The Burning Platform
You know we’re up shit creek, when the government admits and reports a negative GDP number, like today. Doesn’t matter much, the stock market once again made a new record. Same old shit in the land of Bernaccio and Grandma Yellen, and unicorns and fairy dust. I don’t know how the Wall Street criminals can even look at themselves in the mirror anymore.
Forget weed, we need to legalize prostitution. It’d boost GDP by a full percentage point at least. Talk about Keynesian stimulus, I’m all for it….
How Britain Calculates Its Hooker “GDP Boost”: 60,879 Prostitutes x 25 Clients Per Week x £67.16 Per Visit
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 05/29/2014
First it was Italy which, as we reported last week, had decided to “boost” its GDP by adding the estimated impact of cocaine and hookers. And now, riding on the coattails of this economics gimmick designed solely to make the economy appear more solvent, it is Britain’s turn, whose Office for National Statistics will also add add up the “contribution” made by prostitutes and drug dealers. According to the Guardian “for the first time official statisticians are measuring the value to the UK economy of sex work and drug dealing – and they have discovered these unsavoury hidden-economy trades make roughly the same contribution as farming – and only slightly less than book and newspaper publishers added together.”
But but but Trickle Down Works! And wars improve the economy! And printing money creates a higher GDP! Keynesian will cure this! The FSA will save us! More Ethanol is the cure! Drill here drill now! More fracking! Medicare for all is the cure! We clearly need more private insurance subsidies! And bigger government, thats the ticket to the higher GDP!!
We need to save America by offshoring jobs and millennials! Truly a global currency, the FRN, will fix this! And triple CEO pay and lower the min wage to 2$ hourly increase the age of retirement to 99 yrs old! More military spending, yeh, thats the ticket to the super bowl, and and more US Aid to more countries and and more bailouts to foreign banks! Mandatory car ownership 2 18 and raise of obtaining a drivers license to 40 and make car garages illegal!
Shit, I should be Preznut.
No, I can’t back that up, I’m just a gnarled knuckled grease monkey that was refused entry into academia…but hey, maybe my theoretical reiterations of bad past ideas will change all that.
Gosh. I wonder what the REAL number is.
No wonder Obama looks like shit lately. Even in his ValJar Potemkin Village Bubble in which he resides, Obama must be figgerin out that the bottom is about to drop out.
Instead of a shoe box for his Preezy Library, I guess we will just have a smoking crater so the library is a matching set for the condition he has left the country.
Gotta keep up appearances!!!!!
Another No Knock Raid Leaves A Baby Disfigured
The police state is blatant now. The People will be forced to fight back. The cops are becoming like a private goon squad of Blackwater mercs.
I believe you are engaging in partisan politics. For Oreo said;
“… by most measures America has rarely been stronger relative to the rest of the world. Those who argue otherwise who suggest that America is in decline or has seen its global leadership slip away — are either misreading history or engaged in partisan politics.”
On the other hand, red bars on a graph that go down …. that’s bad, right?
Good Lord Almighty!!!! A baby?????????????
Innocent ….. Beautiful
TERRORIST ……….. Probably permanently disfigured
Reason for raid? Suspected marijuana use …. now a “terrorist” activity according to massive pigfuk copfuk, Sheriff Joey Terrell, Email: [email protected], Phone: 706-754-6666.
Police Response: ——– “The person I blame in this whole thing is the person selling the drugs. They don’t care about what it does to families. It’s domestic terrorism and I think we should treat them as such. We hate that this happened. This tears our soul out, but we cannot stop standing up and being the thin blue line against those who don’t care about, who want to do the domestic terrorism and sell dope and make the money. We’re still going to stand between them and still do our job – we’ve got to.”
Someone (like maybe the dad) needs to hunt down the grenade thrower and SHOVE A GRENADE RIGHT UP HIS ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A economist on potus this morning explained that GDP was down 1st quarter because inventory was down, nothing to worry about, all we need to do, he said, was to stock more foreign made stuff and have more retail sales.
