Wall Street is dead.

21 September, 2008

I just heard about this on the BBC, though this is AP copy [emphasis mine]

“The Federal Reserve said Sunday it had granted a request by the country’s last two major investment banks — Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley — to change their status to bank holding companies.”

In under two weeks, Wall Street in NYC has ceased to be the investment banking capital of the world.

Let me say that again:

NYC has ceased to be

the investment banking capital

of the world.

Related new, the Public Debt:

09/21/2008 $9,664,631,803,259.07
minus 09/30/2000 $5,674,178,209,886.86

equals $ in the “red” over 8 years.

that’s 3,990,453,593,372.21 divided by 303,824,640 people

equals $13,134.07 eachbabies included!!! – and that’s just the –change– over 8 years.

Is it really any wonder that some people want receipts from voting machines?

“For as in absolute governments the king is law, so in free countries the law ought to be king; and there ought to be no other.” –Thomas Paine

“A government of laws, and not of men.” — John Adams

From CNN:

Aides to Gov. Sarah Palin won’t comply with subpoenas issued by state lawmakers investigating the firing of Alaska’s former public safety commissioner, since Palin “has declined to participate” in the probe, her attorney general says.

–snip—

Attorney General Talis Colberg, a Palin appointee, told the investigation’s manager in a letter released Wednesday. “However, our clients are also loyal employees subject to the supervision of the governor.”

Loyal to whom?

Loyal to the law as set in the constitution they swore to uphold?

Or loyal to a person?

This is a nation of laws. I would die to defend that. Would you?

Welcome, new citizen!
