    "...because there are way to many people looking for somebody else to pay their way,"

    That IS the American Way, isn't it? From the beginning of the country we freely took land, resources, and even indentured slaves to work for the new colonists, things that were not ours but became so by our absconding of them, and our country prospered, despite the fact that owning slaves came back to bite through a nasty civil war and continues to this day through any socio-economic measure. There really is no free lunch, and this applies to individuals as well as to corporate handouts.

    As "The Great One" said, and I am paraphrasing here, "We are all Socialists now."

    "What it does is not only make you pay for your risk of health care costs but for everyone elses as well. So the 60 year old couple pays for maternity care, etc."

    Excuse me? This is how INSURANCE works. When you buy life insurance, you are paying out to that person who is overweight and died of a heart attack at age 43. When you purchase car insurance you are paying for the accident caused by that texting college student. ANY kind of insurance pays for costs that are done by "somebody else", until the day that you use it.

    No. Not everybody wants gates and golf. Some people want real interactions with real people.

    So much for "juicy". They have so much 'juice' in them that the courts are going to squeeze them dry!

  • Africa Opportunity Fund: Unappreciated, Underestimated And Undervalued.  [View article]
    Senegal is such a tiny country, yet it represents nearly 1/3rd in the fund, surpassing Nigeria, which is the largest African country in population? How do you explain this?

  • Is ExOne A Buy Going Into Earnings?  [View article]
    So much for it being a buy at -50% down: you'll be able to buy it cheaper tomorrow after their horrible earnings just came out! This company is a big letdown.

    I still didn't get any answer to DWCH, a competitor to both of them. What is your opinion about them vis-a-vis DATA and SPLK?

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News  [View article]
    Ok, following your line of reasoning, it stands that if companies are losing money instead of making it, that CEO's should reduce their salaries by a commensurate amount, perhaps even paying the company for them to have the chance to work there?
