The Unintended Consequences and the Dearth Spiral.



March 06, 2009 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: AUY , GLD , SLV

Thank you congress for not cutting your salary by 50% like you want the CEO'S. I like the fact that you talk the talk but don't walk the walk. Also I want to thank you for not ending the NAFTA and Cafta agreements and bringing 20 million jobs home, after all that would be walking the walk again. Thank you for upping the cigarette tax to cover the non documented workers health care. I know you said that you would only raise it on the rich but I earn under 15k a year and I just love this new tax. I can now buy less and support other people all at the same time. Don't forget to take you campaign funds from these special intress groups because I am tapped out. I would also like to thank you for raising the budget by 50% in one year and then telling me you will cut the budget by 50% in 4 years. I have bridge in Brooklyn I can sell you. Thank you for telling people not to spend on conferences for these companies because now the few jobs we have left is the travel industry which is by the way the 3rd largest part of America now at 1.8 million people is drying up. Now what you don't realize is that there are 15 million jobs connected to that. So if we loose 1/2 of that industry then the total unemployment will be about another 8 million more or less jobs lost in the coming 8 months. That is to say Directly and indirectly. What will that do to the unemployment figures then. Oh and don't forget GM. The unofficial unemployment is now around 18%. What is going to happen when the Severance pay runs out and people start collecting unemployment? 30% 40% Have you thought abbot that one Congress? Thank you again for the good job in Washington you are doing. Oh and Congress members you better Talk to Ron Paul because at the rate we are going this great country of mine who's brave men and women are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan for me won't have the same country to come back to that they left.I will do everything I can do to make sure they do. Bring them home now. Get rid of the FED. Print our own money backed by gold and silver and for the love of God, President Obama and Congress remember your vow to uphold the Constitution and Protect and Defend me from ALL ENEMIES Foreign but most Importantly DOMESTIC. The Fed that we rent our money from has enslaved us. There is more than one kind of Slavery. You know how wrong Slavery is so please stop this form also. Lincoln freed the Slaves once. Now President Obama and Congress it is your time to Free the New Slaves of the United States and the World from The IMF and the WORLD BANK. So Congress you have alot to do and I hope this letter reaches you. Thank you MF guys for letting me get this off of my chest. I would just like a have a country still by Christmas. You know it is bad when the Media Cartell of ours starts talking about carrying gold and silver for when the fall comes and they will leave the country and they are playing down the gun sales. It is finally getting out to main street. Just a bookseller who is doing the best she can. Lynda.

Quit smoking, Lynda; not only will it save you money, but the amount of health care dollars it will save the rest of us is huge.

Me likey.

Unintended consequences:

Politicians wanted cheaper housing: Lower interest rates and lower loan requirements caused housing prices to go up, people get hosed on the bubble.

Insurance companies won't insure houses near the ocean so the gov't does it: More people build near the ocean and gov't (you and me) pays to rebuild after the storm.

This is a good post minus the part about the increase in cigarette tax.  That is a good thing.  I can't think of a good reason to be a smoker.

Win-Win Stock Tip: Quit smoking long enough to buy 100 shares of MO. Current yield is 8.3%. Use dividends to then resume your habit. MO will pay you to smoke. Everybody's happy.

LOL hey I gave up drinking to save money. Hey they should tax alcohol more. They are now finding out drinks help trigger health problems. As for my health on cigs, I have had no problems or health care cost due to them. However the health cost due to very bad interactions with medication to treat unrelated issues that started way before I started smoking is unreal. So let us get this straight. Bad Drugs from Drug Co. Have cost us more than my cigs. Eudeminic. Where do you think my drinking money goes? IT goes to MO. LOL I love you guys, you make me smile. L.

Lquad, congrats on your recent rise. Looking at the bowl shape to your scoring graph I must say, good work. Best I was able to do was a slow upturn to somewhat neutral bouancy. Tried a kamikazi run last week that had almost zero net effect. I'll have to come up with something.

Anyway, congrats on the climb up.
