Moment of Political Zen: Gov. Chris Christie R-NJ and Mayor Corey Booker D-Newark promote CAP 2.5 legislation…

Update 2: the veto overide failure is up on the news wires

Update: More joy from Joisey- Kudlow is reporting the State Legislature’s attempt to override Gov Christie’s veto of the millionaire’s tax has failed. Good news for NJ job creation!

Governor Chris Christie joined by Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Newark Mayor Corey Booker make an announcement regarding the proposal to cap property tax increases to no more than 2.5 percent.

In the midst of the economic hurricane, leadership emerges – Gov Christie steps up to the plate with CAP 2.5 (our previous post outlining  CAP 2.5 here) and Mayor Corey Booker, Democrat of Newark, steps up to support him. It MUST be done, there is no more money, the residents of New Jersey have nothing more to give. Labor has to step up and share the hits or close up shop and call it a day. Americans have had enough with labor’s overreach.

True Blood Season 4 announced!

Update: Looks like we will not be able to play the markets on MOVIES OR PREMIUM PAY SHOWS!! The Dems have killed the provision that would have grown the market action in a non harmful way. Frakkers.

awesome :0) and as far as my earlier query on trading futures on cable shows, as Cantor Fitz is doing with box office, it could be done, anything you can bet on that has a revenue stream and wont hurt society should be fair game in the markets ~ better we bet on True Blood than housing….


…The network released an announcement today that they’re picking the vampire series up for another season. Given the strong numbers the third season premiere pulled in, that’s not all that surprising.

“The new season of TRUE BLOOD is off to a terrific start, as enthusiasm for this unique show continues to build among both subscribers and critics,” noted Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. “We’re looking forward to more chills from Alan Ball and his gifted team next year.”

Season three is currently airing on Sunday nights on HBO. According to HBO, Season Four will consist of 12 episodes and will begin production early next year in Los Angeles. It will premiere next summer (2011)….

Meredith Whitney – Housing double dip is here, Middle Class Squeeze to get worse…

This Congress is killing the middle class.

Vodpod videos no longer available.


…Whitney also said financial regulation reform and policy-making that is not friendly to the middle class will hurt growth.

“The populist incumbents argue that we’ve got to get money to redistribute wealth,” she said. “This squeezes the middle class further down the food chain. The unintended consequences of this are maddening.”..

Meanwhile back in DC our HUD secretary is either deluded or spinning like a top:

…”There is no question that today’s housing market is in significantly better shape than anyone predicted 18 months ago,” he told reporters, adding, “Seventeen months after President Obama took office our housing market is stabilizing.”

To support the claim, the HUD chief released a scorecard on the housing market that showed after 30 straight months of decline, home prices have leveled off and are expected to begin adjusting upward.

It also showed that since April 2009, 2.8 million homeowners have received restructured mortgages through Obama’s loan modification programs, and more than 2.5 million families used the First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit to purchase a home. The credit was a part of the first stimulus bill Obama signed into law shortly after taking office….

BWAAAAHAA!!! ROTFLMAO!!!!! HAMP and the Tax Credit worked he says!! BWAAAAHAAFRAKKINHAAAA!~!!! ZOMG! Ahh man they really slay me.
