    I’m reading The Warrior Ethos by Steven Pressfield. It’s about all the traits needed for ” modern warfare” ; how we’ve unlearned them and how to get them back! It’s old and new and something I can’t get enough of. Grab a copy today.

    How will I measure my life? Same way Chevy Chase did in Caddyshack… by height.

    I’m reading this little nugget from the past courtesy of Jesse’s cafe

    VP Biden says he called Jon Corzine for advice:

    You will never see this at Fox or CNN or CNBC or any of the networks…

  4. Wiggs says:

    I’m learning about the “Liberal Ratchet” these days…interesting take on partisan spending. Not sure if it is revisionist or not though…


    BR: Is that similar to the Tax Cut ratchet? (or is that racket?)

    “How will I measure my life?”

    Was I compassionate?

    Did the SEC , just get it? See Investigating boards

  7. Wiggs says:

    Yea, they appear to be synonymous. It just depends on what side of the line you stand.

    I wish BR would explain why he keeps linking to the “stuff” that Altucher – a self-acknowledged failed money manager (also a complete moron when it comes to the matters of *real life*, a shameless provocateur, and now apparently a penny-stock promoter) – spews onto the only medium where such crap can exist – his own web sites.

    Well, whatever crap Altucher was peddling is up over 80% today. I’d be ashamed to be even most remotely associated with this pathetic boiler room-type “pump.”


    BR: I personally like James as a person, I find him often insightful, always amusing.

    Hi, looks like the link for the “What’s keeping US gas prices aloft (FT Alphaville)” article is broken. should be easy to fix with a minor edit though.

    @Global Eyes

    Why do you want to ‘get back’ the “Warrior Ethos” ? You want to kill someone ?
