  • Debt ceiling debate reportedly over [View news story]
    Right and when a party is elected to do healthcare they shouldn't be demonized for doing what they said they were going to do either. But when a party says they are going to take out the USA they do deserve to be demonized by every good and true patriot.

  • President still at odds with House Republicans as Senate negotiates [View news story]
    Who was the guy who wrote the famous book that the fascists in America will come draped in the flag? Then I see Tea party dressed in patriotic costumes destroying ordinary Americans faith in congress. That is how the Nazi party started, parading around in traditional German clothes, telling people that the government should not pay their WWI reparations... Scary times.

  • Now Is The Time To Be Fearful [View article]
    So not sure what this author is saying. He says it is time to be fearful yet uses Buffet's quote which means we should buy. But... he says not to buy. Then why is he using Buffet's quote? Does he not know what it means? Or is he really saying to sell into fear? Lots of charts does not seem to mask his confusion.

    How come there was no the article that told us that hedge funds and real money were buying into the market late last year. Because there was none. But now supposedly we know they are selling. What a con job.

  • Marc Faber predicts a 1987-style market crash [View news story]
    Want to impress me? Predict all time market highs when we are in the depths of recession and Euro crisis. That would have been impressive and right. But no one did. These guys are clowns. In other words, do what no one is predicting and you will have more success.

  • An "industrial dance … choreographed by Goldman"" and others has cost consumers $5B or more over three years by driving up the premium on aluminum in the spot market, The NY Times says. Since Goldman bought Metro International Trade Services in 2010, warehouse customers' wait for deliveries has gone from six weeks to 16 months. The strategy allegedly involves paying incentives to encourage banks, hedge funds, and traders to renew aluminum leases and then shifting that metal from one warehouse to another in order to comply with regulations which require 3K tons to be shipped each day. Banks may also derive a trading edge from the "valuable market information" they collect by controlling warehouses, the Times notes. (previous[View news story]
