Who are you voting for/did you vote for?

The yellow party or the blue party? 


I dont vote for a party... I vote for candidates that speak the truth. If a candidate was from the pink party yet espoused truth, then I would vote pink.

I have taken some videos of USD law to show prospective students the beautiful campus and classrooms.

If you want other videos of campus locations or of San Diego in general, then let me know and I will see what I can do.
USD is THE most beautiful campus in the most beautiful city with the best weather. USD has been the best choice I have made in a while, dont take my word for it, watch the videos and judge for yourself.

"Why the U.S. stock market will crash tomorrow, Jan 22, 2008"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWyygiyPbdA




Not exactly a crash, but it's not doing well.


Yeah because the Fed keeps slashing interest rates, which only delays the inevitable. 
Our economy has moved from a savings to a debt based system. Which is more cyclical in terms of  boom and recession seasons.  With a debt based system, eventually the bills come due, then spending grinds to a halt. When the US deficit bills comes due, just hope we are in a position to pay it, and we dont go bankrupt.  The top US accountant in the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has been touring the country trying to warn of our countries debt vs. our excessive spending. 

Ron Paul has been saying this was imminent for over a year.  He has been saying we have a flawed fiscal policy for decades.  The man knows econ.

"People are up to their eyeballs in debt, and they're being asked to borrow more," said Mike Schenk, senior economist for the Credit Union National Association.

"This is a cure for the wrong disease. It makes everybody feel good, but it's not going to have any ongoing benefit," said Daniel Alpert, managing director of Westwood Capital LLC. "We need to get ourselves out of a mountain of debt and overvalued properties."

Saxo bank predicted that our economy would go into a major recession and because of this Ron Paul would be elected our next president. http://newsfromrussia.com/world/americas/25-12-2007/103144-economy-0


He is the only candidate running for president that is educated enough to understand the recession we are headed for...

And

The only candidate that has been talking about this... and the only guy that has a solution.

Watch out for the US stock market to plunge tomorrow when it opens.  Ron Paul has been predicting this recession ever since he started campaigning in Jan. of 2007.  A whole year ago.

Look for apps to law school to go up.  More competition for openings.

Ron Paul finished 2nd in Nevada. He is electable, dont let Fox news tell you who to vote for..

"He is the only one who understands what is going on in the world." -Jim Rogers (highly respected billionaire investor) http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/ViewPost.aspx?bpid=24432&t=01007146184382914537


The dollar is the reserve currency for the world.  The dollar has not been backed by anything since 1971.  Our national debt stands at over $9,000,000,000,000 (9 trillion).  That is $30,000 per man woman AND child in America.  If you add all of our entitlement programs, add another $400,000 per person.  As soon as the world realizes that this debt will never be paid, then we no longer have a credit line from the rest of the world.  Then our economy will come tumbling down on itself.  No economic stimulus package will work.  Even the top US accountant
at the Government Accountability Office has been touring the country about this... NO ONE WILL LISTEN THOUGH.  "Ron Paul is the only one that is speaking about cutting spending right now"

Stock markets plunge worldwide
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080121/ap_on_bi_ge/world_markets;_ylt=AqmF0Yo4JHYwJ9mPyWBmEdus0NUE

 LONDON - Stocks fell sharply worldwide Monday following declines on Wall Street last week amid investor pessimism over the U.S. government's stimulus plan to prevent a recession.

U.S. markets were closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but the downbeat mood from last week's market declines there circled through Europe, Asia and the Americas. Britain's benchmark FTSE-100 slumped 5.5 percent to 5,578.20, France's CAC-40 Index tumbled 6.8 percent to 4,744.15, and Germany's blue-chip DAX 30 plunged 7.2 percent to 6,790.19.

In Asia, India's benchmark stock index tumbled 7.4 percent, while Hong Kong's blue-chip Hang Seng index plummeted 5.5 percent to 23,818.86, its biggest percentage drop since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

In Canada, the S&P/TSX composite index on the Toronto Stock Exchange fell 4.8 percent. Brazilian stocks plunged 6.6 percent on the main index of Sao Paulo's Bovespa exchange, and Argentina's benchmark Merval index fell 6.3 percent to close under 1,900 for the first time since August 2006.

Investors dumped shares because they were skeptical that an economic stimulus plan President Bush announced Friday would shore up the economy that has been battered by problems in its housing and credit markets. The plan, which requires approval by Congress, calls for about $145 billion worth of tax relief to encourage consumer spending.

"We've taken our lead from the Asian markets who have not been impressed by the U.S. There's debate if there's going to be a recession in the U.S. I don't think there's much chance of that though," said Richard Hunter, an analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown Stockbrokers Ltd. in London.

Concerns about the outlook for the U.S. economy, a major export market for Asian companies, has sent the region's markets sliding in 2008. Just last Wednesday, the Hang Seng index sank 5.4 percent.

