    How are you spending that....

    bonobo spent mine for me on welfare and votes and amnesty and healthcare for illegal aliens and other tardien stuff that I'll never benefit from.

    But what's $200 billion per yr wasted by the gov? We got what 8 million people some insurance. That's only $25,000 per person per year. A bargain under bonobonomics, when they're used to wasting $1.4 trillion per year.

    Sounds like crazy talk in C's world.

    Here's real sensible corporate machinations. You can take a stock certificate or several billion of one corporation and buy a whole other corporation with it.

    Using this, C should take its stock and buy a real bank.

    Another man-made Polar Vortex????

    No the economy was pretty weak when Bush took over then 8 months later thanks to Bill Clinton's letting Obama Barrack Bin Laden go, 911 happened. The stock market had to be closed for a week. The DOW fell to 7500 and by 2008 it reached all time highs.

    I suspect with all of the tard policy instituted by bonobo into the economy, like Clinton had done with housing, a very short time after bonobo leaves the office as the worst pres in us history, it's likely to collapse. The can can only be kicked down the road so far. And tards aided by the msm will as usual blame it on someone else.

    I'd rather look at the facts.

    bonobo's non-farm payrolls are just now about 1 million more than what they were at the peak of the Bush admin..... and the population is 20 or 30 million more than 2008. So bonobo fails on jobs.

    For his first 5 yrs in office he deficit spent 8% of GDP. According to his tard financial guru's, Christin /Christina (much like igitmoney of ambiguous gender) Romer, claim for every dollar spent on even welfare, let alone hood productive stimulus spending, you should get $1.60 back in GDP. By that yard rule, bonobo's 8% deficit spending should have generated 12.8% growth in GDP. bonobo's GDP growth has averaged a paltry 1%. bonobo fails on economic growth.

    Worse it will dampen future growth because that $8 trillion wasted on welfare will have to be paid back by, no not the 47% of the population of bonobo supporters who are drags on economic growth, but by the productive 50% of the population who make up the majority of the contribution to the real GDP. It's called opportunity costs for you clueless tards.

    All in all bonobo has performed as well as any incompetent out of control tard president would perform. A complete failure.

    Class dismissed.

    It's all for our own good. The tard economy is bigger than GDP, it's mission is to "save the planet".

    A microcosm of which can be seen on the border between Haiti and the The Dominican Republic. If you view this either from google earth or NASA satelite photos, you'll see that most of the trees on the Haiti side are gone, while most of the trees on the DR side are thriving. In fact there's more trees in the DR forests now than in the past.

    Which country burns fossil fuels and has a more robust SUV driving modern economy and which has a more tardian near zero fossil fuel burning renewable energy back to nature one?

    Tards know what's best for us.

    Oh if it isn't the git, igitmoneyfrombonobos'stash.

    A. Climate ‘Change?’: Scientists Say 2014 Was Not The Warmest Year On Record

    With '14 essentially tied with '05 and '10, this implies that there has been essentially no trend in warming over the past decade,” said Judith Curry, a climate scientist at the Georgia Institute of Technology. “This ‘almost’ record year does not help the growing discrepancy between the climate model projections and the surface temp observations.”

    Furthermore, satellite temp records show that 2014 was nowhere near the warmest on record. The University of Alabama, Huntsville satellite dataset ranked 2014 as the 3rd warmest while the Remote Sensing Systems satellite dataset ranked 2014 as the sixth.

    “Uncertainties in the estimates of global temps are larger than the differences between the warmest years. Let's repeat that,... while CO2 is skyrocketing... "Uncertainties in the estimates of global temps are larger than the differences between the warmest years."

    This limits what we can say about rankings of individual years,” said Colin Morice, a climate scientist at the Met Office. “We can say with confidence that 2014 is one of ten warmest years in the series and that it adds to the set of temps we have seen over the last two decades.”

    So for the last 2 decades temps are flat while atmospheric CO2 has grown exponentially.

    But further, if you did the search for the 1/2 million yr history of temps & CO2, i. several times temps were much higher than today w/o SUV's & industrial revolutions & ii. much of that period shows that temps fell drastically, then 500-1000 years later, CO2 followed suit,... which means,....yes go ahead & shout it out if you know... CO2 is a function of temps,.. not the other way round.

