  1. Warren Buffett on the economy and the bailout

    I won't be surprised if GE goes down the tubes within 6 months. Of course another bailout like that would greatly expand the USSA governments' business portfolio.
  2. GRIM!!!

    To a long time short seller of stocks like myself, the pile driver that happened today was heady stuff. If last week was nirvana , this week maybe I'll get my 72 virgins. The house of cards that all the bullshit has keep aloft for so long is finally collapsing under the weight of the all the chickens coming home to roost. The sooner the government tackles the real problems instead of dicking around trying to police the world and acting as if the deficit, debt and 24/7/365 dollaro printing doesn't matter, the sooner you can get back on track. If getting back on track is still an option. As long as special interest lobby groups and the military-industrial complex pull the strings of the puppets in office, the downward spiral will accelerate. Some have poo poo'd my previous doom and gloom.I've been taking action since I saw that CROX, the company making those gay clogs was worth twice what GE stock was back a year ago. Me, I'm riding this down wave until there isn't any more to get and loving every minute of it until they outlaw short selling and selling of any stocks. In the immortal words of your current leader, "Bring it on".
  3. Economic News

    They won't be smiling when the next few rescue packages need to be dealt with in the near future. You see, the patient is dead and they are using a band to revive him.
  4. What are you listening too?

    My band, we just finished an EP http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rude-City-Riot/11357498385 with a dozen more tracks to go. Spray away....
  5. The Big Question

    Look on the brightside, at least in the future there will be no unemployed Americans as the state controlled coal mines will always need more bodies. Maybe China will even permit a transfer of all the able bodied men aged 13-40 to work in their coal mines until their US bonds are paid off.
  6. Palin Witchcraft Video

    Look everyone knows,if there's no chicken blood or eye of newt it's not real witchcraft. She is 100% ready to become prez after her McCain voodoo doll does it's work. Just look at her calm demeanor with that raving lunatic behind her. That's the mark of a true leader.
  7. This ain't your Grampas' Depression...

    Some random thoughts... The banking system house of cards is about to implode. Society is comprehensively bankrupt and is defaulting on loans at record rates. When there is no more money to loan, from non existent companies, to no more credit worthy people, the economy will stop. GM stock is just a short time away from reaching $0.00. Peoples savings, retirement funds are disappearing in a stock market that just ran out of smoke and mirrors. Oil prices are making new highs everyday. The spin off effects will touch all aspects of everyday life. Less money for "luxuries" and necessitities. Houses are now worth less than the mortgages owed in some areas. Manufacturing has moved offshore. Nothing is made in the USA anymore. The workforce has been reduced to service industry drones. Millions of family farms and their knowledge have disappeared, replaced by multinational agri business' that have just started to twist the knife. Recent floods in Iowa will have a big effect on grain prices. Surburban sprawl has consumed the small towns and taken the local culture away. The airlines are going to merge and consolidate or go under until there are none left. Infrastructure is crumbling, education is getting cutback. The fiasco in Iraq continues and will soon probably spread to Iran. It's like watching a slow motion train wreck....
  8. This ain't your Grampas' Depression...

    "But other than that, how did you like the play Mrs Lincoln?" She suffered from severe clinical depression--just like FearAndGreed. Reality has a habit of blinding stupid folk...
  9. Salute, Comrades to the new USSA!

    With scant months left in the term of the secret communist agent Bush, he has with help from the treasury, sequestered ownership of half of all private homes in the United Socialist States of Amerika with nary a shot fired. His brilliant campaign to create and maintain the repressive Patriot Act is sure to let the proper authorities keep an eye on troublesome people for many years to come. Heir apparents McCain/Palin fondly embrace this view of the future. So comrades, write your congressman for free bread, cheese and beer and let the state provide for you. Salute. wpKRd2xQeq8
  10. The Bush Response

    This is a message from your government: We will prop up any failing institution. We will stop free market practices that are deemed detrimental to the state. The markets especially bank stocks, will rise substantially tomorrow. That is all, over and out.
  11. Salute, Comrades to the new USSA!

    Them UK limey commies just banned short selling , how long will the USSA commies wait to do it, as the end of the free market system is upon us? I wonder if the line up for bread and cheese at the State Store is very long today?
  12. if you like cute-chicks w/ guns

    You guys should think a bit deeper on the issue of Israeli state terrorism and murder.
  13. Salute, Comrades to the new USSA!

  14. The Bush Response

    whats really going on the the white house/fed meetings http://www.break.com/index/guy-busts-light-bulb-on-face.html
  15. This ain't your Grampas' Depression...

    My Schadenfreude is just starting to get satisfied after Lehman today AIG Wednesday and WaMu soon.
  16. The Foreign Policy Difference

    1) He changed his mind; His view are very similar to McCain's now 2) Defeat AlQueda? Why didn't we think of that? 3) Stabilize Afghanistan. Now were talking. How. I knew it , ah knew it. Judging from the # of troops deployed, Osamas bin hiding in Germany all these years! http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/deploy.htm
  17. Finally. God Defined.

    Do you and your war mongering buddies chant this mantra when you're gunning down innocent Iraqi women and children too? Or do they even give the typing pool staff guns anymore?
  18. The Foreign Policy Difference

    In the not too distant future when you're a bankrupt nation, the powers that be will just decide the only way out will be to wage war with the largest of your foreign debt holders. Declare the accounts balanced and continue to force feed you non stop sports and reality TV.

  20. Finally. God Defined.

    Dave are you sure you can handle the truth? The greatest fairy tale ever told is only for the weakminded and lost type who are desperately searching for something to save them from the pain/worry/hopelessness that their life situations throw them into. "Oh please god save me from (fill in the blank)" seems like such a cop out for not wanting to take responsibility for your own actions. As far as eternal life goes buddism seems the best way. You get to live many lives and are not under the rules of a omnipotent being, wiling away infinite days surrounded by do-gooding, funless hypocrites. check out this reincarnation forecast for your next life http://www.reincarnationstation.com/ Be seein' ya, FnG
  21. President Palin? WTF?

    Another 4 years with him or Palin and this is all you're going to get.
  22. Note to self:

    Yes you are right to think that McSames bible thumper is much more grounded in reality, http://thinkprogress.org/2008/04/23/hagee-katrina-mccain/
  23. Frannie and Freddie

    Not to worry, King W. will make the correct decisions just as he has done the past 7 years. Just because Big Bro is involved in bailing out the largest corporate failures of all time and a dozen banks have been taken over as well(WaMu is next), doesn't mean the economy isn't strong. I mean, like really, the FDIC just guaranteed your money is safe, what more do you want http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article6108.html. And you can always just print more money... So what if the government owns the title to 1/2 the houses in the country with that move. Now get back to watching American Idol, eating your gruel and quit thinking.
  24. Tricouni / Cloudburst road has been blocked by a rock slide about 2.5 km up from the turn off from Squamish main road. Looked very fresh, I wonder if anybody is up there on this long weekend.
  25. President Palin? WTF?

    A quick peruse through youtube reveals "The Killa from Wasila" is on gods mission. This broad is so scary she makes W. look like a boy scout. QG1vPYbRB7k&NR=1
