All the hatred and bias we see on this board also exists in our general society. We need to respect each other and do our best to work together. Those who spread bigotry and hate fuel the fire that leads to sick people doing terrible things. In the Middle East they kill each other over religious differences. In our country, mental illness and hatred along racial and ethnic lines seems to be the cause. With assault weapons, body armor, and other weapons of war readily available, things could really get deadly very quickly in our society if reason and justice don't prevail.
Turns out that Christie's personal lawyer had it. Christie said he had no idea where his phone was and basically implied the government most have lost it. Now how did Christie's personal lawyer get Christie's phone? It would appear to me that Christie must have given it to him. When did Christie give his lawyer the phone? Did he give it to his personal lawyer when he heard a subpoena was on the way? Now Christie brags about his US prosecutor's experience. Sounds to me like he was trying to conceal evidence in a crime which is under federal investigation because it disrupted interstate traffic for a number of days for political reasons. Trump has selected Christie as his right hand man and possible VP candidate. Sure looks like Trump has bad judgement because Christie seems to be in way more trouble than Hillary. A good prosecutor, someone like Comey, could very likely show that a crime was committed, there was intent to conceal evidence, and that there was lying about the existence of the evidence. If Trump has any credibility, he should give Christie the bum's rush.
Trump is his own worst enemy. He knows nothing about the workings of government, and his election could turn into a frightful disaster.
A few bad cops caught on tape killing blacks can cause a lot of damage. Minnesota Gov. Dayton said Philando Castile would be alive if he were white. Watching him die on the video his girlfriend took was very difficult to watch for anybody with a heart!
You can make the list 18 as Fraz has been buying the dips of CTIX. I own it also, but I admit I am down at the moment. If you check the CTIX board, Fraz has been buying all the way down. I believe he bragged it is one of his biggest holdings.
Reportedly a young man who served his country in the Middle East. I guess he just snapped because of all the killings the last few days. With our growing culture of violence, hopefully our leaders try to do something, anything, to try to address all the hatred brewing in our country. Very sad for all involved.
My younger son got me interested in GE when it was in the single digits. I bought a little later as the Great Recession pretty much took a big chunk out of my funds. GE is one of my biggest holdings, and I love the fact that they are no longer a SIFI. They can raise their dividend, buyback shares, and freely make acquisitions. When I was fully invested in biotechs, it was pretty tough to sleep many nights. I bought a boatload of financials when they passed the first stress tests, and I just let them ride. Most are up big, and the only one that has languished made a big acquisition that should play out long term. I own a lot of OPK, and smaller investments in CTIX and BRLX. I am under water on all three, but I still see long term potential.
My money is on Flake. I hope he doesn't grab Trump's mop because I would hate to see what's under there.
Fraz, here you go with the bravado thing again! Give it a rest. You hide behind your computer or phone, and act like a tough guy. My guess is you are a fat dude with bad knees whose wife #$%$ slaps you whenever you lose the family money in the stock market.
Your claims are absurd. You make yourself look foolish. Yesterday's shooter reportedly claimed he wanted to kill white policeman because of the recent killings of Blacks in the last couple of days. Evidently he was armed with a sophisticated rifle, and he knew how to use it. My guess is he probably fought in our military. When people snap or get filled with rage, and they have high powered and assault type weapons at their disposal, bad things happen. Get used to it as our Congress refuses to address any issues related to the misuse of these weapons and the culture of violence that is becoming common place in our country. Very sad! But, hey, they are sure putting a lot of time in on learning the ins and outs of Hillary's emails. Pathetic. Just like Nero fiddled while Rome burned!
Whether he releases his taxes or not, I am sure his investments, charitable deductions, business dealings, etc. will leak out. He has made so many enemies with those he has done business with and even the lawyers who have represented him, Trump's hypocrisy and misdeeds will surface.
Trump is basically a rookie when it comes to treaties, world leaders, military specifics, terrorist groups and their histories, etc. His incompetence and ignorance will be in full view during the debates. And if he gets angry and his orange skin turns red, he is really finished. Something to look forward to.
My financials and their dividends are looking pretty good, as well as my GE and PFE which are near all-time recent highs. Remember when you told me to dump PFE. I actually bought more. Your advice is valuable in a contrarian way! LOL!
I didn't see it. Out of the tens of thousands of emails, a couple of slip-ups seems normal. She had no reason, intent, or motive to mishandle the info., so good luck trying to find someone to convict her of lying. Your desperation is amusing. If Trump had any real positives as a presidential candidate he should be able to defeat Hillary. The fact that he is an incompetent buffoon who can't even meet with the GOP Senators without getting into a confrontation shows just how reckless a choice he is.
So how did the guy break his neck and back from the rough ride they gave him! As long as a few bad cops get away with abusing their powers, things will remain tense, and it puts the vast majority of good cops at risk. The cops in Dallas were very cooperative with the demonstrators, but a couple of criminals decided to go on a shooting spree. But, hey, since everyone in Texas can walk around with guns and rifles, I am not surprised it happened. Most of the Dallas cops I saw were Black, so the shooters didn't seem to make color a factor in who they shot.
J20, in your case it is deaf ears and an empty head. As long as guys like you spew your bias and hatred, America will struggle socially. The Middle East has problems due to religious differences, our country is struggling with guys like you who try to drive wedges between the various groups that make up our citizenry.
