|for the Karl Denninger|
So ... after months of the Karl Denninger's sanctimonious boasts that he was going Galt and shutting down the TickerForum, that he could no longer stand to feed Leviathan with his productive work, after the total disaster and public humiliation of his calls and advice on BBRY, after the endless fawning tributes from his sycophants, as if each week heading into the end of 2013 was a new station of the Cross for this hero, after banning every last interesting participant on the ol' TickerForum, after all this foolishness:
I choose instead of either active participation through funding of our government's BS or violence to peacefully withdraw my consent. To refuse to labor. To make do with less -- a lot less. I choose to reduce my voluntary contribution to the tax hoard that is misspent or forms the foundation against which our government borrows, giving the proceeds to those who think that doping it up is a grand past-time or shoveling guns, missiles and money to terrorists while groping our grannies, using the very existence of the terrorists we gave the guns and missiles to as justification for what any civilized society would call sexual assault.
The portion of that which I earn by my efforts that I am able to retain in real terms shrinks by the day, and I have concluded that the balance of benefits and harms, especially the harms done to others using my tax dollars, is no longer acceptable to me.
After all this ... both the Market Ticker and TickerForum are still up, pretty much as before. It looks like he dropped the inline ads (or they dropped him! LOL), but that's about it.
What. An. Asshole. What an absolute asshole.
And how can Karl possibly write this kind of crap:
In fact, you're a damned sheep, as you've been warned -- repeatedly -- that this was exactly what you were going to get by myself and others since 2009, and further, you were also given a political path forward to stop this crap and tear down the monopoly pricing schemes and scams that led to this situation over the last 30 years, all of which came about due to the very use of government force you endorsed to ram this crap up all of our butts.
But you believed Obama would "help you."
Obama and the Democrats had an intention to "help" all right -- help themselves to all your money and leave you without medical care because despite paying into their scam you don't have money to cover the deductible!
You didn't want to listen to people like myself, who were warning you for the last four years that you were about to get bent over the table and screwed blind to within an inch of your life. We were called names, including being told we were "racists" and "teabaggers", reviled and dismissed.
The media wouldn't interview us, you wouldn't take us seriously and guess what -- we were right.
Now, all you Obama lovers who literally knelt before Zod -- eat your damned peas and quit bitching because you got exactly what you not only asked for, you demanded.
... WHEN HE HIMSELF VERY PUBLICLY VOTED FOR OBAMA IN 2008. Chutzpah much?
What a joke, what an embarrassment, what a complete piece of garbage you are, Karl Denninger.
