  • Deal or no deal? US downgrade looking likely [View article]
    ...and the extremists would be those that are trying to change our course from plunging over the fiscal cliff? Is that who they are? The Boehner plan is going to look like a taffy pull about 6 months from now. We can cut spending or make up for it in devaluation and rising interest rates. Take your pick. Personally, I'd always rather do the voluntary thing than the mandated-by-reality thing.

  • Deal or no deal? US downgrade looking likely [View article]
    BTW - why is it that everyone wants to extrapolate that anything that happens to a European Socialist country will happen to the U.S.? Have we completely forgotten who we are? This kind of thinking would have had us sit out WWII, as we surely would have lost.

    Great. More lamenting about the scariness of default. Has the lame-stream media been that effective? That you cannot any longer think rationally and for yourself? Get over the trauma. The debt is the scary monster in the closet (or at least used to be in the closet). Do you hear the LSM lamenting about that? No. They are clueless and WAY too obeisant to the Barack. They are court jesters toeing the party line with their king. Don't be such babies. Smart investors come equipped with a spine.

  • After Hours: A Cautious Long on Amazon.com, Shorting Juniper and Illumina [View article]
    Caution is in order in a market that is irrational. The lame-stream media is working very hard to make us all run for the hills so they can scare the conservatives in Congress into scattering like little scared girls before the awesome power of Obama. Juniper has good long term market outlook in a more rational market. Fast trade all you want but if you're looking for the longer view, keep some in your pocket.

  • Time to Sell Gold Stocks? [View article]
    So, let me get this straight. Removing the scoundrels from office that give away our money in exchange for votes and junkets, is a "Radical emotional action?" OMG. It IS too late. I thought we had a little more time before the zombies outnumbered us. We are doomed. Rather, you could be doomed. I've actually been expecting this charlatan parade and have been clocking that into my plans. I'm about as ready for mass stupidity as anyone could be, and it is off like a rocket in the Congress. Nazi Germany? Oh, Puleeeze!

  • Gridlock over raising debt limit weighs on stocks [View article]
    I'm really tired of hearing people say "catastrophic default." Bull. Just another screaming girl running down the street because her eyeliner is the wrong shade. Get a grip. This stuff has to be done. We've been putting it off way too long. Personally, I think most of the market will ignore it. What they're really looking for is intent and right now the primary intents we see are "gimme that bag of their money," and "no."

  • On the U.S. Dollar, Diamonds and Gold [View article]
    Diamonds are the most sadly overrated and overvalued "investment" on the planet. Most serious studies show that you cannot retrieve more than half the value of very "high value, high quality" stones. Just go on Craigslist and buy a shovel full. Take a $100,000 (appraised value at time of sale) diamond back to the jeweler from which you purchased it. See what they offer. If they will even buy it at all (which is unlikely), they are highly unlikely to give you more than half of what you paid for it. You can google stories like that all night long on the web.

  • Unintended Consequences of the Debt Ceiling Debate [View article]
    No, wait. I just went and read a bunch of your other posts. You're an idiot and you need to go back to school for both Economics and Spelling (and, some History wouldn't hurt). And, while you're there...stay there.

  • Unintended Consequences of the Debt Ceiling Debate [View article]
    I get it. Doing the right thing, finally, is the wrong thing. So, we should do the wrong thing, as it will have the right results. So, we greatly increase the debt ceiling and turn the morons in DC loose with the checkbook, for another round. That would be the right thing. Right? And, it would still be courtesy of the Republicans? I get it...

    Great! Our currency still wins because it smells very slightly less gag-inducing than most of the other Socialist countries... We win! What a claim to fame.

  • Congress seeks debt solution, Obama goes to public [View article]
    Oh, come on Wyatt - the VAT is the only way we'll get to really know how it feels to be Greece. Until we turn this sail loose, we're hampering the royalty in DC from doing a spending makeover to end all makeovers. The REAL Housewives of D.C.! Starts in the Fall season on CBS.

    Yep. Drain the swamp. Why is it we cannot get anyone in the LameStreamMedia to even mention the possibility of term limits? I have yet to talk to a single person of ANY political ideology who doesn't want term limits. But is it on the menu? Not that I can see...

    I gotta go with Wyatt on this one.
    “Patriotism is easy to understand in America. It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.” -- President Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States.

    Who's looking out for the country in Washington? It certainly isn't Obama. It wasn't Nancy Pelosi. It's not Harry Reid. Oh sure, there are plenty of Repubs that should walk the plank with them, but the charge is being led by the Left and they've done a fantastic job of class envy, class warfare and good ol' fashioned "Organizing."

    “[The organizer] must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.” --Saul Alinsky, mentor to B. Hussein Obama, in his book, Rules for Radicals.

    And there you have it folks - dissatisfaction and discontent. If they can keep the American Moron focused on those two things they can get away with murder inside the Beltway. The victim is us.

  • Cisco Has 50% Upside Potential [View article]
    Here's another anecdote from the "front lines" - yes, CSCO is giving away UCS like candy, but their customers are ambivalent about it and there are as many customers calling CSCO's competitors to see what they have, as there are that are "happy" with UCS. UCS is VERY proprietary and the lockin is so severe that if CSCO can't deliver new technologies as quickly as the market matures and changes, those that have hitched their wagon to UCS are going to be wondering about the quality of their decision a lot sooner than you think. Lockin is a serious thing in the datacenter - "one throat to choke" sounds good until you have absolutely no other choice on which throat. Choice is good and CXO's know it - you won't get that at CSCO. And that really IS what's going on at the "front lines."
