  • Will Apple Ditch Google For Yahoo Search? Never Say Never [View article]
    This comment is an unfair exaggeration. The article is very readable. Maybe there is a comma or the word "that" missing, but nobody is perfect.

  • How Much Will Elderly Austerity Affect Consumer Spending And The Economy [View article]
    "You should have saved more..."
    Your arguments are illogical. What good does more savings do when you cannot earn interest on it in this environment? Before you get your blood pressure up with resentment for the elderly, keep in mind that some of us do not have a pension, have minimal social security income and were expecting reasonable growth in health care costs. But along came QE1, 2, 3, .... Obamacare, and irresponsible government spending.

  • 2 Reasons Why The Global Economy Will Slow [View article]
    Why is it assumed inevitable (and acceptable) that a re-negotiation of social security benefits will occur? There is no such talk about lowering the exhorbitant pensions and benefits of government employees and retirees? Compared to social security checks, their benefits provide a far greater source of potential savings. Although it can be argued that SS receipients receive their contributions within a few years, if you consider what that contribution would be worth if it was invested wisely, that argument is not true. How about looking at government workers? How about able-bodied welfare recipients benefits? Did you also realize that many people other than retirees receive checks from Social Security - including children with ADHD, which they will likely continue to receive as adults "incapable of working?" Why are retirees singled out? Isn't it enough that they can't make any money on their savings? Look elsewhere for cuts; look at handouts for which there were no contributions.
