    In my state you have to have a background check for every purchase, regardless of your CCW status.

    What legislation is pending to ban semi-automatic rifles? How would a ban on the same put buying in a downward swing?

  • Armour book value drops 3.1% in Q3 [View news story]
    Have I become more tolerant of using improper word forms? No, I have not. It is simply not that hard to master them.

    Not sure why you would inject race into this, not that there is any such thing as race, but that seems to be the last refuge of a scoundrel sometimes when their point is not well received.

  • Armour book value drops 3.1% in Q3 [View news story]
    lol I did for a second, but then I am the same fellow that for a year drove past a sign for Roaster Road and read the darned thing RO(long O)aster Road. Not that I can't read mind you, but that my mind had already made up what it was going to see.

    So yes, I did wonder what the hell he meant for a second.

    There is a nitwit English teacher on every board, especially this one because proper spelling and correct word usage is important for communication and it truly is not that hard and takes no time to accomplish.

    Honestly, I read the first comment and did not realize the author meant "their" and was struggling to understand what he meant by the comment.

  • Chesapeake Energy (CHK) avoided any fines related to a drilling accident in Wyoming last year that resulted in residential evacuations and the release of pollutants into the environment. Some residents are unhappy with the light treatment, but the head of the state agency responsible for overseeing oil and gas drilling says "accidents will happen." [View news story]
    Maybe if we would punish these companies like we punish drug users, they wouldn't be so cavalier when things go down the crapper.

  • Google Reader users better start looking for alternatives: citing declining usage, Google (GOOG) is shutting down the online RSS reader in 3 months. 6 less well-known products are also getting axed in the search giant's latest bout of housecleaning. Reader is arguably the most popular product to be shuttered since Larry Page began his efforts to narrow Google's product focus in 2011. Has the company finally gone too far? [View news story]
    No kidding, I use it religiously for all my programming feeds.

    Did he consider it a success? How would we know that, he is dead and gave no interviews or left any recording that we know of at any rate.

  • Hostess Brands received first-round bids from Wal-Mart (WMT +0.4%) and Kroger (KR -0.7%) for its assets, according to Bloomberg. Earlier reports suggested close to one hundred bids in total were received for the company's arsenal of well-known snack brands. [View news story]
    I think comparing Hostess to GM is really rather disingenuous. I mean 15,000 workers compared to the literally millions that would have been affected or simply thrown out of work had GM collapsed? Is such a comparison really even possible?

    Not saying that GM had to be saved, just that your basis for comparison is apples to raisins in scale and scope is all.

  • A double-take is necessary to believe some of the handles in the mREIT sector, undergoing another savage selloff as the Fed hints at even more QE. The pure-agency REITs - in direct competition with the Fed for paper - are hit hardest. AGNC -3.4%, ARR -8.1%, CMO -4.9%, WMC -7.1%, to name a few. [View news story]
    You know it. I am looking all over trying to find the money to put into all three with an eye down the road, and not even that far I should think looking at the drubbing they are taking right now.

  • Moody's reiterates a U.S. credit downgrade is possible if the deficit is not addressed, but will wait until 2013 budget negotiations are complete before taking any action. The failure of to reach agreement - and slide over the fiscal cliff - would not necessarily mean an automatic downgrade [View news story]
    Perhaps if both sides of the aisle decide to come to play this go around, something will get done?

    The blame goes on the shoulders of both parties for the last fiasco.

  • Stop worrying about the election, the fiscal cliff or the state of the economy for that matter, advises John Bogle. Investors need to stay focused on the long haul, regardless of market conditions, Bogle says. Good business will survive, so focus on investing rather than speculating. “Get out of the casino, own corporate America and hold it forever.” [View news story]
    The markets are doing great, profits are incredible, yet everyone wants him out office. Sorry, but we are doing well and I don't think I am greatest investor in the world, so, I hope he gets to stay so I can have another 4 years like this.

  • Sept. Retail Sales: +1.1% vs. +0.7% expected, +1.3% prior (revised from +0.9%). Ex-autos +1.1% vs. +0.5% expected, +0.1% prior. [View news story]
    Always wondered why that was too. Seems energy should be one of the core measures of core inflation. Sorry for the poor pun.

  • Backing up a May rumor, Digitimes claims Google (GOOG) wants to launch Nexus smartphones in partnership with with several Android OEMs at once - Samsung, LG, Sony, and HTC are named as likely candidates. Expanding the size of the Nexus line both helps Google promote an unmodified version of Android (most sales involve phones with custom UIs), and keep partners from worrying if Motorola Mobility is getting preferential treatment. [View news story]
    I have to wonder why they would not give Motorola preferential treatment? Although I guess it does spread Android and Google to more phone and tablet platforms, which is a good thing, but it really does hurt Motorola.
