  • Wall Street Breakfast: Billions Withdrawn From Pimco Following Gross's Departure [View article]
    Blue, I think our current POTUS, needs to take a page from Harry S. Truman and the "buck stops here" mentality. Too much, I did not know, how could I know, going on... Take responsibility, make the changes that need to be made to right the ship.

    Kevin, thanks for the update, has anyone from either Solazyme or Proterro ever connected the obvious dots?

  • Covanta: Waste Disposal/Utility Hybrid With 4.7% Yield [View article]
    I bought this company after I did 2 separate tours of a local plant with my kids scout group. Management was impressive and explained well how they make money from the trash. Made sense to me at the time, and still does today.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Global Markets Digest Slide In U.S. [View article]
    gggl, good succinct summary of how the Chrysler bailout went, you did forget one part, the pay off of the unions that was part of both bailouts. Nice of us as U.S. taxpayers to do that! Gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling...

    As we always used to say...never out of money when you have more checks... Just saying...

    And what goes down as the most stupid crime ever, people put empty envelopes in the ATM deposit slot, then withdraw the $$$. It is THEIR account, it is not a who done it crime, it is their account and there is a photographic record of the transaction. It happens all the time.

    The explanation above was how it was explained to me at a law enforcement seminar in the past. Do you really have to ask that last question? When you already know the answer? We are still largely magnetic strip, chips are OUR next move.

    RIQ, as I understand the CC cost benefit argument. The CC companies like the current system just fine, until the fraud costs exceed the cost of implementing the "newer chip" technology. The numbers that they are willing to absorb are staggering! One of my cards now has a chip, and believe it or not Walmart is the first place I have seen that has the reader for the chip. No one else...yet.

    I was not GM bashing, just saying in my experience with E46 generation BMW 3 series cars, the GM transmission had weak points. Was it the worst, no, but, not as good as a manual transmission from another manufacturer. My sole point...

    Why, yes, yes they did! Deployed troops and a fleet to help us during revolutionary times. But, as others have mentioned in the past, we repaid with interest during WWII.

    JC, you had me till you hit the GM transmission! BMW put the GM "autotragic" in the E46 generation of the 3 series as well, there were problems a plenty. Some things never change. Not that I would own an "autotragic" but, you get the point.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Treasury Tightens Rules To Fight Tax Inversions [View article]
    JC, they have a reasonably clean balance sheep post bankruptcy, so management is kind of safe for a while, no matter the degree of incompetence? Kind of sad when you think about it? Other companies had to make changes to adapt or perish, ie Ford, GM, just got their lifeline from US!

  • Ford Mustang Turns Over A New Leaf [View article]
    CJD, your assumption is that GM is smart? They seem to have proven otherwise over the years. Not saying Ford has not had its share of bone headed moves, just seems like GM is incapable of learning?

    With you DC, anything to avoid being a "debt slave". Last new car I bought was in 1998, nothing since. Just got a diesel Golf with a bazillion miles on it, but, to me fixing it up is half the fun.

    No new cars? Well, then how will we continue our consumer based society? I think that is sound thinking letting someone else take the hit for depreciation. Combine used cars with the ability to repair cars, and you save real money. Sometimes hobbies truly do pay off for the family budget!

    I did not think there were any "good" rebels left in Syria? I think that is just throwing $$$ down a rat hole? A better plan might be to admit that maybe, just maybe we got it wrong in Syria and armed the wrong people in the first place? Our government admit it was wrong? Not going to happen in our lifetimes. Does not matter which party in power, admissions that they might have got something wrong just don't happen. Justifications as to why they are so right, well there are lots of them.
