Re: Retirement Gamble

Excellent report. It is basic knowledge for a lot of folks on this board, but I think it presents the fundamental issues in a way that almost anyone can understand.

401(k)s only work if you manage them wisely.

Re: For-Profit Insurers Discriminating Again

Also, food will be costly unless we get rid of for-profit grocery stores and their unnecessary additional costs.

Re: Are you surprised Halliburton is involved?

A new report charges that several oil and gas companies have been illegally using diesel fuel in their hydraulic fracturing operations, and then doctoring records to hide violations of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act.

Re: Poll: Good Night, Vietnam

I offered to accompany him to Canada--that sort of horrifies me now, but at the same time, CANADA! I love Canada. They have slightly fewer nut-ball govt officials, it seems.

Re: For-Profit Insurers Discriminating Again

You want to lower insurance costs, lower medical costs.

So we have 20% waste going to insurance company advertising and insurance company executive salaries, but you choose to ignore that.

That's just stupid.

Re: For-Profit Insurers Discriminating Again

It also didn't do anything about the cost of health care.

You are wrong about that. Turn off your right wing echo chamber talking heads and look up the facts.

Re: Poll: Good Night, Vietnam

I was pretty young at the beginning of the VietNam war - too young to think on my own. Early on I'm sure I saw protesters as anti-American, dirty, lazy hippies like most of main-stream America did. But I had an older brother who went to college and [more]

Re: Poll: Good Morning, Vietnam

I turned 19 and my birthday was assigned "23" in the lottery. I was called into the local draft office to sign a number of papers and given a "1A" classification. But the draft ended just before they got to me. So I checked the [more]

Re: For-Profit Insurers Discriminating Again

Health care won't be reformed until we get rid of for-profit health insurers and their unnecessary additional costs.

I agree completely. ACA did nothing to keep insurance companies from using the same stall and omission tactics they [more]

Re: Humans Need Not Apply

All the threatened workers need to do to protect their jobs is to lower their wages to the point at which using a robot to do the work is not cost-effective.

So really, the best way to protect human jobs is to lower human

Re: Humans Need Not Apply

I think this piece misses some very important points.

1. Robots are tools. They are not competing with humans any more than a hammer competes with humans.

Robots are simply the marriage of machinery with computing. They are tools, [more]

Re: rich man making sense

BUT what the market is willing to bear is dependent on what the guy down the street is selling the same thing for.

It's also dependent on what the guy down the street can afford.

Re: rich man making sense

What happens to those folks that already make more than min wage? Do they get an increase too? If they get the same % increase wouldn't that make additional costs on all goods and services?

Re: More Europe Austerity Woes

Austerity means (or at least should mean), cutting government spending, not hiking taxes to maintain ridiculous levels of government spending. Speaking of which, government spending accounts for a whopping 57% of French GDP.

Re: Feeling Entitled

We have a blue can for recycle, a green can for organic stuff, and a black can for trash.
