  • What Happened To 'Peak Oil'? [View article]
    This is the most ignorant argument.

    It is like the guy falling off of 50 story building thinking everything is fine at the fifth floor because nothing bad has yet happened.

    I don't think the IRS will be approving medical procedures under the ACA.

  • What Exactly Is So Objectionable About Obamacare? [View article]
    (0.5% of people stay in their jobs just because of the healthcare benefits)

    I think this number is higher. One benefit of the present system is that corporations can use it as a club to beat their employees into accepting lesser compensation. I guess this is why opposing Obamacare has so much political clout.

    Of course, universal Medicare makes the most sense but too many very powerful corrupt people oppose it.

  • GLD: When Will The Gold Bugs Give In? [View article]
    With the stock market in a bubble, gold is the only game in town.

    Isn't the idea to buy cheap? And if one started buying in 2002 when the FED started this nonsense one is doing just fine now with their gold.

    <Why should I be required to pay for anyone else's breast exam, prostate exam, emergency room visit, birth control, or their abortion?>

    But isn't this what you do when you buy health insurance? If you don't get sick you are paying for other's health expenses.

    Your point does not make any sense unless you oppose the whole concept of health insurance.

  • The Real Reason Inflation Never Came [View article]
    I see inflation whenever I go to the grocery store or buy gasoline, and now I see an inflated stock market and overpriced houses.

  • The Great Unwind - How Is It All Going To End? [View article]
    The best and fairest way to stimulate the economy is simply by sending everybody a check.

    Public works just for the sake of stimulating the economy can squander resources. Cash for Clunkers for example.

  • Rebuttal: 'Is A House Really A Good Investment?' [View article]
    Right now we have the government taking from the renters in the form of the Mortgage interest deduction, Fannie and Freddie, The FHA, the Fed buying MBS and on and on.

    We have truly massive government support for housing prices.

    Perforce, this means housing prices are seriously inflated in relation to everything else. Also these government supports for housing are not sustainable. Fannie and Freddie are making loans or buying MBS at artificially low rates with insufficient collateral. This means Fannie and Freddie can't stand a drop in housing prices.

    All this is causing inflation. Folks are paying for these housing prices at the grocery store and the gas station.

    This can't last.

    Buying a house now is a horrible financial decision.

  • Austrian Economics Recipe For Disaster [View article]
    In Greece, the banks were bailed out.

    You are basically apologizing for taking the wealth from the people and giving it to the banks.

    Why not let these reckless banks go bust?

    If we have all of these liberal wealth transfer programs how come the wealthy are getting even wealthier in relation to the hoi polloi?

    Actually the Republicans and Democrats are both in reverse Robin Hood mode.

  • Another Real Estate Bubble? [View article]
    There is zero evidence that deflatoni is very bad.

    In fact deflatoin is actually the one saving grace of a bad economy. And we are being robbed of this benefit to pad the pockets of the banking cartel.

  • Has Barrick Gold Deceived Investors? [View article]
    Who is paying for the defense of this lawsuit?

    I am a shareholder. This lawsuit ain't in my interests as far as I can tell.

    It is my experience that these lawsuits only feed parasitic lawyers.
