  • Why Does Everybody Love Chile?  [View article]
    The Pinochet Government was NOT "disastrous". In fact, it was the opposite, just from an economic point of view. The author displays sloth and laziness, and groupthink with this pronouncement.

    Bachelet is a Marxist Lesbian. If you want to understand her and her plans for Chile, you only have to look at Spain's failed clown, Zapatero. Socialist policies-remember Australia's situation before Abbott?-is a guideline of the downward spiral of high taxes, public debit, and increased social spending to buy votes coupled with "boutique" policies like "Green/Renewable Energy".

  • Brazil: An Ocean Of Losses - Swimming Naked When The Tide Went Out...  [View article]
    Public, ie, gummint, run institutions in almost all cases end up the same way as Petro Brash Bash. Nationalizing companies the same thing. It was all but totally predictable. Marxists/Socialists/Co... are all the same: they are the wrecking crew of enterprise, prosperity, freedom, and security. They have a perfect, unblemished record of perfect failure.

  • Petrobras senior execs may need to resign over scandal, CEO Foster says  [View news story]
    At this point the fundamentals are terrible going forward. The stock will be very volatile due to speculative trading, and attempted price manipulation by big players to get the smaller inverstors to sucker buy in.

    You could lose your shirt very fast. Each news cycle could push the stock enormously up or down.

  • Petrobras down again as investigation deepens  [View news story]
    Why would it be a buy? Has all the corruption been made public? Are there more instances of theft and graft? Has the attitude of using PBR as an ATM for plunder and social programs changed?

    Don't worry, Dilma, your sister Obama is right behind you in the gummint takeover of vital industries. Since they then won't be operated for dirty capitalist profit, the "peeple" will benefit. Guffaw, chortle, smirk.

  • Apple outperforms as sell-side gives thumbs-up to new iPads  [View news story]
    I've been a Mac user for 23 years, and I'm an engineer that compares most devices to marine equipment. Apple's elegant, easy to use, eco system, software is superior, etc. But, along with the elegance is the hardiness, durability, and toughness of the machines themselves. They run and run like something above consumer level into industrial strength. My wife and I have dropped Powerbooks and iPand on hard tile and they suffered dents and never missed a beat.

    In a manner of speaking they are like farm tractors as well as elegant high end autos.

    I think it is real simple. Just lower the tax rates to becompetitive with the rest of the world, then you get more money. Just like taxing individuals.

  • More Buffett/CNBC: "Bonds (AGG, BND, TLT) are priced artificially," he says, and investors in long-term paper stand to lose a terrific amount of money. It echos weekend comments where he told Omaha concert-goers, "I feel sorry for people that have clung to fixed-dollar investments."  [View news story]
    Cry me those crocodile tears, Warren. It is precisely this type of market that you have helped to voluntarily create, and shape to fit your investment needs. You opposed the Keystone Pipeline because that would lessen the traffic on your railroads carrying oil in tankers. Your stake in Bank of America soared after you went to Obama and made some sort of quid pro quo.

    I equate you with George Soros.

  • "It's almost biblical," says Apollo Global (APO) CEO Leon Black. "There is a time to reap and there's a time to sow ... We are harvesting." The P-E kingpin says Apollo has unloaded about $13B in assets over the past 15 months. "The financing market is as good as we have ever seen it. It's back to 2007 levels. There is no institutional memory ... We're selling everything that's not nailed down."  [View news story]
    You know that song on Cops TV program?: "Bad boy, bad boy, what's you gonna do, what's you gonna do when the interest rate goes through (the roof)?"

    The cost of money to the banks goes up, housing market collapses, and money leaves the market. You see, the way to keep inflation down is to depress the economy to dampen demand and wages, through the statist, socialist, Marxist policies of the Democratic Progressive Socialist Party. Using stimulus and bond buying is a cheap, elitist substitute for real nutrition. It favors the wealthy and makes the markets one big casino. The aristocracy of Louis IV could not have designed a self serving system better.

    And who supports this the most: America's uncle, Warren Buffet and the rest of the Marxist Billionaires with all the right connections.
