  • Anticipating Peak Oil [View article]
    YEah right...let the government run the oil industry like it runs health care, the post office, the dept of education, and the IRS. I really remember that government SYNfuels program doing us a lot of good.

  • Anticipating Peak Oil [View article]
    Peak oil, global warmingism, paradigm shift, black swans, Al & Tipper, the Anointed One....all fantasies that have or will die a long, slow death. Increases in efficiency is the use of fossil and other fuels will make a 50% decline in production (if even THAT occurs) almost irrelevant.

  • Bad Fiscal Policy Rolls Back Clock on Civil Rights [View article]
    Ya mean ya are waiting for the day when black people, I wonder if it's our dysfunctional families? Ya wonder if it's because we idolize death row inmates with our fashions? Ya wonder if it's because we think Ebonics is the next world language? Ya wonder if it's because we think 5th grade reading level at high school graduation is an accomplishment?

    Dream on DOOD!

  • AT&T's (T +1.2%) introduction of usage-based pricing for its smartphones brings some much-needed common sense to the wireless industry. The new plan also will provide “long-term revenue growth” for AT&T and help the company "limit, or at least get compensated for, abusive usage” from the heaviest users.  [View news story]
    WOW! charging hogs more means they can pass some savings on to light users, which would be another successful marketing ploy. I imagine this must stick in the craw of the net-neutrality nitwits as well. All the more reason to get rid of the FCC and other such regulatory agencies entirely.

  • A U.S. Government Bond Bubble [View article]
    Junk science worthy of Al Gore. No definition of a bubble...and by the way, the FIRST TENET of Dow Theory...older than any slapdash securities analyst on the planet, is

    (1) The averages discount EVERYTHING (except acts of God). Thats even more rigorously efficient than EMH people would dare to consider.

    Bubbles, black swans, paradigm shifts, global warming......death to them all!

  • 10-Year TIPS Yield: The Chart Says It All [View article]
    You could use a much longer chart we used in the pre-tips days, TBills minus inflation; or Tbonds minus inflation....but I always agree with your point. Pick up any intro economics textbook and read about the national debt and you'll see why we are losing sleep over NOTHING.

  • Israel, Regional ETFs in Focus as Middle East Tensions Flare [View article]
    Ridiculous. Selling the Israeli etf because of a bunch of spoiled lily livered journalists and activists would be like selling Ford motors because of the riots in detroit in the 1960s.

  • Not much changed between the flash crash of 1962 and that of 2010.  [View news story]
    WOW...someone at S.A. with knowledge of markets that goes back more than 5 years! Yippee.

    The 1962 May market break was studied for years to try and improve specialist performance. An avalanche of stop loss orders is always a market nightmare; and perhaps the correct answer IS stop limit, not stop loss, orders.

    That being said, May 1962 was a real hayday for technical analysis, Magees' book was in every brokerage office, and 1962 saw a head and shoulders top in the Dow Jones Average.

  • Influential oil industry banker Matt Simmons says current efforts to seal the riser are just a distraction, and the only real solution is to nuke the seabed.  [View news story]
    I have a better time CNN and PMSNBC have some moron from the treehugging envirowhackos, ask them if this blowout means they will drive fewer miles, turn off their air conditioning, or use less electricity. Lets see a special on how the Goricle household is cutting energy demand so we don't NEED to drill in such sensitive areas.

  • Despite all the criticism, Steven Pearlstein says BP (BP) has done a lot of things right. "It is possible that BP's Deepwater disaster will one day replace Johnson and Johnson's (JNJ) Tylenol scare as the classic business school case study on crisis management."  [View news story]
    I'll take BP over the Anointed One ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.

  • Greece is fully committed to implementing the EU-IMF rescue program and is not seeking to renegotiate pension reform or other issues, an IMF spokesperson says.  [View news story]
    As for me, I distrust the Greeks even when they bear full commitments.
