I don't blog for money, so stats usually don't matter. But it does kind of hurt when I spend three days on an important story and the daily readership goes way down
. As usual, the stats will shoot up again as a result of some piffle-post scribbled out in fewer than twenty minutes.
After seven years, you'd thing this blogging thing would start to make sense.
As noted below, FOX Business News has been pushing pump-and-dump stock fraudsters. That's not
To me, it's interesting to note that:
1. Obama's SEC is doing nothing, nothing, nothing
about the newsletter-based pump-and-dumpers.
2. These guys have gained the trust of the masses not by having economics degrees or a proven corporate background but by spreading fear stories about imminent apocalypse -- a fact which tells us much about American psychology.
3. The pumpers seem to be sincere in their love for the great Cigarette Hag Queen of the Libertarians. Which proves that the dividing line between objectivism and sociopathology is pretty thin -- perhaps non-existent.
4. FOX is perfectly willing to make these shady operations (the N.I.A., the Heartland Institute) look legit.
