  • Wall Street Breakfast: BP To Spend $1B On Restructuring [View article]
    "Give everyone one vote for each dollar of federal taxes they pay."

    That is a one way ticket to aristocracy, and with that, what's to stop corporations from voting? Free participation in the process is a function of liberty, which of course is one of our unalienable rights.

    James, while that on the surface seems like a good idea, the right to vote is granted by citizenship, not competence or intelligence. Such tests open the door to oppressive government.

    Keep going down down down. My monthly expenses are plummeting. I'm now spending less than $40 to fill up.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: European Shares Rally Ahead Of U.S. Jobs Data [View article]
    I like HTA and VTR. They're both on my watchlist. Waiting for a drop.

    Wouldn't a reverse split be 2:1?

    The question in my mind is what on earth is Sony doing with former employees social security numbers still on file? Why aren't those records destroyed? What use do they have other than being stolen?

    Is 2hard a representative? We've been telling the Republicans to do it for 30 years. Much like Democrats have been telling their representation to shut down gitmo, or enact Universal Healthcare. Nothing but empty promises and rhetoric have been returned.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Apple Heads To Trial Over iTunes Update [View article]
    "Are you and "all the people you know" embarrassed to say they have guns, paranoid &/or just dishonest?"

    The government asked them a completely inappropriate question and they decided to protect themselves from it by lying. A healthcare associate asked a ridiculous question and they responded with a ridiculous answer.

    I guess if the IRS can ask the content of your prayers then nothing is off-limits.

    "About 50% of Americans said they had a gun in their homes in 1973. Today, about 45% say they do. Overall, 35% of Americans personally own a gun"

    I don't know how big an issue this is in the rest of the country, but I know that people where I live lie about the guns they own. Multiple people in my church said that when Obamacare was passed, surveyors came to their house to interveiw them on their health. One of the questions asked was "Do you have guns in your house? If so, how many?"

    All of the people I know responded "0".

    Anyone who hasn't already, go see Fury. It was an awesome story that grabs onto you long after you leave the theatre. I consider it an "experience" like We Were Soldiers, Black Hawk Down, Passion of the Christ, and Saving Private Ryan.

    Didn't China already have a law requiring a warning caption to appear every time someone smoked in a movie?

    ""Obesity is a national epidemic that affects millions of Americans," says FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg. "

    When I read this stuff I laugh. It's like starting a charity that installs air conditioning in poor peoples cars. Obesity is a FANTASTIC problem to have, and is a byproduct of a country's wealth and excess.

    That said this stuff doesn't work. People who would read the calorie counts are people that care about their health, and people that care about their health don't eat that horrible (delicious) stuff. Health and obesity are lifestyles, one cares about what they eat, the other doesn't.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: European Stocks Rise As Draghi Readies QE [View article]
    Declaration dates are what most people use. The Treaty of Paris wasn't until 1783 but America is considered to have officially begun with the Declaration in 1776 (England disagreed as well).

    I just wanted to clear the history up, that's all.

    Bob I don't see how that changes my point. It's no secret Austin (and his lesser known dad Moses) was working for the Mexicans when he brought the families down here.

    I was correcting the the 10 year gap in your history regarding the War for Independence and the Mexican American War.
