The Signs Were There

Back in July.

More to come soon...

Anyone else notice that the to-date total of the bank bailouts are roughly $1 trillion?

That's roughly the cost of the Iraq War.

An economic, political, strategic blunder not seen since the days of Saladin.

And America wants an old man and a Christianist in the White House?

God really hates us!

I heard they are letting Dracula ring the opening bell today.

Let the blood-letting begin in earnest.

Fiscal conservatives, my butt. Do we really want McCain and Donald Luskin in charge of the economy?

Zero credibility.

Oh and... Bank of America is going to be "too big to fail" when vintage 06 and 07 come riding along.

Are we sure bin Laden isn't on WS? Historical financial institutions crumbling before our eyes.

Reminds me that bin Laden's stated motivation was to "destroy" the West. He did not say bomb.
It has been apparent to me that our current policies, both foreign and domestic, will achieve his stated objectives.

bin Laden, Ben Schmaden. We did this wholly to ourselves. 40 years of terrible bi-partisan decisions on the fundamental direction of our economic and foreign policies has brought us (and the rest of the world, since the dollar is still the defacto reserve currency) to our knees. I blame the GOP a little more, since they have had their greedy fingers on the keys to power a bit more in that timeframe. But the Dems get a lot a blame, too, mainly since they should know better and not give the financial oligarchy everything they have demanded. Ah, but that campaign money smells so good.

Neither candidate has any idea of what a cluster-fck they will be walking into, should they be so lucky as to win. I'll take Obama, since he is the much smarter of the two, and as a Democrat he may have a smidgen of FDR DNA in him. The bad news is that he has an economic team around him as bad as Pappy McLame's.

I'm not sure an FDR would do it now either. The rot has gone too deep.
Don't get me wrong, I'd like to believe there's hope somewhere but, I don't.

Top Economist: Americans Should Worry About Bank Deposits if Congress Doesn't Act

Wall Street doesn't share the trillions in profits, take billions for themselves in perks, wages, compensation, and freely overcharges us in fees and blankets us with deceptive marketing. But lucky us, we all get to share in the pain. Ouch!

It's really hard to believe any of our leadership. I guess you have to be a religious fanatical to be in the Republican party base. Since you can't take them at their word, you got to have something, and faith works for some. One minute they are giving us a bold-faced lie, and the next, they are saying we should have confidence. Huh! And neo-cons they just don't care - whatever works/sticks.

If we are an example to the World, and the World is watching...

Great. We all saw it coming. Now according to the link above, a little guy like me needs to worry about my bank deposits (which are well under $100K). So what should I do now, and when should I do it?
