Just when I think I have a good handle on just how completely, mind-numbingly retarded the average American is, I am reminded that I have only seen just the tip of the iceberg. This time around it was watching weeks of headlines that all resembled some variation of “Polls show [insert random retarded Republican presidential candidate] would beat Obama” but then today I saw “With economy improving, Obama would beat Romney“. Look retards, I know the mainstream media and the US Government are pumping out round the clock bullshit propaganda saying the economy is improving… but honestly are you idiots so brain dead that you still believe it? Can’t you see prices of necessities like food and energy going through the roof? Can you not see that you are barely earning any more [inflated] money than you did last year, or five years ago, that is, if you’re lucky enough to be employed at all? Can you not see how many of your friends, family and neighbors are unemployed?
What the fuck is wrong with you? You, the average Joe the Plumber, are absolutely dumber than dog shit. The average American deserves what he is about to get. I just can’t believe how stupid you are, Joe. I could write a long diatribe describing exactly why I feel this way, but luckily I don’t need to because JimQ has done it for me in his article “Illusion of recovery, feelings versus facts“:
The last week has offered an amusing display of the difference between the cheerleading corporate mainstream media, lying Wall Street shills and the critical thinking analysts like Zero Hedge, Mike Shedlock, Jesse, and John Hussman. What passes for journalism at CNBC and the rest of the mainstream print and TV media is beyond laughable. Their America is all about feelings. Are we confident? Are we bullish? Are we optimistic about the future? America has turned into a giant confidence game. The governing elite spend their time spinning stories about recovery and manipulating public opinion so people will feel good and spend money. Facts are inconvenient to their storyline. The truth is for suckers. They know what is best for us and will tell us what to do and when to do it.
The false storyline last week was the dramatic surge in new jobs. This fantastic news was utilized by the six banks that account for 80% of the stock market trading to propel the NASDAQ to an eleven year high and the Dow Jones to a four year high. The compliant corporate press did their part with blaring headlines of good cheer. The entire sham was designed to make Joe the Plumber pull out one of his 15 credit cards and buy a new 72 inch 3D HDTV for this weekend’s Super Bowl. When you watch a CNBC talking head interviewing a Wall Street shyster realize you have the 1% interviewing the .01% about how great things are.
What you most certainly did not hear from the MSM is that the NASDAQ is still down 42% from its 2000 high of 5,048. None of the brain dead twits on CNBC pointed out the S&P 500 is trading at the exact same level it reached on April 8, 1999. Twelve or thirteen years of zero or negative returns are meaningless when a story needs to be sold. On Friday the hyperbole utilized by the media mouthpieces was off the charts, leading to an all-out brawl between the critical thinking blogosphere and the non-thinking “professionals” spouting the government sanctioned propaganda. Accusations flew back and forth about who was misinterpreting the data. I found it hysterical that anyone would debate the accuracy of BLS (Bureau of Lies & Swindles) data. (read more)
That article pretty much says it all, from top to bottom. If you don’t get it now you never will. All of that said let’s look at a comment from somebody that “gets it”:

Nobody with an IQ above 100 is going to risk their savings to create a new business in the predator controlled USSA, and that’s why employment will continue to fall until the system completely collapses (probably due to hyperinflationary efforts to mask the truth with fiat toilet paper).
The USSA is finished. And almost certainly, mankind is finished. Humans are dumber than rocks, dumber than any other species. No other species honors, defends, supports, sanctions and finances the predators who prey upon them. Only humans do that. MORONs.
And let’s compare that to one of the average, dumber than dogshit masses:

If real unemployment is nearly 25%, what do you suppose it would be with your “therapeutic” austerity measures? Austerity is a prescription for the destruction of liberal civil society. It means fascism. That would be the real world outcome of the Ron Paul libertarian daydream applied to 21st century mass society. He’s got good intent and fine principles, but he belongs to another time.
The 1% create this deflationary environment. Don’t kid yourself about inflation. People don’t have any money. It is a lack of money fueling this economic trauma. Commodities price inflation is pure speculation, not increased demand. In a world wide slowdown, the price of oil rises, in spite of falling demand. Pure manipulation. The market is rigged to force prices always upwards.
The solution is regulation to prevent commodities speculation. Regulation to curtail the derivatives market and force it into the daylight. Regulation to break up the TBTF banks. Regulation to get rid of the Fed insider’s club. The people need credit at low cost. Instead it is being given to speculators. There are no low interest rates for consumers. 40% or more of debt is usurious interest paid to so-called “investors”, parasites.
We need more transparent government to regulate and get rid of the libertarian sonsabitches now in control, playing their insider games and fucking the people.
That’s right Joseph, the same government that fucked you up the ass to the tune of trillions to further enrich Wall St. will come to your rescue with more regulations. The only thing America is lacking is more governmental control and power plus more cheap credit for consumers you say? You really think consumers only need to take on more debt, you shit eating idiot? Your stupidity is so blatant it’s painful. I could go on for hours about this but it’s already been done, Zero Hedge is absolutely overflowing with articles exposing the wafer thin veil of bullshit the Bureau of Labor Statistics is attempting to sheath reality in. Maybe a horrific world-wide catastrophe is inevitable. Maybe what the world really needs is a good old fashioned Darwinian filtering of the gene pool… if so Joseph, your odds don’t look good.
