  • Uranium: What Happened And What To Expect [View article]
    Hmm, absolutely no mention of wind, solar and battery storage as potential disruptive threats to nukes.

    A bit narrow minded, no?

  • McDonald's: Franchisees Feeling 'Doomed' [View article]
    "Depending on who you ask, we're either the McDonald's realists, or we're the McDonald's "doomsayers". We prefer the second term, it has a nice ring to it."

    Yes, indeed it does. According to Merriam-Webster:

    Full Definition of DOOMSAYER: One given to forebodings and predictions of impending calamity.

    Synonyms: Cassandra, Chicken Little, doomsdayer, doomster

    That sounds about right.

  • Arch Coal - Bond Exchange Is A Win-Win [View article]
    "I have come to the conclusion will leave the company's shareholders in much better position to benefit from a recovery in the coal market."

    Highly, highly doubtful. Coal is done, the corpse just doesn't know to stop breathing yet.

  • Exelon's Dividend Disappointing, But Valuation Tempting [View article]
    Um...Exelon is one of the lowest emission utilities out there due to its reliance on nuclear. What has the EPA done to nukes?

    Perfectly OK that Bush, Romney, et. al. restricted access to their campaign events though, right?

    You forget that most people are irrational at best, dumb at worst.

  • Supreme Court Decision Reignites Coal Industry [View article]
    IGCC/CSS is a pipe dream. Too expensive, still not proven as a long term solution, and with wind/solar getting cheaper by the year it will never be cost competitive.

    Battery technology is racing ahead as well, which makes renewables all the more viable.

    Stay away from coal; even China is moving away from it. It's a long term loser.

  • Next spot for GE headquarters - Texas? [View news story]
    Absolutely horrid climate, so humid you can wring the air out. And lots of air pollution too, thanks to lax environmental regulations and scads of refineries. No thanks.

  • Next spot for GE headquarters - Texas? [View news story]
    I am a Yankee, and I hate going to Texas. And there is no way the greatest institutions of higher education are in Texas.

    According to the US News & World Report, Texas barely cracks the top 20 with Rice at #19. Further, only 5 of the top 20 overall are in "red" states, and they are all private universities.

    Texas colleges in the top 100:

    #19. Rice
    #53. University of Texas
    #58. SMU
    #68. Texas A&M
    #71. Baylor
    #76. TCU

    Pretty weak showing for such a large and "prosperous" state. Only 1 in the top 50!

  • GE, Aetna weigh Connecticut pullout [View news story]
    Yes, but many of the proletariat working hard to support those C-level salaries do use mass transit.

    Too bad we don't have slave labor so those C-level guys can make more money.

    blueice, last I checked donating to charities is completely different from paying taxes.

    My search engine works just fine.

    But aren't corporations "citizens" too, at least according to the Roberts court? I do my part for social welfare in my community, why shouldn't citizen-corporations like GE do their part as well? Why are so many people willing to give corporations a pass?

    Don't corporations love America too? Or don't they care when our nation fails?

    The public school system in my town in CT is doing just fine, thank you. And at least they don't teach creationism as a viable scientific alternative to evolution.

    I gladly pay more in taxes so I don't have to live in a socially and educationally regressive red state. Better for my quality of life.

    Another corporate shakedown. Shut up and pay your fair share.

    "...GE has come under fire for its light tax burden. Though it has been earning billions in profits, it paid an average tax rate of just 1.8 percent between 2002 and 2011, according to Citizens for Tax Justice."

    Of course, there are red states out there that would be more than happy to get shafted by corporations, because they essentially do nothing to protect their citizens.

  • Circuit breakers for Treasurys? [View news story]
    "many smart investors called interest rate rising several years back."

    Many have been saying rate hikes are "just around the corner" since 2008. A broken clock is right twice a day.
