When Will Metalsmiths be Moneymakers?



July 23, 2009 – Comments (4)

Something is wrong with this picture, Fools!

Why is Goldman Sachs reaping record profits in the midst of this crisis while this country's crucial manufacturing base is being left out to rust?

Bonuses for Goldman employees aren't going to create the kind of jobs we need ... we need for the remainder of stimulus funds to go primarily into our manufacturing base.

Here is my article on AK Steel's earnings, which turned into something of a rant. :)

And please note the name of the first CAPS member to comment: "ddimicco". His CAPS account was created today, and I'm thinking it could be him (Nucor CEO Dan Dimicco). :)

HERE, HERE, Mr. Barker!!!!!!!!! Keep spreading the word!!!!!!!!!!

"Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS), meanwhile, just reported record profits, and this Fool wants to know whether you see something wrong with this picture. In my opinion, we need to revitalize the crucial manufacturing sector through investments in infrastructure. Anything less, I suggest, is patently un-American"

What a great line. I agree completely. Stop moving numbers around and start creating with what we have in the US. Steel!

If you follow the trail of money, it always leads to the Federal Reserve Bank. Which has inflated and skimmed off the top of this country and others since it inception in 1913. As long as bank executives run this scam of a bank, and keep getting promoted to run the treasury, all of us, rich or poor, will remain slaves of this un- American institution.  Near the end of his life, Woodrow Wilson stated that the biggest mistake of his presidency was to allow the creation of the Fed. He knew that once created, it couldn't be stopped.

Torches and pitchforks are all that can preserve the freedoms in this country now...
