I was going to pull the trigger on C as well. I could have taken some nice profits if I had committed. Should have known better when C was sitting at $1 support the last couple days. Even so I wouldn't sit on it very long.

That's the markets for ya. Being up 37% is quite a chunk of change I missed. I did pull the trigger on GE though, so I'm quite happy. Now it's just to see if this is sustained or not.

Flip a coin?

I wonder how long that will last. They are running out of time before all hell breaks loose.

I say they have a year for things to turn around, all bets are hedged on this "stimulus" package.

It is really crazy to think they are going to save the banks before the country. Don't worry America the government might default, but that is a okay we will still have 4 zombie banks up and running.

I figure that even if you did buy banks shares, you wouldn't sell them before 2:30 pm trading time hoping for a better quote.

It doesn't matter who manipulates what. The trick is to know when the manipulation starts and ends and cash on it.

40,159 not including the "hundreds" of Disney layoffs.

Between yesterday and today that is 56563 layoffs.

Wow, this is looking like another month with huge layoff numbers, I wonder how much they are going to manipulate them?

The two automotive stamping plants in Windsor are directly outside my office window.

Get this . . . you know how the Big Three went hat in hand to the goverenment, begging for money to help them survive . . . here's how the shoe fits on the OTHER foot.

The two plants in question are owned by the same company. A few years ago, when money paid for scrap metal was at an all-time hight . . . well those in the auto sector faced an edict from Ford, General Motors and Chrysler . . . you only get to keep the amount of money you quoted in terms of revenue from scrap. Any excess is ours. If you don't pay it, we'll take away all your work and put you out of business.

Seriously . . . scrap 'givebacks' were just another way for the Big Three to extort money from the supply sector.

So, some of the suppliers said no as there were no provisions in any contract that excess scrap revenue would somehow immediately revert to the 'customer'.

The two companies held out and continued to say no as they needed the revenue to keep the plants operating, what with skyrocketing fuel costs, input costs and the like.

In this case, Chrysler said no and demanded immediate payment of in excess of $2 million or they'd take the work back and put the two stampers out of business.

Unable to come up with the money, and unable to get financing in the current market, with little other business to keep them afloat, the stampers closed up shop.

So, when Chrysler (or Ford or General Motors) needs money, they expect sympathy.

When their suppliers ask for the same from them . . . they get the official BITE ME and force them to close.

I think the government should do the same to them. Tell them no dough and let the chips fall where they may.

Oh . . . and for the record, there are about 100 people affected by this closure, not 50 as reported by the media.

I just can't believe some of the large numbers - from one company -
It really puts things in perspective.

People are going to be flocking to the government jobs -
and there is something very unsettling in that ... in my opinion.

The little guy - getting littler. Disturbing.

I know the numbers have got to be manipulated.
They always are. One way or the other.
Us humans are too good at that -
Lying about the numbers.

It will be really good to see. Also very hard to watch too. We will see how many people get laid off this month and then see how many get pushed to be counted next month.

That is probably where we are going to be off by a little bit because somethings from last month won't be counted until this month. It is looking bad though, I multiplied today's layoff's by 30 to see where that would put us if that number got laid off everyday for 30 days and it was at 1.2 million.

The other thing to consider is those who get straight fired and then the company protests the unemployment. If any company so much as whimpers about paying the unemployment claims etc they are dropped right there. No amount of complaining or evidence on the persons behalf will help either. So figure in the millions of claims that companies whined about to get canceled. Wow bet those numbers are about 10+ times higher than what is really happening.

True, they have the numbers so fudged it is ridiculous. 8.1% is only the people on unemployment, the real number is hovering somewhere around 15%. Things are much worse than what they are leading us to believe. The market is calling them on it too.

We need a complete rework of the government. We need a government that is actually going to do its job and not protect its own interest.

Thanks Udio for listening to what Bernanke was talking about.

A new bank cartel to take care of all the worlds banks.

Interesting as we as nations will not need anymore a Government that needs to be chosen by the people.

After all they will be assigning our governments just like US assigns the Central banks governor.

But still who will be in charge of this new Bank cartel?

It is indeed.
and... I will be happy to stop posting layoffs if it offends anyone.
I personally think "the little people" are an important part of the big picture.
