  • Straight Talk on the BP Oil Spill [View article]
    Obama incompetence is still evident. 12 countries have offered skimmers and equipment to fight the oil. ZERO have been requested by Obama to help in the Gulf.
    Someone elected him.

  • Chatter about an Obama plan for mass mortgage refinancings heats up again, with speculation the President might appoint a "housing advocate" as head of the FHFA, whose current chief has been lukewarm about such an operation. The administration could get their "own man" in there without Senate approval using the same sort of recess appointment just used to install the head of the CFPB.  [View news story]
    I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President of the United States. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there. So I asked her, "If you were President, what would be the first thing you would do?" She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people...

    Her parents proudly beamed. "Wow...what a worthy goal," I told her. "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that. Tell you what - you can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my driveway, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house. How about doing something wonderful like that?"

    She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"

    I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

    Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

  • Big Banks in Trouble: Huge Mortgage Write-Downs Seem Inevitable [View article]
    Have to disagree. Most people are stupid.
    I told my friend 5 months ago he was stupid to keep the condo when he way over $100,000 under and he still has it.
    Americans are not very smart. It is a wonder where we are today.

  • Starbucks jumps into the national debate again [View news story]
    If you are broke, then do not buy it.
    7/11 has free coffee for you. You just have to hang around for about an hour. As the customers throw away their coffee cups you just keep taking them out of the trash and pour the residual into your main cup. When the main cup is filled to the level you want then you use the FREE milk & sugar to lighten it. Then ask the attendant to micro it a shot to heat it up for you. That's the way it is done BIG SPENDER!!!

    fun fun
    You have to be smoking some of the Oregon weed, dude!!!!
    Massive fines are levied on the company, not the individual! It is levied on the stock holders, not the perpetrators of the fraud.
    Ken Lay retired with his stock portfolio in tact. He kept his retirement package, cars, houses, airplanes, etc.
    The stock holders that bought in the $40's lost. The executives made out like the bandits they are. No trials. No jail time. N O T H I N G!!!
    The same cycle can run again with fraud. There is NO accountability unless they have skin in the game. I refer to their personal bank accounts, planes, houses, jewelry, etc.
    It has started again and few will be caught & convicted!!

  • Bank Of America: The Crowd Is Dead Wrong [View article]
    If I was given Buffet's deal I would of sold the house I live in to get the money but the average Joe doesn't get those deals so why keep bringing Buffet into it? He is royalty. We are peasants.
    On that note, why was he moved to the head of the line in a corporation I own? I would never of approved it. It actually makes my shares worth less, in a way, and he gets extraordinary wealth from it.

    What happened to the green shoots they were talking about 10 months ago?
    With a 13 trillion dollar debt and climbing I do not see any green shoots! In the wings are more taxes for medicare and less money for buying products and investments.
