10/7    Ever Drink and Blog and feel stupid the next morning?
        GOOG has the answer:
        http://tinyurl.com/3ovvzq
        \_ I once txt-ed msgs while I was really really wasted.  They were
           hilarious -- the English was slightly more coherent than the
           average psb wall.
           \- you missed the entire era of "drink and su" and "drink and
              rwall" --psb

10/6    Financial advice from our good 'ol Ben Stein:
        http://finance.yahoo.com/expert/article/yourlife/112984
        \_ Finally a reason to agree with Ben Stein, at least mostly.
           \_ A broken clock is right twice a day.  I'm sure Stein supported
              most of the things he's now decrying.  -tom
              \_ ob the asspounding he was getting for the last year or
                 so on finance segments
              \_ Total agreement. -pp

10/6    Stock prices are really low. Is now a good time to buy stocks?
        GOOG is only $350 now. What do you guys think?
        \_ I think it's going to go lower.
        \_ If you're going to invest in stocks right now, your primary
           consideration should be that the companies you invest in
           should be companies which are likely to survive or thrive in
           an extended economic downturn.  My guess would be that this
           market is going to go down more before it goes up, but I
           wouldn't bother trying to time it; invest in good companies
           and you'll be OK.  -tom
        \_ like tom wrote, just see how TM did relative to the Nikkei 225 from
           it's peak.  use http://finance.yahoo.com.
           its peak.  use http://finance.yahoo.com.  ob TM != GOOG, but someone find
           a better example.

        ambiguously gay and I'm ethnically Indian but I prefer to

10/7    To the idiots who think the Ayers story is interesting:
        What Ayers did was a generation ago.  He went to jail for a long ass
        time.  He payed his debt and understands that when he was a kid
        he was wrong.  Now he is a respected Chicago professor who worked
        with a legitimate group whose mission was to get money to try
        to improve Chicago schools.  Maybe you don't think Ayers should
        have been able to rehabilitate himself, but isn't that the point
        of justice.  People do wrong, we punish them and make them
        understand why it was wrong.  Then if those people come back to
        society and do the right thing we are supposed to accept them
        back as valuable members of our community.  That's what makes the
        justice system work.
        \_ He's never recanted.  AFAICT he's never spent a day in jail for the
           bombings.  He has no regrets, thinks he should have done more.
             "So, would Mr. Ayers do it all again, he is asked? 'I don't want
             to discount the possibility,' he said."

           Note that this nytimes article appeared on 9/11/2001.
           \_ He did turn himself in.  I was wrong, charges were dropped
              because of prosecutorial misconduct.  And you need to read
              his rebuttal to that article.

           \- look even if guilt by association isnt 1/r^2 but 1/r,
              CKEATING is so much closer to JMCCAIN, not to mention
              his crimes so much more contemporary to their involvement
              and the nature of the relationship directly involves what
              he was on the hook for, the strength of the guilt by assn
              charge is a whole lot stronger in this case ... not to
              mention its relevance to the current financial mess
              [regulation, moral hazard, regulatory arbitrage, lobbying-for-
              loopholes, money influence in politics etc]. "thanks hillary".
              \_ ob why do you love the terrerists?
                 \- CKEATING is a financial terrorist ... that's what he
                    was doing w.r.t. to the FSLIC. might be good to execute
                    a few finance people to "find new ways to motivate them"
                    against MORAL HAZARD. since it is highly likely you were
                    "young" during this episode, spend the <5min to read

10/7    Prop 8 proponents pouring millions into it, these bigoted assholes
        might get it to pass -- go to http://www.eqca.org and donate $$$
        Don't let prop 8 pass!
        \_ my wife got a flyer supporting prop 8 at work.  it was from a
           church goer, all in Chinese, and pretty slick.
           \_ Interestingly the poll shows that all of the pro-prop 8 movement
              is coming from young people.

10/7    OBAMA DRIVES AWAY CAPITAL & REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT WITH HIGHER
        TAXES. Get rid of capital gains, lower business and corporate taxes,get
        rid of democrats in congress they are a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!CONTINUED
        BAILOUTS WILL CAUSE MARKET CRASH. OBAMA WILL HURT OUR ECONOMY NOT
        HELP IT The reason companies are outsourcing is to SAVE MONEY! Your
        out of context spin is politics as usual smear, divide, and conquer,
        chicago politics at its best. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!! WHERE DID YOU GET
        THAT FREE TRADE IS A BAD THING? How do you think our economy is going
        to grow if we do not export...right now with low dollar exports are
        up that is a good thing. Guess what OBAMA and his imperial socialist
        elitists want to TAX AMERICA TO DEATH AND CLOSE OUR BORDERS. 98%
        of all taxes come from the RICH, oh I guess it is now a bad thing
        to be rich. You will kill AMERICA and spread misery across our lands
        you fools you fools. Yes, and we are going to send Biden out to get
        all those off shore accounts. Well guess what; if we LOWER TAXES then
        maybe that just might attract business like it did in IRELAND which
        has one of the lowest corporate taxes in the WORLD!!!! THE RICH WILL
        LEAVE AMERICA IF IT BECOMES A SOCIALIST STATE. GOOD BYE 401K's because
        there is a new BOSS MAN IN TOWN AND HE WILL NATIONALIZE EVERYTHING. THE
        TRAP WAS SET WHEN THE DEMO'S PUSHED US INTO THIS 700 BILLION BAILOUT
        FROM THEIR MESS THEY CREATED...OH and Polozi is going to go after
        the criminals that caused all of this, yeah right!!!! OBAMA=SOCIALIST
        AGENDA If you think this financial crisis is bad, just wait because
        if OBAMA is elected you will see change alright. But it won?t be
        the kind of change everyone hoped for because the LIBERAL plan will
        not work. OBAMA-CALIFORNIA is on the verge of bankruptcy because of
        ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS!!!!! Washington Post Democrats Were Wrong on
        Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - 9 hours ago Maxine Waters insisted, "we
        do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac, and in particular at Fannie Mae,
        under the outstanding leadership of Mr. Frank Raines"? ... OBAMA-will
        allow the idiots from http://move-on.com to take over our country. We can
        not afford OBAMA and the idiots like PALOZI or FRANKS- you know the
        democrat that ran the house finance committee to get a hold of US TAX
        PAYER DOLLARS. ANYMORE!!!!! OBAMA-there isn?t any money left for YOUR
        big spending plans!!!!!!!!! ELECTING OBAMA=DEPRESSION. IS THAT WHAT
        YOU WANT?????? THINK ABOUT IT.  UNLEASH THE FURY.

10/7    Was it just me or did McCain's "us" gesture look like the
        classic motion for signifying a jerkoff? And, um, where
        did he go when the debate wrapped up? He just disappeared.
        We were expecting that he'd at least have an interview
        lined up with Fox, but nope-- just vanished.
        \_ that's not true, "my friend".
           \_ Really? Where'd he go? He shook hands for a bit,
              then bam, gone. Obama stuck around shaking hands
              and taking pictures for a long time.
              \_ Who'd want to shake hands with him after he jerked off?

10/7    If the CSUA sponsored a political debate on the election
        and the major political issues, which Soda Personalities
        would you like to see argue the Democratic and Republican
        positions?
        \_ hard to tell, since all the republicans are anonymous cowards.  -tom
        \_ Based on what?  Knowledge of the issues?  Debating skill?
           Entertaining speaker?  Inadvertent entertainment?
