They are screwed either way, they still have to pay the pensions even if they do go into chapter 11. They are going to get wiped out either way.

The WH keeps saying, "Don't ever let a crisis go to waste", but that is exactly what they are doing they are turning a crisis into a catastrophe.

Considering how many people support Obama he could easily go on camera and tell them things have to wait till we get out of this, instead he is turning an already unsustainable government into a bigger more unsustainable government.

Between that abd all the bad news that we have gotten I'm surprised the markets are trading are as high as they are even with the manipulation.

When one of these companies goes under the shock waves are going to turn a crisis into a catastrophe.

Your last chance before all hell breaks loose!
by Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D. 03-08-09


Martin here with an urgent Sunday update before all hell breaks loose tomorrow.

Washington is in disarray, its grandiose plans scrambled by events, its new legislation virtually dead on arrival.

The economy is falling off the steepest cliff of the past century, gutting asset values, toppling the dominoes we’ve been warning you about for so many months — and rendering all government attempts at rescue sorrowfully impotent.

The stock market is in a free fall, no bottom in sight, with no force on Earth that could stop it from nose-diving to our medium-term target of 5000 on the Dow.

And yet, despite all this, it seems you missed our emergency briefing in which we carefully explain how to stop the bloodletting immediately — and start profiting immediately — in precisely THIS situation.

I think that’s unfortunate — especially with everything that’s happened just in the last few days. But you still have a few hours before the 1-hour video recording goes offline at midnight tonight. Just turn up your computer speakers and click here.

Plus,

If You’re Thinking It’s “Too Late”
To Do Anything About Your
Portfolio Now, Think Again.

60 Minutes Segment: Your Bank Has Failed: What Happens Next?

Pretty interesting, new info for me in there...I never realized that even upper mgmt of a seized bank didn't know it was going to happen. I for some reason thought they were in on it and only the peons didn't know.

Been unfortunately glued to the tube all day, bad weather here. CNN, MSNBC, and yes FOX are getting dire. Could we see some, for the lay people, (myself included) on what these markets are screaming, ie. If there is even the risk of a bank holiday, why would you not go and remove all but the minimums from your accounts tonight or tomorrow. This acceleration is moving fast. Stock up before the meeting in London next week or before the G20? I don't want to wait for Master Blaster to run Barter Town.

Repub lican senators say some big banks can fail
Reports: McCain, Shelby say government should allow lenders to go under


"Close them down, get them out of business. If they're dead, they ought to be buried," Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said on ABC's "This Week" program, according to reports.
"We bury the small banks. We've got to bury some big ones and send a strong message to the market," the top Republican on the banking committee reportedly said.
Shelby didn't specify any banks, but when asked about Citigroup Inc.he reportedly said the struggling financial giant has "always been a problem child."

Is it just me that thinks this is common sense?
Take G.M. and such. If it goes under and there is a demand for cars, someone will start
up another company.
Supply and Demand..
If there is no demand, what purpose does the company have?

GE Capital Hires Banks to Sell Government-Backed Debt (Update1)


By Patricia Kuo

March 9 (Bloomberg) -- General Electric Capital Corp., the finance arm of General Electric Co., hired five banks to manage a bond sale under the U.S. government’s Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program.

Citigroup Inc., Credit Suisse Group AG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Morgan Stanley are arranging the sale, according to an e-mail sent to investors. Deutsche Bank AG, HSBC Holdings Plc and Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc are also helping with the “benchmark” issue.

The notes may be priced during the early part of this week, the e-mail shows. A benchmark bond sale typically means at least $500 million

I'm past the point of caring too, I've already said I'm going to be laughing as Rome burns. Yea it is sadistic, but there really isn't anything I can do about it.

I just hope I make it to see brighter days.

Life is good Life is short, but as Redhatty says life seems long when you're enslaved.

It is like every time there is a rally about to happen news comes out that makes it worse.

Last Thursday (I think), I thought you people were making a joke about the Nikkei being on lunch.
Bloomberg shows the same thing right now.

Do they really shut down for lunch?

Sorry if this is a really stupid question..
