  • 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.

  • Paul Ryan: Ideas for reducing poverty [View news story]
    Reading most of the comments above one can easily see how conservatives are becoming marginalized to insignificance in American politics due to their misguided and ignorant leadership and understanding of history. It reads like, 'let them starve' 'let them die' 'let business walk all over them'. No wonder we have an Obama today instead of a Reagan or an Eisenhower.

    The GOP needs a platform which supports and improves the living standards of the poor and disappearing middle class. When the poor make more money, and corporate billionaires a little less, then people move to the right. We have seen this during the greatest periods of Republicanism

    You cannot have an economy without some form of regulation and planning because without these the majority of people become exploited by big business. Why do you think we have such big unions nowadays? Did the unions come first just to destroy big business? No, business "left to its animal spirits" nearly killed the poor and they fought back with unions. Unions are a remnant of what happens when you have no government regulatory control at all, as opposed to too much. Raise the living standards of the poor and middle class and the unions will lose power.

  • House Republicans won't bring their "Plan B" tax-cut proposal to a vote tonight, as Speaker John Boehner says he doesn't have the votes; the House will recess until after Christmas. DJIA futures slip 0.2%. Boehner: "Now it is up to the president to work with Senator Reid on legislation to avert the fiscal cliff." Updated: S&P 500 e-Mini futures dive, limit down. [View news story]
    I used to admire the GOP but their inability to cut a deal is really sad and impotent. GOP always used to be the party of businessmen who know something about making deals but now is just consumed by religious and tea party fanatics who know nothing about doing business. Lost my vote and I hope they lose the House next time around too.

  • Perspectives On Friday's Sell Off [View article]
    I think you might be right on it being choreographed because now I think back when Goldman warned a few days before that the markets were overbought and the market tanked and bounced back that that was a warning they or someone they knew were about to pull the rug.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Well when the Republicans can prove that they can handle a 15 minute speech then maybe they deserve to run the country. If that Rubio disaster is all they could muster then they and all their angry supporters will have to wait... a long time it seems. First step, get someone who has a message and can communicate. Its not that hard, except for the once great GOP, who can't even do a dignified response

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    AIG has the nerve to pay millions for television commercials thanking Americans for giving them millions? I would think Americans would be outraged at this but I guess they are becoming a people who are used to having elitists rub mud in their faces while the middle class disappears.

  • Not Enough Cash For Sunshine Heart [View article]
    This author loses all credibility because he has no clue about the huge differences between SSH valve and the others. Heartware and Thor are internal devices while SSH offers a device planted externally to the heart. SSH device will render Thor and Heartwares obsolete. External devices are much less invasive and in huge demand. There is no other competitor with a device even remotely similar to SSH. This is why SSH will be bought long before market. Plus the device is already approved and on the market in Europe. Please do some research before writing this garbage. Thanks.

  • The PBOC cuts bank reserve ratio requirements by 50 basis points to 20.5%, effective February 24, reports the WSJ. It's the second easing of policy in less than 90 days.  [View news story]
    Except this time its the herd that is all predicting a meltdown. A year from now there will be comments like this except saying: He or she was the only one saying to buy in Feb 2012. He or she was spot on.

  • Ukraine continues offensive against rebels [View news story]
    There is nothing sacred about national boundaries, especially in Europe. Have a vote of self-determination, redraw the lines and end this peacefully. Ukraine trying to keep these areas reminds me historically of Mexico trying to keep Texas within its control in the 19th century. Not going to happen.

  • Three Sunday Reads [View news story]
    In 1984 The GOP was a national unifier who made all Americans proud to be Americans again at the expense of the Dems who pandered only to the lowest of the low.

    By 2012 the GOP has become a national divider who pander only to the highest of the high, the bigoted, the uneducated, and religious extremists while the Dems have a message that most Americans can unify behind.

    Easy to see what happened here. Unify the country and you win. Pander to extremists and the rich and you lose.
