The vast corporate structures we leveraged and then over-leveraged finally collapsed onto themselves, and the safety and stability once associated with having a “cushy” job with a big company in a tall building has now become a landscape of layoffs and hiring freezes.

...who for generations brought smiles to millions of fans around the world, with their zany slapstick humor that now seems to be the standard incorporated within the Obama inner circle…only this time we’re not laughing.

Watching President Obama, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Senator Chris Dodd’s performance on the AIG debacle, one couldn’t help but think back to those three loveable bungling buffoons, slapping each other silly as they performed one prat-fall and comedy routine after another.

First it was Secretary Geithnere; you know the guy who... Read More
