Keeping the Circus Spinning Along

There seems to be no limit to the amount of madness, purposely concocted by the top 1% of lunatics running the circus, or simply allowed to happen.

The grand theater here in the States is just ramping up, with impeachment being its latest show to keep the masses divided, their attention diverted, listening to jive artists with their  ‘he said, she said, they said, it said’ rendition of nonsense. This sick and dying republic is throwing up one white flag after another, begging ‘no mas’, but the tricksters in Washington could give a shyte about tackling real problems that the people face, instead, primping and sniveling before camera’s, providing the spectacle of a nauseating farce that will never end.

What kind of real problems?

47 Percent of GDP – This is Definitely the Scariest Corporate Debt Bubble in U.S. History – via themostimportantnews.com

At this point, companies listed on our stock exchanges have accumulated a total of almost 10 trillion dollars of debt. That is equivalent to approximately 47 percent of U.S. GDP

A decade of historically low interest rates has allowed companies to sell record amounts of bonds to investors, sending total U.S. corporate debt to nearly $10 trillion, or a record 47% of the overall economy.

In recent weeks, the Federal Reserve, the International Monetary Fund and major institutional investors such as BlackRock and American Funds all have sounded the alarm about the mounting corporate obligations.

Ah, but who cares about shyte like this. The Washington demons have to get rid of a dickhead-in-chief, so they can implant another dickhead-in-chief to keep the circus spinning along, while the masses are either drifting along in the winds of apathy, or so enthralled with the shitf**kery of it all that that they are losing their minds to full-fledged dementia, rooting for one group of a-holes over another group of a-holes.

But not to worry too much for the debt-ridden corporations.  There are a handful that are doing quite nicely.

The “Silicon Six” – Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google and Microsoft. Collectively, they had 2018 revenues in excess of $800 billion and currently have a combined market capitalization of more than $4.5 trillion.

The “Silicon Six” have avoided over $100 billion in taxes between 2010 and 2019, according a report from Fair Tax Mark, a British organization that certifies businesses for good tax conduct. They analyzed 10-K filings to compare tax provisions, which is the amount corporations set aside to pay taxes, to cash taxes, which is the amount actually handed over to the government. – via zerohedge.com

You and I can’t avoid one dollar in taxes. These jackals are basically paying f**k all in taxes  – a reality gifted to them by Washington shysters that enable such shitf**kery to continue, and continue and continue – no matter what dickhead occupies the oval orifice.

And more holiday gifts from the government:

Scientists Resume Efforts to Create Deadly Flu Virus, With U.S. Government’s Blessing – via forbes.com

For more than a decade now, two scientists–one in the U.S. and one in the Netherlands–have been trying to create a deadly human pathogen from avian influenza. That’s right: they are trying to turn “bird flu,” which does not normally infect people, into a human flu.

Not surprisingly, many scientists are vehemently opposed to this. In mid-2014, a group of them formed the Cambridge Working Group and issued a statement warning of the dangers of this research. The statement was signed by hundreds of scientists at virtually every major U.S. and European university.

…In response to these and other concerns, in October 2014 the U.S. government called for a “pause” in this dangerous researchNIH Director Francis Collins said that his agency would study the risks and benefits before proceeding further.

Well, four years later, the risks and benefits haven’t changed, but the NIH has (quietly) just allowed the research to start again, as we learned last week in an exclusive report fromScience‘s Jocelyn Kaiser.

But don’t worry – there is so much shitf**kery on the horizon from Washington’s lizards – that you’ll never know just how much you’re being screwed, until the day comes when the three-ring circus completely crumbles, and you’re sitting there at your kitchen table, wondering, where are the funds coming from to allow me and my loved ones to eat our next meal.

Continued f**kery – day after day, after day.

And we allow this shyte to continue, while we the innocents continue to suffer – no matter the political party in control.

  1. Fantastic song! As for the circus of the absurd, I think of Epstein, and how very many people he knew, powerful, connected people who now must be at least somewhat scared that the next shoe will drop right on top of their heads—scurrying like the vermin they are, I bet.
