For once, Turbo told the truth on a weekend talk show. Sort of. We could add that Geithner never paid taxes like a real taxpayer either. Geithner’s ongoing attempt to distance himself from Wall Street’s decade of fraud is laughable. As President of the New York Fed, Geithner was criminally negligent in his role as Wall Street’s chief regulator.
Timmaaayy tells the truth.
“I find that the charge that — the myth that I worked in [...]

With the market still hopeful of some deus ex resolution to the Fiscal Cliff will take place in the last few trading sessions of the year (one where the market itself will not have to be the catalyst for such a resolution, because once the selling starts in earnest, who knows if and when it stops, hence the loading up on prodigious amounts of puts), here is Iran out of [...]
Defense contractor Lockheed Martin heeded a request from the White House today — one with political overtones — and announced it will not issue layoff notices to thousands of employees just days before the November presidential election.
Lockheed, one of the biggest employers in the key battleground state of Virginia, previously warned it would have to issue notices to employees, required by law, due to looming defense cuts set to begin [...]

After nearly two years and $86 million worth of noisy and disruptive construction, the West Wing has emerged from its visual seclusion remarkably unchanged. And deep underground, whatever has been built there remains shrouded in mystery.
