Maligning the reputation of a brave purple heart medal winner, and enhancing the reputation of a person who never saw any action! What has become of us, are we that naïve? or has Right Wing TV and talk shows has damaged any semblance of truth in political process?
We would have been a far better and prosperous country had Kerry won. He would have ended the war early, we would have peace and prosperity for all Americans.
Can you name one positive idea from Republicans? Why not let Hillary Clinton define her ideas, are you her spokes person? Speak for your own party!
Every Republican candidate, talk show host have gone way over board, due to lack of their own ideas. You will convince no one with attacks on Hillary Clinton. Give us your ideas, let Hillary define her own policy. I have not heard a single negative statement from Ms. Clinton or an attack on any candidate.
Sorry to disappoint you, Savage is a paid mercenary he gets paid to instigate. He is only interested in his $$$$$$$$$. If you make more than $1 million a year by all means vote for Republicans, however if you make less than 500K you are being fooled by these talk show hosts, they make millions while making you their tool for spreading their misinformation.
You are probably a smart and a good person, but you are very naïve to believe a "Politician" and "Fair and Balanced TV" , If you are so worried, go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and protest.
Sure they are qualified in their area of expertise and education. However, Hillary Clinton is far better qualified to be the President of USA.
Do you think you can convince anyone that you are trying to inform them? What is the purpose of your posts? Talk show hosts will sell you any garbage you are willing to listen to. They laugh their way to the bank. Enough said, do something productive with your skills.
Perhaps you will find true conspiracies if you researched Republicans. If you keep looking for FOX FABRICATED FAIR tales, you will spend you life time going in circles.
Clarification, Warren Buffett: If BRK drops below 120% Book value, he would buy back, essentially a " PUT" is in place.
Another good reason to buy Berkshire is Warren Buffet's commitment to buy back shares if they fall below 20% (not sure if 20% is exactly correct its some where around that) of book Value
In 1996, Buffett created Class B shares (BRK.B), offering investors the ability to invest in Berkshire Hathaway for, initially, one-thirtieth the price of a Class A share of stock. A 50-to-one stock split in 2010 sent the ratio to one-1,500th. Class B shares carry correspondingly lower voting rights as well. Buffet stated that the purpose of creating the Class B shares was to give smaller investors the opportunity to invest directly in Berkshire Hathaway, rather than only participating indirectly through buying mutual funds that mirror Berkshire Hathaway's holdings.
One benefit of holding Class B shares is flexibility. If an investor owns just one share of Class A and is in need of some cash, the only option is to sell that single share, even if its price far exceeds the amount of capital the investor needs to access. In contrast, a holder of Class B shares can liquidate part of his or her Berkshire Hathaway holdings, just up to the amount needed to meet cash flow requirements. Another benefit of Class B is that its much lower price means that BRK stock can be passed to heirs without triggering the gift tax as passing Class A shares does.
My thinking only so discount it : The primary reason for creating B shares was to help share holders of acquired companies to differ taxes, not every share holder had a large enough position to get even a single share of BRK if they wanted shares in lieu of cash, this way they could be given shares of BRKB without tax consequence, i.e. taxes differed.
Additionally A class shares can be converted to B class but not the other way around.
Is that a statement or a question? Berkshire is a steady stock with no large swings. If you need cash sell a few shares.
Don't you think Its the cow owners responsibility to prevent cows from wandering on to the high way? In case of TRN it is the drivers' responsibility to drive sober within speed limits. TRN is responsible for complying with the Codes and customer specifications.
Don't you ever get tired of blaming Democrats? Where are the WMDs? Fox and their friends have nothing better to offer, so they try to blame Democrats.
title: Intense heat melted steel supports in Trade Center
authors: Daniel Scarpinato
Although the impact of the jetliners was strong, it was the heat from the explosion that most likely caused the buildings to collapse, experts say.
Richard Ebeltoft, a structural engineer and University of Arizona architecture lecturer, speculated that flames fueled by thousands of gallons of aviation fuel melted the building's steel supports.
Any design change must receive independent engineer verification, complete and thorough independent review and certification by a professional engineer, manager review and signature, client review and approval before it can be implemented. I have not seen the procedures for design changes at TRINITY, however I see no reason why they would not conform to a similar standard. I doubt any one would sign their name if they had doubts. I wish TIRINITY would publish the results of their review and accompanying documents for transparency in this instance. They may eventually after the law suits are resolved. Inspection procedures are also reviewed after a design change. What concerns me is why the lost the original case, information will eventually be available.
WTC collapse due to high temperatures caused by ignition of jet fuel. You need to have all data to analyze each criteria. Just like Going to IRAQ without doing home work does not give true answers.
BWP has been the worst performer by far in their sector. Time for management to take responsibility for underperforming.
