Along with Insider Trading at MGM, the blogosphere is also going nuts over George Soros buying puts (a bet that the stock will go down) on MGM Resorts International back somewhere between June 30th and August 14th. To the conspiracy theorist, this is proof positive that George Soros is behind the shootings.
If we look at the SEC filings, we find that Soros Fund Management LLC placed a $42,242,000 bet that MGM’s stock would go down. I don’t know about you, but to me that’s a lot of money.
For Soros Fund Management LLC is this unusual? Well, let’s look at the other bets that stocks will go down in the same filing.

The Mandalay Bay hotel is owned by MGM and the blogosphere is a buzz with the talk of insider trading by the CEO James Murren. They are implying he knew the shooting was going to take place and dumped up to 80% of his stock beforehand.

Have you ever noticed the oath of office that is given to elected officials at the national level or to military personnel? The oath is not to the government, not to the president, not to congress, and not to the Senate. The oath is to defend the Constitution of the United States. Why?

Well, Budweiser insists on supporting the NFL and those that are actively spitting on the flag, the national anthem, and the soldiers fighting for our country. If that weren’t enough, Budweiser has an advertising campaign going (at least at Wal-Mart) claiming that they support our troops. Sorry Budweiser, you can’t have it both ways.

I was living in Los Angeles when Rodney King received his infamous beating. I remember clearly when the verdict of not guilty was announced. I was in a office building where professionals all dressed in suits and ties. Every. Last. Person. was shocked and disappointed in the verdict. How could the cops get away with such brutality against an unarmed person?
And then the riots started. Read the rest of this entry »
I was in the grocery store today and a middle aged gentleman was wearing a black tee-shirt with the saying Who would Jesus deport? across the back.
I went up to the gentleman and said Rumor has it that Jesus is going to deport most people to the fires of Hell. I’ll leave it as an exercise to the reader if that is a worse fate than being deported back to ones home country.
