Henry Potter Paulson Launches Project Trojan Horse

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments

Treasury Secretary "Henry Potter" Paulson, doing his best Nero impersonation, whipped up the allies on Weimar Street with a rousing speech whose most notable accomplishment was to take video media full circle. What began with motion pictures, absent sound, yet full of meaning, having long been enhanced with audio, is now completely losing all mass appeal with voices seemingly incongruent. This, however, simply reflects the utter dullness of a wide audience unskilled in reading between the lines.

The star of "It's a Wonderful Knife" should get an Oscar Nomination. The brutality of Potter's dialog scripted as a thinly veiled genuflection to the Gods of the black magic of the marketplace (a.k.a. the City of London) might have been lost on all who mistakenly believe the holders of such high offices as U.S. Treasury Secretary serve the People in the interest of Posterity, but all with ears that hear understood the sound of financial terror soon to make Bear Stearns look like a Sunday stroll through Central Park on a sunny, summer day.

The speech that seemed to say nothing of significance was, instead, given by a modern-day Odysseus leading troops concealed in the belly of a magnificent horse. Surely, the intent is no different than what ancient warriors had slated Troy to suffer. Chaos and destruction are to reign. Trusting souls alone, oblivious of grave danger within, would accept the monstrosity of a magnificent deception without even so much as question the dream-like scene before their very eyes. Project Trojan Horse is a go, and Secretary Paulson simply has done his part to incite his Wall Street allies to battle.

It's safe to say money men like Potter lead busy lives. They certainly do not waste their time saying nothing. Despite such ridiculous financial reform as Wall Street's Odysseus' having as much hope, today, as a snowball in Hades, the "nonsense" of Paulson's message might best be seen as a bellows cleverly concealed to fan the flames. Yes, voices in the mainstream smell smoke. Yet, apparently the fog is too thick to see how complete is the imagery of Nero fiddling while Rome burns. Chaos and destruction are the aim of Project Trojan Horse.
