SO there is the blogger fella here in that reddest of red places Idaho

Home of Larry "toe tappin" Craig and Dirk "lease the parks for gas development" Kempthone

He calls his self Free Market Duck

He says things like

Barack "The Messiah" Obama showed up on national TV yesterday and promised he will continue to hyper-inflate the U.S. economy with more of the same George Bush Fascist Business Model economics.

Yer basic Gold standard, all regulation is bad, Lassaiz Faire, Ayn Rand is like teh right and where its at Kinda fellow

But he is amusing, not a dick so much as a guy with a very different view of the world than me

Good sense o humor and creative though

The point of this is to share his musical xploration of The Fed

 Sung to Dire Strait’s "Money for Nothing"

I... want... my... ATM...

Now look at them bankers,
That’s the way you do it,
You print the money from the Fed Reserve.

That aint workin,
That’s the way you do it,
Money for nothin and your checks for free.

Now that aint workin,
That’s the way you do it,
Lemme tell ya, them guys ain’t dumb,
Maybe get a billion from a subprime mortgage,
Maybe get a billion from an SIV.

We gotta inject a trillion free Dollars,
Custom credit derivatives,
We gotta move these refinanced bailouts,
We gotta move these toxic CDs.

See the little banker with the earring and the makeup,
Yeah buddy, that’s your 700 Billion,
That little chrome-dome, got his own jet airplane,
That little chrome-dome, he’s a billionaire.

We gotta inject a trillion free Dollars,
Custom credit derivatives,
We gotta move these refinanced bailouts,
We gotta move these toxic CDs.

I shoulda learned to be a big banker,
I shoulda learned to loan that cash,
Look at that banker, he got it stickin out his pockets,
Man, we could rule the world.

And Paulson’s up there, what’s that?  Another Bailout?
Banging on the Congress like a chim-pan-zee,
No, that ain’t workin,
That’s the way you do it,
Get your money for nothing, get your checks for free.

We gotta inject a trillion free Dollars,
Custom credit derivatives,
We gotta move these refinanced bailouts,
We gotta move these toxic CDs.

Now that aint workin
that’s the way you do it,
You print the money from the Fed Reserve.

That aint workin,
That’s the way you do it,
Money for nothin and your checks for free,
Money for nothing... and...

And your checks for free.

Get your money for nothing...
And checks for free,
Look at that, look at that...
Money for nothing...
And your checks for free,
Ahh, money for nothing...
And your checks for free.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Sounds like Industrial Disease! (0+ / 0-)

    "Mr. Parkinson declares
    I'm not surprised to see you here
    you've Smoker's Lung from Smoking
    Brewer's Droop from drinking Beer,
    I don't know how you came to get
    the Betty Davis Knees
    but worst of all young man
    you've got Industrial Disease"

    Dire Straits still thoroughly ROX.
