Global Death Rounds

The global financial crisis is end-stage pseudo-hypo-faux-commercialism
caused by a metastatic cancer of cronyism, corruption, and tax-free, off-shore,
alias bank accounts, which have rendered the marrow of our body politic
necrotic, despotic, and idiotic. The various economic stimulus packages are
emergency, involuntary transfusions, walletectomies, and bypass operations
performed with great, ravenous, venal graft. The prognosis is guarded and
depends on plausible deniability, persuasive posturing, pathological passivity,
and perpetual deep sedation provided by the media under the
supervision of spin doctors and hypnotherapists.
