NONE of what I type, should be taken as financial advice.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest that you've sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, alone
Dragged down by the stone.

I din't find it funny. I guess I don't like pointed anti-Democrat jokes.  Especially when the Dems are the only ones making an attempt to defend the defenseless. 

Please explain why an American has to pay three times as much for his cholesterol medication as does a Canadian.  Why is it that the working poor, who make too much for medicaid, but not enough to buy health insurance, are not entitled to health care in this country.

Because the Republicans have blocked every attempt at health care reform while massively increasing military spending.  So let's just blame a few crooks from the underclass for all our problems, instead of blaming the elite crooks who are the ones who get away with all kinds of financial chicanery without fear of penaltly. 

This disgusts me.

Save NY, tobacco taxes are far less than in Canada. Where do the sin taxes go in Canada? Healthcare. That partly answers the question. The rest you are correct on.

Your going to see a lot of misinformation about all parties.
Responding to it will be a full time job.

In the end it will come down to the rigged electronic voting machines,
who has the majority, and who can rip off the govt the most.

In a way I hope they try to rally tomorrow.
I need more shares short.

If we do rally tomorrow or Wed. Look for no higher than 1135. IMHO.

Putin seems more concerned about absolute control of oil than what investors think about his country. Somehow sound familiar?

Yukos Says Output,
Exports May Ebb

By GREGORY L. WHITE
Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
July 6, 2004

MOSCOW -- OAO Yukos warned that its oil output and exports could begin to suffer within weeks, now that law-enforcement officials have frozen its bank accounts and assets, creditors have warned it could be in default and talks on a settlement of alleged back-tax obligations have broken down.

The pressure on Russia's largest crude-oil producer has increased substantially during the past week, raising questions about whether the Kremlin intends to honor President Vladimir Putin's June 17 pledge that his government would do its best to prevent a bankruptcy.

But Mr. Misamore said if Yukos isn't able to access its accounts during the next few weeks, it might not be able to pay taxes and fees needed to ensure crude-oil exports in August. anal cysts say other Russian oil companies would likely make up any shortfall in Yukos shipments, at least in the short term.

Mr. Misamore declined to specify when Yukos would have to cut production or exports as a result of the asset and account freezes, saying only: "It can get extremely serious very quickly."

The Grasshopper and the Ant

OLD VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks he's a fool and laughs and dances and plays the Summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE ORIGINAL STORY: Self reliance and personal responsibility are important virtues.


MODERN VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks he's a fool and laughs and dances and plays the Summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.

CBS, NBC, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast . How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when they sing, "It's Not Easy Being Green."

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, "We shall overcome." Jesse then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

Tom Daschle & John Kerry exclaim in an interview with Peter Jennings that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his "fair share."

Finally, the EEOC drafts the "Economic Equity and Anti-Grasshopper Act," retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing
left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government. Hillary gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a
panel of federal judges that Bill appointed from a list of welfare recipients.

The ant loses the case.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL OF THE MODERN STORY: Only in America, do the virtueless prevail.

Only virtueless people attach interest to a medium of exchange...Did you know that? Well now you do...Unless of course you reject that truth.
"We are completely dependant on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money (at the request of the consumer) we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system.... It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon." --Robert H. Hemphill, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank,1938...

The entire Universe is a capitalist construct...every form of life at the core of it's being is capitalistic...All matter is capitalistic.
