    Bob,

    "Who's making the sweeping generalization? "

    I am.

    Multiply that one example by thousands across hundreds of government departments and you'll figure it out.

    Bob,

    I know your context. I know your arguments.

    Sweeping generalizations are de rigueur. Mine are against large, inefficient, wasteful government. Yours are in favor.

    Bob,

    You implied government employee fraud was uncommon when you said "one (1)....", extrapolated that into "crushing the unions", and and then contrasted that to the huge list of bank CEOs who got bonuses, a number quite a bit smaller than the number of government employees arrested for fraud and abuse in any given year..

    I don't know what bank CEOs have to do with the size of government or the crushing of unions, so maybe the difficulty with points is on your end.

    Buckoux,

    Even if we don't go over the fiscal cliff, there are plenty of other stormclouds on the horizon to give the prez four more years of sinus headaches.

    Bob,

    Yes, my point is that government is too big, bears close watching at ALL times, and needs to be scaled back so that it can do its job of efficiently governing and not serve as another social program to buy votes..

    And this view is totally independent of which party happens to be in charge. the list of atrocities committed by both democratic and republican watches against the American people is long

    Government workers are just people. They're no better or worse than private sector workers, and thus deserve no special benefits or bend-over backwards benefit of the doubt which you always seem quite eager to give them.

    Bob,

    Your government bailed out those bankers and gave them that "preferential tax treatment".

    DVK,

    Once you agree on a location, the negotiations over the size and shape (hole or no hole in the middle) of that round table will begin....

    George,

    Apple's PE is low because it's an undiscovered gem....

    Okay, that's just one theory.

    It might be good to let the tax cuts expire. Then the 98 percent will be shocked to learn that the top 2 percent weren't the only beneficiaries of Bushco's tax cuts.

    George,

    Some people need to get scorched the hard way.

    I love mixing my metaphors.

    I'm noticing a lot of escapees from the yahoo stock boards. The electrified fence must be down again.

    I've never been afraid to miss the train. There's always another one leaving in fifteen minutes.

    George,

    "once the name Apple was super-imposed on the chart, the sanity disappeared. Any other stock would be expected to take a breather, at least, but the expectations for Apple were to climb higher and higher."

    Hah, that's too true. I always tell people it's fine to love the product, but never love the stock.

    jsheehan,

    I made no predictions. I merely looked at the chart for recent support levels. If there's a market correction, AAPL will correct along with everything else. The weak hands will sell, and strong hands like me will step in and buy when the selling abates.

    This isn't a knock on AAPL or its prospects, it's how markets operate. Nothing goes up in a hyperbolic curve forever.

    George,

    Oh yes, I well remember those articles. It was a heady time, with frequent predictions of $1000 or more per share by year end.

    A plunge from $700+ to $500 does tend to bring the delirious back to reality like a slap in the face. Or an ice-cold shower..

    If we go over that fiscal cliff and the market crumps, a sub-$400 price seems likely in my tarot cards. The 52-week low after all is $377.

    You AAPL supporters should not take this as a personal attack, it will probably be an excellent buying opportunity.
