Horse Semen, Scalding Hot Coffee: Matt Taibbi Suddenly Making So Much Sense

matttaibbi.gifWhen all is said and done, there are two types of men in this world. In one camp you have the kind who, when faced with criticism, will ably defend themselves, either through words or fists, or simply brush it off. In the other, you have the impotent little bitches. These are the ones who will immediately lose their cool and scream and shriek at you, their voices most likely cracking. Then they’ll throw coffee in your face, and chase you down the street. I’m not saying that Matt Taibbi is an impotent little bitch, but I am saying that this is apparently his chosen course of (re)action. If you want to come to the conclusion he’s an impotent little bitch, that’s your choice. From the latest Vanity Fair:

When I first contacted Taibbi for this story, he replied unenthusiastically. “Ugh. No way I can talk you out of this, huh?” he e-mailed. “In the end nobody really wants to read about a couple of overgrown suburban teenagers writing about anal sex and the clap and then calling themselves revolutionaries when some third-world dictator gets bored of letting them stay published.”
He then fell out of touch, re-emerged a month later, and agreed to meet me for lunch at a Manhattan restaurant. I arrived late, and he was visibly annoyed. There was no boyish smile. “I just don’t see why you’re doing this story,” he said. When I told him that Ames was now living in New York he grew more agitated. I mentioned some of the Exile pieces of his I planned to write about, and he said, “That was covered in the book.” I told him yes, that was true, but the book had been published in 2000, and, frankly, I didn’t think it was very good.
“The book wasn’t good?” he said.
“No, I didn’t think so,” I said.
“My book?” he said.
“Yes, the Exile book. I thought it was redundant and discursive and you guys left out a lot of the good stuff you did,” I said.
At this, Taibbi’s mouth turned down and his eyes narrowed.
“Fuck you,” he snarled, and then picked up his mug from the table, threw his coffee at me, and stormed out.
The restaurant was packed with customers, and they all turned to watch as I sat there, stunned, coffee dripping from my face. The waiter arrived with the milkshake Taibbi had ordered. After wiping myself off a bit, I went outside, where Taibbi was putting on his coat, and asked him to calm down and come back into the restaurant. He walked up to me, glaring, beside himself with rage.
“Fuck you!” he yelled. “Did you bring me here to insult me? Who are you? What have you ever written? Fuck you!”
I tried to talk to him, but gave up when he walked away. I went back inside, paid the bill, left, and began walking up Sixth Avenue. Halfway up the block, I turned around, and Taibbi was behind me.
“Are you following me?,” I asked. He walked toward me, raising his arms as though preparing to throttle me or take a swing.
“I still haven’t decided what I’m going to do with you!” he said.
“Are you kidding?,” I asked.

Taibbi-Cat wasn’t. But maybe this is an unfair anecdote to use in order to shed a little light on the boy who sits at his typewriter trying to come up with theories for how Goldman Sachs has been able to take over the world, then exclaims, “I’ve got it!” and furiously taps away that it all comes back to the chip Lloyd Blankfein had installed in his sack one night in the basement of the Federal Reserve. Here’s another one, involving MT storing horse semen in his fridge, and then throwing it in someone’s face.

Yet The Exile was too vitriolic to romanticize for long or to consult just its fans. And listening to the critics is too fun. They call Ames and Taibbi, singly or in combination, children, louts, misogynists, madmen, pigs, hypocrites, anarchists, fascists, racists, and fiends. According to Carol Williams, of the Los Angeles Times, “It seemed like a bunch of kids who’d somehow gotten funding for their own little newspaper.” A former New York Times Moscow-bureau chief, Michael Wines, offered a no-comment comment. “I think I’ll pass, thank you,” he e-mailed, “except to repeat what I said at the time, and what Shaw said a lot earlier: Never wrestle with a pig. You just get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.”
Of course, a pig is probably not the farm animal that comes to Wines’s mind first when he’s reminded of The Exile. It was Wines, then the Times’s Moscow-bureau chief, who, having won The Exile’s coveted Worst Journalist in Russia March Madness contest in 2001, was typing in his office when Ames and Taibbi rushed in unannounced and, by way of congratulations, slammed a pie in his face. The pie was made with fresh vanilla cream, hand-puréed strawberry, and five ounces of horse semen…[which Taibbi had stored] in a special thermos in his refrigerator, where his poor girlfriend had to see it every morning.”

