    ONE DEFINITION OF INSANITY: The Treasury Dept. continuing to finance long-term budget deficits with short term debt instruments (bills/notes) when long-term interest rates on government bonds are at, or near historic lows.

    The Bartlett article on the hypocrasy of the GOP is hilarious! They blame the Democrats for the low-income people people who don’t pay income taxes (even though theypay a boat load in Social Security and Medicare taxes which get used to cover the deficits … and sales taxes etc…etc…) on the credits that the GOP gave them! While they shout ‘class warefare’ when Democrats want income taxes to rise back to the Clinton rates (you can’t include the 3% Medicare tax on upper incomes if you don’t count them as taxes for the low income folks, GOPers…} Then stand silently when rich pay no taxes!

    Can anyone explain why Mark Hulbert isn’t a mega billionaire yet? Is he secretly rich? If not, is he too lazy to implement any of his observations and statistical analyses? Or is it possible that his amazing correlations are relatively useless from an investment perspective?

    What’s the point of posting a Home-Price Scorecard with data from December? CoreLogic has been positive the past two months, and the latest Case-Shiller decrease is half of what’s listed there. I suspect all the other numbers have been cut in half (or better) too.

    Facebook losing its cool with the younger generation who like mobile apps and prefer more private connections without the parents watching. If it becomes known as a “mom thing”, I believe fickle youth will abandon it like they did myspace.

  9. Ya, that home price scorecard is outdated. The most updated is here from June 4th (using March data) http://blogs.wsj.com/developments/2012/06/04/home-price-scorecard-a-turning-market-but-which-way/
