  • One Photo That Will Convince You To Sell China [View article]
    That is what all the bankers in Wall Street would look like today, if our tax payer money weren't used to bail them out in 2008/09.

    Blankfein selling lemons and Jamie selling tea, in tea cups.

    Obama collecting protection money in the market every Monday.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greece Votes 'No' - Now What? [View article]
    When you have refused to make the mortgage payments, setting fire to your house and chuckling to your family "Watch how the bank gives me forgiveness for the payments I missed and a new mortgage with lower interest rates - that I'm still not going to pay hahaha"...just is unlikely to work...

    The notion that "Surely the bank will never allow my family to be homeless after I burn down the house"....is just plain silly...

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greece Votes 'No' - Now What? [View article]
    There comes a time when the punishment for a recidivist stops being about rehabilitation and becomes more for deterrence of other potential offenders.

    Merkel may have reached that point with Greece.

    Now it may be more useful to make Greece an example of what happens when Merkel is crossed...

  • Greece Referendum: No - 61.1%. Yes - 38.9% [View news story]
    Greeks voting "NO!!!!!" reminds me exactly of George Costanza quitting his job...

    ...and then regretting it and showing up for work on Monday as if nothing had happened...

    I can see Merkel sitting there at the Eurozone meeting asking tomorrow "Is that Greece over there? What is it doing here?"

  • The Plight Of Greek Pensioners? [View article]
    I am looking for the world's smallest violin. Greeks need to learn that there is no free lunch. Alas there is no investable thesis here because one cannot predict the actions of a small bunch of elites.

  • Why Is Fitbit Flying And Will It Continue? [View article]
    to throw my 0.02...at my gym, I don't ever see the regulars wear anything except the iPhone and a pair of ear buds. The newbies that show up for a couple of workouts and and then never reappear, yes, they seem festooned with all these watches and fitbits.

    The regulars ignore everyone and just work out. The dilettantes stop, look at thier smart watch/fitbit, immediately hammer out social media updates, text. selfie and in make a pain of themselves, oblivious to the eye rolls directed at them...as they ensconce themselves in various equipment in their fashionable new clothing...

    fortunately, they seem to be a self limiting phenomen...but the gist is no person serious about working out really needs or uses a fitbit/smartwatch...no doubt some twenty somethings in the Bay area will feel the need to quantify how hard they chewed their ethical conflict free whole grain organic bagel...

  • Ford Is Staying Up With The Times With New Car Sharing Program Trial [View article]
    I tried Zipcar once a few years ago. It quickly became apparent that the traditional rental car companies were far cheaper. Car sharing is probably going to be a niche.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Where Do We Go From Here? [View article]
    One minor change in the Greek position...

    "We still aren't going to do any austerity or reforms or spending cuts whatsoever, but now we will publicly say we will, so that you will give us the money"

    Reminds me of

    "You will get your phone back only if you promise to keep your room clean, do your homework and not talk back to me"

    "OK daddy, I will keep my room clean, do my homework and I will never, ever talk back to you again. Now can I have my phone back please?"

    The Chinese leadership's stock schemes remind me of Wile E. Coyote's schemes which involve rockets strapped to his back. Somehow they never seem to end well...

  • Coal companies jump as Supreme Court strikes down EPA mercury rules [View news story]
    But with the investment decisions already made to invest in nuke and Nat. Gas and Solar and what not, who is going to go back and draw up plans for new coal fired plants? The demand from the installed base will only go down, maybe just a bit slower.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greek Crisis Batters Markets Worldwide [View article]
    @Crademan

    I didn't see anywhere in my original comment where I mentioned skin color. The first mention of skin color came from you. British colonies include Australia, New Zealand, and many other countries. I believe you are covering up your original ad hominem attack on my comment on public pensions, by still race baiting further. Your fake apology is worse than your original comment.