    Later, reporting from Manhattan, he exposed Wall Street’s complicity in 1998’s disastrous ruble devaluation, bought a gorilla suit, walked to Goldman Sachs’s headquarters on Water Street, and sat down on the lobby floor for lunch, announcing to the security guards, “If Goldman Sachs can make a $50 million commission selling worthless Russian debt, then I can come into their offices in a gorilla suit and eat a sandwich on their floor.

    @10 just because you go into the comment section of a finance blog and berate the commenters doesn’t make you an idiot hippie. The bandana, torn jeans, Apple computer, bad breath, philosophy degree and body odour make you an idiot hippie.
    The number of logical fallacies and poor communication skills make me think you may have sojourned in St. Petersberg at some point in your academic career. Wank off and go read a Che Guevera bio or something.

    Listen up CHILDREN. Running around trading on daddy’s money, and making believe you own a business because you filed for a LLC or some incorporation papers or because you sat behind daddy’s desk doesn’t make you a business person.
    The reason the entire country is in trouble has nothing to do with YOUR LIVES. You can lead your pathetic lives anyway you wish. Turn it into another episode of AS the douchebags turn.
    Nobody fucking cares. Just get your dumb asses out of the banking business. You’re not Stock Traders. You’re not securities dealers. And you’re not BANKERS.
    You’re just people who committed what’s commonly referred to in legal circles as Mortgage fraud.
    And yes I’ve been to St Pete. It is what it is.

    I wasn’t like every other kid in my finance class, you know, who dreams about being a multi billion dollar hedge fund manager, I was always more interested in what synthetic CDOs were made out of. Richard Gere’s a real hero of mine. Stumpf. Stumpf would be another person who’s a hero. The bank he’s created over the years, I don’t get how they seemingly avoided the abortion that is California real estate, but the fact that he’s cakin’ it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what security I’m creating? No. Do I know what I’m doing today? No. But I’m here, and I’m gonna give it my best shot.

    No on second thought. Impress me with your “knowledge”.
    Go ahead toss it all out there and see what comes back.
    At least Cramer had the horse sense to go BACK to law school so he had some clue as what it was that you REALLY do.

    Or did I not choose my words wisely enough for you?

    @ the petty children.
    See you’re Traders, not bankers which is fine. That’s a good thing. Get your dumb butts out of the Banking business.
    Giving a trader access to the bank is like letting the Chicken Hawk in the coop.
    Enjoy what you got. Now make some future plans that don’t involve what we just allowed you to perpetrate.
    And for god’s sake, pay down some of that debt. It doesn’t fit you.

  58. Ass_ociate says:

    @budhak0n: Going to law school is pretty much a horrible idea except for the very small minority that don’t have to take out loans. See e.g. (n.b. Elie Mystal). And it had nothing to do with Cramer’s “success”.

    @58 = @27?

  60. Rahodeb says:

    This budhakon guy is hilarious. He’s got some blog out there where he bitches and moans about the consipiracy that is student loans and how he can’t pay his off because he didn’t learn any marketable skills in school. Pure gold. Sounds like Creed from The Office.

  61. budhak0n says:

    I would concur with the fact that Law school is a collossal waste of time. But I think some of the insanely stupid in your industry would be wise to seek some wise counsel but you do realize that the lawyers are right now laughing as hard as humanly possible in their offices.
    See there’s a problem when you think you can “buy” everything you need. Money helps. But not everything’s for sale.
    And it drives certain people Bonkers. Hey it’s ok. You’ll survive. Just do some wierd film like that guy who recounts his days as a Miami coke dealer and hang around south beach trying to latch onto Rodman when he gets out of Rehab.
    You guys never like this make believe banker gig anyway. You want to be a SupaStah

    @ budhacon – I have self-imposed a moratorium on using the words “lib. arts degree” but since we are discussing Mattie the Commie here, and since your comments are anti-Godly and anti-semitic, I cannot refrain myself to utter them in disgust.
    To dumb it down for you: the role of banking in society is to allocate capital whereby the max return is derived @ the level of risk. Regulated allocation of investment activity worked pretty well for the Eastern Block.
    So, regulate away, until 2012, or until the utter failure of the US of A to get its shit straight, whichever comes first.
    Lawyers’ role in society is to mop up our messes, so be grateful we keep your ilk busy.
    P.S./ I am ready to allocate some money to whatever assets you would have available in December 2011, when the one term experiment will be nearing completion. People like you make me think we need to petition GWB to come back.

