  • How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb Debt And Associated QEternity [View article]
    "Fundamentally transforming America". What did it really mean when we first heard it? It just sounded like another empty campaign slogan. Oh how serious it really was!

    The country is moving to a permanent state government dependence.

    It's like suddenly we all woke up and found the country had been taken over by some cheap Twilight Zone script.

  • Hedge Funds Strut Their Stuff [View article]
    Northwest:

    Ask them: Oh, one more thing:

    SAC still is accountable for 10% of daily NYSE volume, and now that it can no longer capitalize on "expert networks" alpha, is lately best known for running the entire market's stops both up and down (see AAPL yesterday), a feat made possible due to the total collapse in broad institutional volume. Have a wonderful manipulated day.

    From Zero Hedge.

    Remember something about "big institutions" like endowments and pension plans. All have their consultants to pass the responsibility buck to. They behave little different from many retail investors chasing the latest hot sector.

    The "consultancy craze" has outsourced wisdom to third parties to cover their asses leaving most plans clueless and under water.

    It has been an annoying trend where the chickens have come home to roost.

    I only write the music (charts) not the words (headlines).

    Bradeen, my understanding is all volume must be reported but I could be wrong.

    I'll go with Charles Krauthammer on this one who states: "I'm a global warming agnostic. It's obvious polluting the atmosphere causes all manner of problems. But there may be other causes and unless every country is on board a unilateral decision is economic suicide".

    Then there's BMO's Donald Coxe (an old commodity veteran) who argues that sun spots have a major effect on climate. In the last 18 months there has been little sun spot activity which has caused cooling--er, maybe even on Mars (snicker).

    Please, no one else tell me to get a MAC. Our son tells us this as well. Every vendor I use says they won't support us "period" no matter the Windows (or Widows?) setup. What's a fella to do in that regard?

    F. Bradeen.........we cover 65 or so ETFs on our main menu. But in most portfolios we do as you suggest.

    Some folks have targeted and unique issues they're interested in. So, if they want to cobble together their own portfolios from the main menu, that's up to them.

  • Failure Of Leadership [View article]
    Clearly guts are in short supply. Policing the world is expensive (per Eisenhower) and none of our business. We can protect ourselves and our borders. Israel can take care of itself methinks. We don't need to play battleship globally. The UN is inept and we shouldn't try to do their job even as immoral and savage zealots kill and terrorize their own people.

    We need to take care of business at home.

    Easier said than done.

  • Compromise Seems Futile As Cliff Nears [View article]
    If this story is correct, it means the FBI had monitored all of Petraeus's emails. The WH knew and covered it up not wanting him to resign before the election. This is why they were able to shut him up about Benghazi since they had him by the short hairs.

    I think we'll be seeing more post election news that will confound even the MSM.
