    The Govt games the inflation figures so they don't have to increase social security payments to seniors.

  • Congressmen Weiner and Waxman Set Gold Hearing [View article]
    None of this is about gold; it is about the gold companies advertising on Limbaugh, beck, Levin etc. It is about censorship. Liberals don't like people talking back to them or resisting their stupid legislation. They see Nov coming and know they will be dropping like leaves after the next election.

  • Soros Attacks Germany's Hair-Shirt Politics [View article]
    It might be nice if Soros has made a huge bet that has gone horribly wrong. Then he would have less money to use to bankroll the far left politicians he favors.

  • The world’s governments suddenly seem to have found religion about curbing spending, bringing howls from a Keynesian camp of economists such as Paul Krugman who believe policymakers are taking away stimulus too soon - well before the global economic recovery can sustain itself.  [View news story]
    Yes, the impossible dream - govt living within it's means!

  • A new report says BP (BP) may have decided that "a line has to be drawn" in covering costs related to the Gulf oil spill. The company can pay for the cleanup and more, but it's not going to provide restitution to the entire $2.2T Gulf economy, as was mentioned at a Senate hearing today.  [View news story]
    Sometimes it appears that Salazar, Gibbs, Holder etc are having a contest to see who can make the dumbest comment. Sadly they are all succeeding brilliantly.

    Any law proposed by Al Franken is sure to be a disaster.

  • Worst Employment Reports and Worst Reactions to Employment Reports [View article]
    I guess the Messiah got pretty excited when he saw 20K private sector jobs created so he leaked what he thought was a good report in one of his speeches weds. Wall Street should have considered the source of the inside tidbit when they took the market higher weds. Of course the insiders in the White House might have gone short weds - nothing would surprise me.

  • The failure of TierOne Bank in Lincoln, Neb., means an estimated $297.8M hit to the FDIC's Deposit Insurance Fund. Along with closings in Mississippi and Illinois, that makes 81 failed institutions in 2010.  [View news story]
    Many of this years bank failures were in states like Fl, Nv, Ca and Ga where the housing market was red hot but a surprising number have been in Il. Perhaps the rot in Illinois extend beyond politics.

  • Contagion Risks Spread to Spanish Banks [View article]
    I had to chuckle at the photo in IBD that showed Greek leftists who were on the dole or employed by the Greek govt attacking the police over govt imposed "austerity measures". Sort of like watching a bunch of three year olds burn down the nursery school because the field trip to the toy store was cancelled.

  • Americans Now Back to Overconsumption Norm [View article]
    In fairly short order the United States Government will remove the difficult decision to spend or save from the consumer. They will confiscate it through higher taxes and spend it for him or her.

  • Falklands Oil: High Stakes in the South Atlantic [View article]
    When you are a politician in deep doodoo bring the circus to town to distract the restless natives. If Argentina gets fiesty they will get slapped down like they did before and a bunch of people will die for nothing. It is a shame the citizens of Argentina can't vote for a better group of politicians.

  • Healthcare 'Reform': Here We Go Again [View article]
    I wonder how much of the money that we pay for health care is inflated because the government and insurance companies and all of their bs paperwork and claim negotiations involved. I can't help but think we would be better off with medical savings accounts and /or paygo and catastrophic insurance. Limiting lawsuits would also help with costs. My dentist gives me a discount because I don't have dental insurance which drives up his costs with absolutely no benefit to me.

  • The U.S. Will 'Find' Another 825,000 Unemployed This Friday [View article]
    I am a commercial real estate broker. Small business leasing is deader than a doornail. People are not optimistic and therefore not starting new businesses or expanding existing ones. Why take risks if Owebama is going to confiscate the rewards? The new left running this country doesn't begin to understand economics or how the private sector works.
