You're right....you need the banks and financial firms look over your money and fee it till you are left with peanuts after taxes.....  (Aug 25, 2008 | post #9)

Social Security more solvent than most Americans realize

Actually I tend to believe Social Security will remain solvent for quite a while only because many people will find that they cannot AFFORD to retire..... They can't sell their house, their 401k is tanked, and their employer's pension fund is bankrupt....but who knows....just my views.....  (Aug 23, 2008 | post #1)

Cabela's cuts back on store openings

Actually that is typical of any company or store.... Unfortunately, when the local gov't entities can no longer get money to pay for the improvements, let alone for current needs, retailers find out the hard way their growth has ended, and will begin to decline....just my views....  (Aug 20, 2008 | post #9)

Advice to help consumers avoid, manage their credit-card ...

The era of the 401k/IRA and expected returns on stocks is over...... After atrocious fees and taxes (remember the 401k administrator needs his/her cut!), one quickly finds out that a 401k is no longer a good alternative. One invests in overrated funds (provided of course they are still solvent in 20 years), and with basically flat to negative returns. In fact, one finds out they actually lost money. I no longer recommend people have one...just my views....  (Aug 17, 2008 | post #4)

Traffic deaths hit lowest point in U.S. since '94

Because fewer people can afford to drive perhaps? Just my views....  (Aug 15, 2008 | post #1)

They're mostly subsidised by many entities, the least of which is their own government. And the dollar is very weak. But most are associated with business....  (Aug 6, 2008 | post #13)

Cross-border trucking extended

Ah yes, an Administration in its death throes. Fortunately Congress will come back from recess and shut them down again. I don't think Mexican safety standards are even remotely close to US Standards.....  (Aug 5, 2008 | post #2)

Procter & Gamble offering shiny new car-wash franchises

Talk about an idea that went obsolete before it comes out! Ummm, let's see....heading into a deep recession, high gas prices, more people driving less...possible demise of the automobile society as we know it (at least the internal combustion engine)..... Yeah....good idea.....just my views....  (Aug 4, 2008 | post #3)

Report suggests downturn still likely

Then why was 4th Q of 2007 revised lower? And how do you know that 1Q this year will also be revised into the negative? Maybe because they had more data to show that indeed, this economy is going the wrong way....just my views...  (Aug 1, 2008 | post #6)

U.S. deaths during July a new low

Not taking away from the individual tragedies with each death, but who couldn't see this coming. An imminent US withdrawal, and the insurgents have to save their ammunition for the upcoming civil war!!! No wonder US troops are dying at a lower rate!!!  (Aug 1, 2008 | post #1)

President Bush in Cleveland Tuesday

He outspent them. That's easy. The Soviets couldn't keep up with the likes of our defense programs, and they needed new leadership because their 60's style leadership wasn't cutting it in the 80's. Enter Gorbachev....and the rest is history...just my views...  (Jul 29, 2008 | post #122)
