  • SodaStream: The Great Barrier CO2 [View article]
    Very interesting and well-written article--conversational in tone, gently urges curious readers to dig into your other postings for deeper analysis--and the inclusion of photos is something of a novelty on SA.

    It's all doubleplusgood. Long live Dear Leader.

    They help pass the time between part-time shifts, and function as electronic binkies.

  • General Electric: A Comment On A Lifetime Investment [View article]
    The latter part of my comment was intended to differentiate between "emotion" in investing and legitimate ethical considerations. To put it another way, I'm personally more comfortable owning alcohol and tobacco stocks than I am holding a firm that helps overreaching government(s) develop, implement and maintain IT used to spy on and control its citizens. Google, for example. I am all for industrial innovation and since my GE holdings originated several decades ago, this is a conundrum.

    Good dialog rn & DAG. No Immelt fan. I appreciate the dividend but am concerned about what new zaibatsu is going to emerge over the next several years. I'd prefer to hold a company that builds turbines, medical devices, jet engines, even missles and drones, to one that provides information technology and services to the NSA, HHS and the IRS so they can digitize the American populace...well, except for the undocumented among us.

  • Labor Dept: No jobs report tomorrow [View news story]
    I think you're on to something, bbro. And after they clean house there and we've filled up the dumpsters, I'm willing to help push them and their wheelchairs over to a few other agencies, bureaus, and cabinets.

  • Obama: No negotiations while government is shut [View news story]
    That would be "too" not "to" and it's an important distinction. Plus, "those who least deserved" is an easily refuted assertion, though I am feeling the pain and sharing the love of those furloughed shoe-shine employees.

    presumably people on this site know and understand more about the domestic and global economy than Dear Leader, but if you'd care to refute that by presenting evidence that Dear Leader knows anything at all about economics, I'm all ears.

  • Monsanto -2.1% after Q4 loss, buyout news [View news story]
    I share some of your frustration in reading reports on tepid economic conditions that discover "unexpected" continuing negative trends.

    "So what happens here in Washington makes a difference. What happens up on Capitol Hill is going to help determine not only the pace of our growth, but also the quality of jobs, the quality of opportunity, for this generation and future generations."

    Maybe we need Putin to step in where Obama (on behalf of Valerie) fears to tread.

    No, I'm also behind on my IRA and charitable contributions for the year, and don't expect to catch up.

    Unexpectedly? Yeah, who could've seen this coming? Food prices soaring, expensive gasoline, local, state and federal taxes up, record non-participation in the labor market, part-time jobs with no benefits for the shrinking population of people who want to work. I've got a dead dishwasher but won't even consider replacing it until I pay my property taxes.
