Default F**kin' Weather

This weather pattern really sucks, the last couple of days here has been 15-20 below zero and highs barely over zero. And now, they are talking mid 30's all of next week. STILL NO F**CKIN' Snow, and the damn groomer is out on the trails, waste of time and money. Sure wish I was out in Colorado, Southern Wisconsin, or East Coast at the moment. Snowmobile manufacturer's are in Northern Minnesota, and they can't sell in their own back yard due to Mother Nature. It's F**kin' time that "All mighty" (sorry, not you IBS!!) lift the damn bubble over MInnesota, and let us due what we do best, RIDE SLEDS!! Another hit, Gas just went up another seven cents a gallon this morning, that's on top of the five cents last week. And the House/Senate people want to know why they are treated like crimminals? A$$holes raise Gas Tax to cover their pay increases, that are above the "cost of living index". I'll let IBS take it from here

I feel your pain, man. What? You don't like the biggest tax increase in Minnesota history? At least the people in The Cities will get more of their precious trains.

You should see the diesel charges here, diesel is at 3.99/gallon.

Stick it to the blue-collar workin man.

I'm sure someone will get in here and say that gas prices aren't manipulated, blah blah blah. Chew on this:

Last year:
Barrel of crude = $75 we had $3.79-$3.99 fuel

This year:
Barrel of crude = $105 we have.... $3.15? $3.30?

That doesn't make any sense. Mathematics tell us that if crude goes up by X, then refined fuels go up as a % of X. This is not the case.

GAS PRICES ARE WHAT THE MARKET WILL BARE, NOT SUPPLY AND DEMAND. Record profits.... PFFT.

I just thank god that there will be a day when we don't rely on any assholes for energy. Do you guys realize how much safer the world will be when the middle east and South America doesn't sit on that shit? They blow through money (27 story house with 5 pools?) faster than MC Hammer. Oil worth nothing means no more income means NO MORE BOMBS OR TERRORIST CAMPS. Kinda. lol. They'll end up like Africa - a cesspool of the world.

I know both you and IBS have not been able to ride much, and I do feel your pain. We have been lucky here to be able to ride every weekend, and I feel bad that others like you, that are true fanatics can't go.
As far as gas prices, that is the most aggrevating subject!! Get the Middle Easterns richer and richer and makes us suffer. Someone - our Government - needs to get control of this situation and do something about it. The price of gas is rediculas and causing everything else to go up too - except OUR paychecks!!!

Definitely "Bibical scriptures" there IBS!!!!! A$$wipes over in the middle East need to have their A$$'s handed to them. It's about time we say that we tap our own supply of Crude Oil. Hell, by the time my boys are my age, Gas and OIl will be a thing of the past, they will be running on Electrical and Nuclear power!!! God forbid what today's kids will do with that kind of power!!! Rubi, the Fu**in' trains are a waste of money in the cities, that isn't going to help out the problem. It's the damn law makers, they get a raise no matter what the profits are. Corporations base it on profitability, law makers should be judged the same way, if yah can't keep the State a float, get the F**k out and let some one can!!! I vote for Rubi as the next Governor of MInnesota!!!!!

Gas, taxes......
Lets not forget the credit crisis, which by the way is gearing up to become even worse as the feds loan an additional $100 Billion to banks to help "ease the persistent credit problems"

How the hell do they even think to ever re-coup that money in this situation? Foreclosure auctions surely will not provide the remuneration required to pay down the bank loans.

Imagine, BANKS, the facilities devised to provide loans, are borrowing these huge amounts of money themselves, from our federal gov't.

Hang tight and close your eyes folks.................it's tailspin time.






I can not however complain about my snow or my riding this year, sorry.

All the money that kept us from going into a depression under our current lawmakers must be paid back. I have been saying it for years. All that money from the over-inflated housing market was never ours. Only people who made out on that are the Japanese who bought all the MBS and turned them. We're left with the aftermath.

I never heard the 100 billion. I only heard 200 million. You think that's a lot of money? Here in Chicago that's only 400 houses. WOO HOO.

After the first great depression (I say first becuase we are well on our way into the second one), the government said "No more insurance, banks, and trading from the same company". Well guess what? You can now get a loan from State Farm Bank... seems that the greedies are working their way into everything again. Why can't Walgreens just sell drugs, Mcdonalds hamburgers, and Menards building supplies? They're all trying to take over the damn world.

Can you say "S&L bail out"?? Back in the late 70's, there was a S&L bail out for the Fed's, they basically bought out Banks (Midwest Federal) that were about to leave the doors open after hours to anyone who wanted what was left in the vault, "0" dollars.

Yes, $100 Billion, in addition to the $160 Billion that the fed already shelled out in December.

Where do ya think all that green is coming from? Anyone? Anyone? Beuhler? Beuhler?

Oh ya, our shitty currency right now? Stock market? Bank rates? (lol, bank security?)

Stashing a pile of Euros under my mattress seems an attractive financial investment at the moment.



Cripes, started as a weather discussion............see where all us cranky assholes end up with it?

S&L bailout right before the energy crisis? This time it happened the opposite first.

Downstairs roommate worked for Long Beach MTG, before they went bye-bye. The branch he VP'd at had an 800mil credit line, they were dumping the portfolios faster than they could fill them. Then the first warehouse pulled the plug, and within 30 days that credit line was stacked. They had a meeting in Las Vegas with all the VPs and CEO. "How much of your line is left?" Roommate's line - $85,000. Pfft. Not even enough to do a first for someone. The answer was the same all around the room. Meeting was done in 2 hours. They all went and got loaded and gambled. Next week D1, I think(no one knows why they did this) bought 170mil into LBM. Then LBM filed bankrupcy, D1 had 170mil in useless notes. Lost their behind on it. LBM's remaining assets were bought by the parent company. Done deal. That's what all these Sub-prime lenders did. Made money hand over fist, gave money to anyone with a pulse... then when they can't sell the portfolios on the open market they just declare BK, write it off as a loss and POOF. No one pays for the 800mil? Ya right.
