Shock and Awe: Option A or Option B?

[ hat tip Comrade Baron Von Helmut III ]

The “Shock and Awe” campaign is well underway. Paulson and Bernanke are busy fear mongering…

Option A: If you DON'T pass this bill, you'll lose:

1. Your house
2. Your job
3. Your money
4. Your 401k
5. Your wife
6. Your dog
7. Your truck

Option B: If you DO pass this bill you will get these bonuses too:

8. Hyperinflation
9. Much much higher taxes
10. Much much higher interest rates
11. Much lower standard of living

Wow, red pill or blue pill? I dunno...I choose both. I want the bill, but I also want the opportunity to lose everything else. Is that too much to ask?

all we can hope is for at this point is the corruption to just clearly expose itself. let there be light cast upon the darkness so that all may see.

I pick option A. As long as I can negotiate to keep my dog I'm be fine.

I pick option A, at least I still can live.

Both are false options.

Choosing Option A WILL ultimately lead to Option B - ie. lose Everything.

Anyway, I thought you are firmly in the Deflationist camp. Will thIS $700Billion Bailout (cum money-printing) - are you now in the hyperinflation camp?
