?

Some people think that Americas Civil War was justified. I'm not one of them. Killing 700,000 plus citizens in the pursuit of freeing the kitchen help strikes as me as the height of foolishness. Now Arizona has passed legislation that will hopefully turn back the flow of illegal felons who come to America. I hope other states will follow. And if the U.S. government wants to stop that kind of self-defense legislation then they may get a modern civil war that is entirely justified. Anyone for enlisting in an Arizona militia?

Goldman Sachs & Savvy Investors

Goldman Sachs executive testimony before U.S. Senators kept referring to their clients as savvy investors who understood complex financial derivatives. Oh yea. Then everyone knew that they had the capability to bring down the whole worlds economies. How savvy is that?

China: Enter The Nationalize Dragon

China is in the news today. The peering government that could be called "Chink"because of squinting inspection, continues to roll out compulsory snitching guidelines for telecom service providers from any part of the world who operate there. Google balked at cooperating and moved ops to Hong Kong. It seems that China will nationalize private information first. Second it's a mere hop and and a skip to nationalize plants owned by foreign business. The clumsy and greedy of the West are easily trapped by the reptilian Chinese.

Don't Look Too Close

A Russian proverb says ," Give me the mans name and I'll find his crime". An anonymous saying is "Nobody can bare close scrutiny". An explanation for these similar statements could be that the closer anyone is examined the more that isolated facts are taken out of context.

Hence rhetorical arguments and half truths mistakenly characterize.

Supreme Court Got It Wrong

Black flowing robes cover primates as they sit in classical buildings. They observe the customs , mummeries and procedures of Supreme court lawgivers. Yesterday our motely group with an 8 to 1 decision allowed that it was OK to produce and sell videos of animal torture and death. These types of films are called crush films. The super majority opinion thought there were some instances that could impinge on First Amendment rights of citizens if these films were outlawed. For example, a video of a cock fight in Puerto Rico could be a criminal offense if the video was found in someones possesion in the U.S. Well for that one example and some other possibilities a whole menu of ugly and gratuitous maiming , torture and death of hapless and helpless animals are now eligible to become stars in real-life horror movies. Just so we can protect the sick and morbidly curious human. What's next?

There are too many laws with too little critical thinking about the possible unintended consequences of those laws. A better world would allow the immediate assassination of animal abusers on the spot.

Two al-Qaida Dead: BFD

Headlines screamed that 2 al-Qaida leaders were killed in Iraq over the weekend! Also in the news was airlines at standstill because of volcanic ash. Also new figures show over 1.3 million Iraqis killed since the invasion. Also Goldman Sachs reported record profits due to its skill in fraud. Also Catholic priests scandal stretches into Latin America. More suicide bombings in Iraq. More suicide bombings in Pakistan. More suicide bombings in Afghanistan. More friendly fire deaths in all theaters of U.S. engagements. More civilians deaths in all theaters of U.S. engagements.

But, hey, the news of two al-Qaida leaders dead was right there up in lights. Where has critical thinking gone? I'll tell you. When you have too much money you can get by for a time without critical thinking. A bankrupt America will bring back more critical thinking.

Citigroup Wins in Trading Markets

Citigroup reported a $4.5 billion profit in its latest quarter. It was due largely to trading profits from its brokerage division. Is this a way to run a banking institution? Bank depositors have to carry the burden of hoping their bankers guess correctly when trading stocks, bonds and financial instruments. If not then the deposits end up in someone else's pocket.

The Gods Turn on Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs opened its new $2.1 billion pretentious headquarters. It's a monument to how much money can be made by lying cheats who produce NOTHING. GS Director Rajat Gupta resigns due to allegations he's connected to an unfolding insider trading scandal with Galleon Securities and today the SEC charge GS with civil fraud in a subprime hedge fund offering. This happened all in one week. The gods turn quickly when hubris envelops mortals.

Hopefully the civil fraud turns into a criminal case. Maybe RICO charges may come later if other Wall Street gangsters are shown to be connected to the SEC action. This is necessary. There has to be consequences for the past financial debacle.

Was Andrew Stern of SEIU Threatened ?

"Socialistic Fanatic Union Boss Resigns After Major Victory" could be an incredulous headline. But in fact Andrew Stern of the Service Employees International Union resigned today. He was recently appointed to a prestigious Presidential commission by Barack Obama on ways to cut the deficit. This was a partial payback for all the work that the SEIU did in helping BO get elected. Also his union has been the equivalent of street thugs-Hitler had "Brown Shirts"- for the democratic party in squelching dissent at "town hall" meetings no matter who ran the meeting.  That "i" in the SEIU stands for international and probably meant he would take his union around the world as per the communists of the 1920s. Yet he resigned. 

Could he be fearful for his security and health? Has he been threatened?

Possible Lexus Recall Hysteria

When it rains it pours. Toyota's hubris and greed has led it to lose credibility by its massive recall of vehicles due to sudden acceleration. Now the trusted "Consumer Reports" has issued a very rarely used "Don't Buy" advisory on the Toyota manufactured 2010 Lexus GX 460. CR claims there is a rollover danger. Toyota immediately reponded and pulled the model off the market today. They had sold 4800 units so far.

I can see it now. Hysterical reporting claiming a Lexus rollover when PARKED simply by opening the driver-side door!

