    I was out of work without unemployment compensation between October, 2001 and December, 2003. I lost my job as a direct result of the tragedy on 9/11/2001. I was a contractor and not eligible for unemployment. The problem was that Congress passed The American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998 and the impact on labor in my profession started in 2001. Also, I wasn't paid for six months for work done in 1997 and 1998. The Democratic political ethics consultants I was working for didn't pay me for the program I wrote, even though I caught them quoting statistics from my program to a reporter in Missouri after they were involved in an elections scandal there. They hired John Ashcroft's law firm to defend them in Missouri's breach of contract lawsuit against them shortly before Mel Carnahan died in a plane crash. In death, Mel Carnahan defeated John Ashcroft for senator. He was the sitting governor at the time. Anyway, it took about four years an a lot of legal expenses to finally get paid.

    Anyway, good people can be out of work through no fault of their own. I have two family member who have been out of work for almost 8 years. The don't get unemployment. One worked for a church. Churches are exempt from unemployment insurance. The other is a veteran who lost his last job when Home Depot fired the American crew and hired illegal aliens with phony documentation to replace them.

    American needs to take care of its own citizens first. The labor dumping that has been occurring for the last 15-20 years is killing our economy. I remember when I was out of work I applied at Countrywide and the only people I saw working in their programming center were Indians and others who came here on H01b visas. Why is it that all the major corruption scandals occur where people on foreign work visas are employed? My theory is that corrupt managers and officers in the companies are getting kickbacks. Look at Enron and WorldCom. They were H1b havens.

    It's payable on the 17th of February.

  • Maker Shed has an exclusive contract with Radio Shack. I love their products and it is nice to see them in stores. I don't think any niche business can really exist only online. They need someone championing their products. They need a brick and mortar distributer.

    I just doubled my position after reading Mark Cola's statements regarding upcoming revenue. All of my shares were purchased under $0.06. I am opposed to a reverse stock split. It just encourages more dilution.

    Pilgrim's Pride is giving me a special dividend in an amount approximately the same that I originally paid for the stock. How could I be anything but overjoyed? It is all house money from here for me.

    Thank you all at Pilgrim's Pride! God bless you.

    In the past, I have always regretted not selling when this stock hits the 17s.

    Yes, but the effect of massive labor dumping on the US labor market during a time when the labor participation rate is the lowest in four decades will do a lot to dampen consumer's ability to afford goods and services put to market. As a user of cheap foreign work visa indentured servants in the United States, Prudential is part of the problem. Not to say the stock price won't continue to climb. Prudential is caught in a prisoner's dilemma, as all their competitors benefit from labor dumping, too.

    There is only one solution here. That is a national immigration moratorium.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I bought this stock at $5.99/share after reading about it in The Daily Reckoning. It dropped a little, then took off for a nice ride up to the low $30s. I saw it drop from there to the mid $20s, but held on. I saw it go back to the low $30s and was thinking the move was looking tired. Next thing I know I see it knocking on the door to the $40s. This is a fun ride for me. It is the best stock purchase I've made since KCS Energy at $3.20. Too bad I had to sell that at $2.20. KCS went down to $1/share before zooming up to the $40s and getting acquired.

    That stock is pricey and has had a recent run-up. I think you are on to something.
