They substitute Government dependency for personal responsibility, substitute theft and confiscation for charity, name calling for dialog, party loyalty over constitutional government, fascism for leadership, racism for well informed voting, socialism for free market competition and coercion for freedom.
It will be interesting since both main street and wall street have been ga-ga over the growth of "Core EPS" but the revenue is a bit light and certainly the bloom is off the rose after last quarter. $2.42 versus consensus of $1.98 looks darn good but operating cash flow is of course down 48% year over year with more 787 inventory build. They guided from $7.15 - 7.35 in 2014 to $7.90 - 8.10 but of the 20 line items in the FY guidance (units, sales for BA Comm, BA Defense, BA Capital etc.) only "Core Earnings" and Effective Tax Rate were guided up. So they are trying to tell us that the entire change to EPS guidance is book tax rate which nobody can model. I think it will be good enough for the closet indexers to keep plowing in, for anyone else the boom is still off the rose. My bet is that it doesn't go much of anywhere in either direction.
Why isn't BA up at least 5 bucks now after posting awesome earnings..

Not so fast. This might get to Supreme Court where one of the Bought off or Blackmailed Chief Justices can reverse the decision. They got to Roberts last time.
Hey BA-dolt, you're back -- where have you been? I've missed your stupidity, it's so very entertaining. Keep it up! :))
Sometimes a tiny piece of the material of the flying reading head can chip off the reading head and fall on to the disc surface. The head is flying extremely close to the surface and the fallen chip can be dragged across the disc surface thus causing the sctrach
“Several of those downgrades were driven by operating performance declines related to funding and reimbursement pressures, which may have been lessened by Medicaid expansion,” the Fitch report said. “Conversely, of the nine upgrades since Jan. 1, eight were hospitals in states that have expanded Medicaid.”
The federal government traditionally picks up a little more than half of the cost of Medicaid. But funding under the health law is unlike past efforts to expand Medicaid in that the federal government will pick up the full tab for the first three years. The state gradually has to pick up some costs in 2017, but by 2020, the federal government is still picking up 90 percent or more of the Medicaid tab.
It’s an important issue for the health care industry. While the Fitch report examined nonprofit hospitals, for-profit hospitals, too, aren’t seeing growth in states where Medicaid hasn’t expanded.
Health plans, too, are seeing an uneven impact to their enrollment growth. An increasing number of state Medicaid programs are contracting with private health insurance companies like Aetna AET +1.05% (AET).
“United Healthcare is seeing significant and accelerating growth in Medicaid,” UnitedHealth president and chief executive officer Stephen Hemsley told analysts and investors last week on the company’s second quarter earnings call. “380,000 more people in the quarter and 635,000 through the first half of the year. Coming from expanded access to Medicaid in about half the states we serve, the launch of Florida’s planned Medicaid expansion, and core program growth from already established markets and programs.”
A report last week from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Urban Institute described the coverage difference as a “gulf in percentage of people without health insurance” that is growing larger between states that expanded Medicaid and those that did not.
As of June, the report said 60 percent of the nation’s uninsured residents are in red states.
While record numbers of Americans sign up for the larger Medicaid health insurance program for the poor, financial issues are emerging for medical care providers in the two dozen states that didn’t go along with the expansion under the Affordable Care Act.
Reports out in the last week indicate the gap between those with health care coverage is widening between states that agreed to go along with the health law’s Medicaid expansion and those generally led by Republican legislatures and GOP governors that are balking at the expansion.
The moves against expansion are “beginning to hurt hospitals in states that opted out,” a report last week from Fitch Ratings said. The U.S. Department of Health and Human services has said Medicaid enrollment in the 26 states and the District of Columbia that agreed to go along with and implemented the expansion by the end of May “rose by 17 percent, while states that have not expanded reported only a 3 percent increase,” HHS said in an enrollment update for the Medicaid program.
We expect providers in states that have chosen not to participate in expanded Medicaid eligibility to face increasing financial challenges in 2014 and beyond,” Fitch said in its July 16 report. “Nonprofit hospitals and healthcare systems in states that have expanded their Medicaid coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act have begun to realize the benefit from increased insurance coverage.”
Already, the financial ratings agency said it has downgraded 10 health care entities so far this year and five of those were in states that have not gone along with the Medicaid expansion. Fitch didn’t specify the entities that have been hurt financially.
“Several of those downgrades were driven by operating performance declines related to funding and reimbursement pressures, which may have been lessened by Medicaid expansion,” the Fitch report said. “Conversely, of the nine upgrades since Jan. 1, eight were hospitals in states that expanded Medicaid
IF it wasn't on Faux Noise, it didn't happen. Otherwise the great steaming mass of yammering teabaggers wouldn't be polluting the air with it.
You keep yapping away at Hillary but I have heard nothing about Reagan and the Beirut bombing that killed 241 Marines and was blamed on "an inadequate appreciation of the threat" by the chain of command with the guards at the gate not allowed to have loaded weapons. Or 9-11 which killed almost 3000 people and was not stopped because the CIA and FBI weren't talking to each other and the FBI ignored a warning from one of their own about Saudis taking flight training in the US.
U.S. and other officials have said it appears the plane was shot down by a sophisticated surface-to-air missile in rebel-held territory. Evidence supporting that conclusion includes telephone intercepts and video of a Buk missile launcher traveling into Russia with at least one missile missing.
U.S. President Barack Obama, Cameron and others have said the pro-Russian rebels could not have shot down such a high-flying jet without weapons and training from Russia.
CG; a once admired All American that should have inspired one and all other Americans, continues his downward spiral because of a Bromance!
Pick it up Pyle...pick it up and stop being such a Dimwit.
How dare Pvt. C.G.Pyle degrade other Americans KIA!
