Economic Meltdown, Financial Press & Electoral Politics

Markets are swirling down the shitter, economy can’t be far behind, and one wonders what this all means. Now PhysioProf is no economist–he’s just a belligerent asshole with a keyboard and an IP address–so if you want real solid economic analysis go to Agonist and read what Stirling Newberry, Ian Welsh, and Numerian have to say. But I watched the Democratic debate last night, I watched CNBC Squawk Box this morning, and I consider myself a semi-sentient being. So here are a few thoughts:

(1) All these pudgy soft assholes in custom suits and garish neckties on teevee peddling “financial analysis” are total fucking liars. Whether they are intentional liars, or just blinded by their intrinsic biases, I can’t say. But it is a certainty that every single god damn word that passes through their lips is filtered through a system of finely ground lenses that warps everything towards supporting the financial interests they share with the corporate oligarchy and the big-money compulsive-gambler Wall Street playas.

They don’t give a single flying fuck about “the economy”, “the American people”, “financial analysis”, or any of the other happy horseshit they pretend they are talking about. They care about one thing–the continued viability of the corporate oligarchy and related socioeconomic elite classes of which they are all members.

When Jim Cramer looks into the camera and talks about what “we need” from the Fed, from the government, from the banks, do you really think that “we” includes ordinary working Americans? Fuck no!! It is him and his fellow Wall Street playas, and he and his fellow “financial analysts” are peddling a load of steaming horseshit designed to hornswoggle the rubes listening into doing exactly what will continue allowing the corporate oligarchs and their associates to continue fucking those rubes in the ass.

The “markets” want rate cuts because it will allow them to “back out positions in an orderly fashion”–i.e., keep throwing bags of money in the back of the Hummer. Guess whose money that is? Yep: it’s yours.

(2) All these craven asshole “financial analysts” talk about the current economic clusterfuck as if it is just the consequence of the operation of some unthinking, unfeeling force of nature, that policies, decisions, actions, and statements of human beings had absofuckinglutely nothing whatsoever to do with. It is one of those things that “just happens”, and now we have to react to it, without looking backwards.

Guess what? More grotesque fucking lies, specifically and intentionally designed to obscure one salient fact: This shit is going down as a clear consequence of intentional decisions made at the corporate and governmental levels to push the limits of how much money could be stolen from the vast overwhelming majority of American citizens and given to an elite few. And the ideological underpinnings of this massive theft of wealth are the clearly espoused principles of lassez faire free-market capitalism that are one leg of the depraved neo-feudal platform of the conservative political movement. Problem is, these fuckers got too greedy.

(3) One of the things I noticed about the Democratic presidential debate last night is that the candidates seem to be getting much more comfortable referring to Bush as the irredeemable fucknozzle that he is. The Democrats should be hammering the point that our national clusterfuck–economic, civil liberties, military, governmental, environmental, press, healthcare, etc–is not just some random coincidence of unfortunate happenstance. Rather, it is the apotheosis–brought into perfect culmination by Bush and his sick fuck cronies–of the avowed conservative plan to turn the United States into a feudal fucking estate, and ordinary citizens into serfs.

And they should make it abundantly clear in no uncertain terms that nothing less than absolute repudiation of the conservative movement, the Republican Party, and the neo-confederate neo-feudal slavering dogs left within it, coupled with a warm embrace of progressive principles of society and government, is going to avert that end.

    Close the banks, and repeal the slavery laws,
    it’s your money and your life.

    Close the banks, before they make summer too expensive,
    before spring is extinct.

    Close the banks, they are a Vampire Death Cult,
    Drakula is alive and well, in a branch near you.

    Close the banks, and ‘abolish capital punishment;
    the people have always been punished by capital’.

    Close the banks, ‘their’ capital is our time on earth,
    the amassed toil of generations, stolen without pity,
    we have enough laundries that don’t work.

    Close the banks, the Politicians Pimps,
    the Multinational Vandals,
    the Stooges of the Rate of the Dollar.
    They make deals with genocidal murderers.

    Close the banks, and open your hearts!
    The money has all gone, so join the real economy
    and STOP THE CITY.

    Close the Banks, this is one debt we owe ourselves.

    This whole effort is like when you take the plug out of a full bath, the water goes down nice and slow then all of a sudden you get that awful sucking sound.

    its not just your money, its all us suckers who bet by default on the US and its good name. My bank is owned by Australian banks who bet on AAA rated americans who took out mortgages that they could not afford.

    Lets face it the banksters new these people could not afford alt-a, subprime and even prime loans. They were betting on a greater fool buying the securities. Well here we are :)

    They securitised this shit, the ratings cock gobblers gave it AAA, then sold it as solid to, well everyone. We all got caught in the draft. Next time you come to us for a loan the risk payment is going to be huge, mark my words.

    Anyway, my buddies mortgages just went up cause some six fingered, gun toting, bush voting good old boy could not make his mortgage and truck payment. Sorry but fuck him and fuck America, you have economicaly screwed me for the last time.

    China owns you and those suckers are evil MoFo’s. They won’t let you default on the 1.3Teeeeeerillion USD LOAN that you have with them. They are going to raise the interest and your grandkids grandkids will still have not health cover so that they can pay the chinese overlords!

    Those bad asian gangsters know how hard it is to eat a grain of rice a day, so buckle up your lard arse, you about to slim down. courtesey of the rest of the world.

    I am so excersised about this shit, physioprof and co, I love the frickin USA, you took us to the moon. You sorted WWII, and gave me the itertubes. Fuck me you guys gave us some cool shit(skateboards come to mind) and something aspirational to look up to (JFK,MLK,Ali,the Muppets…). But like everything you gotta pay for it, and I don’t want to pay for the shrivelled dicks hubris. Who has a cocaine shrivilled dick ,the decider who is presidentin over the best economy turned to the worst in 7 short years.

    Iraq, quagmire accomplished. Katrina/New orleans he fucked it, next stop main street. Not just main street USA but down town Auckland, home to 1.5 million people, is going to carry the cost of GWB, Greeenspan and his frothy, sub prime loving bullshit. Fuckers need to be beaten to death with their cum stained copies of ‘atlas shrugged’ and framed copies of MBA’s and PHD’s. Would personally shove greenies sax up his jaxie(arse, bum, poohole etc).

    The best thing to come of this economic debacle is that on the other side, and there will be another side to it, is that the US reputaion and the rep of the FED is in the shitter. No longer will we need to listen to your American exceptionalist bollocks. You will be like the Pom’s (English) ex colonialists who can only bully Argentina…

    At the end of the day all the fuckers that voted for the ongoing fuckup that is GWB will all have a road to Damascus moment and figure that the NeoCon fantasy of supply side freidmanite voodoo big spending govt got their ass kicked by a bunch of dudes with AK 47’s and mobile phones, and those same turkeys will be payin the bill for decades to come. ha ha suckers, Bushco is laughing at you too.

    GWB is looking old and scared now, he knows that come Jan 2009 he has to fuck off to paraguay.

    Sabarnes Oxley, congressional oversight,Fed banking regulation all on holiday in Aruba kidnapping and killing white girls………..
