FMJRA: FDR’s Mercantile Jaundice Returns, America

Posted on | November 24, 2012 | 13 Comments

by Smitty

Party like it’s 1935! This week’s FMJRA celebrates the Even Greater American Depression (EGAD), and the benighted central planning that brings it. The bad news is that the Wombat is on the road, and can’t support the FMJRA. The good news is that I’ve had some time off to rest and recharge, and still remember where most of the bodies were buried to support this task. Yes, I’ve been blogging less, but the reason is good: I’ve been working on a fiction project. More on that when there is something to say.
No one has been intentionally excluded. Send URLs for inclusion to me or the Wombat.

#OccupyResoluteDesk is not a crook, and he’s not going to go down over this burglary in Benghazi

Can’t quite figure out how to guage this one. I don’t doubt that sufficient evidence exists to throw the bum out.
However, politics has long trumped character and evidence, so it seems as though BHO may ride off into the sunset in a white Ford Bronco on this one.
Did I say ‘white’? How raaaaacist of me. I have been considering the idea of using German words for colors in lieu of English. Make that a weiss Ford Bronco.

    Obammer might or might not be a crook in the strictly legal sense. (That is, one who can be convicted of personal illegality.) There’s no doubt, however, that he runs a corrupt government.

    As for Benghazi, it’s up to us to make it stick. Heaven knows it’s an order of magnitude worse than Iran Contra, and far worse than Watergate as well.

    Spiffy FMJRA, Smitty. But who won the award?

    Gaaah, I really didn’t tabulate that. This is the difference between my style and Wombat’s approach, I guess.

    Speaking of FMJRA, did you notice that Morsi’s power grab took place right after Bammie and HRC gave him a sloppy one?

    We’re probably not supposed to connect those dots, because #racism. Also #fairness.

    It seems our need and Egypt’s are quite similar: los coronels con cojones muy grande.

    Fair enough. I kinda liked that you made it more substantial (more like a blog). And it looks damn good, too. Edit.1: Also, EGAD. 😀

    Someone at AOSHQ noticed that it hasn’t gotten that much attention in the press and I replied, “Let me know when the MSM covers anything potentially embarrassing to The Lightworker, then we can all go down and have a snowball fight with Dahmer, Bundy, Hitler and Stalin”.

    That Schwarze Witwe quip the other day was pretty raaaaacist if you ask me. I know you didn’t ask, but that doesn’t matter in these things, as you well know.
