  • Ford CEO talks trade on Capitol Hill [View news story]
    Tit for Tat trade policy, it's the only way. When Korea's government audits every buyer of an American car, we do the same to buyers of Korean cars - until they stop. How about we individually inspect (for safety of course) every Japanese car coming off the boat for say $10,000??? (like Japan does to our autos). We are losing our manufacturing base by being played for stupid Americans by our 'friends' in the World.

    Another example of Socialist control freaks practicing class warfare. Without a revolution, the Bus Driver will be slaughtering all opposition soon...Stalinesque?

  • General Electric Is Making A Huge Mistake [View article]
    Sarah, your comment is simply a collection of name-calling...."ignor... "arrogance", "astonishing lack of awareness", "wasting my time". Where are your facts or even unsubstantiated ideas? Seeking Alpha generally has more intelligent comments than Twitter or Facebook...please try to refrain from the name-calling. Thank you.

  • Ford Vs. GM: Where The Real Difference Lies [View article]
    XLS is a regular Ford 'smear' man. He's really the only non-credible guy doing this on Seeking Alpha, which makes him easy to ignore. Others have some info to add, which jives with other sources I read or have experienced. I have driven Buick Regals (GS - supercharged) and Ford F150's my whole adult life (61 years). They are both a couple thousand dollars less than comparable foreign brands, and have been highly reliable for me. The Buick will lose a power window around 100k to 120k miles, and the F150's spark plugs are a bitch to change. Other than that & brakes, they are comfortable, lovely vehicles to drive to 150k miles.

    You can add Mao Tse Tung to that list - who was much more influential than the other 3 combined.

  • It's Bubble Time: A Study Of Peak PE For The S&P 500 [View article]
    Hello James, thanks for the reply that sparked a good discussion with lots of references, mostly from Mr. Stuber (Bloomberg, Reuters, Time, etc) I am definately not a conspiracy theorist kind of guy. I am a truth-seeker. The 'mystery' comes from the fact that the business media reports so little on what may be a key parameter in the market. I also don't believe the central banks (other than the US - if the JPM purchasing is true) would be buying equities to prop up our market. They would be searching for higher returns on their money than 'safe' bonds currently deliver.

    I would disagree with you if you are asserting that all equity purchases would be happening transparently. I am an experienced investor/trader who absorbs many hours of news every day. Watching stock prices lurch up or down in the days before a big news announcement is commonplace.

    Hello James. I've skimmed this thread and missed any discussion of a 'mystery' market parameter that I've read references to just a few times over the last few years. That is the 'trillions (?)' of dollars in US equities being bought by foreign (Israel, Germany, etc) central banks. One article suggested that Bernanke was secretly doing the same to keep equity prices high. Your thoughts?

  • Automakers face big challenges as they look to tech solutions [View news story]
    Another new recall announced by Toyota today... You who have never designed or probably created anything but a mess in your life cannot judge the work of those who do. Wisdom: Tis easy to criticize, hard to create.

    GM just got a new leader. Give her some time to adjust to the job. She didn't create these messes, but hopefully she can deal with them. Does anyone else see a marked increase in the number of automotive recalls? (in the last few years, Toyota, Ford, GM, etc). Either the worldwide engineering competence is decreasing or US regulators are feeling empowered to 'punish' evil corporations.

  • U.S. Steel +2%, says South Korean companies are dumping pipes [View news story]
    South Korean automakers (Kia, Hyundai, etc) lie about their gas mileage while the government (until recently) audited any Korean citizen that bought an American car. With friends like this, who needs enemies?
