Sorry for the lack of posts lately but due to some technical difficulties and a lack of motivation... you get the picture.
Nelson Mandela has passed
I feel sorry for the guy. Not that he died but what they'll do with his legacy. You can just about hear Limpballs getting a loogie ready to spit on his grave. And if you don't believe that stop to consider that Raygun vetoed a bill that put sanctions on the South African government until it ended Apartheid. Had congress not overridden his veto history might be different.
Sound of Music has 18.5 million viewers
I'd bet you get about that many watching reruns of Gilligan's Island on any given day. Got to suck up to the sponsors though and make it sound like a hit.
Stocks jump after strong jobs report
I don't buy that for a minute. It's just that Wall street controls main stream media and every time there a fluctuation downward they have to pump it back up. You do know that over 90% of the stock market is controlled by automatic computer trades. So it matters not what's happening in the real world because trades are executed with no human input. The algorithms merely check for price points in the market and trade accordingly. Eventually all that cheap money flowing in from the Fed will slow down (remember banks can now invest your deposits without your knowledge or permission and you get nothing in return).
All Syria's chemical weapons destroyed
That's a load of BS. The article states that all "unfilled munitions" have been destroyed. That's a far cry from the actual chemicals. It took over 18 months to destroy just 15% of our U.S. stockpile here in the west and that facility was set up to deal with such chemicals. Since this operation is being done at sea I guess they won't worry about environmental impacts should there be a leak.
Bank fails later....
