Reconciliations with Cuba long overdue, to rectify the mistakes of the Isenhoure / Kennedy years of disasters dealing with the Cuban situation. Batista was a brutal dictator, and puppet of the mob and the CIA. While giving Batista and his cronies political asylum in this country, after Castro overthrew the military dictatorship assisted by a number of U.S. volunteers, countless attempts were made on Castro's life presumably by the CIA, but the old man overcame them all including a failed invasion of Cuban dissidence launched from Fla. backed by U.S. You wonder why this U.S. educated, x- Cleveland Indian (farm league)baseball pitcher, wanted to receive acceptance from the U.S. when he liberated his homeland, and both U.S.parties said no, we won't help you, find some one else to buy your sugar and finance your new Government, we got to protect our friends and farmers. So Fidel ended up in the camp of the Soviets, and Mr. Khrushchev, and a handful of missiles 90 miles off U.S. shores. Big mistake by both parties, to have left this ever happen . Thanks to Obama, this U.S., unilateral embargo, and 50 year old blunder finally ends. Good move Pres. your legacy of achievements needed this one.
Haven't you heard, the Ruskies are selling gold, the slide down will get steeper from here.
You are partially correct about it's demise with the death of Kennedy in 63' The Johnson years were a catastrophic failure both ,nationally and internationally. The Clinton years could be called a full re- errection , both for Bill and the nation's economy. As for 2016', well who be an electable GOP "messiah". Time is running out, and present GOP polls favor Jeb Bush. If that's the best the GOP has to offer, get ready to experience another Bush defeat, by the Clinton team.
SINCE YOUR 81 YEARS OLD YOU REMEMBER THE Clinton YEARS WHEN CRUDE dropped to AROUND $13 A BARREL. AND GAS about$1.25 A GAL. at the pump.You might start thinking about a charity in the next few weeks...Listen up old timer, this drop in crude continues until the Saudis' cut back production. As for the drillers, no one is drilling new wells for $50 a barrel , back log or not.
I'm sure I've had more quality honey's in my Lexus, then you'll ever get in your modified convertible, but you will get more traffic tickets.
If you think the invasion of the Ukraine will cause crude to rise, just the opposite is true. Beside, the European winter will leave the Ukraine with little Russian crude supply. As in past history the Russian winter has always allowed Russia to prevail in it's conflicts with it's European adversary's. Even the Germans are afraid to have Putin cut back energy supplies.
Sorry for your losses. But the bottom will not be in till crude is in the 50's, according to the Iranian's. I got my first RIG when they acquired my Global Marine years ago. never bought more till it got to 19 and change, last week. plan to buy more when crude is around $53-$55, it will be their shortly, world markets will support $ 50 a barrel according to the Saudis, but no one will be drilling new wells at $50 a barrel/ crude. I suggest you sell some for tax lose against your other profits, wait at least 30 days and buy back the same cash amount you sold for. Be assured the drillers will all be lower in 30 days, as crude keeps dropping. Good Luck..
I believe last split was 2007'. Dis is getting too pricy as a stocking stuffer from grandma and grandpa to the grand kids. A 3 for 2 split could be in the near future once we go thru 99..
The enemy of my enemy is my alley. Iran's enemy is ISIS, Syria's enemy is ISIS, both would make better allies then enemies, at this time.
Their isn't enough air time to report all the minority crime in any major city. In my city if the nightly news eliminated all the daily, reported minority crimes, the news would consist of only a sports, and a weather report.
When you EARN respect, through your behavior, instead of demanding respect for your race, is the only time you should receive it.
Correction, few, if any cops are responsible for killing children, those fatalities are usually the result of gang bangers and drive by's, in the minority communities of this country. But, Sharpton, Jackson, and Faracoon, never care to protest those murders.
Food stamps, that's a drop in the national budget bucket, wait till O'bama care covers all those illegal wet backs and their families, that have been given amnesty.
I liked it at 19 and change, so I bought it at 19 and change., plan to buy more at 16 and change, as crude moves to $60 a barrel.
Just another overgrown street felon who refused to submit to the law, when told not to resist arrest. Wasn't the first, won't be the last. When a cop tells a felon to "give up, or else", and the felon puts up a fight, don't complain about the consequences of the " or else"..
