The Mega-Perma-Bears are right. WE"RE ALL DOOMED!!!!
The elite crew of the most bearish bears who can see what others can't and believe that the United States is doomed, that most Americans will eventually lose their jobs or file for bankruptcy are right to be afraid, but their fear is misplaced. It's not the economy that's going to get us, it's PIGS! Big Fat Giant PIGS! Look out for the PIG BOMB!
Pig Bomb: Hogzilla Lives
Pig Bomb: Super Pigs
Pig Bomb: Sinister Swine
I was absolutely wiped out after a long day last night when I was finally able to sit down and rest for a few seconds at around 8:30 or 9:00. All I wanted to do was veg out to the television for a few minutes before going to bed, but nothing was on, no baseball, no hoops, no shows, nothing. While filpping around, I came across a prime time Discovery Channel show called "Pig Bomb." The absurd title caught my eye so I flipped it on for a few minutes. It was freaking hirarious.
The Discovery Channel is usually pretty good, but this show was absurd. They were trying to make it look like there is an epidemic of giant Russian hogs is taking over the United States and that none of us are safe. They seriously talked about pigs kicking in the front doors of houses and attacking people and they made it sound like none of us are safe. I laughed especially hard when they had to put subtitles on the screen to translate what the hicks that they found to talk about the problem were saying. Classic.
I'm sure that there is a lot of larger than normal giant pigs running around out there and that they are causing some problems, but to take a legitimately fixable situation and make it sound like the Armageddon is wrong.
The giant pig story is almost like a parable for what is happening with our country today. A bunch of giant pigs on Wall Street and elsewhere got too greedy and too powerful and they wreaked havoc all over the world. There clearly was a problem and we will pay the price for the excesses of the past two decades for a long time to come in the form of slower than normal growth. But in my opinion, to take the current situation and to assume that we're doomed and that most Americans will eventually lose their jobs and file for bankruptcy is taking things too far. You have to be careful when you're predicting the end of the world because it only happens once.
