  • 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.

    oh yeah financials popped big time pre market on the hopes of a fed rate increase. Financials have some amazing upside potential. I just don't have enough cash to buy everything I want.

    Gets some balls everyone and allocate a few shekels to the downtrodden oil and energy sector. Solar has some great potential upside. Oil (the etf) and oil itself have some big potential upside too.

  • US Job Creation Index near sever-year high [View news story]
    If the Repubs would get off their I hate Obama butts and vote for some infrastructure jobs we'd be getting those $100K jobs. Or maybe if we cut the Koch brothers taxes they'll trickle down some infrastructure jobs. Yeah right!
