Exerpts from news article:
The State Department will “extend the government comment period on the Keystone XL pipeline, likely postponing a final decision on the controversial project until after the Nov. 4 midterm elections,” Reuters reported.
The decision of whether or not to approve the northern leg of TransCanada’s pipeline, connecting the tar sands of Alberta to oil refineries and export facilities in Texas, will enter its sixth year in September.
Bold Nebraska director Jane Kleeb said that the Nebraska Supreme Court will likely not issue a decision on the case until about January 2015. She also noted that South Dakota’s permit granted for the pipeline would expire on June 20, 2014 — meaning that TransCanada would have to reapply for a state permit after that date.
I wonder how this will impact the Kinder Morgan refinery project now under construction in Galena Park, Texas?
Welcome to the FRO message board davidgolioth10. I doubt that you will deter the religious or political conversations, but you can easily tune them out by ignoring certain posters or simply avoiding subject titles that obviously have nothing to do with FRO stock issues.
By the way, what is your investment view of FRO?
Thats nothing. Rogere misplaced his last bottle of cheap Ol' Rotgut [still $3.99/ qt. He has been posting incessantly on craigslist under lost and found [in contrast to his incessant postings in the M4M section.] I suppose we shall have no peace until the 1st. of the month when he receives his welfare check and can replace it.
All one has to realize why Cheney wanted a war.His Company, Halburton made a mint and what was his compensation as a previous CEO of Halburton. Oil OIL was the name of the game. I hope he rots in Hell
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Rogere, I think you're right. Europe has historically been made up of people with strong ethnic identities who , because of the constantly shifting official boundaries, may or may not currently be in the country with which they identify. Putin is taking advantage of this to gather together his Russians. Probably the best example is Czeckoslovakia which we Americans thought of as one country but the inhabitants were always aware of who were the Czechs and who were the Slovaks. To their credit, they were able to settle the matter without shooting at each other by dividing into two separate countries.
Gentleman I great respect you need to debate and discuss religion. I would like to respectfully ask if you would consider using your emails to discuss these matters. I hope you would consider that the people who use these boards are trying to make a living and discuss investment views.
lakeed....So what do you think about someone who labels entire groups of people as haters (or racists or teabaggers) when they have no personal knowledge of or relationship with them? Beyond dumb is right. It's called prejudice and you are one of the worst on this message board. You might become a preacher someday.
I see you are new on the yahoo message boards clay. Sometimes it helps to click the "flag" button to ignore specific posters. That way you won't get overloaded with their ramblings if they annoy you.
Seriously, too many tools with too much opinion on matters unrelated to FRO. Rest of us don't give a rat's turd about your opinions or beliefs. Just know that you are essentially annoying spammers like the ones that call you at 6pm when you're having diner with the family.. take it elsewhere.
The fact that YOU are admitted racist, Rog, does not mean that every other white is an unconfessed racist.
You seem to want to hold everyone else accountable for YOUR sin. They didn't stand up to stop you - to tell you that it was wrong. So it is THEIR fault.
Sorry pal. It doesn't work that way.
rogere, I hope you get to see 4 bucks soon, especially if she drops back below 3.50 so I can reload before the 4 buck pop. Good Luck!!!
rogere, let''s not forget who started this entire conversation accusing the GOP of racism (read your heading), which is a continuing (and wrong) accusation by yourself and lakeed.
It is YOU sir, who keeps beating the same silly racism drum and pointing fingers at the GOP when it is YOU who has the racism problem. Get out of your rut from 50 years ago and realize that TODAY racism is a quickly fading memory that is only kept alive by the likes of YOU and folks like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. If you drop it, I will be happy to drop it also. If you persist, you will continue be outed as the racist that you admit to being.
scs I do not know if the "facts" I stated was were you grew up in or not. If so and you think you were above those facts then you were a law breaker and not a good Christian since one was the law the other the doctrine of the day.
I freely admit that back in those days I was as much a racist as the great majority of those in Texas who were white. I also admit that I have had to overcome that terrible failed logic of the white race in the Southern states were Jim Crowe and the bible was used to inflect insult and injury upon a race of people whos "crime" was being non white.
