As a Roman Catholic myself, Israel is our ally there in that region. I seved our United State's military during the Viet Nam war era, but my ship was deployed to the Med during the oil crises of 1973.
I respect Mr. Buffett, and I will spend 70% of my future social security spending very soon in shopping at Walmart(currently unemployed). I predict, thank's to fracking, lower energy prices. WMT is shareholder friendly and increases it's dividend every year. It is also satisfying to know that one invest's one's money into that corporation where one shop's.
For you traders, I follow The COT Report. Ever since 2008, everyone has to be a trader. Gold has high commercial, "net week to week" buying. The gold/ xau ratio is at historic high's. I bought just a 5% position in best of breed GG toward's the close of trading on Friday. Be forwarned however, the commercial's(so called smart money) is from my experience not a short term indicator, but more like a medium term trade My advice would be to average a little week to week in GG. Some folk's say that the price of gold will fall to 1000 an ounce.
As a two term United State's military Veteran, the United State's has ten time's the military force of the next strongest country... China. America will be a net exporter of oil lin the future, thank's to fracking. America is the best country in the world. These doomsayer's want only to make money for themselve's. Mr. Limbaugh refused to serve our United State's military.
This magic round number of the dow get's me nervous. I lost alot of money in 2008. I am thinking that we will fill that gap, before getting whole hog in the stock market.
You are high! I am an alcoholic. When a person is on any kind of drug, they regret later what they have posted.
Congress is useless. Mr. Bernanke is the reason our United State's stock market is rising with little or no inflation.
You have got it wrong Mark. Mr. Bernanke studied the depression of the 1930's and he has vowed, in my thinking, to not let it happen. A depression is not good for any American. There is an ole saying that goes, Do not fight The Federal Reserve. On a short term "trading" thing we may have to fill that gap strong openning on Friday. My ira account is currently 70% in cash. I sold some stock's toward the close of trading on Friday.
I am from the South and Woodie would be my friend. He worked hard all his life and served the United State's military, like myself. i love his song's. Poverty suck's.
Mr. Limbaugh hate's my Commander in Chief. He was a coward to not serve America during the Viet Nam war. Mr. Kerry served, like myself.
They were great during the depression of the 1930's. If I was Woodie Guthrie, I would have stand for him. But now, like it or not, we live in a global economy, and my side is the United State's of America.
I alway's shop at Walmart. They are shareholder friendly, and the employee's are great. My first job was at McDonald's at 1.60 an hour way back in 1969. I lived in my car at the time,and worked my way up.
I actually have an ole time radio recorder that I tape Mr. Phil Hendrie. On a side note, SCTV was great. I have all of their DVD's. Thank God for Mr. Phil Hendrie for doing satire on radio.
99% of folk's know that it is satire, but that 1% of caller's is what make Mr. Phil Hendrie, a great radio show. To save money I cut cable and just listen to commercial radio and tv.
