    Some stocks and their movers (1)

    PE, this thread has gotten way too convoluted, so I'm making it a new one. I'm replying to your 4:15 PM post "Re: The…“Health Care” mandate and Les Pelotons de Approche (1)" (201111) at

    >>They could just make that a law . . . the requirements are already in the constitution. Will they? Probably not while the Democrats are in control.<<

    IF (big big IF) this country survives to 2010 and we actually have a free (not controlled, manipulated, fixed in any way) election, will enough eyes have been opened by then to defeat the Socialists big time? And I mean the Socialists in both parties, not just among the Dems. The Repubs have their share of Socialists. Can you imagine . . . one lone Dem stood up to Obama and to his party and voted against HR 1388. If you want to remember the hero's name, it's Robert Berry of Arizona. Might his state being McCain's have something to do with it?

    >>Because everyone would want to stick their personal grievance into it, and everyone else would see that as some sort of infringement of their rights. It would lead to conflict. There is no way to narrow the scope to just some particular problem. The new constitution need not resemble the old one in any manner whatsoever, and frankly I don't think anyone today has the clarity of vision of the founders who were a product of the enlightenment and not addicted to political correctness, diversity, multiculturism, psycho babble and navel gazing.<<

    Ah. The fact that the new constitution could be totally anti-American scares me even more than a civil war with bullets traded in my neighborhood.

    I believe 'diversity' and 'multiculturism' are deliberate, purposeful products of our terrorist enemies, the ones who have planned for how long, decades? taking over the White House. The comment that made me applaud FSU President Wetherell's defense of Chief Osceola was (emphasis added):

    <''Florida State University is stunned at the complete lack of appreciation for CULTURAL DIVERSITY shown by the National Collegiate Athletic Association's executive committee,'' he said in a statement. 'That the NCAA would now label our close bond with the Seminole people as culturally `hostile and abusive' is both outrageous and insulting.''>

    When I read that, my grin stretched further than my ears. Side by side with Chief Osceola, Wetherell hurled his own flaming spear into the politically correct center of the NCAA.

      Revisiting . . .

      >>Ok, he'll control the groveling masses with stale bread, government issue cheese and Koolaid. :-)<<

      I just discovered I'd lopped off your smiling face! It must've been because you reminded me of the French Revolution (the guillotine). . .  Paper or plastic?

      >>Ok, he'll control the groveling masses with stale bread, government issue cheese and Koolaid. <<

      LOL The French Revolution all over again. You can have the Koolaid, even if it's grape in a condensation-coated pitcher with a smiling face. I have a crusty baguette for lunch (with a salad) waiting in the kitchen for the butter to get soft. But *sigh* what am I looking at now? A Friendly's ad featuring a fat burger stacked with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and something unidentifiable under the top bun half. Darn. Why does Yahoo post ads like that at lunchtime?!

      >>That [frying] evaporates water too. We live on a water planet. The evaporation/clouds/rain cycle is the dominant atmospheric system and it pretty obviously is dominated by negative feedbacks which keep temperatures in check or we would have had runaway heating at various times in the past. According to the global warmists that should have happened especially during those times when atmospheric CO2 was higher than now (i.e. during almost the entire history of the earth). Instead we have had periods of glaciation. CO2 is not dangerous, it is plant food.<<

      Hmmm. It must be water that cools body temperatures, too. The human body is more water than anything else. So the global warmists are trying to fight their fictional global warming with heat. Makes a lot of sense if you include nonsense.

      >>I think he has a broader goal than that. Its part of a general effort to demoralize America 'we were so evil for waterboarding people' etc. <<

      Has anyone mentioned to him the terrorists' favored torture mode . . . a cut (literally) above unemployed caterpillars? Does he actually believe people have _zero_ perspective? that everyone is devoid of basic reasoning?

      >>Same with the economy, the bailouts, capitalism in general. Tear America down then remake it in your socialist image. I doubt he actually wants to weaken America. Who wants to be king of an impotent nation?<<

      Oh, that's right, like the old grade school joke that is actually a truism: "You're boss, I'm nothing. You're boss over nothing."

      >>All part of the same plan. Once he hyperinflates the wealth of the nation away, he can control the groveling masses with soup and sandwiches.<<

      Not to make his plan look good, but have you ever tasted pea soup to which white wine has been added? It's a gourmet dish. And I can make bread so good that Dear Leader might just grovel for some. I even used to make my own yeast. That was after I lit the house with candles made from tallow dripping from hand-twisted strings. (You'd better not believe that last one.)

