Alfred Lownstein and Carrion Fowl Capital

We got our satellite TV today, and on History International there’s “History’s Mysteries”. War Profiteer/Wall Street Weasel (ok, so the European version thereof) financier Lownstein is flying across the English Channel. End of life history is he’s reported to go to the bathroom in his private plane and disappeared Found dead later. My thought, the crew took out the trash and jettisoned it over the Channel. Good riddance to bad rubbish. So why is an 80 year old murder important? The commercials. Borrow money from this start-up upstart bank that I’ve not heard of before. Buy gold. Sell your “unwanted” gold at a smaller price of course.

Infomercials lately, and the regular 30 second spots, “Mortgages being defaulted and foreclosed, buy properties for as little as a thousand dollars” … In other words, buy back into not Predatory Capitalism… but Carrion Fowl Capitalism. There’s a big service industry boost in cleaning, appraising and repairing Foreclosed Properties. And Bill Collectors, one called me about a medical bill that wasn’t even mine. I simply had said ummm… Yeah? and he launched into this spiel where in ten seconds he had called me “buddy” 4 separate times.
But the Vulture Capitalists are touting this as a way to get rich… off the blood and similar misfortunes of Other Human Beings. Kind of like, oh, je-ne sais quoi, like the Same Kind Of Investment Strategies that got America, and the rest of the world, into this financial mess in the first damn place. People who would willingly and with full knowledge before the fact scavenge their own society, their neighbors and probably even FAMILY aren’t exactly the type of people who should be trusted with the economy of the world. Although our Friends who come regularly to defend The Noble Free Market Profiteers will sharply disagree. I’ll probably get called a Bolshevik again. By the way, that’s a Russian word meaning “of the PEOPLE” so I guess that sets our critics apart from The People.

Talk about your basic narcissistic thought patterns. Kind of like their use of the word “do-gooder” as what they perceive to be an insult.
Not knowing or caring that the exact opposite of “do-gooder” is “Evildoer”. That’s truly amusing when used by people who consider themselves to be Jews or Christians. As Isaiah and Jesus put it “hypocrites who devour the houses of Widows and for a pretense make long prayers”.
Fitting that Monsieur Alfred is memorialized by such commercials.
