Things "I'm All Set" With

At my absolute snottiest moments, I will decline to hear the rest of someone’s story or take a bite of someone’s bizarre sandwich with a nonchalant “I’m all set”.  It’s my inner 13-year-old girl talking, what can I say?

There are a number of things going on right now that I’m All Set with.  You guys are probably feeling the same way on some of them…

Bashing BP:  I know, I know, they really are the absolute worst company on earth – except for Chevron, Texaco, Citgo, Gazprom, China Petro, Petrobras etc.  They all suck, BP just got whacked with the unlucky stick this time.  And no, the irony of BP having spent hundreds of millions on those ridiculous branding commercials to tell us how friggin’ Green they are is not lost on me.  Now we must root for them to fix their horrible mess already.

I’m all set on the BP bashing.

Financial Regulation:  When will people understand that the ink doesn’t even have to dry for the lawyers and bankers to begin combing through the rules and regs for the new soft spot to exploit.  Picture the velociraptors in Jurassic Park who are contained in that room – until they learn to actually turn doorknobs with their claws!  And now picture them in Turnbull & Asser suits flogging their first year associates late into the night to find a way for the well-connected to get even more well-connected.  Make whatever rules you want, you’ll never keep up with the banking elite.  Get over it. 

I’m all set on finreg.

The Real Housewives of ____ :  Just die already.

I’m all set on Real Housewives.

The Gold Debate:  For years I’m listening to the same inane arguments back and forth about the edibility of the metal, the burying of the metal and paying someone to guard it, the hoarding of it, the Austin Powers jokes, the Schiff interviews, the pawn your gold commercials, the buy our US government gold coins that have nothing to do with the US government commercials, the fiat currency whining, the barbarous relic meme, the gold price charts that date back to Noah’s f***ing Ark, the charts that denominate the price of gold in Minneapolis parking tickets, the big breakout that never happens, the paper gold versus physical gold argument, the gold-is-a-ponzi meme, the gold-is-a-bubble meme, and on and on.

I’m all set on gold.

OK, I feel better now.
