Should we subsidize, enforce mandates, or give tax credits and deductions to industries like ethanol and natural gas? Having a thriving energy market domestically is a good thing and something the government should not hinder. Not only would decrea
Worried that Congress will not act in time to raise the country's borrowing cap, the Obama administration is enlisting the fascist taxpayer titsucking corporations to bribe lawmakers that a U.S. default will have dire consequences.

SO, is this how Goldman Sachs does it? "It", of course, is making gobs of money even when nobody else on Wall Street can. And those profits then go into outrageous bonuses to employees, which cause rancor on Capitol Hill and on Main Street.
May sound like a joke but it is not. We all know that Goldman Sachs has been cashing in to the tune of billions, partly by getting in front of other traders. This apparently is now a family thing.

We couldn’t make up stuff this well if we tried to. Scam-cam vendor American Traffic Solutions has received an unspecified investment from recently bailed out Goldman Sachs. I, for one, welcome our new financial/police state overlords.
Flash video explains chart showing the Fed taking liquidity OUT of the market, right when they're begging Congress to authorize generating $700b more. Is Bernanke trying to precipitate more bank failures to upgrade the fear factor?
Use the form provided to submit bad assets for the government to take off your hands. Remember, when estimating the value of your 1997 limited edition "MMMbop" CD, it's not what you can sell these items for, it's what you think they
What should we do with the brain dead remnant of our financial system? The correct answer isn't an easy one, but it really is the only sane option. Perhaps the end of the income tax will help to ease the pain.
The United States has come under pressure to announce a ceiling for its farm subsidies, a key part of the WTO's long-delayed Doha round of negotiations for a global trade deal. [Oh yes, "free trade" means free trade]
