    >SD-

    Agree the income is gone but so are some of the ridiculously high medical charges that low income group had to pay because they didn't have insurance. Hospitals are screaming because they can't gouge the indigent (read as taxpayers) like before.

    I have always felt that the medical system in this country was pathetic- It may still be but maybe we won't rank 23rd in quality and outcomes right behind a bunch of third world countries any more. Having spent over 40 years in the industry of health care economics I say there are many sides to this story. I'm not taking any position yet but I am attempting to arrive at a conclusion as to where we stand not only economically but as a world leader as well by turning over the rocks and avoiding the political rhetoric.

    The second graph about debt service payments as a % of Disp. Inc. really threw me before your comment clarified it for me- The engineered drop in interest rates!

    Thanks-

    USA household debt as a percentage of annual disposable personal income was 127% at the end of 2007, versus 77% in 1990.

    The link attached is for a MarketWatch article dealing with the 'Heartbleed' security hole affecting all internet commerce. This may be totally redundant for this group but I feel there may be some for whom it is news-

    Re: Hyperinflation

    I remember when Geithner went hat-in-hand to Merkel attempting to get the EU to debase their currency about two years ago. Merkel just looked at him and said "You want what?"

    Hey, Doc-
    I'm on my iPad right now and went to read the link you posted and got the message-

    "The content holder hasn't given permission for this article to be read on a mobile device. Copy the link and read the article on a P.C. another time."

    A new first for me!

    As far as the marihoochie goes think of all the tax dollars on the stuff especially if they consider it in the same category as alcohol!

    What deficit?

    You're right on the productivity gains, although, maybe we would all benefit if our legislators loosened up a bit.

    Re: CUs

    A lot of CUs don't do commercial stuff like wires and ETFs. I found a couple that do but maybe more heading that way. Some states protect the "banks" read that as lobbying factions so that CUs are restricted in some ways. Insurance is a political football as well as is business loans w/O collateral.

    Don't worry, crony pals are always under the politician's protection wing somehow, maybe even the wing of the Mafia- Oh oh, maybe that's the same thing!

    >HTL-

    Could be that article might have moved the (CPST) needle. I'm a fan of (PCAR) to begin with- glad they're buying Capstone generators.

    (PCAR) just a little too expensive yet. Not all that great for trading but a good long term investment IMHO.
