  • Greece passes reforms but weakens coalition [View news story]
    Meanwhile, the Greek border is completely open. Isn't that also considered the EU border? Why aren't the immigrants being stopped and held in Greece?

    Fret not, the TPP is coming to save these IT corporations. It allows even more foreign workers into the US and it allows them to be paid foreign based salaries right here in the US. Those Americans with jobs in the fast growing IT sector can kiss their careers goodbye...

  • Wall Street/Buffett relationship turns testy [View news story]
    In 1987, Buffett famously stated, "I'll tell you why I like the cigarette business. It costs a penny to make. Sell it for a dollar. It's addictive. And there's fantastic brand loyalty." That's all you need to understand Buffet's idea of the perfect investment.

  • Major fast-food restaurant strikes planned for today [View news story]
    Instead of protesting, perhaps they should instead be asking the question, why are so many people and families so dependent on entry-level, minimum wage jobs? The dems spent 7 years scrutinizing the Keystone, yet the much larger and infinitely more complex TPP requires a fast track? And it must be keep secret? How many good paying jobs have gone overseas already? And now, the TPP will greatly expand the number of legal foreign workers here in the US. The TPP allows foreign companies operating in the US to bring them in legally, and then pay them the same wage they would receive in their home country. Not wages based on a competitive US level. Think about it.

    Seven years to scrutinize the Keystone yet the TPP must be on a fast track and must be kept secret? Hypocrisy at it's worse.

  • Train derails in Wisconsin in second incident this weekend, spills oil [View news story]
    You realize of course that there are already hundreds of thousands of miles of petroleum pipelines already in existence under your feet as we speak? You realize that gasoline at the your local pump doesn't just appear there magically? That it takes exploration, drilling, shipping, port transfers, pipelines, refining complexes, transporting, local trucking to your neighborhood? Maybe you're thinking fine, but not in my backyard, lol?

  • Exxon fights accusations it knew about climate change risks for decades [View news story]
    What climate change advocates refuse to acknowledge is that population control is the only real solution. While the rate of increase has slowed down a bit, the world population is still doubling every fifty years or so. That growth will swamp out any technical improvements we can make towards reduced emissions, etc. And if China is any example, these third world countries are going prioritize their own economic growth and raising their standard of living above concerns about climate change.

  • Frontier filing argues against 10-Mbps minimum in FCC's Lifeline plan [View news story]
    Perhaps the FCC should concentrate on getting these providers to run at least 1/2 their advertised bandwidth. That's about what I'm getting... on a good day.

  • Core CPI gains a fast 0.2% in September [View news story]
    Real estate tax is always the go-to tax for increased local spending. Why? Because it's considered discretionary. You don't need to own real estate.
