Abortion is a choice, not to be approved or disapproved by government. Government needs to kick itself out of what people do in their own personal lives.
Obamacare seems to be pretty successful so far. Obviously, Obamacare is not perfect, this is mostly due to Teabaggers whining and obstructing implementation of the law. However, with time and some adjustments, Obamacare will no doubt get better. It is too bad Obama cannot get more than 2 terms as president, he would be a great president for several more terms.
Another day, another Teabagger whining his heart out over some imaginary garbage made up in his little pea brain.
Teabaggers will find something to whine about on any good news. Teabaggers are naturals whiners. No doubt if world peace breaks out tomorrow, Teabaggers will absolutely howl with vitriol.
You seem to live in bubble and know nothing about the real world. Government pay compared to private pay is miniscule. Few if any people actually make $1 million per year in government let alone making $100 million. BTW, the above is not an endorsement of increasing government pay.
CEO pay is not an issue unless the company is publicly traded. The CEO of a publicly traded company is responsible to shareholders. If his pay is not commensurate with his performance to shareholders, then he/she should lose pay or be fired.
Fixed income people are mostly people living on Social Security. Following are important points for those on fixed income:
1) You are a moron if you depend solely on Social Security to fund your retirement. Should have saved more when you are younger. Those with other sources of savings will be doing fine.
2) It is the GOP/Teabaggers who want to cut Social Security so they can fund a big tax cut for their rich pals and their big weapons programs, This is the dumb Paul Ryan plan. Expect a big cut to your income if the GOP gets control of the government.
3) The biggest problem for those on fixed income is inflation rate. Inflation has actually been very tame the last 5 years. Inflation was much higher during the Bush Jr. administration. Remember highest ever gasoline prices under Bush Jr?
Great that the stupid Rush Limpshzit has move out of NY. He does not deserve the right to live in a state like NY or anywhere else for that matter.
Liberals don't generally agree with all the trash talk. However, Palin is a still a stupid #$%$.
The fate of Detroit city council pensions need to be determined by the bankruptcy court. That is what the courts are for, to make these types of decisions.
Gold and silver prices still seems to be rather high even with the recent drop in prices. I might start buying this stock if price of silver drops to perhaps the $15 level. Meanwhile, technology stocks seems to be providing a better price to potential reward ratio. JMO.
Any money put into Detroit at this time is just money thrown into a bottomless pit. Detroit needs bankruptcy and a reorganization to get a fresh start. Detroit just has too many problems to make the city livable and productive. Bankruptcy is a risk and might lead to eventual break up of Detroit but it is a risk the city has to take. After reorganization, if it goes well, there will be more private entities willing to invest in the city.
Did market tanked? Does not seem so. Perhaps you should sell your only 1 share of whatever stock you own and stop worrying about the market.
Just wild speculation in your post. QE will probably soon to end. The market is already anticipating this. Will ending QE have much effect on the market? Probably not, by that time the economy will be strong enough to stand on its own feet very well without QE. The market will most likely keep going up because of strong earnings from corporations. Gold might tank some more though but that is not a problem.
The market is fine. If you are worried about the market being down a bit for today, you should sell all your shares and stop worrying.
There is no talk about any Federal or other government bailout of Detroit.
Regarding statement 'government has no money unless they take it from some one that has it'. This is not always true. Government is an entity that provides a service. Sometimes the government makes a big profit from the services it provide. It is the Federal government after all that did the Louisiana Purchase for a measly $12 million. This investment has already paid off many thousands of time over again and again for the government. The government is also behind seeding many of the technologies that we all now take for granted. Technologies such as computers, Internet, GPS, fracking, Interstate highway, etc. All of these technologies have paid off tremendously for both government and society.