You are a desperate man to try to use the sad truth of American White History in the South as some sort of Democrat thing. No GOP in the South was against Jim Crow or stood up in church and said it was wrong.
It was sadly a White Race thing. If you want to stand up and say that you were not a follower of that kind of thinking and law that's your right to do it. Racism in ones thinking has influence which must be fought fresh ever time confronted. As long as person does not Act on the racism and defeats they are not racist in action and like a member of AA is a non drinking alcoholic they admit and battle one day at a time to stay that way.
You getting a silly as grumpy in your post I guess the right brain thinkers run out of everthing but being silly.
It is indeed silly that of all the racist post that has been made on this board you have NEVER called those who made them RACIST if they agreed with you or voted right wing like you. That is truly sad.
jersey I think we look at things through US eyes only but the truth is that before there was a USSR there was a part of the Ukraine that was mother Russia. Hitler took back areas of Germany that had been lost to her because of WWI and the world saber rattled but was in the end ok with that. The first step he took into non historic Germany was the beginning of WWII. I think Putin is no dummy. While he might like to "get" all of the Ukraine I believe he knows that the cost would be disastrous from an eco point of view for all of mother Russia. He got his black sea part and the part that was historically Russia and to be honest the majority people of that region wanted to be Russia again.
FRO is indeed tied to the politics of the Ukraine but that alone is not the only reason to invest in FRO just a bonus. They are more players in this game than Putin as the Ukraine itself must come to the reality that it is better to lose some than lose it all. If Russia decides to "take" it all there is not much that EU or the US can do to stop as War is off the table. Calm heads are needed in the Ukraine to accept that fact and work within that reality. If they do then I think Putin will take his winnings and wait at the table for another "move".
scs can't ever disagree with making some money on a trade. I just sorta made up my mind to see 4 bucks.
I think the "deal" worked out between Russia and the EU over Ukraine has "eased" tension some and thus the need for tankers to move needed lost Russian oil is at present less on the radar. However like all "agreements" we will see if this one holds or not.
Suez rates really dropped today and I think that is the "agreement" showing up. If you believe that the Ukraine situation is not settled and Russia will not behave themselves then I would buy on a drop as FRO will benefit from any heavy eco reactions against Russia. I do think the EU will bite the bullet and put the sanctions on Russia if they do not honor the agreement. Germany has changed its position on Russia and Merkel will pull the trigger if Putin does not do as promised. A women scorned is something that even Putin better realize is serious business.
wow a racist answer from rje what a surprise. Again pure ignorance by the pure racist mind. Bad logic expands as it is processed and with rje the process has been going on most likely all his life.
Crime rates don't matter he claims. Now that one is well thought out isn't it. Every city in the US and every state and the federal gov. ALL track crime rates but rje has declared they do not matter. All hail the mind of rje. The real facts are that what the brit police lack in fire power from GUNS they more than make up for when it comes to the laws of the land and the mind set of the English people. They are not as concerned about "privacy" and rights since they do not live in fear of their Gov like rje kind do.
If you rje are really so dense that you believe that in Merry ole England there is not to be found areas like
Detroit or backwoods America (I know you don't believe their is pockets of white criminal activities in America because you don't believe in crime stats) then you are wrong. The thing that the bad guys know in Brit that has been lost in America is that if the Brit police NEED to use Force yes even Armed response Force it will be
effective and quick. Their legal system also need not bother with the same kinds of restrains that the USA legal system does. You withhold information from the Brit police or not cooperate then you will be taken down to the "Nick" for a visit and if all they can prove is you lied to them your visit will be longer and if you lied and concealed you may as well of done the crime yourself. The Brits have a lot more serious criminal justice system of which the police decides when it starts and to whom it starts for. You have an illegal gun or fail to alert the police of someone who has an illegal gun your looking as serious time.
They are lots of violent criminals in England and they do indeed use guns. They simply are smart enough not to encite the police by using them against coppers.
very true skidude, for US refineries. Increasing production of domestic crude will probably have as strong of a downward impact on shipping rates as the upward pressure due to the end of spring maintenance.
Do you think there will be a greater impact on shipping rates now than there was at the end of the Chinese New Year?
I am ready for FRO to settle into a nice trading range.
that's typically when refineries finish spring maintenance and start production for the summer demand.
