  • It's Nothing To Do with Future Earnings  [View article]
    Enjoyed the article, but do not share your opinion. I believe there is much trouble ahead, based on the most popular reasons already laid out many times on the SA site.

    News to me. I would have thought Cramer much less effective than your standard, two sided coin.

  • BAC: Where Are the Damn Cops?  [View article]
    Thanks for the candid take on the bank activity. This sh#t is ongoing and it is rampant. It honestly would not bother me if some of the biggest crooks were prosecuted with life sentences/ no possibility of parole. Maybe some of the other white collar thieves would get the message. Of course the problem, as everyone not in a coma is keenly aware, is that those responsible for upholding the laws are just as crooked as the inside on-the-take dealers. If Madoff or Stanford currently faced the possibility of lethal injection, you can bet there'd be a helluva lot less whitecollar crime(read-taxpayers getting screwed).

  • U.S. Markets Propped Up by Delirious Toxicity  [View article]
    Goldman/ Treasury arrangement reeks of behind-the-scenes deals. Ample precedent for it, if you've read Tim Metz book Black Monday, which provided an up close look at how the stock market was turned (manipulated) by the government and trading floor specialists in the 1987 meltdown. It bought them time in 1987 to recover. I don't think it works now. Far too much toxic sh#t everywhere, mainly banks, autos, and real estate. Someone has to pay. It will be the taxpayers.

    "Somebody was selling at the trough in early March. And I was buying." Why do I think you were buying all the way down to March to?

    This article reeks of desperation. Andrew Left's short record is stellar. No way I'd own WRLD.

  • CIVIL UNREST THIS SUMMER?  [View instapost]
    As the economy heads south, the anger of the underclass will be more pronounced. Not that the politicians give two sh#ts. The average citizen struggles to pay his bills while the politicians ride around in limos with hookers.

  • Will China's Ideological Crisis Overwhelm Stimulus Spending?  [View article]
    The above Canadian newspaper, The Province, said in its May 12th issue that Rakesh suffered a stroke in March, and lost use of his left arm and side. He appeared in court in a wheelchair. I hate it that he's not posting articles now, as he was one of my favorites. I hope his medical and legal issues end up being resolved such that he has much to look forward to.

  • How Should We Improve Seeking Alpha's Comment Rating System?  [View instapost]
    doubleguns said "However whatever the solution I don't want to see a bunch of complicated mumbo jumbo because simplicity is harmony. Just get rid of the abuse." I agree. It would really be a shame to inadvertently turn readers away in an attempt to improve the system.
