  • Jobless Claims +21K to 311K [View news story]
    fool.com? Appropriate.

    The US has around $200 trillion in unfunded liabilities coming due. Social Security, Medicare, & gubmnt pensions account for close to $80 trillion.

    If the government took 100% of every persons net income (including the people who currently pay no taxes) and 100% of the net income from every US business for the next 25 years, they could not meet their financial obligations.

    It's just a matter of time.

  • Jobless Claims +21K to 311K [View news story]
    You can deny reality all you want; there is only one possible outcome to the amount of debt and unfunded liabilities the US has, and that is total collapse.

    I trade and make money daily, but I am under no illusion we can resolve the fiscal issues that have accumulated over the last 30 or 40 years. Anyone who relentlessly says 'no recession in sight' isn't looking at the whole picture.

    And where is SA's broken record this morning?

    I'm not even going to try to predict when, but the US is headed for a total economic meltdown. Americans will be moving to Detroit in search of a better life.

  • State Medicaids feeling the pinch from Sovaldi [View news story]
    I deliberately live a clean life to preserve my health … and wealth. There is no reason for me to pay for someone who shoots up drugs and yes, they represent a significant portion of people who will need this $84,000 regimen; some twice due to high relapse rates.

    I am tired of the Liberal BS where people think that for some unknown reason, I should be held responsible for the behavior of others.

    "and people, if they can't afford it, well too bad, let them die, eh?"

    If these people contracted HCV through intravenous drug use, then yes, letting them die works for me.

    If they are so poor, they should not reproduce.

    floody, $84,000 in the US compared to $900 in Egypt and you believe a Congressman will be embarrassed?

    I would like to know why Americans are subsidizing R&D costs for the rest of the planet.

  • U.S. threatens additional sanctions following Malaysia Airlines crash [View news story]
    The transcripts were released several hours ago; nothing preliminary about that or the conversations contained on the tapes. Those are facts, not propaganda.

  • U.S. threatens additional sanctions following Malaysia Airlines crash [View news story]
    There are some preliminary reports emerging that indicate the Ukrainian government intercepted telephone calls between the separatists and Russian military indicating the separatists shot the plane down. There are also reports from various news organizations of saved Tweets and Facebook posts from separatists bragging about shooting a plane down. All this prior to the discovery it was a civilian airliner and not a Ukrainian cargo plane. Whoops.

    I’m sure the separatists didn’t know it was a civilian plane, but that’s as far as you can take the word ‘accident’. I think it should be pretty clear that Putin and a handful of Russian military brass are arming the separatists and the downing of this airliner and the loss of 298 lives will prove to be a grievous error on their part.

    Putin and a handful of his cronies are going to set the Russian economy back 20 years.

  • Equities lower following report of Ukraine plane crash [View news story]
    295 dead in that crash. There were also earlier reports a Russian jet flying over Russia shot down a Ukrainian military jet flying over Ukraine.

    Don't stand in front of the fan.

    I am as far to the right as you can get and I also would like to know why Americans have to pay $84,000 while non-Americans get this drug for $900.

  • PC declines narrow (if not evaporate) in Q2 [View news story]
    I just built a new computer (tower) and used Win 7 for the build. I would never allow Win 8 on any machine I use for productivity. I have Win 8 on my tablet and it is great for touch devices, but for anything outside of a toy, it sucks.

    I’ve been using computers for 20 some years now and for the first time ever, am beginning to look at an alternative OS, all because of Win 8.

    I just read this a few days ago and can't find the article to link now, but XP upgrades to Win 7 exceed that of XP to Win 8.

  • White House requests $3.7B for border crisis [View news story]
    Obama couldn't our pi** out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.

    There's nothing 'incredible' about Obama unless you are talking about his level of failure.
