    • >>The one takeaway (not from the article, which dubs Zelaya a Communist and the Obama administration — not just Obama — Marxist) is that Zelaya is a Marxist (according to other sources). . . .<<

      That would explain Obama's bonehead support of him over the Honduran government and judicial system.

      >>All I can remember saying is that the weapons sent to Honduras (Zelaya or whoever) surely were to aid one side or the other and not as part of a law enforcement scheme.<<

      Do you remember that Zelaya is a Marxist? I didn't know that until I came across it in a letter to an editor. In trying to verify that, I found, via Google, this summary of Obama's and the State Department's efforts to decriminalize Zelaya and get him reinstated. The blogger does not mention the guns to Honduras, but Fast and Furious wasn't making news back in January when he wrote. The blogger (Glenn H. Ray) writes like a professional, not an amateur, but Zelaya is hardly current events, so don't take time to read it unless you are interested in an overview of the situation as it stood as of January. I'll quote just this part so you'll have an idea of the State Department's involvement and your Florida rep's attempt to stop it:

      <After their amateurish and myopic miscalculation, which exposed the Obama State Department’s lack of experience and incompetence, one could imagine the White House would want to avoid the subject of Honduras and Zelaya altogether. That, however, does not seem to be the case, as we learn from the new chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL).

      According to Ros-Lehtinen, she has received reports that the State Department is applying considerable pressure on members of the Honduran government to absolve Zelaya of his alleged crimes. In a letter earlier this month to Arturo Valenzuela, the assistant secretary of state for western hemisphere affairs, Ros-Lehtinen calls for an end to the coercion of Honduran officials by the U.S. government that is allegedly taking place:>

      No mention of Hillary in the article.

      The one takeaway (not from the article, which dubs Zelaya a Communist and the Obama administration — not just Obama — Marxist) is that Zelaya is a Marxist (according to other sources). Would that be a US Marxist's major impetus for walking guns to Honduras?

      All I can remember saying is that the weapons sent to Honduras (Zelaya or whoever) surely were to aid one side or the other and not as part of a law enforcement scheme.

      >>Ok, I should have said blatantly lie. Those are sort of misleading lies.<<

      It hardly gets more blatant than the difference between "folkS" (emphasis added) and "the person."

      >>Because he arranges his information to make you think things that aren't true.<<

      And on more than one occasion has seemed to arrange the timing of releasing his information to influence the performance of his focus-company's stock.

      This won't surprise you . . . Y would not allow your reply to this post to be seen. What did you do, sully 0's haloed reputation?

    • I guess trying to steal business by cutting cost to the point it isn't profitable isn't a good business model after all. They'll need even more money at the rate they are burning through it. My guess is that they will be a $1 stock soon! BK is a possiblity!

    • Maybe those insider sellers knew something.

      • >>Maybe those insider sellers knew something.<<

        On the LLNW board, for some while after Limelight's ER, some of the posters suspected Dan of either (1) intentionally hyping LLNW's price up so insiders could dump before ER or (2) unwittingly being used as a conduit for the same purpose.

        Given his blog's timing — exactly one week before Limelight's ER — those conjectures seem highly likely, especially when you remember his timing — exactly one week before Akamai's 2008 Q4 ER — when he announced that Apple was using Limelight for some of its content delivery. Dan had been observing that delivery by Limelight since "the fourth quarter of 08" . . . but DID NOT MENTION it until seven days before Akamai's 2008 Q4 ER.

        A DOUBLE 'coincidence'?
