The debt is rising faster than the Mississippi after snow melting rain storm. But the nice thing is we can print our way out of that. Sure it kills a few more trees, but hey it is all for the common good. I just hope the environmentalists don't think of them trees.
But summer is coming. It should be a great time to go to the beach. They probably won't be as crowded this year with it costing more to get there. Tourism in general will be down as more people take staycations. Fewer dollars flowing in the market. I wonder what that will mean. Probably big profits for the fat-cats on Wall Street. Yeah, we gotta tax them so its more fair. Damn Fat Cats.
Gosh, this whole economics thing with the interconnectedness is really complicated. I sure am glad the brains in the white house are on top of this. Aren't you?
Yeah, I am a sarcastic cuss.

Romer, an economics professor at the University of California (Berkeley) before taking the key admin post, did not respond to repeated calls to her office.

Anyone care to venture that tomorrows unemployment numbers are going to be worse than the 9.6% predicted?

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan pledged on Monday to do her best to consider "every case impartially, modestly, with commitment to principle and in accordance with law" if appointed to the nation's highest court.
Speaking on the first day of her confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kagan said the court must ensure that "our government never oversteps its proper bounds or violates the rights of individuals."
What is going on? I have been so enthralled with the WorldCup action like the rest of the US that I just found out that Nathan Lane has been nominated to be on the supreme court!
A little makeup, a blue suit and a clever play on the name "Elena" -- "Lane". But really, this is a little too much. When are the politicians in Washington going to get serious?

Its annoying to me that every news/sports broadcast I see is touting how enamored the US is with this World Cup and 'soccer is finally taking hold' in the US. I am just not seeing it. Seems like someone is trying to move The Overton Window.
So, faxing these talking points to every news outlet in the states must have come out of the FIFA 'technology' budget. Of course, there wasn't anything left for instant replay.
Only a couple months until the real football season starts.

NEW ORLEANS — A tropical storm slamming into parts of Mexico isn't taking aim at the massive Gulf oil spill - for now - though any system can quickly change course and send cleanup efforts grinding to a halt.
The AP is dying for a disaster. All is well in the Gulf, cleanup efforts are at full steam under the direction of the B.O. administration (it stinks). But the AP is teasing us with the "for now" headline. This headline is saying to me 'Stay tuned, we are relevant and we are telling you so.' So I am 'staying tuned' -- to the Drudge Report.

Masseuse's claims read like R-rated vice presidential fan fiction
JUNE 24--In a bizarre statement to police, the Oregon woman who claims that Al Gore fondled and groped her during a massage session described the former Vice President as a giggling "crazed sex poodle" who gave a "come hither" look before pouncing on her in a Portland hotel suite.
Naw, sex walrus.

Karl Rove was not visible and later they snuck him in a back door and had him do his signing in the children’s section. The smiling staff was all around his area. The rest of us waited in line, next to Anne Rice’s Vampire books, a fitting place to wait. The dialogue in the line was about, Rove, Sarah Palin and some tea party stories. Amongst these admirers of Rove were undercover pinks and veterans for peace.
In this exclusive video, we see what went down in New Mexico that fateful day.
