  • Cardinal FANG, Fetch The Comfy Chair [View article]
    Don't know that FB is going to "Drive Sales." The view that they're not selling stuff may be behind their underperformance. I suspect that in the next several months many analysts will come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter as much as they thought. Money is money.

  • Wal-Mart Stock Has Suffered Enough [View article]
    If you wait for the perfect entry point you never make money. There is too much support for WMT, in the form of buybacks and actual profit, for it to go to $50, unless the Dow goes to 10,000.

    That's my conclusion, although I haven't pulled the trigger on it yet. I'm pretty happy with my current positions, AAPL and GOOGL and AMZN. Got especially strong in AMZN, when lots here were saying it was worthless. I haven't heard from them in some time...

    538 did a story very similar to mine, with numbers. http://53eig.ht/1KI4hfD I didn't see it before I wrote, but the numbers agree with me.

    If the most efficient way to reduce population were through war, then the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and the south side of Chicago would be depopulated by now.

    The 2nd Amendment was only interpreted as giving any legitimacy to gun ownership in 2007, D.C. vs. Heller, written by Justice Scalia. Don't buy the nonsense that "the founders" wanted militias formed against the government. It is, in fact, strictly a militia amendment, meant for things like the 1786 Shay's Rebellion and the 1994 Whiskey Rebellion. We really thought militias could do the work in of a standing army until the War of 1812 proved they could not.

    Because they need cash and can't get it from the oil they own.

  • It Was Just A Correction: Take Advantage [View article]
    On the other hand we recovered from both those incidents and moved on to higher highs. And the circus must come to town some time.

    When anyone, or any group, becomes more powerful than the government, they become the government. This applies to the Koch Brothers as much as it does Mexican Narcotraffickers.

    What that means is I'm a democrat. Also a Democrat. I don't mind people being anti-Democratic. I do mind their being anti-democratic, and rejecting the legitimacy of government that is of the people, by the people, and for the people.

    Actually, prices don't usually increase nearly enough, and unemployment doesn't grow nearly enough, to offset minimum wage increases. Especially when government spending on income assistance is taken into account.

    To whom much is given, much is expected. I guess Jesus Christ was a socialist.

    The problem with a consumption tax is that those who are hoarding the money, and refusing to recycle it, are not hit by it.

    Give me a good old-fashioned Death Tax that makes damned sure my kids won't be ruled by Paris Hilton or some worthless Walton great-grandbaby. It's important that anyone can rise. It's also important that anyone can fall.

    Best way to reduce global population is through prosperity. Once a family has a roof, food, and hope for their kids, they tend to make fewer kids. In this way the population bomb has already been defused in most of the world, where birthrates are below replacement.
