  • Polypore: The Next Exxon, Texaco or Mobil? [View article]
    I would like Polypore alot more if it was profitable. Considering their negative profit margins, the more they sell, the more they lose. Makes me a bit less excited.

  • Who Owns the U.S. National Debt [View article]

    To put it another way, borrow 14 trillion from your left pocket and put it in your right. Does that worry you?

  • As S&P 500 Breaks to New Highs, Short Sellers Dropping Like Flies [View article]
    And as the economy continues with its 17 month recovery, and over a year of private sector employment growth, Cassandras are once again vanishing into the mist with their fellow Famine Forecasters, Peak Oilers, Global Warmingists, Japan Inc'ers. End of History'ers, Paradigm Shifters, and best of all, Double Dippers!

  • Ian Gordon: Bundle Up for Bitter Kondratieff Winter [View article]
    The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Since luddites never got their nuclear winter, they now want their Kondratieff Winter. Will it arrive as quickly as FAMINE 1975! ? Famine 1983! ? Famine...oh, forget it. What about the end of history? What about the paradigm shift? What about global warmingism? What about Japan inc? Any other 'end of Amerika' scenarios you can spin?

  • Why $4 Gas Will Cause Less Pain This Time [View article]
    The cost of Oil/fuel as a % of GDP has been falling for decades, a legacy of sustained (and continuing) efforts at conservation. I've already budgeted for $4 gas in 2011; so if/when it comes it means nothing to me.

  • Why Apollo Group Will Benefit From a Republican House [View article]
    What do these schools think their education is worth? Look at what they pay their professors. A class of 30 students, paying $1500 each for the course, is taught by a professor earning....

    drum roll please........NINE HUNDRED DOLLARS!

    These are not schools, they are student loan processing facilities.

  • Portugal Next to Fall, EU Leaders Still Oblivious: Time to Short the Euro [View article]
    Destruction of the Euro zone should be a manifest US Foreign, Economic, and Military policy. "Europe" for decades has been a politcally, economically, militarily and morally bankrupt region unable to stand up to Natural Gas bullying by the russians, or to Islamic bullying over everything from cartoons to immigration. Out of the ashes of the Euro zone could come a solid alignment between Britain, Germany and the US.

  • Scaling Rosenberg's Six Walls of Worry [View article]
    Good point Pundit! Firing those Air Traffic Controllers sure made our skies less safe, didn't it? Busting public employee unions and freezing wages and benefits until the cumulative effect catches up with price inflation over the past 30 years, is another step forward.

  • Employment Situation Fails to Improve [View article]
    At least Calafia is willing to admit the statistics paint this picture or that one. Compare that to Tyler Durden, who has been a cheerleader for a double dip since before the first one started.

    What we need is an increase in private sector jobs and a decrease in State and Federal employees. We seem to be getting both, grudgingly.

  • Claims Data Point to Stronger Labor Market [View article]
    And we don't get any articles from the double dippers about the UPWARD revision in the November and October figures, either.

    Face it, we have a Jimmy Carter slow growth, overregulated, Crony Capitalist economy, and we get Jimmy Carter performance as a result. As Bushites say, "MISS ME YET?"

  • Unemployment Claims Are Not What They Appear [View article]
    All of the the 'tards who were whining about job figures from previous months being revised DOWNWARD during the Euro-induced slowdown this summer seem so QUIET about the UPWARD REVISIONS in jobs for November and October.

    Face it: We have slow growth in the face of a libtard president hell bent on being the next Jimmy Carter.
