Hedge Fund ‘Billionaire’ threw himself off a 23 story building in Manhattan because of financial problems. Yes, this is the price people pay when they play money games with no morals. They are filled with despair when the game is screwed up and often, commit crimes or commit suicide. The mentality that makes these people leads to their demise because they often have to cheat to get super rich or at least, do ugly things to innocent bystanders.
Japan’s Nikkei continues to self-destruct as China buys US corporations left and right while the US Wall Street con artists and gangstas revive the dreaded Derivatives Beast playing wild Ponzi gambling games using no capital base and waiting for the Fed to bail them all out again and again and again. Time to snarl and snap about all this! And we seem helpless to stop them. Instead, we are debating sex, abortion, guns and other matters such as the need for FEMA. Oh, by the way, a tornado passed to the north of my home last night. We need FEMA functional. Continue reading
Both gold and the entirely fake bitcoins have seen big drops this week.

We should dump them into the sea! Continue reading
The US is in trouble due to wild military spending on crazy global adventures while non-socialized medical care causing our medical system to cost more per capita than any of the other first world nations.

We now have budget cutting that is unfair and destructive while at the same time, the rich can weasel out of many taxes while at the same time reaping bigger and bigger rewards for being the top dogs. So the rich get richer and the poor are tossed out. Continue reading
Yet another Madoff is going to prison. The Ponzi Brothers have continued to be dismayed at the repercussions of their crimes because, quite frankly, they thought they were being honest even though they lied, hid things and in general, ran their investment house like a crack house.
