the story, with it’s perspective, is storming the internet with the House under siege, and the Senate soon, but not fast enough, to follow:
APPLE HAS MORE CASH THAN U.S. GOVERNMENT
Apple is now more liquid than the United States government, the Financial Post reports.
you needn’t take my word for it, point your browser, here: http://thenextweb.com/apple/2011/07/29/apple-now-has-more-cash-than-the-u-s-government/
for the record, the hearty and ferocious Chip Brackley, it was, that first to alert me. and, my immediate response favored only the bold:
best practices as opposed to chimpanzees with shot-guns. so, here’s a thought… what if wanna-be Members of the House and Senate were required to pass a qualifying test, and sign an IOU or personal guarantee before they could take office?
WARNING, pointed visual effect:
the video above may be contrived. but, you likely get the point (about chimpanzees with guns, anyway). maybe we need to start discussing Laws of Natural selection on this blog agains seeing as how many Members of the House and Senate read it.
meanwhile, Chip’s quick witted response held greater promise:
“I am ALL for it. A little accountability would be nice. How about they get on our healthcare plan as well? We need the 2011 version of Ben Franklin and your boy Thomas Jefferson to step on the scene.”
there… this chapter in history, as I see it, is in the hands of posterity. and, with it you’ll not be able to lose the image of the chimpanzees with shot-guns, will you?
keep it in mind come the next round of elections.
meanwhile, and certainly not soon enough as well, look for my argument why you might consider margining your Apple stock (did you start buying in in 2001 when it was at $15 a share like I TOLD you to – and, have been since?), and shorting Google. don’t let me forget, seriously.
Chip will likely remind me. he’s a good man.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
