A poster named Tokyo Plumber talking about the credit crisis, stocks, and Stuckeys is just beyond belief.

It's even more unbelievable than having thousands of bankers lend trillions of dollars to millions of people that had no means of paying the money back.

Even more unbelievable than the inability of the auto and airline industries to earn profits.

Even more unbelievable than the the concept of people getting poorer despite the fact that they are repeatedly showered with more and more money.

Even more unbelievable than the Cubs's never ending losing streak.

Even more unbelievable than the fact that Cramer still has an audience.

Even more unbelievable than the fact that the U.S. Fed completely missed the largest and most fraudulent credit expansion in history.

I will say that Japan is indeed a wealthy, industialized country. Everyone in Japan has millions. Unfortunately, they all OWE billions. Let's hope we're not so fortunate.

It's downright inconceivable! We're sliding down the cliffs of insanity, battling credit of unusual size, facing margin calls in the pit of despair.
