  • Dividend Stocks Will Give My Daughter $600,000 On Her 18th Birthday [View article]
    <If we assume (conservatively) that she earns $100k each summer throughout her teenage years...>

    If summer jobs are paying 100k 13 years for now, a loaf of bread will cost $300.00 and a one room apt will set you back about $50K/month. And you call this a "conservative" assumption??

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Markets Rally Ahead Of ECB Policy Meeting [View article]
    Crademn, Do employers REALLY need most people to have a year or two of college to perform the job, or are they just setting the bar that high because of the state of the job market?

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Is A Recovery In Sight? [View article]
    Bob123, I use to believe that the Repubs and Democrates where on opposite sides of the same coin...it is clear to me now that that is a false belief. They are in fact, on the same side of the same coin just one is closer to the edge than the other. The item you cite are case in point.

    Blueokie. I believe it was the "Corker Amendment" that changed the rules and made it so that a 2/3 NO vote would be required to stop the deal instead of a 2/3 YES vote to approve the Iran Deal.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: How Does The Wild Week End? [View article]
    RC, <Al Kapp (sic) had it right - "We have met the enemy and it is us."

    I think you confused Al Capp (of Lil Abner fame) with Walt Kelly (Pogo) who had the quote "We have met the enemy and he is us."

    Rich, <federal fiscal policy was negated by state administrations insisting on balanced budgets at precisely the wrong time and making up for lost tax revenue by cutting state spending.>
    I believe many of those states were bound by their States Constitution which required a "Balanced Budget".
