Should American Troops Open Hedge Funds?

Given the glorious military victories of the various Hedge Funds to prove that they won the cold war, would it not be in the best interests of the troops on the ground, to be able to open Hedge Funds so that they can trade for Fire Missions?

I mean one never knows when one will want to have the safety and security of a signed contract for Fire Missions, Air Support, Medivacs....

And only the Free Trade In The Free Market can Lead The Way!

Brief Happy Thot

Mentioned to one of my co-workers that I am looking around for something after this contract, and it is so nice to see that there are folks who dislike the prospects of losing their Favorite Loonie....

Also got a call from a head hunter...

So who knows...

All of which is to say, yes, you too could be the cool person who finds the drieux a gig, so that I can continue to do my Patriotic Duty of Fighting Terrorism with Power Shopping, Just Like The Bible Demands!!!

Radical Extremists Economists Threatens The Guacamole...

The inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th president of the United States of America offers the possibility of the first episode of normal politics and policy-making since the Radical Republicans puzzled over how to use the North's victory in the Civil War to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.
[ cf The Possibility of the First Normal Policy-Making and Politics since... ]
Given that the paragraphs before that read like the evolutionary history of WingNuttery From the American Civil War to the Most Evolved Forms of WingNuttery, one really has to wonder:
What makes the new Kult Of Personality not the New WingNuttery?
and one is forced to face the WHOLE HORROR!!!!

Oh MIEN GOTT IM HIMMEL!!!!

He does not believe that 911 changed everything, and that the Blessings come only from the War President, and the arguments from Divine Comedy, and not from the Secularism of retreating back into paleo-factualism!!!

But which did they mean to up hold....

What I find really FUNNY amongst the NeoConClownCarCrew is that they want to have this majikal "hollow government", where the purpose of government is to spend the tax payer dollars on the only acceptable thing, the DOD, which is itself, a hollow institution, about passing out the tax payer dollars to no-bid contractors, so that after the troops have blead getting into a nation, the contractors will be able to make a profit because of the Cost Plus no bid contracts, while alienating the indigenous population and driving them into armed uprising, that the neoCons would understand, if their patriotic rhetoric were to allow them to actually conceive of a personal obligation that was not merely the manifestation of the financialization of the market.

But of course those freaking draft dodgers never want to work it through as to HOW they justify their Mythos about the American Armed Forces, and the reality that they actually support!!!

The system would make sense IF they were willing to finally make their ultimate leap of faith into the Happy Land of Milton Friedmanisms, and admit that the purpose of the DOD/InternalSecurityApparat, is to crush any opposition that can arise to privatization, and to do this by strictly privatized means....

But that would mean admitting that the problem with the VA, is that it had been intended to deal with the great body of Returning GI's from "the great war", since clearly the 'greatest generation' deserved the due regards, { for slow readers, recall that the first RIOT on the mall was a Veteran's Riot, from the Bonus Marches, when DougOutDoug charged Tanks and Cavalry into the vets to remind them of their place... } but for the VA to exist, it would mean accepting that there exists some non-financializable values, that are not merely the Imaginary Foote of the Market Knee Jerking about Profits...

OH MY GOODNESS!!!

Why this way would mean that there are some sort of limits to privatization....

OH WHAT EVER WILL WE DO!!!

Why that would mean that there was some reason to have a Federal Government - and it might be related to the process of national security, in some way that was NOT merely about transferring the tax payer's dollars to the Homeland Security Investor Bubble!!!

OH ME! OH MY!!! What Ever Will We DO!!!

OH NO!!! Now governance would be about, uh, governing!!! And not merely about ABUSING THE TROOPS as an excuse for transferring the tax dollars from the whiners to the Homeland Security Investment Bubble...

Army Mutiney Underway Against War President!!!

A military judge adjourned the Guantanamo Bay war crimes court just before President Barack Obama was sworn in on Tuesday, leaving open the possibility that the hearings might not resume.

The judge, Army Col. Patrick Parrish, dismissed the court until Wednesday "unless otherwise ordered," a nod to the possibility that the Obama administration might suspend the military trials as it wrestles with how to proceed with its plan to close the prison that now holds about 245 men on suspicion of links to terrorism, al-Qaida and the Taliban.

