    Last time the US Government allowed offshore profits to be repatriated, the IRS reported that there was absolutely zero dollars reinvested back into the US economy, however, there were record bonuses that were passed out to executives from the hundreds and hundreds of companies that repatriated.

    Dude, you just might to check the recent airline flights that were grounded because of Apple map - reported on April 25th of this year. Dont think they need HERE? Think again:

    Pad App Glitch Grounds American Airlines Flights

    One of the biggest bits of Apple news from the world of aviation over the last couple of years is the shift from using paper navigation charts in the cockpit to using iPads for the same purpose. American Airlines has been using Apple's signature tablet for that very purpose since 2011, but a problem with the third-party app used for the charts caused "dozens" of American Airline flights to stay grounded over the last couple of days. Fortunately, the trouble now appears to be over.

    Specifically, as reported by CNN, the glitch caused delays for 24 flights on Tuesday and 50 more today. That sounds like a lot, but considering that American Airlines reportedly sends off around 6,700 flights on a daily basis, it's not anywhere near as bad as it could have been.

    "Some flights are experiencing an issue with a software application on pilot iPads," American Airlines said in a statement from earlier today. "In some cases, the flight has had to return to the gate to access a WiFi connection to fix the issue." In addition, pilots were also told that they could pick up physical copies of the maps at the airports.

    It appears that what AOL did over the past 3 years is beginning to gain some strong monetization traction. Looks like Verizon is getting it at the sweet spot.

    Thinking of Purchasing VZ

    Here's my plan for dividends, hold positions that pay monthly dividends, 12 months out of the year. Next, have 3 good quarterly dividend payers, one pays in January, next one pays in February, the last pays in March, then its a rinse and repeat. On quarterly dividend payers, keep 2/3rds of the cash for any given position invested, the other 1/3rd trade, when get a nice profit, subtract the core cash traded and then plow the profits into building up the monthly dividend payers or into the other 2 quarterly dividend payers. Then sit in cash with the core dollars that was trading until next good entry point. This has worked out very well for me. How well you might ask? I just plowed over $23K in profits from a trade into one of my monthly dividend payers that will now generate a hair over $300 per month or a little over $3600 per year in dividends from just this one that I took profits on. Sitting in cash with from my core that I trade with, the other 2/3rds in that quarterly position, I am letting that run. The quarterly dividends when I get those, have those deposited to my cash account, then look at what I want to put those profits into. I look very closely at the dividend history and only put my money into things where the dividends have stayed static a long long time or there is a steady increase in dividends over a long period of time. Wealth is built over a longer period of time. I ran my plan by several certified financial planners and they all seems to indicate that the approach that I am using is a sound one. I would recommend you do some research into dividend producers before you belly up any money, the markets will always be here for you to trade and make profits, your time however is a vanishing quantity, invest your time wisely and you should be able to profit handsomely. My goal by the way is to generate over $35K a month in dividends.

    An astute observation of the rather obvious.
