Okay we got out of the week without too much damage from the godless, mindless, spineless, spandex donning, bottom-feeding doom and gloom crowd. So far, so good.
Monday will be a decision day. Tuesday may be too late as GS announces before the open. INTC after the close.
So, if you want to play either of those, then Monday before the close is your deadline.
When the smoke clears, Wednesday morning I expect to see APOL off to the races and all of tech higher.
So, jellyfish investors (bears and shorts for anyone who isn't paying attention), I call and I raise. What you got?
1st, Waldo..pin yourself an extra obama hopium pin on your chest, which will get you an extra helping of hummus at the local grocer...for being so positive and optimistic...
2nd, I am a trader and call it as I see it. Unlike you, I play the market by what it is doing, not what I want it to do. I trade minute to minute and hour to hour...your long winding waxing of any stocks bright fundamentals is meaningless...I operate out of the premiss that somebody always knows more than me (the average trader).
3rd with that said, I see next week getting another nice bounce, which I will ride long and set up for my next shorts.
See just because I don't ride Obama's jock, does not mean I can't play the market long...I could care less who is in charge (well that is not totally accurate) but as far as I have any control, I just want to trade.
So go ahead and wax poetic with your pelosi supporting/wine sipping California crowd...
"So go ahead and wax poetic with your pelosi supporting/wine sipping California crowd..."
Yes, and you continue with your support for the idiots who brought us the worst economic events in 70 years.
Your team took the field full of testosterone and bravado and then lost the game by 178-0 and here you are still talking smack. Most people would have the sense to just shut up after such a humiliation. Or at least to stop with the really stupid "wine sipping California crowd" type remarks. You got your asses kicked on the field. On the field. What you say in the bar now just makes you look like more a simpering idiot.
There hasn't been a Republican president in 25 years who didn't create the largest budget deficits in the history of the world by the time they left office. Republicans used to stand for solid financial management. But that was in the time of what? Eisenhower? Now they stand for mouthy arrogance (you have this down), resigning when the going gets tough (Palin) and running off to Argentina to see the girlfriend.
So, yes - I support the idea of electing smart people as opposed to non-performing ideologues. We can't afford another financial/economic train wreck.
Your team screwed the pooch. So sit on the bench and shut up at least until the new team has had a reasonable period of time in which to fix their screw-ups...
"In the end, it is about philosophy I guess."
No, it's not. It's about performance and financial restraint. Republican presidents believed as you that it is about philosophy. They were ideologues and thought the "right" ideas trumped any need for good financial management. All recent Republican administrations have been financial disasters for the American people.
Greenspan in his book commented that Bush disregarded the need for financial restraint because of his need to fulfill his campaign promises. So, we got huge tax cuts and a hugely expensive war and an economic disaster as one Republican president after the other gutted the US Treasury.
"The feel good socialism thing always fails"
Yes, that Social Security has been a real disaster, hasn't it? Maybe you should opt out...
You really are an idiot...Walli what do people do with new wealth? CMon what do they do? You have no clue.
Help me out, how much of our money should we give to the government? Help me out with some of the key programs that need funding?
What are unions walli, do they promote freedom and excellence? Not a chance..that is the pychology you want for the whole country...that is so long as you are on top of the food chain...another pussy who can not compete and needs a herd of sheep to make him think he is smart....
Dumh, that wasn't the Democratic Party that was telling you that you would never amount to anything - that was your mother.
"Yep rich get richer and poor poorer because libs keep all the sheep on the mental midget plantation."
Bullshit. It was the Republican tax cuts for the rich...
"where did any democrat balance a budget? Help me out?"
Kennedy, LBJ, Carter, Clinton.
Democrats know how to balance budgets. Republicans don't. It's all on the chart, dumh. You can read a chart, right?
We're fixing the mess Bush left us.
And Reagan, and Bush again.
When Republicans start balancing budgets, Democrats will be able to stop fixing their messes.
Hint: Stop with the stupid tax cuts will fix everything mentality. There hasn't been a Republican administration in recent history in which the rich didn't get richer and the poor poorer. The rich never get tired of squeezing the middle class. The Republican Party is the party of rich white people. And therein lies the problem of ever winning the White House again.
"So you are ok with people paying no taxes?"
No, Dumh - I'm not a member of the mindless tax cut group. That is I'm not a Republican.
The people who pay no taxes are either the really poor or the really rich. I have no problem with the really poor not paying taxes. Do I need to explain to you why the really poor can't pay taxes?
I see no reason to over-burden the middle class just so the rich can have some extra spending money. America was based on the idea of a strong middle class - NOT the idea of the rich constantly getting richer. Under Republicans the rich constantly get richer. But it's never enough. There is always a new round of requests for tax cuts, primarily for the rich.
You're not even rich, Dumh. You're just a wannabe. Just one more confused person (like Joe the Plumber) who thinks the Republicans represent your interests when they really don't.
I would welcome you resisting my comments with facts, analysis or logic. Instead I get Fox News channel chanting and name calling. The only thing you are bitch-slapping is your image as an able debater...
Yes, let's focus especially on 2000-2006 when the Republican President and Congress were creating mountains of red ink.
As far as the early part goes, Clinton deserves the credit on this and not the Republican House. My source? Alan Greenspan, whom I think knows a little more about it than you do.
The chart is clear. Republicans don't balance budgets...
