  • Can These Fast Food Stocks Afford Raised Hourly Wage?  [View article]
    I would gladly pay an extra buck or two for a burger, if it meant the working poor made enough to support themselves, thus reducing the welfare rolls.

    I look forward to giving up the hassle of car ownership. I make an appointment using my phone to get from point A to B, and the car picks me up. no smelling like gas , no repairs, no wasting hours of my life driving. Cant wait.

  • Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr defend their plan for the city's bankruptcy, reiterating their opposition to a bailout and maintaining that general obligation bondholders will get no new deal. Meanwhile, the muni bond market's self-regulator says the treatment of GO bonds risks changing how investors view what has long been considered the safest class of municipal debt.  [View news story]
    michigan politicians are salivating as they plan to renege on the defined benefit retirement plan im forced to pay into. Theres no option to stop contributing, and no money to buy me out, as the funds to honor the commitment were given given away as tax breaks for the elite. pretty much disgusted with the whole situation, though i have been investing for years and may be able to compensate.

    Unfortunately, most trusted that their politicians were honorable and their pension agreement was worth the paper it was printed on. i find it disgraceful to see the glee some have in pulling the rug out from under the old, just as they are to retire.

    There seems to be endless money for religious wars and corporate handouts, yet no money to honor our commitments to the middle class. disappointed at what my country has become.

  • 3 Reasons Why Verizon And AT&T Shares Should Be Sold Now  [View article]
    I agree with the author that there will be competitive pressures on att/vz.

    its seems absurd to pay $100+ a month for phone/text/data, when all i want is a data plan.

    as a statistical sample of one, i replaced a $120/month vz bill with a 35$ a month data plan and an ipad mini with a skype number. The only people who "call" me are boomers clinging to old technologies.

    I agree with the author that there will be competitive pressures facing att/vz.
    as a statistical sample of one, i ditched the $120+ cell bill for a $30 data plan, and an ipad mini with a skype number. Its absurd to throw money away paying for phone service/text/etc when all i want is a data plan. The only people who "call" me are tech ignorant baby boomers.

  • Microsoft: In The Forefront Of The PC Revolution Once Again  [View article]
    In the near future keyboards and mice will be quaint relics of the past, not unlike the average boomer commenting on seeking alpha. I hope Microsoft is rewarded for having vision and taking chances.
