Re: John Oliver of HBO on Income Inequality

Thanks for the response, and I agree with you. Much of the success I've seen relates to the trade educations in Europe, particularly Germany. I'm 100% for it, not just 2-4 year college degrees. I think they're both important, both have their won [more]

Re: John Oliver of HBO on Income Inequality

Not many are willing to discuss the hard work that's needed to properly address this. Like CJ, I think having an extra 2 years or even more of school is a great idea. It definitely solves a large chunk of the problem. Another area that is very [more]

Re: GPRO and the market in general

I added GPRO to one of my CAPS portfolios, which meant I read at least 2 and maybe 3 sentences about it. It got an upgrade today. Woot!

Right after I posted that it jumped quite a bit! Wish I had grabbed some when I posted. lol It's [more]

Re: The American Dream is Dead

That's changed. We're now in a "knowledge" economy where the good middle class jobs require further education than high school. I don't think that means the "American Dream" is "dead" - it's just changed, and requires [more]

Re: The American Dream is Dead

The Dream isn't dead, just too many people aren't pursuing it.

I think that's always been true. It's just more noticable in todays world with the internet being so pervasive.

Re: The American Dream is Dead

The American Dream to MOST people, MILLIONS of people, was not being one of a handful of people to become high rated TV hosts and political commentators. Sure, many dream of being DJ’s but for every Rush or Stern, there’s 1000 starving [more]

The American Dream is Dead

So said John Oliver on his show the other night. I've also heard it on Bill Maher's show as well as Jon Stewart's show. I read it all the time in op-eds on various online media centers and it seems to be a central point with many running for [more]

GPRO and the market in general

Just checked out GPRO which is dropping due to a Barrons article. I'm wondering if there is a buy opportunity here. Haven't really looked too deep yet but it's interesting.

The market is NOT what I expected at this point, hitting record [more]

Re: golf course suggestions in D.C.

I lived in that area for many years but haven't been back since 2007 to play golf. Reston, VA has a course that has been there as long as any I know of and it wasn't very expensive to play there. The course is so-so but it's easy to get to and fun to [more]

The answer to why Viagra is covered and birth control is not covered....is simple:

Why is Viagra covered?

I've wondered about this for years and all the explanations I've heard (erectile disfunction being an illness and such) don't make a lot of sense to me. Yes, it would not be fun to not be able to have an erection but what about those cases where [more]
