- Re: Stuck On Stupid

The Analogy here is pulled from the comments of the last post. Think of the markets like Steve Martin in the drunk test above. Every time he does what the cop says, the cop comes up with some other ridiculous thing he must do to 'prove' he isn't really drunk (or in the markets case... broken). Always a new rule, a new mandate, and some new ridiculous politically appropriate goal that is unconnected from reality.

The only difference is that eventually the markets can't do everything. Maybe they stop tap dancing for a minute or drop an orange. When they do, the government proclaims it 'broken' and says that it's how we got all these problems in the first place.

And their answer to that, mysteriously enough, is always less liberty for the masses, and more power for them. Funny how that works.

Don't worry chess, I'm sure they have a 'solution' to this travesty. Although I can't imagine what it's going to be.

(And I actually prefer "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid"... I think it was at least as good as "The Jerk")

House Members: Holder and Clinton Considering Release of ‘Blind Sheikh’
The Jewish Press ^ | September 20, 2012 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus

In a strongly worded letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton, eight members of congress have demanded that a request to release Omar Abdel-Rahman from federal prison be rejected. Abdel-Rahman, known as the “blind sheikh,” inspired the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and is serving a life sentence for his role in a plot to conduct assassinations and destroy bridges, tunnels and other landmarks in New York City.

It is believed that the unrest blanketing much of the Middle East last week was inspired at least in part by the demands that the Blind Sheikh be released, and that any consideration of such a request was inspired by an effort to quell the widespread anti-American fury.

The letter sent by Representative Pete King (R-NY), Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security and seven other key members of congressional leadership warned of the consequences of appeasing terrorism through such a blatant act of submission:

Please do this today.... Then let Mitt run with it from a pos prez point of view. Then lets have 5 minutes on the 93 bombing and what did Bubba do except get blowjobs. Blind Shiek should be Dead Shiek...

For several years I have wondered how on an earth in a country that put a man on the moon that a man who blew up so quickly in a presidential primary then could become one of their standard bearers and talking head like Howard Dean. Jesus.
