  • Obama Talks Tough to Bankers [View article]
    I fully expect this latest from Obama will end up like other things he's said. He'll do what his bosses tell him to do and the faithful will continue to worship. Political theater. Ain't it grand.

  • Social Security Trust Fund 2009: Economy Has Crippled the Fund, Major Overhaul Now Needed [View article]
    <i>Obama doesnt get it. Why is Democrats love to spend our tax payers money. They always find a way to justify it. they keep sending money out to countries that have corrupt govt.'s. whose people see very little of it. A drop in the bucket.</i>

    As Obama is no more than GWB's third term one would think you'd be pleased. All that money transfered fro the taxpayers to the banksters.

    <i>Now, they will send our youth to fight in Afghanistan , many wont come back alive. Billions $$$$ will be wasted there too.</i>

    Yes and yes.

    <i>Why do we have to kiss so much A...s?</i>

    Duhmerican'ts are going to have to get better at this.

    <i>Why dont we just throw a Bomb in Yemen where the Terrorist Training camps are.?</i>

    Making friends and influencing people Duhmerican't style.

    <i>Why do we have to treat them nice, when they hate us, and wont do the same for us.
    For them, the best American ,is a dead American.</i>

    Duhmerica has allot to atone for.

    Once the precedent that money anyone paid into SS shouldn't be paid because of this or that criteria is established where will it end? The unintended consequences are too onerous to even consider.

    Spartacus is trying to appeal to our warm cuddly sides during this holiday period in an attempt to elicit sympathy for those poor maligned insurance companies who richly deserve the transfer of our wealth to their accounts. Thank you Spartacus!

  • British Airways (BAIRY.PK -2.7%) pursues an injunction to keep its cabin crew from implementing a 12-day holiday strike, saying ballot irregularities make the strike invalid.  [View news story]
    What part of 92% didn't they understand? Undoubtedly we'll see a Frank Lorenzo pulled again. This injunction is a head fake.
