FINANCEHYPE: The End of the World As We Know It

OK - gut feeling? Late-at-night (for me), fueled-by-rum-and thirty-odd-years-of-education-in-how-this-"ruling cabal"-rolls, opinion? It's a game. And you ain't playing -- you on the table. You a piece, or a chip, or a pawn... In the immortal words of Jamie Foxx in "Any Given Sunday":

"I'm gonna stay who I am. Steamin' Willie Beamen. With the time I got left, I'll play my way. Get my dollars up. So when you go to waive me, trade me or whatever the fuck y'all do... I'll be worth 10 times what I was worth before I got here."

In the immortal words of Nick Nolte in "North Dallas Forty": "Every time I call it a game, you call it a business -- and every time I call it a business, you call it a game!"

All of American life ( and increasingly, Euro life) is being turned into pro football. The biggest, baddest, smartest dogs will get a go on the field. If you're good, you might hopefully make enough to pay for all the knee-braces and wheelchairs you will need later in life (like age 40). If you ain't good, you meat...

And you'll pay whatever the muhfuggahs in charge decide you should, cos it's their game.

You see it over the years, and you start to see the patterns -- the boom and the bust, the S&L "scandal", the subprime mortgage "scandal"... why does the Secretary of the Treasury always look like a mafia capo? Cos he's a mafia capo!

Stuff you're not supposed to say... People can't deal... American life s'pozed to be like "Schoolhouse Rock" ("I'm Just A Bill" at YouTube)...

Bill Hicks: "You want to know the political views of the average American? Here they are: 'I think the puppet on the left shares my views!' 'I think the puppet on the right shares my views!' 'Hey! There's one guy holding up both puppets!' 'Shut up!'"

Bill Hicks: "What Is The Point To Life?"

JustMe - I think you're doing every thing the best it can be done. You're the American the power structure can't lose. When you and yours hit the streets with AK-47s, the Naval Observatory ain't gonna be so cozy for Dick Cheney.

Mark my words: It will change at the election.
Just like it changed at the 2000 election. All these poor muhfuggahs I see on my way to work will be able to get handouts. Whatever favored industries (telecom, biotech) will go on hiring sprees. Google will rule the world. Suddenly a boom. And we all forget those plowed under in the latest bust. Cos when someone's dead -- it's easy to forget them...

– this is prime blog material. Or hype material – Cacetudo objects to the word blog, rightly. Prime hype material, which is why I posted it ...
