I should add that any man who is over eighteen and capable should be fighting ISIS, not immigrating to another country.
I don't want anymore immigrants period, we are not even taking care of our own, and bringing in more people in need will just add to their problems.
Why isn't it possible to establish safe zones where all war migrants can be protected and live with basic necessities supplied by the US, Germany, England, Greece Poland, Russia, Italy, so on, why is the solution immigration? When the wars are over they then can return home.
Some idiots are attacking P. Obama on this date when they should be remembering it was a R. President that was in charge, when the worst terrorist attack in Americans history happened, the same boy also gave us two unnecessary wars that have yet to be paid for, tax cuts for the wealthy and the worst recession since Hoover, beating out Reagan's. Goes to show just how gullible and stupid some people are.
The reason the US is still importing Saudi oil is, "The giant Motiva oil refinery, which just completed a $10 billion expansion that makes it the largest processor of gasoline, diesel and other petroleum products in the United States, is owned by Saudi Aramco and Royal Dutch Shell in a 50-50 partnership.
Saudi Aramco’s investment in the refinery expansion is meant to ensure that Saudi Arabia will retain an important market for its crude in the United States at a time when American politicians are declaring their intention to wean the country off imported oil."
Texas Refinery Is Saudi Foothold in U.S. Market

Don't let the word liberal fool you, his dad was far from what you think is. Latter on that.
Why does spend now, pay later not work for a country, when that is how private business works. Do you know of a corp that doesn't borrow or dilute shares to invest? Its capitalism man that's how it works. The government is injecting money directly into the economy, not the top down conservative dribble down BS that has done nothing except make the rich richer.. When you put people to work at good paying jobs they guess what? spend. Spending means sales for goods and services, and that means businesses stay in business and gives room for new businesses to start. But, of course he is a politician so it is now a wait and see if he walks the talk.
"EVERYONE on this board has pointed out the strong fundamentals of PGH, " except me, i pointed out the world's economy was not improving actually getting worse, and without increasing demand abundant cheap oil in the mid east would keep oil prices down. Europe, South America, Canada, China all are having economical problems, I don't see this oil rally lasting.
RB you preaching to the choir, but not for the your reasons, I hate wind power it blots the sky lines, destroys nature. I'd much rather have nuclear than that, because there are some promising new reactors being developed. Nuke is like the Oldsmobile first diesel car, they converted a gas engine to diesel, and the diesel just beat the heck out of the block designed for gasoline, it barely went 30,000 miles before falling apart. Point is Oldsmobile fixed the problem with a new heavy duty reliable engine that could handle diesel, but it was to late the Old's diesel got a bad reputation that it never fully recovered from, nuclear suffered a similar fate. Robert Stone did a documentary on nuclear energy named, "Pandora's Promise." changed my views on it. Of course the real problem is over population but controlling that is a lost cause, so we go on until nature rectifies the imbalance.
should not get wrapped up in company fundamentals, "its the economy stupid." In other words stocks may look good now but if there is no growth, or a contraction in the economy stocks won't look so good then.
The US economy is seventy percent dependent on the consumer, yet the consumers real wages have been in decline, and the numbers of middle class have been shrinking. This does not look good for most stocks, cutting costs will only go so far, sooner or latter slowing demand will outpace companies ability to keep cutting costs and selling assets. The stock market has been taken over by the rich, the middle class is all but gone, and without the middle class buying power, companies can't sell enough goods and services and the downward spiral continues.
"KILLING THE HOST," written by Michael Hudson lays it out very well of why the top down economy hasn't worked, nor will it.
My advice don't buy without an exit plan, and use stop lose orders. What we have seen so far is just a harbinger of worst things to come.
My solution is tax those that can afford to pay after, all they are the only ones that have benefited from the gw BuSh great recession, in fact most are more wealthy now than they were before the crash they are responsible for. Cut taxes on working people, roll back trade agreements that have killed manufacturing in the US, deport illegals, stop and forgive student loans, education should be an investment in our country not another way for the rich to make money. Too many workers are taxed at thirty percent their taxes should be cut in half, while the rich like romeny pay 13% on what money they can't hide offshore. Stop predatory loans such as pay day loans, lower credit card interest rates to 6%, as it is some rates can reach 27%, some with an additional charge for late fees. Banks get their money for almost free then they loan it out at usury rates. There are many ways to put money into the pockets of the consumer, and all of them mean take it back from the rich thieves.
I know people like you don't understand things, that is why I posted a book that you should read, it explains what has happened to the middle class. A couple of examples, people are actually renting back houses the lost from hedge funds that bought them from banks for a dime for a dollar. Houses home buyers lost during the gw Bush deregulation look the other way regime. No real estate no equity, no home loans or secured bank loans no middle class. And how banks make risky loans because they don't intend to carry the contract.
Many people have no clue as to what the rich have done to this country, they have all but taken over the airways, they no longer give us unbiased news, what we get is infotainment and or what they want us to hear.

