  • Wall Street Breakfast: Yellen, Draghi Speeches Take Center Stage [View article]
    Here's my view of WWII. After WWI, we smothered Germany and demanded so much, we allowed the Corporal to rise to power. Germans carried their cash in a wheel barrel to buy a loaf of bread.
    Japan is a island and they knew if we entered the war they've no way of getting oil from us. So they attacked and could have taken us over if they had kept coming. They knew of the 2nd Amendment and the armed citizens.
    Hitler decided to attack the US. He put U-Boats off our east coast and planned raids which failed. He also negotiated with Mexico and told them they could have their land (Texas) back if they joined him. Luckily that failed as well.
    Today you don't need to fight, if you are okay with converting to Islam and living under Sharia law. There are bad people in this world who want to kill us for something as simple as letting our women go to school.

    Husker,
    I agree! Watching the first 5 minutes of ABC equal weather report! It is raining or snowing somewhere in the US. It shows poor programing and lack of ability to present the news. Oh wait ABC is owned by Disney.
    As far as left leaning. Look at exposure Hillary gets versus any of the Republicans.

  • Merrill Lynch raises energy outlook, names four Big Oil stocks to buy [View news story]
    Wouldn't it be nice if there was a place to track predictions on stocks? Unless Exxon goes out of business, I'm sure its stock will go to $1,000 excluding splits. Notice I didn't say when.

    slack,
    Thanks. A good report and there are many headwinds for CAT. I think it is a $100 stock potential. I bought in at $83 and have been positive on the returns.

    The above gives a extended lists of the military role. Many don't make the news but we are still putting troops in harms way. Freedom isn't Free!

  • What A Rate Hike May Mean For Stocks [View article]
    You know when the FED is going to raise rates, when they don't know. I've been hearing for some time that rates are going up. I don't see it until Obama leaves office.

    Although I haven't heard it yet, I waiting for a weather report. The one released by the White House that says all the wet weather, tornadoes, fires, mudslides, earthquakes are a result of global warming. It is a scientific fact and if you don't believe it you are stupid!

    CAT gave a positive outlook as well for the US. Housing is rebounding and the big CAT and DEERE will be needed. Holding them down - strong dollar.

    Income,
    Losers - first we need to define loser! Second why are they losers. Third and this is the hard point, do they deserve and are they willing to accept our help? You cannot help people unless they want to help themselves.
    The answer isn't taking money from other people and giving it to the losers. Then there's that question is why do I have to do anything with the losers? Your presumption is it is my responsibility to take care of them. Whether they want it or not.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: PMI Data Weighs On Global Markets [View article]
    Rates won't rise until the GDP does. Who'll borrow money at 5% if they can only make 4% return? Who'll save funds at .25% when inflation is .5%? It is crazy. We need some regulations thrown out.

    This is big brother!!! The 5,000 tests will have gps in some of the vehicles.
    If there was a equitable distribution back to the people who will fix the roads based on usage of each road fine. The federal gov't program is not a fair system either. Increase car registration costs and gas tax is the way to pay for much of it. Then increase property taxes. This is going to be a administrative nightmare and another way to grow gov't.

    We lose Billions because of unlawful drugs. It is a major problem except for our DOJ who doesn't want to enforce our drug laws. It kills by taking over a individual. There is nothing good about it.

    I agree with drug testing for anyone getting a gov't subsidy. I think the farmers need to make it own their own. Food stamps is a huge benefit to farmers.

    Your point on healthcare suggests that healthcare is free. I'm all for free healthcare except there is no such thing. It is like a little kid asking for a dollar without realizing where it comes from - hard work. You want everyone to become dependents of the gov't. To do that, you must give up so much freedom that it kills the human spirit.

    As you say there is a big problem in California. There are movie stars who make millions and yet find poverty just around the corner - do nothing. The liberals are more concerned about saving a tree or bird or a fish, than saving people. Taxes are high and getting higher. California could be the land of plenty for all and it should be. It would be very interesting to see the income tax distribution in California.
