Week In Review

The big sensation around the stock blogosphere this week was this clip, in which Jon Stewart pointed out the ineptitude of CNBC. Even lunatic right wingers were linking it and extolling its virtues.

This is great. Stewart's agenda has always been about excavating hypocrisy and exposing it. Perhaps by attacking CNBC he can expand his base of viewers. So anyway, check out the classic clip below from the summer.

But it's cool if you want to keep watching Glenn Beck. Someone needs to ramp up the fear in this country enough so that the market finally bottoms...

Okay, let's lighten the mood up, shall we? Ever wanted to beat the shit out of McGruff the crime dog?

The CIA realizes they've been using black highlighters all these years...

Were you hungover when your history class went over WWII? No bother... here it is all condensed into a comic that you can read in about 2 minutes.

How about a national fuel economy standard? Sounds good to me! Otherwise, California is going to keep getting all the credit for being the "smart state" and that just doesn't seem to make sense to me.

A daily read for me now, check out the fun J.B had with our favorite CNBC personalities.

Should China and the U.S swap stimulus packages? Again, I'll skip the easy joke here...

Here is one company that I'm thrilled to see go under. They have 50 copies of every bullshit movie I never want to see and no copies of anything worthwhile. Looking forward to a smarter video retailer to take their place... Oh, wait.

5 ways you'll know the recession is over.

Ann Coulter is smart.

Meanwhile, here's why Rush does radio now...

Sorry I'm getting so political... okay, check this out... the Kindle 2 reads the classics. Actually, Trader P just got a Kindle and he loves it.

I was never into Star Trek and I'm not gay... however, if you're gay and you like Star Trek, this is the video for you.

A cat pushing a watermelon out of a lake. I guess the message is, you too can win in the stock market?

UPDATE: I almost missed this. Duncan Neiderauer, head of the NYSE made a little news this week when he called for a reinstatement of the "uptick rule" and said that the "trader tax" legislation would "decimate" the markets. More here.

Your politics are naive to say the least. Obviously you have never really ventured out far from your little liberal world and did anything substantial with your life. BTW, I find it interesting that jon stewart was done when marvin with the big glasses in the back who writes all of his witty remarks was on strike. No talent.
