Twinkies and the American economy.

It was the phrase "... the fat slob, Twinkie eating, bozos of America don't have enough money to fight their wars any more." that grabbed my attention.  It was so sweet - like those Twinkies I guess - that I couldn't resist eating listening to some more.

It was an interview with Max Keiser on RT and Bill Dod was asking Max about the connection between the collapsing bond market and the Edward Snowdon affair.  This is a transcribed excerpt of Max Keiser talking to Bill Dod of RT (aka Russia Today) TV network.

"It's very telling that the foreign minister of Ecuador said that you're talking about us extraditing Edward Snowdon;  What about bringing back those bankers we asked you to bring back to Ecuador who we caught rigging and terrorising our market.  What about the Icelandic bankers who have been asked by the government of Iceland to be extradited back to Iceland that are being held in the UK.  What about these other instances where banking terrorists are being sheltered in the US and the UK and they are not responding to extradition agreements.  So this is all about financial [legislature(?)] Bill.  Unfortunately the fat slob, Twinkie eating, bozos of America don't have enough money to fight their wars any more so they have to resort to snooping, data gathering and market manipulation."

He goes on to say

"Look at the bond market today Bill;  It's selling off pretty spectacularly all over the world because  confidence in the American hologram of finance is collapsing.  They've flipped the switch.  They see that the emperor has no clothes.  There's no underlying economic activity to support the military occupations and financial occupations that are emanating from the US.  GAME OVER Bill.  It's GAME OVER!"

That sums it up so well that I am now a dedicated fan of Max Keiser.  I always rated him but felt he had a tendency to get over excited and a bit elaborate.  This transcription revealed, for me, the amazing succinctness of his message.  He gets what it might take another person an hour to say said in three minutes.

You can watch the whole interview (4 mins 43 secs) here:

I would say that humanity is at a profound crossroad and it has to choose but that is not enough.  It simply cannot continue with the self-contradictory nonsense of the authoritarian, dictatorial, hierarchical, self-serving, self destructive paradigms that are dished out by ridiculous self serving bullies.  So there is no choice really - Humanity will change.
