The Government bailout just hurt us again

Once again, liberal Government policy has hurt those it was intended to help. The government is now guaranteeing certain business debt. What does this mean? An investor looking to buy government secured debt doesn't need to buy government bonds and Fannie/Freddie paper. They can buy corporate debt guaranteed by the US Govt. This paper pays higher interest than conforming loans.

Result: Conforming home loans rates will increase to average American homeowners.

The Constitution of the US charges the government with certain responsibiliies and charges American citizens with certain responsibilities. This move is a liberal move away from strict construction and puts another nail in the coffin. The US should learn to accept consequences instead of diluting the Constitution.

Young man, the Constitution was deemed irrelevant a long time ago, do you not understand that we are under terrorist attack?

GOP or Democrat, there's very little substantial difference. Now you've got me wondering, did Osama kill Harry Browne?

I knew you could set me off in a new direction. Thanks for the creative thinking. You may not know how prophetic you really are, but I do. :wave:

It makes my heart happy that TheSheep has finally found a fan! :clap:

I also like it when TheSheep speaks in English instead of barnyard. :wave:

It's not always popular to find the positives.


I didn't even know that Harry Browne had died until I thought about what the Sheep was saying. If you haven't checked out Harry, a pioneering Libertarian, you might find it an interesting bio. Now if I can get Judge Wells to give me back my arms I might be able to take out Osama.

Hale, Mary, Fuller, Grace.

2.) Polygram Records, Warner Bros., and Zesta Crackers join forces and become:

3.) 3M will merge with Goodyear and become:
MMMGood.

4. Zippo Manufacturing, Audi Motors, Dofasco, and Dakota Mining will merge and become:

Yeah, actually I do.

I think TFT had mom take some XOM off the table and then hooked her up with a trailing stop--I hope it worked out for her. TFT was on the right track by asking questions when the energy market was wild and wooly and did her mom a service by being the voice of reason.

.

I remember that discussion. I'll be interested to hear what TFT's mom did. I didn't touch mine...haven't touched it in 54 years.

Oh I just saw this. TFT's mom did NOT follow through on the stop-loss plan. Months ago I tried to get her to plan to sell a big chunk at $75, and then more if it dropped to $65. She agreed on the $75 stop-loss, but she did not commit to how much to sell, said she was going to meet with a new financial planner first (who would of course tell her the same thing). Did not meet with the planner, did not execute the order, and I've stopped bringing it up. :bang:

If it makes you feel any better, PawPaw is still paying to rent a touchtone phone from the phone company. He thinks it is funny. :bang:

Deep breaths. :wave:
