Sunday

(Zerohedge:  My favorite idolaters.)

Yesterday, I hiked five miles to my favorite restaurant.  I ate two pieces of pumpkin pie.  I washed them down with a can of Dr. Pepper.  Delicious.

I returned to my Soviet-style concrete tenement later that afternoon.  The Dragon Lady made Korean beef and egg rolls for dinner.  The egg rolls were smothered in chili sauce.  The meal was outstanding.

I watched several episodes of Supernatural.  I steal the show from this website.  The characters make me laugh. Sam, Dean, and Bobby are rural Americans.  I'm a rural American.  I like them a lot.

My wife and youngest son Bruce went for perms.  They left the apartment at 7 p.m.  They returned at 10 p.m. with ridiculous poodle hair.

I paid homage to the Christ God.  I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees.  I refuse to go through life like some forsaken atheist.  No thank you.

I fell asleep at 11 p.m.  I didn't dream.  I woke up at 7 a.m. I checked out my favorite website while drinking coffee.

The idolaters at Zerohedge are waiting for America to fall off the fiscal cliff.  The notion gives them great pleasure. I don't know why.

They worship at the feet of the golden calf.  However, the fiscal cliff is a deflationary event.  So precious metal will lose much of its value.  Perhaps one of them would be kind enough to explain their glee.

My prediction?  The status quo will win the day.  Wall Street and London are the real global power-players.  The politicians simply do what they're told.  

It's Sunday.  I try to keep the Sabbath holy just for the sake of my health.  We all need time to relax.

Anyway, talk to you later.  God bless.

  1. The cognitive dissonance at Zerohedge regarding the fiscal cliff is fun to see. Their desire to see Obama fail in everything and increasingly anti-american whining is getting on my nerves

    1. We can complain all we want.

      And why not?

      Complaining is tons of fun.

      But one thing remains true.

      Zerohedge is a great website.

  2. I was called away for several days to a city in the Midwest. Did not have access to the internet. I found myself missing your words. This either speaks ill of my enjoyment of what you write, or your words. I'm leaning towards the former.

    G-d Bless.

      It really is.

      Peace.

  3. A few questions: Do you speak Korean? Are the Rice Children bilingual?

    1. My kids speak both languages.

      They learned Korean from the Dragon Lady.

  4. Deflationary, inflationary, blah, blah, blah. With every country monetizing their debt, and no " safe" yield to be found anywhere, combined with lack of trust in most governments makes gold a good investment........look at the 10 year chart, absolutely beautiful. Why can't one be a good human being, not necessarily Christian, and be a successful investor as well?

    1. I don't think it's about good or bad.

      It might be more of a serving two masters sort of thing.

      But what do I know?

  9. The sad thing about ZH is that many of the mysterious Tylers, and 90% of the commenters, are nihilists. They're sour on life, so they lust for chaos and death, thinking that will resolve something. "Let the muthafugga burn!" seems to be the motto. It's about as contrary to the message of Jesus (in whose divinity I don't believe, but he was a fine philosopher-rabbi) as you can get, which is why I can't understand why you're so devoted to that site.

    I'll give ZH credit for being way ahead of the corporate media when it comes to breaking news and scandal such as high-frequency trading. But as far as the collective mindset there, it's utterly anti-social. Most of the paranoid schizophrenics on the psych ward where I work have more empathy than your typical ZH commenter. Youself excluded of course! Mr. Smith.

    I find myself reading Naked Capitalism more these days. That's in part because I'm a leftist, and Yves' crew leans liberal. But they've got sensible centrists such as Bill Black penning posts. The comments section is educational and well-mannered. Someone once said the ignore any comment on ZeroHedge that was less than three lines long, because the short ones are almost always angry bullshit. That's not a problem with Naked Capitalism. People there write with their brains, not their balls.

    1. It's always great to hear from you.

      I love Zerohedge. I don't know why.

      I'm also gonna check out Naked Capitalism.

      Happy New Year.

      And give all the psychos a big hello from their Uncle Smith.

      Peace.

  10. Hi, I've noticed your posts on ZH exclaiming the "masters" will hammer out a deal.

    I think you are a little confused. Politicians are not the masters, whether they are working out a deal or not.

    1. The politicians just do what they're told.

      The real power players are Wall St. and London.

      Peace.

    2. then why confuse the issue by calling politicians "the masters".it's unnecessary and harmful.

    3. My bad.

      Perhaps my words weren't clear.

      I'll try harder in the future.

      Happy New Year.

  11. One of these days we will all realize that none of us are right or wrong, we just have our own opinion and a view.
    A wise man once said: "The minute you think you have everything figured out, you don't".
    The people who "truly" control matters, events, and the world, are extremely smart, well thought out, and operate on a completely different thought pattern and level than you or I can even start to fathom.
    I appreciate and listen to all opinions and views, but I also remember that that's all they are.
    I've yet to understand how as loving human beings, we can turn our backs and so easily attack anyone who has a different opinion and view than we have.
    To all, Have a Happy New Year!!
