Comments on: Fund managers see tough times for Treasuries Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:27:18 +0000 hourly 1 By: paintcan Sat, 06 Aug 2011 23:59:49 +0000 “And the fact is, corporate balance sheets look better than the government’s balance sheet right now.”

You’d think they’d be ashamed to say it, considering where so much of the “balance” came from, even if the article is out of phase with the rest of Reuters.

There haven’t been any reports that anyone besides GM ever paid back the TARP loans.

I really get the impression that the economy will fold because an awful lot of very well placed people may have decided that it was going to fold ten years ago and made the biggest golden parachute you could imagine. I’d like to know where they expect to land? I’m sure wherever it is, they don’t accept food stamps?

I could despise the business class of this country. From the start of the two wars it was obvious that Bush’s administration, and Obama isn’t very different either, was trying to sell a mercenary or volunteer war effort, as “sustainable” warfare. They also knew it would die if it ever came to a draft.

The two personified nukes in the preceding comments could incinerate their neighborhoods and we would be no closer to the truth about what has been going on over the last waste of a decade.

Other than that big booboo, the article is right on target.
