Re: Why not to Uzi-train your nine year old

Someone posted this last night to my FB feed, and I don't just blame the idiot parent(s) - I also blame the instructor who should've put his foot down on showing a 9 year-old how to fire an Uzi. This isn't Gaza for pete's sake.

This wasn't some rogue instructor letting the 9 yr old have the uzi; this is their standard operating procedure.

Re: Frank Sinatra on religion

Color me surprised, too. The interview seems so unlike Sinatra, I wonder if we are being duped. The interview wasn't in the Onion, was it?

The gun range "Bullets and Burgers" where it happened has videos on their web site of their customers having fun with machine guns. One of the videos, a kid with yellow shirt, looks about 12 years old, shooting an uzi in automatic, and its [more]

Re: Frank Sinatra on religion

Interesting interview.

Sinatra seems to have quite a vocabulary, but "opprobrium" and "obeisance" doesn't sound like Sinatra. I suspect the answers were probably written in advance. But I don't doubt these were Sinatra's [more]

Re: Go short: 3 stocks heading lower

I would not agree with that article that Cree is a good short. The 1.2 billion in cash plus no debt should put a floor under the share price. And also the fact that Cree was recently using some of its cash to buy back shares around $47.

Re: IBM earnings out

The thing that makes me nervous about holding much IBM is this the thought of what would happen to IBM stock if Buffett changed his mind about it. I think there may be a lot of people holding IBM just because they trust Buffett's judgement on it. [more]

Remember in 2008-9 all assets were proven to be correlated, so that should give some of the staunch asset allocators pause for thoughtful reflection ...
