  • The Keynesian Depression [View article]
    Out of respect to MANY MANY Seeking Alpha writers, I daresay almost ALL of them know more than the Fed, or at least, THIS fed. Interest rates at zero...what a wonderful way to reward the local, state, and federal governments, and the profligate borrowers, who got us into this mess to begin with.

    And simultaneously to impoverish the elderly, the savers, the ones who lived for decades within their means.

  • Why the Eurozone Is Doomed [View article]
    Europe is a morally, fiscally, politically and economically bankrupt region, living off free US defense from the west and low cost gas from Russia in the east, and pitifully unwilling to defend itself against a muslim onslaught.

  • The Great Awakening: Boomers, Your Crisis Has Arrived (Part 3 of 3) [View article]
    Sociological CRAP masquerading as research. Of the ten zillion books published every year forecasting the future, you pick one which just happens to be correct, and congratulate the authors on their 'foresight.'

    A freshman student of statistics could crush this garbage.

  • 'Buying Dividend Stocks For Income' Arguments Don't Make Sense [View article]
    (1) If they are highly correlated with the market, they DO recover when the market recovers, which is one of your concerns.

    (2) Screening for coverage and liquidity ratios removes many of your other concerns.

    Your article is good in that it reminds us that dividend stocks are often stodgy, conservative investments not for the cocktail party crowd.

  • 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!

  • There's No Reason Why Stocks Are Down Today [View article]
    I look at the chart and see that over ten years of R.I.N.O. and liberal democrat redistributionist and regulatory fervor have destroyed the entrepreneurial spirit in the US; and that we need a reaganesque leader and policy, pronto. That is NOT evident from yesterdays Fed meddling.

    The road to the long term is paved with short term decisions.

  • The Economy Is Sliding Into a Stagflationary Spiral [View article]
    Or in so many words, Obama is Jimmy Carter II and the nation needs a new Volcker and a new Reagan.

  • Ten Reasons for an Imminent Stock Market Crash [View article]
    Short covering, low volume, bankrupt companies?

    Hmmm why is the market breadth so good? Look at a/d line. The Volume is low, but only relative to the ridiculous crash levels of last fall. And alot of the dow companies....not all of which were bankrupt, last I looked....have participated fully in this rally.

    If you can't get THOSE facts straight, who cares about the rest of your spiel?

  • Alice in EVland, Part II: The Hall of Mirrors [View article]
    You also have to remember that this EPA and their fellow Federal toadies at DOE are the ones who shoved ethanol and synfuels down our throats. We gave up on the fomer and even the Goricle admits the latter is a farce.

    Taking corn out of the mouths of babes and putting it into our gas tanks. Only in Envirowhackoland.

    So overwhelming are the economics of EVs they need a federal subsidy.of $7500...half a years unemployment check for a minimum wage worker...so that a few greenies in Loma Linda can salve their fossil fuel guilt.

    While net-energy analysis is really tough to balance out, Mr. Peterson, you've sure made a good start.

    The market crashed on rumors that O'Bama was a compromise candidate for Prime Minister in the UK's hung Parliamentary Election.

  • The Impending Collapse of the Gold Bubble Part 2 [View article]
    If the Fed would raise short term rates to 1% (2% would be even better) then commodity prices would collapse, the dollar would strengthen, savers would benefit, and the economy would boom as people take money out of fear assets and put them to work for profit generating businesses.

  • A Sobering Perspective on China's High Speed Rail [View article]
    Trains work only in postage stamp sized countries where people live like gerbils in dense population centers and pay $8.00 equivalent per gallon of gasoline. Elsewhere they are a waste of money.

  • Eurozone Crisis: The Implications for the U.S. [View article]
    You guys never learn. We are far beyond the point of diminishing returns from gov't profligacy. Government spending is now DEADWEIGHT on the economy: the jobs/wealth it 'creates' are fewer than the jobs /wealth it destroys. Look at the Anointed One: Taking $7000 from a working stiff so that some envirowhacko can buy an overpriced Leaf for $35000.
