The Watering Hole: Tuesday June 12, 2012 – Duck and Pray or Go Vote! Your decision.

Bank Run

The perfect economic storm may be rocking the boat big time, come three weeks. That’s how long IMF boss Christine Lagarde reckons Europe has left to solve their problems. I wish everybody the best of luck with Angela Merkel being the key person in the situation. That’s one obstinate woman if there ever was one.

Well, then there are younger economic powerhouses than Europe, which could pick up the slack. India?Β Errr no. Brazil? So sorry, no help. China? Hmmmm.

Don’t expect the economy to be any help in November when it comes to President Obama running for a second term. Mitt Romney’s position gets stronger by default. Bringing out the Democratic vote, even if you are understandably less than enthusiastic must be top priority this year.Β If Mitt Romney is elected, the last remnants of what’s left of the middle class will go down in flames. Their already dismal funds will be transferred to the top 1%.

The 1% will then learn a little later, that their money is just printed on paper after all and there is no one left they can milk for more. Then the top 0.1% will go after the others, but that won’t be of any help to any of you.

Is it that bad? Yes it is.

  1. It’s time to begin arranging the demise of Capitalism in its current form, and in the process inser the highest principles of Marxism into a new and revised global system of government. No more basing success upon accumulation of monetary wealth! No more greed — make it a capital crime, at least. No more war, ever, of any kind or sort, for any reason. Make warmongering a crime punishable by lifelong incarceration (at least).

    Or, perhaps better yet, simply allow the current human dilemma to continuously replicate itself and allow extinction to run its course, thereby improving the quality of life for all living things remaining in the known universe.

    Can’t tell if I got up on the right side or the wrong side of the bed this morning, but I did have a nice four mile walk!

  2. And meanwhile in Massachusetts…. watch your mouth

    I wonder if they wrote down what words were not allowed to be uttered in public? Who got to decide? What about gestures? Did they use a dictionary to also eliminate popular synonyms?

    • Seems to me that the Republicans are suffering from the same terrorist tactics that they have been imposing on the Democrats for quite a few years. Threaten a primary challenger if you don’t vote the way that we want you to vote. Only in this case, Grover Norquist is the terrorist.

      Ah, money in the system, sounds like a real winner, no?

  3. So, equal time for stupid Protestant bigots as well. Apparently, Bryan Fischer has been surveying people who practice bestiality. Anyone know a good study on sheep-fuckers?

    • If it’s consensual, is it ok?

      Reminds me of an old story set in a courtroom in Montana. A young shepherd fellow was on trial for bestiality, accused of having sex with a sheep. During cross examination, the accused went into full detail concerning the event, ostensibly to show that the sheep was not assaulted, that it went along willingly. The final question was:

      “And after you were finished, did the sheep have any reaction?”

      “Yep, she shore did.”

      “Can you describe it?”

      “Well, see, she looked at me direct, face to face, and stared at me for the longest time with them purdy brown eyes, made no effort at all to run off or nothin’ like that. Then she done licked me all over my face.”

      One of the old ranchers on the jury nudged the old rancher sitting next to him and said, in hushed voice, “Yep, they’ll do that sometimes.”

  4. Today is the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Loving v. Virginia, most aptly named court case ever.

    • That is just wrong and I have made the claim that I’ll eat anything with bacon on it. Perhaps they are hoping for pregnant women with strange crvings will be their market?

    • Beautiful butterflies..

      oops. I may have written that rather loudly causing Pachy’s heart to flutter out of his dragonfly chest!

    • Perfect musical choice with F&tM!
      Great montage.
      Congratulations Kings! That has to be one wonderful/surreal feeling!

  5. From Common Dreams

    Nobel Prize-Winner Elinor Ostrom Dies at 78
    Ostrom’s work highlighted the power of “the commons”

    Nobel-winning work “showed that ordinary people are capable of creating rules and institutions that allow for the sustainable and equitable management of shared resources. Her work countered the conventional wisdom that only private ownership or top-down regulation could prevent a ‘tragedy of the commons,’ in which users would inevitably destroy the resources that they held in common.”

  6. Louie Gohmert further cements his title as, arguably, the nastiest male member of the House. (I’m looking at you, Ginny Foxx!). Just for the record; I had a few seizures after a head injury some years ago. I didn’t collapse or froth at the mouth, I just entered a semi-conscious state that caused erratic behavior I can’t recall to this day. The second that I read the Bryson story and realized that he hadn’t been arrested for DUI I said; “he had a seizure”.
