Nice people. Rich. Not too smart. The kind of people Do would like to play poker with. Old man Bush call Ronald Reagan's economic plan "Voodoo Economics". Probably the worst thing old man Bush did was to procreate (that mean he had children). His son George became president after Bill Clinton left the white house.
Had Do been W's (that what they call old man Bush's son) political adviser, Do would have suggested W and wife take up residency in the Washington DC Marriott Hotel while Service Pro scrubs and scours the white house, especially the oval office (that where Clinton and Monica Lewinsky carry on). This cleaning process would go on for weeks and weeks before W would occupy the white house. There would be a "It's finally clean" ceremony. This would have established in the minds of the electorate just how vile a man Clinton was.
Instead the Bushes took a different path. Old man Bush invite Slick Willie to Kenabunkport . Old man Bush and Slick Willie went on a speaking tour. Bubba was trying to repair his image. What was old man Bush doing? Who know?
Meanwhile W spend taxpayer money like a drunken sailor (that mean like a democrat). A nice, likable guy in over his head. Meanwhile the republic suffer. W refer to Slick Willie and Hillary as his "in-laws". The poor guy doesn't "get it".
Now there another son name Jeb Bush, He thinking of running for president. It like the Kennedys. These guy think they were put on earth to run thing. Next, Chelsea will run for something. (is her father-in-law out of jail yet?)
Do has had his fill of Clintons, Bushes, and Kennedys.
Top military leaders insist that more troops are needed in Iraq. President Obama, not wanting to go back on another promise he made to his leftist base, (no boot on the ground) finally relented on the condition all the soldier wear wingtip shoe.
It good we have Arnold around to keep thing honest. Imagine, a forklift driver who claims he has 68.000 shares of AAL, right here on the TC board.
Just follow the posts. It really very easy. Arnold (bernie) just here to make a few friend. Tennis anyone?
Do believe you should listen to El Rushbo every afternoon and set your TV to Fox News in the evening. It "fair and balance" Give it a couple month to sink in.
Stop reading all the commie stuff. It not good for you.
Sometimes the cop is wrong. Most time the perp is wrong. Do doesn't prejudge. Do doesn't hold anti-cop feeling. Do look at each case one by one, each on its own merit.
In this case, the store video help. It show a huge young guy manhandling a store clerk half his size. Toxicology test show weed in the system. The young guy steal a box of cigar. A cop sees the young (high) guy walking in the middle of the street. Tells him to walk on pavement. The young guy attacks the policeman...punching him in the face. Tries to get the cop's gun.
The policeman tries to apprehend (that mean arrest) the young guy. The young guy charges the cop. The cop sends the young guy to the happy hunting ground. The grand jury look at all the evidence including eye witnesses who back up the cop's testimony.
It seem the "race hustlers" (Sharpton, Jackson, Obama, Holder, Farrakan and Clancy) should have waited for a better case. This one wasn't even close.
Welcome back, bhawksfan.
Today Do discover an excellent video from fox news. Google "Dobbs: Obama not acknowledging the evidence"
Best yet summation of the Gentle Giant situation. Do email to about thirty people. It very important.
Skippy got into his fathers wine cabinet..
Private doesn't know what day it is.
Light blaming Ultra for his losses.
Clancy floating the idea the policeman punch himself.
Ultra calling fellow poster nasty name.
What going on here, Guy. This the first time one of your stock go down?
Dear Mr Perron,
First of all, there another guy with my name who post on the message board. He call you Mr Potato Head and say some pretty nasty thing about you. That not this Do. We have same name. It what you call a coincidence. Two guy with the same name.
Now the reason for this letter is to ask why you sell TC stock? You think something fishy?
Please share your thought.

About 25 year ago, Do heard a story on car radio which was so funny, Do had to stop driving and pull to side of the road. The host of radio show was reading from a newspaper story about a Los Angeles man who wanted to "hover" over his neighborhood. He bought some old weather balloons from an Army/Navy store, tied them to a beach chair, got himself a sixpack, sat in the chair and then cut the rope. He thought he was going to ascend about fifty feet.. Instead he shot up to about 10,000 feet. lol!! LAX got a report from a commercial pilot that there was a guy in a beach chair "floating around up there".
At least the nut had the good sense to bring a pistol with him. He shot the baloons (one at a time) until he slowly descended. This guy immediately was nominated for the Dariwn Award. (Awarded to those who improve the human gene pool by taking themselves out of it.) Google and read the sories from some of the "einsteins" who have won.
Now if you want to take yourself out of the gene pool, the quickest way is to punch a policeman who is armed with a loaded pistol.
Do call lawyer/friend Ying Chang today for an appointment. Do went to his office. Ying grab a yellow pad from office drawer. He make a line down the middle of the page and say "let take stock". (that what he always do.... get yellow pad and say "let take stock")
"What the problem ' Do"
"It my TC investment. It seem everybody on the message board think TC is doing great. The problem is the selling price is going down"
Ying made some notation on his pad.
"They make any money in recent quarter?" Ying ask.
"Yes. They increase cash by $50,000,000"
"That a lot of money, Do." he say "what this company sell?"
"Or what?" Ying ask.
Do explain about ORE to Ying. Do learn how limited this guy's knowledge was. He continue to write stuff on the pad. Do continue to explain thing to Ying but Do not sure he "got" it. This went on for about fifty minute. He excuse himself and came back with an envelope. He gave it to Do.
"That my bill"
Do open and look at invoice for $100.
"But you didn't help. You didn't tell Do why the price go down"
Ying started speaking Latin phrases that Do could not understand (if he had said amo, amas , amat Do remember those word from high school. But Ying was was pulling Latin word from left field"
When Do explain if Ying doesn't say why price go down, Do will not pay the bill.
That when Ying say "Do, something fishy. That why the price go down."
Do mutter under breath "Of course something fishy....that why Do come to you" Do wrote check for $100 just to keep peace in Chinatown,
They suppose to look out for the interest of the owners of the company (that us). When the greedy management float the idea of "stock option", the BOD is suppose to say "No. that will dilute our share holder. If you want company stock, buy it yourself (that insider trading)." That the way a good board is suppose to act.
TC's board, led by Tim Madden, didn't say no to the stock option proposal. He said "Yes, but only if you include the BOD in the plan. We want options too". That one reason why there is no insider buying. In China there is a saying "Why buy the yak when you get the milk for free?"
A few month ago, Dragon mentioned something about pooling our share somehow to be taken more seriously by Mr Potato Head. That was the start of a good idea. (maybe Dragon was bought off. maybe the BOD got to him. Anyone know if Dragon has stock option?)
There is a San Diego company (RILLC) which invests money for CALPERS. They would buy a big chunk of a company's stock (!0%) and, in turn, get a board seat or two. They did this with Home Depot, Conway and a few other. Just imagine if we had one honest guy (or gal, clancy) on the BOD to say "NO" when they try to plunder the treasury".
Do notice your "airlineprofessor" ID has about 68,000 shares of AAL. That more than 2 million dollar. That pretty good for a forklift driver.
Here's a post from Arnold on the AAL board:
"while ago, both I and airlineprofessor told you and the board that international demand had softened. You and some of the others fought against this which we see absolutely confirmed by DAL's traffic report this morning. ie DAL specifically mentioned the PRASM DECREASE in international which offset some (thankfully only some) of the strong domestic U.S. market.
Are you mature enough to admit that you were wrong to give me such a hard time for posting the truth? "
Actually, Arnold, the question is for you. Isn't it time to contact your friend, Pud and tell him you're a fraud?
People, be careful on the internet. Lots of "Arnolds" out there!!
