Kill! Crush! Destroy! Shoot AIG Execs!

March 16th, 2009 No comments

I left a Facebook Status Message suggesting that AIG executives that take bonuses be shot for the crime of high treason and here are the many comments I’ve received. Feel free to leave your own here.


Alan Klein thinks AIG execs should be publicly humiliated, then shot in a public square for high treason. Oh, and then they should be dismembered.

Actually, dismembered and then shot!
Neal Fischer at 12:36pm March 15
I couldn’t agree more… but… what do we do with the people in our government who are, and have been for years, enabling them?
Alan Klein at 12:38pm March 15
They should also be tried for high treason. And, then of course, dismembered, shot and fed to vultures!
Alan Klein at 12:39pm March 15
(They shouldn’t go to waste!)

Why do u want to let them off easy? 😉
Alan Klein at 12:49pm March 15
LOL!
William Broberg at 1:02pm March 15
I think they should have to forfeit their bonuses to us for cocktail money!
John Magisano at 1:22pm March 15
Don’t hold back Alan. Tell us how you really feel!
Alan Klein at 2:59pm March 15
With the size of their bonuses we could have two cocktails!
Andrew Miller at 6:45pm March 15
You’ve got this all wrong. With their bonus policy, we should all be trying to get a job there….
Valerie Nuanes at 7:35pm March 15
yes, yes and yes.
John Webber at 12:41am March 16
As co-owners of their business we taxpayers get to fire them, right?
Gi Park at 1:47am March 16
Here here.
Jonathan Vehar at 9:44am March 16
Can’t we shoot them instead?
Alan Klein at 11:23am March 16
They should be shot, but only after they return any previous bonuses to the US Treasury — back to us taxpayers!

Jim Cramer can suck it!

March 13th, 2009 No comments

CNBC’s host of “Mad Money” Jim Cramer — and the entire network — received a well-deserved beat down from member-of-the-tribe Jon Stewart on last night’s “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central.

Cramer was squirming as Stewart showed shocking clip after clip of the Mad Money maven being caught up in lies and in cheating investors and the SEC — all of which caused Cramer to backpedal relentlessly throughout the interview.

Some are congratulating Cramer for his appearance on The Daily Show. While it certainly took balls on Cramer’s part to appear (just to have ’em cut off by Stewart), it does not make up for his transgressions nor those of his mother ship, CNBC.

Be sure to watch all three parts of the interview:

Pope Putz XVI

January 29th, 2009 No comments

Putz is a Yiddish word that means penis. It is used to describe a fool or a jerk. It is the perfect word to describe The Pope, Benedict XVI.

Pope Putz

He has decided to embrace a Holocaust-denying Bishop in order to, in his words, rehabilitate him. The Pope lifted the excommunication of Bishop Richard Williamson, an ultra-conservative, who recently said “there were no gas chambers” during the Holocaust, and, according to the Huffington Post, the bigoted Bishop recently went on Swedish state television with his outlandish anti-Semitic claims. In the TV interview he said that historical evidence is “is hugely against 6 million Jews having been deliberately gassed.”

Here’s the Williamson interview on YouTube:

Every major Jewish group is demanding that Pope Putz reverse his decision. You can make your voice heard by visiting the Simon Wiesenthal Center‘s Website. You can also visit the Anti-Defamation League for more information.

Yiddish Word of the Week

January 18th, 2009 No comments

In this new series on ObsessiveJew.com we will explore a different Yiddish word each week.

This will either help you to expand your Yiddish vocabulary (though since this is a nearly dead language, that has almost no practical value), or vastly increase your ability to hurl insults at just about anyone for doing just about anything you don’t like (this has immense practical value!).

Our first word is Schmuck.

schmuck (also shmuck)
noun informal pejorative
A foolish or contemptible person. A dimwitted fool or an unwanted guest. A clumsy or stupid person; an oaf.
ORIGIN late 19th cent.: from Yiddish shmok penis.’

Schmucku.com defines a schmuck’s behavior as ranging from “A schmuck’s behavior ranges from pesky and inconsiderate, to obnoxious and manipulative. A schmuck’s personality type ranges from jerk to bastard.”
One site even features a “Shmuck of the Month!” (The site’s most-recently featured schmuck is Joe Lieberman.)

Tech Overload Won’t Slow Me Down (instead I’ll jiust kvetch)

July 25th, 2008 No comments

Posting this from my iPhone 3G at 3:00 in the morning. No wonder I’m such a grouch lately in this suburb that goes to sleep too early. They call it the city of Los Angeles but it’s not a city by my definition.

More on that later.

Oh, and to the schmuck on eBay that committed to buy my 1st generation iPhone and then flaked: Screw you!!

I guess I’ll need to re-list…
