Difference in personality , I guess ? I give people fish all the time. In fact I catch 'em, clean 'em and invite them over for a fish dinner !
Luck to ya. Gonna go catch some crappie today ! wooo hoooo !
Didn't think the truth would matter to you. Doesn't change a thing, natural forces are what causes earthquakes and that is all there is to it.
A well within a kilometer of my home has been FLARING gas for better than a week. What a waste!
Here's a recent article explaining what I told y'all last Friday. Also today on Quack Bowl, Mr.
Stork was discussing this very subject as well
The #$%$ frackers don't give a rat's #$%$ about the nation's aquifers and OUR drinking water. They've already illegally destroyed some here in California. NY has the common sense to BAN it. More will as chemical injections of carcinogens back into the earth find their way to a well near you. The issue of water supply is a whole other nightmare. Keep drinking the industry's koolaid, like all the other corruption in the USA.
cut the long-winded **BS** ! There's been quakes in Texas (another state OWNED by the industry) recently
ALL AROUND FRACK WELLS. Never before. cut the krap please.
I believe the USGS has determined that the process of "fracking" does NOT cause earthquakes. There is some evidence wastewater injection wells may be associated with earthquakes of
Smoke and mirrors friend. There doesn't seem to be anything you can believe now days. Nothing makes sense, nothing ! The only thing that is real is the squeeze they ( who ever they are ? ) putting on us little guys.
The world is in a mess. Our national debt has been run up to huge extremes and they brag how well the economy is doing. And the majority of people just keep drinking the koolaide ! We are in trouble.
I pay NO attention to BUY or SELL ratings. I just follow my gut iand then act accordingly. It has worked well for me over the years.
Mr. Dirt, tell me , just what do you know about earth quakes ? Anything ? Uumm, question, did earthquakes occur BEFORE drilling and fracking ? Well, of course they did !
Scientific reasons, right ? Yes sir ! Quakes have occurred through out the history of the earth, just like temp cycles in case you are in that crowd as well.
Why do the uninformed people always scream the loudest ? It might do you well to read some to learn some facts. First , earth quakes are caused by the same earth forces that create mountains. The simple explaination is " Plate Tectonics " . I don't won't to have to write a book here, you're not really worth it. The fact is , a truck mounted pump can not exert enough pressure to move the millions of tons of over burden above a average 10,000 foot hole enough to cause an earth quake. On the other hand, all the pressures and binding caused by the shifting of the earths plates, grinding and pushing one another can cause earthquakes and they do. Patterns can shift according to new stress build up given a change in the linkage of different stress origins and whaalaa you have new activity in different parts of the continent . I hope that is not to difficult for you to understand, if so, you can always revert to your six year old temperament and call me a moron again. Good day.
When they say sell time has passed to act and us little guys get burned if we follow late . Stock sells off on the open daily then is accumulated and recovers some of the losses . Seems to be in a range between 60 and 70 now . Dividend is considerable at $2.72 . Being retired needing income I have 15% of my holdings in Utilities and another 15% in oil after they have climbed from their original 10% . Needing the income I am reluctant to trim them . I have sold some of both along the way . In many ways it is easier to buy fear then just hold it . I find it confusing Buffet kept and actually bought more SU which I would think has high costs per barrel in the tar sands ? Saying he is highly levered already due to the railroads makes no sense to me . I would of thought he would of sold SU first . I wonder what he has in options because the option chains are very flat going out a long ways . Why not sell the stock and buy options a few years out and put all but a few bucks used for the call options to work where we are in the cycle . Obviously he see's DE and IBM . If storage is the problem effecting the price of oil and NG buying companies in that space and who make pipe would seem smart along with shipping if they ever allow non refined product to be sold outside the USA to where it commands higher pricing . Any comments ? I smell fear but it is hard to understand how the economy is picking up yet we have a glut of oil worldwide . In the US that can't export it yes but not worldwide .
Buffet sold most of his COP almost a year ago to buy XOM. He told his investors at he annual meeting that he had made a mistake buying to high. He did not for see oil falling like this. ( heck, who did ?) He is just trying to suffle his funds into something that might have a quicker gain.
It seems more than possible that Moody's downgrade is based on Buffet's "sell" announcement despite what they might say about "analysis". I have NO confidence in any of the ratings.
As you fall into atmosphere lack of oxygen will make your death painless. I just hate to hear all that SCHREEMING.
Buffet's Berkshire-Hathaway has not even beaten the S&P 500 the past five years. Go look it up. I tried to post the link just now, but it would not let me... if you can't beat the S&P 500 you aren't very good. You'd be better off buying the index than listening to him, or if you want to follow him, just buy Berkshire.
