Scientists have discovered mental condition that inhibits people from orienting themselves

09/30/08
It's where?

Scientists have discovered that there is a condition that makes it difficult for a portion of the population to orient themselves in an environment (know where they are and where they need to go). They have isolated it to the absense of a Y chromosome and believe that as much as 50% of the population could be affected.

Why Bankruptcy is better than Bailout

09/30/08
It is better to rip the band aid off than to slowly pull...

By now, you have all heard that the bailout was defeated (despite my congressman's voting for it - he lost my vote in November). Here is an interesting article on why bankruptcy is better than bailout written by one of the 200 166 economists who opposed the bailout in the first place.

Excerpt:

The obvious alternative to a bailout is letting troubled financial institutions declare bankruptcy. Bankruptcy means that shareholders typically get wiped out and the creditors own the company.

Bankruptcy does not mean the company disappears; it is just owned by someone new (as has occurred with several airlines). Bankruptcy punishes those who took excessive risks while preserving those aspects of a businesses that remain profitable.

Voting on the Bailout

09/29/08
Wait...who are we supposed to be helping?

Well, the powers that be have come to a consensus and have proposed the updated version of the bailout. I think that it would be a lot better for the economy to FORCE the mortgage companies to restructure many of their shitty loans and use that $700,000,000,000 to fund it. Of course, the new proposal is $250,000,000,000 at a time.

No matter what your opinion of the bailout is, you better AT LEAST call your local representative. You probably should also call your 2 Senators and tell them what you think. I definately say call your congressman because he is up for re-election and will listen to his/her constituents. No matter what happens, the economy is going to suffer further and if they vote against what their voters want, they are going to get voted out.

Also, you might want to try calling both the local office AND the washington office. Why? Well...I tried calling my Senators' DC offices today. Arlen Specter's line is busy. Robert Casey's mailbox is full. I was able to contact them at the local office. But if you call AND get through on both lines, you will let your voice be heard twice.

Even more boring financial mumbo jumbo about the bailout

09/25/08
Bend over and take it, taxpayers!

See the rest of this comic analogy on the raping of the taxpayer current financial mess we are in. Remember that we are talking about $700,000,000,000. The zeroes put it in perspective.

You might also want to watch this clip of Ron Paul on Faux News. Although he is a bit of a nut when it comes to foreign policy, I have yet to see him be wrong on the economy.

25 Quotes on the Bailout of all Bailouts

09/24/08
Bail out Sirius XM!

— US Senator Jim DeMint - South Carolina (R)

Call your Congressman/Senator and tell them what you think about the $700 billion bailout

09/24/08
Capitalism or Socialism?

No matter what you think, you should call your local Congressman and your state's two Senators and tell them what you think.

Contact information for the US Senate.
Contact information for the US House of Representatives.

Do yourself a favor and only call YOUR Senators and your ONE Congressman. Don't call Ron Paul unless you live in his district in Texas. Don't call Obama unless you live in Illinois.

Now...for my opinion:

You know what will happen if we spend the $700,000,000,000 to buy all those worthless mortgages? Supposedly credit will be easier to get. But wasn't that the problem in the first place? Wasn't the problem that people were taking out mortages on houses that they couldn't afford, so they could live above their means? You know what? Maybe we should only take out credit when we are capable of paying it back.

Do you really think that THIS bailout will be the one that works? We have already spent $300,000,000,000 on bailing out AIG and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. If we do this, we will have spent...now get ready for it: $1,000,000,000,000 to fix this fucked up economy. Oh, by the way...when we print this money to buy those worthless mortgages from Wall Street, you know what that does to your savings? It devalues it. Alluva sudden, $1 today is worth $0.90 tomorrow. If you earn $30 in interest at 5% in a year, you still are effectively losing $30 (at 10% inflation you gain $30, lose $60).

And what happens if we don't do this bailout. They say that people will lose jobs. They say the economy will stop working. They say that companies won't be able to get everyday loans to keep their businesses running (does a healthy business need everyday loans to make payroll?). They say that mortgages will be more expensive unless you have perfect credit. Should we just trust them? What ever happened to those Weapons of Mass Destruction, anyway?

When I call my Senators and Congressman tomorrow, I will let them know (only my Congressman is up for re-election), that if they vote for this bailout, they will be losing my vote for them.

But if they were to include Sirius XM in their bailout, I will forgive them and give them my vote back.

Mount Olive Police shoot dangerous Yellow Lab

09/22/08
Yeah...looks like a real killer

A unknown Mount Olive, NJ Police Officer shot a yellow lab twice with his shotgun because it was agressive. He didn't call Wayne County Animal Control. He ignored the pleas of the next door neighbor that the dog wouldn't hurt anyone. Just bang.

Calls to the Mount Olive Police Department asking for the name of the shooter weren't returned.

In Las Vegas if you're caught putting up graffiti, there are two consequences. If you're under 18, your parents will pay the fine. If you're over 18, you lose your driver's license for two years. Nice.
