“Amazingly, the stock market continued to soar, and the television over the FrontPoint trading desks emitted a ceaselessly bullish signal. ‘We turned off CNBC,’ said Danny Moses. ‘It became very frustrating that they weren’t in touch with reality anymore. If something negative happened, they’d spin it positive. If something positive happened, they’d blow it out of proportion. It alters your mind. You can’t be clouded with shit like that.'”

–Michael Lewis, from “The Big Short” (2010).

    @ Holy stuff

    Comedy writers are taking over the state legislature – as usual.

    In Florida and in State Government:

    “STATE MOTTO SOUGHT FOR SCHOOLS: The House PreK-12 Innovation Subcommittee will take up a bill (HB 839), filed by Rep. Kimberly Daniels, D-Jacksonville, and Rep. Mel Ponder, R-Destin, that would require schools to display the state motto, “In God We Trust.” (Tuesday, 9 a.m., 306 House Office Building, the Capitol.)”

    I asked God about this one – and she asked me to tell y’all to quit taking her name in vain.

    “‘HEALTHY MARRIAGE’ GUIDE GETS AIRING: The House Civil Justice & Claims Subcommittee will consider a proposal (HB 1323), filed by Rep. Clay Yarborough, R-Jacksonville, and Rep. Danny Burgess, R-Zephyrhills, that would lead to the creation of a “Florida Guide to a Healthy Marriage.” (Tuesday, 3:30 p.m., 404 House Office Building, the Capitol.)”

    Remember kids – always get a prenup – and don’t do anything donald trump (3 wives), rush limbaugh (4 wives), newt gingrich (3 wives), or other Republican role models wouldn’t do.
