Bill would move kicker money into rainy-day fund

BY Harry Esteve

SALEM -- Lawmakers said Tuesday that they're ready to take on one of Oregon's most sacred cows: the kicker tax refunds.A bipartisan group of legislators unveiled a bill to siphon off all or part of any future surplus and put the money into the state's rainy-day savings account rather than sending it back in checks to taxpayers.If approved by the Legislature, the issue would go to Oregon voters in a general election. Kicker refunds are locked in the state constitution, which can't be amended without a statewide vote.

Jim Cramer (Democrat) slams Obama's "radical" economic policies

Jim Cramer, one of the loudest Wall Street supporters of Barack Obama prior to the election, may now be one of the first well-known liberals to start saying publicly what many of the rest of us non-liberals have been saying for weeks or months. While the Democrats have had some fun in recent days with the mini-tiff between Rush Limbaugh and Michael Steele, now we have a high-profile Democrat with a large following (though many people aren’t sure why) calling the president out as the radical that he is.

Stock market gets Obama-ed again on Tuesday

On Tuesday, the stock markets put in another dismal performance, with all major indices closing down on the day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 6726, down 37 points, about 20 points above its low and 125 points below its mid-day high. And immediately after the bell, futures are trading substantially lower, as if the Dow were down another 25 points or so.  The market closed at levels last seen in October, 1996. Technology stocks were slightly stronger, with the Nasdaq down only two points, but also much closer to its daily low than high.

Stock futures reflecting national economic destruction

As I write this just before 9 PM Mountain Time on Sunday, stock index futures are pointing to another very weak open on Monday morning, with Dow Jones futures trading well below 7,000. Asian stocks are getting slammed, with shares of HSBC halted and the market anticipating weak earnings, a dividend cut, and a large sale of stock at a highly discounted price. And that’s a bank that’s doing well.
