  • Republican Congressman Ron Paul plans to hold a hearing in May on the Fed's emergency loans from its discount window to non-U.S. banks. The "staggering amount" lent to these banks "provided no benefit to American taxpayers, the American economy, or even directly to American banks," Paul says.  [View news story]

  • Less Obvious Consequences of the Massachusetts Election [View article]
    People are angry but to take the result and read as broad ranging
    as you say is a stretch.....Does this mean Republicans will have to

    You raise a very good point.... we the Taxpayers have shipped to date
    over $780 billion to fight in Iraq ( and I am not including Afghanistan
    since the Taliban did house Bin Laden)...where are the hearings for
    that debacle??? Instead we attack the Fed and Ben Bernanke with
    a vehemence like he is the Taliban....misguided..... me of the
    Ox-Bow incident...with Dr. Ron Paul as Major Tetley....

  • The Stock Market Is Rigged! The Stock Market Is Not Rigged! [View article]
    Michael Lewis will cost some investors a lot money because they will decide not to invest in the stock market and as a result will miss out in the necessary real returns to retire. Meanwhile he will have achieved his goal of book sales.

  • Will the Tea Party Congress Bring Recovery? [View article]
    The acid test is if states like Oklahoma ( with 2 (tea party) republicans) which recieve 36% more in federal money than they pay in federal taxes are
    they pay are willing to cut back their federal money,,,,also Kentucky
    gets 51% more...ask Rand Paul if he is willing to cut the money to
    his constituents...if they are then we really are starting something....

    P.S. If you are asking which state gives too much...New Jersey pays for the excess money Oklahoma,Kentucky and South Carolina get combined.....

  • Election Results: Big Win for GOP, Potential Loss for the Economy [View article]
    "How will taxpayers from fiscally conservative states like Texas or Nebraska feel about bailing out threadbare Illinois or California? "

    Don't forget Oklahoma who gets 1.36 in spending for every dollar it
    pays in taxes or Kentucky who gets 1.51 in spending for every dollar it pays in taxes.....

  • 16 Good Reasons To Be Wary Of A Market Downturn [View article]
    "The U.S. Q1 2014 GDP growth was -2.9%. This was a very weak number; and it indicates the heightened probability of a new recession."

    The 1st qtr GDP number was an anomaly....the trend of jobless claims,2 year swap spreads,total nonfarm private employment,real retail sales etc etc etc indicate a very
    low probability of recession...now a 7% correction is possible at anytime...we have had a 7% correction in 25 of the last 30 years...
    There is so much liquidity sitting on the sidelines ( and a lot of SA commenters) that
    a selloff will be met with buyers.
