  • Chamber study predicts Obama's "war on coal" will kill jobs [View news story]
    I wonder what Juan Williams or Bob Beckel would say about your comment? You appear to have forgotten how Juan was DUMPED by the Liberal run NPR because he had a different opinion. Liberals are hypocrites.

    Fox news had had the highest news channel ratings for something like 12 years straight, for a reason.

    I believe he is offering a comparison between apples and baseballs. Must be a union thing because I don't get it either.

  • Q1 GDP revised to decline of 1% [View news story]
    “What the heck went wrong with all the models?”

    Perhaps the BEA is using the same algorithms the IPCC uses to predict Climate Change.

    Well that's a change from your usual 'no recession in sight'. I'll assume you can see it now and just don't think it will start this year?

    "The immediate (short term) cost of shifting will be far less than the long term costs/implications of blindly burning coal. Figure it out."

    You are aware this report was released by the US Chamber of Commerce, aren't you? Given a choice between an economic analysis from the US Chamber of Commerce and ANYTHING associated with an administration who doesn't believe in budgets, I'm going to roll the dice and go with the US Chamber of Commerce.

    Investors have done well under Bernanke / Yellen.

    His (or her) question was rhetorical.

    If you want news, watch Fox. If you want to be entertained, watch MSLSD or the Missing Plane channel.

    Unions have TRASHED American businesses and they won't stop until they bring down the entire country. The union pensions played a big part in bringing down GM and the union now owns a big chunk of the company they helped bankrupt. US taxpayers got the shaft when the government sold their remaining shares leaving taxpayers with $11 billion in losses. What a raging union success story that is.

    Ask the Hostess people how their union jobs are doing. Or maybe you can travel to Detroit, recently renamed Carjack City and ask them how great the unions are. If you go to Detroit, the poster child for Democratic economic knowledge, make sure you fill up your tank before you enter the city.

  • Apple buying Beats for $3B [View news story]
    milehr, the Darwin Awards website gives 'awards' to people who manage to remove themselves from the gene pool in the dumbest way possible.

    They also give 'Honorable Mention' to those who do something incredibly stupid but manage to survive. AAPL may not de-throne Lawnchair Larry but I see this as a boneheaded move.

    We're affecting the climate so much the polar ice caps on Mars are melting too. Go figure.

    This is what our country has become; blame everyone else for your problems.

    The current generation(s) believe they can pass on an education, start dropping babies at 15, invest in bling, shiny rims, booze and dope, and when they finally figure out they screwed up, they expect the government to make things ‘equal’.

    F that. Our country is sliding into oblivion because no one wants to be held accountable for their actions anymore. Those are the true parasites on America.

    Wow, using the word ‘Research’ in their name is completely misleading.

    I have an Analyst ranking system I use as part of my daily screen of stocks receiving upgrades or down grades, and after reading this I removed Standpoint Research from the list. They are not worthy of consideration if they base ratings or PT’s on their personal viewpoints.
