1. Maybe Cheney can send me $100,000 of his Halliburton profits so I
can feel optimistic too?

8. Next story: Goodyear to close Texas plant, cut jobs
well, it won't be the next story on Faux, but...

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061030/ap_on_bi_ge/goodyea...

AKRON, Ohio - Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. said on Monday that it plans to close a plant in Tyler, Texas, despite a strike by workers who were upset about the tire maker's plan to shut down the factory.

The move will eliminate about 1,100 jobs and is part of Goodyear's strategy to end some of its private label tire business....


The United Steelworkers, which represents Goodyear workers, said the announcement to close the Tyler plant was a slap in the face, particularly because the union took pay cuts, job losses and other concessions in 2000 to help get the company back on track financially.

"Now they seem committed to stripping away health care benefits from those who made the turnaround possible and to further close plants and abandon the business," said Tom Conway, USW vice president and chairman of the Goodyear negotiating team. "Their foolishness is outweighed only by their greed."

10. "Best economy in 40 years"
I laughed out loud when a Republican incumbent said that in a debate the other day, in response to a question regarding the economy. It's a competitive seat but sorry I don't remember the district. Both sides were accusing each other of plagarizing, if that's a hint.

Anyway, he went first so I was sure the female Democrat would pounce on the idiotic assertion, but she said nothing. A bland obviously prepared response. At that point I turned off the debate.

11. Hell yes, he made a couple of billion since he's been in office.
I'd say that's pretty good economics on a personal level. Just a couple of more wars and he'll be set for life.

Bankruptcies and mortage defaults are up. What's so good about it?
