I`m not trying to be a smart #$%$ but you have not been paying attention to what`s really going on in todays BS hyped up economy. Your viewpoint on MCD being a first job stepping stone type job would have been correct about two decades ago. The improved economy and the reduction in the unemployment numbers are all for show. The Middle Class is still being erased and those first time stepping stone jobs are turning in to dead end no place to stay yet there`s no where else to go. Do you believe when you see seventy year old men and women clerking and stocking shelves at Dollar General and Wal Mart, Family Dollar and such that they weren`t forced into these jobs rather than retirement because inflation is low and the economy is strong. The economy is only strong for a minority of Americans, the other 200 million are struggling their collective #$%$ off. Corporate America is still continuing to lay off thousands to improve their bottom line which is wonderfull for shareholders but doesn`t do sh-t for the 200 million. There isn`t a rational person if ( THEY ARE HONEST WITH THEMSELVES) that can logically say that $ 7.25 is a fair wage for anyone. Those better opportunities you speak of have been permantely removed. Lets also touch on the Student Loan Rip Off that is devastating tens of millions of people. A very small percentageof thos folks could have walked into Wells Fargo, Chase, or BAC and qualified for a $30,000 to $50,000 loan yet they were given the thumbs up for these student loans under the guise of trying to help millions become better qualified for the better jobs. Sadly the banksters knew a little secret, and that was that there weren`t going to be any of those better jobs. It had the effect they new it would it ruined milllions of already stretched marginalized peoples credit scores as they found themselves unable to repay those loans as was agreed.be any of
We have all had to make sacrifices such as working at pay levels beneath where we would normally be at. Well everyone except the politicians who rape our country at the behest of the Sociopath Billionaires who own Wall St. That being said if you believe that working for minimum wage $7.25 an hour is remotely fair while corporate America reaps record profits then you are a Republican. Had minimum wage came even close to tracking inflation over the past three decades it would be over $20.00 an hour. Do I think McDonalds Employees should make $15.00 an hour, No I don`t. I think $11.50 an hour with raises annually based on several areas of performance. No one can come close to existing on $11.50 an hour but it`s a whole lot better than $7.25. These People YES REAL PEOPLE w three.ith lives, families rent, food utilities at $ 7.25 take your pick which ONE are you going to pay? Certainly not all
Just in case you haven`t noticed oil is off roughly 60% the market is selling off and EPD is holding up quite well considering. All I see is a great buying opportunity.
And let me guess, you were the smart one who saw this coming and shorted it all the way from 40.00. No you were just like everyone else YOU loaded up at $38, $35, $25 and so on. You`re only a Big Shot in your own mind.
Your Post sounds almost prophetic, to bad it`s BS. Every job they do is high risk, I worked for them and many other High Risk Refinery Contractors in the early to mid 2000s. Most of their contracts are Time and Materiels Jobs THEY MAKE A MINT. A FEW are Hard money jobs where there is a set price and if CBI goes over by Twenty Million they eat it. They have billions in insurance to cover EVERYTHING and they`re just Hoarding money to skim themselves.
I think you are correct in buying more. I actually made money from NVGS mainly by accident. I generally don`t invest money in companies with no track record and no dividend. I only bought a couple hundred shares at $$24.45.45 and sold at $31.27. Not a great amount of money but these days I`ll take what I can get. At face value NVGS seems to be making all the right moves, but with so little information available it`s hard to make a somewhat informed decision. I only originally bought shares because I love oil stocks of all varieties. Drillers, Shippers, Pipeliners, Refiners you name it I like it. Needless to say I`m down roughly 20 percent from about six weeks ago, hence the dividends. HAL is a good buy here.
I guess you`re living proof that they do. Hope you had a good weekend,now run along child.
Come now Screw, you have now succeded in reducing your age to a ten year old. Of course I keep responding to your Little Boy Comments so that doesn`t really show much maturity either. We better call it a draw and part friends so that you might quit embarrassing yourself. Enjoy the weekend.
Come on #$%$ only prove my point with your childish reply. Like I said before, run along now I think I hear your Mommy calling.
Kevin O`Leary as a BAC shareholder is angry that BAC just caves in to various illegal schemes rather than fighting it out in court. He says the Government is flat out stealing shareholder money. He says it with such conviction that he believes it to be true. Tens of thousand mostly poor individuals MOSTLY POOR languish in prison for fraud of less than $10,000. BAC commits fraud against Millions of people and there is a TON of EVIDENCE and he wonders why they don`t fight it.
Lest we all remember that a vote for either party is a guarentee that the status quo will remain intact. A vote for Republicans will also further crush the life out of the 100 million working poor, mostly families who already not earning enough to exist let alone live. The Republican Mantra, We`ve yet to meet a family that we won`t KICK WHILE THEIR DOWN.America has had 200 years of these two Do Nothing Amoral Slugs and kjust because your personal economy may be fine most peoples are not. But i`ll refer back to the Republican Mantra.
If oil drops more buy more. If you`re old enough to remember, how many times has oil crashed only to rebound to $100.00 on some manufactured crisis either here or some mid east hell hole. The big money is profiting all the way down and when they determine the right time oil will rise again. Don`t you think with the Trillions they Control that they can push an entire sector any way they wish. Look at Oils History. Even though I hold some shares of PGH i`ll admit that there`s probably better oil related companies to wait out the doldrums, but the ship will sail again.
