Flip It: Let’s Give the $1 Trillion to Everyone BUT Those Guys on Wall Street

September 22, 2008 – Comments (1)

By Cody Willard

So the Republicans and Democrats in power whose policies have created and developed this bubble that’s now popping on Wall Street and under homeowners now want to take an outright $1 trillion of your savings and borrowings and give it straight up to those firms who took enough bad risk that they’re about to go bankrupt because they say if they don’t you’ll be broke and never be able to tap any capital again.  [more]

I have been here since pretty much December 2007, and have run quite the extremes when it comes to rankings.  I have been as low as 0.09, and as high as 99.92 (50th).  Currently I think it is in the 60s.  Here's where things are interesting, in my opinion.  [more]

First, I ended LEH today since the 7-day waiting period (sounds like I'm buying a gun) ended this morning.  The pick ended, but hours later, I still have 1 pending pick, preventing me from picking another stock.  No biggie, but something similar happened last week, too.  [more]

As we age, we tend to end up seeing more of the medical establishment.
For example, my internist referred me to a female urologist.
I saw her yesterday and she is gorgeous.
She's beautiful; big boobs, great figure and unbelievably sexy.
She told me that I have to stop masturbating.
I asked her why and she said, "Because I'm trying to examine you."

[I can't say I agree with this guy, but considering the amount of bearish blogs posted here, it's nice to get an argument from the other side for a change.]   [more]
