Yawn Whatever

I was waiting until the closing bell on Wall Street to post this post 'cause the stock market's been down BIG TIME and I wanted to wait to see how low it would bottom out at... but it's bounced back. The Dow still closed with a LOSS but only about 7 points versus the 250 it was down just an hour ago. Seems like every single day we Americans are losing money because of the incompetence in the White House. Investors have NO confidence in the stock market. But what about the fact that The Savior was elected?! Interestingly -- it's made things worse.

Oh, and now this is Breaking News: Judd Gregg withdraws his name for nomination for Commerce Secretary -- more problems for The Savior as he lies to his Obamanation cult followers about the importance of passing the "Stimulus" Bill. The people don't even have anything to do with it. All we can do is call our Senators and Representatives and tell them NO... but give me a break, the Pelosi/Reid-led Dummycrats in Washington will still pass it anyway. Just pathetic.

The North Face trail running shoe -- good for use in the Appalachian Mountains ... but seriously, they are rather small compared to the Rocky Mountains ... Sierra Nevada are sweet, too.  Would definitely use 'em in the Alps, that's for sure.  One thing's for sure -- Jerry Garcia or Bob Weir or Phil Lesh or Blaise Compaoré probably never went running in Liberia, Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, Pyongyang, 평양 직할시 조선민주주의인민공화국 平壤直轄市 朝鮮民主主義人民共和國, Türkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Кыргызстан, Киргизия, Uzbekistan, O'zbekiston, Ўзбекистон Республикаси, Tajikistan, Тоҷикистон.  Probably the same with Brent Mydland.  At least that's my gut feeling.  I could be wrong.  I mean, there were a lot of drugs at Grateful Dead shows and the good Lord above, He knows I did my share!
Thursday Afternoon Run: 24 minutes 20 sec
+10 seconds

11:45 am - 70
° - disgustingly warm for mid-February

Four days since my last run. Not good. I made sure to get out there today. Unfortunately, it was so warm that I really needed water. 70 freakin' degrees Fahrenheit for mid-February is absolutely disgusting. I was somehow able to enjoy an extra hour on the trail, not running but having a nice hike. About an hour at a leisurely pace and 24 minutes running -- not so bad. Only a measly 10 added because of the heat. While my run went well at 70 degrees, it was not easy. Success but I was feeling dead near the end and now dead all afternoon afterward. Oh well, whatever, life sucks, blah blah blah, right, Amy? Are you even fucking reading this?

Hated it. All of it. Maybe one okay song. Maybe two. It's too safe, it has no edge. It feels like Adult Top 40 which usually mostly bores the crap out of me. This album has nearly completely turned me off to listening to anything else from this guy ever again.

Zoooma LOVES misery

what an asshole

Obama has more intelligence than your entire family of inbred redneck white trash slobs.

but whining is SO much easier than getting off your fat drunk ass and doing something, isn't it?

your mom should have aborted

"Seems like every single day we Americans are losing money because of the incompetence in the White House." - I trust you refer to the Bush administration that was asleep while the completely devoid-of-regulation Wall Street pricks worked their Ponzi Scheme. (Actually, I know better - you give that Texas shitheal and his pals a golden pass because you believe that they somehow have something to do with you feeling safe.)

Anonymous in St. Petersburg (SiteMeter shows you as being in St. Pete so that's why we call you that) -- your words are so very lovely. Thank you for being such a peaceful person who is so filled with love for others. By the way, who are you today? The 13 year old girl you said you are? Or the person who voted for McCain?

Concerning the other comment from Anonymous 99.141.56.# (SBC Internet Services) -- Why the hell would I be referring to Bush when he isn't in the White House NOW?!?!?!?! Who's in office NOW?!?!?!?! Investors NOW can't have no confidence in the stock market because of Bush, they have no confidence partially because the government NOW isn't giving them any reason to be confident NOW.

But isn't it just like the typical liberal Obama defender to reference Bush when something right NOW isn't going right. Can't possibly be The Savior's fault. "The Savior's doing nothing wrong, can't be His problem. Let's just blame Bush."

