Why is the 6mo T-Bill yielding better than the 30 year Bond?

I mean, hey call me old school tie republican and all that, but isn't that one of those, well, gosh, uh, less than polite things which should not occur during an actual republican administration based upon integrity and fiscal responsibility?

What? you mean that evil liberal program that the evil liberals foisted upon senior citizens is now also in the cross hairs of finding money so that the ProWarCrowd can get wood that there are american GI's getting killed overseas while they are in the rear with the beer...

Gosh, now how exactly is the Department of Homeland Security going to work it's majik voodoo dealing with a possible terrorist chemical or biological warfare agent, if we keep downsizing the national health programme so that we can find welfare jobs for former Arabian Stud Farmers who can not maintain a gig in the private sector....

Oh well.... Who cares anyway, americans have too much medical insurance as it is, so if there is a ChemBioWarFareAgent released, it really will not be a problem until americans need to get in touch with their claims adjustors....

Sales you just have to love

Making a big bet on the future of the nuclear power industry, the Toshiba Corporation said today that it had agreed to buy Westinghouse Electric, a builder of nuclear power plants, from British Nuclear Fuels P.L.C. for $5.4 billion.

A yes, what ever happened to the Westinghouse Hour on TV during the hey days of black and white TV. ( cf studio one ) Ah yes, for those long lost halcyon days, back when americans owned american corporations....
