The Jury Talks Back

Two things…

First, I’m glad the UN sent that strongly worded memo to North Korea…

I mean, if they hadn’t, Kimmie might have decided he could restart his nuke-programs…

Oh, wait…

North Korea vowed Tuesday to bolster its nuclear deterrent and boycott six-party talks aimed at its denuclearization in protest of a U.N. Security Council statement condemning the country’s recent rocket launch.

*sigh*  I wish I could say that I was surprised, but I’m not.  President Obama and his entire administration’s utter incompetence is going to get us all killed by some random foreign power that decides it wants to take out the big kid on the block to prove how tough they are (I like to call this the “Fastest gun in the west” syndrome).

Oh, and it looks like the Treasury Dept has finally caught up to the rest of us.

The Times, quoting unidentified sources, said the Treasury Department has directed officials at General Motors (NYSE: GM) to lay the groundwork for a “surgical” bankruptcy filing that could last as short as a few weeks for portions of the company. Those portions would be the “good” parts of the company, and the “less desirable” parts of the company would remain in court for much longer and possibly be liquidated, according to the Times.

Now I don’t think for a second that it will be anything close to surgical, unless you consider hacking off whole limbs with nothing but a bone saw and a bullet to bite on is surgery.  Also, it’s going to be a long process, since the unions are certain to raise all kinds of Holy Hell over the healthcare obligations GM will be divesting itself of.

And boy, I’m glad they decided to have GM just file for bankruptcy, instead of pumping billions and billions of dollars into it, and THEN decided to do what should have been done in the first God Damn place!!!

Oh, wait…

Truly, the country is in the very best of hands…
