Send in the Clowns

My business partner and I were discussing this today ... maybe it is time to send in the clowns. I can't see how they can create anymore of mess than we are in right now.

Can you imagine having the same clowns who got us into this mess try to get us out of it!!! It's not going to happen.

  1. Insanity - Continuing to do the same things while expecting different results.

    These are a few words with a very strong message. The self-righteous fools need to listen. It's not the wind they are hearing, it's a train.

    1. Shelton,

      Thank you for your feedback and your comment.

      I think that light at the end of the tunnel is indeed a train.


  2. Excellent comment.
    Just remember that Obama Inc has been bought and paid for by BIG Money. Don't think that that massively expensive primary campaign and thence the presidential campaign was run on mum and dad donations. They never are. Now that the Dems and Obama Inc have taken the money, they now have to do what his moneyed mates want and if you don't like it tough luck. In the US you get the best politicians that campaign money can buy and that has to be repaid later in "Government" actions favourable to those who contributed the most to the campaigns. That's what all those Washington lobbyists are there for.

    What the world is seeing, not just the US, are "political solutions" to economic problems and leaders(with scant understanding of even basic economics) pretending to the largely unthinking masses that there are really easy painless solutions to complex problems. To hell with the consequences - let us just do what is needed to stay in power and keep our key campaign contributors happy at the same time.

    The end result of the clowns running this show will be massive and damaging inflation the likes of which the world has not seen for over 50 years. Once again, the savers will be punished with their wealth destroyed by incredible inflationary actions by politicians and influential businessmen who primarily only have their own interests in mind. No amount of damaging inflation down the track, caused by reckless government debt creation and the endless pinting of dollars, will hurt the politicians' finances. They will just vote themselves inflation adjusted salary increases as they have always done.

    1. Sean,

      Thank you for taking so much time to make a very valuable comment on this blog.

      We appreciate your insight.

      All the best,

  3. We are the employers of these clowns, and we can't fire any of them. we're stuck. Just look at what c.schumer side yesterday. "Everyones talking about those little bits of pork, AMERICA DOESN'T CARE". Hello chuck, we do care how much of this funding down the road is going to impacked our children and gradchildren. Of course your part of the cronyism of the past thats more interested in winning, than lasting results. history doesn't lie.

    1. David,

      I agree. America does care. America has always cared unfortunately the politicians don't seem to understand.

      Thanks for your valuable input to this blog.


  4. Following up on an ad elsewhere about ClubINO, I surfed here.

    Guys, what a concept! CounterTrade the Fed (I know, you said "Politicians," but, who pulls Obama's heavy anchor weights?)

    But, in this part of you statement - "Can you imagine having the same clowns who got us into this mess try to get us out of it!!! It’s not going to happen."

    - you show the supreme ignorance induced to the American Sheeple People by the Banker-owned Media. Yes, Malcolm, Exactly the Same People who got us into this are right where they've always been and You & I have not a shred of influence to change that!

    I.e., No Arms to protect ourselves;

    No We the People" anymore;

    No Control over our kids' education;

    No Control over our Right of Religious Practice, practice, or moral code of Ethic;

    No Say in Who Taxes us into oblivion;

    No Place to Practice individual trade skills;

    No Right to Peer-governed Court procedure; and,

    In General, Not a Stinking Thing to Call Ours, any longer.

    If I faintly recall from my 50's social studies classes, we were informed that our personal wealth is an inalienable right, as is our freedom to the pursuit of personal

    - Religion (Practice of Biblical, Not Eastern Pagan Rites)

    - Wealth Acquisition (Not pursuit by the government for our wealth)

    - Right to Life, and protection thereof (Not unborn people murder)

    - Right to Education (Not force-feeding of politically-correct Crap)

    Al Gore-gutz "I invented the Internet" statement reveals more than he likely intended about his elitist objectives to shoehorn 95% of earth's population into mass graves. If that was not revealing enough, his group's books and warped "Truth" media publications went way over the top to detail mass annihilation of people, because we pollute his(their) Earth more than they like us too!

    Really, fellow Sheeple, if the Boston Tea Party attitude helped then, are we incapable of the same now? (They didn't even have the Internet!)

    Your close, from above, says something, but will we actually see anything Different? . . . .

    1. Carmstrong:
      I couldn't have said it better myself.
      The People keep saying if you don't like them , vote them out of office.
      Just how do you do that?
      My what a mess we have now.
      I really think they can destroy us in their first 100 Days.
      Look out Folks, it's going to get real bumpy.
      Thanks for all your comments

  5. "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

    That's right 1802

  7. "Madison, agreeing with the journal of the convention,
    records that the grant of power to emit bills of credit
    was refused by a majority of more than four to one.
    The evidence is perfect; no power to emit paper money
    was granted to the legislature of the United States."

    and silver coin a tender in payment of debts, coin money..."

  8. Did US just vote for the wrong president? We will never know. I suspect the other beaten cantidate would have done the same thing with just a different version of the TARP/Stimulus/rescue/whatever they wanna call it (they did change the plans name again). I'm a believer that they should let the market heal itself and not try to put band-aids on deep wounds. What they are doing will only prolong the world's suffering. Let the best of them survive and let the weak/faulty firms/companies go down. When this thing turns around, new organizations and firms will arise to challenge the process. Nothing last forever anyway. Just my opinion.

  9. I don't know anything about politic ot economic, but I do think that you guys should give them a chance, you voted them in, now you stuck with them.

    1. Cyril,

      The administration has for years. Like most Americans we want them to succeed unfortunately the odds are just not in their favor.

      Thank you for your input.


  10. Tiny Tim CAN'T say or do the right thing cause if he did then all the big banks would be declared insolvent and his banking buds on Wall Street would be out of jobs!

  11. You go Adam! At least your take on clowns gave me quite a laugh!
    Believe it or not, recently while socializing at my local
    watering hole, I have made a similar statement. Instead of clowns,
    I bet that the aggregate of the regulars, which are mostly made up
    of successful business persons, could easily run this country better
    than what we have now. I am totally serious....
    I will not use any fowl or untasteful language as to describe the
    way I feel about our countries predicament. (Use your imagination.)
    All I can say is it is totally "unbelieveable"!!!
    Can we fire them now????
    Thanks for letting me vent...

  12. Jefferson and Madison gave us a country based on sound money.
    Over time we let the bankers steal it.
    Pharasees 01, Jesus 00.
    Good luck to us.

    1. Everyone needs to be made aware of the fact of our monetary system having been hijacked by the banking elite. Jefferson and Madison gave us sound money and over time we allowed the banking special interests to corrupt congress and install the credit based fiat system we are all now suffering under.

  13. Amazing! Just yesterday I told a friend that Washington was just two clowns short of a complete three ring circus and here we have'em!

  14. After seeing what is happening regarding this so called stimulus package and explanations and comments made by Barrack Obama and Tim Geithner,I wonder Who's in Charge.
    This bunch who now run the White House and are trying to make attempts at organization and establishing cabinet order for leadership, it is becoming more apparent all the time that this is one scary group of people , with little or no experience at running anything, let alone our overall precarious economic condition.
    They sure have the country in an uproar that isn't improving.
    Thank You
