Well then.. I just saw my name and wondered what all the fuss was over.. I can speak for the Workman's of West Virginia and of course for myself in FL.. hand him over and we will straighten him out.. I would use due care with useing the Workman name where you are.. I am the more liberal version of the ridge runners.. and the name to some of us still means something.. Be well, JW  (Oct 17, 2009 | post #9)

Mortgage

Who caused the mortgage crisis?

Treasury’s Budget Statement: Deficit Continues to Grow The budget for August showed a $111.4 billion deficit, bringing the fiscal year to date deficit to a record $1.38 trillion. Year over year, spending is down slightly while receipts contracted somewhat more. Deficit Expansion Continues • The deficit for the fiscal year to date has reached $1.38 trillion, compared to only $500 billion for the prior year. New records continue to be set as spending vastly exceeds receipts. Thankfully, the fiscal year will close September 30th. • The Congressional Budget Office cites government support for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the ongoing American Recovery and Reinvestment Act as having a major impact. http://www.wachovi asec.com/wachovias ec/WSICommentary/0 9-11-09_indicator2 .pdf  (Sep 12, 2009 | post #345)

"What Notebook Should I Buy?" Notebook Forums and Laptop Discussion http://forum.noteb ookreview.com/inde x.php http://forum.noteb ookreview.com/foru mdisplay.php?f=16 NoteBookReview.com is known for reviewing laptops and gadgets and has a HUGE following of loyal people who post in the forums. The section where a person would go to ask questions of other members or of the moderators about the purchase of a new computer is called "What Notebook Should I Buy?". In this sub section of the forums is where I discovered what seems to me to be deceitful business practices. Whoever the advertiser of the day, meaning whoever is paying NoteBook review for the ad space available would seem to have a vocal and fulltime following in this sub forum. The links are provided directly to the manufacturer who is the sponsor of the day which sounds like a reasonable business practice in itself. The problem I had personally was when I would post Coupons for 30% off or have a differing opinion on the best deal (verse who the paid advertiser for the day was of course) I would be harassed by what would seem to be full time employees and the moderators. I want to be clear, a moderator is a flagged person they are known by their tag of Moderator. The persons posting in what I am describing as the full time position have posts numbering in the 1,000's and seem to have shifts.. call it an eastern daylight shift and a pacific daylight shift and post about the merits the paid advertiser of the day. Once again this seems reasonable in itself but considering a person just read a review about the machine and are looking for accurate information beyond the print ad or review offered from real people only to be then lead by professional herding specialists to a direct link (which is actually a re-direct from Notebook Reviews site) and lacking specifically the best pricing available. That is to say full price sales minus any savings. Now you will notice the Coupon section at Notebook Review which is never up to date and does specifically lack the large discounts available. I think that Consumers should be aware of some of the more sophisticated sales techniques used by what would seem to be regular people trying to help.. that is not the case (in all cases).  (Sep 4, 2009 | post #1)

David Letterman is Great.. Caribou Barbie needs to spend more time at home making sure her girls keep thier panties on.. Or maybe its Todd's job.. Point being someone needs to keep an eye on those girls and its Not David Letterman's job.. His job is to make.. wait for it..... drum roll Paul, please.... Thats right ladies and gentleman.... Daves job is to make LATE NIGHT JOKES... when most teenage girls should and / or are supposed to be in bed.. not out roaming the Mountains of Alaska looking to get knocked up, again or for the first time.. http://www.caribou barbie.com/ But I am sure everything I just typed is BAD..VERY BAD... Why, my kids are not running around pregos under age.. I do my job, I put family first.. Not making a fool of myself on T.V. every chance I get.

Mrs. Bush: History will vindicate her husband

****(http://www.hb s.edu/centennial/b usinesssummit/ ...)**** **** "The financial crisis can be characterized as contagious, with one market after another falling like dominoes. In total, the world has lost around $60 trillion in wealth due to declines in equities, real estate values, and the value of private firms. Rating agencies and leverage are responsible for many of the financial system's problems." **** Jimmy Carter (D): January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981 Dow Jones Industrials Average 1/19/1977 968.67 Dow Jones Industrials Average 1/19/1981 970.99 Carter Plus 2%+ George W. Bush (R): January 20, 2001 to January 20, 2009 Dow Jones Industrials Average 1/19/2001 10587.59 Dow Jones Industrials Average 1/20/2009 7,949 Bush MINUS 20%+ **** "A Look Back – Just How Bad Was 2008? Credit performance was dismal in 2008. Credit spreads ballooned to levels not seen in the modern era, which is remarkable given that they were near their narrowest levels on record as recently as the first half of 2007. The 2008 return for global investment grade and high yield bonds finished at -4.73% and -27.1%, respectively. This is merely part of the story, as these figures mask the fact that risk-free interest rates fell markedly. Global investment grade and highyield corporate bonds inderperformed government bonds by a staggering -16.5% and -38.8%, respectively. US investment grade corporate bonds, the poorest performing market on a riskadjusted basis, posted an excess return of -21.0% for the year. A focus on high-quality instruments was no source of protection in 2008. The longest running corporate bond time series is for US investment grade credit and dates to the 1920s. As illustrated in Exhibit 1, credit spreads are at levels consistent with the depression of the early 1930s. Furthermore, the pace of the sell-off in 2008 has never been equalled." ***** ****( http://www2.goldma nsachs.com/gsam/do cs/inst/w ...)****  (Jun 28, 2009 | post #48782)

It's all on Obama now

Critical Care Patients are always seen. Hypocratic Oath and all.. In plain English, once again we are all paying for this now and will continue to pay through Obama's big business approved plan or if the rules remain the same. That is the ugly truth.  (Jun 21, 2009 | post #1686)

We're headed for socialism

What has Obama done other than stay the course.. Obama has uped troop counts.. Obama will push thru the National Medicad Program or whatever you want to call it.. becuase big business wants it.. Obama is no Kennedy and wants to live longer than 1,000 days. Right, left and / or middle be damned it is about the lobby and all of the above lack the lobby big business has in place churning away the results desired.  (Jun 21, 2009 | post #1071)
