NYTimes roundup, yee haa!

Three interesting tidbits from the jew run liberal media, er, I mean the New York Times.

1. Circumsions have been found to reduce HIV tranmissions by 65% in a recent South African study. The facts are in, not only does it look good, but it's now good for you.

And if it stops 65% of African HIV then it should probably stop around 187.3% of American HIV.
2. Wal-Mart wants to start a bank for the fourth time and this time it looks serious. Ho-lee shit.

If you thought it was creative when they rearranged their workers' timesheets so they didn't have to pay overtime, wait until they get a hold of your checking account.

Their main motivation is to recoup the fractions of a penny they pay to banks each time a customer uses plastic. When it comes to savings, Wal-Mart does not play. They claim they have no intention of creating a chain of consumer banks, but I trust Wal-mart like I trust this guy.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

3. Finally, last week Treasury Secretary John W. Snow, was in China shucking for American capitalism. He encouraged, China, whose savings rate, at 50%, is one of the highest in the world, to spend more, borrow more and save less like America, whose savings rate, at less than 0%, is one of the lowest in the world.

Why did China, which basically owns America due to our unsubstantiated consumer whoredom, entertain this nonsense?

Politeness I guess. Or perhaps a sense of circus-like curiousity.

In exchange, next month the Chinese Treasury Secretary will tour the U.S. and encourage Americans in strip malls to buy overpriced houses, $1,200 hangbags and big screen plasma TV's they can't afford.
