  • Geithner says the administration plans to allow tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans to expire, despite calls from a growing number of Democrats to delay any tax increases, and to extend estate taxes at 2009 rates. He also says Elizabeth Warren would be an "enormously effective leader" if chosen to run the new consumer finance agency.  [View news story]
    "We believe it is appropriate to let those tax cuts that go to the most fortunate expire," Mr. Geithner said at a breakfast with reporters, hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

    You know, I really don't have a problem with the expiry of the tax cuts, but seriously....most "fortunate"? Are you kidding me? There is nothing more fortunate about the wealthy people than there is about the poor. Everyone in this country has the same opportunity to become wealthy as everyone else. Just because one group of people understand how money works and use it to their advantage to make more money, while the other group of people take their paychek and spend a new iPhone or an iPad or a new car and not leaving anything behind to invest into money producing assets doesn't mean they are more "fortunate". By far one of the most ridiculous statements I have heard from anyone this year.

  • 4 Dividend Aristocrats With Attractive Yields [View article]
    I've been thinking about adding VZ to my portfolio. A really attractive yield of 7% plus potential upside in the stock if the iPhone indeed does come to Verizon Wireless.

  • Apple iPhone 3GS vs. Palm Pre: Are Consumers Satisfied? [View article]
    I agree with this. How hard is it to find a few more users so you can fairly compare the two. Having 30 something users and comparing them to nearly 200 of another product doesn't prove anything

  • Leveraged ETF Ban Spreading Like the Flu [View article]
    Anyone saying these ETFs are fraud machines are complete morons. FAZ and FAS clearly state the word "Daily" in the title. You have to be an idiot to hold it for months lose money and then say you were victim of fraud. If you don't know how to you use them stay away from them. The reason for these ETFs is clearly disclosed in the title you fraud calling idiots.

  • Four Reasons to Avoid Apple [View article]
    I do not believe the iPod story is gone. Lets not forget the iPod does not come attach with a two year agreement. An iPod is still and will probably remain Apple's most attractive product. Well as long as the iPhone is with the two year commitment, iPod will remain Apple's bread and butter

  • BofA Following Citigroup to $5 or Lower [View article]
    In my opinion, if BAC is to get more money, the bank should be nationalized. If a company decides to purchase another company but doesn't even have sufficient funds to purchase the company, it just proves that the board doesn't know what they are doing. Principals of financial freedom are, if you go out to the store to buy something, make sure you have money for it, and not buy it on credit. All these banks are just worsening day by day, and I don't they have done anything to make it worthy of deserving a bailout.
