Monetary Worth of Bush and Cheney

It seems to this writer that when George W. Bush entered the White House he had a net worth of about $21 Million.  I don’t recall ever hearing the worth of Dick Cheney.  When a public servant enters an office like President or Vice President they put their assets in a blind trust.  Someone else […]

The Job of the Corporate Accountant

The game is afoot.  A high stakes game.  A game in the neighborhood of 1,000 billion dollars.  Government dollars.  Taxpayer dollars.  The bail out of Wall Street – or call it a rescue package – is the new game in town.  And Corporate Accountants are scurrying around looking for the best possible outcome for their […]

Trust God, But Lock Your Car

The Federal Government of the past eight years reminded this writer of an old computer axiom – we can now make a million mistakes a minute. In 1972 I worked in the world of finance with an IBM 370, Model 145 – one of those mainframe computers with a front panel of flashing white, yellow, […]

Democrats are Complicit in Economic Collapse

Democrats and Republicans mixed the Perfect Economic Storm.  A big part of the collapse of Wall Street should rightly be put at the feet of the Wall Street Bankers.  These are the ‘experts’ who were charged with managing the bank’s resources.  Our government sanctioned lunacy in the banking industry – but that does not excuse […]

McCain’s Problematic Use of ‘Naive’

John McCain likes to refer to Barack Obama as being naive, always in the context of foreign policy.  McCain says Obama is naive about Iraq, about Russia, about terrorists.  But McCain should be careful with this word.  John McCain has championed deregulation for rich bankers and Big Oil – with the belief that these folks […]

The Wall Street Bailout is Personal – KISS

This is personal.  This disaster on Wall Street and in the halls of Washington.  Most of us have no idea what our Government leaders are talking about.  Most of us don’t understand why every man woman and child in America has to put up something like $2,500 to bailout a rich Wall Street Banker.  But […]

McCain’s Criminal Closed Thinking

There is a booklet in the State Prison System which is used in the drug and alcohol treatment programs.  The association with drugs and alcohol is faulty – but the idea is this:  What types of “Closed Thinking” leads to criminal behavior? In light of the criminal behavior on Wall Street we should ask these […]

The Real McCain – The Keating Five

John McCain has desperately floundered this week to adopt a meaningful policy to deal with the economy.  He changes his position two or three times every day.  As if this were not enough to violate our trust, his entire history is one of catering to exactly the sort of people who have crashed Wall Street.  […]

Wall Street Terrorizes America

Osama Bin Laden, who remains free, launched four planes at American’s financial and military structure on September 11, 2001.  Bush reacted and has weakened our military.  The Republicans reacted and eliminated regulations on Mortgage Banks and Investment Banks.  Then the American Terrorists took over. The Stock Market has dropped more this week than at any […]

Tony Soprano is Running Wall Street

The Bush Administration has made Wall Street an offer they can’t refuse.  Suck the life out of the company, siphoning money from the investing middle class, then we will tax the middle class to bail you out. The movies have had great material with organized crime.  The rage began with The Godfather, continued with Goodfellas, […]

McCain, “My Friends, trust me”

McCain wants the people to trust him.  We are nauseated every time we hear McCain use the term ‘my friends,’  he wears it out.  He suggests he is your friend – but we should all check the value of or 401k’s today.  That is the true measure of how much the Republican brand is your […]
