    Very on topic because outcome can hugely impact stock market

    Time to give this topic its proper berth. I'm replying to your 4:01 PM post "Re: Pacific Crest's Chad Bartley on AKAM (topic evolved)" (234697&mid=235872) at

    The character count overflowed my prior post, so I'll ask here. In the scan in Corsi's article ("'The Obama code': Hidden messages in birth document?"), did you see in box 1a the word 'VOID' handprinted in uppercase letters immediately above 'BARACK'? The word is written so close to the name that the 'D' is higher in order to accommodate the height of the name's 'C'. Also odd, and not mentioned by Corsi (though I think I've seen it elsewhere), the 'CK' in 'BARACK' is noticeably higher than the preceding letters in the name, at least in that box. Can you think of an explanation for the 'VOID'?? This is the link to just that scanned detail:

    >>Interesting. Hard to believe that COLB he released has been accepted and seems to have settled the argument. Corsi raises a million questions none of which have been or are likely to be answered.<<

    How about . . .

      >>It was in the Cap, Cut and Balance bill they passed and sent to the Senate where Reid canned it. The BBA is the one way a current congress can constrain the spending of future congresses. Anything else promising cuts in the future is just propaganda. Boehner was just trying to get something passed to buy some time so he did a stripped down version.<<

      Somewhere along the line I must've identified the Cap, Cut and Balance bill with the Balanced Budget Amendment. I wonder if the pols themselves can keep them straight; they've been pulling so many shenanigans.

      >>Yes. I took that to mean the nasty stuff that's happening to the entire economy, e.g. unemployment, massive debt, inflation, consumer apathy, etc. I don't think he thinks Akamai is a bad company or CDN is a bad business.<<

      No, he likes Akamai, has for as long as I can remember. But when the focus is solely Akamai stuff, AKAM holders miss the macro point on which Akamai is forced to balance, and the result is they don't seem to comprehend Cap's message. As another fer instance, how many times have I posted that Akamai is not an island?

      >>No but I don't like that. It's as if the telcos had to keep a record of your every phone call in case the police would like to check up on who you talk to (they do that for long distance but for billing purposes not by government direction).<<

      Big Brother Evil has this nation in its vise. The wise men who authored the Constitution would be utterly horrified if they could see how gravely the country has fallen. And apparently not one spaghetti spine in Congress or in the military (except the likes of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin) is willing to actually honor his or her oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. In that area, all are treasonists.

    • >> . . . Why did he take it [BBA] out to begin with? Or was it somehow separate? . . .<<

      It was in the Cap, Cut and Balance bill they passed and sent to the Senate where Reid canned it. The BBA is the one way a current congress can constrain the spending of future congresses. Anything else promising cuts in the future is just propaganda. Boehner was just trying to get something passed to buy some time so he did a stripped down version.

      >> . . . captiva_sun2000 has consistently said Akamai's bogeyman (not cap's word) is macroeconomics thanks to our (my expletive deleted) government, not Akamai itself. . . .<<

      Yes. I took that to mean the nasty stuff that's happening to the entire economy, e.g. unemployment, massive debt, inflation, consumer apathy, etc. I don't think he thinks Akamai is a bad company or CDN is a bad business.

      >> . . . have you read anything about this "broadened ISP snooping" bill? . . .<<

      No but I don't like that. It's as if the telcos had to keep a record of your every phone call in case the police would like to check up on who you talk to (they do that for long distance but for billing purposes not by government direction).

      >>Yes and it looks like they'll get a Balance Budget Amendment inserted into Boehner's bill but Obama has already threatened to veto it. Doesn't matter, he'll have to accept something from the congress or get no ceiling raise. Either way the Tea Party wins.<<

      I was just reading about Boehner's adding the Balanced Budget Amendment to his bill. Why did he take it out to begin with? Or was it somehow separate? I spent about half my day yesterday getting some major repairs done on my car, so there were hours in which I couldn't read, and I still haven't caught up, not much with F&F, either. I did read that the WH Insider said, a few days ago, that the debt ceiling decision was already a done deal, that what was going on was just posturing, but the reports I've been reading don't sound like that. So maybe on this issue WHI jumped the gun with his assurance.

