Mad(e)-Off With 50 Billion & Other Financial News


AS if the economy was not totally fucked for the little guy now the big boys are getting hit too. This shit is not good....poor rich people do not give jobs to other poor people who were never rich.

The Russian oligarchs are hurting and good old Bernie Mad(e)off has absconded with some 50 billion dead us presidents from widows, assorted old folks and charities as well. Bernie was running a complicated ponzi scheme...dumb enough to tell his sons....who promptly called the SEC, Bernie soon did a perp walk that would have made Bernie Ebbers proud.

Tune in to CNBC they are all over it 18 hours a day.

Let's's a list of all the previous fucked up shit that contributed to all the fucked up shit today:

Community Reinvestment Act
Commodity Futures Modernization Act
Credit Default Swaps (created by the CFMA above)
Greedy Morgage Lenders
Greedy Homebuilders charging too much for homes not worth it
People dumb enought to believe that someone else had their back
Greedy Wall streeters and CEO's of tanking firms

Hey I wonder if GM still has the heated and cooled parking garage?

....and then they made refrigerated beach sand in Dubai. Damn. Whatever happened to good old American ingenuity? No wonder people panic when Steve Jobs coughs.

Getting Shit Done

There is a lot of shit to get done these days.

President Elect Obama needs to get the economy fixed. (We all know he had no idea that the shit would be this bad when he started campaigning 2 years ago).

US Foreign Policy needs to get fixed and give the Palestinians a fighting chance at some kind of a country where they can live, work, raise their families and prosper. Can we have a foreign policy that does not mean we invade sovereign nations because they looked at us wrong or are not doing what we think they should do.

Someone needs to put some shrink wrap and duct tape on Israel.

Can we just let GM and Chrysler go away? Ditto the shrink wrap and duct tape for Hank Paulson, is that putting the fox in charge of the henhouse or what?

Can we get shit done like they do in Dubai? Five years ago they started the palm island project now it's a reality. 30 months ago we started our plat plan with the city to get our three acres plated for 8 homes.....still no plat approval. While this bitch is not a fan of foreign ownership of armies, ports, toll roads etc., this bitch sure thinks we need some serious Dubai lessons in getting shit done.
