Roll over... Play dead.

Exxon posted profits this week for last quarter. Yes, the highest yet to date. ELEVEN BILLION DOLLARS. That is for one quarter, 3 months, 90 days. To wrap my head around this number I figured out if they posted profit every hour, 24 hours a day, for 90 days, their hourly profit would be $5,000,000.00 an hour. Yes 5 million dollars an hour, profit. Oil refineries do not have any constraints on polluting our environment any more thanks to W. He says it is the only way to keep prices down… yeah how’s that working for you all. Predictions for gas prices by next year is $10 a gallon. Yeah, how’s that working for you. Is there panic in the streets? People clambering outside the White House gates? Senators and Congressmen afraid of being ousted? No, just Americans opening up their wallets, rolling over and playing dead.

The Fed is taking the opposite route of the European banks I wrote about last week. The wedding planning certification is important to show that you are a qualified wedding planner. Use purple drumstick allium, tulips, iris, hydrangea, chrysanthemum, etc, for the two-tone designs.

The 3DS has more powerful graphics and better communication abilities and the much lighter DS just cannot compete against the 3DS.
