  • Wal-Mart (WMT +0.9%) says it will give up plans to expand into Washington, D.C. after the city council passed a bill to hike the minimum wage to $12.50 per hour. The controversial measure contains a provision exempting companies with unions from paying the higher minimum wage. [View news story]
    We won, but felt guilty and are now embracing communism to even things out, it would seem.

  • Canada's position is that the Keystone XL (TRP) pipeline would not cause a net increase in carbon emissions, Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver says, responding to Pres. Obama's statement that the U.S. should approve the project only if it did not increase carbon pollution. Oliver says at least 20% of Keystone oil would be lighter crude that would not come from tar sands, and thus not carbon intensive to produce. [View news story]
    BC stated they do not support the pipeline, that doesn't mean they did, or even can, stop it. That is up the the Fed gov., BC does not have the authority under Canada's constitution to do what you are implying.

    Marpy, if keystone is refused, Canada has stated they will simply route it to the west and the oil will go to Asia though BC, or send it east to refineries in Ontario. Dumbass obama is catering to the braindead greenie wackos, who don't realize sending it to Asia would be much worse for the environment. Canada's infrastructure to move oil will be at full capacity very soon, and they will address that issue.

  • Detroit has become the most populous city to default since Cleveland in 1978 after it missed a $39.7M debt payment on Friday.

Other measures include demanding that unsecured creditors accept a haircut of over 90%, and cutting pensions for active and retired workers. [View news story]
    Don't be too surprised by that percentage, wasn't there some lady in Ohio who voted 6 or 7 times?

    The guy lost any chance of credibility with me when he preached of needing higher taxes on the rich while fighting a battle with the IRS over a billion or so bucks he owed in income tax.

    I gave up trying to figure out why stocks do the opposite of what they should when news comes out. RGR anywhere near 45 is a buy imo.

  • 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]
    I passed meds at a childrens group home for a couple years; those kids down amphetamines like they are M&M's. Thorazine, clozaril, anything to get behavior under control. Reading their files, however, the issue stemmed from abuse/molestation well over half of the time. If the meds are the cause, expect plenty more crazy kids.

    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."

    Right? Too bad the bill didn't pass, so those non law-abiding gun owners would have to obey the law.

    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.
