I'm just generally tired, so I'm taking the day off. Here's an "open" thread.

If you haven't seen it yet, below is the CBC documentary, graciously supplied by "forwhomthetollbuilds". Very kind of him to take the time to record and upload. All three parts are below. Part III is the only one of real interest.

Obviously, the producers chose to exclude the information which I was hoping would finally begin to see the light of day. Thus the title of this post. I'll try to pick up my armor and rejoin the fight next week but, for now, I can't help but feel a bit dispirited.

Have a good day and try to remember to play nice, keeping in mind, of course, The Golden Rule.

And Yet

through it all, the conflictions, apparently intended in the grand play, in the endless struggles during the ascent of mankind, much pleasure is simply derived from just loving a significant other, watching the kids grow, helping as best able, as backyard papa bird chirps steadfastly on guard, as mama bird is out hunting, with chicks so patient and quite. There are many pleasures in life, thank god, in this spooky world, full of nefarious characters, witch hunts, lock downs, various perspectives, dens of lone wolves, and teams of heavies, marveling most, and sometimes all, in a place called hell, earth.

Sincerely Yours and Most Respectfully,

It is an honor to be your obedient Servant

Moskva Mulcheina's

Moscovites awaken!!!! from an earlier post


was fantastic, for 3 sigma types, or just common Russians, living in outer space, and it was full, what a day for day dream, to the hilt, John Sebastain turning, where there is hell, a place called earth, Belinda Carlist also turning, where 20th century Moscow being the epicenter, of course, where Rome is just a playground, its just a matter of personal taste, of course, then we have the often looked for moon shot, purgatory, on the moon, going lunar, out of this word stuck in orbit, nuts wacko suitable for loons, of course, a place for the wishie washie types, Pontus Pilot was a star, for two melleinniun, in the bright lights filming, between rocks and hard places, on the lunar rocks, going wacko of course, with rolling stones, in sympathy for the devil who routinely appears during a full moon, yet was first seen in the bright sun, go figure, where the master author was finally liberated where Matthew made a cameo with and for the devil and in and for bright lights, where the master author of the book finally got peace, with his chick witch, the queen of the dark ball dancing, to print his fifty year suppressed book, in self interest, the same old same old, and there was the sun, the center of the universe, many correctly supposed, so let there be light, as one of the trinity was hung up to dry, in a rain storm, and Pontus Pilot, they two finally exited stage left, but were not pink panthers, that old snaggle puss, we bugs could use him, even if dist by some, the ultimate investigator, who finally figured out who done it, looking into a mirror. The movie was a complete riot, literally and figuratively, of course, with some hanging tells, of black cats going off with a six shooter, the KNVD ducking for cover, yet another set of stars in that cosmos, those KNVD scoundrels, where, an insult is the reward for hard work, which not only is historical soviet slang, but appropriate for devil cats and helpers, black cats and devil helpers and scoundrels and all, just hilarious, the KNVD dazed and confused finally brushing it all under the bed, the devil was an artisan hypnotist, obviously, to the applause of many Moscosvites, and life was nice again in lock down, and of course, there cant be good unless there is evil, how true how true, and so my celestial friends, out in outer space, with divine inspiration, don’t get hung out to dry, on margins, there is an eternity out there, looking for the moon shot, and as always just keep stacking.

Sincerely Yours and Most Respectfully
In is an honor to be you obedient Servant

You'd almost think

You'd almost think that ZH have it in for Santa as well:

"Everyone has to make up his mind whether he wants to believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus, and the Vampire Squid who shorts gold and silver “naked”. All we can do is provide the evidence. Santa would not fit into the chimney of a wood fireplace nowadays, much that of an oil burner."

