Grandpa Walnuts better watch out
Specter looses in Pa while Paul wins in Ky. Look for Johnny to swing yet further right as the campaign continues. Just how far right can you go?
You think it's about time to impose an age limit? Either that or lower their medical care. Probably the only reason they keep running. At $100 per month health care premiums wouldn't you?
BP exec Tony Haywood predicts oil spill damage to be "modest". Yeah right pal. Can I buy a short on that?
Speaking of shorts Germany is going to ban some shorts. We should have done that a long time ago. What's a short? It's betting that an investment will fail or go down in price. Kind of like buying insurance only you don't have to own the investment product you're insuring. Think of it like heading to the local nursing home and being able to insure the patients even if you aren't related.
Funny how with all this oil leaking into the gulf and the price of oil is now going down. That never happened in the past. In the past when there was any type of interuption or event oil would jump in price. I guess the speculators are running for cover. But the next bubble? That would be gold. There's no good reason gold should be as high as it is. People aren't running out to buy rings or jewlery and manufacturers aren't using tons of it in their processes. And if you're thinking of selling watch out. There's enough scams out there. Remember you heard it here first.
Still waiting for the state to work out the weatherization program. I heard while I was taking my weatherization supervisor course that they added yet another 6 billion dollars to the program. That makes $21 billion and not a dime has made it to the local level.
Keep your drums upright...