    When I lived in Moscow, I used to read the Exile newspaper, it was free monthly rag, but appeared randomly. Mainly due to random cashflow.
    Matt & a guy called Mark Ames used to run it, and the horse semen thing, that’s pretty mild compared to some of the other stuff. It was a small part of a radical libertarian experiment known as 1990’s Russia.
    That said, Matt used to write the most amazing feature articles, and was the main reason why it was worth reading.
    It’s a shame that all Matt’s eXile articles aren’t available online in the eXile vault. None of the really good ones are online here:

    The majority of Dealbreaker readers DO NOT sit around in their paid-for apartments trading daddy’s money in their etrade account; on the contrary, those who do (or claim to) are the subject of many a joke and insult around these parts.
    Dealbreaker is read, as others have pointed-out, by those of us who actually work in finance, investment bankers, traders (across every asset class and most geographical locations, strategies, etc), money managers, academics, and all other sorts of professionals.
    You, quite clearly, are not among this cohort. As a friendly (seriously) suggestion, do yourself a favor and show yourself out before you make yourself sound like an even bigger ignoramous. If you continue on this path, no good shall come of it, certainly not for you, although you’ve provided a good laugh thus far, so personally, I wouldn’t mind you hanging around slinging your brand of crazy ignorance (or is it ignorant crazy?) a little longer.

    You do not understand – we feed from your anger (almost like in Star Wars), our fuel is VOLATILITY in the markets, and our souls are eternal. It is a zero sum game, and you seem not to be handling being a left tail distribution outlier very well.
    P.S./I have stated earlier which brand of olive oil I use for my Menorah but if you insist, I can make an exception (although, on second thought, your melted fat would probably smell pork-ey). Bone marrow makes for a good stew, though, so I dunno, it’s a wash…

    By the way, what you just did is what it is.
    Identify yourself. See this is what we’re dealing with today.
    Pissants who basically hide behind things.

    “Yeah it’s difficult with the kids and I sometimes have to stop myself and ask whether in some ways I’m doing this to “get away ” from them a bit more often…
    “My wife is an O.T. so it has fallen upon me since she was earning more to be the one who is with the kids most of the time. My mother fortunately is here 8 months out of the year ( rest of the time in Florida) and when I was doing my clinical work in Phlebotomy I had the kids in the Hospital sponsored day care center…
    “I’ll be doing a Post Bacc in the Fall and I am going to be putting the 3 year old in an On campus Pre School of sorts which will be good for him anyway… The baby ( 6 months ) will stay with my mother and I’m really trying hard to get myself into a MWF schedule…..
    “The days when I could do the spread out 5 day a week class schedule are long gone and I wouldn’t feel right leaving him there more than maybe 4 hours 2 days a week at his age…
    “The spring will be more difficult b/c my mother spends her time In Madeira and basically rolls out on my January 1 every year .. not to be heard of again until the summer ”
    If accurate, this might explain a few points.

    You seem to be enjoying yourself but on Deal Breaker you’re not likely to find a sympathetic ear.
    You will certainly encounter those of a similar view at There you’ll be able to focus on the evil of finance, advocate the elimination of the federal reserve and the return to the gold standard and maintain that the crisis was manufactured and, anyway, all the banks should have been allowed to fail.
    You and the rest of the Tea Baggers’ solutions would be almost comedic if they weren’t so naive and dangerous.
    Rabble…Rabble…Rabble. Sharpen the pitchforks. Rabble…Rabble…Rabble. Light the torches. Rabble…Rabble…Rabble. Dismantle the FOMC. Rabble…Rabble…Rabble. Re-implement the Gold Standard. Rabble…Rabble…Rabble. End the fractional reserve system of banking. Rabble…Rabble…Rabble. Let the money-center banks fail. Rabble…Rabble…Rabble. Bring us Greenspan, Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner, Blankfein, Pandit, Dimon, Mack, Benmosche and Cassano. Rabble…Rabble…Rabble. Everyone in the finance industry makes millions. Rabble…Rabble…Rabble.

    Taibbi, bitch or no in person, is and has been a hell of a writer since I started reading the eXile in 2000. Whether or not you admire the man, his arguments are cogent and his language is vivid.

