But Did He Get That Penny?

I don’t know who this Peter Schiff is.  He could be the biggest fucking douchenozzle on the planet, and based on the fact that he is a contributor on the Fox Business Network, that is a strong possibility.  Even so I haven’t seen a video clip I have enjoyed more in a while, and I am including this, this, and this.  Watch this guy school these rightwing losers (Ben Stein, call on line 1!) who are recommending people buy Bear Sterns and Merrill Lynch because they are so cheap.  And one of them even recommends WaMu!  How did that work out for you assholes?

According to wiki, Peter Schiff is a Paultard, but a very smart one.

Did you see and hear the looks of disgust and groans? I don’t think he’ll ever get that penny although he probably should be yelling at each of those assholes to “Suck IT! Suck IT!”

The guy unfolded the scenario I saw (albeit with non expert eyes.) Ever since I was burned in the tech bubble (lost about $10K in my own hard earned money outside of the pensions) I read more than a few books on high finance to understand (a little.) I did not like what I read.

But this is why I really hate Financial hexperts because they’ve proven to be more cheerleaders than giving real advice. These were the same assholes who thought that 40% growth year over year was realistic. Uh, right.

All around me are familiar faces
No safe places, Worn out phrases
Bright and early for their fiscal races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And the (Wall St) koolaid is filling up their glasses
No expansion, all contraction
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which Wall St is busted
Are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
‘Cos I find it hard to take
When people talk in circles
It’s a very, very
Mad World

Brokers waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Crash Day, Happy Crash Day
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to the bank and I was very nervous
No one had cash no one had cash
Hello mister tell me what’s my lesson
It’s all bullshit, It’s all bullshit
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which Wall St is busted
Are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
‘Cos I find it hard to take
When people talk in circles
It’s a very, very
Mad World
Mad World
Crashing your world
Mad World.

Well, Manchu, you do forget the Hillbot supporter calling Barry an inadequate black male. That was instant classic material. Running close was the slice of The Onion regarding the Jacksonville Jaguars’ po-mo contemplation of a coin toss.

I was thinking about this some time ago: any interest in developing some sort of ad hoc year-end awards? The Stinqueys? This should be done somehow.

HF. Thanks for the link to the wonderful children singing, dancing and showing why the rest of the world wants to be us. Radiant.
