  • Don't Believe Long-Term Oil Forecasts [View article]
    You are cherry picking technologies.

    One could place a small nuclear reactor into the size of a grapefruit, capable of running an automobile (or similar sized machine) for 1000 years.

    The only thing it would need is water in the tank instead of oil (byproduct is H2O - clean).

    What we have is a cornered market on nuclear uses -- WHY!? Because there is money left on the table if corporations (the only entities sizable enough to corner the market) can't sell you more expensive product in the near term.

    Wake up fools, there are answers everywhere but not if one doesn't look and expand their technology horizon.

    Energy problems have the one common simple solution of social will. Non less than the blubbering corporatists paying for politics against this will. BOOO HOOO!

    You sharts keeping the conversation around oil are the problem.

  • Have We Reached the End of the Private Sector Economy? [View article]
    Cmon, you act like lying, cheating and stealing aren't bad things! That's the "NEW NORMAL" -- rewarding failure and all of the above in the name of "greed is good" only.

    Even Helen Keller could see and understand that this clearly illustrates a HUGE dislocation in POWER, not money. The few that already have the most, stealing even more while protected leadership (aka those WITH) also helping themselves to more.

    Money is the catalyst, soon to be red herring, folks. Open your damn eyes. Ask yourself when you are going to get a bonus, or perhaps even a j-o-b.

  • Jon Friedman wonders whether Jim Cramer is defiant, or just clueless. "When Cramer writes about the stock market for New York magazine, there is no better or more knowledgeable Wall Street pundit around. He is that good. But when he turns into his Mr. Hyde persona on television, his brilliance gets lost in the noise."  [View news story]
    No standards is a good point, but when he is preaching to the sheeple about separating their money (long track record of horrible money losing recommendations) and his industry I draw a different conclusion.

    Sometimes protecting people from themselves requires that the plug is pulled on Jim-the-crook.

    Jim Cramer is one thing - a crook.

    The fact that CNBC and anyone else attributes him is utterly deplorable and such news sources should be ashamed -- now bow to your mafia masters.

  • Are Hedge Funds Missing the Rally? [View article]
    Bingo White Shield.

    There is nothing left to trade that isn't a scam to fleece the taxpayer.

    The hedgies' are doing what they should be doing -- building massive short positions in equity markets (why else doe one note the aforementioned PPT computer trading of GS) and long commodities.

    Don't agree? Watch what happens the next three months.

  • As Google (GOOG) pushes its Android mobile phone operating system onto computers, Microsoft (MSFT) is trying to extend its operating system to the rapidly growing set of consumer gadgets that includes media players, navigation systems, digital picture frames and digital TVs.  [View news story]
    Microsoft couldn't sell ice to coca cola. Short the hell out of that stock if you know what's good for you and your portfolio.

  • Oracle (ORCL) CEO Larry Ellison says he won't sell off Sun Microsystem's (JAVA) hardware business, putting an end to speculation that he only wanted Sun for its software units.  [View news story]
    Of course he won't.

    Sun's hardware is enterprise world class from acquisitions like StorageTek.

    SPARC? Go back to the 90's. ;)

  • A five-story office building on South Church Street in the Caymans serves as the official address for 18,857 corporations, about half of them U.S. firms.  [View news story]
    If a US citizen cannot list an address in the Caymans on their 1040 for "commercial considerations," then why the hell would a corporation be able to??

    So, I'm bailing out the organizations that don't even show up to pay their share?? Yet they are responsible for wrecking our democracy??

    Time for trust-busting. Business is WAAAAY too big.

  • Rick Wagoner Can't Get No Respect - Or, Great Moments in Copyediting History [View article]
    This is a sign of the times and precisely why I don't read bullshit commentary from uninformed, idiots.

    The media is a train wreck...

    I wonder if this was outsourced to either a Jr. High student, or out of the country (too).

  • Geithner's bank detox plan will fail, Nassim Taleb says. "I want an overhaul... this is not it." Author of The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable says he's sick of subsidizing corporate failure: "Taxpayers take the downside and Wall Street as usual is going to take the upside..."  [View news story]
    We're simply rewarding bad behavior at the expense of those who didn't and continue to make prudent and wise choices.

    We're socializing our democracy, turning our back on individual freedom and corporate accountability.

    All that have done well are being sacrificed, along with their children, and grandchildren... arguably the rest of the world.

    Organized crime is rampant, deliberate, and inconsequential to those orchestrating this catastrophe.

  • Paul Krugman on America the Tarnished: "The financial crisis has had many costs. And one of those costs is the damage to America’s reputation, an asset we’ve lost just when we, and the world, need it most."  [View news story]
    Krugman is arrogant and blind. The rest of the world never gave us any credibility to begin with, and nor did I.

    9/11 proved that many weren't happy with the policies of the United States on the world stage, not something "new", and yet we still believe that it's Al-Qaeda which in English REALLY means Goldman Sachs!

    Mission Accomplished.

  • "Evidence abounds that boards of directors at some systemically important financial firms in the U.S. were rendered as a 'gentlemen's club,'" PBoC writes in yet another diatribe. Qu Hongbin, HSBC's chief economist for China, says Beijing's moves are a precursor for what it plans to say at next week's G20 meeting.  [View news story]
    It's a sad day when it takes a Communist nation to point out the obvious looting and thieving which took/is taking place in broad daylight in the US.

    They are going to punch us in the face and we utterly deserve it!

  • FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair says she's open to letting banks see some of the profits if they dump problem loans that ultimately recover some value. Bankers worry that unloading toxic loans at bargain prices to clean up their books will bring immediate pain - while transferring the prospect of any future recovery to the buyers.  [View news story]
    Translation: Privatize the profits and give ol-johnny taxpayer the problem and the losses. How many wrongs do these people think it takes to make a right!?

    Thanks for nothing you stupid bi*ch, and to think taxpayers pay YOUR salary too! -- YOU'RE FIRED.

  • Meanwhile Elliot Spitzer says we should forget the bonuses and address the real scandal: "Why are AIG's counterparties getting paid back in full, to the tune of tens of billions of taxpayer dollars?"  [View news story]
    This answer is so obvious -- because the US public, so-called leadership, Congress, and everyone else is nothing but suckers...

    Say it out loud now, "I am a sucker."
