  • Financial Reform Bill Misses the Target [View article]
    This administration is so smart that after bailing out the banks they are kicking them in the teeth so the stock prices go down and we can bail them out again.

  • Why Striking the 'Buffett Rule' From the Financial Reform Bill Could be Deflationary [View article]
    The government made a deal on social security and changed it. 65 is no longer a retirement age.

  • Squatters: 4.4 Million and Counting [View article]
    Bankruptcy is the squatters haven. This should be illegal instead of legal. Why should I have to indirectly pay for your screw ups?

  • Financial Reform Bill Misses the Target [View article]
    I suggest ALL SKIN. The main management figures put up ALL their salaries and perks, including homes, airplanes and vehicles and bank accounts.
    The problem of greed is finished.
    You can write all the laws you want and they will not cover another debacle. The most frequently heard words in congress are, "It's not perfect". That should tell you something!!

  • Too Big to Fail: Time for a Controlled Demolition [View article]
    Dave Lewis...
    You must of read my comments from months ago. lol lol That is the ONLY way to control the banks and financial institutions. If they risk their company and lose then they lose. Houses, airplanes, automobiles, pensions, etc. That will kill the greed factor.
    Don't need any laws that were and will be ignored in the future by incompetent bureaucracy. Obama has to put his show down and incorporate what you and I know will work.

  • 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.
