Those guys are *way* too cute to eat. Now the grass they’re sitting in . . . yum! Brian December 26, 2010 at 3:34 am Disaster is such a bummer. Crash makes us so grumpy. Confusion is the downer of all downer. Have we neglected simple love and adoration and awe? What’s so difficult or scientific or reasoned, or scary, that we forget utter wonder? NakedCapitalism IS naked cuz it sees what’s around us and it’s capitalism cuz it brings good stuff to see. Sufferin' Succotash December 26, 2010 at 9:10 am Looks like a bunny day to me! Or maybe a bonne idée… F. Beard December 26, 2010 at 12:32 pm That is a potent antidote. Thanks. Cujo359 December 26, 2010 at 2:53 pm Awww! readerOfTeaLeaves December 26, 2010 at 5:30 pm Today’s Frank Rich at NYT synchs with Rob Johnson’s interview of Charles Ferguson earlier this week. Eerily… A snippet: How many middle-class Americans now believe that the sky is the limit if they work hard enough? How many trust capitalism to give them a fair shake? Middle-class income started to flatten in the 1970s and has stagnated ever since. While 3M has continued to prosper, many other companies that actually make things (and at times innovative things) have been devalued, looted or destroyed by a financial industry whose biggest innovation in 20 years, in the verdict of the former Fed chairman Paul Volcker, has been the cash machine….. It’s a measure of how rapidly our economic order has shifted that nearly a quarter of the 400 wealthiest people in America on this year’s Forbes list make their fortunes from financial services, more than three times as many as in the first Forbes 400 in 1982. Many of America’s best young minds now invent derivatives… Interesting social commentary. Suzan December 26, 2010 at 11:08 pm Not I. And I write everyday on my blog to awaken people to the economic truth. Thanks for all your efforts to educate the masses. Suzan 60sradical December 26, 2010 at 11:19 pm Thanks Yves. Cute. Although, one wonders if they are on property which was caught up in securitization. Also, word is out that bankstaz are foreclosing on bunny rabbitts in southern states. Sundog December 26, 2010 at 11:46 pm How about soliciting NC readers for “antidotes of the year”? Photo, video, text, audio, animation… anything that can be shared via NC is game. Here’s a nomination. JokkeSommer, “Wingsuit proximity flying in Switzerland and Norway” (June 2010) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNqx8XZIWnI Comments are closed. Tip Jar Please Donate or Subscribe!
