  • 3 Thoughts On Ukraine [View article]
    China is watching the worlds reactions to Russia's incursion into the Ukraine for several reasons. China is already flexing it's muscles in the far east by attempting to reclaim, as China sees it, territorial rights in Japan, Korea, the Philippines and elsewhere. Another reason is Siberia which has a large population of Chinese and more importantly vast amounts of natural resources that are scarce in China. Siberia and China share a common border and as China strengthens it's military it could pose a threat to do to Russia what Russia is doing in the Ukraine today and what it already did in Georgia.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    That means that the companies effected will have to hire replacements for all these people and the unemployment figures will be a wash. If they are leaving because of the subsidies they get to pay for Obama care what does that say about Obama care and where does the money come from if not the subscribers.

  • Dave Van Knapp Positions For 2014: The Best Dividend Growth Stocks Will Pay Out More This Year [View article]
    Before you go please answer a question I have, with all the buying of dividend paying stocks over the last 4 years or so is this an over bought sector resulting in inflated stock prices.

  • 2 Big Banks To Own In 2014 [View article]
    Did any of these banks understand what they were getting into before acquiring these failing entities. Did they perform a due diligence before signing up to buy them and, if so, did they understand the risks they were taking on or did the government blindside them. In any case they should have known better and negotiated immunity for themselves for eventually what happened.

  • Lockheed Martin: Growing With Its Aeronautics Segment [View article]
    The Lockheed 1011 was their last venture into commercial aviation. At the time it was a technically superior airplane compared to the then 707, DC10 and 8 but never was able penetrate the market to the extent Boeing and Mac Dac was able to do. They should stick with what they know best as they are currently doing-great company with a great management team.

  • Potential South Korean Order To Expand Lockheed's F-35 International Client Reach [View article]
    I understand very well the reasons for Japanese expansion in the Pacific at the beginning of the 20th century and the war that followed, but that was then and this is now. Japan like Germany was influenced by the military powers that took over control of their respective governments and there is very little chance of that happening today. The greater threat today and in the future is China and North Korea and it must be dealt with diplomatically first, however, it should be backed up with a strong defensive posture. Yesterdays enemy is todays ally just look at Viet Nam as they draw closer to the USA and farther away from China who they already had a minor war with in the 70s over a territorial dispute. China is ramping up its armed forces with new aircraft, an aircraft carrier, command control and advanced communication systems I think that's for more that just showing the flag.

    It's about time South Korea and Japan step up to the plate and start spending more that 1% of their GDP on defense. They live in a dangerous part of the world and must take on more responsibility for defending their homeland rather than depending on us doing it for them.

  • Canada at crossroads as pipeline opponents keep up the pressure [View news story]
    More wind power so we can kill thousands of endangered bird species. Duke energy just got hit with a whopping fine for all the Golden Eagles their windmills killed. I hope this means that the Fed will go after all the others who are slaughtering thousands of birds each year with those unsightly, noisy contraptions.

  • CSX Corporation Is Heading In The Right Direction [View article]
    Minimum wage and rent control legislation are both politically motivated and have no basis in fact from an Economics standpoint. Both are used by politicians to curry favor with the voters who like themselves know nothing about economic theory to collect votes for their re election..

  • JPMorgan Subject To Government Confiscation, Disturbing Precedent Set [View article]
    Anyone; company or individual, who believes the Governments' promises only has to look no further than the American Indian and his plight today to understand that it carries no weight. If it isn't in the contract it's not part of the deal. The only way the Government mollifies the Indian is to give him a few acres to build a casino

  • Dimon's mistake: He trusted the government [View news story]
    Anyone who believes the Government will look out for them only has to look at the American Indian as an example of how well they will do that.

  • This 'Boring' Stock Has Raised Its Dividend 57 Years In A Row [View article]
    My 2000 Expedition has 204,000 miles on it and my 2002 Jeep has 119,000 miles, I purchased both new. I intend to keep the Ford until it reaches 250k whereupon I will sell it and buy another vehicle. I am considering buying a used car through one of the Rental Car agencies, Hertz, Avis or Enterprise because my impression is they have to maintain these cars for use by the public so its a low risk alternative to buying from an individual owner. Any thoughts' about this would be appreciated.
