As usual nobody offered an opinion on my post. Every post devolves into a diatribe about the president, no matter what the subject. The two reasons for the high DOW I mentioned originated from market newsletters I recently read, by guys that are presumably market experts. Are those views valid? I wish I knew.
Getting back to dissing Obama. Doesn't it seem obsessive/compulsive? Sort of.like a guy who constantly washes his hands. Everything that happens is an excuse to wash his hands. Wake up...wash hands. Change TV channels...wash hands. Answer the phone...wash hands. Fix a meal...wash hands. Wash hands...wash hands again. It's the same thing with Obama. Comment on Alcoa...diss Obama. Comment on the DOW...diss Obama. Mention aluminum price changes...diss Obama. Discuss foreign events...diss Obame. It's really pathetic.
Time will tell, won't it. It's up 24% since October 5th. and climbing steadily in recent days. Those are hopeful signs that suggest better times ahead.
Two possible reasons: (1) Banks borrow money from the Fed at 0% interest but don't make loans (too risky). Instead they buy stocks to collect the dividends. (2) The publics believes cash stored in bank accounts is riskier than owning equities...banks can fail, but that's unlikely with conservative equities.
Bottom line ( using this logic)... the economy is not as strong as the high DOW might suggest.
My wife and I discussed my responses to your posts 8 days ago regarding a biblical question you posed. She said my responses were definitely out of line. As usual, she is right. It was insulting, sarcastic, and not funny at all. In the future I will avoid saying anything about religion. So I apologize. I think sometimes I get so used to trading insults on message boards I forget that some subjects, like religion, are better left alone.
Has anyone watched Ted Nugents show (Wanted Ted or Alive) on the Sportman's Channel? In the episode I saw NRA spokesman Ted and his wife were hidden in a tree house directly above a feeding station surrounded by a herd of zebras (probably in Texas). If she fell out of the treehouse she would land on a zebra. She bravely aimed her high-tech bow (guided by Ted) and WHAM, kills a zebra about 10 feet away. Ted hugged and congratulated her on the kill. I wonder if they stuffed it.
Some one pays...either the young person or their parents. Everyone, including you, is a potential bankruptsy without insurance. Why is that so difficult to comprehend?
Rburkett101, stop sinning by questioning the President and Democrats....obey them.
Let everyone be subject to the authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing.
Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
Not every young person has parents who have plans, and they, like everyone, are at risk to serious medical problems.
The entire law has been available for months for anyone to read, and it's been hashed over in the media for months too. Where have you been ...in Mongolia? In any event, you're too late. Tens of thousands are signing up every day, even in Mitch McConnells home state of Kentucky, in spite of his frenzied raving.
Who wrote that ...the billionaire Koch brothers? Odd, too, it seems to work fine in Massachuetts!
You need reading glasses! I'm not briner, I'm brumar. And I didn't say "god", I said "govt. Big difference.! And don't get so angry ...it's bad for your health.
Now ...retread my post.
I forgot to mention Obamacare. Before Obamacare the medical costs for the uninsured were paid for by people who are insured.. Lots of wealth redistribution! Under that approach. With Obamacare there is less because at least some medical costs will be paid for by people who buy Obamacare policies..
How about: it's harder for a rich man to get into heaven than to get a camel through the eye of a needle (a rough quote). A Christian society might want to pass some laws to save the rich ...for their own good.
But regardless ... There isn't anything the govt does that doesn't involve wealth redistribution. That is the essence of IRS law and other laws. I'm surprised you don't know that! Capital gain taxes are zero ....that favors home owners versus renters. Medicare costs are largely paid for by people under 65. Defense spending favors defense contractors versus other businesses. Food stamps take money from richer folks and give it to the poor. Home owners get to write off mortgage interest. People with 6 kids pay lower taxes than childless couples. Etc. Etc. Etc. The laws resulting in wealth redistribution are endless.
