I was just saying this to Mrs. F this afternoon after having to listen to Greenspan testifying before Congress on CNN as I was sanding plaster:

Apparently, it never occurred to the great guru that wealthy people would be greedy enough to destroy the system. It didn't show up in his "models."

Greenspan, who called the current financial crisis a "once-in-a-century credit tsunami," said that he remained "in a state of shocked disbelief" that banks and investment firms did not do a better job of analyzing the risks involved with investing in home mortgages extended to less creditworthy borrowers.


Shocked disbelief? Maybe that you'd live long enough to get splattered with the shit from this, but you knew the banks and mortgage houses would milk it for all it was worth.

Fucking Greenspan the Thinker. He spoke gibberish all those years and everybody thought he was a fucking genius. Nobody knew what the fuck he was saying; even he didn't know what the fuck he was talking about. This is all on him but if he points the finger any faster he'll break his arm. Fucking asshole.

There, I'm better now ...
