AIG Bonuses, Impending Inflation, Teleprompters... and awesomeness.

I think the employees of AIG have earned their bonuses. The company should be under water right now, liquidating amongst the capitalists of the world. Rather, they managed to swipe billions from the USA. From a corporate view, they've earned their bonuses.

The administration is looking to conjure a bogyman so it can perpetuate a sense of crisis. In the words of Rhambo, never waste a good crisis.
And the printing of $1,000,000,000,000? Three cheers for rampant inflation. It'll be a joy when gas is hitting $5 a gallon, if only because the consumer price index rises due to inflation. You simply cannot just print more money, that is one economic lesson that the chronicles of history scream incessantly.

As for our Fearless Leader Barak H. Obama, he was a busy man on Tuesday.
"Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address in Washington when he realised it all sounded a bit too familiar.

It was. He was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

Mr Cowen stopped, turned to the president and said: "That's your speech."

A laughing Mr Obama returned to the podium to take over but it seems the script had finally been switched and the US president ended up thanking himself for inviting everyone to the party."

In other news... 1000 posts.
Didn't figure I'd break 4 figures this soon. Thanks for reading and commenting. I'm terribly blessed to have grown up in an age where the Internet has come into its own, and it's really amazing how like minds that are thousands of miles apart can still come together in the blogosphere.
