Los Lonely Boys – Heaven
What’s on your mind tonite…?
ctut! Saw your comment downstairs about Upton Sinclair’s quote: seems to explain almost everything these days, doesn’t it? Sigh. I’m off to bed; have a fun LLN!
Carlos Santana, and the Boyz… La Bamba…
Me likely. Although I probably shouldn’t up this late!
Aloha, tj, It’s so true…! See ya mañana…! *g*
*heh* I’m sure you’ll survive, M’dear…! ;-)
How’s western New York doing tonite…?
R.I.P. MCA…! Pass The Mic…
Haha, you’re probably right! Western NY isn’t too bad at all, spring is actually staying put for once, cool nights, warm days, etc, etc. It’s been a strange ride this winter.
Paying attention to markets tonight has been pretty interesting however, tomorrow might have some very powerful news releases, especially if the Greeks figure out what’s going on.
*heh* May you live in Interesting Times…! ;-)
Arg, but I was always willing to settle for slightly less interesting times! Too true though, we will keep seeing the change, faster now.
Who will be Mitt’s VP pick? He needs someone ideally who polls higher than Obama and of course Mitt but can a big CEO ego handle being second fiddle like McCain was to Sarah.
He needs someone not boring who can excite a crowd like Sarah that the Fundies will love. But won’t scare off moderate voters.
He needs someone who can get him Women and or Hispanic votes. Unless the GOP has an attractive Hispanic Fundy Woman who can move a crowd without hate what qualities will he settle for?
Mitt could help us by picking Rep Ryan corporate GOPers would give him tons of cash if he did which is a plus. But a loss would discredit the *cough* popularity of the GOP’s economic message and would not help Fundy turnout.
Or will Mitt stay in his comfort zone pick a GOPer from a big state he needs to win who he agrees with on the issues like Mitch Daniels?
*heh* You ain’t seen nothing yet…! ;-)
Very depressing. Hiya Pups.
Aloha, TCU, the Mittster is but a mere distraction, don’t bother fretting over his mere baubles…! ;-)
Aloha, Christine…! My eldest daughter in Ohio was saying Spring has Sprung…! ;-)
I’d bet we play this game until the convention, then Rob Portman shows up as veep for maximum boring value during the speechifying. A safe pick, keeps trying to pull the rust belt into his fold, where he has to win to actually get into the WH.
If we get the right VP a Mitt loss would discredit the Fundy or if we get Rep Ryan the Corporate wing of the GOP.
Thats good news for us if we get another run of the mill big state Governor pick we don’t benefit as much.
Mitt and the whole GOP was getting 6% less primary votes than McCain got before Rick and Newt quit so I agree Mitt losing is a done deal.
But I do hope we get a chance to discredit the Fundy and or Corporate Wings of the GOP by tying them to a Mitt loss.
Their disaster is our benefit:)
Mitt thinks his Dad gets him auto Union Workers Cred Mitt needs the Reagan Republicans so you might be right.
Damm I was hoping for a Total Disaster.
Hey the Socialist kicked out the austerity asshole Bushco buddy Sourkosky! The times they are a changing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYQZSDOWwww (1964)The one thing you can count on is change…can you handle it? I got the best tomato plants around according the the landscaper that delivered mushroom compost.
I think if we are serious about war with Iran that Hugo in Venezuela must be taken care of first. We can’t risk war with Iran if Hugo Iran’s ally decides to cut off our oil supply. Anything happens to Hugo I think will be a first sign that we are moving against Iran.
Hey the Socialist kicked out the austerity asshole Bushco buddy Sourkosky!
We will see I expect in a few months for interest rates to rise on sovereign debt if the market really thinks things will change.
I want Ron Paul to lob a few hand grenades onto the Convention floor in Tampa…! Short of that, the Oily Bomber will steamroll over the Mittster…!
Now, this utter Bullsh*t has my undivided attention these daze… Netanyahu holding elections so he is free to deal with Iran in September-October… *gah*
Voter apathy and massive amounts of money dumped on both sides will in my opinion result in a 52/47 Obama victory. Sorry if you wanted a resounding victory.
Aloha, bb…! Hollande is mighty weak tea as a replacement for Sarkozy, tho…! 8-(
Do I need to supply a link to this?
Paul has Iowa, Nevada, and now Maine, and possibly more. It looks like with 5 states his supports could actually get him on the ballot at the convention if I’m reading this correctly. That makes me understand their suppression effort this while time for willard.
And of course Bibi is up to his old tricks =(
I predict a natural disaster will make it all mute. Eurobonds default. Financial markets tumble and many speculators are wiped out.
So Paul pressures to stop wars?
I won’t be voting O but I do report facts and a 52/47 Obama victory in this economy with these job numbers would be impressive no President has ever been reelected with job numbers this low.
If the GOP has 6% lower Primary turnout now despite the Growth in population than they had when McCain ran then they got Problems.
It was Sarah who boosted the GOP’s numbers for McCain by appealing to hate unless Mitt gets someone else who can rally a crowd with hate Mitt will do worse than McCain did.
At the very least Mitt will have 6% less voters than McCain did I think we can take back the house minimum.
We’ll breach the debt ceiling again around September even if they do manage to keep the European disaster running until then. The treasury might be able to buy some time with various auditing tricks, but who really knows if it will actually get us to November.
You need weak tea to transition from austerity to stimulus. I am glad he is in and S is out. Bond markets may collapse. Monday is red ink.
If it happens before the election Obama gets the blame but will voters want to elect a businessman when business collapses?
Mitt is the best person Obama could run against if that happens but in such a situation I have no idea who would win.
I do think we would be close to revolution though. Since the Tea baggers don’t have the numbers for a popular revolution they might try a right wing coup to keep order.
Not necessarily, bb, but, he does invigorate the anti-war debate from the right side, like even Pat Buchanon is advocating…! ;-)
They are manipulating the daylights out of the unemployment number, I’d not be surprised if Obama really ramps up the political machine into the fall pushing for how it will get better with another term, trust me this time. Romney will have to run on negativity unless he can really actually come up with a functional economic plan…. Based on his flavor of the week endorsement of the Ryan plan, I’m pretty sure that’s a lost cause. But Romney has buckets of money behind him, this will not end well.
B of A’s numbers looking pretty negative. Will TBTF have to be taken over and broken up? So some big shot bankers said this week.
*heh* But, we’re at such lofty heights, bb…! A 13,000+ Dow is ripe for the pickin’s…! ;-)
BOA’s numbers looked awful in Q4 last year. They actually resorted to not correctly GAAP accounting their liability for the lawsuit…. that was dropped by a Federal court back to the NYS level two weeks later. So trying to actually go short TBTF banks is an option, and has made plenty of money, but also has ruined a bunch of people trying to fight Ben, Uncle Buffet, and the powers that be. If you actually had a reasonable short selling, or government backed refinancing program you’d give every homeowner with a job a stimulus, while creating sustainable debt in the system. But the problem is honestly doing that would drop housing prices down again, tanking the last remaining vestige of purchasing power for the average American. If that goes, so does our consumer economy.
Betting all the way down the gambles love it…default swaps will be the game on Wall Street. So where will main street go?
Romney will have to run on negativity unless he can really actually come up with a functional economic plan….
Odds of that happening? I hate dealing with negative numbers.
Mitt very well might think McCain lost because Sarah was not spreading enough hate so if Mitt decides to go negative he will do it bigger than Sarah did.
Hate crimes against everyone will rise as will random shootings. Funny how all random shootings seem to involve right wing nuts. Gangs shoot over a fight, turf or money its stupid but I can understand the motive.
Right Wingers shoot because the crazy people on radio told them too that I can’t understand.
Interesting comments Chaeronea. Aloha all.
A lot of the money is being spend around Romney, the superpac age is upon us, and will not relent. And I highly doubt Romney will be able to articulate an economic message that is something other than “not obama”, when in reality his budget barely cuts anything off the current president’s, and has some…. issues….
Just causing problems for LLN, glad to hear your side Bigbrother, have a goodnight!
Good question… What’s left…?
Hell No (I’m Not Alright)…
…Just causing problems for LLN…
*heh* We’re all big kidz here…! ;-)
To all the Señoritas and Señoras…! ;-)
Bahaha, I’m not so sure about that one!
*heh* I’m deemed a youngster, Grass Hopper…! ;-)
Middle Of The Road…
I shall bid ya’ll another fond adieu, I have a great clip on tap for tomorrow nite…! Mahalo, and, I hope to see ya there…!
Aloha Oe…! *g*
