" It could decrease by a large amount when traders like me either have to take a big loss or wait out the storm. The more money that is lost on trader gives a better return on investors "
Can you explain what you are saying, especially the: more money that is lost on trader gives a better return on investors.
Sorry for bothering you all.
I figured it out. A US hospital is OK, but don't use an instead of a
" I also was a patient in #$%$ hospital that was far below an acceptable standard."
Does anyone know why Yahoo replaced the two letters US (United States) by #$%$.
I am curious what happens to US this time.
" Compared to the U.S., Swedish hospitals are stark and depressing "
Never been in a Swedish hospital so I can't argue with you about that.
However I have been in or visited several German Hospitals and they all were as good as the ones I have been in in the US. I also was a patient in #$%$ hospital that was far below an acceptable standard.
" The doctors are depressed and unmotivated"
Depression is not unheard of in countries with little sunshine.
"Considering I know a friend who has had $200,000 in cancer treatments and was NOT dropped"
Chief, sorry to hear about your friends cancer.
Did he work for a small time employer that provided health care?
If so, there is a good chance that the ins. comp. did not renew the contract or raised rates, or changed coverage.
There are lots of examples where companies are forced to discontinue providing health care or fire the sick.
Dewey, you do not know what you are talking about.
The US does have the most expensive health care. Talk to some people that experienced in the US and overseas.
Going to a hospital as a foreigner you are basically billed as if you have no insurance. For similar care, hospital bills in the US are 50% to 100% higher than in Germany. When you have insurance and you are receiving care in your own country it becomes more difficult to compare because of the large variety of policies, in network and out of network rules for US insurances. But if you take the time you would find out that a covered US patient ends up more often with denied or restricted service and much higher co-pays than the European counterpart.
stop pumping and I will not look them up and this is insane and we won't wait for the next one.
Try to be more clever about your posts and then it will at least be entertaining.
you can only negotiate with someone that wants to negotiate. In a give and take, what are the republicans willing to give? Is their willingness not to burn my house down enough??????
Raising the debt ceiling and avoiding a shutdown is not a gift to the Democrats, it is for every American, I mean every American. What's there to negotiate.
Dewey, you claim "Bush did not blow any surplus".
Let's talk about the debt ceiling increases.
There are no increases in Clinton's last years. It took Bush just two years to blow it after inheriting a booming economy from Clinton. (Remember when Republicans, towards the end of Clinton's Adm., were talking about giving back money instead of paying down the debt, thus stimulating and overheating an already thriving economy).
Bush, in his last 6 years, nearly doubled the debt. Obama is not doing worse! In his first three years (2009-2012) the increase was less than 40%. That is actually much better than Bush, especially when you take in account the mess he inherited from Bush.
All those increases under Bush and hardly a peep out of any responsible republican, maybe there were none.

""not sure if I should sell or hold""
Apparently the #$%$ creepy site your are pumping does not give you any reliable info.
How stupid do you think people are?
And if they are, how much money do they have left to invest in order for you to make a difference?
Give it up or keep it up, I find it amusing.
you don't get it or maybe you don't want to face it.
"" The real issue was people didn't want insurance payments until they were sick.""
There are very few in this category. I also agree with you that if you are newly employed and your employer provides insurance you will usually be fine with a pre-existing condition. The problem comes when you have employment without health care or can find only part time employment. Not all poor and destitute people are lazy.
Some people do deserve help and christian charity isn't living up to what they claim.
Fox News cleverly distorts the facts to the point of lying.
Goebbels would have been proud of them. Hitler's propaganda minister convinced many to fight to the bitter end.
Good luck with that Cruz.
You are really great at twisting facts.
Those of us fortunate to already have insurance are presently paying a higher than necessary premium.
Hospitals are forced to treat the uninsured. Who do you think pays for this?
If everyone were insured my premiums over time would actually decrease or my coverage would improve.
You must have been fortunate not to have had a serious illness in your family, and I do wish you never have to experience that your insurance does not cover the proper treatment and you can't afford it.
Obama-care is an improvement to our past situation.
go for it. The more you sell the cheaper I can buy. I can use some more bashers talking about free fall.
PS I really doubt that any talk on a message board has an effect on SP.
Sorry for taking up your time, I'll shut up now.
How can you even believe in your own opinion, if you have to resort to name-calling?
Calling people pig and slug isn't much of a convincing argument.
Let's be civil.
Ibe, you might be right. But they might want to hold off production to lower the chance (and number) of a successful suits former MMR (and even PXP) shareholders.
