    Existing homes in my area sell in a week. Sellers find themselves struggling to find the replacement home. They need to build more in my area (Midwest).

    I go by a Tesla maintenance lot every day to work and my mouth waters when I see the 30 plus Teslas sitting on the lot. I understand it is easy to take a test drive.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Has The Fed Assumed A Third Mandate?  [View article]
    If slavery wasn't a big deal why did so many plantations go under after the cheap labor to service the rice farms disappear to the North? How much rice is grown in the south now? Rice was the number one crop in the south in the early 1800's. Slaves were brought over from Africa because they knew how to raise rice.

    So he should cave in and allow the access of cheap contraceptives to poor women? Are you ready to help and take care of all those unwanted babies? Or will you turn your back on them? Ask Crystal Palin how well abstinence works.

    At least the economy made greater gains under Obama than Reagan.

    I'm one of the bees. Been investing since '83 and didn't get smart until the tech bubble burst. Didn't sell a thing in 2007, 2008. All I do is buy and sell the occasional stock at a loss for tax reasons. That being said, I have great respect for the disciplined trader, you're smarter than me and seem to have a lot more time on your hands.

    Only if you've lived on either coast during the '60's and early 70's. When I moved to the SF Bay area in the late '70's, more than one person remarked to me how they could finally see the hills/mountains rather than smog.
