    We're calling Gordo Fred now? that'll make is head hurt.

    The short answer is they do pay income tax on it, if you're talking about the break being real estate taxes. If you let them off the hook for $10 in real estate tax, income is credited, goes up, by...

    I agree the comparison is unfair in that you can apply a lot of smarts and knowledge in stock picking that you can't with a game of chance. What I was thinking more of was the casino makes a fortune...

    Likewise, which is justification enough (within person risk tolerances) and TA has been a long term interest. I just haven't figured how to make money at it. I mentioned what I see as the best ways...

    Yes I see you were referring to a situation moving sideways vs dispute the bias overall of the market, I did misread, apologies.



    I think there's still a bias. Without knowing anything more...

    The pro approach is to hedge. If you're bearish on a company, thats what you want to trade, not a short into rising tide (which yes is undeniable, over the long term). You short the stock and go...

    I don't know what you are doing, but equal risk is almost impossible is there is undeniable upward bias to stock prices. I suppose the shorter the horizon the less its relevant, but its still there....

    On that we agree.....quite a while ago I decided to get my stock wholesale.

    It might depends a little on conversation, short can simply mean bearish/a seller or it can mean a short position - selling something you borrowed.

    Short positions by themselves are risky but are...

    Its suppose to work in the opposite direction, smart people are suppose to be more aware of what they don't know. On tests, low IQ people consistently over estimate how many they think they got...

    baloney. It should be obvious we're talkiing the sales tax on a value chain of a good/service making its way to the consumer, not income tax, real estate etc. There is no sales tax on sales tax the...

    that would lead to lots of problems, you get tax on tax. All of sudden you'd get all kinds of behaviour designed minimize transactions instead of maximize supply chain efficiency. VAT or our...

    exactly how I make it.....or did, French roast has become hard to find. The big green coffee co discontinued it. Stupid buggers. Italian is close and the next best

    Ouch, a double whammie. I once beat up 3 guys with 2 punches lol

    Of course they are not extinct, I doubt there are many Americans who aren't, by and large. They just don't know it due to the (usually insightful) continuous misuse of the word :)

    how so? Its certainly disrespectful, impolite mean and nasty...to start with. I haven't been following this very closely and you know I'm hardly a Trump fan, but I'd like to understand why its...
  17. What are you making these days? Some fab shop pics from our place

    Not a management issue, more just showing some of my pride in the team....here's a couple of current projects just finishing up. A medium size box girder crane and a lugger truck body. Apparently...

    well thanks that....and on disagreeing, I just haven't had enough time with you yet :D

    I'm not talking about open legislated and equally applied fiscal policy. Its this selective corporate welfare - selective as in one company hand picked over another. Like Ikea getting real estate...

    That part about this escapade that the bothers me the most is the notion "if you don't like it you can leave". its a buffoon statement dismissing all social progress since say feudalism; as if not...

    Partially....and partially because of offered incentives. Corporate welfare = bad. Want to give business a break? Do it transparently on an open basis and on an equal playing field.

    or question whether they want to work for someone who comes across like a 14 year old.

    What I want for Christmas is a world where this didn't need to be explained. But it does and we're too old to believe in Santa so the perpetual shit show will continue.

    The LA Times hints fairly strongly it was a pending union drive. It doesn't sound like a nice place to work so now people won't have to suffer that burden any longer. Not if you're from that town...

    sure, but hand wringing over transfer prices is as old as the hills. All that really works is 1) create a positive business environment so and industry actually opens there (France is a disaster...
