Yeah, I was starting to wonder if you were around. Not a bad day but I'm heavily weighted in the BABA camp (BABA, YHOO, SFTBY, KWEB) and that waned into the afternoon - - up only about 1.1% DOD. Along with BAC only up 1.6%, that put me well under the maket indexes. Translates to a lot of scalar increase but I feel a little bad when I don't keep up or pass the indexes (shrug).
All pertinent index futures were up nicely by the European open but have waned by 6:00 EST. Anything can happen, today (shrug). I'm going to continue to avoid hedging into year end but we will see what happens.
The president of prestigious Smith College is red-faced and apologetic Tuesday for telling students on the Northampton, Mass., campus that "all lives matter."
Kathleen McCartney wrote the phrase in the subject line of an e-mail to students at the school, whose alumni include feminists Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan, former First Lady Nancy Reagan and celebrity chef Julia Child. McCartney was attempting to show support for students protesting racially charged grand jury decisions in which police in Missouri and New York were not charged in the deaths of unarmed black men. Protesters have adopted several slogans in connection with the cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, including "Black Lives Matter." McCartney's more inclusive version of the refrain was seen as an affront that diminished the focus on black lives and racism.”
racism and climate nonsense is all the left cares about anymore since they let Gruber destroy healthcare and let Obama create huge wealth disparity while massive amounts of people work part time for nothing or have given up
You low info idiot Dr. Ball is a respected scientist. From wiki
Ball has published a number of peer-reviewed papers in the field of historical climatology, most of which pertain to reconstructing temperatures in Canada during the past several centuries.
Grab your duffel bag, it’s about to be filled with money. (Just google) Ultimate Stock Alerts! They pick winners, pure and simple
Er No!! Who would refute climate change? Its been happening since the dawn of time. The Alarmist Far left's view of it . Well yes definitely that view is ludicrous with very little influence from any scientists only from political activists. You can pretty much replace the White House reports on this subject with those straight from Greenpeace!!.
I agree with his post and shows how arbitrary arguments are. You are only responsible for your own actions. This nanny state self pity political correctness must stop its pure nonsense
Ironically, Change Catches Up With Climate Change Alarmists in Lima
Guest Blogger / 5 hours ago December 18, 2014
Guest opinion; Dr. Tim Ball
The outcome of the Conference of the Parties (COP) 20 in Lima was ironic, which is defined as “happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement.” The tragic thing is, there is nothing amusing about the damage being done to climatology, science, environmentalism, economies and worst, people’s lives. However, it was totally predictable. It’s also inevitable when you predetermine an outcome, both economically and scientifically, in a world of feedbacks. As my grandmother warned, “Your sins will find you out”.
Organizers struggled to come up with a communiqué. Why? Mostly, it was because they had to justify doing nothing, or worse, appearing to fail. But failure was inevitable, given the history leading to that point. They continued to accept without question all the lies, deceptions and failures of previous gatherings of the COPs and the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). They bypassed the corruption, collusion and malfeasance carried out to produce false science, as exposed in 2009 by the leaked Climatic Research Unit (CRU) emails. They ignored and deflected from the continuing and growing gap between IPCC predictions (projections) and reality. They had to keep the politicians and media fooled, to ensure continuation of funding.
At the last minute, they cobbled together a four-page document that simply, in today’s cynical political phrase, they kicked the can down the road. They did what most political meetings do; they met and agreed to meet again. It is what politicians always do, regardless of their politics. As Soviet era Russian politician Nikita Khrushchev said,
(more at the great climate website whats up with that)
“Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.”
Odd...a right-winger like you is paid by a certain country that has quite a history of human rights violations AND communism. That would make YOU quite the hypocrite little z.
Southern Democrats....who are now Republicans. Or were you under the impression that all those Dems moved to the north and the Repubs moved to the south?
You've been repeatedly taken to task for your stupidity. Must I do it again? You are really boring. If we wanted to hear a dumbed down spin of whatever Ugly Greta said today, we could just tune into whatever Rush vomited up today, or Ann Coulter, or Hannity, or a hundred other brainless schmucks that make a living regurgitating each others' sub-human waste. Your dumber than a dumbed down version of the same is truly pitiful.
It looks like the sheeple here are being mislead by the media. Obama and the US government didn't have a choice but to lift the Cuban sanctions immediately because currently the US is at war with Russia. Why do you think the price of oil has been crashing since June? Perhaps, because it has been engineered to crash by the West together with the Rubles.
The Russians were planning to use Cuba as a military staging ground to launch their nuclear-armed cruise missiles warheads just 90 miles away from Florida. So, the US government had to do something to immediately counter the Russian move.
"The Russia-Cuba agreement was announced May 16 when a memorandum was signed in Moscow establishing a joint working group between Russia’s Security Council and the Cuban Commission for National Security and Defense.
The security agreement comes amid fresh U.S. intelligence agency concerns that Russia is taking steps to follow through on plans to conduct strategic nuclear bomber flights over the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, possibly with the help of Cuba and Venezuela.
Russian official recently held discussions with both governments about the use of airfields for Russia’s Tu-95 nuclear capable bombers, known as the Bear H. The bombers have been conducting large numbers of threatening flights near U.S. coasts in recent months. "
The Tea Party is a politically radical front group created by and funded by the Koch brothers. Their agenda is one of political extremism with a serious dose of perverted Chritianity thrown in to appease the lunatic fanatics. They are just as extreme and just as politically and religiously perverted as the Taliban. No difference. The far-right trash on this board never stops promoting racism and extremist sedition, and they support the same ideology as Timothy McVeigh who did in the past exactly the same as the Taliban does in the present. ALL of you far-right extremists are ALL traitorous trash deserving of the maximum penalty for treason.
HOLLYWOOD (KCNA) — The Revolutionary Artists Committee of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Scientists are happy to announce that His Excellency Kim Jong-un will host the 87th annual Academy Awards. This will be the first time a supreme leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has led the ceremony, but it most certainly will not be the last.
“All peoples celebrate Dear Leader’s most humble decision to host the Oscars,” said Sony Pictures Chairman and CEO Michael Lynton. “We have witnessed his strength and honor from afar and welcome the divine opportunity to explode our love in his presence. To obey Dear Leader’s magnanimous offer to host the Oscars is perfect joy, all of his resources and talent coming together on global stage.”
Lynton helped redesign the iconic Oscar statuette, shortening it by about 4 inches so it would not be taller than His Excellency, Kim.
