somewhere in NYC right now, on the top floor of an office building, one of the CEO's (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan, other) is sitting, looking out over the city, sipping his brandy, and saying "SUCKERS!"

They say stocks usually go up before we get out of the recession. Historically 6 months about. It's going to be bumpy but I hope we are at bottom. I hear the fed govt. is letting you deduct the sales tax paid on a 2009 car purchase.

Not only that, I hear there's a new deduction of up to $4500 for any vehicle you trade in that gets less than 19 mpg! I just traded in 2 gas guzzlers

Obama is turning out to be either incredibly lucky, or incredibly smart.

Or maybe it just goes to show us all that genuine goodwill and an irrepressibly positive attitude is the real way to lift all boats.

Yeah, why pay people to dig build sandcastles on the Jersey Shore (e.g. bail out failing industries) when you can instead pay people to torch their cars ?

While we're at it, we could stimulate the building industry by paying people to torch their houses.
