    If platinum gets even with gold again, I would put a spread, sell gold, buy platinum equal weight. This don't come around too often, but spread is down to about $110 now and tightening up. Always been good for $200 per OZ, but like watching grass grow. Just going long, for now looks like dead money. Percentage for gain if metals get hot, silver gives the best bang for the buck. EFT's.

    DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit's water department defended its shutoff policy Monday and warned that free service to people with unpaid bills could be "very devastating" to the bottom line.

    Judge Steven Rhodes set aside Detroit's bankruptcy trial to hear evidence in a controversy that has been boiling all summer. A coalition representing low-income residents is asking Rhodes to suspend water shutoffs and restore service to people who have lost it.

    The water department would be violating Michigan law and breaking agreements with bond holders if forced to supply water and ignore overdue bills, attorney Sonal Mithani said.

    The "humanitarian concerns are very compelling" but fairness is critical, too, Mithani said, noting that 60 percent of Detroit residents are paying for water on time.

    Opponents essentially are arguing that "every resident has the inherent right to free water," she said.

    A total of 60 percent of Detroit residents have up to-date paid water bills. The other 40% feel they are entitled to free water. Free electricity of course goes hand in hand. When you have the Government giving free handing outs, logic only dictates city's should too. No doubt Obama & Eric Holder will have to step into this raciest Detroit City Government.

    Obviously it's not a $20 dollar stock today, only because the market has not decayed to the point. I do know when someone yanking my chain!! LOL Stop it!!!

    Without a doubt!!! I think the agents thought he was black, otherwise he would he would have been on a slab. It's really unbelievable someone could make into the White House,much less with half a foot!! I am surprised they didn't have a bottle of wine, cheese and crackers waiting for him.

    Sad to say, totally agree with you. Nothing getting better, just worst. I guess I should be happy I am 77! Even back in the 50, 60, 70 I thought those were the best of times never to be seen again.

    I have 5,000 shares up now 23.65, penny above the close. Was a phoney close. NTI still over priced, and I continue to bet against it. At best, $20 stock if they can at the least do a 10% distribution, and I highly doubt they can. Re-read the JP Morgan down grade, as I can't find anything in it to change my mind. In the current market, I think CVRR is a $21-$22 value and much more attractive than NTI. We in a bear market here, and nothing going to change for the time being.
    Hang on if you want, or drop out and buy cheaper.

    Your much to cynical, I think! LOL Really what they are proposing would be a nightmare to enforce. They would never think to just raise the fence a few feet higher would they. I really do think if an agent had acted and shot the guy on the steps, he would still be crucified! One just can't be too PC correct today.

    It's no 'secret' that morale in this service is at new lows with little respect for those who they should be putting lives on the line to protect. NEVER in the history of the Secret Service, in charge of guarding the White House, ever let someone get so close to the WH, much less IN! The big question is why. This fence jumper should have been taken down long before he even got close to the WH, much less in. At some point, a sharp shooter should have put an end to the threat before he got in. Then would that agent be more concerned if he did take deadly action, would he then be in a legal mumble jumble. I think without a doubt he would have been with all the second guessing, family ready to sue, examples to be made.

    Just because the Obama's had just left for Camp David should have not changed the how it was handled. The WH was not empty, and who knows what was in his head as to what he had in mind. I think being made a scape goat is always on law enforcement officers minds.

    The Secret Service screwed up Friday night. In a mind-boggling breach of security, a troubled former Army sniper named Omar J. Gonzalez allegedly jumped the fence at the White House, sprinted to the front door and walked in. It wasn’t until he got inside that a Secret Service officer guarding the door stopped him.

    And now the Secret Service — which hasn’t exactly covered itself in glory the past few years — wants us to pay for its mistake, to once again intrude on more public space and make suspects out of millions of visitors, residents and office workers who come near the White House every day. To further encroach on the country’s most important values: our openness and our freedom.