What's That Smell? It's the Chinese Middle Class

With all due respect to domesticated Chinese-Americans, it's alarming that their mainland home China now is producing middle class by the pallet full. Just yesterday China anounced a trade DEFICIT with its trading partners in the amount of $7 billion. Also China recently anounced that their domestic car sales are up 63% over last year. That puts them on track to consume over 13 million cars this year. That's 25% larger than Americas projected total. While there will be more Chinese killed in the crosswalks in Bejing by the visually, peripherally impaired , it will not be nearly enough to curb this unfolding environmental peril.

China has app. 1.25 billion munching, belching and defecating organisms. Imagine how many great swaths of forest will disappear worldwide overnight when all those types get credit cards. How many species will go extinct?How much fresh air will be polluted with rancid cooking greases and coal-fired plants? Buy American folks and starve the pests out.

Blue fin tuna wont have a chance. Eighty percent of their numbers have disappeared and ended up in Japanese bellies who consume 80% of the yearly catch. And now the Chinese are weighing in. Well if a war breaks ot between the Japanese and Chinese over the last sushi then the Blue fin will have a chance.

War these days between environmental terrorists has its definite upside.

Israel Learning Shame?

Israel's Prime Minister has made a turnaround about attending a nuclear summit in Washington. Two days ago he was coming. Today he's staying home. But he's sending a delegation. The reason given by his spokesman was "other" nations would use the forum to talk about Israel's 200 or so nuclear weapons. I.E. How can Zionists wag their finger at anyone about nukes when they themselves are sitting on a pile with a delivery system also?

On second thought, this would be the first time that a Zionist has been shamed into keeping their hypocritical personalities out of sight. Now that would be a first. What is the reason then? Who knows? One thing for sure is their injustice and slow-motion genocide of the Palestinians will be returned to them with interest. Justice has never failed to show up.

Poor Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is in the news today with more shameless self promotion. She's wearing the latest expensive wig that was in style with white women in the 1950s. She doesn't get it. Not only is the style too retro and not appropriate, but the wig features her very monkey face in the extreme.

Politicians Threatened By Death: Temporary or New Normal?

Today the F.B.I. reported the arrest of a person who threatened murder to Senator Patty Murray of Washington. Also today the F.B.I. announced the arrest of a man who threatened to kill both House Speker Nancy Pelosi  and her husband, Paul. Last week Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who is also the Republican minority whip, got a death threat and a bullet hole in his office window. The man who threatened Cantor was arrested. It's not clear whether he 's also the one that fired the gun. All arrested people used the passage of the unpopular healthcare bill as the reason. While Cantor was opposed to the passage of the bill, the F.B.I. maintained that the healthcare bill was the reason for he being targeted. It should be noted that Cantor is an active Zionist. He supports Israel and preaches that America should support it at all costs against all countries and all peoples. No matter what the cost to the U.S. I suspect his allegiance to Israel upsets more than a few people.

Trouble in paridise. Is this the end of the salad days for low talented, no moral compass reps in Congress? Is there a price for lies, wars without end and binge spending by this criminal class ? I hope so. Congress does crimes in a legal way. Therefore, by definition, to oppose Congress with the same kind of brute force they use is termed illegal. The laws of the lands didn't protect the French nobility when they lost their heads or the British Empire when the colonials seized America from King George II.

The three people who were involved in the Murray, Pelosi and Cantor episodes don't appear to be related or commomly organized. They just had the same idea at the same time. That's the most dynamic kind of movement- instant recognition and plans by everyday people happening in a spontaneous way. Lookout if they get organized.

P.S. My new book of fiction predicts revolution in the U.S. It's titled " Contempt of Congress: Bay Boomers Talk, Sex, Race, Politics, Environment & Revolution" . Fiction today, fact tomorrow.

Personal Advice on Healthcare Coverage for the Healthy

The recent passage of "healthcare reform" offers opportunity for healthy people to save money on insurance coverage. Since insurnace companies can no longer refuse coverage on pre-existing illness, it makes no sense to pay premiums if one is healthy. So healthy people should drop coverage and pay the relatively cheap penalty. But when the healthy become sick then just sign up for coverage and get all that is due you without caps. I don't know how long this will last. Because the the rate paying sick will eventually bankrupt the system.

iPad: Mixed Reviews

iPad reviews according to Twitter are mixed at best. Certainly the price of Apple stock is not prepared for this lukewarm reception by the legions of Appleheads. The biggest rap is price compared to apparent usefulness. The second wrap is it's too hard to operate. This refers to no physical keyboard and weight of 1 1/2 pounds. Also there is no angle for typing unless an accessory is also bought.

So western civilizations poster product for economic recovery has met the reality of the consumer.

Preacher Obama Is Tiresome

I'm not a church-going man. I don't disapprove of churches or church- going people. To each his own. But I do disapprove of Preacher Obama. He and his loyalists are constantly wagging their fingers at me and others about how "we" owe ever increasing amounts of care to others. He and his followers have an attitude of religious rightousness about them that is nauseating. This is paricularly bothersome when he directs expensive aid to people who don't take themselves seriously . Why should I care about someone when that someone doesn't care about him or herself? That person may choose to be overweight, choose to have a sexually transmitted disease, choose to game the system of entitlements, etc. Let them reap their harvest.

There is money in mega churches. But there's more money and power in mega government. That's why Obama choose the biggest bully pulpit.

Shut up Preacher Obama .
