  • Wall Street Breakfast: Chinese Shares Burst Government Support Dam [View article]
    I fear you missed the attempt at humor of my previous post....and I did know that health care people have the most on the job injuries (and I would bet the actual rate is even higher than reported).

    I can understand why library occupations would be unionized what with the onerous/and moderately dangerous Dewey Decimal System, oppressive work conditions and being constantly required to tell patrons to "Shush!", but why Police, Firemen, Highway Patrol and Corrections Officers?

    Christinebitg, you wrote, "The number of surfacings needs to exactly equal the number of times that you dive."
    As a former Submariner, I firmly believe in that statement.

  • Buy Chevron Now For Income [View article]
    <im tired of hearing talk about a middle east event!!!! The whole damn middle is in a firestorm right now.

    Saudis bombing Yemen
    ISIS fighting in Iraq and Syria and Libya
    US coalition bombing in Iraq and Syria
    Egyptian unrest in the Sinai
    Turkey discussing invading Syria to establish a "buffer zone"

    If this isn't having an upward effect on oil then what would???????? >

    What has not yet happened is a serious disruption in the flow of oil from the ME. If/when that happens, watch the price of oil shoot higher.

    Disc: Long BP, COP, CVX, KMI

    Just did a search of gas prices here in Glendale, Az and they run from $2.75/gal up to $3.03/gal unleaded. Most seem to be about $2.85/gal

    Blueline, I agree. In 10 years or perhaps sooner, these companies will be gone for the reason you state.

    Crademan, in theory I believe you are 100% correct about workers needing to learn about investing. In real life, I fear far too many of those individuals believe that retirement is a lost dream and/or Social Security will suffice, therefore, why save something today for a tomorrow that won't come.

    Sad....

    Michael, you wrote, <As an attorney, I was trained to follow the evidence and to only come to conclusions that were warranted by the facts.>

    If so, how many times in have you stood with your client in front of a judge and said, "Your Honor, after looking at the evidence the only conclusion that is warranted is my client is guilty as hell and deserves to have the book thrown at him."
    Or are all your clients innocent?
