Geithner Calls for ‘New Rules of the Game’ in Finance (Update4)
By Rebecca Christie and Robert Schmidt

*** begin quote ***

March 26 (Bloomberg) — U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said regulation of the U.S. financial system needs a broad overhaul to heal a crippling lack of confidence caused by the credit crisis.

“To address this will require comprehensive reform,” Geithner said at a House Financial Services Committee hearing. “Not modest repairs at the margin, but new rules of the game.”

Yup. It’s just a game to this idiot!

Folks on Wall Street think it is all “monopoly money”. And, a big game.

With everyone’s retirement going up in smoke, this ass should be in jail for tax fraud. Not running the treasury!

It shows how poor an executive O is.

I judge Presidents partially on who they pick!

Senate reviewing how college football picks No. 1
By FREDERIC J. FROMMER – 18 hours ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — Everyone from President Barack Obama on down to fans has criticized how college football determines its top team. Now senators are getting off the sidelines to examine antitrust issues involving the Bowl Champion Series.

Glad they aren’t spending time on anything “less” important like the deficit.

JOBSEARCH: STRATEGY Get your writing noticed?

Thursday, March 26, 2009

OK, we all agree its a tough world out there.

And, as you despite being an expert in <insert favorite aspect of your career>, you, (and me), AIN’T drawing a paycheck.

(And, for those smug overconfident soon to be unemployed, you may have drawn your LAST one!)

Here’s a way to get your content out there. I don’t particularly care what content it is. AS LONG AS IT’S SPELLED RIGHT and gramatically correct. (Wouldn’t that be the kiss of death. Like having a typo on your resume!) And, it isn’t too controversial (e.g., “How I was abducted by aliens”; “How to conceal your drug habit?”; “Padding your expense account”; “Best racist dirty jokes”). You get the idea.

I do know that this site has “buzz”, is indexed by Google, and has high traffic counts.

SOME folks are even putting their resumes on there. (I’m not so sure that’s a great idea.)

But if I was a lean and hungry seeker. I’d get soem high quality content up there. ESPECIALLY if I was an expert in something other than the lifestyle of turkeys (i.e., out of work jobseekers) large and small.

the big fat old turkey hisself

p.s., I’m putting stuff up there. We’ll see if it works for fat old turkeys!
