  • According to the report I read, it appears RGDX is going to need some money soon. In fact, at its present burn rate, it could be running on dry within two months. Frank's "little ATM" may have to offer shares at around 60 to 70 cents sometime soon. Now that could hurt. But I am sure Frank will find some way to spin how he walked away with a big windfall.

    aloraaaaaa, now you did it. How dare you throw facts into the discussion with Frank and his bigoted buddies. House Republicans are the biggest hypocrites of all. They cut nearly a half a billion in security funding for the defense of our overseas embassies, etc., yet they have the audacity to go after President Obama for the wording in the initial statement concerning the attack, an attack the House might have actually prevented if they hadn't cut out a half a billion. Now Frank said Clinton and the President could have gone around the House's cuts, but why should they have had to. I hope when the latest hearings are held, they post how each house member voted on the embassy security cuts when they are asking questions. Incidentally, there were far more attacks on our embassies and deaths associated in those attacks during the Bush years. I don't remember Frank's cries of outrage then. Typical for a one sided gas bag.

    A blessed Veterans Day to all our vets. Went to put flowers on my dad's grave this morning. He served in the South Pacific during WWII. He worked hard all his life, but he always taught me to look out for the little guy. He grew up during the Depression, so he experienced hard times at an early age. My mom's family lived by the railroad tracks. They used to feed some of the jobless men who road the trains looking for work. Often let them sleep in their basement. I guess tha'ts why I know good people often have to struggle to get by in life, and decent people ought to do what they can to help them out.

  • So you can work full time at minimum wage job in most states and make out worse than on welfare. Hey, Frankie, what kind of incentive is that to get people to work! I know they should all go to college, work at a drug company, retire early, and make millions by buying stocks at every low and selling at every high, but we all know that you are the only one who could pull that off.

    Frank, I do very well financially. Do you really think you are the only one who takes advantage of IRA's etc! You are an arrogant twit. Most of us don't feel the need to brag about how well we do on a daily basis as you do. The difference between you and me is that I don't mind if the less fortunate who bust their #$%$ at low paying jobs make out a little better. And I don't mind if I pay a little more to make that happen. Frank, you may want your coffin stuffed with cash, but that ain't going to happen. You are going to meet your maker as penniless as everyone else. Hate to burst your bubble!

    Frank, the self-proclaimed millionaire, "will not go back to McKy Ds" if they raise the minimum wage. Boy, you da man, Frank!

    HPQ just announced that they are laying off thousands of people in highly skilled jobs. Maybe some of these people will be desperate enough to have to take a minimum wage job to make ends meet.

    Now the real point is that if people are working full-time at minimum wage jobs and they should be at least above the poverty level. If they have to go on public assistance, then Frank baby, your tax dollars are going to go toward feeding them and helping them pay their rent or care for their children. Man, that must really gall a guy like you. See, I would just rather pay a few more cents for my burgers and drinks and give these people the dignity of a livable wage.

    Frank, if your bio-tech picks keep performing as they have these recent weeks, you may find yourself on public assistance. I would luv it!

    Just heard an analyst on Bloomberg Business News discussing the $7.25 minimum wage issue. He was talking about the demonstrations at McDonalds. He made a good point that the people who can't live on the minimum wage that McDonalds pays end up on public support. Consequently, McDonalds gets workers who end up being subsidized by the American taxpayer. It's a pretty good strategy if you can get away with it. I personally would rather pay an extra few pennies a meal so these people could make a decent wage. Heck, I worked my way through college making $5 an hour back in the late 60's and 70's when everything cost so much less. The thought of someone working 40 hours and earning less than $300 is pathetic. I know the usual suspects say these jobs are only intended for kids, but that is not true. Kids are at school most of the day, so adults work these jobs mornings and afternoons. Since fast food chains stay open late at night, most late night shifts are filled by adults due to child labor laws. As for raising the minimum wage costing massive jobs, I sincerely doubt that businesses will fold rather than raise their prices a little.

