GM, Ford, and Chrysler Bailout is a MUST!

Friday, November 14th, 2008

How is it that our government has no problem stuffing $80 Billion dollars down the throat of AIG executives as they party it up but has a problem with offering a loan to a manufacturing industry inter connected with hundreds if not thousands of other manufacturing jobs and industries all ...

The Garden Of Greed: Smoke & Mirrors & Fallen Apples

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

In recent days, a number of parallel thoughts have led me to perpendicular roadblocks. Generally speaking, I'm struggling to identify the means to unmask the many misdirections being put forth in order to distract us from reality. If I'm to succeed, there are a number of problems to address. One, ...

Quote of the Day

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

We “elect” a Texas oil man as President, and then the price of gas triples. We “elect” the head of Halliburton as Vice President, and then we are mired in a war longer than World War II, with no end in sight. We see the head of the largest investment bank ...

A Show of Hands

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Alright, folks.  Let's get a show of hands. How many of you in the past two weeks read an article about our economy? Five articles? Ten? How many have been reading for months? Years? This is what is making me downright irritable of late. Watching CNN and PBS last night, and ...

Bailout Bites the Dust, But Not in a Good Way

Monday, September 29th, 2008

The "I'm the real leader" antics are done and Bailout 2.0 is on the trash heap. In the wake of the failure there's plenty of rancor and posturing, but it misses the point. No doubt there's blame aplenty - politicians, CEOs, the voters, investors, and the people who borrowed much ...

Never Misunderestimate the Dipshittery of the American Voter

Friday, September 26th, 2008

In light of the economic chaos of the past few days, I'm going to say something I thought would never pass my lips - John McCain is an even bigger asshat than George Bush. For a much vaunted war hero who claims to put country before political preening, there's a hell ...

Cold Feet

"If we pass this bill as they proposed it, we'll do an incredible disservice to the American people," DeFazio said in a fiery speech on the House floor. "What if it doesn't work? You have the execs come out whole and they scoot the money offshore. What's the next step?" ...

Alms for the Rich?

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Could it be there's a tiny bit of backbone showing in Congress and smallest touch of gray matter showing in the electorate? Low and behold, after eight years voters finally figured out that Republicans are as financially responsible as a drunk frat boy in a stripper joint with a no-limit gold ...

I Will NOT Pay Your Piper, Willumstad

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

I'm too irate at the moment to give you my normal Econ 101 take on the world, but I am going to paste two quotes from a Reuters article so we can be incensed together. First, this gem. A $700 billion fund would come on top of other steps already taken ...

Where’s My Bailout?

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

I'll keep this short and sweet because I'm to busy trying to pay off my bit of the trillion dollar rescue  plan to wax poetic, but I just have to ask Where is my bailout? I work hard, I manage my money correctly, I pay my taxes on time every ...