    B. I never said buy oil stocks, minigit. Quite the opposite. I said buy companies whose costs were directly tied to energy prices. Sorry if you lost money buying oil on what you thought was my recommendation.

    Class dismissed.

  • stocktor_evil stocktor_evil Jan 23, 2015 10:25 AM Flag

    You'd have to be a complete fool to believe 2014 or any other year was the hottest year on record AND believe it is caused by CO2 AND man,.... And worse that some kind of politically correct social engineering govt tax that would cause economic havoc on untold innocents could stop "climate change".

    First IPCC data itself shows average temps falling over the 18 years. Well except for the ones who use the Michael Mann method of hiding the decline.

    Second, the climate change cult claims the mechanism by which CO2 increases temps involves CO2 being a secondary driver of moisture (the primary greenhouse gas) in the atmosphere. Problem is atmospheric moisture is not up. I'd could go into the thermodynamics of it, but it would be long and way over the head of most of the "climate change" cult. There's a simpler case,....

    Third, if you search for global temps vs CO2 over the last half million years, there are at least 3 times when temps were much higher than today. On the same chart it shows CO2 at elevated levels generally in tune with temps. Problem is A. There was no industrial revolution or cars in any of those periods & B. the chart shows CO2 lags temps, ie temps fall drastically and CO2 follows 500 to 1000 yrs later, much of the time which means as I've said often CO2 is a function of temps not the other way around.

    Now if the CO2 cult claimed that CO2 was a poisonous gas for humans, they might have had a point, but a. It's not, we exhale it,... our bodies are a major source and b. trees & plants love this stuff. In fact they need it to survive and lo and behold when they absorb it, they give off oxygen in return. Who'd a think?

    Rather than try to force more liberty taking economy wreaking fictitious taxing nonsolutions on people already burdened with job hampering poorly contrived bad liberal (which is anything but liberating) policy, hypocritical "climate change" cult would be better served and even help with a concern over CO2 by sticking to tree hugging.

    Saying we need to "do something about climate change", the earth's movement relative to the sun, 'before we leave future generations a horrible existence of varying degrees of summers and cold winters' is like saying we need to do something about the wetnosity of water to prevent future generations from having to suffer our generation's selfish lackadaisical attitude toward slippery surfaces.

    And what do we do about India whose continental plate is irresponsibly crashing into Asia at this very minute? I mean that's doing relations with China no good whatsoever. We need to start immediate sanctions against India and then tax all rich people in the US. After all, they're responsible for it,.. sending all of those telephone jobs overseas to India. We also need a plate tectonic tax credit system. Where those counties whose plates are crashing into other poorer countries' plates can buy the rights of other countries have to crash into their neighbors, but aren't.

    Is that anything like "middle class bonobonomics"

    Because under "middle class bonobonomics", the middle class has to bend over and spread.

  • when he said we need to do something about "climate change".

    What do you bonobo supportingmorons not understand about the ridiculousness of trying to stop "climate change"? The climate has been changing since the earth was formed. It's impossible for it not to change. Temps change by 30 degrees every day. You should feel insulted anytime anybody uses the phrase "climate change". And we certainly aren't warming.

    For the last 18 years, average temps have been flat to falling while CO2 has been skyrocketing.

    The research of climateologists used to support their claims can be seen for yourself by searching for the video: "Climategate 'hide the decline' explained by Berkeley professor Richard A. Muller"

    The northern hemisphere summer had far fewer 100 plus deg days than average. There were no hurricanes to speak of at a time when, according to climate change alarmists, we should be getting hit with one hurricane after another.

    Sea levels are not rising. There's no more moisture in the atmosphere than 100 years ago. In fact average relative humidity, the thing CO2 is supposed to increase to cause the spiraling out of control green house effect, is falling.

    Temps aren't a function CO2, CO2 is a function of temps.

    And whose idea was it to put that over smiling hick, whose first comment was "we appreciate hearing bonobo's comments", to give the republican response?

