What do you call a professional with no ethics?  A sociopath...a street thug or a con man? Does anyone respect the con artists on wall street or our infamous bankers? How many families have been hurt and torn apart by such greed and lack of ethics...who is winning? Anyone?

Only time will speak the truth...per usual there are more than 2 sides to this story...I believe almost any new ideals would be better than our present ones that have seized USA in the last decade.

Brief comments from Daily Pfennig on inflation:
As was largely expected, the data from yesterday didn't offer up an real surprises. Beginning with February CPI, inflation remained muted and came in right as expected. According to the Labor Dept, headline monthly inflation increased 0.1% for the second month in a row while the annual figure fell to the lowest in four months, which was 1.9%. The CPI figure provides the broadest perspective of the three inflation reports since it includes goods and services. As Chuck has mentioned numerous times, inflation means different things to different people. For example, if I never go to the movie theatre and there is an increase at the box office, I won't necessarily be impacted but my neighbor who may catch a matinee every Sunday would have a different answer.

Either way, the government numbers just never seem to correlate to real life even though they claim otherwise. Whether it's the insurance company raising premiums, the cable company charging more for the same service, or the landscaper assessing a fuel surcharge, I feel like a lot of goods and services now cost more than they did a year ago. Maybe I can buy a pair of jeans on the cheap, but inflation at 1.1% or 1.6% just doesn't look and feel realistic. I recently did some painting, granted it been a couple of years since I last tackled that task, but I was surprised to see how much a gallon of paint set me back.

I have not seen anything on-line this effective and important. If anyone wants to understand the difficult lives ppl experience who struggle with Bi-Polar disorder, this panel discussion is superb. The panel is articulate, intelligent and honest. 
 
I Am Not Crazy presents: The Bipolar Panel Project.  
First Episode = 9 PM EST / 6 PM PST

This is the first episode in a new series of online interactive discussion shows.  Each episode we will have a different topic of discussion for the panel.  Tuning in will allow you to interact with the panel in real time by asking questions.  You can also interact with other viewers through a live chat feature.

This week we will be taking some time to let you get to know our panel members.  They will each be sharing their personal stories.  After we will open up the floor so that you can ask them any questions you might have.  They will also be talking about any projects they are currently working on.

Anna worked until she was 80...just after she retired she was able to loan me 50k that I used as a down payment for new construction on a home. She has been retired 25 years now! She did a good job, too.
