Looks like it. Wow, this thing went down and just never got back up.
"BK filing does NOT mean we will forego our bonuses and perks this year. You have to pay up if you want top talent. With anyone else at the controls we would have filed BK a month ago. Our ship shape top notch team delayed the obvious until today. We EARNED our bonuses!".
with what money?! No money for a dividend, but they always seem to have money for junk like this, and of course for management raises and bonuses!!!
on New Year's eve! As one of the newest millionaires of 2015, time to close the year out right. There will be plenty of cold libations and merry making as we celebrate my early retirement before the age of 30. All from shorting a shirtload of BTU shares then covering covering and covering some more. Free booze to all longs who provided the capital for my nest egg. Or course I have now gone long with a tidy little sum of shares, so hoping BTU improves in 2016 and beyond. Moose has already declined the party invitation, he abhors alcohol, which he refers to as the "devil's drink". Ahahaahahha. He will spend another New Year's at the library researching global warming and ogling little girls. Ahahahah............!!!!
Moose, you changed your alias to ovariesbong.....good for you little man. How's your woman doin....does she miss me still?! Tell her I still do her, but the smell has just gots to go!
Pernicious, dirty creeps can go right ahead and convict me for saying that Moosie's left hand doesn't know what his right hand is doing, but History, acting as the goddess of a higher truth and a higher justice, will one day smilingly tear up this verdict, acquitting me of all guilt and blame. I think that the people Moosie attacks deserve compassion, not insults, put-downs, or stereotypes. My views, of course, are not the issue here. The issue is that it's in his blood to use both overt and covert deceptions to require religious services around the world to begin with “Moosie is great; Moosie is good; we thank Moosie for our daily food”. Given that we cannot absolutely nullify the prodigality of nature, try as hard as we may, I'm afraid I have to conclude that any day now, Moosie's ideologies will create problems that our grandchildren will have to live with. That's self-evident, and even Moosie would probably agree with me on that. Even so, it is of vital importance that we search for solutions that are more creative and constructive than the typically grotty ones championed by congenitally execrable cheapjacks. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. That's why I avow that Moosie is always prating about how he is a man of peace. (He used to say that he is a bearer and agent of the Creator's purpose, but the evidence is too contrary so he's given up on that score.) The important point here is that Moosie stands for rogue authority, social directives, and onerous laws that weaken personal freedoms. Did you hear that, Moosie? I didn't think so.
There are a number of frightening facts about Moosie that I absolutely must make public. But before I do I need to go into a fair amount of detail explaining how Moosie seems to be playing the “I'm more closed-minded than you” game. Hang in there; this explanation won't take long. For openers, Moosie, using every conceivable means for his purpose, is determined to spawn a society in which those with the most deviant lifestyle, unstable behavior, or personal failures are given the most by the government. Now that's a strong conclusion to draw just from the evidence I've presented here so let me corroborate it by saying that Moosie has gotten carried away with operating on a criminal—as opposed to a civil disobedience—basis. It's pretty clear from this lack of restraint that he would organize a troika of surly brawlers, sexist airheads, and hopeless wantwits with the sole purpose of making our lives miserable, all at the drop of a hat. It's therefore imperative that we bring fresh leadership and even-handed tolerance to the present controversy, as doing so will let Moosie know that he wants nothing less than to persuade many of his nemeses to enter into a one-way “dialogue” with him. His lapdogs then wonder, “What's wrong with that?” Well, there's not much to be done with frightful, grungy thickheads who can't figure out what's wrong with that, but the rest of us can plainly see that I normally prefer to listen than to speak. I would, however, like to remind Moosie that his thesis is that anyone who resists him deserves to be crushed. That's absolutely out-of-touch, you say? Good; that means you're finally catching on. The next step is to observe that I've heard Moosie say that our unalienable rights are merely privileges that he can dole out or retract. Was that just a slip of the lip, or is Moosie secretly trying to keep us hypnotized so we don't find new pathways out of the traps that he has laid for us? There is widespread agreement there, so stay tuned.....cheers
2 thumbs down?! Looks like 2 delusional idiots on this message board. 50 cents pre-split today, I think reality is setting in.
Will get shareholder approval for more bonuses and stock options because it goes without saying you cannot attract "top talent" like we have at BTU unless you pay them lavishly whether they perform or not. Watch them go to conferences, make charitable donations, and clean out the coffers over the next year. There will be no money for dividends of course, why bother with the investors? The money will go to the top brass as they run off with everything including the toilet paper and towels in the executive restroom!
I think I could find a few homeless guys to run this thing into the ground and they would not demand 6 or 7 figure pay packages. Most would work for a hot lunch and a new pair of mittens. Why are investors so stupid to think that paying these imbeciles millions is the way to go? They have made one blunder after the next, including a reverse split that blew up in their face, a total dividend cut, and continuing to donate money to charities when these very charities decry "global warming" and act at counter purposes to BTU's mission? Time to wise up and stay away from this dog turd until they start acting smarter. I have a relatively small long position, so I will not complain if they turn this around, but each day it looks like Dumb and Dumber are competing with Beavis and Butthead to see who can make the bigger mistake!
No No! Sorry, just had to quote from my favorite Who song. But seriously folks, I would stay away from BTU until the CEO says all salaries are frozen and bonuses/stock options ELIMINATED until BTU makes a profit. Do not let their "leadership" pick this company clean like a pack of vultures on a deer carcass. Their lack of foresight and outright stupidity got them into this mess, do not let them succeed while failing. Nuff said, full disclosure, I have taken a relatively small long position in BTU to see if I can't increase my huge retirement nest egg a little more over the next year or so. Cheers to all!!!
You got that right. Crazy how shareholders rubber stamped the RS just because BTU "recommended approval". Never stopped to think that the low price might be a good thing short term and scatter the short cockroaches somewhere else. Instead they left them a feast.
May take a tiny little long position in BTU. Nothing too big, just a couple hundred grand or something. Take it out of petty cash and see what happens. Now I realize that sounds like big money to moose and traitorbj, but really it aint nothin but a thing for rich young cocky smartazze like me!
Damn that is a longazze flight! Down there visiting relatives but was none too impressed. A lot of poor schmucks living in bungalows and smoking cheap cigars. Glad to be back in the good ole US of A and sitting poolside sipping a martini. It ought to be against the law to be retired comfortably in your late 20's, but I aint complainin!!! Just got lucky that stupid voters elected a mudslime Trojan horse, twice even, and watched and invested while he took this country down the toilet. As a patriot I hated to see it, but better to be rich than poor as my grandpappy used to say. Ah well, Happy Thanksgiving to all, a truly American holiday, so I guess our imposter in chief will let a few more migrant terrorists inside our borders to celebrate.
