  • Wall Street Breakfast: Global Market Rally Continues [View article]
    Hold on, save the horse!

    There is a blogger that is offering a $10,000 reward for irrefutable evidence that North Korea hacked Sony. So far there are no takers. Not even the US government.

    I saw an interview with a hacker who said it was common to masquerade as a different country. Russia, China or Iran all could have made it look like NK did it.

    I also heard a lawyer explain that Sony had no choice from a liability position. Without the support of the US government, North Korea and everyone else who could claim a loss would sue them into bankruptcy.

    This one of the core responsibilities of the federal government, protect us from foreign threats, and we failed.

    It's not the price but the volatility that is destabilizing.

    The flaming water faucet was proved false by the EPA.

    So it's not the fear of terrorism in the theaters that got the film canceled it's the fear of more leaked emails.

    They could have safely put it on cable or DVD or streamed it.

    Despite the blame being dumped on North Korea (and they probably are involved) there are reports that it was an inside job. Hacked by a disgruntled employee and then sold or distributed to NK.

    The attack on Sony has escalated from embarrassing a few executives to threatening terrorist attacks against anyone who goes to see the movie.

    BLACKMAIL!!! Fox news had an excellent idea. Release the movie immediately on cable. 10X's more people would see it and North Korea couldn't do anything about it.

    R in Q,

    There are always ways to get money out of a country, getting yourself or your family out is often problematic!

    The sad part is that we are still finding out what was in the bill!

    Like they banded legal marijuana in DC despite the voters approving it by a 70% margin.

    They also snuck in an expanded surveillance authority on all Americans.

    And of course they gave race horse owners huge tax breaks.

    It's sort of a "catch 22" effect.

    If you keep the price below a certain amount you can eliminate your competition but as soon as the price rises your competition returns and lowers the price.

    "After years of proclaiming China as one of its top markets, Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) lowered its status in August as the worst of its major countries"

    And now China is FORCING their banks to loan more money.

    Never ever ever believe anything that is reported from China or by someone who is doing business with China. Caveat Emptor!

    TAS,

    And to add insult to injury the CDC reported that the flu virus has mutated and the vaccine that is available has a greatly reduced imunization protection.

    sabresfan21,

    The concerns over drone safety are legitimate but banning licensed and regulated use is short sighted. There are existing regulations that allow single engine, twin engine, jet, hot air ballon and commercial flights to co-exist safely in the same air.

    The idea that companies are forced to move high tech industries overseas because of uninformed bureaucrats is unacceptable!

    Change is Good!

    Kappaseek,

    So answer Husker Bob's question!

    You are calling carbon users incompetent and immoral which must make you incompetent, immoral and a hypocrite.

    How long do you think your home of NYC would survive without carbon energy?

    Have you ever considered the 10's of thousands of acres of agricultural land would have to be converted into wind mills and solar cells to power just NYC?

    I really feel sorry for your student who are forced to listen to such naïvety.

    kappaseek,

    "You'll be hearing this more"

    The new strategy! Non believers of climate disruption must be punished! They are evil and immoral!

    If we won't believe in the climate change religion then you will use force to silence us!

    MOLON LABE!
