    We are getting closer to the default seiling and a lot of people think the GOP will fold and find another thing to use for holding the US hostage. I would not rule anything out.

    What would you call someone who purchases products and services from a business and then when that business asks to be paid, the answer is: “I am not going to pay you and there is no way you can make me pay you”?

    A THUG !

    Well this is the kind of thuggery that the Teaparty want’s the government to commit. So the question is whether the United States of America is a thug? According to them the answer seem to be yes. So are they right, or do they simply have no idea of the values of this proud country?

      It is mystifying to identify what is conservative about insisting that you won’t pay your bills.

    May I suggest to the readers to check for the standing/rating/evaluation of universities and (community-) colleges the listing provided by The Washington Monthly:

    http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/college_guide/toc_2013.php

    My preference is the “Best Bang for the Buck Rankings”.

    Good luck on spending your money on the education of Junior!

    While stratēchery is a little over the top in it’s bind love for the 5C, they have a point.

    Apple has an amazing brand. So much so it will sell 5Cs at super high margins. Way higher than Motorola (Google) or Samsung.

    While I personally won’t pay an additional $300 for the same quality phone (as the Nexus 4), many people will.

    That’s why I own the stock. Cash flow. It’s OK to be number two in volume, especially if Apple can command such a huge premium for it’s product.
