Oil drops below $90 / barrel!!!!!



Just keep thinking this so you wont have to worry about the world's financial markets getting drained today.....wow...sub10K

Bailout = too slow and too late...did they really expect the rest of the world markets to just sit there?

Another positive: the Euro is sliding so its now cheaper to go to Oktoberfest!!!

Prosit! Might as well drink to the incompetence !

And its all the fault of that darn corruption and greed on Wall Street as we have all been recently enlightened...

Big banks are cleaning up...

I heard that this morning so I ran to the gas station but it's still $3.59/gallon. I was so disappointed that I bought two monster slim jims and two energy drinks then left!


RIP Greg Walker, I will never forget you

If everybody thought before they spoke, the silence would be deafening

FBI given new power for spying in U.S.

(10-04) 04:00 PDT Washington - -- Justice Department officials released new guidelines Friday that empower FBI agents to use intrusive techniques to gather intelligence within the United States, alarming civil liberties groups and Democratic lawmakers who worry that they invite privacy violations and other abuses.

The new road map allows investigators to recruit informants, employ physical surveillance and conduct interviews in which agents disguise their identities in an effort to assess national security threats. FBI agents could pursue each of those steps without any single fact indicating a person has ties to a terrorist organization.

Attorney General Michael Mukasey said the guidelines are necessary to fulfill the FBI's core mission to predict threats and respond even before an attack takes place. The ground rules will help the bureau become "a more flexible and adept collector of intelligence," as independent commissions urged after the strikes of Sept. 11, 2001, Mukasey said in a statement Friday.

The guidelines go into effect Dec. 1, two months later than initially planned. Authorities said the delay was a concession to privacy advocates and Arab American groups concerned that their members could be subject to racial or ethnic profiling.

Justice Department leaders rewrote a key section of the guidelines concerning agents' infiltration of groups and attendance at demonstrations. Under the new language, agents would be able to investigate the likelihood of violence from a planned demonstration for as many as 30 days, with renewals subject to approval.

Congressional staff members said the revisions were superficial, and the American Civil Liberties Union immediately condemned the road map. Critics had asked Justice Department leaders to wait until a new president takes office.

Caroline Fredrickson, director of the ACLU's Washington legislative office, said: "Since, under these guidelines, a generalized 'threat' is enough to begin an investigation, the FBI will be given carte blanche to begin surveillance without factual evidence. ... These guidelines will lead to political witch hunts and more unwarranted investigations of political enemies and peace groups."

Drop in Oil and commodities is driven by lower demand and recession expectations.

It's also a big part of why the whole market is going down. While the liberal arts CNBC talking heads may say some companies 'look cheap', it's primarily because the market expects a broad economic slowdown that will affect all companies.
