How to Pluck Chicken Little

Our quarterly memes have arrrived again this week. The quarterly scares are:

1. The imminent collapse of the US dollar.
2. The probable imminent al-Qciada attack, LIHOP or MIHOP variety.
3. Iran requesting Japenese refineries use the yen for crude oil (what happened to that Iran oil bourse? ).
4. A USS ship heading to the Gulf signals imminent war on Iran.
5. A prominent public figure (Ron Paul, Sheehan, etc.) hints that 9/11 was possibly an inside job and "they" may do it again, any day, maybe in your town, on you.
6. A new old bin Laden tape surfaces.
7. A prominent figure or someone close to a prominent figure (McCain's aide) is lewd and lascivious.
8. Sadly, however, the young blonde celebrity caught on tape handling a pipe, a bottle, or penis was not produced this week.

First of all, if the dollar collapses, rest assured that the rest of the world economies collapse. You will not be alone.

Yes, we could be attacked at any time, by terrorists foreign or domestic. We might also be hit by a humongous asteroid and spin off into space in trillions of rock showers thus ending any need to worry about anything. You could be hit by a bus tomorrow and spend the remainder of your days in a vegetative state receiving substandard, but free, medical care in a State institution.

Iran's request for yen saw the yen post it's biggest weekly gain in months. That's what friends are for. Japan will sell dollars to raise yen and there will be plenty of buyers. Japan imports about $10 billion in crude annually from Iran; approximately what you pay per month for war on Iraq. The world cannot afford a USD collapse; it would be a self-defeating course of action. The US dollar will collapse when Americans stop spending, either voluntarily or involuntarily. See the power you have?

USS Ships moving into and out of the Gulf is SOP. No one makes any money if ships are not maneuvering.

The terrorists are coming, the terrorists are coming, so-and-so said so. And? Do you not have your plastic sheeting and duct tape?

New tape with old Osama bin Dead long time. Proof that Hollywood writers and special FX really aren't that good, unless you're a 10-year-old addicted to Harry Potter.

Pols and their aides-de-camp are whores, and cheap whores at that (Bob Allen was arrested Wednesday after offering to perform oral sex for $20 on an undercover male police officer).

So ... no real news is good news. I think.