    Budakh0n / Brian Kelly –
    So in your post #100, you mentioned not owing anything to any banks on any of your properties. I thought I’d check that claim out, so I went to the Cape May County recorder of deeds website (public records available to anyone, not using proprietary bank assets to spy on you) and found all of the deeds recorded in your name as either grantor or grantee. You seem to have been quite active in the real estate market over the years. Why, you and your wife seem to have purchased and sold many a property! In fact, if I were to venture a guess, I’d say you were a bit of a real estate speculator in your time. My God! That means I’m being reprimanded for being a wannabe banker by a fucking slum lord! A God damn house flipper? Who drove up that bubble market again? Who lead us into this fucking mess? Surely a fucking house flipper had nothing to do with it.
    Not only are you a troll, shore trash, a goddamn house flipper and a nobody, you, sir, are a hypocrite. Take a good hard look in the mirror, and repeat after me – “I made this mess, too.”

I think it’s swell your father was a cop and that his brother sold used cars at grampy’s shop, but I’m not sure what that has to do with the dozen properties for which you’ve held deeds in the last decade (but didn’t flip).

    rather than make broad generalizations and paint everyone who works in financial services as individuals who spent the ’00s in an evil lair, scheming on how to take down the world economy by packaging and selling RMBS, why dont you please explain to all of us what exactly you want. Also you’ve made some thinly veiled threats to the commentors on the board, please elaborate on what you plan to do. Frankly it doesn’t take a very big man to make threats on the internet and i think it really says a lot about both your intellectual capacity and your grasp on reality.

    budhak0n your incessant posting is nothing but jibberish in which you don’t actually make any semblance of a point. From your posts on the other board I gather you have ambitions within the medical profession of some sort and so while that’s very good for you I also think it’s fairly unreasonable for you to be commenting that wall street is the scum of society when you strive to enter an equally dysfunctional industry in the US where doctors are paid more then just about anywhere else in the world and are gouging that same main street individual, in instances up to and including life and death, you advocate for on here.
    “Yeah I can make you better but you’ll be bankrupt because of it” Is that not the motto of your industry?

  158. guest says:

    @Budhakon – I think everyone who has read this string agrees that you clearly have no real insight into this industry or what we do. The people on this website that you have so tirelessly tried to insult would not be insulted by your intended insults but rather by the fact that you assume we issue MORTGAGES!! I assure you that there is a middle or back office function for that, and my guess is that the people who actually issued those big, bad subprime mortages probably make less than your wife, so you should not be insulting them, but rather providing them with free health care services and subsidizing their housing by allowing them to stay in you slummed out properties for a discounted rent rate.

    Nobody’s looking to discourage young people who work. But some people would be pretty interested in some of the other stuff you’ve pulled lately.

  161. Anal_yst says:

    Were I not out of the office today I’d hardly consider dignifying your inane, uninformed babble with a response, however, today is your lucky day.
    How do you think the companies you depend on to produce the products and services you use every day of your life stay in business? Do you think they operate on a cash basis? They only make things when they already have the money on-hand or when they are 100% guaranteed of cash on delivery to the end customer?
    Uninformed simpletons like yourself constantly stick to the claim that Finance produces nothing, that the entire industry is a leach upon the manufacturing economy. News flash, buddy, Finance has been around since the beginning of time, and will be around until the end. We do the (mind-numbingly boring, annoying, etc) work of making sure Dell has enough $ to make that new computer you just bought to start that new small business that we just enabled you to finance because your local bank didn’t have the resources/ability to do so.
    Working in Finance (usually) isn’t glamorous; on the contrary, alot of what we do is painstakingly unpleasant, to the point that very few people want to, or could do it for any sufficiently long period of time. Combined with the fact that our clients value our services – after all, without us, they’re up shit’s creek – is why some in Finance get paid what most people consider a shit load of money. However, we realize we aren’t Heart Surgeons, saving people’s lives (or extending them, as it often is). We aren’t delusional (at least most of us aren’t), so we bury our faces in size 6-font 200 page offering documents and several-thousand-line excel models or whatever, and make our money.
    I’m not sure if you’ve raised a single legitimate criticism thus far, and I’m fairly confident you are unable to do so, but on the off chance you can, please, enlighten us with your unrivaled Financial and Economic wisdom, oh heralded one!

  168. budhak0n says:

    Well you seem to forget in order to have a “Finance” industry you have to have one component, and you’re doing a bang up job with that one champs.
    Let’s clarify this. You make a living off of Other people’s social security numbers and income.
    You have no respect for the rule of law and I would gather you don’t even know what those words mean.
    And you’ve landed yourselves in the middle of just about the hottest water you could have EVER generated for yourselves.
    And if you learned some manners, maybe some people would let you off easy.

