  • Plan C. Acknowledging there is no time to craft a "grand bargain" before year end, the President urges Congress to pass a stopgap measure, saying he'll immediately sign a bill allowing unemployment benefits to continue and preventing tax hikes on those with income under $250K/year. [View news story]
    The first comment referred to the Republicans sabotaging the economy. Spending 1.2 trillion more a year is what does that.
    Giving the Democrats more money will not stop the problem for it will not stop the spending.

  • Taking questions after a speech, the usually hawkish Minneapolis Fed chief Kocherlakota says a fall off the so-called fiscal cliff would argue for additional QE. The "fiscal cliff" refers to the 2013 expiration of tax cuts and other benefits that some argue could throw the U.S. into recession.  [View news story]
    Mad...raise taxes......What would the government do with that. Stop spending 1.3 Trillion dollars a year more than we give them. They may go down to 1.1 Trillion. But they will have endless social needs to spend more. And they will tell us again that the problem is that we do not give them enough.
    A good way to help with the problem is to have 12 year max. terms for any rep. up there.

  • China MediaExpress: Groundwork, Research, And Videos to Disprove Allegations [View article]
    It was orchestrated. The Muddy Waters article took a long time to create and was dropped with perfect timing. A number of times MW said devastating things based on what someone said and what someone told the writer. But he doesn't give those peoples names so we can verify it. It's a fraud but it gets the job done.

    I have watched the trading close for three days. There is so much money pushing this down. And so many purchases of Feb. 19th put options it approaches staggering. For of 11:25am today 800 put options were already purchased at as much as 2.55 each. The buyer does not make a profit until the stock goes to around 13.60. And he only has 11 1/2 more trading days to see it happen. I believe in the stock. Are there entities with large sums of money pushing this down. Going into the week there was already some 40% of shorts. I invite comment.

  • Why I Sold Out of China Media Express [View article]
    Steve, you and Citron planned your attack well. This week the Chinese are celebrating the New Years holiday. I am in contact with three chinese people throughout the year. All three have businesses that are shut down. You chose a weak time for any possible response on the part of any interested Chinese citizens.

    Citron: " should look at their arguments and see if you can refute them. If you were being objective the allegations would be tough to prove." And later...."you should think about them very deeply if you are long the stock." I note the way you message your reader. Then there is the illustration of the "scam artist." You devote 25% to placing CCME in the position of scam.

    Steve you are in the end casting them as a scam. I can only draw that conclusion.

    Your description of the timing of your article in relation to the Citron article is a curiosity. The first response to your article was 7:07am Tuesday morning. You sold your stock Monday at 2pm and had to sit down and get this article off that evening. Too me it looks too much like orchestration with Citron. Will you post the documentation of your sale? The last "2%" was sold at 2pm Monday. Why hold onto 2%?

    I have followed CCME for over six months. I had growing confidence in the company from the character and diversity of it's investors. I have many shares from an average of $17.70. So i lost some profit as of now.

    My real point is that when the Citron article came out i could quickly tell by reading the author that he was poor in research and even worse in his character. So i poured money into selling puts. I have never positioned myself so heavy so quickly. The options expire in 13 more trading days. I am putting the research and character of the CCME investors up against Citron on this!

  • Offshoring Is a Dubious Policy When the Question is Oil Drilling [View article]
    Mr. Frankel. I read your article. You are an idiot. Besides that you are not honest for you said "all the oil in all the offshore sites adds up to a few months of national consumption." On it's face you are dishonest and even mock truth that dominates the consideration.

  • Redwood Trust: From $30 to $4 by Year-End? [View article]
    On a technical analysis basis this stock has obvious resistance at 25. On the short side if it closes below 20 on high volume or closes below 20 for 2 days in a row. Pile on for a short!

  • Titan Machinery: Doesn't Anybody Look at Valuation? [View article]
    Glenn, I have to agree with MaxTheDog. Analysis reveals facts both positive and negative. I am familiar with the stock as a top pick by Investors Business Daily and made money on it. I am glad to know the facts presented by this article. It this author had not told us who was. Nobody yet. He can present info. and tell us he is short as well as he is long. Maybe the stock went down because he revealed the weak under belly.

  • To Meet Wind Power Goals, Government Action Needed [View article]
    I traveled out West as a boy and remember the beautiful landscape. I have seen pictures of hundreds of windmills on some of the same kind of landscape. It's unsightly. I believe the phrase is "ruins the environment." And they kill lot's of birds. Eagles too. Fueling America takes a magnificient amount of fuel. Oil and Nuclear can do it. And it keeps the wealth coming and can (if applied) take down our deficit and give us the resources to develop cleaner and lasting energies. Alternative energies add to the deficit and size of government.
    We people who still think this is the best large country in the world are sorry for your mioptic view of America John.

  • Alt Energy and Trading Green [View article]
    You Greenies deserve the utmost condemnation. Look what you did to the poor. And to the seniors on fixed incomes because you did not allow us to take the wealth we have out of OUR land. Fossil fuels do not cause global warming.
    What about the moral environment. NBC is Green and pollutes our land with it's veiwing trash. Our moral climate continues to descend and the greenies help it.
    We have a right to take the wealth out of our land. This is leading to enormous additions of government control.

  • ...And I Could Do Better Than Lieberman [View article]
    Mr. Wiandt: "spreading freedom, liberating people from oppression..." is "gibberish." Not to people who are not free and are oppressed.
    In that context you referred to an article by the New York Times where on this subject they were the reasoned ones. WOW. How turned around you are. Leading up to the Iraq war the New York Times wrote 16 editorials telling us to go to war.
