There are no Atheists in Quantitative Easings

One way or another, when they start printing more money, everybody gets some kind of religion...

...and here I was just complaining that the Commonwealth gambled a portion of my eventual pension on a massive (and obvious) pension scheme.

I clearly did not pray for sevens and elevens hard enough.

One of those above "pensions" should have been a "Ponzi," though I'm not certain which.

Evangelical gamblers. Gambling evangelicals. It's like "matter-anti-matter"

I blame BINGO.

In related news: "If there are no atheists in foxholes, there are no libertarians in financial crises."

Thanks for the link. It spirals a bit out of Jeff's control, doesn't it?

Yup, pretty hard to get proper credit for original thought nowadays. I personally like Luskin's quote from back in September:

Anyone who says we're in a recession, or heading into one — especially the worst one since the Great Depression — is making up his own private definition of "recession."

There's one quote I bet he wishes was "misattributed."
