Helicopter Ben Bernanke Animated GIF

Helicopter Ben Bernanke

This is another animation I made in GIF format (animated GIF).  It’s Ben Bernanke flying his helicopter.  I think the helicopter I chose here is more analogous to his monetary policy than the other illustrations I’ve seen out there.

Jon Corzine Steals $1.6 Billion, Walks Free

Corzine Strut

Jon Corzine, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and MF Global, former Governor and Senator of New Jersey stole $1.6 billion from MF Global clients.  Then Jon Corzine simply testified that the money vaporized and walked free.  Imagine that.

If you or I steal a car, we go to jail, but if you’re part of the global elite, you can pretty much do as please.  You don’t even have to appear before a real court; you can just testify (lie) to your buddies in a committee or a panel and go home to your mansion.

Truck Parts Have Arrived

The motherload finally got here. I spent several months ordering parts and collecting them at my brother’s, which he then put in a crate and shipped to me.  Thanks bro, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Basically, I ordered everything I needed to rebuild the front end (including Sway-A-Way torsion bars from eshocks.com), plus some trim, like a new chrome grill and side-view mirrors.  I also got new rear axles.
