    Sharpie, Could you give me a little information about what these number you are posting mean? Just trying to learn a little. I think it would be beneficial to a few others here as well. Thanks.

    I was watching a story on CNN tonight. They said Obama was a Constitutional Law Professor. Obama was NEVER a Constitutional Law Professor, he was a Law lecturer at Harvard. Go check it out. I can't say for sure how he got there since his records are sealed. His subject matter was mostly derived from his mentor Frank Marshall Davis and Saul Alinsky. The truth is still out there to be re-discovered. We have all been hypnotized by the B.S. Most decent people want to believe the best about other people. That's the tool that was used to make this guy president. All I ask is to do your research and vote with a clear head in the 2014 & 2016 elections. Our collective lives depend on it. I'm making these statements here because I'm heavily invested in this stock and company. I've been on their grounds and believed in them, so I invested in them. That was before our first "half-black" president declared he would destroy coal. Is it not accurate that he is half-white? Is that offensive to anyone? It shouldn't be unless you want to disrespect his mother. Since he is not the first black president, you are now free to criticize him. Or at least the white part.

  • We may have missed a few points (I took profits too early) but we are now looking at the possibility of a much longer, stronger move. 3 year chart puts things in perspective. I'm still waiting until tomorrow for confirmation. In addition to SLW I'm looking at: GG, ABX, & SAND. GLTA.

    Ok shorts VLO up .82 premarket on 3700 shares

    You'll know what's happening with this at about 10:10. All retail before then or so I've been told.

  • President Obama was greatly influenced by the "Godfather" of community organizing. See if any of his ideas apply to the current state of affairs in this country.

    1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people
    2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and
    will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
    3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and
    this will produce more poverty.
    4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to
    create a police state.
    5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
    6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in
    7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.
    8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent
    and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    Thank you for the educational reply. I have been using TA now for about 4 years and I'm always puzzled by how many times I've seen a stock hit resistance (after what appears to be a very strong move) and fail. I'm sure there is an answer but seems unlikely a result of retail investing or coincidence. I'm looking for a gap close and reentry for the next move up.

  • elkster08 by elkster08 Jun 25, 2014 10:01 AM Flag

    If I draw a line from 6/27/13 - 2/14/14 to yesterday (1 year chart), it seems to me this needs to break and close above yesterdays high to break the previous long term trend. I would like to see the gap filled to enter for a longer trade. Also kicking myself for taking profit too early after a nice entry. Am I missing anything?

  • Solar leases were introduced in 2008 and started to take off in about 2012. As much as as 70 percent of the residential systems being installed now are financed through leases, according to GTM Research. Most of the systems in place remain in the hands of the original customer, suggesting the difficulties in selling these properties are just beginning.

    My comments: So some Obama turd will point out that the new owner will enjoy lower electric costs. Problem is, what if the old owner put the panels on an old roof? Too many things can go wrong with these systems. You would need a lawyer to look over the contract to see what you are liable for if you become the new lease holder. More reason not to put these things on your roof.

    Coal will make a comeback. People will come to there senses eventually. This administration and the demorat
    party plan to make the environment (climate change) a key platform in the next presidential election cycle. This is another Alinsky tactic. Who can argue against the pseudo-science of climate change? We all want cleaner air and cleaner water unless you are a conservative, right? That's the way they plan to play it. Only when the grid becomes unstable and the idiot environmental extremists are scratching their head wondering why their air conditioner is not working or they can't power their volt, will they wake up and realize that coal power is good. It makes the human condition better, not worse.

    Rules for Radicals being applied here. Just more B.S. from the left who have no solutions to anything. Liberalism always produces the opposite of its stated intent.
    RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

    Sentiment: Buy

    I came up with 48,547,100 based on TD Ameritrade data. Don't mean to be picky. Will need some institutional buying to get this really moving. Once it gets over 4 I'll be picking up another 5K shares.

    It's pulling back to the 200DMA today on low volume but has to hold here. You have a lot of shorts on this. If it pops to the upside on Monday I'll be jumping on-board.

    For those of you who might want to get in it's setting up nicely for a buy. I'm going to wait until after the FED meeting and see how it reacts.

    Amen. Just reinforces my argument that he doesn't care a wit about the environment. My old company (Seagate) bought the abandoned Solyndra building in CA for pennies on the dollar. They turned it into their advanced research site. At least they benefited from it.

    "Man made global warming" a total fraud

    by changlee40919 Jun 14, 2014 3:27 AM
    elkster08 elkster08 Jun 18, 2014 9:22 AM Flag

    The reality is that Obama doesn't care about the environment, he's using global warming as a whipping tool to destroy our economy. He wants to level the "playing field" for the rest of the world. Everyone needs to get a "fair shake" ya know. This imperialistic arrogant country has dominated far too long for his liking. He's using the Cloward Piven strategy on the border right now. Everything is going as planned. He hates coal because it's cheap and we have lots of it. Climate change nonsense is just a means to an end. He did promise change after-all.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Educate yourself about people who influenced Obama. It will all make sense.

    I ended up closing my position for now. I want to see what happens tomorrow with the FED. I'll be back in eventually because I believe long term in metals. I'm still holding SLW and buying physical silver.

    Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals

    by elkster08 Jun 17, 2014 1:45 PM
    elkster08 elkster08 Jun 17, 2014 2:02 PM Flag

    * RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)

    * RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)

    * RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

    * RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)

    * RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)

    * RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)

    * RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

    Sentiment: Hold

  • This is the Obama play book. Alinsky was one of his idols.
    * RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)

    * RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)
    * RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

    * RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

    * RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

    * RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun”
