    Congress is do-nothing because they know Fed keeps the heroin flowing.

    Does anyone realize how bizarre the simultaneous stock and bond market rallies are?

  • 'The U.S. Is Broke' [View article]
    Governments never sell assets. Look at the saga in Greece.

    Military has little value. Ask the USSR and the fields of rusting tanks, helicopters, and jets. Still went broke.

    Seems like China is carrying our baggage since they, you know, actually had the money to lend us.

    What percentage of the total budget will Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc be in 5, 10, 20 years?

    Isn't that a better measure than % of GDP which was intentionally chosen by you to lowball the problem?

    If 75% of your budget is Social Programs, you've got a big problem on your hands.

    Countries that attempt to print away their debts fail 100% of the time. I challenge anyone to find a working example.

    Exactly. How and when a debt panic hits is not predictable.

    The "we aren't broke yet" articles can be summarized as "The credit card hasn't been declined yet. So that means it never will be."

    And 5% really isn't even that high. Believe 6% is the long term 10yr average.

    Truly baffling that people believe creditors will accept Monopoly Money indefinitely.

    No one in 2000+ years of human history has managed to print their way to prosperity.

    As far as "tell the bond market", Greece was able to borrow at 3% at one point also.

  • The REIT Dividend Delusion [View article]
    You can buy them just like you would a stock. Each brokerage seems to have slightly different nomenclature for the different series of an issuer.

    You can also buy ETFs or my personal favorite, closed end funds which often sell at discounts.

    You are going to buy a preferred at almost $1.50 over par that is callable on 02/15/2017?

    Are you out of your mind?

  • Intel: Time For Some New Management [View article]
    David Moloney's comment sums it up.

    I would generalize a bit more and say they failed in "low power" overall. Completely neglected low power devices, even laptops, for years.

    Only recently have thin and light laptops become possible because Intel got around to it.

    Intel's fate has been a very long time coming. I was talking about these problems at least 10 years ago.
