Our Bureaucrats at Work

Date: 01 October, 2011

By: Chief

Imaget just cannot be true. Nobody could possibly be this incompetent and still be able to hold down a job. My God — a three year old armed only with a Popsicle stick, instead of ball point pen, could and would do a better job. Oh, wait a minute, I see what the problem is — bureaucrats. Federal government bureaucrats. The absolute epitome of incompetence. Worthless swine. And that is a huge put-down on swine.

There are somethings that even rats won't do

Scientific laboratories have recently started a very interesting and equally entertaining experiment. The scientists have replaced laboratory rats with (you're gonna love this) — bureaucrats. The results are startling, to say the least. It has been observed that:

There can be only two reasons for this monumental change at laboratories. It seems that:

Ha! I love that one. It is also quite true as you shall soon discover.

Financial terrorists

Let's consider our economy or rather what is left of it. Things first really started heading south, as in going to hades, in 2005. By 2009 our country was in a state of economic depression. Hence, in an effort to stem the hemorrhage President G.W. Bush along with his economic henchmen got legislation through Congress to either give or loan billions of our dollars to:

There was also a lot of talk in the papers, the net and on the boob tube about how those responsible for this cataclysmic fall from economic grace should be in prison for the rest of their natural or unnatural lives.

As we all know only too well:

Now, along comes B.O. and his boys all saying basically the same thing G.W. and his boys already said. And the results showed it — zero change to our economic catastrophe. In other words, just like under G.W.:

You had better believe the financial boys on Wall Street will do, just as they have done, whatever it takes to make themselves money. They simply don't care about anything or anybody else. Just themselves and their checkbook. Quoting Investment Watch:

"Even after the markets melted down, even after Wall Street bonus scandals and bailout disgraces, Wall Street has hardly been humbled. It is still spending a fortune on PR and political gun slinging with 25 lobbyists shadowing every member of Congress to scuttle real reform.

Its arrogance is evident in an email the Financial Times reported was "pinging around" trading desks. It reads in part:

" 'We are Wall Street: It's our job to make money. Whether it's a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn't matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you're only going to hurt yourselves. What's going to happen when we can't find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We're going to take yours … We aren't dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive'."

And if that isn't enough to cause you to lose your lunch — here is one more (quoting Investment Watch):

"Convicted financial criminal Sam Antar who appears in [the] film Plunder is contemptuous of how government tends to proceed in these cases, in part because they don't seem to understand how calculated these crimes and their cover-ups are. 'Our laws--innocent until proven guilty, the codes of ethics that journalists like you abide by limit your behavior and give the white-collar criminal freedom to commit their crimes, and also to cover up their crimes', he said.

" 'We have no respect for the laws. We consider your codes of ethics, and your laws, weaknesses to be exploited in the execution of our crimes. So the prosecutors, hopefully most prosecutors, are honest if they're playing by the set of the rules; they're hampered by the illegal constraints. The white-collar criminal has no legal constraints. You subpoena documents, we destroy documents; you subpoena witnesses, we lie. So you are at a disadvantage when it comes to the white-collared criminal. In effect, we're economic predators. We're serial economic predators; we impose a collective harm on society, time is always on our side, not on, not on the side of justice, unfortunately'."

Lovely isn't it? And our bureaucrats shall do nothing to upset that particular applecart. There is simply too much money to pass up. Dirt bags.


Hence, Wall Street is not just at the heart of our current economic disaster. Oh no. To be sure — Wall Street is the heart and soul of this economic dysfunction called an economic depression. Regrettably, not much is going to change until "The Street" and all those predators which call it home are vaporized by a nuclear knockout punch. Hopefully it shall happen soon — but it shall not happen on B.O.'s watch. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) would never allow it. There is way too much old money at stake.

As long as the two major political parties remain in power — completely incompetent bureaucrats shall remain firmly in place — serving those who pay their masters and leaving We the People in the dark. Without doubt, they are mangy, rabid curs.

It is high time for We the People to defecate on "The Street" and all those who call it home.
