The Mrs. was quick to stand up and wave at every black band or dance group that passed the viewing stand.
But was distracted for some reason when white groups passed. Why is that?? Could she be a racist?
I hope not.
The dissention in this country on race, for the past 6 years, has increased a great deal. Why is that?
Why is the race card always brought up when maybe it shouldn't be?
Why am I now concerned when a group of kids in Philly walk down my block when it didn't phase me 6 years ago?.
Have I become over anxious? Or do I have good reason to be fearful.
A couple of ethnic groups have caused me to be on my guard, which shouldn't be.
My neighbors on my block feel the same way. It's a damn shame.
Why in h2e2l2l was he hired in the first place with his background clearly available to the company if a background check was made. If I was a family member of those two women I would like to know.
Many thanks to the executive who took him down. Thank God he had a weapon.
So many business's are being robbed daily around our country. By whom?? You guessed it, the perpetrators are those who fill our prisons but are looked upon as being racially profiled.
Those innocent business owners who use a weapon to defend themselves are then taken to task if they shoot someone. Then to top things off their business is destroyed by inside and outside perpetrators.
It seems to be the same. Some teenager is shot and killed. Great news stories.
But they fail to say the teenager is over 6 feet tall and weighs up to or more than 200 pounds.
And is capable to take down the average law enforcement officer.
Since you are so close to you know who, please tell him that the attack at Ft. Hood is a terrorist attack. NOT WORK PLACE VIOLENCE.
For crooks they already know where they are and how to get where they're going.
They will shut off the tracking app.
Yes it is good news and if it is correct then there will be a boost in price come Monday. Naysayers were not expecting sales in china until late in the year if not until 2015. THIS IS big news.
Interesting that the chinese govt. has confiscated hundreds of iphones that were purchased outside of china for resale on the mainland. I think the press showing chinese people in lines more than once buying multiple phones and then selling them right after for hundreds of dollars more put officials on alert. Some people have lost mucho dollars.
The big boys jumped on it once they found out Friday.
Unfortunately the little guys may not have seen it until yesterday.
Same ol same ol. A day late and a dollar short as the old saying goes
Right and wrong ACE. RAD is not the same company it was a few years ago when you predicted it's demise. If you invested a couple years ago you would be well ahead of the game.
On the right side I'll agree that management and employees are the key to success.
In my eyes I feel RAD is making some impressive moves.
But it's still a great short and long stock to make money in if you have mucho bucks.
Again, I tell the retail investors on this message board that you need a very strong stomach to be in these type stocks.
Nice to hear from you.
I always enjoy your comments from you. Since you and me are the long time message guys. For me though very very few messages unless I feel it's appropriate.
One thing I hope you will do and that is to keep the ACE name. It makes you less of an authority on RAD if you keep changing.
The vested period is the answer. In my case every 5 years after the options were granted I had the right to sell. So the question is, do you have monetary needs or plans for additional income? Which by the way most option holders do have. Or do you hold and hope things don't turn around to the point of losing the options if they go under water. YES these are planned sales by high salaried employees. The little guys like myself can exercise the options anytime after the vested period. They ( top executives) need to plan well ahead to stay within government guidelines.
Now we know it was no big deal at all.
So where is the news today regarding Apples new phones and those two gate issues are not a problem at all including the fix for ios8 within 36 hours. NOT much at all. It just goes to show you how many groups are against Apple. Especially SAMSUNG which stands to lose some headway against Apples new products.
Speaking about new products and upgrades wait for OCTOBERS announcements.
And once again expect some negative press.
What I learned was to expect a drop within days of the higher opening prices on any company that is talked up too high in the media prior to it's opening and then skyrockets above those expectations.
Google did this. It's a mirror image with BABA. I hit the buy button about the same price as Google went down within a couple days In the 80's. That's when I got scared out of Google.
I'm now in BABA hoping for the best.
What did I do with GOOG? I had to buy back in at a much higher price and sticking with it.
Ace, I never look at past performance. It doesn't predict the future.
Buy ten thousand shares or more as the stock goes higher. Do it over and over again until you have reached a level you feel comfortable with and then sell most of your holdings driving the stock back down, then you do it over again.
This has made some big investors lots, and lots of money. When the stock gets high enough for them, then the negative news starts hitting the press. Visa versa when it gets low enough to get back in.
It's a game wall street plays with a number of stocks. Not just RAD.
As far as the small retail investors like ourselves, you need to have a steel stomach in those type stocks.
For the big stocks, like apple, goog, tesla, netflix etc. That game of negative news and then positive news is the game that shorts and longs use on a daily basis.
No message board ever affects the big boys on buying or selling.
But the message boards can make small investors think twice before buying or selling their shares.
If you truly believe in RAD's future or any other stock for that matter hang in there.
If your skeptical and are investing funds you can ill afford to lose then you have a problem.
Wonder how that happened. Guy found in basement with self inflicted gun shot wounds????
If he started it could it be work place related? Or a new type of terrorist plot???
Checking his religious background would be a start.
Thankfully, AMEX has written off these charges to our card.
This was done by someone with 15 letters in their name. Had our address, name and card number which has been closed after calls from AMEX asking if these charges were authorized. Which they were not. Most if not all were made from a WFI suite in LA. In 47 minutes over $9,000 was charged.
AMEX said they will pursue this fraud but will not give us details to protect those involved if going to court.
Once again the public that has been screwed has to sit back while the crooks are never mentioned.
Since they are SUSPECTED criminals. What #$%$ is that.
Yes we are not hurt financially but this has got to stop. It needs to be an FBI attack on these crooks.
All of your health records, SS#'s are also being stolen.
AMEX as well as other credit card companies have fraud investigators, but why don't we hear about what they have uncovered and by whom??
Runner you need to study Samsung as well. Those dummies putting the larger Iphone in their pockets also learned a hard lesson as well. You didn't report on that.
Like I said above, clothing is being made to correct this.
Can you believe that the 6S is now driving new fashion? I guess you can't.
