Man, shorts must be getting killed.
The Iraq War, "...could last six days, six weeks. I don't think six months." Just shows how smart the neocon brain trust of Cheney and Rumsfeld was. Too bad Bush got sucked in by these "experts." But hey, Bush made it so that we didn't raise taxes to pay for the war, we just added the cost to our national debt. The real cost was to the men and women who lost their lives or were injured in the war. It is to easy to fight wars when you don't pay for them and you send somebody else to do the fighting. Just the way Fraz likes it.
I imagine the people who have influence in the country's economy and want to profit from it were eager to have their say. The average person, like in our country, doesn't even participate when we get the chance to vote.
The Iraq War, "... could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months." Just shows how well Bush, Cheney, and the Neocon brain trust thought things out. Rumsfeld was only off by 12 years and counting. Boy, don't you long for those good old days when we had such great leadership. But hey, at least we didn't pay for the war with our tax dollars. We just added it to our national debt. The real cost was the loss of lives of our young men and women who we sent to fight the war.
Fraz, I don't know how up you are on education, but our county runs a vocational school that any county child can attend free of charge if they have the desire and meet the criteria for a number of skills like auto mechanics, baking, hair dressing, refrigeration/heating, etc. Thousands of children take advantage of this. The vast majority of the students who successfully graduate form schools like this do find jobs, but they rarely ever make over or even near $100,000. I too took general shop, metal shop, and mechanical drawing because my dad was in industry, and I originally wanted to be an engineer/architect. I am able to do much more than my sons around the house and our church, but they are able to hire people to do their work as they both graduated college with advanced degrees in fields that are in demand. They make great money and have health insurance, something the average worker no longer gets. If schools really want to make a difference, they could better serve their students by giving them more career exposure to help them see where good jobs can really be found. Our society no longer values hard work itself as many people bust their butts and still just barely get by.
Fraz, I had a nice workout. You should get out from behind your computer and give your creaky news a little exercise. Exercise also helps clear the cobwebs from the mind. You also get to talk to all kinds of people. I go to an inner city Y, so I get to see just how wrong all your hateful stereotypes are. The showers are in one large room, so your fixation with gays looking at you might be a problem. I have a feeling you would be quite a sight in the raw.
I worked since I was 13 years old at various jobs until I graduated from college. I worked for 37 years in my career field, and I did well enough that I put my sons through college loan free, and my wife and I could comfortably retire. My investment savvy has allowed me to actually earn more now than I did while I was working.
Before I go to the gym, Fraz, I know you will say that US News and World is written by liberal #@#@. Don't bother to waste your typing. Rest your fingers and do a little more research before you post dribble.
Hey, depending on the family size, I imagine the avg. auto mechanic might qualify for food stamps, housing assistance, and healthcare subsidies. So Fraz, is this the best you can come up with. LOL.
Wrong again, Fraz.
When Frost announced he was stepping down from TEVA, I figured he might be doing that because TEVA had an interest in OPK. I doubt if TEVA would move this fast, but stranger things have happened. With so much interest getting directed at OPK, I doubt the stock will pullback unless Frost comes out and says the company is not up for grabs. And why would he do that?
OPK has had very heavy buying the last few days and weeks. This stock is running as if the word is out that something very good is about to happen. I am not buying more, but I will not sell until Frost works his magic. I fully expect OPK will hit $20 sometime this year. IMHO.
Obama mentioned that people have done horrible things in the name of religion since man came on the scene. He pointed out the Crusades, the Inquisition, Slavery (which is condoned in the old testament of the Bible) as well as ISIS and other Muslim terrorist groups have used religion as an excuse for horrible acts. He could have gone on and on as far as how some people and groups throughout history have used their religion, what ever it is, to justify their terrible deeds. Hitler exterminated millions of people because they were Jewish. Many Christians in Germany stood silent while these horrible activities took place. I listened to his speech, and the point he is making is that religious extremism by any religion is unacceptable. It was actually a very good speech and well received by the people in attendance.
Purchase of Hospira viewed as a step toward splitting the company up. Generics have been doing very well, and PFE looks to be capitalizing on Hospira as well as its own stable of drugs which have lost patent. PFE still has billions to make more moves if it wants.
I guess that explains the heavy volume and the strong upward movement. I believe Frost stepped down from the TEVA board and that apparently has fueled spec. of a buyout. Hey, whatever. I like OPK for its fundamentals, and I do believe Frost will sell the company at some point. He is not a young man, so a sale could come sooner rather than later. Good luck!
If Fraz isn't a bigot and a racist, his words certainly contradict his true feelings. I wonder if his early retirement was forced or voluntary. If Fraz ran his mouth off in the work place like he does on this message board, he would be a major liability for any employer. The irony of Fraz is that his ridiculous and biased comments only cheapen any good ideas that he has. He likes to picture himself as a spokesperson for the Republican Party, but his words are nothing but an albatross around the party's neck. My son is a true conservative, and he just shakes his head when I told him a few of Fraz's words of wisdom. Oh well, this is a free country, and people can spew their hatred within limits.
