  • Natural Gas Transportation: What's Taking The U.S. So Long? [View article]
    Our lack of a current energy policy is because the Obama administration does not want to show any support for ANY fossil fuels whatsoever. We ought to be encouraging the needed infrastructure and transition to a nationwide trucking system run on LPG. This together with working together with both Mexico and Canada could enable North America to be energy independent from the rest of the world. But that means the government supporting the use of fossil fuels. Forget about the fact battery technology has not yet produced a battery that is not only long lasting, but cheaper and capable of holding dramatically more energy per KG than even the best battery Tesla uses. Battery technology advances slowly and the LI-ion battery still makes us dependent upon other nations for the raw materials to produce them.

  • Why Buying A House Is A Terrible Investment [View article]
    I don't disagree that buying and holding a home long term has a lot of negatives that can often times easily offset any perceived gains, but that isn't to say there doesn't exist opportunities to buy a fixer up and turn it for a profit. But that's not really what is being discussed above, and even the fixer upper is now representing an increasingly riskier opportunity than any time in the last 20 years, and what with that one might find better risk/return opportunities in other places.

  • Last Year's Master Is This Year's Victim [View article]
    IMHO, home values need to drop to rectify the combination of a lower standard of living for the greater number of Americans, and the overbuild of the last decade. I see homebuilders building cheaper homes and raw land taking a hit before this all works through the housing market.

    If the administration had the people's backs, they would have filed a criminal indictment for manslaughter for their reckless disregard for the lives of people.It ought not be a surprise to anyone, the company was more involved in covering up their earlier findings then facing such a large recall that would cost them millions.

    Newswires reporting Putin agreed to abide by the Ukrainian elections. Much too much made of this statement. Come Monday morning he can simply state the elections were fixed and don't reflect the will of the people.

    'Very small number of customers' = people that have driven enough miles and drive at highway speeds.

    *So, if only Japanese leadership could string along consumers every quarter with the expectation of a sales tax rise in the immediate future, and if Japanese consumers had unlimited resources to respond.

    *Frankly, when countries in the Eurozone report any GDP growth I've always assumed, like in the US, a lot of data manipulation to arrive at the best result possible, essentially putting lipstick on a rotting pig.

    *The European decision to require Google to scrub their results is just censorship. If you look closer, I'm sure you'll find people involved with the decision will be looking to get their own personal information scrubbed from the Internet. This type of censorship ensures the truth will be buried forevermore.

    Mel Watt is intent on seeing the mortgage market like it was in 2005-2006. The days when people would camp out to overbid for new homes just coming available. The days when everyone believed real estate can only go up, and there's only a finite amount of land in which to build. Ya know, the good old days when you didn't need to be employed, have an income, nor a down payment to qualify.

    From what I've seen, the better hybrids don't see as much depreciation. I expect pure EC vehicles will see a lot more depreciation than all other vehicles just on account of the need for a expensive replacement battery.

    There isn't any way the government will stop the Time Warner/Comcast merger being they are such a direct ally and friend of the administration. That makes for the perfect backdrop for others in the space to also seek out mergers, if so inclined and also willing to pay the required tribute to key political campaigns.

    While I agree US GDP numbers are indeed, suspect, especially with the recent changes included this past July , its not too likely China will subtract the noncollectable loans made to build entire cities that remain unoccupied still, 5 years later.

    You mean there's another way? LOL! We all know the truth is its more advantageous for politicians to make big promises that they can push off on the next generations to fulfill. In the meantime, they get reelected, earn an even better pension of their own, and they'll be long since retired when the feces hits the fan.

    Ain't that the truth. I sense a lot of their problems with email have to do with trying to fix what wasn't broke, and now it is.
