  • Update: Wal-Mart's New Initiatives To Boost U.S. Sales [View article]
    Walmart is too big to oversee their stores. Watch their employees and who gets promoted - no longer the best worker, but the best corporate 'yes man'. See it in my local walmart all the time. The store manager at my local walmart is an idiot, and one of the workers performs better than anyone else, yet never gets promoted.

    Prices are routinely incorrect, stock selection is poor etc. Sam Walton would be pissed.

  • Tesla: The Short Of The Decade? [View article]
    Tesla is doing what other manufactures hope to be doing in the future.

    In the cell phone market, Nokia was once GM. Apple was once Tesla.

  • Government Of Canada Prepares For A Housing Crash [View article]
    That pdf quotes the $114 Billion, but the number is actually $275 Billion that was given to them. Most people don't even acknowledge the $114 Billion. Canadians have their heads stuck in the sand 365 days a year. Most ignorant people I have ever dealt with in my life.

    If I do, will you give me compensation? Just asking because most Canadians always think they know more than they do - pisses me off. Like when I tell them that their health care isn't free, they stare at me in disbelief.

    I had to put up 15% and could only get a mortgage through a broker, not directly from the bank.

    tiger8896,

    That's why a democracy is a terrible form of government. A democracy can bankrupt a country with the will of a pluarity of people.

  • The USPS burns through another $2B [View news story]
    I live in Canada, but have used FedEx, UPS and USPS many times when I have ordered internatinally. Also, I have visited both UPS and USPS outlets while travelling and conducting activities upon my visit to America.

    The USPS is excellent in terms of price, customer service etc. Getting packages internationally is faster with UPS and FEDEX, but the customs charges are VERY EXPENSIVE - between $30 and $50, on average, on top of the delivery cost when I ask UPS and FEDEX to handle customs clearence. USPS has their customs fees included.

    USPS needs to raise their prices to a point that they are revenue neutral or profitable. Or cut expenses.

    JNJ is the ultimate stock - consumer and healthcare with strong 5 year DGR. You can't beat a company like that.

  • Russia takes aim at McDonald's as ties with U.S. worsen [View news story]
    Obama would love to be admired as the next great communist leader - Mao, Stalin, Kim Jun Il etc.

    Obama would love to bring poverty to America and then retire in Hawaii in a 35 million dollar mansion, eating caviar. The man has no soul. He represents the Devil on earth.

    There isn't growth in America - too many EBT card holders shopping at discounters, too many people on disability, too many illegals siphoning off your social programs etc.

    America is like a swamp that is drying up.
