Borrowing Fed funds at .025 and 'lending' it at 29.99 isn't working?  Say it ain't so.

I just can't understand that companies like that got so greedy that they blew it all chasing bigger profits.

I wish I could loan out money at 29.99%, but then again I would be called a loan shark.

Check out the price performance of Capital One vs. any major gold stock the last 7 weeks...

COF has rocketed from $38 to $48 in less than two months, a truly staggering run.

Fuck off and die RainbowTrader you lying phony, and take your junk gold stocks with you. Bullish on gold Friday, Monday all day marveling at the 'severe hammering' compared to some credit card stock. Youre a dick.

No Virginia, AXP isn't going to keep the Dow from hitting 12k this week.  Out with BTFD in 2011 and in with BHSH.
