The commonality we can all share on this board is our interest in LINE as an investment. It's a waste of time and energy to discuss politics, religion, etc. because those are mostly views held deeply based on what our parents and grandparents taught us to believe (in most cases) and not because of any special skill or knowledge any of have acquired over time or possess.
Depends on the level of maturity of the individual.
Our Founding Documents are taken from Reformist Theology. It is both Faith and Logic. It can and should be understood both ways.
A person can not be our Founders American Patriot if you are hostile to our National Philosophy and religious teaching which is consistent with it.
Marcarcal, it's ironic a right-winger would comment on mental functions. The top 5 states for post-graduate college degrees are Massachusetts, Maryland, Connecticut, Virginia and New York. They voted for Obama. The bottom 5 states are Mississippi, Louisiana, North Dakota, West Virginia and Arkansas. They voted for Romney.
Several polls and analysis done on data from presidential elections dating back at least a decade show that the higher the education level, the more likely [voters] are to vote Democratic.
An example is CNN’s 2008 national election exit poll of almost 18,000 people, 44 percent identified as college graduates. Of those college graduates, Obama had an 8 percentage point advantage over then-Republican presidential nominee John McCain. Of voters with a postgraduate degree, Obama had an 18-point advantage over McCain.
A recent poll from the Media and Public Opinion Research Group found that 43.5 percent of College graduates with a Bachelors degree vote Democrat, compared to 30 percent who vote Republican.
Whoever said that was obviously not capable of expressing him/herself intelligently. Name-calling is a tool used when one is incapable or unwilling to coherently express one's opinions or beliefs. Most people reach a level of maturity by about the age of ten, after which they don't feel the need to insult those with whom they disagree.
Can't completely ignore politics with linn energy. Most of the natgas producers are struggling with peristent low natgas pricing. Smart Political leaders would have realized in 2007 that the country had the opportunity to become self sufficient for energy by the end of two presidential terms. BUT Obama the two faced liar was too dumb to understand what was going on with shale fracking. It took him almost a whole presidential term to even say Natural Gas.
Look around at whats happened to a number of companies. Chesapeak, Sandridge. Kevin Kaiser would not have had a leg to stand on if energy self sufficiency was made a national priority. Fortunately private industry despite Obama is progressing on Self Sufficieny, BUT it could have been done much faster with the right type of support. Instead we get Solyndra and batteries.
who can blame anyone for being "political" today. This shutdown is going to affect everyone in some way. I am trying to root for both parties to come to an agreement. Pointing fingers gets nothing done. After watching the movie "Lincoln".... I don't think anything has changed. Its a process. Many times a painful process. Still better than what other countries have.
I am just glad the WE all have invested in oil/nat gas.... as no matter what goes on in Washington this country needs what these companies have.
Stay focused Linn Energy....!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I am still amazed at the venom coming from the right. I'm a moderate/liberal democrat. When I disagree with you, I will tell you why. I won't resort to childish name-calling or dig up bumper-sticker slogans to express myself. Can't you people behave in a civil manner?
