Remember.....this was ALL ENGINEERED by Benny Bin Bernanke's Zombulation Plan......

Instead of buying the mortgage from the bank for $ would have been just as easy to loan the money to the homeowner at the same terms being offered to banks and have the homeowner pay off the bank......

the government would have been in the exact same position but would have owned a mortgage that was performing......


and some of you are counting on your success in 2011?

heck, as Denninger reports.......good luck if you get your pension.....

More Ill-Noise (And Other States): PENSIONS


Better read this all you in some sort of state employee union....

The opinion acknowledges that the constitution creates a contractual agreement between the workers and the state's employee pension funds. But it concludes that neither the constitution nor the law say the state is a guarantor of that obligation.

Got that?

For those who don't want to read the whole article (you should), it basically means that:

Yes, The State has a contractual relationship with the pensioners.

No, the obligation does not extend beyond the pension fund's resources.

That is, The State cannot steal the pension money.  But it is not obligated to stand behind a bankrupt pension fund that runs out of money and is unable to meet it's obligations.

What's better is that the PBGC doesn't provide any safety against such a condition either - PBGC options exist only for private pensions, not public ones.

OK, so why should I take advice of any kind from someone who thinks of everyone else as "sheep?" Clearly, we're too stupid to understand what you're talking about.

You talk down to your audience, like you have better things to do. So, why not do those things instead? I'm sure we'll be sheep either way.

Now America shuts down.....just moving along right according to the Zombulation plan.....and just wait until the "rich" learn that they are liable for the nation's debt....especially the trillions we borrowed and guaranteed over the past year making them think they were still rich...once the info is out, they will not think they are so rich anymore.....

Bankruptcies Reach Nearly 5-Year High...

Raged .. I saw the Tony Robbins video a few days ago and I had the same reaction you did .. it's not his job to warn people .. i took it as a huge warning because he is around so many insiders .. also, does anyone here follow Terry Laundry (T theory) .. my husband follows him closely and he's keeping a close eye on 8/26-28 ..
