Uh, hm, So Selling calls against stock you own is work?
So the money I invested when I didn't see my wife or kids for weeks at a time and now provides a return is a handout?
You should know better than to go there.
Instead of taking the low road, may I suggest you continue to post about things you sound smart about.
Leave your social angst in the toilet and instead of complaining about how someone made money,take your money and send it to the folks applying for Pell Grants.
Then, someday they may design a new yehaw message board that works.
Or,at least be able to read it.
Never claimed the intellectual work attendant writing covered call options against stock is the same as manning a pitchfork, but I'll put my four decades of service to the military service against anything anyone here has to offer, and that includes Mitt Robme, whose five sons never saw anything but a Boy Scout uniform, and Oblamer, who was running whatever in Chi town. Sixteen hour days in a button down suit just don't impress me like 16 hours wearing camouflage in the old country or the Middle East, cutting back to the tent to take some AF or CLEP courses to beef up my MBA. Got that damn gun oil all over my textbook too.
I could be wrong. Never claimed office or the identification with the masses, which as you imply, make great Soylent Green patties, if tough to swallow.
My only candidate was Ron Paul, who didn't make the cut.
I was just talking to tactics by Oblamer. As far as I am concerned, the only thing either can do is reel in spending, since tax rates are the most favorable in the world here in the US, and business is not responding by hiring under a carrot only scenario--back in the day, we had the stick of 70% marginal tax rates, and folks got hired because they might do better by a co than giving Uncle more than 2/3rds the next marginal dime.
Sometimes all pleasure and no pain makes jack b business, a complacent spoiled boy. As the most famous man in the world said: "I don't always drink de Kool Aid of borrow and spend, but when I'm faced with two idiots and no reprieve, and de same spend spend spend of other pipples monyah? I pick
Stay deaf dumb and blind, my friend.
1-I was simply pointing out, do not begrudge him on the dividends he reaps in from money he earned. We do the same. And if it was earned while providing service to our country,it ain't enough,no matter how much it is.
2-I respect your service to our country with no ifs, and, or buts.
3-One of our candidates respects our military & folks on the ground more than the other.
4-We can vote for one or the other or do nothing. I do not believe they are the same.
5-There are leaders who love and respect our flag and country.And then there's one who kisses the ring of an arab sheik,and knowingly pulls security away from our Libya mission in a time of need......and covers it up.
Stay well and continue to do what you do!
And I promise to continue to be a pin head.
methinks you missed his point, which was that Obama left untouched several wide-open opportunities to attack - did he do that intentionally, keeping dry powder, or was he just asleep?
Neither. I didn't miss the point and The Prez wasn't keeping dry powder or asleep.He was himself, without a teleprompter. He is NOT nearly as sharp as folks think.
And if you thought he was sharp against McCain, think about that. I like the Senator but debating him is akin to debating a stone.
The President is treading on thin ice.
The economy sucks.
His view on geo politics has left 4 dead at our embassy in Libya.
And 4 more years will leave our Naval forces using wooden ships.
He doesn't have much of a leg to stand on and if he goes on the attack, he'll look angry.
That's how he comes off,and his handlers and he know it. They were praying for the Mitt Romney who made a couple of guffaws the press uses for first page fodder. Except, the Romney who is a old time "Investment Banker", schooled in making presentations showed up.
It's Obambam who is out of his league here.
When they gather at Hofstra, Bambam will have a friendly crowd and when Latisha from Elmhurst asks how each guy will give me hope for the future, he'll do just fine again.
But at the moment, Michelle is asking whether they need to start packing up the dishes........
you guys are funny! debate is over, Obama did poorly and not by design, he is a good speaker, not debater, yep he needs the teleprompter...I expect Ryan to do well too, he loves arguing!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
On the issue of why give a chit, you have hit the nail on the head--the situs of relief from the current economic malaise doesn't come from either candidate, which is why there is no reprieve. But unlike aluminum, gold and silver do respond to degradation of currency, and for the record, neither tweedle dee or tweedle dum address the problem of print print print brought to you by the banksters. Those pinning hopes on Oblamer are whistling the wrong tune, and those that think Romnuts is the answer haven't a clue.
In effect for gold and silver, since Obama shows more penchant for costly social solutions to problems nobody elected him to solve, like healthcare, he is the best candidate to drive borrow and spend to the stratosphere, and is therefore IMHO bullish for gold and silver.
I defer good or bad for business or the country which relies on these philosophical differences to the who gives a chit pile.
