The Shock of All Time

The FerGaza Strip is full of check cashing and payday loan joints.

Next thing you know, they’re going to tell us that it’s full of nail salons and weave shops.

My 66th axiomJust as most people get the government they deserve most of the time (See #6), most people get the interest rates they deserve most of the time.  Meaning rent-to-own joints and payday loan joints aren’t ripping people off or being usurious.

Write him a snail mail telling him that you canceled your Chase Bank (credit card/bank account/whatever) because of his immigration treason.  Even if you don’t and never had any business with Chase Bank, in which case you should probably not include your name on either the letter or the return address on the envelope.  If you do, this would be a good opportunity to move your business to another bank.  I know two people with Chase credit cards who I’ve already talked to this evening who have told me they’re going to find other banks to transfer their cards’ balances as soon as they can, because of this.

I have my snail mail ready to go tomorrow into the mailbox, and no, I’ve never had any personal business with Chase Bank.

Let’s spook the hell out of ole B.J.





Eyes of the Blind

St. Louis Fed no longer keeping track of BOGUMBNS, aka M0.

Because, when TPTB are trying to inflate the currency into a Zimbabwe-level joke, just to keep the DJIA high, best to pull the wool over people’s eyes.

And also…you should probably really make room in your pockets for those trillion dollar coins.

Don’t laugh, American.

It has happened here.

Also, far from being discriminatory, it would have been discriminatory, in fact, almost a hate crime, for this bank not to offer these Muslim/Sharia accounts.

Jeb Hensarling

He must be paying attention to all the snarky blogmeisters out there who have been wishing for more populism out of the Republican Party.





People That Caused the Problem

15 07 2013

Washington, D.C.

About the most liberal Republican and about the most liberal Democrat in the Senate, John McCain and Elizabeth “Dime Store Indian” Warren, want to re-impose Glass-Steagall (good).  Strangely, people associated with a left-wing President are opposed:

The fact that Geithner and Summers don’t support a re-imposition of the Glass-Steagall style regime is no surprise. Lloyd Green writes in The Daily Beast, reviewing Neil Barofsky’s 2012 book Bailout, that “that Geithner ‘made the preservation of the largest banks, no matter the consequences, a top priority of the U.S. government,” blaming “perversion of the U.S. criminal justice system,’ for the hands-off approach toward prosecution of financial crimes under Obama. Barofsky, I should note, is a former federal prosecutor, a Democrat, and a contributor to the Obama 2008 campaign.”

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is no friend of Glass-Steagall-type legislation either and has already dismissed the idea in congressional testimony.

Meanwhile, Sam Francis saw it coming.





Quantitative Easing

Season 4, Episode 16, “Ward’s Millions.”  At about the point of this screenshot, Ward is asking June about an $8.69 check stub without a requisite returned canceled check from the bank.  (Remember when banks actually did that?)  She responded that she couldn’t get the checkbook to balance, so she wrote herself a check for $8.69 then tore it up.  Ward responds:  “June, they could use you in Washington.”

Immediately after this, Ward tells The Beaver that you just can’t keep on writing checks for money you don’t have.  Because…he’s Ward Cleaver, not Ben Bernanke.
