Wild Bonering occurring 'round the world.

Wait until China and Hong Kong open.......Probably 300 points, easy.

Bush and Kerry are inconsequential to financial markets, totally irrelevant.

The world is now governed by: The Greenspan Fed, the Johnny Law II HedgeFund, and 990N..............aka "The Asset Inflators".

Mars quote:
"But if he holds on to the trade then all he has is a bad trade that might turn around. And since no one knows what the outcome will be (for certain) his best, political course of action is to stay in the trade.

I know that's simplistic but it is unfortunately the model he has to work with and it is the model he seems to have chosen to follow."

The only trouble with this "trade" is that it is not about a few bob that you lose,it's about the life and death of thousands of human beings whether US soldiers or Iraqi "insurgents" men,women and children.These traders are characterized by their sociopathic personalities.The overwhelming need to retain power whatever the cost because in the end some Rovian sociopath will probably be able to spin them off the hook!

Understood and I said that earlier. All I was trying to do here was explain the model - not excuse it - it is unexcusable.

My method of explaining things can be harsh and direct and simplistic. But, if you think about it, everything in life is a trade.

Mars:

It was a great analogy to get us thinking about the human nature of staying with a bad bet "against the odds." Picture yourself as the shill (house player) for a major casino at the 5 Card Stud table. When you're playing with the house's money, you play hands differently than when you're playing with your own money. Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld and even Greenspan are playing with the house's money. Big difference. They can afford to bluff until the bitter end, regardless of the cards they are dealt, because the alternative is more costly than spending every last cent of the house's money. In this analogy, the shill also has access to the Casino's fire alarms, and can set them off for a diversion at any time that suits his game.

Bush is like the typical investor who is incapable of admitting a mistake. He will ride it all the way to zero.

Unfortunately, if given the chance, he will take all of us with him, if the American people do not decide to fire him.

The costs of the failed Iraqi transition

(Posted with permission from Foreign Policy in Focus)

Key findings
"A Failed Transition" is the most comprehensive accounting of the mounting costs of the Iraq war on the United States, Iraq and the world. Among its major findings are stark figures about the escalation of costs in these most recent three months of "transition" to Iraqi rule, a period that the Bush administration claimed would be characterized by falling human and economic costs.

On the other hand, Kerry could always debate himself and fill the entire program. That would really confuse the average voter.

Hello Brian4,


Political Season.


Say what you may about President Bush, I'm on American who is not
about to endorse a guy that's pushing for a world court or needs permission
(where is the sardonic smiley face when you need one) to defend this Great Country.

Tell me if you will. Do you think Europe and Canada would be holding
democratic elections today if it wasn't for the Tremndous Efforts of this Great Country in helping theor friends fight off every form of evil enterprise
during the 1900's and continuing to today?

I saw a great movie last night, Casablanca, a star we probally mutually
admire, played the lead role.

One very interesting scene was when the Sadistic, Nazi,Scum, commander
mentioned to the effete, immoral, French Commander, made to be likeable for entertainment reasons, that the Americans where once again bumbling.
The French Commanders response: I wouldn't be so sure of that. I was there in 1919? when the American's Bumbled into Germany.

Just perhaps the other 1/2 of America might not be so incompetent and
bumblig as some might think.

A smiley face with a blink to you Brian4

and as always;

Best Day

Moon oppose Pluto 6:28 am. I expect a run at resistance. Gold could get smacked as has been the case on recent Pluto days.
