  • Why This Rally Is Unsustainable [View article]
    Excellent article all the way through. Enjoyed all the digressions.

    This article nicely meshes with what I have been reading from Tyler Durden's excellent posts all last month.

  • Book Review: 'The Monster: How a Gang of Predatory Lenders and Wall Street Bankers Fleeced America - and Spawned a Global Crisis' [View article]

    We have a TV station and website for people of your narrow minded persuasion: FOXnews/

    Its a beautiful things. Fact are not important. Anything that tugs at you at a guttural level is provided, no matter how foolish it appears (Hi Bill, Hi Glenn). They even make you feel at home by providing you with talking-points so you can repeat the same nonsense they do.

    Check it out.

    Then you can spend all your time with fellow narrow-minded types and you won't have to deal with people like myself who use words and phrases like analysis and logical conclusions, and who want to solve problems independent of a foolish set of talking points.

  • John Hussman: Recession Warning [View article]
    Why are you repeating material from the Bush administration?

    " Concerns abound among businesses and consumers that the current administration will strip mine the nations wealth and channel it to special interests. "

    Oh, that's right, the Bush administration did just this but without anyone being concerned enough to speak up. Got it now.

  • What’s Really Behind QE2? [View article]
    What else can be done as long as the uber-conservatives that run the Republican party are not interested in governance but are only interested in "getting what they want" without compromise?

  • What Can the U.S. Learn From Germany's Falling Unemployment? [View article]
    Mr. Galt probably loved all the useless "financial innovations" that contributed to the mess we're in......but try to innovate our way out of the mess as Mark indicates Germany has done.... well no siree bucky......mental giants like Bill Snor-Reilly and Rush Dim-bulb might be critical......

    Go back to your Fox News foxhole... with the rest of the gutless tea-baggers......

    Nice work Mark.

  • Apple’s Magic Trackpad Signals End of Mouse Era [View article]
    I will never give up my tracker ball!

    Human beings are separated from the apes by the disposable digit we lovingly call the thumb.

    I will continue to zip around my computer screen using my thumb operated tracker ball until they tear it from cold, dead hand!!!!!!

  • More on White House's Strong-Arming of Chrysler Hedge Fund Hold Outs [View article]
    I agree this one has to be taken with a grain of salt.

    I use to enjoy Beckmann back when he did sports play-by-play, and even when he started in mid-morning radio. But now he is just a biased warm-up act for Rush. So it is no surprise to me he puts on people who might sensationalize a story, or give a completely biased perspective of what might have happened.

    Don't see this one as a major story.

    But keep up the good work just the same Tyler.

  • Rick Santelli Speaks for the Silent Majority [View article]
    Great the numb-nuts who couldn't get enough of Bush's lax regulation, and thus helped create this mess, are pissed off that we aren't (trying) to solve the problem with the only trick in their arsenal - tax cuts!!!

    Santelli is great for what he knows, but solving broad problems ain't one of them.

  • Ron Paul's ongoing field day notwithstanding, it's time to stop emotional Fed-bashing, Darrell Delamaide writes. Sure, Greenspan turned out to be "an idol with feet of clay," but with monetary policy so important, it's a crucial time to focus criticism on facts and not ideology (and get the personnel vacancies filled).  [View news story]
    Stop the bashing? From the Paul family?

    You can't stop people who live to whine about things.

    The Paul's take reasonable ideas to the extreme and end up looking like fools and wasting people's time.

    P.S. As always, negative feedback from Tea-baggers are counted as postives in my book-keeping method. (BAG-ONNNNNNNNN!!)

  • David Rosenberg on Where to Invest [View article]
    This would be the David Rosenberg who earlier in the year forecast negative GDP for the second half of the year?

    Like all of us he is not perfect.

    Grain of salt, people, grain of salt.

  • Why We're Headed for a Collapse [View article]
    I am for implementing the Deficit Reductions Panels recommendations "lock, stock and barrel". The only way to solve the problem is through shared sacrifice.

    I am also with David Stockman that the Bush Taxes cuts should have been completely abolished in the name of deficit reduction.

    Suck it up people and quit whining about taxes.

    Keep the taxes, cut the budget and get the deficit under control.

    Shared sacrifice is the only way to get us back on track.
