Will tough love fix Greece’s economic woes?

Sat. April 24

WASHINGTON – Global finance officials are sending Greece a tough love message: Move ahead on economic reforms and we’ll come to the rescue with an emergency loan package.

The rapidly escalating Greek debt crisis was expected to dominate discussions at Saturday’s gathering of the 186-nation International Monetary Fund and its sister lending agency, the World Bank.

Greek Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou was scheduled to have a separate meetings with IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and finance officials from Russia and Brazil.

Crippled by soaring borrowing costs, Greece triggered an emergency aid plan Friday to draw cash from the IMF and countries that use the euro.

There’s enough money in the package to prevent Greece from defaulting on its massive debts. Eurozone members will contribute $40 billion, while the IMF will pony up $13.4 billion this year. Continue reading

GM pays back government loans from US, Canada

Wed. April 21

DETROIT – General Motors Co. has repaid the $8.1 billion in loans it got from the U.S. and Canadian governments, a move its CEO says is a sign automaker is on the road to recovery.

GM CEO Whitacre will formally announce the loan paybacks Wednesday at the company’s Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas, where he will also announce that GM is investing $257 million in that factory and the Detroit-Hamtramck plant, both of which will build the next generation of the midsize Chevrolet Malibu.

GM got a total of $52 billion from the U.S. government and $9.5 billion from the Canadian and Ontario governments as it went through bankruptcy protection last year. The U.S. considered as a loan $6.7 billion of the aid, while the Canadian governments held $1.4 billion in loans.

The U.S. government payments, made Tuesday, came five years ahead of schedule, and Whitacre said they are a sign that the automaker is on its way toward reducing government ownership of the company. The payments on the Canadian loans were also made Tuesday. Continue reading

Ice cap thaw may awaken Icelandic volcanoes

Sat. April 17, 2010

This is getting bull shit more and more every day, every time some thing happens in the world now, the first mouth full of shit that comes rolling out is GLOBAL WARMING, CLIMATE CHANGE, if this is going to be so bad then why did the biggest shit peddler BUY a CONDO right down on the water front in California if this going to be that bad, because all these chicken little’s are going to profit if they can scar people in to thinking that the world is come to and end if you don’t believe in what they are saying. (Known as a SCAM)

What is the next thing they are going to blame climate change on, shitting your pants, passing gas, burping, they are blaming animals, well maybe we should go back in time before any one was here during the ice, who do you blame for the disappearance of the ice age, or all these earth quakes that have been from day one, shall we blame all these chicken little’s who were born after the ICE AGE for all earths problems. I know we should blame the schools for not teaching the difference between natural occurrences from a scam.

People did you not learn any thing in science in school, OH I forgot, you are an over educated collage idiot, or you were a school drop out, this is not the problem, it is just that there are to many followers and not enough leaders who can think for them selves, they only follow every SHIT PEDDLERS (BETTER KNOWN AS A SCAMMER) that comes along. Lets look at it this way people get scammed every day because they can’t think for them selves, NO matter how many times they have been told, they still believe the shit peddler. (SCAMMER)

OSLO (Reuters) – A thaw of Iceland’s ice caps in coming decades caused by climate change may trigger more volcanic eruptions by removing a vast weight and freeing magma from deep below ground, scientists said on Friday.

They said there was no sign that the current eruption from below the Eyjafjallajokull glacier that has paralysed flights over northern Europe was linked to global warming. The glacier is too small and light to affect local geology.

“Our work suggests that eventually there will be either somewhat larger eruptions or more frequent eruptions in Iceland in coming decades,” said Freysteinn Sigmundsson, a vulcanologist at the University of Iceland. Continue reading

Economic indicators in these metros have gone from bad to worse, with no sign of recovery.

Miami boasts a popular South Beach club scene, Art Deco Architecture, and perhaps the best Cuban food in the country. But residents don’t have much else to celebrate.

More than three years after the economy started its downward slide, the Miami metro area, like a handful of Sun Belt cities, still hasn’t begun to recover. Median home prices in Miami have fallen 38% since its market peaked in the second quarter of 2007; the city’s 11% unemployment rate is above the national average and has grown more than most of the 40 cities we surveyed.

Cities in the “Sand States” of Florida, California, Arizona and Nevada, where overbuilding was rampant, are also in trouble, claiming nine of the top 10 spots in our list of cities in free fall. In Las Vegas, Riverside, Calif., and Phoenix, median home prices have fallen 50%, 44% and 37% from their respective peaks. Jobs are vanishing. Though country-wide, employers added 162,00 jobs last month, Riverside gained 13% fewer jobs in February 2010 (the latest numbers available by metro) than it did the same month three years earlier. Tampa, Fla., saw a 10% drop, and Los Angeles added 9% fewer jobs over the same time period. Continue reading

Texas high school’s ultra-pricey stadium

By Bob L. I have [inserted] comments through out this article, Pricey Stadium.
Thur. April 15, 2010

I have all way been against spending more money on NON Educational programs, but it seams that these school districts would rather sink the tax payers money into Black holes that do nothing for Education, they say we have to pay for the best Teachers, well they are not getting what they are paying for, if they were then Education would not be in the condition it is in today. Or could it be that the teachers are sending the children home with home work that should have been taught in class, where if a child had a problem they could have asked the teacher for help, but no they want the child to ask their parents who don’t have time for their kids or their Education.

