Little list of some headlines if you are just coming to the table.


Wall Street tumbles amid global sell-off

JOE BEL BRUNO and TIM PARADIS AP Business Writers- Wall Street suffered through another traumatic session Monday, with the Dow Jones industrials plunging as much as 800 points and setting a new record for a one-day point drop as investors despaired that the credit crisis would take a heavy toll around the world. The Dow also fell below 10,000 for the first time since 2004, and all the major indexes fell about 5 percent.

The catalyst for the selling was the growing realization that the Bush administration's $700 billion rescue plan and steps taken by other governments won't work quickly to unfreeze the credit markets. Moreover, investors are increasingly unnerved by the paralysis in the credit markets that has started to affect companies trying to borrow for acquisitions or just to conduct their daily operations.

Well, this problem has not completely, and I emphasize completely, filtered down to the level of the average consumer. But I think we will feel its effects more and more in the coming weeks. Rising unemployment, which we have been seeing, is the first indicator, small businesses starting to close their doors on a mass level, then rampant inflation. Keep in mind, cooler heads will prevail, this could actually be a time for a smart investor to make some money, in the long term. But if grabbing on to your guns and God isn't doing it for you anymore don't fret none you always have the Obamessiah.


Key Obama adviser called for US military invasion of denuded Israel

by Israel Insider staff-Samantha Power, a key Obama adviser, called in 2002 for billions of dollars in US military aid to Israel to be invested instead in Palestine and in a "mammoth" US-backed military force to impose a solution to the "Palestine-Israeli situation" on the pretext of preventing Rwanda-like genocide.

The Irish-born Power, pegged as a leading candidate for a top foreign policy position in a prospective Obama administration, perhaps NSC Advisor or even Secretary of State, left the Obama campaign after she was quoted as calling Hillary Clinton a "monster."

But that dismissal did not reflect a reduction in her influence on Obama's thinking. And when it comes to the Mideast, her views of Israel and American Jews appear to resemble those of Obama's democratic rival. Read more...

How do you go from fighting against terrorist states like Palestine, to giving them military aid and money against our ally, Israel? You are getting a glimpse of an Obama Presidency where the lunatics run the asylum. His appointees to the various cabinet positions are going to be more dangerous than Biden and him combined. Plus you throw in a Democratic controlled Congress. Whew, we are in for a world of hurt over the next few years.

Russia's warships head for exercise with Venezuelan navy

Michael Evans, Defence Editor, Times Online- Russia displayed its military strength in the Mediterranean yesterday after warships heading to Venezuela passed through the Strait of Gibraltar in the second deployment of Russian naval vessels in the waterway since the Cold War.

The nuclear-powered missile cruiser Peter the Great, accompanied by the Admiral Chabanenko, an anti-submarine destroyer, as well as a reconnaissance vessel and a support ship, are destined for a maritime exercise with the Venezuelan navy.

Are we seeing a pattern yet? I heard a great joke from Governor Huckabee, he stated that,"This might be the first time the victor in a Presidential election will demand a recount of the votes." Sorry to all the Obamination supporters out there, you cry about Palin's lack of experience? There aren't any courses at Columbia or Harvard titled, "How to dig your way out of a Global mess 101." And you sure as hell don't get the experience necessary to deal with Putin on the mean streets of Chicago running with your Community Activist posse. Simply put we are screwed.

Well this is what we have come to. Not that a part of me doesn't think he didn't deserve it, but let the courts handle this. Believe me heads will role and his will be one of them.