    Rays, are you really that naïve? Administrators always want their group to look good. Some of them evidently lied because they didn't want to get fired for failing to met the standards that the VA had set up. It appears to be as simple as that. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that some of these creeps mishandled monies also. If these guys didn't have a problem with seeing vets die because of their negligence, I expect they also didn't lose any sleep over doing other illegal activities also.

    President Obama did campaign on helping vets, and he has done many great things for them. This problem is that some VA hospitals lied about their wait times and neglected to treat some vets entirely. The President wasn't aware of this because these hospitals lied about their activities and hid the truth. You can't catch a liar until he gets caught in his/her lies and someone blows the whistle. Vets and their families have now come forward and the President is aware of what apparently has been going on. I believe that we shall see swift action in the hospitals where these improper and illegal activities have been going on. In no way would President Obama want our vets to get anything less than the best treatment. Remember, he fought for healthcare coverage for just about all Americans with the Affordable Healthcare Act, so it is absurd to allege that our president would ever condone what went on in some VA hospitals.

  • The fact that some VA hospital administrators were lying in their reports about the waiting time for treating their patients is terrible and outrageous, but the key is that they LIED in their reports. Once the lies came to light, the President is investigating to see who to hold responsible. I sincerely believe heads will roll, but I believe most of the heads will be limited to specific hospitals where administrators and doctors misrepresented their activities and let our vets down. I have a number of vet friends who have used the VA hospitals in NJ, and they have been quite happy with their treatment. In fact, my cardiologist, whom I thought was one of the best docs I ever had, left private practice to go to the VA. If the truth be told, every president has faced issues where the people who represent our country and in essence him, have let our nation down. The fact that the loyal tea party types are trying to blame this on the President is just business as usual.

    Many times traders buy months before ASCO and then start to unload as the meeting draws near. If blockbuster news is released, then those who buy and hold can be richly rewarded. I haven't heard that CLDX has anything dramatic set for release, so that may be why the stock has pulled back so severely. Many bio-techs have been under pressure, so it is not just a CLDX thing. However, those who bought in the $20's and $30's have to be feeling very frustrated by the situation. If nothing we don't already know comes out of ASCO, I believe the selling pressure may pick up again. I hope CLDX comes through for all those patients who need effective cancer treatments and for those investors who have support the company through difficult times. Good luck!

    How are you doing on your little ATM, RGDX?

  • I expect NWBI will steadily start to climb back up. Can't hold a good bank down. IMHO.

  • It appears that you spend most of your days spouting your one-sided conspiracy political #$%$ nonstop. Do you really believe that every problem our country faces is somehow President Obama's fault? If you do, you are obviously not the genius/sage that you keep telling us that you are. Most of the nonsense you post can be refuted with a little research and objectivity. When it comes time for you to leave this earth, I bet you will wish you had one more minute to post just one more hateful/political message on the CLDX message board. What a waste!

  • A 50 year-old woman with blood cancer who was out of conventional treatments underwent an experimental treatment where she was injected with a massive dose of measles vaccine. Her cancer which had spread widely throughout her body, went into remission and was undetectable after just one dose. The Mayo Clinic is planning a much larger study starting this September. Good news for cancer patients. Ironically, a very simple and inexpensive cancer treatment may be available if scientists continue to see similar results.

    I don't know if it is the stock or the actions of its management that stink. Pumping while dumping has to raise some eyebrows with shareholders and the SEC. Though he dismiss Gale's management's tactics could be in for a big hurt.

    "Dr." Whip, I personally know some gay young people who are friends of my children. They have great relationships with their parents, and they are intelligent, wonderful, and caring young people. I have had some candid and serious talks with them, and they ALL tell me that they knew they were different at a very young age. They didn't choose to be gay because who would really want to subject themselves to all the hatred and bigotry that guys like you throw at them. They tried to fit in, but they just weren't attracted to the opposite sex. What I like about these young people is that they seem unfazed by the likes of you. They believe you are entitled to your opinions even if they are hurtful to them. But then again, someone can only hurt you if you hold their opinion as valid. I believe one of #$%$ Cheney's daughters is gay. I guess you must believe that #$%$ relationship with her lies at the root of her "gayness." You are such a putz!