They want to know why student drop out of school, why don’t they ask the student not some one who thinks they know why, my opinion as a past student, is when you teach the same thing from the Sixth grade to the twelfth grade over and over until you get tired of it, there is know chance to prepare for a future in the work force, not all are going to collage, and now the Government is chasing jobs out of this Country, so what is collage going to teach that will open up jobs for every one coming out after graduating,  there is not enough job for the ones graduating now.

  1. Manufacturing all most gone.
  2. Communication all computerized.
  3. Computer jobs over taught.
  4. Lawyers every corner.
  5. Doctors NO GP s all specialist.

Now what is left, that is the big SIXTY FOUR thousand dollar question, ask the Government.

Obama election-year jobs agenda stalls in Congress

By Bob L.
April 11, 2010

What are the Democrats doing, trying to make the American people think that they got smart, well I for one do not think that they are, it just  looks like they are just thinking that this will save their ass with the American people. If any one believes this, then they are just as dumb as the Democrats, they didn’t think any thing about how much it cost the tax payers on health care, or about making them criminals (will this law be a misdemeanor or a felony) if you  don’t buy health insurance,  so what makes you think that they care about saving the tax payer money now, this is nothing but trying to save their ass (or their jobs).

Here is a good question, has the Government said how much it will cost the American people, or what is in this Health bill that they have rewritten sense it was passed in to law, or should I say who now has to take this or what got put back in to this health bill.

I was under the impression that when the bill was passed it was the law and could not be tampered with unless it went back to the house and the senate where the whole process started all over again, and the other bill was null and void until a new bill could be drawn up, other words the law could not be enforceable. Now you have this jobs bill.

I don’t know about you but I think there are a lot of  laws broken in Washington D.C. in the last TEN YEARS, and why aren’t these law being enforced, or is this where the corruption starts?

We have the FBI, Attorney Generals who are suppose to be the best at enforcing the laws, so why is it when Government breaks the law they look the other way.

Vulnerable Democrats are tiptoeing on health care

AP
By KRISTEN WYATT, Associated Press Writer
Thu Apr 8

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – First-term Rep. Betsy Markey is convinced that once people learn what’s in President Barack Obama’s new health care overhaul law, they’ll support it.

But it’s not a message she was eager to carry in person to her constituents in Republican-leaning eastern Colorado. During Congress’ two-week Easter break, she reserved any discussion of health care reform for conference calls, an op-ed piece and an appearance at a small-town Rotary Club — all small-bore outreach.

After the raucous, angry town halls of last summer, Markey steered clear of massive gatherings.

She was not alone. Tough votes for Obama’s health care plan have further complicated the re-election prospects of dozens of already vulnerable freshman and second-term Democrats. There’s even a chance the party could lose control of one or both houses in the midterm elections. Continue reading

Nearly half of US households escape fed income tax

By Bob L.
Thur. April 8, 2010

This all sounds good on paper but the real truth is there is other taxes that they don’t talk about, I all way laughed when they say how much you take home, but they fail to admit that there are more taxes that the low income people are paying, like state, and city, and in some cases County taxes.

You see the Federal Government never takes into account what people pay in taxes there, they talk about it but never figure in how much of a tax load the American people really carry, they only think how much they can take from you to pay for their pet projects, so the low income people don’t get away from paying taxes.

Recession, new tax credits have nearly half of US households paying no federal income tax

ap

Stephen Ohlemacher, Associated Press Writer
Wednesday April 7, 2010

WASHINGTON (AP) — Tax Day is a dreaded deadline for millions, but for nearly half of U.S. households it’s simply somebody else’s problem.

About 47 percent will pay no federal income taxes at all for 2009. Either their incomes were too low, or they qualified for enough credits, deductions and exemptions to eliminate their liability. That’s according to projections by the Tax Policy Center, a Washington research organization.

Most people still are required to file returns by the April 15 deadline. The penalty for skipping it is limited to the amount of taxes owed, but it’s still almost always better to file: That’s the only way to get a refund of all the income taxes withheld by employers. Continue reading

SUPREME COURT NOTEBOOK: Looking abroad for tips

By Bob L.
April 1, 2010

Is this another move to turn the United States over to Foreign control, it is time to tell them that this Country is this Country and to plant their asses right there where they belong and keep their noses buried in the U.S. Constitution and no where else, and if they don’t know their jobs then it is time to get ridge of them. Our place is not in foreign courts or laws.

This is the United States and the law of the United States is the U.S. Constitution, this Constitution was drawn up because they did not want this Country to fall under the same control as what they left.

And I say it again IF YOU CAN’T DO THE JOB THEN GET OUT and let some one who knows the job.

WASHINGTON – The debate over whether the Supreme Court should look to foreign law when interpreting the Constitution is ultimately irrelevant because justices can read whatever they want when they are formulating their opinions, Justice Stephen Breyer said Wednesday.

Breyer said there are those who complain about the high court potentially looking at what other countries do when they are resolving cases involving U.S. law.

“I say that’s a wonderful political debate. It’s good, but it’s pretty irrelevant because when I do read things, I can read what I want,” Breyer said. Continue reading
