Oil priceCan we talk about oil? It just continues to slide and I was having a pretty good conversation last night regarding it.

King ObamaAll politics aside, how can liberals or Obama supporters not fully condemn this man?

Bloomberg.com = TrashSo I am about at my wits end. If I had my own BB terminal I would just read the news there, but since I don't I go to the usual suspects (Bloomberg, CNBC, ZeroHedge, FinViz). Well much to my dismay, Bloomberg.com has become utterly worthless. Basically a liberal mouth piece and cake news stories... 10 months 3 weeks
Gun Control Cognitive Dissonance People who know me know that I am a moderate and someone who rarely likes to touch on delicate subjects.

I have considered working in Austin or DC since I do have a few connections there. I still plan on going back to get a MA in econ first. If that does not work out, I will get a MSF.