      Yahoo must be suffering another bout of insecurity. For the past few weeks Yahoo seemed relaxed, but it deleted two of my attempts to post my last post, did the same thing a few days ago, and blocked another attempt to the extent that I just gave up and used a different avenue. And I've been noticing number gaps indicating other posts are missing. Have you experienced any problem with Yahoo?

      >>As a greenhouse gas heating up the planet. However, water vapor is a much more powerful greenhouse gas. If they're going to control CO2 they should have to control anything that evaporates water . . . e.g. most factories, steam heating systems, water used for cooling, agriculture, lawn watering, cooking, etc. <<

      Imagine the EPA telling people they can't steam vegetables, can't use a pressure cooker, can't boil anything, can't wash dishes in hot water, can't take hot showers . . . telling doctors' offices and hospitals they can't sterilize, can't allow people to use vaporizers when they're congested . . . to be consistent the EPA would have to outlaw Old Faithful. And instead of using water in cooking, people would turn to frying. Have you ever seen the hard deposit on surfaces from daily frying in oil like Orientals do? If anything is unhealthy, that imperviously hard deposit must be.

      >>I think there's a good legal case there that would point out the absurdity of controlling CO2 (an essential plant food). <<

      And without plants, from where would we get oxygen?! I agree, I'd like to see someone sue the EPA and publicize those facts. If allowed to continue some of its agenda, the EPA could kill off plants, animals, and people including themselves. Hmmm . . .

      >>The kicker is that the mechanism by which it supposedly wreaks its havoc is to cause a small amount of direct warming which then evaporates water which then causes the majority of the heating.<<

      Isn't that their rationale? to try to mitigate their mythical global warming? Nothing like trying to cool off an environment that has entered a cooling cycle.

      >>Sorry about the loss of your friend.<<

      Thanks, PE. She's my father's cousin. She gave me a lifelong gift when I was in a "Land of Counterpane" situation for a couple weeks when I was a child, she taught me a skill that gave me hours of enjoyment then and ever after. We had a number of happy times together, but that was the most memorable. You never know when you do some little thing for someone how memorable it can become.

      >>I think he must be paying off his leftwing supporters. There was absolutely nothing to gain from those disclosures. If he didn't like them he could just quietly have made them off limits.<<

      You don't suspect his intended gain was a weakening of US defense and a strengthening of the terrorists' offense? The terrorists' leaders can now train their troops in accordance with those disclosures. Or will it be easy to devise replacement techniques that the Justice Department lawyers will approve?

      I'm just now reading a couple articles (by Newsweek and Fox) about what led up to the disclosures — a lawsuit by America's loyal ally the ACLU versus various officials warning not to make the information public. The techniques were used to try to prevent future 9/11s. One of those interrogated was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and the CIA did learn details of a plot to crash an airliner into Los Angeles. (Remember when Khalid was captured and the leftists on the AAPL board hated that victory by US troops?! What kind of people want their own country to suffer defeat by terrorists or by any other enemy?) The Fox article suggests Obama voluntarily released the information to avoid being forced later by the ACLU, as Justice Department lawyers projected would happen. But I do not buy Obama's "transparency" defense. If he _really_ cares about US government transparency, why does he forbid that it begin with him?

      >>I still don't know. Obama is clearly as hard left wing as I thought, but I'm not sure if his foreign policy bloopers are treasonous or plain old ignorance generated incompetence shot through with playing to his choir.<<

      How do you view his closing Guantanamo and his inviting Hamas enemies of Israel to come here, at taxpayers' expense ($20.3 million), to live, and his threatening our ally Israel with punishment if it bombs Iranian nuclear facilities? At some banquet a few years before the election, Obama reportedly sided with the Palestinians and derided Israel. He has made obvious his loyalty to Muslims. And he's clearly been trying to destroy our capitalist economy and take control of it. All of this while paying his three teams of lawyers about a million dollars to block information pertaining to his eligibility to be POTUS and to threaten lawyers who try to gain access to that information. Then there was his order to replace "Hail to the Chief" with Sting's "Desert Rose" which contains Arabic lyrics that, according to a Gateway Pundit poster, translate to "I realize that things are not what they seem." Even all of those can add up to ignorance generated incompetence, but after his highly organized campaign replete with disguising sources of his campaign contributions, and his alleged years-old connection with the lawyer who wrote the treatise deriding our Constitution (laying the groundwork for a NON natural born American citizen to be POTUS), do you find it easy to believe he's as innocent as he'd like people to believe?

    • >>It's impossible for me to understand how the EPA can get away with declaring carbon dioxide a threat to human health. . . .<<