    And now you get to have fun with the rest of us.
    Oh and I’m not poor dumb ass. You’re the idiots who bankrupted yourselves.
    Good luck in all your Future endeavors, “SHARKS”
    Yeah nobody has ever come before you. Nobody could’ve EVER seen your blatantly obvious nonsense years before you pulled it.
    Hilarious. Better start getting the boxes ready.

    Bess, that was in terms of the “royal we”, not actually to you. A better phrase would have been “I have no idea who these people are or what they do but this shit breaks all the time and someone should tell someone to fix it and that, by the way, I don’t say that because I’m a douchebag (which I am), but because they’re either overpaying for whatever it is they’re getting or losing ad revenue because of it, so, either way, someone should slap someone around because it makes no sense, even ignoring my own self-interest.”
    Sound more reasonable?

  181. guest says:

    @182 just going to reprint anal_yst’s voice-of-reason comment til it sinks in:
    The majority of Dealbreaker readers DO NOT sit around in their paid-for apartments trading daddy’s money in their etrade account; on the contrary, those who do (or claim to) are the subject of many a joke and insult around these parts.
    Dealbreaker is read, as others have pointed-out, by those of us who actually work in finance, investment bankers, traders (across every asset class and most geographical locations, strategies, etc), money managers, academics, and all other sorts of professionals.
    You, quite clearly, are not among this cohort. Ergo, GTFO.

    @douche nugget
    You know the funny thing is? When I graduated college I thought finance was too benevolent. An old buddy wanted me to open up a Check Cashing/Payday Loan shop with him. He is now cakin’ it big time and I look like the idiot. Last time I try to do anything good for society.

    so it appears you are/were/aspired-to-be a phlebotomist. for those on the board that dont know, basically you draw blood from blood donors and plasma sellers…a blood sucker, a vampire. in taking their blood at the plasma center which you work at, you are preying on those less fortunate that you, very noble sir!
    my gf is a physician (a fellowship in REI) and has, on many occasions, made fun of the phlebotomists, often noting that they are basically the ditch-diggers of the healthcare industry…no skillset or or meaningful education required yet they think they are actually contributing something.

  201. guest says:

    The difference between Taibbi and Budhak0n is that Taibbi’s critiques are, in fact, cogent. He sets out explicit premises and then draws conclusions logically supported by those premises. You might draw different conclusions based upon those premises, or you might dispute the factual accuracy of those premises. Nonetheless, Taibbi’s arguments are not unsound (in the logical-analytical sense), even if you believe them to be invalid.
    As for horse-semen pie, most of the young turks who comment on this site would probably shower praise on one of our own who pulled that gag on, say, a proponent of the Volcker rule. But, in truth, few besides Taibbi are that ballsy or sociopathic in real life. Those kinds of bona fides are what make Taibbi a potent critic in a political and media space otherwise dominated by the self-interestedly circumspect.

    @ budhakon: as said earlier, enjoy being the leftmost outlier in the distribution of wealth and fortune. (maybe you compensate with good looks, hopefully so, as proven brainless).
    One suggestion – whatever your prescription, it is not working. Up it up, champ.

  207. Anal_yst says:

    I disagree with pretty much 75% of Taibbi’s “facts,” “assumptions,” and “premises.” He’s a sensationalist writer who’s in WAY over his head, who comes off as just trying to generate a name (read: $) for himself. He exhibits little, if any journalistic integrity (not that many do, these days), and should not, by any stretch of the imagination, be celebrated.

    “That’s great. You generated paper you knew to be false and you passed it off on a Government agency.”
    Um, huh?
    Please spend a minute explaining exactly what it is you think we all do / did do (for a moment I’ll live in your world and pretend everyone on this board does the same thing). You lose points for using the phrase MORTGAGE FRAUD.
    I’m just trying to gauge your understanding of the thing you think you’re mad about, and that the collective “we” are responsible for.
    Please give examples of what, specifically, you mean by the following:
    1. Generated Paper
    2. Knew to be false
    3. Passed off on a government agency

    Wow this thread has been a great read, thanks all!
    Also I’d like to repeat (for emphasis) the distinction made by previous commenters between the following:

    People who AREN’T mortgage originators
    The first group, with the help of the financially illiterate, were the perpetrators of mortgage fraud.

