    Capitulation? There has already been a 500 point bounce since the open.

  • Political issues slow broad Chick-fil-A expansion [View news story]
    free speech is a two way street. Chick-fil-A has the right to continue with their stance on same sex marriage and the politicians have the right to vote based on what they think is best economically. Personally I don't agree with Chick-Fil-A but I will defend their right to freedom of speech and expression of their beliefs. And I will defend that right for everyone and everything whether I believe in it or not. This is the United States and there isn't any part of the US Constitution that is unconstitutional!

    Will the shorts hold through the weekend; or, will they cover and take some profits?

  • Initial Jobless Claims at 277K [View news story]
    low pay and the disappearing middle class is why the economy is struggling. There aren't enough customers! As Henry Ford said.....the best customer for my cars is a well paid worker.

  • Europe extends losses as yuan devaluation deepens [View news story]
    Not being a Nobel prize winning economist my thoughts are worth something less than a grain of salt. That said. I consider China's devaluation of the Yuan as a sign of how bad the Chinese economy is and how desperate the Chinese Government is to fix it.

  • Greek stocks can't hold gains [View news story]
    What Greece needed was a package that would allow them to regain their financial footing. Granted they haven't shown any indication in the past that the are willing to make the hard decisions necessary to make this happen. But, hard line conservatives, like Ms Merkel, have pretty much guaranteed that Greece will again be in default down the road.

  • Illinois Supreme Court strikes down pension overhaul [View news story]
    Into dark shadows your were never out of the dark ...... The Illinois legislature did the same thing with the pension contributions the US Congress did with the Social Security Trust Fund..... They spent the money on something else! So now to make up for the Legislatures ignorance we penalize retirees. There is no telling how many hundreds of thousand of dollars was given up in wages to get a retirement at this level. A typical idiotic Republican solution to a problem they helped to create...... take the money from the poor and middle class. Thank God it was against the Illinois Constitution..... Or do you Republicans think that Constitutions should be followed only if you agree? This is another reason I packed my bags and left the Republican party about 10 years ago. I consider myself a "reformed" Republican which I equate to being a reformed axe murderer.

  • FCC votes 3-2 for tough net neutrality regulation [View news story]
    Again for you doubters about the good of net neutrality, read about the internet in Europe. European internet smokes the US internet and they have been regulated as public utility for a long time.

  • FCC votes 3-2 for tough net neutrality regulation [View news story]
    macb you need to read about net neutrality. The intent here is make sure everyone has access to fast internet. If it were left up to the Providers and their hinchmen the Republicans, the internet would become nothing more than another way for the big providers to soak their users for big bucks. Read a little bit about the internet in Europe where it has been regulated about the same as telephone service. They have more fios, faster speeds and lower prices than we do. All the things our Providers say can't happen.

  • Initial Jobless Claims jumps 31K to 313K [View news story]
    It it is possible the ye who laughs first laughs last on this one. I have heard nothing but negatives for the past few yrs; but, the unemployment rate keeps dropping and the stock market keeps climbing. My guess is that you are a conservative and a Republican and probably a trickle down supply sider to boot.

  • Initial Jobless Claims jumps 31K to 313K [View news story]
    Oil related layoffs? I wonder if those that advocated drill, drill, drill anywhere and
    everywhere anticipated the effects of supply exceeding demand?

  • As expected, Obama vetoes Keystone pipeline bill [View news story]
    Truthfully RJRJ I think it's just the other way around. Those of you that sell the resources for a buck without regard to the much larger consequences to the environment and the subsequent harm to all human populations are the ones that are Anti human. I have written this at least a dozen time before. Move the damn thing away from the aquifer and then build it. It is not a matter of will it leak. It is a matter of when and how much!

  • House passes Keystone pipeline bill, Obama set for veto [View news story]
    If it ever gets built I hope it goes through your back yard! It will eventually leak and it is not a matter of will it leak it is a matter of when and where will it leak. I have always said reroute it away from the aquifer and then build the damn thing. Even though, it has very little benefit for the US. The supporters overestimate the jobs and other benefits and the detractors under estimate them.
