Goldman director’s wild parties riles co-op board…

Translation: Richard Kimball needs to spend tens of thousands just to get a date.

apparently it’s another case of a wall street bankster managing to convince people that he is going to be an above board good citizen, until he’s not.

Kimball should invite some NYPD so they can enjoy their pension money.

Massive staff exodus from Obama White House likely not an omen of good things to come …


More senior staff including defense secretary Robert Gates, senior adviser David Axelrod, and national security adviser James Jones leave their jobs.

HFT as seen on 60 minutes.  Not much of a CBS person but this was fairly informative.  Senator Kaufman and John Stewart’s brother.

Actually I think Mr Obama should appoint Mr Krugman to replace Summers. Then the Keynes Myth would be debunked sooner and all the banksters would be jailed earlier.

Obama’s ZH wet dream economic advisers: Marc Faber, Max Keiser, Tyler Durdens, Jim Willie, William Black, etc.

Never ever ever happen.

That or they would all be taking dirt naps inside 48 hours.

Now back to our regularly scheduled week of PMs to da Moon.

Or da Buzz LightYear Quote!

The $100 porterhouse story is a gross underestimate.

John Hussman obviously understands the situation: 

“The short-term tendency in such conditions tends toward small advances to repeated marginal new highs, often followed abruptly by a steep ‘air pocket’ that wipes out weeks or months of progress in the span of a few days.”

that foto of the woman throwing up her hands to avoid facing the naked man in her midst pretty much says it all.   wonder what she’s going to do when she discovers that the emperor is not wearing any clothes either?

Grass fed beef is superior in flavor to corn fed beef. Perhaps this will give those cattle raisers a boost?

“King Corn” is an interesting documentary that follows how corn percolates through the economy.

Among other things, a vet in the movie claims that a corn diet is actually bad for steers and that they would die from the effects of a high corn diet if it weren’t for being slaughtered first. From an economic perspective, the movie also shines light on other larger roles corn plays in our economy and thus hints at the ramefications of a much higher corn commodity price.

I don’t eat meat that often, but when I do I prefer grass fed cows preferably from my home state. Porthouse is one of my favorite cuts.
