Good bye, US economy 

According to the National Guard, 20 oil platforms are "missing". They're pretty big, so its safe to assume they're gone.

While forward prices have been remarkably well-behaved for sweet crude, gasoline is going to hit the roof. It's already over $3/gallon in some places. What does this mean? Moribund consumer spending. Heavy price increases for anything that doesn't naturally occur within walking distance of where you live. Bankrupt school districts and police departments. Can you hear it now? "We've got a bank robbery and hostage situation in progress. All units within walking distance respond".

Ah well. Like a wise rapper once said "I got guns".

I tip my hat to the wisdom of dearly departed Ronald Reagan, who put the kibosh to all that "energy conservation" hippy fag shit. Big up to all the sessions of congress that kept easing fuel efficiency standards so some fat white suburban motherfucker could make up for his tiny dick with a huge truck.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
