Minutes of the latest PPT Meeting

Discussion in 'Psychology' started by Arthur Deco, Oct 12, 2008.

  1. I had to give up my certain knowledge of "what women want" to my sleazy informant at Treasury to get and share with you this astonishing dialogue:

    Bush: This session of the PPT is now called to order. Mr. Secretary?

    Paulson: Mr. President, the markets are tanking like we haven't seen since the Great Depression. We need to intervene directly! This window-dressing bullshit ain't gonna cut it anymore!

    Bush: What do you suggest?

    Paulsen: That we resume aggressive buying of index futures!

    Bush: Why the fuck would we want to do that?

    Paulsen: Why, sir, to shore up the markets!

    Bush: Fuck that! If we're going to nationalize everything from Fannie Mae to Krispy Kreme, short! Let's get the lowest possible price!

    Paulson: I get it! When we re-privatize five years from now we'll all make a fucking killing as consultants!
  2. Paulson: "Mr. President, we could be headed for a Great Depression"

    Bush: "Well that's great! As long as we avoid a recession."
  3. Hey Arthur - you and Jack are the only two guys on ET that have lived thru the Great Depression so can you two tell us what it was like so us young bucks know what to expect?
  4. Apples for a nickle and pussy for a dime! But eventually you get tired of eating both.
