I agree completely, Ryan. But maybe we should look at it in a different way. If they exert such great effort to coopt your name they obviously find you both extremely intelligent and remarkably adept. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then maybe it makes sense to be honored by their obvious jealousy over your mastery of their pathetic lives. Actually, it proves they are sad little losers, but let's put a positive spin on it. The rest of us think your awesome.
You are HARDLY the opposition. It's like matching wits with a witless wonder. You don't have a single productive idea....just rants, lies and deception.
LOL. Simpletons are always so inane and you prove it with every post. It's sad that any board has to deal with dull creatures like you.
I'm not responding to a name but an idea. And who said I 'hated' anyone and any ideology? Hatred destroys the hater, which I'm guessing your struggle with most of the time. You're a strange little dude, now aren't you?
Now you see, garrd, that diatribe is why reasonable people cannot have an intelligent discussion. "ALL" part time jobs is, on its face, inaccurate. And there is not a single educated person who would support the contention that the proposed pipeline would create 350,000 jobs...the notion is preposterous.
Your ignorance is manifest when you propose that you 'fear' a gay person. How ignorant does a person have to be to make that kind of statement? You must be a very sad little creature, totally lacking in common sense or decency.
You are exactly right, the trend begun well before he became president continued during his first couple of years, just as they did when Regan became president. It would seem to be fair by acknowledging that his policies, whether we agree with them or not, had a substantial impact on the eventual outcome.
You are also right about the total dollars that make up the national debt, but economists have consistently said that an analysis of our national debt has to be viewed in relation to GDP. If you make $50,000 a year a personal debt of $30,000 would be high, but if you were making $100,000 per year that debt would obviously be more manageable. I'm not sure why you demure to a charge that was never made (race, ethnicity or politics).
As you know, facts are easily and often manipulated so I'm not sure either of our positions are clearly supported. The original position I responded to was the writer's proposition that Obama was bad for the stock market. It is clear that is unsupportable.
I appreciate your civility.
Hi Ryan, thanks for your response, but I knew he was not you. I respect both your point of view and the class with which you present it. I know you're a great guy.
Your problem, besides inherent stupidity, is that you approach the subject as if the two candidates are the same. It would be like trying to decide whether Billy Graham or Adolf Hitler would be a better role model for a discussion on ethics and in your way of thinking, believing they are equally qualified. Unless you first compare one product to another, your speculation is meaningless.
"Obama is going to continue to tank the markets...." Has it escaped your notice that when he became president the Dow was around 8,000 and now it is near 18,000? I'm guessing facts really don't matter to you, but let me go on. Have you bothered to notice that when he became president the unemployment rate was 10% and it is now 5.5%? Or are you aware that when he became president the GDP was -5.4% and is now +2.8%. And what about the deficit as a percentage of GDP? When he became president it was 9.8% and now it is 2.2%. But of course facts don't matter to idiots like you.
Your ilk have been predicting doom for years and it hasn't happened. Why would anyone think you'd be right on this point? Are you dumb enough to suggest that there has not been an ongoing arms race for the last 100 years?
Excellent point, yay hoos like Robert are quick to criticize, but painfully short on alternatives.
By what standard do you make that judgment, Robert? When this administration came about unemployment was over 10%...it is now 5.5%, the Dow was under 8,000...it is now nearly 18,000, GDP was -5.4%....it is now +2.8%, the deficit as a percentage of GDP was 9.8%....it is now 2.2%. So how do you determine success of a government, Robert? Plus, your lack of education is abundantly clear when you write, "I've woke up...." A second grader would know better.
Robert, surely you're smart enough to realize it was our "false war" on Iraq that destabilized that part of an already tenuous world. Weak thinkers never take time to understand the complexity of an issue, they just regurgitate the Fox News talking points. The country isn't weak because of this president, we're weak because we have an education system that produces undisciplined, and as a result, ignorant people. What would YOU do, Robert? Bomb China?
Jay, surely you realize the power of this stock is in it's future. Basically, what you're saying is that you can predict the future and know exactly when the company will release important data. I think it's pretty clear, you cannot. As we've pointed out to a number of posters who want to treat this like a mature stock (including the painfully ignorant Zacks) if you wait for the fundamentals to justify the price you will miss out on every critical upswing. I just don't understand why folks like you (and Zacks) can't see that. But I would defend your right to preach your view at all cost.
Hi Rob, always great to see you. Everyone is fine. The tornado hit west of us. We had strong winds, hail and lots of rain, but all in all, just a typical OK spring storm. I have to say, Rob, I'm even more excited about this company than I was AVNR. They have many more possibilities working and their canvass is dramatically larger. Oddly, it feels a lot like AVNR in many respects...and I mean the trends we experience just before big things started to happen. I'm also incredibly happy to get to own a company whose technology could actually change the world for the better. I believe this type of science will eventually be used in many other applications. I just hope they can remain independent. We should have another fun ride. So happy we're on the same horse again. Getting ready to head to Bella Vista, for the brothers golf outing (first weekend in May). We're renting an amazing house on a lake....may bring in a chef for a couple of meals....can't wait.
Good to see you here again....it's so nice to run into a long term friend. Birdy did an amazing job of summarizing the apparent strengths of NVAX. If he's only half right we should experience some solid profits. Like AVNR, I'm sure we'll experience the typical ups and downs of the biotech world. Also, like AVNR, I think this is the right technology for our times and that makes the investment exciting. My best to you.
The problem I have with the article is its fundamentally flawed interpretation of value. Whether NVAX has a product ready to go to market soon is not the issue. It's real value is grounded in potential. This is a speculative stock and should not be treated as one would a mature company. Many of these investment advisor yahoos try to apply traditional analysis to non traditional circumstances. I'm guessing most of us a betting that their pipeline is both legit and potentially lucrative....I don't know why else a person would be in this stock, though I'm sure someone could immediately prove otherwise on a small scale. Genentech hadn't turned a dime of profit when it was valued at over $40 a share. How many Internet companies are valued beyond comprehension with only 'possible' likelihood of ever turning a profit? We're betting on the come.
Why do you work so hard to be such a Richard? (In case you aren't clever enough to understand, Richard is another name for what?)
