  • BBC Says Merkel Says Greece Will Default [View article]
    Look, I never said a word about CA problems. You brought up the issues in Texas. You don't live here, why do you give a damn?

    Sure, Texas has idiot, deeply embedded bureaucrats just like any state. Let me assure you, I deal with these people on a daily basis. I pull my hair out.

    We had a budget deficit, we dealt with it, it is history.

    The deficit in CA is still daily news. You have not dealt with it.

    You need to tend to your problems in CA. We will tend to Texas.

  • BBC Says Merkel Says Greece Will Default [View article]
    In Texas, our bureaucrats rode the wave from 2001 through 2008 by raising expenditures dramatically, just like every other state. When the bottom fell out in 2009 it became obvious that the level of expenditures had to decline. The State of Texas must balance it's budget by constitutional edict.

    State spending did decline. But my observation as to our local entities such as the school district and college district is that they adapted quickly without any serious reduction in services.

    If you think there are no state services in Texas, you are clueless. There is a state office on every corner. Medicade for the poor folks is one third of the entire state budget

    Our unemployment rate, tax rate, job creation rate and every other rate that you can think of is superior to CA.

    So, Sir, you are confused, the only excrement problem is in your own mind.

  • The 13% GDP Gap [View article]
    The Tea Party now runs Minnesota? I always liked visiting Minnesota. If it is true that the liberals have been run off I might consider moving up there.

    Especially if global warming shortens up Winter.

  • Ford to Triple EcoBoost Vehicle Production Capacity in 2012 [View article]
    I wonder who builds the turbochargers for all these EcoBoost engines. They must be working double shifts.

    Really, Jake, if you do not know the difference between high gravity Bakken shale oil crude and oil sand bitumen you have no business commenting on this professional site.

    Jake is a completely clueless nonscientist. And he can't spell either. Where do these mental giants come from?

  • The Definitive Ford Bull Case [View article]
    Yes it is my money.

    If becoming emotional for an American icon, which I have followed since sweet 16 is poor financial planning, I think I will plan poorly.

    I bet on F because I believe in F.

    Pretty long on F.

  • Who Wants To Kill The Electric Car? [View article]
    I sold crude oil in December, 1998 for $7.60/bbl, well under the cost of production.

    Gasoline at that time was $.69/gal in Tulsa, OK.

    The funny thing is lots of people think that those were the good old days. The truth is, those days SUCKED!

    Hate to add to your online abuse here, but the fact is the big Pontiac motor was the 455.

    Plus, if you were buying Ethyl for 17 cents you must be old as the hills. You need to get a new picture.

  • Why Gold-Related Investments Are Slowly Becoming Worthless [View article]
    You said "The US dollar has be around since 1792. That's 220 years."

    From 1792 until 1935 (143 years) the U.S.D. was worth .77344 oz of silver (m/l). Genuine hard currency.

    For the last 77 years the government has been playing games with the dollar to the detriment of it's value. Sure, it's hard to pay with PayPal or a credit card with hard currency, but the debasing is so much easier with paper.

  • Solar Rally Halted On German Subsidy Cuts [View article]
    I guess you know that 25,000 years ago MSL was 300 feet lower than it is now. When the ice caps started melting and MSL started rising, the Neanderthals had to haul ass to higher ground. I don't think the hominids had much to do with that cycle of global warming. And let me assure you, no ten minute politician will dictate the next cycle.

  • The Bakken Oilfield: TransCanada Keystone XL Project May Bypass Federal Review [View article]
    You better take a look at the production incline curve for the Bakken in North Dakota. It looks like the Space Shuttle on launch. Another couple years of this and there won't be enough trains in the U.S. to handle all that crude.

    You all have beat this poor horse to death, with a lot of personal opinions.

    Here is the real world, 10 year term.

    Most will continue to burn $100/bbl crude as gasoline with improving mpg ratings.

    A few true believers will embrace Volt type hybrids as their primary vehicle.

    A fair number will embrace pure EV cars for their commuting in the city.

    More will love high MPG diesel cars that are very frugal.

    Some daring types will go for NatGas vehicles since gas is very cheap now.

    The point here is that there is room for all these new fuels and the truth is that the market will accommodate them all. Gasoline will no longer be the sole available fuel. The fact that pure gasoline vehicles will ultimately decline due to the inevitable peak in oil production is set in stone. The timing is not so clear. We should be happy that alternatives are being tested and refined, and when needed, will be available.

    My approach is more conservative. I own a herd of cattle (F) and one prize stud bull (TSLA).

  • Total: Why I Am Still Bullish On This 5% Yielder [View article]
    Right. TOT pays dividends in euros. The euro/dollar ratio trend looks bad for the forward yield.
