    Re: Ms Wyyysoccer

    My posts on this board were solely meant to repudiate egregious remarks made by bowtie in post #5522. Specifically, bowtie advocated killing innocent people with bombs. I have a problem with that kind of sentiment, which is exactly why I have a problem with people like Osama Bin Laden.

    In your post you said: "I do not believe any Americanis is favor of using overwhelming military might to kill innocent people."

    Read post #5522 and see if you still think that's true.

    In answer to your question, I am in favor of dealing very harshly with terrorists, both at home and abroad. Unfortunately, bowtie (and subsequently others) used this forum to advocate actions that are terrorism by any dictionary's definition.

    In my opinion there's a reason why America is the greatest country on earth. It's because we stand for ideals such as freedom, democracy, rule of law - ideals that are wholly opposed to terrorism.

    • I don't undertsand your logic - you own the stock, but yourn disclosure is that you want to sell? I ask you again, my good man, what other investment do you have that is better than good old Branch Banking and Trust?

      Do you bank there? If so, you would not sell.

      RW - what have you been up to old man?

      Readum - what have you been up to young man?

      • Doc, you ask what I had been up to. I can say I am up to to many pounds for a fellow almost 76 years young. I do like to eat and take full advantage of my wife's good cooking. I play golf two or three times a week (weather permitting this time of the year)

        I am still active as a member of the county EDC and TDA boards. We just landed a new industry for the county that will provide 300 jobs in an area badly hurt by the loss of textile jobs.

        I try to meet with the locals at the drug store two or three times a week for a cup of coffee and good conversation.

        I spend more time on this computer than I should. I have always enjoyed photography as a hobby. Now with digital photography I have a whole new concept to play with. Also spend a great deal of time on "ham" radio talking to people all over the world.


        DOC! thanks for asking and again it is good to have you back on the board.



      • Doc -

        It's all about the return. Why hold a stock I "like" if I can trade it and increase my yield? Doesn't mean I don't like BBT - I would never buy a stock I didn't like on fundamentals just to try and "play the market". I have too high an opinion of the investor community. (I almost thought this logic wasn't working until the dot.bomb cycle finally reached reality.)

        So, I think $38 is a good sell opportunity based on the logic (?) that BBT's historical trading range will drop the price down again and make a purchase at a lower price a possibility (this assume no major problem contributing to the drop). I guess this is playing swings in the overall market to some degree, but - Hey - it seems to work for me. If you've been reading over the last year, you've also seen me indicate "hold" and "buy". BTW, selling short is also an option, but I prefer to have cash available instead and transaction costs are so low now, that is not an issue.

        And yes, there are other good investment plays out there when I'm in cash after a "sell a little bit" sale, which I have taken advantage of. I use other "names" on boards of other investments because I don't think you should mix the Boards up, but you may see my writing style (?) under other names on othe Yahoo boards I frequent.

        Hope that helps you understand the method to my madness.



      • Certainly not spending any gains on tech stocks. Actually, I have been playing as much golf with my kids as possible. When I see an eighteen year old hit the ball 280 yards it makes me feel NOT YOUNG.
        Anyway, the very best to you,Doc, during this CHRISTmas season and beyond.

    • OK Wysee. I'll give you that AND stand corrected---SOMEWHAT. . .the abhorrent bombing of innocent civilains simply for the sake of bombing them is clearly not correct. Note: Im NOT saying it's wrong......and no I wont advocate it. I do like Bowtie's suggestion in one sense-however. I like the idea of slapping a 2000Lb. JADAM into the Homes of those 'innocents' who have harboured/raised/assisted terrorists to include but not be limited to Suicide bombers.This would include their families. They are more than willing but without the means to do so to us. Did you know...? Saddam was givin away bonuses to those families who sacrificed one of their own as a suicide bomber? Hmmm...this rings of selling yer kids for prostitution. Send a kid off to 'Heaven' and get rich!!! {yes Im going to throw up...}
      'innocent' or not - - that's NOT innocent.
      I definitely agree with Pick-up - and yeah - Ive been there.Mankind Is the cruelest animal on the face of this planet. I also have to still insist that we live in the free-est, greatest country on the face of the planet. And until these idiots started lobbing planes around - it's borders were open to them, too.
