  • Well that didn't last long. The global rally in equities that followed Barack Obama's re-election has petered out quickly as European shares follow U.S. futures into the red. More depressing data out of Europe (I, II) could be a cause, as could the realization that the fiscal cliff is less than eight weeks aways, after which Washington could remain as deadlocked as ever. Dow -0.25%, S&P -0.2%, Nasdaq -0.2%. Euro Stoxx 50 -0.4%. London -0.1%, Paris -0.5%, Frankfurt -0.2%. Crude -1.1%[View news story]
    Well said Blue Ice. I have a question for the liberal tards;" How long do you think this gravy train is going to last?" Over 50 million on food stamps? GDP at 1.5-2% growth. A national debt 10 times the size of the economy. Unemployment the highest of any encumbent president at election. A fiscal policy that has NEVER proved effective in the history of human civilization that history has shown time and time again to lead to only one outcome. How long? Thought:
    What if we split the country in two? The Conservatives choose one side, and the Liberals take the other. How long would it take for some reformed liberals to tunnel under the wall that kept them out of the conservative side? LOL!

    The idea being, which side would businesses choose to oper
    ate in? Where would the jobs be created? Where would decency be a way of life? Where would God be honored?

    Great thoughts to ponder.

    Very similar to the public school debate: Why is the public school system afraid of vouchers? They're afraid because they know Americans would choose high-performing private schools for their children over the under-performing public institutions.

    Why is that?

    We see the answer to that every time the liberals have government take over something from the private sector.

  • "We can't just drill our way to lower gas prices when we consume 20% of the world's oil," President Obama says during his weekly address. Obama took the opportunity to advocate for his "all of the above" strategy, that relies less on foreign fossil fuels, and more on: "solar, wind, natural gas, biofuels, and more."  [View news story]
    Terry,you are correct. Nobama will be re elected just on the simple fact that the american people are stupid. Just a simple fact, we were 10t in the hole when bush left office. Now after only 3 years nobama has increased it to over 15t. It took almost 30 years for us to get to 10t in the hole.nobamas policies will take us to only 1 place. None of us will like it. History proves it all the way back to 400 bc. Do us all a favor and keep your progressive/communist philosophy to yourself.

  • The Implications of a Downgraded U.S. [View article]
    WELL SAID GreenRiver! The entitlement generation is here to stay and I've been saying for a few years now that "there's no way anyone will sacrifice their freebies". After working in a boarding school for 2 years even our teenagers are like that. Our course is set and there's no avoiding what's coming.

  • The Gold Bubble That Just Won't Pop [View article]
    It has been interesting watching how breaking news affects commodities with gold being no exception. Quick spikes and falls. But, with gold and silver breaking through new highs over the years you have to ask yourself; have the fundamentals changed in the midst of it all? NO! Therefore gold and silver will continue the upward trend. I tend to listen to the folks who are consistently forecasting with incredible and sometimes scary accuracy. Time to take our heads out of the sand and wake up. See you there pmguru! $2000+
