  • Apple (AAPL -2.2%) responds to a weekend NYT column noting its low overall tax rate. The company touts its U.S. job-creation efforts and charitable donations, and says it has paid $5B in federal and state taxes over the first half of FY12. Jay Yarow isn't impressed, pointing out Apple includes UPS positions among the jobs it has created, and that its payment figures are inflated by taxes withheld from employees.  [View news story]
    Doesn't EVERYONE, corps or individuals, do whatever they can to minimize taxes? What kind of business would not?

  • This Is When The Bear Growls [View article]
    Thank you for pointing this out.

    Let's try to have just one oasis from snarky replies on social media, please. I mean this is not politics or religion, after all.

    This is (or should be) a site where people try to help each other by sharing information and opinion. Which can be wrong or right. No one is forcing you (one) to follow such advice.

    It's your money, folks, do as you like. But try not ridicule others if you disagree with their thoughtful conclusions. It's counterproductive and meaningless.

  • The Bubble of Uncertainty Is About to Burst [View article]
    Right. The "period of uncertainty" is over. Now the "period of stunned disbelief" that this nutcase will destroy this economy and America as we have known and loved it is beginning. Next the "period of terror and acceptance of the inevitable" will emerge. That's when we are in BIG trouble.

    But hopefully all the idiots who voted for this conman will enthusiastically heed his expert advice and buy, buy, buy stock. After all, the "profit and earnings ratio" (whatever the hell that is) is really attractive.

    Seems obvious to me that Obama wants capitalism in America to fail utterly. He wants the house to burn to the ground, so he can replace it with a shrine to Marxism.

    In my 64 years I have never feared for this country. But I most certainly do now. I never thought I would see this country destroyed, especially from within. But that train has left the station and is headed for a very steep cliff--with a sociopathic charlatan as the conductor.

  • My Dividend Growth Portfolio's 6th Birthday Report [View article]

    If the stock goes UP: Why didn't I buy a thousand shares instead of a lousy hundred.

    If the stock goes DOWN: Why did I buy that piece of #^%~.

    C'est la vie.

  • My Four-Line Summary of the G20 Communique [View article]
    "Socialism cannot compete!" says: "Beware the coming 'global financial oversight' -- unelected authorities controlling your financial (and therefore, political, social, etc.) future!!!"

    So right! Our ELECTED so-called leaders are selling out America to UNELECTED authorities, both domestic and foreign. Like the song says, "It's just a matter of time."

    I guess its true: "You get the government you deserve."

  • Pres. Obama: Counterfeiter-in-Chief? [View article]
    Chris B wrote: "And not a word about Bush?"

    Bush is ancient history. The fact is Bush left the house with a fire on the front porch. Obama and his band of nitwits decided to throw gasoline on the fire, "before a crisis turns into a catastrophe," without much thought and no deliberation. Now the whole house is burning down. Their answer?: Bring in more gasoline!

  • The Black Hole Of Jobless In America [View article]
    Just for the record, Republicans do not "control Congress." They have a majority in the House. Democrats have a majority in the Senate, hence both parties share "control" of Congress. So you might as equally say Democrats control Congress. But Democrats also control the Executive branch (tragically). They also, so it appears, control the Judiciary branch. If you are going to blame, start with the 3/4, not the 1/4.
