NonRant: No Yank Markets Today...

Note - from June 24th 2009, this blog has migrated from Blogger to a self-hosted version. Click here to go straight there.

... and thus no USRant.

US and Canadian markets are closed. In the US it's Preznint's Day (the portemanteau holiday for Washington and Lincoln's birthdays which in a little under twelve months will also celebrate the tenure of the incumberiser - Cokehead McAwol). For those from Canadia, it's "Family Day"... the name alone makes me want to vomit blood.

I know, it's not actually "Canadia", but if they want to call theirselfs "Canadian" instead of "Canadan", then they are going to have to put up with me being annoying about the name of their rather picturesque country.

If Albanians come from Albania

and Strayans come from Straya

how come bloody Canadians

don't come from bloody Canadia?

Case closed...

PS... shame - eternal, heart and soul-destroying shame - on the UK government. Nationalise the disgusting opportunism of the Northern Rock management, will ye?

How much did those vermin pocket over the last five years? Claw all that money back, along with the hundreds of million of pounds in fees they paid to other parasites like them. THEN start wasting the money you extort from taxpayers... scum.
