full-on depression or deep recession?

john mccain could not care less what you call it. it won’t effect him either way.

john mccain doesn’t like it when people talk about the economy. he would rather call american voters socialists when they say that they support Obama. but, john mccain doesn’t have to worry much about the economy because win or lose, he and his wealthy wife have 8 houses and 50 million dollars of assets to fall back on. but of course, john and cindy mccain would not want to pay an additional 4% tax on their earnings since they always make well over 250,000.00 dollars per year.

together john and cindy mccain made over 6.5 million in 2007. the average american makes less than 34 thousand per year and takes home about two thousand per month. when you take the top 5% of the richest americans out of the equation, the average salary drops to 26 thousand per month with take home pay of about one thousand four hundred per month or 700.00 every two weeks. that equates to about 12.00/hour.

john and cindy mccain make about 541,000.00 per month, which would equate to about 1591.00 per hour each.

to put things in perspective, that twice monthly 700.00 paycheck you rely on for you and your family’s survival for two weeks would keep john and cindy mccain within their lifestyle for approximately 1/2 hour. of course, john and cindy mccain and their wealthy friends don’t want Obama to win. they don’t want to pay 4% more in federal taxes. how could they possibly afford it?

thanks to right wing republicans and john mccain for setting me straight

i wasn’t aware that supporting a candidate who wants tax fairness for 95% of americans and tax increases for the other 5% who make over 250.000.00 per year would make me a socialist. so that must mean that since i actually believe in government of the people, by the people and for the people that must make me a socialist too? someone should have told Abe Lincoln that the government is really for the rich and friends of john mccain’s right wing beliefs.

GOP and McCain come unravelled

you can stick a fork in the GOP and McCain/Palin now. they are definitely done. when you combine Colin Powell’s endorsement along with Warren Buffet’s that is what is called running the table on the two greatest minds to tackle our two biggest problems- war and economy.

it’s official- john mccain is crazier than a rabid chipmunk in a rainstorm…

and for the love of god – will  someone please have the decency to fill out a prescription for some lithium for this guy before he embarrasses himself in public again!  and those eyes of his. is it my imagination or does he blink like the bug that will smith chased down in the original Men In Black?

dow will bottom at 7500-hover-santa claus to 9000 in december-then bounce at obama’s inauguration to 11000

humans- ya have to love em don’t ya? hope springs eternal and confidence always returns eventually. gonna be a rough few months though. better stock up on Jack Daniels, toilet paper, bottled water and cigarettes if you smoke. (useful to trade if you don’t) bullets, gunpowder, shell casings, protein bars and firewood. time to hunker. if you know how to smoke meat that could be useful too.

how do i know these numbers? no training. don’t even know much about the market. just a feeling that bears get. keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best kids. and remember as red/green says “we’re all in this together.”

on 6-26-08 i predicted the dow would drop to 7500 this year in my post entitled BIG MONEY TALKS. looks like it will happen soon. what do i win? pie in the face most likely.

i was john malkovic mad about republicans messing with montanans right to vote but now…

sometimes i can be a very, very bad bear. that is when i get a little excited about things and lose my temper and then picnic tables and dumpsters go flying. it’s not very constructive and the park rangers make me pick it all up and fix the tables so it wastes a lot of time. but, sometimes when i get mad at the right things it can feel cathartic ( that is when bears relax a little)

it is time to get back on track and try to be a good neighbor again so… now that Obama has taken a nice easy coasting two digit lead and i can enjoy watching McCain’s neck artery start to throb while he develops an aneurism over his slipping numbers and Montana’s legislative race is beginning to take shape with lots of blue leads it is time to daydream about my favorite subject- enacting legislation to regulate reasonable terms for pay-day and vehicle title loans. i look around at the economy and think to myself, i bet those guys are rubbing their hands in glee at the hordes of out of work montanans who will surely come to them for 650% loans. Last legislative session Democrat Rep. John Parker’s bill (house bill 29) to rein in these slime-devils was held up in committee by republican Scott Mendenhall who called it anti-business. (anti-devil more like) this isn’t a business – it’s a license to enslave people to poverty and should be brought down to at least 36% (the limit set by the pentagon to keep these slime-devils from skinning our soldiers alive) Oregon, New Hampshire and Ohio have all reined in these guys. Montana has one of the worst allowable percentage rates in the country at 650%. this is obscene and not defensible by reasonable people. so, who will pick up the mantle of this worthy cause in the next legislature? i don’t know. i’m asking. does anyone know? meanwhile let’s try and see if we can help Stan Voreyer get elected to remove mr. Mendenhall, friend of the slime-devils.
