OK, who is voting in your poll? Doesn’t everybody know you have a perverted lust for Mekons?
Could it be that the rise of Zombie movies made those awful things, eg. “French May”, happen? STOP TEH ZOMBIE MOVIES!!!
Resident evil = Good Zombie Movies.
Hot babe with serious firepower and kukri knives. What the hell else do you want in a movie?
If you live in a densely populated neighborhood with apartment buildings facing apartment buildings, at some point you will see each and every one of your neighbors naked.
This is a feature, not a bug…
Tomorrow is here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You haven’t seen my neighbors!
And soon it will be gone.

Oh snap. I can haz fame now.
Autographs are 15$ each. Form an orderly queue. And, you know, maybe show a little leg or something.
Doesn’t everybody know you have a perverted lust for Mekons?
Unlike that other guy, with the perveted lust for melons.
Nah gonna mention names!
Guess what’s here again?
P.S. zrm, re: your bond market link: That trade was done July 21. Yields on bonds are much lower now (and prices are much higher). We’ll see what happens on Monday, but I’ll be very surprised if 30 Yr Bond yields get back up into the 4.20 area they were back then (closed at 3.82 today).
So, MOOBOB,, are you telling me that you find it inconceivable that the MOTUs actually conceived it a whie back, and have been pushing for the political shenanigans ever since? Because the Whiny Ass Tea Baggers strike me as particularly easy to lead, as long as you’re willing to lie.
No, I’m just saying that if that was a speculative trade to make a profit on a price decline in the bond market, it’s an enormous loser right now.
(And if it was a trade to hedge a long position, it still has had the effect of offsetting an enormous profit.)
I plan to live with the ones who didn’t turn feral, ’cause they hate those ferals, ‘specially the Glowing Ones.
Oh wait; that’s Ghouls, not zombies! Oh well; I still got my Blackhawk and the hunting revolver. Let those fuckers come and get some, damnit! Hell, my Sneak skill is maxxed out, so those dumb bastidges won’t even see me before I blast their heads into a fine, red mist!
thundra, correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought the gist of that article was that the buy was predicated on bond futures, not the bonds themselves; and that it was placed so that they made money if the bond rating was dropped, essentially shorting on bonds, if that’s possible.
I dunno. Creative banking is irritating to me. But the article seemed to be saying that the shadow investors are making money on their billion dollar bet, even with the price decline in the bond market.
The article was written right after the trade was made. If they took off shortly after they put it on, they may have made money…but unwinding a trade large enough to make a ripple will tend to create the same ripple in reverse.
Yes, they were shorting bond futures, but bond futures along bonds themselves have gone up in price a tremendous amount since then, primarily because the stock market has gone down in response to economic indicators indicating a slowing economy, along with out government deciding that austerity is the best way to respond (aka Hoover, Jr.).
So you’re telling me that I shouldn’t hate on the anonymous billion-dollar investors in that article?
Damn. I haz a disappointment; I was hoping to have ALL NEW banking assholes to hate on.
Well, what would I know about bond futures, anyways?
Got this from Bluegal on The Professional Left podcast this week:
Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: You don’t give up.
gonna put that up in the header. Sorry, VS.
at some point you will see each and every one of your neighbors naked.
Note the corollary that each and every one of mikey’s neighbors has seen him naked.
Wow. Fame is fleeting.
hah. that quote has been up there for weeks, vs.
But that’s not what I added to my blog.
given mikey’s antipathy toward pants, I bet its actually difficult to see him NOT naked.
This is not disturbing in any way.
Pants are the Hitler of Liberal Fashionism.
“But that’s not what I added to my blog.”.
I’ll happily donate my trousers if you’d like to add them to your blog…
It’s really not a problem at all.
I’m not using them right now…
ZRM, any update on the voting?
Here’s teabagger market update (and don’t worry, I blame our Reagan wannabee Preznit, too):
DJIA 11,178.81 -265.80
NASDAQ 2,456.32 -76.09
S&P 500 1,164.52 -34.86
VOTING IS TOMORROW, THUNDRA.
And I don’t vote, because I live in a district already represented by a decent Democrat.
So far, Great Orange Satan has been doing a pretty good job of overview. Polls indicate the Dem is ahead in three of the races (although two are in single digits) and of the three remaining, only one R is ahead by double digits. The upcoming Dem recall races indicate leads for all Dems.
But for an off-season, off-year election, voter turnout is hard to predict. The Dem Party, at least at the local level has been doing a pretty good job; sounds like the Rs are demoralized and are resorting to spending scads of Kock money (I mean, outside of the vote fraud and felony arson.). Which, admittedly, usually works for them.
Ed Schulz will be broadcasting from Madison tomorrow.
And as long as the rest of us have to eat shit, I happily endorse DOW 200. So they can pound their imaginary money up their imaginary shit-holes.
Sing the praises of pants:
