Fish day dingleberries

Greek riots continue for seventh day

Most embarrassing re-elected members of congress 2008 edition. No real surprises here but it’s nice to know someone is keeping track of this.

Senate backs off from auto bailout and thank bog for it. Mind, I think they were more interested in “not giving power to them there socialists” (what you and I call unions…) than in not rewarding the white collar fuckos busy lining their golden parachutes, but that’s probably just me.
Again I’ll say it – if a company performs badly, if they fuck their employees, continue releasing substandard product, and remain behind the times they deserve to be eliminated – that’s basic capitalism. A free market isn’t free with eight billion controls in it.
Bailing out every greedy fatcat will not save the economy, it just puts it on life support. All of these stimulus packages only delay the inevitable, which is (at least in part) how we wound up where we are today.
Besides, if you don’t punish people who bring us things like the Subprime lending catastrophe, then there is no incentive for people not to do the same or similar in future.

Oh, and the former chairman of NASDAQ? Busted for securities fraud. Fucker.

a bad idea begins spiraling into a worse idea

Oil prices continue to drop – I believe the last time they were this low was sometime early in the Regan era. I guess it’s morning in America again.

and once again a plague leads to more deaths than it should because people are stupid and refuse responsibility even as they place blame – The way our species behaves in times of pestilence is pretty much proof that we’re doomed.
