Why is this message board devoting its intellect on political matters ... this board should be about AT&T, and its prospects !!! ... Getting back to AT&T business, all indications are for a HIGHER earnings report, IMVHO, and it should send the price upward ... we shall see ...
If there is so much interest in T and why it can't seem to get out of its own way, they how do all the political posts so dramatically out number the financial posts? Are the financial guys scared to post? Are they at a loss for words to post? Are most of them just not interested in what rookie, wanna be financial guru's have to say?
A man stopped at a local gas station, and after filling his tank, he paid the bill and bought a Coke.
He stood by his car to drink his cola and watched a couple of men working along the roadside.
One man would dig a hole two or three feet deep and then move on. The other man came along
behind him and filled in the hole. While one was digging a new hole, the other was 25 feet behind
filling in the hole.
The men worked right past the guy with the Coke and went on down the road. "I can't stand this,"
said the man tossing the can into a trash container and headed down the road toward the men.
"Hold it, hold it," he said to the men. "Can you tell me what's going on here with all this digging
"Well, we work for the government and we're just doing our job," one of the men said.
"But one of you is digging a hole and the other fills it up. You're not accomplishing anything.
Aren't you wasting the taxpayers' money?"
"You don't understand, mister," one of the men said, leaning on his shovel and wiping his brow.
"Normally there's three of us: Me, Elmer and Leroy. I dig the hole, Elmer sticks in the tree, and
Leroy here puts the dirt back.
You see with the government sequestering, they are not buying any more trees so Elmer's job's
been cut ... so now it's just me an' Leroy.
