  1. nice buying opportunity soon . sitting and waiting to jump in
  2. Darn tempted to buy back in today, at least partially. So...if I were to do so- which would I buy? "S" or "C"? Tough decisions here .

    I suggest using unspent Stimulus money to fund the bill.

    That way it will comply with PayGo, and everyone gets what they want with no additional deficit spending (on top and in addition to the Stimulus borrowing).

Another day down.

by James48843 on 04-26-2017 at 01:50 AM

Work day is finished, and it is time for a quiet evening alongside the blue Mediterranean.

The waves are gently rolling along the shore, and I sit on the balcony of my sea side hotel, tasting a glass of dry red wine.

These are the days to remember. I'm working in Israel, and have an ocean view room. I've spent the first third of my trip reviewing engineering data and manufacturing procedures at a key jet engine parts maker.

"Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President"

by James48843 on 02-06-2017 at 09:59 PM
Never in my life did I expect to see a headline like this:
From the German News Magazine "Der Spiegel":

Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President

Trump as Nero: Europe Must Defend Itself Against A Dangerous President - SPIEGEL ONLINE

I was lucky enough in my youth to spend 4 years serving in the United States Army in Europe- Germany, to be precise. It was a wonderful experience, and I got to learn a great deal about things European,

What America is all about.

by James48843 on 03-25-2010 at 04:34 PM
I just thought I would share this with you today.

I got an e-mail from someone I have known from meeting her 25 years ago. I first met her when she was a German local national who took a job as a secretary on the Army base I was stationed at in 1983. She worked hard every day for the year and a half or so that I knew her there before I left the Army. She gave me good information on the local things happening in town, and I learned a great deal from her about German life, values,

Bankers and the Economy.

by James48843 on 01-28-2010 at 07:27 PM
During the Great Depression of the 1930's, Congress passed a set of rules for banks that stabilized the boom-bust cycles that had plagued this country for years. Those simple banking regulations worked. And worked well. The 1940's, 1950's 1960's were all years of generally improving financial conditions. Even the inflation of the 70's, and the recession of the early 1980's was something that our country found ways to handle.

In the mid-1980's, banking regulation started to be dismantled
