About Strategery

Strategery is a unique hedge fund.

It is the largest in the world, with expected initial capital of $700 billion. It has a free and unlimited credit line should it need more. It has no fixed mandate, though it is expected to initially focus on mortgage-backed securities. And it is the only fund backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.

Strategery is a way for you to be more patriotic. Supporting this fund is an American duty. Many people have already taken to wearing a green, red, and blue ribbon to symbolize and broadcast their support for this newest American institution.

    I’m normall a big FOX news fan but they’re pulling an MSNBC. There is no guarantee or provision in the bailout to force the firms to use the funds they receive to extend credit to the US economy! Fox News won’t cover this subject. Ask them why at: yourcomments@foxnews.com We have to defeat this disastrous legislation. Check my site SandySays1.wordpress.com
    for some tools to fight it.

    This was very humorous. I sent the link out with the following note.

    Hey, just found this website and it looks like it has HUGE upside potential. We all may want to look at getting jobs here. This will probably be an ever expanding company too. I am sure it will expand into other markets as it grows, so plenty of lateral growth potential once we get in.

    Here’s some more bailout humor – a really funny song about the Wall Street mess. Anything to lighten up a grim topic: Bailout song

    This bailout is just one more example of the indivisible handjob stroking irresponsible CEOs and CFOs with billions so that they can run the American economy even further into the ground. So much for Keynesian economics. If the goal is to stimulate the economy, why not give the money directly to the American taxpayers? The government could do twice as much good for the economy by returning half as much money (as the bailout requires) directly to the hardworking American taxpayers. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush administration.
