  • Fed Policies: Dr. Bernanke's Monster [View article]
    You say that you don't blame Ben personally,but I most certainly do.

    His policies to save the big banks and screw the middle class with zero interest is certainly something he personally deserves blame for. His statement that the elderly and middle class must suffer for the "greater good" is despicable and sounds like something out of the mouth of Stalin.

    While his policies have certainly inflated assets it is not without cost. To hide behind the mantra that there is no inflation when he knows the calculations are skewed is another sin. Ron Paul asked him last week if he ever did his own shopping but unfortunetly didn't take the line of questioning further. Every common shopper knows that there most certainly IS inflation be it higher price or the same price for a smaller container; and I don't even include energy costs.

    He is simply propping up the politicians and bankers at the expense of main street and for that he deserves a whole lot of personal criticism.

  • 'Buying Dividend Stocks For Income' Arguments Don't Make Sense [View article]
    By advocating a "class" yourself, High Yield Bonds, aren't you guilty of the very thing that you write that investors of another "class", high yield stocks, are guilty of?
    You seem to imply that high yield bonds don't have the same risks that high yield stocks have.
    In either "class", the individual stock or bond is only as good as the prospects of the company issuing the paper.

  • S&P lowers its sovereign credit rating for the U.S. from AAA to AA+. "The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government's medium-term debt dynamics."  [View news story]
    Ah, the Obama legacy is starting to be written.

    Great book. However, think positive but face reality and look at things as they really are, not as you wish they were.

  • In a defeat for organized labor, Volkswagen workers reject union [View news story]

    Now that is funny. You guys spent two years trying to coerce them into the union tent and now that they rejected you, you resort to name calling and denigrating them.

    typical, so very typical.

    All lies. Pelosi said that Obamacare will add four million jobs. You don't think she is a liar, do you?

  • Reality Check For Peter Schiff [View article]
    Inflation is everywhere. The way that the government calculates it shows there is none but don't tell that to the average Joe on Main Street. To get a simple fact check,go to a grocery store and compare the size of packages today to the size of a year or two ago, all at the same or higher price.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    From what I've seen, I doubt that many 18 year olds are ready for a real job and work which is required if daddy bought them a franchise. College for way too many is fun and games for the first two years with a little school work thrown in for diversion. Third and fourth years the percentage shifts a bit but, for too many, not all that much. The percentage that take all four years seriously isn't all that large.
    Just because one achieves a college degree doesn't mean that they learned a whole hell of a lot.
    For many, waiting tables is all they are worth even with that piece of paper.

  • Now that Washington looks to have accepted the $85B sequestration, GOP legislators are looking to see where they can apply the scalpel rather than the machete. Programs at risk include one for robotic squirrels that helps researchers understand how squirrels interact with rattlesnakes, and Nasa's research on feeding astronauts on Mars. [View news story]
    What bull. Get any "Joe from Main Street" and he could cut billions of dollars in wasteful spending in a heartbeat.

    Truth is that the politicians simply don't want to cut anything.

  • A prescient seller of solar years ago, Gordon Johnson is more bearish now than he's ever been - even with most of the stocks trading at fractions of their old values. China alone has far more panel production capacity than the world needs, and it's still adding more thanks to the government propping up these cash-flow burners. U.S. government policy is equally perverse. Top sells: FSLR, YGE, TSL, STP, ASYS[View news story]
    As this is an investment web site, please take your political garbage to the dump where it belongs.

    "Selective enforcement"?
    It helps to have friends in high places.
    Just ask Jon Corzine.

    Putin says screw you to Obama and the EU and signs the annexation treaty for Crimea.

    Next step? Who's move is it anyway.

    Watch what China does now that they know there is no opposition to whatever they might feel like doing.

    Biden is in Poland reassuring them that if they like their missile defense treaty they can keep it. Oh, sorry, the U.S. already cancelled that.

    Since when did this administration worry about a silly thing like "by law"?

    There is no explanation needed other than that Obama is hell bent to inflict as much pain on the average American as possible. Any other president in history would be working to make sure the average American had as little pain as possible, but not Obama.

    Unbelievable what this man has wrought on America.
