    robert.b.,

    "Single bills, that provide solutions for single issues, less that ten pages long and readily understandable by the average 20 something..."

    Remember the concept that a million monkeys with a million typewriters in a million years would eventually write Shakespeare? Well, they wrote the ACA in only two years. Take their typewriters away from them.

  • Argentina Nationalizes An Oil Producer, Are Gold Miners Next? [View article]
    Investments even remotely connected to a country that is run by a socialist, a woman (yes, i'm a chauvinist), a Peronista and a lawyer, as is Argentina, is not going to see Buckoux's dollars.

    "GM (GM) may...stop production of...Volt for 5 weeks...doesn't stop the sedan from adding the "European Car of the Year" award"

    Kinda like President Obama getting the Nobel Peace Prize immediately after his inauguration. These "awards"(?) are like Stalin era medals. Meaningless, multiple and foreboding to the recipient.

    "You missed Pelosi's buying of Visa's IPO shares..."

    No he didn't. He ignored it because Pelosi, as a socialist, is "more equal" then others.

    "Fannie and Freddie set to get off scot free."

    That's just so wrong! Fannie Mae IS the place where some politically well connected people enriched themselves and brought on financial chaos. These people need to get a fair trial and then be thrown in jail! They caused a lot of damage to our economy and were well paid to boot. Literally, these people "robbed" the US Treasury and set fire to our economy.

    2.Franklin Raines.
    3 Jamie Goerlick
    4 Herb Moses.

    "Put another way when you reach the credit limit on your master card and they won't raise that limit it doesn't mean you are in default. What it does mean is that you must pay down some of the balance before you can borrow more from them on that card."

    But Couric, Williams, Sawyer, et al, will not report it that way. The explanation will be; "Republicans Demand Massive Cuts!", for the edification of boobs at the other end of the plasma/LCD/LED big screens. And Paul Krugman will do his usual sneer on the Sunday news shows about "austerity".

  • The Real Reason We Don't Have Jobs in the U.S.? China [View article]
    "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it." - Upton Sinclair.

    The above observation of the famous socialist is the problem. Way too many US salaries depend upon ignoring the Chinese tiger gorging itself on American jobs and our economy and then depositing its scat on our trade imbalance. And it's not going to change until the last person with a job in the US looses that job to a Chinaman.

    "One might argue that if we had kept mortgage markets from becoming global and kept government out of the housing market except for regulatory practices we wouldn't be in this mess now."

    I am one of those who agree with that argument.

    "Even the media is getting some of the numbers wrong."

    The "media" always get the numbers wrong. Financial or otherwise.

    " We need to see hiring from a business perspective."

    I don't think that there is anyone in the Obama administration, or among their "advisors", who know any of the realities of business, only theories and anecdotes. They're like virgins advising the bride about the "wedding night" under the authority that they have read books and seen movies about sex.

  • Fannie Mae's Move to Punish Strategic Defaulters [View article]
    "Step back for a moment on how dumb this is. "

    Exactly. But FNM is a "quasi" government / private corporation with the emphasis on the government side. Think of FNM to this recession as the MMS is to the Gulf oil spill. There's considerable contributory negligence and, perhaps, collusionary deception on FNM's part.

    This all seems like a dope dealer going after money owed on bad dope.

  • Afghan Lithium and Other Mineral Nonsense [View article]
    "The New York Times delivered on Monday, June 14, 2010 (Flag day), a piece of first-class political theater...."

    An indication that the NYT publisher and his editors need their lithium doses adjusted.