When asked why inventory was down in the 1st quarter he clarified that retail sales were down in the 3rd and 4th quarters………..Gotta love these government paid economist, they make so much cents.
We’re going to stand up to be the thin blue line, kill innocent people, disfigure babies to do our job and stop domestic terrorist from smoking pot.
I wonder, how many of these pigfucks who wear a badge and kill an average of 500 innocent people a year, yet are protected by the law, would be another crazy fuck mass schoolkid killer if they didn’t belong to “The Force?”
The average braindead, brainwashed liberal is up in arms over Elliot Roger, but they are fine with these goddam badge wearing killers.
There is no hope, this nation is fucked up beyond all recognition.
The graph shows that the government reported positive GDP for the 1st quarter of 2008. Their 1st revision actually pushed it HIGHER to a POSITIVE 1%.
Five years later the very same government admits that GDP was actually NEGATIVE 2.7%.
Don’t believe anything reported by the government.
OK, it’s been half an hour. I am still LIVID with RAGE that the copfuks grenaded that child. You have no idea!!
I HATE this fucking country.
Why isn’t the entire fucking town protesting (or, preferably, attacking) that goddamn copfuk headquarters?? How in the fuck is it acceptable that the copfuks get away with it?? Worse still, that they blame the parents??!! The apathy of our citizens fucking disgusts me to no end. A hundred thousand Georgia Dawg football fans will cram stadiums this fall, while not ten outraged citizens will demand that those copfuks be brought to justice. Fuck Georgia. Fuck Amerika. Fuck pigfuks. Fuck it all.
I’m going to call that number above. More than once. I’ll probably say things I shouldn’t. I don’t give a fuck either.
I’m done trolling the internet for the weekend. I’m done watching any teevee. I’m done with doom and gloom. If I read one more piece of shit news, especially copfuk tyranny, I just might fucking go postal. I’m gonna think on good things. Work in the garden. Go see my parents, bake them a nice cake. Take a walk in the park just down the street and smell the roses. Try not to repeat in my head the phrase “fuck Amerika!” Build a wall and isolate myself from this shithole.
Have a nice fucking weekend. See you Monday.
And, oh, fuck Amerika!
There are numerous incidents of people digging their own graves. If you can figure out why then you will understand..
I don’t hate America, now the Government is a different story.
i too am beyond livid, i read that article a few hours ago on guns.com.
these swatfuks should be literally be burned at the stake.
people shoot their fucking mouths off about getting rid of all guns to save lives but when are people going to be willing to disarm the copfuks to save the lives of innocents.
they will proclaim they followed procedure/protocol and acted to preserve their safety and most people will buy it, the brainwashing is ridiculous.
all this because they were told by an informant (likely another criminal they squeeze) that someone who lived there sold meth and weed; for fucks sake.
don’t worry though, the officers are “broken up”, remember we should feel bad for what these brave officers had to do to stop people from getting high.
oh, and the guy they were looking for wasn’t even there.
i agree for the most part but it is america (the populace) that are failing to hold these shitheel pigfuks accountable.
until the accountability comes the shitstorm will intensify.
From what I see the cops have become lazy and brutal. What happened to just staking out the apartment and pinching the perp when he leaves. No that would take too much time and you wouldn’t be able to use all of your fun new military toys. The worst part is that this is the new normal for the police and other domestic armed forces. Swat raids have gone from a few hundred a year in the 1970’s to about 80,000 a year. If that’s not a recipe for disaster I don’t know what is. Someone should publish all the cops in this raids faces and the people of that city should be at their personal homes protesting the violence they have perpetrated, but that will not happen. Sad, just sad.
If they start counting prostitution in the USA will
that include all the whores in Congress ?
Like I said in the trigger thread these fuckers will come to your door and they won’t knock. What a travesty. Besides blowing up an innocent and ruining his life forever, what was accomplished by this gestapo operation? What was the net gain? They arrest a guy for selling a few joints out of his living room. Really? And justify it by associating selling small amounts of weed to terrorism. Unbelievable.
