Quick thoughts-- 6/30/11

More quick thoughts coming your way... flying in the air like hand-flung chocolate creme pies..  Don't forget to duck!

Goldman Sachs Informs New York State of Plan to Cut 230 Jobs (Bloomberg) --  I guess this is what it was like in 'Star Wars' when Darth Vader handed out pink slips to some of the stormtroopers.

Stocks rise as Greece nears debt solution (AP) --  Let's see: market went up 72pts while 46 Greek people were injured fighting for their nation's survival.  So that's 1.565 US market points raised per Grecian person beaten or kicked.  Isn't math the coolest?

Amazon battles California sales tax (FT.com) -- Cali has a $9.6 billion deficit yet expects Amazon.com who didn't cause the debt, to pay towards it.  Amazon will leave state if tax law enacted.  Greece's leadership needs to take a page or two from Amazon how to stand up to bullies.

Should You Interview for a Low-Paying Job?  (US News & World Report) -- Only if you can handle the pressure of competing vs other candidates with multiple doctorates.  Dunkin' Donuts expects a lot from their workers, don't ya know...

New York set for boom in Gay Weddings (FT.com) --  How beautiful.  ~Thinking out loud.."Is it too late for me to go to law school, pass the Bar, and start practicing Divorce & Child Custody Law? Hmm.."

Obama: End Tax Breaks For Rich, Not Middle Class (CNBC)  -- I know I heard that somewhere before.. When was it?  Hmm.. Oh yes, right before the President signed an extension of the Bush tax cuts for EVERYONE last December.

Pending home sales up 8.2% in May (MarketWatch) -- Yippee!!  Oh wait, pending home sales were minus 11.3% in April - Darn!  But sales rose in Feb and March- Woo Hoo! But they had dropped in January - Double-darn...

John Kerry: "I Would Have Been A Good President, Maybe Even A Great One"  (NCP.com) -- Ehh.. Or maybe not...

'To Catch A Predator' Host Chris Hansen Allegedly Caught Cheating On His Wife  (Radar) -- Headline made me laugh.  Nice to see someone who profits from false entrapment get trapped via National Enquirer sting
