Bloomberg - 30 minutes ago
June 30 (Bloomberg) -- Time Inc. said it will comply with a court order demanding the magazine publisher hand over documents that may identify the person who leaked the name of a CIA operative. The decision ...
Tough, tough situation. CIA operatives need protection, obviously. And while so too do reporters' sources, there's a fine line between giving up relevant and needed info and risking the lives of people for the sake of politics, which is what this case appears to be.

I was involved with 9/11 at the WTC. And, frankly, I just couldn't care less what the hell they do with it. Hurry up and spend some tax dollars and enrich some cronies and get on with it.

Canada to curb drug exports to US

Export to import to lower prices -- recall that this was actually a topic of debate in the Presidential election. And people wonder why I am so anti-partisan. That either party even considers any of this export to import to lower prices thing as anything but ludicrous just about says it all.

Its easy to understand why the US needs to maintain oil reserves. Without, the country could grind to a halt. Government oil reserves would at least allow us to fight over who got to keep their lights on and their cars running.

What I don’t understand is why we still keep $10 billion dollars worth of gold stashed in depositories around the country.

My suggestion, let’s sell it.

Let’s sell it a little bit at a time so that we don’t freak out the markets and decimate the price.

Let’s sell it and pay down some of this country’s debt. I know its just a dent. But in order to pay off a debt, you have to make the first payment.

Let’s sell it before some other country beats us to it.

Let’s sell it while the price is over $42 per troy ounce.

Just storing and protecting all of that gold has got to cost a fortune. Let’s jump into the 21st century and sell it all.

I love tech, I love stocks, and I love the market. I am however slightly discouraged at the very real prospect of $80+ oil within the next twelve months. Supply & demand rules in the end, and India & China are far from "last call". This market bull may not like it, but I think it's all but inevitable.

Still though, gotta love AAPL here! Rock on.
