  • BlackRock - Rock Solid Potential [View article]
    It sure is a lot of zeros-----that is the problem. The American economy has problems.

    That is the tone that Barrack Hussein Obama has set for the nation---leading to discontent through out the world.

    Th National debt has grown to $18,000,000,000,000,000 in debt during the two terms of Mr. Obama.

  • BlackRock - Rock Solid Potential [View article]
    Interesting presentation on Black Rock. Thank you.

    This is my personal conclusion; if I had $10,000. in hand I would definitely not buy Black Rock as you indicate you would "if".

    I would invest it in an American stock with both current growth potential price of the stock and dividend potential -----in other words to assure a profit in the price of the stock not for the collective group but for me as an investor.

    When you speak of the $3,000,000,000,000---T... Trillion Dollars! Is that enough zeros?

  • Sirius XM: Why A Rise In Revenue Share And Royalties Will Be Slow [View article]
    This is 'tax' season-----be patient.

    Regarding HS, if he leaves it is his legacy-----he is the one who fueled the move from radio to Satellite. On (earth) there was speech control on radio. When Sirius moved to the sky----how could the speech be controlled?

    Being a stay at home mom, I decided to listen to Stern to see what he was all about. Parents were complaining about Stern's dirty talk.

    One of the most informative shows he had was about breast implants -----unfortunately a lot of women should have heard Stern then as he was able to put the warning signals up for repercussions to a woman's body from the same.

    IMO, The most dangerous aspect now for us in America------is the internet control as a public utility.

    "If it moves, tax it"--------in keeping with tax season. And, if it doesn't move----tax it!

  • The Future Of Seeking Alpha [View article]
    Finally, I felt I was ready to do my first article for SA. There are truly many excellent writers, humorists and analysts on SA. Quite frankly, I feel just a little intimidated by the talent.

    As I was pawing through papers last evening----voila there it was, is! My first Joseph E. Granville book! Being a musician, I understood his approach-----the movements in the market being similar to a musical composition.

    My biggest accomplishment with the $ that he helped me with delving into and understanding the technique he wrote about------was educating my child at a top University in the USA that has led to other opportunities.

    So as SA changes-------I will revisit those Technical ideas of Granville and enjoy the coming changes in SA.

  • Deutsche Bank launches media coverage, expecting profit growth [View news story]
    Your post needs to be repeated.---this leads to information that is misleading.

    "The article says LMCA's holdings are now 90% SIRI, as in SIRI makes up 90% of LMCA's holdings. Not that LMCA holds 90% of SIRI."

  • 'The U.S. Is Broke' [View article]
    Thank you for your comments. I noticed that you state you are now 36.
    That means you were born in 1979 and likely entered the job market 20 years later, about.

    Now consider that most of the Senior Citizens today are post WWII. The Great Depression ended. Post WW!! America was a changed America----people went to Universities for education----engineering of all kinds as well as ... printing, art, Teaching, farming, Mining, construction, Business and yes, even economics-----small towns were the norm they were booming.

    A salary of $5,000 to $10, 000 was considered excellent!

    Yes, they bought insurance , built businesses and eventually championed the First Flight to the Moon. Veterans went to Universities via Veteran's Benefits.

    These Seniors worked hard----- and saved for retirement as well as contributing to Social Security Systemi.

    The $1,000. per month cited in the article is a pittance into what these generations gave America.

    Their contribution to this nation was substantial

    "Yes America is broke------when we begin to see such regulations that put Seniors in such dire straights"


    "That also includes the greatest opportunities for anyone that works hard enough to achieve financial independence if planned and worked hard enough at. Yes, it takes work."

    "At 36, i am more than happy to pay for my LTC insurance. You know why? I CHOOSE to transfer that liability of risk to my insurance carrier. It is NOT an investment, it is a transfer of risk & wealth preservation method. Along with my umbrella policy, AD&D, life and others. I will carry those policies until i am "self insured" I pay less for all those policies per year than some folks car payments for 2 months. Good thing I have never had a car payment, nor ever will. That is my CHOICE.'


    By keeping the property and renting it to a family in need of a place to live----the Senior Citizen, person----man----woman. Can contribute $ to fund their Medicare requirements------- rather than letting a property deteriorate while sitting vacant .

