  • Gun shares again in focus following latest mass shooting [View news story]
    The murderer had no apparent connection to the crime scene, and had just recently moved to the area.

    One can only assume he selected the location based upon the fact it was a "gun free zone".

    Don't forget the Charleston SC shootings. Add the United States to the list of world locations where Christians are murdered for their faith. It will only get worse for believers as evil gets emboldened here.

  • Congress approves stop-gap budget measure, averts shutdown [View news story]
    Congress continues to defer more and more of their Constitutional responsibility to the Executive branch. We have developed in the last half century what our Founding Fathers warned about - an Imperial Presidency.

    If they do not want to use the power of the purse, and will not prosecute anyone, why do they even bother to show up to work?

  • Congress moves to avoid government shutdown this week [View news story]
    Planned Parenthood is a Baby chop shop. Chop them up, and sell the parts.

    The fresher, the better, for their "clients", and even more dollars if they are still alive when it is done.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Yellen Speech Drives Market Rebound [View article]
    The biggest threat to the well-being of the majority of citizens is the ruling class that is ensconced in Washington D.C. It is not ISIS, AL-Quada, etc.

    For now, they have bought off enough of the citizenry with a monthly check paid for by printing money, but when that ends, all bets are off.

    This country is done in the sense of the basic values that made it different - they are never coming back. The United States has become just another secular semi-socialist entity where the ruling class (via The State) makes nearly all decisions, directly or indirectly, for every citizen. In effect, the State has decided to take the place of parents, family, God, etc. in the lives of as many people as possible.

    It was good while it lasted, but 9/11 and the corresponding rise of the Police State, and the government bailouts in 2008, were the final nails. Check out the security for Pope Francis vs. Pope John Paul II in 1979, and tell me things are the same.

    All that is left is rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic while we wait for enough water to finally sink it.

  • Panera Bread: Because Real Food Is Better Than The McGriddle [View article]
    As a guy, I always thought Panera was kind of a woman's restaurant, fair or unfair.

    I do agree their food is better quality, but I do not go out for breakfast, so this is an interesting article.

  • Volkswagen issues profit warning, sets aside €6.5B [View news story]
    If I owned a TDI, why take it in to get "fixed"? I'm sure it would only make it run worse, and get lower fuel economy.

    I think their accrual for service expenses is too high, though the Obama regime will try to extort as much cash as possible out of them.

    I actually do own a Volkswagen, sort of. The only Canadian built model that is really not a Volkswagen, but 17 inch wheels lets you upgrade to dual piston brakes, and the low resale value made it the cheapest to buy.

  • GE to move ~500 turbine jobs overseas due to Ex-Im bank closure [View news story]
    Tariff their turbines they bring into the U.S. from France. If the French taxpayers want to be extorted by G.E., that is there choice.

    Oh wait, GE only takes government money - they don't actually pay anything to support it (unless you count "campaign contributions")

    Of course our ruling class has given away all of our national sovereignty to international organizations thru trade deals, treaties, etc. It is almost like the cabal in D.C. work for large multinational corporations or something, and the country is just the name on their paycheck.

  • McDonald's to transition to cage-free eggs [View news story]
    Still doesn't solve their basic problem - low quality food that is overpriced for the level of "service" you get from McDonalds.

    I worked at McDonalds for two years in the early 80's - the crap they sell now would never had flown then, but they didn't have a menu the size of "War and Peace" like they do now, nor was 75% of employees recently sneaked into the country, on work-release, welfare to work, etc.

    Cage-free eggs might be good for chickens, but it will make no difference on increasing sales or profits.

  • McDonald's to transition to cage-free eggs [View news story]
    Caged eggs for $2 a dozen, or cage free for $3.50 a dozen. Which would most people buy?

    So....., now that their blood has been spilled, how does SRV look at $3.10 a share? They still own investments in solid companies.

  • Natural gas inventory builds more than expected [View news story]
    I scalped my shares of UGAZ. Bought in before report and sold after - made 3%, but better than losing 3%.

  • Video Music Awards shed half-million viewers from last year [View news story]
    Are there morons that actually let their kids tune in to that?

    We ditched cable as soon as our oldest child figured out there was a television in the house. I also have saved tons of time in my life since I no longer watch much sports.

    Win/win for everyone in the family.
