Occupy Wall Street Celebrates First Anniversary … with 181 Arrested

September 18, 2012

The useful idiots in the Occupy “movement” were back and in predictable form as the rubes descended on Wall Street once again to mark the first anniversary of their spectacle.  Surprisingly, only 181 were arrested by the NYPD as of last night on a variety of charges, including disorderly conduct.  A mob is still a [...]

Bernanke Announces QE3

September 13, 2012

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced that the Fed will purchase more than $40 billion a month of mortgage-backed securities, or in other words to embark on a third round of targeted quantitative easing as a way to help the stalling economy.  The markets rallied, Wall Street was smiling, and in no way was this [...]

OWS Destroying the 99 Percent

December 15, 2011

When that collection of moochers, Obama zombies, disillusioned youth, anti-semites, and other ne’er-do-wells known as Occupy Wall Street started causing trouble several months ago, they claimed that they were trying to draw attention to the disparity between the successful (those they call “the one percent”) and everyone else (“the ninety nine percent”) in attempt to [...]

The “Occupy Wall Street” Contagion

October 3, 2011

I haven’t posted on the “Occupy Wall Street” movement yet simply because I thought it would be a mere flash in the pan, but since September 17th the rubes have stuck with it, even getting arrested trying to “occupy” the Brooklyn Bridge.  It was those 700 arrests that have seemed to galvanize this boiler-plate anti-capitalist [...]

Oh That Woeful Economy!

June 1, 2011

Wall Street generally doesn’t like bad news and today it got some:  manufacturing’s down, the private sector only created about 38,000 jobs, and with new unemployment stats due on Friday, this could be a bummer of a week. But I don’t worry about Wall Street so much anymore.  When a possible misprint of a “b” [...]

SEC Caught Overseeing Too Much

April 23, 2010

Imagine you could go to work, get through a simple firewall, and get to check out hard-core pornography on the people’s dime everyday.  If that’s you’re dream job, then the SEC is the place for you! This one is too easy. The SEC says these charges are a few years old, but isn’t that when [...]

The Obama Bow

November 15, 2009

It took 44 Presidents and 220 years since the office of the American Presidency was jump-started by George Washington on Wall Street in late April 1789 before a President thought so little of his office and country to give a full bow to a foreign leader.  We don’t bow to foreign leaders — it indicates [...]

On TARP, The “Experts” Were Wrong

October 27, 2009

The Wall Street Journal, originally one of the biggest supporters proponents of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), wrote an editorial today about how they were wrong in pushing for its passage, and that it needs to end immediately.  Unfortunately, the Obama administration is in no rush to end the TARP Program.  The Journal now [...]

Bailout BS

October 29, 2008

Those frequent visitors to this site know that I have been against the Paulson Socialist Bailout Package since its inception, and have felt that it was not necessary to fixing the economy, was put together too quickly to stem a supposed crisis that few understood, and was packed with pork that had nothing to do [...]

State of the Race – Debating on the Right

October 6, 2008

According to the recent polls, Obama currently has anywhere from a 3-point to a 7-point lead in any of the polls that really matter.  Analysts attribute this primarily to the issue of the economy, but I think that it goes beyond that and to how the two candidates are presenting themselves to voters.  If you [...]

Paulson Plan is Bad for the Economy

September 22, 2008

The Bush Administration has proposed the so-called “Paulson Plan” to fix the economic situation that we now find ourselves in.  The plan would find the U.S. Treasury buying out $700 billion in bad mortgages that is currently crippling Wall Street, in the hopes to free up the credit market and allow Wall Street to rebound.  [...]

The Financial Mess

September 16, 2008

With the collapse of Lehman Brothers to Bankruptcy, and with Merrill Lynch being absorbed by Bank of America, our financial system is foremost on many people’s minds this week.  Add to that the federal takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac last week, and the Bear Sternes collapse earlier this year, and we have a [...]
