    One thing I learned from the Article is that I’m incredibly uninformed.

    We have a Goolsbee to make fun of. What’s a Gooslbee?

    Apparently we’ll find out at 3pm.

    3pm….. Eastern, Pacific, Central, Mountain?

  3. BuyerOfGoods3 says:

    5 minute Consumerist Alarm has passed — We have now missed the meeting.

    It was EDT.

      It’s over already? Gee, I wonder why D’s polling numbers are low. Simply coming out every few weeks and saying things are getting better isn’t going to help.

    What does it mean when his stand up bit a few months ago runs longer than this segment? Just curious.

    This is entirely unfair…

    Why are international banks who transfer money through the US from sanctioned/terrorist countries through the use of lying and trickery being allowed to keep their business charter, and are just being fined. Money that directly kills our citizens?

    Where did all the debt go? Why are the banks not being asked to actually present a current/actual value for all their property, not the inflated prices they are saying the property is worth that no one is buying?

    “Austan Goolsbee” sounds like a nickname Shawn would give to Gus on “Psych.”

  7. backinpgh says:

    That is like the craziest name ever. sounds like a comic book character, or young adult novel protagonist.

    ‘Austan Goolsbee’, ironically, is Lithuanian for ‘one term’.
