Here's a new twist - sort of...


The U.S. government rescued giant insurer American International Group in part because its collapse would dramatically hurt European institutions, a senior Democratic lawmaker said on Thursday.

The U.S. government has bailed out AIG three times since Sept. 16 and committed about $180 billion to keep the insurer alive and doing business.

"One of the reasons we had to rescue AIG was the fact that it was going to bring down Europe," Pennsylvania Rep. Paul Kanjorski told reporters after his subcommittee held a hearing on systemic risk.

When asked if he was concerned that some of the money going to AIG was going to European counterparties, Kanjorski said: "I am sure it is."

First off, I would like to commend all those that are contributing to this thread. It rocks and feeds my sadistic desire to see this corrupt establishment burn to the ground. (What else can one do, anyway?)

For those wondering about resistance and where the Dow can go from here... Well, I read George Ure's Urban Survival blog every day... I love it. He often consults with a friend of his (Robin Landry) who seems to have a great knack at forecasting the markets based on K-wave/Elliott wave theory. This is what he said to george back on January 21st:


“George, my indicators which are right about 90% of the time are still indicating that we are going much further down from here. Now, the first target is Dow 7,859. After that we have resistance around 7,561, but those are only stops along the way. On a 15-minute chart it’s continuing to build the case for a decline to in the best case Dow 6,324, or in the worst case to Dow 4,611. And again, my targets get hit 90% of the time…”


I'm sure every financial analyst and market adviser is shouting BUY! from the rooftops. I wonder if they would be if they were responsible for insurance on investments?


Cheers folks, time to warm up some popcorn and pop open a cold brewski for the Asian markets to open. I appreciate my new pastime!

Does anyone here knows what in fact is going on?
I mean, I know what is going on, but that's insane...

Banks have literally turned into a Wild Tornado, money is flying all about together with roofs and cows, President Obama says: "This time, there is no debate about whether all Americans should have quality, affordable healthcare – the only question is, how?"

Underline:

The only question is how?

Does he know how?

Love how the news comes out after closing bell


GM delivers its latest request for more money

General Motors is teetering on the brink of financial chaos. GM says that its cash on hand is being depleted to levels where it will no longer be able to operate unless it gets $2B USD in additional loans at the end of March.

GM is pleading with the government to give it an expanded bailout, while President Obama and his staff are considering cutting GM off and letting it go bankrupt. GM has warned in the past that it cannot survive bankruptcy, and now it is "warning" the government yet again that it will go bankrupt without intervention and of the consequences that would have on the economy.

GM Says It Will Pull Bankruptcy Trigger Unless It Gets More Money

I just wish we could have let the banks fall too. People wonder why we keep throwing BILLIONS into the black hole of banks and insurance companies... it is because that is the only thing the gov't knows to do!

I doubt the Feds will let them go bankrupt... I really wish they did.. albeit, it would be like a nuclear bomb blasting across the economy. I am torn on the issue. The Free Market Capitalist in me wants all failed companies to fail. The Humanist inside me shivers to think of the chaos that would ensue, and the millions made unemployed in a month..
