Solar World Round Up - The Fed, The Economy - No Duh?

When Ben Bernanke said today, "The prospects for a return to growth in the near term appear good," the stock market lurched forward and I said no duh! (Article linked above)

When his European Central Bank President counter part Jean-Claude Trichet replied, "I am a little bit uneasy when I [hear] that, because we have some green shoots here and there, we are already saying, 'well, after all, we are close to back to normal',"...

I would like to take both men's heads and bang them together. It's not a coincidence that Trichet refered to the signs of growth as "some GREEN shoots" yo morons your subconscious is trying to tell you something...dear lord help these idiots please.

When is the Status Quo going to WAKE UP and start investing in the future. Can't they see the hand writing on the wall. He fellas, look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's a SAFE, FREE, ENERGY SOURCE.



How long do we have to wait for these idiots these captains of industry to break out of their same old routines? When is man kind going to get its head out of the ground. But this is the way we always have done things Paul - dig in the ground and blow up the mountains for coal, oil, gas and uranium.

Cue Carlos Mencia's De, De, Deee. Bullshit I cry the industrial revolution and the dirty fuel driven economy has only been around for a HUNDRED years. But it's done a Century's worth of damage to our ecology, eco-system, and health. Wake up Geniuses - oh and investors - uhh look below - you might want to get in EARLY - you stupid freakin' clowns!