    Oh and you’re so mysterious. Nobody could ever decipher your intricate machinations about this or that.
    Wonder what you do? Hilarious. I know what you do.
    Like I said, when you grow up maybe they’ll let you in to play with the big boy toys.

    Why is it that you didn’t finish law school, or if you did, why aren’t you still serving that noble cause? Ranting about senseless litigation didn’t serve you well. How are you so pious now, was it the pathetic representation of delinquents under your lonely shingle that helped you make you peace? God knows the legal field creates so much good.
    Where is your kid? Instead of spending quality time shaping your offspring you decide to wage a crusade against the “evils” of this world.

    Wow you’re so original. Nobody could’ve ever dreamed up something so epic as this little dazzler.
    For an encore, what you’ll do is simply follow your heroes, Arthur Andersen, Bernie Madoff, Bernard Ebbers, Dennis Kozlowski, and then when you run out of CEO Straw men to use as the fall guys, you’ll just move on to some other noble pursuit like Leg Waxing.
    You don’t get it? This time you didn’t just scam a company. Companies come. Companies go. Hahahaha.
    You really bit off more than you can chew on this one Punky Brewster.
    And what’s worse is you think a guy like me has something personally like a group of ne’er do well little pissants like the smack asses involved in this thread.

    Ya know. American Banking system. What the heck. Let’s smash it all up into a million bits.
    Funny. Yes. Amusing. Not so much so. But since you’re starting to figure out that you’re broke and you’ve lost your lines of business and revenue, the writing is much more than simply on the wall for most of you.
    Who are you kidding? You’ll never make it past the first pylon. What did your older cousin tell you the secret handshake or the how to interpret the mystery of the wanker review.

    This guy has to be kidding. Who references Punky Brewster. Really! I think social services needs to be called over to whichever shed you’re residing in and take you children away from you. You’re clinical!
    Why don’t you present something of substance. Instead of just pointing your finger and hitting buzz words like “mortgage fraud”, “criminal” etc., detail out exactly what you thing the finance world is and where it went wrong. What financial products are you talking about? Do you even know?

    Play on a rugby team? Like to make believe you were an athlete? Make up stupid stuff about how you’ve re “derived” equations you copied out of your finance textbook.
    Never really understood what the heck Einstein was talking about?

  238. guest says:

    I think the source of enjoyment we’ve collectively gained from this admittedly incoherent string of posts by budhakon stems from the fact that type A personalities like ourselves tend to suffer from inferiority complexes (you know it’s true my fellow future BSDs of America), and Budhakon’s inability to clearly and concisely express himself as the representative of the medical field has reassured us all that we are significantly smarter than the average middle-aged wanna-be MD who plays mr. mom to three children while wishing to one day be able to contribute the equivalent of a first-year analyst’s compensation to his family’s financial pot.

I was going to go with the plane theory a la Mr. Stack but decided not to for two reasons. First is Manhattan so you’d probably get shot down quicker than you probably did with every woman you ever talked to until meeting your I’m sure very ugly as well as probably not faithful (yea your taking the kids to school and she’s probably banging some male nurse or some shit), yet more alpha than you wife. Second, Stacks’ manifesto, albeit insane, actually did make some sense and actually did correctly state a few points of law, a task you seem to be incapable of.

    You’re broke. You’re running around trying to collect on behalf of your employers or your employing corporations money that you’re never going to get.

    “LEVERAGE” is a Television Show. This website is nothing but the ramblings of people who need therapy.
    You have no EQUITY. You have NO CAPITAL.

    The only reason people are allowing you to stay in your homes is because it’s a better alternative to tossing you out in the street.

    You’re a Mark. A schill. Just a silly anecdote.
    I met a girl the other day who was working in a bank who reminds me a lot of some of the posters on this site. She wanted to tell me great stories about how her dad was a doctor in the army but never really HAD A HOUSE.
    Who the f runs around from place to place without a house? Who the f has no roots other than what they could put on their credit card or equity loan before runing to another town or another state with bankruptcies chasing behind them.

    When you get in trouble, you ask for the help of the federal government so you can continue your life in a Rat infested hellhole that makes you feel important because you salute a flag or walk by a bull every once in a while.
    Cab drivers know you’re a mark.
    Police Officers know you’re a suit.
    Firemen laugh at the fact that you take yourself seriously.
    You spend your days HOPING that the perfect assistant walks through the door any moment in the hopes that you won’t have to write or read the same inane nonsense for yet another week.
