The defense industry giants are going to feel some pain with this administration. I should say more pain. Just saw on TV that our people in Iraq or wherever in the mid-east are abandoning (or destroying) a few billion $'s in vehicles rather than bringing them back or finding other US units to take them. As a taxpayer, this f'n hurts big time.
Boeing has it together. Their stockholders are very fortunate. Stock is at $134, they are going to buy back $10 billion and are raising the dividend by 50%. I hope they do buy Sikorsky. Maybe UTX will bump up. I would love this thing to get to $120 w/in a year. I need it for all my bad habits.
CTB- You got it wrong. I am not worried about the state of "politics". Politics do not change. Remember this quote (not mine): In politics, the first casualty is truth". I AM worried about the state of the "Union" because of politics. As far as being and effective market commentator, keep this in mind......There are dozens, if not hundreds of market commentators out there. Many say the markets are going way up and many are saying just the opposite. And, many are considered experts in their fields.
Kid- Right on! The libs do not want IDs because dead people cannot get them and allot of the dead voted for the(ir) president. Einstein was amazed at how people could do the same thing over and over and expect different results.
Kid - Thanks for the post. Some of the blind mice that are followers of this numb#$%$ pres and his czars, cronies, etc., are finally starting to realize he has no grasp of reality and no credentials for the position he holds. His Obummercare and policies are costing people money and jobs. Yet, if there was no 2 -term limit, I would bet the liberals in this country would elect him again until utter destruction was evident. I truly believe that some people are, in fact, too stupid to vote. I worry about our union's future.
They would clean up Sickorsky's management too. They have had a bunch of clowns in there since Buckley left.
Now, you know how the a**h***s at Sikorsky and UTC are going to solve the problem?...........more layoffs. That is the solution to everything.
Holy cr**! I hope you are right with that one. Now if the jobs number comes in good, we are off to the races. Do daah, Do daah
W2B - Haven't you ever seen the trucks from the US Treasury driving around? They are loaded with newly printed money and they are distributing it all around to states, cities, individual organizations, etc. They have a fleet of at least 1,000 tractor-trailers that they load as fast as they can print it.
Here is your problem with Congress: http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/01/20/congress.veterans/
They have no love of country
I have no use for Blumenidiot. On one occasion when I was at the VA hospital in Waste Haven, he was doing a news report in front of the entrance. He does not belong in that place of honor. There is NO such thing as a politician misspeaking. They are lies.
W2B- Funny you should mention doing away with SS. It was LBJ in the 60's that took the SS trust fund and dumped it into the general fund so he could continue pouring money into Vietnam to the tune of about $1 mil per day (That was allot back then). Dumbocrats f#@%ing-up the country's finances goes way back. If they left it alone, the SS system would be in great shape.
W2B - Thank you for the explanation. Now I understand! We already spent the money we don't have. So it is only right to honor our debt. Got it.
Want2bik - You are probably much more financially astute than me. I will give you that one. For my benefit, can you please educate me.........With all the debt we have, how do things get better if we go further into debt by raising the ceiling? You are much smarter than I am and I know you have the right answer. Because, if it is better for the country to go further into debt, than I am going to do it also in my own personal finances. Thanks in advance for your advice.
What happens if we just keep raising the debt limit for another 5 years? When does the piper get paid? We are screwed now and it just keeps getting worse.
