try to be honest. You cant get away with faux news krap.
reagan from 900 bill to 2.6 billion. This is nearly a triple idiot.
Bush Jr from $5 trillion to $10 trillion - this is a double idiot
Obama from $10 trillion to $20 trillion (my projection) - this is also a double idiot
Bush Sr increased national debt 50% over 4 years.
Reagan trippled national debt in 8 years. He was horrible
Bush Jr Doubled national debt in 8 years
CLINTON only increased national debt 30% in 8 years.
Obama will double national debt in 8 year just like both bushes.
Take a look at US debt it took off during reagans tax cuts. REpubs were all for this debt at the time.
Yeah, that is a concern with Keystone pipleline and LNG terminals.
Products will be exported and out prices will rise.
Surprised that coal has no PAC clout. Case seems easy to me. Lay off coal for 10 years while solar matures. Let coal compete with NG in the meantime.
A real buy order?
I have seen a lot of FAUX buy orders over the weeks on JCP probably symptomatic of HFT.
Entertaining to frequently see large buy orders like 100K disappear after not being filled as price drifts lower.
So if someone wanted to buy 100 K shares at $6.70 why would they NOT want to buy 100K shares 10 seconds later at $6.69, $6.68 if their $6.70 order was not filled?
Watch the tape. Sometimes the large orders pop up and down a few times per minute without being filled.
Ty guinto for the thumbs down. I hope you are reading the posts. You might learn something.
naw, I doubt it.
I recall a 60 minutes story that said Bush/Cheney's evidence of IRAQ WMD came from ONE individual that said Hussein had WMD. They didn't follow up the IRAQI's claims but accepted them at face value.
If they had followed up the persons claims, with human intel or sat intel, they would have uncovered flaws in what the IRAQI was telling them about the facility where Hussein was allegedly making or storing WMD.
So, in short, I think Bush/Cheney were looking for a reason to attack IRAQ
I think if there were a different president, the outcome would have been different with regards to attacking or not attacking IRAQ.
Of course most presidents would have become involved in AFGHAN but IRAQ, i am not so sure.
To bad Bush/Cheney didn't keep their IRAQ budget to the $2 billion they estimated. They pushed out their own man, Lindsay, that gave a $100 billion estimate in public for the expected cost of IRAQ war.
The ASE look better but, the ASe have a higher premium and therefore you can buy fewer ASE than Maples.
Lets assume that the premium differential over spot for Canadian maples versus ASE remains constant or nearly constant. This has been typical over last year, ASE usually command at least $1 more that Maples.
Maples have higher purity, are well known and have been updated for 2014 to be more secure.
SO if you want silver coins , had $1,000,000 to spend, you could probably buy 2200 more Maples than eagles.
It silver appreciates $20, that is a $44,000 difference. 4.4% difference by just choosing maples over ase.
I am not expecting energy prices to go through the roof. With US oil and NG supply, I expect them to be stable. Also if economy takes a hit then energy(oil) SHOULD be lower.
That said, NG had hit unsustainable levels at $2 in 2012. Today it returned to $5+.
"I will assume some small part of the blame myself"
Good, I was thinking about blaming you.
"but my reaction is presidents have little to do with the overall impact on debt, budgets, borrowing"
I agree somewhat HOWEVER, I do believe that the president sets the tone which could result in lower deficits.
For example, Bush W DECIDED to attack and occupy IRAQ and AFGHAN. They equated IRAQ with 911 terrorists, none of whom were from IRAQ. He set the tone by saying "either you are with us or against us", the warrantless wiretapping, etc.
NG increased at least $1 over this time last year. Cold weather continuing
NG drawdown continuing.
negatives: EPA, rails are ambiguous as to whether coal will see increased demand in 2014.
See this as at least a 3 month trade. May drop anytime I get 15-20%.
Bought some ACI and ANR today.
Of course coal can continue to go down with market.
I also give credit to senate and congress during clinton years.
Looks like Bush SR term, normalized to 8 years would have increased debt 100%.
So Bush Sr, Obama and Bush Jr are all equal IMO as far as debt is concerned. They all have or will increase debt by 100% over 8 years.
Reagan koolaid drinkers completely ignore that he tripled debt and was the president that launched the debt from being relatively flat to significantly positively sloped.
These are the people that spent our country's money.
Reagan, the Repub savior, cut taxes and borrowed the US into debt far greater than any other president in history when you exclude war time presidents.
Reagan increase Us debt 300% from 900B to 2.6 Trillion
Bush Sr Increased debt 50% in 4 years.
Clinton increased debt 30% in 8 years!!!
Probably greatest president ever.
Who knew that the best fiscal conservative was a democratic president??
W Bush Doubled national debt (100% increase) from $5 trillion to $10 trillion.
Obama is on path to double national debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion.
Is there a conspiracy by these repub to increase debt and buy gold?
maybe if they paid their bills instead of giving $3 trillion to IRAQ and AFghan we might not be in this position.
