  • Here Comes The Pain [View article]
    Did they really forecast Medicare costs 25 years into the future? If so, they probably didn't get that life expectancy thing right. Medicare and SS starting ages should both be tied to life expectancy. This is a no-brainer.

    Improvements in technology also make more (often expensive) medical procedures possible and effective. This helps people live longer. So part of what you are complaining about is money spent to help people live longer. What a complete waste.

  • 'NIMBYism' Is Unlikely To Derail U.S. Coal Exports [View article]
    Yes, the author seemed to get that the issue was a local one by identifiing NIMBY but forgot that by the time he got to his conclusions--to much temptation to Obama bash. There are a bunch of folks that don't want 20 big long trains a day going by their house or farm.

    Maybe we should discuss building a gas refinery next to the author's house.

  • Even With A Fiscal Cliff Deal, Stocks And The U.S. Economy Will Unravel In 2013 [View article]
    What am I wrong about?

    You wrote two articles--one is reasonable stating that our country has been deficit spending and will need to slow that down. And slowing down will hurt. But then you weaved all kinds of partisan non-sense in with it. Obama was much more left holding the empty bag when the previous clown left than the one that caused the problem. The majority of America understands that. All of a sudden you want Obama to stop deficit spending in the middle of the biggest financial mess the country has seen in almost a century. The previous leadership was blameless even though they ran up the debt during times of growth.

    Yes it is going to hurt when we start paying our way again. Just remember when we stopped paying our way.

  • Dividend Decreases Suggest U.S. Deeper In Recessionary Territory [View article]
    When I saw the title, I wondered what metric the author would use to support the thesis of Dividend Decreases. Using # companies decreasing ignores: # companies increasing, % size of the decrease, size of the companies. Based on this, I have no idea how big the decrease is or even if there is a net decrease. Does anyone have any real data on this?

    Sorry your guy didn't win. I hope writing that was helpful.

    You complain about debt then praise the "huge boost" given to the economy by the deficit spending that resulted from your man's tax cuts.

    I see that you have been a bear thru this year's rally. Too much preoccupation with government. Easy trap to fall into.

  • If Obama Wins, Sell Your Winners [View article]
    Selling winners? If you are truly one of the faithful, you need to get a sense of urgency. You didn't mention buying guns and gold. You folks need to get ready for civilization to collapse again.

    Oh, that was that other guy wasn't it.

  • 5 Years Until Retirement? What Is Your Plan? [View article]
    Would anyone be offended if I noted that articles that mention Dividend Growth Stocks are more likely to become Editors Choice articles than the average article?
