VIDEO: No glee in trade war

Bill Radke Oct 8, 2010

That jobs report was less than the sunny —
Looks like the Fed will be printing money.

Japan has slashed its interest rate
and that’s set off a great debate.
If every state

And a trade war
would come to the fore.
And soon we’re exchanging goods no more
And that… economists abhor.

A shocking exposure
about foreclosure:
Some of them were less than kosher.

And the Beatles have fewer hits than “Glee.”
The musical show on Fox TV
just passed the guys who did Ob-la-di.
