$34.6 million was given from 1972 - 1995 which included the presidencies of Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and GHW Bush. HMMM! Seems like Obama is just retrying an idea that all these Republican presidents thought was worthwhile. Rays, do you actually bother to research anything before you type it up? Listening to FOX News can make you look like an idiot when you don't bother to check the facts. By the way, a recent Rand Corporation Study showed that every $1 invested in prison education brought about a $4 to $5 saving on incarceration costs down the road. Since this program was approved by many Republican presidents, and since it is projected to save taxpayer money, I find your outrage to be pathetic as usual. Have a great weekend.
No, but I should have. Zoetis really took off because of buyout possibilities. I opted to hold onto PFE because of its prospects and its great divvy.
I never sold out of PFE. It is one of my biggest holdings. Fraz advised me to sell over $5 back. I piled into PFE back in the $20's, and I have enjoyed the ride. I fully expect the PFE will break into three companies down the road, so there could be a lot more money to be made.
Ron Paul is a true conservative. He believes in a streamlined tax system. He doesn't want the US to be the world's policeman, and he does not want the government involved in social/religious issues which our founding fathers believed should be separate from government involvement. I voted for him because he said what he really believed, not what he figured he needed to say to get elected. That did Romney in. Romney changed his positions so many times, nobody really knew what he stood for, including himself.
I told you a couple of days back that I voted for Ron Paul. I didn't vote for McCain because he used very poor judgment by selecting Sarah (I can see Russia) Palin as his VP running mate. Even though I didn't vote for him, I still respected his valiant service to our country.
Go figure. The thing I find amusing about these guys is that they don't seem to have the ability to actually apply any logic to what they are posting. For instance, they defend Trump's horrific statements against McCain and vets in general, but then they say that Trump will never get the nomination. One of the reasons he will not get the nomination is because of his disdain for vets. However, by defending Trump, they discredit themselves and the eventual GOP candidate.
Rays, you tea partiers praised Putin. Don't try to bring a bunch of other BS into the discussion. He was your hero even though he was and is as big an enemy to our country as Iran. You also make excuses for Trump's comments about McCain. McCain earned the right to represent our country by his heroic service. Noting he could EVER say or DO would diminish his sacrifice to our country. If you give permission to the likes of Trump to bad mouth McCain and our vets, then I guess you agree with him. PATHETIC!
J20, I guess you must be in favor of raising the minimum wage then. That is about the only thing the government can do to get private companies to raise wages. Glad to see you a aware of the problem! LOL.
Fraz, you never believe statistics. Remember the recent stats that showed the lowest number of unemployment applications in something over 30 years. You didn't believe them. How about the stock market! Is the all-time high a mirage! But hey, you told me to sell PFE about $5 ago, and it just hit a new ten year high not counting its near 4% divvy over that time. I don't know about you, but I am quite happy with the way my economic situation has recovered over the last few year.
NJ's state paper printed a letter from a Vietnam vet who wrote about his hero, a 95 year old vet. who served in the 82 Airborne in WWII. He was captured on his first combat jump and spent a year as a POW in a German war camp. Due to Trump's disrespect to Sen. McCain for being captured, this Vietnam vet stated, "I can't see any veterans or their families voting for him as disrespectful as he is of our war heroes." I totally agree. No presidential candidate in the history of our country, to my knowledge, has ever said anything remotely as disrespectful about our vets. Considering Trump used deferments and a 4F status before getting a high lottery number to avoid the draft, you would think mr. arrogance would show some respect. The fact that so many of you tea partiers like him is not surprising though as you previously were rooting for Putin when he was actively working to undermine democracy in the Ukraine while contributing to thousands of deaths in the fighting he sponsored and supported.
The public is enjoying Trumps antics, but most Americans know he would never make a good president. It will be fun watching him try though.
She said it was the present administration's responsibility at this point, and she didn't think it was right to interject her feelings. She said that if the matter was not resolved when she became president, she would express her beliefs then. Said like a true politician. But hey, at least she didn't pull a Jeb Bush. First he was for the Iraq invasion and then against it. Then he wasn't sure. How many years has he had to figure that one out. Next to Trump, Jeb is running second in the GOP polls. All the politicians, except Trump, try to say whatever it is that they feel will get them elected. Trump, on the other hand, has no filter and just says whatever his little humble heart leads him to say. LOL
Tells me that MNKD is not expecting any significant income anytime soon. We shall see.
Tom is only fighting this because he doesn't want the league to ever do this to anyone else again. Right! It is time Tom just took it like a man and moved on. Seems to be working well for A-Rod. With the way A-Rod has been hitting at age 40, he probably didn't need to be taking those roids all those years. Too bad. He could have been a legitimate hall of famer!
Pfizer's stock has doubled since then and just hit a new multi-year high. Their current strategy seems to be focused on getting into the bio-similar segment.
BLRX is an Israeli company that partners with research universities to bring new research, compounds, etc. to market. The research project that failed was bought by BLPH from BLRX for about $17 million. BLRX put aprox. $10 million into their initial development. The drug was actually a matrix that was injected into a person's heart after he/she had a major heart attack. The idea was the matrix would support the damaged area of the heart and keep the heart from destructive remodeling until the heart could heal. Then the matrix would dissolve. The project did not reach a statistical improvement, so BLPH took a big hit. BLRX, on the other hand, actually lost only some potential residuals. BLRX has a couple of very good projects in the hopper, and Novartis recently took a stake in the company in exchange for the right to co-develop three compounds. BLRX dropped around 40 cents, but I think that is overdone. When Novartis picks a compound I expect the stock will pop nicely. Oh, by the way, BLRX has a pretty good chunk of money to fund its research.
I voted for George Bush in his first election. I thought he was a good guy, and I liked his dad. I was very disappointed in Bush because he played while Cheney and the neocons ran the show. I think Bush finally figured out that he was just a pawn for Cheney, and I believe that led to a bit of a break in their relationship toward the end of his second term. I never voted for Obama. I wrote in Ron Paul in the first election because I wanted a change. McCain was a hero of mine, but he seemed to change after GW bashed him in the primaries. I just couldn't vote for McCain when he was willing to put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from becoming president. I did not vote for Romney or Obama in the last election either. Romney was probably a good candidate if he had he courage to run on his accomplishments. His desire for healthcare for all as a governor was something I admired. When he tried to cave to the conservative wackos, I believe he hurt himself with the general public. I believe I wrote in Ron Paul again. I am not a Hillary fan, and the Republicans I like are way down in the polls, so I don't know who I like at this point. I think the best candidate for the Dems. would be Gov. Mario Cuomo, but he doesn't appear to have an interest in running.
