  • U.S. Oil Rig Uptick Indicates 1 Of 3 Things [View article]
    We have seen oil prices go up and down several times in the past 20 years. It is a finite commodity and the Saudi's cannot continue to pump like crazy. In 2006-'07, the Ghawar oilfields were reported to be in decline.
    Oil will go up again.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greece Votes 'No' - Now What? [View article]
    "~billions owed to Uncle Sugar slip through the cracks and go uncollected."

    It would be more accurate to say "billions stolen by Uncle Sugar slip through the cracks and go uncollected."
    That is food taken out of my family's mouth.

  • Trans-Pacific Partnership nears finish in Congress [View news story]
    "It would suck to find out your minimum wage job can be done at 1/2 the price. "

    That would seem to be the issue. Our minimum wage keeps increasing because politicians think it would be nice to "level the board", then everyone freaks out when foreign workers with a lower cost of living are willing to do it for less.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Ahold, Delhaize Confirm €26B Mega-Merger [View article]
    "We should be doing 80-90 MPH on the expressways as they were built for faster speeds. ALL statistics saying that speed kills are BS. Check the autobahn numbers which have areas where you can get in the Fast Lane and do 130MPH (or whatever your car can't do)."

    I must take a different stance on your analogy. Having driven on autobahns for years, and actually being involved in an accident in Germany, I have to say that speed does kill. The vehicles don't merely wreck, they practically explode.

    Statistics for the autobahns may be lower, but I attribute that to the high cost of attaining a drivers license and extensive drivers training in Europe.
    The issue in the US is that there are too many idiots on the roads.

    Hopefully, Freeport-McMoRan Oil & Gas Inc management will be better than their parent company. FCX has been a loser for years.

    "~ but would restrict them to yes-or-no votes on final agreements."

    That's the biggest mistake that can be made with any politician.

    "As for weapons handling education, perhaps that can be added to the common core curriculum, along with safe sex practice and other useful things. "

    It isn't?
    When I was a kid in Jr High, we had a class called "Conservation and Outdoors", where we learned gun safety, boating safety, and some simple conservation practices. The teacher was also the local Boy Scout troop leader.

    Safe sex was taught in health class (a required course).
