  • Wall Street Breakfast: Markets Prepare For Q2 GDP Report [View article]
    The Ex-Im bank should close permanently!

    It's another example of a completely unnecessary government agency. There are lots of other banks that can and will provide financing and Boeing is just bluffing.

    The bank is used for political favors!

    I am a little pessimistic about the GDP numbers today.

    Housing began to soften in June so that might keep the numbers down.

    "UPS fires warning shot across the bow of the stock market and the fed"

    I was trying to think when the last time I heard numerous companies announcing that they would be hiring..... hmmm!

    You can't call it a "market" when the government owns and controls all the stocks!

    It's a Disney fantasy that allows China to look respectable to the rest of the world.

    Any weapon that is as complex and expensive as the F-35 is problematic.

    Whether it's an M-16 that jams in the mud or a tank that looses it's tracks or a plane that is always broken or in need of maintenance, we need weapons that are dependable and efficient and function when you need them to.

    Bob,

    The problem with the third way that you mention is that it usually results in the large scale killing of the masses. The wealthy retain their wealth but labor becomes in demand again and then wages rise.

    "killed an estimated 584K in 2013"

    That is a sobering figure! The press rants about Ebola or MERS or bird flu that kill a few hundred people a year.

    Let's hope the vaccine is safe and effective and gets released ASAP!

    Thanks Obamacare for making massive profits for the insurance companies while eliminating the consumers options and reduced competition which has raised health care costs!

    I hope they enjoy their windfall profits while they last because "Single Payer", government cost control is coming!

    The big winner in the minimum wage increase scam is the government.

    More tax revenue! Unless businesses automate, which they will.

    BlueOakie,
    I also heard that San Francisco is having trouble with their new minimum wage because workers aren't qualifying for the government hand outs so the workers are choosing to work less hours.

    BlueOkie,
    I think NYC, San Francisco and Chicago, should all raise their minimum wage to $50 per hour, and then everyone else would also get a 400% raise.

    It's only fair!

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Corporate Earnings Weigh On Investor Sentiment [View article]
    Remember this is the same group that raided a guitar company for "illegal wood".

    I heard they will be looking into the age of the person and if the gun was legally purchased, but they will probably try to come up with some claim of firing a firearm from a moving vehicle or claim it was an act of terrorism.

    Vegas is an amazing place for adult entertainment. If you have never been I would highly recommend going. The last couple of times that I went it was just for the entertainment and food, which was great!

    But there is a great casino an hour and half from my house so the uniqueness of Vegas has clearly been lost and central Florida has restaurants and entertainment that are as good or better than anything in Vegas.
