So FOX has been keeping inthe dark over about the economy? Glad I bought another 50,000 Euros last week.

Anyone who gets "facts" from Fox [or Rush] deserves the misinformation in their head.

All you really have to do to get most of the facts is READ the government reports from their respective web sites, not listen to the White House or Fox Spin of the reports. Most of the bureaucrats that write the reports don't care about the politics and write the actual numbers, knowing they will be "adjusted" for broadcast. Just read them from the source.

And about euros last week, you should have been buying in 2000 and 2001, I did. They are up 78%.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Fox is fair and balanced, they say so every commercial break.

As for Euro's in 01, that is when I locked in my first 150k of that currency. Still taking a bath on the interest though. Best I can get now in Singapore for the Euro is around 3.18 but the USD I am still pulling 5.035 and expect that stay this year considering the outlook by the fed.

THAT is the most bizarre thing you have ever said.

After years of criticizing Bush for not being polished.

Hi-fucking-larious.

Snort!

He gave the best speech he ever gave tonight-about-face.jpg

And it's "schmuck" by the way - I thought it was a typo the first 7 or 8 times I saw people use it. Yiddish for penis.
