Cincinatti Bengals Football

Just had to post this here.  It’s a quote from PigskinAddiction.com from a story about the week 8 games.  Great site for humorous takes on fantasy football. I don’t know where to begin. The Bengals are the most balanced team in the league. The offense sucks, the defense sucks, special teams sucks, coaching sucks, and […]

NFL Week 8

Just a few thoughts on week 8 in the NFL regarding fantasy football.  The people I’ll talk about are mainly those I have on my team, or those who stand out to me in some way. If anyone needs a one week fill in at RB3, give Cedric Benson a try.  He’s playing at Houston […]

The home sales up dirty little secret

It was all over the headlines yesterday – existing home sales rose 5.5% (seasonally adjusted) from August.  The median price dropped too – down 9% to about $191K.  Good news right?  It IS good news except for one minor detail absolutely no one reported.  Here it is straight from the press release that everyone’s story […]

Getting a loan

I’ve read many stories in the past few weeks about how hard it is to get a loan now.  All the stories are saying the same thing – banks aren’t lending, people can’t get loans, so the economy is tanking because people can’t borrow money to buy things. Bullshit.  This past summer I had to […]

Wow! What a ride!

The DJIA dropped another 675 points today, bringing it down to 8579.  Exactly one year ago, it was at 14,164 – its’ all time high.  Aren’t you glad you pulled all your money out of the market last year? What’s that you say?  You didn’t move to cash because you’re in this for the long […]

Bailout Pork – Just Say NO!

I ran across something very interesting today regarding the bailout bill that the Senate passed last night.  Here’s a story on Marketwatch.com that’s the tip of the iceberg.  It’s titled Can the ‘William Tell amendment’ save the bailout? Here’s the first part of it: There can’t have been a more ridiculous bit of legal fluff […]

Stop the bail out – call your Representatives now!

The Senate passed a sweeping who-knows-how-much-it’ll-cost bailout bill tonight, but it’s not too late to stop it.  Call, email, and fax your Representatives now! To give you some idea of the magnitude of this bill, it has morphed from a 3 page proposal from Paulson (which also sucked raw eggs) to the 451 page novel […]

Idiot Senators

The Senate tonight passed the “Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act of 2007″.   Why should you care?  Because it’s the single largest, most intrusive, most budget busting bill ever passed. In case you’re wondering, the “Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act of 2007″ is the name of the Senate version of […]