    The system does not pay----if that regulation is eliminated----the rental money can be used for the Senior's care.


    A FINAL NOTE: "THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND STATE GOVERNMENTS ARE NOT CHARITIES.-------Why would it be okay for me or anyone to hold on to assets while "the system" pays the bill? I am more than happy to pay "my share" of taxes into the system with no expectations of a return. I know it is helping someone out there that really needs it. Because of my choices, I can insure for unknowns and expect my assets to be preserved. No "help" from regulation needed."

    Yes anything that was done before can be revisited and eliminated or designed in a new way.

    I feel strongly that that is where we are with America.

    As, I sense other Americans sense and believe.

    The Obama era is a failure------it's time to wipe that slate
    clean .

  • 'The U.S. Is Broke' [View article]
    For a senior citizen who gets just $1,000. a month--------many are essentially 'broke". They worked all their lives to enjoy retirement?

    They paid into Social Security with Medicare and then with Medicaid when the Social Security gets voided due to their being in a Nursing Home that follows Government Mandates.

    Did you know that if a patient goes into a nursing home in Arkansas-----they must have under $2,000. in a bank account to qualify for medical care under Social Security in a Nursing Home and for Medicaid if all of their funds they have are exhausted.

    In Arkansas, you cannot be in a nursing home and have a home that can be rented-----to provide funds for the American Citizen on a $1,000. a month to pay for the expense of the Rehabilitation and Nursing Home-----it is a fact that many older Americans are now either in these situations or will face such.

    However, you can leave the house 'vacant' and be in the nursing home. I ask one director of a nursing home about the property of my brother with Alziemer's Disease
    ----the answer was-----just leave it vacant.

    I was appalled that when people need housing---------that we would have such a mandate-----whether state or Federal-----that would advocate leaving beautiful homes vacant, and leave them to rot.

    Reply by the director--------"oh we have a lot of vacant houses here----there's one right beside of me." I was appalled.

    Yes America is broke------when we begin to see such regulations that put Seniors in such dire straights.

    This is the future for most Seniors now 65 and older.

  • Does Sirius XM Face Any Real Threats? [View instapost]
    There is more to Sirius than music. Dartmouth just announced adding a show on Education.

    What is your opinion on that addition.

    I would like to see the show go live for all non-paying listeners----as a way to bring in new listeners and comments.

    If the show is a success, then the new listeners will likely subscribe and longtime stock holders will benefit, IF ONLY Mr. Malone will open up the dam and let Sirius survive as a company for all long term investors

    Your thoughts appreciated.

    Nice move since you posted your message.

  • A Soldier Returns From War And Faces His Financial Future In 8 Steps [View article]
    Excellent article! There is much that applies to people of any age.

    Yet there is one point not mentioned was how to prevent becoming a fish and have your assets scammed, taken by dishonest care-givers or maybe someone who marries you for your money, house, property and anything within the property.

    This is a tough one-----because as it becomes apparent the fish is already caught on the hook of the dishonest fisher------woman or man.

    He or she very likely has already activated the scam . My brother , a Veteran, diagnosed with Alzhiemer's Disease was the target in Arkansas. First the IRA proceeds were taken ------slowly the fishers targeted the propety.

    As I learned later that the scammer targeting my brother had done the same with other families.

    My brother is very proud of his years in the Army----in the early 1950's he enlisted during 'non war time' and served in the reserves until 1967 while holding his job during the Reserve time. He gets no military pension because of being in the Army during the non-physical-war time.

    Yet he served his country at the White Sands Missile Base-------testing the flights for launching missiles. (Clearing the sage brush in preparations for the launchings they monitored in and out. )

    He is part of the lost generation of seniors now with a tiny monthly pension of $85.00 a month and a partial Social Security stipend per month. The IRA was stolen and will never be recovered.

    That is all I care to write just now. Basically there are good people in this world and their are bad people.

  • Generex successful in increasing insulin concentration in spray product candidate [View news story]
    Was discussing diabetes with a friend who has it. His rescue is a table spoon of sugar, then he's moving again.

    I know that is heresy but if it works for him it's okay.

    Been in GNBT from the beginning. What is so familiar in this article is the same as when it started------delivery of insulin through the mouth, no shots.

    Still holding
