BDI Falls 93%

The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is a number issued daily by the London based Baltic Exchange.  The index provides an assessment of the price of moving major raw materials by sea.  The BDI traces its roots to the Virginia and Baltick Coffeehouse in London’s financial district in 1744.  Taking in 26 routes measured on a timecharter and voyage basis, the index covers Handyman, Panamax and Capesize dry bulk carriers carrying a range of commodities including coal , iron ore and grain.

Will the US be CUT OFF from the World?  Watch the video, do some research and draw your own conclusions.


Update:  For those of you unaware of the recent news, the BDI has fallen 98% since this article was posted.  There is no merchandise being moved by sea.

Peter Schiff Debates Mayor of Lansing, Michigan

Here is Peter Schiff in a hot debate with the Mayor of Lansing, Michigan regarding the auto industry bail-out.

Note: in this first part it is stated that the Toyota Camry is the top rated hybrid.

Toyota DOES NOT have the highest rated hybrid. Here are the FACTS:

The 2008 Malibu (2009 ratings are not yet posted) was rated highest in class by the widely-respected J. D. Power & Associates firm. In fact, it defeated the Toyota Camry in that class to win The J. D. Powers 2008 Highest Initial Quality award. The Malibu scored 24 of 25 available points among the five categories surveyed by the Powers firm. The 2008 Toyota Camry received only 19 of the 25 in the same evaluation.

Legislation for Socialism in America

Not one word about this from the Main Stream Media… you remember them… those that should be shouting from the rooftops when Freedom and Liberty are in danger.

From WorldNetDaily Exclusive Commentary

The classic definition of socialism is: government control of the sources of production. A bill now before Congress, H.R. 2421, will give the federal government absolute control over all sources of production. This bill, if enacted, will instantly convert the United States into a socialist nation.
