WHERE'S DOPES?

MAYBE HE/SHE WAS ONE OF THE 45,000 CITIGROUP EMPLOYEES ABOUT TO GET THE AXE

MAYBE HE/SHE WAS A COUNTRYWIDE, FANNIE MAE, FIRST FED OR WAMU INVESTOR

OR MAYBE HE/SHE FINALLY FIGURED OUT THAT HE/SHE WAS JUST PLAIN WRONG. DEAD WRONG.

NBC reported early Monday that the bank is planning a large number of layoffs as part of a response to recent huge write-offs for bad mortgage investments.

CNBC described the layoffs as "massive" and said they would not be restricted to the fixed income and mortgage divisions.

In April, Citi set layoffs of 17,000 people, or about 5% of its more than 300,000 employees.

The CNBC report said division heads at Citi had been told to start planning for layoffs, and said the cuts could be as high as 45,000.

I agree, Keith. And I've noticed that a lot of stubborn sheeple or trolls are now trying to change the discourse here on this blog, by saying things like, "Oh well, we are going to have a slow down but everything it's going to be alright since were are the almighty USA"; "the economy is slowing down and is affecting the housing market but that's just a blip or a cycle"...

These same idiots were cheering "the great economy" a few weeks ago and callings doom & gloomers or tin foil, but now they are changing their postings little by little. Every time they try to post something more rosy and false, bham, the market and the dollar go into the toilet next day. Whatta a bunch of tools. How do you idiots feel being the dumbest people in the room?

DOPES was one of these ignorant people who are now putting the tail between the legs and changing their postings or plain hiding in shame. I hope you lose your shirts. Hey, you can always wrap your Made in China American flag and use it as a skirt...just like Giuliani likes to wear dresses.

The brother of a friend of mine
is still (luckily) working for CountryWide Financial in Pheonix, Arizona - but within their marketing division.

I'm not sure how long that will last though, seems CWF is really taking more and more of a beating.

Meanwhile Angelo cashes out his millions so he and his immediate family can live untouched by the coming fall-out for so many US citizens.

Gotta love the crook Wall Street and its corrupt boot licker CNBC and MSM, who are calling the biggest depression since 1929 as a quick "Market Correction".

DOPES usually posted when there was some tiny bit of good news to crow about. It's been a long time since there was even a sliver of good news that had any credibility.

Dopes can't hide his H2.

I am pretty sure Dopes was Greg Swann, few people can be so naive as the ship is sinking.
In my opinion he is throwing in the towel way to early, the real show is just starting.

HSBC fears stock markets have not factored in credit crunch
By Sean Farrell, Financial Editor
Published: 15 November 2007

HSBC has warned that markets were underestimating the effects of the credit crunch on the wider economy as the bank wrote down $3.4bn (£1.7bn) at its US consumer finance business for the third quarter.

Michael Geoghegan, HSBC's chief executive, and Stuart Gulliver, the head of investment banking, said there would be a slowdown in the US and UK economies as the credit crunch squeezed banks' ability to provide credit.

Mr Gulliver said share prices are "trading as if the world is really terrific" and that, excluding the banking sector, the US stock market was at an all-time high. This was "seriously puzzling" and did not take account of the impact on growth from banks limiting credit and charging higher prices for loans, he added.

Get ready for BankOfAmericaAsia, JPMorganChinaBankCo, CitigroupAbuDhabi. One of these banks will merge with a trade surplus country's government controlled wealth fund.

Frank, you were the historian who pontificated that our US consitution forbid any government interference with the "markets".

Well what entity can fix this mess if not the government? Leave it to the markets? The mortgage bubble crisis "is" the market. A belief in free trade and free markets was the cause of the problem.

PS- what rates do you charge for your speaking/training seminar? My sales reps. are so stupid that I thought you might be able to help them. You know, rev em up and show em how to really sell.

In short what are you charging (or what is the market charging) for your personal brand of bullshit?

Let me know.

---------------

The cause of the bubble crisis was the Federal Reserve's manipulation of interest rates and the GSEs' motrgage subsidations.

Uncle Scam screws up everything he touches.

Quite the contrary ... my girlfriend hates Scottsdale even more than I do. Yes, it's hard to believe anyone could hate it more than I, but it's true!!!

She's from Westchester County, NY, so I could understand why she was repulsed by Scottsdale from day one.

Yes, leave it to the markets. I doubt that anything short of a total market collapse will be enough to press the proverbial "reset" button and set people straight again.

Any government intervention, assistance, or bailouts will only prolong this mess and won't fix a damn thing.

And if you're wondering why all the emphasis on Scottsdale, it's because Scottsdale epitomizes everything that is wrong with America today. It's a microcosm of people who believe they are entitled to live like millionaires without having to do any real work or provide any value to society, and that if they can't maintain their millionaire lifestyles on $30,000 a year then the government should give them handouts.

Scottsdale = the worst of modern-day America.

So I guess Franklin Roosevelt was wrong? He should have just let the depression run it's course. Of course there was that little issue with Adolf Hitler that needed taking care of. We should have let the markets take care of him as well?

The law of the United States is the "general welfare" of it's citizens and their posterity.

That's governments only real role. And if that means intervening in the so called "markets" then by our constitution they have every right and obligation to do just that.

I dont know where you get the idea that government is constitutionally bound to stay out of the financial markets. That's an insane reading of our constitution.

Had Wall Street not overturned most of FDR's banking regulations you wouldnt have the mess we have today.

There is no such thing as "free markets" there are only manipulated markets.
