  • The Implosion Is Near: Signs Of The Bubble's Last Days [View article]
    The 720 Trillion is bogus. Nothing, including all debt, is that high.
    If you want wage growth ask the GOP. Sure their forever mantra of Lower Taxes only really helps the 1%. Finally, conservative people like you have been calling for the END OF THE WORLD for over 6 years and....nada. I know, any day now we will all be poor and hungry. If you want wage growth how about supporting unions. Union members ARE the middle class. Please note the decline of unions with the decline of the middle class. Wake me when the world ends. Yawn.

  • Wealth Disparities in U.S. Approaching 1920s Levels [View article]
    Revolt? Be serious. America is an apathetic coagulation of whiners.
    Materialism is the mantra. In democracies the people are in control and the people failed. Americans need to stop blaming the "others" for their miseries. Let's have a revolution, but you can't be receiving government aid, tax breaks or be upside down in your house because you borrowed against the equity, to join the revolution. Compared to first world countries America is not near the most heavily taxed country. I will say there is going to be a conservative third party candidate that will ensure Obama's second term. You read it here first. America has to get off their "we are the center of the universe" and realize we are at fault. In a democracy that is how it works.

  • Sam Zell Thinks Most REITs Aren't Relevant, Except His Of Course [View article]
    Trump was lucky and used other's people's money. He is not out of the woods. Plus it is hard to throw my lot in with a man who still believes that Obama was born in Kenya.

  • "If the objectives of QEII were to raise interest rates, slow economic growth, encourage speculation, and eviscerate the standard of living of the average U.S. family, then it has been enormously successful," writes Van Hoisington, adding, "these results represent the Fed's impact on the economy, regardless of their claims to the contrary."  [View news story]
    Poor conservatives, if they don't get inflation soon (they've been calling for it for 2 years) they will, I swear, go apoplectic with frustration. As the economy gets better and better (it has) they grow more frustrated and soon will start yelling conspiracy! When that happens the end is near for the DOOM AND GLOOM conservatives. The FED is right.
    Imagine that. Yea, I know wild hyper inflation coming soon. Yawn.

  • Bond Panic to Weigh on Stocks [View article]
    The post is bunk. More anti Obama, and BEN is always wrong, conservative mumbo umbo. The over use of charts is TA hocus pocus.. There will be no market crash and no bond bailout or crash. And let's raise some taxes, taxes are too low. Why do Americans think their taxes are so high---they are not. Compared to most all industrialized countries our taxes (all taxes) the US are low. The rich don't pay enough nor do the corporations.

  • Realities of the Post-Spill Gulf of Mexico [View article]
    Americans see the world changing and can't accept the fact. They MUST find conspiracies to justify their paranoid behavior. I think it also has something to do with the American's spoiled attitude that all problems must be fixed yesterday and finding fault with everything. You know, the people who blame Obama for all problems. They hate government but demand why government can't fix all the problems instantly.

  • Investment Ideas for a Republican Win in November [View article]
    Gee this was a political hit piece for the "let'em eat cake" conservative agenda? Why are you guys so under the spell of BIG oil and anything to do with the status quo? The inability of the conservative republicans to have an original meaningful thought or program is...Pick your adjective. LIke it or not white guy, we are returning to Amerika again a la 1953. BTW big coal is dead. It is a dirty wasteful energy that contributes the most to pollution and (it is really real) global warming. Health care will do just fine, nothing has changed. Greed still is the major operating factor. Every person in health care professional whines about how much money they should be making. A trillion dollar industry and there is not enough money to go around. As I said greed is king in health care. Nationalized costs, that is the only way. How would the stocks do if we returned to a monarchy like the tea baggers insist?

  • How Does $9000 Gold Sound? [View article]
    Some people are called gold bugs for a reason. Some investors have it both ways: They want to buy gold right before the end of the world comes. Doom and gloomers many of them. $9000 gold? Laughable.
    No common sense or logic, only speculation. Gold won't help in any everything buy gold is worthlesss. Gold holders go down too.

    Right, the coal companies have done a dang good job replacing coal miners way before Obama, but the tea baggers here, always ready to bash Obama and ignore facts, again are on the losing side of coal. Folks, coal is dead. Coal is dead. Get a clue and move on. Coal is the past. Let it go.

  • Ohio geologists link earthquakes to fracking, state unveils tougher rules [View news story]
    It just amazes me how you cons find conspiracy and liberalism and lies in every decision. You just will not accept facts no matter what. Life is a conspiracy? Actually the USGS did find problems. They found problems with the areas where the waste water was being introduced back into wells.You might take some time out to do some research on that FACT.

    And good reason for the war against coal---it is a dirty energy and it is time for it to go. We have plenty of NG and we must turn toward renewable energy, not dirty coal. Coal is dead. Spelled D E A D.

  • The S&P warning on U.S. debt was silent on the real danger to the economy and the federal budget: Growth could be derailed by letting too-big-to-fail banks become irresponsible again or by allowing continually rising healthcare costs, Simon Johnson writes. He fears S&P's "broad-brush" warning could whip up debt hysteria and push policies that quickly undermine growth.  [View news story]
    "rising health care costs" We are the only modern country without some form of nationalized health care and the conservatives want to give us vouchers and out on the street on our own. I got a great idea and this is the ONLY way to lower costs. Read more at your peril.
    I say let's cut the cost of health care all the people involved in health care a pay reduction. Really. Every mother's son and daughter gets a pay cut. Health care in the USA is way, way, way over priced.

  • Bonuses to senior executives are shooting up, Roger Lowenstein writes, offering a reminder of what Congress forgot when it was reforming the financial system: "Excessive pay isn’t just a problem at banks, it’s endemic to the culture of corporate America." It encourages CEOs to overreach and misallocate resources, and inequality is a major threat to U.S. democracy.  [View news story]
    Hey, you are right. There is no greed in the world and capitalism is get as much money as possible and if anyone says otherwise call them a commie or socilaist. Wow man, are you brainwashed by Rush, Beck and the FOX. Let'em eat cake, right?

  • China Green Agriculture: Why This Chinese Class Action Lawsuit Is Different Than the Rest [View article]
    Lawyers are out of bloody control. It is all about money, nothing else. The PPS goes down there must be a conspiracy so let's sue. Let's do what the Brits do and the losing side pays. In the US there is no such thing as frivolous law suit. Their day in court is their day at the money trough. Of course any meaningful legal reform is stopped because many of the legislators are lawyers. All in the family.
