D3 Nadel Shilling for Constant Contact?

Am I going blind in my old age or is CCM Nancy Nadel (District 3: West Oakland + part of downtown) peddling online direct marketing schemes? With some help from Loreal?

Oh wait it’s not April 1st yet…. memory fades.  Sorry folks!  Had an itch to fill in for A Better Oakland‘s editor who’s probably moved out of Oakland by now, or will be any day now. And I can’t blame her given the city “leadership”‘s lack thereof.

We are in the middle of the Second Great Depression and as I predicted several years ago during the height of the credit bubble boom, it will take many years to escape this collapse and worse, it will probably lead to many wars and maybe, WWIII.  The relaxation of regulations of banking systems led directly to this mess.  The creation of the entire galaxy of bizarre paper entities which I call collectively, the Derivatives Beast, led to the creation of a huge shadow financial entity that is bigger than the value of everything on earth.  This is what the world’s top bankers are clinging to keep alive.  This is what hasn’t blown up…yet.  Meanwhile, whole  nations slide off the economic cliff.

The Wall Street Chosen One is floundering again.  I suspect, despite all the pushing by media owners and the GOP ‘leadership’ (sic) he isn’t going down too well with actual voters.  The GOP primaries are low turn out affairs this year but it may become a lot hotter now that Romney is fading fast.  Even Ron Paul, a good friend, came out ahead of Romney in Minnesota.

If I had iMovie…

I’d update Wassup for 2012 – locally and nationally.

Is there any windows app comparable to imovie?

Worth a read.
