  • A Senate subcommittee report about the subprime implosion is expected to release emails and other documents that could expose Wall St. firms to more litigation. CDOs, Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS) and Deutsche Bank (DB) are expected to feature prominently, sources say. (previous)  [View news story]
    Must be some strange alignment of the planets.....Monngie agrees with you. No, I haven't taken my meds so there must be something wrong with all of us eh? Hell, somebody ought to go to jail. Trouble is I don't think they have enough plush accommodations to incarcerate them all.

  • Southwest Airlines (LUV) grounds 81 planes from its Boeing (BA) 737 fleet after a three-foot hole opened up in the fuselage of one of its aircraft today, forcing an emergency landing. Southwest and Boeing say they're trying to determine the cause.  [View news story]
    Your absolutely right. In your circles they call them issues.......in mine they call them facts.

    You obviously can't see the obvious. I was merely stating that funding for the FAA has been inadequate for years. If you had any understanding of how antiquated our air traffic control system is you wouldn't get on an airplane. To say that it hasn't been cut, does not, in any way, suggest it's adequate. Why is it every time I criticize conservatives you suggest I take some mind altering drug? Could it be that your already medicated and that's why you can't understand my point of view. Anyone that knows anything about the history of the aviation industry in this country knows that the entire industry started a "nosedive" when it was deregulated.

    Perhaps the union price was right and this would not have happened if qualified Union mechanics had been on the job. How much are a 737 load of people worth anyhow???????

    More than outsourced maintenance I'll bet........especially if your on the airplane.......YA THINK???

    Let's cut funding for the FAA so there will be even less oversight of maintenance and all the other safety issues that can't be addressed because the funding isn't sufficient now. Let's just cut funding for the FAA.......the government has no business regulating safety in the airline industry or anywhere else for that manner.

    Ain't I just a good little conservative!!!???

  • Let them eat iPad! When NY Fed's Bill Dudley was pressed by a working-class audience about how he can view inflation as low when grocery prices keep rising, his response: "You can buy an iPad2 that costs the same as an iPad1, that’s twice as powerful." Grumbling ensued, as Dudley is stunned to learn that iPads are more popular at Fed offices than on the streets of Queens.  [View news story]
    Tell a firefighter he or she is a parasite while your standing back watching your house burn with you wife and kids inside. Tell the police they're parasites when they get the arsonist that started the fire. Tell the teacher he or she is a parasite when your kid is walking up to get his college diploma. You need to go see the wizard because you don't have a brain and getting your offspring up that aisle for that diploma is going to be a real challenge for them teachers. They will probably have to insist on a raise.

  • Alice in EVLand: Cracks in the Looking Glass [View article]
    Well, I have been arguing with you about technology here quite a bit. But, your point is very well taken. Timing is everything and being a technology visionary will get you into trouble on the investment side if the wave is ready to ride. I think the EV wave is just about ready, but, it might be a little premature to get on it. I don't think its that far off though.

    So if government develops methods of extracting oil from tar sands, for instance, for the purpose of fueling the military and the private sector benefits, that just serendipity. No one in the government who developed GPS or any of the other technologies I cited for military reasons even had an inkling that it could benefit the private sector. These are all things government should be doing. And they have a long track record of success. I want to know what the catastrophic failures are, because you haven't cited any and I've cited several successes. Just nebulous allusions to catastrophic failures. I will admit the ethanol program is misguided, but, although I think it is misguided I wouldn't classify it as catastrophic........yet.

  • Coal is the fastest growing fuel in the world," proclaims Peabody Energy's (BTU +2.5%) Greg Boyce, which shouldn't upset anyone because coal is a “catalyst for growth” that brings electricity to the world's impoverished people. Boyce claims a U.S. commitment to clean coal power plant construction could generate 6M jobs and avoid the emission of 440M tons of CO2.  [View news story]
    Electric cars don't have to use dirty coal, if we use our brains (read think progressively). It's more of a blight on this planet and our bodies now than it was three centuries ago.

    It's not inexpensive if you look at the hidden costs. Everything you said about coal can be said for NG without the environmental and human impacts

    NG can and is used to generate electricity. We have a gazillion year supply. While CO2 is a byproduct of combustion it is a lot less than coal, and it is much much cleaner than coal in every other respect. I'm not saying do away with coal all together, but, we should reduce it significantly. It's also heavily subsidized. If I had my druthers (whatever that is) I rather subsidize the future than the past. Clean coal is a myth (read lie) and won't happen for many many years.

    The issue with clean coal is there is no clean coal. It's a myth and no one has or is currently using technology that will do it. It's going to be years before it happens.....maybe years and years and years.

    Breathing clean air is anathema to the Right's need to breath clean air. Stopping coal fired power plants would stop the spread of lead in the atmosphere that's causing their brain damage.

  • Obama and the Democrats are "aiding and abetting" Republicans in promoting "wrongheaded and destructive" notions about the deficit, Paul Krugman writes. In dealing with America's problems, we are saddled with "a political culture in which one side sneers at knowledge and exalts ignorance, while the other side hunkers down and pretends to halfway agree."  [View news story]
    Geez, I think I agree with you too. Republicans sure do exalt ignorance. You really have to be clear here at SA.....these folks might take you the wrong way!
