Whispering has been saying for months that the acquirer would be Ingles Markets, based in Ashville, NC. This would be totally out of character for Ingles, which has shown no inclination to expand beyond its current market area in the Carolinas and Georgia. It's also about equal in size to WMK and would have to go into huge debt to do the deal. Makes no sense.
Yet, Ingles is way down today while WMK is up. Who knows?
fallenIQ, you have solved the world's problems. All governments should just print more money at an ever-increasing rate. Prosperity for everyone! We could also raise the minimum wage to $100 an hour.
You're a cinch to win the Nobel Peanut Prize!
Handed out to whoops of glee at Central Arkansas University......"take all you want" said the speaker. Obama's stash is limitless.....
You think this will get the students to buy insurance? LMAO.
The old broad will drink herself into oblivion before 2016. Start worrying about Elizabeth Warren. The leftards want to nominate her.
But in this case, the $450k isn't a campaign donation, so she doesn't even have to disclose who paid it. But even a halfwit knows it's either a donation or a de facto bribe. Because what on earth could she say that would be worth $450k?
"Reaffirming" the dividend would accomplish nothing. It's almost a sure signal that the dividend is shaky. It's like an athletic director saying that he is "100% behind Coach Bullneck". That's the signal for coach Bullneck to start packing his bags.
If your dividend is safe, you wouldn't have to assure the market that it's safe. They would already know.
The R's aren't raising the question. I am. Besides, the R's don't constantly rail about the rich. It's the liberals who do that, while at the same time they have no qualms about their own wealth. So, you see, I'm talking about rank hypocrisy.
Get it now?
To something called the Global Leadership Conference in Naples, FL. Who paid her? Obviously some group that wants a quid pro quo if she becomes president. And what a clever way to avoid campaign contribution limits. "it's not a contribution, you see. It's payment for services rendered."
Of course, one of her campaign themes will be "the growing inequality of incomes between rich and poor." While she grasps for the boodle with both fists.
Newgame: I saw pictures of they Iranian negotiator after the deal. He was smiling like a butcher's dog. That tells me he put one over on us. You, being a Bobo-worshipper, have been hornswoggled again.
Sounds like you've been tokin' dope. Better switch to wine. Have you seen the Cleveland team play? Who the he11 would go to watch them? I saw a crowd scene from yyesterday. Looked like maybe 15,000 people there.
Get a clue, Sparky.
