  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Woodyj, both parties have screwed up this country over the last 50 years, they used SS for a piggy bank until they almost broke it, they have increased the number of entitlement programs and agencies to the point you can't even get a count on them!

    At what point do we pull in the reins and run the country as fiscally responsible as you run your life and business?? At some point you have to take the words of your great democrat "ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY!" Cut backs and the shrinking of government are on the way because we simply can't afford it any more!

    Unless you want the quote from your other great democrat Bill Clinton - "Monica, you better get that dress dry cleaned!"

  • General Electric: What Does The Future Hold? [View article]
    Your correct Michael, Jack Welch turned GE into a giant finance company that happened to own a turbine company, jet engine company, consumer appliance company..........GE Finance/Credit was in line for big Tarp money when housing and car loans crashed.

    If the world is slowing down, it's tough to believe that this company is going to be doing any better.

    Imagine that, our budget deficit SOARED and Washington sits on its ass as the walls collapse around us!! We are printing money, giving away the house on trade policy, failing miserably on foreign policy and for my lifetime we have had no energy policy. Our free market system is temporarily gone and government has grown and is in every facet of our life from business regulation to super sized meals and 40oz. cokes.

    All is well according to the press and our leader.

    Bernake and Obama have spent us into collapse. Now Obama demands $1.6 trillion more tax revenue over the next ten years.

    Well well well, another day, the same BS.

    Japan at another fiscal cliff. Greece, and all of Europe, at another fiscal cliff. The U.S. at a fiscal cliff. The world in another recession.

    It's nice to know that whatever human is voted into office anywhere in the world to protect us and do the right thing and spend our monies properly NEVER DO!! Consistency is crucial.

    On to Iran, they are a huge problem but Russia and China complicate it further by not honoring any sanctions! Russia sold and developed their nuclear program and China buys all their oil. Don't think for one minute that Russia hasn't sold them a missle delivery system for a nuclear weapon, Biden is full of sh*t.

    This clusterfuck of a world is getting worse each day and the middle east is a powder keg ready to blow. Countries are bankrupt but all is well.

    Glad everyone thinks things are so great.

  • Even With A Fiscal Cliff Deal, Stocks And The U.S. Economy Will Unravel In 2013 [View article]
    I couldn't agree more! Give a wealthy guy money and he is gonna figure out a way to make it work for him - most likely invest it in something. If that doesn't help create jobs then GEOST you have no understanding of how these people became "rich".

    The real issue IS NOT relieving the wealth of their monies but cutting off the hands of our elected officials so they can't spend another penny of OUR money!

    The author is correct: fannie/freddie/fha/sal... post office, amtrack, SEC, Dept of the Interior.......every business the gov is is is a massive loser and there is NO ACCOUNTABILITY! Was one official fired for any of the Wall Street failures? How about the Gulf oil spill? NONE!

    This country is failing GEOST because lemmings like you believe the bullshit about taking money from someone else who has it to solve a problem. The problem is Washington, not the wealthy guy!

    The problem is that our economy sucks and $20,000,000,000,000,000 will make us a third world country. The problem is that Washington is a spending junky. The problem is that the middle class pays virtually NO income tax and has no stake in the game! The problem is that we have NO energy policy and won't use our natural resources oil/coal/ng!!!!!

    The problem is that we have lots of problems and really only have to solve one or two to get back on track but we won't do it.

    Pretty soon they will be taking every penny to keep the country afloat!

    If you are smart, get gold and silver coins/bullion and hid it. Convert or hide your cash in the mattress because Obama will be in your pockets, wealthy or not very very soon.

    You can't keep giving away the house my friend.

    You are correct ultrarunner but if you look at oil consumption, virtually every drop that comes out of the ground gets consumed and ANY interruption of the supply will send it through the roof. We need to drill, use our natural gas and coal supplies and get ourselves off the bubbling crude so we can control our own destiny.

    Additionally, we won't have to go and protect the Saudi's or any other oil interest if we don't need it!

    Author, if it's not the upcoming fiscal cliff it will be the additional $4 to $6 trillion Obama will spend the next 4 years, or our lack of energy policy and the dependence on foreign oil and/or the Middle East blowing up with the problems in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Egypt....., or with Europe closer everyday to insolvency and wiping out 10% to 20% of our GDP......

    You pick your poison, the picture moving "FORWARD" with the wrong vision won't get you anywhere!!

    That's right D_Virginia unfortunately it is gonna take 4 more years of gridlock, spending, lack of energy and foreign policy, higher unemployment, hyper-inflation and a depression to keep all of the lemmings from moving "FORWARD" over the edge of the cliff.

    Europe is going to go into a depression and with all their debt the worlds domino's will start to fall, including my beloved country.

    It's time to buy more gold and silver and hang on for dear life. I don't think we can print enough money to keep things from getting worse.

    What scares me about every home lending institution is that there is no more mark to market and there are still about 9 million homes nationally in the foreclosure pipeline and more on the way still!!

    Imagine getting rid of government subsidies for this whole energy sector and B. Pickens LNG fuel taking over the majority of vehicles on the road!!

    No more sending our troops out to fight to protect the flow of oil. Build the pipeline from Canada to the U.S., use our other big resource COAL!

    Let the Middle East rot and except for protecting our ally Israel, they can ride their camels off into the sunset when our good friends won't be shipping their sweet crude here anymore!

  • If Obama Wins, Sell Your Winners [View article]
    You know Snoopy, you can apply Obama's twisted logic to this just by saying that NY and CA got more money! If they were Repub states that would be the story line!

    Just like the jobs numbers Friday - BIGGEST SINGLE MONTH INCREASE! Whoooooo hoooooooo

    The real story is that unemployment ticked back up .01% and we are no better off than 4 years ago - thanks Rick Santalli
