Dear Ynnatchkah:

Thanks for responding. You seem to know and have an understanding about financial markets and how ownership of 20% of the NASDAQ by Gulf States could be very, very dangerous for us. Why don't you write some more about it, but very simply and clearly so slow ones like I am can follow.

I know just a very little about how the financial world works, its all so complicated; but 20% of NASDAQ rings very loud alarm bells to me -- especially when making money may not be the primary goal of many of the the "investors." I also read that the Gulf States have, in the last few days, gotten control of 52% of the London Stock -- is it Exchange or Market? Our government has no control over London -- there isn't anything we can do about it. But NASDAQ, and control of other U.S. "strategics" is another story.

The outrage of the public was able to shame our government into stopping the Dubai Ports deal.

I hope what you say about the Press being completely controlled by Wall Street isn't true -- it didn't seem to be able to stop the outcry of the public regarding our ports. So I don't think they could keep from publicizing what the blogs are very noisy about. Then the government pays attention because of votes.

I don't like conspiracy theories much, but it is interesting that these two deals are under consideration while Ahmadinejad is here taking up all the time on the TV News. Anyway, it was certainly advantageous for them. I haven't heard a word about it on the News all day -- although Britney and OJ stories managed to get through.

It's the public now -- the press can't ignore noisy stuff going on in blogs. Much more needs to be written and discussed about this. And on the liberal blogs as well -- maybe especially them.

As far as what you said about what the Islamists are doing re controlling the financial world, and if they decide to "break" it -- the blame will go to the Jews -- of course you're right.

Sometimes humor says much more than straight, serious talk. Some of my friends don't think the following You Tube snippet from Saturday Nite Live is funny, but I do. Gave me a good chuckle and says it all. Blame the Jews for everything.
