  • Why Not Just Limit the Size of Banks? [View article]
    You are witnessing a dog and pony show regarding legislation against the banks. Congress will leave loop holes in any legislation passed. Congress is funded by the bank lobbyist.
    Obama will give speech after speech but the results will be a waste of taxpayer money.
    Get use to it!!

  • Goldman Sachs: The Long and Short of Opaque [View article]
    What a joke!!! Derivatives shut down and banks made smaller. I guess that will end greed.
    Obama needs to remove his head from where the sun don't shine and tie the losses to the perks and salaries of the CFO, CEO and the board of directors that all say, Duhhh. I did not know that was going on.
    If their salaries and fringe benefits are in jeopardy than PROBLEM SOLVED. We all know it is about greed.
    So what if the banks fail. The top people walk away with millions. So what if derivatives cause an economic collapse. The abusers walk away with millions.
    I have not seen anyone lose their jobs or money regained because of the lack of competence. If they are dismissed they go to another job or are given millions to retire on. You have to claw back what they are suppose to receive. That will resolve the out of contact gambling and under hand maneuvers.

  • Did a Clever SEC Bait Goldman Sachs Into Compounding Its Legal Problems? [View article]
    Watched Barney Frank say that the banks would have to hold 5% of the mortgages and could not sell them. Let's see if I have this right?
    If I have 1 billion in mortgages and keep 5% or 50 million dollars worth of them, then I can gain $950 million in selling them and lose only 50 million if everything goes south. Not bad!! Where do I sign up.

  • 6 Dow Dividend Stocks That Are Thriving in 2010 [View article]
    T has been and still is a loser in my portfolio. After I phone and all. It is like holding a bank certificate of deposit. No movement but down for years. Sure the dividend is good but when you hold it for years and inflation is up 2% minimum a year & you hold the stock for 5 years you actually lose.10% of your investment capital.

  • Four Safest Dividends in the S&P [View article]
    All the accounts I have control over (13) have MO. It has never lost me money in dividends and yield. (8 yrs.) It is the only stock that I TOTALLY vote for as management asks in the proxy s. It raises dividend every year.

  • It's Good to Be a U.S. Banker (At Least for Now) [View article]
    That is why I NEVER let my clients invest in mutual funds.
    I have been saying that for years. The fund managers could care less about the client's positions. A simple vote, with their millions of shares, could change destiny!

  • Airline Employee Pay Raise Demands: Not Just Pie in the Sky [View article]
    Me: 34 yrs. with TWA. Inspector & mechanic.
    If I had a choice I would prefer NO UNION!! Nothing but a dues collection agency. Stuck it to the troops many a time. Slept in the same bed as the company.
    Go on strike..Lose pay. Get chump change for walking the picket line. Your union reps lose nothing. Zero. Their pay keeps flowing as well as their benefits. They will be on the picket lines with you for 1/2 hr or until the camera news team leaves.

  • S&P Agrees With Moody’s That Dodd Financial Reform Bill Threatens Big Bank Ratings [View article]
    I forecasted this four months ago. We bail the banks out of a mess with tax payers money and now when they hopefully have bottomed
    out but still are not totally solvent we hit them with new regulations that make them give back more money they don't have in order the appease the messiah.
    Give them a year to get squared away before you cut them off at the knees.