[ cf Gitmo court adjourned for a day, or forever ]
AN ARMY RADICAL JUDICIAL ACTIVIST!!!!

Stabbing our troops in the BACK!!!

and clearly before the civilian president was inaugurated!!!

How WILL the Homeland Security Investment Bubble be able to blossom with this sort of ARMED UPRISING by god hating america bashing radical left wing extremists dope smoking anti-war anti-military Hippies!!!

Obamanites Seek Destruction Of White Christian America!!!

Ailing Chrysler yesterday agreed to give Fiat a 35 percent stake in the company in return for access to the Italian automaker's line of small cars and international sales network.

The alliance of the two companies provides no cash to Chrysler, but the company's chief executive Robert L. Nardelli told stakeholders in a letter that he hoped the deal would bolster the automaker's case for additional federal loans by strengthing its offerings. The nonbinding agreement is subject to approval by the Treasury and Chrysler said it hoped it would be complete by April.

[ cf Chrysler Signs Deal That Gives Fiat a 35 Percent Stake ]
It is as if the Italians had marched up the boot of America and CRUSHED our Liberty and were forcing us to adopt their godless heathen Kultur!!!

I mean what Next on The Godless Obamanite Death March Of Doom!!! Sell off other Automakers to the Germans and Japanese...

Day One America Victimized By The Rich White Elitist Obama...

and the DOW slid by 4%.

Hum.... which is worse, a simple tax on mere income in the 28% range for moderately POOR people who have functionally nothing in the Market, or a 4% slide of the DOW below 8000, on it's way to 2000....

All Because the Godless Unbelievers were not willing to support Total Victory in Iranq as a part of the Total Victory of the Homeland Security Investment Bubble as the Bible Biblically Mandates...

{ anyone have a better explanation for the ups and downs of late? }

Revisting Dumping the 22nd Ammendment.

Hey kids, maybe now is time to confess that the SKANK of stopping FDR at all costs, even IF he is dead, was probably the start of the drift to the stoopid!!!

So what has america really gained by keeping the 22nd ammendment?

Wouldn't americans have fealt better if Dubya had run against Clinton in 2000?

Wouldn't americans have fealt better if Dubya had run against Obama in 2008

Wouldn't americans have fealt better if Reagan had run against what was that guy's name... You know, the guy who lost to Bush Sr....

Wouldn't Americans have fealt that much safer if Ike had run in 1960 rather than Tricky dick....

So what have we really gained in all of these years by trying to prevent FDR...

Why the GOP ran Obama...

Today is an historic day. The inauguration of a new President has become one of our most recognizable national ceremonies - a moment that binds the American republic together in observance of the peaceful transition of power from one Administration to the next.

This inauguration also marks a new beginning for the Republican Party.

I think most Americans are ready for solutions that work -- not taxpayer-funded bailouts and pork-barrel spending.

President Barack Obama's election symbolizes that hunger for change, and I look forward to working with him when he extends his hand across the aisle.

But there's no escaping the fact that more voters agree with you and me - not Democrats - on key issues like how we get our economy moving again.

...
We'll promote freedom, security, and a smaller, more accountable government. And we'll protect secret ballots for workers, keep talk radio free from government regulation, and unlock more American energy to reduce our dependence on foreign dictators.
...

House Republican Leader John Boehner

Wow... the NRCC is now also the Smokingest BlingBlining Bling Blingers...

I feel soooo proud that we must protect the secret ballots for workers.... because, if they had to...

HUH? you mean there are parts of the nation where folks have to register with the department of homeland security to vote... and have to havea Dibold Monitoring System in place to make sure that their vote went to the Real Republican Obama Candidate of their choice....

And of course Talk Radio... because literacy is dead... and folks need to be able to chant DITTO to the Real Republican Obama of their choice....

And Ferrign Dictators... ARE THEY THAT HIGH!!!

Do They Really Think that americans are totally doped out???

But thank GOD the GOP ran the Real Republican Obama and didn't let those godless liberal democrats run him...

you knew it was coming, be honest....

In the Middle of a Homeland Security Investment Bubble:
A new application has been launched for the iPod touch to help gun users line up a clean shot at their target.

The BulletFlight app, which costs £6.99 to download from the iTunes store, has been developed by Runaway App to turn the iPod touch into a ballistics computer which the company says can provide “quick solutions in the field”.
