    Bill Ackman criticises the revered former Fed Chairman Greenspan’s plan to bust the GSE’s up into ten separate entities. Why ten? Why not (535?) one for each member of Congress? A sort of gift. They each run their own as a business, keep what they make, if they lose, well… won’t happen…

    I’m finishing up my open letter to Secretary Bazooka now:

    …and in conclusion Your Honorable Sec. B., thank you for reading about VennData’a ‘Denationalization Plan.’ I too, would also like to have a meeting with you and your people soon to discuss it. I have no vested interest, only love of country, Constitution, the Flag, etc. I anticipate your major objection to the ‘D. Plan:’ that you may feel somewhat remorseful that so many fine Congressfolk will have to decamp DC and return whence they came, their beloved districts, to run these brand new, debt-free, lobbyist-less businesses. Oh well…

    Quotes: Nouriel Roubini talking about the WHOLE WORLD ECONOMY: “things are getting worse and let’s recognize it!”

    Bill Ackman talking about one of his investments: “when things turn around.”

    One person doesn’t have an agenda and the other person does. Who would you believe has it right.
