Some here are still in the "run a Nation on credit mode"
1. We are broke 2. We are spending money we don't have. 3. We aren't selling cars, planes, siding, appliances. 4. We have a new President who wants to insulate government buildings, poor more money in the rat trap public school system, save State government employees from loss of jobs and use tax payers money to replenish their pension fund losses and union contracts. 5. We want to pour money into electric cars, windmills and solar. City dwellers will be stringing extension cords all over the pavements and scrapping snow and ice off their their solar panels. 6. National health insurance that will cost Trillions. Just to mention a few.
AND THIS IS WHY SOME THINK ALCOA IS A BUY> Bless their souls because I see nothing here that even suggests we are near the bottom in this economy.
