  • Wall Street Breakfast: Dollar Drifts Ahead Of Consumer Inflation Data [View article]
    Bob,

    "No, I see no point you are making. Simply arguing for the sake of arguing."

    Here's my point which sailed right over your head. Fairness doctrines are meaningless political pap and insult the principles of free speech.

    "You implied that there is such a thing as "left wing talk hate radio" and it is equivalent to the right's."

    Yes, there is left wing hate talk radio and yes, it does spew lies and hatred. It's similar to the right wing version. The true believers are unable to see this however.

    Bob,

    You seem confused.

    'Twas you who first brought up Hillary's emails. 'Twas you who first brought up Morning Joe and Fox news. And now 'tis you bringing up two further unrelated topics, social security and Medicare.

    And no, I still don't watch Fox news nor MSNBC.

  • Why I Purchased Schwab's U.S Dividend Equity ETF As A Dividend Growth Investment [View article]
    "My actual stock picks (not my index skimming) have drastically outperformed the appropriate benchmark while David has under-performed (which he has been honest to report along the way)."

    Is that the Scaredy cat portfolio or just Tim Hortons?

    vato,

    "How are we supposed to feel the pride of hard work from stock picking if we just buy a fund? Nobody is gonna have nothing to talk about here no more. "-

    Millions talk all about funds each and every day over on bogleheads.org.

    "There is evidence that most stock pickers tend to do worse than average."

    What evidence? What does "most" mean? And what qualifies as "stock picking"? Day traders pick and hold stocks for a few minutes to a few hours, are they included in that "most"?

    Bob,

    "The Fairness Doctrine would expose the fact that Scott Walker and Jeb Bush also had private e-mail servers in their government offices and essentially did the same thing"

    Actually I have heard that from several media sources. Would the Fairness Doctrine have suppressed it?

    But in all fairness, why shouldn't Hillary be vetted like any other front-runner candidate?


    "But you didn't hear that on Fox, did you. And on MSNBC you only heard Morning Joke go on about Hillary's 'crimes'."

    You're right, I didn't hear it on Fox or on Morning Joe, I never watch Fox news and haven't watched Morning Joe since the run up to the 2010 election.

    If you're upset about the bad press Hillary's getting early in her campaign, you'd better buckle in. It will only get worse.

    Bob,

    "On the radio left we have, errr, ah, ahem. Well, they must exist somewhere."

    They do. PBS, Thom Hartman, Stephanie Miller, Alan Colmes, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes spring to mind. I'm sure you've heard of them. You probably even have their autographs.

    "Regarding MSNBC being to the 'left', yeah, I'll consider that when I see Morning Jo(k)e tomorrow discuss Hillary's 'e-mail problem' part 47"

    You bring up a good point, discussion of Hillary's emails and anything detrimental to democratic candidates or the current administration would clearly be off limits under your Fairness Doctrine.

    "A fifth grader will not beat a PhD in a spelling contest."

    When was the last time a PhD beat a fifth grader in the Scripps National spelling bee?

    "here are more of "us" then you -- and more so all the time, as the youth coming up are more 'liberal' then ever."

    And the last election results showed that ever so plainly...

    "The Fairness Doctrine -- simply states that issues must be accurately and fairly presented -- with BOTH viewpoints (if there are disagreements) given equal and fair representation.

    Apparently, you still don't understand that."

    Sorry, I was lead astray by your one-sided rant. My apologies.

    Dave,

    Hah, your comment just reminded me of Wade Cook. I hadn't thought of the guy in years. I wonder if he's still in prison...

    " Then a year later he's hitting me up for money and blames it on bad luck. He's a smart cabrĂ³n."

    The only people around here mentioning luck in any context are the naysayers. That says a lot.

    "Reagan's lasting legacies were increasing the national debt at the highest level ever and illegal attempts to avoid laws (Iran-Contra). "

    That's eerily similar to the legacy of our current President...
