and slam me for investing in an American company. If I had to defend you people again, I would not. America has become a disgusting civilization.
I was employed by two Japanese company Panasonic and Sony. I know Samsung does employ people in the Irvine area. All the Apple product manufacturer in China. Apple us to be anti Microsoft. Still don't know why being in the Persian Gulf for 7 years matter much about this stock. Who built the weapons for you to defend the oil company? You got paid to go to the Persian Gulf? It is went there and work there for free. Sending your to the Persian Gulf is costing me money. Maybe if we spent more time building thing , then blowing up stuff it would be a better world. Everyone is on this board to make money. $$$$$
The worst thing, is USA is running huge deficits, yet we're spending $35 billion a year to pay for our troops in Korea and one of our Fleets offshore to defend them from Communism. Meantime Samsung and other Korean Corps are so rich they bought majority of Superbowl Ads this year. PLUS SAMSUNG HAS ITS PHONES MADE IN VIETNAM COMMUNIST SEMI-SLAVE LABOR camps (at $0.40 an hour, alot less than Apple pays in China $2 an hour). WHY CAN' T SAMSUNG / KOREA PAY FOR THEIR OWN DEFENSE? BRING AMERICAN TROOPS HOME.
You do not know that Korea pays the 93 percents of the whole cost of the USA troops in Korea. Besides the cost, USA uses Korea for the sake of the USA politically and diplomatically. You cannot value those benefits. As soon as the USA troops leave Korea, China and Russia will make the day their national holiday. In fact, many Koreans want the USA troops to leave the country because the troops are headaches for them-murders, rapes, and other crimes against the people in Korea.
Conrad...thank you for your service! Don't let the naysayers get you down. Most of them are generally strung out, over leveraged gamblers who do about as good in the stock market as they do at the casino.
