[MR Andersen provided this spontaneous commentary this morning over coffee up at the ‘eating restaurant’ in Eagle Lake, Minnesota, after the announcement of the admittedly rather panickey-sounding cut by North Atlantic central banks of the ‘prime rate’, to one-half of one per cent — BW]
I know that a bunch of God-damned crape hanging is not helpful. But obviously, Hell, NOTHING is. You Baby Boom dumb bastards ARE a load of crybabies and can’t take it, that’s for sure. I sure as Hell am glad that I did not marry some God-damn fool woman and daddy up a batch of you little shits! That’s for sure. Jesus Christ. [Mr Andersen was born in in 1919, he is a WW II veteran and working farmer, and he has never taken part in any federal farm programs — ed] So now that all the God-damn stealing has played out and the God-damn economy is hurtling STRAIGHT down the elevator shaft and RIGHT smack dab into the pisspot, what do YOU stupid bastards do? Why, you stick out your God-damn hands and try to stop it. Just like grabbing all that pussy and drugs in college. Jesus Christ. Some MORE of your God-damn greedy assholing around! Instead of calling the God-damn ambulance to be ready at the bottom, you 4F’s pour out MORE nonexistent government money, you CUT interest rates and TRY your God damnedest to get some God-damn runaway inflation going for sure too. And in general act like a band of stark staring ASSHOLES. God damn it! How dumb can you be? A bunch of goldbricks go and get their asses in a sling, so of course you stand back and wait for the dust to settle and THEN you try to do what you can. Use your heads. It is a lot cheaper to let consequences be consequences and set up a few soup kitchens for the dumb sonsofbitches than it is to shoot your God-damn load BEFORE the God-damn geese are even in range. And, Hell, even that brain sonofabitch Roosevelt didn’t stop the Depression, he might have paid off enough of the dirty bastards with giveaways so that they didn’t go Nazi and bullshit like that, but Christ…it took the Japs and a whole God-damn world war to get the whole crooked business going again. So what makes YOU piss infants think THIS time is any different? China maybe? Settle down, God damn it….
