Not a dupe, but this movie has been on here before.
I'm all for American animated features having more mature themes, but this isn't what I had in mind.
Oh, don't worry. At its core, it's more infantile than a show called "My Little Pony Preemies."

Yeah, they're taking our money, our homes, and our freedom!
Wait, they're talking about government? Huh. I guess BoA and Barclays just skipped over their radar.
And metals can't lose their value, eh? Amazing. We have a bubble-proof investment opportunity that can't possibly lose, can't be gamed, counterfeited, or in any way manipulated? Awesome. I hope they wrote a paper or something.

This is some of the worst voice acting I have ever heard, and I've spent most of my life watching anime.

This new Rock Star game is intriguing, I always wondered what it would be like to play AS the hookers.

Ahh. Grove Street.

Can a non-libertarian give me the low-down on this gold standard vs. fiat shit?
Billy the Poet
Libertarians hate "fiat" currency because they say it creates a disinclination to virtuous behavior: inflation benefits debtors and punishes savers. Their colossal and obvious mistake is that currency based in mineral wealth can swing in value many times the inflation rate and governments can do nothing about it but find some more gold. It's market worship at it's most empty-headed.
Billy the Poet
Fuck, wrong "its"! I hate myself more than Hitler!
I don't think Hitler hates you, Billy.
I always assumed Libertarians couldn't think abstractly, so money as data is mysterious and evil, while shiny chunks of something found in the ground, while just as arbitrary to call it "money," gives them something to clutch to like an infant on a teet.
As if in Lydia 2700 years ago they made coins out of rare metals because they knew the data banking system would mean the Persians won.
I read a book as a small child about a young boy who caught a leprechaun that granted him x amount of wishes. The big thing he wished for was "to have all the money in the word" so it was granted and he was given all the money in the world. Not enough money equal to the sum of all money in the whole world but literally all the money in the world. So all the money ended up in his back yard and nobody had cash. The government thought they were smart and printed a new type of currency, one that they thought wouldn't be corrupted by the wish but they were wrong and soon all of the currency with a silly name ended up at the feet of the young protagonist.
I cant remember how the story ended but this seems to be pretty appropriate here.
Practically, it's a choice between the Federal Reserve setting monetary policy or some transnational mining companies.
Also: more or less what Billy said. Gold price never goes down? Damn, to live in that dream world...
Hookers and blow, Mother Puncher. Hookers and blow.
I think someone should mention bitcoins because it hasn't been done yet. So... bitcoins, then.
These scraps of paper are worthless, so let's put our trust in shiny rocks dug out of the ground!

If only I had voted for Ron Paul!

You know, Foodfight! wasn't THAT bad in hindsight.
