  • Wall Street Breakfast: Markets On Edge Before Yellen Round Two [View article]
    That's a totally stupid comment. You can't provide one because you are lazy or can't find one. How about that.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Net Neutrality To Sweep The Nation? [View article]
    And RIQ - how many 'other end of the spectrum' examples can anyone give it the insane, stupid, ridiculous things that our favorite government has offered up. Seems like the have fallen into the trap of 'if you're not doing something to create more government - you are not earning your pay.

    From the conservative's point of view, Boehner is a limp moron puppet of the elite power establishment.

    "The government, now cured of Cheney's "deficits don't matter" attitude, are following Hoover era boom and bust economics, and are unwilling to spend and prime the economic pump lest they have deficits."

    Care to cite any stats on deficits that were run between 2008 and 2014?


    Ummm....let's see, as I look forward to retirement and supporting myself and family for the next 25 years...I suspect I will need a little money to live on other than my generous Social Security. That's why I have saved and lived on less than I make for the last 25 years.

    Savings is the source of capital formation. It is what drives development. Without savings there would be no lending. At least that's the way it used to work. Today I can borrow on my credit card and there is ZERO savings behind it.

    Perhaps our economy is throttled by debt instead of savings.

    Wonder that the economy would be like today without the fiscal deficits we have run in the last 7 years.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greek Bailout Extension Clears German Hurdle [View article]
    What was that old movie where Arnold played the Cyborg. In it they got to a point where the "net" became self aware and self actualizing. This is the same thing Killer454 says above. The bureaucrats are now self aware and self actualizing. They seem to be able to do what they want and no one in C-O-N-gress or the JUST(n)ice Department seems to have to guts to smash their heads against a wall and fire about 20,000 of them.

    Oil Over Supply

    "Within around two months, [onshore storage will] be completely exhausted," Ivan Szapakowski, a commodity strategist at Citigroup, told CNBC last week. "The only remaining storage globally will then be floating storage, tankers."

    Many predicting continuing excess and lower prices. I am still staying away from oil - except at the gas station once a week.

    MWinMD - certainly depends on whether you think any amount of spending can have an impact on "climate change"?

    RIQ - Not sure I understand. The funds I deposit in the CU are the basis for multiple times that in loans to people who want to buy cars or houses, etc. I am actually "stimulating" the economy.

    How much deficit spending does it take to "stimulate" an economy? Seems like that has been ongoing for eternity.

    Anyone following Buffett on his German company buying spree?

    Also, just rolled over CD in local Credit Union at 2.3% for 60 months. How's that compare to your neighborhood?

  • China's Monumental Debt Trap - Why It Will Rock The Global Economy [View article]
    As of December 2014, china held $1.244 Trillion of US debt. Howsabout we just have the Treasury print up $1.244 trillion of hundred $ bills and send it over to them on a ship - or two or three or however many it will take. I think we could do the same with recipients of Social Security payments every month as well. Just pay with printed money. Think about it before you respond.

    Bob123 and RIQ - I am sure you are smart enough to convey the points of the "link" in some way that suggest there is any resemblance to what would be commonly accepted teachings of "the big JC".

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Help For The Economy From Housing? [View article]
    Bud H. Rather than just throw a grenade, why do you say "billionaires are substantially undertaxed". Please kindly tell us why you think so and what you think should be done, if anything about it?

    Bob123 - seriously. I won't even give your link a look considering that attached to it is the name of Al Franken. If you have something substantive to say about the issue, then go ahead - let's hear your thoughts.