      >>Didn't read it but macroeconomics just means the economics of nations as opposed to microeconomics or the economics of businesses. Only a diminution of internet use can affect Akamai and that hasn't happened.<<

      So what's been happening to the US's economy is US macroeconomics? That's how I've been interpreting the 'macro' part. And giving credit where it's due, captiva_sun2000 has consistently said Akamai's bogeyman (not cap's word) is macroeconomics thanks to our (my expletive deleted) government, not Akamai itself. I haven't see anyone here picking up on that crucial distinction.

      No way is the internet destined for diminished use. In fact, have you read anything about this "broadened ISP snooping" bill? CNET's daily newsletter highlighted this today.

    • >>And now another horror, revolt within the Republican party, yesterday some were turning against Boehner's plan. Is that still true today? . . .<<

      Yes and it looks like they'll get a Balance Budget Amendment inserted into Boehner's bill but Obama has already threatened to veto it. Doesn't matter, he'll have to accept something from the congress or get no ceiling raise. Either way the Tea Party wins.

      >>If you read Akamai's CC transcript, you'll find the word 'macroeconomic' said at least twice, but about Europe, not, strangely, about the US. But how can our sabotaged economy _not_ have affected Akamai? I wonder what Limelight will report next week.<<

      Didn't read it but macroeconomics just means the economics of nations as opposed to microeconomics or the economics of businesses. Only a diminution of internet use can affect Akamai and that hasn't happened.

      >>The one that scored Boehner's plan as saving $1 billion and Reid's a few more billion? Essentially pocket change for both plans. I think even if they fudged neither plan can be worth spit for helping reduce the deficit. Frankly I hope they don't raise the ceiling and they spend the next six months in a fever of cutting government programs because they have no choice.<<

      That's what I want to see, too. But the Marxist has the government in a vise.

      And now another horror, revolt within the Republican party, yesterday some were turning against Boehner's plan. Is that still true today? Has any progress been made against that revolt?

      I see Drudge's banner is about the White House calling the GOP 'grinch'. That's a hopeful sign, the ad hominem attack indicates the Dems lack what counts.

      If you read Akamai's CC transcript, you'll find the word 'macroeconomic' said at least twice, but about Europe, not, strangely, about the US. But how can our sabotaged economy _not_ have affected Akamai? I wonder what Limelight will report next week.

      >>I don't want to believe it. Unfortunately everything points to that being the goal so I have to think it's so. I'm ready to accept any evidence to the contrary but it has to overcome an avalanche of data that confirms it.<<

      That 'everything' pointing to such a plan is overwhelming. You can tell a man by the company he keeps, so look at Ayers and Dohm. What was their goal? Look at O's Marxist record that you pointed out yesterday.

      What do you think of the CBO report? Did O try to influence the CBO back when he wanted Obamacare? I dimly remember he did. So I'm wondering just how believable its projections for Boehner vs Reid's figures are.

      I need to reboot. My computer's memory is clogged to the hilt.

    • >>PE, ever since reading the American Thinker article about Obama and the Cloward-Pivens strategy, I have not wavered in my belief that economic destruction of the US is, in fact, Obama's plan. Have you had any doubts about it?<<

      >>Boehners plan is a trillion in cuts and a trillion in raised debt ceiling giving them until next spring to come up with a genuine long term solution.<<

      Well, I don't like raising the debt ceiling even a ha'penny, but I can see what you were driving at yesterday; a spring rerun will keep the issue in the voters' consciousness. And judging by Drudge's banner headline and its subheads above it, the voters do NOT like what they're seeing now. Obama must be having 24/7 panic attacks.

      >>I think they don't want to [proffer a real debt-limiting solution]. I think their unstated plan is to drive the country into the ground with an impossibly large debt burden, destroy the private sector with enormous taxes then impose their own massive government socialist solution in a country clamoring for the government to save them.<<

      Mother always said, "Actions speak louder than words." And the Dems' actions have been _roaring_.

      >>What if that's [Victor Davis Hanson's observations of Obama's profligacy] all according to plan?<<

      PE, ever since reading the American Thinker article about Obama and the Cloward-Pivens strategy, I have not wavered in my belief that economic destruction of the US is, in fact, Obama's plan. Have you had any doubts about it?

    • >> . . . Was the one you read titled "Time to Fire Eric Holder"? . . .<<

      Could be. I just remember it was a Human Events article. I know I read that one I just don't know when.

      >>Today there's an even 'hotter' article along that line and involving higher up. . . .<<

      They'll be able to prove orders came from the very top, eh? I hope so.

      >>Do read further. It's mind-blowing!<<

      Whoa, Obama trying to throw the whole ATF under the bus. Can't end well.
