Comments on: The US banking system’s terrifying balance sheet http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/04/08/the-us-banking-systems-terrifying-balance-sheet/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: KenG http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/04/08/the-us-banking-systems-terrifying-balance-sheet/comment-page-1/#comment-212 Wed, 08 Apr 2009 17:16:31 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/04/08/the-us-banking-systems-terrifying-balance-sheet/#comment-212 This is why the government is effectively going to guarantee trillions of dollars in loans. We don’t have to nationalize the banks, just guarantee their commitments. Not only has the government paid off AIG’s bad bets, but they have taken over their credit swap business.

1) Firefox browser
2) AdBlockPlus extention for Firefox
3) add blocking filters to disallow most of ad-related scripts, especially cross-site ones, like google-analytics, yahoo. This step takes a while to find proper set of rules, but then it is worth solving it once and for all. For Reuters this is the script to be filtered out:

4) as a general advice, if AdBlockPlus does not help, the next stop is GreaseMonkey which allows total control of page elements…

I am sorry Reuters, but my computer is mine and some “services” are simply pests, far from being useful.

So if I am down on the third or fourth entry the page refreshs and takes me back to the top. Is there a way to turn the auto refresh off?

I think the American people are figuring it all out anyway. Suffering by so many and so many more to come with little or no opportunity for redemption is an inescapable fact of American life. Soon all will see the truth.

This information should be available in its simple and clear form to very taxpayer in this country.
