    GAP profit falls----

    I am so sick of companies financials being compared to the "estimate".

    Go back to the historical comparision to last year. Actual number this year compared to actual number last year.

    And, how in hell can they miss the "estimate" when it is the company itself that gives the "estimate". This whole estimate nonsence is a shell game.

  • House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says it's time for Americans to "come to grips with the fact that promises have been made that frankly are not going to be kept for many," and young people must "adjust" to a future with fewer entitlements. Straight talk for a change, or a betrayal?  [View news story]
    "entitlements" bull s**t.
    The government took money from the "boomers" all the years they worked and forced them to be in the system with no chance of opt outs.
    If what was paid for is not now forthcoming then refund the money confiscated all those years.
    How about if you paid for medical insurance and when you and your family put in a claim they told you to drop dead? Tell me the difference...............

  • Third Point’s Daniel Loeb again wields his acid pen to criticize White House leadership: "It is increasingly difficult to avoid the conclusion that while Washington burns, Pres. Obama is fiddling away by insisting that the only solution to the nation’s problems - whether unemployment, the debt ceiling or deficit reduction - lies in redistribution of wealth."  [View news story]
    Given the rate at which Obama is destroying America, there soon will be no wealth to redistribute.
    As Margaret Thatcher said, the problem with socialism is that you soon run out of other peoples money to spend.

  • A Congressional report claims millions of gallons of known carcinogens were injected into wells as part of the process to withdraw natural gas from shale deposits. It's the latest health concern over hydrofracking, which has tapped untold reserves of gas, but threatens contamination of water supplies.  [View news story]
    If you think that by giving in, as you call it, to high speed rail the democrats will stop the politicizing of energy policy you are naive. They take, and take and then come back to take some more. The day after any so called agreement is reached with them some group will file lawsuits, with the dems quiet blessing and financial backing, to unravel the part of the deal that has to do with energy.
    Also, who need more rail lines when Amtrack can't even manage what they have now.

  • After thousands of jobs and billions in lost wages since the Gulf of Mexico drilling moratorium, why is Pres. Obama encouraging Brazil to drill for oil while failing to do the same in the U.S.? (video: I, II)  [View news story]
    You all just don't get it.
    Obama came to office apologizing for America .
    His agenda is to be real cool and step by quiet step bring America to its knees just like all the other countries of the African and European continents.
    He said right from the start that America should apologize to the world and just be like all the other folk in the UN.
    Forget all those inconvienient graves of Americans who died on foreign soil. As Reverend Wright said, damn those american bastards.

    Shock of the day is that it is snowing in the northeast in January. Watching the news reports one gets the impression it has never happened before. So much for Al Gore's predictions for the end of snow.

    Any truth that IBM is planning to cut one forth of their workforce, about 100,000 employees?

    Friday morning and all the liberals here can talk about is Bush and Cheney. Pretty pathetic folks that after five years of Obama you can't write about his accomplishments because there none so you still read the playbook that says "bash Bush because we can't talk about anything positive we have done".

    However, did the CBO take into account the hiring by the companies who make robots that will displace the workers doing repetitive jobs? That industry will be growing pretty fast and will be creating more machines to eliminate more and more jobs. There will be fewer and fewer entry level, minimum wage wage jobs. Oh wait, none of the machines will be built in the USA. Scratch that.

    Business owners will not be blind sided by their government the next time and will aggressively seek mechanization to eliminate as many jobs as possible in the months / years to come.

    Nice move liberals. Did it again.

    I will not. He and Hillary and others lied plain and simple. Obviously the upcoming election was more important than Stevens and the other three dead.

    Get off the defense. What difference does it make? A big difference.........

    It is really a sad commentary on the state of the American economy that it is totally dependent on the Fed pumping billions every month to prop up the banks and enable corporations to borrow at almost zero rates.

    Meanwhile, the American people continue to get screwed by the same Fed.

    If it is the law, please explain how it is then legal for the president to grant exemptions and change dates at will. If it is the law, how it be changed almost daily.

    Re Apple--Only in America can the people who wrote the law criticize the people who obey the law. What a farcical side show. Where is George Orwell.

  • The WSJ looks at the contrasting approaches of Virginia and Maryland to tax and spending. The latter's governor, Martin O'Malley, touts his "investment" for its results in education, except that Maryland is losing jobs and rich residents, and often runs out of money. Virginia's unemployment is lower and Governor Bob McDonnell has turned a $6B deficit into a $1B surplus. [View news story]
    When did tax and spend ever have long term benefits?
    The rich move, the poor get additional handouts and the middle class working stiff gets screwed paying the bill.
    Just don't try explaining it a liberal.

  • 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.
