I grew up in St. Paul, MN, which was nearly 50% Roman Catholic at the time. As I used to walk home from school as a Protestant, the Parochial school kids up on top of a small hill used to shout, "All crooks are Protestants." I was [more]

Re: Just How Good Is The U.S. Economy?

When you buy a stock on the open market, you aren't helping the company in the least. Your money went to the seller of the stock. The only stock sale that gives the company money to invest is their public offerings.
