    Egg,
    I think we both need to order more tin foil hats from HTL. ;-)
    I just don't see how they get out without getting hurt after the election when the market corrects profoundly (unless they are using money from the Fed to begin with). HTL, double that order please.

  • Don't Expect New Highs In Gold This Year [View article]
    From what I understand CEF gets taxed at a high rate in the US unless held for 2 years. GLD makes a good short term trading vehicle.

    BW,
    Good work. I still see some that may not be answered for reasons of confidentiality, but very good over all.

    As an aside, the healthcare bill is 2700 pages long.

    HI TB,
    From what I understand about mandatory car insurance is that; it is a State issue, driving is a privilege (you can choose not to use this privilege). If this healthcare is supported by the SC I am expecting mandatory life insurance as well (nobody makes it out of this life alive).

  • Electric Drive - Still Crazy After Five More Years [View article]
    SM,
    My apologies, I know nothing of chemistry (I have a daughter that is a chemist). I was a mechanic in the 1980s and 1990s when our local water district started producing methanol for use in the district vehicles. All I know is what we were told and what the effects were on mechanics and vehicles and with the waste oil.

    Your missing the point of methanol, it is the methane that causes the problem, not the alcohol. You have to realize that normally engine oil is recycled to one form or another. There are differing grades of haz- mat. Methanol requires more frequent oil changes b/c of the corrosiveness of methane and all ICE engines have blow by even when new.

  • "We are finding that homebuyers are no longer expecting home prices to decline further, which is creating some sense of urgency to buy now," says KB Home (KBH) CEO Jeff Mezger. A key reason for the Q1 miss is a "spike" in cancellation rates from customers unable to get mortgages, even those already with full loan approval letters. (h/t Joe Weisenthal)  [View news story]
    Nope, but they are heavily remodeled. Even have indoor plumbing and electricity.

    Does that include the outhouse and well pump?

    WD,
    Maintenance costs go way up when using methanol.
    It is very toxic and corrosive. A mechanic working on a methanol vehicle has to wear gloves and a mask and the oil and other waste products have to be disposed of differently.

    I remember a short blurb last week or the week before where the Israel central bank was going invest in US stocks, anybody else remember that? If that is happening do you think that is the only CB doing this. Just a thought at back door QE.

    HTL,
    I don't know for sure that there is a shortage of drivers, I do know that I am constantly getting emails to go to work as a driver. Intermodal is much cheaper than long haul truck delivery, however shipping by rail can take up to a week longer cross country.
