ibexx, Your posts are well composed so" I take my hat off to you!" Maybe you had to work hard like I did. I started work @ 16, and worked till 54.
I know nothing about the man ! What justifies ANY of these people getting this much money? I'm sure all of you have read the wealth disparity is similar to 1917, and I don't know if any of you have froze and sweat like I did almost 37 years. R L posted he did do some honest work before taking up medicine. If anyone here has done real work ,"God bless em."
Let's get the price up for us.
You would fit in with the drivers where I worked with those quips! I sat at the other end of the room;
I must have been born with Baptist or Amish genes, I heard they are conservative etc.
My wife is Soviet, so SHE knows better about Russian history that that CLOWN Cooper on t.v. today, or the clowns in the White house. Crimea was Russian back when the czars were around before Lenin. Read for yourself. The U.S. goes everywhere it wants, and claim it is o.k. We ALL are old enough to remember how the U.S. got talked into Viet Nam. The French were there before us. They will never look after our people, just look at the ghettos, or Detroit. Illinois is funded 40 cents on the dollar. Putin won't turn off the gas, and they won't push him, only Britain is a puppet of the U.S.
BIDU will be back @ $175 when this blows over !
I read the best time for the U.S. in our lifetime was the 1950's no Viet Nam, Arabs, We had the Beach Boys.And regarding our changing times,I heard 2 days ago from an old GREEK man, the idiots STILL want people to take off their shoes at the airport. Well, the U.S. always starts some b.s., now we have it! Here is the buying time for GILD and BIDU. p.s. I had a co worker whose daughter got pregnant "looking for attn" at some bar" she got it from some black male.. My friend took in the baby as family, and they got the guy for support in court.My friend dropped dead recently from a heart attack at ONLY (61 yrs old) ; his wife preceded him. He was not overweight or smoked, and I was not close. but one can expect this racial event had a part in his early demise. Also, about me; I could not dance at a Holiday Inn singles night long ago,but always remember some black guy in a Cubs uniform who danced up a storm while I stood with my 7-up. I was a good looking tall guy before gray hair, I just couldn't dance or act like James Bond. Excuse my personal info ! I got the short end in life somewhat. I didn't buy the book "How to approach women", my big gripe with life!
That snowboarder that quit the U.S. and married the Russian snowboarder, lucky guy ! I'll go pay my r.e. tax bill.
I'm holding my stock!
clarkjohn , You post is exactly what I see from the firm handling my acct selling credit spreads. The mkt is manipulated by the people in power,"that we can believe!" A correction has not happened, only that 300 pts day.
I have never heard of these people, and I saw words on a contract, "indemnify them", and "I' have expertise in these matters and business so not to hold them responsible",other firms are available in Texas that can handle drilling. He was telling me we have a 90% chance in this area.
I'm not so smart, but these papers go in the garbage ! I did not even play the computer disc.
I'm only holding GILD stock. Have a good day out in Mo.; it is too cold here.
A received a call from a "Impact Global Resources" today. He said he was familiar with Bonanza Creek, and is sending me a Fedex envelope from Colo Springs. You know what this is leading to! I don't want to talk so long with these guys,who does? Anyhow, BCEI is going up today also. I expect he would like me to send him a check for $30k,"Not me! "
I am glad I got out of those options as the prices I just saw are only slightly above what I sold for. It's not worth sweating the options for a few dimes.
Enough of these firms are pretty conservative, throwing cold water on Jan, 15 calls except for Deutsche.
ibexx warned me not to follow the momos, or "bet the farm". Mighty big of him to stick his neck out at $86.
"hurray for me and #!** to you !" I heard an old Viet Nam Vet yesterday bring this up @ the hardware store ! Take that guy in the Fla. shooting with the blacks, he snapped. I know your words are from the bible, wise words they are. My wife brought up Ponsius Pilot, "What has this man Jesus done that I should judge him !" People judge without walking in others shoes also. Wise words; and Jefferson and the others I am sure were thinking of your meaning, our world nowadays marches to a completely different beat . I will reread your post. Nice day to you in Mo.
R L I agree with you very much. Many times in my life I ALWAYS felt angry as I could never pick up on things like some. No One ever told me "how to speak to women " when I was 21, I was the "Gomer Pyle" and I had TOO hi of an opinion of nice looking women till I was 40.I GOT THE SHORT END OF THE STICK IN SO MUCH! I have not learned investing so much like you, and it gets me sick reading words like "all men are created equal"! Sick words written by dreamers in the 1770's. Pardon me, I've been "trying to" do an assignment for my daughter in social studies. I must get her out of these foolish classes as Illinois puts this in as a requirement for school;this archaic reading wastes kids time. I want her to study computer, and business,as I'm sure you want your grand kids to progress also. I just wasted time reading about Andrew Jackson. Back to "credit spreads", they DO cost commissions, and seem to offer a better bang for the buck. I am not 32 yrs old, I am 62 in a few months; time is moving on. If this does not work, I have been researching gas stations. It is more work, but one can make $100 K /yr. with the right one. One good location by our mall, had a nice young clerk( I saw he was arabic),and it is close the the interstate entrance. He said they pump 300K gals/mo. I don't know if it is true, but he hushed up when a "dirty looking tramp" came in,(arab). He said it was the manager), the dirty ol bum. If THEY can do it so can we! I am aware the U.S. gives them preferential treatment over us, and they know the tricks. p.s. I CAN see what selling spreads tries to do as "time decay" DOES work for the seller. Picking the correct bull or bear part and the right spread is the hard part.
to pay a debit and roll out some positions from March to April. With one day left Thurs,. the down movement today gave a needed buffer so I do not believe I will incur a debit. My acct. is + $14 K green right now @ 9:p.m. I will see if e-option holds this as they do their updating in the middle of the night. Catch you later.
every last dollar into the Jan 15's @ $100, and Jan.16's. The $90 just up ahead is plausible, then a little consolidation or drifting may happen speaking prudently. We're only $25 bucks off of the forecast this early in the year, but with the outlook in GILD, how could one not feel $120 by Dec.