    Boehner, McConnell,.. need to go.

  • Non farm payrolls are just now about 1 million above what they were in 2007/8 while the population has grown by 20 or 30 million since then,.. which roughly equates to the 20 or 30 million his added to the welfare state, which is proportional to the black unemployment rate being up double other races. Wages are down, but his democrat crony capitalist billionaires, the top 0.1%, have double digit gains.

    Of course, he'll have a lots of I's, my's and me's for anything good and lots of they's, them's and republicans, who've only controlled 1/3rd of the govt for 2/3rds of his time in office for everything bad. Yes, he'll even take credit for "drill baby drill" and claiming he could see Russia from his hood in the 57th state before Tina Fey said Palin said she could.

    And his solution for an economy he'll claim is doing so well (if it's doing so well, why would he need to do anything?), won't be tax cuts for the middle class, but to raise taxes and increase socialism and handouts for the democrat sloth of American society, because the government is much better at wasting your tax dollars than you are.

    Thank evolution and the founding fathers, we've only got 2 more years of the most incompetent, inept, lying pretendident in US history.

    One minor issue,.... Profit is not generated from assets.

    Profits are what's left when expenses are deducted from REVENUES.

    C's revenues in '13 were $76 billion. This year they were $77 billion. Next year they'll be $78 billion.

    Expenses in 2014 were $70 billion.

    Now do the math.

    It's too bad a company to not pass up.

    Under bonobonomics, the whole financial sector is too bad to NOT pass up. But if you're compelled to be in a losing sector, at least pick the best company in the losing sector. And that ain't C.

    In the last 6 years C has changed it's "model" 2 or 3 times. From all kinds of risky garbage prior to 2008 to a focus on international in 2009 to dumping international and steering toward investment banking in 2013. That's a ship without a rudder.

    You need a company with a rudder or you'll have to man a life boat and wind up xhit creek without a paddle, like now if you own C.

  • Can't say I blame the poster. C did disappoint on even exponentially lowered expectations as I said they would.

  • stocktor_evil stocktor_evil Jan 14, 2015 9:44 PM Flag

    Without the $2.8 billion charge for legal costs, this would have been a sub-par qtr.

    Since C has already hosed up the qtr with the charge, this is a good opportunity to air out all bad news and throw end of q earnings and rev's into next qtr to boost it. Better to do it this qtr, than to have yet another disappointment next q.

    Expect a rough ride on release and during the conference call.

  • stocktor_evil stocktor_evil Jan 14, 2015 5:14 PM Flag

    That's about 10% and 100% higher than analyst expectations, but even at that, earnings would be just 90% below last year and last quarter.

    Good news all around.

  • but if Hillary has presidential aspirations, it would have been a good time to go to France, join other leaders and act as if America had some kind of leadership of its own,..... although, she is the antithesis of a leader as much as bonobo is.

    Even though this was just a kumbaya moment that France and Europe will not follow up on especially in taking back their "no go zones", this was a missed opportunity for any candidate thinking about running for president, a position that has gone unfilled for going on 7 years now. Not only an opportunity for Biden to attempt outdo hillary, but on the republican side as well.

    If Romney is thinking of running again, he should have hopped on one of his jets and took a holiday in France and gotten some brownie points. Same for Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Ryan Rand or Paul Paul. Chris Christie was busy giving Jerry Jones the bonobo thunderstorm welcome in his box office.

    What a motley crew we have. I say let's dig Reagan up and run him. He could do better than bonobo laying on his back.

    A. I've never heard a reduction in consumer and business expenses being characterized as a bad thing before. When the prices of computers fall, how often do you hear anyone invoking preparations for financial calamity? This is why we "drilled bay drilled", to reduce the cost of energy and dependence on foreign sources. If we were Russia, heavily dependent on oil exports, it might be a concern, it might be a lesson not to invade Ukraine. But we're not and we haven't.

    B. The $4 trillion on the Fed balance sht and the $8 trillion and growing added to the debt is not because of the recession, it's because of an inept incompetent welfare state growing America hating pretendident who probably couldn't balance his own check book, let alone lead the US out of recession and on to sustained economic prosperity.
