  • Can You Profit From Prisons?  [View article]
    What do you mean it's the crimes themselves? I think it is the punishment that does not fit the non violent crimes that is the problem. And for-profit places, not just prisons, but places in Texas that have incarcerated young people strictly for monetary gain.

    Prisons are not so much a cesspool of diseases as one might think. It is purely an unhealthy, unnatural environment. Men and women are not engaging in activities as much as people and Hollywood portrays that lead to HIV etc. Folks may have entered prison with such diseases and get sicker while incarcerated.

    Does that mean you are going to divest or continue to collect dividends?

    Michelle Alexander "Clinton championed the idea of a federal “three strikes” law in his 1994 State of the Union address and, months later, signed a $30 billion crime bill that created dozens of new federal capital crimes, mandated life sentences for some three-time offenders, and authorized more than $16 billion for state prison grants and the expansion of police forces." from The Nation

    From this scathing article about how the Clinton's promoted and increased the prison industrial complex big time--Bill's ink pen promoted policies leading to 3 strikes and long prison terms for drug use (i.e., non violent crimes) which devastated the Black community and Bill signed a bill which created new prisons therefore newer, browner/blacker prisoners.

    I will not invest in the prison industrial complex for any amount of love nor money.

    Prisons over schools...that's where this country has been and continues to head. More money in hiring folks penned up than those who put a pen in the hands for education.

    Really, hands should be DARK! That would further darken the contents of this article. I don't do prisons, alcohol, tobacco or junk foods.

  • Netflix: Don't Be The Last To Sell  [View article]
    More panic articles. I even set up a plan to buy Netflix like I used to buy bonds. I was going to buy a few shares every month for the rest of the year!

    That's what I think of Netflix potential. Cell phones are not going away. And when the kids who grew up with a cell phone in their hands start using streaming services then we will see exponential growth.

    You sell--I'll buy.

    Just my thinking as I drove to work today. I saw this coming when gas and oil started tanking. I said to myself, never should the market be at 18K when gas is 1.99 a gallon!

  • Why I Sold My Facebook  [View article]
    Yes, because before FB professors would require students to have blogs or to sign up for their blog to keep up with assignments. But FB is the way to go. In middle school it's the opposite, teachers are warned about having students as part of their FB it is purely social. I don't have any co workers on my FB and don't accept invites from students.

    I await my facebook settlement check. I am back in FB and if things get shaky I can sell it for Microsoft or Netflix. But I am so glad I sold that TWITTER stock. That's the one you should have warned folks about.

  • Sell Everything: Cut Your Income Off To Spite Your Retirement  [View article]
    Timely article. Two things: If you bought low you should not be underwater. For example I got apple at 94 ps and sold a few to buy Netflix. If you are holding onto your stocks for retirement why would you sell short or get only what you paid for them?

    I was wrong about one pick: Twitter, but I sold it before it tanked. Tanks twitter.
