Hey, "patriots," even though you are way too old to serve in our military, if you feel so strongly about going to fight in Iraq, hop on a plane and join the Shia volunteers. It looks like thousands are standing up for what they believe in. I am sure that "smart, tough guys" like you would be welcomed with open arms. But then, you like to send others to fight for what you believe in. Gutless wonders!
I support letting these people settle their own issues. You guys who want us to police the world are ridiculous. If we intervened in every hot spot in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East as you jokers espouse, we would be bankrupt and lose thousands of decent young Americans who have no interest in these areas. J20, saddle up with Frankie, and put your life where your mouth is. Ironically, you guys wanted us to attack Iran in the last election. Now you want us to work with Iran to stop a radical Sunni group which is gaining ground against a pathetic Iraqi government. Make up your mind! Are you anti-Iran or pro-Iran? Remember, you portrayed Iran as a nuclear power who was planning to attack Israel in short order. Doesn't that still hold true. If it doesn't, maybe the President had something to do with that? You won't admit that though. You guys are pathetic.
Frank, you have been for military intervention in Iran, Syria, Ukraine and now Iraq. You are free and able to go over there and put your thoughts into action. I am sure the Iraqi government would love to have a man who has all the answers helping out. If we intervened military in all the places you have suggested in this past year, we would have thousands of deaths and billions more in debt. Since you won't pay more in taxes, how would all these interventions get paid for! You like to use all kinds of negative political name calling when you want to disparage another person's thought. Well, I am just going to say this. You are a pompous gas bag who talks big and carries a little stick.
I hope the Iraqis find their own peace somehow, but enough American lives have been wasted over there. We are not the policemen of the world. If any of the "super tea party patriots" want us to intervene, then let them volunteer and saddle up. But then they like to send others to do their fighting. Heck, they don't even like to pay for the wars they wage. If you check the message board, Whip, Frank, and their cronies have been calling for us to intervene in Syria, Iran, Ukraine, and now Iraq. Enough already!
Glad to see Iraqis are stepping up. Now Whip, Frank, etc. and their kids won't have to take up arms. Right! Big mouths, no action! Interesting that this is basically a religious feud. Iraq will most likely only gain peace if it divides up into three separate entities of Kurdish, Sunni, and Shia populations. If Bush had bothered to study the culture/sectarian differences in Iraq before he blundered in there, we could have saved thousands of American lives and billions of dollars. Listening to all the crazies on this board calling for us to rush back in is just amazing!
The arms that were left there were given to the Iraqi military that refused to fight the insurgents because they don't like their government. Whip, you are one twisted dude. Let's face it, Iraq is a sectarian mess that we cannot fix. Let's let them determine their own destiny.
Iraq has always been a quagmire, and Bush should have never gone in. His dad warned him, but he thought he knew better. Sunnis and Shiites hate each other and will constantly fight. Many of the refugees fleeing the fighting support the insurgents because they are Sunnis also. All you guys who are for intervention, just do what the insurgents do - go to Iraq and join the fighting. The US government won't stop you and you can put your lives where your mouths are. But hey, it is much easier to sit behind your computer and demand that our young men and women risk their lives for Iraqis who won't fight for themselves or our actually against the present government. To complicate matters even more, the insurgents are anti-Iran, so if we attack them, we will actually be helping Iran maintain its influence over Iraq.
Inventory buildup, competition, and friction in the company all are creating headwinds. I was tempted to buy on the dip, but this looks like a quick trade at best. IMHO.
I seriously doubt that the company will jump close to $7 today before the close. My prediction is that it will sell-off late in the day. Traders who tried to buy the lows will try to take profits, if any, before the market closes.
Wow, seems like an over reaction to me. You hope the store goes broke because they don't accept checks. Many stores no longer accept checks due to fraud issues. I find it much easier to use cash or credit anyway. Unemployment uses direct deposit now in most cases. Checks are costly and subject to fraud.
Whip, take yourself and your children and go over there and fight if you want to continue the war. If the Iraqi's don't have what it takes to stand up and fight for themselves, why should our young men and women die for them. The colonists stood up and fought for their freedom, if the Iraqis won't stand up for themselves then I guess they will always live in fear and turmoil.
Hopefully, the news will be good on July 31. If you had a $80,000 surgery today, the bills would start showing up about then.
A little dip now should be nothing if the trial news is good.
Not so sure about buying more. If what CNBC just reported is true, it could be time to jump ship before the stock gets hit too bad.
