Completely OT but for those interested in Finnish elections, now that the pre-votes have been counted, the anti-euro True Finns gained massively and were 3rd biggest party with 18.7% of the votes. If this will hold when all votes have been counted things will get very interesting...

Thanks Dick, I was reading about the True Finns earlier and was/am interested in how the election might pan out.

Who would want to join the EU at this stage of the game?  That is like joining the Nazi Party in 1946.

My pleasure D. Here's an update: roughly 64% of all votes now counted and True Finns are sharing the first place as the biggest party with National Coalition!

Obama and Holder are proving that black people can be just as corrupt as white people.  I figured Marion Barry, Don King, Jessie Jackson, and a host of others had already done that but Holder and Obama are at the pinnacle of power.  They can't offer the excuse that they are "fighting the man".  They are the man and boy do they suck.

Always remember rule #1-  The banks control the government, not the other way around.  It has nothing to do with their skin color, party or anything else.  Anyone in those positions will be controlled by the banks.

dictionary.com defn 2: "a person of any race or origin regarded as contemptible, inferior, ignorant, etc." Only 1 of 3 def's apply specifically to dark-skinned individuals. Everybody's so freaked out over the N word, lest we "offend' anybody. Shit - I am offended every fuckin' day by all kinds of shit, and nobody defends my sorry ass (white male). You damn betcha they've all been niggers.... since JFK. Whores, too.

I would make a dinstiction here. You should say "black politicians" are as corrupt as "white politicians."

Most people of any color are not corrupt. 

BTW: To prove your point all you have to do is look at the African nations.

Spitzer should have been the AG or better yet the president if the United States. Instead, we got Donald "the Clown" Trump shamelessly self-promoting himself every chance he gets.

Spitzer for POTUS?  You seriously typed it?  I mean it's one thing not to like the contenders, but it's entirely another to propose Spitzer.  The country has born enough cigar's in aide's and generally unqualified windbags.

I don't like democrats in general, but bill clinton wasn't too bad.  It is really scary that Georgie boy made me nostalgic for horndog.

Yes, Clinton and Congress balanced the budget.  Bwahahaha.  I never tire of hearing that joke.  I was at a trade show where Joe Scarborough was the speaker and kept repeating that over and over again.  I almost threw up.  Clinton only gave us Rubin and Summers and Hillary.  What a guy.  I do miss him.  Maybe I should go visit him in Harlem.  Oh, wait, his office is just up there.  That doesn't mean he actually hangs out there.  I would have to go to Chappaqua to find one of those phony Clintons.

"Man of the people" - ha ha.

Razoback Bill looked good on the surface but if people only new the truly shitty trade deals that he made with foreign nations that have caused the US to loose more jobs and money than can be counted you would realize that the BJ was the highlight of his POTUS reign... oops, spilled some.

Dont be suprised when we finally learn that HornDog was behind the massive Tungsten replacement program at Fort Knox and the real reason Sandy Berger was redacting and stealing original notes was for this reason.

Right, it's almost like he didn't even sign the repeal of Glass-Steagal and is now paid over $500k per speaking appearences by the banks too big to fail over and over and over again, raising his net worth from being $15 million in debt to being worth over $120 million today.  

It's almost like he wasn't the number one guy who opened the floodgates to outsourcing our jobs in a huge sellout to Wall Street.

Bill Clinton, what a guy.  At least he decided to raid the entire coffers of Social Security revenue to use as general revenues as an accounting gimmick to say he "balanced the budget."

The unqualified windbag part might be true.  I don't know.

But judging Spitzer (or any public official) for conduct unrelated to their office is getting old.

Cast all the stones you want.  We will ALL end up bruised and bloody.  Every last one.

What was really shocking was that Clinton always went for such pigs. Could have done a lot better IMO.

he wasnt getting at home. ;)

Leo... you just don't get it...

Now you're an expert on Spitzer? Look, you're a failed pension wannabe now becoming an expert on everything else.

Regardless of what one thinks of Spitzer, he's miles ahead of you. You're not even qualified to comment.

Regulatory capture cannot be stopped when people have a cushy private opportunity when they leave the bureaucracy.

We need to end all financial regulations and zero out the bureaucracies. When things go bad people need to lose money.

Personal vigilance and ending moral hazard will correct all financial excesses at least as well as our current system and will cost the taxpayers less.

I wonder where tim geithner will go after he leaves public service.

Anyone want to place bets on timmah's future sugardaddy?
