Nope. Does not mean they can't.

It takes a visionary lime Jobs. With someone like that yes. Otherwise we've hit peak Apple ... Company life wise.


There is no substitute for Steve Jobs. Elon Musk is considered the next Steve Jobs, and may do even better by transforming how we create and use energy. However, Musk does not work for Apple. Apple keeps up with evolutionary changes better than it's competitors. That alone is enough to keep Apple spiraling towards being the first $1 trillion company. A revolutionary new product would propel Apple to unknown heights.
If Apple was to take over control of Tesla, with Musk still holding the reigns, we could see a synergy of Biblical proportions.

Who knew the Apple employees were all part of the 1%, since the Dems claimed only the rich 1% would benefit from the new tax bill Trump signed.


Sniper, nobody said ONLY the 1% will benifit from the tax cuts. They will benefit the most. They pay 24% of federal tax yet are getting 45% of the benifit from the tax cuts.

Do note i did not say Federal INCOME tax.


The indirect benefits to the middle class is their 401K going up. Even the poor who don't pay taxes are getting raises and bonuses.
It's a win for society as a whole.

I don't believe in being PC when describing evil barbaric hordes. The truth is the best.
Sharia laws come from a shithole. Fuck them.
Islam comes from a shithole. Fuck it.
Mohammad is the mother of all shitholes. Fuck Him.
And fuck the shithole terrorists, and the shithole assholes who support them.

We don't have the crazy loans anymore. We have loans that must meet excessively tight underwriting conditions.
We don't have principal balances going up anymore. We have principal balances declining, especially with the 15 year fixed.
We have a ton of equity in our homes.


Any idea how many new home buyers are going 3.5% FHA for loans? One report says over 35% of new Millennial buyers are going this route. They're underwater the day they move in. Almost 25% of all home buyers are going 3.5% FHA. They have no equity or cushion, even if housing just drops 10%. Plus they're stuck with MIP for the life of the loan and many are getting approved at 43% DTI levels.

The average down payment today is barely 10% across all purchasers. The days of 20% down are long gone.

That's not a healthy market.


With a 3.5% down, I agree you are starting out at a negative equity for all practical purposes. These low down payment homes have always been there, but the big crash happened after 75 years. They are not the primary cause of defaults. They go through full documentation unlike the 1% loans we had with no qualifying, which caused the the housing collapse.

"Let me be clear, there are large parts of this that are a result of the tax reform, and there's large parts of this that we would have done in any situation," Cook said.

So this was all planned prior to the tax reform. Except for repatriation of all that cash to pay big, juicy executives bonuses


I'm sure that is right. With sales growing, Apple would have invested and created more jobs. However, with the repatriation of all those billions, Apple will be creating even more jobs, not to speak of the $38 billion check they will be sending to the treasury.
I don't understand why you guys refuse to acknowledge this is a good thing? What good is blind political loyalty when you cannot accept the good Trump is doing?
It's best to be an independent like me and tell it like it is.

Exit polls from the 2016 presidential election show that only 4% of black women voted for Trump while 13% of black men voted for him, according to CNN.

Broken down by gender, Trump's support from black women has nearly tripled from 4% to 11%, while his support from black men has nearly doubled from 13% to 23%.


Looks like Trump is doing better for the Blacks, than Obama. The secret lies in capitalism, not socialism.

Solar.

On track to be cheaper than fossil and solve the problem nicely.


Already there in some regions of the world, and in many states in the US. Solar panel costs continue to drop with innovation and manufacturing volume.

I can name one, I call it Liberalandia. It's a fantasy world that liberals imagine they'll live in if they just vote in for more socialism.


Ok. Fortwayne managed to come up with one, even though it does not exist in the real world. Thank You, Fortwayne.

1. We don't know if the accusations are true. Anyone can make accusations.
2. If true, who the hell cares? If you want a perfectly moral President, vote for the pope.

I doubt if the Pope was ever perfectly moral. He must have masturbated.

You'll have oppressive heat in the summer time, but there are plenty of pools and water parks to compensate. When I lived in Monterey, I wore a hoodie 95% of the year because it was cold most of the time. Only a few days a year where it actually warmed over 70/80.


I won't move there if the homes were free. It's in the 70's and 80's out here in North San Diego County, in the middle of winter.
Actually, homes here are free. Because they appreciate at a greater rate than mortgage interest rates. What a deal.

"An empty mind is a devil's workshop" The whole world would become a Detroit.
In reality, we would have robots doing most of the monotonous boring work. Humans would work at jobs that require brains. The lazy and the stupid would just watch re-runs of Oprah all day long.

WaPo reports that global warming has peaked.


Fossil fuels has peaked. Fossil energy is steadily being replaced by clean energy.
The chances of fossil fuel surviving is ......Zip Zero Zilch.

https://gofossilfree.org/the-truth-the-fossil-fuel-industry-doesnt-want-you-to-know/ The future is not looking good for the fossil fuel industry. The rise of renewable energy and climate policy agreements have created a tipping point marking the end of the dominance of hydrocarbons. Despite the claims that our energy mix can’t function without it, everyday there is news of the closing of coal mines, oil companies moving out of projects, and increased uptake of renewable energy. Dirty energy is no longer profitable for profit nor planet.

It's a ridiculous question. Who on here is demanding a socialist society in the way you mean?

A lot of people still think a pure communist/socialist system is the way to go. Just ask Bernie Sanders and his supporters. On Patnet, probably Dan, Jazz, Hey You.

anon_1fe2e says
hat, however doesn't mean there aren't benefits to implementing parts of other systems. Look at healthcare in the US. Public transport. Care for the mentally ill. The homeless. The elderly. And on and on it goes.

I would generally agree, but not for most of the homeless, who like being homeless. You failed to mention education. I support free tuition for all, all the way to PhD, because I consider education as a necessary investment.

Patrick says
But also, capital has managed to take all of the productivity gains away from labor:



Interesting graph. I can think of 3 reasons why hourly compensation lagged productivity.

1. Illegal immigration that competed with hourly unskilled labor that technology tends to displace.
2. Low wage countries like China and Mexico that displaced manufacturing with imports.
3. Most of the benefits of technology going to those who create technology and those qualified to handle it.
---------
This phenomenon will continue for several more decades. Raising minimum wages is the only way to counter it.
