    Sorry, but ... 1. Saying "I'll be greedy when others are fearful" is much easier than actually doing it. 2. The gulf between a great company and a great investment can be extraordinary. 3. Markets go through at least one big pullback every year, and one massive one every decade. Get used to it. It's just what they do. 4. There is virtually no accountability in the financial pundit arena. People who have been wrong about everything for years still draw crowds. 5. As Erik Falkenstein says: "In expert tennis, 80% of the points are won, while in amateur tennis,...

    ...The 4th of July is the the day when people gather all over the United States of America to celebrate their Independence. Fireworks light up the sky, families and friends will join to remember those who gave their lives so that the promises set forth in that Declaration of Independence could inform a new Nation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights - that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among...

But then I repeat myself. -- Mark Twain 4. I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and...

    Elective Decisions ^ | 06/07/09 | Chris Davis
    Rush Limbaugh has shown remarkable consistency over the years. Unlike the mainstream media, he has not wavered from his principles, nor has he sold out conservatism to get a Republican elected. Regardless of the odds, he keeps making his case every day to the American people. At Elective Decisions, he garners our full respect and admiration. And as the week long tribute continues, we’re posting Rush Limbaugh’s 35 Undeniable Truths Of Life once again to remind us of that consistency.

    rmn ^ | May 31 | Robert Hardaway
    Few politicians can resist the urge to exploit consumer angst over gasoline prices, and thereby deflect where the blame certainly lies — with them. Here are 10 things the politicians won’t tell you: 1. At over $3.00 a gallon, the U.S. inflation-adjusted price for gasoline in May 2007 is now less than it was in 1981, a remarkable decrease in price over a 25 year period during which real prices in other sectors, such as health and education have tripled and quadrupled. 2. This decline in the price of gasoline since 1981 is enjoyed almost exclusively in the U.S. In...

    San Diego Union - Tribune ^ | 10/27/06 | Editorial
    Just 13 years ago, Bill Clinton and Al Gore were exhibits 1 and 1A in the rise of the New Democrats – centrists who appreciated the need for a healthy economy and saw throwing taxpayers' money at a problem as both wasteful and a practice that would lead to voter distrust. And so we saw President Clinton defy the Democrats who then controlled Congress in submitting a first budget that was more concerned with fiscal rectitude than social engineering. And we saw Vice President Gore, in his finest moment in the public eye, demolish protectionist Ross Perot in a live...
  • Troops’ Written Wartime Observations Tell Personal Truths

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 13, 2006 -- About 50 authors, including current and former servicemen and women as well as family members, gathered in the Library of Congress's Thomas Jefferson Building last evening to sign copies of a 377-page book of their observations and experiences in the global war on terrorism. Navy Reserve Cmdr. Kathleen Toomey Jabs, 40, whose Navy officer husband deployed to Iraq in 2004, autographs a copy of “Operation Homecoming: Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Home Front, in the Words of U.S. Troops and Their Families.” For the book, Jabs wrote a fictional account about a military mother leaving her 4-year-old...

    John Lennon once wrote that "All you need is love." If that's the case, former presidential candidate Al Gore is a happy man. He is in the middle of a media lovefest celebrating his work, his career - even his efforts as actor, author, dancer and comedian. The former vice president has both a movie and a book about global warming debuting under the title "An Inconvenient Truth." He has gone from media darling to "the summer's most unlikely movie star," as NBC's Katie Couric called him in a May 24 interview. Gore, who Couric also called "funny, vulnerable, disarming,...

    Proverbial truths in translationMany well-known sayings originated in ancient Greece; some of their Englishcounterparts may have subtle variations BY MARK DRAGOUMIS THE GREEK word ÐÁÑÏÉÌÉÁ (in Latin proverbium) has an impressive pedigree. It occurs for the first time in Aeschylus' play Agamemnon (lines 264-5) written in 458 BC. Hesychios of Alexandria, a Greek lexicographer, who lived during the 5th century AD, wrote that a proverb (ÐÁÑÏÉÌÉÁ) is a statement useful to life, which is said by-the-way, along the road as it were, ÏÉÌÏÓ - meaning road. Another theory has it that the word originated from the short, sharp, epigrammatic slogans...
