"So far this year, the federal government has put up nearly $30 billion to avert a major financial default by the investment bank Bear Stearns Cos.; committed to investing as much as $200 billion in preferred stock of the loss-plagued finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and at least $5 billion in their mortgage securities; and agreed to provide an emergency loan of $85 billion to American International Group Inc. in return for an ownership stake of as much as 80% in the stricken insurance giant."
Treasury sectratary, Heads of Senate and Congress and Chairman of the federal reserve have determined that the way to get our economy and housing markets back on track is to keep interest rates low and to pump more fake and borrowed money into the economy which is exactly what was done to get us IN to this mess. Ok these people cant be that stupid, either ther’re trying to pass the buck, pun intended, or more likely they have some ulterior motive like the complete collapse of the dollar and rise of the Amero.
No bull: Police lasso bull on NYC’s streets - Bull dies after arrest
Sep. 18, 2008
NEW YORK - It looked like an urban rodeo on the streets of New York City.
Police say a young bull made a dash for freedom through the streets of Queens on Wednesday night but suddenly died before he could be taken to an animal sanctuary.
Police cars tried to steer the bull off the crowded roadways but the several-hundred-pound animal hit and damaged a squad car. An NYPD officer with urban cowboy skills lassoed the bull and it was tranquilized.
New York Center for Animal Care and Control spokesman Richard Gentles says the bull died less than an hour after it was brought in. He says veterinarians found no signs of what had caused the bull’s death.
An NYPD spokesman says it’s not known where the bull had been kept.
I sometimes go to Cake’s website to see tour dates (they’ll be in Albany Sept 30th and in NJ Oct 1) and check out their weekly poll. This week’s poll is about pot: "Does marijuana often make people weak and paranoid?"
Ok, to lighten the mood here, I submit this to the general assemblage.
I don’t know how you all are about religion and the bible, but I found a site that puts many of the stories to Legos (yes, that’s right, the little block toys) and holy shit some if it’s pretty funny. Some of it’s fucked up too. Millions of people swear by this book. Talk about out of date.
’If two men are fighting...’
’...and the wife of one man rescues her husband from his assailant by grabbing his testicles...’
’...you must cut off her hand. Show her no pity.’
Jesus that’s some funny shit. Did you see the look on the guy’s face? And her’s?
