    Good news!
    Ms Adee mentioned this today in yesterday’s thread, also KatFish Was giving a play-by-play late yesterday;
    Republicans hold off Dems in recalls, win enough seats to keep majority in Senate

  6. 6 Hamous says:

    After failing to interrupt his Camp David weekend to buck up the country on one of its worst days in history, he tacked on his condolences for the soldiers’ families to his economic pep talk, in what had to be the most inept oratorical segue of his presidency.

    Rush Limbaugh? Charles Krauthammer? Nope. Maureen Dowd.

    Speaking from the State Dining Room of the White House, he advised America it was still “a triple-A country” like some cerebral soccer coach urging the kids to win one for the London Interbank Offered Rate.

    Make no mistake, the fire-haired Dowd (whom I suspect possesses lady parts with dentata) has not suddenly grew a brain, she’s still a hard-core socialist. And she’s inherently pessimistic all the time. Still, its amazing how quickly the most socialist president in our history has fallen in the eyes of his worshipers.

    I pray he continues for a full recovery. I’m very interested to hear about anything he remembers from his 20 minutes of death.

  16. 16 Sarge says:

    Dems back off vote-tampering charges

    It does kind of put a crimp in thier “We don’t need no steenking Voter ID.” claim

  17. 17 Tedtam says:

    In my psychology class, we discussed feelings of attraction and how they can be intensified or encouraged by adrenaline. If you remember the movie “Speed,” Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock fell for each other while engaged in a rather tense situation, chock-full of adrenaline-pumping moments. If I remember correctly, our psych class discussed a study where couples met on a park bench and others on a rope bridge. There was a higher level of attraction on the bridge than on the bench.

    Perhaps Ms. Maureen gets Hammy’s adrenals a-pumpin, with her rhetoric, and that translates to into other emotions?

    If so, that certainly doesn’t explain my revulsion when I see Carville. He reminds me of a rabid pit-bull with a spit-while-you-talk bad habit.

    Some armed with swords, some carrying hockey sticks, defiant Sikhs stood guard outside their temples last night. More then 700 men, some in their 80s, took to the streets to protect the homes, businesses and places of worship in Southall, West London. The residents rallied together in a show of unity against looters echoed in other parts of the country as ordinary Britons attempted to reclaim the streets.

Hensarling will serve as co-chair along side Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s, D-Nev., co-chair choice, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.

    Sea trials for China’s first aircraft carrier to start soon. Seeing as how the Chinese have really been belligerent in the ocean lately, I think it is time that a US sub have an “accidental firing” of a torpedo. Yanno, just to let them know we can still pack a serious punch.

    #48 Sarge: That was a real news flash: “Al Sharpton is a moron”. It is really great when NoBrainCcontained makes that explicitly clear to all 75 of their viewers.

    Your caption was good too, but prolly what Obammy was actually saying! Dave’s was totally nutty.

    My quote came from ”Lair Lair” where the Carrey character cannot tell a lie. He meets a gal in the elevator and she says that she’s new here and that everyone is treating her real nice, so he tells her Xactly what he thinks. Of course she slaps him into next week. :grin:

    #56 Bonecrusher Thanks, I LQQked for that earlier but didn’t really have time to search for it.

  62. 62 Bonecrusher says:

    About the baggy pants and staple guns posting and comments: Does anyone else here see the situation the same way or similar as I do?

  63. 63 Bonecrusher says:

    The feds are considering renting out some of the plethora of homes they now own due to the financial meltdown.
    I have some observations:
    1) If they do nothing the homes will become crack houses and will destroy any value that is left in the home, and it will degrade the value in the surrounding homes.
    2) If they set the rental rate too low, they will screw the value of the surrounding homes, not to mention that they will bring in a lower class of people who may decide to “go shopping” in some of the surrounding homes.
    3) The money brought in via rentals will help a little on the budgetary side of our overall financial situation.
    4) I can see real parallels with our country now and Egypt just before the Exodus.
    5) It is not a good idea for Uncle Sam to be a landlord. When one looks at almost every public housing facility, one sees squalor. When the people do not have real skin in the game, they tend to destroy that which is given them. I believe that if the feds use the houses for Section 8 housing, it will cause degradation in the neighborhoods. It is just not a good thing all around.
    6) On a simple supply and demand analysis it appears that there are too many houses in the system overall for our population.

  64. 64 Bonecrusher says:

    In Wisconsin, the gangs of blacks attacking whites only at the opening of the state fair was deemed to NOT be hate crimes. Gee what a wissin surprise,. . . . . . NOT!!

  65. 65 Sarge says:

    2) If they set the rental rate too low, they will screw the value of the surrounding homes, not to mention that they will bring in a lower class of people who may decide to “go shopping” in some of the surrounding homes.
    3) The money brought in via rentals will help a little on the budgetary side of our overall financial situation.

    The rent will be low. I believe current law prevents the gummint from making a profit. Therefore, there will be no revenue benefit as the rent will be set to cover costs and maintenance., and the gummint got it cheap.

