35. Morning Marketeers.....
:donut: and lurkers. A sign of things to come I think. I think these German investors might have found a more sympathetic judge here in the US. I think when some of these folks in the US get wind of how underfunded their pensions are-they will be in the in the streets with tar and pitch forks. Texas Teachers Retirement fund is in better shape than most but the teachers here are very active and have done what they could to blunt Perry's appointments. We have lots of friends in the legislator and the teachers single handedly got rid of some odious legislators this last election and believe me when I say it was a shot heard all the way to the halls in Austin. We may have lost the governorship-but he doesn't have much power-it is the legislator and the House Speaker that has the keys to the kingdom and they have a renewed respect for teachers, despite the national trend.
Well, gotta run.

Happy hunting and watch out for the bears.
