  • Boeing -1% as McCarthy calls for letting U.S. Export-Import Bank expire [View news story]
    I used to be a Republican.....I woke up one morning and powee it hit me....WTF is the matter with these people (Republicans). I'm not saying I don't wander back and forth across the fence but I seem to be on the left side of the fence more these days. I agree with Bugle Boy and it doesn't matter which side of the fence he is on 'cause me and him are on the same side on this issue.

  • Report: DOJ wants more than $10B from Citi over mortgages [View news story]
    I'm not very well read on this; but, in some instances didn't the banks do the government a favor by taking over some of these failing banks? Now the government is filing suit against the banks for actions of the failing banks they helped the government out with. It is not well stated but it seems the government has in a sense bitten the hand that helped them. I agree with Jack. Go after the individual bankers that were guilty of wrong doing.

  • Morgan vs. Goldman ... Which is the better buy? [View news story]
    I'm long both and intend to add to my positions in both as well and other financials. I expect Solar names to rebound also. Industrials like MTW NAV OSK and TEX will probably get added to depending on availability of funds.

  • Keystone approval could be "light bulb moment" for investing in Canada [View news story]
    In other words you don't have the slightest idea of what you are talking about. I will say it differently. put up or shut up. Unless the route has been moved the route of the pipeline cuts across the Ogallala aquifer in Nebraska. Just look at the two maps. The proposed route goes through Nebraska and the Ogallala has a very large presence in Nebraska. The first sentence says the the Ogallala is a shallow aquifer. Now why is the Ogalla not in danger from a spill that despite the best laid plans of mice and men will happen.

  • Keystone approval could be "light bulb moment" for investing in Canada [View news story]
    I have always said reroute it away from the Aquifer and then build it. My question here is; why should we the US put our environment at risk to the benefit of Canadian energy companies. It has been documented quite heavily that the oil isn't coming to benefit the US consumer but is headed to the Gulf for export to higher paying/profit markets.

  • Plug Power +30%, CEO says major deal expected in two to three weeks [View news story]
    I have watched and I do mean just watched fuel cells for a long time. This may not be the right time or the right company (Plug); but, if the nay sayers live long enough they will see fuel cells in common use in cars. With increasing efficiency in solar cells I wouild not be surprised to see solar powered cars too. The thing that makes me wonder about battery/electric vehicles is; somewhere there is a fossil fuel being burned to generate the electricity to charge that battery. There may be some efficiencies with fuel cells generating the electricity at the point of use and there by no transmission losses etc.

  • Oil spills into Lake Michigan from BP's Whiting refinery [View news story]
    Another reason to reroute the Keystone pipeline. Oil companies talk it; but, they don't walk it or if it is built by man it will screw up. Sooner or later the Keystone pipeline will leak with the potential of contaminating the Ogalla Aquifer. So, reroute the damn thing and then build. After all it is only a conduit to get oil to the Gulf Coast for export. Aint gonna help us!

  • Deal rumor has Plug Power cutting losses [View news story]
    Well I'm not going to say yea or nay.... but, I'll believe it when I see a big green candle on the plug chart! And, if there is something in the wind I would not expect it to be announced until after the bell.
