Bear Sterns is just fine!

If you follow the markets, you’re probably familiar with Jim Cramer. Jim recently made some rather strong statements about BS. If you’d like a laugh (or a cry), take a look…

SHOULD YOU PREPARE FOR A DEPRESSION?

As you know, the administrator of this site has been warning for some time of the potential for a very dire future for our country.  Some leading forecasters are predicting a “Greater Depression” or worse for the USA. Let us hope and pray that they are wrong. You would be remiss, however, if you did not take the time to consider the possibilities and make at least minimal preparations. Following are a number of links of interest…

Our next president – who will it be?

John McCain has  claimed the Republican nomination. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are in a dead heat for the Democratic nomination – that may be decided this Tuesday. Talk of a third party candidate has all but ceased, though that could change once the electorate examine the credentials of the two major candidates.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

What is your opinion of illegal immigration? What are the solutions to the problems it has created? Should there be an amnesty program? Should they all be sent back to the country of their origin? Are they taking jobs that our welfare recipients ought to be filling?

SPAY/NEUTER LAW IN CALIFORNIA

Some legislatures in California are trying to pass a law making it mandatory that everyone has to spay/neuter their pets by four months of age. If that law passes in California, it may start passing everywhere. Pro: Fewer abandoned animals. Con: One more right will be taken away from the people.

Note: There were a number of comments made on the alternate site; you may wish to repeat them here.

NEEDED: GHOST STORIES

Hello,
My name is Ray Couch and I own and operate
www.SouthernGhosts.com. We are a
paranormal travel business that brings groups to haunted and historic
cities like
yours.
I am working on a book about Vicksburg as well as a ghost tour and some
group
trips. I need your help. I am looking for ghost stories. I need stories
about every
corner of Vicksburg. I would love for you to share any stories you have. I
promise
to treat your property and stories with respect and I won’t embarass you.
Remember,
twenty years ago a ghost story would hurt a property, but today they
become tourist
attractions.
I am working with the Vicksburg CVB and this could be very big for all of
us.
Please contact me at
Vicksburg@SouthernGhosts.com or call me at 407 234-6611.
Thanks for the time and if you could pass this information along, if would be
appreciated.
