FaceBook IPO Shenanigans = ENOUGH!! F**K the Washington\Wall Street Nexus!!

Cash Out of your IRAs, 401ks, and Mutual Funds. Invest the money in Credit Union CDs.

Teachers Union here dont care for the Students or what they do to poison its Students

The leaders of the union that represents the Teachers in the Chicago Board of Education is telling that they might go on strike because they want the teachers to get a 30% increase in their pay over the next two (2 ) years. The Chicago Board of Education is over $700 million in debt already.

Early 1980s company's could access pension plans

I remember hearing on the radio, in the early 1980s, that companies could now access pension plans. They were prohibited from doing that before that time. I remember thinking: well, there go the pension plans! Does anyone remember what laws were passed that permitted that to happen?



Obama’s JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley rip off the public with insider shenanigans on Facebook IPO.

Obama is too chummy with Wall Street and especially Jamie Dimon

Senate Banking Committee found to be wholly owned subsidiary of Wall Street.

Richard Shelby and JP Morgan, case in point.

Report Shows Financial Industry Gave $41 Million to Senate Banking Committee, Spent $344 Million on Lobbying to Influence Financial Reform

Questions about Bain and Blackstone Private Equity firms

If Bain Capital and Blackstone are the hideous beast Hartmann portrays them as, please help me understand a couple of things.

Why has it stayed in business for nearly 30 years? Truly terrible companies fold after a few investment mistakes?

Why are many of the individual investors in Bain and Blackstone union pension funds? For that matter why are there any investors in these horrible companies?

ONE of the best shots I ever made

Vegans beware, I am making a point. Mitt wants to get with TED, His HEAD is the same size as PRESIDENT OBAMA. This shot was with a 20 caliber airgun at 130 yards. I aimed 6 feet to the left and 6 feet HIGH. Right between the eyes. Dead Mourning Dove (tastes like LIVER)

So I went to a gun store to renew my FOID card and HAH? For $14,000 I can get a 50 caliber sniper rifle. Tell me $10,000 CASH wouldnt work?

It would be alot easier than the MOURNING DOVE SHOT!

Please, I VOTED FOR OBAMA- I am pointing out- WHO NEEDS A GUN LIKE THAT?

PE and VC

Tom - Somehow my message on VC and PE got deleted so here we go again. You are right about PE firms and how they operate - though PE firms do ask partners to participate in investment funds they manage so its not as clean as you present. More importantly ONLY Angel investors match your description of a good investor risking just their own money. VC firms raise investment funds just like PE firms and also invest their own money in them.

Where is Donald Trump's Worldview Leading Us?

I want to step back a little from the constant strum of the latest Trump scandal to the most recent outrage, the Trump constantly popping into the news literally every day. I don't remember this during the Obama administration or any other presidency frankly of my lifetime.

Every day they look for some way to get in the news even if it's negative.
