The original right-wing blog post that alerted a number of people to this story is titled "Thank You, Ann Barnhardt; We Need More People With Your Courage." The story has been picked up by fellow righties Doug Ross (who calls the subject "gutsy"), Vox Day (his title: "Jane Galt Quits the Markets"), and Glenn Beck's Blaze. I'll let Beck's crew tell you about it:


Ann Barnhardt describes herself as a an "an old-school commercial hedge broker specializing in CATTLE and GRAIN.” And she just shut down her business by delivering a passionate and chilling open letter posted on her website.

“I could no longer tell my clients that their monies and positions were safe in the futures and options markets – because they are not,” she writes. And then she unloads:
Everything changed just a few short weeks ago. A firm, led by a crony of the Obama regime, stole all of the non-margined cash held by customers of his firm. Let's not sugar-coat this or make this crime seem "complex" and "abstract" by drowning ourselves in six-dollar words and uber-technical jargon. Jon Corzine STOLE the customer cash at MF Global. Knowing Jon Corzine, and knowing the abject lawlessness and contempt for humanity of the Marxist Obama regime and its cronies, this is not really a surprise.... No informed person can continue to engage these markets, and no moral person can continue to broker or facilitate customer engagement in what is now a massive game of Russian Roulette. [Emphasis added]

What a courageous person! What an inspiration to our children! Wouldn't you want your daughter to grow up to be like this freedom fighter?

Well, yeah -- if you also want your daughter to grow up to burn Koran pages on YouTube after marking the Koran with bacon bookmarks:

In my video in which I burned the Koran, I bookmarked the various pages with strips of raw bacon....

So why did I bookmark my koran with bacon? Because it was WITTY. Because it pointed up the absurdity of the West's groveling before musloid superstitions -- specifically the U.S. Military’s rules and protocol for handling korans, namely handling with the right hand only, and preferably with the hand or hands gloved. Yeah, because the people who actually use toilet paper and DON'T wipe their butts with their bare left hands are the ones with the "dirty hands". You betcha, General Petraeus. Question: Why don’t we issue the gloves that our military are supposed to wear when handling Korans to the musloids themselves, and then they can use the gloves to wipe their butts, and then won't have to go through life with feces-encrusted metacarpi? Is it just me, or does that not make a LOT more sense? I was going to crack wise at this point about "exiting the Stone Age", but you know, I don’t think Stone Age peoples wiped their sphincters with their bare hands. I think they used vegetation. Heck, even dogs know to work the "drag".

A bit fixated on certain bodily regions there, Annie?

The video of the burning is here. TBogg has more, including a link to her YouTube channel. It doesn't feature the burning video, but it does feature informative items such as "Islamic Sexuality: A Survey of Evil" (parts 1 through 4). Cain/Barnhardt '12!

Sure, when "the markets" go wrong, it's all the fault of Marxists.

I suppose Bernie Madoff is a lawless Marxist too.

One must wonder if Barnhardt shut down her business just ahead of an investigation of some sort.

Or an involuntary commitment.

So, she specialized in the futures of 'cattle and grain!'
Cattle AND grain?

Uhm, what is the result in the future of when cattle EAT grain?


'Nuff said!

Yeah, she's in trouble, and she's got to blame the Liberals!

I tried to watch her burning Koran video and sexual mutilation video. Usually hate videos, hateful though they are, are fascinating. I couldn't get through three minutes' worth of either of hers. Am I in a particularly bad mood tonight, or is she simply a colossal bore?

Yours very crankily,
The New York Crank

I have a number of friends who are either ranchers or associated with them. Every one of them considers her "consulting" business to be little more than a scam.

I've got no problem with burning bibles. You haven't lived until you've smoked old smushed out Camel butts rolled up in bible paper, and liked it!

I have to chuckle, though, as I recall "Indian Jenny", a character in Ken Kesey's Sometimes a Great Notion (perhaps the finest piece of literature to come out of Oregon). A First American and sometime prostitute who lives in a government built shack down on the Oregon clamflats who each day takes her government issue bible out to the outhouse and faithfully reads one page (both sides) before putting it to a more practical, if not appropriate, use.

Ahh, a bullshit trader. That makes sense.
