Monday mixed nuts
North Korea shakes it's fist at South Korea after sinking one of it's war ships. Isn't that like the bully threatening to hit you again after he just punched you in the stomach? I'm not too concerned about North Korea because they went to China a couple of weeks ago and asked China for financial help but were turned down. So Kim Jong huffed off back to North Korea in a snit. Sorry Kim China helped you in the past, you wouldn't take their advice but you had no problem taking their money.
The oil just keeps gushing in the Gulf as the worlds largest spill continues. BP keeps fiddle farting around. Hey guys you've had a month to come up with a solution. I could think of a dozen ways by now. My guess would be that they're trying to figure out a way to save this well without further damage to their bottom line. If you want to keep up on the latest with live video pop over to fellow blogger's place Monkeyfister I'm sure he's shaking his monkey fist at them.
You'll note that the unemployment numbers went down last week. The reason? Not that there was any great increase in hiring. It's that people's unemployment ran out. When that happens you're no longer counted as being unemployed. You are now a non person. I remember seeing photos of the bread lines of the last Great Depression and noticing that a lot of the guys in three piece suits and was told that many were from Wall Street. Well it looks like they figured out a way to cover their own asses this time around now doesn't it? Oh terror of terrors we had to give up the vacation house on Cape Cod and switch to domestic wines.
