LIARS AND THE REAL ECONOMY
BTW, did you see that odd ball of a movie called, "Lars and the Real Girl", damn!, Any way, the story line was that this guy pretends that manikin is his girl friend and everyone in town acts as if she is a real person even though they know the truth. Amazing how art imitates reality, you should see the movie if you have not seen it, just think of the manikin as our own real economy, it will all make sense.
And why not, we are so used to living in a virtual world that the difference between fact and fiction does not matter, our brains are used to accepting fiction as fact, that is our reality.
The news says that we are saving 200 billion dollars in the TARP (also known as FART, Financial Assets Reimagination Tricks) program. Now the Democrats want to use "this money" to "create jobs" and the Republicans want to use "this money" to reduce the deficit, now I am not a Nobel winning economist but this I know, the money never existed in the first place, yes there is no money there, for real!, there isn't any, there never was, it was all imagined numbers, so how you can save it or spend it is beyond me. But then we also buy "sale items" on credit to "save" money.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
