Breaking News: Bernie Madoff made money for someone!

My Comments: The crook actually makes somebody a few bucks. A Queens New York construction worker used the Bernie Madoff’s prison number to play the lottery and won $1,500!  I love the last line of the article “One thing he’s not going to do with the money is invest it in the stock market. He’s not that crazy.”

Britney’s shotgun marriage didn’t last, why would Chrysler’s be any different?

My Comment: In a recent speech, President Obama said “Chrysler’s situation is more perilous, and the government will give the company 30 days to overcome hurdles to a merger with Fiat SpA, the Italian automaker. If they are successful “we will consider lending up to $6 billion to help their plan succeed.”

 

I have seen this scenario before; Britney Spears got drunk in Vegas and did a shotgun marriage.  I have no reason to think Chrysler getting hitched will end differently.

Obama taps Volcker for tax code rebuild

 

My Comments: President Obama stated he is concerned that too many loopholes exist and too many people are cheating the system. Ahhhh.  I guess the President has pretty good knowledge of this problem since the running total of staff members with tax problems is running pretty high.

On a serious note, this could be a good thing if AMT gets overhauled.  You should remain skeptical.  When a President announces intentions to “rebuild the tax code” it ends up looking more like a band aid.
