I am a long, and I am always grateful to knowledgeable investors who generously share information to help all of us to make money, and learn how to be better investors.
I have noticed a preponderance of low level political discourse that has nothing to do with Ford or investing.
I am sure that one argument against what I am saying is that politics does determine PPS and other factors in the life of a publicly traded company, however my observation is that the type of political posts that take up too much space are not of a quality that merits anyone's time. The political dolts abound here and have run roughshod for a long time. The preoccupation with "Obama" "dimocrats", and this one,"COMMY SENATE", are not conducive to anything except prolonged argument. This board can become useless if we have to give over to juvenile name calling and the stuff and nonsense that these Left and Right dolts espouse. I am calling for a return to informative, helpful posts from those that have been absent due to the take over by the nut cases on both sides of the political spectrum.
As I have posted previously, if someone claims that little green men in the trees watch them and experiment on their dog, they are likely to be committed. But if they claim that communists in the trees watch them and experiment on their dog, they are home free. That's political speech.
Several of the id's are simply raving and may be armed as well. I don't know if their neighbors know about them, of course. But they are being exploited by raving radio like Rush and so on. They are also being exploited by Web sites and organizations bankrolled by our crankier billionaires. There was one in Texas who bankrolled the Swift Boats organization and may have bankrolled the "birthers". There was nothing spontaneous about either of them as we were to believe.
That sort of thing may seem just odd to most Americans but goes over in Texas and other parts of the Confederate culture area. But the nuts just get sucked in and take it all up as a somehow legitimized way of life. If one of some id's postings would thoroughly frighten any neighbor if they read them or contain death threats or what have you let Yahoo and local police handle it.
Before the recent elections I didn't mind arguing about political topics. But the election is over and what's left here is mostly debris washing ashore. These guys have no idea what "communism" is - arguing with them is like kicking a homeless man muttering in the street. "Ignore" is the remedy.
