Yeah, the Fed keeps making noise like they want to start raising rates. I don't think it will ever happen. Our current economy will roll over without the 0% interest rate teat to suck on.

Eventually, the QE going on in Europe and Japan will force us to follow suit with more QE.

Enter the currency destruction race to the bottom.

Single parent families are the biggest detriment to performance in school and performance in life.

No amount of government meddling will change this fact.

I just don't understand some people. Someone that creates jobs and pays lots of taxes like Lynda Weinman is reviled by some people as evil and selfish. Yet a leech like Barry Cappello who blackmails the taxpayers out of $600K is portrayed as a hero.

Yes, in the mean time, she created jobs in Santa Barbara (or Carpinteria), paid rent on her building, paid money to local companies for services and paid lots and lots of taxes. But you want to forget about all that and focus on the fact that she's rich and others are not. She didn't take the money she made from others, she created it. Do you know how much money Zuckerberg paid in state taxes when Facebook went public?

But I know, you prefer the European model of government dependency where companies like and Facebook would never have existed because no one would take the risk to build them because there''s no incentive to do so.

It's amazing the grudges people carry over things (very bad things) that happened 100 years ago.

Even in Santa Barbara the feelings were still strong not too long ago.

Good point Denise. Why should gas taxes and auto registration fees be used to pay for bike lanes? Bicycles should be registered and taxed as co-users of the roads, especially if lanes are specifically created on their behalf.

I guess Davy condones hypocrisy then.

Let's also not forget Pelosi's diplomatic trip to Syria in 2007 against the wishes of President Bush.
