  • Wall Street Breakfast: Oil Prices Hit Fresh 5-Year Lows  [View article]
    I agree their wasn't intent, but there blatant disregard for the man's life. The guy was gasping that he couldn't breath and they continued to keep weight on him and had his hands cuffed behind him. It's not like the guy was out of control throwing punches at them either. He wasn't being cooperative, but then I probably wouldn't either if they were taking me to jail for selling cigarettes. It looked like involuntary manslaughter to me.

    Unless the stock is held in a retirement account. You can avoid the withholding tax that way.

    There is less freedom every year that goes by. It's a slow march to totalitarianism.

    Can you please elaborate on this? Are you saying the decline rate should be higher or lower in years 1 through 10?

    Blue, All police departments have an official complaint form and if a citizen wants that form they shouldn't have to justify it to the officer at the desk. The officer at the desk could be a buddy of the officer you want to complain about. You could tell him your complaint and then he could ignore it if there isn't a paper trail. Even worse the complainant could be subject to reprisals or harassment from the police. The behavior of the police in that video is completely inappropriate, and I'm sorry if you can't see that. There was even one incident where the guy was arrested for trying to file a complaint.

    Wyo, Actually, that information comes from an eye witness account of the guys friend who was there. When and if the car audio is ever released I'm sure it will corroborate his account. The car audio will also no doubt have the officer saying "Get away from my gun" or "Don't go for my gun." They know to say this in order to cover up. Don't believe me?

    Blue, Yeah just file a complaint and see how that works out for you. You should watch the video link I posted. And yes I understand you can go to jail, but that doesn't mean you can be shot.

    By the way, this is what happens if you try to file a complaint against one of these disrespectful thugs.

    If the police truly run up against well armed criminals, then of course they should have a SWAT team to call upon. But they are using SWAT for everything now. It's exactly this kind of military mentality that led to this whole situation. The police think that people should just ask "how high" when they say jump. They've forgotten it's their job to serve the people. This starts by being decent and respectful towards the public. What if that police officer had just pulled up beside the boys and said "excuse me, you shouldn't be walking in the street. Would you please proceed to the sidewalk?" The whole incident might have been avoided. But when you roll up and yell "get the fuck out of the street" the natural response if for the person your yelling at to get angry. I don't know about you, but if someone talks to me that way I'm going to get angry. The very fact that he approached in that manner tells me he's one of these typical testosterone fuelled assholes that they put in uniform these days. Someone dared to resist his authority so he shot them. I hope he rots in jail for this, but I'm not holding my breath. The police state knows how to protect their own.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: BofA Closes In On $16B-$17B Settlement With DOJ  [View article]
    gggl, I understand where you are coming from. The idea of self determination is a noble one. However, things are not so simple in the case of Ukraine. The only reason ethnic Russians make up so large a proportion or Ukraine is because of a genocidal famine perpetrated by Stalin against the Ukrainian people. Further, Russia signed an agreement guaranteeing the borders of Ukraine in return for Ukraine giving up their nukes. It seems quite dishonorable in light of that for Russia to be annexing Crimea and doing everything in their power to destabilize East Ukraine.

  • Who Is John Galt And What Stocks Would He Buy? Part I  [View article]
    If that's the case macro, then you haven't met any libertarians. The most important issue facing America today is the proper role of the security services. I don't think people fully appreciate how ubiquitous spying and the militarization of the police threaten the very character of America. The only people who seem to be trustworthy on this issue are left wing democrats and right wing libertarians. It makes for interesting alliances. Maybe it's simply the case that these two groups are the only ones with any real principles. The so called "centrists" are just there to acquire power and won't do anything to piss off the entrenched security establishment.

    They probably couldn't afford Taylor Schilling now that she's super famous from Orange is the New Black. It's unfortunate because Taylor Schilling was an awesome Dagny.

  • 2 Big Elephants Afraid Of A Mouse: What Apple Is Not Telling You About BlackBerry  [View article]
    If you want proof then read "No Place to Hide." The documents showing that the FISA court ordered all these internet companies to provide a backdoor for NSA are all there in black and white. As a Canadian company Blackberry is not subject to the villains at the FISA court and the NSA. By the way, Yahoo was the only company to even fight for their users. They fought the court order in FISA court and lost, so they were eventually forced to comply. Of course it is possible that we Canadians might have our own Edward Snowden someday and we'll find out CSEC is doing the exact same thing to Blackberry. For the time being, however, it seems that Blackberry is more secure.

    Wow, you make it sound like people who are concerned about the NSA are the same as 911 truthers. This is all well documented. Where have you been? Ever heard of a guy named Edward Snowden?

    He's not paranoid at all. You need to get informed. Read "No Place to Hide" by Glenn Greenwald. I don't know why americans aren't up in arms over what's being done.
