I know several people who have caved and are now running up any and all debt they can manage.......fully aware that they will simply walk away BK.


Sadly enough I'm finding myself in a similar predicament, what with rising rents, food and fuel costs....Its not like I live outside my means but I'm curiously finding myself unable to pay for the basic tenaments of existence due to the egregious nature of everyone else?? :blink: :blink:

All you old stoolies have bought and sold the world and left me with what :angry: :angry:

Yup, Meta.

The Administration can choose to stir up media frenzies over ethical issues like gay marriage and stem cell research, while completely ignoring the ethical implications of players from the lowliest J6P all the way up to the government taking on more debt than they can ever hope to repay, and inbetween the corporations who are guilty of issuing debt to these obvious high risks, intending to simply offload it down the line so they themselves can wipe their hands clean when the extent of this financial mess is known. At worst they probably hope to reach a token financial settlement with the authorities, of course without admitting any guilt, and of course without management personally having to repay the fat bonuses they earned on since evaporated corporate earnings. Where's the moralizing Right when it comes to this?

Fed's Gramlich: High US Homeownership Rate Entails Risks

WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--Federal Reserve Governor Edward Gramlich said Friday that U.S. home-ownership rates have climbed to such high levels that lenders and housing-support groups need to think hard about how they can expand home purchases without fueling delinquencies and foreclosures.

"Over the 1990s, both prime and sub-prime mortgage loans grew rapidly, and homeownership possibilities were extended to millions of households," Gramlich said in a speech to the Financial Services Roundtable in Chicago. "Ownership rates have now risen to more than 68%, and foreclosures are relatively high in the subprime market, an important source of new mortgage loans."

Neocon Lets Cat Out of Bag
Robert Dreyfuss
May 19, 2004

Michael Rubin—a young staffer at the American Enterprise Institute who’s just left the Pentagon, where he played a small role as a neocon cog in the Office of Special Plans war machine—let a herd of cats out of the bag about his favorite Iraqi phony, Ahmad Chalabi of the Iraqi National Congress.
...
"By telegraphing that he is not the favorite son of America, the administration will bolster him, showing he is his own man."

In other words, it’s all a big con game. The still-neocon-dominated Pentagon—which this week stopped funding Chalabi’s INC —is playing its last card, hoping that it can boost Chalabi’s sagging fortunes by pretending to sever ties with him. That, the neocons hope, will allow Chalabi to strengthen his ties to Sistani, the king-making mullah who, they hope, holds Iraq’s fate in his wrinkled hands.

http://www.tompaine...._out_of_bag.php

Interesting idea since I also read that Chalabi will now play the role of
"victim" to the hilt with his Iraqi audience -- anti-American.
Thus he could play a double role like a spy.
Wait until the Iraqis discover he has promised Washington that when he is in charge he will make peace with Israel and deliver Iraqi oil to them.

Yes, I now feel confident we will have another "unexplainable" attack like 911
to bring home the election.

I just wanna puke!!! :ph34r:


Sherlock

u gotta be f&#^$# kidin. :(

And to think I was ROFL about the Chalabi incident yesterday. I know their is no 100% proof of what you are saying..but when I think of Chaney and the facist I think anything...anythng is possibel !

Shorting WM way up here.
Wishing for a bungie.

Two nights ago I said we might see a mutha of a short squeeze.
My hedging has worked - expect to see a confirmed buy tonight IF there is no major selloff.
