  • Why Oil Will Drop [View article]
    I LOVE it. Whenever a writer to SA wants to disagree with a posted article, the reason is....CHINA! Why is the dollar going down? CHINA! Why will the dollar rally? CHINA! Who is afraid of the riots in Cairo? CHINA! Who cares about the riots in Cairo (other than me, that is)? CHINA! Why are oil prices rising? CHINA! Why are natural gas prices falling? CHINA!

    I heard the same thing abaout Japan back in the 1980s; now Japan is a washed up backwater of retirees and pachinko players.

    Who's fault is that? CHINA!

  • Obama can jawbone corporate executives all he wants to try to persuade them to boost hiring, but they're not likely to "get in the game" until they're convinced he's really on their side. In any case, investors have been more prone to reward companies for holding back on pretty much everything, including workers.  [View news story]
    What a joke. I would have told the moron to go drinkin' with his Chicago Bear buddies. The Anointed One sure knows how to tell other people what to do with their money.

  • Bond Market to Fed: Your QE2 Logic Was Wrong [View article]
    Pundit you realize your articles are better than the combined output of the FED, the US Dept of Commerce, and 90% of the economists at US Universities, I guess all the double dippers have jumped on a slow Baltic Dryship to China.

  • Beware: True Unemployment Is Closer to 10% [View article]
    I love the way people want the unemployment rate to reflect people who work less than 40 hours as 'underemployed.' Tell me ladies and gents, how about all the people who work fifty, sixty, seventy hours a week as entrepreneurs? Are the OVEREMPLOYED? Should we adjust the data for these people? And you thought NPR was biased.....

  • Is Something Wrong With the BLS Employment Model? [View article]
    The model is wrong if and only if you are the ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD with the foresight and statistical knowledge on how to adjust to the socioeconomic variables you suggest, most of which have been yacked about, analyzed and foreseen for decades. Remember, my data don't have to be good; they just have to be better than yours. None of the problems you outline seem intractable to a statistician as time allows for better analysis.

  • ISM Manufacturing Report: Nearly a Blowout [View article]
    What? where are the fifty letters from lefty luddites still hoping for a double dip, and wondering why todays illiterate and innumerate high school grads can't find jobs in manufacturing? The silence is just PLEASANT!

  • The Triumph of Davos [View article]
    I agree. Cngratulations to the author for providing me with a full bellied laugh at lunchtime. I daresay the stuxnet virus does more in a day than DAVOS will do in our lifetimes.

  • Alice in EVland, Part III: Cost Benefit Analysis for Dummies [View article]
    Wow...if a holier than thou Liberal Rag like the Washington Post can diss the Nissan Leaf for outrageous claims, unholy subsidies, and range anxiety, the prospect for EVs must truly be dim.

    Whats next? An article at HuffPo suggesting we all buy SUVs?

  • U.S. Energy Policy Is Responsible for Unrest in Egypt [View article]
    I KNEW someone would blame Amerika for this sooner or later! To me all Egypt proves is the advantage of calling out the Ohio National Guard sooner, rather than later.

    The Anointed One looks like Jimmy Carter more and more with each passing day!

  • Examining the Consensus View of Intel [View article]
    Value Line traditionally is very optimistic about our economy, and investing longer term. This puts them in the outhouse at times like this, when pessimism runneth rampant. In an economic recovery (which everyone except a few SA ninnies like Tyler Durden believe is well under way) it is perfectly reasonable to expect margins to swell.

    But thank you very much for showing investors how to 'back out' assumptions by looking at the figures more closely.

  • Has Ben Bernanke broken the PBOC the way George Soros broke the BoE? James Rickards makes the case that the FOMC chair's money printing operation has forced China to either revalue its currency or face civil unrest over spiraling prices.  [View news story]
    Old hat and stale news. Far better leverage in the agricultural markets. If China buys less US debt or witholds rare earths, just cut agricultural feed exports to china and watch food riots within days. Agreeing to provide Nukes to Japan, S. Korea and Taiwan would shake up the Maoists a bit, as well.

  • Four 'Uncomfortable Situations' to Watch in Early 2011 [View article]
    <<As I have stated many times over the past year, a region cannot have just one currency if capital flows within the region are not restricted and if the political entities within the union continue to conduct their fiscal policies independently of one another. >>

    HUH? USA has had both for 250 years. Go Amerika!

  • Another Major Setback for MannKind's Inhaled Insulin [View article]
    Your point is simple: we SHOULDN'T have an FDA, or the FDA should be strictly advisory, much like Consumer reports and other private rating agencies. Doing so would unleash a torrent of private sector investment and innovation which would make America a world leader in medical technology.

  • How the U.S. Economy Has Been Tanking for 60 Years [View article]
    Karl reminds me of J Kenneth Galbraith who made a fool of himself for 40 years after WWII forecasting the 'resumption' of the great depression. Finally they gave em a Nobel Prize to shut 'em up.
