Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong set a Wednesday deadline for a response from the government to meet their demands for reforms after spending another night blocking streets in an unprecedented show of civil disobedience.
A brief statement from the Occupy Central civil disobedience movement said it had set an Oct. 1 deadline for the city's unpopular Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying to meet their demands for genuine democracy and for him to step down as leader of Hong Kong.
It said they would "announce new civil disobedience plans same day."
Wednesday is a holiday for China's National Day, and even larger crowds are expected to flood the streets. The government said it was canceling a fireworks display planned to celebrate the National Day.

36 Senate elections are scheduled to take place on November 4, 2014. 33 are on the normal six-year cycle, with special elections in Hawaii, Oklahoma and South Carolina. The 36 seats are currently held by 21 Democrats and 15 Republicans. 5 Democrats and 2 Republicans have announced they are retiring and not seeking reelection; 1 Republican is resigning.
As a result of the special elections in Oklahoma and South Carolina, both Senate seats in those states will be up in 2014. Current outlook: Republicans net 10-15 Senate seats
after November 1, 2014 Republicans should have 60 seats and democrats should have 40 seats in the Senate
The national numbers indicate that Republicans should be on the verge of big House and Senate gains.
Let the door open and let everyone vote......
The Affordable Care Act says that starting in 2014, members of Congress and their staffs can no longer get their health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, as they have in the past. Instead, these federal employees will have to get insurance through the exchanges set up by the Affordable Care Act. Other Americans with work-based insurance aren’t subject to such a requirement. They can continue to get health insurance through their employers. Other federal workers, too, can continue to select health insurance plans through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. But not Congress.

The four most dangerous words in investing are "This time it's different".
Drug companies and healthcare are great investments
Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (LGND) I like this company alot. It is in a real sweet spot right in the middle of big Pharma
At first glance it looks much like a recession. Consumer spending declines, job creation stalls and the unemployment rate remains high. With prices dropping, the consumer’s incentive to buy today yields to an incentive to wait for cheaper prices tomorrow. That lack of demand further depresses prices, creating a deflationary spiral. And banks make it even harder for people and businesses to obtain loans given that the value of assets would follow the spiral downward.
One key difference between a standard recession and a deflationary cycle is that a recession, on average, lasts less than a year, but deflation can plague an economy over many years. Japan famously suffered nearly ten years of economic stagnation (the so-called “lost decade”) because of a long period of deflation that followed the bursting of an asset bubble in 1991.
This kind of environment would almost certainly put pressure on the price of hard assets, such as real estate and metals (although not necessarily gold, which moves in its own orbit). Deflation would also hurt corporate profits, which would be negative for most kinds of stocks.
So how do you prepare for the possibility of deflation without going overboard? If you don’t already have healthy cash reserves, now wouldn’t be a bad time to beef them up
Funds holding high-quality bonds pay regular income and should also rise in price if deflation takes hold.
Some stock-market sectors would perform poorly in a deflationary scenario. Among them are industries, such as lodging, airlines and autos, oil and refineries that have high overhead costs and experience big drops in revenue as prices drop.
Consumer staples, the stuff people buy regardless of the health of the economy -- food, soap, toiletries -- should also fare well in a time of deflation. Stuart Freeman, chief stock strategist for Wells Fargo Advisors Advisory Services, recommends PepsiCo (PEP, $66), which owns, among other things, its namesake beverage, Lay’s potato chips
This stock performed exactly the way I said it would perform. When the stock was at $59 the board actually believed it was going to $64. If you did your homework, you would of been way ahead of the game.
The problem with the markets is we keep raising target prices.
There was no need to try to push this company to $64 on $ 4 of earnings. I persoanlly dont care about VLO, but I do care about clean fuels. If every company meets this standard I thing VLO can do the same thing. Cost to come on board with the rest of the refinery industry is $3 billion to start. I do not like companies that book $250 million in good will as profit. This company sold everything they could sell. You made your money and you were a bit to greedy. Do not blame me...blame you. That is the real problem with america, no one accepts the consequences for thie actions.
You think you got it right, but when you are wrong it is always someone leses fault. Start getting it right...own it
They will not meet EPA standards for 4th quarter heating oil or desiel

WTI is falling to fast because OPEC wants to break $70 a barreel and drive out US competition and Canadaian sands competition
No way to hedge this one

TSO booked their profit differently but they still have to spend 3 to 4 billion to meet epa standards.
They could have a $10 loss this quarter
