I think maybe someone at minianville is an ATS"R
following quote in an article titled Markets react to SP 666 and GE $6.66. on the yahoo markets news...(when you get to the actual article in question that isn't the title of the article by the way.....accidental? I think not!)

us.rd.yahoo.com...=12n09e2en/*www.minyanville.com... oo


quote:
Bedazzled? Perhaps it’s nonsensical but last week’s dual ticks at S&P 666 and General Electric (GE) $6.66 didn’t pass unnoticed by those of us who notice such things.

Either that or they are reading our threads to get some ideas

Still going over the unemployment data, and California is a mess!

Their best metro area -- in terms of U(3) -- is San Fran-Oakland-Fremont at 7%. They have 13 metro areas that are at 11.8% or higher.

El Centro, California has a U(3) of 22.66%.

Makes me appreciate Michigan that much more.

Those numbers are WRONG! I live in the area north of the bay area we are all in a world of hurt here. It has gotten to where people are stealing from cars at night where I live.(nice Northbay area)
We had police stop in front of our house no less than 6 times when it started to get dark last night and I caught a lady from up the street scoping our neighbors trucks! They have a excavating biz and where already robbed a couple weeks ago. Guess they had her out walking the little ones as cover to see if they had replaced the equipment.
The unemployment has gotten so bad that when we went down to the local store almost 60% of the perishable items where on close out with the ENTIRE meat department slapped with 1,2 and 4$ off tags! I am going to buy some of that meat this Tuesday and make beef jerky! At least that way we will have some meat to back us up in case they have to stop stocking it or drop it down and raise the prices.

My general rule is to take the official numbers and double them, but I think that for some areas, that's still underestimating things. They think we're too stupid to figure out that the official numbers are crap. When I look around and see that there are no jobs, and that nobody I know has a job, I figure out that local unemployment is a lot higher than 10%!

I hate it when people lie with statistics. It makes it that much harder for people doing credible work.


If it's any consolation, Detroit is demonstrating that crime will drop once things are so bad that nobody has anything to steal. How's that for a silver lining?


Jerky is a great idea!

If this is true:

Stimulus Package is Bringing Welfare Back!

then I think that they've already gotten their bailout. More money in poor neighbourhoods = more things to steal.

When I was in High School I knew a few people that sold drugs and they use to always tell me it is hard to sell drugs and not do them.

Geithner, With Few Aides, Is Scrambling

heh - if double post - sorry


Administration officials say they are postponing their plan to produce a detailed road map for overhauling the nation’s financial regulatory system by April, in time for the Group of 20 meeting in London. Though officials say they will still develop basic principles in time for the meeting, the plan will not include much detail.

Treasury officials are also still scrambling to decide details of their plan to buy up as much as $1 trillion in toxic assets from the nation’s banks, one month after being widely criticized for presenting a plan that lacked any specifics on how it would work... the White House has become so worried about potential tax problems and other issues in the backgrounds of candidates that it has nominated only a handful of people...One of the few areas in which the Treasury has increased its staff is the all-important Office of Financial Stability, which ran the $700 billion financial rescue plan during the Bush administration. But that is because the Bush administration had hired almost 100 staff people by the time of Mr. Obama’s inauguration.


There is NO PLAN - that's what they won't just come out and say!

It is really going to show at the meeting in London this week too. Between the WH excuses of I'm tired and Obama is extremely busy and all that nonsense it is about to become extremely apparent that this admin does not have it together, and not a clue.

What does it exactly say to the rest of the world when nobody wants to work for your Treasury secretary.
