The Weekly LOLs #6

Hemorrhage – a significant loss of blood volume or a damaging loss of valuable people or resources suffered by an organization, group, or country.

Hemorrhage is broken down into 4 classes by the American College of Surgeons’ Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS). side note – this is an awesome class if you ever get the chance. Anyway, we’ll skip the first two classes and we’ll apply those definitions to the stock market.  Politics and body fluids. Isn’t this fun?!

Class III Hemorrhage involves loss of 30-40% of circulating volume. May cause a citizen’s blood pressure (spending) to drop, the heart rate (hoarding) to increase, decreased peripheral perfusion (charity), and the mental status worsens (unresponsive to stimuli).

Fluid resuscitation usually necessary. (Just print more money, right?!)

Class IV Hemorrhage involves loss of greater than 40% of circulating volume. The limit of the “body’s” compensation is reached and aggressive resuscitation is required to prevent death.

We’re Here, Folks!! The market is down 40+%. Rainy day funds are gone. Nest egg funds are hemorrhaging. Exsanguination = Death

Whatever you do, now is NOT the time to apply a tourniquet around the neck of your patient.

I collect snippets, just for fun:
” At $410 billion, the bill represents an 8 percent increase over last year’s spending levels, more than double the rate of inflation.”

“President Barack Obama will break a campaign pledge and sign a budget bill laden with millions in lawmakers’ pet projects, administration officials said.”  Broken promises?  Say it ain’t so!? Here’s more:   The Top Five

New Vocabulary Word of the Week – charlatan |ˈ sh ärlətən; ˈ sh ärlətn| noun
— a person falsely claiming to have a special knowledge or skill; a fraud

Case in point:  POTUS describing the stock market decline: “fits and starts”, “bobbing up and down”, “day-to-day gyrations”, “Profit and earning ratios are starting to get to the point where buying stocks is potentially a good deal if you have a long-term perspective.”   Bobbing? Gyrations? So, now he’s not just my president, he’s my CFA! Well, here’s my long-term perspective……I can see the bottom from here.

The Shining Hypocrite Award goes to: Help me decide…..Geithner or Obama?

“Over the next several months,” he said, “the President will propose a series of legislative and enforcement measures to reduce such U.S. tax evasion and avoidance.”  — Timothy Geithner
I’m fully confident the BHO cabinet can do their jobs from a jail cell, just fine. 

“casual dishonesty of hiding irresponsible spending with clever accounting tricks.” — Barack Hussein Obama
speaking about his ongoing rape & pillage of American taxpayers LOL, not really…just slamming President Bush as usual. Man, get on with it already!

*****

I wish I had a dollar for every time BHO said “crisis” this past month. He’s getting so predictable and boring with all the “crisis” & “cataaaaaastrophe” rhetoric. I mean with that kind of income, I could AFFORD to pay other peoples’ mortgages. Dear Leader, doesn’t that Blackberry come with a thesaurus?

*****

Smooth noob-move at the Kremlin, Mr. Prez. Here’s a hint from a commoner. We didn’t win the Cold War because we were smarter or stronger. We won because our capitalist toys were bigger & better than their socialist toys.

    You are a brilliant expository writer and forensics expert in all three meanings of the word=)
    I just wish the LOL’s made me laugh more than want to look away. It’s like a train wreck but it is not an unrelated accident it is my county bleeding out.:( I do try to stay informed and read up on what is going on around me. However there is such a strong impulse to try to find a happy place and not think about it too much. I feel so helpless like all I can do is pray. I also want to reach out to all the hurting people who will be affected by these policies right along with me. I really don’t know what to say so that is why I really appreciate what you do. You look at it and break it down and sprinkle a little sugar on this bitter pill.

    Thank you, Lisa. “God is in control & He’s coming back.” This thought never leaves my head as I see these events unfold.

    Sheri,
    It hurts so much to listen to or read the news, so little good and positive but tons of bad and negative. I do appreciate that you put a bit of humor, frequently dry but always good, into the news.

    Even so Lord Jesus, Come.
