  • I Hate To Interrupt Today's Rally, But ... [View article]
    A bunch of bullshit. I paid into Social Security all my life and you have the nerve to call it an entitlement. That is my money that I am now collecting. Second, I have been paying through my premiums for every deadbeat out there that games medical insurance. It's time for them to pay for their own insurance. Here in GA., everyone that has a car must be insured so that if you have a wreck, you will have the coverage to pay. Why then is it so great not to have to pay your hospital bills and force the payment on us. If you cut the American Empire in half, (over 1,000 military installations world wide) you would be able to provide medical care for everyone.

  • After a sweeping rebuke representing "total collapse of investor confidence" in Chesapeake's (CHK +3%) board - shareholders rejected two directors up for re-election and only 20% approved CEO compensation - is Aubrey McClendon's ouster next? Two-thirds of CHK’s board could be new appointees by July 1, and McClendon won’t have hand-picked any of them.  [View news story]
    According to your logic, you should have sold with Aubrey getting beat up now.

  • Global Economic Descent Continues [View article]
    Just what is QE? It looks to me as the Fed giving taxpayer money to Big Banks who in turn loan it back to the Fed to collect risk free interest. If that is true, then the system is one of National Socialism.

  • No wonder Chesapeake's (CHK) board members don't want to lose their jobs: A new proxy statement reveals only one of the nine directors made under $500K last year, and that’s because he retired last June. With but one exception, each of the directors took advantage of access to CHK’s fractionally owned jets, with six directors spending over $150K each.  [View news story]
    Why would the guy retire because he only worked 20 hours a year.

    The banks went bust. So did GM. Are they a hoax. Who pays the salary of the debunkers? Who pays your salary?

    What makes you think that the people on the board are any more qualified than the rest of us? I consider them to be lucky sperm shots.

  • Here In Oklahoma, Little Surprise At McClendon's Dealings [View article]
    Hey, This is going on with the top 1% everywhere in the U.S. The laws are written for them by the congress that's in their hip pocket bought and sold. Why the outrage when this is what you people have voted for and will continue to vote for. It prevents socialism.

  • Holding First Solar Long Term: High Expected Upside [View article]
    Natural Gas has hit record lows. The last time I waited in line to fill up my car was in 1974. Conversion to LNG is happening now and the effective market price is in the 2 to 3 dollars range.
