Slow down greedy one, you will upset your pea brain. What happened?
I haven't been here for a while, I guess someone is taking you down a few steps, and taking the tarnish off of your GOLD. As you were told by someone, "You can't take it with you", not unless you tell them to bury you with your GOD $$$$$$.
Are you going to show your bankbook next idiot??? Now I know why you are in love with Barry Obama Soetoro, you can not stand or recognize the truth. Don't panic yet you have 2 more weeks left before all of your bonds tank fool, still time to sell them to some unsuspecting greedy person like you. Your bankbook must be as empty as your head. Calm down, everyone loses money in the stock market sooner or later, unless you are willing to go public and sell your advice, and make a complete fool of yourself. I didn't realize that you were a genius in your own mind. There too just like Barry Soetoro. I wonder if I can entice Chris Christie to make this speech about you????:

The truth about Barack Barry Soetoro Obama:



Now sit back TV Fool and learn something!

Seems like the money expert is having a fit? I guess Tv Nut is having a diarrhea fit. I thought he only went crazy about Politics.
Seems like someone is trying to separate him from his love--Money.
I guess Bruser, and Hellion Prime have your number TV Phony. Why don't you go on the financial blogs(which is probably where you get your information from, and copy their take on things). This blog is about Healthcare, not Greedycare. I have to remember to pray for your lost soul.

Or maybe you're implying the Obama administration made bad decisions. Ok, No one is perfect. 4). Those Americans that died understood the danger before they went. As I've been saying sh-t happens.
1). Where did I state I was a "conservative"?

2). Can we apply this same attitude to other situations, like 9/11? Can we write off every disastrous event in such a way?

3). It is his job to ensure the safety of those on American soil, there was a call for support, they received none. More security was requested BEFORE the attack. Well in advance and yet nothing was done.

4). Would you have this same attitude if a son or daughter was killed in the attack?

1). Can you give me an example from one of my posts where I "put words in your mouth" or when I tried to "explain what you own"?

I stated that the bond market is in dire straits and you provided me with information on junk bonds, which are not even close to exemplary of the market as a whole. Yet you continue to provide them.

Let's return to my original comments:

Stock Market: "Benchmarks lost their initial gains to end mostly flat as apprehensions about contracting profits of financial bellwethers dented investor sentiment on Friday. At the close of the trading session on Friday, markets recorded their worst weekly performance in four months."

"The financial sector had a bad run and the Financial Select Sector SPDR (ETF) dropped 1.3%. Stocks such as JPM, Citigroup Inc.(NYSE: C ), Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.(NYSE: GS ), PNC Financial Services (NYSE: PNC ) and Wells Fargo lost 1.1%, 2.2%, 1.5%, 2.8% and 2.6% respectively."

- The Financial sector is of the utmost importance. Losses within this sector are never a good sign.

Link: http://community.nasdaq.com/News/2012-10/stoc ...

Interest Rates: According to Forbes the interest rates are going to increase during the 2012 and 2013 season.

"I expect long rates to rise by about a percentage point a year for 2012 and 2013, which would leave the ten-year Treasury bond around four percent and the 30-year mortgage about 5.6 percent at the end of 2013."

"This is an ugly time for fixed-income investors."

Now, can you tell me that the market is in good shape when looking at this information?

<quoted text>You didn't prove sh-t. You created a theory based on your interpretation. Tell us something, what has Obama done wrong? Why should it matter in this election? All your evidence can be questioned, and interpreted in different ways. Are you saying Obama did something illegal, or stupid? Are you saying he should be fired over this? Tell me what your trying to say.
Can you explain how the information I posted can be "interpreted in different ways" please?

I am stating that Crowley was wrong in her assertion that Obama in the rose garden claimed it was a terrorist attack in Libya.

I believe the evidence from the transcripts I presented more than support this fact.

I suggest you review what "private corporate information" means. The key term being "private".

I have provided you with an ample amount of information. I suggest you reread my original post where you claimed the experts were "stupid".

TV JERK, is really going off the wall. Now TV claims that the experts are "Stupid"????? I think you should change your name TV Man/woman to "Mouth of the World", or maybe "I am a Genius", or
"you are all ignorant", or "The world according to TV Mouth".
AT lease Ben Stein's book is about his investment mistakes, and how to learn from his mistakes. But "TV Mouth" never makes a mistake, Never loses money, knows everything about everything, and speaks with a forked tongue. Now who wants to believe and follow TV MOUTH? Not anyone with brains!

I find his argument over high risk bond returns incredibly unbelievable. You can't invest in Junk bonds and continuously receive high returns on your investments. If it is such a sure thing, why aren't more people doing it, and why are the EXPERTS advising against it?

