  • Gun-control legislation that would have required background checks online and at guns shows fails in the Senate by a 54-46 vote, short of the 60 required to pass. Some of the reasons for its falling short include concerns over the unnecessary burdens on law-abiding gun owners, and claims that it violates the Constitution’s right to bear arms. [View news story]
    Then what is reactively creating a gun control bill due to Sandy Hook, which would have had no effect whatsoever on Sandy Hook, to prevent another Sandy Hook? It's feel good legislation to sate some peoples' desire to "Do something". Slightly more intelligent than learning how to juggle if you feel you must "Do something."

    Obama and the left are doing more for gun co's than the NRA could dream of. And making a nice profit for me all the while.

  • "It's fun to be able, for once, to place yourself on the cheerleaders' side of the U.S. markets," writes Richard Russell, advising his readers to buy the DJIA ETF (DIA). "It makes sense to be on the side of the (Fed)." Russell last week: I've never seen anything like this. [View news story]

    Gotta keep global warming in check. Think of how many people might possibly die in a few decades/centuries from the temp being a couple degrees higher, and you'll be better able to come to terms with causing death from starvation today. /sarc

    If you aren't holding stocks right now, you're missing out on some good gains. If/when the economy hits the crapper again, your stocks, Im guessing, won't be one of your big concerns. There will be bigger issues to handle. Just my .02.

  • Reuters' Jack Shafer rails against the phrase "our crumbling infrastructure" and the press' all-too uncritical acceptance that hundreds of billions or trillions of dollars needs to be spent to repair it. The doom-mongering has been going on for decades, but as the Federal Highway Administration explains, bridges can be "structurally deficient" or "functionally obsolete" and still be perfectly safe. [View news story]
    MN was a design flaw in the bridge itself, not neglect/old age/deterioration.

  • President Obama will lay out yet another plan for trying to spark some life back into the economy when he gives his State of the Union address on Tuesday.

But as with countless proposals in the past, any new spending plans are likely to hit strong opposition from Republicans, who would probably prefer to hear about cuts and deficit reduction. [View news story]
