How The Market Tanked

Subprime mortgages (and all mortgages, really) are a fraction of the current problem. The bailout would have been enough to buy out every subprime mortgage in foreclosure across the country. In fact, it was enough to do that several times over. So why not do that?

The reason is that the purpose of the bailout (at least as Treasury Secretary Paulson sees it) isn't to stop mortgage foreclosures, but to save the banks. And the banks have some self-inflicted problems that make those mortgages an afterthought.

For example, the wonderful credit default swap. In essence, credit default swaps are (or were) nothing but insurance policies for loans. And yet in 2007 the total number of credit default swaps traded far exceeded the value of all loans. In fact, it may have touched $70 trillion dollars, which puts it above the gross domestic product of the entire planet.

We Have A 21st Century President

How Nice Is It To Have Someone In Office That Understands Technology And Is Not An Anti-Intellectual? It's Refreshing To To Think That We Will Not Have People Proud Of Ignorance In Charge Anymore.

It's A New Day!

I went to sleep last night
Tired from the fight
I've been fighting for tomorrow
All my life
Yea I woke up this morning
Feeling brand new
'Cause the dreams that I've been dreaming
Have finally came true

It's a new day 5x

It's been a long time coming
Up the mountain kept runnin'
Songs of freedom kept hummin'
Channeling Harriet Tubman

Kennedy, Lincoln, and King
We gotta manifest that dream
It feels like we're swimming upstream
It feels like we're stuck in between
A rock and a hard place,
We've been through the heartaches
And lived through the darkest days

If you and I made it this far,
Well then hey, we can make it all the way
And they said no we can't
And we said yes we can
Remember it's you and me together

I woke up this morning
Feeling alright
I've been fightin' for tomorrow
All my life
Yea, I woke up this morning
Feeling brand new
Cause the dreams that I've been dreaming
Have finally came true

It's a new day 5x

It's been a long time waitin'
Waiting for this moment
Been a long time praying
Praying for this moment

We hope for this moment
And now that we own it
For life I will hold it
And I ain't gonna let it go

It's for fathers, our brothers,
Our friends who fought for freedom
Our sisters, our mothers,
Who died for us to be in this moment

Stop and cherish this moment
Stop and cherish this time

It's time for U-nity
For us and we
That's you and me together

I woke up this morning
Feeling brand new
Cause the dreams that I've been dreaming
Finally came true
Yea, I woke up this morning
Feeling alright

'Cause we weren't fighting for nothing
And the soldiers weren't fighting
For nothing
No, Martin was dreaming for nothing
And Lincoln didn't change it for nothing
And children weren't crying for nothing

It's a new day
It's a new day
A new day
It's a new day
It's a new day!


Bionic Eyes!

According to Government Technology, engineers at the University of Washington have developed contact lenses with integrated circuitry. Although the lenses have only been tested on animals, researchers are working on having electronic lenses overlay a display over a person's visual field without impairing sight. Researchers hope that the lenses, once completed, will allow users to zoom in on distant objects and see useful facts. Future applications might allow drivers and pilots to see their direction and speed projected across their view or to surf the Web without a monitor. The circuit components would be powered by integrated solar cells and a wireless radio-frequency receiver.

This Is Fantastic! I Can't Wait To Sign Up For These! The Zoom Option Sounds Wonderful, Much Better Than My Current Zoom; Moving My Head Closer To The Object.

What To Do Now?

So Now I Have Nothing To Research Anymore. I Do However Look Forward To All Of The Backbiting Stories Coming Out Of The Republican Party Now.

My Problem With Reading The New Stories Is, How Frighteningly Close We Were To Having A Complete Disaster On Our Hands With A VP Palin.

Don't Know What Countries Are A Part Of NAFTA! Doesn't Know That Africa Is A Continent! Are You Fucking Kidding Me! I've Heard Of Low-Information Voters But Low-Information Candidates Is Too Much!

Country First My Ass, The Assholes That Picked Her Should Be Tried For Treason!

It Boils Down To This; The Republican Party Isn't About "Small Government": It's About Socialism For Corporations And Rich White People.

And As Lincoln Said, "Republicans Are For Both The Man And The Dollar, But In Case Of Conflict The Man Before The Dollar." I Think They Need To Go To Remedial Conservatism Classes.
