Dominique Strauss-Kahn as Pepe Le Pew

Video footage has been found of the IMF head forcing the chambermaid to give him…well…head.

And this is the new 21st century Pepe Le Pew cartoon for kiddies under 12.

Or have I got them around the wrong way?

Zimbabwe criticizes U.S. and calls for sound money

Fuck this is funny.

This is ‘through the looking glass’ stuff.

It can’t get any more surreal.


Head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was arrested attempting to fly out of New York, after he was accused of raping a chamber-maid at the Sofitel Hotel in New York.


This is the kind of behaviour coming (so to speak) out of the elite bastions of privilege in world banking.  Accused of raping a chambermaid.

Well, it kinda makes sense.  I mean, they’re financial rapists.  So, it’s no big step to involve yourself in physical rape.

The implications for world banking, for diplomatic immunity, and for the prestige of the IMF are unfathomable.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Cue public relations consultants worldwide to bid on this little job.

Get silver bars – it’s on sale

Perth Mint is out of silver bars.  Completely.

Ironic, because paper (or more accurately, electronic) silver just dived to $33/ounce.

Perhaps the paper price will get to $20/ounce.  If so, I guarantee it will be a paper price not a silver bar price.

If there’s anyone out there who can get silver bullion right now – real physical – buy it.  I can’t find it.

Collection of quotes on honest – and dishonest – money

A great collection of quotes is contained here.

The best one, by Chief Justice Salmon Chase in dissent of Knox vs. Lee:

The legal tender quality [of money] is only valuable for the purposes of dishonesty.

And perhaps the funniest:

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, and that’s good enough.
