Me. Ok, maybe not just me. How about me…and my Posse?

Yes, dear reader, I was as surprised as you to find out that I – and people like me – are directly to blame for the current global financial crisis. That’s right. My “people” are responsible for the decline in your home’s value, the evaporation of your 401K, and anything else that has resulted from the economic decline. My Posse is the root of all your woes.

So, go ahead. Take your best shot at us. We can handle it. We are, after all, descended from Vikings and are well versed in the sacking of coastal villages.

Lest you think I’m entirely making this up, check out Brazil’s very own President Luiz Ignacio “Lula” da Silva as he expertly explains the origins of the economic downturn:

This was a crisis that was fostered and boosted by the irrational behaviour of people who were white and blue-eyed, who before the crisis they looked like they knew everything about economics, but now have demonstrated they know nothing about economics. The part of humanity that is responsible should be the part that pays for the crisis.

Video from Sky News can be seen here.

For those of you unfamiliar with Lula, he’s Brazil’s version of Barack Obama – only he actually had a political record prior to running for the Big Chair. Lula is an old school union thug riding a Latin American populist wave along with Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. His years of working the leftist trenches has taught him to play the victim card along with the very best.

So, if you happen to share my white skinned, blue-eyed genetic markers, make sure you’ve got a good place to hide next time you see the mob armed with pitchforks and torches. They’ve grown tired of AIG and you’re next.

Of course, maybe he wasn’t talking about me. Maybe Lula is blaming the whole mess on Xuxa.

    i used to tell my students that they could always blame me for all of their problems, after all, I just sat at home nights, thinking up ways to make their little teenaged existences miserable. I had no idea that I was still making things miserable for some one, somewhere. Oh well….must get back to turning on all the lights and running the dishwasher half full for earth hour….

    I never trust people with blue eyes. Not even my mother. I don’t trust people named Obama or Geithner, either. Add “Lula” to that list….Lula does the Hula…hee hee! This wave of socialist lunacy has made me punch-drunk too.

    You know, us blue-eyed folks can be quite dangerous. Maybe I should get contacts to mask my ‘evil’ color….

    How interesting, because I’ve spent time in South America, and there are blue-eyed people born and raised on that continent. His argument’s as lame as saying the Community Reinvestment Act under Clinton had nothing to do with our current situation.

    Some of these world leaders need a dose of reality.
