Did former FED Chairman Alan Greenspan just say a mouthful? I think he did…I think he did. I don’t expect much to come of Greenspan’s recent thoughts. After all, he is a private citizen now and is entitled to his own opinion like any other American citizen — or that might be the argument of the Whitehouse as they’ll likely be doing some damage control to counter Greenspan. Ultimately though, Greenspan’s thoughts amount to a political “wedgie” given to the Commander in Chief Thief…not much else.

a question…

Posted by abu ameerah on Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Why is it the case that if Muslims (or anyone from the Middle East) are involved in a bombing/attack of some sort…the media rushes to the conclusion that such an attack is a nefarious terrorist plot…however…when it happens in Mexico it is merely an act of “sabotage”???

No shocking news here. However, anyone with any knowledge of Afghanistan and its turbulent history should have realized, many years ago, that this could be the only outcome of America’s war on terror & subsequent nation-building exercise. The “moderates” finally have something to rejoice in a free Afghanistan. One thing is for sure though … they’re certainly not growing soy. Thanks “W”!!!

investing the wrong way…

Posted by abu ameerah on Thursday, August 23, 2007

I am all for economic growth and development…but I have to ask…

Since when were we (Muslims) allowed to invest in casinos? What’s next…majority stock ownership of Anheuser-Busch?

Interesting article that looks into the many costs of globalization — particularly concerning the health of the world’s poor.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch owns myspace and nearly everything else media-related under the sun.

freakonomics?

Posted by abu ameerah on Wednesday, August 1, 2007

Robert Mugabe really knows the value of a dollar or $200,000

I’m quite sure Mugabe failed ECON 101 during his college days at Dictator U.
