We have a financial system in severe crisis where the loans are defaulting at record rates and the collateral is crashing in value. 

We have a Presidential candidate stupid enough to pick a VP nominee who can't even make a rational decision concerning the safety of her own unborn child and others......

Who in the hell would get on a a 12 hour COMMERCIAL plane flight KNOWING she was ALREADY in LABOR with a HIGH RISK pregnency disregarding the safety of her unborn child, herself, and the passengers on the plane if an emergency landing was required????

And she calls herself pro life??????

An announcement from the state said that Palin's "labor began (Thursday) while she was in Texas at the governor's energy conference, where she gave the keynote luncheon address, but let up enough for her to travel on Alaska Airlines back to Alaska in time to deliver her second son."

You think she has something against Texans???

Now, Americans are being kept in the dark about a possible attack on Iran while the rest of the world is preparing.....

Report Says 5 U.S. Carrier Groups Are in the Persian Gulf or Are Headed Toward It.

http://www.garynorth.com/public/3927.cfm

Third-party sources report that French ships, along with British ships, are accompanying the Theodore Roosevelt to the Gulf. This would indicate a joint military venture.

THE BLACKOUT

This is receiving no coverage by the media of the Western nations. It is a non-event. Yet if I know about it, and if I have been able to verify three-fifths of the story by official sources, then there is no question in my mind that any of the major news media that wanted to assign one lone individual to tracing down the details of this story would be able to do this without a great deal of difficulty. Yet the media have remained absolutely silent about this.

This sounds fishy to me. It sounds as though there is a coordinated effort among Western owners of the media to make certain that the voters are kept in the dark.

Why should this story not be front-page news? Two very good reasons are the fragility of the economy with oil under $130 a barrel, and what could happen if it goes to $400. Nobody wants to trigger bank runs. The existence of an armada of this size raises an obvious question: Against which nation in the Persian Gulf is such an armada to be used? The answer is obvious: Iran.

Dutch intel: US to strike Iran in coming weeks

Holland's military intelligence service (AIVD) recently suspended an intelligence operation aimed at infiltrating and sabotaging the Iranian weapon manufacturing industry following estimates that the United States plans to attack the Islamic republic in the coming weeks, according to a report by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, quoted by media worldwide Monday.

Knowledgeable sources told the Dutch newspaper that a senior agent was recently removed from the country "due to the belief that the US is about to make a decision within weeks on a strike in Iran using unmanned aircraft."

Does our press thinks we are too stupid to know this...don't they understand us CAPs players might want to adjust our Red and Green thumbs????

Do you think Russia is aware of this?????

MOSCOW, September 1 (RIA Novosti) - Russia may proceed with plans to sell advanced S-300 air defense systems to Iran under a secret contract believed to have been signed in 2005, a Russian analyst said on Monday.

Commenting on an article in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper saying Russia is using the plans as a bargaining chip in its standoff with America, Ruslan Pukhov, director of Moscow-based Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, said: "In the current situation, when the U.S. and the West in general are stubbornly gearing toward a confrontation with Russia after the events in South Ossetia, the implementation of a lucrative contract on the deliveries of S-300 [air defense systems] to Iran looks like a logical step."

http://en.rian.ru/russia/20080901/116446535.html

Do you think Iran would tell us if they had the missles?????

Iran denied on Monday it had bought Russia's advanced S-300 anti-aircraft missile system, after Israeli defense sources said the Islamic Republic could receive a delivery of the weapons by the end of the year.

Western and Israeli experts have said that if Tehran acquired the S-300 missile batteries it would become much more difficult for Israel or the United States to carry out a possible attack on Iran's nuclear facilites.

So WTF, if we can't hit Iran....let's go at it in the Black Sea.....

A build-up of naval forces is underway in the Black Sea, involving both NATO and Russian ships. The provocative actions by the US-lead military coalition create the danger of a clash with potentially catastrophic consequences.

Late last week, General Anatoly Nogovitsyn, deputy chief of the Russian military’s general staff, claimed that 10 NATO warships were in the Black Sea and that more were on the way.

So which is it, the worst economic crisis in 60 years, I am pro life but I get on a 12 hour commercial flight after labor begins with a high risk pregnancy instead of going to a hospital minutes away, the economy is getting better but GDP is shrinking after discounting one time government spending boost creating the largest government deficit in American History, we are not going to attack Iran but sending the largest fleet of carriers to the Gulf since the commencement of the Iraq War while the rest of the world seems to know this but we don't, our banking system is sound but the FDIC is needs more money after just ten bank failures and is doubling its staff????

Should I red thumb or green thumb????

