  • The American Consumer Will Never Be Back [View article]
    "And if you use them to pay off previously incurred debt, you're supposedly actually saving, even though you no longer have possession of the money in any way, shape or sense, nor a choice of what to spend it on."

    Not so fast...
    You traded paper currency for an object, which you then "save" and use. Of course you no longer have the cash but you do have what that cash bought.

    I went into debt to buy a tractor. I no longer have the cash (savings), but I can now bale more hay. Yes, my tractor is depreciating slowly but I am earning more on hay sales.

    Good point, "ridiculous flaw"...I agree with you and I mentioned it in my earlier comment. You must have missed it?:

    "The author does not calculate his cost basis, or taxes due on dividends and cap gains. How can you count as "yield", cashing in a portion of your original investment?

  • 'The U.S. Is Broke' [View article]
    "the US can issue its own currency, so it can basically always pay for its obligations"

    "basically always pay"....yes, printing new paper out of thin air to pay of old obligations. Successful game of musical chairs where players know when the music will stop and new chairs are placed just in time. Phony game, phony economics and corrupt politics.

    If the battery life in Apple's new iAuto will be anything like the battery in my iPhone...Apple's EV will be more like having ED.

  • Air France-KLM won't take no for an answer from pilots [View news story]
    The striking Air France pilots hedonistic attitude is the same sort displayed by the company pilots who stalled flight 447, pulling up instead of pushing down, destroying a perfectly good aircraft and all aboard.

  • Forget Keystone - Canada moves toward oil route around Obama [View news story]
    The Obama administration is an embarrassment. Following what Michelle Obama said, but in a different way, "this is the first time in my life that I am embarrassed to be an American".
    Watching Obama not deal with the Keystone issue is like watching the Keystone Cops.
