It is simply a date I read some where… Probably on the back of some worthless piece of paper, or something like that.

Finally, some one is listening. It remains to be seen if this a good or a bad thing. Help for our nations, and peoples motives can be so hard to gauge. But when people talk about relevant issues, my ears perk up!

I wouldn’t feel at all safe unless it were less than 10% so even if things were off by an order of magnitude it would still be <= 100%.

Why do you doubters doubt? Can’t you see how high the wall street flies? Don’t you know we have stepped back from the edge of depression, we are now a full 1 foot from depression, it can’t get much safer than that can it?

Soon there will be free gold for everyone and everlasting life and beauty, are we not living in the most glorious time ever? If you hear noises at night do not worry it is merely me Helicopter Ben dropping bales of Ben Franklins in your neighborhood from the BenCopter (copyright Federal Reserve Productions 2005)

Who will you believe your eyes or my words? Economic propaganda is the new black, if anyone had a clue what to do, we’d be doing it, instead you must settle for financial theater, where we tell you everything is better and better.

In retrospect, these will seem like the good times, so be careful wishing for the future, it may not be what you think it will be.

Buy canned goods….

Nah, I’m just being paranoid…

TARP damage is now rearing its ugly head after the failure of United Commercial Bank last week. That one cost taxpayers just under $300 million in lost TARP funds.
