Re: Shades of Hitler and Czechoslovakia

Perhaps the creation of Israel does have some characteristics of Germany and Czechoslovakia. A country was created for Jews to enable them to escape the hostility of Europeans (something that still exists). But in doing so, they were placed in what [more]

Re: Share buybacks widespread?

Though I feel that share buybacks are a waste of corporate money, I read an article that analyzed the information and concluded that companies that buy back shares do have a positive stock performance for some reason not known to me. [more]

Nevadans were for the Yucca Mtn. repository when the Feds offered to give the state $125 million for permission (as I recall). then some nut in D.C. lowered the figure to $25 million and America has been in the soup ever since.
