I hope we've learned our lesson about investing in "alternative energy" companies.  Solyndra fleeced the taxpayers for half-a-billion.  They weren't alone.  Eventually, various "alternative" energy sources will become main stream.  But not yet.  They are terrible investments.  Chevrolet's and Nissan's electric cars languish in poor sales and poor performance.

For now, the "main stream" energy sources are cheap, plentiful and effective.  Fining, defaming, attacking and taxing the energy industry is not the way to make alternative energy viable.  Making alternative energy cheap, plentiful and effective is.

The fiscal cliff can has again been kicked down the road until March 1st.  The country has maxed out it credit card and Obamanation, aggrevated by "low information voters" who continue to put socialist knuckeheads into power want to INCREASE SPENDING again.  Lookit, people.  This cannot continue.  We have got to cut spending, and those that have proverbial lead in their asses...need to get off of the government teat.  I say let us go off the fiscal cliff.  Spending will then be cut and we'll deal with it.  Better than continuing to spend ourselves into disaster..like Greece!

One word: GRAPHITE.

The company: Northern Graphite, Symbol: NGPHF

Ya,,go ahead laugh,,,Graphite,,,Big Deal HUH....Yes it is....!

The very near demand for Graphite is Unbelievable. The demand is every where; the Battery industry, Medical, Solar just to name a few.

Have you heard of Grafhene; it is a single atom-thick layer of Graphite that is arranged in a Honeycomb shape. Also spherical Graphite is now used in Nano-Tech, the demand is very great.

China is locking down all of its Graphite an we really don't have it available to meet the demand.

Northern Graphite is about the only western source available that can build-up quick enough to meet that demand. The demand is NOW but they won't be producing until 2014 and they have the best graphite in the western world.

Get-on-Board, it is cheap right now and will quickly go 5 times it's present days value.

Do your own research, and you will understand what i'm now writing about. Best of Luck..!

This article shows a good title:...AN UNCERTAIN YEAR....



Republicans in Hell

While walking down the street one day, a Republican head of state is tragically hit by a truck and dies. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in." says the Republican.

"Well, I'd like to but I have orders from higher up.   What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," says the Republican head of state.

"I'm sorry but we have our rules." And with that, St. Peter escorts the Republican to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.   In the distance is a club and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him, everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, hug him, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at expense of the people.   They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster and caviar. Also present is the Devil (a Republican, too), who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are having such a good time that, before he realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a big hug and waves while the elevator
rises. The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on Heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

"Now it's time to visit Heaven." So 24 hours pass with the Republican head of state joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

"Well then, you've spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now choose your eternity."

He reflects for a minute, then the head of state answers: "Well, I would never have thought it, I mean Heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in Hell."

So Saint Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell. Now the doors of the elevator open and he is in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags. The Devil comes over to the Republican and lays an arm on his neck.

"I don't understand," stammers the Republican head of state. Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and club and we ate lobster and caviar and danced and had a great time. Now all there is a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable.

The Devil looks at him, smiles and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning.  Today you voted for us!"

I love it when these "experts" recommend stock when they are at, or near, their 52 weeks highs.  Take marathon, for example, why didn't Jubak recommend it when it was at 30 bucks, not at 61?

I love how some lefties (and righties) on these boards, like Vet wrote, want to just "kick the can" down the road, welching on debt, writing checks that the gov't can't cover, business as usual.  That isn't going to play anymore.  The 16 TRILLION in debt, (which BTW was caused by you dems lord and savior Noblaba, thanks to the bailouts, failed energy programs, job creation, and other disappointments of this administration), will HAVE to begin getting paid down NOW.  Tomorrow is NOT an option.  The "rich" and "superrich", even if their taxes DO go up, cannot burden the ENTIRE debt on their hands, thanks to YOUR lavish spending.  The "middle class" if it still exists, WILL see spikes in their taxes EITHER way, thanks to what I mentioned above.


Too bad though.  I would have rather seen John Q. Taxpayer get bailed out, than a multi-millionaire at AIG, GM, Chrysler, or Fannie Mae that got a BONUS for crushing their companies into the dirt...


Wake up Dems in america...

Borg Wargner, good company... but anything auto...  I don't know, razor thin margines need to sell a lot of units.

Hello all.
I have nothing much to add to the fray today.

Other than:

Smith Barney, they make money the old fashion way. Commissions!

Been out of the Market for over 5 years - did metals.

As far as oil goes, my grandma left me rights, so once a month a small check comes. My grandparents where smart it seems. Collected coins, property... Came here with nothing,

Shame these days we have a bunch of folks who want something for nothing.

The tax rates are going to go back to the Clinton rates. So what's the big deal - we had a nice fake internet boom bringing in $, so why not do it again now? 

I'm sure Obama will blame the Congress, when the Senate is sitting on bills to mediate this, so he can try and pass a rate cut to the middle class who will be hit by the "Affordable Health" taxes at the same time...

All is good - all is fine... ...
Dec 27, 2012 2:27PM

The economy's sliding back into a DEEPER recession (seeing we never fully recovered from the last one), it was a weak shopping season, and the fiscal cliff is all but imminent. 




Or, will the gov't buy them back when they fail like they are about to do with GM's?


Just saying...

"The price of oil hovered around $91 a barrel Thursday as U.S. political leaders geared up for another attempt to reach a budget deal to avoid the "fiscal cliff." By early afternoon in Europe, benchmark oil for February delivery was up 9 cents to $91.07 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Prices rose sharply Wednesday on higher U.S. home prices and hopes of a budget deal in Washington. The contract jumped $2.37, or 2.7 percent, to finish at $90.98 per barrel in thin post-Christmas trading in New York."


That would make TODAY and excellent day to seize the oil exchange and eliminate fools who invest in oil on the backs of woes that hurt the nation.

I like your post, Robin, it speaks the truth. America has been changed and hurt by the enactment of the Gramm Leach Bliley Act and the financial terrorism it brought on us. We don't need paper pressing button pushing millionaires and billionaires. We don't need drop-shippers. We don't need platform businesses that really aren't, they hide behind a brand tag and play in stock and bond markets. We don't need or want legalese and lobbied-laws. I think 2013 will be the year we call out bad business and get America back in the game by harnessing lame wealth and putting it to use as genuine currency. Invest where you live so where you live is a good and prosperous place. DC will attempt Fiscal Cliff correction today, why? I'd rather see them make a list of reforms and agree to expiration dates on making them. If they don't create the reform by the expiration date, they walk away so others can do it. Change will hurt us all... but no one will hurt more than the shiftless fool who made it on fake money falsely created to fund an Act of Terrorism-- the Gramm Leach Bliley Act. Stocks to watch in 2013... ALL OF THEM... as they are reduced to ZERO because they do us no good right now.

Why don't you stock-pickers make a new years resolution to actually do something of value to get money this year instead of shuffling pieces of paper back and forth in the government supported stock markets. There is no doubt that the stock and housing markets are the biggest welfare recipients in the history of the world. You may not want to admit the truth, but all you stock market players are on welfare right now.
