  • The House rejects a plan to extend the payroll tax cut for another 2 months, with Republicans in that chamber demanding immediate talks with the Senate to turn it into a year-long extension. The Senate has left town, and majority leader Reid says no bargaining until the House passes the 2 month plan. (previous)  [View news story]
    Well, don't ignore me.

    I do get cranky though.

    Well, wyostocks that's a little bit off topic. And when did I say it was okay for the Dems to do it? Here's a clue..........I didn't. How predictable is that?????

    My point was to rebut your contention that the Dems control 2/3 of the government. And they don't because the Senate is hamstrung by the Republican use of the fillibuster.

    Your obviously one of the individuals I spoke about in my comment. Not only are you WRONG. You don't know shit from Shinola, simply because you think your right.

    You obviously don't need the $160. Good for you.

    Why bother?

    We should bother for those that do need $160.

    If you call a Senate hamstrung by a minority using filibuster rules to prevent almost anything from happening, control, then some who doesn't know Shit from Shinola might think your right.

    I know the difference between both Shit and Shinola. That makes you WRONG.

    Two months is better than nothing. But, two months won't fly with them because NOTHING is what the repubs (The Party of NO!) is now famous for.

    No demagoguery, just the facts. They haven't done one thing to help working Americans since they were voted into office.

    Oh, excuse me they did reaffirm "In God we Trust".

    Yep, these Repubs are working their asses off.

  • NYC Mayor Bloomberg sounds like he's had enough of the Occupy Wall Street protesters: "What they're trying to do is take away the jobs of people working in the city... If you focus for example on driving the banks out of New York City, you know those are our jobs... You can't have it both ways: If you want jobs, you've got to assist companies and give them confidence to go and hire people."  [View news story]
    We put thousands of cops on the street over the last thirty years to fight crime and the war on drugs.

    How ironic that those same cops that failed miserably in both those endeavors are now being employed to deny the citizenry "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"
    And then there's the brutality.

  • Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva calls for the ECB to end this thing with "unlimited" purchases of EU sovereign debt. "The ECB has to go beyond a narrow interpretation of its mission." This idea is not new to the punditry world, but it may be the first call for such action by a leading government official. Europe romping, Stoxx 50 +2.5%.  [View news story]
    Go Grover Norquest! What a hero.

    The citizenry won't get theirs, until the 1% own 100% of the wealth. Then we'll get crumbs from their table.

  • Reuters reports (tweet) Jon Corzine and other MF Global officials have been sued by an investor in a Manhattan federal court.

  • The Wall Street protesters have been sold a bill of goods, Peter Wallison writes: Reckless government policies, not private greed, brought about the housing bubble and resulting financial crisis. The private financial sector "cannot fairly be accused of causing the crisis when only a small minority of subprime mortgages outstanding in 2008 were the result of that private activity."  [View news story]
    Wanna know what's really nuts?
    1980XLS

    Doing the same thing, over & over again and expecting different results.

    Are we talking about the "supply side economics", aka "voodoo economics" that the NOT SO FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE" Republicans have been advocates of for 30 years?

    Your absolutely right.

    I don't know where the cut off is for being in the the 1%.

    In any event, if they aren't part of the 1% they are owned by the 1%.

  • Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf says "there's no merit" to yesterday's call by House Democrats for a Justice Department investigation into possible collusion by the big banks to raise debit card fees and other monthly charges. "The economics of the business have changed due to regulatory and legislative reform," Stumpf says, and the new debit card fees are merely "a test to see how we can best deal with these changes."
