  • Wall Street Breakfast: Net Neutrality To Sweep The Nation? [View article]
    Net "Neutrality" = "Free" broadband for the 47%, 16.1% taxes on the rest of us to pay for the "free" broadband.

    Move over Obamaphone, here comes the Obamanet.

    Plus the FCC mysteriously investigating every conservative website before elections (it will make the IRS look like a choir boy)

  • Greek Non-Drama - Has Syriza Really Given Up? [View article]
    The actual truth is that its the EU/Germany that has caved. Tsipras will present a back end loaded program of "reform" and get the money and the can will be kicked two more years down the road. I expect to see a program that promises deep cuts in 2018 or 2019.

    As for Schauble's threat of no more aid money, it has been made so many times and proven to be false so many times, it has zero crediblity.

    Anyway the Greeks carried out zero austerity to date. So the argument is about which stated reforms they greeks won't carry out anyway. Pointless and futile. All of this is drama designed to mask transfer of German money to Greeks.

  • Read This Before Shorting Anything! [View article]
    "if I had unlimited capital and could naked short sell, I could just keep selling until I clear out all the bids and depress the security to unjustifiable levels"

    Well then you have to cover your naked short and deliver the securities at some point. And at that point, you will be in a one man short squeeze.

    Naked short selling would be beneficial to true price discovery. With stock having to be borrowed it allows people to try to engineer short squeezes by buying up or calling back lent stock. It would be much harder to short squeeze by driving up the price alone without shrinking the float.