Who Stole the American Dream? and "Rebooting the American Dream:" both by Thom Hartmann
I don't own PGH and if you have been listening to me you would have saved yourself tons of money, I sold at about seven. If what you say about FDR is true and I doubt it is, that doesn't let gw BuShit off the hook. And for your information the second world war lasted from 1939 to 1945. gw BuShit war began on Mar 19, 2003 and lasted throughout his administration which ended on January 20, 2009. He promised the war would be over in six or seven months. No comparison Sir! Hands down gw BuShit is the worst president ever. Stating facts doesn't make my life troubled, what troubles me is fools like you, who obviously voted for him, and continue attempting rewrite his legacy.
The slowing US production and consensus of record production from OPEC will narrow the supply and demand in the oil glut market. However, mounting speculation of rising crude oil production from Iran, due to easing of western oil sanctions, could extend the oil glut market. Meanwhile, OPEC’s production rose by 13,000 bpd to 31.54 MMbpd in August 2015—compared to July 2015. Even at the current production levels, OPEC projects a global surplus of 1.23 MMbpd in 2016. Saudi Arabia is OPEC’s largest crude oil producer. It produced 10.27 MMbpd of crude oil in August 2015."
If you compare historical gold and oil charts gold follows the price of oil, as oil goes up gold goes up as oil goes down gold goes down. It wasn't a coincidence when gas hit its high of over four dollars, gold also hit its high of over eighteen hundred dollars.
an interesting article out today, they don't believe in electric cars because it takes to long to charge a battery, not sure about that, but that was in the article. They think Fuel Cells will win out over fuels and batteries. If HYSR tech works on a commercial level.
Canada dumping austerity can only be good for oil. His borrowing will go into rebuilding their infrastructure, its an investment in Canada and that's good for oil. However Canada by itself can't move the needle in any significant way their country is to small, now if the US follows suit, then you will see oil recover in a big way.
Mitthead Romney is a thief, his accountants and lawyers find ways around our financial rules and regs to pilfer the US. One example, Bane Capital exported every Delphi job to China, while collecting at least fifteen million from the US treasury, money that was intended to keep American businesses from going bankrupt and laying off workers.
The community organizer saved, the US from the colossal mess ups of the first R. President with a MBA. Albeit probaly a temporary reprieve, since Wall Street and the Banksteers have not been put on a short leash, and have not only continued the practices that lead to the world wide melt down, but have doubled down on them, another melt down is in the cards.
I'm in agreement with your points, but in the defense of the populace many never get the pure truth. In order to keep people from uniting they are bombarded by falsehoods, half truths, and twisted facts. R. want democracy as long as they define what it is, and if the populace don't want what they offer, they simply steal elections. The group Anonymous claimed they stopped voter theft in the last election, the book "Matrix of Deceit," is one of a number of books that give proof to voter theft by the right. They have over four hundred outlets that form the opinions of their listeners, they claim the major news outlets are liberal, but when an anchor reported that gw BuSht was AWOL from the National guard, he was fired even though what he reported was thoroughly vetted. Besides voter theft, they also have mastered Gerrymandering, and voter suppression. If the populace got the whole truth and were allowed to vote, R. would sit in the back rolls of our government just as they did for fifty years after FDR's New Deal, that's why they have to lie and cheat.
Even though the number of rigs has dropped by more than half since prices began falling in June of last year, U.S. output is down just 3.3 percent from a four-decade high."
And POTUS is in AK talking about Armageddon if the world doesn't lower its C02, translation not good for oil.
I hope you guys are not anti government, because it is the only thing that can rectify the problems with CEO's that you are talking about. It should be obvious by now the only thing powerful enough to deal with them is the righties hated government, and they have all but taken the government over. Laws are being written by companies and passed word for word by our supposedly Representatives and Senators, when it comes to fairness and transpency most are not good for the general public. Greed will always take a back seat to morals, most can and will justify anything if left to their own devices, particularly when it comes to money. "Power Corrupts & Money Corrupts Absolutely."
Most of the righties claim to be Christian but are not in practice. When talking about wealth Jesus said you can not have two masters. When a rich merchant told him I want to follow your teachings to be like you. JC said give your wealth away to the poor, because you can't have two masters, when faced with the question of just who are you, the rich man decided he would rather be rich than a Christian, and as we know walked away.
I would love to see Jesus put people like the the Koch brothers, or Queen Elizabeth through that test. Point is we are all hypocrites, but the right who always tries to take the high ground by proclaiming their great christian values, in practice has nothing on anybody.
To continue the thought on so called green energy. "More than one record was broken in June. Scarily, it was the hottest month on record as global temperatures continue to rise thanks to climate change. More happily, United States solar power plants in June smashed the record for generating carbon-free electricity from the sun, another sign that renewable energy is increasingly becoming competitive with fossil fuels."