    The security gurus think they might want to keep people off the sidewalks around the nation’s most famous residence. Or maybe screen tourists a block away from the White House. They want to Anschluss even more public space to expand The Perimeter around 1600 Pennsylvania, amping up the feeling of hostility, fear and paranoia that already pervades the heart of our nation.

    I think Peggy gives Obama much too much credit. Other than that, a very interesting take on her part.

  • Now, you have to send the little woman (well not so little), out to do a man's job. What a piece of milk toast we have running the country.

    DES MOINES, Iowa – Democratic candidates finally have found an Obama they're not afraid to be seen with.

    While President Obama dutifully avoids battleground races this midterm season, first lady Michelle Obama is tiptoeing into the fray in a bid to drum up votes for party allies in tight contests.

    The president's better half stumped for the first time in a 2014 race earlier this month, hitting the trail for Georgia Senate Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn. And she's expected to travel to Iowa soon in support of Senate candidate Rep. Bruce Braley.

    The logic behind dispatching the first lady isn't hard to grasp. While the president's approval ratings are hovering around 40 percent, rendering him political Kryptonite to Democrats in tough races, Michelle Obama's are considerably higher -- 62 percent, according to a summertime Pew Research Center survey.

    "They are looking for an A-lister they can find except for President Obama," said Amos Snead, former spokesman for former-House GOP Whip Roy Blunt (now a senator). He added: "I think it's telling that of the two, six years into a presidency, the first lady is the only one who can go out there with them."

    Recommend when the spread was $2 plus between NTI & CVRR in NTI favor, to buy CVRR and short NTI equal weight. This as I pointed out was a low risk trade and I am still holding it.

    Not everything worked out though, as I got trap into 8k of CVRR long for the EX run, aside from this spread trade. I have taken my loss and got out of the 8k longs in the $24.50 to $24.00 area. Still booked a 16K loss, but the spread now has me slightly on the plus side. I had plan to sell the 8K a few days before EX as I generally do. Hard to foresee a refiner fire. Took the .96 so that help some. I am holding out for NTI to get to $1 less than CVRR, then I will cash out. I will look at getting long CVRR about month from now for EX run, assuming one to be had. Will depend if the bears continue to take a dump on the refiners & drillers. I am looking for about .70 distribution for CVRR. However it's also easy to see PPS get into the $21 between now and then. Still like SDRL, but not here.

    Everything on my level II is red today. LOL! Good thing I am very light on stocks and would not be surprised to see a good sell off, as well over due. Every things getting cheaper so why jump into the fire until we get some positive news for the oil patch. Just think what a little 10% market correction would do about now.

    Well, whatever the motivation looks like they will get a free trip back anyway on our dime. Lots more are lost in the system.
    Your right, they could have picked any other spot and walked across. Not very bright, and we are trying to train them?

  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees are leaving at much higher rates than workers across the rest of the federal government, making it difficult for the agency to fulfill its mission of combating emerging threats ranging from terrorism to cyber attacks, a Washington Post report reveals.

    Interviews with current and former officials reveal that a dysfunctional work environment and low morale are the factors leading employees out of the agency at nearly twice the rate of the overall federal government. They're often lured by much more lucrative jobs at private security companies that have sprung up around Washington since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

    The turnover spans the entire agency, which brought 22 different federal departments together when it was established in 2002 and employs more than 240,000 people.

    The terrorism intelligence arm, the Washington Post notes, has been through six directors during President Obama's six years in office. Six different commissioners have helmed U.S. Customs and Border Protection, with four acting as caretakers because they were never confirmed by the Senate. After five years without a confirmed commissioner, Customs and Border Protection finally got a permanent head when R. Gil Kerlikowske was confirmed by the Senate in March. CBS

    As it's shoved into our faces on a daily basis, this administration is anything but impartial. She has not one thing to be concerned about, thus reason she's just rubbing it in. Everyone in this administration gets a free pass!
