• KQµårk 死神 : Take Care AdLib

  • KQµårk 死神 : Yeah that fizzled out quick

  • AdLib : Looks like time to call this edition of Vox Populi to a close. Have a great weekend KQuark and thanks to all who made it such a fun discussion tonight. See you next week!

  • KQµårk 死神 : Absolutely CL but I have confidence Obama and his team have every contingency covered. Just take care of yourself and you hubby and have as good a weekend as you all can.

  • choicelady : KQ – shhhh, don’t let him hear. He’ll be over…

  • choicelady : ‘Night all!

  • KQµårk 死神 : Oh CL I wish I could transport some of my wife’s stew to your hubby.

  • AdLib : Night CL!

  • choicelady : KQ – quickly – I think you may well be right, but it’s always worrisome.

  • KQµårk 死神 : CL I think it was hurting but then the financial crisis hit at the right time and it was obviously no longer an issue.

  • choicelady : Well now I am flaking out. Hubby is up looking for sustenance, and he can’t find anything. Have to go help him hunt down where I “hid” the cereal. As if it’s a big secret… Be well all, and for those who have Monday off – have a lovely 3-day weekend! See you next week!

  • KQµårk 死神 : CL I think our deflationary pressures are so great right now that even if there is more investment with the dollar it will not bring up the dollar. Especially since the Fed is freezing rates for two years at all time lows.

  • choicelady : KQ – yes, I will be watching the pump prices. But it did not hurt Obama in 2008, and with good PR about greed, it won’t hurt HIM but those who want to deregulate oil – aka Mittens.

  • choicelady : KQ – now you and I are cross typing! I’m with AB – watch out fingers!

  • KQµårk 死神 : But watch their will be another manufactured gas price hike to try and help the GOP like in 2008.

  • choicelady : AdLib – yes, the dollar is likely to be popular again. Down side? If it goes up, our exports are at risk. That could slow domestic production. WORST move EVER was the ’73 decision to let national media of exchange become tradable commodities – that has done SO much damage to our ability to export, our stability – that’s gotta get re-regulated next, and the EU crisis and other factors are pushing that toward reality. Obama gets it and has the capacity to make greater currency value stability a reality.

  • KQµårk 死神 : It all depends if the Euro inflates. If it does that’s real trouble. If it’s more stable the dollar is so depressed US goods are still cheap in Europe and they invented outsourcing for cheaper goods.

  • AdLib : Invient – It is something on the horizon that could harm our economy…or it could also make the US a safer place for world money to go and juice up our economy.

  • choicelady : AdLib – that’s precisely what I mean. Obama can handle it. Bain can be linked to CAUSING a lot of our crises.

  • KQµårk 死神 : What CL and AdLib said.

  • AdLib : Invient – EU seems to have a structure in place and austerity measures are continuing. It is a possibility but not a probability. As for BofA, it could be a blessing in disguise if they were to have trouble, Obama would be in a position to require the splitting up of a Too Big To Fail bank…which could help the financial marketplace by removing more risk of another TARP situation.

  • choicelady : invient – if the EU crisis heats up, ONLY Obama can handle it. I see in the paper though that there is a new meme – the Fed “did not see it coming” – they’re using 2006 info as if that was a time it COULD be seen and Geitner is to blame. Cute. Still and all, Obama has the juice and the chops to deal with whatever happens overseas.

  • KQµårk 死神 : invient I don’t think it will be like an explosion rather like a balloon being deflated.

  • choicelady : “Night AB – stay warm!

  • invient : Nope, eu crisis is going to implode. Then bofa is next. It’s only a matter of time.

  • KQµårk 死神 : Even if Obama switched out Biden as SOS it would be after the election and I’m not sure Hillary would be the VP.

  • choicelady : ‘Night Murph – hope you get some rest! “See” you next week!

  • AdLib : Night Murph!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : I know I have been quiet tonight…just tuckered out. Enjoyed being a bystander. See y’all next week.