    Dow closes down 520 or a bit less than -5%

    Someone musta didn’t eat his peas last night.

  67. 68 Tedtam says:

    As a Catholic, I find this behavior from a Catholic University upsetting.

    It’s none of these people’s professional business what the Tea Party is doing a block away from TBO’s birthday party. And the fact that they were upset about a job fair is wrong, wrong, wrong. Who cares where the jobs come from?

    Oh, wait, I forgot…

  68. 69 Super Dave says:

    #67 Tedtam from the article;

    Mr. Depping has been on a collision course with regulators since 2009, when FDIC examiners began questioning the bank’s large concentration of small-business loans. Nearly all of Main Street’s $175 million loan portfolio has gone to customers like dentists, owners of fast-food franchises and delivery-truck drivers, who use the loans to purchase equipment. The bank’s average loan size is $100,000 to customers who have less than $1 million in annual revenue, Mr. Depping says.

    Mr. Depping says that Main Street’s focus on small-business lending has sheltered the bank from much of the devastation that has swept the industry, including 385 bank failures since the start of 2008.

    Main Street had profits of $1 million in the second quarter and wrote off 1.25% of its loans as uncollectible. That is below the industry’s charge-off rate of 1.82% in the FDIC’s data for the first quarter, the latest available. The bank has earned nearly $11 million in the past year.

    In July 2010, the FDIC slapped Main Street with a 25-page order to boost its capital, strengthen its controls and bring in a new top executive. Regulators also said the bank was putting too many eggs in one basket. Mr. Depping says regulators wanted the bank to shrink its small-business lending to about 25% of the total loan portfolio, down from about 90%.

    So since the bank was doing business on a small scale helping small business they want ot screw it up! How’d that old sayin’ go? “we’re from the Gub’ment and we’re here to help you.”

  69. 70 Bonecrusher says:

    #67 TT: I find it rather “interesting” that the feds want to climb up the back sides of profitable, well-run banks, yet they steadfastly refuse to investigate the underlying causes of the Fannie and Freddie meltdown. They need to start with The Banking Queen and all of his “love interests”, then move to Maxine Watters, Jaimie Gorelich, and Franklin Raines. If the above mentioned people engaged in any of their currently known behaviors, while in private industry, they would be thrown under the jail.

  70. 71 Bonecrusher says:

    From TTs article:

    In July 2010, the FDIC slapped Main Street with a 25-page order to boost its capital, strengthen its controls and bring in a new top executive.

    Since when does the Federal Govt have the authority to tell a private company to hire/fire executives?? The proper response to that order would be “GO POUND SAND YOU POS“, strong letter to follow.

  71. 72 Bonecrusher says:

    The Lost Wages Las Vegas Hilton is in default. The last line of the story is interesting:

    Colony Resorts LVH also reported that it chose not to make monthly interest payments totaling $3.5 million for June, July and August on its $252 million term loan “in order to conserve liquidity for operating and other needs.” The loan makes up the bulk of the company’s $296 million in debt and liabilities.

    While the lender is now entitled to exercise various remedies due to the default, Colony Resorts LVH said it’s “currently in discussions with its lender to negotiate a restructuring of its debt, the outcome of which is uncertain.”

    The term loan lender is Goldman Sachs Commercial Mortgage Capital L.P.

    A Goldman Sachs affiliate is an investor in Colony Resorts LVH and this is not the first time the term loan has been in default, with the last default resolved in July 2010.

    This means the current default may again be resolved on friendly terms.

    Or wissin not. It looks like Goldman Sachs is losing its midas touch and is turning it into the Lopez Portillo touch. El Senor Portillo got the nobel prize in chemistry for turning the Mexican peso into feces.

  72. 73 Robert M says:

    Sorry I was away from my computer for the day. I hope I get this in so that all can enjoy my “Top Ten” list of captions:

    1) This is the expression I had when my teleprompter went blank.

    2) There’s nothing funny about the lousy economy that I brought upon you.

    3) Ooh, a “Tea Partier”!!! Get those cooties away from me.

    4) I am casting my “Vote for me in 2012″ spell on you.

    5) This was one of my sexting posts that I learned from Weiner.

    6) Why are you laughing at the leader of the free world?

    7) I want to scare the thought out of you that you think that my presidency is funny.

    8) (Per Rush) This is my imitation of “Debt Man Walking”.

    9) If you think this is scary, wait until I put on my “Robin Hood” outfit.

    10) Let me cast one of my “change” spells on you.

    See if you like any of these.

    Well, I read it early this morning & didn’t remember it, so reread it now.

    Keep a very sharp eye on the baggy pants crowd as I predict that they will become extremely violent/murderous in the not too distant future.

    Maybe Mayor Nutter’s message will resonate with enough parents and principals to start seeing some improvement? If not, we have let the gubmint build up a huge dependent underclass that now thinks they are entitled to have the same stuff that those who study hard & work hard all their lives are able to achieve.
