As Billmon notes, I remain immune to criticism from the right wing corporatocracy due to my engineering-related contributions to society.
So I feel confident in avoiding their vitriol by pointing out how right-wing radio shill Hugh Hewitt continues to provide voice-overs for his advertisers as they craft ever-more elaborate Ponzi schemes (c.f. shilling for Iraqi dinars)
Avoid high interest rates. Save up to $20,000.
Because this scheme, as with all other Ponzi schemes, will eventually stall out, I predict that Spewitt will add these future voice-overs:
Ask Debt Relief from Debt Relief Corp. Inc. to your reduce your debt relief balance!
Ask Debt Relief from (Debt Relief from Debt Relief Corp. Inc.) Ltd. to your reduce your doubled-up debt relief balances!
Ask Debt Relief from those frauds expecting you to get [Debt Relief from (Debt Relief from Debt Relief Corp. Inc.)) Ltd.] Esq. to relieve you of your totally screwed-up debt relief relief!
No doubt the tool will get his take before everything crashes around him. And I have to add: our Social Security system looks utterly benign in comparison to this kind of crap.
Update: I have been linking to a few Billmon allegorical posts lately. Recommended also is the blog-haven for the old Billmon commenter crowd Moon of Alabama (which contains trenchant energy comments and peak oil threads from Jérôme à Paris of the erstwhile Rouille blog).
Update: Jérôme also writes "Brain Dead? Molybdenum and Whale Oil tell our sorry tale."
