  • State of union we're going to hear more socialism and leftism, instead of personal responsibility and accountability. Obama's going to say higher taxes on wealthy, inheritance, and big banks, and more WELFARE and government programs to buy more votes from the uneducated and lazy. Our president should be inspirational, but instead chooses to be a man child blaming republicans for every problem, never taking responsibility for anything that goes wrong, and stating higher taxes and redistribution of income is the solution to every problem. Can't wait to get rid of this anti American incompetent fool.

    Sentiment: Buy

    More tax credits for those that don't pay federal income tax, which is more welfare. More government programs, which means more over paid lazy government workers coming in the office at 10 a.m. and leaving at 3 p.m. after they've played on the internet and talked on their cell phones all day. More food stamps, more free contraceptives, more free college, more free cell phones, more free internet, more free utilities, and more voters who are enslaved by the government who will vote for the anti American, socialistic, leftist democrat politicians. Enemies of the state.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Can't wait until this leftist, socialist, divisive man child leaves office. The answer to ever problem is tax the rich and give the money to the lazy democratic voters. It's never his fault and never takes responsibility for anything that goes wrong. It's always those bad ole rich republicans. He's such a child.

    Too bad we don't have a president who inspires the youth to stay in school, don't have kids until you finish your education, have a full time job, and get married. Welfare keeps going up, and the more people democrats get on welfare and dependent upon the government for their food and shelter, the more votes they get. Hard to believe we now have nearly 50 million Americans receiving food stamps, and another 50 million receiving some type of food subsidies such as wic and school lunches. Slaves of the state. democrats bought them on the auction block 200 hundred years ago, and buy them today with welfare. Pathetic.

    Sentiment: Hold

    I'd rather we sell them Washington DC, Maine, Rhode Island, and Vermont. I'd keep Alaska.

    By economic collapse, I suspect you're referring to when high inflation kicks in and those of us who thought we had enough saved for retirement find out that our money can only buy about 1/4 of we expected it to buy during our retirement years, perhaps even less. The ultimate investment for the worst case scenario would be a farm and plenty of guns and ammo. Unlikely worst case scenario will occur, but many wealthy people have already taken precautionary measures by purchasing a lot of prime time farmland driving the price per acre way up in the heartland.

    Premium farm land, gold and silver prices have all gone up significantly in recent years. Just go back a few years and you'll see gold at around $350, silver at around $5.50, and prime irrigated farmland at around $2,000 an acre. As our deficits and national debt exploded, and the Federal Reserve printed more and more money, land, gold, and silver are now trading at around $8,000 per acre, $1,200 per ounce, and $13.00 an ounce, respectively. We'll never pay off the debt, and before long we won't be able to afford the interest either. If Washington was smart, which they aren't, they would refinance as much of our $18 trillion debt with 30 yr now instead of short term. That would result in short term pain because of the higher interest rates, but it would at least give us a chance when inflation kicks in.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Deficits are only going to explode further when interest rates start going up again. Every 1% adds another $180 billion in annual debt. Unemployment amongst American citizens with high school diploma or less is around 13%, and many of these also receive some type welfare. Yet our idiotic politicians want to make it easier for low skilled ILLEGAL immigrants to stay in America and take the jobs away from our low skilled Americans and depress their wages. About 50% of the illegals also receive welfare increasing our deficits and debt. Our president and congress are incompetent idiots. U.S. has become a house of cards, and the day will come when inflation takes off and our currency becomes nearly worthless.

    Sentiment: Buy

    As long as Obama is in the white house, and attorney general is a democrat, there will always be the risk of more litigation. Now that republicans are back in control, all we need is to unwind some of the dodd/frank legislation and the banks will roll.

    Sentiment: Buy
