The price of oil broke a new record this morning--in dollar terms, that is. Oil is now the most expensive it's ever been--for Americans, that is. You see the dollar is barely worth anything against the ruble anymore, so we don't feel this supposed price rise here in Russia. Quite the opposite, Russia, which is the world's largest producer of oil, is only getting richer off of fat Americans who drive SUVs.
America is helpless to stop its slide into irrelevancy. It cannot control or bully oil-rich countries like Russia and OPEC. It has no choice but to bend over and pay what we make them pay. It has no control over its own economy anymore, as the Daily Telegraph writes:
The verdict is in. The Fed's emergency rate cuts in January have failed to halt the downward spiral towards a full-blown debt deflation. Much more drastic action will be needed.
The debt markets are freezing ever deeper, a full eight months into the crunch. Contagion is spreading into the safest pockets of the US credit universe.
"I never thought I would see anything like this in my life," said James Steele, an HSBC economist in New York."
That last whining bitch made me laugh out loud at my office desk. Poor James Steele, poor America! I'm trying to remember how much Americans pitied Russia after the financial crisis in August 1998. What I remember was a lot of editorialists and think-tank analysts saying it was all Russia's fault. I remember them saying that since Russia was starting to turn away from disastrous IMF free market economics, that the West should cut off all aid and teach Russia a lesson, even if it meant Russians would starve to death.
I think about that, and then I have a good deep satisfying laugh when I read a story like this, about poor American losers who now have to rob just to buy gas money. That is, they have to steal to make enough money to buy what Russia produces, because poor Americans, with their shitty dollar, cannot afford our oil:
"An Orlando tourist was robbed at gunpoint early Monday by several men who said they committed the crime for gas money, according to police."
You stupid dumbshit Americans are now like a bunch of drug bums who have to steal to buy what we Russians sell. Ha ha, fuck you all, you fat stupid dumbshits. I enjoy watching you beg for our oil. Maybe now you will be forced to get out of your fucking SUVs and walk and so you'll finally lose some of that ugly fat on your bodies. In this way, Russia is doing you a favor! (But not as much of a favor as you dumbshits do for Russia by making us richer every day!)
Spasibo amerikosam! It has never been so easy for a country to get rich so quickly as we have off of you, gullible American losers! Thank you for making my day, as I celebrate the victory of Dmitry Medvedev, no matter what you say.