How sad.

FYI -- Yeah, Bush made it his priority to keep us safe and that's what he did. You simply cannot deny that fact. To say Bush had nothing to with that is simply delusional and it stems from an Olbermann-type of idea that dirt has a higher I.Q. than Bush so there's no way he could have done anything right, he probably had someone tie his shoes for him otherwise he'd get confused. Bush Derangement Syndrome. It's so pathetic.

I don't know of any "Savior". Obama was clearly the choice of the 'lessor of two evils' - like ALL of the two party elections in this country. How fair are you to judge Obama after three weeks of trying to solve problems (some of which have been building the last eight years)? Bush is a little more intelligent than dirt - but only enough to be the perfect stooge for his handlers to expedite the neocon agenda. Worked like a charm - witness the state of the world TODAY compared to eight years ago, and then explain why Bush should take no blame.

As for the economic crisis, I mostly blame Wall Street GREED going unchecked. And, I believe Obama is completely wrong to cap CEO salaries at $500,000 - these pricks should be doing 10-12 years prison time and paying restitution.

Besides all that, I like your blog - often interesting reading and great music.

All I'm gonna say at this point is the buck doesn't stop back there, the buck now stops here. The problems are now Obama's to fix. From January 20th through now, and on into the future, he gets the glory or the blame. No former president needs to be mentioned.

I think the media was blinded in their fawning over wanting the historical event to happen but the Sheeple voted Obama into office assuming he'd fix everything. Youtube "Peggy Joseph" for an example. If the idea of the Perfect Obamanation Utopia doesn't come to fruition, are people still gonna blame Bush? That would be idiotic. Remember -- the buck stop here, not back there in the past. The Savior's in charge now and under Him, the stock market has been IN THE TANK nearly EVERY SINGLE DAY. Investor confidence in Obama RIGHT NOW is shot to shit and that's not Bush's fault. It's not Obama's fault alone but if The Savior's planned direction for America looked bright, the stock market would reflect that. It does not and Americans are losing money, myself included. If the market turns around due to orders coming down from the White House -- great!!! But right now everything is bleak and for that we have the President to blame.

"But right now everything is bleak and for that we have the President to blame." Assigning blame never solves the problem. Besides, that doesn't make sense. Obama has been President just 24 days, which doesn't provide a lot of opportunity to stop many bucks.

The economic crisis began on Bush's watch, like it or not. Remember HE delivered the initial "Bailout Or Else" threats (- like Wall Street would actually close the next morning if immediate action wasn't taken). He also appointed the former Goldman Sucks CEO (Paulson) to distribute the first $350 billion (with NO tracking or accountability). The only thing the bailout accomplished was to move debt from investment bankers to future taxpayers, and unlike in the real world, the taxpayers assume the debt, but not ownership of the failed financial institutions. Figure that one out. Personally, I don't understand how encouraging banks to create more debt - lending - will solve the economic woes, certainly not beyond the short term. I also have to believe doing nothing will bring about no solution.

It remains to be seen how well the Stimulus Package works or if it fails. It doesn't seem to address the root of the problem - since the Raygun years TOO MANY jobs have been offshored (corporate GREED - lust for the short term profit)and as a result, the U.S. no longer produces much (manufacturing) and depends too heavily on imports. UNfortunately, too large a part of the economy has shifted to depending on debt - service fees for credit transactions, and the housing market/mortgage fiasco. The creation of jobs for proposed projects to rebuild infrastructure, etc., while worthwhile will not impact the trade deficit.

The ungodly high unemployment, underemployment, and the cause for concern throughout most of the workforce really cuts into consumer spending.

The stockmarket (typically volatile) and investor confidence is only part of the problem. An important part obviously, but how would you quantify the impact of Barack Obama on trading?

** By the way, Thank You - I DL'd the Dead show with Santana...I haven't heard it yet, but it looks interesting.

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
