Thanks for the link... he says: "Russia does not need to worry about the effect of war on the Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline or losing its European Union membership bid over a war in the Caucasus" but I don't think Russia has bid for EU membership - that can't be right...<br><br>km<br><br>
"pleasant mystery" and my reference to Barbara Bush was written with "tongue in cheek" it just reminded me of something Mrs Pearls around my neck would say..... like her "pleasant caring remarks" about the Katrina victims, Her remarks have stuck in my craw since the day she uttered them ...... rerun if interested Barbara<br>Let a few more banks tumble and perhaps a light will come on in Bush's Head about this "pleasant mystery" .....after Katrina.....Ike was sure handled differently. Bush and Company [IMO] have spent like drunken sailors during the last 8 years..... with warning lights regarding a failing economy blinking in every direction their reign and War have cost Americans and those in other countries dearly in both lives and money, and most in that administration will leave richer then when they started. I am sure as hell many of the underprivileged and middle-class after 8 years of Bush and Company can't say that.....<br>Just late night thoughts that seeing "Pleasant mystery"..... brought to my mind last night. <br><br>
Gimme a fscking break!!<br>No one gets a break David .... 8 years living under the Bush and Company motto of "One for all and all for one" Translates to " We can screw our nation and screw the world" All wrapped up in red white and blue.....<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>that can't be right<p><hr></blockquote><p> Loll.....it wasn't You left out "furthermore" <br>The whole of it reads....Furthermore, unlike Georgia, Russia does not need to worry about the effect of war on the Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline or losing its European Union membership bid over a war in the Caucasus. I translated that to mean...Unlike Georgia, Russia never made a bid so why worry Just my way of reading it....but then I am not a expert on Russia which in this day and age means I have never gazed at Russia while standing on Alaskan soil.....which automatically unlike a expert like Sarah Palin makes me a novice don't cha know <br> <br><br>
that indeed offers the interesting interpretation that Georgia has to worry about it's EU membership bid over the war in the Caucasus but Russia (which hasn't bid) doesn't... but the problem with that reading is that Georgia's membership bid is not affected by the war but by other objections such as it's human rights record, and I have to say that murdering Russians contravenes the right to life within the European Convention on Human Rights, acceptance of which is a condition of EU entry. <br><br>km<br><br>

Yeah, it really hasn't hit yet. Excuse me if I forget a lot of stuff, as there's way too much , and I really should be out the door, but I have a minute or two.<br><br>Those unemployment figures are an aggregate. It's really a different picture. The 'vibrant' states are over seven percent. The negative population growth states bring those figures up, as the under or unemployable leave those states, and the only ones left standing are those with jobs or content with poor jobs.<br><br>Unemployment will get much much worse. The cost of business is skyrocketing because of the skyrocketing premiums for floating the FDIC. I'll skip connecting the dots on this one (oh yeah, that doesn't include the WaMu hit which will finalize the sinking of the FDIC Titanic lifeboat). The 'overnight' rate doubled in 24 hours. Plus, the good risk pool is shrinking, so a lot of guys can no longer conduct business, then their suppliers fail as their business falls off, and so on and so on. That's one black hole. Oh yeah, forgot, commodities will skyrocket, so that's a major hit for added cost. A huge hit.<br><br>Another obvious one is the massive worm hole of short sales that will flip, for obvious reasons, to an even more massive foreclosure black hole.<br><br>Oh gee, the dollar's shrinking, but exports are good, but the global repercussions are drying up export demand.<br><br>Oh, and when the Asians can no longer afford to bail us out (and that's a certainty, and it's comin up quick), then a really really big hammer falls.<br><br>Well, I absolutely gotta go. Oh, but one last quick thing. Information technology will be fine. No time to explain now. But will try to remember later.<br><br>Well, have a good one, man,<br><br>Ed<br><br>[color:purple]Information isn't a connection - It doesn't stir people</font color=purple><br>
