  • Bonds Are Expensive, Stocks Are Expensive: The Long-Term Investor's Conundrum [View article]
    Don't tax rates and inflation have to be factored into the debate? Capital gains are gutted by high taxes not adjusted for inflation. My gains since the 70s ended up in DC's coffers.

  • Bogle On Favoring Dividends And Capitalizing Social Security [View article]
    Capitalize a Ponzi scheme? SS is taking an enormous amount of worker's and employer's cash out of the private economy, which is then channeled into government spending. The promise that SS will be there is just that, a promise. If SS is there for a future retiree, each dollar received, will be matched by millions of dollars more in national debt. When planning for retirement be sure and include your portion of the national debt..or, call your neighbor and tell him it he owns it.

  • Futures sharply higher as President hands Syria off to Congress [View news story]
    And...It's OK when millions of potential lives are aborted in so called clinics, paid for by American taxpayers?
    The only thing that's clear is that our leaders are hypocrites and morally bankrupt.

  • Peter Schiff Has It Totally Backwards - Gold Is Not Going 'To The Moon' [View article]
    We are constantly poorer... after you buy all your stuff with your more quickly gained salary and you save or invest what you have left over, those dollars are similarly eroded by the very inflation you think you are benefiting from.

  • This Summer Slowdown Will Be Different Than The Previous 3 [View article]
    Just wait till Obama Care starts picking everyone's pockets in 2014. My non profit health care insurance company tells me to expect a 100% increase.
    If the 2% payroll tax increase was blamed for a slowdown, just wait for the "Affordable Care Act" to begin. It will surely not be affordable.

  • Trends In The Cost Of Energy [View article]
    "Climate Change"...? You bet, tomorrow it's forecast to be 40 deg with some showers, somewhat cooler than today.
    If disaster casters had been alive during the ice age, just think of the panic.
    So a hundred years from now it is forecast to be 1 degree hotter than today. Also forecast, is a longer growing season, helpful when feeding extra billions of people.
    But, the climate fear mongers cry, "all our cities will be underwater!" Will this be from climate change, OR 100 more years of liberal economics?

    Just "the tip of the iceberg". Unfortunately, the USA is the Titanic, piloted by captain Obama, sure to steer his ship to an icy grave.
