I haven't read anything like this in a long time...

"you appear to be ideally suited for a job as an auditor. Have you considered submitting a resume to the Pentagon?" Beautiful! laughing out loud

Ashalee, I . . . um .. . have been guilty of similar miscalculations but haven't published any . . . so far! The scale of the Fed's heist works in its favour, I think. It's like trying to think in lightyears for distance . . . mind numbing .. . . which brings us back to these thieves in suits.

This won't do anything to fix the economy but does help to take ones mind off the problem. smiling

I kinda like...

I kinda like the sound of that: "Winter Patriot, POTUS" - although seeing a photo of duhbaya slurping (probably vodka) from his POTUS mug while basking in the glory of his hijacked 747, well, the acronym has sort of caught in my throat, and even on my keyboard...

If only this were the real math

But this sort of math is most in keeping with the era we are moving into.
"How did that happen" they (our elite masters) say as every plot and criminal act unfolds i.e stolen elections, stolen government, unprovoked destruction of a nation (Iraq). We didn't mean to make such a huge mess so ya can't put us in jail. I think Obama must think the people screaming for him are complete idiots. Hes certainly not stupid so I wonder if he quietly despises these people. He says anything at all and they scream. There cannot be any real joy from such praise other than a deeply perverted satisfaction.

I'd say the best investment right now would be cheap vodka, coke or whatever. You can bet that ramped up production is waiting in the wings and you can also bet they will prosecute the shit out of competition from home production. i.e. stills etc.


Humans are not too big to fail. In fact, it appears that we have failed.

Thus says hubris.

Winter - RE: Hersh Says Cheney had Bhutto....


The story that you linked at on your latest post "Hersh Says Cheney Had Bhutto Assassinated For Saying Osama bin Laden Is Dead"

now says this:

I did not say Cheney killed Benazir: Seymour Hersh

"The story regarding Hersh’s reported claim that Cheney ordered the assassination of Benazir Bhutto was published on our website among other publications. We regret the error.

WASHINGTON: American journalist Seymour Hersh on Monday denied news reports that quoted him as saying a ‘special death squad’ working under former US vice president Dick Cheney had killed Benazir Bhutto.

‘Vice President Cheney does not have a death squad. I have no idea who killed Mr Hariri or Ms Bhutto. I have never said that I did have such information. I most certainly did not say any thing remotely to that effect during an interview with an Arab media outlet,’ Hersh said.

‘General McChrystal ran a special forces unit that engaged in High Value Target activity. While I have been critical of some of that unit's activities in the pages of the New Yorker and in interviews, I have never suggested that he was involved in political assassinations or death squads on behalf of Mr Cheney, as the published stories state.’

‘I have never been asked by any journalist…about such allegations. This is another example of blogs going bonkers with misleading and fabricated stories and professional journalists repeating such rumours without doing their job -- and that is to verify such rumours,’ Hersh said. "

The link on the sidebar still reads 'Cheney Ordered Assassination of Benazir Bhutto' but it takes you to the above story.

Did you save the original text perhaps?

Thanks! NO!

Hi McJ:

Thanks for this catch. I was already blogging about it when I saw your comment. Great minds think alike, and at the same time, too!

No! I did not mamage to save the original text. I would normally save it at Winter Parking, but Blogger was down, or seemed to be. I went to bed last night under the impression that my post at Winter Patriot had not been published (and ticked about it too) and I didn't find out otherwise until I logged on this morning and saw it sitting there. Oh well.

And now this. Beautiful.
