Much ado about nothing. She was responding to some leftwingnut groups push to declare Santa as no longer being white SO, she used the inverse to make a point! Of course it went right over the left and why not!/ There is no intellectual honesty on the left!LMAO! DOLTwingnuts!
Why is race an issue at all? because the LEFT makes RACE into its own trump card and this tactic is wearing out! I mean when one can point a finger at the racists words/actions of JOKEBAMA, OPRAH, Big Al "Twanna Brawley" Sharpton, or Jesse "I'm your Daddy TOO kid!" Jackson.........then some divisive leftwingnut group trying to STOKE THE FIRES of RACIAL DIVIDE by even bringing up WHAT COLOR Santa, Jesus...or whomever is next.........should be held accountable by the media.........of course this will never happen.
Leftwingnuts R a waste of oxygen! Merry Christmas LEFTWINGNUTs !!
Sebelius is a former Democratic Gov....so what's your point? She has turned this debacle into a twisted panty excercise of historic proportions...I know it, YOU know it, the nation knows it, Jokebama knows it, and Sebelius know's it!
But hey, thanks for the election help in 2014/2016! Get yer boots on Billybob....Northvis.....walking around in your OWN MESS can get smelly! LMAO!
communications is not hard and it creates a less hostile environment REF.: DIV.... .
DIV pop to .22 cents/qtr....now that's what I'm talking about! Thanks again GE board/Mr Immelt.......perhaps going forward a slightly more frequent commo w/shareholders will settle concerns going forward! For what it's worth and I suspect that is...nothing...but hey...........................Boar
Go take the Hillside ECON 101 being offered for free online....then take a finace course, learn how to read a balance sheet then pretend YOU are lending to (Pick your company) and decide if its a sold risk!
Oh hey the Taper, I would say the market has already priced in a taper, however seeing is believing so we may see a quick hour's sell off followed by PILING into good value picks/ & momentums. The TAPER merely means things (the economy) are/is picking up...and once the talking heads tell the TV reliant investing public whats going on....well, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Banks/financials are going to be big winners as rates go up! Oh and if things are heating up, gee I wonder if earnings expectations will be validated by improving/accelerated earnings in some sectors/corporations. The winners and losers will become very apparent over the next 6 months if rates do begin to inch up!
Oh and all merely IMHO !
LMAO! Climate change has been an ever present phenom in our planet's history, so, get over trying to imply YOu and the LEFT stand on the high ground, you don't!
As you read this, a growing number of climate experts are warning of a possible 30 to 50 year COOLING going forward. Gee, taking a look around, I'm not sure either side can claim victory on being CORRECT except to say, climate is changing.
The real question is this, is man having any meaningful impact on the EARTH's well known....documented....and accepted climate changes that have ALWAYS occured!?
Why don;t you focus on the WIND TURBINE MEAT SHREDDARS you LEFTISTS love so much!? The SIERRA CLUB has KNOWN for well over a DECADE that migratory birds are wiped out EACH YEAR on their routes through California. Game birds, birds of prey, protected species as well, have all fallen victim to those blades as they rotate making such a SMALL AMOUNT of energy per unit for the size and SHREDDING they do.
The LEGFT wanted wind turbines, fought for and paid for them, and now they cry wolf? This is almost as bad as the USE PLASTIC NOT PAPER at the grocery stores for OVER A DECADE........and now our waste dumps are CHOKED w/plastic bags that have a half-life of what? Is it 200 years plus? I don't remember! LMAO
If the LEFT would let science lead the way on this issue, instead of their feimine emotions, we wouldn't be wasting so much money/time/ nor watch the blender like slaughter of birds! LMAO!
Hey let's recycle and open a KFC....(NO!), a....CFG (california fried goose) place at the base of the wind turbines!
Who won? The southside of Chicago, Unions, the poor, and MAYBE......just MAYBE, pre-existing conditions.
Who lost? THE MIDDLE CLASS, the UPPER MIDDLE CLASS......and those with PRE_EXISTING CONDITIONS who are MIDDLE CLASS and are DYING because they LOST their PLAN and their DOCTORS.
JOKEBAMACARE is a DEATH SENTENCE TO MANY in critical condition as you read this.
So whats the math on that EGOBAMA? Give coverage to 30 million (MOST of whom have not even tried to sign up) and kill off another 10 million or so today that are losing their critical care relationship with their current plan/Dr?
This redistribution plan that is killing people will not be forgotten.
