also, there are far fewer terrorist attacks under Democrats. Something like 4 to 1. if I find the source again i will post it.
there were no buyers in the general market on Friday. no one wanted to hold stocks over the weekend with the rise in alert status. i noticed a lot of stocks suffered big selloffs the last few minutes -- as well as all day. NUTR did fantastic given the market conditions. i suspect the overall market conditions will rally next week. there is a good chance that the UN, France, and Germany hold the US down and find a more peaceful solution.
now that Bush is LEAVING next to NO MONEY for anything but war, all the smaller interests will now fight over the crumbs. $1.2 billion is crumbs, and WHILE he ignores everything else. 200 billion should go into ALL AE.. not a war. this is correction. sorry for the crappy typing.
now that Bush is living next to NO MONEY left for anything but war, all the smaller interests will now fight over the crumbs. 1.2 is crumbs, and not he ignores everything else. 200 billion should go into ALL AE.. not a war.
Bush said it would take 20 years, and was only committing 1.2 in five years, while no incentives for anything else in between? 200 billion for a war in Iraq over who is gonna control the oil?
Interesting to know that Daniel Pipes writes for The National Review. Thanks for the info. He is most obviously a racist w/fascist leanings.
In 1990, Daniel Pipes said: "Western European societies are unprepared for the massive immigration of brown-skinned peoples cooking strange foods and maintaining different standards of hygiene...All immigrants bring exotic customs and attitudes, but Muslim customs are more troublesome than most." (National Review, 11/19/90)
socrates. i was laid up in bed with a disability during that whole period, with my remote control. i watched everything, on every station, around the clock. it did not take me 6 months and the New York Times to notice that the Republicans were able to get ALL MILITARY VOTES, illegal or bogus or otherwise, counted, while screaming that Democrats were unpatriotic. add the scrub list. saying: Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel. it was also thought that the military ballots were stuffed, and all ballots that came in late were counted. that is why some have called this a military coup.
i could be wrong, but i believe that the Constitution only mentions THE CREATOR. and, UNDER GOD was added to the PLEDGE... perhaps under McCarthy, or was the the money? and FYI, the original pledge was written by a Quaker or Methodist Socialist who never wanted GOD mentioned in it. our founders wanted ANY religious belief to be respected. THE CREATOR could also be interpretted as evolution too. our founding fathers came he to practice FREEDOM of RELIGION as well as FREEDOM FROM any state religion. you really ought to take a lesson in democracy. but, perhaps religious states like what the Ayatollah ran in Iran is to your liking.
i just did a search for Daniel Pipes. what a biased extremist. and FYI, i just read that in all the history of Israel, these was the worst voter turnout. webrand, it takes two or more to have a war. and there is always two sides. you methodically fail to see the REASONABLE side of the Palestinians on every count, and ONLY express the propaganda that will make Israel look good. I recommend Naeim Giladi
and here is some info on the fascist Daniel Pipes.
infactoid, do you know the history of mustard gas? Are you aware we supported Saddam Hussien? Where were you in 1988 when the Kurds were killed? Why did you not care then? Why is it an emergency now when it was not in 1988? And why do you title your post to make it look like all Iraqis are responsible? Are you ignorant about the history of conflict between the Iranians and Iraqis? You are such a black and white simpleton.
If Arab Moslems are the ONLY ones guilty of religious extremism, then how does one explain the wacko fundamentalist Christians in America? Or the Jewish extremists and zionists who feel their position is defendable only based on a religious perogrative? How about the alliance between Christian and Jewish fundamentalists in support of Israel who point to Biblical prophecy?
and i forgot to add. many of these fundamentalist christians have formed ties with fundamentalist Jews, in some sort of self fulfilling Armegeddonist apocalpyptic end of times scenerio.
Jesse Ventura, ugh? yeah, sadly Minnesota lost its reputation on that one.
one of my best friends is from Minnesota. she is 85 today, grew up there. she just turned Green and is showing up with her other grey haired friends to anti war rallies.
her sisters still live in Minnesota. she is always complaining how things have changed. yes, as you know Adam Harkness runs the Lohas portfolio. the point was, i was posting stuff as i found it, AND, that these reits and new BUY ratings were being issued AFTER the case ruling. you should know better than anyone that patent, and even stockholder cases are a dime a dozen. i just think this case is not gonna go much further, and that Benghiat might shoot his foot again. the market sucks sunfund, even companies with good earnings and guidance, like ITRI are getting tortured. Bush is ruining this country, IMO.
"The court has not yet entered its judgment based on the jury's verdict. This is not expected to occur until late March after the court has ruled on a number of post-trial motions."
According to LeRoy Nosbaum, Itron's chairman and CEO, Itron continues to believe its original products do not infringe Benghiat's patent. "However, once the verdict was entered, a redesign became priority one at Itron." Nosbaum added, "even though we are confident that the judge or appellate court will vindicate our position, we did not want to risk any disruption to the flow of products to our customers."
