Greetings good citizen,

I’d say Thank (you know who) it’s Friday but that misses the mark by a couple of miles because the nonsense just keeps on coming.

Let’s have a look at today’s headlines, shall we?

Fears Rise That Recovery May Falter in the Spring


Global finance leaders are meeting in Washington to discuss oil prices, unemployment and other issues putting a cloud over the global economic picture.

Okay, not particularly surprising and consistent with the world most of us wake up to each day.

This is what the lede to the business section reads like:

Special Report: Global Trends
A Tarnished Standing for Europe


European problems will be at the forefront of discussions this weekend at the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

Kim Appointment May Spur Changes at the World Bank
BRICS Agitate for a Seat at the Table

Threat of Credit Downgrade Persists for Morgan Stanley


A credit rating downgrade could hurt the bank's huge derivatives business, forcing the group to come up with billions of extra dollars. [?]

No Power, No Boom

India cannot get enough fuel to run power plants, and the problem has contributed significantly to a second year of slowing economic growth in the country.

This more closely resembles a litany of woe than a declaration of prosperity but guess where the Dow is right now? Up more than a hundred, ‘in sync’ with a global rally in stocks!

Now the lying ‘corporate owned media’ claims this is due to ‘earnings’ but we have seen the rather ‘creative’ way Wall Street arrives at it’s ‘earnings’ figures.

Then there’s the ‘basis in reality’ part that no one (credible) is willing to debate in either direction.

This is ‘The Walrus’ biting us on the ass. What Walrus? The one who said, “My words mean exactly what I want them to mean, nothing more and nothing less.”

How fucking sad is it that the ONLY, er, ‘entity’ that KNOWS what you mean is YOU (and even then there is a degree of waffling because speech is a far from perfect medium!)

So, stock markets around the world are rallying and we can only wonder “who is loony enough to be buying stocks in this market?”

And survey says?

The fuckers who make their living off of the markets…

Okay, not enough? How about this bit of speculation from today’s edition of Alternet

The growing minority vote (which leans heavily Democratic), the shift of white college graduates from red to blue and the shrinking white working class (which traditionally votes Republican) are good omens for the left, said Ruy Teixeira, senior fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress. Sean Trende, senior elections analyst for Real Clear Politics, said he largely agreed with Teixeira’s analysis, although he sees room for the GOP to make gains down the road.

Teixeira and Trende told Governing that however these trends play out on the federal level, the effects are likely to be felt in state legislatures and governorships. The 2010 midterm elections, in which Republicans gained 69 seats in Congress and nearly 700 seats in statehouses nationwide, are the latest example of that correlation.

"It could have a huge impact,” Trende said. “The evidence definitely suggests that state politics follow the national trends.” Teixeira concurred, with the caveat that state politics have their own peculiarities (such as the gerrymandering of state legislative districts) that distinguish them from national elections.

“These trends have got to filter down in some ways,” he said. “This will have a big effect.”

How fucking sad is it good citizen that the Democratic Party as we now know it is nothing more than a sock puppet controlled by the minority conservatives?

By their actions shall they be known…well, I know I’m not the only one to notice that the ONLY legislation getting passed through Congress these days is decidedly conservative (and putrid!)

But this is what happens when money takes control of politics.

And I again belabor the obvious when I point out that this should surprise nobody.

Um, is the ‘browning’ of the US the reason it has been ‘abandoned’ by our great white leaders? (The ‘owners of commerce’)

I’ll bet the Native Americans wish they knew this earlier, they could have chased the Europeans out of here with the ‘threat’ of non-white grandchildren!

Sadly, this, in perspective, explains efforts to EXTERMINATE the Native peoples…it seems this planet isn’t big enough for some white people…

Maybe we should figure out a way for them to get off? (This ‘contaminated’ planet)

(And Gegner is white!)

Thanks for letting me inside your head,

Gegner (A proud member of the ‘family of man’)
