you posters are a joke, you don't care that corporations like GE pay negative federal taxes or the last Admin. was using warrantless wire tapping of US citizens or that Federal spending increased 104% by the last Pres. yet you go on a rant about some other countries tax rates.The beauty of the Constitution is that it can always be changed. The beauty of the Constitution is that it makes no set law other than faith in the wisdom of ordinary people to govern themselves. Our "founding parents" were pompous, white, middle-aged farmers, but they were also great men. Because they knew one thing that all great men should know: that they didn't know everything. Sure, they'd make mistakes, but they made sure to leave a way to correct them. The president is not an "elected king," no matter how many bombs he can drop. Because the "crude" Constitution doesn't trust him. He's just a bum. If you haven't figured it out yet, our elected officials are voted by the amount of money they can raise, not the wishes of the public, how can 85% of the country agree on background checks on weapons and yet not get a bill passed that would put guns out of the majority of felon's
i'm fairly certain we saw a top in the TNA today, however it isn't a major turn, it's a minor trend line in a ascending major uptrend
well $GASO hit my target of $2.75 in fact it closed at $2.68, now we'll have a little uptrend but price is still down and they keep building storage facilities in Kern County, Cal. now they are getting ready to built a very large nitrogen plant. Keep your eye on CBI, Chicago bridge and iron

in the top 1/4 of up days for April, I thought everyone knew that. Whether it's Monday or Fri.
this #$%$ has a 90% rating of being wrong, just like his Dec. 25 call that $800 spy would come before $1600
Anti-gun crusaders seem worried about the advent of a Republican administration. Heaven knows why. Republicans, in recent years, have managed to do nearly as much damage to the Second Amendment as Democrats.
In 1969, journalist William Safire asked Richard Nixon what he thought about gun control. "Guns are an abomination," Nixon replied. According to Safire, Nixon went on to confess that, "Free from fear of gun owners' retaliation at the polls, he favored making handguns illegal and requiring licenses for hunting rifles."
It was President George Bush, Sr. who banned the import of "assault weapons" in 1989, and promoted the view that Americans should only be allowed to own weapons suitable for "sporting purposes."
It was Governor Ronald Reagan of California who signed the Mulford Act in 1967, "prohibiting the carrying of firearms on one's person or in a vehicle, in any public place or on any public street." The law was aimed at stopping the Black Panthers, but affected all gun owners.
Twenty-four years later, Reagan was still pushing gun control. "I support the Brady Bill," he said in a March 28, 1991 speech, "and I urge the Congress to enact it without further delay."
One of the most aggressive gun control advocates today is Republican mayor Rudolph Giuliani of New York City, whose administration sued 26 gun manufacturers in June 2000, and whose police commissioner, Howard Safir, proposed a nationwide plan for gun licensing, complete with yearly "safety" inspections.
Another Republican, New York State Governor George Pataki, on August 10, 2000, signed into law what The New York Times called "the nation’s strictest gun controls," a radical program mandating trigger locks, background checks at gun shows and "ballistic fingerprinting" of guns sold in the state. It also raised the legal age to buy a handgun to 21 and banned "assault weapons," the sale or possession of which would now be punishable by seven years in prison.
Gun control crusaders argue that the Republicans are simply yielding to grassroots pressure, to gain political advantage. But polls show little evidence of such pressure.
looks like the price of unleaded gas could really drop here, i'm sure the Saudi's are scared to death because under $70 a barrel the #$%$ could hit the fan for them
1st off he has no clue about the market, secondly now he's becoming a expert on bombings. This attack was IMO some home grown wacko group and i'll give you afew reasons, #1 there were 4 bombs, only 2 were successful, secondly, in these situations the second bombs are normally much more powerful to catch 1st responders in the area. Any sophisticated terrorist group wouldn't have made this mistake. But then you have these Zionist like IBDMan/BOY who proclaim they are knowledgeable in these situations when in fact they want to blame some Arab group. This jerk off is a waste of skin, the sooner people like him are gone from this world the better
Just from a Fib. chart if $159.50 was the high and the low of Feb. 25/26 was a bottom then that $152-$ becomes important, whether it goes there or not is to be seen, next weeks earnings should give the answer
It won't be the earnings or anything on the income statement that will have the most importance, but rather the balance sheet. The company's credit metrics are deteriorating and the company's net debt is expected to rise to $7.5 billion. This had led to expectations that Moody's will downgrade Alcoa's debt to junk status, making the company the only non-investment grade company included in the Dow Jones average and that, in turn, is expected to eventually lead to the stock's removal from the index.
Last quarter we had actually become bullish shares of Alcoa going into its earnings release for the first time in a couple of years. It wasn't that the supply issues were changing or the debt had improved, but the Fed had started pumping more money into the financial system than during the depths of the 2008/2009 recession, mostly through U.S. Treasury buying. However, U.S. Treasuries were falling in price, pushing interest rates higher, and signaling the market was expecting inflation. That was a positive for the metal companies and a sign that shares of Alcoa could be bottoming.
Since then, however, the U.S. dollar has rallied and nearly all metals have dropped in price, including aluminum. Plus, in recent weeks, U.S. Treasuries have rallied too. The signals the market was giving are gone, and that hasn't been favorable to Alcoa. That's a particularly bad sign since before the last earnings release, Moody's had placed the company under a credit review for a possible downgrade.
In the face of declining aluminum prices, the potential savior for the company is cost cuts, and that should help the bottom line improve over the $0.06 per share earned last quarter. Whether the company can beat estimates in the face of declining aluminum prices is a toss up, and the consensus estimate has come down in recent weeks to $0.
you would seem to think that all the bears on this board would understand this, how is the velocity of money doing or core inflation?
and Stockman was part of the corruption under the Reagan Admin, along with people like Phil Gramm, Arthur Laffer, Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger. Stockman has been wrong before, so i see no need to read his books
