Is D-Day Set for April 6?

March 28, 2007

I know it’s not like there is any reson to sound off alarm bells or anything, just because there are persistent reports from outside our news-embargoed nation that beginning at 4am on April 6 (one week from today) the Chuy-loving US will unleash their preciously priced ordnance Alah loving Iran:

The attack is slated to last for twelve hours, according to Uglanov, lasting from 4 AM until 4 PM local time. Friday is a holiday in Iran. In the course of the attack, code named Operation Bite, about 20 targets are marked for bombing; the list includes uranium enrichment facilities, research centers, and laboratories.

The first reactor at the Bushehr nuclear plant, where Russian engineers are working, is supposed to be spared from destruction. The US attack plan reportedly calls for the Iranian air defense system to be degraded, for numerous Iranian warships to be sunk in the Persian Gulf, and the for the most important headquarters of the Iranian armed forces to be wiped out.

After all, when the internets are all-abuzzing it can usually only mean you should not adjust your monitor, it is only your mind that sense a distortion of reality.So if in a weeks time this comes true, then it only makes sense that our crazed elected criminals are making good on their promise to a chosen few and unleashing their own personal holy war. It would only make sense then that they would next turn on their constituents, us citizens, in order to keep order, would it not?

Where will it start?

Let’s just call it (for now) more conspiracy nutty-flavored hoo-ha, and for some it’s wishful thinking, for others it’s all been for a big laugh.

Sub Prime Blues

March 6, 2007

Although you had to have your head buried in the sand to be shocked by this situation, the Sub Prime market woes, which rocked Wal Street last week (contnuing into this week), is thought to because of fears of huge defaults on risky home loans. Now that rates are rising and those crazy mixed-up kids who thought interest only loans, or fibbing about their real income, was a good thing to do, have to face the music.

NY Times details how New Century, based in Irvine, CA is being investigated by the feds.

Bloomberg writes a tearful story about how some of the high flying agents and employees for Fremont are now unemployed.

One pricelss tidbit; when interviewed, an ex-employee moaned how brokers are more at fault:

Rones said Fremont and its staff shouldn’t be blamed for problems with subprime loans, since they “put people in homes.” Mortgage brokers who had more information about their clients’ ability to repay should be held responsible, he said.”There should be a thorough investigation of the brokers,” Rones said. “We’re getting a really bad rap.”

My sympathies on losing that well paying job, and if you could see me now my fingers are play the world’s smallest violin.

Hell-O! Checks and balances would be a concept worth considering if you want yourbusiness to outlast a trend.

Finally, Marketbeat blog at WSJ conjures a picture worthy of Monty python:

Run Away! Run Away!