Hey dik4brains, Oregon got a 300 million dollar grant for Jokebamacare and a whopping 44 people have signed up as of YESTERDAY. Munch on those numbers U leftwingnutlicker! LMAO!
Stop the efffffing games, it diminishes everything you've accomplished to date. Reach down, squeeze'em, then yell out to shareholders what YOUR and therefore THEIR future looks like regarding F.
will feel as they come to realize the stuff of movies can now sit on there counter/desktop/workbench!
It is this shcok and awe phenom that is going to drive sales at the consumer level, and the good news is that technology is fast expanding the capabilities the consumer will have over time!
Like the music industry that offered up the reel to reel, then the 8 track, cassette, cd.......each passing evolution of improved delivery system/technology creates a repeated auience of consumers! Not to say this would be deliberate but rather, that is the genesis of mass producing each new generation of 3D printers!
The exciting aspect of this technology is that it is seriously unknown amongst our consumer ranks holds great promise for investors as we click toward hitting critical mass which I suspect is about a 1 to 2 year ride away! By then, capabilities of these printers will be more attractive than today! To add, economy of scale will bring hardware/material etc., costs down from today as well.
3D is will continue to expand in every concievable way going forward!
Needless to say, I am as excited about this opportunity as I was back in the MSFT-ORCL days when the average consumer was willing to fork out 4k or more for a computer that couldn't even offer up todays average graphics on any random site!
Its nice to buy and own the grazing fields before the HERDs move in! ALL IMHO of course!
the naysayers that I have read on this board are dolts. I haven't read one credible criticism. DDD has next to zero debt, it is expanding, its apps are expanding, its customer base is expanding, whats not to like!? Oh sorry, I guess if one is SHORT, the lazy mans position, then that person is not happy! LMAO! OUCH!
Go read 3D feedback on AMAZON to see what the gidget/gadget guys are doing.....folks can get into a 3D set-up for between about 1200.00 to 2000.00 right now. I won;t YET, because the evolution of expanding capabilities/speed etc. have yet to make the technology as broadly appealing as it will be as time marches on.
Meanwhile the FOX haters, Cramer haters, and DDD haters all seem to be swinning in the same pool of #$%$ and it is obvious they are SHORT and are losing $$$ with each uptick.
Bad news SHORTs! This is a momentum stock that is just now benefiting from increased awareness of mometum investors and those gidget/gadget guys who want to be first and either have a printer or are busy sizing one up! MOVE ON SHORTIES..........the wind is picking up! All IMHO of course!
ORGANOVO , NOV 8, 2013..........just printed a miniature human liver that made it 40 days. I'll take that for a radical first step in the right direction!
Inventors exist because people like you sit back and say it can't be done! LMAO!
I hear what you're saying....mainstream america has no clue what 3D printing is and, remind your boss to never place you in charge of a challenge that requires the abiliy to look forward !
3D printing as you so aptly point out, has been around for a long time, so long that it is just now going mainstream and out to the consumer. Our first consumer level PCs were actually little b etter than a fricking word processor and look where we are now!
Necessity is the mother of invention and now that the cat is out of the bag so to speak regarding 3D printing and all met with improving technology and choice, you are playing dumb if you don't think this concept will take off! LMAO!
You hail from the IBM/warren Buffet crowd that couldn't see the attraction a PC might have for the average consumer. As I mentioned before, this is what gave birth to GATES and JOBS......and 3D technology is about to give birth to new versions of Gates and Jobs who unlike you, can see this technology in nearly every household...........that wants it!
Of course as this 3D technology broadens what it can offer......well, the more people there will be who can see a practical use..............and economy of scale will bring prices down. Again I hear you....and I totally disagree with your implied assessment of where this is headed..... . I suggest you go to Amazon and read the consumer reviews of their 3D printing experiences and what they used their printers for..........this should give you a sense of the tidal wave that I think this technology is about to create..............but hey, you might be right! LMAO...but I sincerely doubt it!
Needless to say, I am excited about the potential of 3D and specifically, DDD. The onething I forgot to mention in my bliss, is the concept of CRITICAL MASS. In earlier posts I mentioned the HERDs have yet to see or even really understand what 3D printing is! They will get educated on site at some craft show or o TV or online at some site BUT...its really gonna strike home when a neighbor tells his neighborhood he can 3D CUSTOMIZE their Daughters wedding rings for the price of the gold...it's coming!
The gidget and gadget players who clung to JOBs/aapl and tech in general are going to want the biggest, the best, that is avaliable to the consumer! CRITICAL MASS has yet to take this industry to the otherside of the rainbow IMHO, but its coming!
