Interesting, apparently some CAPs players are also downsizing their recs, LOL.

That ABC News cut is quite telling...but even more so are each and every other new headline you kindly gather for us in concise, convenient format, thank you.

How are you collecting these headlines at the moment?  I would imagine you've developed an automated aggregator somehow of headlines matching certain keywords you input?

It's a Recession Alstry.... That means you are no longer entitled to receive as many RECs as you normally would if our economy didn't stink.

A recession???  You are kidding right??

Government is running a $2 trillion dollar deficit and we are still contracting....we should be growing like you have never seen before.

My guess is a big portion of government income tax receipts now comes from the inflated salaries government pays its own government employees........

why doesn't government simply reduce the payments net of taxes????........whoooops tax receipts might actually be negative and all crediblity in government would be lost.

This is not a recession.....this is a fraud.....and as an attorney, a qualified expert as a business analyst, and a horrible speller to boot.....I can assure you that what is going on is unprecedented in history...both in scope and magnitude.

We as a nation punish our ex pats that bribe government officials to further business where bribery is commonplace....yet we turn a blind eye to banks that collude with governments to conceal their debt obligations and turn around and sell securities to our own citizens?

My friend...what we are dealing with is at a much higher level then the typical chimp analysis about a business or industry.....

You will soon understand what I am talking  I have no clue at this point....but whatever it is....I can assure you it will be BIG.....Alstry Big!!!!!
