Quote of the Day

Nassim Nicholas Taleb said…

“Obama did exactly the opposite of what should have been done… He surrounded himself with people who exacerbated the problem. You have a person who has cancer and instead of removing the cancer, you give him tranquilizers. When you give tranquilizers to a cancer patient, they feel better but the cancer gets worse… Total debt is higher than it was in 2008 and unemployment is worse.”

    So Summers has left the sinking ship so he does not get any blame for November but will be welcomed by Wall Street.
    However Geithner is still in place and can only cause more problems.
    Axelrod is leaving to go to Chicago to mastermind Obama’s case for re-election.
    We all wish him well in getting back to his desired political pals.

    In November the American people have the chance to stop this nonsense.

    I think they are bright enough to do so.

    The solution is usually to trust the people.

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