IMHO...the 3D printing sector will undergo some consolidation but not before some more buyouts occur and i think maybe, BIG buyouts, DDD being one of those targets in that it offers up a best of breed ( to borrow from Cramer!) status IMO.
Next to zero debt....growth forecasts that are so potentially big, it is useless to try and anticipate since we have several sectors that could benefit in a big way by making their own components to even their own finsihed product. Aviation, tech, mobile comm, and well really, ANYTHING!
Lets face it, a company ( in Texas) was just given a grant to 3D food items! For a trip to mars perhaps, for disaster areas here on earth when such occurs, to address famines etc., etc.
3D is as radical to our future and the change it brings, as the airplane, auto, telephone, PC, cell phone, smartphone, laptop, notebook etc., etc., WHICH by the way, all today, use some products (or soon will) from 3D printing.
I haven't even mentioned the medical strides 3D has made and will continue to make. Go google URBEE 2 and see the first 3D printed car that averages HUNDREDS of miles per gallon and can/will drive acorss the US!
Disruptive technologies like this are once in a lifetime opportunities, alot can change in a short while, there will be a host of losers and a bevy of winners. EVERY INDUSTRY I can think of can and ultimately will someday benefit from 3D printing and I think DDD is one of the players that will be around for a long time to come either on its own or bought out and absorbed. All seriously only IMHO................its coming and, it will use energy! See energy sector for longer term plays right now! again...IMHO !
Growth. Accelerating earnings growth anticipated to move from 17% to over 20% looking forward. Additional stores/China/India/US....a recovering Europe......and TEAVANA which I think surprises in India and elsewhere.....look even the median 12 month stock price is 89..... between analysts.....stocks are supposed to trade based on expectations, SBUX continues to surprise and I think next earnings furthers my opinion!
All IMHO of course!
to 95.00 range as I type this.............naysayers are ingorant of the season and little comments like Black Friday shopping experiences CNBC talking heads (or was it Fox Business? Can't remember!) when it was mentioned that the longest line they saw was at SBUX!!!!
Tis the season for SBUX! IMHO !
To the naysayers, DDD is already contracted to make PRINT components for Google.....they do alot of work for GE.......can you imagine if Steve Jobs or Bill Gates had access to MAKE their own PC components?
Economy of scale will kick in as proliferation takes place and the bar will keep being raised as each NEW APP comes along aloowing the guy at home to do more and more and, to do so at declining costs!
All IMHO of course....oh and if its cheap enough for a GE to make....it must be because they make and need ALOT of whatever's! Oh hey, there goes that economy of scale thing right in front of you! LMAO !
3D printing is a game changer!
i MERELY MEANT THE DAY WILL COME WHEN ONE CAN PRINT A CHICK! LMAO! Hey if you don;t see the potential, thats okay! IBM and Warren Buffet didn;t see it either way back when.......when Steve Jobs and Bill Gates did! LMAO!
3D printing has already made a car, a functional AR-15.....w/mags.......a functioning LIVING LIVER.......but hey....you start a fire rubbing two sticks together too so why use a match or a lighter!?
There is no limit to what 3D printing can do! If you are focussed on chatzkes, then you are MISSING THE BALL!
Take a look at what DDD is already making for GE, NIKE,....the medical industry!
Oh and the low end consumer 3D can make chatzkes..but this too will elevate as the technology/material availability improves.
I living LIVER.....is that a chatzke!?
Your view echoes (literally), of the likes of IBM and Warren Buffet who saw no application for a PC in every home across america back in the 1980's! Which of course, gave birth to MICROSOFT and really, the ENTIRE TECH industry that we know today! OOPS!
Stop being a wooden ship loyalist and see the palace through the trees! all IMHO of course!
Hey bonehead, 3D printing has already "printed" a minature, LIVING LIVER...google it since you seem smart enough to do so. Oh and hey, guess what, those farmers you're talking about, well, they might end up 3D printing their chickens and eggs...........hammer that one onto your rearend like an unwanted tatoo because YOU DID IT TO YOURSELF ! LMAO! Clearly YOU dont understand this disruptive technology....why don't you try reading up on medical apps, aero,nautical apps.....etc., etc.!?
Oh and when you see that CRAFT person MAKING jewelry at the local MALL during the Holidays.....please say to yourself GEE, I should'a done my homework and bought some 3D printer since they are THEEEEEEEEEE disruptive technology entering the frey......................better yet, sit on your thumb! LMAO!
