    I suppose now we will get another totally misleading, disingenuous, anti gun POS from the WSJ on gun crime.

  • Verizon slumps on Citi downgrade; AT&T also off [View news story]
    Seriously? "Rollins: "We believe the wireless industry is experiencing a great disconnect between the growth in data traffic and the growth in revenue ... We continue to fear that recent promotions create risk that the wireless industry at large may not be able to capture substantial incremental revenue from the rise in data consumption over time."
    We believe . . . We continue to fear . . . may not be able . . . consumption over time.
    Does anybody really listen to this crap???? And some of you folks are actually trading your money based on this drivel???? Wow.

  • What Happens When Solar Costs Go Below Fossil Fuels? [View article]
    @Andy. That's the way it was here originally in SO CA. Then they decided to just give you a credit on your account if your net usage was less than zero. At some point that will become a problem as well as their total net income approaches zero. I recall a few years ago during the last water shortage in LA - usage went down but then they had to raise the rates for operating expense, etc. as water bill usage income was way down. Electrics will have to do the same thing - obviously. They ain't Santa Claus. Only way you escape is get off the grid totally. Some places you cannot collect rainfall runoff. I'm sure they will figure out a sunshine tax. It's not just the companies that get affected - most are gov't regulated and they are not going to take any loss in revenue lightly (no pun intended). So good luck but get ready for an adjustment to your check.

    I think now you get a credit on your account - they don't pay you anything.

  • Why I Won't Be Buying Alibaba Anytime Soon [View article]
    Great article - your research is unbelievable. I do not trust China since 1950. Jack ma's reputation seems to leave a little bit to be desired. Were I him I would be treading lightly - sticking your head up too high in China tends to scare people that are a little higher. Sometimes doesn't take much to become an enemy of the people and end up in front of a firing squad. We have former business people here in prison now and previously that would have been executed for less in China. Might think about investing in blindfolds and posts.
    Thanks again for your stellar work,
    Bill
