Chuck Schumer is an Idiot

There's just no other way to say it.

His late, great idea? Cajole auditors into serving as his footsoldiers for a subprime bailout.

Gonzales, a liar to the last moment...

August 27, 2007 – Comments (5)

"As late as Sunday afternoon, Mr. Gonzales himself was denying through his spokesman that he was quitting. The spokesman, Brian Rohrekasse, said Sunday that he telephoned the attorney general about the reports of his imminent resignation “and he said it wasn’t true — so I don’t know what more I can say.”"  [more]

Awww. And he'd been such a stand-up guy! Telling the lies that needed to be told, shaking down enfeebled, hospitalized cabinet members, etc. He'd have made one heckuva Supreme Court Justice.

What's the big deal? So a few doctors who make decisions about what drugs are approved for use by government-sponsored healthplans are on the payroll of companies that make the drugs. What's the possible harm there?

Good on the AP for breaking this story.

David Meier on why RRGB is a mistake...

Here's what Dave had to say.

Of course, he's just some former GE rocket scientist who makes graphs over breakfast and can spot squandered capital like a hawk finds a field mouse, or Rosie finds a donut.

Hunting Scammers on Wikipedia

August 21, 2007 – Comments (0)

Using the wikipedia scanner to see who may have edited what, from where, can be interesting. There's a great list of salacious edits from wired, and among the most evil to be found is this one reportedly made from a Republican Party IP address. Vandalizing the Harry Potter page by deleting everything and giving away the ending to one of the books? Yeah, someone's a complete jackass. I'd use a stronger word, but I don't think even that one will remain. (I'll get a talking to, I suppose, but so be it.)  [more]

Behold my GENIUS!!!

August 17, 2007 – Comments (6)

I bought a lot of stocks yesterday. Today, everything's going green, green, green.

Obviously, this means I saw it coming, and proves that I am extraordinarily intelligent.

Couldn't have been a lucky break, could it?

When should you buy?

August 17, 2007 – Comments (0)

Seems yesterday may have been a good time. Today, I'm guessing, the short attention-span street will issue the "all is well" whistle. I don't think the rate cut will do much besides reassure the world that the Fed is paying attention. I'm not convinced that the Fed actually has a real lever to move monetary policy.  [more]

Idjit voters investing these days?

I'd argue the same logic prevails in the markets, these days. Maybe even at the Fed, after today's pandering rate cut.

Something I hate about CAPS

August 13, 2007 – Comments (17)

is that there's no way to add "money" to a stock when it gets cheaper. That's how I've made tons in the real world, by picking up bigger chunks of companies when they're punished for no reason.

for this reason alone, I don't think caps is very good at all at quantifying investor savvy.

2 parties, 4 states, 100% childish

August 09, 2007 – Comments (0)

The me first! primary decision made by the boneheads in Florida will soon have us gagging on a multi-year presidential campaign. The only possible good fallout is that it would keep senators out of the legislature for so long, they may not be able to cram so many home-state vote-buying pork projects into bills that don't need them.  [more]

Loan Industry Whiners Using Goon Squad to Squelch Free Speech?

August 09, 2007 – Comments (2)

Sure looks like that's what's going on at the Mortgage lender Implode-o-meter. They got a couple tips on a reportedly iffy mortgage lender that seemed to check out, posted the anonymous, claimed whistle-blower email, and when contacted by the whiny lender, offered to publish their side of the story, and even then retracted the entire thing.  [more]

At least that's the word from Georgia. (The babushka one, not the peachy one.)

The Russian response: No, they did it so they could blame it on us. (Just like the Brits and their nasty Polonium poisoning, triple-reverse conspiracies, I guess.)
