    Thank you Gemstones. I hope we are right. It's been a wild ride this week, but a good one, so far.

    No idea what Caitlyn's feelings are, but I started building a position today. I believe CLMT is/will be a victim of tax loss selling.

  • Waddell & Reed Financial beats by $0.02, beats on revenue [View news story]
    This may help explain it. They lost some management, and had some large outflows. At a glance to me, it looks like a buy. http://yhoo.it/1HHoFPB

  • Waddell & Reed Should Bottom Soon [View article]
    Who knows what the future holds, but your analysis appears to have been spot on, as WDR did dip below $45, and is now about 10% over that.

    Amen, Tony. Seventy two virgins. What about experienced women. These guys will go their whole afterlives without a good blowjob or three fingers up the... I'm going to have to self censor at this point. You get the idea.

    Miriam, the Canadians have him figured out. At least he's not asking $500M to aid Mexican drug dealers, but that could be for next week.

    Our only hope now is that global warming is real, the polar ice caps melt and wash a bunch of CanUKs across the border, changing the course of electoral politics forever.

    I'd put it in the bad news column, Rich. So much for free markets.

    Aid for Syrian head choppers. Great. Has our policy in the middle east now gone from the Democracy Project to encouraging bloody extremism, and why didn't Obama know about the ISIS movement until he read about it in the paper?

  • Buckle Up! The New Bear Market Has Begun [View article]
    Yeah. Straight guys like Aaron Schock, white guys like Tim Scott, ... Holy cow, man. What sort of comic books you read, I don't know, but if you invest like you study politics, you must be flat broke.

    Bob123, The cost in terms of lives and dollars would not have been so high if Democrats, after supporting the war, had not provided comfort to Al Queda. Heck, in Nam, after the Tet offensive, Ho Chi was ready to hang it up, except that Dems started screaming, and that gave him hope. A great country such as the US can face any external enemy, but it cannot survive its traitors from within.

  • Caterpillar under fire with engine lawsuits [View news story]
    I'm not too surprised. Their custom cast control engine control modules add expense with no benefit compared to the extruded aluminum housings of their competitors, and I'm sure there are other no-value-added expenses that a wise engineer could have removed if only he were given the freedom to do so. Their emissions group is primarily temporary help with no real long term connection to the company. I'm sure they saved a lot of money on manpower doing things that way, but look what it cost.

    Bob123, I have no idea what you are talking about, and I wonder if you do either.

    The term "Neocon" describes a liberal. A Neocon is a progressive that has become squeamish about something in the progressive agenda, and does not support it, and as such is a "new conservative", or a "Neocon".

    The talking points memo doesn't cover things like this.

    ...nor have the foresight to know what that "instability" would look like, nor have the ability to shape that instability into something better. Maybe we could have, if only we had the fortitude, and didn't have traitors within our ranks backstabbing the effort.

    I'm not sure why some people want to score political points by blaming Bush for Iraq. Need I remind everyone that Iraq had bipartisan support, and Democrats even demanded a vote so they could be on record. Let's not rewrite the history books.

    Here are some quotes that have been forgotten by the intellectually dishonest:

    "Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face." --Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983." --Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." Letter to President Clinton, signed by: -- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process." -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    I've got more.

    Ah, yes. Obama screws up. Blame Bush. It's OK. He's a strong man. His shoulders can handle the weight the current Present can't.
