How are was this to see????

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A busload of activists representing working- and middle-class families paid visits Saturday to the lavish homes of American International Group executives to protest the tens of millions of dollars in bonuses awarded by the struggling insurance company after it received a massive federal bailout.

Now ask yourself....if FU virus keeps spreading.......and we keep only bailing out a few exectutives on Wall long before the agiatition escalates to maybe something we can't control???

I was with a group of friends - nobody there liked or supported Bush in any way.  They were upper middle class working professtionals - liberal democrats who all voted for Obama. Every single one of them is scared - really, really scared. It used to be you could tell who the bad guys were, mostly. 

Now who knows?  The vast sums of money being spent with no oversite, the mortgaging of our childrens' future and the upcoming tax hikes are all policies being implemented quickly with no real discussion - it's reallly freaking people out.  

Buyers' remorse - is at least being talked about.

Don't Fear....Prepare!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you were a passenger on the flight that landed on the Hudson River a few weeks ago and were told the plane was going to land in the river.....staying calm was a key reason no one was hurt.

Since the landing on the river was outside anyone's control....the only thing you could do was prepare for the landing.....assume the appropriate position, focus on spirtiualality if you are so inclined, comfort those around you because panic by a few potentially could spread to distress by all, and so on.....

in the end, although panic may be the instinctive is not the appropriate response.....

and those people that brag that they are a few standard deviations smarter than everyone Everyday investor.....they are soon going to learn that they are not smart enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There was plenty of outrage on Capitol Hill last week over the executive bonuses paid out by AIG after getting federal bailout money. But another money trail could make voters just as angry: the campaign dollars to members of Congress from banks and firms that have received billions via the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

While a few big firms, such as Wells Fargo and JP Morgan Chase, have curtailed their campaign giving, others are quietly doling out cash to select members of Congress, particularly those who serve on committees that oversee TARP. In recent filings with the Federal Election Commission, the political action committee for Bank of America (which got $15 billion in bailout money) sent out $24,500 in the first two months of 2009, including $1,500 to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and another $15,000 to members of the House and Senate banking panels. Citigroup ($25 billion) dished out $29,620, including $2,500 to House GOPWhip Eric Cantor, who also got $10,000 from UBS which, while not a TARP recipient, got $5 billion in bailout funds as an AIG "counterparty." "This certainly appears to be a case of TARP funds being recycled into campaign contributions," says Brett Kappell, a D.C. lawyer who tracks donations. (A spokesman for Cantor did not respond to requests for comment. A spokeswoman for Hoyer said it's his "policy to accept legal contributions.")

The cash flow is already causing angst inside the Beltway. "The last thing I want to do is wake up one morning and see our PAC check being burned on C-Span," said one bank lobbyist, who asked not to be identified because of the issue's sensitivity. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Financial Services chair Rep. Barney Frank both said recently they won't take donations from TARP recipients. But House Democratic fundraisers have quietly passed the word that the party's campaign committee will resume accepting them—but down the road, not right now. Said one fundraiser, who also requested anonymity, "These are treacherous waters."

And some people who brag about how much smarter they are then the rest of us are distracted by a little inference by reference through acronyms to vulgarity????....soon we will learn what idoits these fools really are......

soon you will learn why Alstrynomics was created.....the PRACTICAL application of economics and political science butressed by psychology, sociology, physics, mathematics, chemistry and a number of other diciplines synthesized into an actionable application to investing including but not limited to its new emerging area of Techno Trance Spector Vector analysis.
