  • Wall Street Breakfast: How Will The Wild Week End?  [View article]
    WHO has reported that the first vaccine for Zika is at least 18 months away.

    Which means that south america will have to deal with the rest of this mosquito season and all of next years too. North America will also have two mosquito seasons before a vaccine is possibly out.

    I will not be taking the rushed vaccine if and when it does come out. My life risk level is already high enough!

    "a cessation of hostilities in Syria" would mean a stalemate.

    There is absolutely zero chance that anyone involved in this war is going to accept a stalemate. Simple will give everyone a chance to stock up on fresh ammunition and bombs.

    Greek farmers are rioting. Seems they are upset that they have to pay higher taxes and cuts to their cadillac pension plans.

    I didn't know that farmers got pension plans?

    Two months ago Cushing was a 90% capacity. Where will they stash the stuff when it's full?

    RC,
    No one is saying that we should abandon safety requirements. The issue is efficiency and the proper use of limited tax dollars. They recalled 51 million vehicles and they only fixed 4 million of them at a cost of $152 million dollars.

    Is the automobile industry producing millions of unsafe vehicles or is NHTSA overreaching on what is being recalled?

    brett,

    But they missed 51 million vehicles!! That's the point!

    Government can't solve all of our problems all of the time. They should concentrate on prevention.

    "Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) proclaimed in a notice filed with the California Employment Development Department"

    Why should any company have to notify any government that they are going to lay off 107 people? I can understand a large company that decided to shut down with thousands of employees being laid off in one location, but 107? Really?

    Government overreach!

    "NHTSA data shows that in 2015 there were close to 900 recalls affecting a record 51M vehicles"

    Government overreach!

    I have said this about VW's recalls. The government should spend their time and our money stopping future reporting violations.

    Zika has been in Africa since at least the 50's and there have been no reported birth defects probably because the Africans have developed a natural immunity to the virus.

    The people in South America had no immunity and the effects of the disease were noticeable and were possibly transferred to unborn children.

    The virus may simply run it's course and end up being just another harmless virus.

    zorrow,

    I guess you don't understand natural immunization.

    The native Americans were devastated by european viruses because of their lack of exposure to them. We are exposed to thousands of viruses that don't make us sick because we have developed an immunity to them.

    The same thing will likely happen with Zika!

    relishman,

    Most of the waiters and bartenders that I know make in the $50K range and the good ones are upwards of $70K.

    Anyone that is working for tips in the food service industry that makes $20K a year need to immediately change jobs because they must be getting stiffed the majority of the time.

    NG will be the next fossil fuel on the chopping block.

    You missed the point.

    Once a woman has had Zika she is immune from getting again when she gets pregnant.

    zorrow,

    Comparing Trump to Wallace is like comparing Sanders to Stalin! Nonsense!

    The bottom 4 got 25% of the vote. Most of the 65% who didn't vote for Trump will eventually vote for him when he is the nominee.

    I would have agreed with you concerning Bernie a few weeks ago but he is building momentum. In Florida you don't see or hear any Hillary support, it's all Bernie Bernie Bernie.
