Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Quote of the Day - Gloom and Doom Edition

"The Governments don't Rule the world.  Goldman Sachs rules the world.  Goldman Sachs does not care about this rescue package, neither does the big funds."
      -- Alessio Rastani, (rent seeking lizard person)

That is not the most striking statement in this video.  I urge you to watch the whole thing.  It's only 3 1/2 minutes.

Though I cannot admire Mr. Rastani, it is hard to argue with his assessment of the situation:  stock markets are toast, the Euro will collapse, and the U.S. dollar is one of the best safe havens



 For those of us in the reality based world, Rastani's dismal assessment seems quite probable.  Have you ever heard anyone comment on trans-national mega corporations who have no allegiance to anybody or anything?  That is the world where you live, and you might as well learn to deal with it.

Wow. We are really screwed.