"It's another horrible day," said Francis Lun, a general manager at Fulbright Securities in Hong Kong. "Today it's because of disappointment that the U.S. stimulus (package) is too little, too late and investors feel it won't help the economy recover."

Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 index slid 3.9 percent to close at 13,325.94 points, its lowest close in more than two years. China's Shanghai Composite index plunged 5.1 percent, partly on worries about mainland Chinese banks' exposure to risky U.S. mortgage investments.

"People are certainly nervous about a potential recession in the U.S. spilling over to the rest of the world," said David Cohen, Director of Asian Economic Forecasting at Action Economics in Singapore.

Cohen said there may be "still some wariness" about politicians being able to come up with a compromise and act sufficiently quickly on a stimulus package. "I think the impact would be marginal anyway," he said.

Investors took cues from the negative reaction to the president's plan on Wall Street on Friday, when the Dow Jones industrial average slid 0.5 percent to 12,099.30, bringing its loss for the year so far to nearly 9 percent.

Traders also have shrugged off assurances from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke that the U.S. central bank is ready to act aggressively which means a likely big interest rate cut later this month to help the sagging economy.

Some analysts predict that Asia won't suffer dramatically from a U.S. recession because increased trade and investment within Asia has made the region less reliant on the United States than in the past. Excluding Japan, 43 percent of Asia's exports go to other nations in the region, Lehman Brothers calculates, up from 37 percent in 1995.

But on Monday, uncertainty and pessimism reigned.

In Tokyo trading, exporters got hit hard, partly because of the yen's recent strength against the dollar. Toyota Motor Corp. lost 3.3 percent and Honda Motor Co. sank 3.4 percent.

Shares of Bank of China dropped 6.4 percent in Hong Kong after the South China Morning Post newspaper reported that the bank is expected to announce a "significant write-down" in U.S. subprime mortgage securities, citing unidentified sources. In Shanghai, the bank's stock declined 4.1 percent.

India's benchmark Sensex index fell 1,353 points, or 7.4 percent its second-biggest percentage drop ever to 17,605.35 points. At one point, it was down nearly 11 percent.

The decline hit companies across the board, with power utility Reliance Energy Ltd. falling 16.4 percent. Major software company Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. slid 7.6 percent

"A gloomy U.S. climate has affected the global markets. Even if those markets recover, it will take sometime for the recovery to reach India because today's fall has been so drastic," said Jayant Pai, of the Mumbai investment company IL&FS Ltd.

Still, Pai and others suggested that the declines could lead to a buying opportunity.

"The sell-off today takes us close to the bottom," she said.

Since the start of the year, Japan's Nikkei index has declined 13 percent, while Hong Kong's blue-chip index is down more than 14 percent. Even China's Shanghai index which nearly doubled last year has fallen 6.6 percent over the same period and nearly 20 percent from its all-time closing high on Oct. 16.

You may think that Ron Paul's views are radical.  But take this quote to heart.

"In a time of universal deceit, the truth is revolutionary" - George Orwell.

my Republicanism is mostly a shtick, if you'll recall.

i wasn't sure if it was all shtick or just the drum-beating part.

i wish somebody would grow enough backbone to cut programs.

TITCR.  of course, it's impossible to get elected without making myriad promises.

I'll tell you, my favorite part about Obama is that he hasn't been around long enough to owe too many favors to all the different interest groups--especially private corporations.  So he's most likely to be unbeholden to all the lobbying interests that make governing in the best interest of the people of the United States nearly impossible.

I do like him for that.  But raising taxes to expand the scope of the federal government is not something I'm crazy about.

That said, there aren't any true fiscal conservatives left; they want to have their cake and eat it too, which is why our deficit is so f-ing high.  In order to cut taxes, you have to cut programs.  And like you said, nobody has the balls for that.

You should check out Ron Paul.  He always talks about cutting programs.  And he has talked about it for the past 20 years or more. He is running for President on the Republican side.  He came within 2,000 votes of third place in the Iowa Caucuses.  And Saxo bank predicted that our economy would go into a major recession and because of this Ron Paul would be elected our next president. http://newsfromrussia.com/world/americas/25-12-2007/103144-economy-0


He is the only person running for president that is educated enough to understand what is happening right now..

lulz @ the internet Ron Paul trolling.   I don't mind the guy, but the poo he's talking about is a little bit too rad for me.  I'd like to see a lot of changes, but he's talking about an entirely new government... this makes me nervous, for whatever reason.

You might think that his views are radical.  But you do realize that we have a congress.  Change doesnt happen overnight.  Yes, he would like all of these changes, for good reasons, because we are in deep doodoo.

Big changes for big problems.  The big changes could not happen overnight, that is why our govt. is set up the way it is, so someone cant just come in a totally wreck it beyond repair.

Ron Paul has solutions to our problems, and it would take a lot of others to see this before these big changes take place.

Do you have any better options for the presidency?  Do they have solutions? 

We owe $9,000,000,000,000 in national debt.  That is $30,000 per person. All of the other candidates want to keep spending as far as I can see.
