and obviously, this screaming stock market hitting all time new highs says nothing about the ETard, either.
However, I will still buy at $17 if it happens. And if there are buy out offers, they're likely right around that #.
A 12 year old buy out target ain't no target anymore. You are a long suffering long. I know the feeling.
"In an intensely awkward congressional hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday, freshman Rep. Curt Clawson misidentified two senior U.S. government officials as representatives of the Indian government.
The two officials, Nisha Biswal and Arun Kumar, are Americans who hold senior positions at the State Department and Commerce Department, respectively. Although both Biswal and Kumar were introduced as U.S. officials by the chairman of the Asia and Pacific subcommittee, Clawson repeatedly asked them questions about "your country" and "your government," in reference to the state of India.
"I'm familiar with your country; I love your country," the Florida Republican said. "Anything I can do to make the relationship with India better, I'm willing and enthusiastic about doing so."
Apparently confused by their Indian surnames and skin color, Clawson also asked if "their" government could loosen restrictions on U.S. capital investments in India."
"Businesses in a small Kentucky town are crying “socialism” after the mayor got tired of constant price gouging and opened a city-owned gas station.
According to The Associated Press, the Somerset Fuel Center was a hit with consumers when it opened on Saturday. It served 75 customers in the first three hours, and has been averaging about 300 fill-ups per day ever since.
Mayor Eddie Girdler said that residents of Somerset, which is a tourist destination, had complained for years about high gas prices, which the town estimated were 20 to 30 cents higher per gallon than surrounding cities.
So for less the $75,000, the city was able to open the fueling center, with 10 pumps and no frills. The station doesn’t sell snacks or do repairs.While the mayor expected to break even on the operation, he said that the goal was to lower the overall price of gas in Somerset. And it seems to be working. Nearby stations had already cut prices by 10 cents. "
"Remember how Republicans and their media allies were telling everyone to that under Obamacare their insurance premiums were going to skyrocket? Last April, Fox News offered this headline:
Survey shows ObamaCare sending premiums rising at fastest clip in decades
The story proclaimed that an 11 to 12 percent increase in premiums under Obamacare, based on a survey conducted by Morgan Stanley, was the “largest increase in decades.” But data from the non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation says otherwise.
On average, premiums increased by 5.9 percent in the employer-based market since the Affordable Care Act was signed into law. That is compared to an average increase of 4.8 percent in the five years before the law went into effect. Also worth noting, is that after a spike in 2011, the rate of increase in premiums has been lower every year. As for the claim that premiums are rising “at fastest clip in decades?” In the individual market, the annual premium increase the year before Obamacare took effect was 15 percent. In 2010, Kaiser found that individual market premiums increased by an average of 20 percent.
Twenty-two states have released data on premium increases in their state exchanges for 2015. According to the Health Research Institute, the average rate increase across those states is 8.2 percent. Louisiana is one of the two outliers (the other is Indiana), reporting premium increases averaging 19.3 percent. But worth noting in the data for Louisiana is this comment: “Louisiana is only reporting bids from insurers that are requesting 10% and higher rate increases at this time.” Is it possible that Louisiana is fudging their data due to the state being run by Obamacare hating governor Piyush “Bobby” Jindal?"
Good on you. he will take care of your basement for you.
Last weekend I found a baby rattler. He didn't get the same treatment. Too far from habitat to carry him back.
In his case, I'd rather have the rats.
"No insider buying", plz, what a crock. Show me the massive buying in the 9-15 range that should have occurred, given that we hit 25 in a very short timeframe.
insider buying predicts nothing about ETFC direction, nothing.
still dropping today! SCHW and AMTD have performed much better as of late. No insider buying at these levels is not good either. In facy we have only seen selling this year. Im still holding but not much further now that the 200 day moving avg has been breached.
Found this beautiful 5 foot rat snake yesterday , that had gotten tangled up on an old relic monofilament cast net, used as yard art. and when i say "tangled up" i mean this guy had gone thru more than sixty loops, and could not back out of any of them,
I dont know how long he had been there, but i had not looked at the net since last Sunday.
so when I first saw him I thought he was dead, basically had suffocated. so i tapped him, and he stuck out his forked tongue and wiggled it feebly.
the net hangs on an outside wall at about six feet high, so i had to get a step ladder out to get him down.
the activity and movement woke him out of his death coma, and he became a healthy
but very pissted off reptile.
took over an hour of trying to cut him out, and not get bitten at the same time. but by the end of the adventure he had calmed down and became very easy to handle. would have made a great pet,
but i let him go back in the basement where he prolly came from.
I havn't seen any kind of sine a rat or a mouse up here in the last three years.
so dont screw up a good thing.
take care, trade safe,
America doesn't agree with Fox, or republicans. LOL !!!
CNN asked a pretty simple yes/no question, following the same format they used for polls about Bill Clinton and George W. Bush:
Fox, after characterizing Obama as "bypassing Congress and acting on his own" in a previous question, asked this, which seems to take as a given Republican claims that Obama flouted the Constitution:
Despite Fox's one-sided framing of the question, the results of the two polls were strikingly similar. In this case, people turned out to be against impeaching Obama regardless of how the question was phrased. Just 33 percent of Americans in the CNN survey, and 36 percent of voters in the Fox one, supported impeachment -- about the same percentage who favored impeaching the last two presidents.
Wasting more tax payer $$$ is all republicans ever do !
are you referring to this consolidation at the 144 ema?
where we have bounced every time since April,? when this dog bust 25 again, she will be a 27 the next day,
and you will have missed it again.
c'est la vie.
man this yhapoo format truly sucks : , i didn't read your post, but just the headline when i responded to it.
Please disregard my last post, thanks.
By both our President and Europe. You expect this kind of response by the gutless and greedy European countries, but there is little excuse for Obama to cave like a cheap lawn chair after a innocent commercial plane is shot out of the air. I guess there were no Salvadorians, Guatemalans , or Ecuadorian illegal refugees on board of voting age. In response Putin is on the move again today as he knows Obama is little more than a paper tiger. Maybe if Putin showed up for one of those $32,000 a plate fund raising dinners Obama might take notice and work on resetting the reset button.
Putin's Measure of Obama
W. S. J. If you're one of those who thought the attack on a civilian plane with Russian missiles would change everything, or even something, you lost. President Obama wagged his finger on Monday, the European Union failed to impose new sanctions on Tuesday, and Russian-armed rebels shot down two more Ukrainian fighter jets on Wednesday. Vladimir Putin's war on Ukraine continues as usual.
The so-called Ukrainian separatists funded, armed and trained by Russia if they aren't Russians themselves took credit for shooting down the Ukraine aircraft, even as they deny firing the missile that destroyed the Malaysian plane that carried 298 innocents to their deaths. Ukraine's Sukhoi-25 fighters were hit near the Russian border and not far from last Thursday's crash site.
