G.M.- Government Motors

Government Motors- The sound of it sent the administration's spin machine into action. Polling showed that moniker made a great deal of the public uncomfortable. The linguistic experts worked overtime to turn this sow's ear into a silk purse. Their brilliant efforts through trial ballooning produced an alternative that polled most excellently with 18-30 year-old citizens. American Motors, that's the ticket.

Apparently, they overlooked the poll numbers for the older set. That data showed that Americans 35 and older...

...thought that it turned a sow's ear into bloody, pus filled, projectile diarrhea.

Eww. That last image of the sow's ear just... eww.

I don't particularly like this news. It just doesn't bode well for an already stretched thin economy when the government is coming to the rescue of everyone by printing money.

What gets me is the stock market seems to like it overall. Though I see via the ExactPrice widget that today gold is starting to take off. I don't know if that's good or bad or just a sign that investors are seeing all these FED moves as dangerous in the long run.

If we had any money to invest in anything besides our lawyers, gold would be at the forefront right now.