President Obama Was Wearing an Earpiece During the Monday Debate – Further Explains Why He Had no Answers During First Debate – The Earpiece Had Problems

THIS PICTURE WAS POSTED ON DRUDGE FOR THE PAST TWO DAYS – WAKE UP AMERICA – OBAMA IS A FRAUD

President Obama was wearing an earpiece during the last debate. He was advised on what to say using this earpiece.
Is that fair America???
Did Mitt Romney wear an earpiece, no of course not!
Again, this President will stop at nothing to stay in power.– N.P.Contompasis

Obama’s earpiece and wireless transmitter failed during debate (first debate)
As the mainstream media discuss theories of what happened in last nights debate, I think a very clear explanation is obvious. President Obama’s wireless transmitter and earpiece that allow him to receive answers from his handlers was malfunctioning during the debate.

All you guys are so much fun. All this barking about TV MAN. Now that's funny. You say I can't invest in junk bonds and continuously receive high returns on investments. How do you know, are you a bond investor? Nobody makes great returns doing the obvious. It takes nerve and hard work. It takes knowledge, and understanding about trends. Would you have you invested your hard earned money that you need for your house note, car note, food,and entertainment, for some kid in the garage playing with computers. Most likely you wouldn't. Most people wouldn't, that's why they did't get wealthy. You people are so much fun.

The only "Hard work" you do is flapping your lips. "Most people", don't get right because they have a conscience, and believe in GOD not the thing you worship $$$$$. Get a life you probably have a financial subscription written by someone else like the "Penney Stock Maven" that does all of the picking, and when everything goes south, he is out of the Bonds before it tanks and you know it.
Tell your story walking fool, there is an old saying " A Fool and his money are soon parted" As I told you before, go to a financial blog with your boasting, which you probably did, and got laughed off of the blog.........LOL keep it up and you will get laughed off here also. Bye TV Fool!

What Obama Doesn't Want You to Know About Benghazi

After reading an investigative article by Frank J. Gaffney Jr. with hard on the ground work of Bret Baier and Catherin Herridge at Fox News, Aaron Klein at WND.com and Clare Lopez of RadicalIslam.org . we finally understand what Obama was doing in Benghazi that you aren’t supposed to know.
President Obama didn't want you to know that he through Ambassador Stevens, Saudi and Qatar agents were using this so-called Consulate (it was not a Consulate) as a meeting place to supply and coordinate U.S. arms to the Syrian rebels who are at this time controlled by al Qaeda.
So, in other words with less than two months before a Presidential election the President didn't want to be seen by the world as supplying al Qaeda with arms. It would have and still could be a deal breaker for the American people.
As this story gains legs and more evidence streams out over the internet to Americans more and more are putting the pieces together. Some say this is another Iran-Contra Affair, which I would agree.
In the beginning the supplies to Syria were going to the right rebels but since Obama refused to commit openly and supportively to the rebels with technical and on the ground personal, al Qaeda took over.
So, instead of stopping the shipments al Qaeda continues to get our arms shipments.
This is very confusing isn't it? We have an al Qaeda affiliate in Libya attacking and assassinating one of the guys, Ambassador Stevens that was supplying their guys in Syria.
But, that’s what happens in the “fog of war” one hand sometimes never knows what the other is doing! This whole affair will become very embarrassing the Mr. Obama prior to Election Day, you can be sure of that!–

N.P.Contompasis

(just like the "fast and furious" another idiot idea from the head idiot, Obama, and they do not understand you can not deal with the Al Qaeda)

Ben didn't say one thing I disagree with. However be aware, his bond explanation talks about investment grade bonds. I don't buy investment grade. I buy junk bonds. Investment grade doesn't pay a high enough return based on low risk. Junk bonds carry higher risk which equals much higher returns. I'm not sure you should care based on what Ben says. According to his studies you most likely belong to the group that will never have enough to make any difference.

To Helion Prime: Go figure

The reason for junk bonds is more then just high returns. It provides a steady stream of income.
Stocks are more about Capital Gains called appreciation. Stocks are slow and risky. Their like ranching. You buy a cow, feed it tell it's fat, and then slaughter it. I invest like a Dairy Farmer. Buy a cow, milk it ,put it back in the barn and milk again and again,and again. The stock is barely reaching it's level prior to the depression. For money invested in stocks in 2007, little has been made. Actually indexes haven't made much for 10 years. Savings doesn't pay. However junk bonds have been paying a large spread between low risk interest rates. If interest rates start moving up, laddering your bonds allow them to mature evenly and puts you in a position to re-invest at higher rates. I never put more then 5000 in any bond for protection of bankruptcy. Just my style, not telling anyone what to do.