Be very afraid. The Alaskan will find the 1960 prudo bay oil field and announce it soon. This will cause the Iran dubi and Saudi to sell dollars and flood the market with dollars. You see through the unitednations and the imf. When people talk about the oil cartel it is not opec it is the worldbank and theIMF and the unitednations through gs. They will be very mad because the contract they signed with the worldbank they had to use dollars as the world currency. They had to hold the debt of our country. What do you think will happen when they find the bigest oil field yet with the best crude ever. It will cost them 5.00 a barel to get it out of the ground and they will sell it for 50.00 because that is where oil is heading.Then the oil companies will refine it and gas will hit 2.75 a gal in one year. The threat fromIran is that they will start trading in euros and the oil;companies don't want that.So they scare us with nueks because they like Irqa they won't play ball. EVER wonder how 2 oil men became to be. Oil money, UNITEDNATIONS way of population control.SEE their charter if you don't believe me I think it is charter 21 but it is there. Why traid with chinayou ask? It is now just 2 hard to control the amercai and europen people. China is so mucheasier to controll. So hence the wars.Money back to the rich and WW lll.

Alstry your attack on Palin is low even among your low standards.

Your blogs are getting rather desperate and pathetic.

Just when I thought I couldn't lose any more respect.

Alstry you make me smile realizing how fracked up some people are and how fracked up their distorted views are.

Again shame on you and no this blog won't be receiving any recommendations from me at least.

i would agree it is her body.  and she should stop making rules and running on a platform that would take control away from her body and put it in the hands of a right-winged government.

Palin is a good choice simply because, as lordz has enjoyed pointing out, obama's supporters/voters are stupid.  Since Obama's supporters are stupid, it stands to reason that Hillary's voters were of equal-if-not-worse stupidity.  And McCain's supporters?  Well, if pushing a religious agenda and not ever going by facts but by dubious beliefs that the right-winged neoconservative philosophy has espoused over the past 8 years is any indication, they would be the dumbest of all.  So what's the moral of the story?  Pander to the lowest common denominator.  C'mon over, stupid hillary supporters, you want to vote for a woman, (even though she's for interfering in doctor's offices, against civil liberties, and pro tax cuts for the rich while taxing the poor), then here ya go, we got a pretty nice little lady who's just like you to vote for.  She's a soccer mom just like you!  She's got drama with her kids just like you!  That of course makes her qualified to have the right-hand seat to the most powerful elected position on the planet, of course.

Guys, face it, most voters are stupid.  If you want to have an intelligent conversation, I'm all for it, would it be possible to keep it on the economy and stocks though?

BTW I would probably be a traditional republican - Paul, Flake, Eisenhower, Teddy Roosevelt.  These neocons have absolutely infected the fabric of our government, and willful blindness to the facts are a staple of that philosophy, as evidenced by many of the factual reporting that has been given, just in this blog itself.

"she apparently understands her body well enough."

But every other airline, with strong rules against such behavior.....and medical doctor, even non OB specialists, think such behavior off the charts.

Let's make one point clear, any issue with her daughter is off limits.  There should be privacy laws protecting children.  The fact that her husband may have had a DUI a hundred years ago is absolutely stupid to even raise.

However, her behavior, as it goes to judgment is not only relevant....it is important to consider.  I challenge anyone to ask a physician whether going on a commercial airplane with a high risk pregnancy AFTER going into labor is remotely close to rational behavior???

As far as Obama wanting to borrow $100 million to stimulate the economy where credit is evaporatings is equally as nuts.  Bush did such an idiotic for one reason, to simply make it look like GDP grew in Q2  to postpone a recession call for at least 2 quarters pushing such an announcement beyond the election date.

If you lent a homeless person $100 million and he spent it, it would improve the economy for the period he/she was spending.  The problem is after the money is spent, and with credit being pulled back on almost every front, the system is screwed even worse.

Bush and Obama, with their policies are screwing America....don't fret about our kids....they are doing an excellent job destroying it right now.

Why do you think Oil and commodities are reversing.....after all the borrowed money ran out(which pushed prices up in the first place).....demand is evaporating and money is becoming the scarce commodity.

My guess is that houses have at least another 50-75% to fall as more and more get laid off and inventory is likely to skyrocket this fall.

GM is the perfect example of what has happened to America....after borrowing money for the past thirty years to simply stay in business....now its debt is so high that the only way it can survive is sell off assets and borrow even more until it runs out of assets or can't borrow.

Yes, GM may be growing abroad....especially in India... but selling $4000 cars, even at a profit, will not even come close to generating appropriate gross margin dollars.

Returning back to politices....yes, in America we can vote....unfortunately we can't choose who we are going to vote for because the system perpetuates the same two candidates everytime.

At the current rate of deterioration of debt....within a few months my guess is we will being seeing many many more cities, companies, and constituents declaring bankrupty at ever increasining rates.
