The borwn stuff is about to hit the fan.

by Faramarz_Fateh

Usually in the mornings when I wake up, I listen to CNBC or another financial TV channel as while getting ready for the day. Every day for the past several days, a CEO of a major financial company has resigned. Its true that these resignations or replacements are generally due to pressure from Wall street for poor performance of the stock.

Historically however, the CEOs jump ship when they know shit will be hitting the fan. They get their compensation packages cashed and go on long vacation until they can ride the "good times" wave as head of another company and take credit for events that don't have anything to do with them per se.

And for those of us living in the U.S. the combination of the supply of the brown stuff, its proximity to the fan and the size and speed of the fan is baaaad news this time. Why you ask?

A lot of people in the know say that the sub prime mortgage crisis is at least twice as big as the S&L crisis of the 1980s. The figure of $600B is said to be LESS than half of the actual number. Combine this with the U.S. budget deficit resulting from the Iraq war, unrest in Pakistan and Turkey and the impending attack on Iran, need I say more?

Besides gasoline topping $4 a gallon first quarter of next year, home loan interest rates at 7%, over 1,500 residential forclosures a day, unemployment inching up about a %, we will be facing "Iranians go home" slogans and bumper stickers resembling the time when the hostages were taken in Iran.

To tell you the truth, I am neither ready for $4 a gallon gas nor attitude from bunch of koon nashosteh Americans in pickup trucks. How about you?

To inquire about the size of my penis, I refer you to your mother! I am sure, she will be able to elaborate on that for you!


A True Iranian American uses the word "sand nigger" ?! Really!

Dear Mr. "True Iranian-American",

It is unfortunate that your IQ is about the same size as your penis and therefore you do not understand relatively simple English statements. I wish there was something like Viagra to give a boost to your brain.

If you call yourself a "True Iranian American", how could you use a word such as sand nigger? I am doubtful that you are Iranian. Or you are that idiot who writes under pen name issa hajizadeh.

As I have said in many of my blogs before, a good % of Americans are very decent human beings. Majority of the best people on earth in terms of generousity are also Americans; ala Doctors Without Borders.

I call the Americans who can't find the middle east, much less Iran on the world map koon nashoseth. People who advocate bombing Iran and any other country who is not in lock step with the U.S.A.

Althought its tough for someone with your limited intelligence, read the blogs on here 4, 5 or more times to really understand the meaning before responding.

Yours truely,



I second that motion

I agree with "True Iranian-American" comments.

You find a good example of "namak nashnas" in FF where a society allows him to grow and be prosperous enough that he has time, every morning, to listen to CNBC and count his money in the bank and at the end of the day, he bites the hand that feeds him. Shameless.


Hey FF:

You are an Iranian-American, right? Why do you talk that way ("bunch of koon nashosteh Americans") about Americans who have given you freedom, shelter, and a job so you can put food on the table for your family?

I assume you still use aftabeh, the Iranian contribution to the world, and would you prefer to live in the Islamic Republic!? I don't think any real American would give a rat's ass if you departed! You are a typical Iranian who lives in America but is anything but American?

Maybe some of that brown stuff should be sprayed on that sand**gger face of yours! I assume it would be an improvement on you!?



lots of brown stuff

It's awful, really. America is a fantastic, rich country and the leaders have been screwing it up, especially the economy. Spending all the money on wars, stressing out the population, especially the young population with fear fear fear. It's the same tactic as in Iran and it is counterproductive and damages morale. Your observation has truth to it.

Mr Fateh's observation is worth reading. I do not live in US, but if I were, I would be very scared. Is this really the case?. Is this debt to outside sources or is it an internal debt?.

I also find it hard to see why Iranians allow to be insulted by a bunch of red neck idiots, I am sure this does not apply to those living in the blue states, but may be some of the ones who live in the red states and srious supporters of G.W.B. I think the problem should be partially dealth by the educated Americans.

I seriously suggest a public enquiry which results in legislations defending people against such abuse.


Should we go all bonds?

To FF, It will be tough. We've kept our heads up very well. We will do it again. We are not our government. We are for American idea and Iran and its culture not for backward and savage mullahs and their religion.
