To be (or not to be) ...

... treated with courtesy and respect by your elected government.


The big picture: Pump and Dump

Pump and Dump: a scheme that attempts to boost the price of a stock  through recommendations based on misleading or greatly exaggerated   statements. The perpetrators of this scheme, who already have an established position in the company's stock, sell their positions after the hype has led to a higher share price. This practice is illegal based on securities law and can lead to heavy fines (my comment: in a civilized country).

BET-FI, of course... (chart to be posted soon).


To my students: "Life is a game of inches..."

So, how many inches are you willing to go today, lazy bums?


So much for the Greek determination...

It turned out that Baldy didn't have the balls to stick to his guns...
A jellyfish has more spine then you, Mr PM.


The plot thickens...

This summer's blockbuster (see the 28th Sept post) has a twist:

The Greek PM has grown balls (Stick to your guns, Baldy!), the bankers got the runaround (You've bet on the wrong horse, greedy bastards!) and as usual the most ridiculous comments are coming from France (Boo-fucking-hoo Sarkozy et Co.).
