$2,000,000,000 - The amount of money that JP Morgan has admitted that it will lose from derivatives trades gone bad. Many analysts are convinced that the real number will really end up being much higher.
Well I read the speech and it just seemed to me about half way through that he was saying "I " an awful lot so I decided to count how many times he referred to himself. It was more interesting than the speech. It was 57 times including a couple of "my" 's.

Neil Abercrombie is a staunch opponent of things such as the Bush tax cuts, most free trade agreements, the death penalty, the war in Iraq. In fact he was a main co-sponsor of the Homeward Bound Act that would basically bring our troops home within sixty days. Abercrombie consistently receives an F from most pro-business, anti-tax organizations such as Freedom Works, the National Taxpayers Union, etc. as noted on Project VoteSmart. My point is that you can't claim that Abercrombie appears to be in the pocket of corporations unless he's an awesome double agent.

Which, by the way, is the same amount that Congress allocated to both Denver and St. Paul to host the Republican and Democratic conventions
earlier this year.
