    On a total side note, I know that some of y’all are stuck, ostrich in the sand, in beliefs that weren’t even correct in the gold standard days (like higher gov’t deficits lead to worse economy, and that people can save without gov’t deficits (which they can’t)), but that’s ok.

    Buried in all that “austrian school” emotional (but rarely rational) economic mumbo jumbo are some really good points: like the strangling effect on small biz (which is the real driver of growth) of regulations and the tendency of government to mismanage their funds…

    TWICE. Today, the FBI came to my house, two agents in a car, to interview me… in 2009 the SEC did the same thing…

    Over me being long about 200-250,000 shares of Nova Chemical in February 2009. Nova got bought out for $6/share on feb 23, 2009, it was trading at somewhere roughtly around 1.50 before that.

    We’re talking less than a million bucks of profit (if memory serves me on how many shares I was long), and TWICE the government investigates. Some penny ante farm boy from the middle of nowhere, over making not even a million bucks on some trade that I have LITEARLLY dozens of emails between me, my old biz partner, and my broker discussing the pros and cons of. ITS NOT LIKE THE FEDS DON’T ALREADY HAVE ACCESS TO MY STUPID EMAILS FROM MY STUPID GMAIL ACCOUNT, and its NOT LIKE THEY DON’T ALREADY KNOW THIS IS ME POSTING THIS. For gods sake I’m sure they have a recording of ALL OF MY PHONE CONVOS.

    But TWICE we’ve spent money to investigate me for making a measly million bucks. Maybe we can get the NSA and the CIA involved in this too, I mean, HOLY CRAP, clearly, farm boys from FUCKING IOWA, are getting all the insider information, I mean, i’m CLEARLY one of the insndiers on wall street, what with me posting maybe 40 blogs at one site and knowing, like, 8 people that work on wall street TOTAL.

    But lets investigate that TWICE, once NEARLY THREE YEARS after it happened…

    But you guys can’t find Bernie Madoff, or catch the fact that the S&P downgrade was probably insider traded to the tune of $100B of profits in August, or that this action by the central banks was probably traded to the tune of at least 10B of profits? by people who knew?

    And congress can blatantly legally insider trade? And tell their cousins and long dead uncle chuck?

    TWICE, for some farm boy from nowhere. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, people, YOU MIGHT AS WELL SEARCH MY HOUSE FOR HEROIN AND COCAINE, I’VE NEVER SEEN EITHER IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

      say give or take 100k sahres. I can’t even remember.

      “what date did you first buy ncx?”

      “well technically it was nova chemical, and hell if I know, but the day it first broke 2 bucks”

      “why were you interested in that stock?”

      “well I don’t konw, slick, maybe because THEY HAD THE SINGLE BEST PRODUCTION ASSET INT HE WORLD FOR THE PRIMARY COMPONENT IN THE SINGLE MOST WIDELY USED PLASTIC ON EARTH, and I just didn’t think they were going to throw in the towel over a silly little $250 mil bank note coming due?”

      WTF?

      Scrwe it, I’m going ot a bar and i’m going to sit there and talk to about 50 people, with fraudelent copycat Louis Vuitton purses who can’t even speak proper english, woh hate me, and whose entire lives my taxes pay for.

      (now technically, taht isn’t true, our taxes don’t pay for crap, they simply represent destruction of currency, but I’m going all self righteous, jakie style, one last time, with feeling).

      That is all.

        thats about all I’ve got. I’ve paid millions and millions of dollars in taxes in the last X years, and I’m super, super happy EVERY SINGLE TIME someone flips me off when i’m driving in my ferrari or stands around it in packs when I try to have a bite to eat with my lady at the local pub so I have to shout at them when i leave said pub… WHEN I KNOW DAMN WELL THEY ARE ALL LIVING OFF THEP UBLIC PURSE.

        AND I’M SUPER SUPER HAPPY TO BEI NVESTIGATED TWICE AS THOUGH I ACTUALLY EVEN 1% MATTER ENOUGH TO GET INSIDER INFORMATION ON WALL STREET. I MEAN, CLEARLY ITS CHECKLIST THATS GETTING ALL THE GOOD SCOOPS AND NOT LLOYD BLANKFEIN OR JAMIE DIMON OR YE MERRY BIGSHOT HEDGIE.

        I mean, I AM SO DAMN GRATEFUL, to be an insider. ITS FUCKING AWESOME. I remember, very clearly, on august 3rd, liquidating all of my accountsa nd going BALLS IN FRONT MONTH PUTS ON THE MARKET ahead of the S&P downgrade, SOMETHING I ONLY KNEW HOW TO DO BECAUSE I’M CLEARLY THE no I mean THE #1 insider on all of wall street.

        I OWN A BUNCH OF FARMLAND IN BUM FUCK EGYPT, THAT IS CLEARLY WHAT GETS YOU AT THE TOP OF WALL STREETS INSIDER LIST.

        I am the shit, you know when people yell about how “the man” is holding them down, that is clearly me. I’m clearly a Rothschild, cornerstone of the centuries old international banking conspiracy.

        Either that or I’m SOME FUCKING INVENTOR FROM FUCKING IOWA WHO DOESN’T KNOW A FUCKING SOUL ON WALL STREET who actually matters.

        BUT WHAT THE FUCK! WE STILL HAVE AT LEAST 2 OR 3 GOVERNMENT AGENCIES LEFT TO INVESTIGATE ME, LETS GET THEIR ASSES OVER HERE TOMORROW, JUST HOPE THEY CALL AHEAD OF TIME SO I CAN GET PROPERLY PISSED BEFOREHAND.

        I can’t even believe we are wasting money on this stuff.

      Let’s call a few more agencies. You’ve barely touched the alphabet.

      Then make a few phone calls to friends, asking if they have any good yellow cake recipes you could try when your cousin visits from Iran.
