I spent the day in the heat, painting.
The healthcare decision was bullshit. How can you tax a product some people don’t want to buy? Fuck you very much, Roberts, I hope you choke on cancer you dirty turncoat.
If I thought Obama was going to win reelection, that’s changed now. They just threw a firecracker into an army ant nest. No amount of PR media spin bullshit is going to save the liberals from this. Democrat congressmen had better stay 1,000 yards away from any party convention center, because they’re dead.
My only solace is knowing that sometime in the next two years, we’ll experience a bond crisis, just like Europe – a.k.a. that place that we just have to be like because their healthcare is so awesome – and it will send prices soaring, effectively killing off all these jackasses I’m supposed to be insuring and driving anyone who promoted this from office.
We are very close to a purging fire. The people who pushed this are the same people who can’t balance a checkbook. We have a string of major events coming into the close of the year – the debt ceiling and the tax extensions being two of them. Let’s see how interested people are in buying bonds when they see fuckers like Rangel try and count on public television.
Meanwhile, in Europe, the old idiots are all still dumb. There was some rumor of a can kick. Okay, sure. Let me hear Merkel say it.
I guess if they want to destroy the euro, that’s fine. Commodities will keep falling, because the dollar will keep spiking until Bernanke can’t stomach it anymore. And a can kick in no way helps their economies.
I’m slowly gathering much silver for my person, almost like I have a bow tie on. Life’s grand in America now, aside from all that corporate destruction coming our way out of Europe. But the European implosion is a warning, as well as an opportunity. Commodities will continue to be eviscerated for the next one to two years – I wouldn’t be surprised if silver flirts with the teens. But it’s all a flight to safety. It always has been. After that, all I can see is the writing on the wall for the United States.
After Italy’s out of the way, the only thing staving off an American debt run is the ability of Chicago or Albany politicians, whose sole election strategy constitutes promising uneducated urban rats lots of bribes or building ponzi schemes out of public coffers, that this country is good for the money.
We are so fucked.
