  • Reasons to Be Bullish on America: Four Stock Picks [View article]
    Frank, don't think comments are relative to optimism and the greatness of America, rather the ability of American business being allowed to do what they have done and proven in the past due to increasing government interference(s) . we are being increasingly micromanaged at all levels, by bureaucratic slugs whose major qualification is membership in some employee union and longevity of employment. the government tells MDs who they must treat and how much they can earn. Bankers get bailed out so they can buy treasuries rather than supporting their communities. Market manipulators (including rating agencies) support their friends and if you cheat, pay a fine and enjoy your stolen wealth. the retired or retiring can look for fabulous less than 1% earnings on their savings and that is taxed, I believe. Almost 1/2 of our population are on food stamps and nearly 20% are not working, because it is easier for them to take the subsidies offered.
    Agree we are a great country, but our ability to be great is being tarnished and revoked by goons like piglosi,reid,bama,fran... and the like. seems like the only way to get rid of the socialist in congress is to let the die in office like kennedy, byrd, thurmond, and the like. the country is on the wrong track and leaders are necessary to recover what we had so we can do more that outsource manufacturing to this country or that country and them have sec state hillary point out how we are democratizing the world. we need trade but fair trade, but we are not allowed to drill and pump our own oil or mine our own coal. ain't gonna stay great on this path.

  • Could it stick? Though a majority of New Yorkers seem to vociferously oppose Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposed ban on large-sized sugary drinks, Bernstein Research analyst Ali Dibadj can't help but wonder if other cities will follow the Big Apple's lead on taking on obesity and leave beverage companies jumping around from one locale to another defending consumers' right of choice. Possibly in line to play Whack-A-Mole: KO, PEP, DPS, COTT, MNST[View news story]
    if there was ever a doubt that liberalism is a disease, this provides a definitive answer. idiots need to be unelected.

  • Why $100 Oil Is Great News for These 8 Stocks [View article]
    the biggest market manipulator is the government, i.e. oil release; buying own debt with artificial money; secretly supporting foreign banks with tax dollars..the corruption of freddie and fannie. even hedge funds don't do as much damage as AIG/GM/C and other favorites of the treasury. give me a break, jack

  • Oversold: 10 'Coiled Spring' Stocks [View article]
    wow, a whole 6 cents a share for csco, really everyone says look to the future, can go higher, etc but seems to be acting like msft and intc and provides little reason to buy except that it might, could, maybe, rise. too many other better buying opportunities with less drama than csco.

    I love the smell of rightious indignation in the morning. Same transparency would be nice in government, but realistically we already know they lie.

  • ConocoPhillips (COP) CEO Ryan Lance creates a stir by warning OPEC oil ministers that North America could become self-sufficient in oil by 2025. Even if Lance overstated the likelihood for regional self-sufficiency, the potential for a radical reshape of the geopolitics and business of oil, especially if techniques pioneered in the U.S. can be copied elsewhere, must have been a cold slap in the face.  [View news story]
    about time someone stands up to opec since the state dept won't. flush the administration and America goes forward, eliminate the congressional cowards and quit kissing communist liars and the USA will rebound.

  • Chesapeake Energy (CHK -1.1%), Quicksilver Resources (KWK -1.9%) and Southwestern Energy (SWN -1.5%) trade lower after a NYT report suggests some U.S. government energy officials are skeptical about the shale gas industry. CHK's Aubrey McClendon rebuts: It's "ludicrous to allege that shale gas wells are underperforming as we sit awash in natural gas."  [View news story]
    who do I believe: some government bureaucrat or a successful business operator. government market manipulation is really becoming a major distraction to rational thought.

  • Execs from the oil industry’s Big Five are pilloried by Democrats at a Senate hearing, asking why big oil needs $4B-plus a year in tax breaks while raking in enormous profits. Republicans say that removing incentives would drive production out of the U.S. Political posturing abounded, of course, but the debate is real: Are tax breaks for big oil a consumer ripoff or smart energy policy?  [View news story]
    most business receives tax credits on taxes paid on foreign earnings. to single out 5 firms that pay enormous taxes on earnings is simple discrimination and democratic political grandstanding. ok to bail out autos and insurance, but democrats continue to push divisive politics. oil companies before the idiot from ny stated per gallon earnings of 6-8cents, while fed taxes are 18 cents. maybe if government made a profit then they could criticize, but than that will never happen. cut fed take and gas prices go down, that is pretty simple to figure our. ceo of cop said effective tax rate fro 1st quarter was 47%. amazing, none of the published earnings in media talk about taxes paid by the companies or their employees. media bias is appalling but then most journalist are liberal democrats or worse.

  • Chinese And American Demographics Contrasted [View article]
    helping those not getting the parenting or taking advantage of the education provided and attempting to learn something is hardly my problem and seems to be the mantra of liberals everywhere. as long as the dems cater to every illegal illiterate and give as many of the producers tax dollars while confiscating more the slide down the slope speeds up and creates even more resentment from the producers and tax payers. stupidity is its own reward and the construction business/unions/govern... jobs/etc will not hold them up forever. America has forgotten how to do things for themselves, and want the government to do it at every turn, look at Katrina and Sandy...where is my money for repairs, food, clothes,?

  • Fears that the U.S. drought will drive up food prices next year are mostly unfounded, WSJ's Josh Mitchell writes, calculating the average consumer will spend only an extra $2.73/month. Food accounts for only ~14% of consumers’ daily living expenses, and given that prices for other items are falling or subdued, overall inflation likely will remain muted. (also[View news story]

  • Wal-Mart (WMT) faces another lawsuit over the Mexican bribery story, this time from NYC's pension funds. Presumably these harmed funds own a lot of Wal-Mart stock. Are they paying attention?  [View news story]
    NY and CA liberals should simply sell if they don't like WMT, but have to make a feel good point by press release. liberalism is a disease.
