  • Do You Believe Banks Are Recovering? (Part 2) [View article]
    The government is too stupid to accomplish even a small fraction of what you allege. Assuming they even had a motive, which is highly doubtful.

    Yeah. Elvis is alive and doing fine, too. So are Sasquatch, Big Foot, and Loch Ness. I'd post more, but I have to catch a ride back to Mars.

  • The Derby Trade [View article]
    Much enjoyed the timely article. Enjoy your other articles also. I personally see NO difference between gambling and buying Citi stock at $3 per share. None. In fact, I think boxing Quality Road, I Want Revenge, and Dunkirk in this Kentucky Derby is a far sounder investment than many of popular stock plays loaded with the toxic derivative sh#t. Just my opinion.

    Paulson, Bernanke, Lewis and their ilk--------All the major players in American banking and economics are an embarrassment. I mean, a f#&ing joke. No wonder the economy is in the sewer.

  • Looks Like GM, Chrysler Are Goners [View article]
    You raise a legitimate point, but it's moot, since GM is rapidly vanishing down the sewer. Within months GM will be the answer to trivia question.

    When it comes to Wells, I'd much prefer listening to Tyler over Warren.
