Extremism seems to have a similar effect on groups. It would be difficult for an extra-terrestrial visitor to Earth to tell the difference between a Taliban operative and a Cruz-like teabagger. The sound the same.
The policies of the Obama administration seem to be working. Makes one wonder if there isn't something to Ivy league education after all! If the economy thrives under intelligent presidents like Clinton and Obama and collapses under low IQ presidents like Bush, might the level of intelligence in the Oval office be correlated to the performance of the economy? There's probably a doctoral thesis in there somewhere!
FoxNews has now retired the "Failed President" theme but stay tuned, more enlightenment will be concocted soon no doubt.
“GOP leaders, by the way, y’know the man can only ride ya when your back is bent. So strengthen it. Then the man can’t ride ya, America won’t be taken for a ride.”
An you guys thought George W was mentally-challenged!
You aint seen nuttin' yet!
"...$0.8 million of CEO transition costs," and a loss of $571K. Revs dropping and back to losses.
For Petesake, have these people no respect for shareholders?
You really are an imbecile. It's obvious you are not capable of even doing the simple math which proves that the market is not pricing a sterling drop into the US shares.
Oh heck, let me show you the calculation then. I have the patience of Jobe!
Here goes, now pay attention:-
On the LSE (London Stock Exchange), CSR trades at 858 pence sterling. That's a discount to the 900 pence offer of 4.7%.
On the Nasdaq, CSRE trades at $51.78 US dollar. Today sterling is $1.51. That means that CSRE also trades at a 4.7% discount to the offer on the Nasdaq.
If the market was pricing in a future drop in Sterling, then clearly both the dollar-denominated share and the Sterling-denominated share could not show the same discount. That means, as I said before, the market is not pricing in a drop in Sterling. (That does not mean nobody cares where Sterling is going)
Do you understand yet?
Think needle-craft, that's my advice for you. You should not risk your family savings on something for which you have zero understanding.
That's a valid and intelligent point I made. It's still true today. The math is simple, do it and see for yourself. What you said I said is completely different. Perhaps you're not able to understand the difference. An intensive course in reading comprehension might be the best investment you could make at this point, followed up with a course on the importance of being honest for the sake of credibility!
"When I previously said the Pound VS US$ conversion rate is the greatest risk here, you said, nobody's worried."
No I did not say that, You made that up as well.
What kind of imbecile posts lies on a message board that are easy to check?
Sarah and Hillary would make for an interesting debate. An imbecile and a seasoned political Ivy leaguer! But we'd all be watching Sarah. Who cares if she makes any sense. She's hot!!!!
True. At today's Sterling rate of 1.50, the price is $54. Hopefully this deal closes soon. There's very little to stop it closing. Just UK approval. What they're waiting for, given that there's nothing they could object to, is a mystery - the slow wheels of bureaucracy presumably.
You can't expect the president to do everything. He has rescued the US economy, brought our young soldiers home, allowed 10 million more people have medical insurance, guided us through the GOP-created financial collapse, helped hard-working immigrants the opportunity to care for their us-citizen children, set the agenda for 2016 that ensures Hillary will be our first female president, etc. etc.
The list never stops. it goes on and on and on .........
And now you want him to take care of your personal portfolio! Have you no shame?
Get off your lazy ass and help yourself!
Today, the market has decided BAC is worth $8.5B more than it was worth yesterday based on absolutely nothing.
We need some sort of rational future earnings discounting tool. Clearly the market is a random guessing machine, thrown hither and thither by overweight players who can never agree with themselves two days running.
And this is the only option left for people to save for retirement. What a cluster-f c u k.
You need to talk to George W. about the debt. He, and that total lunatic, Cheney, decided to go to war with the only country in the world with zero tolerance for terrorism. If that was not bad enough this brain-dead duo further decided that instead of paying the astronomical cost of that war, they would instead put in on the national debt and for good measure , and to make the debt number even bigger, they would also cut taxes.
That's the origin of the debt Obama has struggled to reduce.
They're only lies in the Fox Echo chamber and, luckily, the populace of that location is aging out. Average age there is now over 70 and even the sexy Megan K is not able to attract new audience members at the rate the existing audience is checking out. Perhaps there's hope after all.
Over on MSNBC, they're practically genuflecting before pictures of Saint Obama, wondering how any president can be this good. Rachel is practically out of control and irritating the #$%$ out of many with her anti-Fox exaggerations.
Then here in the real world, we all have to admit Obama is not perfect but he's a lot better than what might have happened. Things have turned out exceptionally well considering the total disaster he was handed.
After inheriting a complete shambles from the GOP with :-
- a collapsed financial system due to GOP deregulation on 'advice from American Enterprise Institute
- unemployment growing at alarming rates over 10%
- America at war with 2 countries due to idiotic mistakes of Bush & Cheney
We are now again at peace with:-
- unemployment back to normal levels
- job creation qtr after qtr for years
- economic growth at 5%.
This is one for the record books folks. We can only hope we learn from out mistakes and make certain we don't put the likes of Bush & Cheney back at the helm.
Imagine the absolute disaster that would likely have ensued had Romney won and implemented all the wrong policies. Romney was in complete disagreement with the policies proposed by Obama, policies which returned the United States to economic prosperity.
