As I figured, because there is money to be made, it would resurface, just under a different name. And what timing too! Just before a major event... perfect time to place bets...

Though there was an outcry over the Pentagon's terrorism futures market, a similar online exchange is in the works to predict what the U.S. government is up to.

The American Action Market will offer various Washington "futures" that can be bet upon and traded. Examples include:

Which country will the White House threaten next?


Who will be the next foreign leader to move off the CIA payroll and onto the White House's "most wanted" list?


Which corporation with close ties to the White House will be the next cloaked in scandal?


The AAM will begin registering traders in September and plans to open for business Oct. 1 -- the same launch date proposed for the Pentagon's terrorism market, until it was shelved.

Like the Pentagon's scrapped Policy Analysis Market, the AAM lets traders "bet" on future events by buying and selling futures as though they were stocks. The higher the price, the more likely the market believes the event will occur. But instead of predicting terrorist strikes, the AAM will predict things like the next White House staffer to quit.

They had already acquired half a million dollars to set it up... and they knew money was the be made... and all they had to do was change the name.

Did you really think they wouldnt?

Its about as low as whale poop on the bottom of the ocean....
But one must also consider who will really be the big "winners" in this or behind this?
Money talks, BS walks.
This is like taking candy from kids for the "elitist' few.
Another form of keeping the 'ignorant many'....ignorant.

Or perhaps it will disgust those ignorant masses enough to make them go out and seek the knowledge to become educated about what the government is really up to.

LOL, yesterday I saw on the "news" that Powell just announced he will not serve a second term if bush gets re-elected. Too much risk?
