Hi Benny Fans….I’m back from my assignment in Detroit covering the GM bankruptcy . . . what a day for the market today as we may have more gas left in this rally than in GM! Let’s get down to business…
OK, Fritz was on TV this morning in his pink tie explaining why GM has declared Chapter 11 . He should be required to wear an obnoxious, polka dot bow tie like the rest of the Bozo’s who have managed this company into the ground over the last 40 years. Is anyone surprised that it took this long for them to fail? How did the one-time largest corporation in the world get to this point? Let’s roll back the calendar to 1971 to Motor Trend’s Car of the Year – the Chevy Vega! People wanted a small, economical, and dependable car and thought they could buy it from one of the Big 3. It would take an entire page to outline all the problems that GM designed into the Vega, but let’s look at one of the obvious ones – the engine.

Happy Memorial Day, Benny Fans…hope you got to have fun this long weekend…I know I did…I sat in the window sill and watched the lizards crawl back and forth on the wall…then I went out on the back patio and crawled through the jasmine bushes and came in smelling really good! Oh, to be a cat!

Oh yeah, they’re making a big deal out of a “possible pandemic” but did you know that over 100 people die each day in this country from the regular old flu? Yeah, that’s right, over 36,000 people a year die in America from the regular old “people” flu. So, what’s the big deal about some pigs getting sick? Are people going around kissing pigs? Are people getting sick from eating a Grand Slam? Or, could this possibly be a publicity stunt? I mean when was the last time the government came to the rescue and saved us from anything? The Mortgage crisis?…the Bank crisis?…Katrina?…Bernie Madoff?… Continue reading »
