Another installment of occasional updates on how we are doing out there

  • Both the US stocks and home values have each lost $5 trillion in value

  • Fidelity Investments to layoff 1,300 workers

  • The Gap announced a new line of clothing called 'Hope'. Inspired by the Obama victory

  • Circuit City says it is closing 155 stores

  • Toymaker Mattel lays off 1,000 workers

  • A HS football coach in Chelsea, Mass., is accused of spending the team's uniform money at strip club

As usual one of these is false

answer - No Obama clothing line...yet

The Gap should give you credit for that idea... and in a few years - heck maybe months, someone should come out with a new line called 'cringe' also in honor of 'The One.'

You are a beacon of hope and inspiration:)

I'd buy the "cringe" wear....I am annoyed by "The One"

The Cult of Obama is getting more annoying by the day. On Wednesday there was a story about a woman who gave birth to twins that day and named them Barack and Michelle. Then there was a story this morning that a lady gave birth to a girl and named her after Obama's two daughters.

"Yes WE DID" is really bugging me. I'm sure to see a lot of that saying all over.

I actually believed your GAP one.

Rob, how many baby-Zinedine in France in the year 98?
I told you, my husband is called Eddy because of the same processus. He had suffered his all youth with this name. Fortunately , the priest (the only one who gets a clear mind) refused to baptize him Eddy, because this name wasn't a French Christian-Saint name, so, for the church he is Michel. For civil status he's Eddy.
The line HopObama could become a collector !? Here, they're a Voodoo-doll at the image of Sarkozy, in a box, with needles in it. Hey! wait a minute I could make a post with that.
Oh, no! I remember! President sued the manufacturer. I don't want to wake up tomorrow and realize special agent delete my blog.