rambling on which, in these older, golden years, in a spooky world, full of bank robbers, thieves, rocket jocks, bugs, hot heads, truthers, and protoreptilians, just to name only a few nefarious characters, don’t you think it odd, that the king pin sprouting ancient coins, properly encased, in glass, in the Eiffel tower, made of fifty ounce gold windows, having a team assembled, in courageous canuck lands, of a team of gold heavies, when asked if its all still there, which really is a good question, obviously deserving of a smile, saying yeah, that’s a good one, is nonetheless on the right track, going in circles in the latest race to the bottom, trying to fill an Olympic size pool, while common heads are swimming, and spinning, or ringing, he has with apparent kindest regards to others occupying tracks besides, as all were sitting together, cumbiya style, in a race to the top, during a race to the bottom, has actually assembled a team. Well how about that, of impressive ones, but without the impressive one, borrowing an army, from time to time, with predictive powers, with a CFTC guy couched shot gun, apparently unseen, another blues clues, but apparently went awol as the missing key skill, and not sitting cumbiya style, apparently uninvited or not qualify, there's another blues clues, with those spooky predictive powers, the apparent lone wolf, in a spooky world, who is probably out playing a yo yo, behind the wheel, again, with all kinds of tricks, predicting the latest celistual alignment, with yet another CFTC guy, but failing to prove who done it, before tax and crash, as another starting gun, of another race elsewhere, or during that race to the top, during the global race to the bottom, goes off near that impressive team, while, one of them is surely at least eyeballing that 1TD zimbabwe note, getting totally numismatic, in this spooky world of dens, of such impressive ones, so, one might think that the team missed the boat, and cant bag the mob, without the impressive one, also failing to bag the mob, whilst desperately trying to find out who took it, as it must be gone from the fort, it must be, yet the team misses a key skill out playing the yo yo, apparently. So, until the pool is filled, knowing where's it gone, and who done it, keep swimming, and do always keep stacking.

Sincerely Yours and Most Respectfully

Turd has his specialties, and is doing a marvelous job. Many Hat tips. We all should be thankful for the site. BRAVO is the word that comes to mind.

An observation is the use of "TURD", in that it is self-ridicule, which is very disarming when surrounded by hot heads, in a contentious theater.

Bravo comes to mind, again.

Manipulation also can serve objectives, like lighting off dyno sticks for the rocket jocks, when raw raw is needed, to chilling out the mirv bombs to preciously focus, when targeted peace is needed, indicating to one, that a master is at work.

Bravo comes to mind, yet again.

Next post: Hot Damn!!

Feeling dispirited

Turd, you're going to feel dispirited as long as you don't listen to what I'm saying and don't do what I suggest.

Electionic Systems

once proposed a system, herein, cant recall, but it had to do with proving 1) that there was dumping, and 2) HFT electromagnetic detection for detecting the source, got no responses and of course, not tips, and was just blown off. But it does relate to the problem presented, on how to take down the mob. That is, how to sink the ship, and take down the mob, and put the TPTB, TBTF TBTJ out of business as usual. Now we got AM who can apparently, predict, unlawful trading, its a great start, and maybe that is a key role. But, typically, no one man can do it all, really, but a team can, each skilled in particularly ways, contributing to the whole, with varied skill sets, combined, going for the gold, can do it. Damn it, we are Americans, and we CAN DO, well some us are. Maybe the aggregate buying is a sure way, and much time is required for it to play out, and it looks like it will, but dont underestimate the COMBINED, FUNDED, TARGETED OBJECTIVE, TEAM sought to cut corners, expeditiously. Passive complaining players must wait it out, but active concerned players may expedite. Dont expect Kenysians and totalitarians will not help us out. Bugs and Freedom lovers UNITE!!!

And through the eno, the ying and yang of mankind, there is a season for all, in that endless struggle. Currently, in our time, Kenysians and totalitarians have the upper hand, but what right just now, and for what purpose? The pendulum swings, as the balance scales move. The purpose now is standard of livings of use all, market force redistribution, and hence, for this time, personally, I fall squarely on real money and freedom, our time is due, and now, is our time.
