    Brad---- stop by TJX and look around. You might find a shirt or two for $9.99. Dillard's is usually too expensive for my paltry allowance.

  • Mortgage REIT Meltdown, I Told You So  [View article]
    Brad-- Just wanted to thank you for a very good article. Not enough folks that write for SA tell it like "it is". Who gives a hoot what your title was/is. You did tell us so and by the way--- I got out of my MR's months ago and saved thousands and I did it after reading one of your articles. Your point about not belonging in a retirement acct. is right on or at least for me it was. Let the folks that are jumping on you for being right go their merry way. There are only 4 authors on SA that I follow closely and I have done pretty darn well in listening intensely and following suit. You happen to be one of those. Thanks

    Take your guns? I feel certain that homeland security would not think about it. After all, a billion rounds of ammunition, thousands upon thousands of ar weapons ,and train loads of armored personnel carriers are probably going to be used to search somebody at the airport.. No. Nobody will come for your guns.

  • Plan C. Acknowledging there is no time to craft a "grand bargain" before year end, the President urges Congress to pass a stopgap measure, saying he'll immediately sign a bill allowing unemployment benefits to continue and preventing tax hikes on those with income under $250K/year.  [View news story]
    I find it sort of amusing how folks without a point say stupid things like Bush's borrowing and spending policies when the last four years account for one third of our total national debt. Read my lips---5 trillion dollars--- and still no jobs and on the verge of who knows what (hopefully only a cliff). Why is it that we as Americans can not come together anymore? Why won't the Rs admit that new taxes are needed? Why won't the Ds agree that major spending cuts are needed? When everyone that can add and subtract knows this for an absolute fact.

    This is not a political statement. It is absolutely amazing to me that the folks lambasting the Rs for not taking up a bill that was rejected across the board before anyone had seen it, have not even attempted to address the Nations real Issue of spending. We spend $ every second of the day we don't have. In fact we spend one trillion dollars every year that we don't have and the party in power does not put forth ANY proposal for reduced spending. Take all the $ away from the people making over one million and it will not make a dent in the deficit.. From what I read, the Ds will not consider any reduction to true entitlements and I am not talking about programs that people have contributed to all their lives. The solution should be pretty simple. The Rs agree to raise 5 trillion in new revenue over 10 years and the Ds agree to reduce spending by 5 trillion over 10 years. Boom bang bam mission accomplished. New outlook on life in America. This solution would be easy for folks whose first priority was this Country and not themselves or their "party.

  • On The Road To The Endgame: The Farcical Cliff  [View article]
    The politicians are masters at the shell game. Most people as above are sucked into the smoke screen of "2% rick folks", etc. If you took all of the $ of the top 2% it would not fix our problem, but when the Pres. and the pols get the American people to take their eye off the ball, then we can't focus on the real problem. It is just like North Korea shooting off a new rocket every time the leaders hear their people start complaining about being hungry.

  • Black Friday by the numbers: Wal-Mart (WMT) says over 22M customers have been served since the retailer opened its stores last night in a somewhat controversial decision to cut short the Thanksgiving holiday for employees. The company notes it's already knocked out 10M register transactions and hit an astounding pace of 5K items per seconds at peak time. The bigger question: Did Wal-Mart pull sales forward or take market share from rivals with its decision to launch Black Friday shopping earlier?  [View news story]
    I am not a hugh WM fan; however this union nonsense has driven me to shop there for some items just as a show of support for companies who hire people and pay taxes.
