Speaking Truth to Cower

Tipping point?

This is a nuke. Even coming from FOX, it's a nuke.

And the Fed bought a trillion dollars worth of bonds today.

With what? A keystroke.

Zimbabwe, here we come. Or is that too racist?

There is going to be a revolution. Absolutely a revolution and it's going to explode this year.

Breaking news folks!!!!!!

Dodd say's he will return AIG contributions, which will then make King 0 the #1 receiver of bribes from AIG.

At the risk of repeating myself, I shall repeat myself:

The feigned outrage over “bonuses” to AIG employees is like a three card monte game. The real purpose is distract the spectators while the card players confederates pick their pockets. AIG was a conduit for over $170 billion to its counter-parties like Goldman Sachs. The “bonuses” were 1/10th of 1% of that amount, and what is worse, 1/100th of 1% of the $1.5 trillion that Congress has appropriated since Jan 20. The spectators are the taxpayers. The three card monte players are the politicians.

If you don't know who the mark is, you are the mark.

Awesome news coverage once again by Fox. I love Smith's delivery.

I am going to revisit the whole Dylan lexicon, become a Go master and switch to gin for the next four years.

You know I was just thinking about the Dylan bit. Watch this site in the next couple of days for "The Illustrated Desolation Row."

I tell ya, Gerald, I so LOVED Shep's delivery!

But I'm worried. How much do you want to bet Obama and a few of the Congress-pigs (including the biggest pig of them all, Barney Frank) have secretly asked the IRS to sic their accountant squads on to him and every single individual who dares to confront them with the truth?

Just watch.

Mr. Shep is a grandstander par excellence. Remember his outrageously ill-informed reporting re Katrina? No, this is surely pot calling kettle black. But, in spite of that, a stopped clock tells the correct time twice a day. This is one of those instances. A necessary response, forcefully expressed. Kudos to Shep.

Is it true that Barney Frank is Elmer Fudd's bastard son?

I can hear "dad" now:

"I shoulda taken him to more Wed Sox games! I shoulda taken him Wabbit hunting! Then he woudda liked girls!"

I can just imaging Shep warning us that "it's a cookbook!" but then remember I'm not watching a movie. I wish I was.
