NFL Fantasy Week 13

Ok, I managed to squeak by with a win last week – as I predicted based on the matchups, it was my lowest scoring week of the year – just 99 points.  But I made it to my Fantasy Football League’s playoffs undefeated at 12-0. Another tough test this week though, because both Reggie Bush […]

Somali Pirates Buy Citigroup!

Just kidding – I think!  I saw a reference to Somali Pirates and CitiGroup in the Daily Reckoning today and couldn’t resist copying the concept here.  Just thought it would make a cool headline I guess. But then I got to thinking….  What if?  What if the government hadn’t spent another $302 billion – yes, […]

Bush sucks Part 1

I don’t have time to get into all of the reasons that George W. Bush will go down in history as one of the worst Presidents ever, but the Knoxville News Sentinel captured part of it in an editorial today.  His mind boggling deficits. In case you’ve forgotten, we had a surplus (fake though it […]

NFL Fantasy Week 12

11 weeks have gone by in the NFL so far this year, and I’m lucky enough to be 11-0 in my 12 team PPR fantasy league.  I don’t know how, because both Steven Jackson and Reggie Bush (my leading scorers through the first 7 weeks) have been out since week 8…. Anyway, our playoffs start […]

Inflation? You aint seen nothing yet!

I ran across this in today’s Daily Reckoning.  It’s a snip from Bill Bonner’s article titled The Fall of Wall Street: Innocent Frauds and Armed Robberies It’s good stuff!  Please take a minute to read it because it explains a lot in just a few paragraphs. gk From the day of its founding in 1913, […]

What moves the stock market?

I don’t know what news people are seeing that encourages them to buy stocks.  I meant to post this last night but didn’t get the time, so here goes. The DJIA went up over 500 points yesterday and I’ll be damned if I can figure out why.  I kept an eye on the news headlines […]

Vols lose to Wyoming?

I knew the Vols were bad this year, that they have played some of the worst football I’ve ever seen from a major program, that their play calling on offense was horrid (Hey Fulmer – play Madden sometime!) but even I didn’t expect them to lose to a bad Wyoming team.  At home. Here’s something […]

News Headlines on Friday

I thought the headlines on Friday were interesting.  There was ZERO good news about the economy, and all the economic and earnings reports were worse than expected.  But the stock market went up.  Makes no sense to me. Here are the top headlines from Reuters Business news as of 12:57pm (ET) yesterday. GM, Ford losses […]
