Go East Old Man! Governator announces end of welfare and home health care for the elderly as Cali announces ‘We’re Here, We’re Austere, Get Used to It!’

As Ahnold addressed the presser, somewhere in the WH Barry’s cigarette fell out of his mouth.

All this comedy gold and more culled from the comments of CalculatedRisk(who needs late night Jon Stewart?):

‘V’ renewed!

They couldn’t kill it even with their ham handed breaks in scheduling, unecessary reshoots, reviews from Obots feeling defensive,  and changing the guy at the top. Amazing it survived the attacks by its own network.

SciFiWire:

Good news for Chuck and V fans! NBC has ordered a fourth season of Chuck and ABC has picked up V for a second season, The Hollywood Reporter’s LiveFeed.com reported. Both series are expected to get 13-episode orders…

Oh yeah they picked up ‘Chuck’ again too.

Market Movers Friday: Retail sales up 0.4%, futures still down sharply on Sovereign debt concerns, Euro drops to $1.24 vs USD, Gold pops $16 to $1245…

Markets not convinced by the 1T ponzi scheme wherein the FED and the EMU trade printed money back and forth across the pond and claim they have fixed the problem.

Great, short, spot on analysis yesterday from David Hefty of Cornerstone Wealth Management. He forecasts a DOW pop and then a collapse later this year to DOW 5,000. He cites all the concerns the street (and MiM!) are feeling. And of course there is a denial consumed Bull in the segment too:

“Big banks pulled back on everyone, but they pulled back harder on small businesses,” said Elizabeth Warren, chairwoman of the oversight panel, in a discussion with reporters.
